The mysterious vortex brought Gigant Edge to the new world too! They arrived before Kirby and fell in with the ranks of the Beast Pack. Despite the wild wardrobe change, they really stand out among the rest of the pack, but they'll still guard their stations with ferocity!
— Figure description from Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Wild Edge's attacks in Kirby and the Forgotten Land  
Attack Description Variants
Horizontal Slash
Wild Edge performs a big lateral swing with their sword. Two Dropped Stars are produced after the slash. This attack is not used at all when fought in the Downtown Grassland stage.
They may swing twice in a row instead of once.
Spike Shield
Wild Edge brings up their shield and raises their defenses. Attacks from the front will do nothing, but if hit from behind, they will be stunned for a moment and take 2.0× damage, leaving two Dropped Stars as well. Stunning them during Phase 1 may enable Kirby to defeat them without activating Phase 2. In Phase 2, Wild Edge may move slowly forward while using this move.
Their tougher variation holds their shield up for a lot less time.
Overhead Slash
Wild Edge performs a large vertical slash with their sword which hits the ground, creating two Dropped Stars. They may perform up to two or three of these in succession.
Wild Edge pulls out their sword and runs forward for a while. When they stop, they leave two Dropped Stars behind and stagger for a moment. The harder version not only runs faster but, after the initial charge, will turn around and try to dash into Kirby again.
Charge Edge
Wild Edge takes a few steps back, charges their sword and performs an overhead slash that hits the ground, creating an explosion and leaving four Dropped Stars behind. This attack is only used in the isolated isles of Forgo Dreams and The Ultimate Cup Z.

Across all battles, Wild Edge enters Phase 2 when their HP is below 55%. They take 0.2× damage when roaring both at the start of the battle and at the start of phase 2.
