Top 10 Best Kirby Games

The Top Ten

1 Kirby's Return to Dream Land

(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

It was delayed, cancelled, and continued several times, and it was great! (However, I wonder what this would have been without the delays...)


Not only is this my favorite kirby game or favorite wii game, but my favorite game of all time. there is nothing I hate about this game. I will always come and play this game

2 Kirby Super Star Ultra

Amazing! - Pokemonfan10

The greatest ds game and best kirby game. Love this game to bits. It's so amazing!

By far the greatest Kirby game ever. An epic upgrade from Kirby Superstar, adding better sprites, game soundtrack, new minigames, and an increased story. Also includes 3 of my most favorite boss fights ever. Masked Dedede, Galacta Knight, and Marx's Soul. - KeyboardHero

As much as I love the Super Nintendo, I find this version better than the original. The original is great too, but this one has a few more games, including ones that use the Touch Screen. Probably my favorite DS game.

3 Kirby 64 The Crystal Shards

This is the best Kirby game in my opinion

This is the 2nd best Kirby game. Although if I could vote just City Trial, I'd vote that.

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.

The levels, the boss fights, the ability to mix powers was amazing! It had a nice little story too with great characters!

This game rocks!

5 Kirby: Planet Robobot


Too cool to be this low because it has a type of star fox attack for the final battle and the music is perfect and it has 3 seacret bosses.

This is aswome

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!

6 Kirby and The Amazing Mirror

Classic and memorable ost's (especially candy constellation)

Fun gameplay, really challenging, and amazing OST. Need I say more?

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.

7 Kirby's Epic Yarn

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!

Such an adorable game, yet so unforgiving when it comes to being hit. When hit, you don't exactly take damage like usual, you instead...

Anyways, even with the world being made up of Yarn it still feels real. - Qryzx

People complain that this game is too easy, and that's the point. This is supposed to be a casual, fun game with little challenge so yuo can just sit back and enjoy it instead of yelling at the screen.

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!

8 Kirby Squeak Squad

I like the sweek boss theme

Mechanic kracko is hard! Only tornado or hi-jump can beat him.

This should be #2 ( I must agree Return to Dreamland is better )

9 Kirby Nightmare in Dream Land

This game is so nostalgic for me, from the awesome soundtrack, the cute graphics, to just everything, I LOVE this game

It's the same as Kirbys Adventure

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

Definitely my 2nd favorite game

10 Kirby's Adventure

Nah this needs star allies in its spot

11 Kirby's Dream Land 3

It's so underrated

This is my favorite

Yes this was the best of the original 3. - DCfnaf

My first game..

12 Kirby Super Star

All I know about it is that it has the Great Cave Offensive, but I can tell it rocks - MarioBros11

only 12?

It's amazing but not the best. - ChikoritaDude21

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

13 Kirby's Dreamland 2

It is really fun to play

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.

This is a very good game try it

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

14 Kirby Mass Attack

My first kirby game

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

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! - Garythesnail

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.

15 Kirby Air Ride

Well, you get to race with your friends and get to do anything. Well, not anything, but a lot of things.

I have no idea why I love this game it's my second or third favorite game for GameCube and why is there no sequel

My favorite kirby game by far, from racing to just flying around with your friends, I don't know why but I love it 10/10

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.

16 Kirby Star Allies

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. - jonsoko


I love it. It's the one that introduced me to Kirby and made me crazy about him.

17 Kirby's Dream Land

Wasn't this the first Kirby? - MarioBros11

It aged poorly, but it's still kinda fun. - TheDelBel

This game is just fun, and that’s all a Kirby game needs to be.

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!

18 Kirby Canvas Curse

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. - RB-Number1-fan

19 Kirby's Dream Collection


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. - Garythesnail

This game is nice but you would expect more games

This game deserves to be at least top 5.

20 Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

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.

It's got claymation Kirby. How is this only 20. - MarioBros11

Bruh, this is the most underrated game I have ever seen - B1ueNew

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

27 Kirby Switch
