The Kirby series is a series of Kirby games created by Masahiro Sakurai and developed by the HAL Laboratory. It is one of Nintendo's most popular and best-selling franchises, selling over 50 million units since its debut. The series is known for its bright and artistic setting, cute characters, cheerful upbeat music, and the ability to inhale an enemy.


All the titles in the Kirby series feature a pink spherical creature named Kirby as the main playable character and protagonist. The most recurring antagonist of the series is King Dedede, owner of King Dedede's Castle and the self-proclaimed, mean ruler of Dream Land. King Dedede has appeared in every Kirby game except Kirby & the Amazing Mirror. Meta Knight is another major recurring character. He is a chivalrous, but enigmatic warrior who assists Kirby. Depending on the situation, he sometimes fights Kirby to get the things he desires. He respects a certain code of honor, and always offers Kirby a sword when fighting with him.

The games' fantasy world of Pop Star includes many regions of different climates and terrain, which are home to many different creatures. The areas in each game have unique names, but they fall into categories such as fiery caverns, open meadows, water-filled or submerged areas, icy mountains, and similar nature-based places.
