The Reverse Kirby Effect is the collective name for marketing entertainment products, mainly video games. The definition of this is a character is redesigned to look serious and/or angry from their original Japanese counterpart, generally for characters that were originally intended to be cute, most commonly on games that feature female protagonists. This was originally created by Nintendo for their Kirby series; Drillimation mainly uses it for almost all their games.
