About

Everyone Is Dead Except Kirby refers to jokes made about the trailer for the Adventure Mode in the upcoming video game Super Smash Brothers Ultimate which displays every character in the game getting vaporized by mysterious beams of light, save for Kirby, who survives the attack by riding a star.

Origin

On November 1st, 2018, Nintendo streamed the final Nintendo Direct for Super Smash Brothers Ultimate. In the Direct, a cinematic trailer for the game's Adventure Mode called "World of Light" aired. In the trailer, the entire roster appears ready to begin an epic battle when a black hole appears and a villainous entity named Galeem shoots out beams of light which vaporize nearly the entire roster. The lone survivor is Kirby, implying that Kirby will be the starting character in "World of Light" and will have to save other characters on the roster.



Spread

After the trailer aired, jokes about Kirby surviving the devastating attack spread quickly online. Many of these parodied the "Everyone Is Here" announcement from an earlier Nintendo Direct stating all characters from every Smash title would appear in the form of the phrase "Everyone Is Dead (except Kirby)." For example, KnowYourMeme user madara0412 made such a post, gaining over 60 likes (shown below, left). Twitter user @yohosiefgc tweeted the phrase and gained over 1,700 retweets and 4,000 likes (shown below, right).

Others celebrated Kirby as Nintendo's "Ultimate Hero," being the one who survived the apocalyptic attack. For example, Twitter user Aham12 posted a Breaking News Parody starring Kirby, gaining over 30 retweets and 240 likes (shown below, left). User @edualclaiv posted a Tier List parody saying Kirby was "God Tier" and every other character was "Actually Deceased," gaining 3,800 retweets and 8,300 likes (shown below, right). Jokes about Kirby's survival were covered by Dorkly[1] and Comicbook.com.[2]
