Friend Throw is a Friend Ability present in Kirby Star Allies. To perform it, all Kirby has to do is approach one of his Friends with the Beetle, Fighter, or Suplex abilities equipped and have the player hold up on the Control Stick (or directional buttons or + Control Pad) until a friend jumps into Kirby's hand. Doing so correctly, Kirby will pick up his friend and toss them, causing the friend to ricochet off of walls and damage any enemies in the way for a few seconds. This ability is capable of breaking metal blocks and stone blocks. Beetley, Knuckle Joe, Bugzzy and Gooey can also use this ability.
While in the state of being thrown, the friend is invulnerable to most forms of damage. When using Beetle Kirby or Beetley to perform this move, the thrower can also move around before tossing.
- Friend Throw's Japanese name (ブンナゲフレンズ) is derived from the Japanese name of Beetle's 'Quick Throw' attack (ぶんなげ). This reference is kept in the Chinese version of Kirby Star Allies.
- Beetle's 'Quick Throw': 力投 (Power Throw)
- Friend Throw: 力投盟友 (Power Throw Friend)
