*Note- This was originally a plot for a possible Kirby Deluxe
Prologue (Beginning Animation)
Yes. He had done it. Meta Knight had finally created the perfect
machine. Using the best from HB01, an old digging machine (Heavy
Mole), and HB02, a more recent model (Heavy Lobster), he had
created HB03. It was small and lightweight. It had HB02's claws
and a tail from HB01's arm. It also had aero fins,
gyrostabilizers, and an HB02 eye for super accuracy and
telescopic vision. Why? His mind was trying to sort out the
Halberd incident. He had built a huge battleship to cruise
around Popstar in. One day a creepy, slightly cute looking
clown-like thing entered his base on Meta Island. Then… blank.
He finally gained consciousness after Kirby blew off his mask.
He assumed Kirby had destroyed his ship and took after him.
Unfortunately, he escaped. Why had Kirby done it? Then he
remembered. The clown. His eyes had glowed right before the
blackout. Who was he? Or what? Maybe Kirby needed to destroy the
Halberd. While he thought, he had made HB03. He wanted to use it
like a bodyguard… and to test Kirby's skill as a Star Warrior.
But enough of that. Onto the story!
Chapter 1- Escape
As Meta Knight and the Meta Crew slept, something entered the
base. A small black ball with one red eye floated in. It flew
towards the Holding Bay. It floated up to HB03, then flew
inside. BOOOOOOOM! Meta Knight jumped up from bed.
"That's my lollipop, Whispy! … huh?" BOOOOOOOM! "It's coming
from HB03's area. Oh no! Everybody wake up!!" The crew scrambled
out of the room and towards the source. They were greeted by a
blast of hot air as the perfect machine boosted into the night.
"Big Forest," said Meta Lance.
"No way… Ice Cream Island. It's closer," said Meta Axe.
"I compute it will strike Rainbow Resort," said Meta Droid.
"How d'you figure?" replied Axe.
"He will probably go for the Fountain of Dreams…"
"Your both wrong! It's going to strike Butter Building!"
interrupted Meta Chain.
"Ice Cream Island!"
"SILENCE! If my creation has escaped, it has gone to Cappy
"Why?" they all asked.
"I'll give you a hint: it starts with a 'K'."
"Kawasaki's Atomic Chili?"
"That's a 'C', Chain."
"Kirby! Kirby, Kirby, Kirby, Kirby, Kirby!!! He's programmed to
fight Kirby!! How can you forget him?" glared Meta Knight.
"Kirby beat us, remember?"
* * *
Meanwhile, on the outskirts of Cappy Town, Kirby was sleeping.
"Uh?" Kirby ran out of his house. Grass Plains was on fire!!
Kirby raced off to see the cause. Flocks of Waddle Dees, Waddle
Doos, Sir Kibbles, Kabus, and Scarfys raced past him. It must be
bad, he thought. A pack of Nodis. …Really bad. A flock of Bobos.
Really, really bad…
Chapter 2- HB03
There was another explosion. Kirby was getting close… he could
feel it. More and more creatures fled with each boom. BOOOOOOOM!!
"Run for your life!"
It was total chaos. Finally he reached the epicenter of the
commotion. A mysterious figure was running through the grass,
torching every blade with its flamethrower. Kirby had no idea
what it was, except it was shiny. Then it fired a missile,
blasting a hill to pieces. Kirby gasped. The thing turned.
"Intruder alert! Subject: scanning… scanning… scanning…
Identified. Kirby. Action: Run Away!" The robot turned around
and jumped. Rocket boosters in its feet and back kicked on and
it jetted away. Kirby followed.
* * *
"Checkmate. Wanna play again?"
"Negative, Meta Chain."
"Dumb robot… Hey Meta! Wanna play?"
"I'm sorry, but he's not here. He said it's a secret."
"Stop whining… he's just taking a nap."
"Can I go see him?"
"Because, he …*ahem*… doesn't have his mask on."
"Wow!! I-I m-mean w-why? He never takes it off!"
"He uh… sneezed…"
"Fact registers as unpleasant."
