** 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.

** 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 central plot revolves around [[SkullForAHead Necrodeus]], the BigBad of the game, who splits Kirby into 10 smaller Kirbies while the original Kirby is sleeping. Necrodeus manages to kill all the Kirbies save one that escaped alive. The lone Kirby then goes off on an adventure to save Dreamland 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.
