Kirby and King Dedede's gray alternate costumes are based on how they appeared in this game. Kirby's up taunt is the Kirby Dance, which first appeared in this game. His victory poses are also variations of the Kirby Dance. Additionally, Kirby and King Dedede's victory themes are a cover of the "Level Completed" music. Meta Knight has the same victory theme, but it is played in heavy-metal and in electric guitars.
