** is more melancholic than anything. Sure we could say it's showing the sadness that the adventure is over, but.. [[FridgeHorror it isn't really over.. is it?]] [[spoiler: It's not, as elements from this game return in ''Triple Deluxe'' and ''Planet Robobot''. There really ''is'' a buried story here...]]

* In ''VideoGame/Kirby64TheCrystalShards'', your FairyCompanion, Ribbon, [[{{Understatement}} ends up going through a lot]]; she briefly loses her home planet of Ripple Star to Dark Matter, who also ends up destroying the very MacGuffin that can defeat him. When she wakes up, all she sees for a brief moment is a single small Crystal Shard, with the remaining scattered across the galaxy. Until Kirby offers to help, as far as Ribbon was concerned, she'd most likely failed.
** This hits its hardest as the group is finally about to head to Ripple Star; the entire place is engulfed in Dark Matter, which [[BreakTheCutie nearly sends Ribbon to the brink of crying]]. Sure, it's immediately followed by a [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments heartwarming moment]], but that doesn't change the fact that she saw her entire planet in such a sorry state. [[TheWoobie Poor girl...]]

* Alternatively, Star Dream's fate is tragic since [[ShaggyDogStory it was all for nothing.]] Upon gaining Haltmann's soul, it becomes sentient and tries to [[OmnicidalManiac accomplish it's goal]] in the way that [[LiteralGenie it's system can understand.]] Once it inhales Kirby during it's [[TrueFinalBoss Soul OS]] fight, it eventually loses it's sentience and regresses back into a mindless killing machine.

** Worst part is, since this game is centered around death, it's an implication that you've well and truly killed Kirby off for good...

** Perhaps the worst part? [[spoiler: The problem wasn't with Susie. She wasn't dead, merely trapped in Another Dimension. Star Dream may have had limited capability to recreate life, but it can teleport things just fine. The problem was that Haltmann had tried wishing on Star Dream so much that ''his own memories'' were being wiped out, to the point where when she actually does return, he doesn't even remember having a daughter.]]

* ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand2'' has a Sad Ending if you did not collect all the Rainbow Drops. Although Kirby succeeds in defeating King Dedede,[[spoiler: there is no indication that [[BiggerBad Dark Matter]] has left the possessed Dedede, nor is he able to form the [[EleventhHourSuperPower Rainbow Sword]] without all the Rainbow Drops. With that, Parasol Kirby and his friends are shown [[GreyRainOfDepression walking back in the rain]] with very downbeat music playing throughout, ending with Kine looking to the sky and sensing that something is not right]].

* The GameOver screen for ''VideoGame/KirbyMassAttack''. Whilst the other Game Over screens in the series tend to be relatively tame, showing Kirby still alive and with a relatively upbeat ''"come on, just one more try!"'' feel to them, [[http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/pIi7efaJJGc/hqdefault.jpg this one]] pulls no punches. [[TotalPartyKill After all your Kirbies die]], the heroic heart fades away- and it cuts to a scene of one lone deceased Kirby (Complete with [[WingedSoulFliesOffAtDeath angel wings]] and [[UndeathlyPallor his usual bright colours faded to a dull grey]].) in a pitch-black void, floating motionlessly in a column of light with very [[SimpleScoreOfSadness forlorn, mournful]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kme8fdAX7Vg music]] playing.
** With the general light-hearted, positive tone of the other Game Over screens in the series, it's quite the PlayerPunch to see Kirby's broken and lifeless form just floating there, really driving in the sense that [[ItsAWonderfulFailure you've failed]].
* The ending of ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot''. [[spoiler: After destroying the FinalBoss for good by [[ThisIsADrill drilling through it]] with his Robobot Armor, Kirby is unconscious and his own mech moves its arm to grab Kirby and throw him back to Pop Star, while it floats aimlessly in space and [[TearsFromAStone sheds tears]]. It sacrificed itself for the safety of its driver]].
* What ends up happening to [[spoiler:President Haltmann]] in the same game doubles up as both this and [[NightmareFuel/{{Kirby}} Nightmare Fuel]]. After [[spoiler:reactivating the ancient supercomputer and [[PhysicalGod Galactic NOVA]] Star Dream]], he wishes for it to [[spoiler:resurrect his daughter Susie, who died in an accident many years ago]]. Although it apparently [[spoiler:[[CameBackWrong brought her back to some extent]]]], he's not aware of it, and [[TragicVillain he's ultimately driven mad by his own grief and loneliness]], from then on only focussing on the prosperity of his company and his machines. Then, after he does reveal [[spoiler:Star Dream]] to Kirby and is about to activate it himself, [[spoiler:[[TheStarscream Susie]] betrays him by stealing the helmet he uses to control it-- causing him to be assimilated into the supercomputer, which takes his other wish for eternal prosperity of his machinery and company [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor as a command to erase all organic life in the Universe]]. Then, Star Dream eventually proceeds to [[DeaderThanDead completely erase him from existence]] [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness after it's done hijacking his consciousness]]]]. There's literally ''nothing'' left of him.
** It's particularly exemplified by the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpLdQcwtjac tragic, hopeless-sounding boss music]], and [[spoiler:his last monologue in the FlavorText screen for Star Dream Soul OS, when he's fully aware of what's happening to him]]--
-->'''[[spoiler:Haltmann]]''': Why did I reactivate such a terrible machine? Oh, I remember...[[spoiler:I wanted to see her just one last time]]. How foolish! [[AlasPoorVillain I should have known that no machine could make such a dream come true.]]
