The Warp Star is a common item in the Kirby series. It first appears in Mario-related games as an item in the Super Smash Bros. series, starting with Super Smash Bros. Melee. When a character grabs one, it takes its rider flying into the air, and then crashes down to the ground, making an explosion that damages other players (except the player who used the Warp Star).

Kirby and Peach on a Warp Star

A Warp Star also appears in the Subspace Emissary mode of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Kirby and Peach/Zelda use it to escape from the stadium right before it is swallowed by Subspace. However, they are chased by the Halberd, and are forced to land on it.

In the Adventure Mode for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, World of Light, Kirby uses a Warp Star to escape Galeem's attack in the introductory cutscene.

The Warp Star originated as Kirby's ride: it helped the ponderous puffball get around at high speed. Hop on the Warp Star in Super Smash Bros. Melee, and your character will rapidly launch up and off the screen. You'll return in a flash, causing an explosion as you hit the ground. Try holding a direction to alter your landing.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

In Smash Bros., they're ultrafast attack items that zoom up and down to devastate anyone they hit. You can shift your landing spot by moving the Control Stick left or right during your descent. Choose your target and hang on! Don't overshoot the mark and plummet off the stage, though.

SNES Kirby Super Star (08/1996)
A magical transportation device that Kirby has used in the past to get around. Jumping on the Warp Star will send the character high into the sky and then crashing back down to the battlefield. Anyone caught in the path or landing spot will be sent flying, and the rider can aim a bit to the left or right in the air. In the Kirby games, Warp Stars carry Kirby from one spot in a stage to another. In this game, pick it up to shoot high into the air and then slam back down to bowl over your opponents. You can control where you land by shifting left or right while in the air, but it takes some practice!

Blue indicates exclusive to the Wii U version.
