Appearance(s) Kirby VS Majin Buu
~ Kirby arriving to Dreamland

Kirby is the main protagonist of the series of the same name. He appeared in the 40th episode of Death Battle, Kirby VS Majin Buu, where he fought against Majin Buu from the Dragon Ball series.


A thousand years ago, the star warriors have defended the universe from the infamous and powerful Nightmare. However, most of them ended up dying, leaving only two left. The heroic Meta Knight, who fought in the war and barely made it out with his life, and our famous pink hero, Kirby, who avoided the entire war in a star spaceship, and crash landed on the planet Popstar. Kirby has fought and battled enemies and protected Dreamland from disasters such as Nightmare , Necrodeous, Yin-Yarn, and the large army of Dark Matter , as well as his arch-enemy, the cruel and lazy King Dedede, who is not as threatening as the previously mentioned villains. Kirby is famously known for inhaling his enemies and copying their abilities. He also uses his Warp Star for transportation, which can move faster than light, though he can fly on his own for long periods of time.

Kirby's feats are amazing, but he does have some flaws, such as how he is very young and impulsive. He has endangered Dream Land twice by attacking King Dedede and Meta Knight because in the former's case, he didn't listen to Dedede, and in the latter's because he was hungry. He is also an unintelligent baby, and has to train with Meta Knight to mature as a warrior.

  • Kirby is currently the smallest combatant on the show being only about 8 inches tall. Despite this, his physical strength is on par with Superman, He-Man and Thor.
  • Kirby is the third combatant to send their opponent into the sun, the first two being Son Goku and Thor, and the last being Segata Sanshiro.
  • Despite mentioning ten of his abilities, Kirby only used five in the fight.
    • Also, he's got much more abilities, but it's likely that they weren't all mentioned for sake of shortness.
  • Kirby is the fifteenth Nintendo character in Death Battle, after Samus Aran, Goomba, Koopa Troopa, Yoshi, Mario, Princess Zelda, Princess Peach, Link, Pikachu, Fox McCloud, Luigi, Venusaur, Blastoise and Charizard, with the next seven being Donkey Kong, Red, Bowser, Ganondorf, Mewtwo, Lucario and Pit.
  • Kirby currently holds the most ridiculous feat on Death Battle. He threw a monster 30 times his size, on a frying pan, all the way to the sun and back, with the monster becoming cooked into food.
  • Kirby is one of the few characters that directly mimics Ryu's attacks. Deadpool also shares this attribute. However, this may be due to the attacks being related to the Fighter form, whearas Deadpool mimicked it due to his unpredictable nature
  • Kirby's opponent was originally going to be Ditto from the Pokémon series, but it was changed to Majin Buu for a more even matchup. Jigglypuff was also a common request among fans.
  • Kirby is among the most durable combatants, being capable of surviving a planet exploding without any visible injury, whereas his similarly powerful opponent, Majin Buu, was blown to bits by the same experience.
