Stone + Needle (also called Drill[1] or Power Drill[2]) is a Power Combo that Kirby can utilize by mixing the Stone with Needle in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. When activated, a drill grows from Kirby's arm which allows him to rocket sideways, massacring all enemies in his path. By releasing the B button, Kirby releases the drill and it continues on even through walls, plowing through enemies until it disappears.

This ability is needed to obtain the first Crystal Shard in Stage 4 of Shiver Star.

Drill Press Down + B (In midair) Kirby's feet transform into drill as it flies towards the ground. Once he hits the ground he will continue acting like he is drilling until B is released. If the player releases B in midair, the drill will fire off downward.
