CHAPTER 4: Gigaton Trench Edit
Starfy continue's his search for Moe. He heads off the main road and heads into a larger crevice. After a moment, he see's something ahead! It is the mechanical being, Gigaton (known as Gabun in japan). He welcomes Starfy to his home. Suddenly, Konk appears, and strikes Gigaton with a bolt of black magic! Gigaton turns shadowy black! To get past this behemoth, Starfy will have to beat the curse out of him!

Dark Gigaton is the hardest boss in the game to this point. He will attack by shooting three lasers from his mouth and slamming the ground with his pincers! Starfy will have to be brave! Dark Gigaton has 30 HP before he kicks the bucket.
CHAPTER 5: Skydye Heights Edit
Once Dark Gigaton is out of commission, Gigaton thanks Starfy and a Warp Star appears! Boarding it will take Starfy out of the Trench and Rock Bottom altogether! The Star takes our hero to the clouds! Konk is heading somewhere! Maybe Moe is within these clouds...

STAGE BOSS: Konk
At the tippy top of Royal Road, Starfy meets up with Konk! He goes on the attack! Using a powerful tome to give him unimaginable power! This is the prelude to the final battle!

FINALE: Eternal Dreamland Z Edit
A blob of Dark Matter erupts from konk's KO'ed body, and blasts into a lone blue petal on the floor.
It glows and takes the form of a zombified Queen Sectonia! Thus, begins the Last Battle!
Boss 1: Queen Sectonia

True Arena Edit
All 13 bosses have been powered up by sinister magic! As Starfy, You must triumph over the bosses!
When the 13th boss is defeated, the arena starts shaking, and the screen whites out! Then, it is revealed that Dark Matter was using the bosses as a means of expressing control on Popstar!
