 This box: view  talk  edit 

Kirby 3D Rumble is a Sub-Game that appears in Kirby: Planet Robobot. In it, Kirby is tasked with dispatching enemies that appear in a series of fully maneuverable 3-D environments without using any Copy Abilities. This sub-game would later be expanded into a standalone title called Kirby's Blowout Blast.

Each area in Kirby 3D Rumble is a platform of a certain size and shape, which Kirby can wander around on. Enemies appear in sequence, which Kirby can dispatch using either Star Blocks if they are available, or by swallowing other enemies or stars to spit at them. Score is kept for each enemy defeated, with combo chains leading to higher scores. At the same time, Kirby must avoid getting hit by the enemies, or falling off the edge of the stages (despite still being able to float, falling too far down will cause him to tumble out of bounds). Like in the main game, Kirby has finite Stamina and he will lose if he runs out of health. In addition, there are coins of various value scattered around the platforms, which Kirby can also collect to further increase his score. Once all the enemies are cleared on a certain stage, Kirby progresses to the next using a Warp Star, until the last stage of a level is complete. Once that is done, the score is tallied, and a trophy is awarded based on how high the score is.

Scoring[edit]

Scoring is based on many factors. The following lists every known value from the scoring system:

  • Bronze coin = 100 points
  • Silver coin = 300 points
  • Gold coin = 500 points
  • All standard enemies = 50 points*
  • Masher = 3000 points* (all varieties)
  • Combo hit (2 & 3) = +200 points to enemy defeated**
  • Combo hit (4 & 5)= +400 points to enemy defeated**
  • Combo hit (6+)= +700 points to enemy defeated**
  • Reach Combo x10 = +1000 points
  • Reach Combo x20 = +2000 points
    • etc. for higher combo levels
  • Kirby is hit = -100 points
  • No damage = +2000 points
  • Speed clear = +2000 points
  • All coins collected = +1000 points
  • Full Combos = +3000 points

*Enemies defeated are worth an additional 50 points during combo chains up to 10, with 100 points added on top for each combo level reached after that.

**Applies to projectiles only.

At the end of the level, a trophy is rewarded, ranging through Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. It is not required to earn Platinum on all stages in order to clear this Sub-Game.

Trivia[edit]

Galactic Nova just passes by, much to Kirby's amusement.
  • Some easter eggs can be spotted if the player moves the camera using the C-Stick on a New Nintendo 3DS.
    • Galactic Nova can appear in Stage 3-4 by moving the camera to face the top-right corner and waiting for a long time.
    • Castle Dedede can be seen in the background if the camera is aimed eastward and towards the ground.
    • Each area in the sub-game features at least one hidden sticker. For instance, the Level Select area has Kirby's sticker from Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble hidden on the front side of the stage, and a sticker of King Dedede from Kirby's Dream Land also appears in Stage 3-4 atop Castle Dedede.
