Cloud Palace is the third stage of Dream Land in Kirby's (Extra) Epic Yarn, unlocked by clearing Tempest Towers and obtaining the Pinwheel Patch. This stage takes place high in the clouds, with a lot of careful jumping, followed by a fight with Kracko using the Star Shooter. Completing this stage grants the Boxing Glove Patch, used to unlock Castle Dedede.
Upon throwing the patch, a Waddle Dee appears floating in the air with a pinwheel. Suddenly, a huge windstorm occurs and blows the Waddle Dee away. The storm creates a cloud palace in the air and dissipates, then the door opens.
The stage takes place high up in the clouds along several golden platforms. Given the altitude, there are many pitfalls here, but Kirby can cross them by grabbing onto lines of Pendulum posts with wings that move in formation. Hordes of Boingers also come in handy as stepping stones for Kirby to cross the chasms. After reaching a certain point in the stage, Kracko will appear and chase Kirby for a bit, trying to zap him, but can be outran after a fair distance. From here, a few more wide pits need to be crossed up ahead.
Kirby bounces along the Boingers.
After crossing the previous areas, Kirby can find a Metamortex which will transform him into the Star Shooter, the last of the transformations in the game. Using this, Kirby will need to fly through a great many obstacles up ahead, including Bronto Burts, Shotzos and Buttonbees. At the end of this path, Kracko returns, and Kirby has to fight him. Defeating him grants access to the Reel Gate and the end of the stage.
