This article is about the game. For the titular band of characters, see Squeaks.
This article is about the game known in British English as Kirby: Mouse Attack, and should not be confused with the similarly-named Kirby Mass Attack.

Kirby: Squeak Squad (known as Kirby: Mouse Attack in British English) is a game for the Nintendo DS released in 2006, developed by Flagship and Natsume, and published by HAL Laboratory and Nintendo. Unlike the preceding Kirby game, Kirby: Canvas Curse, it is controlled using the four face buttons rather than the touch screen. It has a special feature in it, like most DS Kirby games, called bubbles. It has a main story mode and four Sub-Games, with one of them being hidden at the beginning. Another feature is the Collection Room, where the player can change Kirby's color, listen to music, and view collected items.


A scene of Kirby about to eat his cake
Quote1.png Early afternoon in Dream Land,

It's so peaceful even the clouds are drowsy.
And now it's Kirby's favorite time of the day - snack time.
Today's yummy snack is a sweet, fluffy slice of strawberry shortcake!
Time to dig in...
WHOA! The cake Kirby was about to eat has suddenly vanished!
That scrumptious, berry-topped slice of mouth-watering goodness...
No doubt about it! This must be the work of that greedy King Dedede!
Well, there's no time to waste! Gotta get that cake back!
And that's how Kirby's latest fantastic adventure begins...''

— Full intro cutscene text.

The game starts with Kirby about to devour his precious Strawberry Shortcake during a peaceful afternoon at Dream Land. Just as he is about to eat it, Kirby's Cake suddenly disappears, which prompts the Pink Puffball to head to Castle Dedede, thinking the castle's greedy owner stole it. Once Kirby defeats King Dedede in the first world, he discovers that King Dedede is not behind the stolen cake. Soon, the Squeaks, a gang of space thieves, arrive and steal a chest that presumably contained the Shortcake. While they are trying to escape, King Dedede grabs Kirby and throws him into the Squeaks. This causes Kirby to tumble into a large pit, leading to Nature Notch, the game's second level.

Meta Knight steals the treasure chest.

After Kirby has defeated the bosses through each world, he confronts Daroach in Ice Island. Right after Kirby defeats Daroach, Meta Knight arrives and steals the treasure chest that Kirby is about to take. Kirby decides to follow Meta Knight to Secret Sea, but he can fight Meta Knight only if he collects the five-star keys from glowing big treasure chests. Soon, after Kirby defeats Meta Knight inside the Halberd, Daroach reappears and takes the chest for himself again. However, when Daroach opens the chest, a dark force takes over his body and turns him into Dark Daroach, a darker version of himself. He escapes to Gamble Galaxy, forcing Kirby to follow him to stop the new threat.

After defeating Dark Daroach, Kirby notices that Daroach had been possessed by a small dark star. As the star flies away, Kirby grabs the Triple Star Cane that Daroach dropped and follows the star through the final stage. Arriving at the limits of Gamble Galaxy, the star starts to form a body, which becomes Dark Nebula, the lord of the underworld. During the fight against it, Dark Nebula takes on three forms to perform a variety of attacks: Fire, Ice, and electricity. In the end, Kirby triumphs over Dark Nebula and later learns that Meta Knight had stolen the treasure chest earlier in order to prevent the release of Dark Nebula. After the Squeaks have realized how much trouble they have caused, they leave and offer Kirby a Strawberry Shortcake as an apology for their mischief.


Fire Kirby dashing in Prism Plains - Stage 1

Kirby: Squeak Squad plays like a traditional Kirby sidescroller, where Kirby can inhale and swallow enemies to gain their Copy Ability, but now each one is upgradable by finding Ability Scrolls hidden throughout the game in treasure chests. The game introduces five new abilities: Animal, Ghost, Metal (which bears resemblance to the absent Stone ability), Bubble, and Triple Star. Certain abilities can also directly affect the environment, such as using the Fire ability to burn down grass or using the Ice ability to freeze bodies of water.

Ability Scrolls can now be found in levels to upgrade abilities (such as being able to charge the Laser or increasing Beam's power). Another new addition to the franchise is the bubble. These bubbles contain Food, Copy Abilities, stars, and Kirby Bubbles, all of which can be combined. Combining three Kirby Bubbles will result in an extra life, combining two small food items will create a larger food item, and combining three stars will result in a larger and stronger Star Bullet for Kirby to spit at enemies. Typically, combining two ability bubbles will result in a random ability. However, after the player obtains the required scrolls, the Sword or Bomb ability can be mixed with Fire (only with Sword), Ice, or Spark to create a new ability.

