Kirby is the lovable gumball that is all about friendship and saving the world. Except, he isn't. In fact I don't think Kirby cares about any of that at all! Theorists, I went back through all of the Kirby games and I started to notice that Kirby... wasn't all that heroic. He doesn't care about ANYONE or ANYTHING but himself. Don't believe me? Well, I'm about to fill you up with so much proof, you'll wish you had an appetite like Kirby!

    A few thoughts... Kirby as a child: In Dream Land 1, it's established via the manual that he's "a little boy." Sure. I get that. But it doesn't change the fact that he's still a threat to Dream Land. For him to be SO powerful and SO naive is a dangerous combination. Notice in the script I never call him evil. I don't think he has ill-intent. Just because I say he's a villain doesn't mean that he's evil or has bad intentions. I mean it as he's a THREAT. That said, I've changed the title to avoid confusion. Regarding Dyna Blade: Him helping the children after the scene I showed doesn't change the point -- he beat up someone BEFORE learning the whole story, like I tried to make clear in the script. Seeing that scene, he beats up the mom, THEN sees the kids, gives the screen a "cha-ching" gesture and steals them away, feeds them and teaches them to fly...stuff the MOTHER should be doing but can't because she was injured. I get it: Dyna "forgives" him in Revenge of Meta Knight...the same way Landia does in Return to Dream Land, but I see that more as plot convenience because Kirby is the "good guy," or them realizing they have to fight the "true" evil. But think about Kirby;s ACTIONS...if someone just came up to you and started beating you up for no apparent cause, would YOU forgive the person? See them as a hero? Probably not. And don't forget that EVERYONE he fights along the way is in NO WAY connected to the battle between him and Dyna...they're innocents caught in the middle. Kirby's Avalanche: In both Epic Yarn and the original Kirby's Dream Land manual (those are the ones I can think of offhand, but there might be more), Kirby actually speaks English...or something that translates to English, so I think comments throwing these lines out as invalid might be premature. Yes, the game is non-canon, which I acknowledge, but the idea that Kirby ONLY speaks "poyo" isn't necessarily true...or it can be assumed that ALL of Avalanche's lines are translated poyo. And yes, I know Avalanche is a version of puyo was a joke. Obviously it's not a Candy Crush mod since, if nothing else, Candy Crush came DECADES later. Kirby as a God of Destruction: That's in part 2 :) I think that's all the major concerns I'm seeing in the comments. Like I said, I don't think he's intentionally villainous. He's a neutral agent of chaos who gets pointed in a direction and just GOES. But when you look at his actions in the games I call out, a lot of times he's doing more harm than good. Does he do good? Absolutely. But he's still a threat.

    Kirby hurt up dyna because he is making mass destruction, literally cutting through hills! I watched the "Is Kirby canon #20) by metiorz (I think I spelled that wrong) and a lot of the point he makes make sense.

    He’s just an infant star warrior with the power of a god who wants to do good as most kids dream of doing but in the process he causes harm because he’s to young to comprehend the complexity’s of the world and as a result gets manipulated by evildoers.

    I get that it may not be canon, but what about the Kirby TV show? According to the Wikipedia: "Kirby's ship crashes... on the planet Popstar. Despite his hardly warrior-like characteristics, he is quick to save anyone who is in danger, almost if by instinct."

  39. tonni Montana

    tonni Montana8 ימים לפני

    the only reason Kirby didn't do anything was because he can't fly holding the STAAR writing didn't know how to do it so DDD launch them up there and for all the other circumstances he got tricked and the reason he helped magolor out was because he because I said the dragon broke his shipand also how did you know a ddd's no Oye star allies he tried to clobber that there oh yeah he almost made everyone die of starvationoh yeah you he and crew he made Kirby do a gourmet race which is also still making people die of starvation he went full-out evil in revenge of the king so how about you just look to the pictureso also check your point where the boy because Kirby save the world many times the reasons he didn't do anything was because okay for squeak squad you do the same thing as someone stole your cake
