This glittering duo made their home on a backwater island on a certain planetoid, and they’ll viciously attack anyone who stumbles into their territory. Beware the furry fury of Goldon and Silvox!
— VS Goldon & Silvox

Goldon & Silvox, titled The Metal Heavies, are a duo boss who made their debut in Kirby Star Allies. 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[edit]

Goldon & Silvox fight in much the same way as Pon & Con, and also carry their children in tow. Both Goldon & Silvox 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. Both Goldon & Silvox cannot be defeated as they transition phases, as both their HP gets locked to 1 each until they finish roaring. This also applies to Pon & Con earlier in the game.

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 greater health and unique flavor text.

Fighting off treasure hunters is hard work, and these two dream of setting off on an adventure. Rumor has it they've built a raft…so why not leave?
"Because we'll sink! Can't you see we're made of metal?!"

  • Each shutter has 52 HP, and can be destroyed in one hit by Sizzle attacks.
Hidden Bomb Goldon & Silvox run to the shutters in the middle, then feint by planting a bomb where they would have come out and appear out a shutter and a different floor.
