* Dark Mind's second form in ''Kirby & the Amazing Mirror'' first mimics Nightmare, but then attacks as a flaming version of 0 with a mechanical eye.
* ''Kirby and the Amazing Mirror'' also features [[KnightOfCerebus Dark Meta Knight]] -- the Mirror World doppelganger of Meta Knight, and [[TheDragon second in-command]] to Dark Mind. Over the course of the game, [[KillAndReplace he defeats the real Meta Knight]] and [[BadassInDistress seals him inside]] [[EldritchLocation Dark Mind's realm]], splits Kirby into four in a failed attempt to kill him, and battles him twice. The first time you encounter him in [[RuinsForRuinsSake Radish Ruins]], he's disguised as Meta Knight and is [[WillfullyWeak holding back]] (though one has to wonder ''why'') -- but when you encounter him again in the Dimension Mirror, he reveals his true self and [[TheGlovesComeOff comes at you with all of his power]] -- with a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q62DxpqFtvI tense and disturbing theme both times you fight him]].
** The creepiest thing about Dark Meta Knight is that when he is defeated, he floats motionless in mid-air, shaking violently before cracking and shattering into pieces like a sheet of glass. [[spoiler:As shown by his eventual return in ''Triple Deluxe'', this doesn't even kill him]].
* In ''Amazing Mirror'', a gray-colored Shadow Kirby occasionally appears with a creepy musical entrance. Hitting him yields an item. The ending implies [[spoiler:he's just the Mirror World equivalent of Kirby, who is trying to save his own world -- hence the item drop.]]

* The final boss, Drawcia, is a paint-themed witch, who isn't scary [[spoiler:until she goes OneWingedAngel and turns into a living, screaming, multi-eyed paint monster.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rn1Ncc7URPg#t=3m20s Mere words don't suffice.]]
** 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
** The theme that plays while you fight Drawcia Soul just makes the fight with her even creepier. [[https://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=cBLpeNV9lG4 Listen for yourself.]]

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

Considering the [[NightmareFuel/{{Mother}} other series]] HAL Labs is known for, however, none of this should be surprising...

Nightmarish.



* 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/Kirby64TheCrystalShards Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand Kirby's Return to Dream Land]]''. In the former, they 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 similar to [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2 Phantos]] when collecting keys, sometimes forming groups, and they do this all the time in Extra Mode.

* 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 and one of the most familiar bosses 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 revelation of [[spoiler:just how much control Dark Mind has over the mirror world is very disturbing. What is heavily implied to be the mirror counterpart of [[EldritchAbomination Dark Matter or 0]] has his world's equivalent of Meta Knight as his main enforcer, Dedede as his new body, and versions of Taranza, Susie, and Landia working for him as well. The worst part is that Shadow Kirby is nowhere to be seen during all of this...]]

* The final boss, [[spoiler: King D-Mind. We've seen what Dark Matter possessions can do to poor Dedede. The fact that the worst case of it comes from Dark Mind's possession of the mirror world's Dedede is something special however. When its eye manifests here, the ''entire body'' is withered away into nothing to make room in the stomach for it, giving you a familiar, piercing orange eye set in a gnashing set of jaws that pinballs around the stage trying to kill anything that poses a threat.]]
