* Although the final boss, [[spoiler:Dark Nebula]], may be very underwhelming, it can make you appreciate the penultimate boss all the more. [[spoiler:Dark Daroach]] uses upgraded attacks from his first encounter, acts much quicker, and warps around so fast that landing a hit is a challenge if you aren't using an overpowered ability. It's far more deserving of the title of final boss than [[spoiler:Dark Nebula]] is, and while it's not on par with other climatic fights in the series, it's still very fun.

* Mecha Kracko stands out for having two health bars (not even the final bosses have more than one), making the arena hazardous in its second phase, and having widespread attacks (that collaborate with the arena to send Kirby straight into pits). It's potentially the hardest boss in the game despite being the third one, but it's welcoming in what is otherwise an easy game with standard bosses.

* Landia, the boss of the seventh and final world. It's just as Magolor said, a fierce 4-headed dragon who shows no mercy to any who disturbed it. Some of his attacks are taken from Red/Great Dragon (one of the Computer Virus' monsters), like the flame breath or the "gigantic wing flaps". It's even better in the second phase where it splits into 4 smaller dragons, with awesome, hard to avoid CombinationAttacks.

* Holo Defense API, the second boss, is awesome for the same reason as Ado: it's 5 fights in one. It summons holographic Kracko and Ice Dragon like Ado, while also throwing out Sphere Doomers and Coily Rattler. Lastly, when all those 4 are beaten, it goes frenzy and flies around in the arena. Again, like Ado, you can beat it with one final hit... but good luck hitting something that moves that fast.

* In ''Kirby Fighters Deluxe'', Dedede is once again the final boss... except that not only is he going with up to ''64'' smaller copies of himself, he also upgraded his hammer with the power of Star Rod, to the point of being able to pull off [[spoiler:Shadow Dedede's attacks]]. All this while the tune of the title screen and, later, the medley of Dedede's boss themes from previous games are blaring.

** Marx Soul from the True Arena. It's Marx, more powerful, more awesome, and most of all, more insane. His maniacal laugh, crazy rolling eyes, attacks that homage Drawcia Soul (below) and final scream as he falls apart all make him both awesome and (relatively mild, but still) terrifying.

* Masked Dedede in ''Ultra'', for being the most epic fight against Dedede ever and having [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic an uber-awesome remix of Dedede's theme (which is already awesome in its own right)]].

* Masked Dedede in ''Ultra'', for being the most epic a really souped-up fight against original Dedede ever (he's got an awesome mechanical hammer and the fight takes place in an electric cage) and having [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic an uber-awesome remix of Dedede's theme (which is already awesome in its own right)]].right)]].
* Think the Wham Bam Rock (Great Cave Offensive final boss) isn't awesome enough? Meet Wham Bam Jewel (Helper to Hero final boss), its stronger counterpart made of gemstones. Aside from having Rock's normal attacks, he also brings out some new ones like flying flaming fists, dropping big bombs and shooting beams from his fingertips. Especially daunting against the harder-to-use helpers such as Wheelie or Rocky.



* Kirby's finishing move against [[spoiler:Magolor]]. So much Sword. And after you barrage him with that Ultra Sword, [[spoiler:he goes even more OneWingedAngel and turns into a big, black sphere of darkness with big red eyes. His stomach is pure white with an eye that resembles Dark Matter.]] This is without going into [[spoiler:the Extra Mode version]].

* Right before the final boss, you'll be fighting [[spoiler:Lor Starcutter]] in a SHMUP battle, riding [[spoiler:each heads of the split Landia]]. Its attacks are based upon [[spoiler:the missing parts that you spent your time collecting, like the oars flying at you or the mast shooting out tornadoes]], and then some.

* Prior to the final battle, [[spoiler:Masked Dedede]] makes a return... but after [[spoiler:his hammer]] is broken after an average boss battle with the usual theme, he becomes [[spoiler:Masked Dedede's Revenge]]. Think [[spoiler:Masked King Dedede]] with a massive power boost and as a replacement to his hammer, is willing to use a battle axe three times his size. AND the remix of his very theme from ''Super Star Ultra'' plays as a ThemeMusicPowerUp! And just wait until you see his Mirror World counterpart, [[spoiler:Shadow Dedede]], who doesn't even need the mask to show how tough he is!

* Cloudy Park's boss, Ado. It's a nice fight, or rather, ''five'' nice fights. Ado paints up four bosses from ''Dream Land 2'' (Ice Dragon, Sweet Stuff, Mr. Shine and Mr. Bright, and Kracko) to fight Kirby for her, making it great nostalgia trip for those who played that game, and it has a lot more depth than most bosses. Also, the fifth fight? Ado herself, attacking in a fit of rage after you defeat all her drawings. [[ZeroEffortBoss She dies with a single hit]].

