The following is a complete list of all Dedede Directory posts from the Kirby JP Twitter.
The Dedede Directory, (referred to in full as "King Dedede's Wisdom! Dededen Great Directory", translated from Japanese 「デデデ大王のひらけ！デデデン大名鑑」) is a running series of posts on the Kirby JP Twitter where King Dedede describes various characters from the Kirby series in his own words. These descriptions are formatted with an image portraying King Dedede with various expressions standing next to a collage of artwork of the character he is describing. The first post in the series was made on July 3rd, 2019, and the series is usually updated in weekly intervals. Each post is generally made on Wednesday at around 12:00 p.m. Japan Standard Time, though the time and date can vary, particularly if a special event is being commemorated.

|Starting today, we're doing a new segment, "King Dedede Reveals! - The Great Dedede-Directory"! I, King Dedede the Great, will introduce the characters of the Kirby series!
First off, let me introduce myself. I'm the great king of Dream Land, and my trademark is my Dedede Hammer. I appear in almost everything in the series, so of course you knew all that!
|Twitter link||King Dedede begins with himself rather than with Kirby, perhaps due to his vain nature.|
|Jul 10, 2019||Kirby||The image contains ten pieces of artwork for Kirby.

|The second entry is the series' protagonist - "Kirby"!
He's a youngster who came to Dream Land alongside the spring breeze, and a glutton who'll suck up anything. With his special copy abilities, he becomes able to use his opponents' powers, but when it comes to his singing... That's one thing he can't improve.
Sometimes he changes shape, splits up, or rolls around for some reason, he really is a strange fella!
|Twitter link||Variants include Kirby riding a Warp Star and Yarn Kirby in the Car form.|
|Jul 17, 2019||Waddle Dee||The image contains eight pieces of artwork for various Waddle Dees. In order from the center image, then clockwise from the top right, the images come from artwork for Kirby: Planet Robobot, another from Kirby: Planet Robobot, Kirby: Canvas Curse, Kirby Super Star, Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, Kirby Super Star Ultra, Kirby's Dream Land, and Kirby Mass Attack.||今日はオレさまの家来たち、「ワドルディ」を紹介してやろう！
|Today I'll introduce my servants, the "Waddle Dees"!
They've got a perfect attendance award for this series, so you can see 'em in every game, with many different looks! There's some of these guys that attack by using stuff like spears or coconuts, and some even drive robots!
They do work in all kinds of places, so I take pride in these servants of mine!! Gah ha ha!
|Twitter link||The text mentions that Waddle Dees appear in every game in the series. Variants include Walker Waddle Dee, Fluff Waddle Dee, Waddle Dee from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, Spear Waddle Dee, and Waddle Dee tossing a Coconut.|

In order from the center image, then clockwise from the top right, the images come from artwork for Kirby Super Star Ultra, Kirby Mass Attack, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, and Kirby's Dream Land.||シリーズ往年のボス、「ウィスピーウッズ」を紹介だ！ポップスターの森の番人で、はにわみたいな顔をしてるな。
|I'll introduce the series' old school boss - "Whispy Woods"! He's the guardian of Popstar's forests, and has a face that looks like a haniwa doll.
Everytime he's beaten by Kirby he starts to tear up, but if you throw a heart after beating him in Star Allies, apparently he'll smile and drop fruits and stars! Alright, gimme some too... H-hey, I don't want carterpillars!
|Twitter link||Haniwa are a type of Japanese terracotta doll known for their distinctive faces made from holes. Kabu is also based on haniwa.|

|This guy is the hooligan of the skies we know all too well - "Kracko"! He's been appearing since Kirby's Dream Land, the first game!
He appears anywhere as long as there is a sky, flies around rapidly, and fires beams and lightning!
Even Waddle Doos and garbage fall outta him... What the heck's going on inside that cloud?! Hey, Kracko! How about dropping some delicious food, will ya?!
|Aug 7, 2019||Waddle Doo||The image contains seven pieces of artwork for Waddle Doo. In order from the center image, then clockwise from the top right, the images come from artwork for Kirby's Return to Dream Land, Kirby Super Star, Kirby: Canvas Curse, Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Kirby: Squeak Squad, and Kirby's Dream Land.||でかい目玉に毛が2、3本の「ワドルドゥ」だ！
|It's "Waddle Doo", with the big eye and 2-3 hairs! They look so much like Waddle Dees that even I get them mixed up, but these guys fire beams from their eyes!
And those beams bend like whips!
In Kirby: Canvas Curse they roll around calmly, even after turning into balls, with their eyes still wide open... But doesn't scraping their eyes on the gound hurt?!
|Twitter link||The Kirby Super Star artwork includes Kirby inhaling the Waddle Doo.|
|Aug 14, 2019||Meta Knight||The image contains seven pieces of artwork for Meta Knight. In order from the center image, then clockwise from the top, the images come from artwork for Kirby Super Star Ultra, Kirby Star Allies, Kirby Air Ride, Kirby's Adventure, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Kirby: Canvas Curse, and Kirby Super Star.||仮面の剣士といえば、そう「メタナイト」だ！『星のカービィ 夢の泉の物語』から登場している。
|The masked swordfighter - That's right, it's "Meta Knight"! He's been appearing since Kirby's Adventure.
I guess even I gotta admit that his speed and sword skills are nothing to sneeze at.
He's apparently battled Kirby countless times, always sticking to sword duels. Though, the first to kick Kirby's butt will be ME, of course!
|Aug 21, 2019||Bonkers||The image contains six pieces of artwork for Bonkers. In order from the center image, then clockwise from the top right, the images come from artwork for Kirby Star Allies, Kirby's Adventure, Kirby Super Star Ultra, Kirby Super Star, Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, and Kirby: Squeak Squad.||ゴリラみたいでワイルドな「ボンカース」を紹介するぞ！コイツは『星のカービィ 夢の泉の物語』からの登場だ。
|Let me introduce the wild and gorilla-like "Bonkers"! He's been appearing since Kirby's Adventure.
When Kirby inhales him, he gets to use the powerful "Hammer" copy ability!
I wonder what the secret to his muscles is... Wait, could it be his favorite food?! Bananas?!
Alright! Time to gather some bananas! I'm gonna get buff, too!
|Twitter link||Bonkers' love for bananas was previously indicated in his Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go! route.|
|Aug 28, 2019||Mumbies||The image contains three pieces of artwork for Mumbies. In order from left to right, the images come from artwork for Kirby's Block Ball, Kirby's Dream Land, and Kirby's Dream Land 3.||包帯グルグル巻きの、よくわからん球体「マンビーズ」を紹介だ！
|Introducing "Mumbies", the bandaged balls we know all too well!
They're old-timers who've been appearing since the first Kirby's Dream Land, but... Kirby actually can't inhale them, and they're not intimidated by him either!
That alone is pretty amazing, but it's a mystery if they're just bandages that can't be inhaled, or if there's a body hidden under there... Oh well, don't worry about that! Gah ha ha!
|Twitter link||The text plays up a mystery regarding whether Mumbies is just bandages or has a body underneath.|
|Sep 4, 2019||Mr. Frosty||The image contains five pieces of artwork for Mr. Frosty. In order from the center image, then clockwise from the top right, the images come from artwork for Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, Kirby Super Star Ultra, Kirby's Adventure, Kirby Super Star, and Kirby: Squeak Squad.||デデデン大名鑑、第10回は「ミスター・フロスティ」だ！
|The Great Dedede-Directory's 10th entry is "Mr. Frosty"!
His firm, overall-clad body and big round peepers are quite the eye-catcher, huh?
He attacks by charging and throwing ice, but he always shakes and smacks his butt... This guy just has to show off his butt, I guess.
If he wants to show it off that badly, why doesn't he try wearing a swimsuit?
|Twitter link||The text makes a subtle early reference to Mr. Floaty, who would soon be revealed in Super Kirby Clash.|
|Sep 11, 2019||Nightmare||The image contains four pieces of artwork for Nightmare. The images consist of two pairs of artwork for Nightmare in his Power Orb form and his Wizard form, with the left images made for Kirby's Adventure and the right images for Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land.||ついに紹介する時が来てしまったか…。コイツは「ナイトメア」だ！
|I guess it's finally time to introduce this guy... This is "Nightmare"!
When he wraps his body with that starry cape, even the Star Rod's attacks bounce right off!
He's a really dangerous fella, who was up to no good in Kirby's Adventure!
Lately I've been hearing that people saw someone who looks just like this guy... I don't like that one bit...
|Twitter link||The text alludes to Parallel Nightmare.|
|Sep 18, 2019||Rick||The image contains five pieces of artwork for Rick. In order from the center image, then clockwise from the top right, the images come from artwork for Kirby Star Allies, Kirby's Dream Land 2, Kirby's Star Stacker for the Game Boy, and the remaining two also from Kirby's Dream Land 2.||つぶらな瞳のハムスターみたいなヤツは「リック」！初登場は『星のカービィ2』だ！
|The hamster-y guy with the round eyes is "Rick"! He first appeared in Kirby's Dream Land 2!
He's got tricks that even caught ME off guard, like spinning a ball on an umbrella. And he runs up walls too, he's definitely something else!
There's this rumor that he looks really cute when he's fast asleep. Getting everyone to pamper him just by sleeping... Hnng, that won't work on me!
|Twitter link||Many pieces of artwork include Kirby.|
|Sep 25, 2019||Kine||The image contains five pieces of artwork for Kine. In clockwise order from the top right, the images come from artwork for Kirby's Star Stacker for the Game Boy, Kirby's Dream Land 2, Kirby's Dream Land 3, Kirby Star Allies, and another from Kirby's Dream Land 2.||黄色いタラコくちびるのコイツは「カイン」だ！『星のカービィ2』から登場している。
|The guy with the fishy yellow lips is "Kine"! He's been appearing since Kirby's Dream Land 2.
As you can guess by his fish look, he's good at performing actions underwater!
He's got this move that freezes enemies! ...But he freezes himself if he uses it too long.
Stop being so scatter-brained and get it together, for crying out loud! You got a wife, after all!
|Twitter link||Many pieces of artwork include Kirby. One also includes Gooey.|
|Oct 2, 2019||Coo||The image contains five pieces of artwork for Coo.

