Mecha Knight+ is a Boss fought in Kirby: Planet Robobot, appearing as the boss of Access Ark. He is an upgraded version of Mecha Knight, which means to say that he is still Meta Knight under the thrall of the Haltmann Works Company. He now sports a red paint job, and fights in a very different manner to his original version.

Game Appearances[edit]

Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

After his initial defeat, Susie has Mecha Knight upgraded, and sends him in to deal with Kirby again at the end of Access Ark, inside the Haltmann Works executive office.

— Vs. Mecha Knight+ Pause Screen description in Kirby: Planet Robobot

The following lists all of Mecha Knight+'s attacks in Kirby: Planet Robobot. There is no 2.0 variant of Mecha Knight+, as he is instead replaced with Stock Mecha Knight.

Attacks - Phase 1  
Attack Description
Giant Swipes
Mecha Knight+ supercharges his sword to make it huge, then swipes three times at Kirby, leaving a star with each swipe.
Down Thrust+
Mecha Knight+ leaps into the air, flies into the background, then dives into the ground, leaving two stars on impact.
Giant Spin Attack
Mecha Knight+ moves to the center of the stage, and performs a massive spin attack with his sword, generating lightning from above and four stars in the process.
Flurry Sword
Mecha Knight+ spins his sword in a fan-like motion, then finishes off by firing a beam from it straight forward, leaving two stars when the attack concludes.
Mecha Knight+ re-positions by gliding across the stage.
Mecha Knight+ leaps into the air, then fires two missiles from his launchers. These can be inhaled and spat back.
Sword Spin
Mecha Knight+ jumps through the air, and performs a spinning sword strike, leaving a star when he lands.

When Mecha Knight+ is knocked down to half health, he flies into the background. The apparatus on his back extends into a giant clawed tail, and he resumes fighting.

Attacks - Phase 2  
Attack Description
Claw Strike
Mecha Knight+ charges, then smashes his claw tail into the ground, leaving two stars on impact.
Fury Swipes
Mecha Knight+'s claw tail delivers a rapid series of punches, finishing with a punch into the wall that leaves two stars.
Beam Turret
Mecha Knight+ grounds his claw tail, then lifts himself into the air. From there, he starts firing beams from his sword at Kirby. The beams leave stars on impact.
Claw Jump
While in turret form, Mecha Knight+ hops into the air, and lands somewhere else.

Once Mecha Knight+ is defeated, the claw tail explodes, and a moment later, Mecha Knight+'s mask breaks off as well, showing his face (which now has yellow eyes) briefly before he flies off.

Other Appearances[edit]

Mecha Knight+ is also fought in The Arena.

Mecha Knight+ has no 2.0 variant, but many of his attacks are incorporated into those of Stock Mecha Knight.


Main article: Vs. Meta Knight

Mecha Knight+'s Theme, titled 己が精神との闘い (Battle with the Spirit of Self) in the Japanese soundtrack and titled Inner Struggle in English, is a remix of Meta Knight's Boss Battle Theme from Kirby Super Star. It is reused in Kirby Star Allies when Meta Knight is fought on the Soul Melter difficulty of The Ultimate Choice.
