Game Theory: Kirby…Dream Land’s Biggest THREAT! pt 1

Reader Comments

  1. A few thoughts…

    Kirby as a child: In Dream Land 1, it's established via the manual that he's "a little boy." Sure. I get that. But it doesn't change the fact that he's still a threat to Dream Land. For him to be SO powerful and SO naive is a dangerous combination. Notice in the script I never call him evil. I don't think he has ill-intent. Just because I say he's a villain doesn't mean that he's evil or has bad intentions. I mean it as he's a THREAT. That said, I've changed the title to avoid confusion.

    Regarding Dyna Blade: Him helping the children after the scene I showed doesn't change the point — he beat up someone BEFORE learning the whole story, like I tried to make clear in the script. Seeing that scene, he beats up the mom, THEN sees the kids, gives the screen a "cha-ching" gesture and steals them away, feeds them and teaches them to fly…stuff the MOTHER should be doing but can't because she was injured. I get it: Dyna "forgives" him in Revenge of Meta Knight…the same way Landia does in Return to Dream Land, but I see that more as plot convenience because Kirby is the "good guy," or them realizing they have to fight the "true" evil. But think about Kirby;s ACTIONS…if someone just came up to you and started beating you up for no apparent cause, would YOU forgive the person? See them as a hero? Probably not. And don't forget that EVERYONE he fights along the way is in NO WAY connected to the battle between him and Dyna…they're innocents caught in the middle.

    Kirby's Avalanche: In both Epic Yarn and the original Kirby's Dream Land manual (those are the ones I can think of offhand, but there might be more), Kirby actually speaks English…or something that translates to English, so I think comments throwing these lines out as invalid might be premature. Yes, the game is non-canon, which I acknowledge, but the idea that Kirby ONLY speaks "poyo" isn't necessarily true…or it can be assumed that ALL of Avalanche's lines are translated poyo.

    And yes, I know Avalanche is a version of puyo puyo…it was a joke. Obviously it's not a Candy Crush mod since, if nothing else, Candy Crush came DECADES later.

    Kirby as a God of Destruction: That's in part 2 🙂

    I think that's all the major concerns I'm seeing in the comments. Like I said, I don't think he's intentionally villainous. He's a neutral agent of chaos who gets pointed in a direction and just GOES. But when you look at his actions in the games I call out, a lot of times he's doing more harm than good. Does he do good? Absolutely. But he's still a threat.

  2. I just want to mention Kirby canonically has no gender. The only time Kirby is called anything is in a not entirely accurate translation of a Japanese manual. The actual manual in Japanese, doesn't actually call Kirby a "little boy." Kirby is referred to as a baby, but no canon gender. I'm mentioning this because while I do want to be accurate, it's also really cool to me personally because I'm nonbinary. Kirby might be a little alien baby, but it's nice to have a famous character that isn't a boy or a girl.
    (plus, it's weird to shove an alien into a human gender binary anyway)

  3. Kirby is a literal baby, they might be powerful enough to destroy everything, but you can't criticise their problem solving skills or ability to discern good from evil because they're a literal baby. Kirby literally does not understand anything going on. Kirby just wants what makes Kirby happy, like most young children. 😂

  4. In my opinion you were wrong about 2 things to kirby. 1st: Kirby's adventure, Kirby did not know that a starball of a living nightmare was to be Created and DESTROY the universe, King DeDeDe also stole all the food in dreamland, so kirby thought it was the same threat as last time.
    2nd: Magalore tricked kirby into thinking Landia caused all the chaos, when in reality he even tried to fight Landia himself and failed causing all his parts to scatter across Dreamland, not trying to break the theory, just correcting there, and this is my opinion, all of your theories always make sense and i love that, i'm not trying to break the theory just saying my opinion, But no one cares of my opinion so why did i waste my time writing this? Oh i wanted to.

  5. I think he destroys because people tell him to do it, because he doesn't think for himself, since he's an ameoba

  6. Kirby is is not evil he seems that way in the games but he does not do that in reality you the gamer eat waddle dees. but anyway if it was not for Kirby not defeating nightmare after letting him free the world would still be with out dreams. And plus if it was not for Kirby making the problem escalate he would not have fixed it thoroughly and also your making Kirby look bad buy using Uncanon games. if it weren’t for Kirby taking care of dinoblades eggs after dinoblades crazy moment he would not have helped him fight metaknight which by the way metaknight tried too take over dream land cause everyone was too lazy and layedback and you would think metaknights crew is dead but they all got of the Halebird as it crashed. What I’m trying too say is you got feed by wrong information.

