* BonusFeatureFailure:
** The Ghost ability can only be unlocked by assembling the Ghost Medalion and allows Kirby to control any {{Mook}} in the game. However, the enemies you can possess are all horribly outclassed in terms of mobility, power and durability even by regular Kirby. Even worse, Ghost Kirby is worthless against bosses and can't even go down stairs.
** The Triple Star Rod is supposed to be this game's InfinityPlusOneSword, but is horribly outclassed by many other abilities. In particular, Kirby won't lose the UFO ability between levels, and it's just as overpowered as it's ever been.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: This is the only game where the real, [[GrandTheftMe unpossessed]] Meta Knight himself doesn't throw Kirby a sword before he and Kirby battle each other (though there is still a Sword bubble in the room beforehand). [[spoiler:This is a hint towards Meta Knight's true motivation behind stealing the chest from Kirby before he could get a chance to opening it, since he's not taking chances this time.[[note]]He could also fight an unarmed Kirby if his time is wasted in ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar'', even though his ship was rapidly sinking in that situation.[[/note]]]]

** Landing the final hit on a boss causes the background to turn red, freeze-frame style, before the boss does its death animation.



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Not the Squeaks themselves, despite being mice, but [[spoiler:Kirby's Strawberry Shortcake. We never find out where it actually is. Though since a FreezeFrameBonus of the intro shows that it was a [[{{Mooks}} Waddle Dee]] who took it, then either said Waddle Dee [[KarmaHoudini enjoyed a nice stolen shortcake and didn't get involved with the game after the theft]], or said Waddle Dee was one of the ''many'' Waddle Dees faced and killed/eaten throughout the game and Kirby unknowingly avenged his shortcake.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MistakenForThief: When Kirby's strawberry shortcake gets stolen, he thinks Dedede did it. Then, when the Squeak Squad (a group of thieving mice) show up, he thinks they did it. It's unknown if they did, but Dedede is innocent.

Added DiffLines:

* MissionPackSequel: The core gameplay is virtually identical to its predecessor ''Kirby: Nightmare in Dreamland'' aside from the new touch screen mechanics.


Gameplay remains similar to previous installments (namely ''[[VideoGame/KirbyAndTheAmazingMirror Amazing Mirror]]'', minus the {{Metroidvania}} gameplay), with the addition of the touch screen (aka Kirby's [[StomachOfHolding stomach]]) acting as the inventory for the titular pink puffball to store items in. In addition, new Copy Abilities are introduced. Those being [[TunnelKing Animal]], [[BubbleGun Bubble]], [[ExtraOreDinary Metal]], [[OurGhostsAreDifferent Ghost]][[note]] Only unlockable if you managed to get all parts of the mysterious Ghost Medal, which summons a midboss so you can inhale it for the ability[[/note]] and [[spoiler:Triple Star]]. Some Copy Abilities also interact with the environment (for example, Fire burns down tall grass), and some abilities (namely Sword or Bomb) can be [[ElementalWeapon combined with various elements]] (for example, Fire Sword and Ice Bomb).

[[spoiler:After Kirby defeats Dark Nebula, he never got his shortcake back, but as soon as he arrives back home, he gets a spare one from the Squeaks as an apology for what they've done.]]

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:
