An established series staple and extremely common, Parasol gives Kirby a star-tipped, red and white parasol. It is one of few abilities without an ability hat. The parasol is a cross between a spear and shield, as the star-tip passively hurts anything in front of Kirby, and makes the parasol a decent melee weapon. When the parasol Copy Scroll is obtained, it can fire surprisingly powerful stars. The parasol itself protects Kirby, and serves as a parachute to slow his descent, or a surface which Kirby can use to throw enemies away from himself.
