— Throw's Flavor Text • Kirby: Squeak Squad

Throw is one of Kirby's many copy abilities. The ability debuted in Kirby's Adventure, and specializes in throws and grab attacks.

General Information

With this ability, Kirby inhales the enemy or projectile to grab it and then throws it in any direction. This will KO most enemies hit by the thrown object. The thrown enemy or projectile will always be decimated after the attack. Throws cannot be performed on any enemies that Kirby can't inhale, like bosses and mid-bosses (although in some games, Kirby can Throw the defeated mid-boss.) If Kirby tries to inhale one of the major members of the Squeak Squad, however, it will stun them and make them drop whatever treasure chest they happen to be holding (as with his regular inhale.)

While Kirby is aiming his attack, all normal enemies that touch him will be KO'd and all mid-bosses or bosses nearby take huge amounts of damage per second until the object is thrown. This strategy, while unreliable, can be abused to defeat the strongest of bosses within an extremely short time frame. The same happens while Backdrop Kirby is holding an object or enemy. Throw can also take on an element with a Copy Scroll if the enemy gives an ability that is related to the fire, ice, or electric elements. This will burn, freeze, or electrocute objects and enemies respectively.

Throw's headband is similar to that of Suplex in that it is blue (though the Throw headband is in a lighter shade and Suplex Kirby is, on an unrelated note, darker).

Throw was basically merged with Suplex in Kirby Super Star, since the latter ability utilizes throws that are not unlike this ability (except Kirby needs to be close to an enemy to perform the throws.)

Move Set

Move Controls Description Element
Inhale B Kirby sucks up an enemy, block, star, or defeated mid-boss. Kirby is invincible until he throws the projectile, and any enemies who come into contact with Kirby during this time will take large amounts of damage. The throw can be released with B and aimed by pressing ↑ or ↓. With a Copy Scroll, the radius of damage expands, making it easier to hit enemies, and will sometimes gain elemental attributes.

Throw was featured in the anime once, and was the last regular ability to appear in the series. Throw's identity isn't clear to any of the characters at first (not even Meta Knight) until he starts to throw his opponent around. Like in the game version, Kirby first uses his inhale to grab them. Throw Kirby's most powerful move is the Tornado Throw, which throws the enemy clear out of the atmosphere. Cowardly Creature

In the transformation sequence, the Throw headband appears. It ties Kirby up a few times, but he gets himself out and puts the headband on his head.
