Kirby
Submitted by: DK3

Kirby is the protagonist and pink puff from the Kirby franchise. Kirby hails from the Dream Land on the far-off, distant planet of Pop Star. Kirby has been a hero of his land for over 20 years now and has occasionally ventured to other nearby planets as well. Kirby's body is very squishy and flexible, which allows him to flatten or famously inflate like a balloon, which aids him in floating in the air. Kirby is a jolly and cheerful character, and enjoys helping out friends and strangers alike. He also possesses a large appetite for cake.

Kirby's main ability lies in his Copy Ability. After inhaling an enemy, Kirby can absorb their abilities and use them to aid him in his battle against evil-doers.

Special Moves
Attack Name Damage Details
Standard Special   Copy Ability 4% - 10%   Kirby begins to inhale as his mouth grows wide open. By doing this, Kirby can suck up and store a close-by opponent in his mouth. He is then free to spit them back out by pressing the Special Move button again, resulting in a Star Spit attack, or the player can press down on the Control Stick to cause Kirby to swallow the victim and copy them. After copying a foe, Kirby will wear a hat similar to various appearance features of the victim and be able to use their Standard Special attack in place of his Copy Ability maneuver. If Kirby taunts, he can rid himself of his current Kirby hat and use his Copy Ability again. If Kirby is KO'd, he'll also lose any Kirby hat he had in that method as well.
Side Special   Hammer Swing 6% - 24%   Kirby will swing a heavy mallet in front of him. How he swings the hammer will depend on if he's on the ground or in the air. If Kirby is on the ground when he uses this attack, he'll swing it once in front of him. If he uses it in midair, he'll swing it in a complete 360 degrees as he flips forward. Kirby can now also charge this attack up before swinging the hammer, but only if he's on the ground. By charging up completely, Kirby will slam the hammer forwards and pound any opponent flat, stunning them momentarilly and damaging them for quite a bit.
Up Special   Final Cutter 5% - 12%   Kirby brings out a sharp, curved sword and leaps straight upwards into the air as he slices along the way. At the peak of his jump, he'll flip forwards once before extending the sword outward and slamming back down towards the ground. After hitting the ground and performing the attack successfully, the sword will send a wave of energy forwards a short distance, slicing through any foes in front of him.
Down Special   Stone Change 8% - 15%   Kirby will transform into a stone version of himself this time, which increases his weight immensely. If used in the air, Stone Kirby will slam down hard to the ground below and damage any opponent in his way as he falls. Stone Kirby on a slope will not slide like in previous Smash Bros. games, and this time can now move slowly left or right as well. While in Stone form, Kirby is completely immune to all incoming projectiles, but can not attack at all unless he falls on top of someone. While in Stone form, physical attacks will still damage Kirby, but only do half damage to him.
Final Smash   Crash Supernova 35% - 45%   Kirby will muster all his strength to perform this devastating attack. Shortly after activating the Final Smash, the screen will darken to about half brightness before a second Kirby appears and rockets across the screen in random directions repeatedly. After the attack is finished, all opponents on screen will take heavy damage.
