[[User blog:Gioku/Weekly Blog 1 - Let's Talk About New Kirby Games!|>
Okay so, very conveniently, a new Kirby game has come out a week after my last blog haha! Anyway, now I've had two days to play it I can talk about it a bit (I haven't finished it yet tho, just started on area 5, so no spoilers please; thats also why you haven't seen me edit anything on it yet hehe)! This won't really be a review or anything, just thoughts on the game.
So, anyway, I love it so far hehe! When I played Kirby 3D Rumble I loved that to but felt it was like, too small of a bite-sized chunk really so they did not really explore the concept of 3D Kirby game yet, but it had great potential and I was really hopeful for an expansion, and viola, here it is! I really …

Howdy, everybody! I uploaded this image on my profile, but since I worked so hard on it, I thought I'd bring more attention to it:
This is me dressed as Magolor from Kirby's Return to Dream Land. I spent a good four and a half months gathering materials and planning--college slows things down. I put it together over one week. Unlike other Magolor cosplays I'd seen online, where the artists would make themselves look like a humanized version of the character, I went the purist route by turning just my head and hands into him. The purple clip holding the scarf on stuck out like a sore thumb, so it was replaced with a white one after these photos were taken.
This is my second cosplay after my Stanley Pines one from 2014. Given how much effort we…Read more >

So, the Kirby Wiki has this nifty little blog feature, that I have not used since 2011 when I first got on here (and when I was 15... gosh!), and I was thinking of making use of it!
So my question/premise to you is, if I did a weekly blog on here, would you read it? I'd maybe not make one every single week (I won't always have much to talk about haha!), but I'd like to do one here to talk about thoughts and opinions on Kirby/the wiki itself/Nintendo besides just the encyclopedic info that I usually work with here, haha! Plus, I'd love to stay more engaged with the community here and more active in general, which writing a weekly blog would certainly help with! So yea I am just wondering if any of you would be interested in reading/re…

Before anybody starts getting uber-excited, let me clarify: there is, so far, no confirmation that Paint is in the Kirby game for Nintendo Switch.
With Clean's, or more accurate "Cleaning"'s, reveal in the Kirby title for Nintendo Switch, it got me thinking. I know some people that would have liked it if Kirby 64 could be remade, with the side characters; Waddle Dee; Adeleine; and King Dedede; being playable. Waddle Dee could be replaced with Bandana Waddle Dee, and have Spear, and King Dedede could be Hammer, and people have had the idea that Adeleine could be the "new" Paint ability.I'd come up with the idea, however, that Ado could just act like a Sword move set, with some aesthetic changes of course. But then it hit me: a brush is kind …Read more >
I was definitely pumped up for Nintendo’s announcements at this year’s E3 in particular. This being the year of the pink puff’s 25th anniversary, I came in with high hopes for seeing some Kirby action (despite the fact that he’s been notably absent from or pushed aside in almost every one of these presentations that I can recall). And, well… I most certainly got it!
So, without further ado, let’s get right into my thoughts on the best and worst at this year’s showing!
(Note: These opinions are based solely on first impressions of what was shown at Nintendo’s E3 events. The games shown may turn out to be completely different from how I originally thought, but my opinions are just based on what they look like to me from what they showed at the p…Read more >
I've found a concept art for Kirby: Planet Robobot that shows lots of things there is also a prototype of the sleeping turtles in Rhythm Route that shows them as dragons.Read more >
After seeing how many amiibo figures The Legend of Zelda got for its 30th anniversary, I think it's highly likely that Kirby will get some new figurines to celebrate his 25th. But which will they be? I have my predictions, but this blog is dedicated to the figures that would, in my opinion, be the most fitting for the celebration. I've also included other potential candidates and ones I wish they'd make. Here they are:
Game of origin: Kirby's Dream Land (1992)
This figure holds a floating, smiley Kirby whose face is small compared to his pudgy body. In Japan, it is pink and red, but the North American version is entirely white. It represents Kirby's beginning and early years, as well as the work of director Masahiro Sakurai.

