Kirby Super Star Ultra is the Nintendo DS remake of the Super NES title, Kirby Super Star. The remake boasts improved visuals, new Sub-Games, Multiplayer, and tweaks to previous content.[1] Kirby Super Star Ultra uses a corkboard to allow the player to choose which game is played.[2] The 2-Player Adventure can only be played by establishing a wireless connection between two DS systems.[3] Up to four Players can participate in sub-games, only by using Wireless play (multiple cards) or DS Download play (single card).[4] Initially only the Spring Breeze main game is available on the corkboard, but as one progresses through the game, more main and sub games are unlocked.[5]

Gameplay

Kirby Super Star Ultra is a side-scrolling two dimensional platforming game. The difficulty varies with the stage selected, helper used, and level of completion targeted. Kirby begins each stage from a starting point, and his goal is to reach the exit of the stage. Occasionaly, stages are ended with a Boss battle, and few stages are time limited. Other gameplay elements include Kirby's health meter, obstacles along the way (enemies and environmental), unlockables, and health replenishing or power-up foods such as the Maxim Tomato.

Each sub-game's gameplay is unique to itself and, in general, are short and isolated events unrelated to the plots of the other subgames.

The cutscenes and intro/outro reels are presented using 3D graphics. Once unlocked, all can be accessed using the Theater option.

Stages

An early view of the corkboard.

The majority of the stages in Kirby Super Star Ultra are updated versions of the stages in the original game on which it is based, Kirby Super Star. A few, however, are completely new and exclusive to the DS remake. All can be selected from the corkboard menu screen.

Remakes

  • Spring Breeze: An easy introductory stage. King Dedede has Dream Land starved, as he stole all of the food. Kirby ventures through Dream Land until he reaches King Dedede's Castle. After a short battle, Kirby regains all of the food the greedy king took for himself, and redistributes it among the citizens of Dream Land.
  • Dyna Blade: The evidently very vulnerable food supply of Dream Land is at risk once again. Dyna Blade, a giant bird creature, is suspected of terrorizing the local farmers and stealing their crops. Kirby must battle through four more levels, as well as a mini-boss and two hidden areas, before facing off against Dyna Blade. Unlocked When Spring Breeze is completed.
  • The Great Cave Offensive: Kirby, while venturing through Dream Land, accidentally falls down a gigantic hole. The goal of this stage is to escape the cave, collecting treasure along the way. Among these treasures are classic Nintendo-related items, such as the Screw Attack, Captain Falcon's Helmet, and the Triforce. Unlocked when Spring Breeze is completed.
  • Gourmet Race: Kirby and King Dedede face off in a race, picking up as much food as they can along the way. The goal, naturally, is to be the first to cross the finish line, but each food item Kirby picks up is added to his total score at the end of the race. After three races, whoever has the most food wins. Unlocked when Spring Breeze is completed.
  • Revenge of Meta Knight: Meta Knight is attempting to take over Dream Land and rule it himself. Kirby boards the Halberd in an attempt to stop him, destroying parts along the way. Each area of the ship has a time limit, giving the game a sense of urgency. At the end, Kirby and Meta Knight face off against each other, sword to sword, in one of the toughest boss battles thus far. Unlocked when Dyna Blade, Great Cave Offensive, and Gourmet Race are completed.
  • Milky Way Wishes: Kirby is met by Marx, who tells Kirby to go to the stars to the Galactic NOVA, who can grant the wish for the Sun and Moon to stop fighting. Unlocked when Revenge of Meta Knight is completed.
  • The Arena: Set at maximum Difficulty, in this stage, Kirby must fight off 19 Bosses with only 5 Maxim Tomatoes and 5 normal tomatoes to restore his health after battles. Kirby may fight these bosses with the assistance of one helper. Unlocked when Milky Way Wishes is completed.

