Having a hard time finding nice Kirby gameplay in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? Well do not fear, the Kirby Theater is here! Whether it's tech, tutorials, tournament gameplay, or your own Kirby gameplay, this is the place to share and discuss it! As long as it's about the D'Kirb it's good! And knowing how it can be tricky to find, I've personally already gone out of my way to get a Youtube playlist with a lot of great Kirby footage. Check it out here:
I've also created a Dailymotion video playlist for good Kirby gameplay that can't be uploaded to Youtube. Check that out with this link:
And I'll be updating both of these playlists frequently so be sure to always check in! There's also good streams you can follow for Kirby content too.
Probably one of the most prominent Kirby streamers atm, we have Vernias! : https://www.twitch.tv/vernias_
He's probably the most active Kirby streamer out there atm and is pretty smoking with the Kirb. Give him a follow for sure!
Consider watching SuperGirlKels Twitch here: https://www.twitch.tv/supergirlkels/videos
She often uses Kirby on here streams and can be rather clean with him. Be sure to check her Twitter to know when she'll be streaming.
Another good Twitch channel to follow is JuggleBoy's here: https://Twitch.tv/juggle_boy
He made a handy competitive tutorial for Kirby in Ultimate streams Elite with him. Be sure to check him out too!
Then we got RK, a big contributor in the Kirby community: https://www.twitch.tv/tng_rk
Notable Kirby player from MD/VA who's quick active on boards gives a lot of good insight.
Also consider Guapo's stream: https://www.twitch.tv/guapo__0/videos
Streams a lot of fun and interesting Kirby gameplay.
For a cool, up and coming Kirby streamer, give GreenCord a check out!: https://twitch.tv/greenchord

There's cool Kirby streaming name to be looking at is KitsuShadow A.K.A the Gonzo!: www.twitch.tv/kitsushadow
This dude really helped kickstart Brawl Kirby's meta back in the day and helped Chudat become the success he was and is now back to help take Ultimate Kirby far! Definitely someone to watch over time!
Another one of our cool Kirby streamers is BlazerKirbeh!: https://www.twitch.tv/blazerkirby
Also a pretty frequent streamer with fun content so be sure to check him out as well!
(UPDATE: Sadly he's currently at the Air Force.)
Recommended YouTube Channels:
First starters, we have my Kirby Smash Ultimate Competitive Vids: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyaNmh14dOBCXdinTxsDB4w
A lot of good Kirby gameplay gets streamed but sadly isn't put on Youtube. Thus I made this channel on a spare account to help players get their gameplay into a place that'll last as Twitch streams usually expire in 2 weeks.
Next up, we have the kirbypwndyou: https://www.youtube.com/user/kirbypwnedyou/videos
This channel is owned by Kirby Discord owner SK and he occasionally uploads gameplay and helpful vids. Check it out for sure.
Moving on, we have the Youtube channel of one our top Kirby labbers, Phan7om: https://www.youtube.com/user/ItsPrinceMarcus
This guy is a Kirby tech guru. From Ability Combos to Ledge trap techniques, he covers a lot of advanced stuff that can be a boon to your play. Definitely look over his juice.
Another good channel to get key Kirby information is from our good man, juggleboy: https://www.youtube.com/user/pokemonrules9/videos
He creates lots of helpful tutorials to wrap your head around Kirby's meta and the game as whole
Following on is Vernias who maintains a cool Youtube channel as well as Twitch stream: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCilSiavYe9s2XZ66NAbQw3A
The channel has its own share of sweet stuff to watch so browse it if you can
Supergirl Kels is also a channel to consider keeping your eyes on: https://www.youtube.com/user/kelsmed/videos
She's a Sonic main and makes a lot of general fun game content but Kirby is one of her secondaries and she occasionally puts out pretty neat stuff him.
And if you're interested in Japanese Kirby gameplay, Mukyu's channel is one you can check now and then: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8ivGS4hIRROJT3OKarJbTg/featured
He comain's Kirby and does quite of lot clean stuff with him. He has begun streaming via Youtube and sometimes showcases clean stuff with the Kirby so keep an eye on him.
For another strong Japanese Kirby Youtube channel, I'd suggest also watching Tadahan Tada.: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbYWDpOkXX4LL_WhjCkRM_w/videos
His gameplay is pretty sharp and he's even been innovating unique damaging racking and kill setups and testing them out.
