— Ranger's figure description in Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Ranger is a Copy Ability that equips Kirby with a hunter's cap that has a star-shaped headlamp on it (which is only for aesthetic purposes) and a small blunderbuss that shoots stars. This ability allows Kirby to attack foes by firing at them in various ways, and also allows for very long-range attacks. This ability made its first (and so far only) appearance in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. Ranger also has two Evolved Copy Ability forms, those being Noble Ranger and Space Ranger. Ranger and its variants are the only abilities that are able to hit the Target Switch.