Warning: Spoilers are obligatory (but at this point, if you work on this wiki, you probably know everything)
Kirby: Planet Robobots development cycle. Team Kirby Clash, on the other hand, brought some RPG aspects back to Kirby. While it may not be turn-based, it's still all good fun. Unfortunately, these sub-games were very short. However, with games like Kirby Fighters Deluxe and Dedede's Drum Dash Deluxe having been released as expanded versions of the sub-games they were based on, what was to stop the possibility of KPR's sub-games receiving the same treatment? It took basically a year, but after that year, it was revealed that the games would have expanded versions on the eShop, with Team Kirby Clash Deluxe being available said day, and for …Read more >
Kirby Wiki is officially 10 years old! Hooray! To celebrate this momentous occasion, I've compiled my list of favorite articles--10 of them. Since I've created nearly 200 by this point, I've created a separate list for those. These are in no particular order, and I've tried to limit in-game bias in these picks; for example, even though Magolor is my favorite video game character, his article doesn't make the cut just for featuring him as the subject. I do have fond memories with some of these, however, so nostalgia may play somewhat of a role. Without further ado, let's begin!
- King Dedede - King Dedede has always stuck out to me for one thing: In a series filled with small or medium-sized enemies, he's always been big. But he will never be …

So what do you guys think as a possibility of a game based on the kirby anime.. I think it would be awesome! You could play as Kirby, Dedede, Tiff, Escargoon and Tuff and the hub would be the village and to level select you go to the library and select a chapter in the book.. The levels would be based off the episodes.. That is my idea.. Any cool ideas from anybody else?Read more >
Kirby: Darkness Arrives is the potential name for a remake of Kirby's Dream Land 2. No, I'm not saying KDL2 is going to get a remake, but this blog post is about the concept of said topic: KDL2 getting a remake. Kirby's Dream Land and Kirby's Adventure already have remakes in some shape or form, yet Kirby's Dream Land 2 has yet to be remade, with Kirby Super Star, which came after it, getting its own remake as well. Kirby's Dream Land 2, in a way, is the Metroid 2: Return to Samus of the Kirby franchise; it's rather old, also on a Game Boy, and the main game(s) before it in the series have been remade to fit the current day and age, whereas the games released after it can hold on their own without needing a remake, with one such game practically revo…Read more >

i actually think that a final boss in a kirby game is the best enemie the game can have
Im talking about necrodeus, the most underrated kirby final boss ever, he is never put in discusions, and sometimes kirby fans forget he exists

I am sorry.
I'm so tired of feeling pressured to edit, to communicate, to do things. I don't know half the things you do, I just fill up the forums with garbage posts. I have a lame profile picture, no signature, and I can't draw. I am tired and weary, and ready to move on.
WaddleDoo77, you are a silly guy. You are helpful and joyus and I like that.
Iqskirby, you were one of the first users I met. You know a lot, and edit to your knowledge.
Paul2, you are weird. You have no center, you just do what you do. You are awesome.
MetaKirby52, you are wise. You took a long break, but you are back and better than ever.

And so, these are my final goodbyes.

So, we all know him. Whispy Woods. The guy who appears 1st in (almost) EVERY Kirby game so far? Also, he (again, almost) always has some sort of new gimmick to him. Also, theories. Theories everywhere. 1 says he just wants to test Kirby, some say he is actually ALL the trees, and some say he is actually a good guy! 1 thing's for sure: he never appears the same way twice! PR had him as a mech, DL2 had him with a mask, DL3 has him turn into... well... something Mildly Traumatized Kirby wouldn't appreciate much. Triple Deluxe even made him a Floralia counterpart!
So, that said, I have a few questions to ask:
1: What was your favorite/least favorite appearance of him?
2: What exactly IS he?
3: Why did I stop being active in FOREVER?

