This article is about stages in the Kirby Fighters games. For stages in a general context, see Stage.

A Battle Stage (sometimes shortened to Stage) is any distinct area which appears as a setting for battles in the Kirby Fighters games. These are confined areas which feature various layouts, with some including additional platforms, stage hazards, and/or other interactive elements. Each of these stages (with a few exceptions) is set in a distinct location from a previous Kirby game, and often includes stage music lifted directly from the area being showcased.

As of Kirby Fighters 2, there are a total of 22 selectable stages throughout all of the Kirby Fighters games. Kirby Fighters 2 features the greatest number of distinct selectable stages at 20, with an additional three being non-selectable.
