Battle on the MOOOON by Jdoesstuff Battle on the MOOOON by Jdoesstuff
Just a little pic of the fight between Kirby and Nightmare in Kirby's Adventure or in my opinion it's superior remake, Nightmare in Dream Land. It takes place on the moon, but why does the moon have grass?

Unlike his animu counterpart, Nightmare only appears once in the video games.(not including his cameo in that one mini game in Mass Attack)
Where in the anime, he's the main cause of evil and started World War ? that went on for a gazillion years! Although in the games, Nightmare is an actual challenge instead of using one whip of the Star Rod in a dream in the anime.(seriously, that fight was pathetic!XP)

On the MOON, I see?

This reminds me of the MLP recent series.
Luna was stuck on the moon for 1,000 years when she turned evil.
The Evil Rarity arc showed the stuff that made Luna go evil and currently have Rarity under their influence lives on the moon.

I guess maybe space is very vast, therefore very ominous, therefore very suspenseful, and I guess that could be a good trait for a final fight scene.

either that or flying space Dolphins that wish to consume planets until they become as big and round as planets so they can be used as fuel for their demon overlord, the King of Mayonnaise, Rubert Billythorp XXII, but I don't know.

Well, Nightmare in the games is kind of low key ; he's basically the next step up from Dedede villain-wise but let's just say that he isn't exactly really that fearsome.

In fact, although his game counterpart put up more of a fight, that's actually not saying much ; compared to other Kirby final bosses, Nightmare is a total pushover. Most of his attacks are aimed at empty air, he is almost entirely incapable of touching you if you just stand still, and if you jump into him, he's the one who gets hurt (although it admitely do less damage than throwing stars at him). Compared to many of the serie's final bosses (or even Dedede when he's serious such as Dreamland 1's hard mode or his famous Masked version), Nightmare is kind of a giant wuss.

His first form is *FAR* harder... although that make sense when one take an interesting point into account ; the Nightmare Orb is actually made of a large group of Nightmares acting as one. The wizard fought afterward is simply the leader after expulsing himself from the collapsing orb. So it's kind of understandable that an individual Nightmare would be a lot easier to defeat than an orb made of dozens of them.

Well, remember, at the time Nightmare was the first dark final boss in Kirby, so you can't really compare him to future bosses.

Yeah, his first form was harder, mostly because it had a freaking time limit.XP

One of Kirby's best boss fights. =)

I saw the last episode of that show just to see how it ended, especially since the rest of the episodes didn't hold much relevance in chronology. Yeah, the final fight was fairly anti-climatic, but video games are naturally more challenging than shows, since gamers are expected to become more involved.

By the way, I liked this game...Been there, done that. :salute:

Well, as a whole the anime series was more goofy than it was serious. But tell that to the fanbase.:P Well I was expecting at least a little more, that was rediculous.
Oh well, point 1 for the games!~

Nostalgia attack! :excited:
Yeah, this was the first Kirby game I ever played (and beat). :D
Surprisingly, the fight against his final form was easier for me than that spinning ball he starts off as.
