— VS Magolor Soul's pause screen description, Kirby's Return to Dream Land
Magolor Soul is the final boss of Extra Mode in the game Kirby's Return to Dream Land, being fought after Magolor EX is defeated. He has a much more menacing appearance in this form than his old one, such as being more of a bluish-black color, and having a more elaborate crown with a spikier build. Additionally, while the original form only shows the eyeball in his mouth once the second phase begins, Magolor Soul shows it from the start. Most of his attacks in this form are the same as the ones he used in the second phase of his battle in the main game. However, they now do more damage or look different, such as his Deadly Needle attacks now having thorns and being done in different locations. He keeps his previous attacks of using his own dark versions of the Super Abilities like in the original battle, but now Magolor Soul can use a new attack that combines the attributes of the Grand Hammer and Snow Bowl powers.
Magolor Soul also appears as the final boss in The True Arena of Kirby's Return to Dream Land.
Compared to his main game counterpart, all of Magolor Soul's attacks are souped up, and he has a few new ones.
|Attacks - Magolor Soul|
Magolor Soul opens with this move only if Kirby still has Ultra Sword from the last fight. He sends a shock wave that immediately removes the ability and destroys it. This attack deals no damage but does deal knockback and can cause other Kirbys present in battle to lose their abilities.
This is Magolor Soul's second attack only if Kirby still had Ultra Sword from the previous fight. Magolor Soul opens a black hole in an attempt to suck Kirby or his friends in, all the while causing the entire background to swirl around it. If Kirby is caught, he will take massive unavoidable damage.
|Juggle Conjure EX|
Magolor Soul conjures, then juggles random enemies, some with Copy Abilities, he then tosses them at lethal velocity at Kirby. More enemies than in the Main Mode. Always used after Black Hole. The first enemy will always carry the ability Kirby ditched for the Super Abilities in the previous battle.
|Deadly Needles EX|
Magolor Soul conjures rifts at various positions, which shoot out spikes. Faster and with more patterns than in the Main Mode. Can be done either once or three times in a row.
|Magic Spheres EX|
Magolor Soul conjures and tosses orbs of black energy from varying positions. These can be deflected or inhaled. More of them than in the Main Mode.
|Rift Beam EX|
Magolor Soul fires a laser beam into a rift, which then systematically fires across the entire stage and air, leaving stars on its last strikes. Very hard to dodge.
|Portal Ram EX|
Magolor Soul travels into a rift, then exits one on the stage in an attempt to ram Kirby, then going into another rift to do it again.
|Another Dimension EX|
Magolor Soul jumps into the background and draws a stencil, the solid parts of which transpose onto the stage as a wall of pain. The shapes are more complex and leave less open space.
|Super Beam EX|
Magolor Soul fires a giant laser beam that covers the entire stage, creating stars where it hits. Much faster than in the Main Mode.
Magolor Soul slams a giant icy hammer into the ground, creating a shock wave similar to Kirby's Grand Hammer, creating icicles that fall from the top of the arena, and making the floor icy for a long period afterward.
|Ultra Sword EX|
Magolor Soul takes out two black swords, and swings them one at a time in a manner similar to Kirby's Ultra Sword. They leave stars where they hit. He then finishes by swinging them both at once, with the only safe zone being the very middle of the stage.
|Monster Flame EX|
Magolor Soul conjures two dark fire dragons, which he directs across the stage, leaving stars in their wake. Compared to the Main Mode where the dragons attack from horizontal positions, the dragons in Extra Mode attack from vertical positions.
|Flare Beam EX|
Magolor Soul charges up, and then flies around the stage in an orb of dark energy, while another empty orb does the same, similar to Kirby's Flare Beam.
Magolor Soul jumps into the background and flips the screen orientation, making it more difficult for the player to discern direction correctly.
*Most attack names are conjectural.
- When Magolor Soul uses his version of Ultra Sword, his swords resemble the Galaxia, Meta Knight's sword.
- Magolor Soul is the only Soul boss in the series that can be fought in more than one mode, those being Extra Mode and the True Arena. The others are exclusively fought in one mode. Drawcia Soul is only battled at the end of Story Mode, Marx Soul, Soul of Sectonia, and Star Dream Soul OS are all fought only in The True Arena, Void Soul is fought exclusively in The Ultimate Choice on Soul Melter difficulty, and Chaos Elfilis is exclusively fought in the Colosseum in The Ultimate Cup Z.
- Because of Magolor Soul's appearance in Extra Mode, the only boss exclusive to this game's True Arena is Galacta Knight.
No damage fight against Magolor Soul at the end of Extra Mode.
