100% completion is a term referring to the act of completing every objective in a game or activity, whether they be required for normal (any%) completion, or optional side-objectives. This designation may be formal or informal, and in the former case, may not actually require performing every task the game offers (an example being playing the Sub-Games in certain Kirby titles). Aiming for 100% completion is often regarded as more difficult than completing with a lower percentage, though the process can also result in collecting bonus items such as Vitality hearts which make the game easier.
Most titles in the main Kirby series have some sort of indicator of the player's progress toward 100% completion, which may be a percentage in of itself, and may also bestow an honorary title or emblem onto the player's save file depending on this percentage. Titles that track percentage also typically give the player a reward of some sort should the 100% mark be reached.
The following is a list of each rank title the player is given, and at what percentage:
- 1% - 9% -> Water Drop
- 10% - 19% -> Son of Wind
- 20% - 29% -> Li'l Traveller
- 30% - 39% -> Swift Hunter
- 40% - 49% -> Star Herald
- 50% - 59% -> Dream Hunter
- 60% - 69% -> Dream Warrior
- 70% - 79% -> Star General
- 80% - 89% -> Great Ace
- 90% - 99% -> Final Star
- 100% -> Hero of Lore
- 100% + Extra Game cleared -> Super Star
