Kirby is a startable playable character in the game, Ultra Smash Bros. IV. He makes his fifth appearance in the Smash Bros. series. He's confirmed at the E3 trailer and demo to be a old member at the Original 8, including Captain FalconNessJigglypuff and LuigiGenerally, Kirby is a pink puffball who lives in Dreamland, and also a hero of his homeland.

His voiceclips are the same as in SSB4 voiced once again by Makiko Omoto. 

Kirby ranks the 10th place of the 103rd (A+) behind Roy and after Samus in the tier list placing him at the top tier placement. This is a huge amelioration and also significant for Kirby since he was a low-tier character in Smash 4. Also, this is the second time that Kirby is in the highest tier placement since Smash 64.

Causing his lightness, Kirby is enable to jump 5 times in the air for a better recovery. He has also strong different special moves such as the Hammer Flip. He's the only character who can perform the Copy Ability move, so he can perform identtical neutral specials from all the characters, except those of the same race, because he transforms to Kirby himself. 

Changes from SSB4

Comparing to SSB4, Kirby heavly buffed for his aerial gameplay and his smash attacks. His aerials have become faster and balanced, and his smash moves, stronger:

  • Kirby not only can perform neutral Copy Abilities, but now he can perform all the special attacks like others (Side, Down and Up-Specials). Per example: if Kirby inhales Mario, he cannot only throw Fireballs, but also perform the Super Cape, charging the F.L.U.D.D., and perform a Super Jump. But Kirby only can perform all special moves, not from the custom ones.
  • He became faster while he runs.
  • While performing an Hammer Flip, Kirby cannot charge his hammer anymore while midair. You can only charge on the ground and also while jumping.
    • This is nerfing Kirby for awhile but also he buffed thanks to his midair floaty Hammer Flip into the air similar to Kirby's Hammer Flip in SSBB.