* * *
After a mile or so, the robot stopped. Kirby finally caught up.
"Status: 100%. Fuel: 97% full. Kirby status: 57% efficiency.
Action: Enter Battle Mode."
Kirby blinked. "Kirby. I am HB03… codename: Heavy Molster.
Prepare to start training." Kirby blinked again. HB03 lunged at
Kirby. Kirby dodged it and jumped behind. Heavy Molster opened
his claw. FWOOOMP! A blast of flames shot out. Too close,
thought Kirby. Kirby tried his most classic and basic maneuver…
suck him up! Unfortunately, it was ineffective. Heavy Molster
fired a missile. BOOM! Kirby was hit! It fired another one. This
time, Kirby tried eating the missile. Success! Kirby transformed
into… Bomb Kirby! Heavy Molster started
spinning around like a top, his tail like a blade.
Kirby dodged the attack and threw a bomb. Hit! Heavy Molster
tried again. Boom! Another hit! HB03 was mad. It opened its
claws and fired a stream of fire. Unlucky for Heavy Molster,
Kirby was too quick. The perfect machine opened its claws again
to cool down. It had not been in a fight and was unprepared.
Kirby took the opportunity.
"Hyaah!" A bomb flew right at Heavy Molster's open claw.
"Systems failing. Damage critical. 34% efficiency. Warning."
"Kirby! Stop!" Kirby dropped the bomb in his hand. Meta Knight!
"Kirby! Please stop! Do not destroy Heavy Molster! There is a
virus in his system. Someone else wishes to use it for evil."
Kirby stared at the battered and dented robot. "I created him in
my base. I thank you for weakening it so I can take it back
and-" With those words, Heavy Molster jetted off to Meta Island.
"Kirby! We must hurry!" A warp star appeared and carried Kirby
and Meta to the island.
Chapter 3: Upgrades
By the time Kirby and Meta got there, Heavy Molster had already
blasted its way inside.
"This way, Kirby!" Meta Knight and Kirby rushed inside. BOOOM!
"Warning! Warning! Intruder alert! Major damage to Science Bay
"Oh no! Heavy Molster is going for the upgrades!" What's an
upgrade? thought Kirby. "If Heavy Molster reaches the Science
Bay, he'll be invinci-" BOOOOOM!!
"Science Bay Breach! Science Bay Breach! All troops counter the
"-ble… Kirby! Turn left here!" As Meta Knight finished his
statement, the Science Bay Door blew down. There stood Heavy
"Subjects: Kirby and Meta Knight. Action: Destroy! Des-obey! Obe-des-ob-de-o-d-o-d-Overload!
Overload! Retreat!" Kirby and Meta Knight watched puzzled as
Heavy Molster raised his claw, twitched, and then flew off. All
right! He must have remembered me from the last fight! Kirby
thought to himself.
"Seeing me must have caused an error. He was programmed to obey
me. Hmm…" Oh…Kirby sighed. The Meta troops finally arrived. "Too
late. He flew off to Ice Cream Island."
"Well what about Kirby? Can we attack him?"
"No, you can't, Axe. We have to follow HB03."
"What's that?" asked Waddle Dee.
"Oh… what does the 'HB' stand for? And why HB03?"
"HB stands for Heavy Bot. Its model 03 because its third."
"I knew that…"
"Right. But we must hurry! Meta Lance! Get the H2 ready!"
" C'mon, Kirby! To the Launch Bay!" Kirby blinked in confusion.
What's a Launch Bay? Can I eat it?
* * *
Kirby gasped. The Launch Bay was huge! Almost like a giant dome.
In the center was a huge, metallic, slightly familiar mass.
Shiny! Everyone got onboard.
"Reactor 1, output normal." Say what?
"Adjust the balancer to… 0003!" Wait…The dome started to open.
