Slam Hockey is one of the ten game modes in Kirby Battle Royale. Players attack a puck for ninety seconds to slam it into other players. The player/team with the most slams wins. It is unlocked for 800 battle coins.
Slam Hockey is first played in the second Silver League Battle during Story Mode.
The giant hockey puck in the center of the arena can be attacked or thrown. When a hockey puck is thrown or hit with enough strength, it will glow blue, and contact with it will KO any rival; once the hockey puck slows down or KOs a player, it will become gray, making it safe to touch. The hockey puck can be hit or grabbed even if it's not gray, putting it in control of the last player that struck/threw it. Players that have been slammed will be carried back to the arena by Bronto Burts.
After enough time has passed, the fighting will pause and a roulette will start, with each slice having a player's icon on it. When the roulette stops, the player the roulette lands on will give three points to anyone that slams them with the hockey puck; this is usually the player in the lead. If the target player is slammed, the roulette will start again to pick a potentially new target, but the game will not pause this time.
Normal Arena is the standard arena for Slam Hockey. It is featured inside a stadium.
Obstacle Arena plays the same as Normal Arena, but periodically King Dedede's Hot Air Balloon from Kirby Mass Attack will obscure the players' view, making tracking the puck more difficult. The arena has a transparent bottom and floats through the sky, allowing the player to observe the landmarks below. These include Mt. Dedede, Mallow Castle and the field from Dyna Blade, the Rainbow Islands, and Raisin Ruins.
Stretch Arena has a similar setting to Normal Arena. This time, however, the puck is smaller in diameter, but is now significantly taller. This means players cannot jump over it, but aerial attacks become more useful for knocking it around.
