Nintendo has confirmed in a way that each Mario game is like its own self-contained story and world. The Mario series does have callbacks to other games still, when its not just SMB1 for the millionth time. But yes, Kirby is more consistent with lore in its own way.
Thanks. :) But I don’t really consider myself the go-to person for Nintendo knowledge. If I did, I would be playing every series Nintendo has made which unfortunately is a challenge of itself.
@Leauntus
I would prefer to not keep the possible crossover in the format of SMBZ, sorry. I would be fine with seeing some story where the newest extraterrestrial threat that Kirby has to deal with happens to be in Equestria. Or its something from Equestria that is summoning Kirby and his dimension to Equestria. The Mane Six and other supporting characters would be Kirby’s traveling companions for the adventure who do have their own ways of defending themselves. Meta Knight and King Dedede would also be in the story and since we are in an era where the Kirby games are always celebrating their history, this could act like a second Star Allies where the Dream Friends and other older characters can make appearances just for the hell of it.

Now that you mention it, that would probably make more sense. Some parallels would likely not even work, an example being that Kirby and MLP don’t have a “main villain” per se like the source material (being Bowser and Doctor Eggman) and more so have a new villain show up some time after the last. Sort of like Dragon Ball, I guess you could say.
But even with that in mind, I’m curious what the story would be, what characters would be involved, and why Kirby (if we’re going off of what you said) is visiting Equestria.

Ironically, even without Kirby, MLP can do it’s own self contain DBZ inspired flash series because their cast are practically parallel’s to Z, even more than Sonic
Twilight/Goku
Rainbow Dash/Vegeta
Pinkie Pie/Gotenks
Fluttershy/Kid Trunks
Rarity/ Android 18
Spike/ Krillin
Starlight/Gohan
Applejack/Piccolo?
Iron Will/ Hercule Satan
Sunset/ Future Trunks
Trixie/Yamcha?
Celestia/ King Kai/ Whis
Luna/ Supreme Kai/ Beerus
Discord/ Majin Buu
Chrysalis/ Cell
Tirek/ Frieza

I don’t think it necessarily has to copy DBZ. The original SMBZ had Mario/Goku, Luigi/Krillin, Yoshi/Piccolo, Sonic/Trunks, and Shadow/Vegeta, Mettalix/Broly Cell/ Cross Dimensions/time travel, and the Chaos Emeralds/Dragon Balls
Alvin Earthworm had to kill of the whole Sonic cast just to make things fit in the Mario universe, and I don’t to imagine that scenario taking place in Equestria, especially when Kirby fits better a the visitor. Personally, I think it should be an original story or at least based off of Super and not Z.

On the topic of a sort of an Kirby x MLP crossover in the form of SMBZ, that truly begs the question: How will it be formatted? Like which characters replace who? What will the main setting be? Who would be Metallix in this case?
If I had to propose something, I can definitely see Sonic and Shadow being replaced with Twilight and Starlight Glimmer. Like Sonic and Shadow, both characters had initially started off as rivals (briefly, in a magical sense), to soon forming a mutual relationship with one another. As for Kirby’s side of things, I can’t really tell whether or not it would be Kirby and Meta Knight, or Kirby and Bandana Waddle Dee (who’s sort of Kirby’s Player Two at this point).

@Macaroni C-Pony
That is true. To my understanding, he was just super disinterested in the show, and had to repeatedly clarify to fans it wasn’t his playing ground, nothing extreme or egregious.
@Red-Supernova
Really? I would honestly think it’s the other way around. Mario’s lore and canon is pretty difficult to understand at times, for even the Mushroom Kingdom’s location is highly inconsistent, with Odyssey and all. Kirby has had some pretty cool callbacks from past events, and locations like in Squeak Squad when Meta Knight repaired and brought the Halberd out of the ocean which was submerged back in Super Star. Though, it’s probably a matter of opinion. I can see why you’re very Knowledgeable in Nintendo stuff especially now seeing who’s in your icon.
@Wayneponeth
That would be really fun. Like Red-Supernova mentioned, it would be very cool to see a ROM hack of that.

Well he did it to tell his fans to shut up about it since they kept pushing it in his face, even though he didn’t really get the characters and the show. It still resulted in people saying that he misinterpreted the show and that he shouldn’t have had lashed out on MLP and bronies like that but he was in a very bad spot when that happened. As far as I know, the only other time he brought up MLP after that journal was through a throwaway line in one of his future journals.
I remember seeing one of those fans make a video that had them all pissy about Mark doing furry art in between SMBZ episodes. I was just as anxious and a bit impatient as they were but to put down one of their other passions was so damn rude and uncalled for. Mark was also unsatisfied with how the direction of the old series was going which also added to why the old series had to be cancelled and shelved for the time being.
Thankfully he didn’t harass other bronies or started a lot of anti-brony content. It would have just made his situation worse and he really needed some chilling out for his health’s sake.
@Wayneponeth
Me too. Imagine a rom hack of that mode from Kirby Super Star with new level designs, replacing Dedede with Pinkie and a harder AI on Pinkie.

