You see it now... don't you? Anyone who interrupts our revival ceremony... we must kindly ask that they... PLEASE DISAPPEAR FOREVER!
— Hyness, Kirby Star Allies


Hyness is the principal villain in Kirby Star Allies, serving as the penultimate boss in Story Mode. He is the mad priest who worships Void Termina, and leads his cult from the fortress world Jambandra, where his dark god was sealed in ancient times. Known as the Officiant of Doom, Hyness is a venerable wizard who conceals himself in a white robe with long trailing sleeves and a veil that covers his face, such that only his beady yellow eyes can be seen. While his shape and motions would suggest he has limbs, these are never seen from under the robe, which makes it entirely possible that he does not have any. Hyness leads a host of subjects, the most prominent of which are The Three Mage-Sisters: Francisca, Flamberge, and Zan Partizanne. When his hood is removed, he is revealed to have a blue face, blue and yellow striped ears, and eyes that move independently of each other.

It is implied in the separate The Ultimate Choice - Soul Melter EX VS Special Pages of Francisca, Flamberge, and Zan Partizanne that Hyness saved their lives from doom. Since then, they look up to him with admiration and seek his guidance, a loyalty that is ultimately exploited by the crazed officiant.

Hyness is voiced by Shigeru Chiba, a veteran actor and voice actor.

Personality[edit]

According to an interview with Shinya Kumazaki in the Nintendo Dream magazine issue from June 2018, Hyness always had a wicked heart, but it's implied that he still saved the Three Mage-Sisters after they nearly died and took them in. The mages hold him in great respect as a result, even though he often treats them poorly. Despite that, he seemingly often apologized for forgetting Zan Partizanne's name, and even tried to warn her whenever his heart started to act crazy again, as implied in his phase two boss fight pause description in The Ultimate Choice. Moreover, the 14th post of the Kirby Star Allies Channel states that Hyness had forsaken his own heart and fell into darkness, becoming trapped in a spiral of loneliness and despair. Thus, he had changed for the worse.

Hyness is depicted as completely insane, with incredibly deranged mood swings. He fits the image of a demented cult leader or priest. When Kirby and his friends encounter him, he first talks calmly and somewhat eerily but then starts to become furious. He begins shaking his head and flailing his arms rapidly while talking very quickly. In his second phase, he starts making strange angry grunting and snorting noises and doing bizarre dances. His battle themes also seem to elaborate on his eeriness and insanity.

Game Appearances[edit]

Kirby Star Allies[edit]

Story Mode[edit]

Splash screen of Hyness in Kirby Star Allies
Hyness calls upon the power of the Jamba Heart in the intro cut-scene.

Hyness debuted in Kirby Star Allies, where he is first seen in the intro movie, beginning a ritual to activate the Jamba Heart. This causes the heart to shatter, scattering its pieces all over the galaxy. Though this was not known to Kirby at first, the shattering of the heart was in fact a mistake, as Hyness sends out the Mage-Sisters to retrieve the pieces and bring them back to Jambandra for a do-over. When Kirby and his allies eventually reach The Divine Terminus, they find Hyness watching over the heart as the last pieces return to it. Zan Partizanne tries to stop the Star Allies from interfering, but is defeated, and collapses before the altar. Seeing this, Hyness turns to face the allies himself, coldly kicking Zan out of the way for her failure. After delivering a very long and crazed rant at Kirby, Hyness proceeds to fight the Star Allies. Shortly into the battle, however, his hood gets knocked off, revealing his true face. From there, he uses the unconscious bodies of the three Mage-Sisters as weapons against Kirby, even forming his own version of a Friend Circle during the battle.

