Revenge of the King is the seventh and final main game in Kirby Super Star Ultra, unlocked after completion of Milky Way Wishes. It is a harder and longer version of Spring Breeze, with many enemies replaced with tougher counterparts. Bosses are also stronger, and Kabula, who was absent from Spring Breeze, is included as well. As a result, the mode has some similarities to the Extra Game of Kirby's Dream Land. Completion of this game is required to unlock The True Arena.


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.


The stages are played in the following order:

The Revenge Masked Dedede In order: Unlike previous iterations of Mt. Dedede, this stage includes much more of the castle.
