Kirby Lingerie Collection Announced for Japan

This is Niche Culture. In this column, we regularly cover anime, geek culture, and things related to video games. Please leave feedback and let us know if there’s something you want us to cover!

With the news that Nintendo is making not one but three new Kirby games, it makes sense to see the long-running pink mascot get some kind of cross-promotion.

The latest promotion for the pink bottomless feeder is probably the last thing you’d expect, however.

The new promotion comes via Japanese lingerie designer Peach John, who have teamed up with Nintendo to produce an.. interesting set of lingerie for our female readers:

The collection includes pajamas, underwear, and even a sleep mask that might help assist you in drifting off to Dream Land.

  • sanic

    I’d wear kirby boxers

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    How old is this girl?

  • Cy

    Was just about to say this, lol. Or maybe that should have an i at the end.

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    Because before I scrolled down I thought, “Hey, nice ass” and then I scrolled down…

  • Lucy Taylor

    Like that has ever mattered in Japan.

  • Lucy Taylor

    Japan needs to change.

  • Chocolate ISISCream

    inb4 normies get disgusted

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Uhh. Okay.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    see below.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Brandon could’ve cropped a different picture to avoid anything like that happening to be honest.

  • Matthew Hage

    She doesn’t look Japanese. Or maybe I’m just a racist.

  • Lucy Taylor

    I find it funny how anyone with some moral decency is labelled a “normie” on Niche Gamer.

    95% of the world’s population must be “normies” then!

  • Envy Noson

    Do they got American box art Kirby?

  • பெண் உலக மூலம்

    Baited and now i hate myself ;(

  • Personaknight

    What is this gijinka fan wet dream nonsense. Also who would want a see through pocket book/bag/backpack? That’s basically advertising people to rob you.

  • Shiggy Diggy Doo


    WHOA man, it’s almost as if it’d a different culture.

  • Personaknight

    Kirby’s transform powers have gone too far this time. honey your posturer has a face on it and it feels like it’s looking at me.

  • thedirtydev

    Sounds about right to me.

  • Feniks

    Statistically most people are normalfags, the name implies as such. No?

    Personally I find lingerie for little girls weird and wouldn’t want my daughteru to wear it but whatever gets you hard and it is done with mutual consent; no skin of my back.

  • thedirtydev

    I mean… if you find yourself questioning the age of the model then doesn’t that kind of imply you’ve already sexualized someone you perceive to be a child? If you have a problem with sexualizing children, then stop trying to find ways to sexualize the appearance of children.

  • Lucy Taylor

    This is where men are so ignorant and stupid they cannot tell that the female in the picture is clearly an adult, probably 19 – 21 years old dressed up to look like a mid-teen.

  • Lucy Taylor

    The woman in the picture is clearly an adult, probably 19 – 21 years old
    dressed up to look like a mid-teen. Lingerie is never marketed to minor females.

    I’m into beauty and fashion so I know.

  • thedirtydev

    “Lingerie is never marketed to minor females.”

    “I’m into beauty and fashion so I know.”

    K, but you’re wrong.

  • Zack Attack

    No kidding, Kirby boxers need to be a thing.

  • Zack Attack

    I’m very turned on for the fact that there is Kirby panties now. XD

  • RichardGristle

    Nintendo: censoring games then dressing your daughter up in lingerie.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Considering that there are plenty of underage girls who look about the same as this model, I’m gonna have to call bullshit on the “clearly an adult” part.

  • Lucy Taylor

    Do you honestly think that they would allow a minor female to advertise the lingerie?

    You’re so stupid. Aren’t you anti-sjw types meant to be ones that advocate for “muh truth”?

  • NukeA6

    Men are so ignorant and stupid? Bitch please, older women have been calling men pedophiles for dating younger women for years. The model pictured looks no different from a 15 year old so, of course, we’re gonna suspect jail-baiting. Clearly adult, my ass.

  • Khirt

    I totally agree with you, that girl is too old.

