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.
To reach 100% in this game, the player must complete the main game and press all of the Big Switches. Doing so will unlock the Extra Game. Completing the Extra Game does not affect the save file percentage, but the player's rank title will change and the Sound Test will be unlocked.
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
Kirby's Dream Course
There is no in-game tracker of completion in Kirby's Dream Course, but a variety of menu options are made available as the player progresses through the game. An informal 100% could involve collecting gold medals on all single player courses in both the Main Game and Extra Game.
Kirby's Dream Land 2
Upon reaching 100%, the player is awarded with some extra game options on their file. The Sound Test and Boss Endurance modes are unlocked. In addition, all of the Bonus Chances can be played in sequence.
The following are the percentage gains toward 100% Completion for each task in Kirby's Dream Land 2:
|Kirby's Dream Land 2 percentage gains|
|Complete stages||2% per stage (31 in total)||62%|
|Defeat Bosses||2% per Boss (7 in total)||14%|

Kirby Super Star
To reach 100% completion in Kirby Super Star, all the main games must be completed, with both secret areas unlocked in Dyna Blade (Kirby does not need to visit them — just unlocking them is enough), all 60 Treasures collected in The Great Cave Offensive, and all 19 Copy Essence Deluxe pedestals collected in Milky Way Wishes. From there, The Arena must also be completed.
Completing the Arena grants access to the Sound Test.
Kirby's Star Stacker (Game Boy)
There is no formal percentage gauge for Kirby's Star Stacker for Game Boy, but if all difficulties of Round Clear are completed and Insane difficulty is unlocked in the Challenge and Time Attack modes, Kirby will be given a crown and Star Rod on the title screen.
Kirby's Star Stacker (SNES)
- Defeat Gryll in the Story Mode.
- Complete Round Clear on "Insane" difficulty.
- Stack 2000 or more stars in the Challenge mode on any difficulty.
- Stack 200 stars or more in a Time Attack round on any difficulty.

Kirby's Dream Land 3
The Sound Test is unlocked after defeating King Dedede, regardless of which ending is obtained.
To reach 97% completion, all Heart Stars must be collected, and the game completed with them, which in turn unlocks MG-5.
The final 1% is awarded after finishing a game of Jumping (unlocked after beating MG-5) with a score of 10 or above. Doing so will unlock a ? option in the OPTION menu, which lets the player watch all cutscenes in the game, either separately or one after another.
Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards
To make the save file display 100% completion, every Crystal Shard must be collected, and the game completed. This unlocks the Boss Battles mode and the option to view all the scenes from the game one after another on the Theater.
While every difficulty of 100-Yard Hop, Bumper Crop Bump and Checkerboard Chase can be unlocked and beaten, all of the Enemy Info Cards can be collected, and the Boss Battles mode can be beaten, none of these feats have any influence on the 100% meter.
There is a cheat code that will create a 100% completed game in File 3, as well as grant the player all of the Enemy Info Cards. To activate it, File 2 must be blank, while File 3 must be created with no progress. Then, while the HAL Laboratory logo is displayed during the game startup sequence, the player should insert the P2 controller, hold L, and press the buttons C-up, C-up, R, C-right, C-left, and Start in that order. The 1-UP jingle will play to indicate that the code was input correctly, and File 3 will be marked 100% complete. Because no C-button inputs are mapped anywhere on the Wii Virtual Console or in Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition, this cheat code cannot be performed in those versions.
Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble
To reach 100% completion, the game must be completed after collecting all 32 Red Stars in both the normal mode and the Extra Stage. Doing this will change the background color of the title screen to pink.
Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land
To reach 100% completion, both the Main Game and Extra Game must be completed with every Big Switch pressed. Meta Knightmare does not have to be completed, but can be considered an informal goal after clearing the game.

Reaching 100% will reward the player with the Kirby Master video in the theater, and beating The True Arena regardless of clear percent will reward the player with the Special Edition Blooper Reel video. Completing Helper to Hero with all Helpers is not necessary for 100% completion, but doing so will reward the player with a special acknowledgement and unlock the cutscenes from the original Kirby Super Star in the theater.
|Kirby Super Star Ultra percentage gains|
