Chapter 13 (Flashback)
Mariels are spider-like animal members of the Dark Matter species and they are one of the animal species that survived the destruction of Planet Dark Star along with Minion Matters, N-Zs, Nidoos and Armomatters.
They were inspired by Mariel, a enemy from Kirby's Dream Land 3 and Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.
Kirby: Behind the Scenes 3: Chronicles of DarknessEdit
A Mariel that appeared in Chapter 13 marked the species' debut along side a Nidoo, Minion Matter and a N-Z.
