* CutscenePowerToTheMax: Kirby in the ending inflates himself to be bigger than Dedede's castle so he can carry it and return the food inside to the Dream Landers. However, this could be explained as him drawing from the power of the Sparkling Stars, since they go into him before he does so.

* TheStinger: After beating the game the first time, you see King Dedede land in front of the code for for Extra Mode after getting tossed out his castle. He eventually recovers, throws a small tantrum and runs off. Once you beat the Extra Mode, he once more lands in the same area (this time for the Debug Mode) but can't even bring himself to get up. Kirby eventually shakes him awake and Dedede cries for moment before sulking off in defeat.

Dedede.

Created and directed by a young HAL employee named Creator/MasahiroSakurai (he was just '''19''' when he came up with the Kirby character), the game was deliberately designed to be short and easy to allow younger kids to get into video games without having to contend with the [[NintendoHard high difficulty]] that Nintendo titles were infamous for. The venture proved to be a success, sparking the growth of one of HAL's most famous franchises.
