Top 10 Best Kirby Games

The Top Ten
Kirby's Return to Dream Land Kirby's Return to Dream Land Product Image

(SPOILERS) Before you grab your pitchforks, hear me out. I personally don't like this one. This perhaps may be one of my least favorite Kirby games. It's too standard and surprisingly too difficult. And Magalor becoming the villain in the end means you did all of that for nothing. In the end, I want to FEEL something, like accomplishment. Instead, I feel bad because of the hours of my time that were wasted.

(I don't know if this is spoilers or not but I think so, so SPOILER WARNING) This was the second game from the Kirby series I have ever played and it's one of my favorites. Kirby's Return to Dreamland for the Wii introduces new Super abilities collected from inhaling special enemies. These include: Ultra Sword Grand Hammer & more! It also introduces a character named Magolor that needs Kirby's help to restore his ship. Quick question...
Why is every world in Kirby's Return to Dreamland named after food, maybe because of Kirby's viscous appetite? (His stomach is literally a black hole.) This game also introduces the option for other players to play as King Dedede, Meta Knight, or Bandana Waddle Dee or just seperate colored Kirbys. Meta Knight is a permanent Sword ability while Bandana Waddle Dee is Spear and King Dedede is a permanent Hammer ability, allowing infinite use of the Hammer Throw attack that would normally discard the Hammer abillity.
I love this game so much and it ...more

haven't played it, but I saw a playthrough and I liked it. it was the second kirby game that allowed 4 people to play (amazing mirror was the first) and then you have the challenges and the minigames. plus the plot twist at the end makes this a fun game.

I found another secret room here in this game. It is filled with 1ups stars and food. In order to get there you have to get a perfect score in ninja dojo, scope shot, 7 to 1 in goal game, no health lost in the arena and true arena and all platinum medals with no health lost in challenge stages if done you get a message that you truly completed all of the game and got 101% and that the previous 100% message was a fake.

P.S. tried out and REALLY worked
P.P.s also must find all hal rooms

Kirby Super Star Ultra Kirby Super Star Ultra Product Image

This game is a masterpiece to the DS version, way better than the SNES version. Why this game is better, although the game is the same thing but many things are added to this version. Sub Games, they're really fun minigames you can play, my favorite is Snack Tracks where the 4 Kirbys eat regular foods, not worms, not bombs, or not even boulders. Its fun how you tap to remove worms and boulders and tapping bombs will be flung to the another Kirby's Track. Not much to the remake but after you completed Milky Way Wishes, you unlock Harder Copies to the games like Revenge of the King is the harder copy to Spring Breeze. Even there is a game where you play as Meta Knight. There is an Arena Mode that you can play as the Helpers that's Kirby summons, but Kirby isn't playable in that Arena Mode, there is also a third Arena which has harder enemies and the 4 final bosses to the Harder Games. Not much but Kirby Super Star Ultra is the best game of my life!

My 2nd favorite remake in history (behind Pokemon HG/SS which ironically is also on the DS system) This game makes the original look like Sonic the Hedgehog 2006. Looking back on the original, I realize how TERRIBLE some of the bosses look and how lazily animated they were. Dyna Blade, Dedede, Meta Knight, etc. But this remake makes all of those character look great as well as the backrounds and other stuff. Heck even the items look better. The game also adds in new music tracks for Dyna Blade and Wham Bam Rock, which derived from Air Ride. Heavy Lobster also got its own original theme, which makes it feel off when going back to the original. But what REALLY makes this game outstanding is the 4 new modes. Revenge of the King, Meta Knightmare Ultra, Helper to Hero, and the TRUE ARENA. Revenge of the King is just a harder version of Spring Breeze, which was kind of disappointing... Until the final boss that is. Meta Knightmare Ultra is just like playing through the ...more

This game was one of my first Kirby games and the first game I 100%. I love this game. The redone sprites are cool, A new variety of games to play like True Arena(Which is pretty hard), Meta Knight Ultra WHERE YOU GET TO BE META KNIGHT, Helper To Heroes that lets you be the helpers in the game which is awesome, and much more. I think this is an amazing remake to Super Star.

It's a great game! I think that this is the most accurate and interesting Kirby game that I have played before. It has every feature that Kirby has including the world where Kirby lives which is a very important feature especially to make the game more precise

Kirby 64 The Crystal Shards Kirby 64 The Crystal Shards Product Image

I'm sorry but this is one of my lease favorites. I don't know if its one of the boss fights or the fact that the graphics look kind of bad, I just don't like it as much as triple deluxe or star allies

This Game had an amazing soundtrack followed with a very interesting story line and wonderful powers and combos. I Thought I had beaten the game when I was 10 then a few years later I started playing again and realized it wasn't over. Just the fact that there is a hidden level that you unlock after you collect all the crystal shards is what tops this as the best Kirby game ever.

