You see, this here machine is my fancy new Kirby Printer. It spits out Kirby copies, good as the original. Maybe better.

Kirby Printer is an object in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby Battle Royale.

Physical Appearance

The Kirby Printer is a barrel-shaped machine featuring a King Dedede-centric color scheme. It sports a crank with gears, an orange chimney, and wheels below it. When cranked, it will glow a series of colors all over for a few moments before releasing a Kirby copy from its middle, triangle-shaped section.


Kirby Battle Royale

The Kirby Printer appears in the story mode of Kirby Battle Royale, The Cake Royale. It is a machine that, when cranked, produces copies of Kirby of various colors and with various Copy Abilities. The faster it is cranked, judging by what King Dedede says, the more powerful the Kirby that is generated will be.

Created by King Dedede for his Cake Royale, it is first encountered by Kirby and Bandana Waddle Dee in the intro to the Beginner's League. It is seen in multiple cutscenes thereafter, as King Dedede presses a Waddle Dee to make stronger copies in his throne room as the original Kirby continues to win contests.

The Kirby Printer is used by King Dedede in the final battle in the Cake Royale against Dededestroyer Z, where it generates opponents for Kirby while the boss attacks. When Dededestroyer Z is defeated, the printer falls into the main plaza and explodes, causing all Kirby copies to disappear.
