UFOs are flying saucer shaped enemies. These enemies lurk in hidden rooms throughout the series, and can be said to be a rare enemy. They can be seen hovering above the ground, and may fly away if not consumed by Kirby. Once consumed, they give Kirby the U.F.O. Copy Ability, which allows him to shoot lasers or a beam at his foes. In most of its appearances, if UFO is dispatched or if Kirby goes far off screen, it will never reappear if scrolled back.

UFOs display a number of different behaviors. They can often be seen zipping about at very high speeds, and may crash into Kirby before he has time to react. They can also fire lasers, similar to the Laser Ball.

Game appearances

Kirby's Adventure/Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land

Adventure UFO.pngUFOs first appeared in this title. They are often found in hidden side-chambers, and once they vanish or are defeated, will not appear again unless the stage is exited and re-entered. Only on rare occasions are they found out in the open in regular stages. Unlike most enemies, UFOs have a special sound they emit when flying around.

Kirby's Dream Course

UFOs are among the enemies that Kirby can collide with on courses in this title. When he bumps into one while not in possession of another ability, he will transform into a flying saucer, allowing him to move freely about in the air, though unable to move up or down while in saucer form.

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror

As in Nightmare in Dream Land, UFOs are uncommonly found in some of the rooms around the Mirror World. They behave the same as usual.

Kirby: Squeak Squad

UFO retains its character and rarity in this title, though its value is somewhat diminished by the presence of Doc, who can also provide the U.F.O. ability.

Kirby's Epic Yarn/Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn

UFO appears in this title, though the lack of Copy Abilities makes it a neutral creature. It appears rarely in Space Land, though it can appear in large numbers during the Rocket and Star Shooter sections. If Kirby uses his Yarn Whip to roll UFO into a ball, throwing the ball will create three homing projectiles that target nearby enemies.

Kirby: Planet Robobot

UFO appears as a gift in the Copy Ability Testing Area once the game file is completed 100%. It provides the U.F.O. ability as usual. Using the Kirby series Kirby amiibo also grants the ability.

Kirby: Battle Royale

UFOs appear in the Ore Express battle mode, in the Twisty Tunnels and Logjam Pass stages. They carry ores and need to be struck to drop them.