My favorite Kirby games are Kirby's Dreamland 2, 3 and 64. They're slighty different from the regular Kirby games, Kirby hasn't hats and the abilities works in a different way. Kirby 64 is the only one from the Dark Matter series in this list so I voted for it, but my favorite is Kirby's Dreamland 3.

Absolutely excellent. Mix abilities, funny storyline, creative gameplay, hidden Shards, fun Mini-games, and the segments where you play as King Dedede. Enough said!

Kirby Triple Deluxe Kirby Triple Deluxe Product Image

Before I start, let me say that this is Not my favorite Kirby game. However, on a list of the "best Kirby games" thus should certainly be higher. I bought this thinking that it was just a mere attempt to recapture the greatness of Return to Dreamland; but to my surprise, it took everything great about return to dreamland and improved it? I never thought HAL could top their console releases, but I am very wrong. Triple Deluxe is Visually the best of any other Kirby game and has very fun bosses. I could go on forever about how great this game is but instead, I will just say that this is my 2nd favorite 3ds game and is a must have for any 3ds owner. Kirby fan or not, this game delivers.

I dislike this game for some of its features for example I dislike the sunstones. there way to easy to find unlike kirby's return to dreamland and the levels are too easy I died like 5 times in this game all in all and the final boss you can cheat your way through with leaves or bell but ice can slide also the final boss is way too easy including the dedede tour one and the extra levels your basicly just doing mini versions of the world levels also the masked dedede is WAY to easy. it takes damage like the mini bosses like Mr. frosty. onestly this is not one of my favorite kirby games or games period.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe is one of the hardest Kirby games out there. Sectonia, Masked Dedede's Revenge, and Dark Meta Knight's Revenge. And worst of all, Soul of Sectonia. I thought I beat her when she suddenly went into phase 2 with max health, and if I didn't have my Maxin Tomato, I would've been "Done For". Great game, and Kirby Fighter's is just awesome.

I think this game should be number 2 on the list! I admit that I have not played this game yet. But I saw lots of videos. I think kirby triple deluxe and kirby returns to dreamland are tied. (I think)

Kirby: Planet Robobot Kirby: Planet Robobot Product Image

It's phenomenal! A perfect game, one of my favorites of all time, for the fantastic Kirby series, and all games ever made. It's got so much content, all of which a blast to play, and the robobot armor is a great new gimmick. It has a great, well developed, story with likable characters and several twists and turns, as well as a rather dark side if you choose to explore it.There's also great music and all around astounding level design. It appeals to series fans with fresh, but still Kirby like enough, game play, and also attracts newcomers to the series. I wasn't a Kirby fan until I saw the reveal trailer at a Nintendo Direct, then my mouth dropped and I got it on release day. After I achieved 100%, I wanted more Kirby to play, and started playing the rest of the series from there. I highly recommend Kirby: Planet Robobot to any 3ds owner, as well as any other person who doesn't own a 3ds, in which case you should get one so you can play this game!

Despite 2016 being considered one of the worst years of all time, Nintendo used this as an opportunity to expand it's gaming community, with two of its biggest franchises getting new main series games: this and Pokemon Sun and Moon. I have never played a Kirby game prior, but now, it's one of my favorite games ever. While giving everyone's favorite pink puffball a giant mech suit may sound like a stupid idea, The Robobot armor is surprisingly fun to use. Heck, it even has the copy ability itself. Every boss is fun, memorable, and replayable (except maybe the 2nd boss) and I love the villains. You should buy this game, as well as Sun and/or Moon, This should be higher! P.S, the Final Boss (Man, Kirby has had lots of awesome final battles lately, first Magalor, then Queen Sectonia, now this?! What will they do next?