Exclusives

  • Revenge of the King: This game is a more difficult version of Spring Breeze, showing that Dedede failed to give up against Kirby. Unlocked when Milky Way Wishes is completed.
  • Meta Knightmare Ultra: Spring Breeze, Dyna Blade, The Great Cave Offensive, Revenge of Meta Knight, and Milky Way Wishes revisited as Meta Knight instead of Kirby. Unlocked when Revenge of the King is completed.
  • Helper to Hero: Similar to the True Arena, a helper (or two) battles bosses. Unlocked when Revenge of the King and Meta Knightmare Ultra are completed.
  • The True Arena: Similar to the Arena, but instead battles 10 harder bosses, and only five normal tomatoes. Unlocked when the Arena, Helper to Hero, Revenge of the King, and Meta Knightmare Ultra are completed.

Sub-Games

  • Megaton Punch: This one-button sub-game from the original puts Kirby against one of three enemies: Waddle Dee, Knuckle Joe, and Iron Mam, to see who can break the most blocks with their punch.
  • Samurai Kirby: Another one-button nostalgic sub-game. Ninja Kirby faces off against an enemy and a button must be pressed when a "!" appears on-screen. If the enemy attacks before a button is pressed, Kirby is defeated. The enemies are always Waddle Doo, Wheelie, Chef Kawasaki, King Dedede, and Meta Knight.
  • Kirby Card Swipe: A brand new sub-game that is similar to Samurai Kirby. Multiple cards with pictures of enemies on them appear on the bottom screen, and one of them appears on the top screen. The card that matches the card on the top must be tapped to win, and this must be completed three times. This mode is available in multiplayer with only one game card.
  • Kirby on the Draw: This simple western-styled game makes Kirby shoot targets that have pictures of his enemies. This mode is available in multiplayer with only one game card.
  • Snack Tracks: In this sub-game, Kirby is on a conveyor belt covered in food, bugs, bombs and rocks. the player should tap obstacles, but not food. This mode is available in multiplayer with only one game card.

Name Appearance Helper In-game Description Notes
Kirby NormalPunk Ultra.png None Inhale foes and spit to KO them! Or swallow to copy their abilities and adventure with a Helper! Pink Kirby is Player 1 and in multiplayer, Player 2 controls a Yellow Kirby.
Beam BeamSSU.png Waddle Doo Flail this beam like a whip. It has many useful attacks. Try to store up a super shot! None

Cook CookingPunk Ultra.png None (1-use only) What's on today's menu? Put all your foes in the pot and stew them to perfection! This one-use ability turns all normal enemies on-screen into food. The only drawback is that it is powerless against mid-bosses or bosses.
Copy CopySSU.png Tac Use a strange light to analyze and then copy foes' abilities. Might you learn weird ones? Since Kirby can inhale most enemies and copy them, this ability is useless unless used in Milky Way Wishes or when copying Scarfy.
Crash CrashSSU.png None (1-use only) KO all foes with a big BOOM! But be careful. This ultimate weapon has only 1 charge. This ability comes only from Bomber, unless Kirby has the Copy Ability when a Scarfy is nearby.
Cutter CuttingPunk Ultra.png Sir Kibble Throw a boomerang all over! Slash! Jab! Strike! You can even cut ropes! Cutter is one of two abilities (the other being Sword) that can cut ropes.
Fighter FighterSSU.png Knuckle Joe Hi-yaa! Hold the B Button longer for a stronger blow! That punch is an instant KO! Fighter Kirby appears in the opening sequence of the Arena.

Ice IceSSU.png Chilly Freeze foes with icy breath! Kick ice cubes into others! When you dash you skate! This ability allows Kirby to freeze enemies in an ice cube and then kick the ice cube, potentially hitting other enemies with it.
Jet JettingPunk Ultra.png Capsule J2 Strap jet power to your back! Hold the B Button to charge, then let go to hit Mach 5! Like plasma, charging this ability up makes it more powerful, although Jet is charged with the B button instead of the D-pad. It can be used to light fuses.
Mike MicSSU.png None (3-use only) Owowow! Ooh, yeah-ah! Yabba jabba yeah yeah yeah! Sing 3 times to silence all... Acts similar to crash, but can be used three times, each time more powerful than the last.