|After land and sea, only the sky is left - that's right, it's "Coo"!
Just like Rick and Kine, he's been appearing since Kirby's Dream Land 2.
This guy is so good at flapping around in the air, he can even fly while spinning with an umbrella!
Oh yeah! Why don't we hold a Dream Land air race? He'd definitely make a good match against my hovering! Gah ha ha, I actually can't wait!
|Twitter link||Many pieces of artwork include Kirby.|
|Oct 9, 2019||Broom Hatter||The image contains six pieces of artwork for Broom Hatter. In order from the center image, then clockwise from the top right, the images come from artwork for Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Kirby Air Ride, Kirby's Dream Land 3, Kirby's Dream Land, Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, and Kirby Super Star Ultra.||魔法使いのような帽子をかぶった「ブルームハッター」！
|Wearing a hat like a magician, it's "Broom Hatter"!
In KDL3 and Star Allies, you can get the "Cleaning" ability from them!
They've been doing nothing but cleaning since forever, so seeing them fly in Air Ride was quite a surprise!
Also, there is this mystery of whether they're hiding a face under that hat or not, but... You'd better not try anything!
|Oct 16, 2019||Ice Dragon||The image contains four images for Ice Dragon. In clockwise order from the top right, the images come from screenshots from Super Kirby Clash, Kirby's Dream Land 3, Kirby's Dream Land 2, and art for Kirby's Dream Land 2.||今回は「アイスドラゴン」を紹介してやろう！『星のカービィ2』からの登場だ。
|Today I'm gonna introduce "Ice Dragon"! He first appeared in Kirby's Dream Land 2.
Some drawings of him came to life! Yeah, that happened.
As his name implies, he's a dragon who's good at using ice and cold air to attack!
I thought he'd have a hard time dealing with heat, but apparently he's shown up at volcanoes, too. The ice's gotta melt, is he okay with that?!
|Twitter link||This is the first directory to make use of screenshots in place of artwork.|
|Oct 23, 2019||Dyna Blade||The image contains three pieces of artwork for Dyna Blade. In clockwise order from the top right, the images come from artwork for Kirby Air Ride, Kirby Super Star, and Kirby Super Star Ultra.||白き翼の巨鳥、「ダイナブレイド」！
|A giant bird with white wings - "Dyna Blade"!
She once utterly destroyed the crops in Dream Land, but it turns out she did it to take care of her chicks. Hm, she's a pretty devoted parent, huh?
One time she was also hostile towards Kirby, but then she threw herself into danger to get him up to the Battleship Halberd in "Revenge of Meta Knight". She's got a strong sense of duty there!
|Oct 30, 2019||Noddy||The image contains seven pieces of artwork for Noddy. In order from the center image, then clockwise from the top right, the images come from artwork for Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Kirby Super Star Ultra, Kirby's Adventure, Kirby Air Ride, Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, Kirby: Squeak Squad, and Kirby Super Star.||グゥ～…ハッ！いかん、大名鑑の時間だ！
|Zzz... Ah! Oh no, it's time for the great directory!
It's "Noddy", wearing that spiffy night cap. This is the only character who yields the the "Sleep" Copy Ability!
I hear that in the past there's been lots of stages with Noddy walking around, but these days they only sleep. Alright, bet I can wake them right up in just one shot!
|Nov 6, 2019||Grizzo||The image contains three pieces of artwork for Grizzo. In clockwise order from the top right, the images come from artwork for Kirby Super Star, Kirby's Dream Land, and Kirby Super Star Ultra.||ハチマキは気合のあらわれ！？「グリゾー」を紹介してやろう！
|The headband shows its fighting spirit?! Let me introduce "Grizzo"!
We know this guy from Kirby Super Star and others.
Despite its lax appearance, it's a tough guy that Kirby can't inhale so easily! And watch out for its body tackle attacks!
|Twitter link||One piece of artwork features Poppy Bros. Jr..|
|Nov 13, 2019||Gordo||The image contains nine pieces of artwork for Gordo. In order from the center image, then clockwise from the top right, the images come from artwork for Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Kirby's Dream Land 3, Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, Kirby's Dream Land, Kirby Air Ride, Kirby: Canvas Curse, Kirby: Squeak Squad, Kirby Super Star Ultra, and Kirby and the Rainbow Curse.||初代から登場、お邪魔キャラクター「ゴルドー」だ！
|It's the character who's been appearing since the very first game and is always in the way - "Gordo"!
His hard body is covered in sharp spikes. He can't really be inhaled or beaten... So basically, he's almost invincible! In Super Kirby Clash, Whispy Woods apparently drops some big Gordos.
This strength that Kirby can't do a thing against... Might be a useful hint on how to beat that guy!
|Nov 20, 2019||Knuckle Joe||The image contains four pieces of artwork for Knuckle Joe. In clockwise order from the top right, the images come from artwork for Kirby Super Star Ultra, Kirby's Star Stacker for the SNES, another from Kirby Super Star Ultra, and Kirby Super Star.||コイツは、高みを目指すファイターの「ナックルジョー」だ！
|This is "Knuckle Joe", a fighter with big dreams!
One first glance he seems like a fine young man, but if Kirby approaches him, he'll suddenly start punching and kicking, that naughty rascal!
In Kirby's Star Stacker, he wanted to use a "star piece" for his training. I'd love to know what kinda training THAT would've been!
|Twitter link||One piece of artwork features Knuckle Joe being carted away after an injury by a Waddle Dee. Another features him posing with Kirby.|
|Nov 27, 2019||Chef Kawasaki||The image contains three pieces of artwork and one screenshot for Chef Kawasaki.

