Okay, I just thought of this: what if the Power Kirby were a kind of
retrocotheric wave the way radio waves, light and x-rays are all
electromagnetic waves.  And a quantum of retrocotheric energy could be
a kirbyon.  But the retrocotheric energy that Manga Man uses is
different from the energy that Kid Kirby uses, different wavelength,
maybe not even originating from Kid Kirby's dimension, hence not the
Power Kirby per se.  Of course, retric force would be the force that
causes retcons and cotheric force could be the force that causes
people to forget the old histories and remember the new (which we know
doesn't always happen at the same time).  Retrocotheric energy makes
things happen like magic, like Stomper said.  In the story universe he
explains it as being something that violates the laws of classical
physics but out of the story universe it basically allows deux-ex-
machima to occur.  How's that?
