— In-game description
Metal is a Copy Ability similar to the Stone ability introduced (and so far solely appearing) in Kirby: Squeak Squad. However, unlike the Stone power, Kirby can move around, jump (albeit much shorter jumps), and hover (very slowly). While Kirby is virtually invincible in this form, he cannot revert back to normal unless the copy ability is discarded. It can only be accessed by inhaling a Metalun, a Big Metalun or by touching a Copy Essence.

Metal Kirby retains his basic body plan, but has been totally transformed into metal, gaining angular features and a sleek silver appearance, though his cheek blush is still pink. When in ball form, he becomes completely smooth.
- Metal is the only Copy Ability which causes Kirby to move slower while climbing up ladders.
