Kirby is the titular and main character of Nintendo's Kirby series. He is a pink puffball with stubby hands and red feet. This appearance can be misleading as he is courageous and tough. He will stop at nothing to save his home planet, Pop Star, from any enemies, including the dastardly King Dedede and any extraterrestrial invaders. Kirby's trademark move is his Copy Ability which allows him to inhale an enemy and copy its powers.

Canonically Kirby has appeared in every Kirby game to date, which is appropriate as he is both the main protagonist and playable character of the series. Kirby has also appeared in various manners through cameos or as representation for his series (often alongside fellow characters; Meta Knight and King Dedede) in other games such as the Super Smash Bros. Games.
Kirby Fan Games
In Neverworld Kirby becomes the second Meta Knight. He has been confirmed to take the original Meta Knight's place as Black Knight in the Chess Squad during the Nintendo Civil War. His original armor (right) is rickety and badly made, and is destroyed during a fight with Link. He then upgrades it, becoming more powerful (see below).
In the first few games, it is not stated whether Kirby is alive in this timeframe of Dreamland. However, in Wheelzen Atomic 2: Darth Kirby, Kirby turns himself into Lord Overlord and attempts to destroy the world making him the main villain.
In Kirby D.I.Y, Kirby is the main protagonist in the Play Adventure mode preset adventures and main hero in the game. He is already unlocked at the beginning of the game along with Knuckle Joe.
In this game Kirby is humanized and the main protagonist. He fights to destroy The Infinite to keep Known Space from being ripped apart.
Kirby is the main protagonist of Puffball Party, where he saves Dreamland and Popstar from the forces of evil. He chases after Nightmare in this game.

The Return Trilogy
Kirby is the main playable character of the Return Trilogy, three Kirby games all linked by the common theme of the past coming back to fight Kirby. As such they are classic 2D Platforming Games like most Kirby Games and allow Kirby access to his various Copy Abilities and standard abilities such as inhaling, spitting and sliding.
In Kirby King of Dreamland, Kirby must help save Planet Popstar from being sucked into a massive Black Mass which is revealed to be Dark Matter. The game was the first to feature the return of Dark Matter in true essence and although the Final Boss is not truly Zero is reflected as a very similar Character.
Kirby Doom of Dreamland
In Kirby Doom of Dreamland, Kirby must save Dreamland from having been warped to a mysterious location in which a resurrected Zero warns Kirby that by trying to save Dreamland he will be destroyed. This game featured a more story driven aspect to the trilogy and also introduced the least abilities of the three.
Kirby and three other multicoloured Kirbys are summoned to defeat Nightmare after being released after being defeated earlier. Each coloured Kirby has different personalities to make different from each other.
Kirby is the main character of Kirby: Nova Zoo. The story begins with Kirby eating cake before he and the cake, as well as many residents of Dreamland are abducted by the titular Nova Zoo. Kirby manages to escape his confinement by sucking the glass off his cell, although while looking for his cake he comes across Susie, Marx, Chef Kawasaki, and Gryll. They prepare to fight him before Susie manages to convince them otherwise, making the argument that Kirby is so much stronger than everything on the Zoo and may serve as the only means to escape.
Kirby's strength in this game is accentuated by the sheer amount of powerful abilities he has at his disposal. Not only is the Robobot Armor back, but so is Hypernova from Triple Deluxe and the Super Abilities from Return to Dream Land. He doesn't fight alone though; using Dream Allies, which mostly consist of people Kirby has beaten in the past, he verges on unstoppable with the powers of Susie, Marx, and more.
Kirby takes a major role in saving Planet Popstar from Lady Singulon and her forces, along with King Dedede, Bandana Waddle Dee, Meta Knight, and Marx. He is tasked with collecting the Nova Shrine from Croxan.
Kirby appears as one of the starting characters. Unlike other characters, he has 7 unlockable alternate colors rather than just 3. He is the most balanced character, without any stat modifiers in City Trial mode.
- Stat Modifiers: None
- Special Ability: Copy Ability - Pressing Y inhales any nearby racers, Machine and all, and copies their Special Move, which Kirby can then use. If Kirby inhales another Kirby, he'll get a random power chosen from the currently-unlocked characters.
