Master Hand is a major boss character in Super Smash Bros. Series, appearing in all three titles as some kind of impediment (most commonly as a final boss). Although he is generally exclusive to the Smash Bros. series, Master Hand managed to make a surprise appearance as a mini-boss in Kirby & the Amazing Mirror, granting the rare Smash Copy Ability. Also, Master Hand and his counterpart, Crazy Hand, appear much later as the bosses of the penultimate level of the game.
Master Hand and Crazy Hand guard the Mirror Shard of Candy Constellation. Defeating them after the other shards have been gotten allows Kirby to enter the true final level; the Dimension Mirror.
The moves that Master Hand uses are slightly different than the ones used in the Smash Bros. series, as are the ones Crazy Hand uses. In addition, the enemy Uja in Kirby Squeak Squad can take the form of a glove, which resembles both Master Hand and Crazy Hand.
Kirby and the Amazing Mirror Edit
In Kirby & the Amazing Mirror, Master Hand is, together with Crazy Hand, the main boss of level 9, Candy Constellation. In addition, Master Hand appears as a recurring mini-boss throughout the game that gives the Smash ability to Kirby when eaten. Some of Master Hand's attacks in this game are taken directly from his attacks in the Super Smash Bros. series. Beating the duo gives Kirby the eighth and final Mirror Shard.
As a miniboss, Master Hand has a total of four attacks, each of which are vaguely based of off his moves from the Smash Bros. series. These attacks are pounding the ground with his fist, shooting out flaming bullets, punching Kirby, and grabbing him. As bosses, Master Hand and Crazy Hand retain some of their tag-team based moves seen in Super Smash Bros. Melee such as clapping and fist-pounding. Not counting their combination attacks, Crazy Hand emplores the same exact moves and tactics that the regular Master Hand uses.
Master Hand's stars and projectiles can be eaten to get different abilities. When Master Hand pounds the ground, stars are produced that grant Kirby the Stone ability. The bullet-like fireballs that Master Hand shoots give Kirby the Burning ability.
Master Hand is a levitating, animated white glove. He is never seen on the ground except for when performing an attack. He can perform many hand-based attacks, such as punches, slaps, grabs, and sweeps. He is portrayed as a right hand, who many seem to consider the manifestation of creative spirit. Master Hand even uses long ranged attacks like shooting bullets and laser beams. He can also make combined attacks with his left-handed counterpart, Crazy Hand. Compared to Crazy hand, Master Hand is the more submissive of the two.
