— Kirby Star Allies quote

Spider is a Copy Ability that debuted in Kirby Star Allies. The Spider ability 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.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby Star Allies[edit]

Spider debuts in this title. The webs that Kirby throws out can also be used as trampolines by Kirby and his allies. With a friend, Spider Kirby can use a technique called Friend Bounce, wherein the friend can launch from Kirby's web and pass through obstacles above safely, similar to the Hi-Jump ability. It is obtained from Como, who also can use this ability when recruited as a Friend. It gives both Kirby and the Como Friend a purple top hat with spider eye and web decals, along with small 'legs' that hang off the rim. Taranza the Dream Friend shares part of the Spider ability, including Friend Bounce.
