NOTICE: Per wiki policy, ALL spoilers below will be unmarked. You Have Been Warned.
Don't even think about it.
  • In the title screen and main menu, characters occasionally pop up to play some skits. Some of them are particularly funny. Highlights include:
    • Coo or Birdon flying in. Chef Kawasaki then shows up and chases them to cook them. Sometimes, at one scene it's Birdon noticing three Kawasakis wishing to cook him at once.
    • Characters randomly tripping while NESP is laughing at their misfortune. One must wonder if he is the one who made them trip.
      • Especially funny when Meta Knight or Dark Meta Knight "trips"... or rather, hops up to not trip.
      • There's also the chance that four allies can be seen tripping sequentially. Doubly funny if it involves Meta Knight and/or Dark Meta Knight.
    • Kirby and friends running away from Marx who's rolling on a ball after them. One of them trips but fortunately jumps up just in time as Marx continues the chase.
      • A similar scene involves Kirby strolling in and doing a stretch before two characters go running past him. When he sees that they're running from Susie in her mech suit, he starts running as well.

    • Dark Meta Knight trying to pose himself as Meta Knight to two Blade Knights...who weren't outsmarted and look at each other as if telling to each other "Is he really trying to make us believe he's Meta Knight?". And then Meta Knight shows up, Dark Meta Knight reacts with Oh, Crap!, and then Meta Knight and Blade Knights chase him.
    • A character showing up and doing their idle animation... followed immediately by Dedede coming from behind and sneezing, startling them. Double funny if it's Dark Meta Knight who gets startled. Susie's reaction is pretty funny, too—instead of looking surprised, she looks pissed off.
      • Gooey's reaction is also funny as his expression doesn't change since he always looks surprised and/or baffled.
    • Adeleine chasing three Gooeys in Mock Matter form while flailing with her paintbrush. Guess she had enough Dark Matter for her life.
    • Advertisement:
    • Adeleine and Ribbon hiding from either Dark Meta Knight, or Marx, or Gooey in his Mock Matter form before they disappear. The pair then celebrates.
    • Kirby coming in, standing for a while, and then Daroach arrives with the Squeak Squad. Storo hops and stomps on Kirby, flattening him, just like in the intro for Kirby: Squeak Squad.
    • Daroach being chased by Nago. No, seriously. Nago actually chases him. That cat really wants to catch that mouse.
    • A character showing up, followed by Dark Meta Knight popping up and chasing them. Dark Meta Knight is then seen flying away as four different-colored versions of the same character show up in the scene, like what happens to Kirby in Kirby & the Amazing Mirror.
    • Taranza yawning to himself and looking rather tired, only to get swept over by three Broom Hatters. When he gets up, he looks pretty annoyed as he tightens his scarf.
    • Adeleine and Ribbon meeting up with Susie as they start to have a nice chat. Taranza shortly notices the girls, looks away and straightens himself up to join in on their conversation. When Taranza turns back, he is surprised to see that the three have run off and chases after them.
    • Meta Knight walking in before Susie walks in as well. Later, Meta Knight notices her and gets startled as Susie waves to him, and then he runs away from her while Susie chases him. Seems like Susie turning him into a cyborg gave the normally stoic knight some unpleasant memories.
      • Better yet, Dark Meta Knight arrives mid-chase. Susie stops her chase and starts getting ideas about turning him into a cyborg too, chasing him off-screen instead.
    • Daroach flying off in the Lor Starcutter, with a distressed Magolor chasing after him.
    • Susie inspecting two 'mechanical' allies, Plugg and Gim... and then abruptly pulling a laser pistol on Bonkers, who she chases offscreen.
    • Francisca and Flamberge settling down to hang out, only for Francisca to abruptly jump up and leave at the sight of a Burnin' Leo and Blade Knight with a Sizzle Sword approaching. Flamberge shakes her fists and pulls out her sword, angrily chasing them away.
