Favorite Kirby Game: Kirby's Return to Dream Land
Kirby games have always had some pretty dark themes under its happy tone. But do you think there should be a game that is much darker as a whole. My idea of such a game is one where there is a emphasis on Kirby's character development. They would be a new enemy that throughout the game does horrible things right before kirby's eyes, as a way to destroy him mentally. This would make Kirby angrier and angrier at the enemy as he progresses. Midway through the game, there would be a faux final battle (a la Kid Icarus Uprising) where the bad guy actually wins by turning Kirby's anger against him. After seemingly losing everything, something would make Kirby stand back up to save Popstar once again. After progressing through some more levels, Kirby would be able to defeat the enemy again. The game would end will Kirby regaining his innocence in a well-deserved happy ending.

What do you guys think?

Maybe. But NOT TOO MUCH darker and edgier (like Shadow the Hedgehog).
If it's in the same level Majora's Mask was to Ocarina of Time, then I guess it's a good idea.
Kirby already has been through some character development through the years.
His relationship with King Dedede and Meta Knight in more recent games is a good example of that.
Of course, Kirby still doubts Dedede's intentions as seem in Squeak Squad. He is his main rival, after all.
But since Adventure, he has saw Dedede's good side and helps him sometimes.
Meta Knight is so obviously not evil, Kirby doesn't even bother anymore.
But I'm getting of topic... Yeah, a darker and edgier Kirby game would be nice (if done right).
Even Planet Robobot had a darker tone to it, so I guess it's a good direction.

No. Especially not in the way you described such a game. Kirby being cheerful is an iconic part of his character, and I believe you can't just change something iconic without a ulterior motive.

Being light and soft is a part of the series charm. Play, uh, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, for example. The plot's nigh nonexistent, but the clay artwork is beautiful, the trophy discriptions are funny, and Elline's Diary's art brings a smile to the face of anyone I show it to. I don't think the game would have been as enjoyable if all of those things weren't in the game so that it could be more dark and edgy. And a lot of the above applies to most other games in the Kirby series. A change in tone just isn't worth it.

There are other series that can be dark and edgy, just not this one.

This would be a good idea to make Kirby not an annoying idiot again. Kirby's personality has been flanderized so much, that this NEEDS to happen.

I think kirby's "darkness" is fine right now
(But then agin I loooove when the darker things are more hidden. The true arena kills me in more ways than one)

Still, Kirby needs to go back to his pre-anime personality.

Pre-anime personality? He's pretty much the same as he's always been. Friendly, Kind, Heroic, Rash.

Nevermind, nobody gets it. Kirby is annoying, and that's that.

Depends on what you mean by "Darker and Edgier".

Should there be a cynical and gritty Kirby game? No. That would be a violation of the series' hopeful and cheerful themes and on those grounds alone should be rejected.

Can Kirby have a fully-developed story with a character arc? Sure, in theory. There's plenty to work with: Meta Knight and his who-knows-how-many secrets, Galacta Knight's identity, the Clockwork Comet series (jeez, Kirby has -lore-, now).

Kirby's always been friendly to spooky and surreal aesthetics, so there's no real problem with a dark and scary aesthetic; Planet Robobot set the standard for general creepiness with its gloomy industrialization and enemy cyborgs (as opposed to the Dark Matter trilogy, which saved all of its hardcore spooky for the finale of each game). Clanky Woods is a terrifying character concept, after decades of Whispy.

hmmm..it may be an interesting direction to go, but when I think of Kirby I always think of some good-natured innocent fun.
Probably not the way to go for this franchise lol

I've had this topic on my mind for a long time now. However, it is just now that I finally got all of my thoughts out on the matter! I made a big post about it on my tumblr here: http://mrgameandpie.tumblr.com/post/179 ... tty-bright

I'm probably gonna submit this for the Fan Thoughts section too. Still, I figure this area will probably be more likely to spark some discussion of the matter since while few people regularly use these forums these days, even fewer people respond to Fan Thoughts at all.
