kirby 64 the crystal shards cheats

Here are all the guides, tips, and strategies to enjoy playing Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards with cheats and unlockables.


Boss Battle Mode & Movie Viewer

If you collect all crystals in the game (the number on your file select screen should say 100%), you will be able to check out two secret modes: Boss Battle (Bosubuchi) and Movie Viewer (Zenbu Miseru). As the name suggests, you can fight all the bosses in the game in Boss Battle. The Movie Viewer lets you watch all the cutscenes in the game in order.

Kirby Talks

On the Title Screen, hold L + R + Z and push A. This will make Kirby say “Hi!”.

Sound Test

Beat the game once. Sound Test will now be available on the Options screen.

Unlimited Lives

Once you’ve beaten a level, all the Crystal Shards will turn into Blue Stars. Go back to a previous level and collect the Blue Stars. Once you have one, pause the game and select “Try Again.” Then go back to the level and repeat the process until you’ve gotten enough lives.

Tips & Tricks

Boss Strategies

Here are the recommended abilities/weapons to use to defeat each of the game’s bosses with ease.

Pop Star Boss

Best weapon: Flame Sword (Cutter, Flame). Use the sword to destroy the tiny trees, then hit the spikes that come out of the ground.

Rock Star Boss

Best weapon: None. When you get all the way to the top, suck on the atom objects and throw it at one of the cubes.

Aqua Star Boss

Best weapon: Flame Sword (Cutter, Flame). When the shark is in front of you, throw the sword at him. After he faints, hit him when he swims up at you.

Neo Star Boss

Best weapon: Anything that throws. When the lava comes out of the ground, hit it. He will faint and then chase you. When he is not doing anything, jump and throw whatever you have at his mouth.

Shiver Star Boss

Best weapon: Anything. When his hands are in range, hit them. He then turns into a jet. Go for the pincers.

Ripple Star Boss

Best weapon: Random. When he turns into something, hit him with that. For example, when it turns to lightning, hit it with lightning.

Break Through Walls

There are various walls that must be broken by specific abilities. The ability depends on the color of the wall.

Light BrownSpike

Defeat Enemies Without Using a Power

Get under an enemy that you want to defeat. Then, jump under them and they will freeze for a few seconds. Jump under them two times in order to defeat them.

Extra Star Piece or Treat

Return to the start of most levels to find a Star Piece or Star Treat.

Easy Enemy Info (?) Cards

Get the Firework power (Bomb + Fire) and go to the first level. Press B whenever you encounter an enemy. At the bonus game, try to get the tan square with the “?” on it.
