Played on T98-Next build Jan 24 2002
It doesn't let me submit Twitch broadcasts for some reason so I'll add it here as comment
I've gotten a score that's a tiny bit higher than this, but at the time I didn't find it worth uploading the recording: https://puu.sh/rsNW4/7e5682c9a2.png
Should also add this run did get counterstop chain. Someone else has gotten it and claimed the gained score does calculate past 9999 multiplier but I couldn't really tell. The counterstop didn't last very long regardless
I started playing this a couple of days ago. I took strategies I found on GameFAQs and managed to have this run last about 2 hours. Whispy Woods was stalled but didn't manage to get to the point to him stopping to attack. Kracko was very minorly stalled. The real thing that shot my score up seems to be Mr. Shine's solar flare attack, which shoots more projectiles if you got more Kirbies alive. I might've been able to stall it a bit more, but I killed Mr. Bright too early so he couldn't revive Shine (if he even could, I lost count). Meta Knight elites and Meta Knight himself weren't stalled and Nightmare ended up being stalled for what must've been around an hour. I started with 7 Kirbies and ended with 2 due to stupid mistakes and losing attention-span. The score could've been milked better if I hadn't lost as many Kirbies, but once I was reduced to 2, Nightmare happened to already be about dead, so conveniently I wasn't gonna Game Over.
