Meta Knightmare Ultra is an Extra Game exclusive to Kirby Super Star Ultra. It includes all the main games from Kirby Super Star (minus Gourmet Race and the Arena), with one main difference- the player plays as Meta Knight instead of Kirby or a helper. Also unlike the original game, the time it takes to complete each Kirby Super Star game is recorded. The game also has its own storyline, though it is not canon with the main series.

Story

Meta Knight flies to various places in Dream Land, training to become stronger. After going across Pop Star and the surrounding planets, Meta Knight visits the Galactic NOVA, which can grant wishes. Meta Knight asks to fight the greatest warrior in the galaxy, so NOVA calls in Galacta Knight, who was sealed away because he was thought to be too powerful. Once Meta Knight defeats Galacta Knight, his training and the mode are both complete.

Gameplay Differences

As expected, moving Meta Knight is different from moving Kirby. Meta Knight can't inhale or copy foes, but he always can fly like the wing ability and attack like the sword ability. Also, Meta Knight can use energy, as explained below. Food is harder to find, as all normal food is removed, and Maxim Tomatoes and Copy Pedestals are replaced by food.

Energy

Meta Knight not only gets score for defeating enemies, he also gets energy from them. He gets one to three energy from an enemy, depending on the strength of the enemy. For example, he can only get one energy from Broom Hatter or Waddle Dee, but he can get two from Waddle Doo or Knuckle Joe and three from Grizzo. He gets five energy from a mid-boss and ten from a boss, regardless of whether they are easy, like Whispy Woods, or more difficult, like Wham Bam Rock or Heavy Lobster. Meta Knight can use this energy to perform special attacks. Each one is performed by tapping its icon on the Nintendo DS touch screen. He can only hold up to 50 energy.

Mach Tornado
Time stops and Meta Knight jumps towards the center of the screen, then spins around and releases two giant tornadoes. These tornadoes kill all normal enemies and drastically hurt most bosses. Since it costs 30/50 energy, it can't be used twice in a row even if Meta Knight has maximum energy.
