|“||Kirby becomes invincible! (...for a little while.)”|
|— Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards instruction manual|
Invincibility Candy (also sometimes called an Invincibility Lollipop) is a recurring item in the Kirby series. It makes Kirby invincible for a short time, and almost any enemy he touches will be instantly defeated or at least damaged. However, it will not save Kirby from falls or certain instant-killing hazards. It is white and has a red spiral in the middle. They are usually found just before an area with many enemies or hazards or in one of the first levels in several games, and may also be obtained through several item roulettes, such as Magic Kirby's roulette move.
This is the first game in which this item appears in, and appears in many other games.
In Kirby Super Star and its remake, Kirby can share the invincibility with his helper (and vice-versa) in the same way they can share health recovery. In Milky Way Wishes, an Invincibility Candy must be used on the planet Hotbeat in order to travel through a pond of lava and claim the Fire Copy Essence Deluxe (however, Kirby may take damage on purpose and attempt quickly travelling through it although the player has often no choice but to get hit twice).
In Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, the Invincibility Candy is slightly different than it is in other Kirby games. For one, during its effects, Kirby does not flash rapidly, but instead has a coating of stars floating around him. This variation is able to destroy Star Blocks simply by touching them, while in other Kirby games nothing would happen to them. The invincibility theme that plays is also different from the regular invincibility theme that usually plays in every other Kirby game.
|Main article: Jumbo Candy|
In Kirby Mass Attack, there is a new version of the Invincibility Candy called Jumbo Candy. When grabbed, this makes the Kirbys invincible and also makes them grow larger. While under the effects of the Jumbo Candy, the Kirbys can automatically break Star Blocks without having to be flicked at them, as well as metal blocks and enemies, some of which cannot be defeated normally. The normal Invincibility Candy also appears after failing an uncompleted stage a certain amount of times.
In Kirby's Return to Dream Land, the Invincibility Candy not only gives Kirby invincibility, it also increases his speed.

|Theme - Invincibility Candy|
Super Smash Bros. Brawl has a sticker of the lollipop with its design from Kirby: Squeak Squad, although for unknown reasons it's simply titled Candy. Also, for some reason, only R.O.B. can equip this sticker, despite the fact that it and R.O.B. have no relation whatsoever.
