Curling (also known as Stone-Ice) is a special combination ability that debuted in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. Using this move causes Kirby to transform into a curling stone and slide across the ground, defeating any enemy he comes into contact with.

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

Kirby utilizing Curling

In Kirby 64, Curling is obtained by combining the Stone and Ice abilities together as a Power Combo. From there, Kirby need simply activate it to go sliding, freezing any foe in his path. While sliding, Kirby cannot control his movement, and will bounce off walls. He is effectively invulnerable while sliding. To end the move, Kirby must either wait until he comes to a complete stop, or simply use the ability again while sliding.

Kirby: Star Allies

In Kirby: Star Allies, Curling returns, though this time it comes in two distinct forms. While Kirby or an allied Rocky is in stone form, a friend with the Water or Ice abilities can use an ability attack on the Stone user to transform them into the Curling stone. Using the Water ability will cause Splash Curling, which causes the stone to fly forward while spraying its surroundings with water. The latter, known as Ice Curling, functions more like its predecessor from Kirby 64, though it creates a frozen surface as it travels. Using Curling, Kirby can pound Posts sticking out of walls, but not those on the floor.
