Kirby and the Forgotten Land give players the ability to upgrade their Copy Abilities – here are all the upgraded forms!
One of the reasons that Kirby is so beloved after all these years is the character’s ability to adapt on the fly. Not only does the pink blob have 12 unique Copy Abilities to choose from in this game, but you can also upgrade each one!
Doing so will let Kirby take the ability into the next mission, and all instances of that ability will also be upgraded when vacuumed up.
All Copy Ability Upgrades in Kirby and the Forgotten Land
With the Noble Ranger upgrade, Kirby is able to dual-wield pop guns, or charge them up to unleash a flurry of stars.
With the Ranger’s final upgrade, Kirby gets a trusty laser gun. Fully charge the beam and an enemy will get launched into a massive black hole.
Despite swapping out the wooden hammer for a toy, this upgrade lets Kirby use a rapid hammer attack with a large AOE. Alternatively, charge it up for a flaming swipe!
With a hefty hammer made of stone, Kirby will dish out massively powerful strikes at a slower pace. Each slam will crack the ground itself.
Wielding the two powerful hammers of King Dedede himself gives Kirby a tornado spin attack, and a fiery projectile when slamming.
Not only does this Crash Copy Ability upgrade create a massive blast, but it also slows down time, allowing Kirby to freely act while the explosion goes off.
Powers up your Fire ability to a volcanic level! Spew flaming rocks that create flames for some time, damaging everything in the area.
Attain the power of a dragon, allowing you to not only use flame breath but also soar through the air in a ball of fire!
Although Chakram Cutter is still relatively low-power, it allows Kirby to dual-wield the Cutter ability for extra speed.
The Buzz-Saw Cutter allows the ability some extra power and flying distance. In addition, all blades will now ricochet off walls!
With the Gigant Sword, Kirby can defend from incoming damage as well hit with a far mightier strike.
Meta Knight Sword
Become Meta Knight, Kirby’s part-time villain and occasional ally! Gain many of Meta Knight’s abilities, including his spin, slide, and (at full health) even sling Cresent Shots.
Morpho Knight Sword
Potentially Kirby’s most overpowered ability, this upgrade is capable of unleashing massive fiery tornadoes or hurling deadly projectiles at enemies. Charge up the sword to make it gigantic, or hold block to unleash flaming spirits to protect you from harm.
Place a series of bombs before chaining the explosion together for a massive blast!
This time your bombs will home in on enemies, or patrol the area until they spot one. The bombs will also chain to each other for additional damage.
With this tornado upgrade, Kirby becomes a flurry of feathers rather than wind for a more impactful storm.
In the final upgrade for Tornado, become a raging storm, complete with lightning damage to hook in and destroy any enemies.
This upgrade for the Drill adds a giant pencil and sharpener to your helmet. When you pop out of the ground, you’ll now be launching pencil rockets.
Twice the drills, twice the power! Now you’ve got increased speed and damage, as well as the ability to damage enemies above ground while you’re still beneath it!
With Deep Sleep, Kirby won’t fall asleep until you instruct him to. Once he does, not only will Kirby heal up but he’ll also get a buff!
With all sorts of spikes surrounding Kirby, you’ll be rolling for some additional damage, but with the added bonus of shooting projectiles after you finish.
The most powerful Needle Copy Ability, Crystal Needle will let you roll longer, harder, and leave spikes in your wake.
Besides giving Kirby a cute walrus hat, Frosty Ice will create a line of snow-walruses while using your powerful frost breath. Breathe on them to send them flying!
Blizzard Ice turns Kirby into a frigid force of nature, launching icicles to freeze foes solid. For its defense, it leaves behind a trail of ice while covering itself in spikes.
