Kirby 64
                 Ability Guide
       By: Mike Shaw (Folx Numeroso is my nickname)

I.    Version History
    Version 1.0: 7/01/00 I created this guide
    Version 1.1: 7/14/00 I added the statue's abilities and rated all of the
skills
    Version 1.2: 8/17/00 I fixed the dynamite power and added the enemy list.

II.   Basic Abilities

      Copy- Kirby's most basic attack.  He basically sucks his enemy into his
mouth (button B), as in all Kirby games.  He can do a few things while the
enemy is in his mouth.  1) Kirby can Swallow the enemy (down on D-pad) and
gain it's power (if it has any).  2)Kirby can Spit the enemy out (button B)
and hit other enemies with it.  3)An added feature (probably based on the
Suplex power from Kirby Superstar for SNES) Kirby can lift the enemy on top of
his head (L,R, and C buttons). While lifted, the enemy can be thrown upward
(L,R, and C buttons) or forward (button B).  Some enemies will do special
things while you hold them (Ex. Bumber slows your descent, like the Parasol
power in other Kirby games, and Fishbone shoots while you hold him).
    Rating: 9: great, can't fly with an enemy, though (aside from a few that
fly themselves on top of your head)

      Burn- A.k.a. Fire. Kirby basically turns into a fireball and flies
forward (button B), destroying anything in his path.  The attack lasts longer
in air than on the ground. Surprisingly, you can use it underwater!
    Rating: 4: fair, but it leaves you vulnerable after the attack

      Stone- Kirby turns into a rock (button B).  Unlike other Kirby games, he
rolls if he was moving and can even walk (left/right on d-pad) while in a
petrified state!
    Rating: 7: pretty nice, but you can't jump or go up hills and it slows you
down considerably.

      Ice- A.k.a. Freeze. Kirby Spins and blows cold air (button B), freezing
all enemies that the cold air touches. He can then knock the frozen enemy into
another enemy, destroying them both.
    Rating: 9: great, but it slows you down

      Needle- A.k.a. Spike.  Kirby basically covers himself in spikes (button
B). If Kirby is in the air while he uses this attack, he spins.
    Rating: 9: only drawback is that it slows you down

      Bomb- BOOM!  Kirby throws a bomb (button B), then it explodes and
destroys all enemies that the explosion touches.  The longer you hold B, the
farther the bomb goes.  Simple enough.
    Rating: 9: this skill is hard to master, but once you do…

      Spark- Surrounds Kirby with a barrier of electricity (button B).  Kirby
can move while using this attack, but it's really slow, and that barrier gets
smaller.
    Rating: 9 (almost 10): slows you down

      Cutter- Kirby sends a boomerang (button B) which is actually part of
himself!  Simplest explanation I've had to do yet.
    Rating: 4: you can only send out 1 cutter, it slows you down, can't fly,
can't go up ledges, and leaves you very vulnerable

III.  Combining

      There are a four ways to combine abilities.  I'll explain.

      1)Swallow two enemies with special powers.
      2)Spit one enemy with a special power into another enemy with a
special power.
      3)Throw an enemy with a power into another.
      4)Throw a power star into an enemy with a power. (push L/R/C buttons
while you have a special power or get hit enough)

VI.   Combined Powers (I made up all of these names)

      Burn + Burn = Big Burn- Same as burn, only bigger and longer lasting.
    Rating: 7: leaves you vulnerable.

      Burn + Stone = Volcano- Kirby shoots stones out of his head    (button
B). The stones go straight up unless you redirect it (d-pad)
    Rating: 5: short range + leaves you vulnerable, annoying to use sometimes
(slows you down considerably)

      Burn + Ice = Steam Spin- As the name suggests, Kirby shoots steam out of
his sides and spins as he melts a block of ice.
    Rating: 1: short range, vulnerable, low chance of hitting enemy, slows you
down, etc.

      Burn + Needle = Fire Arrows- Shoots Flaming Arrows (button B).  The
longer you hold B, the farther it shoots.
    Rating: 10: hard to master, but once you do…

      Burn + Bomb = Fireworks- Kirby explodes (B). The explosions look like
fireworks.  You can push B up to 3 times in a row to make the explosions
bigger.
    Rating: 9: use it above a cliff/ hole and you'll se the only reason that
it's not a 10.


