Unmarked spoilers below.


Kirby's Dream Land

  • Kirby's Dream Land has an awesome ending, too. Kirby defeats Dedede, TURNS INTO AN ENORMOUS BALLOON, and brings the food back to Dream Land. How awesome is that?

Kirby's Adventure / Nightmare in Dream Land

  • After spending the whole game thinking Dedede's the Big Bad, the player learns that he had been trying to seal away Nightmare the whole time. Even after getting beaten into submission, he gets up shortly afterwards to try and stop Kirby from putting the restored Star Rod into the Fountain of Dreams, going so far as to be dragged across the ground part of the way there. As if this setting the tone for his behavior in the future wasn't great enough, he ends the scene in a somewhat badass way — he swallows Kirby and the Star Rod, then spits them back out, into space, to deal with Nightmare. Ladies and gentlemen, the king of Dream Land.

Kirby's Dream Land 2

  • The ending was nothing short of memorable, if not counting as both awesome and heartwarming. After Dark Matter transforms from a katana-wielding warrior into the one-eyed monster we recognize, Kirby fights him with the Rainbow Sword in outer space as they slowly descend into re-entry through Dream Land's atmosphere. Kirby defeats Dark Matter but seemingly passes out due to exhaustion. A cutscene shows Coo glimpsing a shooting star while the rest of Kirby's animal helpers watch the sky as somber/hopeful music plays, and even Dedede is shown wondering about the fate of our hero. Kirby wakes up, only to find out he has been floating down safely thanks to the power of the Rainbow Sword, which Kirby grabs and flies around with as day breaks and the credits roll. If played on the Super Game Boy, the streak of light that comes from the sword at the last moment appears as a rainbow. Cue end. The entire sequence can be seen here.

Kirby Super Star (Ultra)

  • The series has its moments, but above them all stands the Kirby Super Star segment "Revenge Of Meta Knight" in its entirety. Storming the Castle reaching monumental levels. Seriously. And you get to hear the bad guys becoming progressively more and more afraid of you, as if you were the goshdang Batman, while you singlehandedly destroy a freakin' airship! Hell yeah.
    • The entire crew of the Battleship Halberd get one just for holding out against Kirby, even managing to shoot him out of the sky a few times. They also hold out until the very end, only escaping once the Reactor is definitively destroyed.
  • Marx gets an amazing one. After tricking Kirby into summoning Nova, he pushes him aside and wishes for control over Popstar. He then turns into an Eldritch Abomination as a result and flies off, but not before sharing this tidbit with us:
    I did it! It all went according to plan! I got the sun and moon to fight. I got you to go into space... It was all according to my perfect little plan!
    • So how did the Sun and Moon stop their fighting? When Nova starts heading towards the planet, the Sun and Moon immediately stop their battle and work together to stop Nova from destroying Popstar.
    • Then Kirby assembles the Starship, and flies into Galactic Nova through a level that plays like a Gradius style shooter, destroys the craft, and crashes onto Popstar for a final, epic duel with Marx to decide the fate of the planet.
  • In Revenge of the King, as Kirby goes to Mt. Dedede, Dedede shoots him down with KABULA, a character who hadn't appeared in OVER TEN YEARS, as Kirby falls down helplessly… and assembles the Starship out of the three Sparkling Stars he got before from the three previous bosses! Cue amazing shoot 'em up boss fight.
  • And how can we not forget the most epic quote in Kirby Super Star Ultra? When Kirby finally makes it to Dedede, who sent minion after minion — even Bandanna Waddle Dee — after him, he leads Kirby to his old boss arena, offers his old rival a Hammer to fight with, and then says this;
    King Dedede: So you made it here. Now, arm yourself! Our grudge will be settled at last... (puts on a metal mask as his new boss theme begins)
    Masked Dedede: Meet my powerful secret weapon — the brand-new Dedede Hammer!
  • Meta Knight in Meta Knightmare Ultra basically slaughters his way (including thrashing his own Halberd) to Nova, the wish-granting comet, and asks for his wish. What is this wish? To put it bluntly, he unleashes a Godlike being that was sealed away due to being too powerful and proceeds to kick its ass in a way that would make Chuck Norris proud! Why? Partly because Meta Knight just wanted to become stronger and mostly for the sheer hell of it. If that's not badass, then nothing is. His wish also indirectly has him refer to himself as the strongest fighter he knows, so the next step up would be to battle the strongest fighter that ever existed. He ends up proving himself right.
  • Marx gets another one of sorts… He's killed after crashing into Nova, drifting through space, but his soul, out of anger and pure madness, absorbs the entire power of said wish-granting comet and resurrects as an even more monstrous Eldritch Abomination just to kill Kirby at the top of the True Arena.

