Queen Sectonia (クィン・セクトニア) is the main antagonist (tertiary in Extra Mode behind Black Dedede and Dark Meta Knight) and final boss of Kirby: Triple Deluxe. She is a large queen bee-like creature that wields two magic scepters, and appears to be the mastermind behind the creation of Royal Road, the abduction of Floarald's inhabitants, and even (indirectly) Dedede's abduction by Daranza early in the game. She attempted to take over Floarald and Pop Star, but was thwarted by Kirby.
Sectonia has the look of a giant wasp, although instead of being black and yellow, most of her body appears to be a dark blue or violet, but the three stripes on her lower body are yellow. Her head is mostly dark blue, but there is a yellow area that appears to form her mouth and nose. She has large pink eyelashes and antennae, while her large insect-like eyes are purple. She wears a gold crown with a blue crystal-like object on it and a pink heart on the front. She wears what appears to be a regal pink and purple cape with a fluffy white collar, and red and blue hearts attached to it on her large, dark blue upper body and her upper body has a pink heart on it. The area of her body that appears to be her waist is extremely thin, but her lower body (what could be a thorax) is as big as her upper body. Her four wings are also very wasp-like; they are a golden yellow, and have gate-like holes in them. She has a tall golden staff topped with a dark pink, diamond-shaped crystal. Sectonia has white-gloved hands, but she is limbless, meaning she has no arms attached to them.
Her second form is a giant flower-like monster. Her five petals are bright pink with heart-shaped splashes of orange on the ends and blue surrounding the orange, and pink and purple designs closer to the flower's base. Sectonia's second form is similar to her first one, but the flower seems to replace her lower body, and her antennae are much longer. Her wings now float behind her flower body. She controls green vines in this form, that turn pink at the tips and have flowers on their ends that resemble her own flower form, except with four petals instead of five. The flowers have large black pupilled eyeballs in their center.
After Kirby defeats King Dedede, who is being controlled by Daranza, at Royal Road, Daranza decides that Kirby may be strong enough to best his master, whom he promptly summons from the ceiling. Said 'master' turns out to be none othet than Sectonia, who immediately blasts Daranza with her scepter while calling him a foolish bug. Queen Sectonia promptly declares herself to be Popstar's new goddess, and attacks Kirby for his 'insolence', but is defeated. As he celebrates, Sectonia combines herself with the Dreamstalk and turns into a flower-like monster. Vines encase the castle Kirby and Dedede are in, trapping them, and cover Pop Star and Floarald. Several Floarald inhabitants appear and provide Kirby with a cannon-like device, which he and Dedede use to combat Sectonia's vines. Once an opening in the vines is made, Dedede shoots Kirby through it, and the latter ascends the World Tree to confront Sectonia. She is defeated once more, and Kirby again celebrates, but once of Sectonia's vines grab Kirby by the foot and capture him. Just then, Daranza appears with Dedede in his hands, and throws the king at Kirby, using his hammer to smack Kirby free of the vines. Dedede then throws Kirby at Daranza, who throws a Miracle Fruit at Kirby, giving him his Hypernova ability. Kirby then confronts Sectonia again. The buds on Sectonia's vines protect her with a shield, but Kirby inhales them and shoots them at one another until all four are destroyed. Sectonia makes a last-ditch attempt to defeat Kirby by firing an enormous beam at him, but Kirby inhales it and sends it back at Sectonia, seemingly destroying her and ending the main mode.
After defeating every other opponent, Kirby discovers that Sectonia had not been slain during her 'final' battle against him: instead, she had clung to life long enough for her vines to find four Miracle Fruits, which a decaying Sectonia promptly consumes. Sectonia then transforms into a blue, orchid-esque form of herself known as Queen Sectonia's Soul and fights Kirby as the penultimate battle of the True Arena. Sectonia's Soul is seemingly defeated after having her HP depleted, but she then stirs and rips herself out of the wilting Dreamstalk, engaging Kirby in a surprise final battle. When the final blow is dealt, Sectonia screams and explodes into a shower of blue petals, ending her aspiration for godhood permanently.
First FormThe first fight against Sectonia is divided into three distinct phases. In the first one, she attacks with relatively weak beams from her green scepter, and will occasionally exchange her scepters for swords to perform melee attacks. One melee attack involves Sectonia slicing her swords twice, and then charging forward in a similar fashion to Galacta Knight, leaving a trail of stars behind her; another is a multi-stab attack similar to the one Kirby himself uses that launches Kirby at the end of the attack if he is caught in it. After a third of her health is gone, Sectonia will warp to the middle of the screen and produce a huge crystal in the background with her magic; she will then use her magic to throw Kirby onto the crystal, starting phase two. Here, Sectonia will initially attack from the background with yellow discs which are thrown in a sharp arc: Sectonia will first fire two sets of two discs, and then will fire a single, 6-disc set which will cover the whole floor of the crystal. Sectonia can also warp closer to the crystal and create white, green, and red Antrs to distract Kirby while she uses other attacks, and use powerful dark lightning attacks, swiftly repositioning herself after every strike. Finally, Sectonia retains her sword attacks from her first phase, which can potentially knock Kirby off the platform if he is struck by them. When another third of her health is gone, Sectonia will use her scepters to shatter the crystal, blasting Kirby back to the first battle arena for the final phase of the fight.
Sectonia's main attack here is to rapidly teleport towards the front of the screen, leaving after images behind her, before appearing next to Kirby and quickly slicing her swords: she tends to do this several times in a row. She retains the ability to summon Antrs, and often follows up on this by shooting several huge, damaging discs at Kirby's height.
Second Form (First Round)
To be added.
