The Halberd possesses four bat-like wings (two on each side) and Meta Knight's mask built on the tip of the ship to display who it belongs to. On its main deck, the Halberd has a machine consisting of a laser cannon, a normal cannon that launches bombs and a robotic arm installed to protect the ship. When Kirby fights against this machine in Super Star or Super Star Ultra, it uses the bomb cannon and the laser to attack him, whereas the and the robotic hand holds bombs, which can give Kirby the Bomb Copy Ability.
In Kirby Squeak Squad, when Kirby enter Meta Knight's boss stage he enters an underwater room with powerups, in the next room he fights Meta Knight. The stage is rising from the sea into space. After you beat Meta Knight you can see the Halberd at Level 1 of World 8, suggesting that this was the place Kirby and Meta Knight fought.
The battleship serves as the final platforming stage in Kirby's Epic Yarn. Here, Kirby uses the Starship transformation in a horizontal-scrolling shooter level to take on the many enemies of the battleship. He also combats yarn versions of the Main Cannon #2 and the Reactor. The background music for this level is an acoustic, jazzy rendition of the exterior Halberd background music from Kirby Super Star (though the in-game description for the song's CD incorrectly states it as being from Kirby's Dream Land). A similar rendition of the same theme can be heard in a stage medley on the soundtrack for Kirby Super Star Ultra.
