Kirby is a character created by HAL Laboratory and owned by Nintendo, the publisher of The Legendary Starfy series. First appearing in Kirby's Dream Land, he is the savior of Dream Land who uses his trademark ability to inhale enemies and gain their abilities to use in saving the world, whether it be from Dark Matter, Nightmare, or another major antagonist.
Since this Game and Starfy's unveiling outside of Japan a year later, the two characters have been easily compared by fans and critics alike for their similarities in both appearance and personality, and their series' styles of gameplay.
