— Kirby Star Allies quote

Spider is a Copy Ability that debuted in Kirby Star Allies which allows Kirby to ensnare his enemies in thick webs, encasing them in cocoons which he can then kick out of the way, much like when enemies are frozen using the Ice and Freeze abilities (bosses and mid-bosses cannot be encased, and will instead take damage while touching a web). When Kirby has the Spider ability, he gains a purple top hat with spider eyes and web decals, along with small 'legs' that hang off the rim. In addition to ensnaring enemies, Spider Kirby can also use his webs as trampolines to perform the Friend Bounce technique. As implied by the name, these webs can also be used by Kirby's friends.

Spider is obtained from the enemy Como (who up to that point never provided an ability), and Como also serves as the ability's representative friend.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby Star Allies[edit]

Using Spider, Kirby can wrap foes up in cocoons and then kick them as projectiles to hit other enemies.

Spider made its debut in Kirby Star Allies. Using this ability, Kirby can ensnare his foes in webs and kick them aside or toss them, and can create web trampolines which he can use to bounce himself and his friends safely through hazards and toward objectives. Kirby can also wrap himself in silk for protection, with any enemies touching the guard pod taking damage from spikes that jut out from the pod. In addition to Spider Kirby and Como, Taranza also has some elements of the Spider ability in his move-set, along with his own Friend Bounce.
