     Kirby Super Star is definitly my favorite of the Kirby Series. Although
    the game was only released in Japan it is still very enjoyable.
    
     Released in 1996 the game never made it's way to the US but can still
    be played via emulation . The game includes nine different games in one
    pack, creating a megapack of fun and entertainment.  The game features
    20 "powers" that Kirby can gain from his enemies, this is a guide
    presented to cover those powers in-depth with descriptions and where
    they can be found.
    
    CORRECTION: It seems that 'Kirby Super Star' *was* indeed released in
    the United States shortly after the Japanese release, but it was on a
    small scale.  The game is apparently a rare find and worth a pretty
    penny if you do find it.

    Beam:
    Use the beam attack against enemies! Fire the beam by pressing Y. This
    is a very handy and useful ability.
    
        Y: beam whip
        Dash + Y: cycle beam
        Dash + Y: beam machine gun (in air)
        Forward + Y: capture beam (near enemy)
        Hold Y: wave beam
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

        *: Bomb angle depends on how long you press Y.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Cook:
    This is one of the few abilities that you can only use once, then it
    disappears. You get it by defeating and swallowing the Chef Kawasaki
    mini-boss. When it's used Kirby bangs on a metal pot and a giant pot
    falls to the ground. Then, all the enemies on the screen go into the
    pot and Kirby jumps up onto the pot and stirs its contents. Finally,
    the enemies that were in the pot pop out, but as power-ups to recover
    your health!
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Copy:
    Copy enemies' abilities without fighting! The helper will also be able
    to copy abilities!
    
        Y: analyze beam (Kirby); sneaky hand (Helper)
        *: Can copy an enemy's ability.
        *: The helper can dump a copy ability by pressing A.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Crash:
    This is another one-use ability obtained by either swallowing the
    walking bomb enemy with a skull picture on it or using the Copy ability
    on the floating orange heads. When used, Kirby explodes and all of the
    regular enemies onscreen will be defeated. When used against a boss,
    it'll give the boss a good amount of damage.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Cutter:
    The cutter can cut anything in its path. Use it to cut down enemies, as
    well as ropes that get in your way.

                    Double kick (strong)
        Up + Y: Rising break
        Forward + Y: Grab enemy (near enemy)
        Grab + Y: Arm throw
        Grab + Back + Y: Tomoe throw (Kirby only/when facing right)
        *: Strength of attack depends on how long you press Y.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Fire:
    Use dash + Y to hurl burning fireballs. You can light fuses, candles,
    or even yourself to become a mega-powerful weapon.
    
        Y: fire blow
        Y + Control Pad: change fire direction
        Hold Y + Back: fireball
        Dash + Y: burning attack
        B + Y: fireball spin
        Y before landing: fireball roll
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Hammer:
    Break through solid obstacles and pound in stakes to take Kirby to
    hidden areas.
    
        Y: hammer nail

        Touching ice: ice kick
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Jet:
    Turn Kirby into a dangerous jet. Store jet power by holding Y. The more
    power you store the more powerful the attack.
    
        Hold Y: store power
        Release Y: jet kick
        Release Y: jet heading (in air)
        Max power stored: jet dash
        Jet Dash + Y: jet cracker
        Release Y: jet blow (near enemy)
        Jet Blow: diving rocket (max power)
        Power stored + B: save stored power
        B: hover (in air)
        Max power + B: Ultra-jet jump (in air)
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Mike:
    This is another ability that can be used and disappears, but it can be
    used three times! Get it by swallowing a walking microphone enemy. It
    destroys all regular enemies.  It won't instantly destroy a boss enemy
    but it will take off about 30% percent each time, so by the time you
    use all three attacks you have most of the Boss's energy drained.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Mirror:
    Reflect enemy attacks or fool them by creating a double image of Kirby.
    
        Y: mirror cut

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Paint:
    This is a hidden ability and you can obtain it by swallowing the multi-
    colored balls the Chameleon enemy shoots at you. You can also swallow
    the blobs that Heavy Lobster spits out to get this ability. You can
    only use this move once, though. You can blind Heavy Lobster and change
    the Chameleon's colors with it! (You can't get this ability in the
    Milky Way Wishes.)
    
        Y: paint blast

    statue with this power, watch for it!
    
        Y: stone
        Y: stone smash (in air)
        Dash + Y: turbo stone
