Kirby is known for his ability to copy abilities, which has allowed him to take dozens of forms. However, in Kirby’s 30+ years, it’s never been possible to see what would happen to him if he absorbed a handsome, muscular man. Today creatives of the series revealed it.
Kirby directors Shinya Kumazaki and Tatsuya Kamiyama were on hand at the Game Developers Conference 2023 to discuss the challenges in creating Kirby and the Forgotten Land.
The attendees took the opportunity to ask unusual questions that have not been asked out of pity and thanks to them we know that Kirby is a neutral character in terms of extreme feelings that the player might not feel when playing, such as hatred or crying. For this same reason Kirby does not fall in love with something or someone in a game, but the creators do not rule out that, if the design allows it, Kirby blushes or his eyes turn into hearts.
“We haven’t had a title in the series focused on falling in love. Personally, I hope Kirby remains the type of character who takes things as they come,” Kumazaki expressed, while Kamiyama noted that Kirby’s only love is delicious food.

What happens to what Kirby absorbs?
Another question that the creatives answered to Polygon is what happens when Kirby absorbs another Kirby. Nothing would just happen, but Kumazaki confessed that it would be interesting if another Kirby appeared.
On the other hand, the creative revealed that Kirby does not digest his enemies that he absorbs for obvious reasons, so so that this was not grotesque or violent, it was decided that the ingested character would disappear for a moment and reappear in another part of the world.
But what’s inside Kirby? According to Kumazaki, Kirby is full of dreams: “Of course, we wanted to keep a mysterious side to Kirby. So I’ll say we’ll keep it a mystery.”
In case you missed it: Kirby’s unofficial card game featured hot characters.
¿Kirby sexy es real?
In one part of the presentation, the image of a handsome superhero with pink hair appeared, which made many think that it was the official reveal of Hot Kirby, a new form of Kirby after absorbing a sexy man.
HAL Laboratory used the image to illustrate the idea that a Kirby game should be deep, yet accessible: “Make Kirby the hero!”

In this regard, Kumazaki mentioned that it is not a personification or transformation of Kirby, but Kirby’s image of a superhero.
The above became clear when another image was shown in which several Magolors appear instead of Kirby with their respective versions of superheroes. Magolor cannot absorb enemies or copy their abilities.

What happens if Kirby absorbs a sexy or attractive person?
However, this led to a very interesting question, courtesy of Wired staff writer, Megan Farokhmanesh: what if Kirby absorbs a sexy, attractive or hunky person, will he become one?
Kumazaki responded to the question and confirmed that while Kirby would capture the handsome man’s power and muscles, his face would not change, but at best he would probably receive a hat to project it on. [la habilidad de ser guapo]so no sharp jaw lines or more refined features: “I’d stay round.”
Certainly, Kirby has sucked several handsome and beefy men, such as Captain Falcon, Cloud or the fiery Sephiroth, so in a certain way we have already been able to see what Kirby looks like after copying them, curiously what Kumazaki says: Kirby copies his hairstyle or characteristic accessory.
But if what you wanted was to see a muscular Kirby, don’t worry, you won’t be left wanting. Kumazaki did not remember very well when talking about muscular Kirby, since thanks to the anime it was already possible to see it.
In the episode Power Ploy of Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, whose main theme is energy drinks, Kirby is close to being eaten by a monster, but he prevents its jaw from closing thanks to his strength, but the interesting thing is that Kirby does so much strength that his muscles are notorious and even deforms his spherical shape and looks more like a dwarf Majin Buu. Then we leave you the image so you can see what we are talking about.
