Be careful. You can't get hurt, but don't get mad if you break stuff. It's not perfect, OK?
— Metal's Flavor Text • Kirby: Squeak Squad

Metal is one of Kirby's Copy Abilities. It was introduced alongside several newer abilities like Bubble and Animal in Kirby: Squeak Squad.

General Information

By inhaling a Metalun or its larger counterpart, Kirby becomes hard, rough, and impervious to nearly everything. The only downside is that Kirby moves very slow and his flight is also greatly hindered. But just walking into enemies inflicts steady damage to them, without taking any himself. In terms of design and abilities, Metal is comparable to the Stone ability in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. However, in Kirby: Squeak Squad, Kirby is not invincible to bosses — they still hurt him.

Move Set

Ground Pound Down B (Midair) Kirby ground pounds. This is Metal Kirby's only means of damaging bosses. None
Ball B Requires Metal Scroll. Kirby transforms into a sphere. As a metal ball, Kirby rolls down hills and rams enemies & mid-bosses all the while. None
