Here's a treat. Just recently, I was doing research on Kirby Super Star Ultra. I haven't ever played the game, but during my research, I found a sprite page of this guy. Not knowing who he was, I looked up some stuff on him and found his character mysterious and intriguing.

Seeing that he's brand new to the Kirby series, and has only been portrayed in sprite form (Aside from a brief, low quality 3D cutscene in the game), I felt that I needed to do him justice with a nice brawl rendering.

Seeing that he's a boss in KSSU, and seeing that all brawl bosses play like kirby bosses, it only made sense to make him a brawl boss!

Of course, it involved bit of creativity on my part to add details to make his design less primitive. I'm quite proud of how he turned out.

And remarkably, he almost looks like a metaknight edit, but it is, as usual, from scratch! Hope you enjoy!

What do you think this guy looks unmasked? I know he would be another Kirby creature but what color would his eyes be? Black like Kirby's or white like Meta Knight's?

Probably a bright pink or red?

Oh Dear Nova I have seen this on the internet for months and used to think it was official art (but never knew from which game xD)! It all makes sense now!
it means you did an amazing job on this rendering! *claps happily*

Let's see... he made appearances in Super Star Ultra, Return to Dream Land & Planet Robobot, all of which he appears in are non-canon appearances... hm... :iconthinkingplz:

At first around 2010, i thought that Nintendo made this.

Do you have a transparent version?

He would be a great kirby rep. It would be cool if he had the KSSU moveset

Galacta Knight is one of my favorites (though everything in Kirby is my faviorite...), was really hoping he'd at least be a Meta Knight skin in Smash 4. owo;

Very incredibly well done! This looks like something straight out of brawl, and I love all the extra details you added. Great job :D
(Would've loved to see him in a Smash game :'c )