Second Form (Final Round)
The final battle in normal mode pits Hypernova Kirby against Queen Sectonia and her four vines. Sectonia's main attack in this form is having one of her vines fire out a huge stream of coconut-esque missiles that Kirby must catch in his mouth, creating a large clump. Sectonia will then fire a much larger, slower missile from her own body at Kirby, and the hero must fire the clump of smaller missiles at the larger one, causing them all to explode on impact with each other before they reach him. Sectonia's other attack is to send one of her vines' buds to try to swallow Kirby: if Kirby evades this attack, which is done twice in a row as Sectonia's health gets lower, the vine is stunned and Kirby can inhale it to use it against Sectonia. The remaining buds will form a shield around Sectonia as one is inhaled, and the player must use the gyroscope to aim and fire the bud at another to destroy them and lower Sectonia's health, until all four are gone and Sectonia is vulnerable.
Once all four buds have been destroyed, Sectonia will rush the the right side of the screen fire a huge beam at Kirby as a last-ditch attempt to defeat him. Kirby will inhale the beam, and multiple directions must be quickly pressed on the control pad as the beam is fired to help Kirby catch the entire blast. If successful, Kirby will also inhale Sectonia's petals, some of the platforms under him, and even Sectonia's nearly depleted health bar, and then send the beam back at her, defeating her for the third time and ending the main mode.
Extra Mode Form
A supposed Mirror World version version of Queen Sectonia, known as Queen Sectonia DX, is fought in Extra Mode by King Dedede. Her attacks are the same as before, but she has some new ones. One of them is where she takes the aforementioned gold rings and she puts a huge on around her body as she tries to ram King Dedede (or Kirby). She also sits in the background and throws the rings to the foreground where the player must dodge them. In her second phase, she summons blue Antrs that shoot ice from their clubs while she shoots rings from the foreground onto the crystal. However, she can kill her own minions from the rings she throws. After that phase, she destroys the crystal and sends the player back onto the main platform, same as before. She then teleports around while swinging her sword. She also summons one red bee, 2 green bees, and 2 blue bees. She can throw the rings from the background again. She repeats this until she is defeated.
The True Arena First Form
Queen Sectonia starts off by eating the Miracle Fruits. Two of her flowers shoot lasers while moving in a circluar pattern. She can try to impale Kirby by shooting vines exactly like Magolor Soul. Her flowers can also shoot lasers in a 90-degree angle and they also can turn into huge spiked buds and roll across the screen. As you get a bit closer to her, she summons 4 flowers instead of 2. they split into groups of two and do their own attacks, like Landia. 2 of them rain Kirby with seeds and the other 2 turn into swords and try to ram Kirby. You get a bit closer to her, and the platform is really small. the 4 buds become electrically charge and try to squeeze Kirby. However, they also ram against the ceiling, doing a bit extra damage. Then, Sectonia gets close to Kirby, and she and her flowers do the laser attack, with less charge time. She then moves to the other side of the screen, and she does it again. The buds turn into swords and try to slash Kirby, with more accuracy. The last attack is the flowers turn into buds and try to pummel Kirby from the background. Kirby then defeats her and she turns into he soul form.
The True Arena Final Form
Sectonia breaks out of the World Tree and attacks Kirby. She teleports around furiously, only stopping to hit kirby with Marx-like cutter boomerangs. After taking a bit of damage, she goes into the background and turns into a huge ball of paint. She turns into pink and blue paint (similar to Marx Soul) with her face on each blob. Sometimes she shoots the paint diagonally. She reforms, and summons the Lord Antrs, while attacking with spiky vines, above and below the platform. She summons red and green Antrs, and shoots Kirby with lasers coming from portals like Magolor Soul. When her health gets below half, she shoots the boomerang projectiles twice, like Marx Soul would. She then turns into a ball of fiery orange paint, and attacks exactly like Drawcia Soul and Grand Doomer's second phase. When she is defeated, she explodes into a mass of light and rainbows, and turns into a barrage of blue and purple petals, and yells her last scream.
To be added.
- Kirby: Triple Deluxe's first six levels' first letters form an acronym when put together in order: FLOWER. This is likely a reference to Queen Sectonia's forms after combining with the Dreamstalk, which are giant flower-like creatures.
- Queen Sectonia is the third female final boss, and the second female main antagonist, in the Kirby series. The others are Grill and Drawcia.
- Sectonia is the second villain to engage Kirby in a surprise final battle at the end of a True Arena subgame, the first being Marx Soul.
- After Queen Sectonia DX's defeat in Extra Mode, the Dimension Mirror appears almost immediately, implying she may be a Mirror World copy of the real Queen Sectonia, similar to Black Dedede and Dark Meta Knight (who are fought, in that order, immediately after her in both Extra Mode and The True Arena).
- With no fewer than four unique themes played during the battles against her, Sectonia arguably has more boss themes in one game than any other boss in the Kirby series.
- Sectonia Soul is the fourth boss to carry the name 'Soul'.
- Queen Sectonia's theme is a major contrast from other villains and final bosses from the Kirby series: whereas other bosses, such as Magolor Soul and Necrodeus, are little more than symbols of evil and chaos, Queen Sectonia has elements of bees and flowers, both of which signify birth and rejuvenation, and is visibly more elegant than most prior villains in the series.
- There is a keychain of Queen Sectonia -- meaning it is a sprite -- despite the model not appearing in any past installments. This is also done with Daranza.
- Queen Sectonia's black lightning attack resembles Dark Matter's attack from Kirby's Dream Land 3.
- Queen Sectoina's name may be derived from the word insect.
- Queen Sectoina is one of the final bosses known to laugh during its fight, the others being Marx, Marx Soul, Drawcia and Necrodeus.
- Her laugh is diverse from other final bosses, making a more feminine sound then a cackle.
