* CaptainErsatz: Capsule J in the SNES version is just Creator/{{Konami}}'s ''VideoGame/TwinBee'' with a headband. This was apparently so blatant that he was replaced with "Capsule J2" in ''Ultra'' and Kirby Quest of ''VideoGame/KirbyMassAttack''.

* AnimatedOuttakes: One of the special unlockables in ''Ultra'' is the BlooperReel, blooper versions of many cutscenes in the game. For example, the Milky Way Wishes opening cutscene has Marx bouncing on his ball as he tells Kirby about what's happening. In the blooper reel, Marx fell off his ball after a few hops.

* ZeroEffortBoss: Waddle Dee in The Arena. While he does have a good chunk of health, he makes no effort to attack you, and is the only boss in the series that can be defeated simply by swallowing him. He was replaced by Bandana Waddle Dee in ''Ultra'' and serves as the penultimate boss of ''Revenge of the King''. He isn't that really hard to beat, assuming that you have no Copy Ability on you...

** '''Dyna Blade''': A mysterious creature named Dyna Blade is terrorizing Dream Land, and it's up to Kirby to stop... [[MonsterIsAMommy her]]. Adds a world map, some additional powers, and a couple extras, but in the end is mostly an intro game like Spring Breeze.
** '''Gourmet Race''': Kirby and Dedede race to see who can eat the most food while still reaching the finish line first. It's pretty straightforward. Very notable for its music: the Gourmet Race theme "Get Up and Go-urmet!" is one of the staples of the ''Kirby'' franchise, and it's also a popular source for remixes on websites such as Website/YouTube.

''Kirby Super Star'' (''Hoshi no Kirby Super Deluxe'' in Japan, and ''Kirby's Fun Pak'' in PAL territories) is a 1996 [[UsefulNotes/SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem SNES]] game, and part of the ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' franchise. This game also sees the return of series creator [[Creator/MasahiroSakurai Masahiro Sakurai's]] directorship, having last worked on 1993's ''VideoGame/KirbysAdventure''. Unlike the other ''Kirby'' games, where everyone's favorite pink puffball has one long adventure, ''Super Star'' contained a number of shorter games -- its tag line on the box was "8 games in one!" Those games -- 6 main, 2 sub -- are:

* ReactorBoss: One of the bosses in Meta Knightmare Ultra is the Halberd's very reactor. It attacks with a large flame cannon, under-floor flamethrower, and ReflectingLaser turrets. The latter of which is the only way to damage the otherwise-invincible reactor.
