I will possess. I will control. I'm a spooky soul. I'm not scary, though, right?
— Ghost's Flavour Text • Kirby: Squeak Squad


Ghost is one of Kirby's many copy abilities, and a rather special one at that. It originated in Kirby: Squeak Squad as an unlockable ability and has only appears in that game. Ghost can only be copied from the unique mini-boss, Tedhaun. Tedhauns replace one mini-boss from each level after all Ghost Medal pieces have been unlocked.

Ghost gives Kirby the power to control enemies and use their powers as his own. Ironically, while ghosts are usually portrayed as having the ability to pass through solid objects, Ghost Kirby does not have that ability; he can't even travel down ladders or pass-through floors that the regular Kirby can pass through. It also cannot attack bosses without possessing a regular enemy beforehand whose attacks aren't limited to ramming.

Kirby Super Star Ultra

Ghost Kirby isn't playable, but he serves as the ghost for the player's previous race in Gourmet Race. (Similar to the Mario Kart series) If Kirby chooses to redo the same course that time around, a ghost is created that the player can race. As most ghosts, the Ghost Kirby travels on the same path that the player traveled in the past race. Ghost Kirby looks exactly the same as he did in Squeak Squad, except he is now always surrounded by a bright bluish-white glow. He also goes through Star Blocks without breaking them.

Trivia

  • In the Kirby: Right Back at Ya! Halloween special, Kirby puts a bedsheet over him, resembling ghost Kirby, then inflates and flies around, accidentally scaring Tiff.
  • When a bubble item is sent to Ghost Kirby's mouth (eg: a Star Bubble,) he will inflate and drop on the ground and remain motionless until the item is discarded; this is also the same deal with the UFO ability.
  • When Kirby transforms to any ability, he does a waving-walking pose, when he does this in Ghost Kirby, a blue shoe is revealed.
