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.

I haven't played it yet but I saw videos and I love it

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

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 - Gh_player

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.

Really cool level design and some depth for completionists an innovative Kirby game.

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

Awesome Kirby game, should be number 1 in my opinion!

I Love this game I was just playing it today

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.

All I can say is this game was gucci

6 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%.

The Music..Oh my god the music...

7 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

This game is great

8 Kirby: Planet Robobot

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.

One of the best kirby games out there. Tons of modes, a lot of replay value, addicting gameplay, amazing music, and great graphics. This is worth it.

It's only the best fanservice you can ask for from a Kirby game, with a great addition to normal play, the best ability pool in the franchise, and pretty much everything else done to perfection with utmost care. Plus some great new abilites (one even referencing a great RPG we know and love).

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

Better than the original. awesome! - DCfnaf

10 Kirby's Adventure

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

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. - Garythesnail

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

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's Dreamland 2

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.

13 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.

14 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?

15 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.

Kirby Mass attack aka. THE BEST KIRBY EVER. The best soundtrack, awesome story, and fun minigames

16 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. - drdevil

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

17 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

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.

19 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.

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