I’m very fond of the head canon that Meta Knight in the anime does have wings, but doesn’t want to freak out the locals and be demonised for them. So he hides them with an enchanted cape. He gets bad back ache though from hiding them for so long and every now and then has to stretch them out. Kirby was trying to ask him if he could fly, btw.
please GOD ignore the background! I literally only scribbled this so I could draw the last panel 😀
