Raw scans can be found on MEGA via the links on the right.

A Japanese gaming magazine aimed at little kids and focused on Nintendo consoles (natch). If you're looking for reviews or insight, this ain't the place to find it; instead there's lots of excitable Pokémon coverage, shilling licensed games, and stacks of pack-in gifts such as guidebooks, badges and stationary.
That's all very well and boring, but what's exciting is its manga section! Kid-friendly serialised escapades based off then-current Nintendo DS and Wii games; they're probably not that exciting, but a majority of them have never been reprinted anywhere else, so that's a novelty in itself, innit.

The magazine ran from April 2006 to April 2012, after which it rebranded itself as Dengeki Nintendo for KIDS (デンゲキニンテンドー for KIDS), cutting its pagecount and the number of full-page manga (though some continued as 4-koma, like Sonic the Hedgehog).
On June 2013 it rebranded again as just Dengeki Nintendo (電撃Nintendo), presenting itself as a more mature magazine and dropping the manga section entirely, the bastards.

The list of manga below is cross-referenced from Wikipedia and the contents pages available on ASCII Media Works' website; they only list from September 2008 onwards, and the issues from June 2009 to July 2010 list the manga separately from their index, so I just have to extrapolate from the next issue previews.

Animal Crossing: Wild World
Wicked! Everybody's Forest Tales

おいでよ どうぶつの森 やばいよ!みんな森の物語

By Ichigo Taiga (大賀一五), ran from December 2005 to December 2008, though it continued in Character Parfait (キャラぱふぇ) from December 2008 to June 2012 as Everybody's Forest Tales P (みんな森の物語P) [src].
A full-colour two-page strip like many of the early comics. The mellow Toto (トート) and hotheaded Nene (ネーネ) take part in small-town community life with very different expectations.

Battle! Pokemon Card Game Club DP

戦え!ポケモンカードゲーム部DP

By Kura☆rissa (くら☆りっさ). Ran from at least June 2006 (probably earlier!) to May 2009 as a full-colour manga with only two to five pages per issue. It rebranded as an 8-page black and white manga in June 2009, dropping the "DP" from its title, and continued until October 2010.

Instead of seeing kickass monsters kicking ass, we see tiny children explain their card strategies. Boo.

GO! Ketsu Wario

GOケツワリオ

By Akira Yamanaka (山中あきら), ran from June 2007 until August 2011.
Featuring the treasure-hunting exploits of Wario and company; initially based off Wario: Master of Disguise, then changed focus to Wario Land: The Shake Dimension in late 2008 (September 2008, I think?) for the remainder of its run.
As far as I can tell, the name is a pun on "koketsu" (虎穴), meaning "dangerous place" and often used in the Japanese phrasing of "nothing ventured, nothing gained." "Go" and"ketsu" stand for "five" and "arse" respectively.

June 2007

Wario ganks Goodstyle and clobbers Count Cannoli.

Oshiete! Kinipio

教えて!キノピオ

By Udon Tanaka (たなかうどん, the pen name of Tamori Ha Taru / タモリはタル), ran from February 2008 [src] to November 2009. Roughly translated as "Tell Me, Toad!".

A two-page strip consists of Toad and other minor Mario characters learning how to use the various menus on Nintendo Wii and DS hardware, and doing something vaguely silly. The text feature on the next page would explain things in a more sensible manner.

June 2009

#16: Toad teaches everyone how to customise their DSi home menus.

Both series are available to read on Kei Aoki's website, complete with a rough English translation:

Hoshi no Kirby: Pupupu Hero

星のカービィプププヒーロー

By Kei Aoki (あおきけい) and Maru Mika (みかまる), ran from January 2009 to April 2013, but resumed in Dengeki Bazooka!! (デンゲキバズーカ!!) under the title of Hoshi no Kirby: Ultra Super Pupupu Hero (星のカービィ ウルトラスーパープププヒーロー) from December 2014 to April 2016.
Fluffy antics starring the Kirby gang, probably based off the then-current games for all I know.

Two collected editions were included as pack-ins with issues of Dengeki Nintendo for KIDS:
The first volume (containing 26 episodes spanning January 2009 to February 2011, pictured left) was bundled with the April 2013 issue.
The second volume (containing 27 episodes spanning March 2011 to May 2013, pictured right) was bundled with the May 2013 issue.
The Ultra Super Pupupu Hero series has not been reprinted as of this writing, but the authors' Twitter feed reported on a vote around June 2017 to get a collected edition made.

The Masked Knight fansite has scans and translations of a fair few stories; the ones featuring Meta Knight, at least.
