Plasma Wisp is a relatively obscure spectral entity from the Kirby series. When portrayed as a foe, its appearance is that of a floating green or blue flame with yellow hand-like appendages, and small, round, black eyes. When portrayed as a helper, it appears a greenish hue, except in Helper to Hero, as it appears blue.

Plasma Wisp makes its debut appearance in Kirby Super Star and also appears in Kirby Super Star Ultra. Plasma Wisp hovers around an unfixed area, projecting blasts of energy towards Kirby. It uses stronger attacks if Kirby is farther away. In its helper form, it possesses all the abilities of Plasma Kirby. When Kirby swallows it, or scans it with the Copy ability, he receives the Plasma ability.

Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U[edit]

Plasma Wisps appear as enemies in the 3DS-exclusive mode, Smash Run. They act much the same as they did in Super Star, and take a few hits to send flying.

In the Wii U version, a shadowy version of Plasma Wisp appears in several places during the Master Fortress fight.

"This glowing enemy from the Kirby series uses plasma to attack. In Smash Bros., it'll float up to a fighter and then fire off energy attacks. There are three different levels to its attack. Level-two attacks can stun you, while level-three attacks do more damage. Keep your eyes peeled for those attacks!" "This glowing enemy from the Kirby series uses plasma to attack.

Level two attacks can stun you, and at level three they do a lot of damage, so keep your eyes peeled for those attacks!"

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]
