Snow Bowl is a Super Ability available in Kirby's Return to Dream Land and its remake, Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe, obtained by defeating a Super Chilly. By gaining the ability, Kirby gains a hat resembling a soft ice cream cone with a large crystal pattern and a star on the front.


Upon use, Kirby transforms into a large snowball, which can roll around and jump.

By giving the Wii Remote a shake, the snowball gains a burst of speed and careens across the stage, instantly defeating any enemy in the way and destroying star-marked terrain and objects.

Once the snowball hits a wall or runs out of steam, or the player presses 1, it bursts, sending the previously-defeated enemies scattering and freezing any others that happen to be nearby.
