Kirby holds a remote control and flies Pitch around. The player can control this attack with the +Control Pad. As a bonus, Pitch can pick up items in his 'RC' form. However, Kirby can be hurt as he is standing still controlling Pitch. Pitch can also fly through walls.
When the player mixes the Stone and Cutter abilities, Kirby gains the mix ability Stone Friends, which lets him turn into statues of any of his past animal friends, including Pitch. In this statue form, Kirby can temporarily fly in the style of Pitch. When landing, the statue will roll around.
Pitch appears as part of Cleaning's moveset, where he helps Kirby splash water in an arc. This attack is nearly identical to the move Pitch performs in Kirby's Dream Land 3 with the Clean ability, although it can now be charged up for a more powerful attack.
Pitch's name could be derived from pitch, a type of throw used in baseball, perhaps to reference the fact that Pitch is mostly throwed away or throws something (like water in Clean) when using Copy Abilities with him in Kirby's Dream Land 3.
