100% True Video Game Facts, Vol. I



The name of the character Kirby is actually a corruption of the original Japanese カービイ (kaabii). This more properly translates into “Curvy,” which we all know is just a euphemism because Japanese society is too polite to call him “fat.”

Someone should add this valuable information to Wikipedia. Go on, do it. Be a hero.

  1. That’s not true, when this 215 lb gaijin was in Japan, I had no shortage of people calling me “large man!” So then “Kirby” is just coincidentally connected to the famous vacuum?

  2. “Varia” sounds similar to “Barrier” to a Japanese person. Varia sounds a lot more exotic than Barrier though.
