- This article is about the level. For the ship, see Access Ark (ship).
Access Ark is the sixth level of Kirby: Planet Robobot. It has five regular stages, a boss stage, and an EX stage. The level takes place on the mothership of the Haltmann Works Company and as such, features several large interior metallic areas laced with electronics. There are twenty-one Code Cubes to collect in this level, with three in every stage except the Boss one. The bosses are Mecha Knight+ and President Haltmann.

In Meta Knightmare Returns
All stages of Access Ark are played in one sequence in Meta Knightmare Returns except for certain sections involving the Robobot Armor. Through this sequence, four stickers can be found.
In addition, many enemies are re-sized - changing their Health and also possibly movement speed - and President Haltmann, and the Mid-Bosses are changed to their 2.0 forms. Mecha Knight+ is not fought.
From there, Meta Knight squares off with three more bosses in succession. These are Dark Matter Clone, Sectonia Clone and Galacta Knight Returns.
Finally, in place of Code Cubes, side areas yield Meta-Points, which can be used to power Meta Knight's special abilities.
Names in other languages
This is the official English rendering of the Japanese name in-game. The term is likely derived from "access arm", which is the physical arm of a disk reader that moves the laser which reads and writes data.
