I feel like I have to drop a tl;dr of Keeby in general here to explain better some stuff. It's not a complete explanation because there are still some stuff that will happen that will make his actions even more clear, so stay tuned to that.

So, anyway, Dual Destinies happened, and in the end Keeby got super mad and just left. Although I did put some stuff before that showed he would get mad at Kirby for not helping him and stuff, it wasn't enough. However, at the time I posted that chapter, I wasn't fully aware of that. You see, I'm the author, not the reader of the comic, and although most of the time I can predict what you all think of a character and such, I make mistakes. And such Keeby was probably my biggest mistake of the comic (and I guess the whole Dual Destinies chapter, but that's another story).

I'll admit it; I'm not here to lie to you guys: when I posted the last page of Dual Destinies I had 0 intentions of that being Keeby pretending to be mad at Kirby. It was Keeby for reals snapping and doing that out of anger. He wasn't supposed to be acting. At the time I had already the idea he would go after Xiaolin to train his powers, and would end up making the plan for him, but not 100% like how in the end it happened.

But that quickly changed. The more comments I got of people saying Keeby was out of character, or how his actions were too sudden, (in the whole chapter even) the more I realized that I had something wrong, and that I had to change something, and fast. So I looked at Keeby's characterization, and quickly the whole idea of him pretending to snap just to go after Xiaolin came to me.

Of course, that still was no easy task. Although you did say Keeby was acting strange in Dual Destinies, if I only later made him come back like he did in Miracles Matter, and then now how he betrayed Xiaolin, you all would think this was really out of nowhere. That's where Reminiscence came.

In Reminiscence no one could explain Keeby's actions fully. By showing this, I hoped I would make it clear that the only way Keeby's actions would make sense was if he was playing double agent... Or I guess like some people said, if he was possessed by Dark Matter lol. But yeah. Ever since, I think I saw two people guess so, so congrats; I guess in the end I was able to implant that idea.

So this is what I can talk about Keeby right now. Mind you, there are still some things that explain his actions more. But rest assured he never wanted to destroy the world. If you have any questions, ask them away, I'll answer them if they don't spoil future events.

I also want to thank everyone who, at the time Dual Destinies ended, commented about Keeby's actions. Without your comments I would probably continue with the idea that Keeby did snap "normally" at Kirby, and I would most likely have destroyed his characterization by this point. I'm not a perfect writer.

Couldn't my OC (Psycho, you know, light green Kirby with black shoes and always drinks Mtn. Dew Voltage) kick the heck out of Miracle Matter with out thinking twice?

1- I have no clue who your Kirby OC is. Don't act like I know who they are.

2- I have no idea why you want them so badly to show up, when the only time I put chracters that aren't mine was due to contests, and I've already said in the past I won't add any more cameos.

3- If your character is so overpowered that they can defeat Miracle Matter easily, after it was said in the comic it's super powerful, I'd rather not put them anyway to destroy any conflict the comic still has left.

I've been patient with you so far but you haven't replied to any of my replies to you. If you don't reply yet again and keep posting comments about your OC showing up in the comic I'll have to assume you're a troll and I'll ban you because your comments have been REALLY annoying. Just stop commenting about that and actually listen to me, please. Consider this a warning.

@PsychoSSF2: Stop. She's been planning this for years (I think? probably), and she's already said she won't add cameos. If you want your OC to beat up Miracle Matter so much, make your own comic and have them do it there.

I hope things will go out well later on. In Keeby's description, he sort of envies Kirby. Perhaps it did have something to do with Keeby going mad.

Guess those giant longwinded comments finally proved they could pay off in the long run

Hey, could you have my OC named Captian Ori fly in and smack Xiaolin with Pikmin until he fainted? And then chase down Galacta Knight and send him to the shadow realm? It would be easy for him!

...jk, of course. :P
Btw, all this still seems slightly out of character for Keeby (he's always had others in on his plans, never working completely alone) but hopefully this will be explained in the future like you mentioned would happen.

I'm not so insightful about the comic to say if aanyone's out of character unless it's super obvious. I usually just let the author handle whatever.

Hold up you can ban people from comment sections here?
ya gotta do it man
i'm sick and tired of this iid just talking as if his oc deserves a main character role here
i've been through this many times a bunch of kids just talking to another artist and throwing temper tantrums just for a cameo that no one but himself cares about

@Gigi19972010: i know you don't know this OC... but you can check it out in wattpad

Can we just ask sakura dee and jiyuu to just throw a giant ball of Light at miracle and dissolve him completly? (Light : a subtance that can be created by anybody who follows the star power (Heroes of dreamland equivalent of god). But only star warriors/kirbies have special abilities with their light. If you haven't mastered it properly yet, it can drain your energy - FAST! despite this, it is more effective against dark matter than any of the final boss weapons (star rod, luv luv stick, rainbow sword, crystal gun. I mainly found this out cuz of the fact that you could turn into a litteral STAR! and the fact that said Light had beaten PURE! DARKNESS!))

@its jade 7w7: not sure if trolling/sarcasm
or actually being an idiot kid wanting desperately for a cameo in a comic

It did! Keeby did get mad at Kirby for various reasons, it just wasn't enough to actually make him go "ok bye".


Trust me they were never in vain



Well, he also had Kawpy helping him here, otherwise this really wouldn't work. Unless you're talking about something else?

@Chendra Limiarja:

Yeah, when you delete someone's comment you have the option to also ban them after doing so. If it's an user you can ban their account only, or that along with their IP even. If it's a guest it's only IP based.

@its jade 7w7:

cameo added, comic ended

@Gigi19972010: Oh, Kawpy secretly worked with him too... That makes much more sense.
