Fan Fic / Kirby Vs Shy Guy

Go To

Kirby Vs Shy Guy is a comedic Sprite Comic starring Yoshi and Kirby. It all starts with them getting attacked by General Guy, which eventually leads to a Mario & Luigi styled fight against a Bandit, and... well, it's better to read it yourself.

The comic doesn't have a domain, so it could be found here.

Tropes that appear:

  • Action Commands: The "Bros Moves" are explained to use action commands, and though Yoshi argues that "there is no B Button", he's somehow able to "press" it anyway.
  • Advertisement:
  • Bamboo Technology: Cameras. Made of watermelons.
  • Big Boo's Haunt: An early story arc takes place in a haunted house which Kirby and Yoshi built.
  • Butt-Monkey: BG Bandit gets the target of most attacks, the center of a Running Gag involving Goonies falling on his head, and even is attacked by his loyal pet.
    • In a way, Dry Bones. Everyone sees him as a nuisance, though Kirby's team starts to regret him not being there during the Reminox battle.
  • Combination Attack: The Bros Moves.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Yoshi and BG Bandit.
  • Determinator: The Shy Guys spend the majority of the strip searching for Kirby.
  • Eldritch Abomination: The Reminox.
  • Enemy Mine: BG Bandit has to stick with Kirby and Yoshi due to his current situation.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Moore was only meant to appear in two strips. He then got so much attention he became a main character.
    • Agent 00X/James Kong gets a good amount of fans too.
    • Caesar, the team's pet spiny is one as well.
  • Expy: Team Missile is Team Rocket.
  • Harmless Villain: General Guy is this after the fight with the Shy Guy miasma.
  • Jerkass: BG Bandit always tries to find a way to backstab Kirby and Yoshi.
    • Yoshi was one in the 'quest for ice cream' story arc.

  • Massive Multiplayer Crossover: The series has characters from Yoshi's Island, Kirby, and Paper Mario, with elements from Mario & Luigi, Metroid, Pokémon, The Legend of Zelda, Mine Craft and even Puella Magi Madoka Magica.
  • Meaningful Name: BG literally means Back Ground. Which is BG's ability. Hiding in, or attacking with, the back ground.
  • Orphaned Series: Hasn't updated since 2016, with no word from Peardian about it's status.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Don't mess with the Shy Guys.
  • Running Gag:
    • You forgot your box.
    • King Longspear, woohaha!
  • Shout-Out: The battles throughout the comic are themed around Paper Mario, Mario & Luigi, and Pokémon..
    • The Shy Guys find treasures and carry them a la Pikmin. Theyre then attacked by a Bulborb.
    • When Kirby, Yoshi, and BG Bandit come across a portal, Kirby jumps in assuming there's cake on the other side, only to find the cake is a lie.
    • One of Kirby's ideas to use against the Reminox is one to Disgaea.

    • The event with the swarm of "Affuns" is a shout out to the first episode of Pokémon.
    • "Team Missile" is obviously and Expy of Team Rocket, complete with a Gold Fuzzy to replace Meowth.
    • There is a Dragon Ball Z-style recap during the Reminox battle.
    • Goldpincer describes his plan in the style of this song.
  • Trojan Horse: Kirby suggests this to appease and attack the Shy Guys, but General Guy overhears him. Somehow.
  • Turns Red: Reminox turns red twice, becoming Super Reminox and later Hyper Reminox.
  • The Worf Barrage: General Guy's attacks against Phazon Kirby.

How well does it match the trope?
