Kirby lives on the rainbow islands of Dream Land. The rainbows that connect the
islands have been stolen by the evil Dark Matter! Dark Matter has taken control
of King Dedede and wants to turn Dream Land into a dark world. With the help of
three friends, Kirby sets out on his latest quest to save Dream Land.

Special powers
Some enemies have special powers. By swallowing those enemies, Kirby can copy
their powers. Inhale the enemy, then press Down on the +Control Pad to copy
their powers. Use the copied power by pressing the B Button.

'B' Inhale -- 'Down' Swallow -- 'B' Kirby can now use the special power!

What are the special powers?
* Parasol *     * Burning *     * Needle *      * Spark *
* Ice *         * Stone *       * Cutter *

* Kirby can take his special powers and friends to other stages.
* Kirby loses his special powers when he gets hit. He can get the power back if
he swallows the star before it disappears.
Page 11

Other Offensive Weapons
* Inhale -- Exhale
Press the B Button once to inhale enemies or blocks and again to spit them out.
(There are some enemies that Kirby cannot swallow or cannot be defeated.) If
Kirby swallows more than two enemies or blocks at the same time, his weapon will
be more powerful than ever!

* Air / Water gun
You can use either of these weapons by pressing the B Button, although they're
not as powerful as spitting stars.

Rick - Rick the hamster carries Kirby on his shoulders.
Rick doesn't slip on ice!

Kine - Kine the fish is a great swimmer.
With Kine, Kirby can swallow while in water.
Page 13

Coo - Coo the owl, can help Kirby get to those hard-to-reach places. When he has
special powers, watch out!
While with Coo, Kirby can't swallow and fly at the same time.

Defeat the mini-boss who is on guard. When the friend comes out of the bag, you
can go with him. When the friend's life meter runs out, he'll disappear, but you
can continue the game. In some cases, it's better to let your friends go.

island if he's missing a drop.
