Listen you lubbers! I want you all after that Kirby!
~ Captaing Vul ordering his minions to attack Kirby.

Captain Vul is the central antagonist of the "Revenge of Meta Knight" course in the 1996 video game Kirby Super Star and it's 2008 remake Kirby Super Star Ultra.

He was the second-in-command and de-facto leader of the Meta-Knights, being a captain that presides over the Battleship Halberd as well as one of Meta Knight's closest allies.


Captain Vul is a very underdeveloped character that serves under Meta Knight, presumably as some sort of second-in-command. However, his dialogue indicates that he shares just as much ownership of the Halberd as Meta Knight does. When Vul hears that Kirby has boarded the Halberd, he orders Heavy Lobster to crush him before he becomes any kind of nuisance. After Kirby boards the ship again, he orders the Meta-Knights to do away with him. Then, he guides Kirby to Main Cannon #2. When that doesn't work and Kirby destroys the cannon, Vul throws Heavy Lobster at him once more. Kirby withstands all of Vul's plans and slowly weakens the Halberd. Beyond coming up with schemes to defeat Kirby, Captain Vul also comments alongside the other Meta-Knights on Kirby's progress, often to give his soldiers orders, scold them for whatever failures or pathetic schemes they commit, or to express his obsession with killing Kirby. After Kirby destroys the Halberd's Reactor, Vul decides he would rather live than go down with the ill-fated ship. He is the first to evacuate, and is never seen again.

Kirby Super Star

In the original Kirby Super Star for SNES, his portraits were noticeably more exaggerated and cartoony than the ones in Kirby Super Star Ultra. In addition, he was not given a name until the remake. He makes a brief cameo during the end credits of Meta Knightmare Ultra, along with Sailor Waddle Dee and Axe Knight. They are seen in a brief snapshot with Meta Knight in the interior of the Halberd.


Dressed in regal, sailor captain-style clothing with epaulets, Vul regularly oversees the crew and makes sure the ship runs smoothly. But after Kirby learns of Meta Knight's plan to conquer Dream Land with it and therefore plans to destroy it, Vul becomes desperate and violently obsessed, and proves that he will do anything to eliminate Kirby—even destroy his own ship.

~ Captain Vul from Kirby Super Star Ultra
AHH! This ship is done for! I gotta get outta here!

  • The credits of Meta Knightmare Ultra feature CG images that never appear as actual cutscenes. One of these images depicts Meta Knight standing with Sailor Waddle Dee, Ax Knight, and Captain Vul. Throughout the entire Kirby series, this is the only time Captain Vul's face is shown outside of dialog sequences.
  • While Meta Knight is the leader of the Meta-Knights and therefore the main antagonist, Captain Vul is the one who mainly drives the plot of the sub-game, as he is the one who sends all of the hazards towards Kirby and commands the rest of the Meta-Knights.
  • He appears to be the opposite of Meta Knight himself, being strict and commanding to his minions whereas Meta Knight respects them. Meta Knight is also a honorable fighter who refused to flee from the burning ship, whilst Captain Vul is a coward who tends to flee from dangerous situations, and was the first to evacuate the ship.
