This article is about Kirby's house in Dream Land. For Kirby's apartment room in Kirby's Epic Yarn, see Kirby's Pad.
Gosh, Kirby. Your house sure is round...almost as round as you are!
— Elfilin in Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Kirby's house is a location in Dream Land. As the name implies, it is Kirby's place of residence, and where he goes to sleep at night. It was first seen in full in the manual for Kirby's Dream Course and has since made several appearances in the game series, mostly minor ones. It also appears more prominently in the anime Kirby: Right Back at Ya!.


Artwork of Kirby's house from the manual of Kirby's Dream Course.

Kirby's house is a fairly small white dome-shaped hovel, consisting only of a single room topped with a chimney, one window, and a door. The window has no glass in it (instead only consisting of a wooden frame) and the dome itself appears to be made out of stone or clay. Outside the house is a small sign with some stars on it, which presumably mark the building as Kirby's. Inside the house, there is not much in the way of furniture or other belongings. The only notable furnishings are a bed, a fireplace, and a chabudai (a kind of Japanese tea table). Despite having this home, Kirby is content to have meals and nap wherever he pleases outside, at least during the day; when he sleeps in his bed, he usually wears his green Sleeping cap.

Kirby's house was first detailed in concept art for Kirby's Adventure,[1] though it was not seen from the outside until Kirby's Dream Course. According to an official Japanese profile written to tie in with Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, the house was built for Kirby by the residents of Dream Land after he recovered their stolen food from King Dedede in Kirby's Dream Land.[2] In the official Japanese guidebook for Kirby's Dream Land 3, it is stated that Gooey also lives in Kirby's house.[3]

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Adventure / Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land[edit]

Kirby is seen waking from his bed in his house in the manual for Kirby's Adventure, but his house is never seen from the outside. In both the original game and Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, this scene is also shown as an illustration accompanying the title screen prologue.

In Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, Kirby's house is shown directly as another illustration in the prologue.

Kirby's Dream Course[edit]

Kirby's house appears in the game's manual and in the Japanese-exclusive opening cutscene. Its basic design was established here, and has remained relatively unchanged since.

Kirby Super Star / Kirby Super Star Ultra[edit]

At the beginning of the credits sequence after completing Milky Way Wishes, Kirby can be seen sleeping in his house.

Kirby's Star Stacker (Game Boy)[edit]

Kirby's house appears in the opening scene of Kirby's Star Stacker, with smoke coming out of its chimney. Kirby emerges from behind his house riding on a Warp Star before leading to the title screen proper.

Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble[edit]

At the very end of the game, Kirby can be seen waving from his house's window. When playing in the normal mode, it is on this screen where the player is informed on whether or not they can play the Extra Stage if they collected all 32 Red Stars beforehand.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe[edit]

Kirby's house appears at several points in the introductory cutscene. It is lifted into the air by the Dreamstalk once it starts growing, prompting Kirby to begin his adventure into Floralia. Once the game is over, Kirby's house can be seen at the end of the credits sequence, back on ground level.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land[edit]

A replica of Kirby's house appears in Waddle Dee Town in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. It requires 50 rescued Waddle Dees to build. This is the first time the interior of the house can be fully explored in a game, and what is seen of it largely matches its appearance in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. As Kirby progresses through the game, up to ten photos commemorating his achievements will appear on the walls which can be viewed, and the house can be decorated using up to three figures collected from capsules in stages and in the Gotcha Machine Alley.

Using the bed, Kirby and Bandana Waddle Dee can recover all of their health, and a book beside a small cup can be found on a table which contains information about previous Kirby games. Lastly, the fireplace can be lit using a Fire-based ability, awarding 10 Star Coins once per game load, and the house can be entered through the chimney if Kirby jumps on top of it.

In Kirby: Right Back at Ya![edit]

In the anime series, the residents of Cappy Town build Kirby a home to give him a permanent place to stay in Dream Land (and so he doesn't have to live with any of them). Kirby ends up sharing this home with Tokkori, who often takes control of the place, prompting Kirby to sleep in the nearby tree instead. Kirby's home is frequently destroyed during the show, but is always rebuilt in time for the next calamity.

In the anime, Kirby's house is reasonably furnished compared to the game series. It has drawers, lights, carpets and a television set.


Concept art of Kirby's house from 1993. Within the interior view, the bed is to the left, the fireplace is to the right, the chabudai is in the center, and the entrance is at the bottom. Notice how the window is also to the left, and how the interior is flipped compared to its depiction in Kirby and the Forgotten Land.
  • In Kirby's Dream Course, Kirby Super Star, the anime, and Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, the window of Kirby's house is on its left side; in Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble and all games since Kirby Super Star Ultra, it is on the right.
    • Kirby and the Forgotten Land suggests that the entire design of the house was flipped; it is reversed from the original concept art, presumably to keep the bed aligned with the window.
  • In the opening cutscene for Kirby: Triple Deluxe, the fireplace in Kirby's house doesn't appear to be aligned with the position of the chimney.
