Rocket is a Transformation that both Kirby and Prince Fluff can take on in Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. The two can transform into this form by getting the relevant Metamortex. It first appears in Stellar Way, then appears in Outer Rings.
Kirby becomes a pink rocket with red and yellow engines and a yellow star decoration. Prince Fluff becomes a blue one with orange and yellow engines and a yellow star decoration.
While in this form, Kirby and Prince Fluff perpetually travel upwards and can shoot star shots in 3 columns by pressing button 1 (Wii) or B (3DS) somewhat like the Star Shooter Metamortex transformation. Repeatedly pressing the attack button will make the projectiles fire in a spread pattern, while holding it will make the rocket fire faster in 3 columns straight ahead. The Control Pad moves the rocket anywhere on the screen.
- Rocket's description on the European website is flawed; it states that the form can shoot missiles, when in actuality, it shoots stars. However, "missile" may have been intended as a generic term for "projectile" in this case.
