Kirby's Dream Buffet is the spiritual succesor to Kirby Super Star's Gourmet Race. Kirby and his colorful friends must eat strawberries, race to the finish, and crush some scales. May the chunkiest Kirby win!

Unused Test Colors

In RomFS\gfx\Actor\Chara\Kirby\Base\Model.bfres.cmp, there are unused param values that can be found, which are the colors for Kirby's foot, cheeck, eye, and body. These are not the values the game uses for Kirby Pink. These are more likely test colors as other values that change how Kirby looks such as Wet are present.

Unused Graphics

In RomFS\gfx\Actor\Chara\Kirby\Collection\Adeleine\Hat\Model.bfres.cmp, many of Ribbon's expressions from Kirby Star Allies can be found. While Ribbon is part of the Adeleine costume, she only uses three textures for a blink animation.

Unused Animations


Ribbon also has an unused animation titled PosAnim, where she moves a bit to the side.

Hi-Jump Kirby has an idle animation titled Wait, where Kirby bobs up and down slightly. This cannot happen in-game because there is no situation where Hi-Jump can be left idle, since it goes right to the jumping action when attacking.

Unused Scene Data

The FDG archive, which is located in RomFS/fdg/Archive.bin.cmp, has some asset preload data that doesn't get used in the game due to being related to Debug elements that got removed before release.
