What’s inside that armor? Classified! Just like his golden blade, this guy returns to the fight again and again. Pluckiness is the best armor of all!

— Guest Star Sir Kibble Cutting in Style Pause Screen description in Kirby Star Allies

Sir Kibble, called SirKibble in Kirby Super Star, is a commonly recurring enemy throughout the Kirby series that has appeared in many games, including spinoffs. Sir Kibble himself has never possessed an incredibly major role in any specific game, only appearing as a basic enemy or as a helper, most notably giving Kirby the Cutter Copy Ability when inhaled and swallowed. Sir Kibble's appearance is that of a round, spherical, metallic suit of armor that shrouds whatever may be inside in complete darkness. The top part of his helmet is a detachable blade-like weapon which he uses for all methods of attack. When Sir Kibble guards, he closes his helmet.

Sir Kibble mainly attacks Kirby by taking the blade off his helmet and hurling it at him. It then returns to him, similarly to a boomerang. If Kirby happens to be above his eyesight, Sir Kibble will usually jump before throwing his blade. Sir Kibble is often the main representative of the Cutter ability, and as such, serves as the helper for that ability in both Kirby Super Star/Kirby Super Star Ultra and Kirby Star Allies.

A larger cousin to Sir Kibble called Kibble Blade serves as a Mid-Boss in a number of games in the series. Kibble Blade and Sir Kibble share many similar characteristics, but Kibble Blade has more detailed armor and defaults to an iron gray color.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Dream Land[edit]

KDL Sir Kibble sprite.png Sir Kibble made his debut in Kirby's Dream Land. He mainly sits in place and throws his cutter boomerangs at regular intervals. Since Copy Abilities would not debut until the next game in the series, inhaling and swallowing Sir Kibble here yields nothing except for 1000 points.

In the Extra Game, Sir Kibble is replaced by Boomer.

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

KA Sir Kibble sprite.png Sir Kibble appears in Kirby's Adventure and its remake, now providing the Cutter ability for the first time. This title introduced Sir Kibble's tendency to jump over his own blade when trying to hit Kirby from behind.

Kirby Super Star/Kirby Super Star Ultra[edit]

KSS Sir Kibble.png SirkibbleSSU.png Sir Kibble appears in Kirby Super Star and its remake. Here, he can be summoned as a helper by transforming a Cutter ability hat. As a helper, Sir Kibble gains access to all of Cutter Kirby's moves, and also gains access to the coveted Infinity Jump, but he has less overall stamina than the pink puffball.

Sir Kibble also has his own slot in the sub-game Helper to Hero.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Sir Kibble appears as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl:

Image Description
SSBB Sir Kibble Trophy.png "An armor-clad foe. Sir Kibble grips the blade on his head between his hands before launching it at Kirby. By inhaling Sir Kibble, Kirby can copy his Cutter ability to throw boomerang-like blades. At close range, Sir Kibble can use his cutter like a sword for a direct attack."

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U[edit]

Sir Kibble appears as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U:

Image American English Description British English Description
SirKibbleTrophyWiiU.png "Wearing a suit of armor that looks like a helmet (or is it a helmet that looks like a suit of armor?), little, round Sir Kibble doesn't seem all that different from Kirby in stature. But if you peer under his visor hoping to catch a glimpse of a pair of cute little eyes, you might be unnerved to find nothing but a dark void..." "Wearing a suit of armour that looks like a helmet (or is it a helmet that looks like a suit of armour?), little round Sir Kibble doesn't seem all that different from Kirby in stature. But if you peer under his visor, hoping to catch a glimpse of a pair of cute little eyes, you might be unnerved to find nothing but an empty blackness... "

Trivia[edit]

  • Sir Kibble is one of the few enemies in the series who has appeared in every single main series Kirby game, but has not appeared in any of the standalone spinoffs outside of cameos and references.
  • His trophy description hints that Sir Kibble might be just his armor, and nothing inside.
