The Air Ride Kirbies

    White Kirby 
The generic protagonist of The Air Ride Series, and one of the main four Air Ride kirbies.
  • Absentee Actor: White Kirby had a track record for appearing in every comic, even if he was shoehorned in. However, in Comic 131, he is completely absent, ending his streak.
  • Alternate Self: White Kirby has two:
    • In a story that was never made, the characters would go to a universe where the characters were replaced with Poyo Ride's original ideas for the characters. In this universe, White Kirby acted the same, but was now Brown Kirby and colored Brown. The White Kirby in that universe was instead a scientist.
    • In another story, the characters go through different dimensions where various things are different in each dimension. In the second dimension, White Kirby and Blue Kirby switch places.
  • The Artifact: White Kirby was the main character in 2014 and 2015, and as the series took a very sharp turn in 2016, he stayed around, as he was technically the main character.
  • Author Avatar: While Throw Kirby was used as Poyo's author avatar, in Comic 149, which is based on a real conversation, Poyo Ride's words in that conversation are said by White Kirby.
    • Also worth noting are some of the earliest edits on Poyo Ride's The Air Ride Group Wiki userpage, all told from White Kirby's point of view.
  • Black Bead Eyes
  • Featureless Protagonist: Doesn't have any personality traits other than hating Blue Kirby.
  • Jerkass Ball: Whenever Blue Kirby takes his piece, otherwise he's a generic guy.
  • Protagonist Without a Past: White Kirby is never given any backstory aside from Air Ride Preschool, which doesn't really give anyone aside from Mrs. AMP a backstory, and Blue Kirby's backstory, where he appears and meets Blue Kirby, which has been confirmed to be non canon by Poyo Ride, therefore giving White Kirby no backstory.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: One of the seven during 2016.


    Blue Kirby
2016 artwork
White Kirby's main rival. He is usually taking White Kirby's legendary star pieces, causing a rivalry between the two.
  • Alternate Self:
    • In a story, the characters go through different dimensions where various things are different in each dimension. In the second dimension, White Kirby and Blue Kirby switch places.
  • Arch-Enemy: To White Kirby.
  • The Artifact: Blue Kirby still appeared in 2016, as he was a classic villain and one of the main characters, and removing him wouldn't feel right.
  • Big Bad: Definitely during 2014. He was the one who caused TARS to become a thing. As the years go on though, he starts to become less of an antagonist.
  • Black Bead Eyes
  • Butt-Monkey: In certain comics.
  • Designated Villain: The hatred for Blue Kirby is, for the most part, exaggerated. He does not steal the pieces, despite what White Kirby claims, he simply finds them in the red boxes, where they are supposed to be. White Kirby treats the pieces like they're his own, and in reality, White Kirby is the bigger piece taker.
  • Karmic Thief: White Kirby's actions towards how he treats the pieces, treating them as his own, make Blue Kirby one of these.
  • Legacy Character: He certainly didn't become the only piece taking Blue Kirby. He got into Green Kirby Air Ride, with a few changes, was brought into both Air Ride Adventures series', and is going to be the same in the TARS reboot.
  • Leitmotif: Due to being a comic, the series has no music, but Word of God claims Fossils from "Carnival of the Animals" is Blue Kirby's official theme song.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: One of the seven during 2016.
  • Villain Decay: In the 2016 comics, you can't even tell Blue Kirby is a villain anymore.

    Yellow Kirby
Blue Kirby's partner in crime and one of the main four kirbies.
  • Black Bead Eyes
  • Foreshadowing: His wiki page claims if Kirby Air Ride 2 ever becomes a thing, and White Kirby/Chalk Kirby are excluded from the roster, White & Yellow Kirby would switch colors, mostly because of Yellow Kirby being the most common Kirby Palette Swap in spin-off games. The only reason White Kirby remains white is because he's always been white. Guess who ascended to the main character status when Air Ride Adventures replaced TARS?
  • Satellite Character: Seems to only exist to be Blue Kirby's partner in crime.