Theory Post: After just noticing the brand new "Non-canon" stickers applied to our second favorite Knight, Galacta Knight, and re-reading the page, I noticed an interesting segment of the page that said, "While Galacta Knight's existence may be canon, none of the events in which he has appeared are canon, as the Meta Knightmare sub-games and The True Arenas are not canon."
Now, how can that happen? Completely ignoring the discussions that probably led to this decision of adding non-canon labels to Meta Knightmare sub-games, Marx Soul, and any variation of the Arena's, it got me really thinking about the canonicity of Galacta Knight's existence, which also ties into lovable little Magolor's statement about meeting someone who knew Kirby. But…Read more >
Hello all! A few days ago, I created the Ability Mix Idea Thread, and it seems to have been a successful post. Recently, I came up with the insane idea of making an extremely large chart to show all of our ideas thus far.
Well... here it is. It was certainly a difficult project, to say the least, and I probably spent waaay too much time in Microsoft Excel perfecting it. I suggest opening it up to its full size, as it probably won't be useful if you're just looking at it on this page.
If anyone discovers any errors or omissions or has any ideas for this chart, please let me know. In the case of any repeat mixes, I simply went with the original idea. Also, I will likely update the chart every once in a while to add in new ideas. Finally, I can a…

This is an oddly specific topic, but I've been meaning to share it for a while now. Credits themes! The music used to close out a player's adventure often ends up being the best track in whatever game it's it. I've noticed there are typically three types of credits themes: Ones that remix the main tune of the game; ones that form a medley out of the game's main themes, often but not always rearrangements/remixes; and ones that deliver a completely new track altogether. The emotion of the music also varies. Some are meant to be triumphant, some contemplative, some nostalgic, and some ominous.
This is just my personal top 5 list for the Kirby series--traditional, nontraditional, and spin-off. I don't know music terms all that well, so don't ex…Read more >
For those interested in the original, which should be read before this one, go here.
So, there was a theory that when Haltmann Works Company invaded Popstar, there were drastic changes to the landscape as a result, aside from mechanization; Nutty Noon was torn down for Revolution Road, White Wafers was melted for Overload Ocean, Onion Ocean was vaporized for Gigabyte Grounds, and Raisin Ruins was taken down in favor of Rhythm Route (or that the city was simply placed i the desert, like Las Vegas). I was a little concerned about the theory, given that I didn't like the idea of Popstar being permanently modified in such a drastic manner, but information appeared dictating that after Star Dream's demise, all the mechanization and planetary ch…Read more >
SPOILERS BEYOND SPOILERS.
We have done it.
Through weeks and weeks of thought, theorizing, replaying, and daydreaming
The ENTIRE Canon of Kirby: Planet Robobot.
First off, let me just say, with my previous theories, I was a little pushy about making you believe it. I apologize. Sorry.
So first, we have the story mode. This is as what it is confirmed to be in the Ask-A-Thons. You can see there cuz i'm too lazy to post them here.
Then we have Meta Knightmare Returns. So Star Dream has reality-bending powers, right? So, I think ,as it was being drilled into, it created a new, stronger dimension WITHOUT KIRBY. But he did not think of Meta Knight. So, after rescuing Kirby from being smushed, he went off to the other world, before the portal…Read more >
Yup. It's that time again. It's time to waste your time, and my own, by theorizing about some stuff! Todays topic involves the mysterious Sparkling Stars (or Twinkle Stars, if you like that sort of thing) that first debuted in Kirby's Dream Land. Also, it's been awhile since I've written anything like this, so I'm incredibly rusty. Can't really remember the last time I picked up an old Kirby game to play, either. Well, let's dive right into the theory thing!
Let's start off with some basic questions.
- Just what are the Sparkling Stars anyway?
- Where did the Stars go?
- Did the Stars give Kirby his powers?
So this first question is just a little review for those of you a little rusty about the lore behind KDL. They are said to be stars which aid Dream Lan…Read more >
Okay, you can submit all the puns you want! I really love puns, and I want to hear some!
- Keep it short and sweet. Let's go for quick one-liners here. Unless it's a REALLY good pun.
- One pun at a time. Too many can be confusing. As said above, short and sweet.
- No swearing. I know this might go without saying, but puns about Kirby should be kept E10+
