Characters who debuted in Kirby's Epic Paper 2
King DededeA self proclaimed king(?) who went from being a rival to a friendly rival to Kirby.
- The Bet: Was on a losing streak so he bet his entire castle. Unfortunately, he was playing against Kazooie who has experience in poker, or at least card games in general.
- Put on a Bus: Shortly after arriving in Ostura Town, he declares his want to make it his new kingdom but supposedly delays it when he gets brought to a restaurant.
- Uncertain Doom: Since it's said String Forrest is where "..lost souls just float around for those who don't want to listen."... King Dedede could possibly be dead. Jossed, as the creator suggested to not think that, as the gang Never Found the Body.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: He's shortly dealt with when he claims (for the second time, first time fire stopped him) his want to take over Ostura Town. Apparently it's implied that King Dedede either left, or was kidnapped as his hammer is found in String Forrest.
Kazooie from Banjo-Kazooie.
- Deadpan Snarker: Oh definitely. She's still a snarker.
Chad the Kiwi
A kiwi bird shown playing cards alongside King DDD and Kazooie.
- Original Character: George made them to fill in a spot at the table.
Becky's younger brother and by extension the Prince of Ostura.
- Anti-Villain: He primarily wants the best for his kingdom as it was in the past but his method of doing so is helping Kojar.
- Blue Oni, Red Oni: Is the Red to Becky's Blue, due to being quite quick to anger, as reflected in their clothing choice.
- Distressed Dude: Played Straight then Averted. Was shown to be imprisoned by Kojar earlier on in the story when he wanted to chicken out of destroying Ostura Town.
- The Dragon: However, he was later released and is now working alongside him.
- Dude, Where's My Respect?: Ever since he felt the want to become the King of Ostura, he feels like he citizens of Ostura don't respect him enough, preferring his older sister Becky to be the next ruler.
- Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Being the younger sibling, Troy is the foolish to Becky's responsible.
- I Just Want to Be Special: His inner conflict. Originally wanted to take down Kojar by himself to prove his worth but Becky stopped him.
- More Than Mind Control: It's not exactly shown what Kojar said or did to convince Troy (on his Animo page, it's said that it was some interactions and talks) but since they both share the same goal of bring back Ostura's glory days, it probably didn't take much to convince him either way.
- Princeling Rivalry: What he currently plans to do to Becky.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: Aims to collect the wands for his kingdom's sake but he's assisting Kojar while doing so.
- Screw This I'm Outta Here!: When the Sand Wand got knocked out of his possession, it landed in Sand Claw's pit. Seeing Sand Claw emerge, Troy immediately teleports out of the scene.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Apparently enjoys lava shakes as well.
- The Resenter: While he loved or at the very least trusted Becky, it got warped into resentment due to feeling like she'll be the new ruler of Ostura over him.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has purple hair.
The Big Bad of Kirby's Epic Paper 2.
- Boring, but Practical: In Stage 5-5, Kojar uses the Sand Wand to temporarily blind Becky to get a few hits in.
- Curbstomp Battle: He ambushes the heroes in Stage 3-3, quickly KO'ing the group initially to take the 2 Wands they collected. When they catch up and challenge him to a fight, they're quickly out matched. While Becky and Kirby fair a bit better and get a few shots in than Febo and Bandana Dee who lasted a good five seconds, he was just toying with them or rather, testing out the wands he stole.
- The Determinator: Has been trying to obtain all 6 wands for awhile now to no avail up until recently, when Troy started to help him out.
- Knockout Ambush: Does this twice. First in Stage 3-3 and Stage 5-4. Seems to be fond of doing these.
- Manipulative Bastard: Potentially with Troy. Also with Captain Henry and Obia.
- Mind over Matter: Possibly. He does rise a chunk of rock to chuck at Febo in Stage 3-3.
- No-Nonsense Nemesis: Compared to the previous main villain of the series, Kojar is serious and straight to the point of when he wants something done and doesn't waste time with interactions whenever he confronts the heroes.
- Shock and Awe: He seems to have some control over lightning, such as his Dramatic Entrance in Ostura Town and when he grabbed onto Troy when he tried to make a break for it. He also uses it when he ambushes the heroes in Stage 3-3. Interestingly enough, he also uses the Ruins Wand to do so. Either it's a good conductor or the Ruins Wand can control lightning.
- Yellow Lightning, Blue Lightning: His lightning is depicted as Blue and Green.
- Shockwave Stomp: In Stage 3-3, he displays this, being able to use it to cause the ground to erupt a thorn against Bandana Dee and to emit a normal shockwave to send Kirby into the air.
- Teleport Spam: In true Kirby Boss fashion, he sports the ability to teleport and does it multiple times to avoid direct attacks in Stage 3-3. On top of that, he's also able to teleport others from a distance as shown as early in Stage 1-4, where he teleports Troy in and out of the scene.
The current ruler over the land of Ostura.
- Ambiguously Related: It's unknown if King Upa is Becky and Troy's father, uncle or grandparent, due to Becky calling him by his title only. At best, he's at least their guardian of some sort.