Gosh this is the best game I've ever played in my life. It is a game with all kinds of new and original ideas. I mean I would never think of kirby with a robot that can copy abilitys just like kirby. Plus it changes some things from the older games like Clanky woods it's basically a upgraded model of the other tree thing something woods... I don't know. Also remember that queen bug they brought it back but it's a purple clone of it. Netendo wants 2017 to be a great year by sending out the 2 best games of the year Pokémon sun and moon and kirby planet robobot. Who can get bored of games that let you do something after you beat the storyboard. I beat kirby planet robobot over 5 months ago and the only problem is... I can't beat true arena. It lets me be occupied by making me battle all the bosses( not all of them... maby) I already beaten. This game is the best game I've ever played and I wish it was number 1


This was my 2nd 100% game.(also my second 100% Kirby game with Super Star Ultra being my first 100%). I love all the throwbacks in the game. The remixed music is really great, I love how they made a 3D Dark Matter Boss, The Robot Suits are Awesome(my favorite is Mike), All 3 New abilities are awesome, and the new characters are interesting and cool. If the next Kirby game either adds Yo-Yo, The Animal Helpers from Dream Land 3, The Helpers from Super Star, or a 3D Marx fight, I can finally die happy.

Kirby and The Amazing Mirror Kirby and The Amazing Mirror Product Image

Kirby is my fourth favorite video game franchise and my second favorite Nintendo franchise. With that said, I can admit that 4 of the 5 games listed above this one are by all means better. However, Amazing Mirror is my personal favorite for many game related and nostalgic reasons. This is the portable game of my childhood. My friends at school had it too and we would do the multiplayer which was amazing for its time. I loved the concept of exploration and that you could call in other Kirbys on your phone. All the little extras were new to me as well like the spray paint and other cool treasures to collect. Anyway, what I'm getting at is that although this is nowhere near the best, it is my 5th favorite video game of all time and if you were there as it released and shared my excitement you might understand. Otherwise all I can say is that nostalgia played a large role in my vote.

All five games above this are definitely "better" in terms of what makes a game good. Despite that, Amazing Mirror is simply my favorite. It is the portable platformer of my childhood. I was already a huge Kirby fan when this came out who claimed that Kirby's adventure 2 is the best. When I sat down and played the multiplayer with my friends, I was wrong. THIS was the best GBA game I have ever owned. This installment in the Kirby franchise was so amazing to me, I had two copies of the game and played them almost every day for 2 years. And that is why I voted for this game although the series seems to improve with each later release.

This is by far the best Kirby game for Metroid fans; the open maze platform style is fantastic. The multiplayer is absolutely fantastic, but even the solo campaign alone is enough to put this in my number one slot. As I said, hardcore Metroid fans are likely to have a blast, and other players will enjoy it as well.

Amazing Mirror was the GBA game of my childhood. Many of the other Kirby games is just "Beat this Level" continue "Beat this Level" etc. But Kirby and The Amazing Mirror was all about the adventure and the terrible Kirby AIs (Their terrible AI makes the game sooo much more funnier and amazing). This game HAS to be remade.

Kirby's Epic Yarn Kirby's Epic Yarn Product Image

Has an incredible amount of charm and its soundtrack is by far the best of the bunch! It's unique and so much fun! I also love the textured graphics! Calling it too easy is not an excuse to miss this gem, as every Kirby game has been designed to be accessible. In my opinion it's the most memorable and entertaining Kirby game of all time!

This is a really fun platformer with new and fresh ideas. Some are so fun that you wonder why not every game have them.
The music is fantastic and bosses are fun. There is many fun transformations to become. I could go on forever on how great this game is but I will just say that you should buy it. Especially if you have a friend to play with

One of my favourite kirby games second to super star ultra. I love the new mechanics introduced and the story and visuals are just wholesome and cute!

Amazing and cute! An imaginative spin in a game series with lots of imagination is difficult, but this pulls it off perfectly. And, in classic Kirby fashion, the game is easy to finish but actually quite difficult to 100%.

Kirby Squeak Squad Kirby Squeak Squad Product Image

Best music,best boss battles, best story :P, some of the best ability's. While not my favorite ( that would be epic yarn and nightmare in dreamland ) its still one of the best 2D platforms not just on the ds but ever.

I loved the game, but my problem is that the first 2 bosses required no effort, and the final boss was WAY underwhelming. Other than that, great game.

My most favorite Kirby game. :3
Everything about it is great. It's new copy abilities, it's new characters, it's levels, and while the story is heavily controversial, it doesn't seem that bad to me, the story is actually very Kirby-ish in my opinion.
This isn't just my favorite Kirby game though, it is my favorite video game too. :3

So many abilities, so many levels... Love how there are collectibles that affect the gameplay. My first and always favorite Kirby game.

Kirby Nightmare in Dream Land Kirby Nightmare in Dream Land Product Image

Just picked this up a couple days ago. Fairly short, but a nice challenge. Really enjoyed it.

Definitely my 2nd favorite game

Better than the original. awesome!

