|R-right... Well... Here's what we do! Kirby will be OURS!|
— King Dedede, The Revenge
The Revenge is the fifth and final stage of Revenge of the King in Kirby Super Star Ultra. It takes place inside Castle Dedede, culminating with the fight with Masked Dedede. Along the way, King Dedede can be heard conversing with Bandana Waddle Dee trying to stop Kirby from reaching him, then preparing for Kirby to reach him.
The stage begins with Kirby crashing into the castle using his Warp Star. From there, after some dialogue, Kirby can use the door to the right to progress.
In the next hall, Kirby meets the kings soldiers, who try to block his way.
The following room has Kirby fighting a Mr. Tick-Tock by order of the king.
Down the next hall, more enemies try to stop the unstoppable pink ball.
In the next room, a Grand Wheelie challenges Kirby. Dedede starts to panic as Kirby makes short work of it.
The next hall has yet more soldiers who get knocked over. Some pitfalls may make this hall more dangerous, however.
In the following room, King Dedede throws Phan Phan at Kirby.
The proceeding hall is taller than the previous ones, and has enemies patrolling Star Block platforms overhead.
The following room has Dedede calling the cavalry on Kirby, in the form of the Twin Fire Lions.
In the last hallway, King Dedede pardons his servant Waddle Dee from having to fight as Kirby draws near. Regardless, Bandana Waddle Dee fights for his king, though he is clearly no match. The door to Dedede's chamber lies just beyond (details in section below).
Intermittently, King Dedede and Bandana Waddle Dee can be heard by the player through dialogue boxes which pop up as Kirby makes his way through the stage. The following table lists off their dialogue in chronological order:
|Dialogue in The Revenge|
|Bandana Waddle Dee||Great King, Kabula
has been defeated!
What should we do?
|King Dedede||You mean Kirby is
coming here now?!
|Bandana Waddle Dee||Relax, Great King!
You must stay calm!
|King Dedede||R-right... Well...
Here's what we do!
Kirby will be OURS!
|King Dedede||First, test him...
Go, my servants!
|Bandana Waddle Dee||Ah, Great King! He
had an easy time!
|This might be a pun, since Kirby had just defeated Mr. Tick-Tock.|
|King Dedede||Argh! We'll see how
he likes the next!
|King Dedede||Unthinkable! He
beat that one, too?!
|Bandana Waddle Dee||Kirby's approaching
here, Your Majesty!
|King Dedede||Cursed pink lump!
I can't believe it!
|Bandana Waddle Dee||Great King, pull
|King Dedede||Third one's the charm!
Get him, Phan Phan!
|Bandana Waddle Dee||Fight!|
|Bandana Waddle Dee||Great King, he beat
Phan Phan, too!
|King Dedede||Grr! All right,
call the cavalry!
|Bandana Waddle Dee||Yes, Your Highness!|
|King Dedede||Enough, Kirby! Face
Twin Fire Lions!
|Bandana Waddle Dee||Go get him!|
|Bandana Waddle Dee||Oh no! He beat
everyone we have!
|King Dedede||Ack! Can't anyone
beat that guy?!
|Bandana Waddle Dee||Great King!
Kirby made it here!
W-what do we do?!
|King Dedede||(... We're done for...
Only one option...)
|King Dedede||...O-OK then, I guess
it's your turn.
|Bandana Waddle Dee||B-but, Great King,
I can't do it alone!
|King Dedede||...Fine, you can go.
You've been spared.
|Bandana Waddle Dee||Don't go, King!|
|King Dedede||(...I'm sorry.)|
|Bandana Waddle Dee||Great King!|
|King Dedede||(It's time for my
|King Dedede||Now you pay, Kirby!|
|King Dedede||You made it here...
Now, arm yourself!
|King Dedede||Our grudge will be
settled at last...
|King Dedede||Meet my powerful
|King Dedede||The brand-new Dedede Hammer!|
Enemies, mid-bosses, and boss
Boss: Masked Dedede
When Kirby first reaches the boss chamber, it is dark. Then, the stage lights up, with a Hammer on the floor, an offering for an honorable duel with Dedede. Once Kirby picks it up, King Dedede appears with his mask and jet hammer, and the fight begins. The fight is similar to the original one at the end of Spring Breeze, but Dedede has greater stamina, and his attacks are quicker and more forceful. He can also shoot flames and missiles from his hammer, and can spin and chase Kirby. He will get dizzy after spinning too long. The ceiling is an electrified grid that is dangerous to touch.
In the rafters, instead of a full house, only Bandana Waddle Dee remains, cheering King Dedede on whenever he lands a hit.
Once Masked Dedede is defeated, his mask breaks, and he gets sent flying out of the castle. With that, the end cut-scene plays, and the game is complete.
- Though many spin-off games before this would break this ground, this stage was the first time King Dedede had a full speaking role in a main series Kirby title.
