Quote1.png No telling if it’s true, but according to the ancient scrolls, Void Termina may rise again in other forms depending on whether positive or negative energy is gathered. It seems this being of darkness will wander the galaxy until one day he is reborn into a new existence. When he returns, hopefully it will be as…a friend. Quote2.png
— Pause flavor text from Void Soul battle

Void Soul is a secret boss who is faced only in The Ultimate Choice, at the end of the 'Soul Melter' difficulty. He is a souped-up version of Void Termina's Final Core, and used to be the true Final Boss of Kirby Star Allies prior to version 4.0.0, which added his stronger form, Void to the game. Void Soul is titled as the Essence of Chaos in his splash text. Defeating Void Soul is required to complete The Ultimate Choice and attain 100% completion of Kirby Star Allies.


While he shares the same body plan with Void Termina's Core, Void Soul is cyan in color. He has dark blue lines coursing through his body, their pattern similar to a contour system. Blue dark spots move about his body, often forming faces, including one similar to Kirby, another like , and another that resembles Dark Matter. His dark matter form gives him a blue pupil, unlike Dark Matter proper.

Boss Battle[edit]

Void Soul is fought in a similar arena to his normal counterpart, and takes the place of Void Termina's fourth phase in his battle on 'Soul Melter' difficulty.

However, Void Soul's attack patterns are far more deadly and difficult to avoid, which compounds Kirby's reduced health in Soul Melter. He routinely uses attacks that can sweep or cover the entire stage, and can also cause the arena to flood with water. When he does so, Void Soul may also shock the water with huge electric lasers, dealing heavy damage to anyone submerged.

Similar to his normal counterpart, Void Soul can be damaged by directly tossing Friend Hearts at him. Void Soul has 1350 HP. His defense is also constantly changing as he uses different attacks.

The following lists all of Void Soul's attacks.

Void Soul's Attacks  
Attack Description
Circle of Friends[from internal data]
Instead of staying in the center only for his normal counterpart, Void Soul sends out 3 circular waves of blue-green energy in different locations. There are gaps on each wave for Kirby & Friends to avoid.
Any Friend hit by the wave will be converted against Kirby and other Friends. This can be undone by tossing a Friend Heart at the affected Friend.
Pleasant Dream[from internal data]
Instead of firing in 5 directions for his normal counterpart, Void Soul fires barrages of energy bullets in 3 directions but with faster rate of fire while rotating the firing angle. The bullets leave Recoil Stars on impact.
Shooter Cutter Void Soul gains this attack which originated from Marx. He fires 4 cutter boomerangs around himself for three rounds, which can be swallowed for the Cutter ability.
Full Smile
(internally known as Laughing Needle[from internal data])
Instead of poking needles on his own for his normal counterpart, Void Soul splits into four. The clones burst into laughter and their bodies poke needles to 8 directions, each needle leaving a star.
This resembles the Needle Form of Miracle Matter, although the needles are in the right spot (unlike in the original Void Termina's Core's version) and their launch timing is perfect with each other. Sometimes, Void Soul uses the original version, just like the original Final Core, however the water level rises before the needles come out and lower after the attack finishes.
Flood Void Soul floods the stage. This can be combined with Song Laser or Laughing Needle. (See there for more details.)
Loud Song
(internally known as Song Laser[from internal data])
Void Soul has two patterns of firing lasers, which cannot be guarded:

In the first pattern, he floods the stage with purple water. Then, he transforms into the Dark Matter-like form and fires an electric laser downward 2 times, electrifying the water to hurt anyone underwater. This is similar to how Dark Mind can fire a laser downward in his second phase.

In the second pattern, he fires lasers in the following order:

  • 3 lasers from one side of the stage, near the top.
  • 3 lasers from the other side of the stage, near the bottom.
  • 4 lasers from the background (up, left, right and down).
  • 4 lasers from the background (all in one row).
  • 8 lasers from the background (in two rows).

For the version that his stronger form uses, click Void.

(internally known as Deadly Bound[from internal data])
Instead of sprinting on his own for his normal counterpart, Void Soul splits into four to ram Kirby & Friends, leaving 2 stars on each side on impact.
This resembles Deadly Bound, the ball tackle of Drawcia Soul and other soul bosses like Soul of Sectonia. Just like with Full Smile, Void Soul's clones share their health with him.
Bon Appétit
(internally known as Mini Core[from internal data])
Instead of summoning only 2 minions for his normal counterpart, Void Soul summons 3 watery Dark Matter-like minions.
Each minion opens a black hole in their mouth while attempting to inhale Kirby & Friends. If successful, Kirby & Friends will take huge damage from their chewing.
The minions can be defeated in one hit by Blizzard and Zap augment attacks, and will disappear naturally if not defeated (each leaving behind a Recoil Star that can be used as ammunition).
Japanese attack names are taken from Japanese guide book. Some English attack names are taken from internal game files.

In Version 4.0.0, Void Soul attacks in the following order:

  1. Circle of Friends
  2. Pleasant Dream
  3. Shooter Cutter
  4. Full Smile
  5. Flood
  6. Loud Song
  7. Sprint
  8. Bon Appétit
  9. Loud Song
  10. Shooter Cutter
  11. Sprint
  12. Flood
  13. Full Smile

In Version 1.0.0-3.0.0, Void Soul's attack order was different. Void Soul is the first boss in the main Kirby series whose attack order has been changed due to a game update:

  1. Circle of Friends
  2. Pleasant Dream
  3. Shooter Cutter
  4. Flood
  5. Loud Song
  6. Sprint
  7. Full Smile
  8. Bon Appétit
  9. Loud Song
  10. Shooter Cutter
  11. Sprint
  12. Flood
  13. Full Smile

Defeating Void Soul causes him to flare up and explode in quite dramatic fashion.


  • Void Soul is called Soul of Nil in the Japanese version, derived from his previous form's Japanese name, Ende Nil.
  • Void Soul is titled 魂沌こんとん(soul chaos) in his Japanese/Chinese Boss Caption on the splash screen. It's a pun on 混沌/渾沌 (chaos) in both Japanese and Chinese.
  • The primary face which Void Soul displays is very similar to the face that displays at the beginning of its fight.
  • Void Soul is the first boss in the main Kirby series which can flood the arena with water.
    • His stronger form, Void can also flood the arena with water. Unlike Void Soul who floods almost the full stage and attempts to blast the water with a laser, Void only floods a small portion of the stage and uses Sprint.
  • If his health is reduced to 0 during his Deadly Bound and Full Smile attacks, the Void Soul that suffered the finishing blow will become the real deal and explode, while the others vanish into thin air.