There are treasure chests hidden in each level which contain unlockable items such music tracks for the Sound Player, Spray Paint cans to change Kirby's color, jigsaw puzzle pieces put together to create Graphics, the aforementioned Ability Scrolls, Vitalities to increase Kirby's maximum health, among other items.

The mini versions can be used as projectiles. If Kirby comes too close to the mid-boss, the mid-boss grabs him and waits until a mini version collides with Kirby. Then, the boss throws Kirby, damaging him.

The Squeaks[edit]

Main article: Squeaks

If Kirby obtains a big treasure chest, the Squeaks appear. They can take the treasure chest and then go to their hideout. If Kirby does not enter their base in time, it closes down.

Kirby can fight the Squeaks in or out of their hideout. The Squeaks flinch from all attacks, but attacking them with fire, ice, and electric attacks add an elemental effect. When they are attacked, they may release food. When they are brought down, Kirby can continue attacking them to make them release more food, but they do not receive damage. However, when they are in the base, they can go into an angry state after they have been brought down once. When they are in an angry state, they cannot flinch.

The Squeakers act like normal enemies. However, when they are defeated, they may release food. They are also capable of taking treasure chests, especially when no other Squeaks are around.

If Kirby enters their base with no Squeaks present, the inside may be a room containing a few items or some Squeakers. However, once he exits outside the base, they reappear.

Name Appearance Description
Blue Squeakers Blue Squeakers.png Blue Squeakers throw bombs, like the Green Squeakers, but their bombs are much bigger.
Green Squeakers Green Squeakers.png Green Squeakers throw normal-sized bombs.
Yellow Squeakers Yellow Squeakers.png Yellow Squeakers do not attack other than jumping.
Doc Doc Squeak Squad.png The smartest of the gang, Doc rides in a U.F.O., making him the only flying Squeak to be fought. His attacks involve his U.F.O. His U.F.O can shoot lasers and drop bombs. However, he has the lowest HP of all the mini-bosses. He is also the only Squeak aside from Daroach to be fought as a boss twice.
Spinni Spinni Sprite SS.png Spinni is the most agile of the Squeaks. Unlike the other Squeaks, he can swim and jump multiple times. Usually, when Kirby is against Spinni, it involves a race to get the chest first. Spinni can swipe at Kirby with his claw or throw a ninja star. When he is stunned, his claw can be dropped, which gives Kirby the Animal ability if swallowed. His ninja stars can also give Kirby the Ninja ability.
Storo Storo Fat SS.png Storo is the strongest of the Squeaks, giving him the most HP and the strongest attacks. However, he is big and slow, making him easily flinched. His attacks involve pounding with a hammer or slamming to the ground with his body. Both attacks produce stars, which can be inhaled and thrown at Storo.


Kirby: Squeak Squad's bosses, unlike in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror are fought in order, at the end of each level. Before each boss fight, Kirby can receive an ability bubble or another item in a bubble for the fight. Unlike mid-bosses, bosses do not yield an ability upon defeat. After Kirby defeats the boss, a large treasure chest appears. Inside it, Kirby can receive a boss medal. If Kirby collects all boss medals, he can play the sub-game, Boss Endurance.

