Mr. Shine and Mr. Bright (Kirby)

From Atrocious Gameplay Wiki

Mr. Shine and Mr. Bright are duos in the Kirby series, appearing as bosses. While they are major Kirby boss characters, the two have their flaws.

Since when is making a Sun and a Moon a boss a good idea?

Why They Suck

  • In their main appearance in Kirby's Adventure, they switch between the fight, making it incredibly annoying; for example when you are about to deal the final blow, it switches and you have to wait. That completely ruins what would be a good boss to start on paper.
  • When you are fighting one of them, the other can help the one you are fighting. Mr. Shine will rain stars on Kirby, and Mr. Bright will fire a laser, which takes a lot of space. Also, you have to inhale the stars that those attacks produce.
  • In some games like Kirby's Pinball Land and Kirby's Dream Land 3, Mr. Shine has no feet, which is somewhat baffling.
  • In Kirby's Dream Land 2, they gain a new attack, where Mr. Shine creates a safe spot, and Mr. Bright will fill up all the area (except for the safe spot) with light, which damages Kirby if he doesn't get to the safe spot in time. That attack is crap annoying, as it randomly spawns somewhere, to the point where you have to bring either Rick, Kine or Coo with you just to sacrifice them for extra health.
  • Kirby can not inhale the fireballs or blades Mr. Shine and Mr. Bright attack with, and Mr. Bright's fireball is faster than Mr. Shine's blade. They also have the same dash attack, except that Mr. Shine rolls forward, and Mr. Bright charges forward, coated in flames.
  • In Kirby Mass Attack's Strato Patrol EOS subgame, they are not switch bosses, they are TOXIC TEAMERS. You have to fight two of them at the same time.
  • Mr. Bright has a lot of attacks at his disposal, like creating damaging shockwaves, and even firing a laser. And Mr. Shine? He just takes his moon form, bouncing around like a pinball.
  • You better defeat Mr. Shine, because if you just defeat Mr. Bright, Mr. Shine will revive him, similar to the Restocks in the Super Smash Bros. series. If you can handle all of the Mr. Brights, then Mr. Shine will do something way worse. He turns into a manifestation of Mr. Bright, and uses both his own and Mr. Bright's attacks.
  • Their designs are simple, they are just a sun and a moon.

Redeeming Qualities

  • Their designs are awesome, despite WTS#9.
  • Sometimes, you have to fight them in a tag-team mode, Both in Kirby's Pinball Land and Kirby Block Ball. In Kirby's Pinball Land, You defeat Mr. Bright and then Mr. Shine. In Kirby Block Ball, You defeat Mr. Shine and then Mr. Bright, which is a creative idea, and much better than their switch Boss mechanic. To add more cherries on the top, it also inspires bosses from Team Kirby Clash and Super Kirby Clash.
