Game Resources / N64 / Kirby 64 The Crystal Shards

The purpose of this page is to document all of the known tricks of the game Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (N64).

Because of the nature of this site, we concentrate here on tricks that are difficult to play in real time, but are useful in the making of tool-assisted speedruns. For most of the tricks, a frame advance feature in an emulator is a definite must-have.

To do this trick, you need to press "R" or any "C" button on the last possible frame before entering a room or map. Instead of pulling out the power-up onto his head, Kirby will get the power-up back in his mouth, which can't be done without this trick.
