|My sources say that there's a quirky kind of candy out there. It makes you so huge that you can just wade through blocks and enemies like they're nothing! But with such great power comes short duration. When your body starts to blink, act fast. Your jumbo rampage is nearly over!|
— Daroach, regarding Jumbo Candy, in Kirby Mass Attack
Jumbo Candy is a special variety of Invincible Candy which appears only in Kirby Mass Attack. When collected, it makes all Kirbys giant and invulnerable to enemy attack for a short time. It also allows them to trample enemies and break Metal Blocks they march over. While under the effect of Jumbo Candy, Kirbys are able to move faster and will instantly defeat any enemies they touch, as well as resist several hazards. They also all gain dour expressions and flash in multiple colors. Jumbo Candy wears off after a short amount of time, with a flashing indicator on the Kirbys to signal when the effect is about to end.
It should be noted that when under the effect of Jumbo Candy, the Kirbys will also destroy any Treasure Chests they run into, so caution is needed when using this, particularly in Green Grounds - Stage 9.
- Jumbo Candy is similar in function to Mega Mushrooms from the Super Mario series, and was likely inspired by them.
- "Chomping some Jumbo Candy is a lot of fun. The whole world is yours to smash! But when you're huge, you can't do everything you can when small. Who knew that candy had a downside?" --Daroach, in Kirby Mass Attack
