When an alien invasion arrives at Oakey Oaks, Kirby is the only survivor on Earth who does not feel frightened because it is revealed that his parents are looking for him.

Role in the film[]

Kirby first appears in an alien crib while Chicken Little, Abby, and Runt look for Fish inside his parents' spaceship, floating while he is sleeping, but his eyes, arms, and legs were not visible, but when he wakes up, his eye sticks out and frightened Chicken Little before he ran off with his friends to continue looking for Fish as his other two eyes open and his arms and legs appear as he follows them through the spaceship. After Chicken Little escapes from the spaceship, Kirby follows them and he gets left behind when his parent fled Earth. He follows Chicken Little to his house and he and his friend help Kirby get him back to his family. While during the war of the world in which an alien invasion takes place in Oakey Oaks, Kirby finds his family inside of a spaceship.

Later, when Chicken Little and his father, Buck Cluck are abducted by aliens, Kirby's father, Melvin was not understanding when he thought Chicken Little and Buck had violated the intergalactic law 90210, so he was about to kill them with all his powerful strong machine weapons, but Kirby convinces everything to his father and with his mother, Tina as well. They finally release them and it was misunderstanding, so things begin to be much better again and Kirby and his family leave Earth.

Kirby appears again during the credits dancing to "Don't Go Breaking My Heart".