|The gourmet cook "Chef Kawasaki"!
He's one of the few characters who yield the rare "Cook" ability!
When he's a Friend in Star Allies, he'll only focus on cooking dishes, too. In other words... if all 3 friends are this guy, it's basically an all-you-can-eat buffet?! Grrr... that dang Kirby is so lucky!
|Twitter link||The screenshot features Cook Kirby with a line of three Chef Kawasaki allies.|
|Dec 4, 2019||Chameleo Arm||The image contains two pieces of artwork and two screenshots of Chameleo Arm.

|Today I'll introduce "Chameleo Arm" from Kirby Super Star!
It can change its body color, and even turn transparent! At those moments where you can't see it, the key to victory is the "Paint Ability", which you can get from its attacks.
Oh, I got an idea! Why don't we put those skills to good use and have it help me with my japes?!
|Dec 11, 2019||Tac||The image contains three pieces of artwork and one screenshot of Tac. In clockwise order from the top left, the images come from artwork from Kirby Super Star, Kirby Super Star Ultra, Kirby Air Ride, and a screenshot from Kirby Mass Attack.||『スーパーデラックス』で初登場の「タック」だ。
|It's "Tac", who first appeared in Super Star.
Wow, he swiftly reaches out with his hand and steals Kirby's copy ability! When he does that, you gotta beat him quickly before he runs away!
He's almost like an artisan with those thieving hands of his. But isn't he kinda overdoing it with that whole sneak thief thing...? Is there a reason why he does that?
Hey Tac! You'll feel better if you tell me everything!
|Twitter link||The Kirby Mass Attack screenshot is from Kirby Brawlball.|
|Dec 18, 2019||Marx||The image contains four pieces of artwork and one screenshot of Marx. In clockwise order from the top left, the images come from a screenshot from Kirby Star Allies, and artwork from Kirby Super Star, Kirby Star Allies, Kirby Super Star Ultra, and another from Kirby Super Star.||コイツは銀河に野望を持つピエロ、「マルク」だ！
|This is "Marx", the jester with galactic ambitions!
Apparently, he caused some huge incident once, 'cause he wanted to be free to pull as many pranks as he likes. He may be cute, but don't let your guard down!
I heard he can pull off this crazy powerful move, called "Black Hole"... Wait, it cuts his body in half?! W-we can't show that here!
|Dec 25, 2019||Variety (Corori, Don Puffle, Snoppy, Dekofloof, & Ringle)||The image contains five pieces of art, each representing a different enemy from the Kirby series.

|Let's have a special kind of introduction this time!
Guys that look ready to party, guys that fit with winter... all of them got those Christmas vibes!
But "Decofloof" can make infinite cake, so that guy is almost too good to be true!
Apparently that guy's cake fills even Kirby to the point that he can't move anymore.
I wanna eat as much as I can, too!
|Twitter link||This is the first Dedede Directory to feature more than one subject at once. Each of the enemies represented also appeared in the Christmas Eve illustration from 2019 which was posted the previous day.|
|Jan 1, 2020||The Squeaks (Daroach, Spinni, Storo, Doc, & Squeakers)||The image contains five pieces of art and a screenshot representing the members of the Squeaks. In clockwise order from the bottom-right, the images are artwork of Storo, Doc, Spinni, three Squeakers, and Daroach (all from Kirby: Squeak Squad), and a screenshot from Kirby Star Allies showing Daroach in action.||よし、お前たち！この1年もデデデン大名鑑を一緒に楽しもう！
|Alright, guys! Let's keep enjoying the Great Dedede-Directory together this year!
Looks like it's "the Year of the Rat". So here's some rat-like fellas: "the Squeaks"!
In Kirby: Squeak Squad they fought Kirby over treasure chests.
Maybe I should form my own squad and look for treasures, too! How does "the Dededes" sound?!
|Twitter link||Each of the characters represented also appeared in the New Year's Day illustration from 2020 which was posted on the same day. The text mentions that it is the year of the rat in the Chinese zodiac, hence the representation of the Squeaks.|

|It's "Gooey", the wibbly wobbly dark blue life form!
He went on a big adventure with Kirby in Kirby's Dream Land 3. With his overly long tongue, he can catch enemies and then copy their abilities!
And also, Kirby can apparently recover health if he swallows Gooey! What the heck is up with this guy's body?!
Well, he's full of mysteries that he doesn't even understand himself, from what I've heard...
|Twitter link||Artwork includes one of Gooey eating a Cappy, and one of him using the Spark ability near Kirby. The text alludes to Gooey's mysterious origin and the fact that Kirby regains a little stamina when swallowing Gooey in Kirby's Dream Land 3.|

