Light up dark places!
— Kirby Battle Royale - Kirby's 25th Anniversary Copy Ability Poll

Light is a Copy Ability in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby's Adventure.


Kirby's Adventure and Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land

Light illuminates dark rooms. It doesn't damage or affect any enemies, and can only be used once. There are only two dark rooms in the entire game, to which this ability has an actual effect; using Light in the second of these dark rooms, located in Stage 6 of Grape Garden, reveals an otherwise hidden door if the player backtracks. Light can be obtained or used in lit areas, but it doesn't do anything besides expend the ability. Light is obtained from the Cool Spook enemy.

Light hasn't appeared in any other games, likely due to its function being replicated by other means, such as Spark Kine, Bomb + Spark, Candles, and Fire and Spark's abilities to illuminate areas around them.


Move Controls Description
Light B Kirby tosses a ball of light that expands, illuminating dark rooms. This move does not damage enemies.

  • The only time Kirby can get Light not in a dark room is in the Stage 1 of Yogurt Yard. However, since there are no dark rooms in the stage, the ability is completely useless.
  • Light is one of the few non-Final Abilities that does not grant Kirby a hat (although the NiDL icon depicts him wearing sunglasses), instead his body flickers with light until the ability is used.
