The fabric of spacetime has broken down, creating four rifts to another dimension. Each of these rifts leads to an unholy incarnation of a past foe--like Whispy Woods! The rotten, blighted arbor has been imbued with terrible new power!
— VS Parallel Woods • Kirby Star Allies

Parallel Woods, titled as Otherworldly Arbor, is a boss appearing in Kirby Star Allies. He appears in the Heroes in Another Dimension sub-game, serving as a harder version of Whispy Woods and Yggy Woods and as the first boss.

Physical Appearance

Parallel Woods appears very similar to Whispy Woods in appearance, but he sports different colors. His colors are nearly inverted from Whispy, having a dark gray trunk and leaves, as well as a glowing yellow mouth and eyes. The apples he drops are also dark gray and purple.


Kirby Star Allies

Parallel Woods appears as a boss in Heroes in Another Dimension. He has more powerful variations of Whispy Woods' and Yggy Woods' attacks. He can drop four apples, a Gordo, and a Blado. He uses his inhale earlier and more often than his counterparts; sometimes, he inhales for a shorter period of time, and does not get tired as a result. His Air Gun attack consists of two Air Bullets, followed by eight in rapid succession; these explode upon impact. He is capable of Big Burst Fruit, which detach from their vines very quickly. He can drop down enemies; these enemies are the same ones Yggy Woods drops.

Upon reaching half health, Parallel Woods will leap into the center of the arena, splitting up Kirby and his friends. He will then grow larger and rain down apples. Blados, five on each side of him, will fall afterward. Parallel Woods will jump three times, once on each side, and last in the middle, dropping three apples on each side upon landing. His Air Gun attack now splits into three Air Bullets. Comos may drop down alongside Big Burst Fruits, hanging on their webs. His attack pattern is identical to Yggy Woods.
