This article is about the minor character in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. For the main villain of Kirby: Triple Deluxe, see Queen Sectonia.

The queen[1] is a minor character from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, acting as the sovereign ruler of Ripple Star.


The queen is shown to be easily frightened as demonstrated by her reaction to the Dark Matter invasion of Ripple Star: she panics until Ribbon discusses what to do with her. She is also shown to be somewhat clumsy, as when she bows in the bad ending, her glasses and crown briefly fall out of place (although this could perhaps be due to her being possessed by Dark Matter at the time).


The queen is rather unusual among her kind. She is a rather tall figure by fairy standards—standing at about Adeleine's height—with black hair and long pigtails, a slim golden crown, and a pair of rather large round glasses. She wears an outfit reminiscent of a Japanese sailor fuku with a long tie and a layered skirt; the sleeves are slightly too long, obscuring her hands. Though her wings are quite large, the queen does not fly like other fairies do, and instead remains on the ground.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards[edit]

In Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, the queen sends Ribbon off with the great crystal as Dark Matter takes control of Ripple Star. From there, the queen is possessed by Dark Matter, though this is not known to the heroes. In the bad ending, this fact is made apparent to the player when the queen glares menacingly at the camera after the heroes leave—but if all the Crystal Shards were collected, the reformed crystal zaps the queen and purges Dark Matter from her.

At the true end of the game, the queen and Ribbon award the heroes with crystal medals for defeating Dark Matter.

Kirby Star Allies[edit]

The queen makes a cameo appearance in Kirby Star Allies, where she is being drawn by Adeleine in the Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go! ending picture for the Wave 2 Dream Friends.


  • The Japanese Kirby 64 website's story outline refers to the queen as "the princess" ("お姫さま")[2]. This would suggest a retcon to the character's title between the publication of the website and the release of Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition, which was the first source that named her as a queen.
