Strawberry Shortcake (or just Shortcake) is a Food dish which can be seen in many games in the Kirby series. It is Kirby's favorite dessert item, and he will go to absurd lengths to get a slice if he is hungry for it.

When it appears as a regular Food item, it can be grabbed to restore a moderate amount of Stamina.

Notable appearances in the games[edit]

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards[edit]

Shortcake is one of the many food items which Adeleine paints for her friends. In one cut-scene, Kirby is seen munching into a slice, along with an Apple.

Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble[edit]

In Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble, strawberry shortcake appears as one of four Food items in stages. It recovers 5 HP when consumed.

Kirby: Squeak Squad[edit]

In this title, Kirby's entire motivation for adventuring is to get back his shortcake slice, which had been stolen from him by the Squeaks. He does not get it back until after he defeats Dark Nebula, and the Squeaks return it to him as an apology for the trouble they caused.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land[edit]

In the intro cut-scene, Kirby is seen running down a path with a shortcake slice over his head, being pursued hotly by King Dedede and Bandana Waddle Dee, presumably because Kirby had stolen it from them. When the Lor Starcutter crashes into Dream Land, Kirby drops the cake in surprise, but looks back toward it later.

Kirby Star Allies[edit]

In Heroes in Another Dimension, the specific Strawberry Shortcake slice from Squeak Squad appears as an Easter egg food item at the end of Daroach's section in Dimension III. It also appears whenever Daroach is cooked by Cook Potluck.

In the anime[edit]

Strawberry shortcake also appears in Kirby 3D, a special episode of Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. In this instance, Escargoon uses a mobile cake on wheels to lure Kirby into Castle Dedede, whereupon he comes face to face with Lobzilla, the primary foe of the episode. The cake is not seen again afterward.
