Turn supercold to freeze foes!
— Kirby Battle Royale - Kirby's 25th Anniversary Copy Ability Poll

Freeze is one of Kirby's Copy Abilities. It first appeared in the game Kirby's Adventure. This Copy Ability appears infrequently, and is often merged with the Ice Copy Ability, mainly because of its simplistic form of attack.

General Information

Freeze is essentially a defensive version of the regular and much more common Ice ability. When used, Kirby surrounds himself with a frigid snowstorm which freezes approaching enemies. They can then be kicked toward other enemies as ice blocks. This is exactly the same as the Spark ability (and to a lesser degree, Needle), albeit for freezing enemies instead of electrocuting or poking them.

In games when the Freeze ability is obtainable, Kirby can inhale some snowy enemies like Chilly or Snoppy to get the ability. In some games when Freeze isn't an available ability, Kirby can use a similar attack to Freeze's blizzard attack as Ice Kirby.

In Kirby Air Ride, Kirby can create a small snowstorm around his machine, which can destroy enemies and damage other racers. It is unlike its forms in previous and later games, as its range is smaller and it doesn't last long.

In many games, Freeze's form of attack is used as one of Ice's attacks.

In Kirby's Dream Course, Freeze slightly reduces Kirby's friction and speed after activation. It is able to temporarily freeze bodies of water, which allows them to be crossed far more easily. They will immediately revert to liquid form when Kirby stops moving, so it is advisable to make sure in advance that a shot with Freeze will end with Kirby returning to dry land, to prevent him from falling into a water hazard.
