|“||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 names are conjectural.

|Shot||B||Kirby fires a laser shot from his ray gun. When this attack hits a wall, it leaves a small crackle of electricity which can damage enemies.|
|Charged Shot||Hold B for a short time and release||Kirby fires a larger, more powerful laser shot. When this attack hits a wall, it leaves a crackle of electricity which can damage enemies.|
|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.|
|Rapid Fire Energy||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.|
|Counter Shot||B after dodging an attack||Kirby fires three laser shots at once from his ray gun towards the enemy. This can be used up to three times immediately after dodging.|
