- This article is about the final boss of Kirby Fighters, and should not be confused with Mirror-world Kirby, who is also referred to as Shadow Kirby.
Shadow Kirby is the final opponent in the single player mode of Kirby Fighters in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. He is a Kirby who, when faced, uses the same copy ability chosen by Kirby, and is battled in Another Dimension, with the theme playing.
Unlike the other opponents fought, Shadow Kirby has a single boss healthbar. He dramatically rises into the air and explodes when defeated.
In Kirby Fighters Deluxe, Shadow Kirby is no longer a boss. Instead, once Single Player is cleared on Very Hard difficulty, he is made avaliable to play as via color change. This is purely aesthetic, however, and has no effect on gameplay.
- The relationship between Shadow Kirby and Mirror-world Kirby remains unclear.
- In Kirby Fighters, if there is an item (such as a pineapple) under Shadow Kirby when he is defeated, the item will rise with him as well as explode with him.
