— Collection Lists description of Crazy Theater.
Crazy Theater is one of the ten Battle types in Kirby Battle Royale. It places its contestants in an arena that continuously changes form, and tasks them with completing several mini-games, one after the other.
Rules and gameplay
This battle mode is split into several smaller mini games. Each game is separated by a curtain change, where the task is given to the contestants. Once the curtain opens, contestants must then seek to fulfill the requirement while preventing their opponents from doing the same. Once the timer is up, contestants who did the task correctly are awarded a point. The first solo contestant to earn five points - or team to earn ten points - is the winner.
Like most other battle modes, contestants have Health, and can be knocked out of a mini-game if hit enough times. Contestants' stamina is restored at the beginning of each round.
The stage in which the games take place is called the Dream Theater, which feature Waddle Dees and a Waddle Doo in the audience, all holding glow-sticks. Possible mini games are as follows:
|Mini Games in Crazy Theater|
|Stand on the answer!||Contestants are presented with a simple addition or subtraction problem, and must then stand on a panel that represents the correct answer. When time is up, points will be awarded only to those standing on the correct panel.
An alternate version of this game places a random number of Apples on the floor, and asks contestants to stand on the panel that correctly represents the number of apples. Watermelon slices are also on the floor, to make things a little more confusing.
|Attack your rivals!||Contestants must hit one of their opponents with any attack. Failing to hit an opponent or getting KO'd will result in no point given.|
|Use B charge-ups on rivals!||Contestants must hit an opponent with their B charge-up move. Failing to hit an opponent or getting KO'd will result in no point given.|
|Strike with B charge-up!||A target on a propeller falls into the arena. Contestants must hit this target with a B charge-up move to get a point. When a target is destroyed, another will appear. Failing to hit a target or getting KO'd will result in no point given.|
|Dodge attacks!||Contestants must avoid getting hit by rivals. Those who succeed in the time allotted get a point.|
|Carry 3 apples!||Several Apples are scattered throughout the room. To get a point, contestants must hold three in a stack at some point in the game, and not get KO'd.|
|Carry 1 apple!||A single Apple is placed in the middle of a small room. Contestants must hold it at some point and not get KO'd to get a point.|
|Dodge the shocks!||Contestants must avoid continuous currents of lightning produced by Kracko which move about the stage. Getting hit by a shock is an instant KO. Points are awarded to those still standing at the end.|
|Dodge the asteroids!||Several asteroids plummet down to the stage from above. Getting hit by an asteroid is an instant KO. Points are awarded to those still standing at the end.|
|Avoid the blast!||A large Time Bomb appears in the stage, which can be picked up and thrown as it counts down. When it explodes, any contestants in a large area around it will be KO'd. Those still standing afterward get a point.|
