Official art for Petey Piranha
Petey Piranha is the first boss that you encounter in the Subspace Emissary. Petey Pirahna is from the Mario series.Wario originally sends Mario flying off with a cannonball shot and you are left fighting Petey with Kirby. Petey holds up two cages in the match. One with Princess Zelda inside and the other Princess Peach.
Unlike most bosses, Petey has two health bars, one for each cage he is holding. Only one cage needs to be completely destroyed before Petey is defeated. Also, if you attack Petey himself, both cages will be damaged. The princess whose cage was destroyed will join your party; the other will be turned into a trophy and taken by Wario. She will be unavailable until you rescue her.
 Fighting Petey
Petey is the first boss, and is very easy at that. His attacks are not very powerful, and he uses the same moves each time. Just choose a princess you want to rescue, and target that cage. Petey should go down without a fight. The princess you choose affects the story in subtle ways such as which character you get to play as in some parts of the story.