Kirby manages to defeat Hyness, forcing him to resort to extreme measures to revive the Jamba Heart. He tosses the three Mage-Sisters into the heart, then dives headlong into it himself as a sacrifice. This done, Void Termina awakens from his slumber, and Kirby has to defeat him using the Star Allies Sparkler. During the fight with Void Termina, Kirby and his allies climb inside the great beast. There they find Hyness and the Mage-Sisters wrapped in flesh cocoons. After dealing heavy damage to Void Termina's core, Kirby, his allies, and all four of the sacrificed devotees are expelled from the dark lord's body. After that point, Hyness and the Three Mage-Sisters are not seen again for the remainder of the story.

Dialogue[edit]

During his crazed rant, Hyness says a great deal which requires close inspection to understand (as the dialogue text scrolls too quickly to read in a timely manner). The full text for that portion is as follows:

We are the masters of a power driven to the far reaches of the universe, and we have but one desire! Can one such as you possibly fathom how dearly we have clung to this dream across the aeons? How could you! You couldn’t! Never ever ever! We who once faced those who were in such fear of our power that they sealed us away and banished us to the edge of the galaxy! US! As if THAT loveliness wasn’t enough, they tried to erase our very existence from history! RUDE! Only through our magic were we able to overcome their science and achieve great prosperity! We alone were responsible for stopping that repulsive nightmare of a galactic crisis, yet this is how you repay us! This won’t stand! It won’t be forgiven! It won’t be forgotten! Never ever EVER! Those who called us mad, are you listening? You left us at the edge of the galaxy to be forgotten, then went along your merry way, probably living somewhere pretty and peaceful! But know this! Your future is a farce! You have none! We, masters of a matter most dark, vow to be restored, as foretold in the book of legend, which everyone thought was just a fairy tale! It WASN’T! We have already obtained the vessel that contains our Dark Lord, and he will soon awaken and shower us in compassion! Look! The vessel of our Dark Lord is filling up even as we speak! Now the time for his greatness to enter our world has come! Welcome to a new history! A new age! The age of awesome! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DARK LORD! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

The contents of this rant have many implications lain therein, but since Hyness is a questionable character, and this information was presented so quickly, the words should probably not be taken at face value.

Boss Battle[edit]

Hyness shows his true face.
Hyness worships a deity of destruction whom he plans to bring back to life. However, a rite gone wrong has led to the dark power he needs being scattered across the galaxy. Now he seeks to gather this power at an altar. Stop him, Star Allies!
— VS Hyness (Phase 1) in Story Mode and Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go!
His once carefully concealed face now exposed, Hyness is on the rampage! Tossing the three unconscious sisters around like rag dolls, it’s clear he’s lost his grip on reality. It’s up to the Star Allies to bring an end to this nightmare, and save…everything!
— VS Hyness (Phase 2) in Story Mode and Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go!
Hyness did not fully grasp how to completely break the seal. All that was written about Void Termina in the ancient scrolls was the progenitor of darkness was vanquished by four heroes of yore, using four spears of the heart. After that, they were never seen again.
— VS Hyness (Phase 1) in The Ultimate Choice


Hyness's fight takes place at The Divine Terminus in Far-Flung Starlight Heroes, just after Zan Partizanne is defeated. It consists of two distinct sections. In the first, Hyness battles Kirby alone, using his magic to form orbs and elemental discharges. Once Hyness is nearly depleted in health, his hood gets knocked off, and he brings the Three Mage-Sisters in, sapping their life-force to replenish his own. From there, he fights while using their bodies as both weapons and shields. When Hyness is not using them to attack, the sisters orbit their master and will deflect Star Bullets that cannot penetrate objects, as well as other weaker projectiles. Attacking the Mage-Sisters will not damage Hyness.

The following lists all of Hyness's attacks. Attacks in italics are used during the second phase only. As Corrupt Hyness, Hyness may sometimes combine his first phase attacks.

Hyness' Attacks in Kirby Star Allies  
Attack Description
ジヤマ
Jam
Hyness tosses a series of black energy orbs out of his sleeves at Kirby, with slight homing properties. These create Recoil Stars if they hit the ground.

