Knight Errant is a fanficton based on the Kirby franchise. It features a combination of both [[{{Kirby}} the Kirby game]] and [[Anime/KirbyOfTheStars the Kirby anime]] universes, and implies that the anime universe and the game universe are one and the same (the anime occured first, followed by the events of the games).

Knight Errant can be read [[http://fav.me/d2vucws here.]]

!! This fanfic provides examples of:
* [[spoiler: BreakTheCutie: Done to Kirby when he finds out that hes been manipulated into working for [=NightMare=] Enterprises for over a century, all while he thought he was helping the Star Warriors.]]
* {{Chessmaster}}: Nightmare is an incredibly clever one. Through both this and XanatosSpeedChess he is able to [[spoiler: trick Kirby into working against the Star Warriors.]]
* ChromaticArrangement: The three Cirriusi who work at the Windy Ridge Ship Station. Lafayette is pink, Sander is yellow and Dixon is blue.
* DeadpanSnarker: Sabre Knight is the most notable example. Sword Knight and Blade Knight also do their fair share of behind-the-scenes snarking.
* TheDitz: Kirby is definitely one. [[CharacterDevelopment He matures over the course of the story.]]
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The format becomes noticeable and more consistent as the story goes on.
* EvilLaugh: Nightmare has a habit of doing this.
* EvilOverlord: Nightmare, again.
* GoldDigger: [[spoiler: Mint]] is this to Kirby, who is too nave to realize hes being taken advantage of.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: While Galacta Knight doesnt die, Nightmare uses the last of his energy to trap Galacta Knight inside unbreakable crystals.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Sabre Knight is the most notable example, but Sword Knight qualifies.
* KnightErrant: Bet you saw this one coming. [[spoiler: BUT it is subverted.]]
* KnightKnaveAndSquire: Meta Knight, Sword Knight, Blade Knight, and Kirby are a four-member variation of this, with [[CaptainObvious Meta Knight being the knight]], Sword and Blade being the knave(s), and (young) Kirby being the squire.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: [[spoiler: Right before Kirby goes to fight Nightmare, he comments I was just thinking that this would make an awesome boss battle!]]
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: Lafayette and Dixon.
* Sailor Earth: Zero Seven.
* ScriptFic: A somewhat unusual one, but it fits the format.
* XanatosSpeedChess: [[spoiler: Nightmare and Marx both play their share of it to keep Kirby on track in their highly convoluted plan.]]