Ninja PurpleNinja Ultra.png Bio Spark Hide in shadows and darkness. Use ninja skills on your mission. You're a ninja! A NINJA! Cool... Ninja Kirby can cut ropes.
Paint PaintSSU.png None (1 use only) Now's your chance to use it! A special onetime Copy Ability! Paint the town all of 7 colors! This rare ability can be found only in the boss battles of Chameleo Arm, Heavy Lobster, and Marx Soul, and has different effects depending on what boss it's used on.

Stone RockyBrownie Ultra.png Rocky Pound! Pound! CRUSH! Change into many heavy forms. When on a slope, you'll sliiiiide. If the player presses the B button, Kirby can turn into a stone, leaving him invincible. He can turn back to normal with another tap of B.
Suplex SuplexSSU.png Bugzzy This burns with fighting spirit! Grab foes and throw 'em! Learn all 8 throws to be a champ! To attack, Kirby has to grab an enemy and toss it into another, or kick one from above.
Sword SwordkSSU.png Blade Knight You wield the king of blades! At full health, you shoot beams! Show your sword mastery! Sword Kirby can cut ropes and use his sword underwater.
Wheelie Rider RidingPunk Ultra.png Wheelie Hop on your bike, Wheelie Rider! Go for a drive with a friend. Use teamwork to roll ahead! This ability is unique, as it requires Kirby to jump on a helper Wheelie. The two can roll around together, and after he dismounts, Kirby keeps his ability he had when he got on Wheelie.
Wheel WheelingPunk Ultra.png Wheelie Roll to be nearly invincible or ride a Wheel Helper! Beware thorns and holes. Wheel Kirby transforms completely into a Wheel, like Stone Kirby transforms into a stone.

If he is a short distance away, she will throw her fist in his direction. If he is far away, she marches across the screen, punching the ground. 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png
Jukid JukidSSU.png Suplex 130 A martial artist who, like Bugzzy, tries to grab and throw Kirby, which is why he gives out the Suplex ability. Jukid also attacks by shoots blasts of energy which, strangely, can be swallowed and shot back at Jukid. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png
Kracko Jr. KrackojrSSU.png None 128 It is debatable whether this weak form of Kracko is a boss or mid-boss, since he is fought in the Arena by himself but there is no other mid-bosses in the level he appears in, Bubbly Clouds. Kracko Jr. attacks mainly just by moving around the screen, trying to collide with Kirby. He also can make Waddle Doos or bombs, a trait that the elder Kracko lacks. 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png
Kracko Jr.'s Revenge KrackojrrevengeSSU.png None Unknown A darker, creepier Kracko Jr. with a red eye and brownish clouds. His attacks are more powerful than normal Kracko Jr. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png
Meta-Knights AxSSU.png
JavelinSSU.png
MaceSSU.png
TridentSSU.png
None Varies Four knights with various weapons- Ax Knight, Javelin Knight, Mace Knight, and Trident Knight. Kirby needs to defeat each one separately to defeat the mid-boss. They each can be inhaled like normal enemies (but it takes longer to inhale them), and they even appear as normal enemies sometimes. 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png
Meta-KnightsAx Knight AxSSU.png None 64 One of the Meta-Knights that looks like a skull with a viking helmet. Axe Knight chops at Kirby if he is nearby, or throws his axe like a boomerang. Surprisingly, he doesn't give Kirby the cutter ability. 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png
Meta-KnightsJavelin Knight JavelinSSU.png None 46 An octopus-like robot that flies around and shoots lasers at Kirby. He doesn't give Kirby the beam ability as one might expect. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png
Meta-KnightsMace Knight MaceSSU.png None 84 Another Meta-knight. Swings a mace around while walking or stands in place and throws his mace at Kirby. 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png
Meta-KnightsTrident Knight TridentSSU.png None 64 A jet pack-wearing Meta-knight who throws an infinite amount of tridents at Kirby. 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png
Mr. Frosty MrfrostySSU.png Ice 110 A walrus wearing overalls who throw ice blocks, swallows and freezes Kirby, or just runs around with its mouth open. 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png
Mr. Tick Tock MrticktockSSU.png Mike 196 A walking clock with a large mustache. Attacks by shooting musical notes or ringing and creating a force field around himself. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png
Phan Phan KSSU Phan Phan.png Suplex 208 Phan Phan is an elephant with two legs and big eyes. He rolls around, throws apples, and grabs Kirby with his trunk and throws him around. His apples can be spat back at him. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png
Poppy Bro. Sr. PoppysrSSU.png Bomb 80 The jumping larger version of Poppy Bro. Jr. Hops all over the stage and throws bombs, which can be shot right back at him. 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png
Waddle Dee MidbossdeeSSU.png None 245 A mid-boss that appeared in the Arena in Kirby Super Star and also appears in Revenge of the King. In the original, he is a normal Waddle Dee that walks in place and doesn't actually move. In Super Star Ultra, he now sports a blue bandana and walks around. Kirby can inhale him to quickly defeat him. This is suggested since he has a huge amount of HP. Bandana Waddle Dee appears in the audience during Masked Dedede's battle He is also the only character that King Dedede converses with, much like how Meta Knight talks with his crew in Revenge of Meta Knight. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png

