Goldon & Silvox are a duo boss who made their debut in Kirby Star Allies.

Overview

Goldon & Silvox are very similar to Pon & Con, and can be considered a harder version of them. They look much the same, but they are not trussed up in armor, instead having metal bodies with golden and silver fur. They can be found in Story Mode on Mareen Moon in Far-Flung Starlight Heroes, and can also be encountered in Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go! and The Ultimate Choice on higher difficulties.

Boss Battle

Goldon & Silvox fight in a very similar manner to Pon & Con, and also carry their children in tow. Each of Goldon & Silvox has has 240 HP in Story Mode and Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go!, 180 HP in The Ultimate Choice's Fiery Showdown-Soul Melter, and 275 HP in The Ultimate Choice's Soul Melter EX. (For reference, a Star Bullet does 52 damage.)

When Goldon & Silvox's total health is below 60%, they will enter the second phase and take 0.2× damage during the shifting. During the second phase, the arena changes to a much larger one with shutters in the middle. These shutters are meant to keep Kirby and his friends from crossing the middle of the stage, but they can be destroyed by attacking them.

When both Goldon & Silvox are defeated, they will crash into each other, making a metal clashing sound. Then, they will explode and vanish.

In Soul Melter EX of The Ultimate Choice, Goldon & Silvox have a new special page in their pause menu flavor text.

The following table lists all of Goldon & Silvox's attacks in Kirby Star Allies. Attacks in italics are used in the second half of the fight only:
