Parallel Woods is a boss who first appeared in Heroes in Another Dimension of Kirby Star Allies.


The origin of Parallel Woods is told in the Japanese pause flavor text:

Parallel Woods was born from the spirits of numerous defeated Whispy Woods gathering in Another Dimension, which is similar to how Parallel Twin Kracko were born from Kracko's fallen fellows. Thus, the reborn parallel counterparts of Whispy and Kracko seek revenge on Kirby who has defeated them countlessly throughout the series.

Parallel Woods, Parallel Twin Kracko/Parallel Big Kracko, Parallel Meta Knight and Parallel Dedede are referred to as 異界四天王 (The Otherworldly Four Kings).

Physical Appearance

Parallel Woods is basically a pitch-black Whispy Woods with yellow eyes and a yellow mouth. Thus, his face resembles Meta Knight somehow.

Boss Battle

Parallel Woods appears in the following game modes:

Mode Level HP
(Star Bullet=520)
Heroes in Another Dimension Dimension I 14000 He appears as the boss at the end of Dimension I.
Guest Star The Three Mage-Sisters Level 1 14000 He replaces the Whispy Woods boss battle in the middle of Level 1.
The Ultimate Choice Soul Melter EX 10500 He appears in the 1st battle.

Parallel Woods fights very similar to both Whispy Woods and Yggy Woods, but is much tougher than either, with double health of Whispy and quicker attacks. When he shakes his canopy, both Gordos and Blados can fall from it, along with the usual fare of apples. His Air Bullets have slight homing properties, and will explode with fire on contact. He can inhale frequently and recover fast from tiredness.

In the second phase, his Air Bullets can split into three which fly out in a pinwheel pattern, and he drops apples every time he jumps.

Parallel Woods can still be set on fire if multiple allies attack him with Sizzle attacks, but this requires more Sizzle damage to achieve than on Whispy or Yggy.


Parallel Woods (Phase 2) and Parallel Big Kracko share the same battle theme. It is composed by Yuuta Ogasawara and titled 異空をかけた戦い[1] (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.


  • When Parallel Woods inhales, the Blados released by him still accelerate. While they keep spinnning and cannot move forward due to his inhale, they won't be swallowed. As his inhale stops, they will be able to move forward.
