Shadow Strike is the boss battle theme of Dark Meta Knight, first appearing in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror.


The original version from Kirby & The Amazing Mirror is composed by Hironobu Inagaki / Atsuyoshi Isemura of Dimps Corporation, both of whom are also the composers of The Amazing Mirror's soundtrack.

The track is composed in 6/8 time signature. While short, it's an intense battle theme.

Game appearances

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror

The original version (with no official track title) is used in the boss battle with Dark Meta Knight in both Radish Ruins (as ???, disguised as Meta Knight) and the Dimension Mirror (as Dark Meta Knight, his real identity).

The original version can be found as Music 13 in The Amazing Mirror's Sound Player.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe

In Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Dark Meta Knight returns as the boss Dark Meta Knight's Revenge in DededeTour! and The True Arena.

In the first phase of Dark Meta Knight's Revenge, the theme "Revenge of the Enemy" is used.

In the second phase of Dark Meta Knight's Revenge, his own theme finally plays, now rearranged by Jun Ishikawa and titled "Shadow Strike".

This version utilizes modern sound effects, featuring keyboard, brass instrumentation and electric guitar. It can be found as Track 123 in Triple Deluxe's Jukebox.

Dark Meta Knight appears as a playable Dream Friend in Kirby Star Allies. When he is summoned by the Dream Rod or when he is selected on the title screen of Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go!, a part of Shadow Strike plays as his jingle.
