Allies are anyone who has helped Kirby before. Some allies have redeemed themselves and become good after their evil deeds, while others have been friendly to begin with. Some allies are also playable in various games.
Buster is the tenant in Apartment 301 in Dom Woole's apartment building in Quilty Square of Patch Land in Kirby's Epic Yarn. He offers minigames where Kirby has to defeat a certain number of enemies before time runs out, after Kirby decorates his room with the appropriate furniture obtained from the various Treasure chests in the game. Like all the other tenants, he sometimes visits Kirby in Kirby's Pad, and he offers a secret fabric after all his minigames and the main story has been completed.
Villains are plot-centric characters who go against Kirby. Most villains don’t have any reasoning for their actions other than being evil, while others are given sometimes tragic backstories as to why they act this way.
Nightmare's operations are funded by his sales team including N.M.E. Sales Guy, his No.2 and right-hand man, who makes Nightmare Enterprises a hefty profit from selling Monsters to clients for their own needs.
Most of the time, enemies in the Kirby series refer to regular enemies. These are any common characters hostile towards Kirby and have less-than-significant role in the plot.
Lovely is an enemy in the series with an uncharacteristically friendly appearance. She is one of the more difficult enemies to take down, sometimes being mounted to the ceiling, and attacks whenever Kirby gets close and gives no Copy Ability. Lovely is featured in the episode The Flower Plot of Kirby: Right Back at Ya!.
The Kirby series is not known for its complicated characters, but there are special ones just the same. These are characters who defy classification into straight hero or villain, and can neither be enemy nor friend to Kirby, or appear to be one or the other.
The greedy, lazy, self-proclaimed king of Dream Land. He is Kirby’s arch-rival, leading some to believe that he is the main antagonist of the series. While he does have his fair share of evil deeds, King Dedede actually truly cares for Kirby, and has even helped him on some occasions where he knows the main villains are a threat. Most of the fights he had with Kirby were either misunderstandings or times when he was taken control of, however, some fights and actions were on his own accord, such as when he stole all of the food in Dream Land.
A solitary character and one of few words, he can be friend or foe depending on what he seeks. His plans are as unpredictable as his appearances on the battlefield, which presents a powerful force to be reckoned with. Add in the fact that he zealously guards his true looks and his code of honour, Meta Knight is the character of intrigue that everyone has come to know.
