Metal is a Copy Ability introduced in Kirby: Squeak Squad. Instead of giving Kirby a unique hat like most other copy abilities, Metal completely transform his body into metal, giving him angular features and a sleek silver appearance, though his cheek blush is still pink. This ability makes Kirby invincible to most kinds of damage, including from hazards such as lava, but in trade Kirby moves slower, jumps shorter jumps, and is given few attack options.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby: Squeak Squad[edit]

Metal makes its first, and so far only, appearance in Kirby: Squeak Squad. It can be accessed by inhaling a Metalun, a Big Metalun or by touching a Copy Essence. Similar to Ghost, Metal will not change to monochrome when the Chalk Spray Paint is active.

Without its Ability Scroll, Metal has only one move which allows Kirby to pound down stakes and break through metal blocks beneath him. If the Ability Scroll for Metal is obtained, Metal Kirby is granted a second move which turns Kirby into a smooth metal ball when activated, allowing him to roll down hills much more quickly than he would otherwise be able to move.

The following lists both of Metal Kirby's attacks. Attack names are taken from the Kirby: Squeak Squad Nintendo Official Guidebook.

Kirby: Squeak Squad manual[edit]
