Debut: Kirby’s Dream Land (1992)
Affiliations: Dream Land
Availability: Starting fighter
Background: Kirby is a young star warrior who resembles a pink puff ball. He is most notable for his ability to inhale enemies and then copy their abilities. He has appeared in over 20 games since his inception, which typically end in him defeating King Dedede or the Dark Matter (though other end game bosses also exist).
Reasoning: Kirby is Sakurai’s original video game baby and he has been included since SSB for the N64. He is also confirmed for SSB4.
Thoughts: I am excited to see what new “hats” he will acquire from the newcomers in SSB4!
