Music for the second phase of the battle with Phantom Forgo Dedede in Kirby and the Forgotten Land

 This box: view  talk  edit 
Forgo Dedede was formed when Leongar gave the already-controlled king a mask to further cloud his mind. He was then tasked with guarding the only entrance to Lab Discovera. This phantom copy, based on memories of his terrifying turn, is somehow even stronger and more dangerous than the original!
— Figure description from Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Phantom Forgo Dedede, titled Illusory Primal Nemesis, is a more powerful illusory form of Forgo Dedede which appears as the boss of Forgo Zone in Kirby and the Forgotten Land, and can also be fought in The Ultimate Cup Z in the Colosseum. Phantom Forgo Dedede looks and fights largely the same as its real counterpart, but has a different color scheme, now sporting teal skin with a purple coat with cyan fluff and magenta feathers and belt, and eyes that match those of Fecto Forgo in its "Invasive Species" form. The color of its mask also matches this general color scheme.

Attacks[edit]

Phantom Forgo Dedede has all of the same attacks as its normal counterpart, but it attacks significantly faster and some of its attacks have new properties. It also has a few new attacks, and has more health than Forgo Dedede, having 960 HP in phase 1 and 1,080 HP in phase 2 when fought in Forgo Zone and 640 HP in phase 1 and 720 HP in phase 2 when fought at the Colosseum. It takes 0.2X damage during phase transitions and transitions to the second phase once its first phase health bar hits 12 HP in Forgo Zone or 8 HP in the Colosseum.[1] Unlike in the main game, many of Phantom Forgo Dedede's attacks cause the arena to tilt or partially sink into the lava.

The following lists all of Phantom Forgo Dedede's attacks (attack names are from the Kirby and the Forgotten Land Perfect Support Guide). Attacks in italics are only used in the second phase.

Attack Description Variants
メルティトルネイド
Melty Tornado
Phantom Forgo Dedede starts spinning through the air like a tornado, trying to hit Kirby as it passes by while spiraling outward, submerging parts of the stage in lava. It is left dazed for a while after the spin. Phantom Forgo Dedede always starts the battle with this attack.
ワイルドたたき
Wild Pound
Phantom Forgo Dedede starts slamming its hammers while chasing after Kirby. Each slam leaves a Drop Star behind and creates flame pillars.
ワイルドスタンプ
Wild Stamp
Phantom Forgo Dedede jumps three times and slams the ground hard with its hammers each time, creating pillars of flame that weakly home in on Kirby and leave Drop Stars behind when they dissipate. This move is usually done right after "Wild Pound".
ワイルドハンマーブーメラン
Wild Hammer Boomerang
Phantom Forgo Dedede throws its hammers in a twirling motion and they proceed to spin around the arena in curved paths.
ワイルドデデデジャンプ
Wild Dedede Jump
Phantom Forgo Dedede immediately follows-up with three big leaps into the air, creating a shockwave each time it lands and leaving Drop Stars behind. The last jump is a big spinning slam.
ワイルドハンマー投げ
Wild Hammer Throw
Phantom Forgo Dedede jumps into the air and tosses its hammers at Kirby, creating more to toss at him in rapid succession, which create lingering puddles of lava on impact. This move is usually done right after "Wild Pound."
ワイルドトルネイド
Wild Tornado
Phantom Forgo Dedede starts spinning through the air like a tornado, trying to hit Kirby as it passes by, and leaving a trail of lava as it goes. It does this charge three times in succession, then is left dazed for a while after the third spin, leaving lots of Drop Stars in its wake.
スーパーヴォルカニック・ウィンター
Super Volcanic Winter
Phantom Forgo Dedede leaps into the background, and a series of meteors fall onto the arena, with the last one being particularly large and causing the arena to partially sink for a long while.
ワイルドタックル
Wild Tackle
Phantom Forgo Dedede charges at Kirby three times. After the third charge, it has to stop to catch its breath and leaves two Drop Stars behind. Phantom Forgo Dedede may perform one Beast High Jump instead of charging a third time.
ビーストビートドラム
Beast Beat Drum
Phantom Forgo Dedede slams its fists into the ground multiple times, jumping around while doing so, creating pillars of flame with each strike. After this attack concludes, Phantom Forgo Dedede is left exhausted for a brief moment.
ビーストハイジャンプ
Beast High Jump
Phantom Forgo Dedede performs five belly slams that leave lava puddles on landing, with the last jump being a particularly high one. After this attack concludes, Phantom Forgo Dedede is left exhausted for a brief moment.
ビーストハウル

Phantom Forgo Dedede howls, causing lots of enemies to appear and attack Kirby. This can include Primal Awoofy, Buffahorn, Balloon-Meister, Sir Kibble, Blade Knight, Poppy Bros. Jr., Bernard, and/or Orabiroo.
ビーストすいこみ
Beast Inhale
Phantom Forgo Dedede begins inhaling, trying to draw Kirby in. If Kirby is captured, he will take heavy damage before being spat out again. If Kirby doesn't get sucked up, Phantom Forgo Dedede is left panting for several seconds.

It's entirely possible to skip the second phase altogether by using abilities like Space Ranger + ★, as that can do enough damage to defeat Phantom Forgo Dedede.
