Ravel Ability

Ravel Abilities are a set of six different abilities that Kirby can obtain exclusively in Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. Ravel Abilities act similar to Copy Abilities from the main series titles, though they are not obtained from inhaling enemies. Instead, Kirby can find the hats out in the open in stages either being held by enemies or on their own and he will equip them on touch. If Kirby already has a Ravel Ability, it will be replaced by the new one he touches.

Ravel Abilities can also be discarded via "Unravel" by pressing X, which will cause them to bounce away similar to Ability Stars, and can be re-equipped if touched again. Much like most Copy Abilities, Ravel Abilities can be taken outside of the stages they are found in. However, Ravel Abilities cannot be used in the Neighbors' mini-games. Some Ravel Abilities are used alongside Kirby's standard Yarn Whip, while others replace it entirely.


There are six different Ravel Abilities in the game, which are as follows:

This ability allows Kirby to throw a bobbin attached to a string at his foes. This ability is similar to the Yo-Yo ability, though it functions a little differently.

This hat allows Kirby to create Yarn Balls at will without the need to wrap up an enemy. When wrapping up an enemy, the hat will produce extra large balls.

Marking Pins[edit]

This hat allows Kirby to spin around creating a wind vortex (similar to the Tornado ability) that defeats foes and draws in nearby beads. This ability replaces the yarn whip.

This ability gives Kirby a sword made of wire that can be used to slice and dice foes, even when underwater. It acts very similar to the Sword ability, and replaces the yarn whip.