* Miracle Matter, a bizarre shapeshifting 20-sided die who is capable of mimicking all of Kirby's abilities in some shape or form who can only be [[BarrierChangeBoss damaged by whatever ability he's mimicking at the time.]] ([[GuideDangIt Good luck beating it if you haven't figured that out]].) There's seven different forms he uses to attack you, some of which are honestly pretty hard to avoid, he switches forms at random, and he can only be hurt (and even then it's only a slight chip off the HP bar visible at the bottom) when he's in the middle of attacking you. Still one of the lengthiest, most interesting fights in the whole franchise. [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic The music's pretty rad too]]. Unfortunately, it's not on the OST.

to:

* While most of the mid-bosses in the game are just larger enemies, every level in Pop Star ends with a fight against a possessed version of one of Kirby's to-be allies. They're all fun battles, taking inspiration from earlier games. Waddle Dee acts like a traditional ''Kirby'' mid-boss (it's one of the few fights in the game that uses the iconic "impact stars"), Adeleine is a simplified version of the Ado fight (drawing up normal enemies, the Ice Dragon, and Dark Matter), and Dedede is a simplified version of his ''Dream Land 3'' fight. Unfortunately, they can only be fought once per save file and aren't in Boss Endurance.
* HR-H, the boss of Shiver Star. It's a HumongousMecha that fights from the background, firing missiles and sweeping lasers while swinging its arms around. And when it gets to half health, it TurnsRed in a manner unlike any prior boss: it transforms into HR-E, a rocket ship with scissor arms that chases Kirby down the pathway. It really shows how the game's TwoAndAHalfD design can make for a unique boss.

* Mr. Shine & Mr. Bright return from the prior game with all their old tricks and a couple new ones like the devastating Eclipse attack. And this time around, the duo is one of the later bosses rather than an early WakeUpCallBoss, putting the player on a much more even playing field for the fight.
* Dark Matter takes Nightmare from above and adds in a sword duel in low orbit around Pop Star before transforming into its iconic spherical form which would go on to become one of the most recognizable villains in the franchise. Said form is a race against time while the mass of darkness shows off a wide array of new tricks.

* Clanky Woods, if only for spectacle. The game takes Whispy Woods, near-universally known as a complete wimp of a boss, and turns him into a mechanical force with drill feet and missiles. Despite being the first boss, it's a very dynamic fight, unlike any previous Whispy battle. Special mention goes to the second phase, where Clanky makes the arena circular; a feature that hadn't been seen since ''Crystal Shards''.



* The entirety of the final boss is made of awesome. It starts out with [[spoiler: Susie knocking the helmet off Haltmann's head, allowing Star Dream to [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul overwrite Haltmann's memories]]]], and [[spoiler: Susise, not expecting things to have gone that way, leaves Robobot Armor for Kirby, and Meta Knight arrives with the Halberd, allowing the Robobot Armor to ABSORB it]]. The battle itself is a Star Fox-style shoot-em-up, with [[spoiler: Star Dream]] having plenty of lasers, a meteor shower attack, and even shielding itself with a heart-shaped barrier. And after that, [[spoiler: it fuses with the Access Ark, and becomes the largest thing Kirby's ever had to face]], that fires off rings, the letters to spell out "HAL" in reverse, [[spoiler: the Access Ark's legs]], and spherical lasers that explode. And after that, [[spoiler: the last little bit of the Access Ark's shell comes off, revealing a face similar to that of [[VideoGame/KirbySuperStar GALACTIC]] [[PhysicalGod NOVA]], and even begins attacking with parts of the original Nova to boot!]] Oh, and after that, [[spoiler: Star Dream fires a laser at the Halberd, requiring Kirby and the Robobot Armor to be ejected, and ends in Kirby [[ThisIsADrill DRILLING]] straight through Star Dream as a last-ditch attack!]] And [[spoiler:in the True Final Boss variant, Star Dream Soul OS, as Kirby prepares to drill through it again, Star Dream inhales Kirby for an on-foot version of the Galactic Nova fight. After three waves of pillars, the heart subverts being a Background Boss and attacks directly, using attacks inspired by other Soul bosses (primarily Marx Soul) as well as unique attacks.]] And finally, [[spoiler:after depleting its health, it still uses a desperation attack before finally dying.]]

to:

* The supposed final boss of the game, [[spoiler:President Haltmann]]. Take [[spoiler:Susie's mecha]] and turn it up to eleven, and that sums the fight up. While the battle itself is very crazy and exhilarating (boasting ''four'' phases and some very stylish attacks), a lot of the appeal comes from [[spoiler:Haltmann]] himself. His insane EvilLaugh and very... unique attacks (most clearly [[spoiler:destroying his own minions with a laser dome]]) really shows what kind of character he is. Coupled with the music, it manages to be one of the most unsettling fights in the series, and since [[spoiler:Haltmann]] is relatively tame in appearance compared to other ''Kirby'' villains, it's quite the accomplishment.