Kirby & the Amazing Mirror

  • Shadow Kirby gets a small one in the end. Having been just an occasional enemy that would sometimes attack you and generally perceived as evil, if you lose Meta Knight's sword during the really long Sequential Final Boss battle, he will go get it for you during the final battle.

Kirby: Canvas Curse

  • Through the magic of Fridge Brilliance, there's a major Moment of Awesome in Kirby: Canvas Curse. Consider the intro, where it says that the titular Power Paintbrush "is transported to you on a ray of light". You hold the stylus… I mean paintbrush. Now, think about the final battle, against Drawcia Soul. She is defeated by tapping the Para Matters she sends out with the stylus, and then when she moves into the foreground, simply poking her with said stylus until she is stunned, leaving her vulnerable. Kirby barely touches her at all except for dealing the occasional body-blow, everything else he does is dodging her attacks. Now, put these two things together and what does it mean? YOU WERE THE ONE WHO DEFEATED DRAWCIA! WITH HER OWN STYLUS!!! Talk about involving the player in the game!
    • The best part? It doesn't have to be Kirby to land the final hit. When she's in the foreground, tapping on her deals a little bit of damage. The result? If her HP is low enough, you can defeat Drawcia Soul just by tapping on her with the stylus.

Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition

  • Magolor gets one in the 20th anniversary collection. After Kirby, Dedede, Meta Knight, and B.W.Dee kick his alien butt six ways to Saturday, not only does he survive, he also manages to re-take the Lor and make it back to Popstar! Of course, he's had a Heel–Face Turn, but surviving Kirby in general is no simple feat! Just ask Dark Matter, Marx, 02, Drawcia, or Sectonia!

Kirby Battle Royale

  • The fact that B.W.Dee progresses through the league battles along with Kirby. While his battles are mostly offscreen (i.e those that don't involve Kirby himself), it's implied that he can keep up with Kirby just fine, which involves him defeating copies of Kirby that Dedede made.
  • The Gold League qualifier battle pits Kirby and B.W.Dee against Meta Knight and Axe Knight. Suffice to say the game doesn't pull its punches from then on.
  • In the final championship battle, after Kirby and B.W.Dee beat Dedede and one of his guards, he says that this isn't over and then forces Kirby to fight him in a 3-on-1 battle. And when Kirby wins that, Dedede calls Kirby to go to the deepest part of the building, where he's waiting with the Dededestroyer Z as the Final Boss. At first, there's nothing Kirby can do to harm it… until B.W.Dee comes to his aid by throwing a cannon onto the arena that Kirby can load with the Kirby copies that it summons. In the end, Kirby and B.W.Dee finally gets to eat the giant cake that is the tournament's prize.

Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe

  • Magolor Epilogue. This post-game story centers on Magolor, now stripped of his magic, fighting his way through inter dimensional space and slowly regaining his powers while he takes on alternate element versions of various bosses.
    • The final boss. None other than the Master Crown itself! After everything Magolor has been through, betraying his friends, being shot down by Landia, and reduced to a mindless puppet, he finally gets to take his revenge on the very thing that caused him so much misery. Speaking of which, the fight itself is such a spectacle! After beating the Crowned Doomer, the Master Crown’s power now inside the gem apple is unleashed. And Magolor is taken to an ancient city while fire is raining down from above. And from the red sky descends the Master Crown, now appearing as, what can only be described as an angelic gem apple tree. Altogether it looks as though Magolor is ready to face off against a herald of the apocalypse.
  • After defeating the Master Crown itself (fused with a Gem Apple Seed), Magolor finds a sword in the rubble as it grows in size and transforms into Magolor's own Ultra Sword, culminating in a quick-time event between Magolor and the Master Crown and resulting in Magolor perfectly slicing through the crown's tree form in half, destroying it once and for all.
