Zero Kirby is an MFGGer who joined Mario Fan Games Galaxy on August 13th, 2006 and the MFGG Forums on August 15th, 2006. At first, he was one of those guys who had just found the internet and was generally considered to be an unintelligent and annoying member. Since then, however, he has matured into a somewhat well-known member who has had several stints as a staff member.
Zero originally found MFGG when looking for sprites so he could make his own sprite comics, having found one just earlier called Sonic and Pals. Exploring the main site, he soon found Game Maker and began making his own fangames with the program. He registered an account on the main site under the name Zero_Hero789. After a while, he visited the forums and quickly created an account there too, also as Zero_Hero789.
He met trouble early on when Sergeant Jinpen began harassing him. After Zero's own forum was spammed, Zero raised the issue on MFGG, and was banned for bringing up an outside dispute. He was later banned for making duplicate accounts, but before he was permabanned, an administrator noticed that one of the accounts had an e-mail address matching one of Jinpen's aliases, implying that Jinpen was behind the duplicates. Jinpen had even tried to steal the password to Zero_Hero789's account, and was immediately himself. Zero returned no worse for the wear. He was also banned later for flaming Draku. Since then, however, he has become a much better member, not having been banned since.
On January 19th, 2007, Zero_Hero789 registered a new account on the MFGG Main Site under the alias Zero Kirby, the name he currently uses. The reasons for this are unknown, but is speculated to simply be a case of wanting a new username, given that an account's username couldn't be changed at the time. Zero_Hero789's last activity was on January 17th, 2007, two days before made registering as Zero Kirby. He still uses this new account to this day.
Promotion To Site Staff, Moderator and Global Moderator
Zero Kirby became a member of the Site Staff on December 30th, 2009. On April 4th, 2010, Zero Kirby became a Moderator of the General Chat, but was moved to Fangame Discussion on August 19th, 2010. During The Split, he initially migrated to Minus World as a moderator of the development boards there. After a short while, however, he returned to MFGG.
He is still part of the Site Staff and is trying to be more active in his role, despite being missing from the Main Site Staff Page for several years. On August 6th, 2017, Zero Kirby officially became a Global Moderator on the MFGG Forums again, but stepped down from his staff positions on December 24th, 2018, along with several other staff members.
Zero has created several different projects during his time at MFGG; however, very few of them ever went anywhere.
- Super Mario Classic - Completed. The game is noted for being extremely poor quality, its only saving grace the music.
- Super Mario Classic: Return - Completed. The game is noted for its graphics and originality at the time.
- Super Mario Classic Two: Mushroom Archipelago - Canceled.
- Super Mario Zero - Hiatus.
- The Toybox - a.k.a. Super Mario Toybox, a final name has yet to be truly decided. It's called Toybox for the reason that it's simply a game which Zero is making just to see what he can do in Game Maker.
- Super Mario Classic: Returns: Return 2: The Revenge of the Return: Reloaded - A "re-imagining" of his first few games in Game Maker, it's intended to be a complete overhaul of his first few games into a much higher-quality product. A shorthand title is "Super Mario Classic Subsandwich."
Zero Kirby is recognized somewhat for his drawings, and hopes to become an accomplished artist. He has developed what he thinks to be an original style, though that's certainly in dispute. Recently, he has simplified his style to a somewhat extreme degree, and now commonly draws in an abstract style. He took inspiration from the art style of Viewtiful Joe, and now uses a similar shading style.
Zero has drawn several MS Paint and Photoshop comics; most notably Yoshiman Plays Hooky (two sagas) and Stario: Star Warrior, originally written by DavidCaruso. His most well known endeavors are Yoshiman Plays Hooky, the comic adaptation of DavidCaruso's Stario fanfiction, and the Super Mario Classic series. During the Murderous MFGGer event, he played Lemony Snicket. Snicket has since been retired after The Split.
His current character is a caricature of himself and his common clothing. He wears a leather driving cap and a green flight jacket over a cyan shirt with a black stripe. He wears dark blue pants and red-and-black shoes. He also has a design with a leather coat and hoodie, and a trilby sporting a seven of diamonds in the brim, his current motif.
