Kirby's species is, as it's name suggests, Kirby's species. They are commonly known as "Puffballs","Star Warriors" (Though this is due to the species making up the bulk of the Star Warrior army), "Pink Puffs" and simply, "Kirbies" or “Kirbians”.


Kirby's species is known for it's round "puffy" body, which is mostly fat. They are surprisingly maliable, and are very resilient. They are able to withstand extreme temperatures with little ill effect, and they are able to "absorb", or "copy" most attacks. They appear to have no skeletal structure, shown by Kirby's movements when hitting a wall or falling from certain height. The species also appears to lack teeth.

Despite their common name "Pink Puff", not all of Kirby's species are pink, and in fact most tend to be other colors, such as purple, gray, red, yellow, green and blue. All colors have blushing cheeks, however, and small stubby hands. They posess thick, boot-like feet, which are believed to be an adaptation to traveling and exploring, as this is a favorite hobby of many of Kirby's species.

Some of Kirby's species, including Kirby himself, have shown to posses an amazing ability where they can "inhale" an enemy, and they can use it's weapons or even copy it's DNA signature.

Even though Kirby's species has extra-long longevity, their mental maturing process takes about 10 times longer than their physical maturing.


Kirby's species seem to be omnivorous. They can eat anything up to, or even larger than, their size, and they usually eat it whole or they can also eat things a bit bigger than them such as defeated Mini-Bosses, super inhale blocks and even Pactos . They're also able to eat many things other creatures are unable to eat, such as rotten food, silverware, bombs, etc. without ill effect. Scientists believe they have a special bacteria that helps them do this, but there is no proof of this.
