Villain Overview

I'm so, so thankful for all of your help! High five, low five, all that.
~ Magolor
What's with all the weird looks? Fine. Let me explain everything. I fought Landia by myself and lost. So I fled to Planet Popstar. That's when the thought struck me... I could have you defeat Landia for me! A stroke of genius, I know. You even helped me repair my Starcutter. I really did appreciate that, by the way. Anyway... MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! The time has come for your planet... No! The time has come for the ENTIRE UNIVERSE to bow down to me. And for being such a big help in all of this, your planet gets to go first! Prepare to bow, Popstar! Welcome your new overlord!
~ Magolor after obtaining The Master Crown.

Magolor is the main antagonist of Kirby's Return to Dream Land, also known as Kirby: Return to Dream Land or Kirby's Adventure Wii. He hails from the dimension known as Halcandra. He is the pilot of his flying ship, the Lor Starcutter.

He also appears as a cameo character in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Super Smash Bros. 2014, Kirby: Planet Robobot, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, a neutral character in the Kirby's Dream Collection sub-game New Challenge Stages, a minor character in Dedede's Drum Dash Deluxe, a supporting character in Team Kirby Clash Deluxe and its sequel Super Kirby Clash, and a playable character (or Dream Friend) in Kirby Star Allies added alongside Taranza, Susie, and the unlockable Three Mage-Sisters as part of the Wave 3 update.

He is voiced by Hirokazu Ando.


Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Before the game starts, Magolor tries to use the Lor Starcutter to overthrow the Guardian Angel named Landia in order to steal the Master Crown to gain immense power and control the universe. However, he fails, his ship is damaged and Magolor flees into another dimension.

He crashes into the planet Popstar, and several key parts of the Lor Starcutter break off the ship and scatter across the land. However, Magolor meets up with Kirby, Meta Knight, King Dedede, and Bandana Waddle Dee. He tricks them into helping him fix his ship. They manage to find all five missing parts and the Lor Starcutter can fly again. Magolor then decides to use the foursome to help him defeat Landia and tricks them into coming to Halcandra and helping him.

Once Landia is defeated by Kirby and friends, Magolor comes in and steals Landia's Master Crown, reveals his true colors and intentions and flies through a dimensional portal towards Popstar. However, the four heroes chase after him on Landia and destroy the Starcutter. He then engages in a battle between his former pawns in a two-phase battle, but in the end, he is defeated as the Master Crown shatters, reverting into a ghostly form of his initial appearance and is teleported away into another dimension, having been pacified.

Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition

Magolor returns in Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition as the enemy for the exclusive Challenge Stages. While racing him, Magolor might summon common enemies, shoot purple fireballs to slow him down, and even attempt to pick up Score Coins. Magolor can also launch himself through the air quickly and use his magic abilities to phase through breakable walls and obstacles. He will occasionally laugh at Kirby if he happens to fall behind. The final race, suitably called "Magolor Race EX," features Magolor using his darker powers to his advantage by using them to race more quickly and strategically.

Since the last game, Magolor appears to be more friendly to Kirby, sharing a playful rivalry with each other. The races take place on mechanically themed courses that match his personal attire and styling. Said races are suspended high above the skies of Dream Land, the final race taking place in Another Dimension.

Magolor also appears in the credits, escorting Kirby through the screen while the credits roll underneath. As the credits finish rolling, Magolor returns to the Lor Starcutter, says goodbye to Kirby, and flies away.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Magolor serves no role in this game, but does appear through several cameos, such as a keychain, a statue by Stone Kirby or a balloon blown by Circus Kirby. A painting of Magolor on the third stage of Wild World. Magolor makes his real appearance in the audience during the 100% clear bonus video.

Kirby: Planet Robobot

Magolor appears in the game through cameos, including two stickers, and a statue by Stone Kirby.

Kirby Star Allies

Magolor returns in Kirby Star Allies, as part of the 3rd Wave of Dream Friends, alongside Taranza, Susie, and the Three Mage-Sisters. As a dream friend, he can shoot two swirling fireballs, rush into enemies, shoot dark orbs, summon spikes, summon a black hole, and swing an Ultra Sword. He can also summon the Lor Starcutter for the other friends to ride on and to charge at enemies.

Other Media

Dedede's Drum Dash Deluxe

Magolor appears in the spinoff game Dedede's Drum Dash Deluxe, appearing in the last stage, which fittingly plays "C-R-O-W-N-E-D". He appears holding a blindfold banner near the end of the stage, (which are normally held by Bronto Burts, but this time is held by Magolor) and according to director Shinya Kumazaki, Magolor also built all the stages Dedede plays though (which makes sense, due to Magolor already having known experience building theme parks.

Kirby Clash series

Magolor appears in Team Kirby Clash Deluxe and Super Kirby Clash as the Shoppe's owner. As a merchant, Magolor helps Team Kirby by selling weapons, armor, EXP Orbs, Potions, and Champion's Codex for Gem Apples and Fragments. He also sells Gem Apples for real-world money. Once the player buys the max amount of Gem Apples, Magolor will thank Kirby for his patronage, and plot that since he has enough funds, he could start his next scheme. But then drops the act, saying he was just joking.

Kirby Fighters series

Magolor appears as an unlockable playable character in Kirby Fighters 2, unlockable by reaching Fighters Rank 39. His moveset is similar to Kirby Star Allies.

