It refers to two bosses form earlier in the series: the HR-H/E, the boss of Shiver Star in ''Kirby 64'' (hence the HR part), and the robot Dedede at the end of ''Kirby's Dream Course'' (hence the D3 part). This boss also appeared earlier in the series, at the end of the second stage of the ''Kirby Mass Attack'' sub-game Kirby Master. Apparently, this is a completed form of the latter, but with HR-H's methods of attacking, [[FridgeBrilliance which makes sense considering Dedede helped Kirby in]] ''[[FridgeBrilliance Kirby 64]]''. All of its attacks in its first form are modified versions of HR-H's attacks. Also, the way it TurnsRed is in itself a nod: While other bosses in the game Turn Red at 50-60% health remaining, HR-D3 has two full health bars, much like many of the bosses from ''Kirby 64''. On top of all this, HR-D3 is a recolor of the Dedede mech that appeared in the cancelled GCN ''Kirby'' game.]]
