This article is about Kirby's different Copy abilities in Super Smash Bros. To see the other abilities from the other games, see Copy Abilities (SSBM), Copy Abilities (SSBB), and Copy Abilities (SSBWU/3DS). To see the move, see Inhale.

In every Super Smash Bros. game so far, Kirby has had the ability to copy any other characters' standard-special move with his Neutral-B attack, Inhale. If another Kirby is swallowed, only damage is dealt, but Kirby can steal a copy ability off the enemy Kirby, if they had one. When Kirby copies one of his opponents, he will also bear a resemblance of that character in the form of a hat of some kind, which usually show a prominent part of the character copied, and oftentimes mimics their voices/sounds. When performing copied attacks, Kirby will also use the same weapons and poses as their owners.

Kirby can choose to discard the ability at any time by using his taunt, though he may also lose it when taking damage. Below are Kirby's appearances when he copies the other characters in Super Smash Bros.