    Red Kirby
White Kirby's best friend. Yeah that's pretty much it.
  • The Artifact: Red Kirby was almost dropped in the series, but was one of the main four kirbies, so Green Kirby was trashed instead.
  • Black Bead Eyes
  • Mythology Gag: His guard animation in SMSB's M.U.G.E.N. port uses a very similar shield that he used in Comic 84. The only difference is that the outline has been changed to white from grey.
  • Satellite Character: Without White Kirby, he would basically be a Kirby with nothing special about him.
  • Sidekick: As White Kirby's best friend, he is also his sidekick.

     Green Kirby
The first of the minor four kirbies. Green's a very competitive Kirby, but doesn't get to see this trait used very often due to the comics using the minor four kirbies extremely rarely.

     Purple Kirby
An air rider who strives to be the best. However, since this is The Air Ride Series, this personality was forgotten about after two days, and he basically just became a filler slot for the minor four kirbies. Very late into the series's lifespan, Purple Kirby was taken out of the series and replaced with a newer Purple Kirby, with a more unique and used personality.
  • Back for the Finale: Appears in Comic 200.
  • Black Bead Eyes
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Eventually revoked because it was explained where he went.
  • Creator's Pest: Poyo Ride started to dislike Purple Kirby due to his personality never being expanded on due to Poyo Ride's lack of interest and how he was an outdated character. He was eventually trashed near the end of the series.
  • Put on a Bus: Name a 2016 comic where Purple Kirby shows up besides Comic 200. The bus later crashed in late October.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Remember how Purple Kirby idolized his parents and wanted to be just like them? Yeah me neither.

     Brown Kirby
Brown Kirby, the third of the minor four Kirbies. Brown Kirby is an evil kirby, always causing destruction in Crappy Town. Not really that evil because everyone likes to destroy Crappy Town.

     Pink Kirby
Pink Kirby
Yellow Kirby's four year old sister. She is often bratty and is very picky with her stars.

Recurring Characters

— Comic 1: Dyna Blade and the Beach
A giant bird who is always yelling about everything.
  • Abusive Parent: She eats her own chicks.
  • Anti-Role Model: Oh boy where do we start?
  • Book Dumb: Dyna Blade is not the dumbest character in the series, but it is shown in Comic 95 she cannot solve basic addition.
  • Caps Lock: A character who screams almost all of her lines.
  • Catchphrase: Dyna Blade's common line "SQUWAK", used in various sentences. It is misspelled throughout the comic's entire run.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: What goes through this bird's head?
  • Creator's Pet: Dyna Blade was one of Poyo's favorite characters during TARS's run, and became his favorite after TARS ended. Basically everyone else who knew about this series hated this character. Read The Scrappy below.

  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Dyna Blade hates everything.
  • Idiot Ball: Comic 95.
  • Large Ham: She screams 99% of her lines.
  • Lone Wolf Boss: In Stupidstar Saga, Dyna Blade has no connection to Miss Robot, the game's Big Bad.
  • No Indoor Voice: Dyna Blade is constantly screaming.
  • The Scrappy: One of TARS's only fans confirmed he disliked Dyna Blade, Fantendo did not like the character, and someone on the Joke Battles wiki hated the portrayal of this character. It also doesn't help that Dyna Blade is the creator's favorite character.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: One of the seven during 2016.
  • Verbal Tic: "SQUWAK!"

     Shadow Star 
"You can't find me!"
— His Catchphrase.
A star who is hiding from the kirbies, because he's too sexy for the kirbies to drive. Usually on top of a Flying Saucer that's referred to as the UFO.

     Orange Kirby
This Kirby did not make the cut for Kirby Air Ride, and always whines about it.

     Stadium Prediction 
The host of City Trial. He always predicts the stadiums and events, usually lying.
  • Blatant Lies: A good majority of his predictions.
  • Catchphrase: STADIUM PREEEEEEEDICTION! He says it in the beginning of all of his sentences.
  • Incoming Ham: Whenever he says STADIUM PREDICTION!
  • Large Ham:
  • Unseen Character: The most we know about him is that he's a kirby, thanks to Word of God.
  • Up to Eleven: In Kirby Air Ride, the Stadium Prediction's predictions can sometimes be incorrect, though there's no way of knowing until the event. In TARS, his predictions are extremely farfetched.

