Along with Baton, Water, and Top, Iron appeared in Air-Ride-in-Style - Part II of the anime, and was created by fans. There was a contest in Japan for fans to submit their own Copy Ability ideas, and this was one of the winning entries. Iron Kirby has two forms. His first has him wearing a golden bodysuit with a cobra-shaped crown and a cobra staff, giving him a rather Egyptian style. He can use the staff to deflect attacks. His main attack is transforming into his second form: a giant golden Kirby statue which rolls to crush enemies.
The sequence starts with Kirby glowing with energy, then he is covered in some iron and wields a staff, which he swings.
- The Iron Copy Ability is a combination of two winning entries: Tutan Kirby and Metal Kirby. The Tutan Kirby entry is used for Iron Kirby's primary form, with the cobra staff and Egyptian-inspired outfit. His second form is a recolored version of the Metal Kirby entry in order to be thematically cohesive with the golden color.
- The entry for Metal Kirby would eventually be made into a Copy Ability in Kirby: Squeak Squad; the Tutan Kirby entry, however, has not been revisited.
