Marx Soul is a boss that appears exclusively in The True Arena of Kirby Super Star Ultra, serving as the game's true final boss. Marx Soul is a stronger, zombified 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 health (630) is also greatly higher than Marx's (350).

He can now turn into 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 Nova. His laugh is also different. After finishing off the demonic beast, he lets out a bloodcurdling screech, slowly splits in half while turning dark red (as well as his necklace) and explodes, destroying the entire arena in the process.


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.

  • Cannot be guarded at all, and can only be dodged by hovering or crouching.
Jester Ball Spit-Drop (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.
