Vitality is an item that can be acquired in some Kirby games which permanently increases Kirby's maximum stamina when collected. It is typically hidden in a Treasure Chest in a hard-to-reach place, and may come in pieces, requiring Kirby to reassemble them before gaining the health boost.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror[edit]

Kirby finds a Vitality in Carrot Castle.

KaTAM Vitality.png Vitalities first appeared in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror. There are four of them in total, and finding each one increases Kirby's health by one bar until it reaches a maximum of 10. Finding all these hearts is a requirement for 100% completion.

Vitalities can be found in the following rooms:

Kirby: Canvas Curse[edit]

Main article: Medal Swap

Instead of being found in chests in the main levels of Kirby: Canvas Curse, the player can purchase Life Boosts from the Medal Swap. Each of these costs a different number of Medals to unlock, and there are three in total which can be purchased. These boosts only affect Kirby, and do not increase the maximum health of the other characters.

In addition Paint Roller can paint a Vitality during the Paint Panic Boss Game.

Kirby: Squeak Squad[edit]

Heart Half.png In Kirby: Squeak Squad, Vitalities return, and there are once again four to collect. This time, however, they are split into eight halves which must be found separately in large treasure chests in various stages. Whenever Kirby finds two halves of a Vitality (no specific pieces are needed), he can put them together to increase his maximum health.

Vitality pieces can be found in the following stages:


Kirby & The Amazing Mirror[edit]

  • Instruction manual bio (page 28): "Increases the number of available life unit bars in Kirby's life meter."

Kirby: Squeak Squad[edit]

  • Instruction manual bio (page 24): "Collect two of these to increase the maximum capacity of the life gauge by one."
