Friend Star (also called Friends Star) is a situational Friend Ability present in Kirby Star Allies. It allows Kirby and his friends to ride a special winged star which can be steered freely through the air and allows them to fire powerful projectiles at enemies and hazards in their way. To activate this ability, a special pedestal must be found in the stage, and four Friends are needed (including Kirby).

Overview

While riding the Friend Star, one of the four friends takes the lead, and the leader can swap out with another mid-flight. Depending on the power of the friend at the head, the projectiles fired will take on the character of that power. (See Power Effect#Friend Star / Star Allies Sparkler.) For example, if Chilly takes the lead, the projectiles fired will be Ice-based. The Friend Star has a health bar of its own, and if depleted, all four Friends will be KO'd at once.
