30-second clip of Soul of Sectonia's final phase theme from Kirby: Triple Deluxe

 This box: view  talk  edit 

Soul of Sectonia is a secret boss from Kirby: Triple Deluxe, and makes her only appearance as the final boss of The True Arena in that game. She is the soul form of Queen Sectonia (specifically Flowered Sectonia), having been created when she ate several Miracle Fruits to survive and return to power after being nearly obliterated by Kirby. Defeating her destroys her for good.

Boss battle[edit]

This battle takes place in two distinct phases. Phase 1 has 999 HP and Phase 2 has 450 HP (for reference, a Star Bullet does 52 damage).

Phase 1[edit]

Near the start of the battle in Phase 1, and lasers are already being fired.
Taranza's final words and offering can no longer reach her ears. The former queen has become a pitiable husk in the throes of madness after losing everything. She has consumed the world, and all she has left to cling to is her vanity.
— VS Soul of Sectonia Special Page (Phase 1), Kirby: Triple Deluxe

The first phase is remarkably similar to the fight with Flowered Sectonia, and can be considered to be the unofficial DX form of that boss.

The following lists all of Soul of Sectonia's attacks in The True Arena. Note that most attack names are from official Japanese strategy guides while others are conjectural:

Soul of Sectonia's attacks in Phase 1
Attack Description
フローラルカノン
Floral Cannon
The eye stalks fire powerful lasers in multiple patterns, which leave Stars. The lasers may be fired in several waves. With four eye stalks, the lasers become harder to dodge and are more numerous.
ヴァインヴァインド
Vine Bind
Soul of Sectonia summons multiple vines that blink red after some time and rush towards Kirby. They leave stars when they collide with the ground.
バグズ召喚
Bugs Summon
Soul of Sectonia creates magic circles above the platforms from which a Lord Antler comes forth.
フローラルファイア弾
Floral Fire Bullet
The eye stalks fire fiery coconuts at Kirby in synchronization. They leave two Stars when they collide and can be inhaled and swallowed for the Fire ability. They may repeat this move multiple times in a row.
フローラルソード
Floral Sword
The eye stalks turn into swords and can attack Kirby with multiple forms including: horizontal strikes; diagonal strike; coming down from above and a few slashes in one direction. Each form leaves Stars in different ways. The eye stalks may perform different forms at the same time and repeat the move.
フローラルボム
Floral Bomb
The eye stalks each drop one big silver coconut that explodes either when Kirby collides with it or after a set time. If they get dropped into a bottomless pit, Kirby can inhale and swallow them for the Bomb ability.
フローラルカッター
Floral Cutter
The eye stalks start rotating quickly in the background and dive forwards facing upwards. Afterwards they attack in a similar manner from the foreground before finishing off from the background spinning facing toward the camera, making them harder to avoid. Each round leaves Stars, though the last one drops more than the others.
セントラルフラワー:ブロウ
Central Flower: Blow
After dealing enough damage to Soul of Sectonia, she roars and creates an updraft forcibly sending Kirby to another set of platforms before continuing the battle.
ジャイアントナッツ
Giant Nuts
The eye stalks transform into spiky balls and try to ram Kirby. When four eye stalks are used for this attack, they may try to come from the other side after the first charge and finish by coming from the background. They each leave one-two Stars after finishing. Alternatively, when four eye stalks are present, two of them may transform into spiky balls and bounce between the background and the arena while aiming at Kirby's position, leaving one star each afterwards.
Four eye stalk segments only  
フローラルスパーク弾
Floral Spark Bullet
Two eye stalks line up on opposite ends of the field and fire multiple electrical coconuts from above, which can be inhaled and swallowed for the Spark ability. They afterwards move to the middle and repeat, before finishing off on the side from which the other eye stalk began.
デスブルーム
Death Bloom
Soul of Sectonia calls all four eye stalks to her and charges a giant laser attack. After a few seconds she fires three or more lasers in a row, always briefly showing where she is aiming them. The last laser leaves three Stars.
フローラルレイ:デュエット
Floral Ray: Duet
The eye stalks group up in pairs of two and charge an electrical field between them. They begin with coming forward from the background. Afterward they form an 'X' shape and come on the same plane as Kirby and start rotating. They may change their rotation midway through. This attack leaves a lot of Stars.
フローラルタックル
Floral Tackle
The eye stalks position themselves in the background and ram into the foreground three times each, always leaving four Stars each.
Giant Nut Launch[conjectural title]
Soul of Sectonia calls all eye stalks to her and launches them back out in their spiky form. They grow bigger, wait for a short time, and then rush towards the other side.
フローラルレイ:カルテット
Floral Ray: Quartet
The four eye stalks position themselves in the shape of a diamond, one each in the background and foreground, along with two on the same plane as Kirby, and charge electricity between them. After a bit of time they collide and either slam upwards (if Kirby is above them or if they are already on the ground) or downwards (if Kirby is beneath them or if they are already at the top). The collision leaves four Stars, the slam leaves two. The attack repeats for a second time afterwards.

