The Greatest Warrior in the Galaxy


Clip of Galacta Knight's theme from Kirby Super Star Ultra


 This box: view  talk  edit 

Galacta Knight (referred to as Aeon Hero in Quests in Super Kirby Clash) is a powerful recurring boss in the Kirby series. He is also known as "The Greatest Warrior in the Galaxy". Galacta Knight greatly resembles Meta Knight, even being the same size, but sports key visual differences. His body is magenta in color, and the eyes behind his mask are red (magenta in Kirby Star Allies). His mask has a pointed cross-shaped visor on it instead of a horizontal slit. Unlike Meta Knight's bat wings, Galacta Knight has feathered wings. He fights with a magenta lance and a shield with a four-pointed star on it, much like the design of his helmet.

Physical characteristics[edit]

Galacta Knight resembles Meta Knight greatly in terms of physique and general movement and attack patterns. The primary difference is in his color scheme, as well as the details of his armor and weapon. Galacta Knight sports a primarily magenta body hue, only slightly off in color from Kirby. Notably, his feet are also magenta, which differentiates him from both Kirby and Meta Knight, whose feet do not match their body color. Galacta Knight's eyes are rendered as simple colored circles, which are either red or magenta depending on the game. What he looks like without his mask is simply unknown, since unlike Meta Knight, his mask has never broken in any scene.

According to a Miiverse post going over the winning drawing of the "Kirby: Planet Robobot Drawing and Screenshot Challenge", Galacta Knight was given "...an angelic, godlike look to contrast with Meta Knight’s bat-like wings".[1] He sports a fancy white mask with a pointed cross-shaped visor and two yellow horns. Like Meta Knight, he sports two pauldrons and greaves, though these have no emblem on them. To fly, he uses a pair of angelic white wings. He carries a magenta lance with a circular cross-guard on the hilt, though it resembles a standard sword due to its short length. He also carries a shield with a yellow four-pointed star-shaped emblem on the front and magenta markings. Galacta Knight makes good use of his kit as he battles, as he can fly freely, deliver rapid flurries with his lance, and block with his shield, even when moving.

In his official artwork for Kirby Super Star Ultra and the "Super Ultra Battle" Celebration Picture from Kirby Star Allies, Galacta Knight's body is depicted as blue/violet instead of magenta.

Kirby Super Star Ultra[edit]

Galacta Knight fighting Kirby in the True Arena of Kirby Super Star Ultra.

Galacta Knight made his debut as a surprise boss in Kirby Super Star Ultra. At the end of Meta Knightmare Ultra, Meta Knight meets Galactic Nova, who grants him one wish. Meta Knight wishes to fight the strongest warrior in the galaxy so that he may become stronger, so Nova unlocks Galacta Knight, who had been sealed away because of his immense power.

Galacta Knight's attack patterns are similar to Meta Knight's, but he makes liberal use of energy attacks. He often guards as well, which makes him invulnerable to damage in the process. He is also battled by Kirby in The True Arena. When on the ground, he hovers instead of standing most of the time. Unlike most bosses, which lose over half of their health when hit by a Mach Tornado, Galacta Knight loses only a small fraction of his health. This is due to Galacta Knight's resistance to "Crash-type" attacks, Mach Tornado being one of them. Final bosses in later titles tend to have the "Crash" resistance as well.

The following lists all of Galacta Knight's attacks in Super Star Ultra.

Galacta Knight's Attacks in Kirby Super Star Ultra

Kirby's Return to Dream Land[edit]

Galacta Knight encased in crystal, just before the fight begins in The True Arena of Kirby's Return to Dream Land.

Galacta Knight reappears in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. He is first seen in the Theater movie "Special Staff Credits" after the player completes Extra Mode, indicating his appearance in the rest of the game.

Galacta Knight is eventually fought as a surprise boss in the True Arena, between HR-D3 and Magolor EX. He is generally considered to be the hardest boss in that game, and appears nowhere else in it.

