The one who summoned the invader from another dimension was none other than Taranza, who plotted while hidden in apparent defeat.

He has summoned the giant mirror as his final weapon, gazing not only upon its shimmering surface but the dark shadows lurking within...

The Black Mirror[1] is an enchanted object from Team Kirby Clash Deluxe, which serves as a gateway between dimensions, and a conduit for King D-Mind's influence.


Team Kirby seals King D-Mind back into the mirror after defeating him.

The Black Mirror resembles the Dimension Mirror from Kirby & The Amazing Mirror and Kirby: Triple Deluxe, but bears a sharper, metallic black frame. It lacks wings, and instead features large spikes protruding from either side of the frame. Its interior is likewise a very dark hue, and seems to only poorly reflect light. This gives the mirror a stronger resemblance to Dark Mind, and King D-Mind especially.

The Black Mirror is controlled by King D-Mind, the king of darkness who resembles a cross between Shadow Dedede and Dark Mind. The king used it to influence Taranza, causing him to wreak havoc on the Dream Kingdom by unleashing all sorts of monsters. Specifically, Taranza's desires to bring back Queen Sectonia using the mirror caused the extra-dimensional road to another dimension to begin collapsing, in turn, bringing Parallel Susie and Parallel Landia forth from the mirror. It isn't long until Taranza loses control of the mirror's power and brings forth his dark form from the mirror itself.[2]

Upon defeat, Dark Taranza uses the mirror to summon King D-Mind, but immediately was taken down by the latter with his hammer. Upon King D-Mind's second defeat, Team Kirby seals him in a far-off dimension via the mirror and shatters it, destroying its influence on Taranza and restoring peace to the Dream Kingdom.

  1. And so, the king of darkness--who sprang from the ugliness of the black mirror--has been sealed in a far-off dimension by Team Kirby.