- Eyes Always Shut: Currently has yet to be with his eyes open.
- Prophecies Are Always Right: Is a firm believer of this and judging from Becky's response, he lets it be known.
The Boss of World 1.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: Shows up when the Sand Wand is dropped into his den. Other than that and being the first boss, he shows up for one level and has no dialogue or any real build up unlike the other Bosses.
"Did someone say my name? Cuz I'm a Munchy! Munchy is my name... speed is kind of my game!"
Created by George's friend, Thomas.
- Anti-Villain: Besides turning parts of precious Ostura ruins into his own amusement park, Munchy isn't really evil to begin with. One of the few antagonists not involved with Lord Kojar.
- Breaking the Fourth Wall: Does this in general and explame shown is in STAGE 2-6, where he's seen placing an enemy.
- Reality Warper: Somehow transported the gang to a Smash Battlefield-esque stage.
- Resurrective Immortality: Lampshaded.
Munchy: "I guess I should tell you guys that I'm immortal!
Becky: ? "Wait how? Huh?"
Munchy: "Yeah there's no way to stop me. "Well... maybe with the freeze tape... "But the developer were jerks to you to not allow you to use that!"
- Shout-Out: Of Pacman clearly. With the music that plays when he usually appears down to the moves he uses when he fights Kirby. Also nearly quotes what Sonic's known for in his Brawl trailer word for word. Along with bringing up fighting Smash Bros style onto the table as well as fighting one stage that resembles Final Destination.
The Lost Souls of String Forrest
The Lost Souls of String Forrest
The various souls that are lost within the String Forrest.
- Creepy Good: Even if they're lost souls, they do help out Kirby through the forest.
The Great Jacob
"Oh! Hello there... Vistors, shall I welcome you all with the performance of my song?"
- Ambidextrous Sprite: When his paper sprite is flipped, his patches and teeth also switch positions.
- Anti-Villain: Similar to Munchy, Jacob was never evil. He was lonely and potentially lashing out from it. Similar to Munchy's case, he wasn't connected to Lord Kojar in his dirty work but was confronted by Troy into giving up the Leaf Wand.
- Attention Whore: Was very persistent in wanting to continuously sing when the heroes first encounter him. When the heroes have to leave, he decides to curse them to wonder the forest forever. After his defeat, he explains that they were never cursed in the first place.
- Creepy Doll: Subverted. He's more cute than creepy.
- Enemy Summoner: Is shown to be able to summon what looks like to be a Medusa Head.
- Hates Being Alone: Once the heroes defeat him, he reveals that this is the feelings behind his actions.
- Jerkass Realization: Realizes this when he receives a Armor-Piercing Response from Becky, Febo and Bandana Dee.
- Razor Floss: Implied in Stage 3-4 though, Jacob could've been using a metaphor because he's a puppet like creature. Confirmed, as he's able to throw string like projectiles that can harm others.
- We Need a Distraction: Stalls the heroes for a bit until the pitfall trap to come into effect. However, apparently he didn't know the pitfall was there.
The Kiwi Isles
Pearlei the Mermaid
A mermaid that lives in the Kiwi Isles.
Created by George's friend, learn2chillax.
- All-Powerful Bystander: Justified. Considering that despite how powerful Pearlei is implied to be, if she defeated Captain Henry and Obia on her own, they might've not told her where her people are or worst case scenario, she gets captured and they have the real Tear Wand. Thus, Pearlei played things safe until she saw an opportunity in her favor. Also, during Captain Henry and Obia's Boss Fight, Pearlei uses only enough force to crash land Captain Henry and Obia's boat onto land so the heroes can handle the rest. Granted, Pearlei only appears where there is water so her movement space is limited. Although, it looked like she was going to spray Captain Henry with more water before he revealed why him and Obia did what they did. In Stage 5-1, Pearlei notes that mermaids can't swim in lava or walk on land.
- Apologetic Attacker: Zig-zagged. She apologized to Kirby that Febo was taken but when she learns that she spat water at Becky's face thinking she was a threat, she never quite apologizes for it (despite looking guilty at the time) and stating "I guess I have to say sorry for what I did..." when they become allies. Heck, when she gets a closer look at Becky and remembers, she giggles. Potentially due to remembering how Becky looked in response and found it hilarious.
- Meaningful Name: Pearlei wears pearls in her hair and as apart of her necklace.
- Mysterious Watcher: When the heroes set sail in Stage 4-1, she's seen watching them and then follows them. In Stage 4-5, she resumed watching from a distance before suddenly deciding to help Kirby and the heroes, in return for helping her save her people, ala "scratch my back, I'll scratch yours".
- Our Mermaids Are Different: Has yet to show other abilities but according to Captain Henry, Mermaids are said to be very dangerous. However, the only real dangerous thing that Pearlei did thus far was spit water at Becky's face and seems to not have a lot of mobility on land, only sticking in the water.