In phase 1 in Story Mode and lvl. 5~7 of The Ultimate Choice, he will throw sets of one orb each. In phase 2 of the same modes and phase 1 in Guest Star ???? and Soul Melter, he throws sets of two orbs. In phase 2 of Guest Star ???? and Soul Melter, he throws sets of three orbs.

ウンジャマ
Vun Jam
Hyness tosses a large energy orb at Kirby. Once it hits the ground, it splinters into three smaller orbs which splash outward.
ジャママジャーマ
Jam Again
Hyness summons a series of sharp magical spears, which fan out and strike everywhere except the middle of the arena. They can be swallowed or destroyed.

Later in the fight, Hyness can summon three sets of spears one after another.

ブリザ・ハローア
Blizzard Bonjam
Hyness summons several large icy Jambastion emblems across the arena, which freeze Kirby & his allies and leave stars afterward.
  • These emblems can be destroyed by Sizzle attacks.
  • In Guest Star ???? and Soul Melter, Hyness can do this attack twice in a row.
メラーガ・マダッム
Sizzle Jamblasted
Hyness causes fiery pillars on both sides to erupt from the floor, leaving stars in their wake. The middle under him is the safe zone.
バリカ・マダッム
Zap Jamblasted
Hyness strikes the ground with a powerful lightning bolt, which causes sparks to travel across the floor and leave stars. Always performed immediately after Sizzle Jamblasted.
デクふらし
Rag Doll Throw
Hyness throws each Mage-Sister at Kirby, causing crystals to form where they land. These crystals can be swallowed to gain certain abilities, depending on the type.
These crystals can also be destroyed by their respective weaknesses:
デクバット
Rag Doll Bat
Hyness grabs hold of one of the Mage-Sisters and swings her wildly at Kirby like a club before eventually slamming her down on the ground creating shockwaves. Each mage club can be stopped by the respective weakness.

Hyness can either use one Mage-Sister and swing her four times before slamming or use all three one after another; with the first two getting swung once before slamming and the last one getting swung twice before slamming.

デクころがり
Rag Doll Circle
Hyness forms up onto a Friend Circle with the Three Mage-Sisters and starts rolling frantically around the stage, leaving stars on occasion.
  • Both corners on the floor are the safety zone where the allies can't be hit (unless they are too big).

In the end, he will return to the middle and throw the Mage-Sisters to the ground, leaving himself stunned.

いけにえのかご
Sacrifice Cage
Hyness surrounds himself with the Three Mage-Sisters as shields. Then, he tosses energy orbs behind the shields, starting with two, three or four sets of small orbs and then one giant orb before repeating the cycle.
  • Hyness is invincible as long as he is hiding behind the shields. However, once he takes enough damage when exposed, the Mage-Sister shields can be destroyed, leaving him stunned.
Attack names listed are taken from Japanese guide books.

Heroes in Another Dimension[edit]

Splash card for Corrupt Hyness.
Hyness has fallen into a hole leading to another dimension. The darkness left its master, transforming into a giant Jamba Heart and swallowing him whole. Is there hope for escape? Friends in another dimension offer a sliver of hope...
— VS Corrupt Hyness (Phase 1)

In Heroes in Another Dimension, after opening every portal, Hyness transforms into Corrupt Hyness. He essentially looks the part of Hyness, but in a dark robe, and his face is black and red, rather than purple and yellow. Because the Three Mage-Sisters haven't found him yet prior to this battle, he summons three logs with the mage's costume as his weapons and shields when unhooded.

When Corrupt Hyness is defeated, Zan Partizanne finally arrives and calls his name, only to find him out cold. She then calls on Francisca and Flamberge, who are angered by the state he is in. Kirby then proceeds to fight The Three Mage-Sisters as a whole.

The ending of Hyness and the Mage-Sisters depends on how many Friend Hearts Kirby has collected:

  • If Kirby defeats the Mage-Sisters with 100 or more hearts, he will befriend the sisters, who then give Kirby a Warp Star. As Kirby leaves, a heart falls from it onto Hyness. He is then put back into his normal form, and sees the generals, who are delighted to see he is okay.
  • If beaten with 99 or less, the Mage-Sisters and Hyness are left unconscious as the screen fades to black.

