Artwork of Sword from Kirby: Squeak Squad.

Sword Kirby is one of Kirby's Copy Ability forms, first appearing in Kirby's Adventure. By inhaling sword wielding foes, Kirby becomes a skilled swordsman capable of slaying enemies in a flurry of combos, cutting ropes and chains to reveal new paths, and condensing his energy into a razor sharp Sword Beam. The helper for Sword ability is Blade Knight.


Sword Kirby wears a long, green, elven cap. A reference to Link from The Legend of Zelda.

Sword Kirby VS Grand Wheelie

Kirby attacks by slashing the sword horizontally on the ground or performing a spinning somersault slash in the air. What this ability lacks in range it makes up for in speed. Sword is one of the few Copy Abilities that can be used underwater.

Kirby can use much more attacks then just slashing the the sword. Meta Knight offers Kirby a sword to fight him.

That green cap sure does make Kirby look heroic, doesn't it? Maybe wearing it just inspires Kirby, but while he's wearing it, he gets all kinds of neat moves, like Spin Slash, Multisword Attack, and Sword Dive. He's even able to pull off these moves in the air, on the ground, or underwater!
