Twin Woods are a duo boss who first appears in Kirby Super Star and its remake, Kirby Super Star Ultra. They resemble two Whispy Woods that are facing each other and whose canopies often overlap.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby Super Star / Kirby Super Star Ultra[edit]

The Twin Woods are first encountered in Revenge of Meta Knight after the Whispy Woods battle, and as the boss of Floria, the first area of Milky Way Wishes. The two also appear in The Arena.

The Twin Woods' strategy is similar to that of Whispy Woods, being able to drop fruit on Kirby, which can be inhaled and spat back, as well as blowing air at him. However, as Kirby has to deal with two bosses at the same time, attacks occur at a faster pace. Furthermore, in a similar manner to Whispy Woods in Kirby's Dream Land's Extra Game, they are able to make Gordos fall from their branches in addition to fruit, which Kirby cannot inhale and has to avoid. Capillers can also fall from their branches. The mere act of inhaling one will damage Kirby, so he has to avoid these too. On occasion, the Twin Woods also trade segments of themselves with the other twin, which can harm Kirby if he touches them while they are flying from one tree to the other.

As the Twin Woods are a duo boss, each individual member can be defeated separately. Defeating one twin renders it unable to blow air. Once both of the Twin Woods are beaten, the boss battle is won.

Kirby Fighters 2[edit]

In-game splash screen introducing Twin Woods in Kirby Fighters 2.

Twin Woods reappear in Kirby Fighters 2, being fought as a boss encounter a total of four times in Story Mode: The Destined Rivals. Unlike in Super Star, the two of them are separate twins and can move independently of each other. As a result, they lack some of their moves from their original game but gain some new moves too, based off the battles against Whispy Woods in Kirby Star Allies and the Kirby Clash games. Additionally, Twin Woods will vibrate and flash red when nearly defeated, much like enemies in the Team Kirby Clash series. Twin Woods are encountered in a distinct location which is not a selectable Battle Stage and has no name to distinguish it.

Attacks[edit]

The following are all of Twin Woods' attacks in Kirby Fighters 2. Note that attack names are conjectural:

Attack Description Notes
Drop Twin Woods drops Apples, Gordos, and/or Capillers from their shared canopy in random places. Gordos drop only in second encounter and beyond.
Giant Apple Drop Twin Woods reveals an apple in their shared canopy and channels energy in it to make it grow giant.
The apple then drops and bounces across the stage, flattening any fighter it comes into contact with.
In the third encounter and beyond, Twin Woods will grow two of these at once.
Air Bullet Twin Woods shoots out a series of Air Bullets in various patters, which can leave Recoil Stars on the ground.
Each tree takes turns shooting them out.
In subsequent encounters, Air Bullets may split in two upon reaching a fighter.
Burst Fruits Twin Woods lets down burning fruit on vines from their canopies.
If not destroyed, these will drop to the ground and leave conflagrations of fire for a while.
Used only in second encounter and beyond.
Stomp Jump One of the trees uproots and leaps into the air to land elsewhere, flattening any fighter it lands on.
During the second phase, both trees may jump simultaneously.
Used only in second encounter and beyond.

  • Although Floria is centered around changing seasons, the current season at the time of entering the boss fight in Kirby Super Star does not affect the look of the area where the battle takes place; it will always appear as autumn.
