This hand's got sticky fingers, and he's been trying to nab Elline since she escaped. Kirby can't seem to defeat him, but at least Waddle Dee can knock him back a bit with a well-thrown spear!

Grab Hand is an enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse.

Physical Appearance

Grab Hand is a pale glove with a purple eye and a white iris. Purple smoke billows from his cuff.

Games

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Grab Hands first enter Kirby and the Rainbow Curse's story in the game's introduction. When Elline escapes out of the hole in Dream Land's sky, two Grab Hands chase her down in an attempt to capture her. Kirby rescues her from them before Bandana Waddle Dee fights them off with his spear. The two hands flee back into the hole, returning to Seventopia.

Grab Hands only appear as enemies in multiplayer mode. At certain points in most stages, a bouncy purple border surrounds the screen when Grab Hands enter. When this occurs, Kirby is defenseless--he cannot harm the opponents. A Grab Hand's goal is to seize Kirby and drag him off-screen; if this happens, Kirby is KO'd. Only Bandana Waddle Dee's spear attacks can damage Grab Hands. Each hand takes around 2-3 hits to defeat unless he defeats it in one hit with a super jab. Grab Hand is also able to grab and toss the Waddle Dee aside when needed. They give 15 stars when defeated.

Grab Hands play a role in Claycia's battle in the stage The Final Battle. She uses them to project Colorless Zones and sculpt Cannon Cottas and Clay Balls. When Claycia is defeated, Kirby learns that the Grab Hands actually belong to Dark Crafter. When this villain is defeated, the hands are destroyed for good.

Trivia

  • When Grab Hand attacks Kirby, a rearrangement of the Skull Gang theme from Kirby Mass Attack plays. Additionally, Grab Hand produces a slightly distorted version of Necrodeus' laugh when he snatches Kirby.
  • Grab Hand's in-game appearance differs largely from its artwork. In the game, the enemy has a smoother texture; a sleeker, flatter appearance; longer fingers; and a smaller eye showing less of its sclera.

Looks like Grab Hand is trying to get ahold of Kirby! No one wants to get dragged off to who knows where, so it's up to Waddle Dee to use his spear and save the day. Hurry up and save Kirby, Waddle Dee!
