Kirby 64 has one of the best stories ever for a Kirby game. Zero Two wants to invade Ripple Star for an unexplained reason, so The Queen sends Ribbon away with a giant crystal. The crystal is obvously what the Dark Matter was after. While escaping, Dark Matters attack Ribbon and cause her to land on Pop Star. She soon meets our pink hero who decides to help her collect the crystal shards.
If you beat the game without collecting all of the shards, you do not actually complete the game. Zero Two had been inside of The Queen, but the full crystal is able to get it out of her. In the end, Kirby and Ribbon defeat Zero Two and peace returns to the galaxy.
