Delivery Dilemma is the 68th episode of Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. This episode is notable for the first appearance of the Jet ability.


The Cappies of Cappy Town and King Dedede are fed up with Kawasaki's cooking. To help him get some money in, Tiff suggests he starts a delivery service to bring customers food directly to their door. He hires Tiff, Tuff, Kirby, and a few of the Cappy children to help out, but when Kirby doesn't deliver Dedede's food in time, Dedede orders another monster- this time a food delivering speed demon!

Episode summary

KSSU Kirby run
Spoiler alert: The following section contains plot-specific details.(Skip Section)

Kirby rests on his trip to Dedede's.

The episode starts with Kirby, Tiff, and Tuff hearing Kawasaki having no customers. Tiff suggests a delivery service, so he hires her, Tuff, Kirby, and the Cappy kids. Kawasaki then makes a call to let people know about his delivery service, so he calls Dedede, who is very hungry, and then hangs up on him.

Tiff teaches him how to spread the new by calling Mayor Len, Yabui, Gengu, and others. The delivery service was also found out by the Waddle Dees. Dedede is desperate for food, so he decides to eat the Waddle Dees food, who are eating pork cutlet sandwiches they ordered from Kawasaki's, so Dedede rudely orders a bowl of pork roast ramen. Tiff decides to take the order, but a phone call makes her have to use Kirby.

He's doing just fine until the scent of ramen reaches his nose, so he decides to eat it, until Tiff's words flash in his head, in which she says not to run off and eat the food. Kirby pulls himself and continues. Dedede keeps calling for his ramen, but Kirby once again

looks at the food and can't stand himself. The next morning is another day of work, but Kirby hasn't completed the order.

Dedede hasn't slept since he has been waiting for his pork roast ramen. It finally comes, but it turns out Escargoon had recently ordered it. Tuff finds out that Kirby didn't finish the delivery. This angers Dedede, so he orders a food delivery monster, then calls Kawasaki to let everyone know. He says it's punishment for Kirby for not delivering his food, so he orders two pork roast ramen as a test, and it gets to the castle almost instantly while also launching Melman into the air and replacing the Cappy kids and Tuff. Dedede wants all deliveries, so he and Escargoon disguised their voices as Melman, Chief Bookem, Curio, Mabel, and Gengu, and ordered a high number of food.

Tiff later is worried about Kirby, so she looks for him. Tokkori mocks Kirby for working for Kawasaki, saying it's like a wolf taking care of sheep. Tiff finds Kirby and apologizes to him for making him do something he couldn't do. He forgives and they go home, but Tiff finds that Kirby had untouched the ramen, so she embraces him in happiness, but this was cut short when the monster started attacking Kirby.

He could not fight back since it kept attacking before Kirby reached the ground, but Meta Knight appears and slashes one of its rocket boosters. Kirby inhales it and becomes Jet Kirby. He catches up to the monster with Jet Dash, but it tries to shoot Kirby with missiles. Kirby retaliates with Jet Cracker and defeats the monster. He

takes the ramen and flies to the castle. Dedede was informed that his monster was defeated, but Kirby comes with a stale pork roast ramen. Dedede is losing his appetite, so he lets Kirby do whatever he wants to do with it, and walks away. Kirby sucks the bowl clean, ending the episode.
