||This guy is kind of a big deal. He's the solid-gold leader of the Dethskullk gang. Next time you get trapped in a pirate ship, you're probably gonna need to get a key from this guy. Good luck with that.
— Figurine description of Dethskullk King from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
Dethskullk King is an enemy which made his first appearance in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. Like his normal counterparts, he floats around erratically, and upon spotting Kirby, slowly chases after him. They are hazardous even to attack, and the only way to defeat them is through the use of an Invincibility Candy; unlike his counterparts, he drops a Key upon defeat.
