|The fabric of spacetime has broken down, creating four rifts to another dimension. Each of these rifts leads to an unholy incarnation of a past foe—like Whispy Woods! The rotten, blighted arbor has been imbued with terrible new power!|
— VS Parallel Woods (English)
Parallel Woods is a boss who first appeared in Heroes in Another Dimension of Kirby Star Allies. He is the alternate counterpart to Whispy Woods and, like his normal counterpart is in Story Mode, is the first boss fought in Heroes in Another Dimension. He can also appear in The Ultimate Choice, replacing Whispy Woods himself and Yggy Woods.
The origin of Parallel Woods is told in the Japanese pause flavor text:
— VS Parallel Woods (Japanese)
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 appears in the following game modes:
|Heroes in Another Dimension||Dimension I||1400||He appears as the boss at the end of Dimension I.|
|Guest Star The Three Mage-Sisters||Level 1||1400||He replaces the Whispy Woods boss battle in the middle of Level 1.|
|The Ultimate Choice||Soul Melter EX||1050||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, enemies like Gordo, Blado, Burning Leo, Driblee and Jammerjab can fall, 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. Sometimes he drops fiery Burst Fruits that explode immediately when falling onto the ground, but these can be turned into healing food by Blizzard/Bluster/Splash attacks before they touch the ground.
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. Burst Fruits in this phase may include dropping the enemy Como.
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 (A Battle in the Distant Otherworld). It can be found as Track 189 in the Jukebox.
- When Parallel Woods inhales, the Blados moving left 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.
- Since Parallel Woods is pitch-black, if he's burned up by the Sizzle weakness, the scorch will be barely noticeable.
