Chapter 7 of Revenge of Meta Knight is the last of seven chapters in this game-mode from Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra. In this chapter, Kirby heads for the helm of the Halberd as the crew evacuates to deal with Meta Knight directly. After defeating him in a sword fight and destroying the helm of the ship, Kirby hops onto a Wheelie to make his escape as an enraged Meta Knight tries everything he can to stop his rival from doing so.

Intro cut-scene[edit]

In the opening scene, Kirby flies around the Halberd as a huge hole is blown in the hull of the ship, then lands back on the deck to head for the helm.

Overview[edit]

The timer resets to 3000 as Kirby heads for the helm. The crew of the Halberd panics as Captain Vul abandons ship. The Meta-Knights, however, stay to try and get their revenge on Kirby. As they discuss this, Kirby makes his way through an auto-scrolling section past crumbling bridges inside the hangar.

In the next room, Kirby makes his way up the elevator where the Meta-Knights ambush him one more time. From there, Kirby has a choice between a few more abilities before reaching Meta Knight's cabin.

In the cabin proper, Meta Knight tosses a Sword to Kirby for an honorable duel. From there, the fight is on, as Kirby battles Meta Knight in the traditional manner. When the masked swordsman is defeated, his mask breaks, and he flees the scene. From there, the cabin explodes, and Kirby is sent tumbling to the final section.

With only 50 seconds left to escape, Kirby finds a Wheelie, and hops on it to flee the Halberd as it crashes. Meta Knight pursues, trying his best to slow Kirby down. Kirby cannot defeat Meta Knight in this phase, so he should focus on escaping. The stage ends as Kirby makes the leap off the ramp at the end of the causeway. The final cut-scene plays of the Halberd crashing, and Kirby riding off into the sunset, and the game is complete.

Dialogue[edit]

Intermittently, the Halberd crew can be heard by the player through dialogue boxes which pop up as Kirby makes his way through the stage. The following table lists off their dialogue in chronological order:

Boss: Meta Knight[edit]

Kirby is about to duel his masked rival once again.

As Kirby enters the duel against his masked rival, he is made to pick up a Sword on the ground with the helpful text "GET IT!" ("GRAB THIS!" in SSU) overhead. Just like in the corresponding fight in Kirby's Adventure and Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, Kirby cannot drop his sword during the fight. Once he picks it up, Meta Knight throws his cape aside and begins to duel with Kirby. While he is not quite as able to block Kirby's attacks as before, he does have much greater durability, and he has a few new moves. One of these allows him to conjure a giant tornado which can catch Kirby and throw him into the air before slamming him into the ground. As always, when Meta Knight is defeated, his mask breaks, forcing him to retreat.

Ending cut-scene[edit]

Once Kirby hops off the Halberd, he lands on a cliffside off the ocean to watch the ship crash into the water. After a moment, Kirby then rides off on his Wheelie down a desert road as the credits roll. Once enough time has passed, the next scene has Kirby and his Wheelie riding into the sunset, ending the game mode.
