Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Spoilers abound! If you do not wish to read them, skip ahead to the next heading or find a different article.

In the story of Kirby's Return to Dream Land, Magolor commands Kirby to go and defeat Landia, as Landia attacked the Lor Starcutter, Magolor's ship, as Magolor arrived at Halcandra, along with Kirby. Upon Landia's defeat by Kirby, it is revealed that Magolor and Landia had a past conflict, which ended with Magolor fleeing to Planet Popstar, and only enlisted Kirby's help in repairing the Lor Starcutter to defeat Landia and help him obtain the Master Crown, which would give him the power to rule the universe. Landia, now consisting of four small dragons, then assists Kirby and accompanying friends, in chasing Magolor and the Lor Starcutter when Magolor enters Another Dimension to go and conquer Planet Popstar. Once Magolor and his mutation Magolor Soul are defeated, Landia, along with the now friendly Lor Starcutter, assists Kirby in returning to Dream Land.

As a Boss

In the second phase, Landia splits into four dragons. In this shot, it fires down on Kirby with all four at once.

Landia is faced as the boss of Dangerous Dinner. During the first phase of the fight, it fights as the whole dragon. During the second phase, it splits up and attacks as the four smaller dragons, and the dragon wearing the crown takes more damage than the other three.

The following lists all of Landia's attacks in the Main Mode of Kirby's Return to Dream Land. Attacks in italics are used in the second phase of the fight only.
*Attack names are conjectural.

Attacks - Main Mode  
Attack Description
Fire Shots Landia fires individual fire balls from its mouths that cannot be swallowed.
Triple Spin Strike Landia flies in close and performs three rapid spins, striking with its wings and its feet. The last strike leaves stars behind.
Dive Landia dives in a maneuver that cannot be ducked, leaving stars at the lowest point of the dive.
Fire Breath Landia breathes fire with two of its heads, covering much of the stage.
Gust Landia flaps its wings, creating a torrent of wind that pushes Kirby back, and also creates sharp gusts that can do damage and can't be swallowed.
Bomber Dragons Landia re-positions and fires downward repeatedly, covering a large area systematically. The first and last shots leave stars.
Volt Transfer Landia flies into a grid formation, and starts charging electricity between its bodies. Will either re-position or move about in a counterclockwise manner.
Quad Dive Landia dives each of its bodies across the stage, two at a time.
Fireball Toss Landia forms a large fireball and tosses it around to its other parts. The fireball then flies into the background, and crashes on the stage, leaving stars.

In Extra Mode, Landia EX's color is changed into purple, and its attacks are generally faster and cover more ground:

Attacks - Extra Mode  
Attack Description

Fire Breath EX Landia breathes fire with two of its heads, covering much of the stage. Landia also moves side-to-side while performing this move. Additionally, Landia may systematically use this move, then move to a different position and use it again.
Gust EX Landia flaps its wings, creating a torrent of wind that pushes Kirby back, and also creates sharp gusts that can do damage and can't be swallowed. Landia then circles around and performs this move again on the other side.
Back Dive Landia flies into the background, then attempts to ram Kirby.
Bomber Dragons EX Landia re-positions and fires multiple shots downward repeatedly, covering a large area systematically. The first and last shots leave stars. Additionally, other dragons will perform Dives while this is happening.

As an Ally

Landia tosses Kirby onto its back, to team up and take down Magolor.

In the level Another Dimension the stages encountered prior to the fight with Magolor are traversed riding Landia, in a side-scrolling shooter section.

Kirby: Planet Robobot

Landia appears as the penultimate and final boss of the Sub-Game Team Kirby Clash. He is described as a guardian angel, and has two distinct forms. The first fights more-or-less like Landia in Return to Dream Land. The second is Landia EX like the same EX form in Return to Dream Land. Once Landia is defeated in its EX form, the Sub-Game is complete.

Team Kirby Clash Deluxe

Landia

Landia reprises its role in Team Kirby Clash Deluxe this expanded spinoff title--its attacks and role in the story undiminished from before. He has been made much tougher in both its iterations, in order to provide more of a challenge for Team Kirby.

Landia EX

Landia EX serves as the fifth Ordeal, and defeating him completes the main game, queuing the credits.

Parallel Landia

Main article: Parallel Landia

Unlike the original Sub-Game, however, Landia EX is not the ultimate final boss. Bosses from the parallel universe invade the Dream Kingdom after the credits, one of them being Parallel Landia, the form in which Landia is presumably corrupted by the Master Crown.

Landia-themed equipment set for Sword Hero

Landion the sword and Landion Helm are the respective Rarity 9 Weapon and Armor for Sword Hero Kirby, sold at Magolor's Shoppe. Their designs are based on Landia the dragon itself.