|It's Kirby's feline friend: "Nago"!
This guy's friend abilities are kinda unique!
Like slamming Kirby against the ground like a rock, or sliding around with him like a rag, he's got all kinds of moves with thrilling ways to use Kirby!
Though apparently, if another friend gets picked, he'll open his eyes and just glare. D-don't give in to such pressure!
|Twitter link||The lower-right screenshot and the text describe how Nago becomes miffed if not picked as the primary friend. Several of the images shown also feature Kirby.|
|Jan 22, 2020||ChuChu||The image contains three pieces of art and four screenshots representing ChuChu. Each piece of artwork is from Kirby's Dream Land 3, and the screenshots are from Kirby Star Allies (lower-right) and Kirby's Dream Land 3 (other three).||『星のカービィ3』で登場したなかま、「チュチュ」を紹介するぞ！
|Let me introduce "ChuChu", a friend who appeared in Kirby's Dream Land 3!
She can stick to the ceiling, and even fly a little.
The way she wears that ribbon or rides parasols, she actually doesn't look half-bad!
Her friend "Nyupun" wears a hat, too. I guess they both got a sense for fashion, but... nothing beats my crown!
|Twitter link||The screenshot in the middle features Nyupun, who is named in the text as well. Several of the images shown also feature Kirby.|

|Today, let me introduce "Pitch", another friend who appeared in Kirby's Dream Land 3!
This brave fellow will carry Kirby on his back, who's actually bigger than him.
He's a little squirt, but when you combine with him, he'll show off some surprising skills!
You can have fun with him as an ice shaver, an RC plane, or even a boomerang - he's better than any toy! I wanna play with this guy, too!

Normally he'd just hang down from a thread, but when he became a Friend in Star Allies, this guy did a complete 180!
Now he's running around, doing all sorts of moves using his webs, and even pulling off Friend Abilities, too!
Were you secretly training?! Hnng...! You've grown so much! Good job!
|Twitter link||One of the screenshots shows Como using a Friend Bounce on King Dedede. In the text, Dedede praises Como's promotion to a playable Friend in Star Allies and asks if he secretly trained for the role.

|Let me introduce "Blocky", who's like a block of stone!
This guy looks dense, but he rolls around and jumps surprisingly quickly.
If you're not careful, he'll smash you flat as a pancake!
That's not all! When he hardens his body, his defensive power is so strong that it can repel a lot of attacks!
...Does Kirby have what it takes to break through this iron wall of defense...? Grrr...!

Their debut was in Kirby's Dream Land 3, and quite a while later, they've appeared again in "Star Allies"!
Together with their many kids, they clutter up the stage and run around.
These two always seemed to get along well... but who'd have thought that their bond was strong enough to do comedy together?! I wanna see your show, too!
|Twitter link||The Kirby and the Rainbow Curse screenshot is of Pon & Con's comedy show from the Secret Diary, which is also mentioned in the text.|

|This time I'll introduce "Dark Matter", a fated enemy of mine.
He's a dangerous fella with a swordfighter form and a spherical form, he got a single creepy eye, and he attacked Pop Star in Kirby's Dream Land 2 and 3 !
He has the power to possess the bodies of others, and while I hate to admit it, I was also...
Wait, why is that picture of me here?! D-delete that...!
|Twitter link||The Kirby Mass Attack screenshot is from Kirby Quest. King Dedede comments on the picture of him being possessed, wanting it removed from the collage.|

