* Meta Knight has been in absolute ''command'' of the fandom's attention from his debut, not only as both Dedede's DragonWithAnAgenda and TheCaptain of the Meta-Knights [[spoiler: but also as the only other known member of Kirby's species for over a dozen years until ''Super Star Ultra'' introduced Galacta Knight]]. Following his debut, he immediately became an AscendedExtra and the BigBad of one of ''Super Star'''s mini-games, and then a series of major plot roles and occasionally playable appearances (starting with ''Nightmare in Dreamland''), both in his home series and in ''Super Smash Bros.'' He's absent from ''Triple Deluxe'', for some reason ([[spoiler: though Dark Meta Knight returns as the final boss of Dededetour]]), but finally returns in full glory for ''Planet Robobot''.
* Galacta Knight from ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar Ultra'', who, despite merely being a BonusBoss for the VideoGameRemake, gained huge popularity with the fandom, particularly in the area of [[WildMassGuessing speculation]] regarding his relation to Meta Knight.
** Apparently, the higher-ups were savvy enough to pick up on this, as [[spoiler:Galacta Knight returns as a BonusBoss in The True Arena of ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand'' and later as the FinalBoss of Meta Knightmare Returns in ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot''.]]
* Rick, Kine, and Coo, the animal friends from ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand2'', are beloved by the fanbase, enough that in spite of only being part of the gameplay in their debut game and [[VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand3 its sequel]], they make cameos throughout the series. They even got to appear in [[Anime/KirbyOfTheStars the anime]] in spite of the fact that they were not created by Sakurai.
** Nago, Chuchu, Pitch, and Gooey, the animal friends from ''Kirby's Dream Land 3'', are also quite popular for similar reasons as Rick, Kine, and Coo. In particular, Pitch grew on fans for having some of the best copy ability variants in the game, and Chuchu gained some extra leverage for the amount of ShipTease she had with Kirby. Gooey also has his own group of fans for his quirky design, characterization, and backstory (he's a specimen of [[EldritchAbomination Dark Matter]] who took a HeelFaceTurn and befriended Kirby).
* The one-shot characters from ''[[VideoGame/Kirby64TheCrystalShards Kirby 64]]'', such as Adeleine, Ribbon, and 0[[superscript:2]] have a TON of fanart for them. 0[[superscript:2]] may mainly have been popular due to being surprisingly symbolic for a ''Kirby'' game (he has an angelic appearance and spits out blood) and due to his [[AwesomeMusic/{{Kirby}} awesome battle music]]. 0[[superscript:2]] even got a remix of his theme music in ''Brawl''. Ribbon's popularity is probably due to her [[ImpliedLoveInterest implied relationship]] with Kirby. Adeleine became a recurring character in the webcomic ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily''.
* Bandana Dee, [[AscendedExtra who went from]] one-shot opponent in a ''Super Star'' minigame, to the confirmed identity of the Waddle Dee boss in the remake (with speaking parts!), to a playable character in ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand'', is gaining in popularity lately. Some {{Fanon}} even holds that he's the same Waddle Dee who partnered with Kirby in ''Kirby 64,'' just without his IconicItem.
** [[LampshadeHanging Hell, just take a look at his pause screen description in]] ''[[LampshadeHanging Return to Dream Land]]'' [[LampshadeHanging and the first words you'll see are "Hey, it's everyone's idol!"]]
** In the time between ''Return to Dream Land'' and ''Planet Robobot'' he has made more appearances than both Meta Knight and King Dedede.
** He's even become a very popular request for ''Super Smash Bros.'', and given how important he is nowadays, it's easy to see why some people thought he might have been a candidate to be put in.
* Many of the enemies may also qualify, such as Waddle Doo and Knuckle Joe (who might both owe this to [[Anime/KirbyRightBackAtYa the anime]]).
** Sword Knight definitely qualifies. Despite not appearing as often as Blade Knight, he has a large fanbase.

* The Flame Demon Beast Wolfwrath was also met with lovely reception for being a badass, fire-breathing wolf monster and for having a part in Sword Knight and Blade Knight's pledging of allegiance to Meta Knight for saving them from it. It's become the first Demon Beast to actually injure Meta Knight (in this case, paralyze him by embedding one of its own fangs into his forehead), and it even helps that it looks delightfully terrifying in appearance. Some of its fanart would depict it as either scarier or cuter, even to the point where some fans draw a baby Wolfwrath puppy.

* For such an underused character, Sirica, the daughter of the legendary Galaxy Soldier Garlude who appeared in Episode 60, happens to be insanely popular with fans of the anime. She earned her love for being a badass ActionGirl with a transforming weapon, and for being able to put up a decent fight as a contrast from main character Tiff (who often ends up being a damsel in distress). She was even popular enough so that she herself even reappeared alongside Knuckle Joe, Sir Arthur and his three knights in the five-part series finale.
