Rhythm Rumble plays like any other Kirby game, you jump, fly, inhale enemies to get their abilities, the usual. But now, each world has a unique super ability involving musical instruments. In order, these abilities are:
|Violin||"The notes from the violin go loopidy loop, loopidy loop..."||Fires musical notes that travel in a wave pattern.|
|Guitar||"Shred that guitar Kirby, those enemies can't take such serious rocking!"||Shoots lasers of sound.|
|Clarinet||"Kirby found this one with a weird squid, not sure why a squid would be playing it, they hardly have mouths."||Clarinet attacks by shooting notes that line up and track 1-5 enemies, depending on how many times you press the attack button|
|Drums||"What a warm summer, but it's never too hot to be a drummer."||Can do a combo of notes that spread around Kirby.|
|Trumpet||"Tootidy Tootidy Toot, and did I mention 'Tootidy toot'?"||A better version of the clarinet, the trumpet can target double the amount of enemies|
|Accordeon||"Who knew sound could stop someone on their tracks, maybe it's too good and they wanna stop and listen, or maybe it's something else"||Stuns enemies|
|Harp||"A beautiful instrument with sweet notes, good night little waddlers"||The notes put enemies to sleep|
|Orchestra||"A symphony of destruction, time to end this fight!"||The final ability, it's a circle of instruments around Kirby that fire waves of sound.|
To use each ability in puzzles, Kirby must hit the notes as they come down in the bottom screen, in the middle of levels, it's just the normal attack button.
There are also plane sections that play like shoot 'em ups, you still get to collect new abilities and even use the instrument abilities while on a little plane.
Bosses also have weaknesses, abilities that do slightly more damage than all others on that specific boss.

Note: Ability was remade to be useful, that's why it's under "New"
- Much like with previous Kirby games, the first letters of each world make a word, in this case, it's "MUSICAL" which is the general theme of the game.
