Crane Fever is a Sub-Game in Kirby's Adventure (not in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land). It can be accessed on certain levels by going through the appropriate doorways in the Level hubs.

The objective of the game is to grab Kirby plushies from a crane vendor. The player gets two chances to grab one by holding and releasing the button at the right location; if successful, the crane will drop the plush into the slot. There are two kinds of plushies that can be grabbed. Smaller ones are easy to grab, and worth a 1-Up. Larger ones, which resemble Kirby after inhaling an object, are somewhat harder to grab but worth two 1-Ups. When a plush is successfully dropped, another of the same kind will replace it. Along with Kirby plushies, the machine also holds dolls of Noddy, Waddle Dee, and Waddle Doo, though these cannot be interacted with.

This Sub-Game has three levels of difficulty. Higher levels make the crane faster and harder to control precisely.

The music used in this game is an altered cover of the Vegetable Valley theme when the crane is still, and the Butter Building theme when it is in motion.
