Kirby gained the mysterious Mouthful Mode ability after he flew through that vortex... Now he can stuff an entire light bulb into his mouth! Illuminate your surroundings with the glow from your gullet. It's hard to move when you're lit up, so study your surroundings, go dark again, and wobble onward—carefully!
— Figure description from Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Light-Bulb Mouth is a Mouthful Mode that involves Kirby wrapping himself around a big light bulb in order to take control of it, allowing him to light up the surrounding area. This can be used on dark areas, and can also be used on switches that require light to activate. When Kirby is illuminating the area, he moves slower. This illumination also attracts the attention of Ghost Gordos, who will pursue Kirby whenever he is lit up.


  • A (or B) - Jump
  • B (or Y) - Illuminate: Kirby lights up the bulb, at the cost of moving slower.
