Sizzle (previously called Fire) is an element in the Kirby series.
Sizzle is an element corresponding to fire and heat based abilities. Copy Abilities such as Fire and Burning excel at using this element, but it can also be found in other abilities and Dream Friends. Sizzle is used for lighting Cannon fuses and candles and melting Ice Blocks and is very effective against ice-based enemies. Mr. Frosty is a notable example of an enemy being weak to this element.

Fire, Burning, Crash, and UFO all carry the Fire element. The fire element's main property in these games is its ability to light cannon fuses. Hot Head and Flamer can use the fire element against the player, giving the player more knockback than normal. In Meta Knightmare mode, all of Meta Knight's sword attacks carry the fire element and can be used to light cannon fuses.
Kirby: Squeak Squad makes a more prominent focus on the Fire element as compared to previous games. The Fire element can burn grass and bushes, light fuses and candles, as well as melt snowy or icy terrain. It can also vaporize cloud and snow blocks. Copy Abilities with these elements, Fire and Bomb, can be obtained by mixing Ability bubbles until red bubbles appear; Laser, UFO, and Hammer also have moves with the fire element.
The Wheel and Tornado Ability Scrolls allow Kirby's wheel and tornado forms to pick up the fire element when crossing lava or flames. The Sword Scroll allows the player to mix Sword with Fire to obtain the Fire Sword, which simply acts as the Sword Copy Ability, but all of the moves do fire damage. The Bomb Scroll does not allow it to mix with Fire, as Bombs have the fire element already.
Kirby Star Allies brings a greater focus on using abilities in tangent with one another in order to create Friend Abilities. The Sizzle element is found in Fire, Fighter's Giga Force Blast, Rick's Fire Rick, Gooey's Burning Gooey, Daroach's Daroach Fire Bomb, and all of Flamberge's attacks. Sizzle can light fuses, melt Ice Blocks, and burn grass or leaves. Sizzle can be used in conjunction with the following Copy Abilities and Dream Friends to perform these Friend Abilities:
- Bandana Waddle Dee: Sizzle Spear
- Bomb: Sizzle Bomb
- Cutter: Sizzle Cutter
- Hammer/King Dedede: Sizzle Hammer
- Marx: Sizzle Marx
- Ninja: Sizzle Ninja
- Staff: Sizzle Staff
- Susie: Sizzle Susie
- Sword/Meta Knight/Dark Meta Knight: Sizzle Sword
- Whip: Sizzle Whip
- Yo-Yo: Sizzle Yo-Yo
These Friend Abilities serve the same purpose as the Sword and Bomb Ability Scrolls, but have additional modifications to make them more unique, such as causing explosions and leaving trails of fire. Like other elements, it increases the strength of all attacks by 25%.
