Milky Way Wishes is the sixth main game in Kirby Super Star and its remake, and the final one in the former. It possesses a difficulty level of 5 stars and can be accessed after finishing Revenge of Meta Knight. The stage is mainly notable for requiring Kirby to collect Copy Essence Deluxes to receive Copy Abilities, rather than acquiring them from enemies.


The story begins as Kirby and other onlookers witness the sun and moon of Pop Star fighting endlessly for control of the sky, causing day and night to shift dramatically. As they look on, a small jester named Marx comes riding in on a ball, telling Kirby that the only way to stop this is to summon the Comet NOVA using energy from the planets in the Milky Way.

Kirby visits seven major planets, collecting a Sparkling Star from each one. Once he has all seven, he uses them to summon the great Comet from beyond space and time. The Nova proclaims to Kirby that he may have one wish, but before Kirby can make that wish, Marx appears out of nowhere, bumps Kirby out of the way, and wishes for complete control of Pop Star. The Nova grants Marx his wish, as he gloats to Kirby, saying he got the sun and moon to fight in order to steal this opportunity. Both the Nova and Marx fly off toward Pop Star, as Kirby is left stranded out in space. Thankfully, the stars he collected coalesce into the Starship, which Kirby uses to make chase.

The sun and moon come back to their senses and hold off Comet NOVA, giving Kirby time to enter the great clockwork beast and disable its Nucleus, preventing it from granting Marx's wish. From there, Kirby has to battle Marx directly. Upon defeating him in his powered-up form, Marx goes careening into the disabled Nova, causing both of them to explode, and the day to be saved.


These are the stages in Milky Way Wishes as well as the copy abilities and bosses they have. Kirby can do these in any order, but a line of stars connects a completed planet to another planet, and if Kirby follows this pattern, he will go through all the levels in this order:

???? Copy This is a secret planet that can be found off the main path. Finding it is not necessary to complete the game. The planet where Marx is fought is also called "????", but it is not clear if they are the same planet.



Milky Way Wishes easter egg in Star Fox Zero promotional video
  • Despite Kirby's inability to obtain Copy Abilities from most enemies in Milky Way Wishes, there are two enemy types that do yield abilities: Bombers, Noddys and paint blobs. Their abilities are not available in Copy Essence Deluxe form and can only be received by swallowing them.
    • Because it's possible to gain abilities from these enemies, it is also possible to get a random ability by swallowing two or more of them at once. This can be easily done at the beginning area of Hotbeat with two Noddys.
  • The Kirby Star Allies level Far-Flung Starlight Heroes is similar to Milky Way Wishes in many ways, namely in featuring stages as planets and being able to visit the main ones in any order.
  • In the animated video promoting Star Fox Zero, "Star Fox Zero - The Battle Begins", a magazine in Slippy Toad's possession has several planet names from Milky Way Wishes on it (namely Floria, Aqualiss, Mecheye, and Halfmoon).
