|“||We are the masters of a power driven to the far reaches of the universe, and we have but one desire! Can one such as you possibly fathom how dearly we have clung to this dream across the aeons? How could you! You couldn’t! Never ever ever! We who once faced those who were in such fear of our power that they sealed us away and banished us to the edge of the galaxy! US! As if THAT loveliness wasn’t enough, they tried to erase our very existence from history! RUDE! Only through our magic were we able to overcome their science and achieve great prosperity! We alone were responsible for stopping that repulsive nightmare of a galactic crisis, yet this is how you repay us! This won’t stand! It won’t be forgiven! It won’t be forgotten! Never ever EVER! Those who called us mad, are you listening? You left us at the edge of the galaxy to be forgotten, then went along your merry way, probably living somewhere pretty and peaceful! But know this! Your future is a farce! You have none! We, masters of a matter most dark, vow to be restored, as foretold in the book of legend, which everyone thought was just a fairy tale! It WASN’T! We have already obtained the vessel that contains our Dark Lord, and he will soon awaken and shower us in compassion! Look! The vessel of our Dark Lord is filling up even as we speak! Now the time for his greatness to enter our world has come! Welcome to a new history! A new age! The age of awesome! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DARK LORD! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Grace us, Gloriously Dark Looooooord!||„|
|~ Hyness' infamously long speech about his people and motivations during the main story in Star Allies|
|“||Hyness' prayer opened a path from another dimension...to new dimensions untold. What possibilities await? Will you be a Dream Friend? Will you face even greater evil?||„|
|~ The beginning of Heroes in Another Dimension's pause description • Kirby Star Allies|
Lord Hyness is the cloaked priest leader of the Three Mage-Sisters and the Jambastion cult, an organization that worships Void Termina, their Dark Lord. Hyness, and presumably the Mage-Sisters, were banished to the edge of the universe long ago by unknown authorities. Apparently they were feared for their immense power. During his rant, Hyness says that he and his people were responsible for saving everyone from an unexplored "galactic crisis". He also says that those unknown authorities tried to erase them from history and that some called them mad. It's presumed that the Ancients were the ones fearing his power, but the truth remains a mystery.
During Heroes in Another Dimension he fell into a hole leading to Another Dimension and opened portals into several dimensions in it. He ended up swallowed by and trapped in a giant Jamba Heart, which corrupted him and made him more powerful, becoming Corrupt Hyness. It was revealed that he used to lead his people in a wiser way before his dark feelings got the better of him. He's ultimately restored to normal and is suggested that he and his people became more sociable towards the rest of the universe, no longer trying to destroy everything and peaceably hanging out in places, even if they are still practitioners their dark arts.
Powers and Stats
Tier: 4-A | At least 4-A | At least 4-A
Origin: Kirby Star Allies
Age: Unknown, has lived for "aeons"
Powers and Abilities:
Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Speed Talking (Once spoke at a rate of about 1,274 WPM or around 21 WPS), Non-Physical Interaction (Scaling from the Mage-Sisters, who can affect Void Soul), Self-Sustenance (Type 1), Body Control (Can quickly rotate his head several times with no repercussion), Magic, Flight, Power Bestowal (Unlocked the natural power for magic of the Three Mage-Sisters, also seen as giving them powerful magic), Biological Manipulation (Unlocking the natural power of Francisca caused her body to turn blue, the same presumably happened to Flamberge and Zan Partizanne with their respective colors), Healing (Saved Francisca, Flamberge and Zan Partizanne from nearly dying), Energy Manipulation, Energy Projection, Light Manipulation, Darkness Manipulation, Fire Manipulation, Electricity Manipulation, Ice Manipulation, Berserk Mode (After losing his hood), Can summon the Three Mage-Sisters or logs dressed as them), Life Absorption (Drained energy from the Mages, leaving their bodies dark), Weapon Mastery (Can use the Mages' bodies or those logs offensively and defensively. They can also reflect projectiles), Telekinesis, Danmaku, Portal Creation and Dimensional Travel (His repeated chants opened a rift in the fabric of space that led to Another Dimension), Space-Time Manipulation (His actions broke down the fabric of spacetime), Resistance to Empathic Manipulation and Morality Manipulation (Unaffected by the presence of the individual Jamba Hearts, had numerous of them flying and merging in front of him in the place where Void Termina was sealed, forming a giant Jamba Heart. Was only corrupted after being swallowed and trapped by a complete giant Jamba Heart from Another Dimension for unknown periods of time. Comparable, if not superior to the resistance of the Three Mage-Sisters)