    • Kirby walking in, ready to take a nap, only to see King Dedede being chased by Taranza. Kirby attempts to give chase, returning from the other side of the screen to show Kirby still running after Taranza, who is flying away and carrying an unconscious Dedede, a la Kirby: Triple Deluxe.
    • Dark Meta Knight walking and checking his wings before stretching. Birdon then shows up while he's doing so and mimics the sequence— without Dark Meta Knight noticing.
    • Magolor making King Dedede and two other characters almost fall asleep. Even funnier if one of them is Rick, as he winds up nodding off for longer than the others. When he wakes up, he's surprised to see that everyone else has already left and runs off to join them.
    • One character would chase two other characters out the screen, with Kirby trailing behind. Then, Kirby walks back onscreen with a full belly, with the characters following Kirby but the pursuer nowhere to be found, implying that Kirby ate the pursuer. Bonus points if the pursuer is Marx, because it gives the impression that Marx is causing mischief again and Kirby ate him to give him a time-out.
  • After defeating King Dedede at the end of the first world, the credits start to roll as if you'd already beaten the game. When the HAL logo shows up, they quickly rewind back as the heart that was possessing the good king flies off.
    • Speaking of Dedede, one of the songs you can find in the sound test isn't a song or jingle. It's King Dedede, chowing down before hopping onto the battlefield and roaring. The same one that plays before his boss fight.
    • While we're on the subject of Dedede, if you enlist him as one of Kirby's allies, he will help without trouble, but he'll have a blank look on his face the whole time. As if he's thinking, "How did I end up helping this pink menace?"
    • Dedede's expression and stiff pose during Friend Train is also hilarious, as if he's thinking "How was I even roped into any of this!?"
  • You can also find the "credits" music rapidly rewinding as a separate track in Sound Test. It's as goofy as you'd expect.
  • You can choose to not pick up the Sword ability when facing Meta Knight by flying up to the ledge he is standing on, which causes it to collapse. After which Meta Knight lands by the sword he is offering and just kicks it away, splash-art and all. You can also just wait around for about a half minute instead. If you listen closely, you can hear Meta Knight whistling something as he waits.
  • The end of this game's extra mode. The same credits from the beginning of the main game play again, this time leading to the mysterious black hole that was behind Hyness. Galacta Knight comes out, complete with Boss Subtitles and theme song... only for a butterfly to appear and replace him with Morpho Knight, as if HAL was taking a shot at themselves for the perceived overusenote  of Galacta Knight. An extra mention has to go to Galacta Knight himself, who looks around in confusion at both the players and the butterfly.
  • Among the Artist ability's many sculptures is one of Susie, modeled after a Greek statue— with disproportionate head to body size, of course. After the Wave 2 update, Artist's painting attack has a chance to summon a sketch of a fat Kirby (the way he looks while holding something in his mouth), which waddles forward goofily and doesn't stop to attack.
  • The Friend Throw move has one ally (Suplex, Fighter, Beetle, Gooey) slug another with enough force to comically bounce around the entire room, destroying everything in the way.
  • Whenever you enter a door to another area while using Friend Star, whoever's currently at the very back will give a quick wave to the camera just before the Iris Out.
  • Mixing Stone Kirby/Rocky with Blizzard/Splash/Bluster turns them into the Ice + Stone ability from Kirby 64 — that is, a sliding curling stone. That's mildly entertaining on its own, but it's also compatible with Gooey and Rick, since they both have Stone in their movesets. The sight of a hamster's face on a curling stone is certainly something.
  • Rick acts more hamster-like in this game compared to earlier appearances. This includes one of his Idle Animations, where he decides to lie down and sleep... but he keeps fidgeting around, unable to find the most comfortable sleeping position. This animation goes on for over a minute and is just as ridiculous as it is adorable. Watch the whole thing here.
  • One of Daroach's moves is to pull out a blue treasure chest that's actually a jack-in-the-box of the "lord of the underworld", Dark Nebula.
