Aqua Star - Stage 1
The first stage is overall summer-themed, covered with palm trees and sunny skies. The first portion of the level has Kirby venturing through a waterfront landscape, inhabited by Floppers, Pompeys, Bobos, and Kapar, albeit others. This beach scene merges into a cavernous setting; Zebon, which are used to ascend a tall, vertical chasm within the cave, are abundant. Avoiding the Glom on the cave's upper level, Kirby makes his way deeper into the cavern, encountering foes such as Galbo and Yariko in the next expanse. At the level's halfway point, a large Tick waits to be defeated, and in the event Kirby does so, he is rewarded a Crystal Shard (or a Blue Star if he's bested the mini-boss previously). Adeleine paints Kirby a Maxim Tomato as he exits the cave and passes through one final highland section before the level ends.

|The first Crystal Shard can be found in a tall cave area with the Zebon. It is underneath a trio of Scarfies that Kirby will blast through on the way up.|
|The second shard is obtainable after defeating the Mid-Boss Tick.|
|The third shard can be found at the area with the bridges in front of a huge waterfall. The Ice-Bomb ability is needed to break a small platform at the bottom, where a Zebon is waiting to shoot Kirby up to the shard.|
