Kirby is the titular pink puff and main character of Nintendo's game series 'Kirby'. Kirby lives in his dome-shaped home in Dream Land, a country on his home planet called 'Planet Popstar'.

A thousand years ago, the star warriors have defended the universe from the infamous and powerful being called 'Nightmare'. However they ended up dying and and leaving the only 2 survivors, the Heroic and mysterious swordsmen called Meta Knight who fought in the war and barely made it with his life, and our famous pink puffball hero called Kirby, who avoided the war and the destruction in his spaceship and crashed landed on a weirdly shaped planet called Planet Popstar. Ever since the crash landing, he is destined to protect planet Popstar from monster and battle them from disasters like Nightmare, Necrodeouse , Yin-Yan and the ever-so lazy King Dedede, who is not as threatening as the other villains despite the fact that he is the main antagonist of the series.
