Needle-Needle is a Power Combo that appears in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. When Kirby combines two Needle Copy Abilities, he will receive an upgraded version of the Needle ability, although he cannot be in this state for as nearly as long as he could with a single Needle ability. Upon use, Kirby will be, instead of spikes, covered in various sharp objects, such as a bee stinger, a nail, a compass, a sharpened pencil, a corkscrew, a medical syringe, an Opuntia cactus, and a three-pronged fork. Despite the aesthetic difference, the main advantage of this power combo over its normal counterpart is its greatly increased range, covering an area much larger than Kirby in his normal state. It should be noted that while the pointy instruments cover Kirby's body, he can stick to walls for a short time.

Like the other abilities in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, this ability does not change Kirby's physical appearance in any way until it is used.


The beta version of Needle-Needle, with a tuning fork on the far right.
  • In a beta screenshot shown before Kirby 64's official release, Needle-Needle has a slightly different appearance. The rightmost object, instead of a cactus, is a two-pronged tuning fork that is dark gray in coloration. This appears to be referencing the Spear of Longinus from the Japanese anime Neon Genesis Evangelion.
