Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Magolor comes from the planet Halcandra and captains the Lor Starcutter starship. One day, he crashes his ship on Planet Pop Star, this destroys the Starcutter, spreading it's parts across Pop Star's many territories. He is eventually discovered by Kirby, King Dedede, Meta Knight, and Bandana Waddle Dee. He asks for their help, originally coming off as an unlucky captain. After Kirby and co. fixes the Starcutter, he takes them to his planet of Halcandra, but he is shot down by the dragon Landia. After Kirby defeats Landia, however, Magolor shows his true self, an evil, greedy monster who wants to take over the world. The only thing that was stopping Magolor from reaching this goal was Landia, who was guarding the Master Crown. He pretends to congratulate Kirby on taking down Landia, but then grabs up the Crown and throws it on his head. He completely changes his look, and reveals that he originally attacked Landia, but was beaten, so he crashed the Starcutter on Pop Star. He then met Kirby, and used him as a soldier to take down Landia. He then opens up a wormhole, and flies off, bent on taking over the universe. Kirby and co. awaken Landia, and chase Magolor down. They follow him to another dimension, and He attacks in the Dark Starcutter. They destroy the Starcutter, and fight Magolor. After the battle, he falls, only to rise up again in a more demonic form. Kirby and Co. then fight him again and beat him, this time for real. He falls, and the Master crown is destroyed. Magolor reverts back to his normal form, and disappears.

Despite his apparent destruction, When the player gets 100% completion, He appears to congratulate the player.

Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition

Magolor returns as an opponent in the exclusive Challenge Stages as a competitive rival of sorts. As Kirby races him, he will summon enemies and shoot fireballs to slow him down, and attempt to pick up Score Coins. Magolor will also phase through breakable walls and obstacles. The final race, aptly named "Magolor Race EX," features Magolor using his powers to race more quickly. Since their last encounter, the two appear to be on friendlier terms. The races take place on mechanical gear-filled racecourses that match his personal attire and styling. The races are suspended high above the skies of Dream Land, the last one taking place inside Another Dimension.

Aside from that, a commemorative gold 8-bit statuette of Magolor is visible in the museum mode and he also appears as one of Stone Kirby's transformations. Magolor also appears in the credits.
