** Western commercials and box art also depicted Kirby as white just like the typical Game Boy screen, though Kirby was pink in Japan from day one.[[note]]Well mainly, anyway. There had actually been a dispute as to what color he should be: Masahiro Sakurai wanted him to be pink, but Creator/ShigeruMiyamoto wanted him to be yellow.

It was also released for the UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS UsefulNotes/VirtualConsole in 2011 and appeared in ''Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition'' in 2012. It also served as heavy inspiration for the "Spring Breeze" sub-game in ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar'' for the [[UsefulNotes/SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem SNES]], as well as "Revenge of the King" in the ''Kirby Super Star Ultra'' [[VideoGameRemake remake]] for the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS. [[note]]It should be noted however, that in terms of presentation, it's really a parody of "Revenge of Meta Knight", also from Kirby Super Star.[[/note]]

* DubNameChange: Some of the items were renamed in the original localization: Mike became Microphone, Superspicy Curry became Spicy Food, Sweet Potato became Mint Leaf, and [[HyperactiveMetabolism Energy Drink]] became Pep Brew. The oddest has to be the [[TrademarkFavoriteFood Maxim Tomato]] which became a "Bag of Magic Food". While most of these renames didn't carry over to subsequent installments, the Mint Leaf did: when it reappeared in [[VideoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe Kirby Fighters]], it was given a unique model during localization.
