Appearances

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

KDL3 B Kracko.png

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 2. He can still shoot lightning.

Kirby Super Star (Ultra)

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

NiDLKracko.png

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

Quote1.png It seems Kracko has made Floralia part of its territory. It's being fed by a mysterious power source, so its attacks are stronger than ever before! Quote2.png
— Triple Deluxe Boss description

In Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Kracko appears as the boss of Level 3, Old Odyssey and is fought again in Stage 2 of Royal Road. It appears after being summoned (inadvertently) by Taranza in a last-ditch effort to escape Kirby. Kracko is souped up and possesses many new attacks not seen in previous iterations. It also has a DX form which is even more powerful.

The following lists all of Kracko's attacks in Story Mode and The Arena in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. Attacks in italics are used in the second phase of the fight only.

Kracko uses Super Lightning Storm as Kirby has fled to the background to avoid it.
Attacks - Normal
Attack Description
Summon Minion
Kracko shakes itself and drops a Waddle Doo into the arena, which can be swallowed for the Beam ability.
Star Beam
Kracko turns grey and unleashes a swirl of blue beams that spiral around itself for a short time.
Dive
Kracko dives across the stage, in a maneuver that can be difficult to dodge. It can do this in a few different ways. In the second phase, Kracko can dive between the planes.
Rain Storm
Kracko turns blue and delivers a torrent of rain below itself.
Lightning Storm
Kracko turns black and unleashes a flurry of lightning bolts below it as it travels slowly across the stage.
Super Spikes
While in a different plane than Kirby, Kracko shoots out two giant coiled spikes on both sides of it, then attempts to ram Kirby with them. after flying to one side of the stage, leaving stars in its wake. After passing once, it will try again from the other side.
Ejection
Kracko turns grey and vibrates violently, releasing all sorts of junk that can be inhaled and spat back, including a Parasol Waddle Dee, finishing with a cannon that Kirby can use to fire to a different plane. Kracko will usually follow this up with a big attack that necessitates Kirby's flight.
Super Lightning Storm
After a Discharge, Kracko inflates to a huge size and then proceeds to zap the entire stage with lightning. Kirby has to escape to a different plane to avoid getting hit.
Lightning Spike
If on the same plane as Kirby, Kracko charges up, then fires lightning bolts on both sides of it, then above and beneath it. It then fires two diagonal bolts. Any ground-hitting bolts will leave a star.
Beam Barrage
If Kracko is on a different plane than Kirby, it will attempt to fire a barrage of beam shots into Kirby's plane, which spread across the floor. It may also deliberately fly into a different plane to perform this attack. The last shot of the barrage leaves a star behind.
Charge Shot
While in the background and Kirby is in the foreground, Kracko shoots out its big golden spikes from the top of its 'head' and charges up a giant ball of energy, which it then tosses into Kirby's plane in an attempt to hit him. The blast hits the ground, then splits into many smaller blasts and some stars. These smaller blasts can be inhaled as well.

Whenever Kracko takes a hit, a visible tear drops from its single eye. Upon being reduced to half health, its eye and complexion become red, and it opens up with many more attacks after clearing away the background with a whirlwind, making it a factor in the fight.

Kirby: Right Back at Ya!

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

Trivia

  • 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.
