Releasing the Alliance
Meta Knight is called in to put a stop to a Squeak insurrection in Dreamland, still trapped in the 2nd Dimension. By this time, the Squeaks, led by Daroach, have wounded King Dedede and seized the throne room. As Meta Knight arrives, King Dedede uses a fallen Kirby as a projectile to take out most of the Squeaks. Daroach remains alive, however, taking Meta Knight head on. While Meta Knight avoids the mouse's magic, a trick bomb shatters Meta Knight's mask. Meta Knight is ready, however, and sets up a fake chest for Daroach to open. As the Squeak claims his prize, several demons pour from the chest, including Magolor, Nightmare, Marx Soul, Dark Mind, 02, and Dark Nebula. For his part, Dark Nebula possesses Daroach, durning the Squeak into a demonic slave. As a reward for his service, Magolor teleports Meta Knight into the third dimension.
