Water is a Copy Ability which debuted in Kirby's Return to Dream Land that can be obtained by swallowing water-related enemies. Water Kirby can surf on a form of water he creates, thus being able to easily traverse through lava. He can also neutralize lava blocks (though not lava itself) using the ability, making it a requirement to access some areas and Energy Spheres. Kirby can also spit water downwards and hover, destroying enemies along the way, as well as shoot water upwards. In addition, Water Kirby has a more powerful underwater attack, blowing out three water pulses rather than one.

Game Appearances

Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Water debuted as an ability in this title. Kirby can get this ability chiefly by swallowing Water Galbo, Pluid or Water Galboros, though a few other sources exist as well. The main strength of Water is allowing Kirby to surf quickly over his foes, traverse fiery areas more safely, and gain an enhanced Water Gun underwater.

One of the Challenge Stages revolves around the Water Ability.

Skill Button Execution Description
Wave Attack
1
Kirby spits a blob of water that travels along the ground and damages the first object it hits.
Surf
Dash
While dashing, Water Kirby has bad acceleration, but a slightly higher top speed and the ability to dash over water and across lava. Striking an enemy deals minor damage and causes Kirby to rebound backwards.
Wave Surf
Dash + 1
Creates a large wave, giving Kirby a boost of speed and plowing over anything in the way. Like Surf, travels over water and lava.
Geyser
↑ + 1
Kirby fires a blast of water straight up. Good vertical range (can hit any flying boss in their neutral position) but no horizontal range whatsoever.
Fountain Hover
↓ + 1 in midair
Kirby blows a thin jet of water downwards, lifting himself into the air a constant distance off the ground. The move continues while the button is held. Kirby can move sideways during the move and also adjust his elevation by holding Up or Down.
Water Crown
↓ + 1
A small blast of water at Kirby's feet.
Rainbow Rain
Hold ↓ then ↑ + 1
Kirby spreads his arms and produces a round blast of water that forms a rainbow above him. The move hits twice - once for the water blast and again for the rainbow itself.
Enhanced Water Gun
1 underwater
Kirby fires three water pulses with about double the range of his regular Water Gun.

Kirby Star Allies

After being absent from both Kirby: Triple Deluxe and Kirby: Planet Robobot, Water returns in this title. The main enemy who provides this ability is Driblee, who also represents the Friend for that ability. It can be used in a number of Friend Abilities including Splash Curling and Icicle Lance. It also provides the Splash element to many other abilities.

Main article: Water (anime)

Water actually first appeared as a Copy Ability in the anime series. It bore a somewhat different design to its later appearance in the games, but still had the essential function of Kirby using water to attack, including shooting a geyser from the top of his head.
