Galactic Nova Nucleus (originally called Heart of Nova) is the second-to-last boss of Milky Way Wishes in the SNES game Kirby Super Star, and its Nintendo DS remake, Kirby Super Star Ultra. Before the short level preceding the fight, Kirby is given the Starship ability, and in this fight, he is inside the Galactic NOVA after it has granted Marx's wish. NOVA's heart is in the center of the background, and columns are orbiting around it. When one of the columns orbits near Kirby, he must shoot the sphere floating in a gap in the column. The spheres are of several different colors and shapes, and some of them float up and down if the gap is larger than them. When a sphere is destroyed, it will explode and make a much larger gap in the column, and after several are destroyed, the columns will reverse the direction they orbit in so that they come from behind Kirby. They never change their speed aside from when the direction is reversed. The only way to be hurt in this level is by touching one of the spheres, which does very little damage, or by being crushed between the edge of the screen and a column, which is an instant defeat. When Kirby has destroyed all the spheres, NOVA is destroyed, and Kirby flies away as the player sees it explode. After the fight, Kirby loses the Starship ability.

Kirby approaches the Nucleus using the Starship.
