This Is What Happens When You Play as Kirby in Guest Star Mode – Kirby Star Allies Ultimate Glitch

Kirby is not available to play as in guest star mode unless you use a glitch in Kirby star allies. This glitch is similar to the Master Hand glitch in Super smash bros melee so this sometimes makes me think it’s an easter egg, but it’s probably not.

If you tap between the “New Game” and “Best Time buttons” on your Nintendo switch controller, you’ll reach a new screen and get Kirby as a playable character.

It seems to work best if you touch the outline directly below the “new game” button. You’ll know it works when it says “Guest Star Kirby”.

List of Kirby Star Allies Glitches in Guest star mode as Kirby:
When you pause the game as Kirby you will get a few Japanese texts that say Not Set.

Kirby gets to appear in Galacta Knight’s cutscene.

Kirby does jump into the audience section when you complete guest star mode.

The game assigns a random title to Kirby (with no ability) each time you view his ending credit via the movie scene selection.

He has his own hidden leaderboard.

I’m not sure if Kirby is overwriting the helper’s place in the crowd… the only way to find out is if I beat the game with every helper and who knows what might happen after that. Be careful if you attempt this glitch.

I will post a full walkthrough as Kirby in guest star mode later on today.

Update: I beat guest star mode again using meta knight and kirby wasn’t saved in the audience section, proof: www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qxEdJ8h3rs

    • you mean dedede, bandana dee and meta knight? you just have to play trough guest star once and they will be unlocked

      Reply
  1. in return if main story can let (example:dedede) replace kirby

    Reply
  2. They might’ve wanted to add Kirby as an unlockable character but scrapped it and just left his (half developed) code there for some unknown reason. Maybe they were too lazy, they couldn’t as Kirby was locked into the code or Kirby had a function programmed that is used and if he was removed then the game would break etc.

    Reply
    • It would seem stupid of they to add Kirby in this mode as it is like Meta Nightmare and Dedede Tour.
      But probably as like it says in the description, as the game getting confused about what character load, it loads Kirby because it is probably the first in the data files as Master Hand did in Melee.

      Reply
    • I prefer Memes Are love's explanation, personally.

      To elaborate, since the levels of Guest Star are lifted straight from the story mode, they probably don't need to do much. My guess was that Kirby was used to test the game mode's functionality, then the option to choose him was removed once they moved on to testing specific characters.

      What I think is that the selection menu sets up the game by pulling data straight from a file, and the bug simply forced the game to load Kirby's file, since it is probably listed as the first character file there. This explains why Kirby works entirely as intended in every case except the character description on the pause menu (which changes depending on which game-mode you're playing. Kirby wasn't meant to play here, so he doesn't have one here.) and the end-credits title (which thanks to a memory error, selected Knuckle-Joe's instead, since Kirby does not have an official Guest Star Logo).

      Reply
    • +Kurenai Opinion, mate.
      I don't think this game was rushed, but if you do, that's alright by me, just don't state it as fact.

      Reply
    • Won't Tell

      No proof that he was used as a placeholder for the mode before they tested how it worked with the friend characters.

      Kirby probably shares data with the other playable characters; which one you play as simply gets swapped out according to an internal value of some sort. Kirby's the default, as he is within all the other Kirby games that allows the use of alternate player characters within multiple roles (i.e. Battle Royal, Air Ride, Return to Dreamland). In other words, Kirby's in character slot 0, the very first character slot.

      Since not choosing a character when the game goes into an incorrect state like this results in the character slot not being altered as it should, it chooses slot 0, Kirby, as the player character for the mode. What's even more surprising here is that the game actually has failsafes that prevent the game from not functioning properly should Kirby be somehow chosen for this mode. These failsafes allow the game to keep on going as intended, regardless.

      (By the way, if memory errors really were the cause of the random character titles, the game would crash; this isn't like earlier Nintendo consoles, where the system would actually allow invalid data to be accessed.)

  3. Off topic maybe, but I only just noticed with this video that you can hear the three generals grunting in pain during the second half of Hyness' fight…

    Reply
    • well, they are totally unable to do anything but think or grunt. Yeah, they're almost dead, and Hyness using them would be purging the general's power into they're limits. (y m i doing dis)

      Reply
    • GameStudioRider considering they sound like they are in a lot of pain it practically sounds like they are getting tortured

      Kirby….you know. FOR KIDS

      Reply
    • Well from what it looks like he absorb the Life Energy of all three of them to fight rendering them practically dead or just barely alive so he's still able to use there elemental essence to his own advantage

      Most savage kirby villan to date ….

