Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards is a Kirby game for the Nintendo 64. The game stars Kirby, Ribbon, Waddle Dee, Adeleine and King Dedede in a quest to gather all of the Crystal Shards scattered across six different planets. Gameplay is almost identical to previous Kirby games, as Kirby moves on a 2D plane and eats enemies to gain different powers. The big difference, however, is that Kirby can merge two different abilities together.


There are seven core abilities that can be merged to create other abilities, bringing the total amount different powers up to twenty-eight. The main abilities are Bomb, Cutter, Fire, Ice, Needle, Spark, and Stone.

Stand Alone Abilities

  • Bomb: Allows Kirby to throw bombs in front of him.

  • Fire: Kirby transforms into a ball of fire that propels him forward for a brief amount of time.
  • Ice: Kirby breathes ice that freezes enemies when hit.
  • Needle: Kirby grows spikes that kill enemies, Kirby also sticks to any surface when using this ability.
  • Spark: Electricity surrounds Kirby, hurting any enemy that he touches.
