A Tank Capsule is a cylindrical blue canister with a gold lid on each end. It contains a rotating white cloud.
Tank Capsules appear exclusively in Stage 2 of Volcano Valley. They are used to recover the tank's health when the vehicle takes damage. Each capsule replenishes one out of four vitality points. These items are spread sparingly throughout the stage, typically atop Star Blocks not directly in the player's path.
Unlike fruit, which are collected the moment they are touched, Tank Capsules must be acquired by a flying Kirby and carried back to the tank to take effect; Kirbys do this automatically when they return from being fired. As a result, it is possible for the tank to be destroyed if a Kirby has grabbed a capsule but not brought it back. Alternatively, the tank can obtain the item by rolling over it, assuming the capsule is on the ground.
- The tank is the only vehicle in Kirby Mass Attack to have its own specific recovery items.