- Making a Splash: She can manipulate water, first time seen was her spitting some at Becky. The next time we see her manipulate water is to make a tidal wave towards Captain Henry and Obia. So as it turns out, Captain Henry was correct.
- The Reveal: Reveals that the wand Kirby found earlier was a fake and she had the real one the whole time. In Stage 4-5 is when she decides to give it to Kirby.
Captain Henry and Obia
Captain Henry and Obia
A duo that travel together on their boat.
- Anti-Villain: During Stage 4-6 it's revealed that in order to survive Lord Kojar's onslaught, they begged for their lives and so are now working for Lord Kojar.
- Badass Normal: They managed to survive Lord Kojar's attack and managed to capture most of the mermaids if their power over water, shown by Pearlei is anything to go by.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: While they started off on slightly rocky terms due to the heroes taking his boat at first, Henry and Obia seemed alright in helping the Heroes find the Tear Wand. However, once they do, Obia shoots them with a cannon and the run off with the Tear Wand and Febo. Subverted, as they were doing what they did to survive.
- Book Dumb: In response to why the heroes took their boat, Obia gives the implication that they don't know how to write, possibly let alone read.
- Even Evil Has Standards: While not evil, they only captured Pearlei's people, not killed them. Also, while they did kidnap Febo, they didn't seem to harm him at all during that, aside from the cannonball to the face to knock the heroes out.
- Exact Words: Since Lord Kojar's orders were something along the lines of "he recommended us to get rid of the mermaids" but didn't say how, they only captured the mermaids, not killed them. Plus, why would they completely listen to someone who wiped out their island?
- Freeze-Frame Bonus: When Obia shoots the cannon, she seems to have underestimated how big the recoil was and her face reflects on that. Her face returns during their Boss Fight as well and when she gets hit by Becky's fire.
- Happily Married: In Stage 4-6, it's revealed that they are a married couple and genuinely care for one another.
- Last Of Their Kind: During Stage 4-6, it's revealed that Lord Kojar came to their island and wiped most of them off trying to find the Tear Wand. If Obia and Henry didn't beg for their lives, it's highly likely Lord Kojar would've killed them too.
The Mermaids of Kiwi Isles
- Those Two Guys: Cory and Octa spent a fair chunk of screen time together.
- Smug Smiler: Downplayed. Does this for a second and in his concept art but seems to be a genuinely good person.
- Ambidextrous Sprite: Octa's shirt is slightly cut off on only her right arm in her concept art but in the series her paper sprite flips, showing the cut off on her left arm.
- Big Sister Instinct: It's not clear if they're related but Octa does accompany Pearlei when she leads Kirby and co to the next area, the Ceniza Kingdom, wanting her be safe.
- Meaningful Name: Octa's tail are octopus tentacles, having 8 of them in her concept art.
- Those Two Guys: Cory and Octa spent a fair chunk of screen time together.
- Easter Egg: She's seen in the background for a few seconds.
The Ceniza Kingdom
Citizens of the Ceniza Kingdom
Here are the citzens of the Ceniza Kingdom
- The Bartender: One of them bartends the LA-VAR tavern in town, selling Lava Shakes. As well as giving out information of how to get into the castle.
- Eye Scream: A few citizens seem to suffer from this, with a girl who's lost one of her eyes and a guy who gives the heroes info on how to get into the castle is heavily implied to have lost both of his eyes. However, it doesn't seem to bother either one of them or they've adapted to the change.
The ruler of the Ceniza Kingdom.
"Oh I believe in all of you. You can take him down, after all we all learn from mistakes."
- Cloudcuckoolander: She accidentally threw the Flame Wand into the volcano.Queen Fusie: "Lord Kojar shouldn't be able to get the wand. I threw it into the volcano. Whoops."
- Facial Markings: Has two wavy lines on the side of her face, also counting as Blush Sticker.
- The High Queen: Is the ruler of the Ceniza Kingdom and worked her way to obtain that title.
- Mentor Archetype: Is this to the heroes, teaching them that mistakes will happen and that you grow from them as well as training Becky.
- Messy Hair: Her hair seems to be a poofy state along with red marks on it. She has her hands in them in her default paper sprite, enough to the point where they leave holes if she removes her hands from her hair.
- Meaningful Name: Fusie, is played off of the word "Fuse" which means using heat to combine, blend or melt things together. Also Fusie, is monaghan slang for sweat treats or biscuit treats.
- Oh, Crap!: Downplayed. When Queen Fusie learns that Kojar may have 3-4 wands, she reacts pretty direct yet calmly about it after the fact.Queen Fusie: "Oh, we are kind of screwed."
- Plucky Girl: Even when things aren't in the heroes favor, Queen Fusie refuses to give up and leans her help to the heroes.
- Technicolor Fire: Her fire is implied to be black, as she shown she teleports.
- Teleportation: Can teleport certain distances leaving black fire behind.
- Taking the Bullet: It's hard to see because it happens so fast, if you slow it down, you'll notice that Queen Fusie pushed herself in front of Becky to take most of the surprise blast Kojar sent her way.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Enjoys eating Rock Chocolate Cake.
