* SacredCow: While ''Kirby'' may not be as popular as other Nintendo franchises, it has an extremely good reputation, and it's rare to find a Nintendo fan that outright hates the games. In recent years, the opinion that Kirby has yet to have a "bad" game is common, which is a rarity among Nintendo series.

In recent years, While some may call a few games "lacking", the opinion that Kirby has yet to have never had a truly "bad" game is common, which is a rarity among Nintendo series.

** One Japanese guidebook for ''Kirby's Dream Land 2'' claimed Dark Matter was a TorturedMonster that attacked Popstar because it was jealous of all the "happiness" there. Just about every fan accepts this as official canon, [[BeamMeUpScotty but they always]] {{flanderiz|ation}}e [[BeamMeUpScotty it into applying to]] Zero/0[[superscript:2]] alone, despite him not being introduced until the sequel (The TearsOfBlood likely have something to do with it... and also the fact that 0 is Dark Matter's ''core'').

* DracoInLeatherPants: Many Kirby fans think Zero is a lonely, sad being that just wants some friends - though this does have some basis in canon, as it's stated that Dark Matter can't feel positive emotions and wants to destroy the world out of jealousy. The awesome battle music probably helps (especially the Zero 2 music mentioned above.)

*** ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily'', ''WebVideo/ThereWillBeBrawl'', and ''WebVideo/SonicForHire'' all play with this, treating Kirby as anything from an EldritchAbomination to a SociopathicHero.

* FridgeBrilliance: Why are the {{Big Bad}}s of the games usually so nightmarish? Because it's ''Dream'' Land, it's only fitting that the antagonists inspire nightmares.
* FridgeHorror: Jim Sterling gives a lecture on the FridgeHorror of the Kirby franchise in [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/jimquisition/4850-National-Kirby-Day this]] episode of the Jimquisition.

** Don't call Kirby [[ViewerGenderConfusion a girl]] [[PinkMeansFeminine just because he's pink]]. If you're lucky, a fan will just politely correct you.

** Don't call Kirby [[ViewerGenderConfusion a girl]] [[PinkMeansFeminine just because he's pink]]. If you're lucky, a fan will just politely correct you. Even in Japan with its GenderNeutralWriting practically none of the fanbase considers Kirby female; the divide is entirely between gender neutral and male.



** Ado and Adeleine are two different characters, with Ado being male. Unless you think that "Ado" is merely how Kirby pronounces Adeleine's name (as the latter's name is pronounced "'''Ado'''rinu" in Japanese). The idea of Ado being male was eventually {{jossed}} in a 20th-anniversary booklet, which confirmed that Ado's a girl.

** There has been a debate over the different kinds of Kirby games ever since ''VideoGame/KirbySqueakSquad''. While not the the extent of the [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZeldaZelda]] franchise's TheyChangedItNowItSucks[=/=]ItsTheSameSoItSucks, there are similarities at its core. Which Kirby experience is better? The Classic style platformers where Kirby absorbs enemies to gain their abilities, or the ones that innovate (the likes of VideoGame/KirbyCanvasCurse or Videogame/KirbysEpicYarn) where the gameplay is given an overhaul. Critics of the former feel the formula grows stale, whilst critics of the latter feel that it's too gimmicky. Of course quite a few fans like both and want to see what Nintendo comes out with next.

** ''Kirby Air Ride'' met a lukewarm reception [[OvershadowedByAwesome due to being sandwiched between]] ''VideoGame/FZero GX'' and ''[[VideoGame/MarioKart Mario Kart: Double Dash!!]]'' Nowadays, it is considered a CultClassic and one of the highlights of the UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube library, particularly for the City Trial mode. In fact, the Smash Run mode in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' for 3DS was directly stated by Sakurai to be a SpiritualSuccessor to said mode.

** The debate over Console vs. Handheld games, series has a bit of a broken base concerning the quality of the games after ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand3'' and ''VideoGame/Kirby64TheCrystalShards'', like whether an abundance of single-move Copy Abilities or a limited amount of multi-move abilites is the way to go ([[TakeAThirdOption or the "happy medium" in the GBA and DS games]]), and whether or not Nintendo favors one group over the other.
games should stay fresh with new characters or bring back the old ones like Ribbon, Gooey, the Animal Friends, and Adeleine. There are also debates on [[Anime/KirbyRightBackAtYa the anime version]], especially [[SubbingVersusDubbing whether the English or Japanese version is better]].
