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

** ''Planet Robobot'' also adds another eerie aspect to Dark Matter. [[spoiler:Star Dream, a clockwork star built/re-purposed by the HWC, was pushed to its limits trying to analyze a sample of Dark Matter Blade. The game also notes that, in spite of managing a clone, it could only partially analyze its data. That's right: a computer comparable to Nova, which can reach through ''space and time'' as implied with Susie and confirmed with Galacta Knight, yet it can't [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm figure out exactly what these aliens are.]]]]

Kirby is cute, so most people [[SurpriseCreepy don't realize]] the [[EldrichAbomination true terror]] that exists under the surface. Who knew a place called [[SugarBowl Dream Land]] could be so Nightmarish.

This series is placed in [[SugarBowl Dream Land]]. So, the enemies are Nightmare-ish. And they will, in turn, [[NightmareFuel fuel YOUR nightmares.]] For the anime version, see [[NightmareFuel/KirbyRightBackAtYa the Kirby: Right Back at Ya! Nightmare Fuel page]].

* An enemy named Scarfy is a cutesy flying creature that resembles Kirby, until players turn their backs to it, [[KungFuProofMook try to eat it]], or get too close to it, at which point it shows a demented mouth and a single eye and tries to eat them. If not killed soon, it explodes. It gets worse in ''[[VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand Kirby's Return to Dream Land]]'', where they sometimes act like [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2 Phantos]] when collecting keys. And they do this all the time in Extra Mode.

In the former, they sometimes serve as an alternate skin for Mumbies and their transformed state comes close to UncannyValley here. In the latter, pink Scarfies are introduced and act like similar to [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2 Phantos]] when collecting keys.

* 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.

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.
