Whip is a Copy Ability that debuted in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, obtained by swallowing whip-related enemies. Whip Kirby looks like a cowboy, and attacks by lashing out his whip in several ways. The ability can be used to obtain items across solid walls, as Kirby's whip can go through them. This allows him to reach otherwise unreachable switches and stars.

Game Appearances

Kirby's Return to Dream Land

The Whip ability debuted in this title, first appearing prominently in the Raisin Ruins stage. It allowed Kirby to attack at a distance, and grab both items and enemies from a distance, even through walls and other obstacles. A Challenge Stage is devoted to the Whip ability, which can be accessed once enough Energy Spheres are collected.

Kirby's Dream Collection

Whip appears again in Kirby's Dream Collection as one of the available abilities in the New Challenge Stages Sub-Game. One of the stages is devoted specifically to the Whip ability, and Kirby can use it to race Magolor if he so wishes.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Whip reappears as an ability in this title. It also makes an appearance as one of the abilities in Kirby Fighters (and subsequently in Kirby Fighters Deluxe).

Kirby: Planet Robobot

Whip appears in this title, along with a new enemy who provides it, an egg-shaped bandit named Wester, who can use the Whip Tornado to travel between planes.

Kirby: Battle Royale

Whip is one of the abilities usable in this action-multiplayer title. Here, Whip Kirby has the ability to catch other Kirbys with his whip, and toss them about.

Kirby: Star Allies

Whip is set to return in this title, along with Wester, who can also serve as a Helper. Additionally, Whip will be compatible with certain copy combinations, like Spark.
