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.

David McCown
We know that nobody that Kirby eats or hits dies, because bosses keep coming back, but sure let's ignore context for another "x is mental" video
idiot 312

Hello Internet welcome to Game Theory the show where we ignore basic facts to ensure our theories are correct.

Good to see you actively ignoring people making well thought out criticisms to this garbage video, you ignoring context, actively lying, and instead supporting yourself and your backwards method of theorizing. What happened to you man? You’re not even close to being the ‘Smartest Show in Gaming’ like you advertise anymore. You’re a sham, a has-been, an absolute waste of time and energy on this website. I’m just done, I strongly advise anyone reading this to actually LOOK at the games he talks about, so you can tell just how much he lies and stretches points to prove his theories. You’re not a good channel Mat. The general public is just too stupid to see how bad your theories are.

And to those wondering about his part 2, it’s not happening. It’s obvious how bad this theory is, but he won’t admit to it. It’d shatter his precious ego. He’ll just sweep it under the rug and keep making FNaF videos. But to satiate your hunger: It’s heavily implied by the lore of the series that Dark Matter is a form created from negative emotions, and if Dark Matter is given form from positive emotions, it may look similar to Kirby. Gooey from Dream Land 3 is Dark Matter created from Positive Emotions, and a lot of his abilities reflect Kirby’s copy ability. There’s a lot more I can go into, but this comment’s really long already. Look it up yourself if you’re interested, since Matpat’s not gonna bother. And while you’re at it, unsub from Game and Film Theory. Matpat needs a blow to his ego so he’ll finally start respecting video games. Hell, maybe he’ll actually play them too. That’d be a trip huh?

What is Magalore related to Metaknight
R. C.
Is there a Metaknight game? Not smash bros, just a pure game where meta knight is the playable charcter instead of Kirby? Cuz meta knight is my favorite character, and I'd like to know if this game existed.

MXST Quantum
as long as those walking bombs are still in dreamland he can become crash kirby which can literally pick up rocks while making himself explode and one of crash kirby's attacks is called supernova

I have discovered the true nature of mat pat

Not a entertainer but a childhood crushing monster
Not hating love your channel just thought it would be funny
Then if he will do anything until completion can he get me a girlfriend
You think that KIRBYS bad?

Oh my dear matpat you CLEARLY don't know about Chef Kawasaki.
He cooks people ALIVE that includes Kirby and well anyone.
It even says in his original bio
" he doesn't actually use his equipment for cooking instead he actually finds them good for combat"
FOR COMBAT just remember that he COOKS PEOPLE ALIVE and this is in a game about a cute pink ball that likes to consume everything.
Yeah. He cooks people alive.I don't know about you but that sounds pretty dark in messed up to me.