Phase 2[edit]

In the second phase, Soul of Sectonia flies free from the Dreamstalk, and becomes very hard to hit.
She's fed off countless hosts and now cannot remember her true form. A voice called out to help her, but it has since fallen silent. Before the night ends, she must be given her eternal beauty sleep.
— VS Soul of Sectonia Special Page (Phase 2), Kirby: Triple Deluxe

In the second phase, Soul of Sectonia rips herself from the Dreamstalk and attacks one more time with extremely souped-up powers which disorient the player and create enormous amounts of stage hazards and attacks from older soul form bosses in the process, such Marx's Shooter Cutter and Drawcia Soul's Bound Pound/Deadly Sun. She can also summon Antlers like the original could.

The following lists all of Soul of Sectonia's attacks in The True Arena. Note that most attack names come from official Japanese strategy guides, while others are conjectural:

Soul of Sectonia's attacks in Phase 2
Attack Description
テレポート
Teleport
Soul of Sectonia teleports very rapidly during this fight, doing so around the background five times before initiating her Shooter Cutter attack.
シューターカッター
Shooter Cutter
After teleporting five times, Soul of Sectonia comes to the same plane as Kirby and unleashes four cutters, which can be inhaled for the Cutter ability, at once. She then teleports again and repeats this three times in total. Before she uses Shooter Cutter for the third time, she'll feint a few times by teleporting around on the same plane as Kirby before unleashing two waves of the attack. She afterwards makes a short pause where she is vulnerable.
スプラッシュラッシュ
Splash Rush
Soul of Sectonia transforms into a ball of paint and squeezes many smaller paint drops out of that ball, some blue, some pink. These then come raining down onto the stage. They can be inhaled. She may tilt to one side before squeezing the paint drops out, causing them to rain down diagonally.
バグズ召喚
Bugs Summon
Soul of Sectonia flies around and summons Antlers of various kinds while teleporting. She can summon one of the following: two Lord Antlers, two white and one Lord Antler, or two green and one red.
ヴァインヴァインド
Vine Bind
Soul of Sectonia summons multiple spiky vines that work the same as those in her first fight. They can come from the sides, from the top and from underneath the platforms. She may repeat this attack multiple times.
フローラルカノン
Floral Cannon
Soul of Sectonia summons multiple portals that all share a flower-like design to fire lasers in multiple patterns. The lasers leave Stars where they collided with the platforms.
デッドリーバウンド・サン
Deadly Bound Sun
Soul of Sectonia transforms into a giant fireball and turns the screen red-yellow. She then bounces around in the background and foreground before bouncing on the same plane as Kirby three times, each bounce there leaving one Star on each side. Afterwards she flies in from one side traveling across the stage before finishing off by rushing towards Kirby from the background three times, which leaves two Stars each. She starts using this attack once her health bar hits 40% or lower.

Upon defeat, Soul of Sectonia bursts in an extremely flashy energy overload and is literally annihilated in an explosion. This marks the end of The True Arena.

Music[edit]

Main article: Fatal Blooms in Moonlight
Main article: The World to Win

Like Flowered Sectonia, Soul of Sectonia Phase 1's theme is "Fatal Blooms in Moonlight", but Phase 2's theme is an alternative version of "The World to Win", with its sections arranged in a different order.

Trivia[edit]

  • In the Japanese version, the second phase's Special Page is written in first-person, from Queen Sectonia's point of view.[1] The trend of Special Pages for soul bosses being written from the antagonist's perspective would continue with President Haltmann in Kirby: Planet Robobot (through the battle with Star Dream Soul OS) and Magolor in Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe (through The True Arena's exclusive Magolor Soul battle).
  • Void Soul and Void from Kirby Star Allies can fire lasers like Soul of Sectonia does when she uses the laser attack, except Void Soul and Void use their eyes as the "gun," whereas Soul of Sectonia uses portals.
  • Soul of Sectonia has 1,332 base HP for Phase 1 and 600 for Phase 2, but because she is only fought in The True Arena (which features a ×0.75 health modifier), it is practically 999 and 450 HP respectively.
  • Soul of Sectonia is the only Soul boss to be called "Soul of X" in the English versions. This results in her name being abbreviated as "SOS", which is a Morse code commonly used as a call for help.
