|— Kirby • Kirby: Right Back at Ya!|
Kirby (カービィ, Kābī in Japan) is the titular pink puff and main protagonist of Nintendo's Kirby series of video games named after him. The series has been running for nearly two decades, and nearly thirty titles have been released under Kirby's name, most of which are developed by HAL Laboratory Inc. or published by HAL for co-developing studios.
Kirby has been featured in his own anime series, many manga publications in several countries, and even an educational video co-starring Mario. He has his fair share in Nintendo's merchandising from all his appearances, although many of them are only released in Japan.
Kirby lives in his dome-shaped home in Dream Land, a country on his home planet Pop Star. His adventures take him throughout Dream Land and occasionally into local star systems for various reasons, and he has saved his home land several time from cruel villains such as the wizard Nightmare, the nasty jester Marx, and the universe conquerer Magolor.
