This article is about the location in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. For other colosseums throughout the series, see Colosseum (disambiguation).
Whoa! I can hear the crowd cheering from all the way out here!
— Elfilin, in reference to the Colosseum

The Colosseum is a place in Waddle Dee Town that appears in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. The amphitheater is northwest of the center plaza, and its construction is completed once Kirby finishes Wondaria Remains. Kirby can compete in this Boss Endurance Sub-Game by talking to the Commentator Waddle Dee out front, and it is similar to The Arena from past installments. There are a total of three different cups Kirby can compete in, which are unlocked after completing different requirements throughout the game. As each cup is unlocked, the exterior design of the amphitheater modifies. Kirby is not required to enter the Colosseum after signing up, and he can exit the Colosseum via the pause menu at any time after entering. Coming out victorious in all three cups is required for 100% completion.

Kirby starts each cup and can rest in-between battles in the Colosseum's hypogeum, serving as the rest area like in other boss endurance modes. It contains a limited supply of food and at least one Copy Essence (with the type of food and number of Copy Essences varying based on the cup), as well as a display indicating who will be fought in the next battle and how many battles are left in the cup. A second player can also play alongside Kirby at any point. The order in which most of the bosses and mid-bosses are fought in is random, though each cup has at least one boss always fought at the same point.

Gameplay[edit]

Kirby battling Wild Frosty in the Colosseum

The Colosseum has three different difficulties in which Kirby can choose from: the Meta Knight Cup is the easiest and is unlocked alongside the Colosseum, The Ultimate Cup is unlocked after completing Lab Discovera, and The Ultimate Cup Z is unlocked after completing the Isolated Isles of Forgo Dreams. An exclusive item is unlocked after completing each cup for the first time: clearing the Meta Knight Cup rewards the Meta Knight Sword blueprint, while the others reward a rare figure each.

When Kirby enters the Colosseum, his health is automatically fully restored. Kirby can take in any Copy Ability and Stock Item he chooses, and amiibo can be used for their extra bonuses. Co-op is also available, with the second player playing as Bandana Waddle Dee. In-between battles, they can use a limited supply of food for healing if needed, and can also pick up Star Coins from chests. Before the final round, an additional food item can be found inside the last chest. Best times are kept for each cup, which also keep track of the difficulty (Spring Breeze Mode: green; Wild Mode: red) and when amiibo, items, and/or co-op are used.

New to the boss endurance mode is that when Kirby loses in the Colosseum, he can spend Star Coins to continue and restart from the last battle, but the timer resumes from the time he was defeated. The price starts from 100 Star Coins and then doubles for each subsequent defeat, up to 2000 Star Coins.

Colosseum Cups[edit]

The Colosseum has three cups which represent different difficulties. The player health remains constant in each cup, however it varies depending on the game's difficulty. In addition, the game's difficulty has no influence on bosses such as their health and their action patterns. A preview image for each cup will show the specific bosses that are set to be fought during specific rounds each time an individual cup is entered.

The following lists information on the boss battles, how many healing items are given, and other factors in each Cup:

List of Bosses[edit]

The following lists every boss and mid-boss in the Colosseum, with information on their health and the difficulty levels in which they appear. Like in previous titles, the Colosseum bosses usually have less health than in the Story Mode, this time with only about 70% of the Story Mode max health. The Colosseum is the only area where Meta Knight, Phantom Meta Knight, and Chaos Elfilis can be fought; the former in the Meta Knight Cup and The Ultimate Cup, and the latter two in the Ultimate Cup Z.

Trivia[edit]

  • There are two Present Codes found on the Colosseum.
    • "BRAWLINGCOLOSSEUM" can be found written over the top of Commentator Waddle Dee's tent on the exterior wall of the Colosseum.
    • "THANKYOUMETAKNIGHT" can be found written next to Meta Knight's watch tower on the exterior wall of the Colosseum after Lab Discovera is cleared.
  • The Waddle Dee watching the tournament bracket is random and may change the color every time Waddle Dee Town is reloaded.
  • The random Copy Essences in the waiting room only pick Copy Abilities that are available and currently set in Waddle Dee's Weapons Shop.
    • Sleep is unavailable from the Copy Essences during The Ultimate Cup Z in the Colosseum, possibly to prevent infinite health recovery from Sleep and infinite stat boosts from Deep Sleep.
    • In speedruns, players may obtain Crash from the Copy Essences versus specific bosses. To maximize the chance of getting Crash in the waiting room, speedrunners need a dedicated save file which has the lowest possible number of abilities obtained. Besides Cutter, Fire and Sword whose blueprints (Chakram Cutter, Volcano Fire and Meta Knight Sword respectively) are guaranteed to be obtained in gameplay to unlock The Ultimate Cup Z, speedrunners only need Crash and Hammer (specifically Toy Hammer), and won't obtain the rest of the abilities in that save file. The chance of getting Crash from a Copy Essence in this case will be 20%.
  • For some reason, Elfilin is still captured in the capsule during the Leongar battle in the Ultimate Cup, and later won't appear with Kirby in the cutscene before the Fecto Elfilis battle.
  • If Kirby doesn't take the completion rewards and quits the game, the next time Kirby enters the game, Elfilin will notify him that he can still take them from Commentator Waddle Dee.
