Artwork of the Tankbot transformation.

Tankbot is a Metamortex Transformation featured in Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn.


When Kirby and Prince Fluff transform into the Tankbot, the transformation grants them the ability to fire an unlimited number of missiles and hover for a short period of time. If there are two players, the player that did not touch the collect the powerful appears in the top and controls a large fist which can protect from enemies by rotating around and bashing them. The large fist can punch or be fired as a controllable missile. Only the player who touches the transformation symbol drives the Tankbot.

Meta Knight gives Kirby and Prince Fluff the Tankbot form when they are about to fight Mega Yin-Yarn.
