- This article is about the Last Battle Ability from Kirby Super Star / Kirby Super Star Ultra. For Kirby's spaceship in the anime series, see Kirby's Starship.
Kirby's Starship is used in the Nova stage in the Milky Way Wishes stage of Kirby Super Star and its remake. Originally known as the Shooting ability, the Starship forms by combining the stars from each planet Kirby has visited, allowing Kirby to chase down Galactic Nova as he tries to grant Marx's wish to control Pop Star. In this manner, the Starship is considered a Last Battle Ability akin to the Star Rod. It resembles a winged chariot with a star on its front and sides.
While riding the Starship, Kirby is capable of rapidly firing stars at his opponent and flying at impressive speeds. However, the Starship is not capable of flying through enemies but rather is much better at evading them and bombarding them with star-like projectiles. In Kirby Super Star Ultra, the Starship is also used to fight Kabula, King Dedede's airship guardian.
In co-op mode, a unique Starship-based character appears as player 2's character. It somewhat resembles a bird with glossy blue eyes and a "beak", as well as exhaust pipes emerging from its back, but still retains the star-shaped design of Kirby's Starship. It controls identically to Kirby and is considered a Helper, but cannot be summoned outside of co-op mode.

- The Starship's description in the Japanese version of Milky Way Wishes has an extra line at the end: "Let's take care of Marx's mad plan first, then eat a meal and take a nap." This line has been referenced in several later games in the series, most notably with Star Dream Soul OS's final phase (only in the Japanese and Korean versions) and Void Termina's fourth phase.
- In Kirby Super Star Ultra, when Starship is first used, the 7 stars collected from the planets of Milky Way Wishes summon it, but in the fight against Kabula, the three Sparkling Stars obtained from the previous levels of Revenge of the King summon it.
