Touch Dash is Kirby's main attack in Kirby: Canvas Curse and Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, and is activated by touching him with the stylus. When activated, Kirby can dash into the enemy in question and defeat them, though an opening must be found in many cases first. If an enemy defeated in this fashion grants a Copy Ability, Kirby will obtain that ability after defeating the enemy in this manner. However, it will not work against indestructible enemies and enemies which can harm Kirby if struck like Gordos.
In Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Kirby can perform a stronger attack called a Star Dash after collecting enough Point Stars or using the Kirby amiibo.
