Non Smahs Bio[edit]

I don't know a lot about Kirby's non-smash bio, so could someone please help me into making this longer. Thanks. Johnknight1 12:47, October 25, 2007 (EDT)

That pretty much counts as incentive for me to create the whole Character description section for the page... I think I'll start work. Could you do all the game sections and images to make it like Mario? Erik, Lord of Universes 03:50, October 25, 2007 (EDT)

Huh!?[edit]

Um...Why in the box is the gender female, when it says HE was created by so-and-so? 75.181.38.89

Recent Art[edit]

I'm confused about this now. This game was released after Brawl and is the most recent, but OT got rid of Link's most recent art. Explanation please?--MegaTron1XD:p 15:40, July 14, 2010 (UTC)

I think Megatron1 might have a point...[edit]

Maybe we should only have artwork of a character from a game released most recently before Brawl. What do you all think? BNK [E|T|C] 20:36, July 16, 2010 (UTC)

Not at all. Part of what Smash is important to SmashBros is the history of the games. The trophies make this clear with showing different art from different games/eras. We should include relevant images of the characters from all games and eras to show the development of the characters, especially those for whom it is unclear exactly which game their costume(s) are based off.

I agree that art should be updated (at least the one at the top of the page), as the articles are primarily about the characters as they are from outside Smash Bros. Toomai Glittershine Toomai.png eXemplary Logic 21:14, July 16, 2010 (UTC)

Species[edit]

For some reason, the Swedish SSBM manual says that he is a bat. This is awfully wrong, isn't it? – SmiddleT 04:38, 3 January 2011 (EST)

While it is wrong, there may be a partial explanation. In Kirby's Dreamland 3, there are Kirby-shaped enemies called Batamon. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Bold 09:49, 3 January 2011 (EST)
Batamon? Sounds like a Digimon. This isn't notable enough trivia, is it? ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 11:59, 3 January 2011 (EST)
I understand why you would assume such a thing. Not notable imo.MegaTron1XD:p 17:52, 3 January 2011 (EST)
A bat?! That's simply strange. I could see why they made that mistake, though. Meta Knight is supposed to be a Kirby, but his midair jump animation resembles a bat. BrawlingbrianFalcoHeadSSBU.png LANDMASTER! 19:30, 3 January 2011 (EST)
Strangely enough, this was Melee, so no Meta Knight. – SmiddleT 19:53, 3 January 2011 (EST)

Fighting Game[edit]

Hi! I notice that Mario, Mega Man, Pac-Man Link, Snake, Little Mac, and DK mention on their page that they appeared in a fighting game other that smash bros. Well, Kirby Triple Deluxe has a Fighting Game built in. That can not be argued. You can't say that Kirby Fighters is Super Smash Bros and tell the truth. So you should REALLY mention this on Kirby's file as well. :) 72.105.72.143 10:39, 30 June 2014 (EDT)

Kirby Fighters is a sub-game, so I'm not sure that it counts. However, you do have a point. I think this is worth discussing. FirstaLasto 11:51, 30 June 2014 (EDT)
This trivia point on articles should just be wiped altogether. There are so many characters it applies to at this point, it's nothing really notable anymore. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 12:21, 30 June 2014 (EDT)
I agree. It has become really long and pointless now. ChuckNorris24.png 12:25, 30 June 2014 (EDT)
Agreed. Especially if more Smash fighters appear in other fighting games in the future, it'll be too tedious to have to add to every page with that point. Berrenta (talk) 12:50, 30 June 2014 (EDT)

Hmm...[edit]

Is it okay if I add his Planet Robobot artwork image to the infobox? Juju1995 (talk) 01:12, 15 May 2016 (EDT)

To what end? His Triple Deluxe design is basically identical. Miles (talk) 01:29, 15 May 2016 (EDT)

Smash 4 Dark Blue Kirby[edit]

The dark blue color swap looks exactly like Meta Knight without the mask. In Kirby: Planet Robobot, Meta Knight (as Mecha Knight) can be seen without the mask before quickly leaving when you defeat him. Valehd 10:45, 13 June 2016 (EDT)

I couldn't see his face very clearly when I beat him, but A. Mecha Knight was clearly a pretty different shade of blue than the costume and B. we probably wouldn't need to mention this anyway, since Planet Robobot came out after Smash 4.

Trivia Confusion[edit]

Ok, so I know Banjo appeared in Diddy Kong Racing, and Sonic appeared in some racing game as an air freshener or something, but what game did Kirby appearing before Kirby's Dream Land (1992). He appeared as a cursor in Earthbound's debug menu, but that was in 1994.