"Let's raise the anchor." It's like some kind of…
"Check anti-gravity plants. 1,2,3 Okay!!" …déjà vu…
"Release the sails, solar level 288!" Oh! This is just like
"Liftoff!" With a giant burst of energy, the newly built Halberd
II took off. Kirby held on to Meta Chain's mace, causing him to
slide back and grab Meta Axe's axe. Meta Axe started sliding too
and tried to grab something. Unfortunately, he grabbed Meta
Lance's javelin, causing them all to be electrocuted.
"According to the base's computers, Heavy Molster has stolen my
new upgrades plus all the data I gathered on Dreamland's
"What's that mean?"
"It means, Captain, that HB03 can mimic any creature or robot on
Popstar or any of the nearby planets." Kirby shuddered.
"Really? Can it do Poppy Bro. Sr.?"
"Wham Bam Rock?"
"Well, not him really. Not enough data."
"What else?" BOOM!
"Sir Meta Knight! It came from Ice Cream Castle!"
"That, Waddle Dee."
Chapter 4: Imitation
Ice Cream Castle was under attack. There was a hole on the
outside wall and explosions occurred each minute.
"We'll never make it. Captain, get a warp star ready. Also,
prepare Escort Unit J."
"At once, Meta Knight. Follow me, Kirby." The Captain led Kirby
down a corridor to the outside. A warp star was waiting. "This
should take you to the castle. Be careful." Kirby jumped up.
"Wait!" Take this Blade Knight with you. He should come in
handy." Kirby and Blade Knight hopped onto the warp star.
Shortly behind them was Escort Unit J, a team of highly trained
Capsule J's. "Good luck!"
BOOOM! The explosions were getting worse. The entire castle was
damaged. Luckily, it was repairable. A voice with a Spanish
accent came over the earpiece Kirby was wearing.
"Kirby? Can you hear me? This is Meta Knight."
"We're here, but there is no sign of Heavy Molster," said Blade.
"Readings show an electric disturbance ahead."
"What about Paint Roller? Is he okay?"
"Yes. He managed to escape."
"Good…" Kirby remembered Paint Roller. A while ago Dedede had
stolen the Star Rod and given it to his friends to protect it
from Nightmare. Paint Roller held the second piece. "C'mon,
Kirby." Kirby and Blade continued down the hall. Suddenly, a
sketch of Kirby came up and attacked! Blade
chopped it while Kirby ate one behind them. "Meta! We're being
attacked! I thought you said Paint Roller left!"
"Yes, I know. Unless… Heavy Molster must be imitating Paint
Roller." Finally, after a barrage of drawings, they reached the
art room. The walls were like giant puzzle pieces painted like
outside. There, in the center, were four easels. Seeing them
made Kirby shiver, but something else made him gasp. On the
floor by one of the easels was Heavy Molster. But something was
different. Its feet had wheels and one of its claws was a
paintbrush. "I knew it. Just be careful. Heavy Molster has all
of Paint Roller's attacks, plus some of its own."
Heavy Molster turned around. Kirby and Blade got in a fighting
"Subject: Kirby and a Blade Knight. Action: Destroy!" HB03
started rolling around. What? Why isn't it attacking us? Heavy
Molster rolled up to an easel.
"Careful, Kirby. It could be up to something." Heavy Molster
started to scribble. Out of the easel popped a Kirby… a Bomb
Kirby. The perfect machine watched as its kamikaze creation
chase Kirby and his partner. BOOOM!
"Grrr…" It missed. Heavy Molster rolled up to another easel.
This time, out popped a Wheelie. After that failed, it tried
again. Out popped a Skud.
"Hey, Kirby, what's that?"
"I've never seen that before," replied Meta Knight, "have you,
Kirby?" Kirby nodded. The Skud pulled in its feet and rocketed
towards Kirby. BOOM! They got hit, but it wasn't bad. Meta
Knight logged down Skud in his list of monsters. Heavy Molster
painted another thing. Out popped a Hover Shotzo, first seen
aboard the Halberd. Kirby disposed of the scribble while Blade
Knight went after Heavy Molster. At the next easel, HB03 drew a
hand. It reached out from the paper, grabbed Kirby, and held him
in front of Heavy Molster's claw. BOOMBOOMBOOMBOOOM!!!!! Heavy
Molster had fired 4 missiles, destroying the hand and deeply
injuring Kirby. But while this was happening, Blade had snuck up
behind HB03 did repeated heavy blows to its back. Heavy Molster
jumped the gap between the platforms and began drawing. Out came
a simple Kirby sketch. Kirby sucked it in and fired it back.
