The more games you play, the higher your Gourmet Rank increases. With each level up, you’ll earn a reward, which includes songs, alternate color schemes, and charming costumes. The outfits you unlock along the way don’t help you strategically in the game, but they are a fun way to customize your avatar. He’s no shortage of cuteness when it comes to Kirby, but these costumes in particular surpass him.


12 susie

Susie’s costume, unlocked relatively late in the game at Gourmet Rank 88, allows Kirby to don Susie’s memorable pink hair, blue eyes, and white headband. She is one of the antagonists in Kirby: Planet Robobot, although she becomes an ally in Kirby Star Allies.

Susie is a great costume if you’re looking for a futuristic vibe in Kirby’s Dream Buffet, and her natural cute factor matches Kirby perfectly. This costume pairs well with the Susie White palette, which is unlocked at level up (Rank 89).

11 Chief Kawasaki

Reaching Gourmet Rank 53 grants you the Kawasaki Chef Costume, which has the matching Kawasaki Sunset color scheme (unlocked at Rank 54). Although simple, this costume gives Kirby a chef’s hat, like Chef Kawasaki’s character, and arms you with a ladle strapped to your back.

Not only is this costume a sweet homage to Kirby’s frequent antagonist and occasional ally, Chef Kawasaki himself, but it’s also the perfect inclusion for Kirby’s Dream Buffet – a cooking-centric game.

ten marx

In costume form, Marx is no longer the fearsome and slightly creepy big boss of Kirby Super Star. Instead, his floppy jester hat and giant bow tie add to Kirby’s natural charm, giving him a cheerful appearance. The costume matches Marx’s mischief and jester-like appearance, just without the evil factor.

The Marx Suit is unlocked at Gourmet Rank 57, and its matching Marx Lilac color scheme is unlocked at Rank 58.

9 grinding wheel

Gourmet Rank 35 gives you the Rick costume. A longtime ally of Kirby, the hamster Rick first appeared in Kirby’s Dream Land 2 and has remained a constant friend of the pink hero. If you’re a fan of hamsters (or cute animals in general), then this costume is for you!

Complete with ears, nose and a little stump tail, Rick’s costume transforms Kirby into the cutest hamster of all. If you want the color scheme to match this outfit, earn Gourmet Rank 36 to unlock Rick Cream.

8 Cattle

Are you a fan of underwater adventures? Then Kine’s costume might be the one for you! Another of Kirby’s allies from Kirby’s Dream Land 2, Kine is a sunfish. In Kirby’s Dream Buffet, Kine’s costume gives you a puckered fish mouth and a row of fins along your back. The round mouth makes Kirby appear constantly surprised, which is adorable.

Kine’s costume is unlocked at Gourmet Rank 37, and her usual blue coloring, Kine Aqua, is unlocked at Rank 38.

seven Elfillin

Elfilin, unlocked at Gourmet Rank 30, introduces the turquoise companion to Kirby and the Forgotten Land. While this costume doesn’t change Kirby’s appearance, it does see Elfilin cling to your head as you ride through the game.

Elfilin’s giant ears give this costume its natural cuteness. Elfilin Peacock, the reward for reaching Gourmet Rank 31, is the associated color scheme. If you liked Kirby and the Forgotten Land, you’ll love this costume choice.

6 Coo

This cute bird-style costume gives you the chance to dress up as Coo, one of Kirby’s iconic animal allies from Kirby’s Dream Land 2 and more. Reached Gourmet Rank 39, the Coo costume gives you a beak, a tuft of feathers on the head, and a feathery tail.

You can color match the feathers by unlocking the Coo Purple color scheme at Gourmet Rank 40.

5 Kirby Burger

The Kirby Burger, unlocked at Gourmet Rank 8, allows Kirby to wear a burger on his head. However, this is no ordinary burger: it’s a Kirby Burger like you can find at the Waddle Dee Café in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. Like the Kirby Burger from the adventure game, this hat is topped with Kirby’s smiling face on the bun for added cuteness.

It’s a simple, yet adorable costume to see as Kirby rolls around on stage. The Burger Brown matching color scheme, unlocked at Rank 9, is a bit bland compared to the other colors, but the Kirby Burger pairs well with any other color as well.

4 Car-mouth cake

Another item on the Waddle Dee Café menu, the Car-Mouth Cake is unlocked at Gourmet Rank 12. The cake is designed to look like Kirby eating a car, like he does in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. Like the Burger Hat, the costume is simply the cake sitting on Kirby’s head, but the cake itself is so cute and looks ready to eat.

This costume also goes well with the dessert-themed runways of Kirby’s Dream Buffet, making it the perfect brand costume. Driving Sky, the color palette you earn at Gourmet Rank 13, is the pair for the Car-Mouth Cake costume, but the Cake also pairs well with most other colors.

3 Sticky

Unlocked at Gourmet Rank 68, Gooey is another ally who rides Kirby as he participates in the games. Resembling a blue blob with a long tongue and wild eyes, Gooey is a fun character who first appeared as an ally in Kirby’s Dream Land 2.

The Gooey costume is even cuter here, as its long tongue moves back and forth as you roll across the stage. It’s a nice touch that makes the costume memorable. Gooey Cobalt, the color scheme that matches this costume, is unlocked at Gourmet Rank 69.

2 chuchu

Kirby’s pink octopus-like ally Chuchu can be unlocked as a costume at Gourmet Rank 71. Complete with a red bow and sporting a constant smile, she perches above Kirby’s head as she did in his previous appearances. She is one of Kirby’s cutest companions, making her debut as an ally in Kirby’s Dream Land 3.

You can match its bubblegum pink coloring by unlocking the Chuchu Rosy Palette at Gourmet Rank 72.

1 Waddle-Doo

Waddle Doo’s costume, unlocked at Gourmet Rank 45, transforms Kirby into an iconic enemy of the series. The only harm this antagonist-inspired costume does in Kirby Dream Buffet? Kill you with kindness and steal your heart. Its matching color scheme is Doo Ketchup, unlocked at Gourmet Rank 46.

This costume lets Kirby adopt the Waddle Doo’s signature single eye, with his giant size immediately giving him a high cuteness factor. What makes it even cuter is that the eye remains the same size, even if your Kirby grows during a race or mini-game.
