Game appearances

Kirby Super Star (Ultra)

Artwork from Kirby Super Star Ultra

Mirror makes its debut appearance in Kirby Super Star, and also appears in its remake Kirby Super Star Ultra. The ability is obtained exclusively by inhaling a Simirror, though it can also be equipped in Milky Way Wishes through Copy Essence Deluxe. With Mirror equipped, Kirby can create Simirror as a helper. Kirby's visual appearance changes by becoming a lighter color and wearing a jester-style cap.

Kirby: Planet Robobot

After a long absence, Mirror returns in its first 3D iteration in Kirby: Planet Robobot, with the hat receiving a redesign to further distinguish it from Beam's hat. It is once again obtained from Simirror, and retains most of its functionality from Kirby Super Star, in addition to having new moves and functions. In addition, Kirby is able to make multiple copies of himself in a large spread attack or a vertical strike. However, the shield for Reflect Guard is not permanent as it is in Kirby Super Star. In addition to this, Mirror is also able to reflect projectiles back to enemies on different planes.

Kirby Battle Royale

First teaser screenshot of the Mirror ability in Kirby Battle Royale.

While Mirror was not included among the initial roster of Copy Abilities for this title, a Copy Ability Poll was held on the various websites for the game, to determine which additional abilities the fans wanted to be added into the game. The Mirror ability won the first poll, and shortly after, it was confirmed that the ability would be added into the game as free downloadable content.

The Mirror ability was added into the game on December 13th, 2017, pre-dating Battle Royale's release in North America by over a month.

Due to its status as a downloadable ability, Mirror does not have any Headgear to unlock. It is also not available in Dedede's Cake Royale.



  • When Marx splits in half to do his black hole attack, it resembles Mirror Kirby doing Mirror Body.
  • The Reflect Guard move, which surrounds Kirby with a bubble shield, is a possible inspiration for the fighters' Shields from the Super Smash Bros. games. Like those shields, the Mirror Guard bubble will eventually break if held for too long, though it won't daze Kirby when it does so.
  • The original design of the Mirror Hat - being a recolor of the Beam hat - was a result of memory limitations in the Kirby Super Star cartridge, which was one of the motivating factors for redesigning it for Planet Robobot.
