The story begins with the Mirror World being taken over by Dark Mind, and Meta Knight going in to try and stop it. Meanwhile, as Kirby is walking he is attacked by a dark copy of Meta Knight from the Mirror World and split into four Kirbys of different colors. The four board a warp star and chase Dark Meta Knight into the Mirror World.

* DubNameChange: The most amount out of any game in the series thus far (and arguably since), due to all the observable names of enemies that got muddled in translation (such as "[[JapaneseRanguage Mr. Flosty]]" from Mr. Frosty and "[[ComicalTranslation Leap]]" from Lip), as well as the mini-game "[[MeaningfulName Gigaton Punch]]" to "Crackity Hack", among other examples. Needless to say, this was a point of controversy in the fandom, and Nintendo would go on to say their localization was [[FanDisservice based on the perceived market of the age demographic]].
** Even abilities weren't safe, with a grand total of three renamed (the most out of any game). Minimum had a minor change to Mini and [=SmaBro=] had a reasonable alteration to Smash, but most notably Angel was altered to [[{{Bowdlerise}} Cupid]]. This is despite the fact that Cupid is a specific mythological figure than a general one, arguably making the change [[TranslationTrainWreck MORE]] religious (which was clearly unintentional). This was [[CutAndPasteTranslation retained]] in ''Squeak Squad'', but was [[ConvenientlyPreciseTranslation reverted]] in the ability's cameo in ''Triple Deluxe''.

* InfinityMinusOneSword: The Smash ability; it's rare because the rare encounters with [[GiantHandsOfDoom Master Hand]], except for two where he's joined by Crazy Hand, or if you [[EasterEgg swallow two Noddys and let the selection stop itself]] are the only opportunities to obtain the ability until the copy ability room is unlocked (which requires all doors connecting to the hub or doors connecting to such rooms to be unlocked, thus this method is only available late in the game without SequenceBreaking) since no plain mooks grant it, but as the ''SuperSmashBros'' moveset for Kirby it mimics has moves taken from the Stone and Hammer abilities, it's useful for both breaking silver blocks requiring certain abilities (and unlike other moves, regardless of angle needed to break the blocks) and pounding in wooden stakes, though another ability would be needed to light fuses. That, and, it's [[RuleOfCool cool]].

* ShoutOut: Master Hand appears as a miniboss in several places, and in combination with Crazy Hand is the boss of Candy Constellation. Additionally, one of Kirby's abilities in this game is the Smash ability, which gives Kirby his ''SuperSmashBros'' moveset (except for the standard special, which mimics his neutral-A), and is acquired by eating Master Hand.