The Ultimate Choice[edit]

Corrupt Hyness summons his 'generals'.

In The Ultimate Choice the boss endurance mode, Hyness is fought starting from the fifth difficulty level:

  • Difficulty 5 - Sizzling Threat: 9th boss (last)
  • Difficulty 6 - Fiery Showdown: 9th boss (last but one)
  • Difficulty 7 - Infernal Crisis: 11th boss (last but two)
  • Difficulty Secret - Soul Melter: 11th boss (last but two)
  • Difficulty Extra - Soul Melter EX: 11th boss (as Corrupt Hyness; last but three)

Super Kirby Clash[edit]

Hyness appears in Super Kirby Clash as a resident of Castle Village, appearing after Aeon Hero (Dark) is defeated. He also appears as a sticker his artwork from Kirby Star Allies. It is unlocked after clearing the "Tougher: Taranza" Party Quest.

Language[edit]

People of Jambastion and Jambandra have their own language. Some pause menu pages of VS Hyness give the translations.

Based on the translations, several people and places' names have some meaning:

  • Jambastion means "evil heart". (ジャマ/Jam comes from the Japanese word 邪魔 evil.)
  • The "Lor" from Lor Starcutter means "paradise".
  • Magolor's Japanese name, マホロア, has a similar pronunciation to マフォロア, which could mean "lie paradise", fitting his deceptive nature.
  • When Corrupt Hyness becomes unhooded, he says "VUNMAJICIOUSEVITIRIGGAMAPOP---!", which could mean "Very tasty ??? painful hope---!" (The meaning of EVITI is unknown, but it could be "to be.")

Music[edit]

In addition to the dialogue theme, Hyness has different boss battle themes for his two phases. All these themes are composed by Jun Ishikawa.

Dialogue Theme[edit]

The dialogue music of Hyness (as well as the map theme of Jambastion) has the same melody as the stage music of Friendly Field, but in a much slower tempo with a haunted bell tune.

Hooded Theme[edit]

The first battle theme of Hyness is titled 傀儡奉納くぐつほうのう[1] ("Puppet Offering"). It can be found as Track 109 in Star Allies Jukebox.

The first section of this theme has a slow tempo and a similar bell tune to the dialogue music of Hyness, but the later sections have very different melodies.

Unhooded Theme[edit]

Main article: La Follia d'amore

The second battle theme of Hyness is titled "La Follia d'amore"[1], which means "The Madness of Love" in Italian. It can be found as Track 110 in Star Allies Jukebox.

"La Follia d'amore" has a much faster tempo, featuring violin and glockenspiel.

Trivia[edit]

  • Aside from the huge nose, Hyness's face (particularly his ears) has an uncanny resemblance to the shape of Magolor's head.
  • In one official Twitter post, Francisca describes the nose of Hyness as "spiritual and amazing" (スピリチュアルでアメージングな鼻).
  • Hyness is the first boss in Kirby series history who replenishes his stamina bar during the fight. He does this by sapping energy from the Mage-Sisters after summoning them to give himself a refill.
    • Naturally, since he summons three logs dressed as the Mage-Sisters as Corrupt Hyness, he cannot siphon life from them here, so he is not healed.
  • Hyness' model had an orange, blue, and green recolor in the game's internal files from Version 3.0.0. and earlier, much like those of the playable Friend Helpers and Dream Friends. This suggests that Hyness may have originally been planned to be playable during the game's development.[2]
  • In Heroes in Another Dimension, Corrupt Hyness lies unconscious in the background during the boss battle against The Three Mage-Sisters. However, during said battle in Soul Melter EX difficulty of The Ultimate Choice, Corrupt Hyness is absent. Similarly, Hyness and The Three Mage-Sisters are not seen in the background of Void Termina's second phase in the Infernal Crisis difficulty and onward of The Ultimate Choice.
