* One of the mini-bosses, Miasmoros, seems like a regular poisonous bad guy... until you realize it's a Galboros who has somehow been mutated and partially liquefied into a giant puddle of sludge, its main defining features of a Galboros having been so distorted that less savvy fans might not even recognize it at first glance!

* Clanky Woods is the first boss in the game, and the first indication how monstrous Haltmann Works is. Some might think that it's just a robot made in Whispy Wood's image, but the boss description and the name of his pre-battle cutscene ("Victim of Mechanization") confirm this ''is'' [[FridgeHorror Whispy]]. This means Haltmann Works Co. took Whispy, the easiest boss in the series, dug him out of the ground, ''and killed him by hollowing out his insides'', converting him into a murderous, robotic abomination that the natives fear and run from. [[spoiler:And then Meta Knight gets the same treatment later on.]]
* The ultimate fate of President Haltmann, ''full STOP''. [[spoiler:After his assistant Susie [[TheStarscream betrays him]] and steals the helmet that allows him to control Star Dream, he gets absorbed into the machine's consciousness, giving it sentience. During the final fight against the [[TrueFinalBoss Star Dream Soul OS's core]], you can hear his last thoughts in the pause menu, cursing himself for trying to use the machine to bring back his daughter. Then, once the final phase of the fight starts... the pause menu states that [[DeaderThanDead Haltmann's mind and soul have been deleted]]. Everything the poor guy did was in an effort to bring back his daughter, and in the end, he ended up betrayed by the very daughter he sought to bring back, [[AndIMustScream trapped inside the mind of a mad computer]], and ''erased from existence''. To top it all off, when you finally destroy the Star Dream Soul OS, right as it splits in half, you can hear one final distorted scream from Haltmann, leaving any hope of salvation for him utterly dashed as the core crumbles to pieces, for whatever small piece of Haltmann ''did'' manage to survive is now lost forever.]]
** Before all that, Haltmann's behavior in his boss fight is also chilling. His crazed laughter, especially as he repeatedly activates the giant spinning laser cube (incinerating several of his own henchmen in the process), really gives the impression of a man who's truly gone off the deep end, especially considering how ''normal'' it sounds compared to some of the other Kirby villains' [[EvilLaugh evil laughs]].

* [[spoiler:President Haltmann]]'s [[AlasPoorVillain last monologue]] as [[spoiler:he's being completely erased from existence by Star Dream Soul OS]]. It's not only [[TearJerker/{{Kirby}} incredibly sad]], but it's somewhat chilling as well-- in that [[spoiler:whilst beforehand he'd been acting out of grief-induced madness over his daughter's death, he's eerily calm regarding his fate, ironically musing how foolish it was of him to reactivate Star Dream]] in the first place. The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpLdQcwtjac incredibly dark and hopeless-sounding boss music]] that accompanies it makes it even worse--
-->'''[[spoiler:Haltmann:]]''' Why did I reactivate such a terrible machine? Oh, I remember...[[spoiler:I wanted to see her just one last time]]. How foolish! I should have known that no machine could make such a dream come true.

** Dark Nebula. It's just a purple star with a big eye on it. Daroach becomes possessed by Dark Nebula as soon as he opens the chest containing it. Imagine if Daroach hadn't grabbed the chest and opened, and Kirby opened it instead.



** Her entire stage as well. The first room has large empty spaces, and long platforms colored with surreal blotches of paint. In the final room, there are [[NightmareFace snickering paintings with distorted facial expressions.]] All with very [[NothingIsScarier minimalist]] music in the background. And if Old-School songs are enabled, the stage's background music is the normally cheerful "Museum" song from ''Nightmare in Dream Land'', which might alleviate the creepiness or make it even more so.

The theme that plays while you fight Drawcia Soul just makes the fight with her even creepier. Listen for yourself. https://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=cBLpeNV9lG4

In the Strato Patrol EOS sub-game, you fight Nightmare at the very end, and when you defeat him... his face stretches out, making him look incredibly creepy before he dies.

** Kracko's first appearance in Cloud Palace has it coming COMPLETELY out of nowhere without warning to rain lightning bolts onto Kirby and Fluff before leaving just as abruptly. Once you get over the initial shock you will likely end up being paranoid for the rest of the level in case it comes back (it does, but you finally get to fight it properly).

* Pyribbit's death seems needlessly graphic -- it's boiled in lava, causing it to scream in pain [[note]][[FridgeLogic nevermind]] how it was completely fine with being in the lava before the final blow was struck[[/note]]. It's then hit by its own levitating boulders dropping out of the sky, forcing it under the lava and crushing it at the bottom. For a comparison, imagine being smashed into the bottom of a pool by four heavy objects -- drowning and crushing all in one. Nintendo even reused that animation for when you defeat him again in the ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'' sub-game, ''Team Kirby Clash''. [[SarcasmMode Ain't that sweet of them]]?
