Dream Friend

Dream Friends are special playable characters which Kirby can recruit in Kirby Star Allies. They are distinct from the normal Friends in that they do not represent any particular Copy Ability, instead having unique movesets.

To obtain them, Kirby must unlock them via Story Mode and/or game update, enter a Dream Palace, and then use the Dream Rod within to call them forth. They can then remain with Kirby indefinitely, only disappearing if they are un-friended or defeated.

Dream Friends are also playable in Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go! where they can be chosen as the primary character, and The Ultimate Choice where they can be chosen as any player. In both of these modes, they must be unlocked by completing the mode once.

List of Dream Friends

Kirby can recruit one Dream Friend each time he visits the Dream Palace. He can also recruit multiples of the same friend.

From Story Mode

These Dream Friends are available in the Story Mode, but two of them need to be unlocked by defeating them as Bosses first:

This trio are notably also the playable characters in Kirby's Return to Dream Land.
