A puzzle piece is an item in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse.

Physical Appearance

As its name suggests, a puzzle piece is a jigsaw puzzle piece. It is blue in color.

When Kirby touches one, eight additional puzzles pieces appear nearby. If he manages to collect all of them in a few seconds, he is awarded a Treasure Chest.

If he has already collected the Treasure Chest from a given set of puzzle pieces, he will be awarded with point stars instead. Puzzle pieces appear in the stages Up the Big Ol' Tree, Dig and Dash, The Haunted Ship, Kirby Submarine's Torpedo Time, Deep-Divin' Kirby Submarine, Burning Secrets, Infiltrate the Junk Factory!, and Kirby + Kirby.


  • Puzzle pieces act very similarly to Red Coins from the Super Mario Bros. series.
  • Picture Pieces, items that appear in Kirby Star Allies, resemble puzzle pieces. Whereas puzzle pieces allow Kirby to access treasure chests, however, Picture Pieces themselves serve as a collectible.
