Game Appearances

Kirby: Planet Robobot

The Halberd Mode appears at the very end of the story mode, after Star Dream announces its plans to eradicate all life in the universe. Meta Knight, freed from the thrall of the Haltmann Works Company, pilots it along with Kirby, who forms the head. They battle Star Dream using this mode.

This mode is also used to battle Star Dream Soul OS at the end of The True Arena.

Halberd Mode move-set.
Skill Button Execution Description
Combo Cannon

The Halberd fires a small very low damage star from Main Cannon #2 which, while weak per shot, can be held for rapid fire.

Shots reflect off shields and unbreakable debris.

Capture Inhale
B toward debris
The Halberd turns any destroyed objects (asteroids, robots, etc.) into ammo for the Planet Buster.

Won't work on segments of the Access Ark.

Planet Buster
Capture Inhale, and then A
The Halberd unloads its ammo in one go dealing a good chunk of damage to Star Dream. Higher levels of charge deal more damage.
Sail Wing
L/R
Does a barrel roll that deflects projectiles and provides a small amount of invulnerability.


Trivia

  • This marks the first time the player has ever controlled the Halberd in a Kirby game.
  • Though technically a dodging maneuver, Sail Wing can also be used to destroy various objects on the same plane, allowing them to be used as ammo for the Planet Buster cannon.
  • Sail Wing may be a reference to the barrel roll of the Star Fox series, as it can deflect Star Dream's shots.
