* BaseBreaker: While the game itself is good and many people think it's interesting, quite a few feel the games main gimmick of controlling multiple [[{{Lilliputians}} Lilliputian]] versions of Kirby could have been better used with a series where it made more sense, such as the ''VideoGame/{{Pikmin}}'' series.

** Making this even worse is that we are given absolutely ''no'' indication as to whether Necrodeus was [[PragmaticVillainy trying to preemptively]] [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim remove Kirby]] [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy as a threat]] or just [[KickTheDog committing random murder]] [[ForTheEvulz for kicks]]. Given that his name means "death god", the latter is extremely plausible. Also, Daroach hints that Necrodeus despises beings of light, which presumably includes Kirby.

* BizarroEpisode: 4-10 and 4-11. In Volcano Valley, a fire-haunted area, we have [[spoiler: chasing after a switch taken by astronaut monkeys, buliding a spaceship from a puzzle, Space Is An Ocean, monsters that create black holes, gravity switches in another space station run by said monkeys...]]

** Level 4-9: This is the last level for a very good reason, as it's the single hardest gold star in the entire game to get and hard enough just to beat normally. It starts in a graveyard with three familiar pictures on the graves you pass. You eventually reach a fourth gravestone with a new image on it and push it aside to reveal a passage that leads into a room under the first three tombstones you passed and see three doors as well as a fourth door that's locked until you investigate the first three doors. In each door is [[spoiler:[[BackFromTheDead a boss that you previously defeated]], [[BossRush which include the giant worm Big Warwiggle, the ancient gear Great Gear, and the wooden fish King Eelongo]] [[OhCrap (in toxic water no less, which causes you to lose your air twice as quickly),]] [[ThisIsGonnaSuck all resurrected and even stronger than before.]]]] After you go through all three doors and open the fourth door to reach the exit, [[spoiler:[[ThatOneBoss you are attacked by the boss of this area, whose picture was on the fourth grave outside. This boss, Buzzy Bat, is a giant bat who is almost impossible to beat without getting hurt, even with lightning fast reflexes, and thanks to FakeDifficulty, landing the final hit on him without getting hurt is basically a game of luck.]]]] Getting this gold star will probably take many tries even if you ''are'' skilled, but if you can pull this one off, you can get all of the other gold stars easily.

* MoralEventHorizon: Necrodeus splitting Kirby into ten smaller Kirbys and trying and kill them (one little Kirby escaped, thankfully).
* ScrappyMechanic: In this game Kirby has a limited air meter for breathing underwater that must be replenished with air bubbles which probably doubles as a ShoutOut to ''SonicTheHedgehog''. Yes, this is as annoying and frustrating as it sounds, [[spoiler: and it gets even worse later when you have to swim in toxic water that drains your air meter twice as quickly.]]

** Interestingly enough, as far as [[NoDamageRun gold stars]] go, the toughest world boss is the very first one Whispy Woods, as the timing to attack him without him countering and hurting you in the process is very minuscule. Otherwise, he falls straight into WakeUpCallBoss territory.
** [[spoiler: [[BossRush Level 4-9 counts for this in its entirety, especially the last part. Just read below.]]]]
*** [[spoiler: While this is part of 4-9]], Buzzy Bat deserves special mention. He's the last miniboss in the game for good reason; the fight deals with breaking his shield of bats and finally hitting him, which instantly destroys the whole shield as you start beating him up. If you take too long, he combines with the shiels to form a monstrous cycloptic bat that you can only run from and wait for to break. As you go on, the shields become more complex and starts to add giant, invincible, spiked bats. The final shield has three of them and small openings to actually attack the main bat.
** Mr. Shine and Mr. Bright in Strato Patrol EOS. It's a DualBoss where you have to deal with Mr. Bright firing rather big lasers at you or giant circles of energy at you while Mr. Shine becomes invincible and spins throughout the room. Oh, and if you kill Mr. Bright, Mr. Shine proceeds to ''revive him''. [[spoiler: And if you kill Mr. Bright four times, Mr. Shine proceeds to merge with the remnants of Mr. Bright and goes berserk, firing lasers at fast speeds and spinning in a new fashion.]] Meta Knight later on is also pretty tough, especially when he charges throughout the room. And you fight [[spoiler: Nightmare]], the FinalBoss, immediately afterwards.
* ThatOneLevel: For anyone playing this game and trying to get OneHundredPercentCompletion which has a task of beating each level and the bosses [[NoDamageRun without getting hurt]] to get all of the gold stars, you should know or remember these levels:
** Level 3-6: This level is ''very'' long with tons of enemies, and is ''very'' easy to hit while trying to play through it. And it only gets worse, as it has a difficult underwater boss fight at the end. [[ScrappyMechanic Keep in mind that this is one of the only times Kirby has a limited air meter for breathing underwater that must be replenished with air bubbles.]] [[OhCrap and you'll realize the hardest part of this whole ordeal.]]
** Level 3-11: This is more due to FakeDifficulty than anything else, as you're in a giant tree that's swaying back and forth depending on which side you move the Kirbies to, and you have to move quickly to avoid leaning the tree in one direction too long and causing the whole tree to topple over resulting in an instant death. The hardest part in this level is around the halfway point where you have to carefully dodge several rows of spike balls followed by a giant spike ball afterwards, which is ''almost'' impossible to do while moving all of your Kirbies upward. Fortunately, if you can make it past this sequence without getting hurt, the rest of the level is ''much'' easier.

* CompleteMonster: Necrodeus, no doubt. Reason? He crosses the MoralEventHorizon by [[NightmareFuel NEARLY KILLING Kirby at the beginning of the game]], first by splitting him into ten smaller, weaker versions of himself and then murdering nine of the ten, leaving only one to escape this massacre by literally following his heart.