- No "Suck" jokes. Unoriginal, stale, and unfunny.
Without further inturruptions, let the puns BEGIN!Read more >
1. The mix. It's just so fun to be able to combine abilities! Giant Claws, Tri-Missle, Fireworks, Animal Friends, Swiss Army Knife, Lightsaber, the list goes on! And honestly, Kirby makes the CUTEST fridge! :3
2. Adeline and Ribbon. These are, by far, the most beloved 2 Kirby characters ever. Adeline was nice, played a major role, and has been one of the MOST requested characters for smash 4. Ribbon was cute and had a great personality. She should have been playable at SOME point in the game. (No spoilers)
3. The artwork. People keep asking for a 3d Kirby game. I say, who needs one. I just can't picture it in my head. For the button design I think of, you would need, like, 4 whole hands! I think it was okay with the backround being 3d.
4. The…Read more >
So, the Ancients were a race of inventors of unknown origin. They completed their best achievement: the Galactic Nova. They were celebrating their success, when a traitor emerged. That traitor was none other than Galacta Knight himself. He turned on them, planning to wipe out the entire race. He killed ALL of them, save one. Meta Knight. He created the Master Crown, a treasure that will seek out a hero and bestow him with great power. But Galacta Knight was one step ahead. He made it turn the hero evil when it was aquired. Finally, Meta Knight used the Nova to seal him up in a crystal prison, and entrusted the crown with the Landia sisters, who stood on top of Dangerous Dinner. He also put in the Lor Starcutter. He then fled to Popstar, wh…Read more >
Now, most people like to include Magolor in his C-R-O-W-N-E-D form. I think he would work better as his normal form, and save the other form for his final smash. He IS shown to use powers in the Kirby theme park.Without any more interuptions, let the moveset begin!
Neutral-B: Power Orb. Magolor raises his hand into the sky, and an orb comes down. When the button is released, it flies fowards, doing 8%. If the button is held, more orbs will come down from the sky, launching in multiple directions. Maximum is 6.
Side-B: Enemy Summon. Similar to Dedede's side in Brawl, Magolor will launch an enemy fowards. He can toss a Waddle Dee, which will do 2% on contact, A Waddle Doo, which will do 5% when hit with beam, A Beetley, Who will hit the enemy …Read more >
People complain about how Meta Knight and King Dedede got games where they were the "Player 2" but not Bandanna Dee. Wasn't he in Rainbow Curse? He was the only other returning character, he appears in the intro, AND there are 3 of him!Read more >
I say this for many reasons. 1, HE'S A PLANET DESTROYER. If he was depictad as equal as, say, Olimar, he would be humiliated! 2, He's a hidden final boss often, and his trophy would contain SPOILERS BEYOND SPOILERS. 3, He would likely be but a clone of Meta Knight. He doesn't deserve that. He must be his own character. and 4, He would be 100% OP. i think if we want a new Kirby character, we should stick with Bandanna Dee or Magolor.Read more >
I may LOOOOVE kirby, but I only have 4 games! I want to expand it, so 8 Kirby titles in 1 might do the trick! I'll admit I haven't tried hard to find one, but I NEEEEED IT!Read more >
There are many Copy Abilities in the Kirby franchise, and with that, changes are inevitable. Some receive moves that are later not used, other times abilities are merged due to their similarities. These are some of the things I'm going to talk about: move-set additions and merging abilities. Keep in mind, not all of the merges are what I want per se, I'm just saying that they're similar and/or that it's a possibility. As for move-sets... I like variety in my moves, although I can admit that some of these might get excessive in order to cram in as many moves as possible. Let's start with building up the move-sets.
In the early days of Kirby, most Copy Abilities only had a single move. In the Dark Matter trilogy, this was somewhat expanded by…Read more >
I'm going to be honest. I've just been falling into old habits and staring at the "Recent Wiki Activity" screen for the last half an hour or so. But the more I stare at it, the more I feel like there's nothing really going on like there was two years ago. Though, that' probably because it's 11:35 PM here...
I don't know. I've been gone for two years or so. A lot has changed around here, I surmise. Heck, the layout is somewhat different. I can't remember who were admins and who weren't when I left. I think there was only three of us at the time. Changtau2005 came back at one point. And then, uh, yeah. I just kind of lost touch. It's good to see that the threat of vandals seem almost non-existent, though. I'm sure one or two stumble in every no…Read more >
