Crash Clouds is the third stage of Revenge of the King in Kirby Super Star Ultra. It is a harder version of Bubbly Clouds from Spring Breeze, and features a similar topography, the same theme music, a similar opening cutscene, and a similar boss, in the form of Kracko's Revenge. Apart from the different coloration, a few differences include tougher and different enemies, and a generally expanded topography.

In the opening cutscene, Kirby sneezes, causing a few tiny stars to fall. He sneezes again, but unlike the original, where Kirby is knocked off by stars, a sleeping Galbel falls onto him. The Galbel lets out a small sneeze while it is sleeping. Even though it appears in the opening cutscene, Galbel does not appear in the stage itself.

The stage begins with Kirby landing on a Croucars in the cloudy fortress. Past the Blatzys and other opponents, the door to the next area can be reached.

From there, the cloud fields become more open, as Kirby must progress to the right.

Kirby stumbles onto more solid ground, but more foes await him here.

In the next chamber, Kirby must do battle with Kracko Jr.'s Revenge. Defeating it yields a Warp Star, which Kirby can ride to the next area.

Back on the cloud palace walls, Kirby will have to bust through some soldiers and their big wall of Star Blocks before proceeding.

In the last area, Kirby will need to ascend past several disconnected islets. The door at the top leads to the boss encounter (details in section below).

Boss: Kracko's Revenge[edit]

Kirby shields himself from Kracko's Revenge's spark blasts using Waddle Doo.

Kracko's Revenge ambushes Kirby at the top of the tower. Its attack patterns are largely the same as Kracko's, but it has enhanced stamina and speed. Kracko has a new attack where he moves at the center of the screen and shoots lightning bolts in all 8 directions.

Defeating Kracko's Revenge yields a Sparkling Star, and allows Kirby to progress to the next level, Mt. Dedede Sky.
