To do this, Kirby inhales any object, ability star, or regular enemy, but then holds it above his head instead of swallowing it. In this state, Kirby cannot float but can otherwise move around, and he can do either one of two things with the overhead object - put it back into his mouth or throw it. Depending on what the object is, either holding it or throwing it may have slightly different effects, but for the vast majority of objects they either have no effect or behave the way as if they were spit out, for holding and throwing respectively.
Regular objects like Star blocks are simply thrown in a straight, horizontal line. They lose their inherent properties as well, such as Poppy Bros. Jr.'s bombs losing its explosive effect.

Bosses and mid-bosses cannot be inhaled in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, so only regular enemies are applicable. If the enemy is thrown, it will either do damage to bosses / mid-bosses, defeat a regular enemy, or if a mix combination is valid, combine with the enemy to form a combination ability star.
Bronto Burt escapes if Kirby tries to hold it, but it brings him a good distance off the ground. When thrown it flies horizontally until it dissipates.
Spark-i fires three sparks horizontally in a spread.
Bouncy falls and bounces along the ground when thrown.
Glunk rapidly fires projectiles upwards when held.