With Preparation he was able to achieve the following things: Resistance to Sealing (Overcame being sealed. Broke Void Termina's seal, although not entirely), limited Resurrection (Was doing a long ritual to resurrect Void Termina, which should only apply to his unique physiology) and likely Forcefield Creation (Without the Mage-Sisters in it, the Jambandra Base had a massive barrier bigger than planets which automatically appreciated when others approached)
As before but amped in the power and scale of some offensive powers, can no longer summon the Mage-Sisters
As the first key but amped in power, and likely the ability to make Friend Hearts (A small Friend Heart reached and purified him after his defeat in his Corrupt form, when a normal Friend Heart bestows the ability to generate them. This would give him Empathic Manipulation, Morality Manipulation, Purification, extended Healing and Power Bestowal)
Attack Potency: Multi-Solar System level (Fought Kirby and 3 other Star Allies at once after they defeated the Three Mage-Sisters; It's up to interpretation if he's stronger than the Mage-Sisters given that gameplay-wise he's weaker, Hyness' higher rank on their organization potentially suggests something about it. Became stronger than before and than the Mage Sisters after absorbing their power [Although Zan Partizanne was unconsciously defeated at the time]), can ignore durability in some ways | At least Multi-Solar System level (Gained more power after being corrupted by a giant Jamba Heart that was complete, which on its own should have been able to transform into another Void Termina, as the other giant Jamba Heart did in the main story of Star Allies once completed; While it's unknown how much power Hyness received, he was described as an "even greater evil", likely placing him above the previous threat that was the Void Termina Kirby & co. defeated before. Fought Kirby and three other Star Allies), can ignore durability in some ways | At least Multi-Solar System level (Should maintain his boost in power after being purified in Heroes in Another Dimension, much like the Mage-Sisters), can ignore durability in some ways
Speed: Massively FTL+ (Was the one who suddenly scattered the Jamba Heart pieces across the universe [See note below] and kept up with beings capable to react, outrun and chase them. Comparable to Kirby and the Star Allies, which includes characters such as Meta Knight, Marx, Gooey and Ribbon. Above the Three Mage-Sisters, which were sent to find the Dark Hearts that rained down across the "galaxy" and bring them to him, which they were manually doing during the main story of Star Allies, which had no indication of lasting more than a week, if not much less time)
Lifting Strength: At least Regular Human, higher with magic (Can lift the Three Mage-Sisters hovering around and use them as projectiles)
Striking Strength: Multi-Solar System Class | At least Multi-Solar System Class | At least Multi-Solar System Class
Durability: Multi-Solar System level (Traded blows with Kirby and the Star Allies) | At least Multi-Solar System level (Vastly more durable than before, took hits from Kirby and three Star Allies after they defeated Void Termina) | At least Multi-Solar System level
Stamina: Very high (Comparable to Kirby)
Range: Standard melee range physically, Interstellar with projectiles, higher with preparation (Scattered the dark Jamba Heart pieces across the universe), Low Multiversal with portals to Another Dimension
Intelligence: Genius. Considered a genius among the mages, Hyness holds the position of a high-ranked priest, elite mage and "noble being", which made him the head of the Mage-Sisters and leader of his people. His magic appears to be among the greatest in the Kirby universe, feared by unknown authorities and able to overcome unspecified science. As a leader, Hyness has been described as having an "intoxicating charisma", he and his group were responsible for stopping a "galactic crisis" and they achieve great prosperity after they tried to erase their "very existence from history". He also possesses the skills to fight many beings at once. He was aware of the existence of a different dimension and how to open a portal to it, as well as the dangers of crossing time and space through said portal
Weaknesses: Completely insane. Arguably has a poor memory (Cannot remember the exact name of Zan Partizanne)
Keys: Pre-Heroes in Another Dimension | Corrupt Hyness | Post-Heroes in Another Dimension
- Survived Void Termina's death explosion in the form of a supernova, being near the epicenter moments before it and distancing an unknown amount of space.
Note: There is an inconsistency in regards to whether the Jamba Heart Pieces were scattered across the universe or the galaxy. The former seems to be the case given how Pop Star is located at the edge of the universe and the Jamba Hearts were scattered on another edge of the universe described as "the far reaches of the universe", being "far away from the universe", and having an alternate dimension version of the place called "the precipice of another dimension". The Jamba Hearts were scattered from the main universe version of that place to Pop Star. Additionally, Marx was described to "roll across galaxies" twice to help in the process of going from Pop Star to the place where the Jamba Hearts were scattered, and Hyness was described as a "mage from another galaxy", all of which wouldn't be possible if the Jamba Hearts and Hyness were in the same galaxy.
