Kirby Dedede and Nightmare by MiraKHall Kirby Dedede and Nightmare by MiraKHall
Entry for :iconvideo-game-fans:'s contest, Game Bosses.

I had this scene from "Kirby's Nightmare in Dreamland" GBA version in my head when I read the contest info, because for the longest time, I though King Dedede was the bad guy in this whole game (after all, he was the final boss in "Kirby in Dreamland" for the GameBoy). Nope, he's just a simple antagonist-penguin-duck-bird-thingie to Kirby, and this apparently star-filled ball with Mr. Nightmare innit was the ultimate evil.

This is the funny part: I always laugh when King Dedede and Kirby panics for five seconds -- "Oh, no! Oh, no! Whaddawe do?! Whaddawe do?!" -- when the ball-thing comes out after Kirby inserts the Star Rod into the fountain of dreams... then Dedede swallows Kirby and the Rod whole and spits 'em out into the stratosphere, "GO FIX THIS MESS, DAMMIT!" :XD:

And that was the time when I THOUGHT I'd beaten the damn game, but then I was thrown, literally, into another final-final two-part boss battle. So I thought this was rather epic back then, challenge-wise, and I was still a noob at video games at that time.

Hence why I chose this render for the contest.

Done in Photoshop CS4, royalty-free textures collected from outside the DASphere -- just can't remember where...

Zero is really the ultimate evil of the Kirby universe though. He's involved in three games in the series, possibly four depending on how Squeak Squad is counted. Of course Zero usually operates through Dark Matter, but the point remains (Dark Nebula is a Dark Matter as well).

Sis and I haven't played the Squeak Squad one, I'm afraid; we've heard bad reviews on that one...

I love King Dedede. He's very expressive, funny, and likable (except when he's being a jerk though he's still entertaining). He's my favorite Kirby character and video game character.

Yeah, I think I did, but I think the Ice World song is still a winner with me :XD:  Haven't kept up with reading his stuff, however; there are a LOT of online comics I'm way behind on ^^;

I just like the way he portrays Dedede's emotions in his comics, is all.

I think it's the other way around, when "Kirby swallows Dedede."

Usually, but it was Dedede who swallowed Kirby and the rod and propelled them into space ;)

Yeah, but seeing as how Kirby is the one doing all the "sucking", I thought it would be more appropriate if HE was the one to do it!

Usually.  You need to play Kirby's Adventure for the SNES or Nightmare in Dreamland for the GBA; they're the same game, just different level of graphics.

Well, how was he to know about Dedede's intent to protect everyone in Dreamland from nightmares? If anything, having NO type of dreams is probably bad enough.

I kinda preferred the NES version of this cutscene, as Kirby had more expressions, especially his bulging eye look.

Nice art work, I think this was the first real plot twist I ever saw in a video game as a kid. (obviously I never played Ninja Gaiden)

I agree with you. When I first played the game, I was like "OMFG I only have two red bars left and I hafta battle one more boss? Cousiiin help meeee".

Those were good times, when all I had to worry about was staying alive to battle that mean torpedo guy who looked invincible and watch my cousin's button-mashing prowess in awe. Good times.
