From WiKirby, your independent source of Kirby knowledge.
Transformer is an enemy appearing only in Kirby's Dream Course. It is a small, red slot machine, sporting three strands of bright yellow hair, large eyes at the top of its head, and blue feet.
Transformers make their one and only appearance in the 2-Player Game mode of Kirby's Dream Course. If Kirby or Keeby defeats it by bumping into it, the power display turns into a slot machine. This slot machine does not appear if the player pressed A while it was hit. Transformers are unique in that they have the ability to provide every single Copy Ability in Kirby's Dream Course. This includes Burning, Freeze, Hi-Jump, Needle, Parasol, Spark, Stone, Tornado, UFO and Wheel. Kirby or Keeby will receive one of these at random depending on the timing on when the player presses the A Button on the slot machine, similar to the Mix ability. It should be noted, however, that it is possible to receive no ability at all from the Mix, or even lose the ability that Kirby or Keeby had as a result.
Transformer can only be found in 2-Player Mode courses, in the following holes:
- Kirby's Dream Course instruction booklet - "When Kirby defeats this enemy, the power display turns into a slot machine. Press the A Button and the power that appears becomes yours. The slot machine does not appear if you pressed the A button while hitting this enemy."
- To date, Transformer is the only enemy in the Kirby series that can singularly provide Mix when defeated.