      Reply
  4. …wait…you guys DO realize this might mean we will get Kirby as a guest star, allowing for 4 play Kirby action in the main story, right?

    Reply
  5. I wonder if they plan to make Kirbies available as Dream Friends for Players 2-4 like in Return to Dreamland.

  6. Kirby's power to shoot starts : OVERPOWERED. Aka ITS OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAANDS
    Kirby's cuteness level : ITS OVER NINE THOUSAAAAANDS
    Kirby's gender : … Um…? ITS A BOY. No it's a girl…
    No, it's a Kirby.

    Reply
    • ThunderBladeTHX
      Well I knew he was confirmed as a boy in US, but I didn't knew it was genderless in Japan, then, if it's in JAPAN he is genderless, then I still believe that his gender is still unkwown

      Reply
    • They only used he because English doesn't have a proper gender neutral pronoun, Same with Samus when the fact She is id girl is a secret, they just default to male pronouns unless the game calls for something else.

  7. My first reaction to Morpho Knight: "Did a BUTTERFLY really just absorb Galacta Knight!?"

    Reply
  8. For someone that took out/fused with/is a stronger form of Galacta Knight, Morpho Knight is a wimp. Hope he's redone better in a future game.

    Reply
    • K Q Actually if you look the description of galacta in the ultimate choice it says that this butterfly is one Eternal Judge od the galaxy or something, so basically that's ANOTHER galacta knight, an heroic one that defies kirby

      Reply
    • He's only a wimp cause you have 3 other characters helping you out and the bosses dont get extra health during co op like in return to dreamland

      Reply
    • Majin Inkling Press just barely below New Game. On the frame, slightly left of the center, I feel seems to work the best.

      Reply
    • You can also use the touch screen on the switch.

      pressing the bottom of the glowing outline around New Game takes you to the kirby guest star menu all the same

  9. You can't play as Kirby in guest star mode I have the game only meta knight dedede and bandana waddle d I are playable story characters from all Kirby game FACT

    Reply
    • You can't play as Kirby in that mode unless you use a glitch. As of now, it is still working. Go try it out. Everyone is doing it. Enable subtitles or read the description to learn how to do the glitch.

      But now I'm wondering if Nintendo is able to patch this or not. Anyone knows?

      Reply
  10. What if you beat the game as Kirby with an ability? And, can you gain an ability in the credits if you start off without one? Do friends hearts work?

    Reply
    • If you do, the credits display it as that Helper. For example, I beat it with Staff Kirby, so it just said Jammerjab. Don't know about the rest.

      Reply
  11. Should be surprising that the game even has failsafes put in should you ever trick the game into allowing you to play as Kirby, himself, in this mode.

    Reply
  12. I don’t think is glitch my friend…more or less could be a additional program or event in the game that perhaps Nintendo was planing to Kirby playable in the guest star by doing something or setting for something special…we really don’t know why but…I think I can’t be a glitch is has to be..more like a program that isn’t activated yet..or it was set by some date but who know..time will tell but you activated by an error of program but it could a glitch

    Reply
  13. A monochrome Kirby who can inhale things but cannot obtain copy abilities would be a cool guest star, now that I think about it.

    Kinda off topic, but still 😛

    Reply
  14. Someone should document what Kirby does when you beat it for the first time and already have a full audience.

    Reply
  15. So basically we're seeing Kirby Star Allies & Kirby?
    Is this stuff going to be like Knuckles Mania & Knuckles?

    Reply
    • Hopefully not just a Meta Knight skin.
      I want to see the most feared swordsman go up against our winged vigilante!

      Reply
    • Caden Does Gaming
      Yeah! If Galacta Knight is added to the game, his final smash could be that he turns into Morpho Knight!
      I imagine that it he would gain more moves and when the smash finishes, he uses that Mega Sword attack to try and finish off an opponent!
      Oh man, the ideas are endless!

      Reply
    • The only thing I'd be wary when wishing this is having another clone character. I don't want Galactica Knight to be like Dark Pit, I.E. literally all the moves of another character and a final smash that basically was ripped from another(in this case it'd probably be like Yoshi's or Charizard's, flying around and shooting sword beams with a powerful melee attack). Galactica Knight definitely has enough of a difference from Meta Knight for his own unique moveset, but he also could just as easily be Meta Knight Part 2; Lance Edition. Even if he had a more unique final smash with a cloned moveset, in competitive play he might as well just be a Meta Knight skin.

