When the ability is used, Kirby is wrapped in a coat of flames and then charges forward at super speed, burning any enemy he goes through.

Burst into flames and blast into enemies!
— Kirby Battle Royale - Kirby's 25th Anniversary Copy Ability Poll

Burning, also called FireBall, Flame, or Burn,[1][2] is one of Kirby's Copy Abilities.

General InformationEdit

It is often merged with the Fire ability mainly because of its simplistic form of attack. In Kirby's Dream Land 2, Kirby's Dream Land 3, Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, and Kirby: Canvas Curse, the actual Fire ability is absent, although Burning appears to be its replacement. When the Burning ability is used in conjunction with an Animal Friend (with the exception of Kine) underwater, its range and power are greatly reduced.

Kirby gets this ability when he inhales an enemy that constantly radiates heat around itself, the most common being Flamer. When the ability is used, Kirby is wrapped in a coat of flames and then charges forward at super speed, burning any enemy he goes through. It is able to light fuses, and in all games (except for Kirby Super Star/Kirby Super Star Ultra), it can break through Metal Blocks.

Because of its absence as its own ability in Kirby Super Star, Burning didn't receive its hat until Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, alongside Hammer, Spark, Hi-Jump, and others. Burning Kirby wears a bejeweled tiara, and he's constantly holding flames in his hands.

In Kirby's Dream CourseEdit

While Burning is often considered a "safe" ability in platformer games due to its generous window of invincibility, it is an extremely dangerous and uncontrollable ability in Kirby's Dream Course. Activating it in this game will immediately launch Kirby forward at tremendous speed, reaching his top possible speed, which will often lead to him overshooting and ending up outside the course. It is best used in very large holes with a lot of ground to cover, or to ricochet for a long time inside of closed mazes of green bumpers without any elevation changes that might fling Kirby outside of them. If activated in the air, Kirby's altitude will not change for as long as the fire lasts.

MovesetEdit

Kirby is completely invincible while burning through anything, and can bounce off and upwards slightly upon impacting a hard surface during the attack.

In the Super Smash Bros. seriesEdit

In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Burning appears as Kirby's dash attack that turns him into a fireball as he plows though his foes. Unlike the original game incarnations, the attack cannot fly through the air as Kirby will begin to fall should he dash attack toward and over a ledge. This attack was replaced with Yo-Yo's Break Spin attack in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U; this was reverted in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, however.

TriviaEdit

  • Despite its various name changes in English, Burning was always called "Burning" in Japanese, being written in English text in its icon in Kirby's Adventure.
    • The Japanese version's ability icons are the same as the English versions, with this being the only exception. Most other HUD icons that aren't abilities have Japanese text.
  • In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the trophy for Fire Kirby erroneously states that it appeared in Kirby: Canvas Curse, when it was actually Burning that appeared.
  • Oddly, Burning cannot be used underwater in Kirby: Canvas Curse, despite that most other abilities can, and Burning has been usable underwater previously.
    • Although, it could be a nod where water puts out fire.
  • This is the first Copy Ability to be renamed in a subsequent Kirby title; the second is Smash Bros. and the third is Cleaning.
  • Despite being the more limited Copy Ability between Fire and itself, Burning appeared in more games than Fire up until its last appearance, Kirby: Canvas Curse, the ninth game it was included in; Fire's ninth game was Kirby: Triple Deluxe, released nine years later.
  • This is one of the few abilities to change the appearance of Kirby's hands. Others include Ghost, where Kirby's hands become ghost-like, UFO, where his hands disappear entirely, Animal, where his hands have claws, and ESP, where his hands hold psychic energy.
  • Despite lunging straight forward normally, Kirby twists when doing this move in the Super Smash Bros. games.