Galacta Knight fights in two phases, and has several new attacks in his arsenal, including summoning lightning bolts as well as firing lots of energy sword projectiles that bounce off the ground. He often guards as well, which makes him invulnerable from damage in the process. Unlike in Kirby Super Star Ultra, he stands and dashes on the ground in this game.

The following lists all of Galacta Knight's attacks in Return to Dream Land. Attacks in italics are used during the second phase only.

Galacta Knight's Attacks in Kirby's Return to Dream Land  
Attack Description
Overhead Slash Galacta Knight performs a single slash.
Triple Slash Galacta Knight slashes three times in a row.
Hyper Rush - Crescent Shot Galacta Knight performs multiple slashes and fires a crescent-shaped energy wave from his lance.

  • Hyper Rush (multithrust) cannot be guarded only in Return to Dream Land.
Triple Crescent Shot Galacta Knight fire 3 Crescent Shots in a row, usually in the second phase.
Spin Slash Galacta Knight requires charging to use this attack.

Twelve Energy Shower Galacta Knight flies to the background where he can't be attacked by Kirby. Then, he fires a shower of 12 Energy Swords that bounce off the floor and leave Recoil Stars on impact. When the shower is over, he returns to the stage.
  • Both corners on the floor are the safety zone where the Energy Swords can't hit Kirby.
Attack names are taken from Japanese guide book.

Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

In Kirby: Planet Robobot, Galacta Knight (here referred to as Galacta Knight Returns) is summoned as the final opponent for Meta Knight to face in the "Sword_Master.EXE" credential process (after Dark Matter Clone and Sectonia Clone) in Meta Knightmare Returns. Galacta Knight did not appreciate getting yanked from beyond space and time forcefully, so he immediately thanks his summoner, Star Dream, by slicing it along its base and causing it to topple over.[2] Meta Knight must fight and defeat him again, all the while dealing with his new and powerful arsenal. Once defeated, Galacta Knight is re-sealed, and sent back from whence he came. Galacta Knight is also faced by Kirby in The True Arena.

In the Japanese version of the game, Galacta Knight's pause screen description states that he is capable of bringing everything to ruin, and that he was sealed many times over the ages but never successfully destroyed.[3]

Galacta Knight's attacks are basically the same as in Return to Dream Land but with a few changes. He also hovers on the ground like his debut in Kirby Super Star Ultra. The following lists all of Galacta Knight's additional attacks in Planet Robobot. Attacks in italics are used during the second phase only. To check his full attack list, also see his attacks in Kirby's Return to Dream Land.

Galacta Knight Returns' Addtional Attacks in Kirby: Planet Robobot  
Attack Description
Spin Slash Galacta Knight can now also jump during Spin Slash. It can be guarded this time.
Glide Sword Galacta Knight now glides from the background plane to the stage plane at a much faster speed.
Rising Spine Galacta Knight still begins with this attack in the second phase, but now summoning lightning bolts for 5 rounds in a row instead of 3 in Kirby's Return to Dream Land.
Tornado Slash In the second phase, Galacta Knight's summoned tornado can travel between planes.
時界じかいだい斬閃ざんせん
Time-Border Great Slash Flash
Galacta Knight flies up and slashes the space to open a dimensional rift that connects to Another Dimension.
He flies off the stage so Kirby/Meta Knight can't attack him. Then, the rift fires a giant laser beam diagonally downward, leaving Recoil Stars on impact.
Twenty Energy Shower Galacta Knight upgrades his Twelve Energy Shower to fire a shower of 20 Energy Swords instead.
Attack names are taken from Japanese guide book.

Kirby Battle Royale[edit]

Galacta Knight Mask in Kirby Battle Royale

In Kirby Battle Royale, Galacta Knight Mask is one of Meta Knight's alternative Headgears. It is unlocked by scanning the Meta Knight amiibo.

