* WhiteAndGreyMorality: In "Dyna Blade". Kirby (white) sets out to find Dyna Blade (grey), only to find that she ravaged the crops to feed her babies.



** Once he gains power from Nova, [[spoiler:[[MonsterClown Marx]]]] gains hearts on many parts of his body, especially his glistening [[PowerGivesYouWings wings]]. Did we mention that he's a psychotic, [[FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon deceptively cute]] monster who manipulated [[spoiler:Kirby into helping him gain said power?]]

** Several treasures in The Great Cave Offensive refer to other Creator/{{Nintendo}} games, including the Screw Ball ([[Franchise/{{Metroid}} Screw Attack]]), [[VideoGame/MarioAndWario Bucket]], [[VideoGame/FZero Falcon Helmet]], Turtle Shell ([[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros Koopa Shell]]), [[VideoGame/EarthBound Mr. Saturn]], [[VideoGame/DonkeyKong Kong's Barrel]], and [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Triforce]].[[note]]As the ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' series was not yet localized outside Japan by the time of ''Super Star'', the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Falchion]] was changed to the generic "Sword" in the English version. This was changed back in ''Ultra''.[[/note]] In ''Ultra'', several items were replaced with more references, such as Zebra Mask with [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2 Phanto]] [[VideoGame/DokiDokiPanic Mask]], Nunchucks with Machine Parts ([[VideoGame/KirbyAirRide Hydra]]), Summertime with [[VideoGame/KirbyCanvasCurse Power Paintbrush]], Dud with [[VideoGame/KirbyAndTheAmazingMirror Cell Phone]], Autumntime with [[VideoGame/KirbySqueakSquad Three-Star Cane]], and Wintertime with [[VideoGame/AnimalCrossing Gold Watering Can]].
** Another one that appears in ''Ultra'': in Revenge of the King, Kabula fires what seems to be [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros Bullet Bills]] during the boss fight.

Added DiffLines:

** A few worlds from ''Kirby's Adventure'' reappear in Revenge of Meta Knight. After the crew knocks Kirby off deck, they mention flying off to Grape Gardens for a test. Meanwhile, Kirby travels through sundrenched islands similar to Orange Ocean and a mountainous forested area reminiscent of Yogurt Yard before finally recouping with the Halberd.

* JapaneseRanguage: One of the items in The Great Cave Offensive is called Ramia's Scale, which was pretty obviously supposed to be Lamia's Scale. Curiously, even in ''Super Star Ultra'', where some names were changed from the original localization (like Orihalcon to {{Orichalcum}}) and even those from other games (like Kaboola from the original ''Kirby's Dream Land'' to Kabula), this was ''not'' fixed.

* TheBusCameBack: In Revenge of the King, the fourth boss is Kabula, a boss that hasn't been seen since ''Kirby's Block Ball'', nearly ''[[LongBusTrip thirteen years prior]]''.

** This is the first ''Kirby'' game in which the Sword ability gives him [[Franchise/TheLegendofZelda Link's cap]], as well as {{Sword Beam}}s at full health. Likewise, the Yo-Yo ability seems to be based on [[Videogame/{{EarthBound}} Ness]], right down to the ability's background resembling ''Videogame/EarthBound's'' menu screen.
