Qbby is a small square box with two eyes and two legs.
Qbby has the power to create more blocks around him, though the number he can create depends on the certain stage he is in. The Wizard costume can increase his box limit, but no costume can decrease it.
The same applies for the second installment in the series, except that Qbby can create two sets of boxes. The box limit now applies to both sets (not combined) as well.
Qbby can create one set of boxes, as per the first game. All rules from the original apply, except that in certain levels Qbby can be granted special abilities that allow his boxes to perform helpful actions.
All rules from the original apply.
In the Kirby series Edit
Qbby appears as a collectible sticker sticker in Kirby: Planet Robobot. Qbby also makes a small cameo in Kirby Star Allies; One of the possible forms Kirby can take with the Stone ability shows Qbby sitting on a building next to Mt. Fuji.
In the Nintendo Badge Arcade series Edit
- Qbby is technically a cube, not a square. This has been revealed through the Qbby amiibo, the BOXBOY! comic "Transform", and a particular segment of the BYE-BYE BOXBOY! trailer.
Name Origin Edit
Qbby's name is a play on the word cube.
