Conduct electricity by mixing the Needle power-up with a Spark. Electrified Kirby will zap enemies above and beside him.[1]

Lightning Rod[2] is a Power Combo from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. Kirby gets it by combining Needle with Spark. Lightning comes down and hurts or KOs enemies. This power can still be used indoors, but the lightning just comes from the platform above. The lightning rod is reminiscent of Kracko's traditional lightning attack, the main difference being Kracko lasts until he goes to the end of the screen. Kirby's rod however, appears for one second.

Spark's expanded moveset in Kirby's Return to Dream Land allows Kirby to perform a very similar move.
