Kirby, our hero, makes his home in Dream Land, which is located on PopStar.
PopStar is a small, peaceful planet at the edge of a vast universe.

One day, Kirby and Gooey went fishing. Birds were singing. The sun was
shining. It was such a nice day that they felt more like napping than
----- Page 3 -----

As Kirby and Gooey relaxed, they noticed a black, cloud-like object appear in
the PopStar sky!

The black object started to spit out small clouds. These clouds were
scattered everywhere.

Just then, Coo appeared, looking panicked. "Hurry, Kirby!" he said.
"PopStar's in BIG trouble!"

do terrible things!

Now, Kirby and his friends have left to get rid of these strange clouds and
save PopStar!

Matter, he doesn't have an evil spirit.

Attack Rule No. 1 - Basic Attack

On the ground...
Y 1. Press the Y Button to inhale --> Y 2. Press the Y Button to spit out
[image - Kirby inhaling a baddie] [image - Kirby spitting out a star]

When Kirby spits out an enemy or block, it will appear as a star. Make sure
to aim the star at an enemy! If Kirby inhales more than two enemies or
objects at the same time, they become a powerful piercing bullet!

I can only inhale one at a time. [image - Gooey inhaling a baddie]

In the air...
Kirby can spit out an air bullet by pressing the Y Button. It's not as
powerful as a star.
[image - Kirby spitting out an air bullet]

Under water
[image - Kirby spitting out water bullets]
Kirby spits out a water bullet by pressing the Y Button, but it's not as
powerful as a star.

I can attack the same way under water and on the ground. [image - Gooey

----- Page 16 -----

Attack Rule No. 2 - Steal enemy abilities. Copy eight different abilities!

Copying abilities
You can inhale an enemy with a special ability and make that ability yours.

For example, if you swallow these enemies
KeKe Rocky Waddledee
[image - cute li'l witch] [image - rock creature] [image - looks like Rocky, but fuzzy and reddish]
Clean Stone No special abilities
[image - Kirby holding broom] [image - Kirby as a rock] [image - blank gray circle]

How to Copy

[image - Kirby inhaling a fire creature]
2. Swallow it ( | on the + Control Pad or the A Button).

3. Copy complete

3. Broom [image - Kirby sweeping with broom] 7. Parasol [image - Kirby floating with parasol]
4. Cutter [image - Kriby throwing cutter] 8. Spark [image - Kirby electrified]

If Kirby takes too much damage, or if you press SELECT, Kirby will lose the copied ability. Swallow the star that appears to recover the ability.

DAMAGE! [image - Kirby losing a star]

Attack Rule No. 3 - Never underestimate the power of a friend!

Press the X Button when Kirby is near a friend to unite them. Keep in mind that you can only unite with one friend. Kirby and Gooey cannot unite at the same time.

How to Unite/Release
