30 Day Kirby Challenge - 14 - Kibble Blade by CelestiaDragonKnight 30 Day Kirby Challenge - 14 - Kibble Blade by CelestiaDragonKnight
Day 14 - Mid-Boss

Still waiting for that hero to show up...

As far as mid-bosses go, let's just say I have a lot of favourites; Gigant Edge, the Sphere Doomers, all the different kinds of Galboros, Kracko, I could name all of them and I would've drawn all of them if I had the time to! But alas, I had to take a decision (which I am terrible at doing) and went with Kibble Blade, a boss that I have possibly never seen drawn on this site before (if you know a drawing of it please link it to me I love these guys).

At first I wanted to make a fancy pose all action and stuff but then I just doodled one of them sitting down and I began to imagine what it would be like for them if Kirby never showed up. These enemies look like they're just there waiting for the main character, but what do they do in the meantime? They wait I guess, but if the hero doesn't show up, it might take a while.

Also, birbs.

Hope you like this one!

It's kinda painful to look at, for me. Poor Kibble...
     Also considering the fact that Sir Kibble Blade is one of Meta Knight's followers makes it hard, because this implies that Meta Knight doesn't check on him either. No one visits these guys unless it's to fight them, so they either wait for the 'hero' or die in battle. There's no social life, no family, no friends, only battle. It, makes me sad...
     Another sad thought is that, this picture kinda looks like a post-battle image. Like he was defeated, but instead of inhaling him to get the Cutter ability Kaabii just left him there to die on his own time. Only he didn't die, but he was also too injured to move, so he just sat there waiting for the end, alone and in pain as nature began to slowly overtake his armor with him trapped inside.
     
     I don't know which of these ideas is more sad, Sir Kibble waiting for Kaabii, or Sir Kibble waiting for death. Either way this picture has feels of the not so pleasant kind.

Wow, that's a rather darker take on that picture, I didn't think of it that way. I think I prefer to think of Kibble just waiting for Kirby to show up instead of just waiting to die slowly, it's a bit less bleak. xD

Either way you look at it that's what's happening. His armor is rusting and there are plants growing on him, at the rate it's going he won't be able to move by the time Kaabii shows up, so what's gonna happen?

(Sorry for the grim outlook, I tend to put stories behind the pictures I see and make. You made Kibble look like the remains of armor you might find in an ancient battlefield, so I couldn't help seeing it that way...)

Lol, it's no problem, it's cool that you see stories like these just looking at a picture! I did make it seem that way, so I shouldn't be surprised. xD

I'm completely agree, Kibble blade needs more attention, he's pretty cool to be so ignored !

Also, I love the moss covering parts of his armor !

Thanks! :D I figured if he was waiting there for a long time the elements just had to take over eventually, hence the rust and the moss.

You're welcome n.n! I imagine Kibble Blade would be like "Hm....I think he isn't going to come and if I stay here too much my armor would start getting rusty....meh..."

When I first played Kirby's Return to Dream Land, I thought Kibble Blade was the first mid-boss to give the Cutter ability but when I got Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition for Christmas in 2012, I found out that he's actually the second mid-boss to do so as the first one was Waiu, from Kirby's Dream Land 2.

Well, I just learned something today! xD I never played the Kirby's Dream Land games so I wouldn't know what mid-bosses were in it. Waiu looks so cute! :D

You should play them, they're a lot of fun. Kirby's Dream Land was my very first video game that I ever got and it's still one of my favorites to this day. He does but he's a pain to fight though. :XD:

I heard they were very good, I saw Kirby's Dream Land 3 being played at Awesome Games Done Quick this year and it looked very fun!

I may just have the mind of a five-year-old but whenever I see the word Sir Kibble or Kibble Blade, I immediately think of that cat kibble or whatever it is... He must have been waiting there a long time for rust and moss to grow on him.
