Kirby wields [[Meta Knight]]'s legendary blade, and with it gains a plethora of new abilities, each of which is useful for obtaining every treasure in the game, except for those that require the [[Mini]] or [[Wheel]] ability. While it appears very similar to [[Sword]], Master is much stronger than the Sword ability and has more useful properties, more attacks, and maneuvers. So far, it has only appeared in ''Kirby & The Amazing Mirror'', where it could be obtained during the showdown with [[Dark Mind]] and in a pedestal in [[Rainbow Route]]'s Central Circle{{Conjectural}} after beating the game.

Kirbycolors This article is about the ability obtained from Meta Knight's sword. For Meta Knight's sword itself, see Galaxia.
Almighty Sword! It can be used on all puzzles!
— Master's Flavor Text • Kirby & The Amazing Mirror

Master is one of Kirby's special Copy Abilities. It is the Final Weapon of Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, yet can be used outside of the final battle after beating the last boss, which makes it one of the two final abilities that can do this, the other being the Triple Star.

General Information

KatAM The End

Master sword in the Central Circle

Kirby wields Meta Knight's legendary blade, and with it gains a plethora of new abilities, each of which is useful for obtaining every treasure in the game, except for those that require the Mini or Wheel ability. While it appears very similar to Sword, Master is much stronger than the Sword ability and has more useful properties, more attacks, and maneuvers. So far, it has only appeared in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, where it could be obtained during the showdown with Dark Mind and in a pedestal in Rainbow Route's Central Circle after beating the game.

Before Galaxia was named, players referred to the sword as the "Master" Sword, specifically in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, because Galaxia gives the Master ability to Kirby.

The ability's name likely comes from the fact that it is the game's ultimate ability and can be used to get almost every treasure.

Master, unlike other abilities, will stay on screen forever unless it falls down a pit, even when another ability is taken. It also won't disappear if it touches spikes, but it still floats up to the top if in water. The same happens with the Triple Star.

It is also one of the few abilities that may be used in the water, along with Sword, Parasol, Hammer, UFO, Spear, Bell, and Staff.
