  • One Japanese guidebook for Kirby's Dream Land 2 claimed Dark Matter suffered from loneliness and attacked Popstar because it was jealous of all the "happiness" there. Many fans accepts this as official canon.
  • Meta Knight being like a father-figure to Kirby. The Japanese fandom have their own term for the headcanon, パパナイト, which literally translates to "Papa Knight".
  • Ado and Adeleine are two different characters, with Ado being male. Unless you think that "Ado" is merely how Kirby pronounces Adeleine's name (as the latter's name is pronounced "Adorinu" in Japanese). The idea of Ado being male was eventually jossed in a 20th-anniversary booklet, which confirmed that Ado's a girl.
  • Bandana Waddle Dee appears in Kirby 64, minus the blue bandana.
