|These increase your speed for a little while!|
— Kirby Fighters 2 loading screen tip
Dash Shoes are items that can appear during battles in the Kirby Fighters games. When a fighter touches this item, he gains much greater movement speed and jump height for a while. Despite the plural title, the item is represented as a singular blue shoe with a yellow star and wing-like frill as decoration.
When picking up the Dash Shoes, a fighter will gain greatly increased walking/running speed and be able to jump much higher for over ten seconds. While this effect is active, the fighter emanates a bright blue glow, and does extra flips while jumping. This speed boost does not apply to any form of hover or to attacks that involve movement.
In addition to the Dash Shoes themselves, this effect can also be granted by the Action Star and the Cheer Pom-Poms. As such, Dash Shoes do not stack their effect with the Cheer Pom-Poms, and will do nothing if picked up while under the pom-poms' effect.
In Story Mode: The Destined Rivals
In Kirby Fighters 2's Story Mode: The Destined Rivals, there is a special battle condition referred to as a "Speedy Stage". During these battles, all participants have a permanent Dash Shoes effect, though the item itself is never directly involved. Clearing this form of stage grants the player 100 additional points.
