Spear is a Copy Ability which debuted in Kirby's Return to Dream Land that grants Kirby a sturdy spear to jab his enemies with. Using the spear, Kirby can easily strike enemies and objects at a safe distance, as well as through walls. Spear is exceptionally useful underwater, allowing Kirby to strike in all four directions, and reach areas where most other abilities could not. Kirby can also toss his spear like a javelin, causing it to move forward, then down in an arc (and unlike the Hammer ability, Kirby will not lose the spear when doing so).

When Kirby acquires the Spear ability, he gains a hat which resembles a soldier's headband. Like other abilities featuring sharp utensils, Spear is capable of cutting Ropes.

Game Appearances

Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Spear debuted in this title, being obtainable from the enemies Pierce and Lanzer. Here, Kirby is able to spin his spear around rapidly, and take flight like a helicopter for a brief moment. Bandana Waddle Dee also uses a spear, and has a similar move-set.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Spear returns in this title, though it loses the Triple Throw move for the sake of balance.

Kirby Battle Royale

Spear is one of the abilities that can be chosen from in this competitive multiplayer title. It is similar to Sword, though it focuses more on pinpoint accuracy and range, as opposed to Sword's wider area of attack. In addition, the spear can also be tossed for a quick and effective attack at range.

Spear does not appear in this game as a Copy Ability, but Bandana Waddle Dee wields one as his weapon, thus being an effective version of the Spear ability in this title.
