UFO is one of Kirby's rarest copy abilities. Allowing him to pilot a flying saucer, it is a powerful and innovative ability that offers permanent levitation and (oftentimes) four different attacks. The type of attack UFO Kirby does is based on how long the player holds down B. The longer its pressed, the stronger the attack will be. Kirby is also capable of moving around while charging, too.
The ability does have quite a few downsides, however, as it is incapable of moving down through pass-through floors and ladders. Kirby is also significantly slowed down having this ability, making him a sitting duck to some of his faster foes. But perhaps its biggest weakness it its limited properties, as Kirby only has it for only a single stage (namely in Kirby's Adventure), 10 short seconds (in Kirby's Dream Course), or disappearing when entering the main hub area (in Kirby & the Amazing Mirror). This was changed in Squeak Squad, where it could be taken to any other stage, just like any other ability. However, UFO Kirby cannot go down ladders, forcing him to forfeit this power. The player can move while charging up attacks, but can't face in another direction.
Attacks and Features
UFO Kirby's basic feature. It is identical to Beam's signature attack, although Kirby can move freely through the attack.
Hold B/A (Low hold)
Kirby fires a ricocheting laser beam. It is identical to Laser's signature attack.
None (But can light cannon fuses)
Hold B/A (Medium hold)
Kirby calls upon the power of his spaceship to strengthen his laser. It slightly stronger than his first laser attack, about equal in power to an inhaled and ejected enemy.
UFO Wave Cannon
Hold B/A (Long hold)
When Kirby conjures up enough power, he unleashes an electrifying energy beam. It is the strongest of his laser attacks. It also goes through walls. In Kirby's Adventure, the blast is in the shape of a star.
Only available after Kirby acquires the UFO Copy Scroll, Kirby's spaceship is outfitted with a small ball of electricity. This ball orbits around him automatically, and causes minor damage to anything it comes in contact with.
Hold down the B Button to charge, and then let go! You can attack four different ways!
