Kirby is the titular pink puff and main protagonist of the Kirby series of video games named after him. The series has been running for over two decades, and nearly thirty titles have been released under Kirby's name, most of which are developed by HAL Laboratory, Inc. or published by HAL for co-developing studios.
Kirby has been featured in his own anime series, many manga publications in several countries, and even an educational video co-starring Mario. The Kirby series is frequently merchandised by Nintendo, although most of its products are only released in Japan.
Kirby lives in his dome-shaped home in Dream Land, a country on his home planet Planet Popstar. His adventures take him throughout Dream Land and occasionally into local star systems for various reasons, and he has saved his homeland many times.

Kirby's strongest items. For the most part, they're received only at the end of the game, to fight the boss, and are usually mandatory. They are solely used at that point. Note that Super Abilities are Final Weapons (mostly Ultra Sword), but there are definitely enough for it to not be put in here.
Kirby's final weapon in Planet Robobot,used to take out Star Dream. Kirby uses the Robobot Armor to take over the Halberd. He has access to the Combo Cannon, Capture Inhale, the Sail Wing, and the Planet Buster. The Combo Cannon fires locked-on shots. Capture Inhale absorbs debris to power up the Halberd for the Planet Buster. The Sail Wing allows Kirby to do a barrel roll from the Starfox series, deflecting attacks. The strongest move of his is the Planet Buster, which is much more powerful than a Planet Buster. Kirby fires a cluster of powerful stars that do more damage depending on how much was Capture Inhaled.
Kirby's sorta Final Weapon in Triple Deluxe, used to take out Queen Sectonia. Kirby eats a Miracle Fruit, which gives him this ability. Kirby's inhale is increased dramatically, allowing him to swallow anything (it distorts things that are much bigger than him to fit in). Kirby can reflect attacks without the star transformation, and those swallowed by it don't get put into his stomach dimension. They're instantly deleted.
Kirby's "Final Weapon" in Return to Dream Land, used to take out the Lor Starcutter under Magolor's control. and his friends ride on Landia the dragon, when it's split into four. He can fire charged up fire bolts and can dash forward and back invincibly.
Kirby's Final Weapon in Dream Land 3 and Star Stacker to take out Dark Matter, 0, and Gryll (though the latter one has no stakes). Kirby turns all of the Heart Stars into a rod with a heart on top. The rod can fire a powerful energy shot shaped like a heart.
Kirby's Final Weapon in Amazing Mirror, used to take out Dark Mind, and one of the only optional ones. Kirby wields Meta Knight's Galaxia (called the Master Sword back then) sword. Kirby has all the normal sword attacks (though buffed up considerably), but his Sword Beam is stronger, wider, and doesn't force him to be at full health, and his Drill Rush is absurdly stronger, does fire damage, and can be used in midair.
Kirby's Final Weapon in Dream Land 2, used to take out Dark Matter the first time. It is formed by fusing all of the Rainbow Drops. The sword works as a normal powerful sword, but it's best used for reflecting projectiles for major damage. It can also create rainbows, hence its name.
Kirby's Final Weapon in The Crystal Shards, used to take out Zero-Two. It's technically a Mix ability of Ribbon and Crystal. It's is the combination of all of the Crytal Shards into the original Crystal being used as a weapon, and Kirby is being carried and flown by his love interest Ribbon. The two of them fire crystal shots.
Kirby's most iconic Final Weapon. The Star Rod is the source of all of Dream Land's good dreams, and is now a weapon for Kirby. It's used in Kirby's Adventure and its Remake Nightmare in Dream Land. It is used to take out Nightmare. Kirby can fire powerful, evil-killing star shots and spin around midair with the rod extended. In the anime, it can be formed through inhaling the War Star.
Kirby's Final Weapon in Super Star. It is used to take out NOVA on the way to Marx, as well as Kabula. It is formed either through the Dream Fountains or the Sparkling Stars. It is basically a flying Roman Chariot that fires stars in front of it, and "barriers" diagonally.
Kirby's Final Weapon in Squeak Squad, and the only other optional one, used to take out Dark Nebula. It is received from Daroach after he drops it after his possession. Kirby is protected by three orbiting stars, and fires a powerful star shot similar to the Star Rod, but faster. The shot can be aimed, and guided after it's fired.
