"Bravo, Kirby," said Magolor, applauding ominously as he finished his decent. "You've truly earned your reputation as a hero. Your help defeating Landia was invaluable."
That made Kirby feel good...for a moment.
Magolor reached for the crown, which had fallen off Landia's head and to the ground. "Ah...at long last, it's mine. The source of limitless power...the Master Crown!"
Kirby shivered as Magolor put it on. The crown shook and sparked as Magolor turned into a giant, blood-red monster! He hovered menacingly over the heroes. "Obtaining this crown has been my ultimate goal all along!" he said. His new voice was menacing and low-pitched. Waddle Dee fainted. "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." I'm assuming they know my ship got hit on its way down... "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 this by the way. So, anyway, MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! The time has come for your planet--no, the time has come for the entire universe to bow to me!" With a wave of his hand, a portal opened leading to Planet Popstar. "And for being such a help in all this, your planet gets to go first! Prepare to bow, Popstar! Welcome your new overlord!" With that the liar zoomed into the portal for the jump to hyperspace with his Starcutter, leaving the four of them stranded and stupefied.
Just then, the head Landia baby walked up behind Kirby, slightly shaking the earth with each step. Kirby trembled. Landia softly bit his head...and catapulted him onto its back! "The battle with Magolor was merely a misunderstanding," said Landia. "He has deceived you, and stolen Halcandra's most valuable treasure. Let me help you stop him. If we survive, I'll take you home."
Kirby smiled. "So...all your minions?"
"The invasion was actually a patrol to stop any evil on your homeworld. They thought that was you and your loyal friends. As evil as the Grand Doomer appears to be he is the only protagonist of his species."
"Good guy." It signaled to the other three, who pulled Meta Knight, Waddle Dee, and King Dedede on their backs. The dimension was still open.
With new friends and a thin thread of hope, Kirby was ready for action!
