** If Gooey is related to Dark Matter [[AllThereInTheManual as implied by the anniversary booklet]], why is he good? Why does he look so much different from all other Dark Matter?

* LoveItOrHateIt: You'll either love the slower paced gameplay, Gooey, [[PowerUpMount Animal Friends]] and scribbly graphics of ''Dream Land 3'' or hate it for just the same reasons. The most hardcore of the fanbase generally like it, though. This is due to said game being released with the more popular and fast-paced ''Kirby Super Star''.

* MemeticPsychopath: Kirby himself, since many of his enemies, especially Waddle Dees, are mostly harmless so long as you leave them alone.

** There has been a debate over the different kinds of Kirby games ever since ''VideoGame/KirbySqueakSquad''. While not the the extent of the [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]] 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 Creator/{{Nintendo}} comes out with next.

** Kirby [[{{Misblamed}} suffers a reputation]] for NiceJobBreakingItHero when he's actually a victim of PoorCommunicationKills, because nobody tells him what's going on until it's far too late to do anything about it, or he's being a gullible UnwittingPawn for the real baddie, and the good guys ''still'' won't talk to him.
* PeripheryDemographic: Though the games are and remain mostly geared for people beginning to play video games, a good chunk of the fanbase are experienced gamers who grew up playing them and who gleefully return to each new installment, no matter how short or easy it is. It helps that the games tend to be well made, and make up for the easiness by putting the difficulty into OneHundredPercentCompletion.

* CompleteMonster:
** [[ManipulativeBastard Marx]]. When first introduced, Marx comes off as extremely [[FauxAffablyEvil kind and helpful]], telling Kirby to use the power of the surrounding stars to summon Nova and wish for the sun and moon to stop fighting. However, when Kirby succeeds in gathering the stars and summon Nova, Marx knocks Kirby aside to make his own wish--complete control of Popstar. He reveals that he actually tricked the Sun and Moon into fighting each other, tricked Kirby into doing his dirty work for him, and that this was all part of a master plan to conquer Popstar. After leaving Kirby to die in space and sending Nova to ColonyDrop Popstar, the power Kirby had gathered comes together and creates a Starship for him to stop Nova with. When Kirby destroys Nova's heart, an enraged Marx tries to kill Kirby himself.

* HellIsThatNoise:
** Combining this with MostAnnoyingSound gives you [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thahQTUE7WU the final phase]] of Revenge Of Meta Knight.
** The music for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I3kGiA3EGP4 Ripple Star's second level]]. The cute SugarBowl of the first level is [[MoodWhiplash quickly cut off]] when you reach the second and are welcomed with the ruined fairy castle and hear that ScareChord dirge.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfHah9s6BWE That... bloodcurling... scream!]]
** Most bosses that have a vocal laugh can qualify as this, namely [[VideoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe Queen Sectonia]] and [[VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot President Haltmann]], both of whom laugh constantly in their boss fights. Also combined with MostAnnoyingSound. The latter is even worse in that [[spoiler: you can faintly hear his death cries as Star Dream Soul OS's core gets more and more damaged]].

* SacredCow: While ''Kirby'' may not be as popular as other Creator/{{Nintendo}} franchises, it has an extremely good reputation, and it's rare to find a Nintendo fan that outright hates the games. Additionally, while some may call a few games "lacking", the opinion that Kirby has never had a truly "bad" game is common, which is a rarity among Nintendo series.
