Kirby Fighters Deluxe is an expanded version of the Kirby Fighters subgame from Kirby: Triple Deluxe released as a standalone game through the Nintendo 3DS eShop. It's a platform fighter that shares some gameplay elements with the Super Smash Bros. series, but with some good ol' Kirby VS. Kirby VS. Kirby VS. Kirby action. It later got a sequel for the Nintendo Switch under the name of Kirby Fighters 2 .

Unused Animations

Most enemies and characters have all of their animations (including unused ones) returning from Kirby: Triple Deluxe. Only new unused animations will be documented.

Dyna Blade

Dyna Blade has a test animation titled "TopL" that consists of her hovering slowly in a default stance. The result is very... frightening.

Empty Debug Scripts

Found in RomFS/mint/Fight.bin.cmp, two Mint debug scripts are mentioned under Scn.Fight.Debug, called "DamageMonitor" and "GeneralDrawer", but they're completely empty. Aditionally, one more empty script is mentioned in Scn.Fight, called "DebugFightSettingProxy".

Bubbly Clouds

The beautiful space background corresponding to Bubbly Clouds extends a lot vertically and horizontally.
