Character Description

The intrigue and popularity surrounding Meta Knight within the Kirby fandom largely lies in his shrouded motives and his striking likeness to Kirby himself. Due to Meta Knight's way of doing things and his oft-hidden intentions, the relationship between Kirby and Meta Knight are unpredictable in nature and range from anywhere between being bitter rivals, to being strong allies to one another and can change at a moment's notice. He rsepects a code of honour and always gives Kirby a sword whenever he fights againts him. Meta Knight is the leader of an army of soldiers known as the Meta-Knights, and captains a giant battleship known as the Halberd. Meta Knight is almost never seen without his trademark mask on. He also has the ability to turn his cape into a pair of wings which enable him to fly and glide.


Meta Knight is a small, light character which can be hard to KO and Grab. Meta Knight's cape provides him with 5 mid-air jumps and the ability to glide. Almost all of his attacks are based on Galaxia, his sword. These attacks have long range and are very fast, but not very powerful. Meta Knight's Special Moves allow him to quicly inflict damage to his opponents. His Mach Tornado can inflict up to 26% damage if used correctly, enabling him to use his Smash Attacks more effectively. His Side Special Move as well as him Up Special Move provide him with excellent horizontal and vertical recovery. Meta Knight can also teleport with his Down Special Move and attack unaware opponents from behind. All in all, Meta Knight is a character who specializes in quick movement more than power.
