Hero Overview

Poyo!
~ Kirby's catchprase.
Hi!
~ Kirby's greeting the player.

Kirby (カービィ, Kābī in Japan) is a pink puffball and the titular main protagonist of the eponymous video gaming series by Nintendo with the same name. He is known well for his ability to vacuum up his enemies and copy their powers.

The series has been running for over two decades, and nearly thirty titles have been released under Kirby's name, most of which are developed by HAL Laboratory Inc. or published by HAL for co-developing studios.

Kirby is voiced by Makiko Ohmoto, who also voices Ness.

Biography

Kirby has been featured in his own anime series, many manga publications in several countries, and even an educational video co-starring Mario. He has his fair share in Nintendo's merchandising from all his appearances, although many of them are only released in Japan.

Kirby lives in his dome-shaped home in Dream Land, a country on his home planet Pop Star. His adventures take him throughout Dream Land and occasionally into local star systems for various reasons, and he has saved his homeland several times.

The Kirby series is one of Nintendo's many well-known game franchises, spanning nearly twenty games since 1992. His first appearance took place in the 1992 video game Kirby's Dream Land, where he was portrayed by a two-dimensional sprite; since Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards for the Nintendo 64, he has made several appearances in 3-D. He has been featured in other video games from Nintendo, on Nintendo's merchandising, on comic books, and even on a television show.

In the Super Smash Bros. series, Kirby is the true protagonist of the series. This was revealed in Super Smash Bros. Brawl's story mode, the Subspace Emissary, as he breaks the Subspace Gunship in one of the cutscenes.

Kirby is described in his games as a small pink puffball, who is a citizen of Nihongo on the planet Pop Star. In the main game, he almost always has the same abilities; he can walk, run, jump, float, slide, and inhale, spit out, or devour his enemies.

Kirby often journeys across the planet Pop Star, defeating antagonistic forces such as the greedy King Dedede or the evil Dark Matter. On other occasions, he encounters the enigmatic Meta Knight. To defeat his foes, he uses his signature ability to inhale large objects and spitting them out with great force. From Kirby's Adventure onward, Kirby was able to gain the abilities of the enemies he swallowed, better known as his Copy Abilities. In several games in the series, he obtains a mystical weapon during the climax of the battle against his enemy; this weapon is usually required to defeat the final boss.

Other Media

Super Smash Bros.

Kirby appears as one of the main 8 fighters alongside Mario Link, Donkey Kong, Fox McCloud, Yoshi and Pichau.

Trivia

  • In his There Will Be Brawl incarnation, Kirby underwent radical personality changes, becoming insane and evil. This may have been a message of the video's creator's expression of anger against Kirby devouring others.
  • Some of Kirby's Copy Abilities can make him change color, some examples include:
    • Fire - Red
    • Ice - Blue
    • Mirror - White
    • Ninja - Purple
    • Needle - Yellow
    • Plasma/Spark - Green
    • Stone - Gray
    • Water (in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!): Translucent blue
    • Hypernova - Rainbow
  • In the Super Smash Bros. series, many of Jigglypuff's attacks and abilities are similar to Kirby's.
  • The way Kirby flips off the stage once his health is drained is similar to how Mario flips off upon defeat in the New Super Mario Bros. saga.
