In a way, this is an original idea ; my own story idea tend to revolve more about either Nightmare having been secretely a front for Zero or having Zero be an 'outside force' worse than Nightmare who attempt to take over as the purer embodiment of darkness.


Of course, the main problem here is a bit due to the source material ; Nightmare is actually kind of dumb and weak as far as ultimate evils go. Likewise, the Demon Beasts are not very impressive. Apart from immortality, Nightmare is really nothing special and this cause a problem. Namely, Zero is *far* smarter and a lot more ruthless, with her Dark Matter minions being overall far more twisted and powerful. It may feel a bit weird to see a villain whose strategy for *97 episodes straight* was 'send one monster at a time, then send a single monster alone again when the last one get blown up' suddenly turned into a villain whose plans are notably more complex and tend to have 'disable/cripple Kirby so he can't stop my plans this time' as step #1.


Then there is the fact that anime Kirby is... kind of underpowered and a baby. Zero is a villain whose plans require one to be smart to foil them and who also require a LOT of power and determination to foil (anime!Kirby lacking the later to the point of *falling alseep mid-battle*...). Simply put? The most likely scenario is that Zero and her minions will run circles around the anime cast.


So... very interesting idea. But I'm wondering how you plan for this to go.

I'll be following this.

It's alright.

Hope you found my comment interesting.

(I'm also writing my own Kirby fanfic that is post-anime storyline. That one is in story form and not on DeviantArt though ; it's called "Honor the Past". Don't know if you've heard of it...)

The best panel here was when you introduced Kirby.
Nice work!

My guess was that Nightmare was actually a less pure form of darkness and was actually truly weaker and dumber because of this.

Nightmare is 'merely' the embodiment of fear. That is a deep form of darkness but in cosmic terms, that is actually pretty lightweight.

By contrast, Zero is pure, absolute darkness. She embody the primordial emptiness that existed before existence and will exist after reality ends ; AKA the original, true form of Darkness. That is a far deeper and far more cosmic form of darkness than Nightmare.

Notably, Nightmare only exist as long as fear exist. Zero is eternal and intemporal ; she saw the universe be born, she will see it die. Even Nightmare is theorically a speck of dust to her.


(my main guess is that in a way, Nightmare is a 'lesser evil' ; he may be terrible by the anime's standarts but having him be reborn constantly is a small price for making it impossible for Zero to incarnate herself and mess with the setting. By destroying Nightmare outside of the prophecized time and potentially screwing up the balance, I guess that Kirby created a 'gap' that may allow Zero through...)

Well, it's more just me theorizing and what not. I love to come up with crazy theories and ideas. Both for fun and because, who knows, maybe to give inspiration (more inspiration is always good).

I'm glad you find my ideas good.
