"Kirby (Kirby) – 147pt"

What's with Nintendo Dream readers and their excessive love for Kirby?!?! I don't see the appeal of him being that high, he's just round and pink! There're other characters from the franchise that are more memorable or do cooler things... Kirby's just cute and he exists.

Kirby is very big in Japan, not just among Nintendo Dream readers.
Gaming retailers there are full of Kirby stuff (goodies, accessories etc.), sometimes even more than Pokémon or Splatoon.

Not sure how it is now, but when I lived in Japan, Nintendo Dream was a "girl" magazine, so i imagine the people who write in skews heavily female still, and Kirby is very popular among females in Japan.

I mean, I guess? But I'm just surprised they don't find Waddle Dee cuter. He's literally perfectly adorable

Kirby is literally a placeholder. I’ve never understood the appeal either.

Haven't you seen the amount of votes from Nintendo Dream? Kirby has always been number one in that vote.

But I agree that its very exaggerated. I mean they vote for wanted characters to play as Luigi and yet Kirby is their favorite character?

Seems like Kirby is Nintendo's Hello Kitty.

Kirby is Awesome his games are awesome too.
