Story Mode, also known as Main Game and Main Mode, is the main mode of a given Kirby game, usually having the game's main storyline. It is always available from the beginning, and does not need to be unlocked. If a game has Extra Modes, much of the content from Story Mode is revisited there, usually with twists.

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror's Story Mode is labeled as START GAME in the main menu. The games Story Mode consist of Kirby and his colored clones exploring the Mirror World and collecting eight mirror shards being held by various bosses to restore the Dimension Mirror and save Meta Knight. After Dark Meta Knight is defeated, Kirby and his clones take on Dark Mind, the mastermind behind the attack of the Mirror World. With aid from Shadow Kirby and Meta Knight's sword the Mirror World is saved and the Kirbys return to their own world, still in fours.

Kirby's Epic Yarn / Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn[edit]

Kirby's Epic Yarn has a main mode consisting of obligatory stages set in the level hubs of Patch Land and Dream Land, as well as optional stages unlocked after gathering enough beads in boss stages, while activities with Kirby's neighbors are unlocked as sub-games after certain stages are cleared. The story follows Kirby and Prince Fluff as they restore Patch Land with the help of the Magic Yarn and bring Dream Land back to normal. There is no strictly defined post-game mode.

Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn includes the same and more, adding a distinct hard mode in the form of Devilish Mode, which is optional and can be played instead of Normal Mode altogether.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land[edit]

While Kirby and the Forgotten Land does not feature a traditional Story Mode (as it features nearly seamless integration of game modes, with the only menu between the title screen and gameplay being the file select), every piece of content accessed by Kirby hopping onto the central Warp Star of Waddle Dee Town (as well as Point of Arrival) can be considered the equivalent to a Story Mode.

Various levels of Story Mode progression unlock new attractions in the main hub, with saved Waddle Dees being the metric of completion.

Games without any form of Story Mode[edit]

The following are games that lack any Story Mode, either because they do not contain modes at all, or contain various modes but none is considered a "main" or "story" one.
