"First you draw a circle, then you dot the eyes, add a great big smile, and presto, it's Kirby!"
- Introduction to Kirby's Adventure

Kirby is a video game character first released by Nintendo in 1992. In the time since, "Kirby has been battling baddies across dozens of games."

The iconic Kirby lives on planet Pop Star. He has the ability to inhale objects into his large mouth, adopting their abilities. He can absorb enemies in the same way! Kirby is only 8 inches (20 centimeters) tall, and he has no bones or teeth. He can expand like a balloon, flatten himself, or stretch. His weight is unknown, but he is light enough to be carried easily by other characters.

Did you know? No one knows exactly where Kirby got his name. He was originally called Popopo; at that time, he was a placeholder character rather than the star. The name "Kirby" could have been adopted from Kirby brand vacuum cleaners, because of the character's ability to inhale objects. Or, he could have been named after Nintendo's legal counsel.

Would you like to draw a cartoon of Kirby? He is very easy to draw, and this cartoon drawing tutorial will show you how. Then, you can expand your skills to other video game characters, like Link and Princess Zelda from The Legend of Zelda, or Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Bowser, and Princess Peach from the Super Mario Bros. franchise.