  • The ending of Guest Star image for the Wave 2 dream friends is mostly cute, seeing each of them, Ribbon included, drawing with crayon on a large sheet. Dark Meta Knight, in particular, draws his sword (that is, he draws a picture of his sword with a crayon)... badly.
  • When using the Friend Train ability, the lead character gets a hat that looks like a cross between a train conductor hat and a smokestack, replacing their default hat if they have one. Daroach doesn't lose his Nice Hat. He simply has the train hat stacked on top of it.
  • One of Magolor's attacks is throwing Gem Apples that explode. In other words, playing as Magolor lets you kill enemies by literally throwing money at them.
    • At the end of Magolor's trailer he wakes Kirby up with throwing Gem Apples near him and exploding them before chuckling at surprised Kirby.
  • The boss defeat animations are humorous as usual:
    • Pon and Con are sent pinballing around the room, eventually colliding into each other head-first with bugged-out eyes. Goldon and Silvox do the same, but they slam into each other right in front of the screen as opposed to in the background.
    • The second fights with Francisca and Flamberge end with them being catapulted into space, complete with twinkle.
    • Kracko pretends to be defeated, before stopping, comically narrowing his eye, and then splitting into Twin Kracko.
    • Both parts of Twin Kracko are reduced to just an eye (plus some cloud bits) as expected, but the presence of two eyes and some bricks in the center gives it the appearance of a surprised face.
  • Upon reaching Hyness, the priest seen in the intro, he goes into a rant that speeds by faster and faster through each auto-scrolling text box. Though a lot of what he's actually saying establishes a dark context, it's presented in a very silly way.
    Hyness: We are the masters of a power driven to the far reaches of the universe, and we have but one desire! Can one such as you possibly fathom how dearly we have clung to this dream across the aeons? How could you! You couldn't! Never ever ever! We who once faced those who were in such fear of our power that they sealed us away and banished us to the edge of the galaxy! US! As if THAT loveliness wasn't enough, they tried to erase our very existence from history! RUDE! Only through our magic were we able to overcome their science and achieve great prosperity! We alone were responsible for stopping that repulsive nightmare of a galactic crisis, yet this is how you repay us! This won't stand! It won't be forgiven! It won't be forgotten! Never ever EVER! Those who called us mad, are you listening? You left us at the edge of the galaxy to be forgotten, then went along your merry way, probably living somewhere pretty and peaceful! But know this! Your future is a farce! You have none! We, masters of a matter most dark, vow to be restored, as foretold in the book of legend, which everyone thought was just a fairy tale! It WASN'T! We have already obtained the vessel that contains our Dark Lord, and he will soon awaken and shower us in compassion! Look! The vessel of our Dark Lord is filling up even as we speak! Now the time for his greatness to enter our world has come! Welcome to a new history! A new age! The age of awesome! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DARK LORD! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
  • During the fight with Void Termina's second form, you can free the Three Mage-Sisters and Hyness from the sacks they're being kept in. Once you do, they drop food items which correspond to each released mage. Francisca drops melon soda, Flamberge drops hot-dog, Zan Partizanne drops pudding. Hyness? Baby bottle of milk.
  • The pause info for Void Termina's fourth form starts off heroic before ending with "After that, lunch and a nap!". Yes, even while fighting the destroyer of everything, Kirby's still thinking about food. Made even funnier once you realize that Kirby defeats powerful incarnations of evil on a regular basis — it's just an average day for him.
  • During Whispy Woods' battle, if you only use fire attacks on him, he'll eventually catch fire and do nothing but flail around with an Oh, Crap! face while his health bar slowly depletes. The blank look on his face once he's defeated in this manner is nothing short of priceless. What's more, you can also do this to Yggy Woods and Parallel Woods.
    • Even funnier in Whispy's case because you can hit him with a Friend Heart afterwards and he'll shower you with presents, such as food and 1-Ups, as if nothing happened. This isn't an oversight either; you'll notice that where he'll usually drop fruit items, he drops cooked and grilled items if you burned him.
