The central plot revolves around [[SkullForAHead Necrodeus]], the BigBad of the game, who splits Kirby into 10 smaller Kirbys while the original Kirby is sleeping. Necrodeus manages to kill all the Kirbys save one that escaped alive. The lone Kirby then goes off on an adventure to save Dream Land and fight Necrodeus to reunite himself once more. In the meantime, Kirby is joined by the returning Squeak Squad, and Daroach, their leader, helps Kirby by giving him hints and general tips along the way.

** Daroach and the Squeak Squad are aiding Kirby. Not all that surprising, as they were remorseful at the end of ''Squeak Squad''. They're thieves, not villains, especially when compared to the [[EvilerThanThou Skull Gang]].

The fourth NintendoDS game of the ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' series, ''Kirby Mass Attack'' (known as ''Atsumete! Kirby'' or ''Gather! Kirby'' in Japan) is yet another spin-off title, this time featuring a [[VideoGame/{{Lemmings}} Lemmings-esque]] style of gameplay rather than the classic PowerCopying found in most Kirby games.

The game also features several minigames, which have [[TheCameo cameo appearances]] of characters from previous Kirby titles.

** Kirby Quest has one, too, but in regards to further in the series itself rather than further within the game. The final boss of chapter two is HR-D3, which appears as a typical Kirby boss in ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand''[='=]s Extra Mode (its hard mode, much like the extra modes of ''Kirby's Dream Land'' and ''Kirby's Adventure''). However, the insignia on its chest on ''Return to Dream Land'' is not King Dedede's sigil as in Kirby Quest, but a different symbol: [[spoiler:the sigil of its pilot in ''Return to Dreamland'', the Metal General EX.]]

* KnightOfCerebus: Necrodeus, without a doubt. As a matter of fact, he was so far the only EldritchAbomination to actually come close to '''''COMPLETELY''''' [[KilledOffForReal killing off Kirby for real]]. According to Nintendo, this guy is so powerful that he almost wipes Kirby completely out of existence. In the words of the story, it was thanks to him that "Popstar was about to lose its greatest defender and be plunged into darkness forever."

** The logo on the sub-game Kirby Quest bares a remarkable resemblance to ''VideoGame/{{Arcana}}'', which was an RPG developed by Hal Labs. Another interesting reference to ''Arcana'' is that Kirby's Quest's battle songs work in a similar way, in which the final battle song is a more upbeat version of the normal battle song.

** The star that serves as the cursor is described as Kirby's own "heroic heart", which narrowly avoided being crushed by Necrodeus. Since the Kirbys all constantly move toward it, that means [[spoiler:they're following their heart.]]

* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore: For a change there's [[DownplayedTrope angry eyes on both the American AND Japanese boxes]]. That said, the [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/atsumete_5289.jpg North American boxart]] has about half the Kirbys fighting various enemies.

** In Strato Patrol EOS, whenever you kill Mr. Bright (the sun), Mr. Shine (the moon) will revive him. Obviously, you must kill Mr. Shine first. [[spoiler: But if you kill Mr. Bright four times, Mr. Shine will decide to merge with Mr. Bright's power and goes berserk.]]

* TheCameo: In addition to the below mentioned Canon Immigrants, some characters not normally appearing in this game appear in sub-games, such as typical Kirby enemies, [[EarlyBirdCameo HR-D3]] (which ended up as a proper Kirby platformer boss in ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand''), Meta Knight, Nightmare, and none other than Dark Matter, in his first appearance outside his trilogy of games (i.e. ''Dream Land 2'', ''Dream Land 3'', and ''VideoGame/Kirby64TheCrystalShards''). Worthy of note, it also has cameos from characters that never appeared in a game, such as Escargoon from the Kirby anime.

* DarkerAndEdgier: With a BigBad that's played straight as the first (and so far only) EldritchAbomination in the games to ACTUALLY come close to killing Kirby, in contrast to the other antagonists ({{Eldritch Abomination}}s included) that Kirby CONSTANTLY trounces despite their difficulty and styles of attack, along with a series of elements exclusive to this game that would result in the deaths of certain Kirbys if not avoided, and however many Kirbys were eliminated by the {{Big Bad}}'s mooks until only one was left every time they left one of the islands, this game can easily be considered the darkest out of all the Kirby games, completely sealed in CerebusSyndrome compared to the other games.
