Kirby Super Star (Ultra)
In Kirby Super Star and its remake, Dyna Blade has a main game named after her. In this game, Dyna Blade disrupts the crops by slicing them down using her wings, then making off with the harvest. After Kirby discovers this, he sets off to retrieve the stolen goods. Surprisingly, it turns out that Dyna Blade stole the food only to feed her chicks, as opposed to King Dedede's more gluttonous reasons. After Kirby helps rear her chicks, Dyna Blade befriends him, and aids him in Revenge of Meta Knight.
Dyna Blade is fought in the last stage of the Dyna Blade game, reachable after the Candy Mountain stage is cleared. She fights by swooping in from the background, striking with her beak, and attempting to grab Kirby with her talons. She can be defeated using the Recoil Stars that drop whenever she swoops near the ground or lands.
Dyna Blade is also fought in The Arena as one of the first set of randomly-fought bosses.
Kirby Air Ride
Dyna Blade appears in one event in City Trial mode of Kirby Air Ride. During this event, Dyna Blade will fly in and land in a pre-determined though randomly selected location within the city, with her size being comparable to the larger buildings. She will harm any racers who touch her, but can be attacked by flying into her head, which will cause her to drop items of various value, usually Patches or Food.
Dyna Blade will fly off and land in one other location given enough time. After being damaged sufficiently or a short time after her second landing, she will fly off and the event will end.
The Checklist for the game incorrectly refers to Dyna Blade as a male.

- Main article: Dyna Blade's Nest (Kirby Fighters Deluxe)
In the Sub-Game spin-off Kirby Fighters Deluxe, Dyna Blade appears on a stage themed after her nest and attacks the combatant Kirbys with similar moves to her appearance in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra. Instead of being rendered in 3-D, her appearance is directly taken from her in-game sprite from Kirby Super Star Ultra.

Role in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!
|In days of old, there dwelt in the land of the Cappies a giant bird. It had wings that shone like the Sun, a steely beak, and claws as sharp as swords. This wondrous creature - known to all as Dyna Blade - could streak through the sky like lightning.|
— Professor Curio describing Dyna Blade in Kirby's Egg-Cellent Adventure
Unlike most characters, she makes almost every appearance in 3D, with her specific character model being updated in later episodes. Dyna Blade is shown to be a legendary bird with metal wings and feathers, which explains why "blade" is in her name. She is said to be seen every 100 years. Unlike many other characters in the show, Dyna Blade does not have any speaking roles, though she is still fairly intelligent.
In her first appearance, King Dedede tricks Kirby into eating Dyna Blade's egg, which causes her to wreak havoc upon Cappy Town. However, it is found that Dyna Blade's chick had already hatched, and she forgives Kirby. After that, she is rarely seen outside of small roles or cameo appearances, and the only other episode which features her prominently is The Empty Nest Mess.
