A 3D Warp Star is a Warp Star constructed of two pieces: a five-pointed star outline and a central core. A yellow core indicates that the star will disappear after its use. An orange core indicates that the star will reappear, allowing the player to use it several times. This is similar to doors, as yellow-star doors are one-way and orange-star doors are round-trip.
As with a regular Warp Star, a 3D Warp Star takes Kirby, King Dedede, or Meta Knight for a ride when they touch one. These special transports move the hero from one plane to another (from foreground to background or vice versa), something an ordinary Warp Star cannot do. 3D Warp Stars appear many times throughout these games, as they make heavy use of stages with multiple planes.
3D Warp Stars appear on Jambastion's stage hub. Kirby uses them to travel across large gaps or move to higher corridors. This marks the 3D Warp Star's only appearance in a game that does not use Kirby: Triple Deluxe’s dual-plane mechanic.
- Oddly, the 3D Warp Stars appearing in the Jambastion world map have a yellow star, despite the fact that the ones with orange stars are the ones that reappear.