Kirby Star Allies[edit]

Main article: Morpho Knight

In Kirby Star Allies, Galacta Knight is first seen during the Theater movie of Story Mode staff roll, "Kirby's Curtain Call", indicating his appearance. Later, Galacta Knight appears with the alias "Temporal Warrior" at the end of Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go! to serve as the final boss. However, before he gets the chance, the Butterfly lands on his lance, makes him vanish and absorbs his power, creating a new swordsman called Morpho Knight.

Galacta Knight's appearance and subsequent removal can be seen as a joke at the old warrior's expense, as his appearances were no longer a surprise. His Japanese alias in Star Allies, 時巡る戦士 ("The Warrior Who Crosses Time"), is a reference to the Planet Robobot remix of his theme (時巡る銀河最強の戦士).

Galacta Knight also appears in the Celebration Picture: "Super Ultra Battle".

Additionally, according to Shinya Kumazaki, Galacta Knight was considered as a Dream Friend for Kirby Star Allies, along with other characters such as Drawcia, Elline and Shadow Kirby, but ultimately wasn't chosen due to a rule that was established soon after, which excluded characters who first appeared in remakes.[4]

The Greatest Warrior in the Galaxy


Clip of Aeon Hero's theme from Super Kirby Clash


 This box: view  talk  edit 
The Greatest Warrior in the Galaxy appears as the Aeon Hero in Super Kirby Clash.

In Super Kirby Clash, Galacta Knight (now called Aeon Hero in Quests) appears as the last opponent in the game. He is summoned through a portal by Parallel Nightmare's Revenge as a last resort to defeat Team Kirby, but the angered warrior slays the wizard before engaging them. Just as before, Aeon Hero possesses immense magical power in addition to wielding a lance and shield, but this time, he has two alternate powered-up forms, referred to as Aeon Hero (Light) and Aeon Hero (Dark), which change his appearance somewhat. Additionally, just like other enemies in the game, Aeon Hero has been beefed up somewhat in size, making him an imposing figure.

Aeon Hero is faced in a total of four different Quests. His first appearance is in his standard form just after Parallel Nightmare's Revenge summons him. His second is in his Light form as the final boss of Story Mode, his third is a Party Quest in his normal form, and the last is the final Super+ Party Quest in his Dark form. When his Light form is defeated, Aeon Hero dissipates leaving a scattering of feathers, similarly to how Morpho Knight dissipates in Kirby Star Allies. When defeated in his Dark form, he is sealed back into the crystal and sent through a vortex back into the alternate dimension from whence he came.

General director Shinya Kumazaki explains the origins behind Aeon Hero as such:


Attacks[edit]

Aeon Hero's attacks are largely the same as they were in his prior appearances as Galacta Knight, though many have had updates to both appearance and function. To compensate for the increased number of his opponents, Aeon Hero relies more heavily on his big magical attacks, using his lance and shield less often.

The following are all of Aeon Hero's (and his Light and Dark forms') attacks in Super Kirby Clash. Note that attack names are conjectural:

