* UrbanLegendOfZelda: In the late 2000s there were a bevy of FanWank all centered around "plot elements" that allegedly [[LostInTranslation only existed in the Japanese versions of the games]]. Most of these centered around Dark Matter being TheManBehindTheMan to just about every ''Kirby'' Villain under the sun, with a particularly notorious one claiming Dark Matter was present in ''VideoGame/KirbyCanvasCurse'' and gave Drawcia her powers via DealWithTheDevil becoming widespread enough that it had to be wiped from this very Wiki several times. Funnily enough, some concept art later revealed Dark Matter (along with Nightmare) really ''was'' going to be in ''Canvas Curse'' albeit as a playable character rather than a boss, making it an ''enemy'' of Drawcia rather than an ally as the rumor claimed.

* UrbanLegendOfZelda: No, despite what ''VideoGame/MushroomKingdomFusion'' may have told you, 02 and Dark Matter did ''not'' make any sort of "pact" with Drawcia. Nor is Dark Nebula 02 under another name. The latter theory has been officially {{Jossed}} by the Japanese 20th anniversary booklet (though it does state that Dark Nebula is part of the same species as Dark Matter). Meta Knight also wasn't possessed by anyone during the events of ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar''.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand2'', ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand3'', and ''VideoGame/Kirby64TheCrystalShards'' are collectively known as the "Dark Matter Trilogy'' due to the three games having Dark Matter as the main villain(s). All three games were directed by Shinichi Shimomura instead of series creator Masahiro Sakurai, and have more of a focus on puzzle solving rather than combat.

** The Super NES version of VideoGame/KirbyStarStacker never got released outside of Japan[[note]]Where both versions are known as "Kirby no Kirakira Kids" (lit. "Kirby's Twinkling Kids").[[/note]] due to being released there in 1998 '''two years''' after the Nintendo 64's release.

* FanNickname: King Dedede is sometimes referred to as "DDD", "Triple-D", or "3D".

to:

* FanNickname: FandomLifeCycle: Despite being a long-running series that sells well, having a very recognizable main character, and being adapted into a generally liked anime series, ''Kirby'' is only in Stage 2/early Stage 3. This can be attributed to the games' [[ItsEasySoItSucks limited]] [[TastesLikeDiabetes appeal]] to the bigger game demographics (which also resulted in some CriticalDissonance for the earlier games), inconsistent releases, and being overshadowed by other Nintendo franchises. This may be changing, though, as big representation in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'' and the great reception of the games from ''Return to Dream Land'' onward have given it a lot of attention.

** ''''Kirby Air Ride'' was supposed to have a multi-themed star shaped track, but that got scrapped due to time constraints. It was also supposed to have a much bigger City Trial; the project was really ambitious even for its time.

** 'The artbook bundled with ''Kirby's Dream Collection'' includes unused character designs for some of the characters. Most notable is Meta Knight with red and black [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m7xuylJqjO1ra4czto1_500.jpg butterfly wings]], rather than his purple bat wings.

* NewbieBoom: While it didn't make a CashCowFranchise out of the series the same way the Pokemon anime did, quite a few Kirby fans will admit the anime for the show, ''Anime/KirbyRightBackAtYa'', is what introduced them to the series and it shows. The anime still maintains a dedicated following to this day. So much so that, since its conclusion, HAL has brought [[CanonImmigrant various things from the show into the games]] and even included several of its episodes in Kirby Dream Collection which celebrated the series' 20th anniversary.
