Well now. That's most certainly a reveal. What do you guys think?
If you guys are interested in my behind-the-scenes thoughts, I've decided to keep it in a separate Google Doc rather than put in the longest comment probably ever made on Smack Jeeves. It's a whopping 21 pages of information. To put that in perspective, both Infiltration and Master of Puppets' comments ended up being around 6 pages on GDocs. That means this is more than three times the length of those giant comments. It took me a week and a half to write out. HAVE FUN READING IT.
In other news, I've started to go through some old KA pages and give them visual upgrades and a few dialogue tweaks. Nothing major, just really making them fit in with the more recent pages' style. The entirety of The First Mission has been upgraded, so feel free to give that a reread if you're interested.
Next time on Kirby Adventure, though... this segment was the beginning of the end, now it's time for segment that's the middle.
That really doesn't sound very climactic, so how about instead I call it "the final battle"? There, that feels more appropriate.

Well, I can certainly say I wasn't expecting that.
Cherry the Puffball,
...Time to go read 21 pages' worth of commentary... *sigh*

So its not Zero, but that's...
If you need me, I'll be reading those 21 pages too.

Well then, I was not expecting it to be Miracle Matter.lstaff4,

Huh. I guess we won't need the placeholder name anymore.
Edit: I just read the 21 page thing and holy crap did you make a lot of plans for this comic. I would've been stoked to see Break but hey. Plans change. And you change a whole lot of them.

Yeah, sorry Ultizeta, to lazy to read it all at the moment. Although, this makes me wonder....
How will Dark Matter react to Miracle Matter?
October 14th, 2016, 10:57 pmReply
You know I wouldn't of guessed it to be honest, no one really talks about it at all on the internet.
I've never fought the boss myself but I always thought that bosses that had the same abilities as the protagonist were kinda cool, most of the time underwhelming but it's the thought that counts.

@Elemental Kirby: It doesn't Matter
...I'll see myself out

Certainly not who I was expecting, though I'm more shocked that MSG's red eyes turned out to actually be one eye.
EDIT: Nice custom Miracle Matter sprite, by the way.

...Well, Gigi was right. He does indeed have red eyes, plural.KirbyFighterDeluxe,
October 15th, 2016, 3:22 amReply
Welp, that happened.
Pretty good move, I'd say. We were all expecting a final boss or something of the sort, and Miracle Matter is pretty obscure and not very memorable, so it works really well.

Not what I was expecting, although it doesn't surprise me now that I know. Also puns. And 21 pages. Yey.Jarkes,

Unfortunately, the reveal kind of got spoiled by the page preview on the Webcomic Profile page. I'm not sure if there's any way around that, but it probably doesn't matter at this point.
Still, I certainly didn't expect Miracle Matter to be the main villain.
October 15th, 2016, 6:24 pmReply
@Planetbox: Eh, that preview'll go away in like eight pages from now.
And honestly, everyone currently following this would've read the page immediately anyway, and anyone who comes in later has the chance of that preview image having been rolled off. The only people it'll spoil are new readers who come in right about now.

@CapedLuigisYoshi Unfortunately, it did spoil me because I have the Webcomic Profile bookmarked.Kirbyfan27 (Guest),

I read all 21 pages.
Now I wish that we could have read Break.
October 16th, 2016, 12:31 pmReply
...Also, I'm kind of curious now. Do you have sprite sheets for what Break was originally going to be?Jarkes,
October 16th, 2016, 4:58 pmReply
Oh, wow. Didn't see that coming.
...Hey, wait a second, years ago you told me that the main villain ("MSG" as we called him back then) was not an already existing Kirby villain. Did you change your plans, or were you just lying when you said that?
October 16th, 2016, 5:03 pmReply
@Jarkes: Well, 03 isn't exactly an already existing Kirby villain. Then Ulti changed his plans and a miracle happened.Jarkes,
October 16th, 2016, 8:27 pmReply
@Kirbyfan27: "03"? I'm guessing that's mentioned in his 21-page Google Docs thing... Haven't read that yet.Kooper,

Boy howdy, we're in for a ride. Are we going to see a vast, epic spectacle of a battle between Dark Matter and it's creator?Kirbyfan27,
October 17th, 2016, 6:59 pmReply
If the next segment is the final battle, then is the segment afterwards the credits?
Light and Shadow,
...Or something like that?

I just PUMPED my fist because I was RIGHT about who the evil one was gonna be! Miracle Matter is like my favorite boss EVER! Thank you so much for including him in!
However where there's a Miracle Matter, there's usually Zero nearby... uness MM is acting on his own... *wilybrows*
And thanks for the shoutout, too! I never thought I'd be right about something. <3

THIS BOSS WAS KINDA BORING AND I NEVER CARED ABOUT HIM BUT MASTER OF PUPPETS SHOWS YOU'RE GOOD AT MAKING NON-MEMORABLE CHARACTERS MEMORABLE SO I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHERE THIS WOULD GOOOOOOO

This comic has been going on for so long, it's amazing that every time you do a plot thickener (is that right?) like that, everyone is still suprised by each and every one.
Seriously, I'm pretty sure everyone here who reads and/or comments on this is very grateful that you decided to finish this. It's a great comic, and one i really enjoy following.

Huh. Can't say that I saw this coming, though that would explain Dark Matter slightly.gmandude (Guest),

Reading the discussions we had on Infiltration - Part 33 during the hiatus puts a smile on my face from how many nice conversations we had back then.
We got sort of close with the idea that Shadowy Red Eyes would be Zero in some shape or form, but yeah, Miracle Matter was a great choice if you wanted to throw people off.