Aeon Hero's attacks in Super Kirby Clash  
Attack Description Variants Notes
Triple Slash Aeon Hero slashes three times in a row. Aeon Hero (Dark) may do this attack twice in a row.
Down Thrust Aeon Hero jumps and thrusts down his lance when in midair, falling to the ground.
Piercing Slash Aeon Hero dashes while thrusting his lance.
Hyper Rush - Crescent Shot Aeon Hero performs multiple slashes and fires a crescent-shaped energy wave from his lance.
Spin Slash Aeon Hero requires charging to use this attack. After releasing his charge, he performs a horizontal spin slash.
Aerial Spin Slash Aeon Hero performs a large spin attack in the air with his lance and lands on the ground, creating a large shockwave that travels across the stage on landing.
Glide Sword Aeon Hero glides while thrusting his lance. He can do this on the stage, or from the background.
Energy Sword Aeon Hero fires several Energy Swords that bounce off the floor. These swords can vary in number and in direction.
Tornado Attack Aeon Hero jumps and spins himself as a tornado. If Kirby is hit by the tornado, he will be thrown into the air and take damage when crashing onto the floor. This attack cannot be guarded against. Aeon Hero may finish this attack with a slam that creates more tornadoes on impact, similar to Tornado Slash.
Revolution Sword Aeon Hero flies to the middle of the stage. Then, his lance fires a laser beam that rotates around the stage. When performing this move in his Light or Dark form, the laser will create a conflagration on the ground as it passes, which then explodes hitting every grounded Kirby after the laser stops.
Rising Spine Aeon Hero flies to the middle of the stage. Then, he summons several lightning bolts which strike in regular intervals and spacing. The pattern on these bolts can vary, as well as how many waves are called down.
Tornado Slash Aeon Hero requires charging to use this attack. After releasing his charge, he stabs his lance into the floor to summon several giant tornadoes that travel into the background. These tornadoes then spread out and seek a target Kirby. If Kirby is hit by the tornado, he will be thrown into the air and take damage when crashing onto the floor. This attack cannot be guarded against. The tornadoes may also sweep the arena several times as they pass. A single tornado may also be conjured which sweeps straight across the stage.
時界じかいだい斬閃ざんせん
Time-Border Great Slash Flash
Aeon Hero flies up and slashes the space to open a dimensional rift that connects to Another Dimension. He flies off the stage so Team Kirby can't attack him. Then, the rift fires a giant laser beam diagonally downward. Aeon Hero may perform this move twice in succession, conjuring the next rift as the first one is still firing. The Jamba Heart can rarely appear during this attack.
Twenty Five Energy Shower Aeon Hero flies into the background and conjures twenty five energy swords which rain down onto the stage at an angle. Aeon Hero (Dark) conjures magical spears in place of energy swords, which resemble the spears used to seal the Jamba Heart in Kirby Star Allies. The spears cannot be guarded.

Wii Kirby's Return to Dream Land

"With a theme song called "The Greatest Warrior in the Galaxy," you know this guy is serious business. Meta Knight does battle with him in Kirby Super Star Ultra. Also, he shows up in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, where he is the 13th boss you'll face in The True Arena." "With a theme song called "The Greatest Warrior in the Galaxy," Galacta Knight is not a foe to be taken lightly. Meta Knight challenges him to a duel in Kirby Super Star Ultra, and Kirby can face him in the True Arena of Kirby's Adventure Wii. In both cases, he's the formidable fighter you'd expect him to be."

Trivia[edit]

  • Galacta Knight is among the audience in the Kirby Master movies from Kirby's Return to Dream Land and Kirby: Triple Deluxe.
  • Notably, Galacta Knight has not yet appeared in the story mode of a main series Kirby game, and instead only appears in side modes. The one game where he appears in the main story, Super Kirby Clash, is a spin-off title.
  • Aeon Hero's Japanese name, 淵源を巡る英雄 (Hero Crossing the Origin), appears to be derived from the name of the song that plays in the final corridor of Soul Melter EX in The Ultimate Choice: 淵源を巡る回廊 (Corridor Crossing the Origin).
  • Prior to Super Kirby Clash, every one of Galacta Knight's battles was playable as Meta Knight. In Kirby Super Star Ultra, he is battled during Meta Knightmare Ultra; in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, he is battled in the True Arena, which is playable as Meta Knight after beating it as Kirby; in Kirby: Planet Robobot, he is battled during Meta Knightmare Returns; and in Kirby Star Allies, Morpho Knight is battled during Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go! as well as The Ultimate Choice at higher levels, which are both playable as Meta Knight.
    • Kirby: Triple Deluxe, a game that Meta Knight was notably absent from, also used a different character to fill his role. This may suggest that this was intentional.
