In The Super Smash Bros. Series
- Unusually, the Super Smash Bros. Series does not take content from this game; rather, the opposite happens. Master Hand and Crazy Hand appear as the final bosses in Candy Constellation. Master Hand also appears three times as a miniboss - in Rainbow Route, Radish Ruins and Candy Constellation. Forest / Nature Area is in Brawl and is the only GBA music to be unchanged.
- When Kirby "swallows" Master Hand, he gains the ability known as Smash. The Smash ability features special moves that Kirby has in the Super Smash Bros series.
Often, when Super Smash Bros. internet fan games are made (for example, Super Smash Flash), they use the sprites from this game.
