The anime follows Kirby, a pink, spherical, childlike creature who does not speak coherent words but possesses the ability to take on new magical powers temporarily by sucking up their owners. Kirby crash-lands on a planet called Popstar and quickly befriends two yellow-skinned siblings named Tiff and Tuff and their friends Lololo and Lalala. Over the course of the series, Kirby and his friends fight to bring down evil emperor Nightmare, all the while evading King Dedede and his assistant Escargoon, who try to get rid of Kirby using numerous monsters provided by Nightmare Enterprises. Though largely aimed at a younger crowd, with childlike characters and battle scenes, the series also includes allegorical stories about environmental issues, serious stories, social satire, and other various elements and parodies that can be appreciated by adults.
