As [[http://snipurl.com/1ndwkm this]] clearly shows, The Grinning Colossus survives and escapes to [[KingdomOfLoathing Loathing.]] In fact, he may originally be from there.

[[WMG: Alternatively, Indykirby is VideoGame/{{Kirby}}'s descendant, and this happens in the future of Kirby.]]

The Grinning Colossus is a remnant of destroyed Dark Matter, and Indykirby was sent to destroy it. [[AntiVillain It is not really evil]], [[FantasticRacism but everyone has prejudices against it]] [[CaptainObvious for obvious reasons]], so it hides in some underground palace.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: The game has some sort of hypnotism built in]]
That causes people to spend more time thinking about crossovers and the motivations of inanimate objects than is spent actually playing the game.

Think about it. How many items are really in that area? Who could have told you that YouHaveToBurnTheRope? Now, the instructions appear on the screen without text boxes, which generally indicates a telepathic or omnipresent voice. The Grinning Colossus would have no need of such vocalization, as his grin clearly indicates that he has a mouth of his own. This leaves our speakers as the rope or the chandelier. The chandelier, however, is attatched to the rope, indicating a strong friendship between the two. Even if it were to perform a HeroicSacrifice, it would be far more likely to try and develop a plan that minimize the damage done to the rope (eg, You Have To Untie the Rope).
The only possible explanation is this: The rope, tired of being constantly stretched taut, is committing SuicideByCop. It is so desperate that it does not care that the chandelier will die as well; indeed, the rope will be happy to have its friend join it in the afterlife. The only death that can ensure the rope's complete and utter destruction is burning, so it creates a situation in which YouHaveToBurnTheRope and gives you instructions to that effect. The Grinning Colossus is, in fact, merely an illusion created by the rope to give you a motive to burn the rope.

Which means that in the world of the former, there is a The Kid who wants to defeat an incredibly easy-to-beat The Guy, and in the world of the latter, there is an "Indykirby" that must go through a nearly impossible quest to destroy a Grinning Colossus with CosmicHorror level power.