That got Heavy Molster really mad.
BOOOOOOOM!!! The wheels on Heavy Molster's feet blew off and the
brush in its claw fired out. It hit the platforms, causing them
to fall. HB03 reverted back to its old routine. Flamethrower,
missiles, spinning, exhaust… but this time, there was something
new. Every once in a while, Heavy Molster would spit out little
blobs of paint. But some of them were poisonous. Others were
explosive. After a while, Heavy Molster retreated. Kirby and
Blade hopped onto a warp star and flew after it. The Halberd II
was right overhead, firing at Heavy Molster. Unfortunately, the
upgraded boosters were too powerful and the perfect machine flew
"Kirby! Scanners indicate Heavy Molster is heading towards
Yogurt Yard. Continue on ahead. We'll catch up." Kirby and Blade
Knight flew away.
Chapter 5: HBx3
Night had already fallen on the peaceful Yogurt Yard. There was
a path of destruction heading strait towards Yogurt Mountain.
"This looks bad," said Meta Knight's voice. "Heavy Molster
appears to have gone crazy. There are hardly any signs of life
where it was. You must stop it before it destroys Popstar!"
Luckily, there were two Wheelies nearby… but not just any
Wheelies, Rider Wheelies. Kirby and Blade hopped on and raced
towards Heavy Molster while the Halberd II followed behind.
Yogurt Cave was a giant tunnel dug both naturally and
artificially into the mountainside. Everything seemed in perfect
order. Then there was a loud explosion as Heavy Molster fired a
missile right past Kirby and blasted a hole in the wall.
"You won't get away this time, Heavy Molster!" threatened Blade.
"Threat made. Action: respond. Commencing witty comeback… Oh
really now? You and what army, puny puffball?"
"This army." The Halberd II slowly came into view. Meta Knight
was on the nose, sword drawn. "Surrender, Heavy Molster, or
suffer the consequences."
"Subject: Meta Knight. Action: …Run away! Activating HB01 mode!"
Heavy Molster turned around. Its hover jets turned on and its
claws started spinning. Then, it rocketed away.
"It's copying Heavy Mole! After it! Captain, maneuver the
Halberd II around to the other side!" The mighty battleship
slowly turned as Kirby and Blade followed the rogue robot. They
finally reached Heavy Molster, who was tunneling at a slow pace.
"This is Heavy Mole? Kinda slow, isn't it?" BOOM! Blade Knight
was hit in the head with a Dygclops. "Oww… That hurt!" The
classic battle began. Heavy Molster used its rotating claws like
drills to dig through the solid stone. "This is easy!" Blade got
three hits and Kirby got four. Heavy Molster rocketed forward,
shattering a metal plate. Through the hole was a base, but where
was Heavy Molster? The perfect machine, now in HB02 mode, fell
from the ceiling and landed with a loud clang.
"Destroy! Destroy!" HB03 fired a mini-lobster that Kirby ate and
fired back. Blade Knight ran up and got a good hit on the head.
Heavy Molster glided towards them then turned around and used
"I'm hit!" Blade flew back. "I'm okay!" Heavy Molster started
bouncing around and then fired a barrage of missiles. Kirby
swallowed one and got Bomb ability. BOOM! BOOM!
"Stop!" BOOM! "Damage reaching-" BOOM! "-66%!" BOOM! "Activate-"
BOOM! "-all out mode!" BOOM! "Hah! Get a load of this!" Heavy
Molster dodged Kirby's bomb and fired its tail blade. It bounced
around like a pinball until it hit Kirby and returned to HB03's
tail. Once again, the same routine. Flames, missiles, spinning,
exhaust, paint, tail, and now, a blitz! Heavy Molster would jump
into the air and vanish. Then, out of nowhere, it would appear
again and try to strike Kirby.
