Kirby and the Forgotten Land is a 2022 platform video game developed by HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch. It is the seventeenth mainline installment in the Kirby series, as well as the first mainline game in the series in full 3D, excluding spin-offs.
In this game, the player controls Kirby in an adventure through the titular Forgotten Land to rescue Waddle Dees kidnapped by the ferocious Beast Pack. To complete each stage to save the Waddle Dees, Kirby can use a wide range of copy abilities to help battle enemies and progress. The game was developed for the 30th anniversary of the Kirby series.
The Kirby series has hit massive levels of popularity over the years due to its fun gameplay mechanics and quirky characters. Today, we will be talking about one of those characters, namely Morpho Knight.
Morpho Knight is a spherical creature with black skin, white glowing eyes, and no mouth. It has yellow shoes and gloves, red armor with black ornamentations, and white shoulder pads with a red swirl on both of them. Its mask has horns that resemble antennae. It has red sparkling butterfly wings on its back.
Morpho Knight is the final boss of Isolated Isles: Forgo Dreams with the boss title of Fluttering Dream Eater. When confronting Kirby, it feasts on the most powerful soul it finds in the form of Fecto Forgo, suggesting a parasitic relationship with powerful vessels it uses to enact judgment.
Defeating Morpho Knight
Morpho Knight follows some fixed attack patterns:
- Continuous slashes, sometimes following up with a singular charged power slash.
- Mid-range shockwave slash attacks.
- Giant sword summon that use various multiple slashes.
- Fire slash with flaming twisters.
- Distortion waves created by flapping his wings.
- Copy Soul Forgo summon.
- Twin giant flame sword summons that leave lingering fire damage upon attack.
Since he is the secret final boss, dodging these attacks and fighting back might not be easy for everyone. For visual tips and cues on defeating Morpho Knight, this video from UTAGaming might come in handy (skip to 5:50 for the Morpho Knight battle):
