Debut Game Kirby Super Star Ultra
Relative(s) Marx
 This box: view  talk  edit 

Marx Soul is a boss that appears exclusively in The True Arena in Kirby Super Star Ultra, being the game's final boss. He is a stronger, ghostified version of Marx, mutated by the power of the destroyed Galactic NOVA, and this version of Marx can be specified as a grotesque monstrosity. He fights the same as his un-mutated form, but his attacks are much stronger, and he moves in a faster, more chaotic manner. His defense is also greatly higher than Marx's. He can now make paint blobs that give the Paint Ability. He also is purple instead of lavender. His wings are different and he now has a necklace that appears to be made of parts from the Galactic NOVA. His laugh is also different. After finishing off the demonic beast, he lets out a bloodcurdling screech, slowly splits in half and explodes, destroying the entire arena in the process.

KirbyBuilding.png This article or section is under construction. Therefore, please excuse its informal appearance while it's being worked on. We hope to have it completed as soon as possible.

This table describes all of the demonic boss' attacks. Most are stronger, faster, and/or longer ranged versions of the original Marx's attacks, but some are unique to him.

Marx Soul's attacks
Attack Description
Shooter Cutter
Marx Soul appears to teleport, but instead shoots out four cutters similar to Cutter Kirby's. He then repeats the attack. These cutters can be either thrown or swallowed for the Cutter ability.
Grow Vines
Marx Soul flies off the screen, dropping six damaging seeds in random places in the arena. About a second later, thick rose vines spring up from each of the seeds' locations.
Shadow Uppercut
Marx Soul appears as a flashing circle on the ground that follows Kirby. After a few seconds, he springs up in an attempt to ram into Kirby.
Light Beam
Marx Soul assumes a strange expression, then attempts to fire an enormous, damaging beam out of his mouth. Cannot be guarded at all, and can only be dodged by jumping.
Ice Bomb
Marx Soul assumes a strange expression, following Kirby, then drops a bomb out of his mouth. After reaching Kirby's height, it explodes into two shockwaves that may freeze Kirby if not guarded or dodged. This bomb can be either thrown, or swallowed for the Ice ability.
Arrow Flurry
Marx Soul flashes, then releases hundreds of damaging arrows from his body.
Black Hole
Marx Soul splits in half, creating a black hole. If Kirby is sucked in, he is transported to an alternate dimension in which he takes massive damage. Cannot be guarded. Used as a surprise entrance attack.
Paint Rain
Marx Soul splits in half, creating magenta and blue paint blobs. After disappearing, many similar damaging paint blobs fall from the ceiling, increasing in volume as the attack goes on. This paint blobs can be either thrown or swallowed for the Paint ability.
Comet Souls
Marx Soul splits in half, creating magenta and blue comets. After a few seconds, the two comets fly in one after the other, including a sound effect that resembles Marx Soul's laugh, however the sound effect is more high pitched in the magenta comet.



  • In Milky Way Wishes, if the player looks closely a split second before Marx transforms into his first powered-up form, he can be seen looking extremely similar to Marx Soul. This is present even in the original Kirby Super Star.
  • When Marx Soul splits in half to do his Black Hole attack and paint attacks, it resembles Mirror Kirby doing his dash attack 'Mirror Body'. This is the same with original Marx's Black Hole attack.
  • Marx Soul is the first Soul Boss in Kirby main-series, the first one in the whole series being Drawcia Soul from Kirby: Canvas Curse which is a spin-off. Since then, the Soul Bosses in Kirby series would usually have similar attack patterns.
