Mecha Knight is a Boss fought in Kirby: Planet Robobot, appearing as the boss of Gigabyte Grounds. He is Meta Knight, but has been subdued, mechanized and taken over by the Haltmann Works Company to do their bidding. He wields a laser Galaxia, and possesses several robotic upgrades and implements, including jet wings, missile launchers and a laser eyepiece.

Game Appearances

Kirby: Planet Robobot

Mecha Knight is brought in by Susie to deal with Kirby at the end of Gigabyte Grounds. She speaks of him as if he were merely a security guard hired and upgraded by the company. After activating him, she leaves the scene using her helicopter unit, and Mecha Knight is forced to battle with Kirby. Even when the fight has concluded, Kirby does not appear to recognize Mecha Knight for who he really is.

In Meta Knightmare Returns, rather than having Meta Knight fight himself, he instead fights a replica known as Stock Mecha Knight. This synthetic version is the equivalent of a Mecha Knight 2.0.

Claw Jump

Once Mecha Knight is defeated, his jets malfunction, causing him to crash. He gets up, staggers, and falls backward into a chasm, exploding. This leaves Kirby to do his dance, and proceed to the next level.
