Kirby's Dream Land

Artwork from Kirby's Dream Land.

Kracko's first appearance was as the third boss of the stage Bubbly Clouds. In this stage he also appears as a mini-boss as Kracko Jr. Like every boss, he has 6 HP, while his Kracko Jr. form has 3, like every mini-boss. Kracko summons Waddle Doos and uses a variety of Beam attacks.

Kirby's Adventure/Nightmare in Dream Land

Kracko appeared as the fourth boss of this game. When Kirby enters the boss stage Kracko Jr. appears. Kirby has to inhale a Starman and gain the Hi-Jump ability. Kirby then has to go to the top op the stage while being followed by Kracko Jr. When Kirby reaches the top Kracko Jr. Turns into Kracko and Kirby has to fight him either by using the Hi-Jump ability or spitting the Waddle Doo's back at him.

Kirby's Dream Land 2


Kracko appears again as the boss of stage 6: Cloudy Park. He begins as Kracko Jr., and after this form is defeated, he refills his health and turns into the full-grown Kracko. In his Kracko Jr. form he uses an attack that he's never used before and hasn't used since, where he merges into the cloudy ground, and jumps out to attack Kirby.

Kirby's Dream Land 3

Kracko appears as a drawing by Ado, instead of an actual boss. Interestingly, Ado is fought in Cloudy Park where Kracko was fought in Kirby's Dream Land 3. He can still shoot lightning.

Kirby Super Star (Ultra)

Kracko (left) and Kracko's Revenge (right).

Kracko was a boss in Kirby Super Star. He appeared in Spring Breeze, Milky Way Wishes, the Arena, Revenge of the King, Meta Knightmare Ultra, and the True Arena. In Revenge of the King and the True Arena, he evolves into Kracko's Revenge.

Kirby's Avalanche


Kracko is the opponent in stage 11. He is the third-to-last enemy, and only Meta Knight and King Dedede are fought after him.

Kirby and the Amazing Mirror


Kracko appears as the boss of Mustard Mountain. Unlike previous games, this is the first game to put Kracko in a place that is not in some way related to clouds. In this game, it creates Flamers instead of Waddle Doos.

Kirby: Canvas Curse

Kracko appears as Boss fought after the second time his image is selected from Drawcia's choice of three boss paintings. After his defeat, the sub-game, Block Attack will be unlocked. Kracko appears in the Level 2 and 3 difficulties. Kirby defeats Kracko while in the form of a ball, since no Copy Abilities are available in the sub-game. Kracko's only attack is much more accurately described as a passive-defensive electrical charge. Although he moves around the screen, Kirby is in constant motion and only takes damage when contacting Kracko in his charged state. The clouds and spikes surrounding Kracko are destroyed, temporarily, when Kirby smashes into them. Kracko only takes damage when his central eyeball is hit. Although the clouds surrounding him can be temporarily eliminated, when Kracko's electrical aura fires, the destroyed clouds appear in the aura and will damage Kirby upon contact. This incarnation of Kracko does not generate any enemies.

Kirby Squeak Squad

In Kirby Squeak Squad, Kracko is fought as Mecha Kracko, a robot built by Doc.

Kirby Air Ride

In Kirby Air Ride, Kracko is actually an item in Top Ride, not a boss. He selects a random opponent and strikes them with powerful lightning. Because of his power, he is a rare item.

Kirby's Epic Yarn

Kracko is, surprisingly, a mid-boss in Kirby's Epic Yarn. He is fought three times. The first time he chases Kirby for a short distance in Cloud Palace. Much later in the level, Kracko is actually fought. Kirby defeats it with his starship, the Star Shooter. He is encountered a third time as a mid-boss in Space Land, fittingly as Space Kracko.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe

KirbyBuilding.png This article or section is under construction. Therefore, please excuse its informal appearance while it's being worked on. We hope to have it completed as soon as possible.

In Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Kracko appears as the boss of Level 3, Old Odyssey. According to the boss description, Kracko has obtained more power from a mysterious source. This soon becomes obvious, as Kracko uses several new and more powerful attacks in this form. Halfway through the battle, Kracko's eye turns blood-red, and it uses a large tornado to clear out three separate platforms in the background. In this form it is much more dangerous, and even has an extremely powerful attack that involves growing to an immense size and covering the entire platform with lightning. This attack can only be avoided by going to the background with a cannon.

Kirby: Right Back at Ya!

Artwork from the anime.

In the anime, Kracko appears in episode four, "A Dark and Stormy Knight." He is much more powerful than he is in the games.


  • The games do not clearly state whether Kracko is the father of Kracko Jr., or just a powered-up form of him, although in some games, Kracko Jr. can be seen transforming into Kracko.
  • Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards and Kirby's Return to Dreamland are the only games so far that Kracko hasn't appeared in.
