    Kirby is the lovable gumball that is all about friendship and saving the world. Except, he isn't. In fact I don't think Kirby cares about any of that at all! Theorists, I went back through all of the Kirby games and I started to notice that Kirby... wasn't all that heroic. He doesn't care about ANYONE or ANYTHING but himself. Don't believe me? Well, I'm about to fill you up with so much proof, you'll wish you had an appetite like Kirby!

    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.

      ur arguments are sound yet u DID mention kirby is a villain and visuals that hint at it
      MatPat its ok to give different viewpoints to us but the problem is with youtube if u dun over said stuff u wont get traction
      I know its just a theory and even u urself don’t necessarily believed in it either but the problem is Nobody will know from ur presentation
      u need to understand that this is a show u r putting on and ur goal is to convince ppl into believing ur theory so every argument of its just a theory shd NOT be used u have to understand that

      like dun say he is the reincarnation of a destructive god or something it is very easy for ppl to think u r trying to say kirby is evil that way dun hunt at the villain part make sure ur whole argument is circle around building kirby up as a innocent or naive child with too much power

      TLDR please refrain from over saying things if it make sense
      PS btw i still wanna know how part ii will go actually can u still do it?

Personally I would like to hear what you have to say about Kirby.

    My little brother just reminded me that Kirby is pretty much a baby. If Kirby really is a baby god of destruction, that would explain some things. If you take something away from a little kid, they're going to get upset and throw a tantrum. If you take something from a baby god of destruction, they're gonna destroy some stuff.

    At least the thing that grants wishes is not the skull heart....
    The skull heart turns women with “impure” wishes into skullgirls, who wreck the place.
    The skull heart is seen as “evil”, but is it really evil?
    Please look into this question!

      Don't stress too much about Mat's theories, he's always making it look like some sweet character is evil. You enjoy the little puffball guilt free, nothing on this channel should really be taken that seriously, it's just sort of entertaining. I'd hate for your love of Kirby to be ruined by this silly video. No worries!

  • Iconoclasm_
    Iconoclasm_ 5 days ago +1

    Doooooooooooooon't quite think Meta Knight was just trying to implement an "exercise routine" for popstar. I think his idea of "less lazy" was more along the lines of a military dictatorship. May be a father to his men, and in future games he's ok, but he's quite the blood knight early on at least. Hell, he even goes on to ask Nova to fight the strongest warrior throughout time and space, Galacta Knight, who was sealed in fear of his power (who may or may not be future Kirby, so you may have a bit of a point Matpat, wink wink). Kirb jumped into action to prevent what was likely a military dictaorship on popstar, and that was indeed a heroic act. Not to mention, after Marx betrayed him, Kirb jumped straight into action, not forced by anyone, managing to undo what Marx had actually done. Also, Nova did seem to return after being destroyed, as he had to be there to grant Meta Knight's wish. Also it's heavily implied there's another Nova in Robobot, being mechanized and used to a neferious purpose.

    but hey what about the other games :
    amazing mirror: he sees that something is not right in the mirror world and goes investigate it.
    canvas curse: kirby sees the threat that drawcia is and he (or it or ... whatever) doesn't have any personal reasons to save the day.
    kirby mass attack: once again, he dont have any personal reasons, it is quite clear what the situation is like.
    triple deluxe: ooookkk, initially he thought the dream stalk(forgive me if i'm wrong with these words) was work of dedede, but he imediatly see that it was not not the king's fault and actually, kirby goes rescuing him after taranza kidnapped him.
    planet robobot: it's clear that something wasn't right on popstar, so kirby went to solve the problem.
    star allies: he notices something strange in dedede's castle and go invetigate it, and eventually, going after the jamba hearts.

    and the fact he is easily manipulated by the villains and being really stubborn is because he's a child minded being...
    but this dont' make him a person who just think on himself, he can act like this sometimes like in squeak squad, but, as i said, he's really a child, and actually, he's very friendly in peace times, with a lot of friends he made trough the series.

    PS: this may not make sense, but if something hurts you it's because it is dangerous or it's your enemy, get what i mean?

    but either way good job with this video and channel, love your work.

    So if someone kills your spouse, you're supposed to ask why they do this before you kill them? Dude please, Kirby is a baby star warrior, easily taken advantage of. So it's not his fault that powerful enemies know about this and try to take over the galaxy. It's like when an adult takes advantage of a little kid. What do you think happens.
