Move Input Description Damage

Without a bomb in hand Kirby is unable to do any of the following attacks, with one however Kirby is unable to float as well. N/A
Bomb Throw B With a bomb already in hand Kirby gives it a toss, the bomb travelling in a simple forward arc and explosing on contact, exploding on contact. Before throwing the bomb can be aimed in virtually any trajectory by holding down the input, bombs can now be thrown straight upwards as well.
Bomb Bowl B → Kirby bowls the bomb along the ground, causing it to roll in a straightforward line as opposed to an arcing trajectory. When it loses all momentum, the bomb will linger in place as a stationary bomb for a brief amount of time before exploding.
Bomb Set B ↓ Kirby drops the bomb right below him, the bomb itself acting as a stationary trap set to explode after some time or upon contact. Multiple set bombs can be out at a time.
Bomb Slide A ↓ With the bomb held out in front of him Kirby performs a slide attack, the bomb exploding on contact with an opponent. If no contact is made the bomb will be left as a set bomb.
Bomb Counter B (exactly upon being hit) When done successfully, Kirby counters the attack by detonanating the bomb, causing him to bounce backwards due to recoil and deal decent damage to what was countered. Damage that would have been taken is nullified as well.

Cupid Kirby KDL3D
Move Input Description Damage
Angel Wings A In place of floating, Kirby instead hovers in place with his angel wings, enabling him to move around slowly and fire arrows in midair. Like Kirby's float, this maneuver also slowly utilizes Kirby's air supply, so in order to reserve air it can be cancelled by inputting A again. N/A
Shot B Kirby fires a heart-tipped arrow that darts forth in a straightforward path, dealing damage on contact. Despite being weak these arrows are highly spammable and can rack up some good damage if aimed correctly.

Love Arrow Hold B extensively, release Upon achieving maximum charge, Kirby fires an arrow tipped in lovely energy. The arrow has all the qualities of Piercing Shot including the ability to aim it, but is more powerful and explodes into a burst of hearts on contact with terrain.
Sky-Shot Shower Hold B ↑, release Kirby aims straight above him, charging lovely power before releasing it in a rain of five arrows, one of which going straight up and the others darting towards the ground. Good for attacking multiple enemies below Kirby while he's suspended by flight.
Leaping Quiver B (in the air while dashing) With a running start Kirby releases a barrage of three arrows in succession to the ground before him, good for attacking at mid-range.
Retreat Barrage < B In an attempt to fall back from the enemy, Kirby flaps his wings infront of him causing him to move a good space backwards. While in motion, Kirby will also fire three arrows in succession.
Arrow Slash B → In desperation, Kirby does a lunge while swinging his bow out in front of him. This move knocks enemies away from Kirby and the lunge has brief invincibility frames, allowing Kirby to get enemies off of him and pass through other dangers as well, at the cost of leaving him open a bit afterwards.
