** There were several attempts to make a console Kirby game for the [[UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube GameCube]] and later the UsefulNotes/{{Wii}}. The first of such attempts was shown in an E3 trailer, but this one fell through. The fourth attempt was finally released on the Wii as ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand''. The other three, however, seem to have found parts of them in other games; ''Kirby 3D Rumble'' and''VideoGame/KirbysBlowoutBlast'' share the 3D arena structure of the second attempt, and the upcoming game for the Switch shows the return of Helpers, an emphasis on friendship, and the return of Clean Kirby, which also came from the fourth but were not featured in ''Return to Dream Land''.

** ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand2'', ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand3'', and ''VideoGame/Kirby64TheCrystalShards'' are collectively known as the "Dark Matter Trilogy'' due to the three games having Dark Matter as the main villain(s). All three games were directed by Shinichi Shimomura instead of series creator Masahiro Sakurai (who directed all other non-spinoff games in the series prior to his departure post-''Air Ride''), and have more of a focus on puzzle solving rather than combat. Other similarities these games share include:

* UrbanLegendOfZelda: In the late 2000s there were a bevy of FanWank all centered around "plot elements" that allegedly [[LostInTranslation only existed in the Japanese versions of the games]]. Most of these centered around Dark Matter being TheManBehindTheMan to just about every ''Kirby'' Villain under the sun, with a particularly notorious one claiming Dark Matter was present in ''VideoGame/KirbyCanvasCurse'' and gave Drawcia her powers via DealWithTheDevil becoming widespread enough that it had to be wiped from this very Wiki several times. Funnily enough, some concept art later revealed Dark Matter (along with Nightmare) really ''was'' going to be in ''Canvas Curse'' albeit as a playable character rather than a boss, making it an ''enemy'' of Drawcia rather than an ally as the rumor claimed.