Fortunately, weakened HB03 quickly and tried to escape. Outside,
waiting, was the Halberd II.
"Give it up, Heavy Molster! Surrender!"
"Never! Activate turbo thrusters!" The perfect machine rocketed
towards a cloudbank nearby. That is when Kirby and Blade burst
through the wall on a warp star.
"Heavy Molster flew into the cloudbank! Escort Unit J! Escort
Unit G! Follow Kirby!" Capsule G's are special Capsule J's. They
have gliders on their back with a small thruster, ideal for long
distance flights. A warp star, four Capsule J's, and four
Capsule G's entered the clouds. ZAP! One J down. ZAP! There goes
"Kirby! Blade Knight! You're under fire from some electric wave
beam. Kracko?" Floating in the center was Heavy Molster. One of
its claws was open with electricity inside. ZAP! BOOM! ZAP!
"Three… Four… Five…" BOOM! ZAP! "Six… Seven…" ZAP! BOOM! "Eight…
Aaaah!" Heavy Molster shot down the warp star and they landed on
"Hehehe… Try and defeat me now!"
Chapter 6: Pre-finale
Heavy Molster hovered around. Out of its claw came a missile.
Then it started spinning with its flamethrower. Kirby dodged the
missile and threw a bomb between the flames. Heavy Molster flew
to the other side and fired another missile. Then, it flew
straight over Kirby and fired 20 missiles downwards.
Fortunately, Kirby slid away. Then, HB03 pulled out its
"Fry, Kirby!" ZZZZZZZAAAAAP! Kirby jumped out of the way. BOOM!
BOOM! BOOM! After a few hits, Heavy Molster reverted to its old
routine. This time, it used a lightning bomb that bounced
around. BOOM! FWOOOMP! BOOM! KABOOOM! BOOM! BOOM! Plop! BOOM!
BOOM! "ENOUGH!!!" Heavy Molster started to glow.
The entire cloud was destroyed.
"Aaaaaaaaahh!!" Kirby and Blade flew and landed on the Halberd
"HAHAHAHAHAAA!!!!!" Heavy Molster started firing wave after wave
of missiles at the mighty battleship.
"We're under attack sir!"
"You think? All men, battle stations!" BOOMBOOMBOOOOM!!
"Meta Knight! We've lost the left wing!"
"We're gonna crash!" BOOMBOOMBOOMBOOOOM!!
"Right wing, sir!"
"Don't panic! Fire the Twin Cannon!!" The Twin Cannon targeted
"Locked on, sir!"
"Good. Fire!!" BOOOOOOM!
"Direct hit, Meta Knight!"
"Sir! Heavy Molster's landed on the Twin Cannon!" BOOOM! "We've
just lost the Twin Cannon!" BOOM! "He's entered the ship!"
"Release Heavy Lobster!" BOOOM!
"We've just lost Heavy Lobster!"
"Wait, sir! Kirby is confronting Heavy Molster!" Kirby and Blade
entered a chamber. In the top corner was a small ledge with a
caped figure on it.
"Meta Knight?" The figure turned around. "Heavy Molster!" In its
claw was an energy saber. It jumped up and dived at Kirby.
"M-my creation is copying me?" Blade Knight felt confused.
Should I attack? Heavy Molster fired a Sword Beam at Blade.
"Ouch!!!" Yes. Blade ran up in a rage of fury. "Take this and
this and this and OWWIE!" Blade flew back. "I-is that t-the best
y-you've go-OWW!" Heavy Molster fired some missiles at Kirby's
partner. "Aaaaaaah!" Blade Knight started to burn up. Kirby had
seen this before. Every time his partner was out of energy, they
"Blade Knight! No!!"
"K-K-Kirby! S-s-save… me…!" So, before Blade Knight blew up,
Kirby ate him. Kirby transformed into… Sword Kirby! What
followed was a fierce swordfight. CLANG! CHING! CLANG! BOOM!
Heavy Molster appeared to be losing.
