  • Trivia

    • In the original version when Max Flexer crushes Kirby with the iron ball, there's a breif scene showing kirby holding his breath. In the dub, this scene is removed so it goes straight to Kirby spitting out the chips.

    • The sequence in Max Flexer's song where he squeezes Kirby and King Dedede through tubes was cut from the dub.

    • During the Max Flexer song, everyone are forced work out except for Meta-Knight

    • When Kirby transforms into Mike Kirby, the second form of Mike Kirby is shown instead of the first form.

  • Quotes

    • (A lot of Waddle Dees carry a super-sized King Dedede past)
      Cappy Parent: See what happens when you eat too much junk food?

  • Notes

    • Villain: Max Flexer. Toned, tanned, and sporting a pink afro and dark shades, Max Flexer, fitness trainer will whip you into shape. He's sent by Nightmare under the guise of a wacky fitness trainer with an agitating voice amplified by a headset, in order to trim down King Dedede and Kirby's waistlines. However, his exercise regimens are deadly, right down to steamrollers and treadmills with spikes at the end. The massive mace used as his "cruncher" reveals it all, he's actually there to keep everyone dancing while he works Kirby out of existence!

    • When Meta-Knight said to Tiff and Tuff he's fallen and can't get up, that was Steve Urkle line in Family Matters.

    • Mike (Microphone) Kirby returns.

    • Max Flexer (and his routine) seems to be based on Richard Simmons, right down to the dancing and rhyming (and probably also the voice).