While initially introduced in 2014, he was given a massive overhaul in 2016 and is one of the only characters, if not the only character, to go from a minor character to one of the main characters.
  • Alternative Character Interpretation: His wiki page was edited, saying he could either be a jerk or a friend. This was quickly taken down by Poyo Ride.
  • Anti-Role Model: Kirby misbehaves in class, and often causes trouble for the entire school.
  • Black Bead Eyes
  • The Bus Came Back: Comic 123 reintroduced Kirby into the series, with some heavy flanderization
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Appeared in comic 30, then vanished without a trace. In 2016, with Comic 123, one of the first comics of the year, Kirby made his grand return, and this trope has been revoked.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Kirby is one of the dumbest characters in the series.
  • Foil:
    • To Mrs. AMP. See AMP's folder.
    • Also a foil to Nurby. Kirby is wild and stupid, often teaming up with Miss Robot to cause trouble. Nurby is well behaved, and likes to spend his time reading books.
  • Flanderization: His original personality revolved around him saving the world. Then a line of text was added saying "Kirby is rather childish, and commonly gets in trouble at school." in late 2015/early 2016, before it was changed again to remove the saving the world info, making him a school troublemaker.
  • Idiot Ball: The most common Idiot Ball in the series.
  • Lethal Klutz: Alongside Miss Robot, his dumb actions do not end well for people around him.
  • Put on a Bus: Ever since he was introduced in June 2014, he has been put on a bus, with a minor appearance in one comic. After Comic 123, he got off the bus and became a main character.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Mrs. AMP and Nurby's blue.
  • School Is for Losers: Kirby's entire personality revolves around this trope.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: One of the seven during 2016.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: Kirby's flanderization in early 2016 caused him to become one of the most idiotic characters in the series.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: 2014/15 Kirby was a kind hearted kirby who saved the world, very similar to his game portrayal. Come 2016 and Kirby transforms into an idiotic jerk who thinks School Is for Losers.
  • Unexpected Character: Comic 30 introduces Kirby, who disappears after that comic. In Comic 113, he reappears, before becoming the focus of Comic 123, and then becoming a main character.

    Mrs. AMP
Fully known as Mrs. Anger Management Problems, she was a character introduced in 2015. She is one of the science teachers at Ride School/Crappy Town Academy. She used to get angry at the smallest of things, but was later transformed into that generic mean teacher, who usually tried to stop Kirby & Miss Robot's crazy antics.
  • Adults Are Useless: Mrs. AMP often fails to stop Kirby & Miss Robot.
  • Artifact Title: In 2016, all she really does is get mad at Kirby, which is justifiable, as basically every teacher in existence besides Mrs. Bairis would.
  • Berserk Button: Mrs. AMP in her earlier days, where she would get mad at the most minor offenses, such as skipping school on Labor Day.
  • Continuity Nod: In Stupidstar Saga, her Battle Gauntlet counterpart's alternate color scheme is Mrs. AMP's original coloration from Comic 77. Her hair color is also a lighter brown, like how it was in Comic 77.
  • Foil: To Kirby and Miss Robot. Kirby is annoying, loud, and incorrigible, always causing trouble in the school, and Miss Robot is very similar. The two work like a duo to misbehave in the school. Mrs. AMP is the one who tries to keep them in check, being a stern teacher who always tries to get Kirby to behave.
  • Flanderization: Back then Mrs. AMP got mad at everyone for skipping class on Labor Day or something like that. Now she's only here to ruin Kirby's fun.
  • Giant Space Flea from Nowhere: In White & Red Kirby: Stupidstar Saga, Mrs. AMP appears as the penultimate boss of the fake game. Like Dark Kirby, her boss fight comes out of nowhere, and Mrs. AMP has had no prior appearances.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Apart from that one time she wore yellow in her debut.
  • Meaningful Name: Unintentionally, her name has a second meaning. The base unit for electric currents in the International System of Units is known as the ampere, which usually gets shortened to amp. Mrs. AMP accidentally got a science based name and a name that described her (former) personality at the same time.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Who wants to be taught by someone who's last name is "Anger Management Problems?"
  • Overly Long Name: To the point where it's usually shortened.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Kirby's red.
  • Only Sane Man: Mrs. AMP seems to be the only character in the series who actually is sane. This stands out more as the characters she is seen with most are Kirby and Miss Robot.
  • Palette Swap: Mrs. Loudness and The Preschool Teacher. Mrs. AMP, unlike these two, has brown hair instead of black hair.
  • Sadist Teacher: She was one particularly in her early days, although her students were very bad. It's said that she will get you expelled if you get one problem wrong on a pretest.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: One of the seven during 2016. Started to become one as early as 2015.
  • Workaholic: In one of the spiral comics, Mrs. AMP gets mad at the kids for skipping Labor Day, implying she's one of these.
  • What Could Have Been: Originally, she was planned to wear yellow instead of orange. The yellow body managed to get into Comic 77. Due to her artwork being in black and white, Poyo Ride likely forgot yellow was her shirt color, and assumed it was orange.

