Role in Kirby: Planet Robobot

Spoilers! Notice: The contents of this article or section may contain spoilers.
The following may reveal important information about the game's storyline. If you do not wish to read it, skip ahead to the next heading.

Susie is first encountered in the Overload Ocean level. Kirby sees her for the first time in the boss chamber, where she introduces herself. Here, she explains that the Haltmann Works Company came to Pop Star specifically to exploit its natural resources. She declares that Kirby and his friends take their resources for granted, and this justifies her and her company in doing away with them. She then declares to Kirby that he must be destroyed, and hops into a mech suit to fight him.

Susie is seen again at the end of Gigabyte Grounds, singing praises to her boss, President Haltmann. She then brings in Mecha Knight, a subdued and mechanized Meta Knight to attack Kirby as the boss of that realm. She later releases another monstrosity to deal with Kirby at the end of Rhythm Route, a Dedede Clone.

Susie appears again at the end of Access Ark, in the Haltmann Works executive office, using an upgraded version of Mecha Knight to attack Kirby once again. When Kirby defeats him again, Susie is then dismissed by her boss, who takes over the situation from there. After he is defeated, however, Susie takes the opportunity to attempt to steal the Mother Computer, Star Dream from him. This fails, however, as Star Dream itself zaps her away, and then declares its intentions to erase history. Susie, begrudgingly, offers Kirby a suit of Robobot Armor and sends him after it.

When Star Dream is finally defeated, and Pop Star returned to normal, Susie, along with her mech suit, depart from Pop Star to an unknown fate.

Boss Fight

The following lists all of Susie's attacks in Kirby: Planet Robobot.

Susie uses a Spin Dash in Phase 1 of the fight.
Attacks - Phase 1
Attack Description
Spin Slam
Susie jumps high into the air, spins her mech's arms around, then comes crashing down, leaving stars on impact.
Cyclone Dash
Susie charges up, then slides across the stage several times, her mech's arms spinning rapidly as she does so. She leaves behind two stars when this attack concludes.
Bolt Shot
Susie jumps into the air, and fires several drill-shaped bolts from the bottom of her mech onto the arena, which explode shortly after landing. They can be inhaled before they explode.
Super Spin
Susie charges up, then performs a massive spin attack, uprooting several stars as the attack progresses.

Once Susie has lost roughly two fifths of her vitality, she summons a large conical platform to rise in the middle of the room, changing the arena into a looping circular one.

Susie detaches her mech's drones to chase Kirby in Phase 2 of the fight.
Attacks - Phase 2
Attack Description
Drone Strike
Susie's drones detach from her mech and home in on Kirby. These can be swallowed for the Bomb ability.
Cyclone Dash'
Susie attaches to the side of the platform, and then performs a whirling spin dash several times, tracing a spiral down the platform, and leaving stars when the attack concludes on the ground.
Spin Slam
Susie jumps high into the air, spins her mech's arms around, then comes crashing down, leaving stars on impact.
Drone Ballet
Susie deploys two drones, then hops down to the ground level, while the drones do the same. Then all three entities hop around the stage in synchronicity.

When Susie's vitality is nearly depleted, she causes the central platform to open up, revealing a large red cavity in the middle. From here, she attempts to strike at Kirby through this hole.

Susie crashes through the platform in Phase 3 of the fight.
Attacks - Phase 3
Attack Description
Drill Shot
Susie sends her mech flying through the hole in the central platform, crashing into the other side, and leaving stars on impact. This also causes damaging shockwaves to appear and spread out on both sides of her. This move is occasionally powered up further by the platform itself.
Drone Barrage
Susie fires several drones in pairs through the central platform to strike at Kirby. They leave stars and brief conflagration on the ground where they strike.

Once Susie is defeated, her mech explodes, leaving her unarmed. She gets up calmly, brushes dust off herself, scoffs, and summons a small helicopter device to carry her away, laughing as she disappears. This leaves Kirby to do his dance, and proceed to the next level.

Susie 2.0.

Appearance

Susie is possessed of a vaguely human body shape, though like both Magolor and Taranza before her, she has disembodied hands and a large head. Her face consists only of two large completely cyan-colored eyes and blushed cheeks, with no nose or mouth to speak of. She also has long magenta hair, held on the left side by a gold clip. Her outfit seems to consist mostly of a v-neck suit with a collar that extends all the way up past her head, and also forming a hood, with a long grey skirt below, which rounds out to a vaguely boot-shaped piece on the bottom. She looks like a robot, especially given her slick appearance, but at one point, she was organic, and had familial ties to President Haltmann. Her appearance now may have been due to the tampering of the Mother Computer.

Despite her appearance on the box art, Susie cannot fly or hover. Instead, she relies on a helicopter unit, which she summons whenever she needs to get away.

Trivia

  • Susie is voiced by Makiko Ohmoto, the same actress who voices Kirby in every game he's been voiced in.
  • It is heavily implied that Susie used to be President Haltmann's daughter, before an incident with the Mother Computer changed her. She no longer recognizes Haltmann as family.
    • In the Japanese version, however, Susie does remember Haltmann; but due to the president's repeated use of Star Dream, his memories of her had all-but vanished.
  • Since the release of Planet Robobot, Susie has often been used as a sort of presenter character when HAL makes statements regarding the Kirby series on social media. This is most evident on their 25th anniversary Twitter page.
  • Susie appears as a spectator in the Rocket Rumble minigame in Kirby: Battle Royale.
