Dimension Mirror is the tenth and final level in Kirby and The Amazing Mirror. It is unlocked when Kirby collects all of the Mirror Shards from defeating the Bosses in each level of the game. When all the shards have been collected, the mirror-shaped portal, which was deactivated when Dark Meta Knight split the mirror into shards, will turn gold once again. At this point, the portal to Dimension Mirror has been restored, and the four Kirbys can face Dark Meta Knight and vanquish Dark Mind.

Areas & Appearances

Dimension Mirror is split up into nine areas. At the end of each area is a mirror-shaped portal which teleports the Kirbys to the next area. The first area is where Dark Meta Knight makes its last appearance in the game. It has a large, circular, purple cloud looming above everything which stretches across the entire length of the sky. There also seems to be what looks like the ruins of a coliseum in the background, which could be a reference from a past Kirby game. Afterwards is the area where Dark Mind makes its first appearance, with blue rotating circles filling in the space; with smaller, darker blue circles towards the middle. The Kirbys walks on brown cloud-shaped material, with small stars floating above and next to it. Following is what appears to be the inside of ruins. It has a very similar background to other ruin levels in the Kirby series, with placed blocks making up the walls, and ladders placed so the Kirbys may climb them. Inside are three switches which must be pressed in order to open the two door pillars which block them from continuing. The pillars close soon after the button is pressed, so the player must get passed the pillars quickly in order to advance. Out of the three pillars, the Kirbys only have to get passed two, because if a Kirby gets stuck between the last two pillars, it can climb the ladder to advance. At the end of the area are two steps leading to the exit portal, with an enemy in each one. Their abilities can be copied by pressing the B button, causing Kirby so suck them out of the stairs and into its mouth. In the fourth area, Dark Mind reappears, and it is very similar to the first area Dark Mind is battled from. However, the cloud-shaped material is replaced by blocks, and there are two platforms at the left and right-most parts of the screen. Next is an area which is very similar to Cabbage Cavern. The walls are purple, with bunches of purple and whitish-pink material around it. There are four star boxes for the four Kirbys, with a ditch for each of them to fall into. Each ditch has a water current flowing downwards, so the Kirbys can't go back up. Three of the four have something it is, such as a 1-up in the ditch furthest to the right. The second ditch from the right has a cherry, the second to the left is empty, and the left-most ditch has a Maxim Tomato. At the end of the area are once again steps with enemies inside of them, and a Gordo under water. Directly after is yet another place where the Kirbys must defeat Dark Mind, but the left and right parts of the ground have been dug out and filled with water. Beside each is a rocky area, which is part of the background, so it cannot be interacted with. Succeeding is an area similar to Peppermint Palace, with snowy walls and floating blue blocks. Around are bombable walls, spikes, and a switch which can only be activated with a move which goes through walls because the switch is behind one. Subsequently is yet another area where Dark Mind must be defeated, with the ground now covered in ice. Finally is the last area, with red and purple smears as clouds, and a bridge which Kirby stands on floating an inch or two from the bottom of the screen.

The Dimension Mirror area appears again in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, though it only consists of one area, namely, the ruined version of the colosseum from Rainbow Route. Here, Dark Meta Knight is fought again in a surprise encounter, as Dark Meta Knight's Revenge.
