Recovery Ring is a device found in Kirby Mass Attack and Dedede's Drum Dash Deluxe. It takes the form of a ring or hoop that floats in midair and restores the health of any playable character that passes through it.
Kirby Mass Attack
||You'll find rings, like the one shown to the right, in many stages. If a blue Kirby passes through a Recovery Ring, his health is restored and he turns back to his original pink color.
— Daroach, Kirby Mass Attack Instruction Booklet (North American English version), page 13
Recovery Rings are very common in Kirby Mass Attack and can be found in every non-boss stage as well as the lobby of Survival Rush. They are pink and have a gold outline, an insignia of a star in the middle, and sparkles all around. If the player flicks or drags one or more Kirbys through the ring, any damaged blue Kirbys will regain their health and pink color. There is no limit to how many times a player can use a Recovery Ring. However, the ring has no effect on Kirbys that are already at full health. It also cannot be used to revive KO'd Kirbys.
Dedede's Drum Dash Deluxe
Recovery Rings make a second appearance in Dedede's Drum Dash Deluxe. Here, they resemble blue hoops with one bell on either side and a red heart floating in the middle. King Dedede can jump through these rings to regain a portion of health, but they can only be used once. When used, the Recovery Ring makes a jingle sound and disappears. Recovery Rings can be found in all normal levels except for Floral Fields. While most levels have only one Recovery Ring, the levels Boarding the Halberd and C-R-O-W-N-E-D have two each. There are no Recovery Rings in any of the secret levels.
