Mike is a Copy Ability that Kirby can obtain. When it is equipped, he is able to sing three times, defeating all enemies on-screen, each time. In more recent games, the Mike defeats enemies in its range, but nowhere else. The first two attacks strike in a relatively straight line, while the third attacks all enemies, as it originally did. This ability can be obtained by swallowing a Walky and Mr. Tick-Tock.

In Kirby's Dream Land, the microphone is an item that Kirby can inhale. When he spits the mike out, however, the microphone's projectile will defeat all enemies it comes in contact with.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Adventure / Nightmare in Dream Land[edit]

In Kirby's Adventure and Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, Mike is obtained from Mr. Tick-Tock, and can be used 3 times. Each time it is used is visually different, but the effect is the same, defeating all common enemies on screen and dealing large damage to bosses and mid-bosses.

Kirby Super Star (Ultra)[edit]

In Kirby Super Star and the game's remake, Kirby Super Star Ultra, Mike is now obtained from Walky. There is no Helper for the Mike ability, nor can it be obtained via Copy Essence Deluxe.

Kirby Air Ride[edit]

In Kirby Air Ride, Kirby can obtain the Mike ability from Walky, by collecting the Copy Panel in City Trial, or by using a Copy Chance Wheel or Mix. When he gets the ability, he automatically uses it, shouting once loudly into the desk mike to defeat nearby enemies and heavily damage and launch other racers.

In Top Ride, the Mike appears in item form and has the effect of stunning all racers on the track for a moment.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land[edit]

In Kirby's Return to Dream Land, Mike returns as a limited-use ability, now gaining a regular hat that resembles the one used during the Desk Mike shout. It is once again provided by Walky. In addition, Mike gains a new variant on the third shout called "Encore" which can be activated by charging up the last shout by shaking the Wii Remote or mashing the Control Pad before releasing it.

In Kirby: Planet Robobot, Mike can be combined with the Robobot Armor to create Mike Mode. Unlike the base ability, Mike Mode is not limited-use, and involves shooting out powerful sound waves from giant boom boxes to defeat enemies.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse[edit]

In Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Mike Kirby cameos in the Music Room, but is not a usable ability in the game itself.

Kirby Battle Royale[edit]

While Mike isn't a playable Copy Ability in Kirby Battle Royale, it makes a cameo in Music Collection menu.

Kirby Star Allies[edit]

In Kirby Star Allies, Mike retains its moveset from the previous three games. It also has a new Friend Ability called Fatal Chorus where Kirby and his friends join in chorus to shout a loud chord, dealing even more damage than Stand Mike & Encore.

Quote1.png I forgot how terrible Mike Kirby's singing is! Quote2.png
— Tiff, from Fitness Fiend

The Mike ability appears in two episodes of the anime series Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. The first appearance is in Abusement Park, when Kirby inadvertently eats Walky while trying to inhale a picture of a watermelon on a television screen. When Kirby has the Mike ability, he is filled with the urge to sing, which is so loud and destructive that it can destroy buildings and defeat monsters. In Abusement Park, Mike Kirby is sent through the Night Mare Enterprises Teleporter in order to be ganged up by monsters in eNeMeE's Fortress, but his singing is so powerful that each monster is destroyed, and the N.M.E. Sales Guy is forced to send him back, where his singing then destroys Castle Dedede.

In Fitness Fiend, Kirby inhales Max Flexer's microphone after enduring his dangerous fitness routine. When he gains the Mike ability, he starts to sing again, destroying Castle Dedede for a second time and defeating Max Flexer in the process.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U trophy[edit]

SSB4 Cover.png Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Curious what Kirby's singing voice sounds like? Then track down and inhale Mr. Tick-Tock or a Walky! Kirby can copy the Mike ability and then use a mike or megaphone to really let 'er rip. Sometimes he sounds as cute as he looks, but he can also hit those low notes when he wants to rock.

Trivia[edit]

  • Mike Kirby in Kirby's Adventure uses the same sound effect King Dedede makes when he is defeated in Kirby's Dream Land. The sound returns in Kirby Super Star, albeit only for the Megaphone.
  • In Kirby Super Star, the scream Kirby makes with the Stand Microphone was voiced by Masahiro Sakurai. According to him, he says "Chesto!", which is a Japanese battle cry originating from the Satsuma province (now Kagoshima).[1]
  • When Kirby sings his reprise of Kihon wa Maru in Abusement Park, it is possible to hear a sad horn. He even warps the wormhole as he travels through it.
