* AdaptationExpansion: And HOW! Many midboss characters and even normal enemies from the games are fleshed out and given backstories.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: King Dedede of the games is usually an Anti-Villain, committing petty acts of villainy at worst and often teaming up with Kirby. Here, Dedede is a more actively antagonistic and callous tyrant (if still ineffectual) and his redeeming moments are more few and in between. Meanwhile, Meta Knight, more a HeroAntagonist in the games, is Kirby's ally and mentor from the beginning of the anime.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Monsters are always evil, with a few exceptions. The Robotic Dog, until its programming kicked in, Lola who was deemed useless and split in two, Hardy, whose only job was to do dental work, and [[spoiler: the unknown monster which may be Kirby]].
* AlwaysClose: Averted. In the final episode, [[spoiler: the ''Halberd'' attempts to retreat from Nightmare's fortress after realizing he is NighInvulnerable; the gate starts to close and they miss it by half a second.]]
** Though the same episode plays it straight when [[spoiler: the gang's time bomb goes off and destroys Nightmare's base the ''second'' after they all transport out]].

Added DiffLines:

* MothMenace: Mothgaba is a gigantic moth which attacks Cappy Town with a strange pollen which causes strong hay fever to everybody in town. It turns out it came from the Southern Islands and was enraged after the Island Sisters, which sang its favourite song to it while it was a caterpillar, were abducted, and their rescue calmed it down. They then all returned to the Southern Islands together.

* BlindIdiotTranslation: Non-4kids example: The subbing team got increasingly stressed and their translation suffered in later episodes. The most obvious example is how they butchered the names of Sir Arthur's companions into nonsensical gibberish. You'd think they'd have the common sense to realize a group of knights led by someone named ''Arthur'' would all be named after Knights of the Round. Arthur himself was only spared because his name was the only one said aloud in the dub.

*** Zig-zagged. This is actually an example of FunWithAcronyms, since the English dub actually changed Nightmare's name to [[XtremeKoolLetterz eNeMeE]] (capitalization theirs). The fact that they did this despite his name being perfectly translatable to English (after all, his name was kept as "Nightmare" in the games) might still make it an example of this trope, though.

** Escargoon had a split second cameo in one of ''VideoGame/KirbyMassAttack'''s mini games, but aside from that, he has yet to make a true appearance in the games.
*** The NME salesman appears in one of the game over screens of another sub-game in said title.

* DressingAsTheEnemy: In episode 66, when the Pengi come to Pupupuland/Cappy Town, Kirby and co. make Pengi costumes in order to escape the jail cell they're held captive in.
** Amazingly enough, not only did Fumu/Tiff, Bun/Tuff, and Kirby did this (with badly made costumes), somehow, ''Meta Knight'' made a much better costume, and even had the same idea, but took it a level above; ''he posed as a guard for them.''

Kirby and his friends spend the episodes foiling Dedede's plans, battling the monsters he orders, undoing whatever damage he caused to Pupu Village/Cappy Town, and the series follows their day-to-day antics whenever they're not doing any of the above. The series is episodic in nature, although it has several sequential episodes.

** Escargon to Escargoon. It's debatable if this even counts, since the spelling (at least) is so similar one could be taken as a typo of the other..

* AmbiguouslyGay: Escargon/Escargoon. Nothing official has been said, but he has plenty of HoYay with Dedede, and in the original he even sings a song where he says "I love his Majesty" (although the word translated as "love" could mean "admire" rather than actually "have romantic feelings for").

* AnimationBump: In the later episodes of the anime, around 65~ episodes in, with far less use of ConspicuousCG. By the final few episodes, Dedede and Escargon are only animated in CG in StockFootage, leaving Kirby to be the only character to consistently be CG. Larger objects, such as the Destrayers and the Halberd, are still done in CG, however.
** Some episodes, such as episode 32, also tend to have better than average animation. As well as an abundance of wild takes from Dedede and Escargon (in 2D, of course).
