Poison is a Copy Ability that debuted in Kirby: Planet Robobot. It is obtained by swallowing Venog or Miasmoros the Mid-Boss. When acquiring this ability, Kirby obtains a skull-adorned headband, with poisonous fluid spewing out the top, similar to other fluid-based hats.

The attacks Kirby gains with the Poison ability are similar to the Water ability. However, enemies hit with this attack are continually damaged for a period of time. Among the attacks are simple spewing moves, a geyser-type move, a surfing move that leaves puddles of poison on the ground and allows Kirby to glide over water, a Cutter-like series of punches involving poison, and exhaling clouds of toxic gas. The gas clouds in particular linger for a good while, and can be pushed by wind currents in some stages. Like the Water ability, all attacks from Poison can put out Fire Blocks.
