** And, for those thinking they can cover their losses and end the game, they are unable to quit the game during the battle with 0[[superscript:2]] without turning off the console. The Pause Screen reads off one single line:
---->Pause Screen: '''"Tough it out!"'''

* 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]]?

** Shortly after he is summoned [[spoiler: Galacta Knight shows how powerful he truly is by one-shotting Star Dream, and if it wasn't for its Soul OS, it probably would have been KilledOffForReadl]].

[[folder: Kirby Planet Robobot]]
* Clanky Woods is the first boss in the game, and the first indication how monstrous Haltmann Works Co. 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'' Whispy. This means Haltmann Works Co. took Whispy, the easiest boss in the series, dug him out of the ground, ''hollowed out his insides'', and converted him into a robotic abomination that the natives fear and run from. [[spoiler:And then Meta Knight gets the same treatment later on.]]
* The 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 spinny laser cube of death (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]].
* Although it was pretty obvious by this point, this game gives further credence to the idea of [[spoiler: Galacta Knight]] being [[BloodKnight a bit off]] [[OmnicidalManiac the deep end]]. Before summoning him, [[spoiler: Star Dream]] even says how [[spoiler: Haltmann refused to summon him under any circumstances, despite having no such reluctance with the likes of Queen Sectonia and Dark Matter's clones, and says how he "may destroy a nearby planet or two".]] While it was always a popular idea and makes sense, the fact that such an unhinged being has so much raw power is more than a bit frightening.
* Haltmann shows how much of a BadBoss he is during his battle. He summons several robots when he calls forth the cube in the last phase of his battle. He then blasts the robobts with his cube, laughing while doing so. It's pretty terrifying when Haltmann tests out his inventions ... on his own henchmen. Even if they weren't organic, it's implied he may have done this before.
* The sheer implication that the Haltmann Works Company somehow managed to get control of and possibly even reverse engineer [[spoiler: a Galactic NOVA. Making this the second one in the franchise to be corrupted by the villain. Just how many more of these things are there?]]

* Most final bosses that aren't Dark Matter have a second form where Kirby fights their soul, including [[spoiler:Marx, Drawcia, Magolor, Queen Sectonia, and Star Dream OS]]. These bosses often share attack patterns, many of which cover the entire screen in projectiles.

* There's an enemy that only appears in two stages, yet is still creepy enough to warrant a mention: Uja, a black, shadowy rendition of [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Master]] [[VideoGame/KirbyAndTheAmazingMirror Hand]] that moans. In one of the levels it appears in, it can morph into a sword with the exact same features. It might not be as bad as any of the final bosses Kirby's had to deal with, but it's still unexpected.
** Moans? Oh no, that's not moaning -- it's buzzing. Look closely and you can see that the creature is actually a whole mass of ''tiny black insects'' taking one of the aforementioned forms.
