Chapter 12 (Mentioned)
Gobi was a character who made his debut in Chapter 12 of Kirby: Behind the Scenes 3: Chronicles of Darkness as one of the major antagonists. He was the self-proclaimed King of the Salt Kingdom.
Gobi was a Pangolan with a long snout, hands with three claws with two working as fingers and the third as a thumb and he has many spines on his back and a silver crown with a pale blue gem on top of his head. He is a tannish brown with a white area extending from his snout to his feet. He has a pink nose and eyes with slitted pupils. His mouth is filled with pointy, sharp teeth.
As a 8 year old kid, Gobi looks much like he does in the present day except that he was smaller and his spikes on his back were shorter as well.
He originally had 3 toes on his feet and he had two visible fangs on his snout. He also originally had pink paw pads on his hands and the bottom of his feet.
Gobi was a cruel, tyrannical ruler who only cares about himself and his minions close to him. He has no interest in how much his subjects are suffering from his rule as long as he gets his tax money, showing that he is a bit greedy. Gobi was originally a kind person before the deaths of his parents made him bitter towards other people to the point that he refused to be adopted or make friends with anyone.
He is also quick to blame others without knowing the truth as he blamed Derin and the Fairies of Planet Ripple Star for the deaths of his parents.
20 years before the series began, Gobi's parents were killed in the Dark Matter Cataclysm when he was 8 years old and he was unaware that the true murderers of his parents were Dark Matter. He spent the next 10 years in a orphanage where he refused to befriend other people or being adopted, preferring to be alone. When he was 18, he organized a army to rebel against Derin in a attempt of revenge.
10 years prior to the beginning of the series, Gobi led a rebellion against Dream Land after growing tired be being ruled by Derin. The war only lasted for a month and a truce treaty was signed but the Salt Desert was liberated from Dream Land, becoming it's own country and Gobi made himself King.
Kirby: Behind the Scenes 3: Chronicles of DarknessEdit
Gobi was first mentioned by Joe in Chapter 12. He and his cruel deeds are mentioned numerous times during the Chapter, such as him taxing his subjects and executing them if they cannot pay. He will make his first physical appearance in Chapter 13.
Gobi was close with his father and mother as a child before their deaths due to Dark Matter's invasion. Their deaths was a tragic experience for Gobi and made him turn into the person he is today.
Despite being a cruel tyrant to his subjects, Gobi treats members of his army quite well and he is shown not to be cruel towards them.
- The origin of Gobi's name is from the Gobi Desert in the real world.
