Kirby can turn into a cute little submersible when he has to work underwater. You can guide his missiles with a rainbow rope to hit hard-to-reach targets. But that periscope is just for show—Kirby doesn't even know how to use it!

Kirby Submarine is a transformation in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. Elline grants Kirby this transformation when he approaches an easel.

Physical Appearance

When in this form, Kirby takes on the appearance of a submarine—he retains his pink body and face, but he gains a yellow rudder, a red marking on each side of him, and a pink periscope. The torpedoes that he fires are white and red.


Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Kirby can transform into Kirby Submarine in the stages Kirby Submarine's Torpedo Time and Deep-Divin' Kirby Submarine. While he is in this form, Kirby must remain submerged at almost all times. When the player taps an area on the touch screen, Kirby Submarine will move to that position. The Kirby Submarine can only fire torpedoes automatically in a straight line, but rainbow ropes can help to guide them in a different direction. If Kirby collects 100 Point Stars, he will become able to shoot a single super torpedo that is more powerful than the regular ones. These super torpedoes are also more durable, and they do not explode immediately when they hit a surface; instead, they bounce around for a while until they go off-screen or until they simply disappear. They are able to break through Metal Blocks.
