End of spoilers

In Kirby: Right Back At Ya!

Meta-Knight appear at the very first episode. In the show, there were many things that didn't appear in the actual games like for example:

  • His eyes change according to his mood. When he is proud, his eyes turn blue, as seen in Here Comes the Son. When Meta Knight's eyes are supposedly closed, his eyes turn dark orange, and when he is angry, his eyes turn red, as seen in the episode Scare Tactics - Part I and his eyes turn a shimmering green when he is suspicious or problem solving, as seen in Escargoon Squad. If he is totally serious about something, his eyes turn grass green, like seen in A Blockbuster Battle. When his eyes are pink, he is amused, shown in Snack Attack - Part I. He is extremely stealthy, observant or well-informed, since no one ever sees him unless he speaks or shows himself, and he knows the events happening around him well enough. He knows every single one of Kirby's abilities, though he was a little unsure about Mike, but still guessed correctly. It took him a while to figure out Throw, but when Kirby started throwing Whippy he was easily able to identify it.
  • He knows every single Copy Ability Kirby haves, but he guess what the Mike ability does and know the Throw ability when Kirby started throwing things.
  • He also may have a sweet tooth, as he has a jar of candy in his bedroom, and seems to like tea as well, as seen in the episode "Escar-Gone".
  • characteristically, he likes watching Channel DDD, although whether it is because it amuses him somewhat or whether it is to try and catch out Dedede's scheming early is unknown.
  • Meta Knight is voiced by Atsushi Kisaichi in the Japanese version of the anime, and speaks with a smattering of random English words in his Japanese. He is voiced by Eric Stuart in the English dub for 4Kids. In the dub, Meta Knight speaks with a Spanish accent, possibly as a reference to Zorro.

Metaknight 071115a

Suck them up!

Side Special:Drill Rush

You spin like a drill, plowing into people. You can also change your direction slightly.

Up Special:Shuttle Loop

This is a move you use to glide. It’s kind of like Kirby’s wing ability.

Down Special:Dimesional Cape

He wraps himself in his cape, disappears, and reappears with this move.

Use the Dimensional Cape as a precursor to an attack. If you just can’t get the opportunity, then forget about attacking.

He is fought before King Dedede. The conversation between Kirby and him is downwards: Meta Knight acts as the penultimate challenger in the game. His dialogue with Kirby goes as follows:

None shall pass! En garde, Kirby!
— Meta Knight
But I have no Sword!?!
— Kirby
Oh, you're so right... Then Avalanche it is, ha ha ha ha!!
— Meta Knight


  • In his debut game, his name was clearly unknown.
  • Meta Knight doesn't have his sword at all times.
    • Like in Kirby Epic Yarn, he never uses his sword
      • Heck, it wasn't even seen.
        • The sword(s) he used were created by Yin-Yan.
