Meta Knight (also referred to as Meta-Knight) is a masked, winged swordsman who serves as a recurring character in the Kirby series, first appearing in Kirby's Adventure. He is a mysterious figure, and his backstory is not clearly shown in the game series. The installments he appears in usually feature him as a boss, though there are instances where he and Kirby team up. Though most of his schemes originate from arguably good intentions, the way he tries to accomplish his goals are often very extreme, and poorly understood by others. Meta Knight is also the leader of a band of warriors, known simply as the Meta-Knights, and his base of operations appears to be a giant warship, named Halberd.

Along with King Dedede and the Waddle Dees, Meta Knight serves as one of the most recognizable characters in the Kirby series. Despite this fame, he was not very prevalent in the early days of the series, making his only major appearances in titles like Kirby's Adventure and Kirby Super Star (he is notably absent from any of the titles directed by Shinichi Shimomura). However, he would become much more prevalent in the series following his role in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, becoming playable for the first time in the Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land Extra Game Meta Knightmare. He would appear more regularly in the series from that point onward, and would often be playable. Meta Knight is famous for his expert swordsmanship, and combined with his unparalleled aerial mobility, he is a force to be reckoned with. He wields the Galaxia sword, which is a powerful mythical blade in the anime series, and carries some of that mystique to the main series as well.

Twitter KBR 1st Anniversary.jpg
This image is an illustration from Kirby JP Twitter made to commemorate the 1st anniversary of Kirby Battle Royale. Four Kirbys, one with the Sword Copy Ability, another with Water, one with Whip, and one with Bomb are battling for the cake, which is being propped up by King Dedede. Meta Knight, and Bandana Waddle Dee also watch from the sides.
I think this picture looks very fitting for the front page. Waddledee10 17:26, 18 October 2020 (UTC)
