Kirby & The Mirror Curse is a game created by BreakfastSquad and published by Fantendo for the Wii U. In it, Kirby and his 3 copies must save the mirror world, Miraga, from the evil entity Dark Soul, who has put the realm into a state of decay by using the Star Rod.
Kirby is flying around in Dream Land one day, when suddenly, the warp star crashes into a flying mirror, and explodes to bits. Kirby, without his warp star, adventures around in the mirror world, which seems to consist of a gray, flaming mirror with demonic wings and two platforms with swirlies, stars, and crescents on them. Kirby goes into the gray mirror, but suddenly, a black tornado appears, sucking the pink puffball inside. The tornado reappears in Pea Plain, tossing 5 Kirbies out, including the pink Kirby and a Gray one. The Gray one soon turns into a star due to it being unstable. The pink Kirby soon wakes, followed by his three clones, who are blue, green, and red. They see the gray Kirby as a warp star and follow it through the levels to defeat Dark Soul.
If playing one player, the player plays as the pink Kirby on the game, the gray Kirby is missing, and the 3 clones are controlled by the CPU.
If the game has two or more players, the first player will use the gamepad to help the Kirbies as gray Kirby, and can use the Kirbies' copy abilities to their advantage, such as burning all the enemies with the fire ability, or summoning Meta Knight with the sword ability, as well as being able to paralyze enemies upon touch.
The game behaves exactly like Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, but with better graphics, music, and speed.

- Whispy Woods: The first boss in the game. Behaves just like normal. For the second phase, he turns into a Dark version which fires beams instead of air pellets. (Pea Plains)
- Gearfall: The second boss in the game. Behaves similar to Metal Man from Mega Man 2. For the second phase, he behaves like Kirby with the Hyper Cutter ability, throwing a giant gear. (Food Factory)
- Raine Bow: The third boss in the game. This rainbow archer will continually shoot colors at the Kirbies. For the second phase, Raine Bow will clone themself, with the duo firing rainbows at the Kirbies. (Hamburger Hill)
- Heavy Mecha: The fourth boss in the game. This enemy starts off as Heavy Lobster, attacking the Kirbies on a piece of ground above Chocolate Caves. For the second phase, Heavy Lobster turns into Heavy Mole, who will dig downwards into Chocolate Caves, skipping bits of ground now and then. Once Heavy Mole digs down far enough, he will fall into a cave, run towards the wall, and start digging. Now, the battle is exactly the same as the battle in Kirby's Adventure. (Chocolate Caves)
- Gobbler: The fifth boss in the game. Returning from Amazing Mirror, this boss behaves exactly like he did in Amazing Mirror in his first phase. In his second phase, he fires out a Mini-Gobbler, which turns into a second one. They both mirror each other's movements, making it harder to dodge Gobbler. (Spinach Sea)
- Kracko: The sixth boss in the game. Behaves exactly like he does in Kirby's Adventure. (Coconut Canyon)
- Halberd: The seventh boss in the game. The player must inhale the projectiles from the Main Cannon. For the second phrase, Kirby must defeat the Meta-Knights aboard the Halberd, similar to the mini-battles in Kirby's Adventure and Kirby Super Star. (Apple Airspace)
- Boss Gauntlet: Similar to the Tower of Mini-bosses from Kirby's Adventure. The player must fight each boss, each without a second phase. At the end, they fight Anti-Kirby, Dark Meta-Knight, and Shadow DeDeDe one at a time, respectively. (Nightmare Mirror)
- Dark Soul: After jumping on a Warp Star, Kirby flies out of Miraga. Kirby crashes into the Fountain of Dreams. Seeing the Star Rod, Kirby grabs onto it. Soon, the black tornado from earlier reappears and starts firing mirror beams at Kirby. In the second phase, the tornado turns into a sphere of black smoke. This behaves similar to the Nightmare phase 1 battle from Kirby's Adventure, but without a time limit. After this phase, Dark Soul will turn into a humanoid form with the black tornado for a cape. Here, Kirby must defeat the boss by charging the Star Rod and firing a gigantic beam. Characters from earlier games such as Rick, Kine, Coo, ChuChu, Nago, Pitch, and Adeline.
