Hiiiiii~ :kirby2: pals, I saw that Tetraflora posted an in-depth Kirby guide and it reminded me of what I wanted to do with PM 3.5 the most, finally find Kirby's frame data! I plan on expanding upon these values, making the formatting not terribad and updating current values if there's any mistakes, be nice :c but I just wanted to get my favorite character's basic moveset frame data out there for other Kirby fans. If there are any requests for specific data please feel free to ask, or even if you have done research on your own and want me to edit the OP, just let me know! (Before anyone asks... Yes, I do plan on adding the data for all the copied abilities.)

Terms List (Stolen from Aerodrome)

Hitbox Active: Frames during which the attack's hitboxes are active.
