A unique convergence of elements, from native-beast souls to ethereal butterfly, gave a stubborn soul one last chance at revenge. This new creation, driven by pure chaos, was defeated by the bright light of Kirby's hope. The last bit of life that remained willingly returned to Elfilin. At last, two became one.
— Figure description from Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Chaos Elfilis, titled Species Born of Chaos, is a secret boss in Kirby and the Forgotten Land, encountered exclusively at the end of the Colosseum's Ultimate Cup Z mode, serving as the final boss of that mode and therefore the last boss of the entire game. It is a variant of Fecto Elfilis, and can be considered a stronger version of them. Despite not having the suffix "soul", Chaos Elfilis shares many similarities with other soul bosses. It is an amalgamation made out of Fecto Forgo's and the Beast Pack's souls, as well as Morpho Knight's power. Its color scheme is reminiscent of , with some elements being drawn from Morpho Knight.

Chaos Elfilis has two distinct forms. The first resembles Fecto Elfilis and fights in a similar manner, though with new and much stronger attacks. Much like Fecto Elfilis in the main game, once Chaos Elfilis is at low enough health, it is knocked down and an orb of energy appears on its back, though instead of containing Elfilin, it seems to be opaque. When Kirby separates it using Dome Mouth, it reveals itself as the second "soul" form of Chaos Elfilis. From here, the leftover body is transformed into balls of flesh that orbit the central soul orb, and these balls can be inhaled and spat at Chaos Elfilis to damage it in this phase. In this second form, it has many attacks that are similar to preceding soul bosses, such as Black Hole, Shooter Cutter, Deadly Sun, Splash Rush and Deadly Bound. At the start of the second phase, the song Eternal Echo of the Thrilling Tour-our-our plays.

Chaos Elfilis' figure flavor text mentions that the last bits of its life returned to Elfilin after its defeat, which is what is seen happening in the cut-scene that plays at that point.


The following are Chaos Elfilis's attacks. Attacks in italics are only used in the second half of the respective phases. Note that attack names are conjectural:

Phase 1[edit]

The first form has 3400 HP (Star Bullet=80). It enters the second half when its HP is below 40%, and it takes 0.8× damage during the whole second half.[1]

Chaos Elfilis's Attacks - Phase 1  
Attack Description Variants
Straight Blade Arrows Chaos Elfilis either flies to the horizon or to the center of the battlefield and creates several spear-shaped projectiles, and the phantom spears are launched towards Kirby one by one. There are three possible patterns to the spears. The first is an overhead pattern, the second is an underfoot pattern, and the third is a combination of the two.
Spinning Blade Arrows Chaos Elfilis causes a ring of blade arrows to appear around Kirby and track him for a moment. After a while, they stop and then fly inward, leaving a ring of Drop Stars in their wake.
Tornado Strike Chaos Elfilis strikes the ground with its spear, releasing flaming tornadoes similar to those of Morpho Knight's that spiral outward quickly. This attack is only used after three Crescent Shots are fired.
Rift Jab Chaos Elfilis opens a series of rifts and strikes the ground multiple times through them with its spear, causing medium-sized shockwaves to spread outward. It does this twice, on each side of the arena.
Strike Pound Chaos Elfilis strikes the ground with its spear from a distance, causing a medium-sized shockwave around it and producing six Drop Stars.
Strike Dash Chaos Elfilis aims its spear straight, charges, and then dashes forward into a rift. It then emerges several times from subsequent rifts charging at Kirby with each pass, finishing by creating a long line of Drop Stars.
Sharp Spear Swing Chaos Elfilis rushes towards Kirby with its spear head facing downwards, causing a momentary alteration to the battlefield.
Spin Strike Chaos Elfilis spins around in a circle with its spear out, causing mini shockwaves to appear around it.
Front Strike Chaos Elfilis swings its spear twice or more in front of itself. This attack can be used in combination with Straight or Spinning Blade Arrows. Chaos Elfilis may teleport before releasing its strikes.
Crescent Shot Strike Chaos Elfilis charges its spear tip, then throws two or three big crescent shots at Kirby which leave behind Drop Stars in their wake. If three crescent shots are thrown, this will immediately follow up with Tornado Strike.
Laser Beam Chaos Elfilis flies high up and charges its spear before unleashing a powerful beam that follows Kirby's movements.
If Kirby makes contact with the beam, he will be trapped and take massive damage.
The beam attack ends with a blast that creates a ring of Drop Stars.
Giant Phantom Swing Chaos Elfilis creates a giant phantom duplicate of itself which swings its massive spear across the arena, creating a wave of debris in the process. Chaos Elfilis throws Blade Arrows at Kirby during these attacks from afar.
Rift Lasers Chaos Elfilis flies high up and charges its spear before unleashing a powerful beam into a rift.
More rifts then open up that release the laser beam in various patterns across the arena, with the last pass releasing Drop Stars upon dissipating.
There are two main patterns to this attack. The first is a wave of rifts that slowly sweep across the arena. The second is a cross-pattern where lasers fire perpendicular to each-other at various positions.
Meteor Shower Chaos Elfilis opens a huge star-shaped dimensional rift in the sky, and six meteors fall towards the ground, which Kirby has to dodge. Each meteor creates a shockwave upon landing.
Cocoon Healing Chaos Elfilis guards and makes copies of itself, adding a secondary blue health bar. In order to deplete the blue health bar, Kirby must attack the real version to deplete the blue health before the blue laser ring closes in on it.
Any blue health remaining at the end of this move will be added to Chaos Elfilis's normal health bar.
If Kirby manages to deplete all of the extra health, Chaos Elfilis will be momentarily stunned.
The real Chaos Elfilis has a shadow underneath itself shortly after it duplicates.

