Kirby is both incredibly simple and incredibly powerful. Brian David Gilbert doesn't believe that's possible. After months of research, he has unraveled the truth.

Kirby doesn't represent capitalism, Kirby represents CAPITAL itself. Dead labour, forever assimilating living labour to reproduce and enlarge itself. Capital has infinite power in that sense

The whole premise of this descent into madness is that intelligence = power. It assumes an intelligent creator that cares about its creations and that gods are not idiot babies that can shape the matter of the universe to their will regardless of their understanding of it.

Also his canonical species is star warrior, Meta knight and Galacta Knight are ones to. And, why this one may be from the anime, he is 2,000 years old. A 2 year old for his species. My reason for believing the anime. I BELIEVE IN ANIME!!!

listening to this, to how kirby means nothing i realize, YES, KURBY HAS A MEANING! HE IS, IN FACT, A METAPHORE! he is a metaphore of knowlage! knowlage is, at first, simple. 1+1=2. easy! its friendly, more you know, easier your life become! but knowlage always wants more, every knowlage you have become with a lot of question with it, that you investigate, naturally, like by instinct! but never ends! ALWAYS came with more and more question. one point you even remember where, or why, started. we don't remember how or why we became interest in fictional character. why am i, 33 years old, lawyer, specialized in public management, watching the origins of kurby? i never even playied kurby! but i want to know. i'm watching a video of a character i dont even care about, in a language thats is not my first, becouse... i don't know. but i'm! but knowlage have infinite power. everything is knowlage. knowlage its the medicine and the atomic bomb. knowlage is the how to do free healthcare and how to steal money of sick people. and there is always more knowlage, always more to know and with it always more power. if knowlage is power, power is knowlage. knowlage can create everything, or consume everything. and there is the enemy of knowlage. anti vaxxers, flat earthers, fascist, people who say "why are you interested in that? its just a video game", americans...

I mean there's also the dark matter angle and how Kirby is probably a being of dark matter born from positive emotions instead of negative ones

Personal theory. Kirby is just a dark matter being like gooby or dark matter himself from kirby64. He's just a defective one that does good in the world by his own accord instead of trying to destroy everything. It'd also explain why he looks so much like all the dark matter creatures we see in the series. Though I don't play much kirby so if there's proof to debunk this just tell me

My head cannon is that Kirby was summoned in a satanic ritual and then he appeared and nobody gave a shit about him because of his cuddliness so they just dumped him on a random planet. He then proceeded to kill everything else they summoned. They then tried to summon Kirby again but failed and ended creating Metaknight who was much more intelligent however very strong compare to kirby’s infinite power so they dumped him off on the same planet and he started working for Deedeedee. There’s no evidence for this but until I’m proven wrong this is what happened for me.

The reason Kirby only cares about those things is because he (he?) has become so hyper-intelligent that his knowledge is simply too much to comprehend, and every time we get close our brains shut down out of pure fear.

You know, maybe Kirby is like Azatoth: A cosmic entity of infinite power that is the most dumb thing in existance. Maybe all of his adventures in the games are the machinations of another, more inteligent God, that knows the power of Kirby must be hidden.
