Star Allies Sparkler is a special Friend Ability in Kirby Star Allies, serving as the final weapon in this game. It is accessed at the very end of the Story Mode, and is used to battle Void Termina. It is very similar in function to the Friend Star, but bears a unique look and is used in a 3D space.

Overview

The Star Allies Sparkler doesn't fly per-se, but it can coast along the ground during the battle. It can also jump off the ground and again in the air to avoid Void Termina's shockwave attacks, and perform a dodging maneuver. Like the Friend Star, Kirby can swap out with his other allies to change the character of the blasts being fired. A special attack called 'Team Star Allies!' can be utilized in multiplayer mode if all players hold B, then release at the same time.

Bullets from the Star Allies Sparkler can have the elemental power based on the rider just like the Friend Star. In addition to Blizzard, Bluster, Sizzle, Splash and Zap, some Copy Abilities and characters also have their own variants. (See Power Effect#Friend Star / Star Allies Sparkler.) Void Termina's Blizzard/Sizzle/Zap attack effects can be negated by the respective weakness bullets from the Star Allies Sparkler.

The Star Allie Sparkler deals more damage the closer it's to Void Termina, but the damage of the team attack (Team Star Allies!) is not affected by the distance. In addition, when Void Termina's Angel Form (Phase 3) has 5 (full) and 2 health bars left, the Star Allies Sparkler can enter the "bullet time" when Void Termina is swooping, which slows down Void Termina's movement while increasing the fire rate and charge speed of the Star Allies Sparkler.

Trivia

  • The spikes on the back of the Star Allies Sparkler are reminiscent of the Dragoon.
  • The Star Allies Sparkler is formed using the power of the four magical spears which were formerly used to seal the Jamba Heart. These spears can be seen orbiting Kirby's Friend Star as it transforms into the Star Allies Sparkler.
  • The Star Allies Sparkler is the only Friend Action which can be used solo.
