Differences from Kirby Fighters
Changes to Single Player Mode
- There are now Team Battles in which Kirby fights with a partner.
- Kracko is fought as a Boss in Round 5, who previously only appears as the Bubbly Clouds stage hazard enemy in Kirby Fighters.
- The Final Round, rather than being against Shadow Kirby, is instead a battle in which Kirby fights Team DDD (the number varies in difficulty levels): King Dedede with multiple pink Mini Dededes and two medium-sized orange Combo Dededes.
- The Another Dimension stage no longer appears as well.
Alternate Costumes called Rare Outfits are added for each Copy Ability.
Rare Outfits are unlocked when completing Single Player Mode on any difficulty with the respective ability. They can be selected by pressing X in the ability menu.
When any Rare Outfits are unlocked, they may also appear on CPU Kirbys.
Rare Outfits don't change any aspects of the ability in core gameplay such Kirby's stamina and hitbox, or ability attack's damage and hitbox.

Team Battles are introduced in both Single Player and Multiplayer Mode.
Besides firing small energy shots when held by one Kirby, Team Cannon can allow Kirbys, provided that they are on the same team, to stack on top of each other to shoot a large beam of energy, which deals a large sum of damage. Larger amounts of Kirbys result in a more powerful beam.
Team Cannon's charge beam attack doesn't stop the timer in Single Player Mode even though everything else becomes still apart from the Team Cannon Kirbys.
Shadow Kirby Color
Despite his removal as a boss, Shadow Kirby still appears in the game, and is now playable. Upon clearing Single Player on Very Hard for the first time using any copy ability, the player is given the option to select Shadow Kirby as a Kirby color in the other modes. This also causes him to appear on the title screen.

Final Round: Team DDD
- Main article: Team DDD
The final battle is against King Dedede and his group of clones made by the Star Rod Hammer Dedede Custom at the Fountain of Dreams. First, the player has to battle all of the Mini Dededes, who after jumping in from the background, are defeated in one hit, so they don't pose much of a threat. After that, Dedede and his two orange Combo Dededes appear to battle Kirby. Once the Combo Dededes are defeated, King Dedede grows over twice his normal size and attacks Kirby. Once he is defeated, the player unlocks a rare outfit for their current copy ability (if they don't already have it).
