Just like Daroach before him, a new video clip has shown what Dark Meta Knight can do in Kirby Star Allies. Unlike what his silhouette might’ve made you think, though, he will be running around the stage much the same way his more chivalrous counterpart does but with attacks and techniques that fit his Amazing Mirror origins.
Dark Meta Knight's attacks seem to employ the use of mirrors… What?! He deflected the enemy shots?! Very sneaky, you masked miscreant! He's coming to #KirbyStarAllies in a free update this summer. pic.twitter.com/r6f2eNoofe

In the brief clip we get to see his spin attack in action, creating a reflective dome around him that makes a poor Sir Kibble take a cutter right to the face (if he had one). Afterwards he enters the mirror world, as we saw him originally for Star Allies, probably as a form of invincible guard akin to what Leaf and Archer have done in the past.
If they keep the number of character additions the same as the last batch we only have one more reveal to go before we know everyone who’s joining in for this summer’s update to the game. If datamines are to be believed, we’ll be seeing a real familiar face from the N64 fairly soon…