      I wouldn't be too miffed about it, but he looks like he could be a lot more with his weapon-of-choice being a stabbing weapon that can be used to bludgeon foes with the sides.

      Reply
    • If anything, Morpho Knight could be a skin for Meta Knight, since the character uses an early design for Meta Knight.

      Reply
    • Daroach for smash 5 lol

      Oh wait that actually could work well. And the Squeak Squad theme is in both of the latest smash games…hmm..

      (Star rod for weapon, final smash would be similar to King Dedede'S Brawl final smash but instead of waddle dees its the squeak squad. Or transformation to Dark Daroach)

  16. Playing as Kirby alone gives full enjoyment when fighting bosses because the bosses in this game are super easy and have like no hp

    Reply
  17. In guest star mode other players can join in and play as P1's character without having to toss a heart to an enemy

    what happens if you try to do this with kirby, will it just give you a random character or would it give you a yellow kirby?

    Reply
  18. Morpho Knight actually appeared in kirby 20th anniversary concept art before this, Which I think is pretty neat.

    Reply
  19. I love how they took the original look idea for meta knight and made an entire new character out of the design.

    Reply
  20. I just translated the Japanese text on the pause screen and it actually says (missing). Edit: there’s also a glitch where if you beat this as Kirby and go in the friends credits the game will actually randomly select different friend names, example vividria: a colorful ❤️. And when you look at the credits again it will say, chef Kawasaki. Try it out

    Reply
  21. Marx should be a boss because if you throw a hart at meta knight or king dedede after they are defeated you get them so it should be the same for Marx but sadly it isn’t

    Once the update comes out I to do a guest run with him 😆

    Reply
  22. Galatic knight… the most feared knight in the whole galaxy for he's immense power… captured by a butterfly…

    Yep.

    Reply
    • I believe Galacta Knight absorbed the butterfly, not what people think where it’s the other way around, but the animation shows otherwise

      Reply
    • Caden Does Gaming the animation shows Galactic knight getting absorbed if it was the other way around I would believe that… I'm not say your thought is wrong but it's weird how a butterfly from other Kriby games comes out of nowhere and just absorbs the most feared knight out of absolute nowhere…

      Reply
  23. This may have just motivated me to go finish my file 2 playthrough so I can test this without worrying about whether or not it will overwrite the helpers I beat it with.

    Reply
    • It's in the description, Communitygame is the only one that gave credit to the source while other youtubers are keeping it a secret

      Reply
  24. You know morpho knight? His design is actually concept art of how meta knight was before he was finalized so I find that extremely cool

    Reply
    • Using the Kirby glitch in guest star will ruin the credit scene, give you an invisible hiscore for Kirby.

      Then you also won't be able to touch the powerup symbols/icon/hats but you'll still be able to swallow enemies to gain the ability.

      And you'll get a broken Japanese placeholder for Kirby and some other things happen.

  25. Dude I swear knuckle joe is my favorite kirby character I mean looo he's just like the original kirby but different, because it makes you feel like you're kirby but not.

  26. First reaction to Morpho Knight
    Great, now we have 2 awesome masked warriors we know NOTHING about.

    • ChosenGamer TJ yeah, but backstory wise. Alike Galacta Knight, he's got no story related background or references towards the Kirby series aside from being a special end boss.

    • Knuxiel Lombardi Ybur given how you only fight him in guest star and this games version of true arena, its very well possible that he is not cannon; at least not yet

  27. Wait, if morpho knight exploded
    that means that there will never be a galacta knight fight again .

    Well except for time portals

    Reply
  28. Did you know
    Morpho Knight is a pretty direct reference to the original meta Knight design, originally meta Knight was supposed to be like a butterfly but changed it for whatever reason. Morpho Knight is HAL and Nintendo paying omage to the original meta Knight design

    Reply
  29. I think kirby overwrite the time of the wadle doo because before the credits on the background apears the simbol of the waddle doo (sorry for my English, i'm from México)

    Reply
  30. Kirby may have been the placeholder character for Guest Star Mode but the credits roll was made after Kirby was removed

    Reply
  31. In the description you mention that it may be a reference to the playing as master hand glitch from Smash, and that it’s probably a glitch.

