* AlasPoorVillain: King Dedede at the end of ''Revenge of The King''.
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The whole. Damn. Soundtrack. Check it out [[AwesomeMusic/{{Kirby}} here]].
* DracoInLeatherPants: We have Galacta Knight, who was [[spoiler:so powerful and dangerous that he had to be sealed away]]. Sounds like some horrible villainous character, right? Exactly! That is why every other fangirl draws him as an overly-cutesy, baby-faced sweetie that loves to tickle Meta Knight.
** And, of course, there's [[spoiler:Marx]]. Okay, so he did [[spoiler:incite conflict between the sun and moon just to trick Kirby into summoning NOVA, granting him the power to rule Pop Star and do whatever he pleases]], but...but he's so ''cute!'' There have been a number of fanfics either attempting to redeem him or altogether ignoring that he was evil in the first place.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Galacta Knight immediately gained a huge fanbase after ''Ultra'' was released.
** Marx is generally agreed to be the most popular villain in the series after Zero[=/=]Zero Two.
** Among regular bosses, Heavy Lobster proved popular enough to get his own theme in the remake, appear in the [[KirbyOfTheStars anime]], and appear as a boss in the Kirby Brawlball subgame in ''Kirby Mass Attack''.
* GameBreaker: Stone Kirby in ''Ultra'' completely annihilates the otherwise NintendoHard True Arena if you're willing to fight cheap and spend a lot of time in rock form to keep from being hurt.
** The Plasma and Hammer Ability can count as this as well. Plasma by virtue of being the only power with a projectile that goes across the whole screen (provided you've done at least a little charging), and Hammer because it's just so damn powerful.
** Hammer's greatest strength is unlocked for Kirby in Milky Way Wishes: when using the dash+a technique, Kirby sacrifices his Hammer ability ForMassiveDamage, but because of how abilities work in MWW, you can just re-equip Hammer and do it again almost immediately.
** Copy is the most powerful ability for any Helper. The attack is extremely fast, and it allows him to copy enemies for abilities (and a full heal) without exploding.
** In ''Milky Way Wishes'', the Copy ability, which is ordinarily pointless for Kirby to have, becomes this by allowing Kirby to bypass the gimmick of Milky Way Wishes and get his ability to copy back. Consequently, the Copy ability is very well hidden.
** TAC may also be one of the better characters for Helper To Hero. His attack is lightning fast, does surprisingly high damage, and his guard makes him completely unhittable.
* HellIsThatNoise: Combining this with MostAnnoyingSound gives you the final phase of ''"Revenge Of Meta Knight"''. OH GOD, THOSE SIRENS - this may be a good source for NightmareFuel.
** Marx Soul's death cry.
* HoYay: Kirby and his helper seem to "kiss" when one of them grabs a food item and then touches the other party. Most of the possible helpers are ''male''. Guess what's implied?
* ItWasHisSled: [[spoiler:Marx as a villain was doomed to be spread to many.]]
* MagnificentBastard: [[spoiler:Marx.]]
* SugarWiki/{{Most|WonderfulSound}} [[BlatantLies Wonderful]] [[SugarWiki/MostWonderfulSound Sound]]/ MostAnnoyingSound : [[spoiler:The cry of Marx Soul when you FINALLY defeat it.]]
* NightmareFuel: [[spoiler:Marx Soul's death cry. Dear ''gods.'']]
** Even scarier when you consider this: [[spoiler:that scream emulates his rage at losing again to Kirby after who knows HOW long of burning in the pit, his fear of death, his pain as he dies.]] Definitely NightmareFuel.
** The cutscene preceding [[spoiler:the Marx Soul battle]] can be pretty chilling as well, seeing as it shows [[spoiler:''Marx's corpse'' drifting through space, eyes staring blankly and skin drained of color. Then he's engulfed in darkness and transformed into a monstrous revenant]]. ''Brr.''
** Some found Wham Bam Rock (especially his original design) sort of creepy looking. His new design looks like a floating mask, his old design looked like a bunch of organic facial features floating in the dark.
* TheScrappy: Butterfingers[=/=]Ju-Kid, for being the only enemy that has Kirby lose his current ability with one hit, when other enemies and bosses don't require the specific number of times that Kirby is hit in order to lose his ability.
* TearJerker: The ending of ''Revenge of the King''. Poor Dedede. At least, it starts off that way, but becomes a SugarWiki/{{heartwarming|Moments}} moment when his Waddle Dees come up to console him.
* ThatOneBoss: Meta Knight. He's incredibly fast, has a lot of hard-to-dodge attacks, has a good A.I. and is a small target. In [[BossRush The Arena]], you can count on him to be the one to kill you (if you're just starting out) or force you to use a Maxim Tomato (if you're already experienced).
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: In the ''Ultra'' remake of ''The Great Cave Offensive'', the Nunchuks are gone, and all 4 Seasonal Hearts are mashed into one treasure, with Wintertime replaced with the [[VideoGame/AnimalCrossing Gold Watering Can]]. [[TropesAreNotBad However, replacing the Dud with the cellphone from]] ''VideoGame/KirbyAndTheAmazingMirror'' [[TropesAreNotBad was a nice touch]].
