 Kirby Super Star is definitly my favorite of the Kirby Series. Although
the game was only released in Japan it is still very enjoyable.

 Released in 1996 the game never made it's way to the US but can still
be played via emulation . The game includes nine different games in one
pack, creating a megapack of fun and entertainment.  The game features
20 "powers" that Kirby can gain from his enemies, this is a guide
presented to cover those powers in-depth with descriptions and where
they can be found.

CORRECTION: It seems that 'Kirby Super Star' *was* indeed released in
the United States shortly after the Japanese release, but it was on a
small scale.  The game is apparently a rare find and worth a pretty
penny if you do find it.

Use the beam attack against enemies! Fire the beam by pressing Y. This
is a very handy and useful ability.

    Y: beam whip
    Dash + Y: cycle beam
    Dash + Y: beam machine gun (in air)
    Forward + Y: capture beam (near enemy)
    Hold Y: wave beam


Blast your enemies to bits! Take accurate aim and throw carefully. Your
throw will be controlled by Y.

    Y: hold bomb
       throw a bomb
       set a bomb (near enemy)
    Down + Y: drop a bomb
    Dash + Y: straight throw
    *: Bomb angle depends on how long you press Y.


This is one of the few abilities that you can only use once, then it
disappears. You get it by defeating and swallowing the Chef Kawasaki
mini-boss. When it's used Kirby bangs on a metal pot and a giant pot
falls to the ground. Then, all the enemies on the screen go into the
pot and Kirby jumps up onto the pot and stirs its contents. Finally,
the enemies that were in the pot pop out, but as power-ups to recover
your health!


Copy enemies' abilities without fighting! The helper will also be able
to copy abilities!

    Y: analyze beam (Kirby); sneaky hand (Helper)
    *: Can copy an enemy's ability.
    *: The helper can dump a copy ability by pressing A.


This is another one-use ability obtained by either swallowing the
walking bomb enemy with a skull picture on it or using the Copy ability
on the floating orange heads. When used, Kirby explodes and all of the
regular enemies onscreen will be defeated. When used against a boss,
it'll give the boss a good amount of damage.


The cutter can cut anything in its path. Use it to cut down enemies, as
well as ropes that get in your way.

    Y: cutter boomerang
    Dash + Y: cutter dash attack
    Y repeatedly: cutter drop attack (in air)
    Down + Y: high-speed cutter drop (in air)
    Y repeatedly: nonstop cutter attack (near enemy)


Copy the abilities of Fighter and assume the role of a mighty karate
expert. Increase your power with practice!

    Y: Vulcan jab (weak)
       Smash punch (strong)
    Dash + Y: Leg sweep (weak)
              Spin kick (strong)
    Y (in air): Down kick (weak)
                Double kick (strong)
    Up + Y: Rising break
    Forward + Y: Grab enemy (near enemy)
    Grab + Y: Arm throw
    Grab + Back + Y: Tomoe throw (Kirby only/when facing right)
    *: Strength of attack depends on how long you press Y.


Use dash + Y to hurl burning fireballs. You can light fuses, candles,
or even yourself to become a mega-powerful weapon.

    Y: fire blow
    Y + Control Pad: change fire direction
    Hold Y + Back: fireball
    Dash + Y: burning attack
    B + Y: fireball spin
    Y before landing: fireball roll


Break through solid obstacles and pound in stakes to take Kirby to
hidden areas.

    Y: hammer nail
    Dash + Y: hammer swing
    Y: giant swing (in air)
    Dash + Y: ultragiant swing (in air)
    Up + Y: hammer flip
    Dash + A: hammer throw (Kirby only)


Turn Kirby into the iceman and turn the enemies into frozen blocks of
ice. Don't slip!

    Y: freezer breath
    Forward + Y: freezer suction (near enemy)
    Dash + Y or Y repeatedly: freezer blizzard
    Freezer suction + Y: freezer ejection
    Y: freezer sprinkle (in air)
    Touching ice: ice kick


Turn Kirby into a dangerous jet. Store jet power by holding Y. The more
power you store the more powerful the attack.

    Hold Y: store power
    Release Y: jet kick
    Release Y: jet heading (in air)
    Max power stored: jet dash
    Jet Dash + Y: jet cracker
    Release Y: jet blow (near enemy)
    Jet Blow: diving rocket (max power)
    Power stored + B: save stored power
    B: hover (in air)
    Max power + B: Ultra-jet jump (in air)


This is another ability that can be used and disappears, but it can be
used three times! Get it by swallowing a walking microphone enemy. It
destroys all regular enemies.  It won't instantly destroy a boss enemy
but it will take off about 30% percent each time, so by the time you
use all three attacks you have most of the Boss's energy drained.


Reflect enemy attacks or fool them by creating a double image of Kirby.

    Y: mirror cut
    Hold Y: reflect force
    Dash + Y: mirror body
    L or R: reflect guard


Copy the famous Japanese Ninja to hide in shadows and vanish into the

    Tap Y: knife throw

    Forward + Y: air drop (near enemy)
    Upon damage, push Y: hide defense
    Push a wall in the air: stick to wall
    Stick to wall + B: triangle jump


This is a hidden ability and you can obtain it by swallowing the multi-
colored balls the Chameleon enemy shoots at you. You can also swallow
the blobs that Heavy Lobster spits out to get this ability. You can
only use this move once, though. You can blind Heavy Lobster and change
the Chameleon's colors with it! (You can't get this ability in the
Milky Way Wishes.)

    Y: paint blast


Protect Kirby from enemies above! Splash, drill, or toss your enemies
to the sky! A lot of possibilities with the Parasol.

    Y: parasol swing
    Forward + Y: parasol roll (near enemy)
    Hold Y: parasol shield
    Up: parasol chute (in air)
    Dash + Y: parasol drill
    Down + Y: parasol dive (in air)


Shock your enemies by firing sparks!

    *: The more you press the Control Pad, the more power is stored.
    No power: plasma needle
    Slight power: plasma arrow
    Medium power: plasma spark
    High power: plasma laser
    Full power: plasma wave cannon


Transform Kirby into various stone figures and smash the enemies.
Note: You have a small chance of turning into a cameo Samus or Mario
statue with this power, watch for it!

    Y: stone
    Y: stone smash (in air)
    Dash + Y: turbo stone

The King of weapons! Fire beams from the tip of your sword. Become a

       chop and beam (when energy meter is full)
    Y repeatedly: multi- sword attack

thorns and don't speed!
