Kirby Parfait by Ktullanyx

Kirby Parfait


You know what my first game was? Kirby’s Dream Land 3 for the SNES. I was four-years old at the time.

I can’t remember my childhood all that well, but, I do remember how much I loved playing this game, albeit I was totally unable to get all the stars in each level. I still kept playing the game over and over, trying to achieve this feat but to no avail. I ended up giving my SNES and all my games to my poorer relatives that didn’t have video games, and hoped that they would enjoy Kirby as much as I did. It was quite hard parting with it since I never did get to complete it.

As I got older, I figured I’d revisit the game. Now more aware of how to complete the little scenarios in each level, I managed to collect all of the stars, defeat possessed Dedede, and fight Dark Matter. Because I hadn’t gotten all the stars prior, battling Dark Matter was a whole new experience for me.

I was so happy to overcome Dark Matter, but my happiness suddenly turned into shock when Zero came up! I was totally not expecting this at all. It was so… gruesome. I never knew the very first game I ever played had such a terrifying thing in it, and I guess I have to thank my puny child-like brain for not being able to come across this thing, because I would’ve been scarred.

When I beat Zero I felt like I accomplished a long-term goal. I finally finished the very first game I ever played in my life, fourteen years later.

I love Kirby so much, and I couldn’t be more than grateful to have such an endearing and adorable character be a part of my life. Apparently Mr. Iwata didn’t produce Kirby’s Dream Land 3 like he had for the previous games in the Dream Land series, but without him co-creating Kirby with Mr. Sakurai in the first place, I just, wouldn’t be the same.

Kirby is the true definition of happiness, I feel. Thank you so much for that happiness, Mr. Iwata. May you rest in peace.

    Without Mr. Iwata and Kirby your life, my life, and the lives of many others wouldn't be the same. I'm gonna miss him forever.
