Nintober 2012: 31 Nintendo monsters drawn in 31 days. Please help Nintober raise money for the MS Society at [link].

October 3rd 2012: 045. Necrodeus from Kirby: Mass Attack

I don't think I ever beat this game. I kept unlocking fun minigames instead and playing those to death. The vertical shooter and the pinball game were amazing!

Something most people don't seem to point out is that his name literally translates to "death god".

Very nice looking picture, and i'm glad you focused on the sorceror form rather than just thehead, makes hm look a lot better.

Thanks! I try and go for what I consider the scariest form of multi-form baddies. Kirby enemies can sometimes look a bit goofy in their final form :)

Here's an interesting thing to note (because no one brought it up in the comments yet): Necrodeus' name is actually latin for "Death God".

...Kirby games: cute & colorful on the outside, dark & disturbing on the inside...

That is interesting! I never really thought about it before.

I did think "Shrouded Skull Demon" was a pretty hackneyed idea for a villain. He wasn't even that difficult.

At least the the game was awesome though! Said sub-games were a fantastically addictive addition but I tough the main game was great too! A complete deviation from classic Kirby but it all worked so well.

this poor guy seems a little overrated, but he´s really cool, too bad his theme sounds like a drun luigi mansion drop out :/

I was a little surprised how requested he was considering the game was a bit of a spinoff. Never mind - there's more Kirby to come this month :)

I might get Mass Attack just because the mini-games look so fun. ;) (I played a demo of it off the "Nintendo Channel" the main game is pretty cool to.)

Anyways, great pic. He looks like a really demonic clown. The Kirby games seem notible for having really cute heroes, and really creepy looking villains.

He does have a strange nose... The game is pretty good, but I think I went through Kirby burnout there for a while. We had Epic Yarn, Return to Dream Land and Mass Attack in such a short space of time...
Beau-Skunk's avatar
Perhaps, but before that Kirby was on a bit of a sabbatical for awhile.
In fact "Return to Dream Land" was in "development hell" for years, and went through 4 different entire game redesigns before finally getting released.
"Epic Yarn" also wasn't going to be a Kirby game originally.

I don't think I can ever get to burned out on Kirby. I just got the "Kirby's Dream Collection" 20th anniversary game, (I heard it hasn't gotten a release in the UK, or Europe yet) and I'm enjoying all the games in it still.
fryguy64's avatar
Indeed, it would be good to get the 25th anniversary, but given that Nintendo Europe seems to really hate Kirby we may not see it for a while. Many Kirby games get released here about a year after their US release. It's really weird.
Beau-Skunk's avatar
Usually, Nintendo games do come out later in England, and Europe, but there are a few exeptions.

I noticed most Virtual Console titles lately seem to come out much earlier in Europe then in America. (In fact, we just finally got "Wario Land" here.)
I guess that means the VC service does better in Europe, or something, I'm not sure.