Bosses

Enemy bosses are tougher foes that are fought at the end of levels in most modes. In the Arena, Helper to Hero, and the True Arena, a large amount of bosses must be fought in a row. (TA=The Arena, HtH=Helper to Hero, and TTA=The True Arena).

Chameleo Arm ChameleoarmSSU.png Paint A chameleon who can eat Kirby, grab onto walls with its long arms, turn invisible, and shoot orbs from its mouth that can be eaten to get the Paint ability. It is one of the few bosses to give the paint ability, the others being Heavy Lobster and Marx Soul. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png
Computer Virus ComputervirusSSU.png Various This unique boss makes Kirby battle three enemies in an RPG-like (turn-based) battle. When it is the enemy's turn to attack, it sits in a box invincible. When it is Kirby's turn, the enemy falls to the ground and is helpless against his attacks. In The Great Cave Offensive, Kirby fights a Slime, Puppet, and Wizard. In later battles, he fights a Wizard, an Evil Knight, and a Great Dragon. During battle, Copy Pedestals can appear on the sides of the screen for Kirby to pick up. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png

Fatty Whale FattywhaleSSU.png Stone Fatty Whale jumps and floats across the stage in an attempt to hit Kirby, and can make a waterfall come out of his blowhole, making rocks (which give Stone ability) and Blippers fall down. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png
Galacta Knight GalactaknightSSU.png None This legendary warrior attacks in a similar manner to Meta Knight, creating tornadoes, beams, and more with the power of his lance and shield. He can also do unique moves, such as creating flames from the ground or calling in dark Meta-Knights. He is the final boss of Meta Knightmare Ultra. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png
Heavy Lobster HeavylobsterSSU.png Paint A metal crustacean that shoots flames, mini-lobsters, and paint blobs from its claws, as well as being able to walk, run and dash. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png
Kabula KabulaSSU.png None King Dedede's blimp that is fought while in Kirby's Starship. She fires Gordos, cannonballs, and Bullet Bill-like projectiles, as well as barrel-rolling towards Kirby. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png
King Dedede KingdededeSSU.png None The king of Dream Land fights mainly with his hammer, but also will try to inhale, body-slam, or jump on Kirby. In Revenge of the King, he is fought in his more powerful form Masked Dedede. 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png
Kracko KrackoSSU.png Beam A cloud with one eye. He attacks by firing lightning towards the ground near Kirby, swinging two beams of lightning around him, swooping across the stage, and creating Waddle Doos. 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png
Kracko's Revenge KrackorevengeSSU.png Beam A stronger (and more intimidating) version of Kracko. He shares lightning and swooping attacks with his weaker cousin, and can also create Waddle Doos, but his attacks have a wider range. He can also fly towards the center of the screen and shoot large bolts in all 8 directions. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png
Lololo & Lalala LolaSSU.png None The pink-and-blue duo from the Eggerland series returns as a boss. They cannot attack themselves, and instead come out of one of six doors to push a box, which can be inhaled to be used as ammo. Sometimes Gordo comes out of a door. Each of them has separate health. 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png
Lololo & Lalala's Revenge LolarevengeSSU.png None These two are now purple and orange, and their room has eight doors. Gordo appears more often, and the two move faster. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png