  • thedirtydev

    Considering children are used in Japanese underwear advertisements, and this is a Japanese advertisement, I’d say you’re looking pretty fucking basic.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    I never said that they would use a minor to advertise lingerie (I wouldn’t know either way in Japan tbh). What I did say however is that the model being “clearly an adult” and “probably 19-21 years old” isn’t exactly true since there are underage girls who look similar if not older than her, so it’s possible for some to become confused. Search ’16 year old girl’ on Google Images, see what you get and compare to the Kirby model.

    Sounds like you have an axe to grind with that last bit.

  • Lucy Taylor

    Perhaps Brandon Orselii should try to find out and clarify the female’s age to end all the accusations and controversy of the female being a minor.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Well since normie = normal person, yes 95% of the world’s population are normies. Clever girl.

  • Ironic as ISIScream is a Pedo. Lol
    But the only thing offensive here is that Nintendo is sexurlizing kirby. Why not make peach panties?

  • Too damn old for pigtails.

  • thedirtydev

    Perhaps if you’d stop acting like it’s controversial within the context of Japanese culture then there wouldn’t be a problem.

  • chero666

    That lady looks primed to kill.

  • Kirby face should be on the front.

  • s_fnx

    Old enough.

  • Magnifico Ginormous

    Perhaps you should go back to GBS and if that reference flies over your head then go back to Tumblr instead!

  • Kiryu

    Or perhaps you should fuck off and go back to Tumblr.

  • Kiryu

    You really expect sjws to make sense?

  • Kiryu

    Japan already told the likes of you to fuck off,get used to it.

  • nine_ball

    You clearly do not know what a normalfag is.

  • randomdude

    might work better as a bra….

  • Zanard Bell
  • gwadahunter2222

    I would prefer Motomura Urara as model

  • Alister

    Goddamn this shit is scary. Dose anyone else get creaped out from seeing this.

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    Lucy seems to be the resident troll who spouts all forms of SJW bullshit now.

  • Fenrir007

    She’s a 10.000 year old semen youkai. Happy now?

  • Shinobu

    That girl has no ass.

  • MLG Barroth

    real women have Kirbs

  • Nalferd

    Geez that user is always offended whenever it speaks.

  • Nalferd

    I could already make a montage with the amount of times that user got triggered.

  • SullenSamurai

    Nintendo of America: censors fictional adult females wearing bikinis in a game aimed at teens and older.

    Nintendo: dresses real female of debatable age in lingerie based off of one of their most family-friendly mascots.

    Know your enemy. Nintendo ≠ Nintendo of America. Their ethos as companies are so different it causes me physical pain.

  • Kessek

    Yeah, flat-assed white girls freak me the f*ck out.

  • Richard

    Might be nice to have a little surprise every now and then.


    Think jailbait, maybe edgy one if the look at her eyes are indication lol


    It’s like young girls don’t deserve to look good or better than dear old Lucy!


    Not to mention sort of edgy eyes and the weird pigtails she dons.

  • le master trole

    you can be trans-racial nowadays!
    ugh, it’s 2017, you should know that!

  • le master trole

    why do you come to this place if you hate it so much? you must hate yourself

  • Forgotten One

    For the sake of my personal amusement (and that of many others), do it :P

  • Mighty No. 56008

    “Lingerie is never marketed to minor females.”

    *Does quick google search*
    Yeesh, I feel dirty looking for it but I at least showed how wrong you are. Besides just think about it, why wouldn’t the fashion industry want to market lingerie of some kind to minors? They still need to wear underwear of some kind, so not profit from it?

    Now I don’t think any of the models that show off the lingerie are underage though, if that’s what you actually meant.

  • Lucy Taylor

    So tolerant of differing opinions I see. Are your lot not meant to be the reasonable and tolerant ones? Acting like the “sjws” you attack. Oh dear.

  • catazxy

    Nah man, Brandon picked just right :))

  • SiliconNooB



  • TsukuyomiMagi99

    She loves the attention she’s getting.

  • TsukuyomiMagi99

    Tolerance only extends to you posting your opinion regardless of what it is without censorship that’s all. It doesn’t mean people have to like it, can’t insult you, or makes you immune to criticism. Though the levels of projection in this post are hilarious especially since SJW’s like you censor other people with dissenting voices by slapping a convenient label and preserving your precious safe space. The only hypocrite here is you.
