Is there a difference between "bäst" and "bästa"?

and "först" vs "första", Im guessing it would be the same principle?

Because they don't seem to follow the usual adjective rules

    Bäst is also an adverb. You cannot be "bästa", you can only be "bäst".

    Jag är bäst - I am the best.
    Jag är den bästa [noun]. - I am the best [noun].

    Vilket land har bäst mat? - Which country has the best food?
    Vilket land har den bästa maten? - Same
