How To Beat Morpho Knight

Welcome to Nintendo Life's Kirby and the Forgotten Land boss guides. Here we'll be running you through each and every one of the main bosses for the game and how we went about defeating them.

Now that you've beaten the main campaign and collected all of Leon's Soul Fragments it's time to move on to the endgame and a final flurry of bosses.

The second of these is Morpho Knight!

Let's take a look!

Kirby and the Forgotten Land - Morpho Knight Boss Guide

How To Beat Morpho Knight

Phase One

The biggest problem you'll have with Morpho Knight during this first phase is landing your own attacks, whether you're using an ability or the stars he drops as he attacks. He blinks around the arena and disappears quite a bit, so watch for your timing and make your shots count, don't just fire off a star as soon as he's stopped for a breather as he'll likely move.

This opening salvo sees Morpho Knight jab at you with quick slashes of his sword which are easy to avoid and hoover up stars from. More worrying is when he uses a variation this which sends waves of energy your way, jump these and then get your own attacks off.

He'll fire a solid wall of fire and large funnels of fire out in this first phase too, these are both easy enough to see coming and have the added advantage of leaving a wealth of stars behind, so dodge and get in for your own damage.

The only other thing to watch for early on is the giant purple floating head he summons. This will float around slowly, dropping stars in its wake, so don't worry about it too much, just keep your distance and focus on what Morpho is up to. You should get on to the second phase in pretty short order.

Phase Two

This second phase is actually not nearly as bad as it first appears. Morpho Knight will brandish two great big flaming swords to kick things off here, slamming one down to create a wall of flame you'll need to dodge, then the other for the same effect. He'll then slam both down, creating two walls of flame that close in to meet in the middle. All of these attacks are big and slow and easy to dodge, they also leave a ton of stars to hoover up and wallop him with.

He's also going to summon two great big heads to traverse the arena now while he gets on with blinking around and swiping at you, but these are also slow and not hard to stay away from. In terms of his sword attacks it's only the swipes that fire off volleys of energy that you really need to look out for, jump out of the way of these to avoid as they do a lot of damage.

Remember that he's quick so don't waste attacks by shooting when he's about to move, wait and nail him when he's busy winding up an attack.

The main thing you really need to watch out for in this very final stage of the last boss fight in the game though is a pulsing energy attack he does that creates a small field of energy around him, if this touches you it messes you up big time and distorts your vision and controls for an extended period of time, so stay away when you see him stand still and prepare to use it.

As this phase goes on he'll use this attack more and more, and at one point he'll use it three times in a row with the last one having a much larger area of effect. If it does hit you, just concentrate on staying away from him until its effects wear off as any shots you fire at him will almost definitely miss. Don't attack, stay away and it'll wear off.

Stay out of the way of this one move and make sure to make use of the large deposits of stars that his flaming sword and other flame attacks leave and you'll have him down in no time.

Congratulations, you've beaten the game!
