Fairies are rather short, and their body proportions are similar to the angel found in Kirby's Dream Land 3 (although she is slightly smaller and has eyes similar to Kirby's). Their outfit tends to be a dress. Their hair colour is different.
The Fairies live on the planet Ripple Star, watching over the Crystal. However, the Dark Matter force invades the planet. The Fairy Queen loses her mind so she cannot think of what to do next. Ribbon then joins forces with Kirby to save her planet. She and Kirby save Ripple Star, and the fairies are happy once more.
