Perhaps one of the most well-known Copy Abilities and often the first seen in games it appears in, the Beam ability.

Copy Abilities are enhancements Kirby is able to obtain in many of his games, normally by inhaling and swallowing enemies (or in the case of Kirby's Dream Course and Canvas Curse, simply hitting them), activating Copy Essence Deluxes, or touching Copy Essences. Copy Abilities are a defining aspect of the Kirby franchise, but do not appear in the first game, Kirby's Epic Yarn, or Kirby Mass Attack and are also absent from some of its non-platforming installments. The ability gained will match that of the enemy or item swallowed. For example, if Kirby swallows Sir Kibble, then he gains the Cutter Copy Ability and, depending on the game, may assume a similar appearance to the foe.

While Copy Abilities enable Kirby to use a range of new skills, most of them deprive him of his inhaling power. Kirby usually loses the ability he possesses when he takes damage and is also able to discard it at any time if the player presses a specific button. Both of these normally result in the ability's bouncing away in form of a star, which can be inhaled and swallowed to regain it. Some abilities (usually the most powerful ones) may be limited in duration or number of uses or are only available during certain parts of a game, disappearing once they have been used up or Kirby leaves the section they are restricted to.

In some games, Kirby can utilize Copy Abilities in special ways, such as combining them with Animal Friends or with one another to create new powers or creating a helper based on the ability, which assists him in battle.