It's the same as Kirbys Adventure

Kirby's Adventure Kirby's Adventure Product Image

That's my first kirby game and one the best 2D games I played. I'm surprise he's not on this lost.

This should be at least top 2. Ah, the 90s...

Seriously, this game has super awesome graphics!

This game was quite revolutionary. Easygoing, but that's usually how I like my Kirby.

This is the only kirby game I have played and its really fun

The Contenders
Kirby's Dream Land 3 Kirby's Dream Land 3 Product Image

Yes this was the best of the original 3.

This is my favorite

It's so underrated

My first game..

Kirby Super Star Kirby Super Star Product Image

Why is this not number one? It is easily the best Kirby game of all time, and people deserve to know that. Nobody wants to scroll down all the way to number 14 to see how good this game is. This deserves to be number one.

Even though Marx Soul has the hardest boss I've ever faced, it's still a fun game to play with your friends. I'd give it 7.2 out of 10.

Although Kirby Super Star Ultra is better, Kirby Super Star still deserves some credit for the original concept.

All I know about it is that it has the Great Cave Offensive, but I can tell it rocks

Kirby's Dreamland 2 Kirby's Dreamland 2 Product Image

If I got to make a remake any game, it would be this one. that's right, its over Metroid II, Majora's Mask and Kirby 64. It's so good... I think a Wii you release would be perfect.

Why is this game not in the top 5s?! This game is a good old game.

This is a very good game try it

It is really fun to play

Kirby Mass Attack Kirby Mass Attack Product Image

By far the most underrated Kirby game. Truly a fantastic game, one that showcased the DS's touch screen perfectly! Soundtrack was catchy and memorable, gameplay was ridiculously fun. It's just a really great game that did not get the attention it deserved.

Excellent game. Not Kirby's best, but it's very fun and has plenty of material. Not to mention they finally brought Marx back as a cameo!

My 7th favorite DS game. 10 Kirbys, 5 Worlds. Huff... Enough said.

"More Kirby's. More Power,." enough said.

Kirby Air Ride Kirby Air Ride Product Image

Kirby Air Ride is an incredibly easy to get-into-and-play experience that is loads of fun, especially with friends. City Trial in particular, and the race to assemble one of the two Legendary Machines,occupied me and my friends for days, whether it was playing alone or playing together.

This is my favorite kirby game ever! It has awesome graphics and really cool race tracks and so many things to do! I highly reccomend this game to people who like racing games and Kirby games!

Dyna blade is pretty awesome in this game, this game just makes me want a real 3D Kirby. However this game is quite groovy and the first Kirby game I played... 12/14.26

This game is very underrated, critics call it the worst Kirby game of all time, but honestly its one of the best!

Kirby Star Allies Kirby Star Allies Product Image

Kirby: Star Allies may be the easiest Kirby game, but that's the point. Kirby games aren't supposed to be hard (although it would be nice to get like a difficulty bar to change the difficulty), instead they're suppose to be a fun game with an interesting story. And Star Allies is the funnest game out of the series, and while it's doesn't have the greatest story (that goes to Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards), it's still entertaining.
Really, I believe Star Allies is HAL's way of showing us how far they've come over the years. From Kirby's Dream Land on the GameBoy, to Star Allies on the Switch, the Kirby series has grown in it's 26 years of lifetime, with tons of iconic characters, and it shows no sign of stopping.
And gaining the ability to play as the many characters of the series even ups the fun.
So yeah, it's really easy, but it's still a fun game to play over and over again, and it the Kirby series in a whole will get even better in years to come.

This list is quite frustrating. Star Allies isn't any more easy than any other game on this list, every single kirby game is easy (and that's not a bad thing). Challenge is always introduced in alternate modes and I like it that way. Star allies is nostalgia from beginning to end and the love hal has for this series has never been more evident and on front display. The fact that epic yarn is rated as better on this list is insanity. We all have differing opinions, I get that, but Star Allies is the best thing to happen to Kirby in many many years. Id put epic yarn in last place. I do not hate it, but its close.

when I first saw this list, I didn't have the game. now I do, and I love it! it took me at least 10 hours to beat it, but after I beat void termina and the fact that I was regular kirby, it felt good.