Name Appearance Location Description
King Dedede King Dedede Squeak Squad sprite.png Prism Plains King Dedede is the first boss Kirby has to fight. Unlike the next bosses, King Dedede flinches from each hit, stopping his actions. King Dedede can jump and fly, attempting to run into Kirby. He can also use his hammer to hit Kirby as well. Like in the previous games, King Dedede sports the ability to inhale and spit out Kirby.
Mrs. Moley Mrs Moley SS.png Nature Notch Mrs. Moley is a large, gray mole that apparently bears relations to Moley, the other large gray mole. She sports similar attacks to Moley, such as throwing objects at Kirby. However, there are two holes where she emerges. She can also appear in the background. Once she is in the background, after some time, the glasses in her eyes may shine, and then she makes a big leap. A big shadow appears under Kirby, and Kirby has to dodge Mrs. Moley's body. If her body touches the hard ground, she is stunned for a while. If her body touches one of the two dirt patches, she digs in and resumes her attacks.
Mecha-Kracko Mecha Kracko Squeak.png Cushy Cloud This boss fights very similarly to Kracko. Like Kracko, it can move around to hit Kirby or disperse enemies for Kirby to use as an ability or a projectile. However, after the first set of HP is depleted, Doc is revealed controlling the machine. Then, Mecha-Kracko removes the original stage while Kirby has to keep flying. Mecha-Kracko replaces the stage with a new one, but with gaps, or a smaller one. Then, it can use new attacks, which can let it surround in electricity or attack below it with electricity.
Yadgaine Yadogaine sprite.png Jam Jungle This is the second boss that Doc pilots. Kirby is on a moving screen when fighting this boss. Yadgaine can dig into the ground, throwing out rock fragments that Kirby should dodge. It can also shoot a laser from its mouth. Meanwhile, falling rocks can hurt Kirby, but Kirby can use these rocks to attack Yadgaine if he lacks a Copy Ability. After repeated hits, Yadgaine's claws can break, hindering its ability to dig. When both of its claws are broken, it cannot dig anymore. The final part that breaks is its mouth before it gets destroyed.
Bohboh Bohboh SS.png Vocal Volcano Bohboh is a fiery owl-like creature with a tanooki tail. It first appears by flying in the background. One of its attacks includes flying around and dropping fireballs which can be used as projectiles. It can also attempt to grab Kirby by charging at him. If it grabs Kirby, it throws Kirby to the lava, hurting Kirby and instantly removing his Copy Ability (due to the lava). If it misses and hits the ground, it is stunned while rocks fall. The rocks can be a hazard, but Kirby can also use these to attack Bohboh. After this, Bohboh flies slowly with its eyes closed, also vulnerable to attack, until its eyes open.
Daroach Daroach Roach SS.png Ice Island Daroach is the leader of the Squeaks. He performs multiple attacks, one of which include using the Triple Star Cane to throw stars and shooting an ice beam that can hurt or freeze Kirby, respectively. He can also throw bombs at Kirby, but it is also projectile that Kirby can inhale and spit out as a Star Bullet to him. . During the boss fight, Daroach can teleport multiple times to avoid getting hit.
Meta Knight KNiDL Meta Knight sprite.png Secret Sea Meta Knight fights like from his previous battles. He can jump from place to place and defend some of Kirby's attacks. His primary form of attacks involves using his Galaxia. His attacks produce Recoil Stars that Kirby can use to hit Meta Knight. He can also create a whirlwind that spans almost throughout the screen that can sweep Kirby and damage him. Meta Knight also has new attacks involving the fire and electric elements. Meta Knight can create an electric field or he can shoot fire blasts with his sword.
Dark Daroach Dark Daroach KSqS sprite.png Gamble Galaxy Dark Daroach is a similar boss fight to Daroach, but he has more powerful attacks. His bombs, which are much larger, create fire pillars when they explode. His ice beam is also larger, while it can still give out Recoil Stars for Kirby to inhale and spit out back at him. The only attack that remains relatively unchanged is the star-throwing attack with his Triple Star Cane.
Dark Nebula DarkZtar N.png
DarkZtar F.png
DarkZtar I.png
DarkZtar E.png
Gamble Galaxy Dark Nebula is the final boss in this game. Before fighting it, Kirby must follow a small black star in a stage. At the end, the small black star grows and receives an eye, which forms Dark Nebula. At the beginning of the boss fight, Dark Nebula changes into one of the three forms. All forms share attacks that involve shooting stars that inflict an effect of damage depending on Dark Nebula's current form.
  • Fire Form: Dark Nebula can move around in certain erratic angles to run into Kirby. Dark Nebula can also release a giant fireball that, when it touches the ground, releases a giant fire pillar that covers him and the ground.
  • Ice Form: The ice form allows Dark Nebula to move into a circle, trying to hit Kirby with his body. Dark Nebula can also release an ice beam that creates ice on the track, but this attack ignores the edges of the screen. Tornado and Wheel Kirby can use the temporary ice terrain to make their abilities icy.
  • Electric Form: Dark Nebula's movement involves a zig-zag pattern. His electric attack involves staying at the center, shooting four electric beams towards the corners, and electrifying the borders of the screen.


Kirby: Squeak Squad has four Sub-Games (three of which use the touch screen): Speedy Teatime, Smash Ride, Treasure Shot, and Boss Endurance. The first three games have Kirby face-off with Storo, Spinni, and Doc respectively. Smash Ride also features some of the miscellaneous Squeakers.

Unused content[edit]

KSqS BlockKirby.png An unused design for a Copy Ability exists in the game's files called 'Block'. When Kirby has this ability, he gains a hat similar to that of Mirror from Kirby Super Star and gains a staff similar in look to the Triple Star cane. It is unclear how this ability would have functioned.
