Game Theory: Kirby...Dream Land's Biggest THREAT! pt 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 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.

                                  First of, in the second game when Kirby assembles the star rod, if he never fixed the pieces, then Dreamland would never have dreams again. Secondly, in Kirbys Super Star, if he didnt stop the sun and moon fighting, who knows what might happen. Thirdly, in Kirby 64 (I think) if he didnt help Ribbon fix the shards that would defeat Zero 2, then Ripple Star would be gone for good. As for him killing inosent creatures... Theres a chance they actuallt dont die? But instead maybe Kirby finds a way to set them free?

You can't really fault him for being too young to really think things trough, he is a baby 500 years are left till he reach maturity. Star warriors, like Kirby and meta-knight, are nearly immortal and also practically extinct. their own planet doesn't exist anymore so when they end up on popstar, it's like superman landing on earth, it's a world made out of cardboard everything break super easily! Meta-knight is an adult, so he can show restrain and hold himself back to not destroy half the planet by mistake, but Kirby doesn't know how to do that, hes too young. so at a punching competition he literally crack the planet in two because he don't know how to hold back.

He has to save popstar, he’s stressed, worried, he’ll for God’s sake he’s a little child!! He doesn’t listen because he’s stubborn, he could fake all of his happy poyos and hi’s, he could feel terrible on the inside while you said, ‘keeping that smile on his face’.
