Attack foes with poison spray and toxic clouds!
— Kirby Battle Royale - Kirby's 25th Anniversary Copy Ability Poll

Poison is one of three Copy Abilities introduced in Kirby: Planet Robobot. It appears to be similar to the Water Copy Ability from Kirby's Return to Dream Land.

General Information

As mentioned above, Poison is similar to the Water ability in many respects; Kirby can release spouts from his hat, slide around on a trail of poison, and throw poison blobs around. However, many of the Poison ability's attacks leave behind damaging residue (such as puddles or clouds) that can inflict continuous damage on enemies that touch them.

  • One concept drawing of Poison's ability hat depicts Kirby donning a purple wizard hat with a wooden staff.[1] This might have been a nod to the character Garstein from Alcahest, an action RPG developed by HAL Laboratory. The relation between the Poison artwork and the character is that when Garstein joins the player, he talks about a cave being filled with poisonous gas.