  7. Plot twist: Us gamers are the true gods of destruction… As we controlled Kirby the whole time.

  8. Anybody watch that 30 minute Kirby lore video by rpgmonger talking about how Kirby is a descendant of dark nebula and other evil creatures because I think matpat did

  9. This makes me love Kirby even more! MatPat is basically saying Kirby is Beerus in pink fluffball form, I love it!

  10. He’s probably naive if you think of it you said he was a singular cell so he isn’t that intelligent most of time what he wants is life not to die and he doesn’t fight his 4 enemy’s is because like what I said he’s naive so he doesn’t know there evil but once he’s thrown at them he attacks because it’s defense

  11. Geez…I will never think Kirby a cute puffball again..

    Seriously,Kirby is a serial killer who doesn't even care when he slices someone in half when they were trying to help 🙄

  12. The legend of zelda has naked fairy's that's why there bright in the more later games the more early games have it mostly blurred in the gba or d as I remember.

  13. If you are hungering for truth then you are not making theories, you are actually uncovering satanic symbolism, and quite well actually

  14. at this point your theories HURT to know they exist, even though there are tons of people who counter and kill your theories, i used to like most of your theories then most of them showed themselves to be stupid as hell

  15. Me: Sees that Matpat has accused my favorite video game character of being evil Hold my non-alcoholic beverage.

  16. No kurby is a evil machine and nothing else kurby mast be destroyed #Kill-Kurby the Planet Killer and Frend murderer.

  17. The theory seems true 'but what about the crystal shards?' Ribbon's planet was in danger but Kirby didn't even know what was going on at all, he probably saved it by accident. As for return to dreamland , As you described , Magolor did crash onto pop star and asked for help. Magolor also mentioned 'Let's always stay friends Kirby!' But of course , that was a lie. Most of the things Magolor mentioned are lies. Milky Way wishes, The planets didn't get revived (Idk if they did.) he did fight Marx , but it was probably because Marx betrayed him. And in the true arena , Marx comes back , but has absorbed some of the nova's power. Idk about anything else but I think this theory is true!

  18. I might be a little late, but what if Kirby is as young as they look? Sure, they don't ask questions and just hurts everyone in its path, but you should also know that kids who don't know better tend to follow older beings without question.

    It should also be known that things can be viewed differently by someone's perspective. It's just like some other villains in movies/shows/games. Like Syndrome from The Incredibles, he just wanted to be a hero even without powers, and the 'hero' he looked up to crushed his dream. Princess Luna from My Little Pony just wanted her subjects to love and appreciate her night as much as her older sister's day. And finally, Asgore from Undertale just wanted to break the barrier and let his subjects go out and explore the outside world, by any means necessary.

  19. Daroach was the one who opened thinking there was treasure. Also you never mention how long dedede stole all the food in Dreamland

  20. Wait but isn't more than half just a mistake.

    Also are spin offs canon just wondering. Not that literally there are half of the entire franchise. Just saying.

  21. I like how everyone here took the time to watch the video and then start hating on it when they can just not watch it if they disagree

  22. Let's not froget that Shawdow Kirby is Good. From the amazing mirror, Everyone from the Mirror is a more evil version, See Dark Meta Knight. Shawdow Kirby isn't so he's pure. Regarding Magalor all of the gang helped. In super star Nova is destroyed, but there are more Nova's, It's less of Kirby but Marx taking advantage of. Squeak Squad he suspended Dedede because he stole ALL the food earlier. In the "Kirby needing someone to make him" isn't true" Dedede launched him to help him, not force him. Landia also helps him. Kirby also fixes all of his mistakes. Meta Knight has more Violent methods of doing things. Meta Knight's Crew comes later. Waddle Dee in Kirby's Avalanche it's just playing a game no harm. Also noncanon. In Dreamland 3 all this killing isn't canon the player's choice not Kirby's. Dyna Blade is causing havoc. Gourmet Race is just a race, a competition. Kirby isn't from a line were'd you get that?
