Nature and Abilities
The Crystal King is invisible, save for his robe, crown and floating yellow eyes. He can disappear and reappear altogether in a flurry of snowflakes.
The Crystal King is exceptionally powerful. He can levitate, summon Crystal Bits to use as ammunition and shoot freezing bolts of blue lightning. In desperation, the King can make fake clones of himself and recover his HP; if not beaten quick enough, the Crystal King will recover 20 HP at least three times, and his army of fake clones will unleash a powerful mist attack.
When Mario defeats him, Crystal King says, "Oh no! The last Star Spirit!! King Bowser, forgive meeeeeeeee!!" before spinning and disappearing in a flurry of sparks.
Like the other bosses, Crystal King appears in the parade at the end during the credits. Two Duplighosts are impersonating him, and the real Crystal King is carried away by his Crystal Bits.
The Crystal King also makes an appearance in volume 27 of Super Mario-Kun. Before the fight, the Crystal King announces his presence using Ice Bolt by freezing Kooper. The Crystal King borrows his attacks from the original game such as hurling Crystal Bits and creating duplicates of himself. After an assortment of attacks, including Mario's using smelly clothing, Kooper uses a flaming shell to defeat the Crystal King.
