TOME: Kirbopher by Kirbopher15 TOME: Kirbopher by Kirbopher15
Username: Kirbopher
Location: Unknown, US
Class: Swordsman
Power: Enchanted Sword
Special Techniques:
Spin Slash - An aerial cutting attack in which the user spins rapidly into a powerful cut. This technique can be turned into a Shockwave upon finishing.
Ice Knives - A projectile attack where a swarm of sharp icicles spread out from a slash of the user’s weapon.
Dust Tornado - A slow, but forceful projectile attack that can entrap the opponent and allows for a swift follow-up combo.
Shockwave - A powerful attack that travels along the ground and trips up the opponent upon impact.

-THE ORIGINAL-
As the name implies, Kirb is based on myself, of course. When I was originally conceptualizing TOME, I knew ahead of time I wanted Mike (Alpha) to be the “star” of the story. Kirb’s personality was simply an exaggerated version of my own; very spazzy, a bit angry and hungry for what he wants with no patience for small talk. Also, as many are aware, his original design was literally a white Kirby with a green Link cap. This design was not out of originality, but rather the first thing I thought of when coming up with a design based off of screennames, as well as before I discovered video game character “recolors” were the bane of internet existence. In the original series’ storyline, Kirbopher was also obsessed with trying to stop the hackers and was almost the unofficial “leader” of the resistance before Alpha shows up. This time, I went a bit of a different route…

-THE NEW-
Kirbopher’s personality has probably changed the least compared to the original, as evidenced by keeping myself as his voice performer as well. From a design standpoint, I opted for his “imp” design as opposed to the unoriginal albino Kirby he once was. This design was, oddly enough, drawn LONG before the original TTA started, but I was forced to go with the Kirby design mainly due to sprite editing limitations. Several years ago, when I decided to ditch the stigmatic “15” in my name and switch to the new design, I’ll admit at first I wasn’t too enthused. Kirbopher was, for a while, just a placeholder for Chris Frost from BALANCING ACT before I was comfortable with revealing its existence to the world. After some time passed and I had touched up his design to look a bit more tattered (like a trouble-making thief) I grew to like it a whole lot! As far as his role in the story goes, I plan on giving him a lot more development and emotional layers this time around. Surprisingly, part of this was from my choice to not only dis-include him from the resistance against the hackers, but to have him be very uncaring about it. Kirb’s purpose on TOME is to have fun, not to get involved in time-wasting drama. Alpha, who grows to be one of his closest friends, understands and respects that, giving him the attention he craves in the form of constant battles. The two of them have a fun dynamic separate from the main plot involving the hackers and viruses…and that friendship of theirs will soon be jumped through hoops of fire.

Changed the least? But he doesn't care about beating hackers at all! In the original, his first appearance was him rashly going in to stop 'Raccoon' and 'Blingbling' with his JUSTICE!

When I first saw this picture, I had to "Kirb my enthusiasm" and remembered that I have to listen to Whachow!


Hey! Whatever happened to the saucy fanfics that used to be on Whachow?

Kirb is my favorite of the main cast. Don't get me wrong, I like them all, but I love the excitable little devil and I want to see more of him. It helps that he is able to go toe-to-toe with non-Beast Alpha.
And yeah, I am really looking forward to seeing how Kirb reacts to being physically wounded. It seemed like the Forbidden Power attack used on him was on the maximum setting.

I like Kirbopher's new look, i remember i use to watch every single one of your flash movies on newgrounds. You had a really good series strong storyline, character development, hero suffering, and you even manage making playing a virtal reality game be all dark I loved it every now and then I watch my fav episodes. But you did a really great job on the series.

Kirb, I love your stuff, but i don't know how I feel about making your character so indifferent. i saw the first episode (awesome by the way) and i hope his personality changes over time. BTW what's gonna happen to all the secondary characters like whitequeen, saturngirl, sniperwave, and rob*?

Well, I for one am glad to see this design used outside of any sort of avatar. Now that you mention it, he DOESN'T really care too much about the whole 'resistance' thing this time around, do he?

Shame that I figure he's gonna end up being dragged in anyway, BUT! 'EY