|This is "Zero", a mysterious being which leads Dark Matter!
Accompanied by Dark Matter, this one was behind the invasion of Pop Star in Kirby's Dream Land 3! Whoa, that white mass keeps bringing forth more and more Dark Matter to attack!
H-hmph! I'm the great king! No matter what sorta guy comes to face me, I'll pulverize 'em!
|Twitter link||The image in the lower-right is an illustration that appears in-game if Kirby loses to Dark Matter and Zero in Boss Butch. The images are distinctly from the Virtual Console edition of the game, as the Boss Butch Hyper Zone arena uses this version's palette (orange and green clouds rather than red and blue).|
|Mar 11, 2020||Bouncy||The image contains three pieces of art and three screenshots representing Bouncy. In clockwise order from the upper-left, these are a screenshot from Kirby Star Allies, artwork from Kirby's Dream Land 2, artwork from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, a screenshot from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, a screenshot from Kirby's Dream Land 3, and artwork from Kirby: Canvas Curse.||今回はバネみたいな「バウンシー」を紹介しよう！
|This time I'll introduce the spring-like "Bouncy"!
These appear in Kirby's Dream Land 3, Kirby 64, and many others, so they're familiar faces at this point.
There's also big ones and fancy ones among 'em, but they all bounce around!
Apparently they're jumping around 'cause they enjoy the view from up there.
Gah ha ha! You just keep doing that, but nothing beats the view from my castle!
|Twitter link||The Kirby and the Rainbow Curse image is of the Bouncy Figurine.|
|Mar 18, 2020||Ribbon||The image contains two pieces of art and three screenshots representing Ribbon. From the center, then in clockwise order from the lower-right, these are artwork from Kirby Star Allies, artwork from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, a screenshot from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, a screenshot from Kirby Star Allies, and another screenshot from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.||妖精「リボン」は『星のカービィ64』で登場したぞ！
|The fairy "Ribbon" first appeared in Kirby 64!
When Ripple Star was being attacked by dark clouds, she flew into space and asked Kirby for help. While looking for the crystal shards, we did stuff like playing at the beach, or having a snack in the desert. That sure was a fun adventure.
...Whoops! Sorry, kinda got myself lost in nostalgia there.
|Twitter link||The screenshot in the upper-right is a drawing of Ribbon from the Staff Credits sequence for Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.|
|Mar 25, 2020||Adeleine||The image contains two pieces of art and four screenshots representing Adeleine. From the center, then in clockwise order from the lower-right, these are a screenshot from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, artwork from Kirby Star Allies, a screenshot from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, artwork from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, a screenshot from Kirby Star Allies, and one more screenshot from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.||赤いベレー帽がトレードマークの「アドレーヌ」！
『星のカービィ64』でリップルスターを救うため、共に冒険した仲間だ！ 描いた絵が実体化する、不思議な力の持ち主だぞ！ いろんなたべものも出していたが、オレさまも絵を上手く描ければ食べ放題も夢ではないな…よし、上達するコツを教えてくれ！
|It's "Adeleine", with her trademark red beret!
She's an ally who went on an adventure with us to save Ripple Star in Kirby 64! She has a mysterious power that lets the pictures she paints become real! She also made lots of food like that, but man, just imagine the all-you-can-eat buffet if I could paint that well... Alright, teach me the secret behind it!
|Twitter link||The post does not mention either Kirby's Dream Land 3 or Ado, keeping the relationship between Ado and Adeleine a mystery.|
|Apr 2, 2020||Kapar||The image contains two pieces of art and four screenshots representing Kapar. In clockwise order from the lower-right, these are two screenshots from Kirby's Dream Land 3, artwork from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, two screenshots from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, and artwork from Kirby's Dream Land 3.||今回は「カパー」の紹介だ！
|This time I'm introducing "Kapar"!
This guy's great at moving around in the water... Or so you'd think, but instead he'll actually jump up ridiculously high to attack you! He may look like a kappa, but it's hard to get a read on the guy. Also that ring on his head is pretty nifty, 'cause it apparently grows right back, no matter how many times he throws it. Hey, come on, let me try throwing it around a bit, too!
|Twitter link||This post was unusually made on Thursday rather than Wednesday, likely to avoid interfering with April Fool's Day.|
|Apr 8, 2020||Plugg||The image contains five screenshots representing Plugg: two from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards and three from Kirby Star Allies.||今回紹介する「コンセ」は、『星のカービィ64』で初登場！
頭を地面にさして電気を流す姿は、なかなかかわいいじゃないか。 ウワサによると『スターアライズ』でプラズマを放てるほど強くなったのは、改造でパワーアップしたかららしい。 なるほど！昔は無かった背中のネジを見れば、それも納得だぜ！
|This time I'm introducing "Plugg", who first appeared in Kirby 64!
He actually looks kinda cute when he plugs his head into the ground to sent out electricity. There's rumors that the reason he's gotten stronger, to the point that he can use Plasma in Star Allies, is apparently 'cause he underwent some modification that powered him up. I see! He didn't have that screw on his back before, so I'd believe it!
|Twitter link||The text reveals that the reason Plugg grants the Plasma ability in Star Allies as opposed to Spark is because it was modified to become more powerful, as shown by the screw on its back.|
|Apr 15, 2020||Chacha||The image contains two screenshots and two pieces of artwork representing Chacha in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.||マラカス振ってダンシング！「ビバコ」を紹介するぞ！
『星のカービィ64』に登場し、海辺や火山などあちこちでダンスしていたな。 カービィが近寄らない限りずっと踊っているようだが…いったい、何がお前をそこまで熱くさせるんだ！ オレさまも、タンバリンでビバコとセッションでもしてみるかな？
|Shake those maracas and dance! Time to introduce "Chacha"!
They appeared in Kirby 64 and were constantly dancing all over the place around the beach and volcano. Looks like they really just keep on dancing, unless Kirby gets close to them... What the heck got them so fired up?! Maybe I should break out the tambourine and have a little jam session with Chacha?
|Twitter link||Dedede mentioning his tambourine is a reference to Dedede's Drum Dash.|
|Apr 22, 2020||Acro||The image contains one piece of artwork and three screenshots from Kirby's Dream Land 3 and one piece of artwork and two screenshots from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.||海のあばれんぼう、「アクロ」を紹介するぞ！
『星のカービィ3』や『64』で水中を暴れ回り、カービィを苦しめたな。 大きな口からはドクロやあのゴルドーに、触れると爆発する「ギョックン」まで吐き出してくるのだ！ オレさまがうまいたべものを教えてやるから、そんな危ないものは飲みこむなーっ！
|Introducing "Acro", the hooligan of the sea!
In Kirby's Dream Land 3 and 64, he was on an underwater rampage, giving Kirby a hard time. From that giant mouth of his, he spits up things like skulls, those Gordos, and even "Pedos", which explode when you touch them! I'll be so nice and teach you about the wonders of food that actually tastes good, so stop swallowing dangerous stuff like that!
|Twitter link||The image in the middle-right is an illustration that appears if Kirby loses to Acro in Boss Butch.|
|Apr 27, 2020||Kirby||The image contains artwork of: Kirby inhaling from Kirby Air Ride, Mini Kirby from Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, Sword Hero Kirby from Super Kirby Clash, normal Kirby from Kirby's Dream Land, sleeping Kirby from Kirby Super Star, Quick Draw Kirby from Kirby's Adventure, Stone + Rick Kirby from Kirby's Dream Land 2, Ghost Kirby from Kirby: Squeak Squad, Robobot Armor Kirby from Kirby: Planet Robobot, injured Kirby from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, and Cutter Kirby from Kirby Battle Royale.||なにやら今日は、カービィの大切な記念日だそうだな！
|Oh yeah, looks like today's Kirby's precious anniversary!
I've already introduced him, but... Eh, whatever, here's a special something for you! Let me show off some more of this guy's various forms! ...Well, it is a pretty important day. Celebrating it every now and then isn't so bad, I guess. Gah ha ha!
|Twitter link||This was a special post made outside of the usual schedule to celebrate the 28th anniversary of Kirby's Dream Land; April 27th fell on a Monday in 2020. King Dedede acknowledges the fact he already covered Kirby in another Dedede Directory post (and even links the tweet), but decides to do another one because "it is a pretty important day".|
|Apr 29, 2020||Bobo||The image contains one piece of artwork and three screenshots from Kirby's Dream Land 3, one screenshot from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards and one piece of artwork and one screenshot from Kirby: Canvas Curse.||コイツは「ボボ」！…雨に降られるとヤバそうだな。
カービィがのみこむと「バーニング能力」を得ることができるぞ。 『星のカービィ3』では、体の炎の大きさによって歩く速さが違うらしい。 よし、一番大きいボボを呼び出せ！オレさまがハンマーからくり出す炎と、どちらの燃え方が上か…勝負だっ！
|This is "Bobo"! ...Probably doesn't do well in the rain.