    But why does Kirby react to Galacta/Morpho Knight in the cutscene? And before anyone says that Kirby fights Morpho Knight in the Ultimate Choice, BUT, the introduction is skipped in the ultimate choice.

    Reply
    • Kirby reacts in all the cutscenes even in Guest Star mode. I think they have canned animations that work across almost all character models. Most of the playable characters in that mode have a body type similar to Kirby's.

      Reply
  32. The side-effect of playing as Kirby in Guest Star Mode(aside from the Guest Star Curtain Call)is that you can't use Copy Essences or Ability Items to get Copy Abilities.

    Reply
  33. Wait that butterfly killed galacta knight because the Morpho knight is soooo muck easier than galacta knight in all games the hardest galacta knight is definitely return to dreamland

    Reply
  34. I cleared mine with all 3 allies and Kirby didn't jump at the crowd at all… I had 6 Guest Stars in the crowd. He only said "Hi" and did a spin as if he was clearing a stage before entering a door with his friends.

    Reply
  35. So most people probably don't know this but Morpho Knights design was originally going to be Meta Knights design

  36. Kirby: TONIGHT HERE ON KIRBY GUEST STARS, WE HAVE OUR GUEST, KIRRRRBBBYYYYY!

    Kirby:SO KIRBY, HOW DID YOU GET SO POPULAR?

    Kirby: well, it all started when-

    Kirby:WHEN HE DUMPED ME.
    (Kirby walks in and slaps Kirby)

    Audience/all are kirbys:OOOOOOOOOO

    Kirby:IT LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE SOME DRAMA!

    Reply
  37. It seems like more of a glitch and Kirby was intended to be used in guest star mode as it is just a time trial mode and when you do play as him the game is just using leftover files as placeholders

    Reply
  38. If I had to guess it'd be that Kirby was used to test/debug Guest Star Mode and we're actually clicking on that "test" button when you hit A between the options.

    Could've been left in for fun or they just forgot/assumed people wouldn't find it.

    Reply
  39. For completionists out there like me, I suggest doing this glitch and completing this mode as Kirby before a patch comes out that fixes this. Just the fact that it saves your best times and doesn't overwrite anything means that there's one extra character to beat this mode as for a true 100% 🙂

  47. The fact that it has it's own leaderboard and title can't be a glitch. This has to be a really dumb hidden feature

  48. It may have been patched in the version 2.0.0 update. I can't get it to work anymore. But I actually left an incomplete playthrough of Guest Star Kirby on file 2 since I expected this. I can still play through it if I want to, but I'd rather leave it there forever.

    • Interesting. I tapped all over that area and nothing was happening anymore. I didn't have a playthrough saved either. (It was file 1)

      Reply
    • Okay, I've still been trying to do this glitch again since the update came out and nothing was working… until today. Either I got lucky the first time or the glitch became harder after the update. I have no idea.

    Havinh butterfly wings rather takes away imposing points.

  56. I feel like it was originally intended,since it has it's own features and everything. What if you do it on Multiplayer mode?

    EDIT It seems to be implied that this isn't a glitch, but an unfinished feature. I think it'll be added in a future update!

  57. What's weird is that, with Marx you get a remade version of his theme once you start fighting morpho. As if your the boss

    Reply
  58. Another thing. Crash Kirby with damage multipliers seems crazy. I brought Flamberge down WAY past her second phase limit.

    Reply
  59. This doesn't seem like a glitch. I left after a checkpoint, and it showed a Kirby icon beside the "continue" button. Also, the pause menu actually changes Kirby's name/the name of his ability so that it matches the font, colour, and position of the other ally names(if that sounds odd, what I mean is that Kirby's name is fit beside the words "guest star", and given a different appearance than the regular kirby name in the pause menu) even the way you access it seems like a nintendo easter egg.

    Reply
  60. Thank goodness after the update with the 3 animal friends + Marx, nintendo didn't patch this. Even if they did, hopefully they had the timed mode for kirby (kinda like the Meta Knightmare series (regular starting in nightmare in dreamland, "ultra" in KSSU, "returns" in planet robobot)).

    Reply
  61. Star allies is a bit like triple deluxe on the final level. Zan corresponds with taranza with dedede only to be cast aside by hyness/sectonia and fight.then Final boss now! Also a meta night fight before the ex final fight but that's prob normal

    Reply
  62. I feel like perhaps instead of a glitch, this is just an incomplete easter egg that was discarded before the game was finished. I really hope they fully implement it in an later update.