    Miss Robot 
"Okay kids, today Imma show you how to drink lava."
— Comic 140: Science Club
A robot built to teach all the kids who debuted in late 2015, and became one of the main characters in 2016. She is always getting hacked, to the point where she starts to hack herself.
  • Ai Getting High: In one comic, Miss Robot's drug stash is discovered, and several other things confirm Miss Robot regularly does drugs.
  • Alternate Self: Miss Robot has 23 clones that look identical except with a different color. They have one minor trait that makes them different.
  • Anti-Role Model: Miss Robot is seen burning down the school in various comics.
  • Big Bad: In White & Red Kirby: Stupidstar Saga, Miss Robot creates the virus that infects Crappy Town. Despite this, she is not the final boss or related to the final boss in any way.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Miss Robot's actions are often bizarre. However, this is usually due to her getting hacked by the kids.
  • Creator's Pet: Miss Robot was Poyo Ride's favorite character during 2016, so it's no surprise she appeared a lot in 2016 while various other characters, such as Purple Kirby, the All Patch, and Lucario Sinnoh became nonexistent.
  • Fish Eyes: 70% of the time.
  • Foil: To Mrs. AMP. See AMP's folder.
  • Flanderization: Miss Robot used to be destroyed by the kids, and occasionally hacked, then all she did was get hacked.
  • Funny Robot: Whenever Miss Robot appears on screen, she is usually doing something stupid to make the audience laugh.
  • Giftedly Bad: In Comic 199, Miss Robot claims her piece of art, the "White Wonder", will have you staring at it all day. The white wonder is a blank piece of paper.
  • Idiot Ball: Kiddies usually hack her to cause problems, so she causes the plot of some comics.
  • Idiot Programming: In-Universe. Despite being built to teach the kids, Miss Robot was easily able to get hacked by the kids, and the school never bothered to fix this.
  • Lethal Klutz: Alongside Kirby, her dumb actions do not end well for people around her.
  • Leitmotif: Miss Robot's theme song is officially Metal Crusher.
  • One-Wheeled Wonder
  • Palette Swap: Her 23 clones, with the exception of Miss Robot 14.0., Miss Robot 15.0., Miss Robot 23.0. and Miss Robot 24.0. all look identical to Miss Robot, except being a different color.
  • Please Subscribe to Our Channel: Read the quote above from her twitter. She also shows up in Comic 186, to tell the viewer to leave a comment and donate to her obviously fake website.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: One of the seven during 2016.
  • Terrible Artist: In Comic 199, Miss Robot enters into an art contest by entering a blank piece of paper. Mrs. AMP calls her out for this and Miss Robot is disqualified.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Her favorite drink, water, causes her to explode.
  • Troll: Miss Robot does this a lot, such as adding 50 more buttons alongside the button Kirby wanted her to add onto her invention.
  • Unexpected Character: Miss Robot first appears in Comic 96. As most of the teachers aside from Mrs. AMP don't usually appear in comics, Miss Robot should have been relegated to only that one appearance and a wiki page, but Poyo Ride loved the character, and she appeared more and more often.

An evil Pokemon, who was one of the first major non air ride characters, and the main villain of various stories.

