— In-game quote

Jet Mode is one of the Robobot Armor modes. The Jet Mode transforms Kirby's mech into a free-flying jet with loads of missiles and gatling ammunition. When acquiring this mode, the armor flies off into a separate area of the stage and is controlled in a side-scrolling shooter style, moving automatically to the right. When this concludes, the armor crashes, and is not usable again. Due to its use in stages of the game, it cannot be discarded.

Frequent Fire
The armor fires bullets from its gatling gun.
  • Can be fired rapidly by tapping B, or fired in a three-shot volley by holding B.

Hold B a little longer, and then release
The armor fires three missiles with orange warheads in two directions:
  • two front missiles from the side launchers, one above and one below;
  • one back missile from the tail.

The charge time is about one burst of Frequent Fire.

Missile Spread
Hold B even longer, and then release
The armor fires four missiles in different directions:
  • one front missile with a big red warhead from the head launcher;
  • two front missiles with orange warheads from the side launchers like Missile Salvo;
  • one back missile from the tail.

The charge time is about two bursts of Frequent Fire.

The armor flies ahead into enemies while invincible. This attack is identical to Landia's Spiral Dragon attack. 40

Other appearances[edit]


  • According to a Robobot Armor pop quiz, the Jet Mode cannot be used to fly back to Dream Land[1]. This is likely because it tends to crash after a short time in use.
