I don't know if you were expecting this or not, and I don't know as well if you get it or not!
My bro at first didn't realize that all those kirbies were the XXIs, and I had to explain why the heck they're so different. Maybe you already get why, but if you don't, let me explain!
Marx changed the past, so he didn't throw the clones away right after they were born. But everything before that happened exactly the same, right? So, the clones, when transparent, didn't change at all. The personality they got from Kirby, one of his modes, remained the same. But, of course, since they weren't thrown away, they didn't get the same Abilities. When they were thrown away, they got random Abilities. When they weren't thrown away, they got the Abilities Marx wanted, as Meta said a few pages ago. So, their Abilities, their colors, their names and even their personalities are completely different in this timeline! The only thing they have in common with the XXIs you know is the mode they got from Kirby, making them not 100% different. Oh, and their genders, still 14 boys and 7 girls, and if one is a boy, it will be a boy, no matter what, and vice-versa.
As you may have noticed, Panee is an exception, because he got his Ability, color and the rest of his main personality exactly the same way it happened in the other timeline, because nothing was changed so that said event would change. But, of course, he isn't called Panee here! If Marx didn't throw the clones away, he didn't use the memory-erasing blast, so Meta's deep thoughts aren’t listenable in Portuguese, so Marx never heard that "Pane" and didn't think of calling that white clone "Panee". (You still remember how Marx came up with Panee's name, don't you?)
But then you say "And Zan?". Well, the probability that Marx would chose different Abilities than the ones they had in the timeline you know is very, very high. However, there's still that one small possibility that he may choose that very same enemy that had given the Ability to the kirby in the timeline you know. In other words, Zan's source in this timeline is only one, but it's one of the three from the timeline you know. While very difficult to a coincidence like that to happen, it's possible to happen, and it happened!
But, hey, they're not "Panee" and "Zan" anymore, they got other names! And all those names, from all those kirbies (Except "Xertalque", that is an inside joke that you'll never understand, and it's not really a name, and "Marx Jr.", that you know where it's from and why said kirby has that name), are from people I know IRL, from friends (12 of them, though one is from a friend of my bro), beloved teachers (8 of them) and relatives (only 1... Heh). In the compound names, each name is from a different person. The names are intact, except for one name that I changed to a similar one and I'm not telling you why 'cause I'm evil, even if you think that some are weird.
And, finally, you may be wondering... Who is who? For example, which one is Dana? Their "soul" is the same, meaning that they're the same being, only being very different physically and psychologically! So, here's a table I made to compare the different XXIs! Originally a sketch I started making more than two years ago, here's the final version!

You have no idea how much fun it is to recreate your characters. :D

(I hope that the image in my comment doesn't break the page's layout in any computer. I tested it in my PC and in my iPod and everything was fine in both, so I'm not sure about you, I just hope that everything will be alright. :P )

Well... that happened.

Ohh snap.

Adriano Bernardo seems like a potential traitor.
Panee and Anibal Steve. The only difference is the name difference, though I thought "lolwut?" when I saw the name difference. You did think he did still be called Panee.

@Gigi19972010: If I , or anyone, even you, were like this timeline Marx, the XXIs would probably be called their abilities, because he doesn´t care.
Just saying.

...Helena's line is now my new catchphrase, replacing 'NOWHERE AND EVERYWHERE!'
...You gotta admit, that's a huge victory.
And Marx is more demented than I originally thought, naming Yan Marx Jr. So is everyone gender swapped in this universe, or what?

When I just saw it, I was like, "WOW!" That was a few minutes ago, now I'm like "So many colors!".

And I think your avatar is cool.

And I love the image in your comment.

And I think it would be very fun to recreate your characters. XD :)

EDIT: you are evil???? :o

EDIT AGAIN: you have a Carlos isn't that from big time rush.

This made me speechless.

Oh well, time to memorise all of them again. From abilities to looks to personalities and to colors.

Hang on, by grabbing the time machine, Kirby and Kirsy managed to stay
not-information, so, the time machine must also exist in this dimension, but in a different place.

4 random kirbys doing random stuff

@Omega Kirby: Good idea.

and I like your avatar, you should make a comic that have them in that comic, 4 random kirbys in that stage you have them in in your avatar, so 4 random kirbys doing random stuff. XD :)

Posted at October 1st, 2013, 1:13 pm

Shouldn't Panee still be named Panee? Or does that mean Meta wasn't there?

Grace's new characteristic

Her trait is Support, because she was always there to help anyone, even when mute, and especially in Milkshake, when she could support people with her words.

I didn't think of the Avengers. I don't even know who they are.

Posted by Gigi19972010


Ehhhh, no. If that was the case, why would he even name Panee "Panee" instead of "Copy", in the original timeline?


Haha, thanks. :3

@Light/Pokemon the hedgehog:

Nope, genders are exactly the same. For example, Anny is a girl, so Laura is a girl, and so on.


Thanks! And yeah, I'm evil. >:3
Also, like I said in the author comment, almost all names are from people I know IRL, including Carlos. I don't even watch Big Time Rush...


Good guess, but right now I won't tell you if you're right or wrong!


That made me speechless.

Also, why the heck would Marx give anyone Mini... He must not be very smart.

Oh wait he isn't.
