The newest batch of Dream Friends are almost here, and even if all of them were bosses at some point, one of them stands out as a particularly not-so-friendly face. Dark Meta Knight, the doppelganger of Dream Land’s number one swordsman, is ready to cut through everything in his way like glass.

Having first appeared in Kirby and the Amazing Mirror, his skills have grown since we last saw him as a boss in Kirby Triple Deluxe. We see a full array of more vicious sword swipes and his ability to summon massive copies of his blade, as well as moves inspired by Kirby’s own Mirror ability.
The standout here is his duel with Meta Knight. They cross blades, hoping to show that he’s more than a mere reflection. It looks like he’ll be adding plenty of new ways to play in Star Allies once the Dream Friends update comes on July 27th, just so long as he doesn’t crack under the pressure.
