Since there’s not a thread for the Kirby games yet, I’ve decided to make one.

First point of discussion: How did Return to Dream Land get E10+ despite not being much more violent or creepier than your standard Kirby game, yet Triple Deluxe only got E despite the fact that Dark Meta Knight is the first boss in a Kirby game to actually bleed since freaking Zero and 02?

My guess is that the ESRB didn’t get that far. Gotta love the deception of kirby game. Though Sectonia hold the place as my favorite kirby villain

Heck, the original releases of Dream Land 3 and Kirby 64 were rated E despite the aforementioned final bosses (probably because the E10+ rating didn’t exist yet), but those final bosses are likely the sole reason that "Kirby’s Dream Collection" got rated E10+.

Also, yeah, Sectonia’s pretty cool. You know who they should bring back, though, and not just in subgames like they did with every major villain of the series in Kirby Mass Attack? Nightmare. He was the first instance of freaky final bosses in Kirby, and still one of the greatest.

Also, apparently Dark Matter and Zero are basically the overarching villains of the entire franchise. In the Japanese version of Canvas Curse it’s stated that Drawcia made a pact with Zero to gain power (explaining why her soul form greatly resembled Zero), and Dark Nebula from Squeak Squad was known as "Dark Zero" in Japan and is explicitly stated to be of the same species as Dark Matter and Zero.

Yeah, I remember that (though the hints regarding those characters only comes up when you’ve collected all the Energy Spheres in Extra Mode).

Speaking of which, I’ve managed to clear the normal game of RtDL and Extra Mode 100% as well as the regular Arena, but I have yet to beat The True Arena in that one despite having beaten The True Arena in both Kirby Super Star Ultra and Kirby Triple Deluxe. You’d think that the one in RtDL would be easier since it actually gives you three Maxim Tomatoes (one of them in a box that you can take with you into the fight and it will not disappear), but… it’s not. I can’t even get to the Galacta Knight fight.

Does anyone else wish that Meta Knight would get his own, full game, and not just a subgame where you play as him through the regular levels?

That’d be sweet, especially if it covered his origins.

It would be interesting, but they’ll need to expand his moves or the platforming would just be like playing with sword and winged kirby on forever.

Kirby Right Back at You or something like that.

Yeah I only play the games. Which means Kirby Dreamland if someone mentions it to me.

Damn, I thought for sure this thread was going to get a lot more posts…

Time to bump it!

Anyway, what’s your favorite Combo Ability in Kirby 64 (assuming you’ve played it)? Mine is Stone + Needle, the Power Drill. It’s ridiculously overpowered.

Spark+Cutter because you get a double-ended beam sword.

Spark+Fire is funny to use. Set yourself on fire to destroy your enemies.

Dang, I was really hoping that this thread would get more attention…

Anyway, does anyone else wish that Meta Knight would get his own, full spinoff game? They’d have to diversify his moveset to make him less of a Wing Kirby+Sword Kirby combination, but it’d be nice to finally have a canon backstory for him in the games…

Bumping this up in the hopes of it getting more attention.

What do you guys think a Kirby RPG would be like? How would Copy Abilities work in an RPG? What kinds of party members would you have other than Kirby himself?

Discuss.

Yeah, but perhaps you could also have some friendly enemies like the Helper system in Super Star as partners, kind of like the partners in the first two Paper Mario games.

As for Kirby using Copy Abilities, I was thinking that you could basically switch between several of them at any time during battle (as well as have Kirby’s normal abilities when not using one) and use them on the field as well. You’d start the game with some of the basic ones, and the partners based off of enemies would have their standard Abilities, which Kirby would be unable to use himself. You can get other Abilities to switch from by completing quests and defeating bosses, as well as occasionally finding optional ones in the field after completing some kind of puzzle or beating an optional boss.

Kirby’s Epic Yarn is honestly the only "non-traditional" main series Kirby game that I actually enjoy. I hated Canvas Curse and Mass Attack, and since Rainbow Curse is the same style of gameplay as Canvas Curse, I’m avoiding that one.

But Epic Yarn is quite fun, though I’ve never managed to beat all the minigames with Kirby’s neighbors, and thus I never managed to get all of the fabrics. I’ve managed to do everything else, though.

Also, I really wish they would bring back the Yo-Yo, Mirror, and Jet Copy Abilities from Kirby Super Star/Super Star Ultra. I thought those abilities were really cool, but apart from the remake, those abilities haven’t been seen since.

Hmm I expected more comments in this thread.

Well anyways I wished they made a second Kirby Air Ride I loved the first one and kinda wished they expanded on it.

Fun fact: Air Ride was originally going to be on the N64 and would’ve been more or less completely different (it had Poppy Bros. Sr. and Mr. Frosty as playable characters for one thing, and Poppy Bros. Sr. had a unique design that hasn’t been used since), but it was in development hell for several years before being quietly cancelled. It was quite a surprise to many fans when it was suddenly announced as a Gamecube title.

And yeah, I’d love to have a sequel to Air Ride as well. Maybe they could do the much bigger version of City Trial that they had always envisioned for that mode but weren’t able to do because of technical limitations.

I always did love City Trial due to how much crap that could happen there though I wonder why they even bothered including a Air Ride mode since City Trial you could unlock most of them anyways.

Top RideRI was okay but the only stages I loved was Light and Sand. Particularly sand because that plant or whatever was completely random.

I know there was some of the concepts implemented in Smash 4 but I’d still like a sequel that if possible could include online City Trial though I expect much rage quit from that.
