Cameo Appearances

Waddle Dee's cycloptic relative has more than just better eyesight, as he can use his giant eye to shoot a trail of beams in front of him! Some only use this power periodically, but others are absolutely nuts about it.

Arcana

One thing this early Zelda title is known for is its heap of cameo appearances of characters from all kinds of other games. This includes Super Mario enemies, a character from the obscure "The Frog for Whom the Bell Tolls," and Kirby himself! Well, sort of. An enemy called the "Anti-Kirby" appears in the seventh dungeon, Eagle's Tower, and much like its Dream Land counterpart, will happily bounce about and try to inhale Link when he gets too close.

Naturally, Anti-Kirby appears in the enhanced Game Boy Color version, Link's Awakening DX, but is brought back to life in the Nintendo Switch remake of the game, too!

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

These basic enemies love to trot around and mind their own businesses. You'll usually find them among the crowd, but sometimes they'll be in a hurry to run you over!

Stunt Race FX

Sometimes Kirby can be a bit blinded by food and not realize that they can also be dangerous. Apples have hard exteriors, which make for the perfect weapon. That is, if you're a tiny clown or a tree.

EarthBound

Sometimes Kirby can be a bit blinded by food and not realize that they can also be dangerous. Apples have hard exteriors, which make for the perfect weapon. That is, if you're a tiny clown or a tree.

Picross Volume 3

Look at that smile! These guys must love life, because you won't se any who aren't skipping around happily. Sometimes you'll find one balancing on a Maxim Tomato, and as delicious as they look, eat the Poppy jockey first if you don't want it to splat!

Pokémon Stadium 2

Kirby makes an appearance as a movie star in this Game Boy Advance RPG! In their search for the missing Beanstar pieces, Mario and Luigi reach the Yoshi Theater. In the main lobby of the building, a poster for the movie "Kirby Story" is front and center, alongside posters of Wario and The Legendary Stafy movies! While the movie itself isn't able to be seen, it makes you wonder what it would be like. Is it an animated comedy? Or a live-action revival? ...Maybe it's not such a good idea to think about after all.

While the game has been remade on Nintendo 3DS, sadly none of the cameos have been brought over.

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

As squishy as they may look, Sparkies don't act kindly to those who want to squeeze them. Get in their way and their sheer anger will put up a fierce electric barrier around them.

Pokémon Diamond & Pearl

Sometimes Kirby can be a bit blinded by food and not realize that they can also be dangerous. Apples have hard exteriors, which make for the perfect weapon. That is, if you're a tiny clown or a tree.

Mario Kart 8

True to their name, Hot Heads' heads are hot, which is quite curious because of their friendly demeanor. They can breathe fire up close, or shoot fireballs to warn anyone who threatens them from afar.

Picross 3D Round 2

Sometimes Kirby can be a bit blinded by food and not realize that they can also be dangerous. Apples have hard exteriors, which make for the perfect weapon. That is, if you're a tiny clown or a tree.

Super Mario Maker

Sometimes Kirby can be a bit blinded by food and not realize that they can also be dangerous. Apples have hard exteriors, which make for the perfect weapon. That is, if you're a tiny clown or a tree.

BYE-BYE BOXBOY!

Sometimes Kirby can be a bit blinded by food and not realize that they can also be dangerous. Apples have hard exteriors, which make for the perfect weapon. That is, if you're a tiny clown or a tree.
