General Information

Backdrop (originally spelled Back Drop) is a fun and somewhat useful Copy Ability that only appears in Kirby's Adventure and its remake, Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land. With this ability, Kirby is able to grab onto enemies by inhaling (or, in the GBA remake, a lunging dash) and perform a wide array of powerful moves on them using the directional pad and jump button.

Backdrop has a near-identical function as Suplex, though note that its similarity to Suplex was increased when Backdrop appeared in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land. Backdrop's hat (which has appeared only in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land), a red headband, is also very similar to that of the Fighter ability, the only difference being that Backdrop's headband is slightly darker in color than Fighter's.

Kirby's various directional throws in the Super Smash Bros. series are mostly based off the moves he can perform with Backdrop and Suplex.

Backdrop has only appeared in two games. Suplex, a similar ability, is considered its replacement because it comes from the same enemy and it's basically a more advanced version of the ability.

Throw/Drop Capture + Do nothing / ↑ / ↓ / ← / → with A By pressing up, down, left, or right while holding an object, Kirby will flip the enemy & mid-bosses (when defeated) in the pressed direction, though after a period of time, if the player doesn't choose which button, Kirby will automatically choose without the player's interference. Also, if the jump button is pressed while Kirby is holding an object, Kirby will jump forward and land his captured object to the ground. If he grabs an object in mid-air, Kirby will go downwards - though in the remake, Kirby throws his captured object to the ground without having to go down himself with it. None
