Just a li'l while longer... ...Please. Let me sleep...
— Sleep's Flavor Text • Kirby Super Star Ultra

Sleep is usually the most useless of all copy abilities. When Kirby eats a lethargic Noddy, he instantly falls asleep and can't do anything until he wakes up. This nap takes approximately 5 seconds, depending on the game. Despite appearing in Kirby Super Star, Sleep has no Helper since the player is unable to willingly drop the ability. With reasoning behind it, this is the case with the other limited-use abilities in the game.

Sleep isn't always completely useless though. In Kirby Air Ride, the victim ailed with the ability is able to "pass" to another racer by crashing into them, leaving them with this debilitating ability instead. Also if the player obtains the Sleep Copy Scroll in Kirby Squeak Squad, Kirby will slowly regain health as he sleeps.

In most games, Sleep Kirby appears at the game over screen (sometimes without the hat). If the player chooses to continue, Sleep Kirby will be hastily chased off screen and the game continues from the beginning of the level. If the player chooses to quit, however, Sleep Kirby will inhale the hand that is interfering with his sleep and will continue sleeping.

In the Anime

Sleep appears in Kirby: Right Back at Ya! in episode 16, Flower Power. King Dedede tricks Kirby into Inhaling a Noddy and Kirby falls asleep. In the anime, Sleep Kirby is rather different than in games. First, it doesn't give Kirby a hat, and second, it was supposed to make Kirby sleep for 100 years. He would only wake up if he smelled the scent of the legendary Pukey Flower.

In Super Smash Bros.

  • The pose Kirby has while sleeping is the same one he does when using this ability.
  • Jigglypuff's green costume in Brawl has Kirby's sleep hat.
  • Sleep Kirby also appears as one of the many collectible trophies in Brawl.
  • One of Kirby's idle poses in Brawl involves him falling asleep for a brief second, then waking himself up.

Trivia

  • Sleep is one of the very few copy abilities that can be obtained via swallowing in Milky Way Wishes. Although a copy pedestal for Sleep is seen in other sub-games, in Kirby Super Star and it's remake, it is not used as a Deluxe Copy Ability here.
  • Sleep Kirby is a picture drawn by Paint Roller in the Paint Panic subgame.
  • In Kirby Air Ride, Kirby's sleep hat appears purple with yellow polka dots instead of the traditional green and white polka dot hat.
  • In Kirby & the Amazing Mirror swallowing two Noddies simultaneously and letting the roulette stop on its own will grant Kirby the Smash ability.
