A Final Smash is considered to be the ultimate finishing attack in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U. Each fighter has one, though it can only be unleashed by acquiring the Smash Ball and then using a neutral-special attack. Said attack will be replaced with the Final Smash. After using it, the fighter cannot use it again unless another Smash Ball is obtained.

Each fighter from the Kirby series has a unique Final Smash, though some possess different ones in different games, the following are summaries of each Final Smash by character.


Cook Kirby

Kirby's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Based on the Cook ability from Kirby Super Star, this is Kirby's Final Smash in Brawl. When activated, he dons his chef hat, pulls out a big gold cooking pot and some implements, and bangs them together, sucking in all nearby opponents and items. Opponents caught are trapped, simmered and stewed for a moment, taking gradual damage, until Kirby is finished cooking, upon which they are launched upward. Items that were taken in become food that Kirby can use to lower his damage percentage while his opponents are launched.

Ultra Sword

In Smash 4, Kirby uses the Ultra Sword ability from Kirby's Return to Dream Land. When activated, he pulls out the sword and makes an initial swipe. Any opponent he hits is then trapped, allowing him to follow up with several more swipes, finishing off with one big slash that sends them flying. While this move does not produce items like Cook Kirby, it is significantly more powerful in terms of damage and knockback.

King Dedede

Waddle Dee Army

In Brawl Dedede whistles, then proceeds to dance as several of his subjects, Waddle Dees, Waddle Doos, and Gordos flood the stage. Opponents hit by this army take considerable damage, especially if they hit a Gordo. As this move can be activated anywhere with the same effect, it is also relatively easy for opponents to dodge.

Dedede Burst

In Smash 4, Dedede activates this move by first inhaling to trap his opponents. He then proceeds to clobber them with several large hammer swings, and finishes by having an unexpectedly large bomb pop out of his hammer and explode on them, sending them flying. Functionally, it is similar to the Ultra Sword Final Smash from Kirby.

Meta Knight

Galaxia Darkness

Meta Knight uses this move in both Brawl and Smash 4. It is activated when he throws his cape out while proclaiming either "Behold!" or "Know my power!". If he catches someone with it, the screen goes dark and time slows for a moment. Then everyone on the stage (allies included) is hit by successive swipes from the Galaxia, with the largest hit made on the one trapped.

Meta Knight later went on to be able to use this move as a special attack in the Kirby series itself, in Meta Knightmare Returns.


  • While both of Kirby's Final Smashes are based on things he can do in his home series, neither of King Dedede's moves are. Meta Knight's Final Smash, however, has the distinction of originating in Smash Bros., then making it into the home series later on.
