— 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.

Trivia[edit]

  • Unlike most other modes, this one cannot be discarded, due to being required in each of the stages the mode is found in.
  • The Jet Armor greatly resembles a Capsule J2.
  • 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.
