Staff (known as Stick in Japan) is a Copy Ability that debuted in Kirby: Star Allies. It gives Kirby a long stylized pole which can extend when performing certain attacks, giving Kirby a long reach. He can also use the staff like a gymnast's pole, performing attacks that send him into the air upon execution. Staff can be imbued with various elemental augments like Splash and Zap, and can also hit enemies and other objects through walls, as well as be used underwater.

  • The design of the Staff copy ability is based on Sun Wukong, the Monkey King from Journey to the West who wields an extendable staff and has a circlet design similar to that of Staff Kirby.
