The Maxim Tomato box[conjectural title] is an item, first appearing in Kirby's Return to Dream Land which, upon being thrown, breaks open to reveal a Maxim Tomato.

The box itself is a simple design, with red sides and silver trim, with a picture of a Maxim Tomato on one side.

The box can be picked up, carried, and thrown like many other items in the game. Similarly, the character holding the box can only make one jump and cannot use any attack but a Slide. When thrown, the box itself can deal minor damage to enemies. Additionally, like most items, the box can be carried through doors into other parts of the stage, but care must be taken, as it cannot be carried or used underwater.

In order to obtain the Maxim Tomato within, the box must be thrown, and then hit the ground. Done correctly, it will shake for a moment, then break open, freeing the tomato. If thrown by mistake, the carrier has the time in which it is shaking to pick it up again before it breaks.

The box only appears in the following scenarios:

  • In Story Mode and Extra Mode, if Kirby is defeated by the same boss at least 6 times in a row, a box will appear near Kirby's respawn point.
  • In The Arena and The True Arena, only 1 box is available in the rest area between battles, and will not respawn after opening. In the True Arena only, the box cannot be carried through the last five battles (starting from Lor & Magolor EX) because the Dimension Hole is too high for Kirby to jump into while carrying the box.
