Cameo characters are those which make an appearance in the Kirby series of video games, but who originate from outside the Kirby series proper. Usually, these are other video game characters from Nintendo.

List of cameo characters by game[edit]

The following list covers all cameo characters by game. It should be noted that on many occasions, characters from within the Kirby series will cameo on other games (famously the Animal Friends Rick, Kine, and Coo), but these appearances will not be mentioned here. Additionally, this list will include direct references to characters outside the Kirby series, but only to those referenced by name or direct likeness (as such, Copy Abilities like Sword and ESP will not be mentioned here). For a list of more indirect references, see this page. Lastly, recoverable items such as the Treasures in The Great Cave Offensive will not be listed here.
