* ThisLookLikeAJobForAquaman: Copy, while normally a completely-useless and redundant ability, has a few hidden strengths. Using it on Scarfies, which can't be inhaled, grants you the all-powerful Crash ability. Also, in Milky Way Wishes (where Kirby's Copy Ability doesn't work), Copy becomes ''much'' more useful; [[spoiler:for this reason, it's well-hidden on the secret planet "?"]].

* SpiritualSuccessor: ''Kirby'' creator Creator/MasahiroSakurai developed both this game and ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'', which features a near-identical combat system. In fact, ''VideoGame/TheSubspaceEmissary'' from ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl'' can be summed up as "''Kirby Super Star'' in 3D".

** ''Ultra'' redoes all of the visuals, which also has the benefit of replacing the pre-rendered CGI level visuals from the original, which, like ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'''s, were fantastic for their time, but look very much outdated today. The new visuals rely much less on CGI, and have generally aged better.

* EliteTweak: Copy is mostly a useless curiosity of an ability (see ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman below for situations where it's useful) for ''Kirby''. By contrast, the helper that Copy spawns, T.A.C., is generally felt to be the best character in the game for player two.



* MagikarpPower: Copy, while normally a completely-useless and redundant ability, has a few hidden strengths. Using it on Scarfies, which can't be inhaled, grants you the all-powerful Crash ability. Also, in Milky Way Wishes (where Kirby's Copy Ability doesn't work), Copy becomes ''much'' more useful; [[spoiler:for this reason, it's well-hidden on the secret planet "?"]].

* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: If you copy the abilities of the enemy [[ThiefBag T.A.C.]], you'll gain the power Copy, which... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin allows you to copy the abilities of an enemy]], which would be great if that was not Kirby's ''default superpower''. It's NotCompletelyUseless, but the times it is useful are highly situational. On the other hand, making a T.A.C. helper effectively gives a second player the ability to copy (and discard) powers at will as well.

* DefeatEqualsFriendship: After Kirby defeats Dyna Blade and helps feed her baby chicks, the giant bird becomes friendly with him. [[spoiler: She later repays Kirby in "Revenge of Meta Knight" by helping him get back onto the Halberd.]]

* GuideDangIt: The location of the secret planet "?" in Milky Way Wishes can be found only if you look up its location or fly around aimlessly for no particular reason and discover it by accident. Not so much in ''Ultra,'' as the planet is marked by a blinking star that [[ConspicuouslyLightPatch stands out amongst the background]].

* GuideDangIt: The location of the secret planet "?" in Milky Way Wishes can is hidden on a large green star that, while somewhat distinctive, likely would be found only if you look up its location overlooked and ignored unless one used a guide or fly flew around aimlessly for no particular reason and discover discovered it by accident. Not so much in ''Ultra,'' as the planet is more clearly marked by a blinking star that [[ConspicuouslyLightPatch stands out amongst the background]].