      Burn + Spark = Friction Burn- Kirby rubs his head with paper (hold B).
Sparks fly until his head lights on fire.  Then, he runs with his head on
fire. That's it.
    Rating: 6: not very good, slows you down, but it is very efficient.

      Burn + Cutter = Flaming Sword- This one's cool! Kirby pulls out a big
flaming sword (B) and swings it (B) at enemies.  Push up and he'll hold the
sword up. Press B while the sword's up, and he'll throw it!
    Rating: 9: he can't fly with it

      Stone + Stone = Big Stone- Big version of Stone.
    Rating: 9: fast, efficient, but you can't jump or go up hills

      Stone + ice = Hockey Puck- Kirby turns into a hockey puck (?) and slides
around.
    Rating: 7: slows you down, leaves you kind of vulnerable, but it's
efficient

      Stone + Needle = Drill- Kirby hangs on as a drill drags him behind it.
Let go of B to shoot the drill.
    Rating: 10: master this and you're invincible!

      Stone + Bomb = Dynamite! - Kirby throws 3-sticks of dynamite. Probably
THE Biggest explosion you'll ever see in the game! Hold down after you throw
the bomb to put on a hard hat.
    Rating: 7: slows you down, don't use it in the air, Can damage you!

      Stone + Spark = Magnetic Boulder- Kirby plays tetherball with a
magnetized rock.
    Rating: 8: master this and you have a pretty good skill. But it's hard to
keep it moving and you can't control where it goes

      Stone + Cutter = Statue- Kirby turns into a statue. Each Statue can do
different things. The cat can do flips to jump farther. Bouncy can jump. The
owl (forgot his name) can fly. Kine just sits there. Here are the useful ones:
the small bird can fly (quickly) and roll when it touches down. Rick can climb
up walls (pressing a repeatedly while touching and facing the wall).
    Rating: 10: NICE!! The only drawback is that you have to wait for a good
statue to come up, but that's not a problem!

      Ice + Ice = Snowball- Kirby turns into a giant snowball and rolls over
enemies.
    Rating: 10: almost no drawbacks!

      Ice + Needle =Snow Flake- Kirby turns into a snowflake (hold B)that
grows really big and freezes everything it touches.
    Rating: 7: REEEEEALY SLOW!!

      Ice + Bomb = Snowman Surprise!- Kirby puts a bomb on his head, turns
into a snowman (B), and in a few seconds.. KABOOM!!!
    Rating: 4: can't set it off yourself, generally bad!

      Ice + Spark = Fridge- Kirby turns into a refrigerator and spits out food
(B). The food Heals Kirby!!! =^D
    Rating: 10: the food kills enemies, too!

      Ice + Cutter = Ice Skates- Kirby gets some ice skates and goes skating
(B). Stop (B) or change direction to attack. You can also jump to attack (WOW!
Kirby can REALLY ice skate) (Triple axle X 21)
    Rating: 9: Short range

      Needle + Needle = Swiss army Knife- Basically, a bigger needle attack.
    Rating: 9: just a tiny bit better than needle.

      Needle + Bomb = Gordo- Kirby turns into gordo (B) and can move around a
little. After a few seconds.. Bang!
    Rating: 8: REALLY SLOW!

      Needle + Spark = Lightning Rod- A spike sticks through Kirby's head and
a bolt of lightning hits.
    Rating: 7: slows you down, is kind of annoying sometimes!

      Needle + Cutter = Antlion Attack- A pair of pincers chomp anything
directly above or to the side of Kirby.
    Rating: 9: slows you down a bit, still, it's really good.

      Bomb + Bomb = Missile- Kirby shoots 1-3 heat seeking missiles.
    Rating: 10: Perfect attack!!!

      Bomb + Spark = Light bulb- Kirby turns into a light bulb and eventually
explodes.
    Rating: 7: not very good, slows you down.

      Bomb + Cutter = Ninja Star- Kirby throws a black star.  When it hits, it
explodes.
    Rating: 10: master this for a deadly skill!

      Spark + Spark = Megavolt- A big version of spark
    Rating: 10: awesome attack! Slows you down a bit, though

      Spark + Cutter = 2-Sided Light Saber- just like Darth Maul's Saber, but
it's yellow.
    Rating: 9: can't fly with it

      Cutter + Cutter = Big Cutter- Giant version of cutter.
    Rating: same as cutter