"Go, Kirby! (Did I just say that out loud?)" CLANG! CHING!
FWOOMP! Kirby ran up and hit Heavy Molster's Meta Knight Mask.
It came off and HB03 reverted back to its old routine. It fired
missiles. Miss! It used its flamethrower. Double miss! It spun
around like a twister. Triple miss! It spat out blobs of paint.
Another miss! It fired off its tail. Five misses in one attack!
"Grrr… Hold still!" It fired a thunder bomb. Missed again! Heavy
Molster blitzed. Miss!
"Grrrrrrrrr…" Heavy Molster went on a sword rampage. Kirby slid
under and hit the perfect machine. Then, he jumped over a blade
spin attack and stabbed Heavy Molster. "Error! Error! I… cannot…
lose!" HB03 flew straight at Kirby, pushing him straight threw
ten meters of pure titanium allow. Both landed unconscious on
the nose of the Halberd II.
Chapter 7: Finale
Kirby woke up. So did Heavy Molster. What happened? The perfect
machine started to glow.
"M-must… de-zzzrtt-stroy… K-Kir-zzzrtt-irby! Hyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!"
There was a bright light from Heavy Molster. Wings erupted from
its sides and filled with energy. The gyrostabilizers shifted to
the back of the fins and turned.
"What! I never had data on him! How?"
"It must be the virus. It probably came from Marx."
"Kirby, who's Marx?" Kirby pointed to Heavy Molster. Meta Knight
rubbed his eyes. "Well that worked… Research team! Search for
Marx!" While Meta Knight looked for Marx, HB03 started to
attack. First, it launched energy boomerangs. Of course, having
already defeated Marx, Kirby dodged it with ease. Then, Heavy
Molster flew up and started dropping seeds. Wait, those aren't
seeds! They're- BOOM! The little pellets were bombs that
exploded in a column of fire. Oww… Next, the perfect machine
started teleporting around and launched a missile barrage. This
is just like Marx… First, the cutters. Then, seeds. Then,
needles… then what? Heavy Molster opened its claws and fired a
huge energy beam. It blew up a nearby cannon. Oh, right… and
now… HB03 flew up and dropped an ice bomb. Kirby dodged it. Ha!
Is that the best you've got? Heavy Molster decided to go to its
most dangerous attack. The rogue robot split in half. Kirby
started to run.
"What was that? Why's Kirby ru-!!!?" A powerful black hole
appeared in the center. Only a few metal pieces were affected.
My turn, thought Kirby. SLASH! CLANG! It was a fierce battle.
Eventually, Kirby prevailed. Kirby jumped up onto Heavy Molster
and ran his sword right through its corrupted CPU.
"ERROR! ERROR! ERROR!
"Oh no!! Heavy Molster is going critical! Everyone, hang on!"
Heavy Molster started twitching and sparking. Suddenly, its
boosters turned on and it flew towards the hull.
"Meta! Heavy Molster is heading towards the reactor!"
"Don't worry! As long as none of the refracting lasers don't-"
"Heavy Molster just hit the reactor!"
"Heavy Molster just destroyed the reactor!"
"We're all doomed!"
"Quick, everyone! To the front!" At the nose of the crashing
Halberd II was a small bunker full of jetpacks. "Everyone grab
one!" Everyone on the battleship (except Heavy Lobster) managed
to escape. Kirby looked down as the Halberd II sank into the
"You think it's alive?" BOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!
"No." Heavy Molster, HB03, the perfect machine, was no more.
Kirby, Meta Knight, and the Meta Crew stared at the Orange
"Well, Kirby, I guess we'll be seeing you."
"Thanks, Kirby!" said all of the crew simultaneously.
"Cheer up, Meta Knight!" said Waddle Dee. "We can always build a
Halberd III and watch it get blown up again! What do ya say?"
"…*Sob*…*sob-sob*… Waaaaaaaah!" Kirby decided not to embarrass
Meta Knight further and hopped on a warp star.
"…*Hic*…*sob*…" Once again, Dreamland was safe, and Kirby could
have a good night's sleep.
