Kirby Tank 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 becomes a pink and orange tank with a red cannon for a mouth.


Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Kirby can transform into Kirby Tank in the stages Deploy the Kirby Tank! and Woodland Battle. While in this form, the player can tap on the touch screen to aim and fire Kirby Tank's mouth cannon. When he collects 100 Point Stars, he is able to transform even further--depending on how long the player holds the stylus to the touch screen, Kirby can fire three, four, or eight shots rapidly.

Related quotes

This is Kirby Tank's most powerful form. He can unleash a brutal attack, but he needs a bit of time to recover afterward. That's why he can't take on a more powerful form when he's Kirby Rocket or Kirby Submarine.