Kirby can get the "Burning Ability" when he swallows these. In Kirby's Dream Land 3, their walking speed apparently varies with the size of their bodies' flames. Alright, get me the biggest Bobo of them all! Let's see which burns higher - it, or the flames I cast from my hammer... Bring it on!
|May 6, 2020||HR-H / HR-E||The image contains two pieces of artwork and two screenshots from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.||ブルブルスターのビル群に現れるロボ「HR-H」は、『星のカービィ64』のボスだ！
|The robot "HR-H" appears among the buildings of Shiver Star, and is a boss of Kirby 64!
He'll come at you swinging his giant arms, or shoot missiles and lasers. And he can transform too, so even if you beat him, he'll just become "HR-E" and attack again. It's nice that the robots in this series who look like me also got that neat transformation feature!
|Twitter link||The last line is likely referring to HR-D3, another robot in the HR "series" that resembles Dedede and can transform into a laser cannon.|
|May 13, 2020||Bronto Burt||The image contains screenshots from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse and Kirby Battle Royale and artwork from Kirby's Epic Yarn, Kirby's Dream Land 3, Kirby's Dream Land and Kirby: Triple Deluxe.||今回は「ブロントバート」を紹介しよう！
シリーズの常連だが、よく名前を間違えられるらしい。「ブロントバート」だぞ？ あちこちでパタパタ飛んでいて、『コロコロカービィ』などではアイテムを運んでいたりもしたな。 中には帽子のヤツもいるが…手もないのにいったいどうやってかぶったんだー！？
|This time, I'll introduce "Bronto Burt"!
They're regulars in the series, but apparently people get their name wrong a lot. It's "Bronto Burt", alright? These guys flutter about here and there, and in stuff like Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble they also carry items. Some of them wear hats, too... They don't have any hands, so how in the world are they putting those on?!
|Twitter link||King Dedede reiterates the proper spelling of "Bronto Burt", as it is commonly misspelled (especially in Japanese, given that "Burt" is one character away from "Bird"). He is also confused by how the Bronto Burts can carry items if they have no hands.|
|May 20, 2020||Orbservor||The image contains screenshots of the four Orbservor variants from Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble, as well as artwork for the green and blue variants.||どこからともなく現れるナゾの目ん玉「メガイター」だな！
『コロコロカービィ』でなんどもカービィの前に立ちはだかったヤツだ！ ぶつかっても痛くないが、ワナや場外にはじきとばされないよう注意が必要だぞ。 いいか？いくらボヨヨンとはじかれる感覚が楽しくても、むやみやたらにつっこむなよ！
|A mysterious eyeball appears out of nowhere - it's "Orbservor"!
This one kept showing up before Kirby in Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble! Hitting it doesn't hurt, but you gotta be careful to not get knocked into traps or outta bounds by it. Got it? No matter how fun it is to get bounced around like that, you can't just rush in all willy-nilly!
|May 27, 2020||Parasol Waddle Dee||The image contains screenshots from Kirby Star Allies (showing Dedede crouching underneath a Parasol Waddle Dee's Chumbrella) and Kirby's Epic Yarn, and artwork from Kirby: Squeak Squad, Kirby Star Allies, Kirby Super Star Ultra, and Kirby Super Star.||コイツは「パラソルワドルディ」！
ワドルディがただパラソルを持っただけ、と思うなよ？高いところもゆっくり降りることができ、敵の攻撃も防げるぞ！ さらに『スターアライズ』では、大きなかさで仲間も守れるのだ！うむ、なかなかやるな。 ただ、オレさまがいる時は、もう少し高くさして欲しいぞ？
|It's "Parasol Waddle Dee"!
You think this is just a Waddle Dee with a parasol? Well, they can actually get down slowly from high places, and even block enemy attacks! And in Star Allies, they protect their buddies with a huge umbrella! Hm, not too shabby! Though, could you hold it a bit higher when I'm under there?
|Twitter link||In the text, Dedede notes that Parasol Waddle Dee could just be considered a Waddle Dee holding a parasol. He also comments on the Star Allies screenshot, asking Parasol Waddle Dee to "raise the parasol a little higher when I'm around".|
|Jun 3, 2020||Bugzzy||The image contains screenshots from Kirby Super Star, Kirby Mass Attack (specifically, the Strato Patrol EOS sub-game), and Kirby Star Allies, as well as artwork from Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land and Kirby Super Star Ultra.||初代こん虫キング「バグジー」を紹介しよう！
大アゴで敵をつかんでふっ飛ばすのだが、手に入るコピー能力が作品によって違うぞ。 『夢の泉デラックス』などでは「バックドロップ」、『スターアライズ』などでは「スープレックス」で、どちらも投げ技が得意だ！ くぅ～見てるだけでも爽快だぜっ！！
|Let me introduce "Bugzzy", the original king of insects!
He grabs enemies with his big mandibles and sends them flying, but the Copy Ability you get from him varies between installments. In some like Nightmare in Dream Land he yields "Backdrop", while in others like Star Allies he yields "Suplex", both of which got great throwing moves! Hnng... Even just watching him is so invigorating!!
|Twitter link||Bugzzy is referred to as as the "original king of the insects", referencing his Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go! pause screen description, which mentions that he passed his title on to Beetley.|
|Jun 10, 2020||Paint Roller||The image contains artwork from Kirby's Adventure and Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, as well as screenshots from the aforementioned games and Kirby: Canvas Curse.||コイツは「ペイントローラー」だ！
『星のカービィ 夢の泉の物語』で初登場したぞ。 実はシリーズで初めて、描いた絵を実体化させたヤツなのだ！ 1本のクレヨンでカラフルに描いてみたり、ローラーがついた足の片足立ちで絵を描いてみたり、 自然にやっていることが、まるで大道芸なみのスゴさだな…。
|This is "Paint Roller"!
He first appeared in Kirby's Adventure. This guy was actually the first one in this series who could make his drawings become real! It's impressive how he manages to draw colorful pictures with one crayon, and draw them while standing on one leg with those roller skates on - almost like he's doing a street performance...
|Jun 17, 2020||Mr. Tick-Tock||The image contains artwork from Kirby's Adventure, Kirby Super Star Ultra and Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, as well as screenshots from the same games.||「ミスター・チクタク」は、『夢の泉デラックス』などで登場した中ボスだ！
「マイク」能力をコピーできる数少ないキャラの1人で、頭のベルを鳴らして音で攻撃するぞ！ 気合いが入っているのか、その音は実にけたたましいのだ。 昼寝中のカービィやノディの耳元で鳴らしたら…どうなるのか楽しみだわ！
|"Mr. Tick-Tock" is a mid-boss who appears in Kirby's Adventure and others!
He's one of the few characters that the "Mike" ability can be copied from, and he attacks with the sounds from the bells on his head! He must really be giving it his all, 'cause that sound is incredibly loud. Maybe he could start ringing right by Kirby's or Noddy's ears... Now that's something I'd like to see!
|Jun 24, 2020||Coner||The image contains artwork from Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land and Kirby's Block Ball, and screenshots from Kirby's Adventure and Kirby Star Allies.||コイツは、ヤドカリのような見た目の「コナー」！
大きなハサミで攻撃するかと思いきや『夢の泉の物語』をはじめ、どの作品でもただ歩いてるだけの、のんびり屋だ。 カラにこもった姿も見せるが、よくそのハサミと両目が納まるな。 よし、たべものを用意しろ！コイツを観察しに海へくり出すぞー！
|This hermit crab-looking fella is "Coner"!
You'd think this one would attack with its huge claws, but it's actually pretty chill and has been doing nothing but walk around in any installment since Kirby's Adventure. It can also retreat into its shell, but those claws and eyes barely fit, I guess. Alright, grab me some snacks! I'm going out to sea to watch these guys!
|Jul 1, 2020||Heavy Mole||The image contains two artworks and two screenshots, one of each for Kirby's Adventure on the left and Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land on the right side.||今回紹介するコイツは「ヘビーモール」！
『夢の泉の物語』などで、カービィと地中で戦ったボスだ！ 回転ノコギリで地中を掘り進み、後ろにミサイルを放つぞ。 赤いミサイルをのみこむとカービィは寝てしまうので、その隙にヤツにトドメだー！ …ってお前、カービィが寝てもそのまま前に進むのかーっ！
|Today I'm gonna introduce "Heavy Mole"!
This is a boss who had an underground battle with Kirby in Kirby's Adventure! He digs through the earth with his rotating saws, and fires off missiles behind himself. Kirby will fall asleep when he swallows the a red missile, so use that opportunity to finish him off! ...Hang on, why do you just keep going forward still while Kirby's asleep?!
|Jul 8, 2020||Dedede Mechs special edition||The image contains screenshots of various robots that look like King Dedede - Robo Dedede from Kirby's Dream Course, Dededestroyer Z, HR-D3 and its Dedede Robo variant from Kirby Mass Attack, and another Dedede Robo appearing as third boss of Scope Shot sub-game from Kirby's Return to Dream Land.||2年目に突入した大名鑑、今回は「デデデメカ特集」だ！
オレさまを模した、実にかっこいいロボが勢ぞろいだぞ！ ドリルやミサイルを武器に、リングや荒野、ときには別の星でカービィと激戦をくり広げたな。 地上を動くヤツはそろっているから、あとは水中や空を自由に動けるロボもあれば完ぺきだぜっ！
|We are now entering the second year, so let's celebrate with a "Dedede Mechs Special Edition"!
Here's some really cool robots that look like me! They got weapons like drills and missiles, and they've had some fierce battles with Kirby in the ring, out in the wilderness, and even on a different planet sometimes. We already got plenty of these that move along the ground, so all we'd need next is some that can move about underwater, or across the sky, and then it'd be perfect!
|Twitter link||This post celebrates entering the second year of Dedede Directory, acting as a special edition.|
|Jul 15, 2020||Chilly||The image contains artwork from Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land in the center, Kirby Super Star Ultra, Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, and Kirby's Block Ball on the left, and Kirby: Canvas Curse on the right, as well as screenshots from Kirby's Dream Course and Kirby Star Allies.||たくましいまゆげの雪だるま「チリー」！冷気を放つ攻撃が得意だ！
