Kirby knight of the old code can be put as a neoclassical knights tale only that the characters are made up of video game characters from kirby, pokemon, dead or alive, and others, many of the issues in our modern world will also be addressed in the story, from honor (or lack of) war, political corruption, conspiracy, morality in the form of (why every man for himself?) And many others, however the story is not only about these issues is also the story of three main characters Kirby from the Kirby video games
Max the main avatar from Animal Crossing
and Helena from Dead or alive
Kirby however is the head protagonist in the story he is a character that inspires others from words of wisdom and he's galent demeanor, in one part were battle is inevitable he says when this is all over at least we'll have a chance to rebuild! Meaning that after evil has lost there could be a chance to build a better tomorrow for every one, even though Kirby is called on when all else has failed he is disliked by many for his old outdated views that have no place in our modern world. However being brave and honorable Kirby serves and protect the innocent without question, he often depicts the side of us that wishes to do good in all matters, in the beginning of the story he is patroling the area of King Dedede's kingdom in search of new and diabolical weapons rumored to be on the loose by orders of the king, as the story progresses he finds himself in a darkened web of conspiracy and murder for hire, now he is one of the last hopes for the area of the kingdom and freedom of its people he must delve into the darkness and oppose the evil might of the king!
The character Max however is different he is more inclined to seeing things as they truly are. (as some would put it) The dark and jaded a world where it's every man for himself and those with the most and biggest toys wins, his views are set in contrary to Kirby's to bring balance in the story as well as inspirational clash of ideals between the characters, however it is never confrontation only opposites in opinion and is only used to define the contrast in morality from today's world in comparison to times gone by, throughout most of the story Max's background is kept in the dark for the most part is later revealed he's true pass in what he seeks as the story progresses, it is also interesting to note that the story is told through the eyes of Max is if you were reading his accounts of the events that occur in the story similarly to the style of the Max Payne video games.
Helena is the sad heroine in the story with a painful past seeking justice and vengeance for crimes committed against her, she sets out originally to do just this however not long after seting out to do just this she is hired out by king Dedede who falsely gives her leads about where to find the criminal she was looking for, accusing Kirby of knowing his location or perhaps even being the individual who did it, with that she sets out to find Kirby and does so in short order, however not long after finding Kirby who at the time was aiding and resistance cell is convinced to join them after seeing much evidence that King Dedede is in fact responsible for a diabolical conspiracy against the people of the area as well as the entire planet! In time the story she begins to get closer to Kirby, even to the point of loving Kirby, this also ties in to the classical romantic element in most stories involving knights and adds to the neoclassical feel, even though not all of her background is divulged in knight of the old code many of the elements are as well as strong support and character growth and wisdom much of which is learned from her time with Kirby in many ways she was the character who is seeking something somewhat like Max, in through the attentiveness of Kirby and the others she manages to let go of much of her pain from the past, however is also interesting to note that at times she manages to support Kirby as well in his difficult trial throughout the story.
thank you for reading part one of Kirby knight of the old code inside the story more will be coming next week! next time it will be about the bad guys!
