Returning Copy Abilities
DLC Copy Abilities
- This game brings back almost every Copy Ability seen in past Kirby installments
- The abilities not shown in this game are Balloon, Ball (maybe because of the fact that Spring has a similar moveset), Backdrop (Suplex is near-identical), Copy, Smash and Mini. Plasma can be considered in since its abilities are attached to Spark's moveset and Spark's design is actually Plasma's, but it is still being Spark.
