Void using Deadly Sun in Kirby Star Allies.

Deadly Sun[Japanese title] is a recurring attack that is used by several characters and/or bosses in the Kirby series. It is often used by Soul-form bosses and is notable for being easy to spot its telegraph.

Appearance and function[edit]

When used, the boss travels to the background before suddenly catching fire and moving offscreen to the point and elevation at which it will reappear. It then streaks across the battlefield, usually horizontally, taking up roughly half of the screen as it does. It may also return from the other side to take up the other half of the screen.

Game appearances[edit]

The following table outlines in chronological order which games this attack appears in, which entity can use the attack, and any other pertinent notes.
