|“||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 names are conjectural.
|Masked Hammer moveset|
|Hammer||B||Kirby slams a hammer in front of him.|
|Triple Hammer||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.|
|Giant Swing||B in midair||Kirby spins in a circle with both hammers out to harm enemies ahead.|
|Hammer Jump||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.|
|Twister Hammer Flip||Hold B for a short time and release||Kirby charges up and spins around with his hammers, creating a twister and hitting multiple times for high damage.|
|Super Twister Hammer Flip||Hold B for a moderate time and release||Creates an orange twister effect, and deals more damage than Twister Hammer Flip.|
|Fire Twister Hammer Flip||Hold B for a long time and release||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 Flip attack 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 other evolutions of the Hammer ability, Masked Hammer's Twister Hammer Flip is an elementally wind attack (plus fire at Lv3 charge), which can solve wind-related puzzles.
