Revenge of the King is a main game exclusive to Kirby Super Star Ultra. It is a harder and longer version of Spring Breeze, with many enemies replaced with tougher counterparts, and the bosses all upgraded (and Kabula thrown in as well). It is unlocked when Milky Way Wishes is completed, and must be completed to unlock The True Arena.

Plot

King Dedede wants to get revenge on Kirby for the events of Spring Breeze and Gourmet Race, so he steals the Sparkling Stars again, musters his forces, fortifies his castle, and sends Kirby a challenge.[1] Kirby sets off to defeat him again by traversing the land and besting his minions. He collects the Sparkling Stars back along the way, using them to form the Starship and battle Kabula and gain access to the castle.

Once inside, Kirby charges toward the throne room, as King Dedede sends in the last of his minions in a desperate bid to stop the pink menace. As this happens, Dedede is having a running conversation with his closest soldier, Bandana Waddle Dee, who bravely defends his king despite being dismissed. Once Kirby reaches the ring, he battles Dedede, who has donned a mask and jet hammer for the occasion.

Once defeated, King Dedede is knocked out of his castle once more. He and the remainder of his Waddle Dees roam the desert in disgrace, in the knowledge that they simply cannot best Kirby.

Stages

The stages are played in the following order:

Stages in Revenge of the King
Stage Boss Mid-Boss(es) Notes
Purple Plants Whispy's Revenge
Illusion Islands Lololo & Lalala's Revenge
Crash Clouds Kracko's Revenge Unlike Spring Breeze, Kirby must defeat Grand Wheelie to leave the moon hidden room.
Mt. Dedede Sky Kabula None This stage is nothing more than a boss fight with Kabula using the Starship.
The Revenge Masked Dedede In order: Unlike previous iterations of this stage, it includes much more of the castle.

Trivia

King Dedede after his defeat.
  • Despite this game only appearing in Kirby Super Star Ultra, the copyright year still reads as 1996-2008.
  • The desert King Dedede and the Waddle Dees march through in the ending cut-scene is the same desert Kirby and Wheelie drive through at the end of Revenge of Meta Knight. The music is also similar to "My Friend and the Sunset", Revenge of Meta Knight's ending theme.
