Aqua Star - Stage 4 is the fourth stage of Aqua Star in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. It takes place entirely underwater, moving along the sea floor and through undersea tunnels and currents.


The last non-boss stage of Aqua Star is entirely underwater, and the first section is a lengthy trench. In navigating the deep chasm, Kirby will encounter many Pedo and Squibby foes, not to mention Glunk enemies lined up at the trench's base. The adjacent area opens into an expansive sea, with coral and deep sea floor crevasses; falling boulders and Flopper enemies are abundant. The great sea becomes another deep chasm in which Kirby must ride the current upwards, towards the surface, and away from the many Glunk and Gordo that are positioned on rocks about the trench. Slipping out of the trench and into a thin undersea canal, Kirby simply floats along, passing the many foes that litter the passage to reach a large Blowfish mini-boss. After its defeat, one more waterlogged expanse, filled with falling rocks and Gordo enemies, and the Picnic lies in wait.