『星のカービィ64』ではコイツを持ち上げて投げると、バラバラになってしまうぞ。 弱そうに思うかもしれないが、ヘルパーとなればたとえ火山のステージでも力を貸してくれるのだ！ 体は冷たくても心は温かいヤツ、といったところか？
|It's "Chilly" - the snowman with the powerful eyebrows! Attacks that give off a chill are his specialty!
In Kirby 64, if you pick him up and throw him, his body will fall apart. He might seem like a weakling, but as a Helper he'll even help you out on volcanic stages! His body may be cold, but his heart is warm, huh?
|Jul 22, 2020||UFO||The image contains artwork from Kirby's Adventure, Kirby: Squeak Squad and Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, with screenshots from Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Kirby's Block Ball and Kirby Battle Royale.||「ユーフォー」は空飛ぶナゾの円盤だ！
コイツからはなんと、レアな「U.F.O.能力」が手に入るぞ！ 『夢の泉の物語』では予測不能な素早い動きに、カービィも振り回されていたな。 他にも、なぜかアイテムをばらまくヤツや、エアホッケーをするヤツもいるらしい。 うーむ、本当にコイツは何なんだ…？
|Alright, "UFO" is a mysterious disk that flies through the air!
And this thing actually yields the rare "UFO Ability"! In Kirby's Adventure, even Kirby could barely keep up with their quick, unpredictable movements. Also, for some reason there's a few of them that dispense items, and even some that play air hockey. Hmm, what exactly are these things...?
|Jul 29, 2020||Blipper||The image contains artwork from Kirby's Adventure, Kirby: Canvas Curse, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Kirby's Return to Dream Land, Kirby Super Star Ultra, Kirby: Squeak Squad, Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, and a screenshot from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse.||コイツは「ブリッパー」！海などでよく見かけるヤツだな。
多くが赤色の体をしている中、『スーパーレインボー』では緑色の珍しいヤツもいたぞ！ 水中で生きてるくせにゴーグル姿なのは…まさか、水の中で目を開くのが怖いのか？ まあお互い長年登場しているよしみだ、オシャレってことにしてやろう！
|This is "Blipper"! You often see these guys in water.
Most of them are red, but in Rainbow Curse, there's also some rare green ones! They're wearing goggles even though they live in water... Don't tell me these guys are scared of opening their eyes underwater? Well, we're basically old friends, since we've been appearing in the same stuff for years now - so I'm just gonna say they're fashionable!
|Twitter link||The Kirby and the Rainbow Curse image is of the Blipper Figurine, showing both the red and green variants.|
|Aug 5, 2020||Flappy||The image contains a piece of artwork and two screenshots from Kirby Air Ride.||ハート形のしっぽが目を引く「フラッピィ」を紹介していくぞ！
『カービィのエアライド』では、このカラフルなつばさで飛び回っていたな。 近づいても気にしない様子を見るに、一緒にレースを楽しんでいるのかもしれん！ よーし、オレさまのウィリーバイク・デデデカスタムと勝負してみないか！？
|Let me introduce "Flappy", with its eye-catching heart-shaped tail.
With those colorful wings it got, this one was flying around in Kirby Air Ride. As far as I can tell, it doesn't mind it if you get close, so maybe it likes racing together? Alright, how about you try going up against my Wheelie Bike Dedede Custom?!
|Twitter link||Dedede mentions the Wheelie Bike Dedede Custom, his personalized Wheelie Bike which he uses in Air Ride.|
|Aug 12, 2020||Caller||The image contains a piece of artwork, and two screenshots from courses Sky Sands and Checker Knights from Kirby Air Ride.||『カービィのエアライド』で登場した「カーラー」！
コイツからは「トルネイド」能力が手に入るぞ。エアライドマシンをスピンさせるほど強力な風を身にまとい、レースを邪魔してくる！ …のだが、カービィはその風ごとお構いなしにヤツをすいこんでしまうのだ。 ぐぬぬ、やはりあなどれん強さだな…！
|This is a "Caller", which appeared in Kirby Air Ride!
You can get the "Tornado" ability from it. Its wind is powerful enough to make the Air Ride Machines spin, so it get's in the way of the races with that! ...Though, Kirby still swallows all that wind without any trouble. Ugh... You really shouldn't underestimate HIS power...!
|Aug 19, 2020||Wheelie||The image contains artwork of Wheelie from Kirby's Adventure and Kirby: Squeak Squad, artwork of King Dedede from Kirby Air Ride, artwork of Wheelie Rider Kirby from Kirby Super Star Ultra, and a screenshot from Samurai Kirby in Kirby Super Star.||今回は「ウィリー」を紹介しよう！
この姿の通り、走ることが大得意だ。実はメタナイトの「戦艦ハルバード」は、中でコイツを走らせることで動力源を得ていたぞ。 『エアライド』ではオレさまに相応しいモデルも登場し、共に走ったな！ 高速で駆け抜けながらカービィをふっとばして気持ちよかったぜ！
|This time, I'm introducing "Wheelie"!
As you can see from his looks, this guy is really good at running. Actually, Meta Knight's "Battleship Halberd" was powered by having these running around inside of it. In Kirby Air Ride there was also a model that fit me, and we raced together! Man, it was so nice to zip around at high speeds and leave Kirby in the dust!
|Twitter link||Dedede again mentions the Wheelie Bike Dedede Custom, and also brings up that the Halberd is powered by Wheelies.|
|Aug 26, 2020||Pichikuri||The image contains a piece of artwork and two screenshots from Kirby Air Ride.||魚のような見た目で、なぜか空中を飛んでいる「ピチクリ」だ！
『エアライド』ではよく仲間と行動し、近づくと鋭いトゲを出してくるぞ。 コピー能力「ニードル」が得られるのも納得だな！ それにしても…その小さな羽で飛べるとは思えんのだが、まさかお前もホバリングの使い手！？…なわけないか。
|It looks like a fish and somehow flies through the sky - it's "Pichikuri"!
In Air Ride, they usually act in groups, and if you get close, their sharp spines come out. And obviously, you get the "Needle" Copy Ability from them! But still... I don't think it should be able to fly with those tiny wings. Could it be that you too, are a user of the hovering technique?! ...Yeah, like that'd ever happen.
|Sep 2, 2020||Soarar||The image contains artwork from Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, Kirby: Canvas Curse, Kirby Mass Attack, Kirby: Triple Deluxe, and Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, as well as a screenshot of Dedede Resort - Stage 4 from Mass Attack.||『鏡の大迷宮』で初登場、「ソアラ」の紹介だ！
空中を一直線に飛んでいて、作品によってはアイテムを運ぶヤツもいるぞ！ 『あつめて！カービィ』のデデデリゾートには、ソアラが持つパネルを狙うゲームがあってな。なかなか楽しかったぞ。 くぅ～っ、思い出したらあのリゾートにまた行きたくなるぜ！
|Introducing "Soarar", who first appeared in The Amazing Mirror!
These guys fly in a straight line, and depending on the game, there's also some of them that carry items! In the Dedede Resort from "Kirby Mass Attack", there was a game where you had to aim at panels that Soarar were carrying. It was pretty fun. Hnngh, now that I've remembered it, I wanna go to that resort again!
|Twitter link||Dedede mentions Dedede Resort and its Soarar game, saying that he'd like to visit it again.|
|Sep 9, 2020||Boxy||The image contains artwork from Kirby & The Amazing Mirror and Kirby: Squeak Squad, as well as screenshots from the same games.||大きなリボンがトレードマークの中ボス「ボクシィ」！
貴重な「マジック能力」が手に入る、唯一のキャラだ！ 攻撃でくり出す箱からは様々なものが出てくるのだが、マキシムトマトなどが出てくることもあるらしい。 何が出てくるかお楽しみだな！…って、チラリと見える姿はまさか、ワドルディーっ！？
|It's "Boxy", the mid-boss with her huge trademark ribbon!
She's the only character who yields the precious "Magic Ability"! There's many things that can come out of the boxes she creates with her attacks, apparently even Maxim Tomatoes. I'm so excited to see what's gonna come out! ...Wait, am I seeing this right? Is that a Waddle Dee?!
|Sep 16, 2020||Dark Meta Knight||The image contains artworks from Kirby & The Amazing Mirror (center) and Kirby Star Allies (top right), as well as his card from the Kirby Card Swipe Sub-Game from Kirby Super Star Ultra, and a screenshot from Kirby & The Amazing Mirror.||仮面の剣士と瓜二つ、「ダークメタナイト」だ！
影を感じる姿通り、コイツはメタナイトの心の闇を写し取った存在で、『鏡の大迷宮』では事件のカギを握るヤツだぞ。 狙いは謎だがカービィを一撃で4人に分裂させたり、メタナイトを一騎打ちで倒しているのだ！ さすがのオレさまもコイツは侮れんな…！
|It's the spitting image of the masked swordfighter - "Dark Meta Knight"!
As you can guess by his shadowy look, this guy's a being who was copied from the darkness in Meta Knight's heart, who's important to the events in Amazing Mirror. It's unclear what he was after, but he divided Kirby into 4 people with one strike, and defeated Meta Knight in a one-on-one fight! I'd really better not underestimate this guy...!
|Twitter link||The image notably does not include his appearance in Kirby: Triple Deluxe.|
|Sep 23, 2020||King Golem||The image contains King Golem's artwork and two screenshots from Kirby & The Amazing Mirror.||まるでタワーのようなコイツは、『鏡の大迷宮』のボス、「キングゴーレム」！
ムーンライトマンションの最深部で、カービィを待ち受けているぞ。 本人はその場から動かず、ゴルドーや岩を落として攻撃してくるのだ。 コイツの上に登って一番上からカービィを見下ろしたら、さぞ気持ちが良いだろうな！
|This guy who looks like a tower is "King Golem", a boss from Amazing Mirror!
He awaits Kirby in the final room of Moonlight Mansion. He himself doesn't move from his spot, and attacks by dropping Gordos and rocks. Man, it'd probably feel great to climb to the top of this guy, and then look down on Kirby from all the way up there!
|Sep 30, 2020||Shadow Kirby||The image contains artwork from Kirby & The Amazing Mirror and screenshots from Amazing Mirror, Kirby Fighters Deluxe, Kirby Star Allies, and Kirby Fighters 2.||カービィ！またお前…ん？コイツは「シャドーカービィ」か！
『鏡の大迷宮』で登場した鏡の国の住人で、ちょこまかと現れるイタズラ好きなヤツだ。 コピー能力を使うことができ、最新作の『カービィファイターズ2』ではカービィと同じ能力で挑んでくるぞ！ だが、残念だな！ヤツを倒すのはオレさまだ！
|Kirby! You again... hm? Oh, this is "Shadow Kirby"!
This guy's a resident of the Mirror Land who appeared in Amazing Mirror - he loves to play pranks and is always running around when he shows up. He can use Copy Abilities, and in the new game Kirby Fighters 2, he'll challenge Kirby with the same ability as him! Well, too bad! The one to defeat him will be me!
|Twitter link||This confirms that the Shadow Kirbys featured in Amazing Mirror and the Kirby Fighters series are the same individual, which was previously a minor point of confusion.|

