King D-Mind is the main antagonist and final boss of the 2017 3DS exclusive videogame Team Kirby Clash Deluxe. He is the king of darkness and the superior of Dark Taranza. He appears to be a fusion between Dark Mind and Shadow Dedede.
In his incomplete form, King D-Mind resembles Shadow Dedede with his purple, gray, and black design with Dark Mind's crown, although there are notable differences such as the blue triangles on his waist band and yellow eyes. On his hammer is a halberd. Also similar to Dark Mind, he has spikes protruding from his back. Often, he will transform into a large purple eye from his belly mouth, which slightly resembles Dark Mind's true form.
In his true form, King D-Mind's colors turn platinum gray and bright cyan. His eye form also turns from purple to fiery red, reminiscent of Dark Mind himself.
Little is known about King D-Mind's origins, although he is considered the king of darkness of the Mirror World. In the quest "The Final Battle", Dark Taranza summoned him from the black mirror to help aid him in battle against Kirby and his teammates, only for King D-Mind to promptly destroy Dark Taranza to face Team Kirby himself, but losses, mysteriously teleporting away.
In the quest "The True Final Battle", King D-Mind returns through the black mirror to seek vengeance on Team Kirby. He uses the same techniques from the first fight, only more powerful variations. When defeated, Team Kirby use magic powers to force King D-Mind back into the black mirror before shattering it, transporting him to an unknown universe. With the mirror gone, Taranza returns to his senses, and peace returns to the Dream Kingdom.
- It is unknown if King D-Mind is related to either Dark Mind or Shadow Dedede, or even the same entity. It is also uncertain if he is a mirror counterpart to King Dedede.
- King D-Mind's name is a portmanteau of King Dedede and Dark Mind.
- King D-Mind is the only boss to be labeled in the "Toughest" ranking.
- King D-Mind's theme is a remix of both Masked Dedede's and Dark Mind's theme.
- The core transformation is King D-Mind's only original attack. The rest are reused from Shadow Dedede and King Dedede from Kirby: Triple Deluxe.
