Big-Bean Vine is the fourth of seven stages of Grass Land in Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. Kirby unlocks it with the Bean Patch from Rainbow Falls. In it, Kirby is tasked with climbing up a large beanstalk into the clouds, using Balloon Waddle Dees to float further up.
Upon clearing the stage for the first time, the Watering Can Patch is obtained, allowing access to the fight with Fangora.
After throwing the Bean Patch, it settles into a dedicated slot and an animation of a bean vine growing to the area's door begins. After the bean plant is done growing, the door opens. The same bean vine can be watered later to watch it grow further.
The stage plays around a large beanstalk, which grows vertically. At first, Kirby starts on the ground, before ascending into the sky. Kirby (and Prince Fluff in the Wii version's co-op mode) must use the leaves of the vine as platforms to progress; larger, wider leaves are stationary, while smaller leaves will buckle under his weight. As he progreses, Kirby encounters Dandan and Bow Waddle Dee, whose projectiles impede his progress. Later, a pair of Parasol Waddle Dee can be used to reach a treasure.
In the second part of the stage, the ledges the beanstalk provides are placed farther apart, and the level becomes more cloudy. Here, Yin-Yarn patches spawn Balloon Waddle Dees, who can be stood on to get climb higher up the vine. However, their balloons pop after being stood on for too long, so Kirby must jump from one to another to keep ascending the beanstalk. Later, Kirby enters the inside of the beanstalk for some beads, before continuing higher up. The level ends without using a Metamortex transformation, but instead with Kirby balancing on three Balloon Waddle Dees at once before reaching the goal.
