** Not only does Sword Kirby regain the SwordBeam [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda at full health]], it now has a chargeable SpinAttack! In this game, the Spin Attack hits targets more than once instead of a single time that simply does more damage at once like in its inspiration series, often making it useful for shaving off enemies' health, especially for enemies that are more durable.

* SpeakingSimlish: WordOfGod states Magalor essentially speaks "Magalorese" throughout the game and that the subtitles that appear everytime he speaks provide translations to what he says. Indeed, it's actually possible to hear his voice in-game when he does so (except during a certain cutscene). It's mostly unintellectual aside from a few words like Kirby's name.

* AnotherDimension: The portal that Kirby opens with a Super Ability leads to that place where you fight the Sphere Doomers for Energy Spheres, and later, [[spoiler:Magolor after defeating Landia]]. [[spoiler:Apparently, this world uses the Trope Name.]]

* BackgroundMusicOverride: The theme song to the super abilities are programmed to do this almost every time you obtain one one, more obvious when you hack the game to use them within areas where they can't normally be used within (like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2TH_oH2PsM the True Arena]], for example).

* ContinuityNod: [[spoiler:Oh, BOY, where do we start with HR-D3? It refers to two bosses form earlier in the series: the HR-H/E, the boss of Shiver Star in ''Kirby 64'' (hence the HR part), and the robot Dedede at the end of ''Kirby's Dream Course'' (hence the D3 part). This boss also appeared earlier in the series, at the end of the second stage of the ''Kirby Mass Attack'' sub-game Kirby Master. Apparently, this is a completed form of the latter, but with HR-H's methods of attacking, [[FridgeBrilliance which makes sense considering Dedede helped Kirby in]] ''[[FridgeBrilliance Kirby 64]]''. All of its attacks in its first form are modified versions of HR-H's attacks. Also, the way it TurnsRed is in itself a nod: While other bosses in the game Turn Red at 50-60% health remaining, HR-D3 has two full health bars, much like many of the bosses from Kirby 64. On top of all this, HR-D3 is a recolor of the Dedede mech that appeared in the cancelled GCN ''Kirby'' game.]]
** Some of the levels in Onion Ocean use Kine's theme from ''Kirby's Dream Land 2'' as background music. ''Loads'', mostly to ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar'' and its remake. In this installment of the series, the developers have referenced nearly ''everything'' VideoGame/{{Kirby}}-related. Now has its [[ContinuityNod/KirbysReturnToDreamLand own page]].

* TheDayTheMusicLied: A pretty obvious one in Nutty Noon's boss stage. You pick your powerup, go to where the boss should be, and...the end-of-level music is playing? But we haven't beaten anything yet? And there's the item we're supposed to get... When you pick it up, the usual ItemGet [[LettingTheAirOutOfTheBand music goes sour]] and [[spoiler:the prize turns into Grand Doomer]].

** [[spoiler:In Extra Mode, he outright [[MostDefinitelyNotAVillain tells you that Landia guards a crown that allows the wearer to]] [[ObviouslyEvil rule the universe,]] [[MostDefinitelyNotAVillain and that Landia will not part with it easily, and that therefore you should defeat Landia post-haste, with a cheerful expression that could not possibly be sinister in any way.]] Of course, this is before the second time you fight him as the final boss, so nothing is truly spoilt.]]

* MultiStageBattle: Goriath did this by smashing the snowy floor after you hit him enough. It turns from snow to icy to both etc.
* NewGamePlus: Beating the game once unlocks Extra Mode (a throwback to the original ''Kirby's Dream Land''), where your LifeMeter is reduced by a third, the enemies now come in various sizes, [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2 Phanto]]-esque foes are now added to ''every'' area with a key, and the bosses are harder. [[spoiler:Also, Magolor's OneWingedAngel form is now more powerful than ever, especially when you finally encounter Magolor Soul. And before that, the Metal General, a normal boss in the regular game, summons HR-D3, the robot from the cancelled Gamecube game and the Kirby Quest subgame from ''Mass Attack'', becoming a three form Sequential Boss.]]

** There are also the PocketDimension challenges in some levels that qualify, which have an AdvancingWallOfDoom, and the farther you get in the game the more additional obstacles you have to avoid and the faster the wall advances.
