A Last Battle Ability[Japanese title] is a special ability used near the end of the game to defeat the final boss (or in some cases, the penultimate boss). The name and designation for most Last Battle Abilities comes from the Kirby Portal website, as they were not known to be officially considered such prior to then.

List of Last Battle Abilities[edit]

Other abilities[edit]

The following are used in "last battle" situations, but are not considered to be official Last Battle Abilities, in part because most of them are used elsewhere in their origin games:


  • While the term "Last Battle Ability" did not exist at the time of its release, 20th Anniversary Kirby Pupupu Encyclopedia features a small section on them under the title "Special Items" (特別なアイテム). This list only includes the Star Rod, the Rainbow Sword, the Love-Love Stick, Master, and Triple Star. The text also refers to these as "Legendary Items" (伝説のアイテム); the Magical Paintbrush is referred to as a Legendary Item elsewhere in the book, despite not being a Last Battle Ability.
  • Kirby: Triple Deluxe is the only main series game in the Kirby series to not feature a Last Battle Ability (excluding Kirby's Dream Land due to Last Battle Abilities not existing at the time of its release).
