  • Advertisement:
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Done in every episode.
  • British Humour: Almost every time that Kirby is thinking.
  • Captain Oblivious: All of the Cappies (minus Tiff and Tuff) are in such denial about the fact that they're about to be destroyed by an incoming meteor in episode 16 that they go as far as to walk while happily saying things like "We're not all gonna die!"

  • Christmas Episode: Three so far.
    • How the Dedede Stole Christmas.
    • Dedede's Christmas Carol.

  • Manipulative Editing: Done to create scenes where the dialogue makes sense, often looping a single animation for more words to be said.
  • Noodle Incident: The walnut skit.
  • "Not Making This Up" Disclaimer: The show will occasionaly use 4Kids' script, with the captions 'Actual 4Kids dialogue.' at the bottom of the screen.
  • Rank Up: What Sword and Blade act like happened when they think Meta Knight died.
  • Reference Overdosed: It happens in such a way that if you don't know what's being refrenced, and it isn't outright pointed out, you aren't likely to notice.
    • Many Day of The Tentacle references are made, usually in the form of sound effects, but once in an actual quote.
    • Episode 27, Mangey and Me, has many references, most notable being Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, World of Tanks, Mortal Kombat, and DOOM.
    • The Christmas special where Dedede steals Christmas has Tuff directly mentioning SSX.
    • Episode 32 is littered with references, notable examples being Star Wars, Star Trek, Age of Empires, and Pokemon. The following two episodes, and Episode 32 itself, are named after the Original Star Wars trilogy.
  • Running Gag:
    • Kawasaki bringing up the walnut skit.
    • Dedede's love for peanut butter cookies.
    • Tiff bringing up the Family Friendly Society of Family Friendliness .
    • Various characters narrating their actions, usually by saying 'running' while doing so.
    • Food themed episodes, and everyone hating them.

    • Dedede wanting to rename Kirby Abridged into Dedede Abridged.
  • Take That!: Some of the jokes are towards 4kids' censorship.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: There are two instances where Iro dies and comes back to life in the next episode he appears in. Lampshaded by Tuff in It's Not Delievery, It's Dedede.
  • Tempting Fate: In N. M. E. Strikes Back, on the way home after dealing with the rest of the miniature monster. Tuff says that things can't get any worse, then Big Whelma shows up. Meta Knight calls him out for it.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Just before becoming Mike Kirby, Kirby is somehow back to his regular size.
  • Vacuum Mouth: Every time that Kirby inhales something, usually with a snarky remark on his or Tiff's behalf.
  • Yet Another Christmas Carol: The second Christmas special is even titled Dedede's Christmas Carol.
