Game Apperances

The U.F.O. has three attacks which are selected in relation to the charge time. An uncharged attack lashes a beam whip energy chain, similar to Beam. A short charge will initiate a small fired shot while a fully charged attack will fire a larger energy shot. The U.F.O. ability can move through water and will not convert in to a goggle wearing Kirby as do the other abilities.

Kirby: Planet Robobot

In Kirby: Planet Robobot, U.F.O. is an extremely rare ability, obtainable only by either scanning Kirby's amiibo into the game, or by completing the game 100%. Here, it has an updated moveset, and allows Kirby to drop through platforms, unlike older versions. When in a cutscene, traversing the world map or using a Warp Star, Kirby assumes his normal form, and wears a special hat that resembles the U.F.O. top.

New to Planet Robobot are the following abilities:

  • Star Guard: Creates a spark that orbits the U.F.O., like the ability scroll for the Squeak Squad version.
  • Unidentified Flight: Causes the U.F.O. to zig-zag through the air, damaging anything it touches.
  • Mystery Catch: The U.F.O. can use a tractor beam to suck up enemies from below, like an Inhale. Enemies vanish after they are sucked up.


  • When U.F.O. Kirby uses the Cell Phone in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, a small satellite dish is used instead.
  • In Kirby: Squeak Squad, it is possible for Kirby to spit out bubbles and star projectiles while using a Copy Ability. In the case of U.F.O, his upper portion inflates when he is preparing to spit, and he inverts and starts to lose altitude, unable to move until he spits out his item.
  • While U.F.O. Kirby retains his flying saucer shape in Kirby: Planet Robobot, he temporarily assumes normal form during certain interactions, such as the cutscene after defeating the Invader Armor. Here, he has a hat which resembles the top of a U.F.O., with small electric frills on the sides.
