Top 10 Best Kirby Games

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

The music is god-like, the gameplay is incredible and the villain is an actually good twist villain(unlike a specific film studio making movies with twist villains).

This is my second favorite Kirby game. It's got so much! 4-player, Super abilities and Magolor, who is portrayed as the Kirby series' most powerful villain. Get this game, you will love it!

(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

(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.

2 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!

Always the best. I loved the SNES version a lot. The only thing I like the SNES version more is the End Credits song from Milky Way Wishes. I mean the DS version is great, but the remix of the credits music just didn't feel like I remembered as a kid. The older version of the music is more emotional.

SPOILER WARNING --
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

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

3 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.

This is my favorite Kirby game, and is portrayed as one of the best Kirby games in history. This should be rank 2 or even 1. It's got so many secrets.

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.

Best Kirby game best plattformer and best game of all time. Despite having less game modes than super star ultra Kirby Triple Deluxe is still 10 times better and is the definitive version of Kirby if you don't have a 3ds go get one right now with your copy of the game. This is the best game ever.

4 Kirby: Planet Robobot Kirby: Planet Robobot Product Image

This was such a fresh new idea for HAL and Nintendo. I loved every bit of this game. When this game was introduced, I thought, "This is gonna be similar to the Sonic or Mega Man series." and it turns out I was wrong. The Robobot Armor was such a great feature and gimmick, as well as a story that is really unique to the Kirby franchise. Planet Popstar is now mechanized, and it's up to Kirby to stop the rampant invasion of new technology, while making most robots your friends. Plus, new copy abilities also appear, such as Doctor and Poison. I love this game to bits, and I still play it to this day. There, I said it.

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?

This is possibly my favorite Kirby Game of all time. The new animations that weren't shown, like a diagonal background (ex. 1-4), the new bosses, the new Soul Battle (I haven't gotten to the end of the True Arena yet), and possibly the new, powerful abilities. I also like the new stickers. If all the games of Kirby were lined up against a wall and I could play what I wanted for a whole day, I would choose this game. This game makes me like Kirby even more than before.

5 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!

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

This is the best Gameboy Advance Kirby games. It's how Kirby got his other 3 puffball pals! There are so many secrets, and unlike other games, this one will take you 3 days or more to complete, while others you can finish in less than a day.

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.

7 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

Saying the game was too easy is no excuse as *every* Kirby game is too easy. For me, a game with a lot of charm goes a long way and this game has a TON of charm. It boggles my mind how this isn't even in the top 5. I find this game is the most fun and memorable game in the series.

I remember renting this game from Blockbuster a long time ago, back when I was probably 7 or 8, maybe 9. I played through the first 2 "worlds" before I returned it, and it literally had a profound effect on my childhood. Everything from the beautiful music to the super unique graphics, it has always stuck with me. Some day, I will find this game and finish it. When I do, a piece of my childhood will be complete. ❤️

8 Kirby Squeak Squad Kirby Squeak Squad Product Image

Kirby Squeak Squad is kind of like the underdog of the main series Kirby games. For instance, it has a weak story and it's shorter than most Kirby games. But I give this one a pass. Its gameplay is fun and addicting, the Animal powerup is one of the best Kirby powerups and the soundtrack has its highlights, like Here Comes The Squeaks, a jazzy tune fit for Daroach. If you look up the song on YouTube, you would get tons of Chicago-style jazz rock versions of the theme. It's an underrated gem of the DS, and it's a massive shame it doesn't get any recognition.

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.

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

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.

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

This is the first Kirby game I played so it's one of my favorites, although it's not so long (I finished it in 3 hours, 100% Normal Mode and another 6 hours for 100% Extra Mode). But Meta Knightmare sub-game is cool.

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

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

10 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 best Kirby game of all time.

The Contenders
11 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..

12 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.

OMG! This is so good! The introduction to Marx, helper, Bandana Dee, and so much more.

13 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.

It is really fun to play

14 Kirby Mass Attack Kirby Mass Attack Product Image

There are already plenty of comments discussing how great this game is, and I'm in full agreement with them. This game is classic, and it's one I find myself coming back to whenever I have nothing else to do.

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!

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

15 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!

16 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.

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

It's a good game with amazing graphics. I don't actually have the game but I've played through(most of) it with my friends on multiplayer. I recommend it. Let's not forget everyone who's screaming " MORPHO KNIGHT" I'm over here saying "YES my helpers are BACK! "
Plus Marx is too, and I know most people in this fandom have wanted that so much...

17 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.

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

18 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.

This game deserves to be at least top 5.

19 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.

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

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.

This game hasn't even been released yet! (At the time of this comment) Why are people voting for it?

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

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

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

This game needs a sequel.

A great old game

22 Super Kirby Clash
23 Kirby Block Ball Kirby Block Ball Product Image
24 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.

25 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...
