Okay, so I'm going to use a lot of different sources for this.

In all of Kirby's normal games, he can eat anything his size or larger than him but dead. They are completely absorbed by him, and unless they have an ability, just vanish. If they have an ability, he gets some sort of add on in the more recent games, typically a hat for weapon. We could save his body turns the matter he consumes into this new matter. All of the other matter is deleted from his plane of existence.

In the Smash Bros. Series, when Kirby eats another fighter, they get plopped out with the same amount of matter they had when Kirby ate them, but Kirby gains matter (except in cases like Mr. Game and Watch where he sorta loses it...). I guess we can say the slight damage that is dealt upon eating another fighter is the energy he needs to power this new ability since it's pretty much near impossible to measure how much energy it takes to use attacks like Link's Arrows and Samus' charge beam. Kirby can, however, eat projectiles (like Link's bombs) and items, taking some damage typically.

In the Kirby Anime, Kirby relentlessly eats everything, and from what I can see, the only things that are bad for him to eat are Garbage and other things like it. He loses energy after too much inhaling, but that's to be expected. In an episode, Kirby eats a whole bunch of Apples from Wispy Woods, and later, Dedede destroys the entire forest. Kirby later is able to spit back up one of the apples he ate, and in turn, re-cultivate the entire freaking forest. There is also an episode where he eats Dedede, and Dedede is seen in some sort of an endless space-like expanse.

This leads to the conclusion that except for food that heals him, everything Kirby eats isn't actually considered eating. It's more like storage. As Kirby doesn't get any fatter (except that episode of the anime where he eats those chips that are literally designed to make the consumer gain weight) or massive, he can still be just as agile and quick, even if he ate an entire army (see: Hypernova Sequences). However, it seems like it has to be a conscious effort by Kirby to release anything he eats. I suppose the victim could also play a part, or if Kirby really wanted to win in Smash Bros, he would never spit them up after eating them. So the victim could have some control over getting free. This would explain why Kirby had to spit up the apple, and why Dedede never tried to get free in the Anime because he didn't really know where he was, and just so happened to be free in the next episode.

So Kirby's stomach/mouth/body is actually a controlled Black Hole.

Wicked fast metabolism; we must study his body, prepare for dissection!
Wanna get into the Smash Bros roster as a clone? Have lady parts so you get legions of white knights defending your inclusion... unless you're Daisy or Krystal.

Except even if he doesn't eat anything for a long period of time (during fights where he just uses an ability) he doesn't get hungry or even tired.

He's actually a living black hole.

Pretty sure scalpels wouldn't have the ability to pierce his flesh.

He has a contained black hole inside of him.

It's theorized that black holes take in matter and release it as energy.

The counter theory that insists the rule that matter cannot be destroyed has no exceptions says the matter is sent to an alternate reality/dimension rather than being destroyed and released as energy.

I'm not saying alternate realities/dimensions can't exist, but I think it's pretty absurd to think that the more likely scenario is the matter gets sent to an alternate reality/dimension just to keep the rule that matter cannot be destroyed as unbreakable.
