Stop to think about it long enough, and it’s hard to avoid reaching the conclusion that Kirby is an eldritch nightmare the likes of which H.P Lovecraft would have been proud. Possessed as he is of a voracious appetite and a seemingly endless maw, he inhales all those who stand in the way and takes their very essence for his own. He’s the quintessential soul eater.
The only thing that’s ever passed Kirby’s lips and given him pause, in fact, is the super spicy curry, an in-game item that makes him spew fireballs across the screen. While I can’t lay claim to having consumed anyone’s soul recently, I did at least give a recipe for the super spicy curry a whirl. You can see how I got on in the video below and, if you feel like whipping up a batch yourself, the recipe is posted below that.
