Fireworks Cannons, also known as Crackers (according to the European website of Kirby's Return to Dream Land) are items in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. They are large cannons decorated in bright red and yellow. A blue star is on the bottom of their sides. The cannons are quite common out of all the Power-Up items. Much like with Crystals, Keys, Maxim Tomato boxes, Fireworks Bombs and Candles, players cannot float or fly while holding this Power-Up. Anyway, once this item is held, players can fire cannonballs in an arched direction, which explode into fireworks when they come in contact with anything. This allows Kirby and the gang (Meta Knight, King Dedede, and Bandana Waddle Dee) to destroy blocks blocking the way such as Metal Blocks and defeat enemies in the way, such as Nruffs. The Fireworks Cannon cannot be used forever, and the star on it will flash red when the cannon is almost out of ammunition. Once the cannon is out of ammunition, it can be thrown away, causing it to explode when it lands. The Fireworks Cannon also appears in the Item Challenge.