Bomb has been severly nerfed from RTDL to TD. It fires slower, and is less fin to play with. I know it was because small-screen and it would be less fun and blab blah blah BLARRRF! I CALL BALONEY ON THAT! It would have made little difference just because it was back to portable! At least Robobot fixed that out for some things, but Bomb remains awful! #makebombgreatagainRead more >
It was a decent game with cute characters, a unique artwork and gameplay style, And it was the first Kirby game on Wii U! (The final boss sucked, though) It was overall 8/10, real neat. But now, everyone seems to have forgotten about it! What happened?Read more >
So you all know about the extra modes, right? Where you re-play the game (Usually not as Kirby) exept it's harder? There are countless theories about why they are. What's your favorite? I can't say for the ones pre-Robobot, but I have one for Meta Knightmare Returns. As it was under attack by the power drill, Star Dream, combined with the Nova, made an alternate dimension where everything was, well, more powerful, and WITHOUT KIRBY. When the Halberd flies off in the ending, Meta Knight is going to that dimension. BUT, Star Dream forgot to implement his mind in his alternate self, so instead of seeing MK as a threat, he beleives him to be the new admin. Post your theories in the comments!Read more >
Don't get me wrong, Kirby: Planet Robobot is a great game, and a great Kirby game (Return to Dream Land is still my favorite though). It still uses the same general formula as KRtDL as well, but while looking through my pros and cons of this game, I found that various ones were about the same thing. I had some things that I both liked and didn't like at the same time, hence "bittersweet." While I'll probably still talk about some of the things I exclusively enjoyed, I'll mostly be going with some of the topics that had a bit of both.
To start off, Copy Abilities. I've never had a Copy Ability I explicitly hated (not even Sleep, mind you), and that's still the case here, although some obviously have more love than others. The game takes a lo…Read more >
Hello, and thanks for visiting my blog post! I'm so glad you could stop bye.
I have the unusual pleasure of having a Waddle Dee stopping at my house, and, for this week only (maybe longer if this is popular), he will answer all of your Waddle-Dee-related questions! Just leave a comment down below, and we will answer it.
If you're interested in having another character do an AMA (Ask Me Anything), feel free to leave that in the comments as well.
Here's an example of the format I would like for a question:
Q: Hello, Waddle Dee, what is your name?
And I would answer...
A: I am Waddle Dee #3141592, but you can call me Kenry.
Have fun!Read more >
EDIT: Done! Thanks to Iqskirby for replacing the icons.
To any active editors that might see this...
I've recently uploaded a slew of borderless Copy Ability icons from Nightmare in Dream Land and Amazing Mirror to replace the bordered icons we have now. However, I do not have the time to go through each and every article to replace these icons myself, so I would like anyone who reads this to do it in my stead.
The icons I've uploaded are named as such:
- File:iconKNIDLKATAM.png for icons that show up in both games;
- File:iconKNIDL.png for icons that are exclusive to Nightmare in Dream Land;
- File:iconKATAM.png for icons that are exclusive to Amazing Mirror.
You can also see this page for the icons I've uploaded.Read more >
Alright, it's time for that blog post I'd promised earlier. I'd mentioned earlier of my idea of creating a sort of map of Popstar. Now I'm going to explain it in full. For reference, I'm not going to be including locations in spin-offs/small sub-games, Canvas Curse (we don't know if it actually takes place in Dream Land or not), and the anime. So, let's get to it.
So, we need a generalization of what Popstar looks like. Kirby's Dream Land 3 and Kirby's Return to Dream Land both use the five corners or quintants (you know, like quadrant, but 5; I don't think it's an official word) of Popstar for their locations. Considering a star is a 2-dimensional shape, it has a front and a back. The landmarks of KDL3 could be on one side, with KRtDL on t…Read more >
I'll admit, I wasn't really sure if I would continue this series for Nintendo's E3 2016 presentation. I was more than a little disappointed with the announcement that Nintendo would be holding a 'Treehouse' event and would only be showcasing two games on Day 1, again breaking the mold of their previous run of Digital Events and Nintendo Directs. Because of the fact that this presentation was rather different, I'll be showcasing some of the more notable elements of the presentation factor along with the games themselves.
This E3 has had absolutely nothing to do with the Kirby series, but I suppose that's to be expected- after all, we did just get Planet Robobot.

