Key is an item in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby's Pinball Land. It is most notably used to unlock Treasure Chests and certain doorways, as well as gateways.

Games

Kirby's Pinball Land

Keys have an extremely minor role in this game. After Kirby defeats Whispy Woods, Kracko, or Poppy Bros. Sr., a key with a star-shaped handle will appear and spin around. If Kirby falls down to the Warp Star before he can grab it, he will travel to the top level of whichever Pinball Land he is in and will have to return to the key's location. He will not have to fight the boss again.

When Kirby touches the key, two more Kirbys will appear and do the Kirby Dance. He will return to the Pinball Land selection screen and be unable to return to that Pinball Land. Once the player acquires all three keys, a Warp Star will appear, and can take Kirby to King Dedede.

Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble

Though rather uncommonly seen, keys appear as items in Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble. If the player picks one up, he/she can open locked doors. Keys are sometimes found in Treasure Chests or guarded by enemies such as Blockbots.

Kirby: Squeak Squad

In Kirby: Squeak Squad, Secret Door Keys appear as collectible treasures. They are found in every level except for Gamble Galaxy, and unlock a secret stage in each level.

Secret Door Key locations

Kirby Mass Attack

In Kirby Mass Attack, keys are common items that open treasure chests. They can be held by Kirbys and open the chests. Buzzybat and Skullseer have special keys that can open mid-boss doors in Volcano Valley. Skull keys also appear, which transport the Kirbys to a dimension of Skullys and can unlock skull chests.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land

There are no treasure chests in this game, so keys (called Lock Keys) serve to open doorways only. Key Dees hold keys and attempt to run away with them. The character holding a key is limited to a single jump, making platforming trickier. If a Hunter Scarfy or a red Degout is nearby, it will transform and attack the character holding the key. Keys expire after a time limit.

Keys in Kirby's Return to Dream Land work similarly to the keys seen in Super Smash Bros. Brawl's Subspace Emissary mode.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Keys reprise their role from in Kirby's Return to Dream Land; they again serve to open locked passageways. New to this game are star doors with large locks on them—when Kirby approaches one with a key in hand, the lock will break and the hero will be able to enter the door. Several puzzles require Kirby to carry a key to a door while dodging hazards in a Tilt Gondola.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Keys appear as living creatures in this game. Each has a brown faces, gold eyes, gold ears, and a ruby. When Kirby touches one, it will follow him until he reaches a locked door, which it will immediately open. Enemies called Grinkeys transform into ordinary keys when defeated.
