Doctor is a Copy Ability in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby: Planet Robobot.

Games

Kirby: Planet Robobot

Doctor focuses on using medical tools to attack, with its most basic weapon being bouncing pills. He can also attack using chemicals, medicine, bandages, and a clipboard. Its most unique attack, Science Lab, allows it to create various chemicals to damage enemies, although they are also useful for puzzles due to the elements made available. Doctor is also the base for the Doctor Healmore role in Team Kirby Clash. Doctor is obtained from the Chemitory enemy.

Techniques

Move Controls Description Element Damage
Bouncing Capsule Press and release B Kirby throws a pill in front of him that bounces three times on the ground before being destroyed. Bouncing is random, and can be normal, high, or low. None 16, 12 (repeated capsules)
Pill Bopper Press and hold B, and then release Kirby throws out five pills, three in front of him and two behind him. The pills bounce one before being destroyed. Bouncing is random, and can be normal, high, or low. None 20, 14 (repeated hits)
Science Lab ↓ + hold B extra long, and then release Kirby gathers lab tools and creates a one of four possible compounds: one that unleashes a pillar of fire, one that freezes the air above, one that sends out six sparks of electricity, and one that can be drank to heal Kirby. What Kirby gets from the Science Lab is random, but they are color coded with their effects: red is fire, blue is ice, yellow is Flash Spark, and green is Remedy; Remedy can only be made if Kirby is not at full health. If the player releases B before Kirby is finished creating the compound, a small explosion occurs, which does damage and briefly stuns Kirby. Kirby is invincible when prepping and using the compound, but he is vulnerable when holding it. Sizzle, Blizzard, or Zap 8 (set-up), 16 (explosion)
24 (1st fire hit), 8 (repeated fire hits)
36 (1st ice hit), 3 (repeated ice hits)
26 (1st Flash Spark), 19 (repeat Flash Sparks)
Research Vault A/Guard during Science Lab Kirby holds onto the compound for later use. It also causes Kirby to glow the same color as the element that he is holding. If Kirby takes damage before using the compound, Kirby will lose it. Sizzle, Blizzard, or Zap N/A
Spray Medicine ↑ + B Kirby sprays rainbow-colored liquid above him. Splash 16 per hit
Bandage Spin Dash + release B in midair Kirby spins around while surrounded by long bandages. None 16, 4 (repeated hits)

Bouncing Capsule B Y Kirby throws a pill that bounces. 90
Flash Spark Hold/release B (first phase) Hold/release Y (first phase) Kirby creates a yellow compound that shoots out balls of electricity.

Remedy Hold/release B (third phase) Hold/release Y (third phase) Kirby drinks a green potion that heals 25% of his maximum health. Kirby will hold the flask above his head until the attack button is pressed again, acting similar to Research Vault. If the player continues to charge after the third phase, it will return back to the first phase and continue cycling through the different compounds for as long as the attack button is held without being interrupted. 0
