Wire is one of the six Ravel Abilities present in Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. When obtained, it gives Kirby a wire hat and sword which allows him to slice and dice his opponents.

Wire is one of the few ravel abilities that replaces Kirby's standard Yarn Whip, which means that the sword swipes are also capable of pulling away obstacles concealed by tags and destroying yarn blocks. The Wire sword gives Kirby a three-swipe sword combo when standing on the ground, and can also be used in a spinning motion when in the air or underwater. It cannot be used to directly harm Bosses however, only effective if it hits their weak points.

In addition, a different version of this hat can be obtained by scanning the Meta Knight amiibo into the game. Kirby gains the Meta Knight Hat, which resembles his mask, but is worn on top of Kirby's head. The difference is only aesthetic, however.
