In this episode, King Dedede forces Kirby to battle his Martial Arts All-Stars in a formal coliseum match in order to save the people of Cappy Town from the Figure Monster horde.

|"King Dedede's right! He may have set a trap for you, but it only worked because you all bought so many mini-figures!"|
|"Kirby's gonna be a wreck after the recreation I'm plannin'!"|
|"I begged you not to buy all these figures and look what happened!"|
|"Only one to go! Only one to go!"||This dialogue is present only in the Japanese version, so it is translated from that version.|
|"I like action figures, but this is too much action!"|
|"These things are a lot livelier than when I got 'em!"|
|"We never stood a chance of collecting any!"|
|"What are we supposed to do, call Kirby to play pin the tail on the monster?"|
|"Leave us alone!"|
|"They're cooler than the ones I had!"|
|"I knew these things were nothing but trouble!"|
|"You're a figure fraud!"|
|"It was all a dirty trick!"|
|"Sire! Does your all-star team intend to play by the rules in this match?"|
|"You've got to think creatively, D! The monsters were designed to look like toys, so they could play around with their enemies."|
|"In our last episode, Tuggle and Gengu teamed up to create a new taste sensation, each packed with a powerful toy surprise. Even the grown-ups went gaga collecting the action figures...and Kirby was happy to scarf down the candy! But King Dedede schemed with Night Mare Enterprises to drop a destructive new line of action figures on the unsuspecting Cappies. Now the mini-milita is on the march. Can Kirby conquer them?"|
|"Stop! These pieces are priceless!"|
|"But Dedede was keeping 'em all for himself!"|
|"It's not my fault, dear! Tuff's the figure enthusiast!"|
|"How do they make 'em grow up like that?!"|
|"Now it's a fair fight!"|
|"Move it, boy! You're blockin' off my escape route!"|
|"How was I supposed to know they were going to turn into monsters?!"|
The episode begins with a brief recap of the events of the previous episode. From there, the story continues on the night the Figure Monsters came to life and started terrorizing Cappy Town. The monsters congregate in the streets by the thousands and proceed to smash up the town. The villagers proceed to grab whatever they can and try to fight back. As Tiff and her family do the same at Castle Dedede, Tiff soon realizes that Kirby might be in trouble, and she and Tuff proceed to his house. Meanwhile, King Dedede and Escargoon are also beset by the monsters, and complain to Night Mare Enterprises about sending them the uncooperative horde. In response, the N.M.E. Sales Guy tells them to think creatively about how to handle the toys, and King Dedede comes up with an idea that will involve Kirby. At Kirby's house, Kirby and Tokkori attempt to escape the monsters by climbing out of the chimney, but are booted out instead. Once outside, Kirby sees the people of Cappy Town running towards him begging for his help. Kirby tries to run as well, but is stopped by King Dedede and Escargoon in their Royal Racecar flanked by thousands of the toys.
King Dedede takes his time to gloat about the situation he has trapped the villagers in, but after arriving on the scene, Tiff tries to rally the villagers to fight back. However, they soon grow tired before any significant progress is made. King Dedede cuts a deal with the town that he will call off the monsters if Kirby accepts his challenge to face off against the Martial Arts All-Stars in a tournament. The next day, the town gathers in a newly-built coliseum inside Castle Dedede's courtyard and Kirby steps forward to fight the monsters King Dedede has in store for him. As she watches, Tiff begins to regret everything that has led to this point, and wonders if Kirby should forfeit, but Tuff insists it is too late for that now. King Dedede proceeds to introduce his five toy martial artists, as the audience realizes they had been scammed into believing they could ever have collected those figurines. Before the fight starts, Meta Knight stops by to ask King Dedede if his figures intend to play fair, and Dedede ensures they will. However, as the fight begins, the team proceeds to attack Kirby all at once, firing at him with energy blasts. After taking a few hits, Kirby rallies and inhales their beams, gaining the Fighter Copy Ability. Seeing this, King Dedede calls off the fight so he can reorganize the event into a proper one-on-one affair.
Round one pits Kirby against the kung-fu fighter. The toy begins by dealing a series of rapid punches to Kirby, and he retaliates by throwing a number of Smash Punches at it, but the toy blocks each one using its nun-chucks. The toy then proceeds to attack Kirby relentlessly with the nun-chucks, but accidentally gets them wrapped around its arm. Kirby uses this opening to obliterate the toy using another Smash Punch, thus winning the first round. The second round pits Kirby against the boxing figure. Tiff and Tuff try to fit Kirby out with boxing gloves of his own, but they do not quite fit. Kirby receives another swift beating from the boxing figure, but after being knocked into the air, Kirby retaliates using a Smash Punch and Vulcan Jab. After a brief duel, the boxing figure is overpowered, and Kirby finishes it off with the Rising Break technique and wins round two. Round three pits Kirby against the karate figure. As Kirby gets chopped senseless, Meta Knight comments on the match, seeing this as an opportunity for Kirby to grow stronger in the face of harsh adversity. From there, the karate figure looks as if it is about to finish Kirby off, but Kirby counters by grabbing and throwing it. The karate figure tries to retaliate, but Kirby tosses it again, this time defeating it by throwing it into King Dedede and Escargoon's pulpit and winning round 3.
After recovering, King Dedede and Escargoon introduce the fourth contestant; the tai-chi master. This figure starts the match by slowly moving its limbs about, which Kirby playfully mimics. The tai-chi master then strikes Kirby using its braided hair, which launches him into the air. Kirby strikes back by landing one good hit on the figure's head, and after a delay, the figure falls over and is defeated without much of a fight and Kirby wins round four. The crowd becomes excited about Kirby's chances and the figure monsters become nervous. Refusing to surrender, King Dedede pulls out his final all-star and sets up the sumo ring that it will battle in. Kirby and his sumo-wrestler opponent begin the match in traditional fashion by stomping right and left and then tossing salt at each-other. The fight initially looks one-sided, as Kirby's light body cannot budge the super heavyweight opponent, and he is tossed around like a ball. After taking a few more hits, Kirby learns the figure's weakness by playing a vanishing act, then ambushing him from behind. The sumo figure tries to counter with a body slam, but Kirby retaliates using another Rising Break, which finishes the figure off, winning Kirby the final round.
The crowd of Cappies celebrates Kirby's victory by jumping down from the stands and whacking the remaining figure monsters with various implements as King Dedede and Escargoon smolder over their loss. Sir Ebrum presents Kirby with a massive trophy to commemorate his victory. Later on, King Dedede and Escargoon attempt to search the remaining choco-capsules for any more martial arts all-star figures, but fail to find any as the N.M.E. Sales Guy taunts them for their cheapness. As King Dedede bemoans his fate, the episode ends as Tiff, Tuff, and Kirby laugh at his misfortune.
