If these fics were cake, Kirby would perform horrifying murder to eat them.
These are recommendations made by Tropers for Fan Fics, all of which have been signed. After a few samples, you will be able to judge whether you might be interested in the 'fic, based on who recommended it. No-name recommendations will be zapped. Nobody would back up the rec. Discussion of the recommendation is welcome on the discussion page. As such discussion is important, do remember to add the discussion page to the watchlist, if need be.
Do warn when a fanfic may head into non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.
Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.Premonition by Star Dew

Synopsis: Yeah, Kirby fanfiction. Just hear me out. Premonition - y'know, that guy that was mentioned once or twice as Knuckle Joe's dad in the anime? His fan name is Jecra. Knuckle Joe travels into the past to try to stop Jecra from dying and Nightmare from winning... by giving him Meta Knight's journal, which always has entries dated a few days later than the actual date, giving him a sneak peek into the future.
Comments: Features some beautiful writing and action scenes.
Unfortunately, the story as well as the author's account have been deleted, along with the rest of the author's equally well-written stories.
Synopsis: "A year after Nightmare's defeat, news of a dark army shatters the short time of peace. Meta Knight leads Kirby and his comrades on another desperate journey to defeat him once and for all. Will uncovering Kirby's secrets be the key?"
Comments: I'm surprised nothing by Ivy has been recced yet. This fic has really nice writing. There's a lot more to it than what it says on the package.
Synopsis: Popopo lived a peaceful life on the planet Dreamland, until the hostile takeover of King Dedede. Follow him though his trials as he becomes a star warrior in this interesting AU look into the Kirby universe
Comments: Actually this is the story of GameTrekker learning how to write disguised as a Kirby fic. The writing is iffy for the first thirty or so chapters until it gets good.
Synopsis: "Kirby's simple personality and way of life passes onto Metaknight with a single playful action from the child warrior. Was it just what Metaknight needed? Or was a balance in the world broken by this?"
This is a very sweet story, but the best thing about this fic is Kirby, Sword and Blade's reaction to the mind bending insanity unfolding before them. The only person OOC in this fic is Meta Knight, however, that's a good reason for that...
Synopsis: What if Galacta Knight of KSSU was in the plot of the show? What would his story be – his ties with Meta Knight and the Galaxy Soldier Army? This is primarily a Kirby show/Kirby Super Star Ultra game crossover, set in the show's universe.
One of the rare instances where trying to write Galacta Knight into the Kirby of the StarsAlternate Universe is done well. It needs a chapter or two to get started, and once it does, it's awesome. Also offers a realistic interpretation of Meta Knight's backstory.
Synopsis: Funny, how wishes can change. Marx's life, before he wished to control Popstar - from his PoV. 'Scuz the general crappiness.
Comments: Though it starts off a little slow, it's actually a pretty amazing fic that details Marx's life pre-MWW, as the synopsis says. Marx's development from a slightly weird but nice kid to a psychotic murderer is written so realistically it's absolutely terrifying—in a good way.
Seconded: This is one of the few well-written M-Rated stories in FFN's Kirby fanfiction archive, and the rising action that builds up to the climax is what makes this fic memorable. It may seem to start out as an average fluff-and-bunny fic set in a Town with a Dark Secret, but oh boy, it only gets worse. Like said above, the characters are extremely vivid and the gradual buildup to the final scene and Title Drop makes it well worth the time spent reading it.
Synopsis: Shortly after his defeat, Magolor ends up in the inferno. He meets and befriends Marx and other villains who have all fallen to Kirby's skill. As they band together to gain the keys to a second chance on the surface, secrets are revealed, souls are unbound, and the past comes back to haunt both Magolor and Marx.
Well, this is certainly a first—it's the first part of a 100+ page Kirby doujin trilogy (which is almost unheard of, for this fandom) done in gijinka form! Contains major spoilers for Kirby's Return to Dream Land, and explores Magolor's backstory, as well as the origin of the Lor Starcutter, before Kirby and his crew battle Magolor Soul.
While none of it been translated yet, it's definitely worth looking at, because the art is absolutely amazing and incredibly badass. This pixiv artist has done gijinka designs for nearly every prominent Kirby character, including their anime designs, and follows it up with another work that ties both the anime and game canons together.
