Void Soul is a secret boss who is faced only in The Ultimate Choice, at the end of 'Soul Melter' difficulty. As of update 4.0.0, he lends his position over to a stronger variation named Void.

Overview

Void Soul is a souped-up version of Void Termina's Final Core, making Void Soul the true Final Boss of Kirby Star Allies prior to version 4.0.0, which added Void - Astral Birth to the game. Defeating Void Soul is required to complete The Ultimate Choice and 100% Completion of Kirby Star Allies.

Boss Battle

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 13500 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
トモダチノワ
Circle of Friends[title based on internal game 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.
タノシイユメ
Pleasant Dream[title based on internal game 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.
マンメンノエガオ
Full Smile
(internally known as Laughing Needle[title based on internal game data])
Instead of poking needles on his own for his normal counterpart, Void Soul splits into four. Each of them bursts into laughter and pokes needles from his body to 8 directions, each needle leaving a star.
This resembles the Needle Form of Miracle Matter.
オオキナウタ
Loud Song
(internally known as Song Laser[title based on internal game 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.

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

  • 3 lasers from one side of the stage,
  • 3 lasers from the other side of the stage,
  • 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).
カケッコ
Sprint
(internally known as Deadly Bound[title based on internal game 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.
イタダキマス
Bon Appétit
(internally known as Mini Core[title based on internal game 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 an attempt 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. They will disappear naturally if not defeated.
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. Loud Song (floods the stage with water; fires laser two times)
  6. Sprint
  7. Bon Appétit
  8. Loud Song (fires multiple rounds of laser)

In Version 1.0.0-3.0.0, Void Soul's attack order was different:

  1. Circle of Friends
  2. Pleasant Dream
  3. Shooter Cutter
  4. Loud Song (floods the stage with water; fires laser two times)
  5. Sprint
  6. Full Smile
  7. Bon Appétit
  8. Loud Song (fires multiple rounds of laser)

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