@Red-Supernova
I could be wrong, but that sounds very tame reaction compared to more extreme example I’ve seen. Unless he’s actively vocal about disliking MLP, there no controversy. If he doesn’t like it that’s fine. No need to bother him over it.
And that was only part of the reason. He did have fans trying to rush the series, but was also getting harassed over his furry art, which may be why he didn’t want to do SMBZ anymore because that’s all anyone cared about.
@Leauntus
Well, yeah, but my point was IF he was a very adamant anti-brony, it would be sort of hypocritical considering he was bullied off the internet for a while.

Kirby’s world is sadly never consistent much like with the Mario games. Despite having lore between games, a lot of mystical places and objects are usually never present in the next game. The only time we had consistency with places was the anime, and that was its own continuity.
You could say during Adventure, the Dark Matter trilogy and the Flagship games that Kirby had passed his humble beginnings and was starting to improve, but once Super Star/Super Star Ultra happened in the timeline and Kirby could now materialize ability hats and the powers he has been given are now extremely more robust, Kirby had proudly earned the title of God Slayer. But even in the games that didn’t use the Super Star mechanics, Kirby was still flexing his prowess during the final boss encounters in those games.
You can read below here from what I remember about his history to+wards MLP.
His other works aren’t as known due to SMBZ’s massive popularity but he’s got a lot of talents. (Except with Youtube Poop sadly) He has a very shitposty sense of humor which could be part of his attitude. He’s even done some shitpost animations before and even during every era of SMBZ.

@Red-Supernova
I agree. It’s a pinnacle part of Kirby’s world and Dream Land’s worldbuilding as whole and is definitely one of the most iconic pieces in the Kirby franchise though it did make an appearance in Super Star/Super Star Ultra… Several times, technically.
Yeah, or maybe a little after that like probably around the time he beat Kirby’s Adventure Nightmare, or KDL2 Dark Matter. Also I meant to say MLP and not SMBZ. My bad! Are there any citations of him expressing dislike towards MLP?
@Macaroni C-Pony
This is very surprising. Obviously if he’s furry I wouldn’t judge him, but he’s like the last person I would expect to be one since his work as a sprite animator seems so vastly different from that sort of field.

Indeed. It was rude of Pinkie but Celestia knows better than to lash out for something as trivial as a cupcake. Now with Kirby? I think we would get another Gourmet Race.
@Macaroni C-Pony
He is. When FiM was new, he expressed that he had no interest in seeing it, other than making one MLP-related pic with one of his characters and saying that Rainbow Dash was the closest pony that came to his interests. But with the combination of his motivation towards the old SMBZ storyline, the pressure from his fanbase who came to him every stinking day over when the next episode was, and the nagging of those same fans who wanted to see him become a brony, he eventually got fed up with it all and wrote an entire journal entry saying that he has watched the first season of MLP:FiM and the premiere of Season 2 and considered it not worth the hype. I’m sure by the time he wrote that journal, he was already prepping up that the old SMBZ story was going to be scrapped but just had to take his anger out on the brony community first. As time went on, we learned that he has anger issues and can be very brutal when it comes to expressing his opinions.
@Leauntus
Its a shame the Fountain of Dreams was only used for one game compared to the Tree of Harmony which appeared from time to time. But give the Fountain of Dreams credit, at least it was never destroyed.
So KDL1 Kirby?
When did I say that Mark Haynes hates his own creation? He is a Nintendo juggernaunt like me but can still be brutal towards franchises he doesn’t care about or feels are going in a direction he dislikes.
@Macaroni C-Pony
I thought he cancelled the old series because he was losing motivation at the time and his fanbase was constantly nagging him.
He’s still trying to get over his anger issues but he did find the motivation to give SMBZ another shot. I’m as anxious as every other fan to know when the next episodes are coming but I don’t want to see history repeat itself and see the reboot get canned again. While I think the old series still has some value, I think the reboot has topped it once the first episode was put online.

@Leauntus
If I’m not mistaken, the reason why he “cancelled” SMBZ a few years ago was because of online harassment for certain “interests”
Obviously, he got over it because the reboot already has 2 episodes out.

@Red-Supernova
In an alternate universe, that would have been something else that’s for sure. In my opinion, I always saw the Tree of Harmony as Equestria’s equivalent to the Fountain of Dreams in Dream Land since both act and correspond with each world’s main abstract idea (Being Friendship and Dreams).
@Wayneponeth
If there was a Pinkie Pie VS. Kirby fight, it’d probably have to be Kirby earlier on in his series since that was arguably when he was at his weakest. Modern Kirby would probably stomp.
@Macaroni C-Pony
He’s a furry? And he hates MLP? To my understanding, Mark seems more of a Nintendo juggernaut if anything.

