Landia is a boss that appears in Kirby's Return to Dream Land that resides in Halcandra and serves as the final boss in Dangerous Dinner. Landia appears as a four headed orange dragon, where the top head of the dragon carries the Master Crown. Landia may be split into four separate dragons, on which it can be ridden.

The following may reveal important information about the game's storyline. If you do not wish to read it, skip ahead to the next heading.

In the story of Kirby's Return to Dream Land, Magolor commands Kirby to go and defeat Landia, as Landia attacked the Lor Starcutter, Magolor's ship, as Magolor arrived at Halcandra, along with Kirby. Landia in the extra mode are changed into purple and looks like the later version of Spyro the Dragon (including new abilities are added). Upon Landia's defeat by Kirby, it is revealed that Magolor and Landia had a past conflict, and Magolor only commanded Kirby to defeat Landia to obtain the Master Crown, which would render him the ruler of the universe. Landia, now consisting of four small dragons, then assists Kirby and accompanying friends, in chasing Magolor and the Lor Starcutter when Magolor escapes into the Another Dimension realm. Once Magolor and his mutation Magolor Soul are defeated, Landia, along with the now friendly Lor Starcutter, assists Kirby in returning to Dream Land.
