|Portrays a stylized outdoor scene where several characters are riding a wave on the ocean. Aboard the Lor Starcutter are Kirby (with the Paper Parasol from Kirby Fighters Deluxe), King Dedede, Meta Knight, Magolor, Taranza, Susie, and three out of the four Channel PPP Crew members (Reporter Waddle Dee, Microphone Waddle Dee, and Camera Waddle Dee). In the ocean, a Squishy and a Carpa can be seen, as well as Gooey riding in Kine's mouth and Assistant Waddle Dee riding on a Driblee. Assistant Waddle Dee holds a sign that says 「新年」 ("New Year"). In the distant background, Castle Dedede can be seen, as well as Shadow Kirby riding a Warp Star and wielding a Parasol.
新年一発目！みなさんに福が訪れることを願い、カービィさんたちと宇宙船「ローア」に乗ってお届けしまーすっ！ 打ち上がる波と初日の出が…う、美しいです～っ！！なんだか元気がわいてきました！ わたくしたちもまた、今年一年はりきってまいりますよ～！
Happy New Year!
|Commemorates New Year's Day. Notably, Kirby and Shadow Kirby both appear with the Parasol ability, likely referencing how Shadow Kirby always has the same ability as Kirby in Kirby Fighters Deluxe and Kirby Fighters 2.

|Portrays an outdoor scene on a beach with several characters having fun. From top to bottom, Kirby and Void Soul can be seen riding on a Friend Star like good buddies, Zan Partizanne (wearing a straw hat) trying to catch unhooded Hyness, Francisca (with a Chumbrella) seemingly talking with Flamberge, and a Coner looking at all of them in curiosity. The entire scene takes place on a beach, with the scenery being similar to that of Reef Resort. At the top, a rainbow with text underneath it reading "❤3rd❤ Anniversary" can be seen.
|Commemorates the third anniversary of the release of Kirby Star Allies. The artwork is similar to the "Let Them Know We're Happy" Celebration Picture, as both feature the Three Mage-Sisters relaxing on a beach with unhooded Hyness and a Coner, a Chumbrella being held by Francisca, and Zan Partizanne wearing a straw hat. They also both include a rainbow in a starry sky and feature Kirby riding the Friend Star.

In the background, the rest of the Channel PPP Crew and Ice Dragon are also enjoying shaved ice, with Microphone Waddle Dee and Camera Waddle Dee sitting together, Assistant Waddle Dee holding a sign that says 「ひんやり」 ("feeling cool"), and Microphone Waddle Dee experiencing brain freeze.
|毎日暑いですね～！！こんな日は冷たいモノが食べたくなっちゃいます！…おや？カービィさん、ピッチさんを抱えて一体何を… ええ～っ！？お口から細かい氷がたくさん出てきましたよ！？ まるで「かき氷屋さん」の様ですっ！そのまま具をのせてシロップをかけて…いっただっきま～す！！
It's been so hot lately! On days like these, you just want to eat something cold. ...Hmm? Kirby, what are you doing with Pitch in your arms...?

|Portrays Kirby viewing two Awoofies as they charge towards him, while a third stands on a Star Block and looks surprised. Elfilin and the Channel PPP Crew look frightened (besides Camera Waddle Dee, who is excluded from the image, likely because he is filming the scene).
This is the Waddle Dee Report Team!
|Commemorates the announcement of Kirby and the Forgotten Land on the September 23rd Nintendo Direct. This image was also posted to the English Nintendo of America feed, albeit without the "Channel PPP LIVE" logo in the top-right.
|Are you excited for Kirby's next adventure?

Wow! It's the first anniversary of the release of "Kirby Fighters 2"!
|Commemorates the 1st anniversary of Kirby Fighters 2.
This illustration was originally drawn by designer Higashito for "Kirby Fighters 2 Vol. 4" blog post on HAL's official website. The Kirby JP Twitter version removes his signature from bottom-right corner for unknown reasons.
|Oct 29, 2021
|Shows Wrestler Kirby and Bandana Waddle Dee on a Buddy Star Blaster, with King Dedede, Meta Knight, Microphone Waddle Dee, and Reporter Waddle Dee fleeing an explosion caused by Magolor throwing Gem Apple bombs at them. Assistant Waddle Dee is holding a sign that says 「バディ」 ("buddy") and hitching a ride on the Buddy Star Blaster, much to the shock of Bandana Waddle Dee.
Let's warm up your body in a chilly day! It's called the "Buddy Obstacle Race"~!

|Shows Kirby eating cakes resembling Star Blocks alongside King Dedede and Meta Knight. Magolor is baking cakes as well. The Channel PPP crew is reviewing as Marx gets tired from stirring food. An Invincible Candy can be seen in Kirby's cake.
We heard that there was a party where you could eat delicious cake, so we came to report! We didn't know this until now, but you can eat Star Blocks, what a scoop! I wonder what they taste like?
