|— Description • Official Strategy guide|
Swiss Army Kirby is a powerful combo ability appearing in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. It is made by mixing together two Needle abilities. With this ability, Kirby's body is surrounded by a number of pointy protrusions. These are (clockwise from top): a corkscrew, a pencil, a compass, a nail, a bee stinger, a fork, a cactus, and a syringe. Upon activation, any enemy that touches Kirby is punctured by the many spiky items. Unlike most incarnations of the Needle ability though, the transformation activated by this ability is only temporary.
|Ultimate Spike||B||Kirby becomes a ball with many large, different pointy objects sticking out of him from all sides. He may also shortly cling to walls.||None|
- A pre-release screenshot of Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards reveals that Kirby's cactus previously didn't exist, and that a pointy, black tuning fork originally took its spot on Kirby's body.
