What the player sees is not reality. This "cute" appearance is done for stylistic reasons; all the characters are human. Kirby doesn't really inhale things; he is a [[{{Badass}} warrior/magician who has the ability to copy powers.]]

This guy can suck up nearly anything and copy its powers, then use those powers against [[EldritchAbomination things that just shouldn't be]]. He's quite clearly an EldritchAbomination, and a very powerful one, after a HeelFaceTurn. For any other being not named [[{{God}} YHVH]], even the most {{Badass}} of them, a Kirby game would more closely resemble ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy'', [[UpToEleven but harder]]. Indeed, there's a reason the hero in ''VideoGame/YouHaveToBurnTheRope'' is so Kirby-like: that's Kirby, after swallowing Indiana Jones, going through a "normal" game.

''Milky Way Wishes'': Marx is probably from Halcandra (Magolor's planet), not Pop Star. He is already familiar from Kirby, who has become well-known around the galaxy for being a {{badass}}. As such, he knows that Kirby will be willing to help him if peace in the galaxy is on the line, so he gets the sun and moon to fight and then sends Kirby to wake up NOVA. Citizens of Pop Star are unfamiliar with NOVA and the other Fountains of Dreams, but Marx knows about all of them since they were ''probably'' build on Halcandra. Kirby successfully summons NOVA, who he is forced to destroy after being betrayed by Marx. He then defeats Marx, and the resulting impact completely obliterates NOVA.

* King Dedede is the official guardian of the Dreamland, as Kirby isn't interested in the job. He's an AntiVillain because RousseauWasRight is a major theme of Nintendo (and again, children). Meta Knight represents the more cynical aspects of imagination, dreamt up by older individuals. Whispy Woods is a dream involving trees, Kracko comes from trying to find images in clouds, Paint Roller is just a cool dude, and Mr. Shine/Mr. Bright are the Man on the Moon/Face of the Sun respectively. [[Videogame/SuperMarioBros I'm assuming Mario dreamt up Mr. Bright.]]

* That doesn't mean he doesn't like to help, like in 64 or KRtDL. Both in 64 and KRtDL, it's because the shard falls upon him/he witnesses the ship fall. He simply helps because he saw it in front of him.

* And Dark Matter? Dark Matter is the devil itself. Hence why it takes the form of a fallen angel as O[[superscript]]2[[/superscript]]. Doesn't this all make sense now?

Seen on Website/GameFAQs, of all places. When Meta Knight finds Nova, he tells him that his one wish is to become stronger and stronger. Notice how Meta Knight doesn't need to explain WHY he wants to fight the ultimate warrior; all Marx had to do is say "I want to control Pop Star!" and that's it. No questions asked. Obviously, this was meant as exposition for the player. Sometime in the future, Meta Knight will reach a level of power that threatens all of Dream Land, and he may unleash another [[WellIntentionedExtremist Well-Intentioned-Extremism]]-fueled rampage. The result will probably end in Meta Knight either dying or being sealed away by Kirby or Dedede's hand, if they haven't been killed by Meta Knight already. [[HereWeGoAgain This will probably happen again and again]] [[StableTimeLoop one way or another.]]

** The Kirbies in Amazing Mirror are actually mirror copies of Kirby, so it makes sense they would have his powers, and TAC (and low-health Helpers) doesn't copy things the same way Kirby does. But we still have Keeby and the PaletteSwapped Kirbies from Air Ride and ReturnToDreamLand.

* In "Revenge of the King", right before you fight King DeDeDe, you fight a "Boss" Waddle Dee with a bandana who can be killed in one hit by inhaling and swallowing him. Either way, he sits and watches as the only member in the audience while you fight King DeDeDe.

Dedede.




Years later King Dedede had easily taken over the planet. But as he got older, it got harder to use his power. When he hit puberty, he couldn't do it anymore. He made sure he had the hammer power, his favorite, before that happened. Right around that time, another piece of Dark Matter fell upon a Waddle dee.DHe eventually realized how different he was and thinking he was a freak, ran away. He passed the lonely days by practicing the sword ability. People who saw glimpses of him called him "Meta Knight"

Specifically, it's Nintendo's answer to [[ComicBook/TheSandman Vertigo's The Dreaming]] -- a realm personifying the dreams, fantasizes and imagination of Nintendo's series. Its lighthearted nature comes from children being the most imaginative, [[VileVillainSaccharineShow along with its antagonists.]] Why are so many villains [[GenericDoomsdayVillian simple?]] [[JustifiedTrope They're children's dreams/nightmares.]] Why is the titular hero BadassAdorable? What do you expect a young child to dream up? The same goes for the cute enemies and animal friends. As for the characters:

As they age, they eventually settle down onto a single powerset based on common usage and personality, like daemons in HisDarkMaterials. Meta-Knight, for example, settled on the Sword power. Presumably, the advantage to settling like that is that you can keep the powers even after being hit very hard and such. Kirby can still copy because he's still a baby.

** This is good, but there are some [[CriticalResearchFailure errors]] regarding this theory:
--> 1. Daroache's theme in Mass Attack is called "Daroache Reunion," meaning that he has already met Kirby (or in this case the Kirbies) before. At no point does Daroache get to introduce himself in Squeak Squad, so if he was starting over, this would be the best time to "properly" introduce himself.
--> 2. Aren't Spring Breeze and the first game practically the one and the same? Both of them involve Dedede stealing all the food in Dream Land.
--> 3. One of Stone Kirby's transformations in Triple Deluxe is a statue of both Marx ''and'' Magolor. So how could Kirby turn into a statue of the two of them, if he never knew the second? So I would probably restructure it like this:

* Kirby’s Dream Land / Spring Breeze (Kirby Super Star)
* Kirby’s Dream Land 2
* Kirby’s Dream Land 3
* Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards
* Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land
* Dyna Blade (Kirby Super Star)
* The Great Cave Offensive (Kirby Super Star)
* Revenge of Meta Knight (Kirby Super Star)
* Milky Way Wishes (Kirby Super Star)
* Kirby: Squeak Squad
* Kirby: Canvas Curse
* Kirby Mass Attack
* Meta Knightmare Ultra (Kirby Super Star Ultra)
* Kirby’s Return to Dream Land
* Kirby & the Amazing Mirror
* Story Mode (Kirby: Triple Deluxe)
* Kirby’s Epic Yarn
* Dededetour (Kirby: Triple Deluxe)
* Revenge of the King (Kirby Super Star Ultra)
* Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
* Gourmet Race (Kirby Super Star)
* New Challenge Stages (Kirby’s Dream Collection: Special Edition)
* Kirby Planet Robobot
