** King Dedede's theme has one due to being a BootstrappedLeitmotif form of Mt. Dedede's theme from ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand'', namely the fact that it still opens with the notes originally meant to contrast with the game's normal boss theme (which opens up in a similar manner).

Dedede's theme from ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand'', namely the fact that it still opens with the notes originally meant to contrast with the game's normal boss theme (which opens up in a similar manner). On the other hand, Mt. Dedede's theme only was played in two places: When first entering the level and when fighting Dedede himself.

** The hats that Kirby gained from copying abilities originally had a bigger role in the game that they debuted in, ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar'' (and, by extension, its remake). In that game, not only does Kirby have the ability to throw off his hat at will, he can also either give it to his current helper at the time in order to turn him into a different helper, or he could simply turn his helper back into a hat just so that he could either regain the copy ability the helper represented or so that he could discard the helper. True enough, the hats had disappeared for the next two games ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand3'' and ''VideoGame/Kirby64TheCrystalShards'', only for them to return in ''[[VideoGame/KirbysAdventure Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land]]'', albeit without the ability for Kirby to toss the hat off his head, where they became a mainstay since.

* DifficultButAwesome: Using Kirby's throwing attacks (Circus Throw, Yo-Yo grab, Ice Suction) is overkill against enemies that are defeated in one hit anyway, and hard to pull off against most bosses, since the objects you can shoot back at them are often too fast, small, or erratic to grab. Manage to pull them off, though, and it can shave huge chunks off of any boss's health in one hit.
* DigitalDestruction: The Virtual Console release of ''Kirby's Dream Land 3'' changes the background colors in the [[BossRush Boss Butch]] Hyper Zone level from yellow, red, and blue to a less-pleasant yellow, orange, and green. This was likely due to increased seizure awareness, as the old colors contrast heavily and scroll on-screen rather quickly.

** Collecting some of the Shards in ''Kirby 64'' can be a bit unintuitive the first time around, even though the game itself does try to give you some hints. One particularly unintuitive shard to retrieve involves using a skill combination that transforms you into [[TheCameo stone versions of the Animal Friends]] from ''Dream Land 3'', keep using it until it transforms you into Rick the hamster, and then ''climb'' a wall up towards the shard that is too high to reach it via regular flight. Not something easy to figure, since nothing tells you that said form can climb walls that are rare to begin with (though one could figure it out if they had played ''Dream Land 3'' beforehand, as he had the same ability in that game).

* LostForever: In ''Kirby 64'', you're only allowed to fight the Waddle Doo, the possessed Adeleine, and the possessed King Dedede once and only once. After you beat them, these battles do not reappear when revisiting their levels. The only way to fight them again is to start a new file. Thankfully, it's subverted in another case. You can miss collecting the bad ending cutscene in the theater by collecting all the crystal shards before fighting the first final boss, but the cutscene will be added to the theater anyway after beating the TrueFinalBoss.

** ''The Crystal Shards'' has a notable example; Ripple Star is shown to be quite similar to Planet Popstar, down to the bright and cheerful intro stage at the beginning of each.