Since this game barely came out I wont kill everyone because its only number 21. However, I sincerely hope it will be higher some years later, because its one of my favorite games of all time. The graphism are the best on the switch right now, and the gameplay is basically return to dreamland on steroids, the steroids of question being the copy ability mixing. The level design is very strong and the side quests are fair (I mean there is literally only one level where I needed internet). Plus they brought back some of my favorite abilities like beetle, water and of course, yoyo and even powers I didn't care now came back more powerful than ever like supplex and broom. The arena have now 8 levels of difficulty and there is a mode where you play the adventure with helpers (ma boi gim is awesome).The only bad parts about this game is that some abilities are not back (I mean why didn't they put archer? I want my flame arows hal! ) but even then I can say the same about every game after ...more

Kirby's Dream Land Kirby's Dream Land Product Image

This is definitely the first game you should play if you think you want to get into the series. This is my first Kirby game and I absolutely loved it!

Aged badly in my opinion. It wasn't bad, it was just too easy. I mean, I understand since it's meant to be for beginners, but it took two seconds..

It's too easy, short and simplistic compared to later games, but it's still fun.

Well, the lack of power ups makes the game a less stressful play for me

Kirby Canvas Curse Kirby Canvas Curse Product Image

All I have to say is, epic levels, epic items and epic music & epic bosses. Also, Giygas makes a return when you defeated him on Earthbound. That's the only thing I don't like on the game. Giygas making a return. Everything else is excellent. I'd give it 9 out of 10.

What's wrong with KCC? Maybe this Kirby game isn't usual, but it was a decent idea how Kirby had to roll like a ball throughout his whole adventure, collecting Medals and stuff. Why is it so low on this list? Whatever.

Kirby's Dream Collection Kirby's Dream Collection Product Image

I don't qualify this for one of the best games, since it's a collection rather than a main game. Regardless, this gets credit for giving me access to excellent games like the Dream Land Trilogy, Kirby's Adventure, Kirby 64, and Super Star. Also liked the challenge stages.

the intro cutscene is great, the fact that magalor is back and apologizes for trying to destroy kirby is great, and they have the smash ability

This game is nice but you would expect more games

This game deserves to be at least top 5.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse Kirby and the Rainbow Curse Product Image

This Game Is My Second Kirby Game To The Series I Have Watched And Listen To The Soundtracks In August 2017. I Love This Game So Much, The Story Is Just Like Kirby's Return To Dream Land Story And The Soundtracks Is Amazing Even Improved From Kirby Triple Deluxe. I Voted This Game To Be My Top 3 Of The Kirby Series Music Soundtracks Alongside Kirby's Return To Dream Land And Kirby Star Allies. I Would Thought That This Game Is A Sequel To Kirby's Return To Dream Land Since It Also Has 'Four Player Multiplayer' / 'Challenge Stages' / 'Subgames' And 'Seven Levels' In The Whole Game, Making It One Of The Longest Gameplay Walkthrough In The Kirby Series With The Second Largest Kirby Series Music Soundtracks Behind Kirby Star Allies And Kirby's Return To Dream Land. Kirby's Return To Dream Land And Kirby And The Rainbow Curse Shares Its Simliar 1) Four Player Co-up 2) Challenge Stages 3) Storyline Gameplay And 4) Seven Levels. This Game Was Also My Debut To The Kirby Series In 2017 ...more

Absolutely love this game, can't believe it's so low. Great story, unique gameplay, fantastic graphics, enticing collectibles, and best of all, an utterly amazing soundtrack.

Its still going to be REALLY good. (Well, from the looks of the trailer. )

Bes kirby game for music by far. Also best final boss theme in Mario and kirby put together!

Kirby's Dream Course Kirby's Dream Course Product Image

This game needs a sequel.

A great old game

Kirby Block Ball Kirby Block Ball Product Image

Game boy is epic u idiot.

Super Kirby Clash

some bosses (bonkers, gigant edge, nightmare) have been upgraded into more powerful versions of them (shock bonkers, ignite edge, paralel nightmare).

this was cool and the first "final boss" was amazing

Way better than Team Kirby Clash Deluxe!

Kirby Tilt N' Tumble Kirby Tilt N' Tumble Product Image

This game is ridiculously fun to play and everyone how have a Gameboy Colour should buy it.

I remember the cartridge was so pink and weird ^_^

This game was my second kirby games the first was avalanche
This game was so challenging I once got so mad I threw my gameboy so hard it was in pieces anyway great games

Kirby & the Amazing Mirror Kirby & the Amazing Mirror Product Image

I personally think this is one of the best kirby games ever made but that's just my opinion I mean The world is more open than any other kirby game which I really enjoyed the change in style. The bosses are great and the game isn't to easy nor to hard which allows players from all ages to play and have a fun experience but that's just my opinion :3 you can always leave yours as well.

Underrated Just because it's a game boy advance game...such A deception to you underraters

Uh...I think this is already on the list...

This game was already on the list...