Super Smash Bros. series

Magolor appears as an unlockable trophy in Super Smash. Bros. for Wii U, which can be obtained by scoring at least 450,000 points in a single game of Target Blast on Stage 3. He also appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a primary attack type spirit. His spirit battle is against Robin on the Halberd. He has increased power to his magic and the screen occasionally flips, resembling Magolor Soul's ability to flip the screen.


No strong evidence of Magolor's true intentions are shown until Kirby and the others reach Halcandra. Magolor is an adept and outstanding speaker who acts very politely in his first appearance, giving Kirby encouragement whenever the player visits him in the Lor Starcutter. He also appears to be very friendly and hospitable at first and tells Kirby that he loves Popstar so much he doesn't want to leave it (interestingly, the latter is true). However, once Kirby gets the Master Crown, Magolor completely breaks his cover and turns into a cruel, merciless, and temperamental villain whose only goal is to conquer the universe. Magolor has no remorse using his Lor Starcutter (that Kirby just rebuilt for him) against Kirby and Landia, nor for shooting them down after the Lor is defeated.

Strangely, in Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition, Magolor remembers what Kirby did to him but doesn't seem particularly disturbed by it. In fact, he builds Kirby an entire theme park to make up for his evil actions. This gives further credence to the hypothesis that Magolor was corrupted by the power of the Master Crown (although exactly when this occurred is harder to determine): however, it is also possible that Magolor had finally grown remorseful for his actions, which may be evidenced by Magolor Soul's pause description describing him as "a sad shell", suggesting that he no longer wished to fight Kirby, but if this is true, Magolor may have had his mind completely overtaken by the Master Crown's power.

Even more so in Team Kirby Clash Deluxe, he runs a shop where the player can purchase armour, weapons, support items, and Gem Apples (the game's premium currency, due to it being a free-to-start game). On Sundays, Magolor gives extra free Gem Apples when the player purchases them on that day.

In Kirby Star Allies, Magolor becomes a Dream Friend who can support Kirby and the others. He can even summon the Lor Starcutter for other friends to ride and charge at enemies.


Hi there! My name is Magolor. I'm from another dimension, but I just love Planet Popstar. I can't get enough of it! Things got a bit hectic when I first arrived, but that's all in the past, thanks to Kirby. To make up for all that fuss, I built Kirby a theme park right here in Dream Land! It's got special stages where you can play with different Copy Abilities. You know some of those stages can be a bit difficult... Hmmm... Oh, but I know YOU'LL to be just fine! Why don't you try to clear them all? You can even face off against me in some of the stages! Hee hee hee...! So, what do you say...? Are you ready to check out my amazing theme park? Let's go!
~ Magolor introducing himself.
The great hero, Kirby, hailing from Dream Land on Planet Pop Star.
~ Magolor about Kirby.
I'm so lucky to have met you. Me, friends with the legendary Kirby!
~ Magolor about Kirby and his friends.
Maybe later you can give me your autograph.
~ Magolor
Bravo, Kirby. You've truly earned your reputation as a hero. Ah... At long last, it's mine! The source of limitless power... The Master Crown! Obtaining this crown has been my ultimate goal all along!
~ Magolor revealing his true colours.


  • Magolor strongly hints that he knows Marx, another Kirby villain. This may be due to the statues made by Stone Kirby in Kirby: Triple Deluxe and Kirby: Planet Robobot both having Magolor posing next to Marx.
  • It is possible that Magolor was not even evil to begin with, and was being controlled by either the Master Crown or Dark Matter (due to his possessed form strongly resembling Dark Matter). This is evident when Magolor Soul's description refers to him as a "sad shell". This is further supported by his redemption in the next game.
  • It is theorized that the Master Crown contains the essence of 0, which is supported by the eye in Magolor Soul's mouth.
  • In Extra Mode, Magolor explains how the Lor Starcutter was built, saying it was built by the same power that gave rise to "clockwork stars." This hints at a possible connection to Galactic Nova.
  • In Kirby's Return to Dream Land, if Kirby talks to Magolor six times in a row and continues to speak with him afterward, Magolor becomes annoyed, accuses the pink puff of leading him on with his offer to fix the Lor Starcutter, and commands the hero to continue his adventure. If Kirby continues to pester Magolor further, he scolds him, saying that he's much busier than it seems and that he wants Kirby to stop distracting him.
    • A similar nod occurs in the Kirby Clash series, where if Kirby enters the Shoppe six times in a row, upon the seventh entry Magolor insists Kirby go back to his quests.
  • Magolor appears to be left-handed. He uses his left hand for gestures in conversations with him and for picking up the Master Crown.
  • The Lor Starcutter may not be his own ship, as one of his battle quotes (from Magolor EX) implies that he could have stole it. After collecting every Energy Sphere, he will reveal more info on the vessel, and he claims that he "excavated" it from the volcano Landia lives in.
  • In the "Kirby's 20th Anniversary" puzzle in StreetPass Mii Plaza, Magolor's sprite depicts him with having black skin rather than his normally used brown. This sprite was reused for his keychain in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. The balloon sculpture Circus Kirby can make in his likeness also uses the same black for his facial color, as does official merchandise of him.
  • In Team Kirby Clash Deluxe and Super Kirby Clash, Magolor refers to Sunday as "Magolor Day" because he gives out extra Gem Apples on those days.
