Poison is a Copy Ability that debuted in Kirby: Planet Robobot. It is obtained by swallowing Venog, or the Mid-Boss Miasmoros. 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 this ability are also 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.

Poison move-set.

  • One of the Poison Ability's attacks - 'Poison Pummel - Toxic Swamp' - is similar in look and function to the Nonstop Cutter attack ending with Final Cutter.
