Aqua Star - Stage 2 is the second stage of Aqua Star in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. This stage has Kirby running up and down a series of waterfalls alongside tall green cliffs.


The second stage is based on a slow-moving river, a system that physically carries though to the level's end. At its opening, Kirby has the opportunity to absorb Bomb and Stone copy abilities from foes, and encounters simple creatures such as Gordo, Bouncy, and Bronto Burts, as well. Like in the previous stage, the first section becomes a cavernous area; however, this time, more obstacles are present, such as falling platforms, uneven ground, and enemies such as Propeller and Emp. The cave ends and opens out to a battle with a large Kany, on a tiered wooden arena. The river continues out of the cavern and back into the earlier forest-like setting, but now Kirby is able to ride the water with Waddle Dee all the way to the waterfall's end. Interestingly, to reach the Bonus Game, Kirby must walk back up the other side of the river, against the current, and against the rolling Splinter logs.
