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 ghostified version of Marx, mutated by the power of the destroyed Galactic NOVA. 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 Magenta instead of Purple. 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.

Battle Style

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
Octo Cutter
Marx Soul appears to teleport, but instead shoots out four cutters similar to Cutter Kirby's. He then repeats the attack.
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.
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.
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.
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 red and blue paint blobs. After disappearing, many similar damaging paint blobs fall from the ceiling, increasing in volume as the attack goes on.
Comet Souls
Marx Soul splits in half, creating red 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.



  • 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 SNES version.
  • When Marx Soul splits in half to do his black hole attack and paint attacks, it resembles Mirror Kirby doing his Mirror Body.
  • Magolor Soul is similar in many ways to this boss, and could be considered a spiritual successor.
