Story Mode[edit]

Main article: Kirby Star Allies#Story

In the opening of Kirby Star Allies Story Mode, a mysterious hooded man, Hyness, failed to revive the Dark Lord in The Divine Terminus, located in their headquarter Jambandra. He ordered his three mages to recycle dark hearts, the pieces of the Jamba Heart splattered all over the universe. The mages arrive in Planet Popstar along with their mobile fortress Jambastion, where Kirby and his Friends would fight them for the first time:

Upon Zan Partizanne's first defeat, she destroys the Jambastion fortress but Kirby and his friends manage to escape. The mages then go to other stars in the universe to recover the remaining dark hearts.

The three mages would be fought again across the universe in Far-Flung Starlight Heroes:

Upon Zan Partizanne's second defeat, the hooded Hyness appears and fights Kirby and his friends. When Hyness is seemingly defeated, however, he becomes unhooded and reveals his true face, summons the three mages, and turns them into rag dolls to use as weapons and shields, continuing the boss battle.

Upon the final defeat of unhooded Hyness, he realizes they still don't have enough dark hearts to revive Void Termina, so he forces the mages to join himself and become the last sacrifices to their dark lord. It works and Kirby and his friends have to defeat the revived Void Termina in the final battle.

When Kirby and his friends enter the body of Void Termina after defeating his first phase, the Demon God Form, Hyness and the three mages are found trapped inside his core. Kirby and his friends defeat his first core and save the four from his body. Upon Void Termina's defeat, the whereabouts of Hyness and the three mages are unknown, but they are confirmed to survive.

— Pause screen description from The Three Mage-Sisters' fight

The Three Mage-Sisters are the final boss of Heroes in Another Dimension, right after Corrupt Hyness is defeated. This battle is an encounter with Francisca, Flamberge, and Zan Partizanne together at once. When paired up in this battle, they all wear special gold variations of their normal outfits and have black faces with red eyes, similar to when they are being controlled by Hyness.

Attacks[edit]

Each of The Three Mage-Sisters retain all of their attacks from their respective individual boss fights, and use them in more-or-less the same manner. During the battle, the sisters will move into play and perform their attacks in a tag-team manner, as one or two will hold back in the background while the other(s) perform their attacks. During certain instances, however, all three of them will be on stage together. This particularly happens in the opening of the fight's second phase, when all three of them converge to perform their largest attacks one-after-the-other.

During the battle, all three mage sisters share a common stamina bar, and are defeated simultaneously.

The following attacks the Three Mage-Sisters use during the battle are described below:

Dream Friend[edit]

The Three Mage-Sisters can become a playable Dream Friend to join Kirby's allies by getting the Happy Ending in Heroes in Another Dimension.

When playing as the Three Mage-Sisters, the player can switch between the three characters at will, which is different from Rick & Kine & Coo. The three mages share the same health bar, but each mage has her own moveset based on their attacks as bosses. The active mage on the field is indicated by the Blizzard/Sizzle/Zap icon beside their health bar.

  • Francisca attacks with her icy axe, ice-based magic and soda gun.
  • Flamberge attacks with her fiery sword and flamethrower. She cannot hover.
  • Zan Partizanne attacks with her electric spear, thunderclouds and lightning drums. Much quicker movement speed than the other sisters.

The Three Mage-Sisters can use an attack called Sister Circle, in which they form a Friend Circle and attack the full screen, similar to Copy Abilities like Crash and Festival. While very powerful, this attack does have a cooldown before it can be used again, similar to Chef Kawasaki's cooldown for Cook Pot / Souper Supper.

Like other recruitable mid-bosses, the playable Three Mage-Sisters are slightly smaller than their boss appearances.

Super Kirby Clash[edit]

The Three Mage-Sisters each have respective unlockable stickers that can be bought from Magolor's Shoppe. In addition, once Kirby has completed enough quests, Francisca and Flamberge can be found on a bench in Port Village, appearing to be talking. Much later on in the game, Zan Partizanne can be found in Castle Village, sitting on another bench by herself.

Kirby Fighters 2[edit]

The Three Mage-Sisters appear as stage hazards on the Jambastion Entrance Battle Stage. One of them will float into a corner of the stage and start attacking the players with their respective weapons, using movesets from their boss fights in Kirby Star Allies.

  • Francisca floats to the lower corners, then uses "Cisca Down", "Cisca Upper", and "Cisca Stroke", and finally finishing off with "Frozen Gelato".
  • Flamberge can either float to the upper corners and use "Berge Rush'" and "Berge Finish", or float to the lower corners and use "Oven Well-done."
  • Zan Partizanne can either float to the center of the stage and use "Lightning Lemonade", or float to the sides of the stage and use "Electro Eclair".

Additionally, Rare Hats based on the Three Mage-Sisters can be unlocked for Beam ("Francisca Style"), Sword ("Flamberge Style"), and Staff ("Zan Partizanne Style"), if the player has save data for Kirby Star Allies on the same system.

Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

The Three Mage-Sisters appear as a Support Spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, using their Story Mode villain illustration. Their spirit is ranked ★★ Advanced, and their skill is Battering Items ↑ with the cost of 1 slot. This skill possibly refers to either their own battering weapons, or them being used as battering weapons by Hyness during his unhooded boss battle.

In Adventure Mode: World of Light and Spirit Board, the Three Mage-Sisters' spirit possesses three female Robin and increases the power of their Special moves (which are all magic-based) during their Spirit Battle.