  • The Daroach section of Dimension III in Heroes in Another Dimension includes a puzzle where you have to release Spinni so he can travel through a small tunnel and cut a rope holding a platform up. If you don't catch on quickly enough, you'll still be underneath the platform when Spinni cuts the rope, dropping it on Daroach's head for an instant death.
  • In Heroes in Another Dimension mode, you end up fighting corrupted version of Hyness called Corrupt Hyness. Once you deplete his health enough, his hood falls off as usual. The funny part comes when he summons the Three Mage-Sisters as in the main mode battle...except he doesn't. He summons wooden logs with their articles of clothing and wigs resembling their hair instead. He even performs the same animation he would if the Mages were there, but since he obviously can't drain the life force from plain old wood, the sequence is silent save for Hyness's incantations and the music starting up. He swings with them as usual and even uses Friend Circle with them! Just the mere absurdity of that is absolutely hilarious. What makes it even better is the fact that, given this is a stronger form of Hyness, somehow the LOGS have more power than the petrified mages.
    • Speaking of Hyness, his hood will fall off during both encounters with him, at which point a text box pops up... and he lets out a verbal keysmash as he reveals his bizarre face:
    • As for his corrupted form:
    • What’s funnier is the fact that thanks to a handy translation guide in the Flavor Text, you can actually understand what Hyness is trying to say. Doing this, the message he blurts out in the Corrupt Hyness fight roughly translates to “very tasty painful hope”. Hope he enjoys that painful hope.
    • Another funny moment from the translation guide from Corrupt Hyness, apparently in Jambandran, “Jawaii” means cute. Jawaii is probably derived from the Japanese word “kawaii”, which has a similar meaning. Hearing this, one cannot unsee the image of Hyness calling things “jawaii” like an anime schoolgirl.
  • While the context for the fight against the Three Mage-Sisters is kinda depressing, it's quite funny that they decide to attack you all at once. Talk about really wanting to beat Kirby, huh? it only gets more ridiculous when your other three allies are the mages.
    • Even more amusingly, it's possible to get juggled by the Mages' attacks, especially after they pull out their special weapons; even if your health gets cleaved through like a hot knife through butter, it's admittedly quite funny watching Kirby and Co. fly back and forth across the screen by a combination of water, fire, and electric beams.
    • It's also worth noting that it's possible for the game to struggle to even render all of their attacks, especially when there's not only FIFTEEN magesnote  in battle at once, there's also so many projectiles THE GAME SLOWS DOWN TO A CRAWL. Guess magic really is powerful, no?
  • Despite being otherwise unchanged from original Soul Melter difficulty, Goldon and Silvox receive a new pause screen Flavor Text for Soul Melter EX.
    Fighting off treasure hunters is hard work, and these two dream of setting off on an adventure.
    Rumor has it they've built a raft... so why not leave?
  • When you beat Heroes in Another Dimension mode the game gives you a notification showing that the Ultimate Choice's Soul Melter EX mode is unlocked in the style of the Hard Mode notification from the first game. It even has the same code. In addition, the notification shows an 8-bit Dedede giving an Oh, Crap! expression.
    • Kirby's expression when you land on it is one that likely suggests he overdid it on the hot sauce as three additional bottles are floating and pouring their contents into the dish in addition to Kirby's.
    • When selecting this difficulty, the game calls it the "TRUE Mega-Final-Ultra-Omega battle". Such a superlative is just too ridiculous to take seriously.
    • What's your reward for managing to beat what we're pretty certain is the hardest challenge in Kirby history? The ability to switch to Kirby's original design. Now you can play through all of Story Mode/Heroes in Another Dimension as Kirb!
      • Not only that, but the timing of said unlock has made people speculate that said Kirb is a reincarnated Void. This helps his presence in the game become even funnier thanks to the possibility that the ages-old God of the Kirby multiverse is strutting around Popstar with an unflinching derp face.

How well does it match the trope?
