While ''Kirby's Adventure'' on the {{NES}} [[TropeCodifier codified]] the Kirby formula, ''Super Star'' is considered to be the game that perfected it, and is arguably the franchise's -- and creator Masahiro Sakurai's -- MagnumOpus. It was remade in 2008 as ''Kirby Super Star [[SuperTitle64Advance Ultra]]'' (''Hoshi no Kirby: Ultra Super Deluxe'' in Japan), which added a handful of extra games to the mix, bringing the total to '''16''' games in one:

Added DiffLines:
* VignetteEpisode: Unlike most games in the series that have one straightforward plot, this game features multiple modes that each contain their own little story and a unique set of rules to boot.

** '''Revenge of Meta Knight''' (AKA "'''Meta-Knight's Revenge'''"): Meta Knight is setting out to conquer Dream Land in his massive flying battleship, the Halberd, [[RuleOfThree and it's up to Kirby to stop him]]. In this game, the [[TimedMission levels are timed -- failing to clear it within a certain amount of time results in a loss]]. Also noted for the story -- Meta Knight and his crew can be heard talking about Kirby attacking, and the crew is visibly [[MookHorrorShow freaking out]] as he [[BattleshipRaid lays waste to the Halberd.]]

** '''[[RevengeOfTheSequel Revenge of the King]]''': Like Spring Breeze, this game follows the story of the original ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand''. The trick this time is that this is a remake of ''Kirby's Dream Land's'' '''Extra''' (or hard) Mode, so the enemies, especially the bosses, are a lot tougher. This includes a fight against war-blimp Kabula, mid-bosses from ''[[VideoGame/KirbysAdventure Kirby: Nightmare In Dream Land]]'', and a [[TookALevelInBadass brand-new]] King Dedede.

However, the pun's lost when they decided to call the equivalent mode in ''Kirby Super Star Ultra'' Meta Knightmare Ultra.

** Being a remake of ''Kirby's Dream Land's'' Extra Mode, the ending of Revenge of the King is reminiscent of its last after-credits scene. [[spoiler:It had a crying Dedede walking off the screen while Kirby follows to confort him. Revenge of the King has the Waddle Dee troops supporting their depressed master instead]].

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: Going from playing ''Super Star'' to its DS remake can be quite difficult control-wise. In the original, it used the classic SNES control scheme of B being jump and Y attack, with A being used to summon a helper. In ''Ultra'', they went for control consistency with the GBA games and ''Squeak Squad'', having B as attack and A as jump (with X being used to create a helper). It can also be tricky if you, say, play ''Ultra'' first and then played the original on something like ''Kirby's Dream Collection.'' * DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: If you copy the abilities of the enemy [[ThiefBag Tac]], 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.

** As far as Helpers go, Tac is by far the most useful, especially against bosses. While normally he can shoot his arm out as a projectile to copy a foe's ability, most bosses don't have Copy Abilities, meaning that it deals damage instead. While it's a bit unwieldy to use, it still does good damage if used properly since it [[ChargedAttack can be charged up for quite a bit of damage]] (but it's not as effective in the air due to the charge time). From there, it can defeat several bosses in seconds. This makes him a surprisingly effective choice for clearing The Arena and Helper to Hero. He even has a guard that makes him completely invulnerable to damage by blending in with the background as an added bonus.

** When ''Ultra'' came out, some of the Computer Virus enemy characters had their names changed (Dancing Doll and Witch became Puppet and Magician, respectively). Most noticeably, one of the monsters originally went by the name of Red Dragon, but due to it receiving another palette, it was changed... to the UnfortunateName of Grand Dragon, which happens to be the title of the leader of the Ku Klux Klan. This was swiftly retranslated to Great Dragon for the English versions.
