Megaton Punch is a sub-game in Kirby Super Star and a nostalgic sub-game in Kirby Super Star Ultra. This mini-game pits Kirby against three opponents in a challenge to strike the blocks the hardest. Strong punches will crack much more than the targeted blocks, with even Pop Star being cracked (nearly in half).

Gameplay

Three levels of difficulty are offered with the only difference being how high the opponents will score. A set of three meters will determine the strength of the players' punch. The first is a rising and falling bar meter that gives a harder hit when activated at the top. Secondly, a pair of cross-hairs will rotate and occasionally blend together. Activating while the centers are overlapping yields the hardest punch. Lastly, a pendulum will swing past a targeted circle, which rewards a harder strike for activating while dead-center.[1]

Kirby's three opponents will always be Waddle Dee, Knuckle Joe, and Iron Mam. At the end of each match, the opponents' force is compared in mt (metric tons, or Megatons if the title is relevant).
