The Arena is a Sub-Game debuting in Kirby Super Star, where the requirement is to the defeat the Main Game bosses and mid-bosses encountered in the title it appears in, with a single life, with limited health benefits. It is similar to Boss Endurance modes, but is generally given more importance, and is always required for 100% Completion of the game.

In later titles, completing this mode would unlock The True Arena, which is a similar concept, but instead pits Kirby against all the Extra Game bosses. Kirby Star Allies introduced The Ultimate Choice, which is similar in concept to The Arena, albeit with an adjustable intensity gauge that increases or decreases the number of bosses and quality of healing items.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby Super Star/Kirby Super Star Ultra[edit]

In Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra, the objective of the Arena is to defeat all the bosses from Spring Breeze, Dyna Blade, The Great Cave Offensive, Revenge of Meta Knight, and Milky Way Wishes. To make this task easier, Kirby is given five Maxim Tomatoes and five regular tomatoes to replenish his health, but he can only do so between boss battles. He is also given his pick of every normal ability in the game at the beginning, and may choose between two Copy Pedestals in between fights. Beating The Arena once is necessary to unlock the Sound Test in the original and The True Arena in Super Star Ultra.

Bosses[edit]

The following are the list of bosses encountered. All of the bosses are fought in a random order, with Marx always being the last boss fought.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land[edit]

In Kirby's Return to Dream Land, The Arena is unlocked after completing the main Story Mode. Like the previous Arena, all of the bosses are encountered in a random order, with the Lor Starcutter, Magolor, and Magolor's 2nd form fought last in that order.

Bosses[edit]

Kirby: Triple Deluxe[edit]

The Arena title in Triple Deluxe.

The Arena in Kirby: Triple Deluxe is largely the same as the previous two. This time however, treasure chests will appear sometimes between battles, containing keychains. Players can also receive one Maxim Tomato inside an Assist Star that can be used mid-battle. The first seven bosses are fought randomly, while the last three fights are in a set order, like in Return to Dream Land.

Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

Unlike in previous installments, all the bosses and mid-bosses are fought in a set order. Rather than having a limited amount of healing items, an Assist Star is given after each round, with the contents being a Maxim Tomato after Clanky Woods, Mecha Knight, and President Haltmann, and a cherry after every other round.

The following bosses are fought in The Arena in this order:
