This article is about each of Magolor's upgradeable attacks and abilities. For the stages named after them, see Category:Stages in Magolor Epilogue: The Interdimensional Traveler.

Magolor's Magical Skills are a mechanic in Magolor Epilogue: The Interdimensional Traveler in Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe that allow Magolor to enhance his abilities. There are twelve different skills Magolor can get with some needing to be unlocked through collecting Fruit Fragments. The twelve skills include: Magic Sphere, Upward Magic Sphere, Levitation, Health, Magic Barrier, Trickery, Magic Bomb, Magolor Surge, Magolor Cannon, Deadly Needles, Dimensional Vanish, and Black Hole. While most of the skills are attacks to increase Magolor's combo, some are more utility based such as Health and Levitation. Magolor starts the game with only his Magic Sphere attacks for damage, but he unlocks the rest through progression, allowing for more combo potential. At the start he also has access to Levitation, Health, Magic Barrier, and Trickery, but he does not gain many other utility skills throughout the game.

Magolor's skills are not very powerful upon gaining them, but they can be enhanced through the use of Magic Points. All skills may be leveled up at least once, but also have a max level that increases once the Rampaging Doomers are defeated. Each level-up takes a higher amount of Magic Points than the last, but Magolor will be able to get higher combos throughout the game with these upgrades. Most skills do not level up with linear progression (such as making an attack deal more damage each time), but instead upgrade different aspects of the power, such as gaining a new attack and increasing range of an attack. Trickery in particular has a different effect for each level up, sometimes increasing movement speed or increasing the combo time. If certain skills are upgraded enough, they can also unlock challenge stages where Magolor must use the enhanced ability.

List of Skills[edit]

Magolor has a variety of skills he can use and upgrade. The following sections include all of these upgrades and skills in detail. Upgrades in italics are only obtainable after defeating the Rampaging Doomers.

Magic Sphere[edit]

Magolor uses his Magic Sphere to hit a switch.

Magic Sphere is Magolor's default attack, used by just pressing the B/Y button. It starts out as a single small sphere with low damage and range, but it can be upgraded to travel further, and to be able to use Revolution Flame, which is a charged version of the attack. It starts as having a maximum of six upgrades, but after defeating the Rampaging Doomers it gets nine possible upgrades. The following is a list of upgrades Magic Sphere can gain.

Adds a new attack, Revolution Flame, which allows Magolor to fire an attack with flaming spheres by pressing and holding the attack button and waiting even longer before releasing. This attack has flaming orbs swirl around each other in a quick manner that combos everything in its path. It has a large charge time though.
"If I keep charging, I could make a Revolution Flame (hold B/Y even longer before releasing) that melts ice...and torches marshmallows."

Other quotes
"I can't boost this any further for now, but there's plenty of potential. I'll throw some ideas out there and see what happens..."
"So much power! This attack might even be a match for a certain spherical someone..."

Upward Magic Sphere[edit]

Magolor uses Upward Magic Sphere to destroy some Star Blocks.

This attack is very similar to Magic Sphere, but it instead goes upward instead of forward. Despite being so similar, the two upgrades follow different upgrade paths, and can be used together for different combos. At the start of the game, the upgrades only go up to level four, but after beating the Rampaging Doomers it gets six. The following is a list of upgrades Upward Magic Sphere can gain.

Upward Revolution Flame attack
4
1800 KRtDLD Magic Point sprite.png
By holding the attack button and then releasing, Magolor will fire some flaming orbs that travel upward before stopping to swirl around each other and explode allowing for huge combo potential,
"Attacking above me with Upward Revolution Flame (Up + press and hold B/Y, then release) would be super handy. I do like to aim high..."
Required to open the Ordeal Door to Pyred Dimension - Upward Magic Sphere Stage.

Unlike the regular Magic Sphere upgrades, this path completely skips the Revolution Orbs attack and goes straight to Revolution Flame.
More range

Makes the range of Upward Magic Sphere attacks higher, allowing them to travel further before disappearing.
"Hm. I should make my attacks fly even higher. With my skill, they might keep soaring forever!"
More powerful Upward Revolution Flame
6
2500 KRtDLD Magic Point sprite.png
Upward Revolution Flame becomes extremely strong, gaining another swirling ball with increased speed and range.
"If I made my Upward Revolution Flame (Up + press and hold B/Y, then release) a TON more powerful...no skies would be safe from me!"
Other quotes
"I can't boost this any further for now, but I'll come up with something eventually. Just have to think uppity thoughts..."
"So much power! I could use this to attack and rule over a floating kingdom in the sky...if I wanted to, that is."

Levitation[edit]

Magolor uses his levitation to get past some fire balls.

Levitation is Magolor's ability to fly. This allows Magolor to jump over larger gaps and dodge enemy attacks. This is one of the few linear upgrade paths in the game, with each upgrade just being more flight time with varying increases. The maximum amount of levels Levitation gets at the start of the game is four, with it being able to go up to six after defeating the Rampaging Doomers. The following is a list of upgrades Levitation can gain.

Other quotes
"I can't boost this any further for now, but I'm definitely not done yet. Just need to get my head out of the clouds..."
"So much power! I'm finally flying high again! Now I can soar through endless skies with...my friends..."

Health[edit]

Image of Magolor's health bar at level 5.

Health is the most basic and linear skill in the game, only consisting of an increase in Magolor's health stat by about 1/5th of the health bar each upgrade. Magolor's maximum health starts at about half of the health bar, but can be increased to have a whole extra health bar over the first health bar, indicated by a green health bar over Magolor's original blue health bar. The maximum levels before defeating the Rampaging Doomers is six, but it is increased to nine once they are defeated. The following is a list of upgrades Health can gain.

Other quotes
"I can't boost this any further for now, but there must be a way to make me even tougher! Just need the right idea to hit me..."
"So much power! I've surpassed my own limits. Surprising, considering how things were going before... Guess I'm a real tough guy now!"

Magic Barrier[edit]

Magolor uses the Magic Barrier to avoid damage from some Gordos.

Magic Barrier allows Magolor to block attacks (L/R) without taking damage. Level one of the skill gives Magolor a very weak block which still makes him take a bit of damage when hit. The second level gives Magolor a barrier that lets him avoid damage which becomes the level one block after five hits. The third level is unlocked after defeating the Rampaging Doomers, and it gives Magolor's barrier a counter attack when hit. This is one of the few skills in the game to have only a few levels, as it starts with one upgrade and only gains a new one late into the game. This upgrade is definitely important though, as using Magolor's guard without the upgrade can be dangerous, and can sometimes lead to even more damage taken if not blocked. The following is a list of upgrades Magic Barrier can gain.

Magolor gains the ability to use Magic Counter, which deals damage to enemies that attack him while he uses Magic Barrier.
"I'll cast Magic Counter too. Then if my Magic Barrier gets attacked, it'll attack back. Way to stand up for yourself, Magic Barrier!"
Other quotes
"I can't boost this any further for now, but my barriers could definitely be even stronger. Just need to get past this creative block..."
"So much power! Now I can protect everything I care about...and everyone else too, I guess."

Trickery[edit]

Magolor can upgrade Trickery to drop food from defeated enemies, as seen here.

Trickery is the most unique of every skill, as it does not focus on one specific thing to upgrade, but instead upgrades something different almost every time it is leveled up. Most of these upgrades buff Magolor's basic skills, such as movement speed or combo time. This makes Trickery usually one of the most useful skills to upgrade because of the many uses it can have. Trickery's max level starts at six, but goes up to nine once the Rampaging Doomers are defeated. The following is a list of upgrades Trickery can gain.

More Magic Energy
7

This is the most expensive upgrade in the entire game, and is also a reference to HAL Laboratory.
Other quotes
"I can't boost this any further for now, but there's still more room for Trickery. Just need to think up new kinds of trouble to cause..."
"So much power! With mischief this mighty, I could create an entire amusement park full of fun attractions and devious challenges..."

Magic Bomb[edit]

Magolor uses some Magic Bombs to destroy a bomb block.

Magic Bomb is the first unlocked skill Magolor gets, obtained by beating Magolor Epilogue - Opening Stage. This gives Magolor the ability to throw bombs beneath himself. These bombs explode after a while, or on contact with an enemy. The upgrades of Magic Bomb let Magolor create more bombs, and even let him conjure larger ones too. These bombs are very good for combos early in the game, but they become less useful later when Magolor gets more abilities. Magic Bomb's max level starts at four, but it is increased to six once the Rampaging Doomers are defeated. The following is a list of upgrades Magic Bomb can gain.

"Maybe I could unleash 2 bombs at once...Why not? I can always conjure more, and blasting stuff is fun!"
Required to unlock an Ordeal Door to Pyred Dimension - Magic Bomb Stage.
Mighty Magic Bomb attack
4
2200 KRtDLD Magic Point sprite.png
Magolor can use the Mighty Magic Bomb attack, which lets him throw a giant bomb that creates a large blast when exploding.

Three bombs at once
5
2200 KRtDLD Magic Point sprite.png
Magolor throws three bombs instead of two, all at different angles in front of him.
"Unleashing 3 bombs at once? Sure, why not! That would blast all of my enemies in one go. Hee hee!"
More powerful Mighty Magic Bomb
6
2500 KRtDLD Magic Point sprite.png
The Mighty Magic Bombs become extremely powerful. They explode and release exploding shockwaves that combo enemies
"If I make my Mighty Magic Bombs (Up, then Down + B/Y) a TON more powerful, it'll be way harder for enemies to get away from their explosions!"
Other quotes
"I can't boost this any further for now, but there must be ways to make it stronger... Normally, I'd be bursting with ideas!"
"So much power! Feels like I've perfected my pyrotechnics. This much firepower could make for a flashy fireworks show in the future..."

Magolor Surge[edit]

Magolor uses Magolor Surge to get though a gate.

Magolor Surge is possibly one of the best combo tools available to Magolor, obtained after defeating Electricky Dooter. It allows Magolor to dash quickly with a windy effect while catching and dealing damage to enemies in his path. Its upgrades allow it to be used multiple times in a row, allowing for even more combo potential. Before defeating the Rampaging Doomers, the max level is four, but once they are defeated the max level goes up to six. The following is a list of upgrades Magolor Surge can gain.

2
500 KRtDLD Magic Point sprite.png

Extra dash
3
1500 KRtDLD Magic Point sprite.png
Magolor can use a second dash during his first, comboing enemies even more.
"I should try to activate a second Magolor Surge while I'm already in the middle of one. That would really speed this whole thing up."
Surge Burst attack
4
2800 KRtDLD Magic Point sprite.png
Magolor can use Surge Burst which allows him to explode during Magolor Surge, launching enemies.
"I bet I could add on a Surge Burst (A/B during a Magolor Surge). First I'll ram 'em, then I'll slam 'em. Hee hee hee…"
Another extra dash + Directional dashes
5
2800 KRtDLD Magic Point sprite.png
Magolor can use three dashes in a row, and can change his direction anywhere in-between dashes.
"Doing 3 Magolor Surges in a row sounds like a pretty good idea. I bet I could aim it in a few new directions too!"
Stronger Magolor Surge
6
3000 KRtDLD Magic Point sprite.png
Magolor Surge becomes much stronger, letting it hit enemies from farther away.
"Y'know what? I think I'll treat myself to a waaay stronger Magolor Surge (Dash + B/Y). Then I'll tackle a bunch of enemies all at once!"
Other quotes
"I can't boost this any further for now, but I'm close to figuring it out... Feels like my mind is racing!"
"So much power! I'm so fast it's frightening. There's no danger I can't outrun now...except the kind I cause myself, I suppose. Hee hee."

Magolor Cannon[edit]

Magolor uses his Magolor Cannon to clear the way while comboing some enemies as a bonus.

Magolor Cannon is the first of the two attacks in the game to require the Magic Meter, which is covered later in this article. This attack allows Magolor to fire a giant laser beam which combos all enemies that are hit many times before launching them away. This attack is best used in an area with a lot of enemies, as there Magolor can get the most value out of the attack. This attack does require a full Magic Meter to use, however. This skill only gets a few upgrades in the game, and is unlocked once Electricky Dooter is defeated. It starts with a max of two levels, but it increases to three once the Rampaging Doomers are defeated. The following is a list of upgrades Magolor Cannon can gain.

Other quotes
"I can't boost this any further for now, but there's room to grow. Just have to maintain a cannon-do attitude!"
"So much power! With an attack this fierce, I could be a big, bad boss again...maaaybe..."

Deadly Needles[edit]

Magolor uses Deadly Needles to hit some bomb blocks.

Deadly Needles is one of the harder to use attacks in Magolor's skill set. It requires the use of the Down, Up, and B input, which can be difficult to pull off in a pinch. It can, however be useful againsted bosses, especially ones that are mostly stationary. The needles themselves will hit enemies multiple times before disappearing, allowing for a little bit of combo potential. Deadly Needles are unlocked after defeating Fiery Puffer for the first time. Its starting max level is four, but is increased to six once the Rampaging Doomers are defeated. The following is a list of upgrades Deadly Needles can gain.

Other quotes
"I can't boost this any further for now, but it definitely could be stronger. Just need to point myself in the right direction..."
"So much power! I never imagined such a spike in the strength of my, uh, spikes. I could use this to take over all the terrain I want!"

Dimensional Vanish[edit]

Magolor uses Dimensional Vanish to get some Magic Points.

Dimensional Vanish is a very useful tool to have. Before being obtained, Magolor has a regular air dodge like every other character - with Dimensional Vanish, Magolor can move during the air dodge and gain large amounts of invincibility, but if used too often before touching the ground, the move will let him stay invisible for shorter and shorter durations. In combination with Magic Barrier, Magolor can dodge most attacks with these two skills alone. This is a skill that can only be upgraded a few times, as it only starts with one upgrade going up to two, but it gets a max of three upgrades once the Rampaging Doomers are defeated. The following is a list of upgrades Dimensional Vanish can gain.

Magolor can disappear for longer, allowing for more time to get away from attacks.
"What if I stay hidden for even longer? Hee hee! I'm so sneaky!"
Required to open an Ordeal Door to Poseiblu Dimension - Dimensional Vanish Stage.
Easier to hit enemies

Makes it easier to hit enemies when coming out of Dimensional Vanish. It is difficult to combo out of this, however, so Magolor must be careful if he wishes to combo.
"Aha! I bet I can make it easier to damage enemies when I reappear. First I'll hide, then I'll hit 'em with an explosion!"
Other quotes
"I can't boost this any further for now, but if it was even more powerful...then I could, um... Oh, shoot. Thought just vanished."
"So much power! Better stop here. If this attack gets any stronger, I could end up warping to other worlds! Ooo, scary."

Black Hole[edit]

Magolor uses a Black Hole to suck up some blocks for a key.

Black Hole is the final skill obtained in Magolor Epilogue, being obtained after Hydriath's defeat. To use it, it requires the use of a full Magic Meter, and is the second of the two skills to use the Magic Meter. When Black Hole is used, it hits all enemies around itself and combos them many times. This can be used instead of Magolor Cannon in many cases when there are not many enemies in a straight line, but there are instead enemies grouped across a vertical space. Black Hole is not directly better than Magolor Cannon, but is just an alternative that can be used instead in some scenarios. Black Hole only gets a single upgrade when first unlocked, meaning its max level is two prior to the Rampaging Doomers' defeat, which adds a third upgrade. The following is a list of upgrades Black Hole can gain.

Unlocked after defeating Hydriath.
Hits more times

"I bet I could fit a lot more hits into each attack with this move. Any enemies that get sucked up would have a reeeal bad time…hee hee."
Required to open an Ordeal Door to Locandra Dimension - Black Hole Stage.
Larger Black Hole

Black Hole becomes even larger, allowing it to hit more enemies.
"If I make my Black Hole attacks super huge, no one will be able to escape me! Muahaha!"
Other quotes
"I can't boost this any further for now, but there are definitely ways to make it stronger. Too many ideas swirling around..."
"So much power! If this attack gets any hungrier, it might slurp up entire dimensions!"

Magic Meter[edit]

Sprite of the Magic Meter flask found in some areas.

The Magic Meter is obtained after the defeat of Electricky Dooter, and is used for the Magolor Cannon and Black Hole attacks. Magolor can fill the Magic Meter by defeating enemies, and also by finding containers throughout the game that increase the meter to max when collected. Magolor can also upgrade Trickery to make his Magic Meter fill up more when enemies are defeated, allowing for more uses of Magolor Cannon and Black Hole. In addition, Magolor can check how full the Magic Meter is at all times by pressing X if it is not full.
