Top 10 Best Kirby Games

The Top Ten

1 Kirby's Return to Dream Land

You've seen all the other fun things in the other past Kirby games, well, this has all of your favorite Kirby games into one. This game is not only my favorite Kirby game, but also one of my favorite video games ever.

Great game and really fun! It is a good investment. Also who put New Super Mario Bros on here? It doesn't have kirby.

This kirby game is the best. Nintendo has been going downhill, but kirby shows up showing that not everything is bad with Nintendo.

First Kirby game I ever played. Beat it when I was 6. Still love it to this day and Kirby being my FAVORITE Nintendo character ever!

2 Kirby Super Star Ultra

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.

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! - bugger

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

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

3 Kirby 64 The Crystal Shards

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!

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.

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

4 Kirby Triple Deluxe

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 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) - kirbyfan

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.

Queen Sectonia has got to be one of the scariest and coolest looking villains of all time.

5 Kirby and The Amazing Mirror

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.

It’s... amazing

6 Kirby: Planet Robobot

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?

It did everything Triple Deluxe did, and better! While the extra modes aren't special, the memorable characters make this one one of the best.

This is aswome

7 Kirby's Epic Yarn

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!

The only problem I had with this game is that most of the bosses where said to be easy.

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%.

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.

8 Kirby Squeak Squad

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

First and Best kirby game I eve played

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. - Garythesnail

I like the sweek boss theme

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

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

Definitely my 2nd favorite game

The title is too scary for me! 😥😥

10 Kirby's Adventure

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

Seriously, this game has super awesome graphics!

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

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

First platform game that has save feature in nes

The Newcomers

? 3D Classics Kirby's Adventure

I like the 3d effect

? Kirby Invaders from the Dark

A fan game. It isn't the best kirby game, butt it's funny

The Contenders

11 Kirby's Dream Land 3

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

My first game..

6 animals, great boss fights, catchy music, etc. - Garythesnail

ZERO - DCfnaf

12 Kirby Super Star

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.

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.

Why the hell is this no. 15?

only 12?

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

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.

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

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

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

This game was my childhood! Its really simple but its one of the most fun games of all time.

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.

Even though I'm not a Kirby fan, I still enjoy this game. You can make your enemies, friends and it's also a good multiplayer game and has a good story. This game is probably going to make ma a kirby fan and make me play the other ones just because it's so fun.

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

Seriously. Why is this game not number one, please change the list.

17 Kirby's Dream Land

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.. - DCfnaf

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

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

18 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 deserves to be at least top 5.

This game is nice but you would expect more games

19 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

20 Kirby's Dream Course

This game needs a sequel.

A great old game

21 Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

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

This game is really fun

Kind of boring and hard.

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

22 Kirby Block Ball
23 Kirby Tilt N' Tumble

24 Kirby & the Amazing Mirror

This game was already on the list...

I don't know why I love this game

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

25 Team Kirby Clash Deluxe

Microtransagolor. Well it’s a free game... what did you expect?

26 Kirby's Avalanche

Just a great casual play that requires some strategy

27 Kirby Fighters Deluxe

Not my favorite, but it is good and deserves a higher spot.

Epic fighting game

28 Kirby Switch

It's still not out (at the time I said this) and its current name is Kirby: Star Allies. Aside from that, I do believe the game is gonna be great.

29 Kirby Clash Deluxe

This is a sub-game on Kirby Planet Robobot... It was fun.😊

No it's a standalone game. it's its own game released on eshop,based on team kirby clash. - Villainnumberone

30 Kirby's Pinball Land
31 Dedede's Drum Dash Deluxe

This is the only Kirby game so far that stars Dedede as the main character.

Best game ever

32 Kirby’s Toy Box

Because nobody added this I am going to

33 Kirby's Star Stacker
34 Kirby's Blowout Blast

I can't believe you can finally play in 3D.

35 Kirby Battle Royale
