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.
