Archer Kirby is one of Kirby's copy abilities, introduced in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. As it's name suggests, it lets Kirby wield a bow and arrows to attack enemies from a distance. It is obtained from Spynum. Kirby wears a purple rimmed hat with a yellow feather and wields a pink bow with a star at front in this form.
The main ability of Archer Kirby is to use his bow to snipe enemies at a distance. Kirby can aim his shots in all directions. He can also charge his shots for greater distance and power. More powerful shots can go through multiple objects.
The second major ability is to hide behind various wooden cutouts of fake scenery. Usually, it is a bush or tree but, it can be references to other Kirby characters. Behind this cutout, Kirby avoids all damage and can fire behind it when stationary.
This ability was first introduced in Kirby: Triple Deluxe and has since then, appeared in the following games.
- This ability is similar to Cupid Kirby from Kirby & the Amazing Mirror except that ability had the ability to hover and fly while this one has more power and control in its arrows and the ability to avoid damage.
