|“||Watch out for the giant rock hand that tangles with you high in the Skull Tower. You'll need a lot of Kirbys to defeat it. But it will be worth your while.”|
|— Daroach • Kirby Mass Attack|
Rock hand is a giant hand made completely out of brown stone, as its name implies.
Rock hand appears exclusively in Stage 8 of Volcano Valley. At the beginning of the stage, one smashes itself through a spiked wall and pushes it toward the Kirbys. Later on, other rock hands punch the Skull Tower to collapse it. The last rock hand in the stage is the most dangerous, for if it collides with the tower, the building is immediately knocked over. Regardless of the method, any rock hand can KO all the Kirbys quickly if the player does not act promptly.
To defeat the enemy, the player must rapidly flick the Kirbys into it many times until it crumbles into pieces. For the last rock hand, however, they fire out of an autocannon and crash into it. The player must then rapidly tap the Kirby button that appears on-screen. If the heroes win the tussle, they destroy the rock hand and fly into the clouds. If they fail, they are knocking into a wasteland filled with Zombons.
- Of all the enemies in the Kirby series, rock hand and ghost are the only ones whose names are treated as common nouns.
