|“||Collect Picture Pieces to complete celebration pictures!||”|
— in-game tip from Kirby Star Allies
There are two main varieties of Picture Pieces; standard and rare. Standard pieces when collected will add a random piece onto an empty blue section of a picture, or may land on a piece that was already added, effectively nullifying it. Rare pieces - on the other hand - will add a number of pre-determined pieces onto red sections of pictures. If the same rare piece is then collected again, it will turn into three normal pieces.
Collecting Picture Pieces
There are several ways to collect standard Picture Pieces. They are as follows:
- Scattered in various locations in stages.
- Pressing a Big Switch again, or in Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go!.
- Reaching the #1 spot in the Goal Game.
- Opening Treasure Chests in The Ultimate Choice.
- Scanning in an amiibo.
When scanning an amiibo, a Kirby series figurine will give two pieces, where any other series figurine will give only one.
Rare Piece Locations
While completing the Celebration Pictures is not required for 100% completion of the game, collecting all of the rare pieces is required. The sections filled in by rare Picture Pieces are not based on the stage, but rather the total number of pieces collected; in other words, the sections that get filled in will always be the same regardless of which stage the pieces are collected from.
The following table lists each Rare Picture Piece location in Kirby Star Allies:
|Rare Picture Piece Locations in Kirby Star Allies Story Mode|
|Level||Stage||Image||How to reach|
|Dream Land||Green Gardens||After defeating Mr. Frosty, Kirby and his friends must venture forth, where they will find some burning logs blocking off a path. Using the Ice ability or the Blizzard enchantment can allow the team to get rid of this obstacle. This leads to a dead end with some tall grass. Cutting or burning the grass will yield this piece.|
|Dream Land||Donut Dome||This picture piece is blocked off by a section of floor, which can be removed by hitting a Post in the wall which is guarded by shield enemies and fiery logs. To hit this post, either Splash Curling or Ice Curling is necessary.|
|Dream Land||Honey Hill||At the very end of the stage, four Fuse Cannons can be found hooked to the same fuse. The fuse will need to be lit, then all four cannons must be occupied before they fire. Doing so will allow Kirby and his allies to bust through a series of stone ceilings to reach this picture piece at the top.|
|Dream Land||Fruity Forest||Along the path just after the Invincible Candy, a chamber can be found under the main road full of Nruffs containing a Treasure Chest. Inside this chest is the picture piece.|

Breaking this nut reveals a Key, which can be used to open the way to a round-trip door. In this door is a fuse hooked to four Fuse Cannons. Kirby and his allies will need to jump in after lighting the fuse in order to blast up through the ceiling and find this picture piece inside a Treasure Chest.|

- When collecting a Rare Picture Piece for the first time, whoever collected it will briefly pose with the item, like when key items like Code Cubes are collected in previous titles.
- In the Demo version of Star Allies, Picture Pieces can be collected and used to partially fill in pictures, but they are not saved, so a picture cannot be completed.
