Game Theory: How Does Kirby Fly?

SUBSCRIBE for More Theories! ►
I know what you're thinking, Kirby sucks up some air and floats - that's how he flies. Except that should NOT work! Kirby, everyone's favorite little pink mystery, should sink like a lead filled balloon. Why doesn't he? Well today Theorists, we are going to solve the problem with Kirby's flight!

    Kirby in aventure mode can jump and fly unlimited time but another example is in battle Kirby when you fly you get tired because you use ur hands and it could not aloud to fly unlimited times

    Haven't seen it completely, but I was thinking about density. Yes with air in it it weighs slightly more, but also it gets more volume, meaning that the density of inflated Kirby is less than not inflated Kirby, allowing it to float.

    However, my good man, Matpat, there's more that goes into flying than just drag. There's also lift and thrust. There's also, obviously gravity. How is it that little Kirb here can overcome not only gravity but also upwards air resistance, the usual application of drag, to propel himself upwards and forward? Is flapping his little arm nubs enough?

I'll still enjoy this video I'm just a bit sad I wasn't able to listen to the rest of the lore.

    There are so many issues that factor together into a pile of bullshit. Matpat first off needs to handle the negative feedback of the internet. But I understand that his golden era is over, so people will be less likely to enjoy his content. Matpat mostly used to perform more scientific theories which were backed with facts, similar to this one, which made it easier to agree with. But with lore theories there are many ways to interpret leading to more speculation and ultimately disagreement. Because of Matpats traditional style of videos being successful, people see him as somewhat a professional when it comes to Game Theories. And as his channel grows, whether it is showmanship or not, Matpat presents himself as such. Especially present in his vocabulary in lore videos, Matpat doesn't really use word choice to make it sound like his opinion and rather, maybe inadvertently, makes it sound like hard fact until the classic until "It's just a theory." Even though this is his job, he is just as qualified to make these videos as anyone who plays videogames are. I feel everyone would begin to enjoy his videos better if they didn't take it so seriously, and Matpat didn't take himself so seriously either. Let a man do what he enjoys, but when you perform for an audience you have to make sure you give an audience what they want, without being passive aggressive about it. There is literally a side to everything, so it is more likely everyone is at fault here rather than just one side.

    You forgot density. Yes, air increases mass and weight, but (for everything denser than it) decreases density. A decreased density is also what is causing Kirby to float
