Taranza is the antagonist of Kirby: Triple Deluxe.
Kirby: Triple Deluxe Edit
In the game's opening sequence, King Dedede and his Waddle Dee royal guard are ambushed by Taranza, a new and mysterious figure. Dedede is kidnapped up into the heights of Floralia, and Kirby sets out on a new adventure to rescue the king.
In Lollipop Land, Dedede continues to be in the clutches of Taranza. Kirby confronts Taranza but he escapes after summoning Paintra to battle Kirby.
- Taranza shares strong visual similarities with Magolor, another Kirby villain, from Kirby's Return to Dreamland: "both are floating creatures who wear scarfs, have a cape, possess disembodied hands and use magic."
- Kirby: Triple Deluxe is the first game Taranza appears in.
