Parallel Twin Kracko are a duo boss who first appeared in Heroes in Another Dimension of Kirby Star Allies. This boss is based on Twin Kracko in the main Story Mode, though it is fought at the start, and later transforms into Parallel Big Kracko.

Origin[edit]

Quote1.png All worlds—whether in another dimension or some far-flung galaxy—are bound by earth and sky. And where there is sky, there is Kracko! Made of fallen tears and the scattered mists of his enemies, Kracko roars with dark power. Quote2.png
— VS Parallel Twin Kracko (English)

The English localization of Parallel Twin Kracko's pause flavor text doesn't fully describe their origin. The following is the original Japanese text:

Quote1.png そこが 異空間アナザーディメンションだろうと、まった別次元べつじげん世界せかいだろうと、
天地てんちは かならず そこにある! そして、そこにそら
あるかぎり、モクモクとどろき 何度なんどでもまれる!
ナミダをながんでいった、どうほうたちつよ
はんぎゃくのこころが、異界いかいそらいまつどったのだ!
Quote2.png
— VS Parallel Twin Kracko (Japanese)

It describes that Parallel Twin Kracko was made of tears and rebellious hearts of Kracko's fallen fellows (どうほう達). In other words, the origin of Parallel Twin Kracko is similar to Parallel Woods: They were born from their grudges of being defeated countlessly by Kirby throughout the series. Strangely enough, Kracko's parallel counterpart was born as twins, being the stronger version of Twin Kracko instead.

Parallel Woods, Parallel Twin Kracko/Parallel Big Kracko, Parallel Meta Knight and Parallel Dedede are the "Four Otherworldly Kings" as described in the Japanese and Chinese versions.

Physical Appearance[edit]

Parallel Twin Kracko and Parallel Big Kracko have 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.

The two parallel twin Krackos are as big as the original Kracko and his duplicate were during his own second phase.

Boss Battle[edit]

Parallel Twin Kracko appear in the following game modes:

Mode Level HP
(Star Bullet=52)
Notes
Heroes in Another Dimension Dimension II 800 They appear as the boss at the end of Dimension II.
Guest Star The Three Mage-Sisters Level 4 800 They replace the Kracko boss battle at the end of Level 4.
The Ultimate Choice Soul Melter EX 600 They appear in the first half of the 4th battle.

Parallel Twin Kracko possesses both the exact same attacks and fight in the exact same way as Twin Kracko on the Gabbel Moon; the only difference is that they deal more damage. Their Twin Waterfall attack can still be frozen by Blizzard-element attacks or eletrocuted by Zap-element attacks.

Both Parallel Krackos attack in a fixed order on loop as follows:

  1. Twin Waterfall x3
  2. Twin Enemy Drop
  3. Twin Dancing [W motion]
  4. Twin Lightning Rain
  5. Enemy Drop
  6. Twin Beam [starting on one side and then moving to the other]
  7. Twin Dancing [regular tackle]
  8. Twin Waterfall
  9. Enemy Drop
  10. Twin Dancing [ground swoop]
  11. Twin Lightning Rain [green lightning bolts]
  12. Twin Beam x2 [stationary in two positions on the arena each]
  13. Enemy Drop
  14. Twin Dancing [W motion]
  15. Twin Dancing [regular tackle]
  16. Twin Dancing [ground swoop]

When Parallel Twin Kracko is defeated, the two thunderheads merge into one and become Parallel Big Kracko, continuing the boss battle.