Main Cannon #2 Maincannon2SSU.png Bomb A large cannon originally known as the Combo Cannon. It has three parts- a large cannon that aims and fires cannonballs, a robotic arm that can drop bombs or grab Kirby, and a laser gun near the bottom that can cover the whole floor with a dangerous beam of light. The robotic arm can be temporarily destroyed, the laser gun takes a while, but can be destroyed, and the only one that has actual health is the cannon itself. Helpers often attack the laser gun, which makes the battle easier once destroyed but doesn't get you closer to beating the boss. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png
Marx MarxSSU.png Cutter, Ice The demon Marx is the final boss of the original, but now Marx Soul is fought at the end of the game. He attacks with many bizarre attacks, such as shooting a white laser out of his mouth, splitting in two to create a black hole, and teleporting to random spots on-screen. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png
Marx Soul MarxsoulSSU.png Cutter, Ice, Paint The final boss who appears only in the True Arena. He is Marx's soul after absorbing the power of the Galactic NOVA. He has a much creeper demeanor, especially his laugh, and his attacks are even more strange, such as splitting into two large blobs of paint that move across the screen. Marx Soul provides the paint ability, although it has no special effect on him other than making him lose some health. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png
Masked Dedede MaskeddededeSSU.png Hammer King Dedede wearing a mask and using his "new Dedede Hammer", which is mechanical. His attacks have a larger range, and he has some new attacks regarding his powerful hammer, such as spinning around and targeting Kirby for a period of time or shooting missles and flames from the front of his hammer. He provides Kirby with a hammer of his own at the start of the fight. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png
Meta Knight MetaknightSSU.png Sword In the beginning of battle, Meta Knight sits on a platform with his cape over his face. After Kirby grabs the sword given to him, or takes too long to do so, Meta Knight jumps down and starts attacking with various sword and tornado attacks. After his defeat, his mask breaks and he escapes from the room. In Revenge of Meta Knight, he chases Kirby off of the Halberd. In Meta Knightmare Ultra, Meta Knight is a movable protagonist, and plays similar to a combination of Sword and Wing Kirby. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png
Reactor Reactor.png None The main reactor of the Halberd that is nearly invincible. The only thing that can hurt it is to make one of its lasers reflect back its main crystal. It attacks with flames from the ground and a small cannon that doesn't target Kirby. Like Main Cannon #2's laser gun, this cannon can be destroyed, but it doesn't hurt the reactor. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png
Twin Woods TwinwoodsSSU.png None Two Whispy Woods that face each other. They both blow air, and can drop apples, bugs and Gordos together. They can also, strangely, trade parts of themselves with each other. Each of them must be defeated separately. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png
Wham Bam Jewel WhambamjewelSSU.png Stone, Bomb The "Wham Bam King" with three eyes, a crown, and diamond hands. He attacks like Wham Bam Rock, punching and slapping with his hands, as well as shooting bullets from his hands and dropping bombs, which look like his face. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png
Wham Bam Rock WhambamrockSSU.png Stone Wham Bam Rock's appearance changed drastically from Kirby Super Star. He still has pounding, slapping, and grabbing attacks, but looks more like a rock and less cartoon-like. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 1Yescheck.png
Whispy Woods WhispySSU.png None A true icon of the Kirby series that attacks simply by puffing small air pellets or dropping apples. 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png
Whispy's Revenge WhispyrevengeSSU.png None Whispy Woods sporting purple leaves and dropping Gordos and large bugs, as well as blowing tornadoes instead of just puffs of air. 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png 3Xmark.png 1Yescheck.png