New Copy Abilities get introduced in almost every Kirby game. Some stick around for many games, while others may appear in only a few, and some in only one. Here are all of the Copy Abilities that have only appeared in a single game (not counting anime only, Final Weapons, K64 mixes, Super Abilities, etc.; excluding remakes and the new ones introduced in KPR)
- Bomb variants*
- Sword variants*

Another Kirby game to come out. It appears and acts similar to Return to Dream Land and Triple Deluxe. I've been noticing a trend with these games which I think is bound to continue for quite a while. Warning, minor spoilers
For starts, the Copy Abilities act much like their Super Star (Ultra) incarnations, and non-Super-Star Copy Abilities and new Copy Abilities replicate this. Each game has at least 20 regular Copy Abilities and adds at least three new ones to the roster. Return to Dream Land wasLeaf, Whip, Water, and Spear. Triple Deluxe was Beetle, Bell, Archer, and Circus. Planet Robobot is Poison, Doctor, and ESP. "Old" abilities that were added in Return to Dream Land were Spark, Needle, Tornado, and High Jump. In Triple Deluxe, Whee…Read more >
Hey guys, Plasmaster here with my first Kirby theory. Today's theory is about the Haltmann Works Company from Kirby: Planet Robobot. Warning: Spoilers for Planet Robobot ahead, read at your own risk.
Okay, so my theory is that Magolor's race, the people of Halcandra, have fled their home planet and that the last remaining members of Magolor's race are the people of the Haltmann Works Company.
Both Susie and President Max Profitt Haltmann, higher-ups of the Haltmann Works Company, have floating hands that are not connected to their body. They do appear to have more mechanized bodies than that of Magolor though, so why is this? Well, I think that they left Halcandra because they either discovered Magolor's plans and didn't want to get involved…Read more >
So, Planet Robobot is being released veeeery soon in Japan, meaning that we'll be getting final information on everything appearing in the game rather soon. With that said, what elements do you want to see in Planet Robobot that hasn't been featured or shown off yet?
Personally, my hopes consist of:
- Some more returning abilities: where is Spear, Bell, or Beetle?
- Some more old returning abilities. Jet, UFO, and Mirror isn't enough really: I'd love to see something like Missile or Yo-Yo, though, as well as Water.
- More mid-bosses: outside of new ones, maybe bring back Dubior, Bombar, or Master Green.
- Some boxes from past-games, maybe HR-D3, Mega Titan, or even Metal General.
- MAYBE one or two new Robobot modes: I'd prefer to see Mirror or Poison.
Apparently, Kirby: Planet Robobot is coming out in a few weeks in Japan. Does anyone on the wiki have/know someone a Japanese 3DS or live in Japan? It would be really helpful for some extra info.Read more >
