— Figure description from Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Twin Drill is an Evolved Copy Ability based on Drill that appears in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. The hat for this ability resembles the standard Drill hat, but is darker in hue and features two drills instead of one. When Kirby starts digging in the ground, a mini saw follows him around as he digs, which can damage enemies he passes under. Twin Drill digs faster than the previous evolutions, so a bigger Quake Surge can be made. In addition, Kirby shoots two additional drill-like projectiles when he digs out of the ground which fire diagonally upward.

The blueprint for Twin Drill can be found in Moonlight Canyon, inside a barrel tucked in the cliffside in the first area. Twin Drill is required to play the Treasure Road stage Dig and Duck! Runaway Parade.


All attack names are taken from the Kirby and the Forgotten Land Perfect Support Guide unless otherwise stated.

While underground, an orange power saw will poke out of the ground which can damage enemies. Called モコモコいどう (Lumpy Movement) while Kirby is underground. Called 水しぶき (Water Splash) when used on the surface of water.
