Parallel Big Kracko is a boss who first appeared in Heroes in Another Dimension of Kirby Star Allies. This phase follows from Parallel Twin Kracko, and he is much larger than his non-parallel counterpart.

Origin

Main article: Parallel Twin Kracko

Parallel Big Kracko is transformed from Parallel Twin Kracko merging into one after they are defeated, making their battle in the opposite order of that of the original Kracko and Twin Kracko. However, he may be Parallel Twin Kracko's true form.

Parallel Woods, Parallel Twin Kracko/Parallel Big Kracko, Parallel Meta Knight and Parallel Dedede are the "Otherworldly Four Kings" as described in the Japanese and Chinese versions. These versions also mention that Kracko's parallel counterpart was strangely born as twins first and that Parallel Big Kracko fights with the pride of being a gatekeeper boss since Kirby's Dream Land.[1]

Physical Appearance

Like Parallel Twin Kracko, Parallel Big Kracko has a much darker color scheme than Kracko. Their bodies consist of black clouds with red spikes around and yellow eyes with red and black pupils. However, Parallel Big Kracko has grown considerably bigger in size due to absorbing his duplicate.

Boss Battle

Parallel Big Kracko appears in the following game modes:

Mode Level HP
(Star Bullet=52)
Notes
Heroes in Another Dimension Dimension II 1440 He appears as the boss at the end of Dimension II.
Guest Star The Three Mage-Sisters Level 4 1440 He replaces the Twin Kracko boss battle at the end of Level 4. After he is defeated in his first phase, the two combine and grow larger than his original counterpart.
The Ultimate Choice Soul Melter EX 1080 He appears in the second half of the 4th battle.

Parallel Big Kracko primarily fights very similar to Kracko in that it swoops around the battlefield and unleashes electrical attacks. However, his large size makes dodging his attacks harder. Parallel Big Kracko also utilizes a variant of his bomb drop from Kirby's Dream Land (in the form of Pon & Con / Goldon & Silvox's fire bombs) and a new attack where he flies to the corner of the screen and creates a gust of wind pushing away from his body, while summoning small clouds from the background that drop lightning bolts.

Music

Parallel Big Kracko and Parallel Woods (Phase 2) share the same battle theme. It is composed by Yuuta Ogasawara and titled 異空をかけた戦い[2] (A Battle in the Distant Otherworld). It can be found as Track 189 in the Jukebox.

This theme is a rock remix of "A Battle of Friends and Bonds 2", the regular boss battle theme (full version) of Kirby Star Allies.

Trivia

  • Due to the battle order, Parallel Twin Kracko has double health of Kracko while Parallel Big Kracko has double health of Twin Kracko.
  • Parallel Big Kracko is the only boss of the four primary dimensions who bursts into nothingness after being defeated, with the other three being either subdued or forced to retreat. Despite this, it is unlikely that Parallel Big Kracko was actually destroyed, since he bears similarity to his normal counterpart, who tends to re-form again and again.
