Kirby's pink and at home in the rink, bodychecking enemies on his skates. Hit B to start or stop and A to bust a lutz.”
— Description • Nintendo Power (Volume #134)
Ice Skating is a combo ability appearing in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. Kirby obtains this ability by mixing together the Ice and Cutter abilities. With this ability, Kirby dons a pair of ice skates and dashes through enemies. With skates on, Kirby moves very fast. When he jumps, he spins, creating a small, icy tornado that surrounds him and can destroy nearby enemies. When the player moves the Control Stick in the opposite direction, or if Kirby runs into a wall, Kirby will brake and stop.
Kirby starts skating. While Kirby is skating, he cannot float.
Kirby gracefully jumps and lifts his skates up off the ground doing a midair pirouette. While spinning, a frosty cyclone gently spins around him. Enemies not skewered by the skates are frozen by the icy wind caused by the spinning.

Kirby comes to an abrupt stop, skidding ice in front of him, and going back to walking on foot.