A giant flying dragon always whining about being excluded for Super Smash Bros. 4.
  • Berserk Button: NEVER call him too big for Smash Bros.
  • Blatant Lies: Poyo Ride said Ridley would be appearing less after Comic 30, because of Ridley making appearances in almost every comic. He appears in Comic 33 for no reason, and only says "I'M BACK." After this though, Poyo Ride showed he really was serious about Ridley not coming back, as Ridley made very few appearances afterwards.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: While during Comics 21-30, Ridley was appearing in almost every comic, after this, he slowly started to fade away.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Ridley wants to kill Sakurai for not putting him in Smash 4.
  • Green-Eyed Monster:
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: After whining the entire series about not being in Super Smash Bros., it has been confirmed he will be appearing in the newest Smash game.

  • Funny Robot: They're not as dangerous and creepy as they are in the games, and are usually just there for comic relief, when they do appear.
  • Killer Robot: During night, just like their game counterparts.
  • Off-Model: Due to some comics and unfinished comic adaptations of stories being made before the "THANK YOU!" F Na F image was released, there was no official full body image for most of the animatronics. Therefore, Poyo Ride decided to draw their bodies himself in the comics. Let's just say they don't look very good.

The Puppet

The Puppet appears in the prize corner. He hates his job, and doesn't like to be interrupted.

  • Catchphrase: OH YES!
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Averted, Mettaton has never been shown to have any morals or care about people around him.
  • Evil Laugh: Not really a laugh, but "OH YES".
  • Final Battle: The comic where the kirbies fight Mettaton EX is the second to last comic in the series timeline, and in the last one, no battle occurs, so the battle in that comic is technically the final battle of TARS.
  • Foreshadowing: Dyna Blade flips Mettaton's switch in Comic 147, though Mettaton EX cannot be seen, as the panel graphics are replaced by Mettaton's LCD's showing a penis.

  • Villain Episode: Mettaton's comics usually have him be one of the only characters, with other characters making minor appearances. Exceptions are Comic 141, 147, 177, 185, and 200.
  • Walking Spoiler: Comic 157 shows off Mettaton EX before that form properly appears in the series.

     Yellow Devil
A very annoying member of Wily's robots. His ball pattern attack makes him undefeatable.
  • Back for the Finale: Appears in Comic 200. If bonus comics aren't counted, he's the last character to appear in the series.
  • Boss Battle: When SMSB was a fake game on the wiki, the Yellow Devil was slated to be one of the game's stage bosses, similar to how he was one in Smash 4.
  • Promoted to Playable: However, in the M.U.G.E.N. adaptation of SMSB, he's been confirmed to be a playable newcomer.
  • Retcon: Being in SMSB's third roster in an expansion pack doesn't make you a newcomer.
  • Your Size May Vary: The size of Mega Man in SMSB.

  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: She was basically replaced by Mrs. AMP.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: How does she not know what really goes on in her class?

  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: He filled the world with terrorists, sex, and Hydra pieces.
  • God:
  • Retcon: Comic 79, his backstory comic, was completely retconned as bogus mythology made by Dyna Blade in Comic 203.
  • The Reveal: With the reveal that TARS is a simulation created by Dyna Blade, Comic 79 is completely retconned and Arceus's actual backstory is revealed. Dyna Blade said she made completely BOGUS mythology, and a picture of Arceus taken from Comic 79 appears as she said that. That indirectly confirms Arceus is NOT the TARS god, and is a God Guise.
  • What Could Have Been: His reveal was originally that he was actually Dyna Blade the entire time, but this was scrapped.

Poyo Ride's signature Pokémon, a Rayquaza with a very high ego.
  • Adaptational Wimp: You probably would be less intimidated if you saw this Rayquaza instead of a Rayquaza from the games. Comic 115 shows that he is not in control of the Weather Trio anymore, as Kyogre kicks him out.
  • Irony: According to Poyo Ride, the nature of the Rayquaza that inspired this Rayquaza to be a character was an "Impish" nature. note  An impish nature would probably be one of the most fitting for this Rayquaza. Poyo Ride says that Rayquaza's personality in TARS was not based on his nature in the games.
