Kirby Super Star, known as Kirby's Fun Pak in the PAL and 星のカービィスーパーデラックス (Hoshi no Kābī Sūpā Derakkusu, lit. "Kirby of the Stars Super Deluxe") in Japan, is a game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System that was developed by HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo. It was released in Japan on March 21, 1996 and in North America on September 20, 1996, while PAL regions saw its release on January 23, 1997. Unlike other games in the series, it is notable for not following a single storyline, but instead consisting of seven different main games and two sub games, each with its own story and gameplay elements.

In 2008, the game received an enhanced remake named Kirby Super Star Ultra on the Nintendo DS.

Antagonists

Enemies

During most of the main games (excluding Gourmet Race and The Arena), Kirby encounters various enemies that he can interact with on his adventure, some of which may only be found in certain games. Most of these can be inhaled and either spat at other enemies, causing damage, or swallowed. Swallowing certain opponents may grant Kirby a Copy Ability (except in Milky Way Wishes, where no abilities can be acquired from foes).

Every enemy in the game, apart from those that are invincible, possesses a certain amount of health that Kirby must take down if he decides to defeat it by using physical attacks instead of inhaling it. In all main games apart from The Great Cave Offensive, eliminating an opponent by inhaling or otherwise destroying it adds a certain amount of points to Kirby's score, which varies depending on the enemy.

Mid-Bosses

Mid-Bosses are stronger opponents encountered at different points throughout many of the game's stages. When Kirby engages in battle with one or multiple Mid-Bosses, he usually cannot progress further until all Mid-Bosses on the screen have been destroyed. Like bosses, each possesses a health meter; once its health reaches zero, it is defeated. Apart from Kracko Jr. and the Meta-Knights, all Mid-Bosses can be inhaled after their defeat and swallowed for a Copy Ability. Unlike regular enemies, most of them are invulnerable to Kirby's sliding move and air pellets.

All Mid-Bosses apart from Kracko Jr. and the Meta-Knights have to be refought in The Arena. In Gourmet Race, no Mid-Bosses appear.
