Added DiffLines:

* CompanyCrossReferences: One of the copy abilities in this game is the Smash ability, which gives Kirby his ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' moveset. The ability is acquired by defeating Master Hand, who appears as both a miniboss and as an actual boss alongside Crazy Hand.


* AntiFrustrationFeatures: Because of how open the game is due to its numerous branching paths, the game includes a map system that marks off areas you've already gone to, and also shows areas and paths you haven't accessed yet [[QuicksandBox to keep the player from getting lost or overwhelmed.]] It evens marks the rooms where you missed something like treasure chests.

''Kirby & The Amazing Mirror'' (known in Japan as ''Hoshi no Kirby: Kagami no Daimeikyū'', or "Kirby of the Stars: Great Maze of the Mirror") is the eighth main series ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' game, and the second to be made for the UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance, released in 2004. The game was published by Creator/{{Nintendo}} and developed by HAL Laboratory with assistance from Creator/{{Capcom}}, Akira, Creator/{{Dimps}}, and Flagship. The title is most notable for the shift from ''Kirby'''s typical style of a straightforward PlatformGame to a nonlinear {{Metroidvania}} with optional cooperative multiplayer.

** A ''ton'' of enemy names.

* EmergingFromTheShadows: The fight against Meta Knight starts as this, he appears as a colorless shady figure, then he becomes suddenly colored and proceeds to strike toward you ''without'' [[OutOfCharacterMoment giving you a sword]] (you only get it through eating the stars that appear whenever he strikes).