Phase 2[edit]

The second form has 3000 HP. It will begin using the Deadly Sun when its HP is 70% or below.[1] If its HP is still above 70% during the first use of Pulse Laser, it will finish using it three total times before the Deadly Sun.

Unlike most bosses, the second form's HP is not locked, so if sufficient damage is made, the Deadly Sun and anything afterwards can be skipped entirely.

Chaos Elfilis's Attacks - Phase 2  
Attack Description Variants
Black Hole Chaos Elfilis turns into a black hole, drawing Kirby in. If Kirby is captured, he will be taken to a black void and damaged greatly before being spat out again. Chaos Elfilis always starts this phase with this attack.
Pulse Laser Chaos Elfilis positions its orbs into two distinct spots, then shoots two laser pulses out of them toward Kirby, creating a small blast and creating Drop Stars. It does this several times, repositioning for many of its blasts. If enough orbs are destroyed beforehand, either only one laser will fire or the attack will fail altogether. After using Pulse Laser three times, this attack transitions to a Triple Pulse Laser.
Triple Pulse Laser After using three Pulse Lasers, Chaos Elfilis will use three Pulse Lasers in quick succession, without any breaks in-between. This attack produces 5 Drop Stars for each beam. Below 70% health, Chaos Elfilis will teleport to a different location before firing each beam.
Shooter Cutter Chaos Elfilis teleports to specific spots around the arena, and shoots out six red cutter blades laterally. These can be swallowed for the Cutter ability. It uses this attack three times initially and four times later in the fight, doing the last two in quick succession.
Loud Song Chaos Elfilis arranges its orbs in a ring, and then starts shooting lasers out of them as it spins them around itself. Kirby can disarm these lasers by inhaling the orbs that are firing them. If an orb is attacked in any capacity, the attack will end early.
Deadly Sun Chaos Elfilis turns into a giant flaming meteor and then passes overhead, slamming into a hunk of floating debris. The debris falls onto the arena and creates steps which Kirby needs to use to avoid the subsequent charge attack. This attack happens two times. The charge attack cannot be guarded or dodged. Later instances of this attack skip the initial part where Chaos Elfilis flies into the debris.
Splash Rush Chaos Elfilis splits into several smaller pieces and then rains down on Kirby as a rapid hailstorm. This attack deals a lot of damage to Kirby's guard.
Deadly Bound Chaos Elfilis starts bouncing around in the background, and then jumps high into the air, slamming into the arena and creating a giant shockwave with lightning bolts pulsing through it. This attack is used three times in a row. There are more lighting bolts during the third bounce.

At the start of the second phase of the battle, Chaos Elfilis initially starts with a Black Hole attack before attacking in this fixed order on loop as follows:

  1. Pulse Laser x3
  2. Triple Pulse Laser
  3. Shooter Cutter
  4. Loud Song

When its HP gets below 70%, it abruptly starts with a Deadly Sun attack before attacking in a fixed order on loop as follows:

  1. Splash Rush
  2. Deadly Bound
  3. Loud Song
  4. Shooter Cutter
  5. Triple Pulse Laser
  6. Black Hole
  7. Deadly Sun
  8. Loud Song


  • Chaos Elfilis is the second true final boss to not feature the suffix "soul", after Void.
    • Like Void, the title might be chosen to show that it is above the power of a soul boss, as Chaos Elfilis is essentially a mixture of Soul Forgo, Morpho Knight, and countless other souls.
  • Chaos Elfilis' beam attack appears to reference Magolor's Second Form and Magolor Soul's beam attacks, where they fire a beam into a rift and proceed to make other rifts that transfer the beam through them.
  • The eyes of Chaos Elfilis' figure follows the player when rotated, and is the only figure to do so.
    • Although, this could be due to an optical illusion, where a red orb is in the center of the eye so it appears as if it constantly looks toward the camera. This is the same illusion that Star Dream uses.
  • The Colosseum timer disappears during the Chaos Elfilis battle, but the Attack/Speed Boost effect counter still runs, which can be used as a rough timer of this battle.
    • According to the Attack/Boost effect counter, the Colosseum timer still runs during the part when Kirby uses Dome Mouth to separate the second form, so the player has to do it as fast as possible for speedrun purpose.
    • If Kirby is sucked into the black hole by the second form, the Colosseum timer will still run even though the Attack/Speed Boost effect counter will pause.
  • Currently, the first form of Chaos Elfilis has the most health in any single non-shoot 'em up boss battle from the main series.
    • The second form has more health than any single battle of the soul/true final bosses. However, Void (with 2000 HP) has more durability due to its dynamic defense rate whereas the second form of Chaos Elfilis has no defense rate in the whole battle.
