Light is a Copy Ability exclusive to Kirby's Adventure and its remake, Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land. It is an uncommon ability, being acquired only from the rare Cool Spook enemy or via a Mix. Kirby's appearance does not change while in possession of this ability, although in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, like other abilities with limited uses, it will cause him to flash.
Unlike most of Kirby's Copy Abilities, Light cannot be used to attack enemies. Instead, using it causes the pink hero to launch a beacon into the air, which lights up the current room for as long as he is in it, revealing paths and sometimes hidden doors. Once used, the ability disappears. Although valuable in dim rooms, the beacon fired by the Light ability has no effect in rooms which are already lit up, making it entirely useless in most situations; presumably for this reason, the only enemy that naturally grants it is almost exclusively found in dark sections, and no Museum containing the Light ability exists.
|Kirby's Adventure||Dark areas can be spooky! This lets Kirby set off fire-works! It works only in the dark!|
|Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land||Brighten those dark corners! *Can only be used once.|
- Although the Light ability has yet to appear outside of Kirby's Adventure and its remake, pairing the Spark Copy Ability with Kine in Kirby's Dream Land 2 and Kirby's Dream Land 3 results in a combination that can be used for a similar purpose, lighting up areas to reveal hidden doors and symbols.
- In Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, the Light ability allows the player to see Kirby's blue irises. This is one of the few times these can be seen on Kirby's in-game sprite.
