ESP Mode is one of the Robobot Armor modes. It transforms the hands on Kirby's mech, making them much larger and disembodied. They also become capable of flinging about many orbs of psychokinetic energy. These orbs can also conduct electricity. When charging an attack, the ESP Armor can hover along the ground, much like ESP Kirby.

  • The design of this armor actually blocks Kirby's view in front of him, thus supposedly requiring him to see through the shield with his mind.
  • This is the only armor mode based off a Copy Ability that debuted in the same game.
