I kid you not, I have been attempting to put this specific scene of Kirby getting an ability into the comic since freaking To The Tower.
Other places I desired to finally put it in but either didn't have the time or cut the segment short were Jetting Across The Ice, Tree To Tree, and Master Of Puppets.
Luckily, neither of the crossovers went against this new information that Kirby can still use any ability he so desires as long as he inhales an enemy who gives that ability.

Heh. I wouldn't have even suspected that Kirby can do that in this comic.

I have been thinking about that for a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time.
Come to think of it, this is the first time ANYONE has done this. Or even inhaled, for that matter.

How do you think some of the other kirbys got their abilities?
@Sapar: in Such An Odd Eight Clare inhaled Matt then spat him out again

So Ulti, did you draw your new avatar yourself? I like it! In regards to the comic, for some reason I always thought Kirby could copy abilities. I'm not sure where I got that idea, but hey.Super Crash Kirby,

...How did Kirby even go so long without getting an ability from an enemy that a squadmate wasn't aware of his power to do so?Magic Mike (Guest),

...Actually, before he got his sword ability, Kirby was seen in the arena, with the fire ability, although, some may have mistaken him for Kaxo...Ultimate Yoshi,

Things that need to be said.
I'm going to give my opinions of this comic. This is not a bash, hate, or any sort of thing. I am not basing this review on anything but what is there in the comic.
First off, the panels. They are bland. Bland as bland can be. No resizing, no dynamic panels, no change of shape, nothing. The text boxes and bubbles are also uninteresting.. They aren't special or different in any way, they are just dull. They are the same boring shape in every comic, with the same tail, or hook, same text (which isn't even a good text to start off with), same text size, and type. So yeah, that can be improved. Next, is the facial expressions. Their mouths don't move when they talk (and I know that can be seen as a annoyance more than a bad thing, but if you really think about it, you'll understand my point.) Also, with the ways the comics are structured, it's boring. The same box of panels, with no dynamic or shape differences, it's dull. Off of the comic type and bubbles, on to characters. These characters are just BORING. They are based off of one thing (ex; a emotion, feeling, etc) and have nothing that I can really say with all honesty to make me remember them. They are all one dimensional, and that's bad. Sure they change sometimes, but then they just go back to being what they always are, and that is not what character development is. The plot is okay, nothing really much to say here, it's similar to a lot of Kirby comics, which I have my opinions on, and won't bother to say them here, because it'll just be; good guys, bad guys, doom, anti-heroes, etc, etc, which really isn't all that original, since I've seen it a thousand times over, but yeah. Now, onto the dialogues. The dialogue in this comic is not really that humorous, or exciting when it comes to that point. It isn't suspenseful, or interesting. Sure there may be a few lines that are interesting, but really, to be honest, I haven't found any. I will now proceed with my personal comment to Ultimate Yoshi.
@Ultimate Yoshi: If you bothered to read any of this, then I commend you, this was really wall of text-ish. But, these are my solid opinions of this comic, and I really have to say, that It needs work. If you would resize more often, practiced on your effects, added a few mouths or something to show that they were talking, then yes. I would like this comic, but at this point, it's too bland. It's hard for me to read this, without any of, in my opinion, the necessary things in sprite comics. Do not think that this is a hate comment, or a bashing, this is merely constructive criticism and ways for you to improve and hook me, and many other readers, in. If you would look into what I say, you might earn more popularity. That is all from me. Tally ho.

I must say that it's a rare thing to find someone so logical and methodic about something they dislike on the internet. For that, I commend you. However, many of the reasons you listed for disliking the comic are the very reason I like it so much. For example: a resized panel tends to struggle with pixelation (unless the comic is hand drawn, but that's not the case here), which can make the pages difficult to comprehend well. The plain-jane, colored text bubbles leave the pages uncluttered and the dialogue organized. Oftentimes decorated text bubbles become difficult to read or force the dialogue to be at least a bit disorderly. When mouth movements are employed in sprite comics, the effect tends to be very limited and in my opinion, the mouth is usually better off left in a closed position than forced into a shape that looks unnatural or unbecoming of a character. Kirbies especially have a really sensitive mouth design. Additionally, the fact that each character is based on his (or her) own respective personality trait with the exception of Caiya is actually a draw to me. It keeps the characterization of each member of the Squad nice and solid, and it actually may help to serve as a self-protection barrier for Ulti, so as to prevent him from making someone act extremely out of character without reason. While I'm at it, I'll mention that Ulti started this comic when he was about twelve, and has diligently worked to not break the canon. To improve a comic so much without suddenly changing everything is a challenge in and of itself. When all is said and done, it looks like the comic you're looking for is rich in story with vivid character design and spectacular, original environments, whereas Kirby Adventure Squad is designed more or less one joke per page, sung loosely to the tune of plot; a method which is suiting to a video game-oriented comic without beating (much) of the actual game series' canon into a pulp. I hope I didn't come off as rude or as trying to prove all your points wrong, because that wasn't the intent at all and, admittedly, some of the recent chapters could have been handled better. I'm not sure how I would have handled it myself because for the most part each of said chapters was based around a cameo of another character with a pre-tailored story. When one tries to fit two stories together, it doesn't always look very graceful, beautiful, or exciting, but at least he gave it his all. This web comic, working alongside what I personally consider its sister comics (20 Times Kirby and Kirby's Dream Adventure), is among the best Kirby comics on SmackJeeves to date even if sometimes the characters get a little far out there (Xyxxa, anyone?). Once again, keep up that civil attitude and you'll go far, at least in the internet world. This is Centropyge, signing out.

@AbnormallyNormal: you should at least look at the segment Escape!Luigi_96,

@AbnormallyNormal: Boring text bubbles? That's a new one. And one I strongly disagree with. Look at the professional comic strips in newspapers. Do you see ANY of them that have different speech bubbles?
While I personally do prefer comics like the ones you're describing, this comic just wouldn't be Kirby Adventure if it had all the bells and whistles. Furthermore, that isn't Ulti's style. His style is to keep it simple, and it works very well for him IMO.
