I'm curious. Often, I find myself shielding an attack and not knowing what move to punish with. When I say out of shield, I mean to use after an opponent uses a move and it is shielded, opening up room for a punish. Any help on this topic would be great!

I'd say that Bair is Kirby's best aerial move Oos as it's his fastest aerial. Also all his tilts are pretty fast so use those as well. Depending on how fast your opponents move is that you shield, you may be able to do more or less but these are the fastest choices:

Bair, tilts, grab/dash grab

It's really situation dependent. And by that I mean, where is your opponent approaching you from or if they are in-front of/behind you. Up-Tilt and B-Air are Kirby's 2 best options when it comes to stopping an opponent when they are hitting your shield as while your back is turned to them. Both come out pretty fast and have decent priority. I tend to use Up-Tilt alot against Sheik and Mario because of this.

D-Tilt/Jab/Grab, all 3 are a great of the opponent is in-front of you. As you know, Jab has a great chance of tripping and this works out in our favor well because of our grab follow-ups. While Jab can be SDI'd out of, it's still good for building up percent. And grab, well that goes without saying, Lol.
