They stood face-to-face at the pinnacle of the volcano.
"Not exactly a fair fight," Landia declared. "There are four of you and one of me. And you have destroyed all that I have worked so hard to build. Just to let a twerp live without rivalry."
"We were all in this together," Kirby replied. "We always were. But we'll cut you down to size!"
"We'll see," Landia replied. The dragon breathed a stream of fireballs. Waddle Dee and King Dedede ducked behind and slashed its tail. No effect so far. Kirby and Meta Knight stayed in front and dodged.
Yes...this should be very interesting indeed. "Big disgrace, you lot," Landia said, and stopped. Therefore the beast twirled its body forward, nearly knocking Kirby off balance if Meta Knight hadn't pulled him away.
It was a very close contest. Even with all four pressing on the dragon, it seemed to be at ease. As Landia looped and fired around them, they got in a few hits.
And then...Landia's invisible life scale started to tell as Kirby scored a hit. The dragon screeched in pain as it's body split neatly into four one-headed baby dragons. To Kirby's surprise, there was little blood.
The babies assembled to each corner of the pinnacle. Then they ignited two vertical beams issuing between each other. Then they guided the beams toward Kirby and his friends. Landia accidentally let their guard down one moment, allowing their enemies to survive.
Then the Landia baby still wearing the Master Crown ignited a large fireball, and the brothers swapped the beam. Narrowly dodging the fireball, Meta Knight flew to the top and hammered one of the babies with his sword.
Kirby saw what was going on. He just gave me an idea! "Everyone! To a dragon!"
Kirby rushed to the top where the crowned baby took quite a few hits. Just then, the fireball came crashing to the ground. King Dedede and Waddle Dee stayed on the ground and hammered at two of the babies.
Finally, an explosion sound could be heard, and some invisible force unbeknowest to Kirby pulled the dragons together and then blasted them apart, knocking them to the ground.
Kirby and friends had done it! His mind reeling with questions for Magolor, he knew it was time to fetch Magolor and go home.
But then, just as his friends started to dance for joy, Magolor came swooping in.
