|It's said that Necrodeus has imbued some greedy pig with his dark powers. That sounds like a recipe for disaster.|
— Daroach referring to Skullord, in Kirby Mass Attack
Skullord is a Boss from Kirby Mass Attack. He serves as the boss of Volcano Valley, and is fought again in Necro Nebula and Survival Rush. Skullord wears a giant flaming skull and has a pig's nose and stubby feet, who makes his watch and commands the Skull Gang from atop the volcano. Defeating him breaks the gang's hold of the Popopo Islands.
|Don't underestimate the Skullord that rules this area. That pig has gotten too big for his britches. His lava bombs are too hot to handle. Catch them in the middle of that container. If you don't have the container, you'll have to smash 'em out of the sky directly. Don't let your guard down when he retreats into his volcano. Hop right into an autocannon to chase that piggy boss. Once there, aim another autocannon at him before it counts down to zero. You'll have to aim quickly...or else!|
— Daroach, in Kirby Mass Attack
The fight with Skullord takes place in rounds, with two distinct phases per round. In the first, the Kirbys have to dodge Skullord's attacks from afar by catching his boulders - preventing them from breaking the ground beneath the Kirbys' feet. Once this is done, the Kirbys take a Cannon and fire into Skullord's head, giving him a concussion. The Kirbys then need to hit the concussion a number of more times to deal damage.
- Skullord isn't actually undead. He was once a "greedy pig" (probably a Buufuu), but was granted special powers by Necrodeus.
