    Way of Blue 
  • American Kirby Is Hardcore: Known as Way of the Meek in Japan. Still referred to as such (well, 'Covenant of the Meek' anyway) in the achievement for discovering them.

    Blue Sentinels 
  • Big Damn Heroes: For the Way of Blue Members, coming to their aid when a red phantom Invades the formers world.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Their ability to invade sinners is similar to the Blades of the Darkmoon from the first game, without much explanation as to why. The sequel reveals that they're an offshoot of the original Blades of the Darkmoon.

    Rat King 
  • Combat Pragmatist: Members will using environmental traps to their advantage against their enemies.

  • Duel to the Death: This covenants PvP revolves around honorable and mutual 1 v 1 combat.

  • Foil: To the Blue Sentinels.
  • Recurring Element: The spiritual successor to the Darkwraiths, as well as the predecessor to Rosaria Fingers.

    Company of Champions 

    Pilgrims of Dark
