The Star Warriors are characters appearing in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. They are a group of strong warriors who were said to have battled Nightmare in a war thousands of years before the events of the anime. However, the Monsters outnumbered them, killing most. A few Star Warriors remained, including Meta Knight, one of the strongest Star Warriors in the universe. Kirby was intended to be a part of a new generation of Star Warriors; however he was awakened early, and landed in Dream Land.
