The self-proclaimed king's hard-hitting hammers are now yours! Let the power of the mask take over to unleash devastating attacks with a fiery flourish!
— Figure description from Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Masked Hammer is an Evolved Copy Ability based on Hammer that appears in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. Kirby wields a mask and two hammers akin to Forgo Dedede that are both fast and have the capability to deal heavy damage. These hammers also give Kirby the ability to launch fiery twister projectiles when using certain attacks that home in on enemies.

The blueprint for Masked Hammer is given to Kirby by Minion Waddle Dee on behalf of King Dedede after he appears in Waddle Dee Town (after the main Story Mode is completed). Masked Hammer is required to unlock and play the Treasure Road stage Attack! Masked Hammer Trial.


All attack names are taken from the Kirby and the Forgotten Land Perfect Support Guide. Applicable equivalent adapted English names from other games are listed in bold.

Masked Hammer moveset 
Move Button execution Description Damage[1]
Hammer Strike
B Kirby slams a hammer in front of him. 25
8 (stamp wave)
Wild Stamp
B + B after Hammer Kirby bashes the ground with his other hammer, and then bashes a third time with both hammers. The third hit produces 2 homing fire tornado projectiles which travel through enemies. 25 (Hammer hit)
8 (stamp wave)
51 (Wild Stamp hit)
12 (shockwave)
25 per hit (tornadoes)
Giant Swing
B in midair Kirby spins in a circle with both hammers out to harm enemies ahead. 25
Wild Meteor Stamp
Hold B after Giant Swing Kirby holds his hammers out, and boosts off the ground with them upon landing. Doing so produces 4 fire tornados radially which travel in an arc. 25
8 (stamp wave)
25 per hit (tornadoes)
Wild Tornado
Hold B and release Kirby charges up and spins around with his hammers, creating a twister and hitting multiple times for high damage. If charged more, it creates an orange twister effect, and deals more damage. If charged to the max, it creates a fire twister which has more range, and deals enormous fire damage. When reaching this charge level, the hammer heads will catch fire, dealing minor fire damage to enemies that touch them. Like in Kirby Star Allies, if the Hammer is charged for too long, the hammers will burn out and Kirby will be left holding the handles which only deal minor damage.
Unlike the Hammer Flip present in the other variations of the Hammer ability, this attack deals continuous damage over time.
51 per hit (uncharged)
102 per hit (mid-charged)
8 (Lv. 3 charge hits)
204 per hit (fully charged)
12 per hit (fire/overcharged)

Unlike the other evolutions of the Hammer ability, Masked Hammer's Wild Tornado is a wind elemental attack (plus fire at level 3 charge), which can solve wind-related puzzles.

Weapons-Shop Waddle Dee:
You can charge up the Hammer ability's power by holding down B. Let go at max power to unleash a brutal Hammer Flip attack! Woo! Oh, and you can also use the Hammer ability to, uh, hammer nails and case that wasn't clear.
