Master is a Copy Ability in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror. It is obtained from Meta Knight's sword, the Galaxia.


Kirby & The Amazing Mirror[edit]

Sprite of Master Kirby.

This is the Master ability's first (and so far, only) game appearance. After Dark Meta Knight is defeated, a large vortex appears that leads to the lair of the game's final boss, Dark Mind. As the Kirbys jump into the vortex, the real Meta Knight, who is present, throws in his sword, Galaxia, to help the Kirbys. When the Kirbys land in Dark Mind's lair, Galaxia is there, plunged into a pedestal in the ground. When Kirby touches the sword, he automatically gets the Master ability.

Master is the strongest ability in the game. The ability can solve every puzzle in the game except for those that require Mini Kirby.

After beating the game, the ability becomes available in the Central Circle.

Subscreen explaining the Master ability.
  • In-game, the jewel on the hilt is red. However, official artwork erroneously shows the jewel as blue-green.
  • Kirby also wields Galaxia on two occasions in Kirby: Right Back at Ya! (in Hour of the WolfWrath and Crusade for the Blade) but with his Sword hat. The ability is unnamed, but the moveset is almost identical, so it is presumed to be this ability.
  • It's name may be a reference to the Master Sword from The Legend of Zelda.
  • Despite being similar to the Sword ability, the Master ability does not give Kirby a hat or other aesthetic change when obtained.
