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. The Dethskullk King also carries a key around his neck. Touching the Dethskullk King will instantly K.O. Kirby or Waddle Dee, regardless of how much health they had at the time, so he should generally be avoided. The only way to defeat him is through the use of an Invincible Candy, thereby scoring 500 points (but no Point Stars), but also allowing Kirby to collect his key.

There is only one Dethskullk King in the entire game, appearing near the end of the stage The Haunted Ship.
