|“||Blast off, Space Ranger! Fire laser beams from your trusty laser gun. If a fully charged shot hits an enemy, they'll be caught in a flurry of sparks and take extra damage!||”|
— Figure description segment from Kirby and the Forgotten Land
Space Ranger is an Evolved Copy Ability based on Ranger that appears in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. Kirby now wears a cyan astronaut helmet with a cartoonish antenna sticking out the top, and wields a ray gun with the ability to shoot laser beams. If fully charged, Kirby will instead shoot a giant blast of energy, similar to Plasma's fully-charged wave attacks.
The blueprint for Space Ranger can be found in the stage Conquer the Inferno Road, by shooting a Target Switch at the very end of the stage. Space Ranger is required to play the Treasure Road stage Shoot and Scoot! Conveyor Targets.
All attack names are taken from the Kirby and the Forgotten Land Perfect Support Guide.

Super Extreme Aim 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.|

|B in midair while moving||Kirby fires a multitude of short-range balls of energy in an upwards arc, starting below him. Each ball explodes into a crackle of electricity which damages enemies and launches them.|