体が重そうに見えて意外と機敏に動き、長い耳を腕のように振って相手を殴ったり捕まえようとしたり、油断ならんヤツだぞ！ この強さ、弟子がいるのもわかる気がするな。 オレさまも『カービィファイターズ2』参戦記念に、弟子の1人でもとってみるか？
|This is "Box Boxer", who debuted in Amazing Mirror!
This guy's tricky, he is surprisingly fast for his size, and swings his long ears around like arms, trying to hit or catch his opponents! With that sort of strength, he must have disciples as well, huh. Well, to commemorate me joining the battles in Kirby Fighters 2, maybe I should try taking a disciple myself?

|Nov 11, 2020||Cupie||The image contains two screenshots and two pieces of artwork, one each from Kirby & The Amazing Mirror and Kirby: Squeak Squad.||今回は、『鏡の大迷宮』で登場した「アニー」の紹介だ！
登場作品が少なく、アニーからしか入手できない「エンジェル能力」は非常に珍しいといえるな！ 実はコイツが放つハートの矢は、カービィでもすいこめない代物だ。 この矢が当たったらメロメロになってしまいそうだが…安心しろ、痛いだけだぞ！
|This time I'm introducing "Cupie", who appeared in Amazing Mirror!
They only appear in a few titles, so you could say that the "Cupid Ability", which you can only obtain from Cupie, is pretty rare! Actually, those heart arrows they shoot are the darndest thing, even Kirby can't inhale them. You might think you'll turn all lovey-dovey if an arrow hits you, but... Don't worry, they just hurt you!
