75% of the time it took to make this comic was spent making the custom Taranza sprite. It was worth it.
Spriting as a whole is actually a lot more fun for me if I'm not worrying about multiple poses.

@Ultizeta: Why didn't you just recolor the 8-bit Taranza from the game's keychain collection?
And now we've tied in the Triple Deluxe canon so soon we should see Kirby piloting Robobot armor right?

@Light and Shadow: Triple Deluxe's 8-bit keychains are awful sprites. They're not even proper 8-bit style, and their poses are horrendously awkward. Not to mention the relative size is all off, anyway.
Also, canonically, Mass Attack is the last Kirby game to happen within this comic. Without Return to Dream Land, Triple Deluxe, and Rainbow Curse all having not happened yet, tying anything into Planet Robobot that strongly would be skipping a LOT of Kirby.

@Light and Shadow: kirby hasnt even used the robobot once in this comic, though!!!!
i love the robobot as much as the next guy but it just wouldnt make sense
"hey kirbone heres a big robot for you to pilot and punch whatever big bad in the face"
"hey cool thanks poyo"

Is this mirror world Taranza or no?
Because if no there's a huge problem.

@Ultizeta: Maybe you can have Kirby use an Ultra ability.Ultizeta,

@Elemental Kirby: I would love to know what you think is the huge problem if Taranza isn't from the Mirror World.
@KirbyFighterDeluxe: Nah, if it was, then it'd look different.
@Redkirby: Eh, that one's at least possible given the time frame, but unlikely.

I feel like you probably shouldn't give things to Taranza for safekeeping but maybe that's just meCapedLuigisYoshi,

@Nashew: Why not? He's got like six hands, all the better to hang onto that mirror with! Nothing bad could possibly come of this!
...Although... given everything that's been happening in the series, I do wonder how the events of the yet-to-happen games would play out in this universe's future. Especially with there suddenly being a not-evil Dark Matter floating around.

@Ultizeta: Well, before I say anything else, is this the before or after Kirby Triple Deluxe?Ultizeta,
July 15th, 2016, 9:51 pmReply
@Elemental Kirby: ...Before? Look at all the context clues. Mass Attack JUST HAPPENED. I've stated multiple times that I follow a timeline that has each game take place in the same order of their release. Kirby's never said anything about Triple Deluxe's story either, to boot, which would be very odd had this all happened after Triple Deluxe.DarkNut255,

I'm not sure if I've just forgotten, but I'm fairly certain that KA hasn't gotten to the events of Return yet, so I don't think we're at Triple Deluxe proper here, but more of a prelude to said game.KirbyFighterDeluxe,

@Ultizeta: Oh, so..... this is awkward because now I feel like an idiot....
Light and Shadow,
So my thought was that Taranza was going to use the Dimension Mirror to try and do something that would benefit Queen Sectonia.
