Poison is a Copy Ability that has so far appeared exclusively in Kirby: Planet Robobot. It is obtained by swallowing a Venog enemy, a Dakuga enemy, or the Miasmoros Mid-Boss after defeating it. When acquiring this ability, Kirby obtains a skull-adorned headband, with poisonous fluid spewing out the top, similar to other fluid-based hats. The rim of the headband has a color pattern very similar to that of coral snakes, which are known for their dangerous venom.

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 Final 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 Flame Blocks.
