Water Planet Aquarius (known as Aqualiss in the original version) is one of the planets which Kirby can visit in Milky Way Wishes, in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra. It is largely aquatic-themed, and has Fatty Whale serving as its Boss. Aquarius is home to three Copy Essences Deluxe. These are Parasol, Sword and Beam.


The stage begins as Kirby falls into a deep body of water from his Warp Star. A door can be found near the bottom of the pool.

From there, Kirby makes his way across a fairly long coastline, dipping in and out of water as he deals with aquatic foes and hops across islands. The way forward is through a door on the very right end of the path.

Kirby then must work his way through a flooded cave system, where pockets of air can be found inside the pools (not that Kirby actually needs these).

The next room features a large air pocket containing a palace surrounded entirely by water. A few Meta-Knights guard this area, though entering the palace is not strictly required, as the actual door forward is in the lower-right corner of the water.

Kirby then finds himself in an underwater tunnel maze swept by tough water currents that cannot be swam against. There are many paths to take here, though only one leads to the boss chamber. The others will eventually lead to a door that takes Kirby back to the beginning of this section.

Copy Essence Deluxe guide[edit]

The following is a basic guide on how to reach each Copy Essence Deluxe on Planet Aquarius:

In the area with the branching underwater paths, Kirby must make a specific route from the beginning to get to this essence; down, right, down, right, up.
In the first long stretch of the stage, this essence can be found through a doorway hidden by a palm tree. Breaking a Bomb Block below reveals the doorway.
Deep into the path, Kirby finds a doorway guarded by a horde of Meta-Knights. Entering this door leads to a challenge involving spike pits, a bunch of Blade Knights, and an encounter with Jukid. Defeating this mid-boss yields this essence.

Boss: Fatty Whale[edit]

Kirby hunts the red whale.
Main article: Fatty Whale

Fatty Whale is encountered at the end of the stage, in an area which looks practically identical to the one in The Great Cave Offensive. This boss's attack pattern is exactly the same as before, using its girth to body slam and causing rocks to fall from the ceiling. Defeating Fatty Whale completes the stage.
