''Hoshi no Kaabii'' (''Kirby of the Stars'') is an anime adaptation of ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'', a Creator/{{Nintendo}} PlatformGame franchise, better known in the United States by [[CompletelyDifferentTitle its dub title]], ''Kirby: Right Back At Ya!''. It was a joint production by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory (Warpstar Inc.). The anime was licensed by [[FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids Entertainment]], so of course, a lot of the darker elements from the Japanese version were {{Bowdlerise}}d out, but the dub was still successful, managing to stay on air for [[Recap/KirbyRightBackAtYa all 100 episodes]].

* SoBadItsGood: {{In-universe}}. In the dub, Tiff calls Dedede's self-made cartoon (''Dedede: Comin' at Ya'', or ''Dedede of the Stars'' in the original) this. Fans have theorized this might also be a bit of SelfDeprecation on [[FourKidsEntertainment 4KiDS's]] part.

* FoulFlower: In "The Flower Plot", Whispy Woods has the fortune of having a flower grow right in front of him, which he names Lovely. However, King Dedede transforms Lovely into a monster. Like in the video games, Lovely deceives others with her adorable face. Unlike the games, she goes OneWingedAngel and tries to suck the life out of Whispy.

** Just as he does in his game series, Kirby will do this to beat his enemies at times. Not that often though.

** Several of the monsters King Dedede ordered/used tried to do this to Kirby.
*** In ''The Big Taste Test'' Popon, disguised as Chef Shitake, was going to try to eat Kirby until Kawasaki intervened. He then turned into a giant BlobMonster and tried to dissolve everyone with his segments until Kirby cooked him as Chef Kirby.
*** In ''Flower Power'', King Dedede got Kirby to eat a Noddy which put him a DeepSleep that could only be broken by a sniff of the Pukey Flower. However, it's a ManEatingPlant that nearly eats everyone. Fortunately, Tuff managed to get a petal to Kirby who woke up, became Needle Kirby, and allowed Meta Knight to roast the bloom with a torch.
*** In ''A Half Baked Battle'', Belly Buster, a pie monster who becomes enraged after the taste of his pies is insulted, turns into a giant stomach and manages to get King Dedede, Escargoon, and Kirby inside of it. Dedede tries to get themselves out with a bomb but Kirby sucks it up, becomes Bomb Kirby, and blows the monster up from the inside.
*** In ''Power Ploy'', Red Viper is sent to destroy Kirby after Kirby loses his energy from an energy sapping drink. After beating him around, Red Viper then tries to swallow Kirby who has just enough energy to hold his mouth open. Fortunately, Kawasaki is able to through energy filled curry mix to Kirby who than proceeds to beat the monster down and HurlItIntoTheSun.
*** In episode ''Shell Shocked'', Escargoon has his snail shell broken by King Dedede. He eventually puts one on from Nightmare Enterprises which turns him into a demon beast called Maimaigoon. The beast zaps everyone and tries to eat Kirby with its massive tongue. But then Dedede charges at the beast. Kirby sucks up his hammer and is able to become Hammer Kirby and DropTheHammer on the beast's shell, turning Escargoon back to normal.
*** In ''Frog Wild'', Dedede ordered the Heavy Anaconda to do this to Kirby after Kirby become [[DemonicPossession possessed]] by the Demon Frog. Unfortunately, by the time the snake arrives, King Dedede took the frog for himself and ends up [[{{Irony}} getting eaten himself]]. Fortunately, Kirby is able to burn the beast to a crisp with Fire Kirby.

* TheCameo: Escargoon, Max Flexer, Captain Doo, and Customer Service appear briefly in ''VideoGame/KirbyMassAttack''. So far, they're the only anime-specific characters to ever appear in the games.

** Galaxia, Meta Knight's sword, has its pronged appearance (originating from the anime) in ''Amazing Mirror'' [[spoiler:apparently]] and ''[[SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros Brawl]]''. As well, art for Meta Knight has had him carrying a pronged, golden sword, even if his sprite doesn't; often or not now, his sword is just gold. Additionally, the sword was first referred to as Galaxia in the anime and the name has been used since ''Brawl''.
