Cook (misnamed Chef in the Kirby: Triple Deluxe keychain) is an ability gained by absorbing two enemies at once or by swallowing Chef Kawasaki or Cookin. It allows Kirby to put all enemies and stars on screen into a pot and produce food.[1]

Game Apperances

Kirby Super Star (Ultra) and Kirby & The Amazing Mirror

Artwork of Cook Kirby from Kirby Super Star Ultra.

Kirby's physical appearance in Kirby Super Star Ultra changes only with the addition of a chef's hat. When activating the ability an animated scene begins with Kirby donning a chef hat and conjuring a large gold colored pot. The pot pulls all on screen enemies and stars in then Kirby seasons and stirs the now burning pot. Kirby will raise his arms indicating completion and as many snacks as things in the pot will burst out.

The Cook Copy Ability is one of the few powers that has a limited use[2] and affects all enemies on screen. After using the cook ability once, Kirby returns to his regular state. Kirby cannot produce a helper using this Copy Ability.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Cook is Kirby's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, where nearby enemies get sucked up into a pot and are cooked. After he is done, the enemies sucked in and some health restoring food are released.

Kirby's Final Smash is replaced by Ultra Sword in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS, however.

Kirby Star Allies

In Kirby Star Allies, Cook ability returns in Kirby main-series.

Cook is still a single use ability for Kirby, but now Kirby can charge his cook attack into a powerful soup attack called 'Souper Supper'. Kirby hums to himself while cooking with this ability. He hums one of two different short tunes based on his charge level.

Cook's Moveset in Kirby: Star Allies
Skill Button Execution Description
Cook Pot
Kirby summons his cook pot to suck every common enemy, projectile, and defeated body of the Mid-Boss on the screen into it.
Kirby is invincible during the whole cooking process.
When the cooking is finished, everything sucked into his pot will pop out as food instead, and Kirby's Cook ability disappears.
If there is nothing to suck into the pot, Kirby won't use up his Cook ability.
Souper Supper
Hold B
In addition to sucking everything he can into his pot and cooking them into food, Kirby will launch a huge stream of hot soup from his pot, which deals massive damage.
Same with 'Cook Pot', Kirby's Cook ability disappears when the cooking is finished.

Chef Kawasaki also returns as a Mid-Boss and a Friend Helper in Star Alllies. He can now use the Cook ability an unlimited number of times as a Friend (but with a cooldown timer), and also has the ability to toss dishes at opponents as a quick attack.

Both Kawasaki and Cook Kirby can also use the new Friend Ability Cook Potluck to launch friends out of the pot.
