Kirby Super Star

Take Kirby's Adventure and add more color, variety, and additional moves for each Copy Ability, much like a fighting game, and you have Kirby Super Star!
Known as Hoshi no Kirby Super Deluxe (星のカービィスーパーデラックス) in Japan and Kirby's Fun Pak in PAL regions, it's a collection of eight sub-games in one. This includes a remake of the original Kirby's Dream Land, the famous Gourmet Race, and a campaign to stop Meta Knight, in a surprisingly villainous role, from conquering Dream Land.
While appearing well-programmed on the surface, the game has many time-saving glitches, from warping to the credits to zipping through walls. These are, of course, freely abused in a TAS.

Kirby Super Star is a consolidation of eight Kirby games in one. Since most of the games must be completed to reach the credits, this movie is fairly long.
The author, nitsuja, controls both players when applicable rather than letting the CPU operate the helper.
For those interested, the obsoleted movie uses only one controller. This accounts for the large time difference between the two movies.
Kirby Super Star is normally a fairly long game split into a bunch of minigames, as the following run at TASVideos shows. However, in the Japanese version of the game, a glitch can be exploited on ladders that allows the player to basically take over the game's inner workings.
This run first goes to The Great Cave Offensive, since it has the first ladder that can be reached from a clean save. For many more technical details, read the author's submission comments.
The baseline tab shows the default movie beating the game as fast as possible without any special conditions.
