A Power Combo is a type of Special Ability present in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. Exclusively in that game, Kirby can combine two regular Copy Abilities (including two of the same ability) to create a Power Combo, with each different combination resulting in a unique result.
Obtaining Power Combos
Power Combos can be obtained in the following ways:
- Inhaling two ability-wielding enemies at the same time, and swallowing them.
- Inhaling an ability-wielding enemy, and spitting it out at another ability-wielding enemy. This will create an Ability Star of the applicable Power Combo (specifically called a "Combo Star"), which Kirby can inhale and swallow to obtain the Power Combo.
- Alternatively, Kirby can instead hold up the enemy and throw it instead of spitting it out to create the Combo Star.
- When already in possession of a regular copy ability, discarding and lifting up that ability's Ability Star, and throwing it an an ability-wielding enemy. This will also create a Combo Star, which Kirby and inhale and swallow to obtain its Power Combo.
The only Power Combo that cannot be obtained in those ways is the game's Last Battle Ability, Ribbon's Crystal. Instead, the ability is automatically obtained by Kirby once the battle with 0² in Dark Star begins.
Since copy abilities can be combined with themselves, but always result in the same power regardless of order, there are 28 (7+6+5+4+3+2+1) standard Power Combos. Adding Ribbon's Crystal, this makes for a total of 29.