Let’s hope Pinkie Pie doesn’t do that “You gonna eat that?” thing like she did with Celestia. :P
But honestly, I think Kirby vs Pinkie Pie would be pretty intense too if Pinkie Pie fully utilizes her cartoonish reality bending abilities. XD

UGH, I really need to play Squeak Squad sometime! Its the only mainline Kirby game I haven’t played yet. I can’t decide on either emulating it or supporting Nintendo by purchasing it off the Wii U Virtual Console. I also need to finish the rest of Star Allies content before the next Kirby game rolls around as well.
As for a Kirby & MLP crossover, I would be down for that. I’m sure if it was a fanfic, it should follow the conventions of recent Kirby games by having the first letter of each chapter spell something out. And if were also going by recent Kirby conventions, imagine secret chapters that act like the second quest of a Kirby game with a new boss and a true final boss through the story’s “True Arena”.
I remember someone on this site’s Kirby Thread claiming that would have made good material for this kind of crossover is that the Tree of Harmony would be one of the creations of the mysterious Ancients that Magolor spoke of in Return to Dream Land. Of course this person said it would have been a good idea if it weren’t for the show shooting that down with the Pillars being the creators of the tree and elements……but still questioned how they even got the seed to grow the tree to begin with?

@Red-Supernova
Kirby and Twilight would most certainly get along.
@Wayneponeth
Yes, that’s a good way to put it for starters, though later on Squeak Squad had to still throw the strawberry cake into the equation which indirectly butchered the character since the situation with Daroach and the chest since that should have no longer been in the equation up to that point. I think Squeak Squad portrays Kirby horrendously, but it’s probably because it was made by another company than Hal, like I mentioned.
Other than that, you nailed it my friend! From face-value Kirby might seem sort of 2-dimensional and comparable to a cardboard box, but when you culminate everything about him– He literally becomes one of the most likeable and admirable characters in fiction (in my eyes at least). Yeah, he’s unfathomably powerful and will definitely shove his weight if you decide to intrude his, and his people’s peace but he’s means no harm despite all that. He has too much humility to be boasting about such things, and just wants what’s best for him and his world. This is sort of why I adore the idea of a Kirby X My Little Pony crossover (hence the reason I commissioned this), and for many other reasons. Both properties have several similarities. There’s gotta be more crossover fanart of the two, I swear.
It also gladdens me that I’m actually able to talk about this, on an MLP website of all places to other bronies. I really need this more nowadays.

@Macaroni C-Pony
He’s both of those things, but I certainly agree that he is for sure the latter far more than the former. Kirby is generally portrayed as harmless, peaceful and as you put it selfless & polite. He will initiate any extreme measures if others’ lives are in danger, and if his home is currently in the process of being seized by some otherworldly threat. I really like the way you put Kirby considering he is my favorite character of all time, though the only minor bit I’d disagree with is the bit about Kirby destroying a planet over his food getting stolen which is almost never true most of the time, as the only point it was was Squeak Squad, which portrayed Kirby terribly (mainly because a different company other than HAL made it).

He won’t destroy a planet over food being stolen but he does keep track records. When Daroach stole his strawberry shortcake, Kirby immediately went after Dedede because he has a history of stealing food on Popstar. Not exactly a monstrous thing to do but Kirby did demonstrate the tendency to fight before asking questions, especially when it comes to food.
And honestly none of this “power talk” of Kirby means that we see him as a monster. It’s just that he is the kind of hero you don’t wanna mess with despite his cute exterior. It’s more of an admiration toward Kirby than anything, at least for me. Kirby is one of the kindest Nintendo characters but it doesn’t mean he is a small little pushover, especially considering who he faces in every game. He will actively fight anything that threatens Popstar or even other planets, no matter how terrifying or powerful they are.(I mean we all know what 02 looks like). In a way, it’s that incredible power and courage that adds to Kirby’s charm in addition to his kindness and cuteness. He is also extremely laid back in his life. He is all content with life just eating, playing, and sleeping but if an eldritch planet eater or something of the sort shows up, he’ll quickly jump up to fend them off to protect his home. I think that’s just why I like Kirby so much. He is a cute, lazy, little pink puff ball with the courage and power level to fight those gigantic indescribable cosmic horrors.

You know it’s ironic, most of the gaming community describes would Kirby as a monster or “God-killer”, when he’s literally about the nicest Nintendo character there is.
He’s has be known to share his food more often than he is to destroy a planet over it getting stolen.
