|Super Charged Shot||Hold B for a longer time and release||Kirby fires an even larger and even more powerful laser shot. When this attack hits a wall, it leaves a large crackle of electricity which can damage enemies.|
|Black Hole Charged Shot||Hold B for an even longer time and release||Kirby fires an even larger and even more powerful laser shot that carries enemies along with it. When this attack hits a wall or boss, or moves too far, it forms a black hole-like sphere which deals major damage. As long as the black hole sphere is on the field, Kirby's charging time is doubled, however.|
