Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'''s President Haltmann has ''two'', who turn against him at the same time and end up becoming each others' SpannerInTheWorks. At the end of the game, Haltmann plugs himself into [[spoiler:[[RealityWarper Star Dream]], his company's supercomputer]], only for [[spoiler:his assistant Susie]] to swipe the controls from him at the last second [[spoiler:[[OnlyInItForTheMoney so she can sell Star Dream for massive profit]]]]. Immediately afterwards, [[spoiler:[[AIIsACrapshoot Star Dream itself]] activates, takes control of Haltmann, and [[OmnicidalManiac decides to eliminate all organic life from the universe]]]]. The former, in turn, resorts to an EnemyMine with Kirby to stop the latter.

If The Starscream ''succeeds'' in taking over the mantle of BigBad from his superior, the former BigBad may have actually been a DiscOneFinalBoss. If he was consistently portrayed as the more dangerous or important of the two to begin with, then he's also a DragonInChief.
