Danger under the Big Top is the fifth and final main stage of Wondaria Remains in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. This stage is unlocked after completing The Wondaria Dream Parade and requires Kirby to have saved at least 21 Waddle Dees in Wondaria Remains to enter. In this stage, Kirby does battle with the Lethal Leopard and executive of the Beast Pack, Clawroline, in order to free the Waddle Dees she has caged up.

There are no Capsules to collect in this stage, but there are five missions to complete. There are a total of seven Waddle Dees to rescue here. The blueprint for Pencil Drill can be found here.

Stage overview[edit]

Kirby narrowly dodges Clawroline's dash attack in the Big Top battle.

The stage begins as Kirby enters the rafters of the Big Top. As he walks around the seats, he can see a cloaked figure standing perfectly still in the middle of the stage. As he heads toward the ramp leading down to the stage, Kirby passes by Copy Essences for Ranger, Sword, and Bomb. Once he reaches the stage, more lights turn on, temporarily blinding him. When he comes to, the cloaked figure dramatically disrobes, revealing herself to be the Lethal Leopard: Clawroline.

Main article: Clawroline

The battle with Clawroline is a dramatic one, since the stage lights are used to accentuate nearly every attack. Clawroline's performance includes fast claw swipes, a jumping slam attack, and a lightning-fast charge. In the second phase of the fight, she hops onto the towers surrounding the stage and throws knives at Kirby, which can be swallowed for the Sword ability. From here, she then does a dive from the tower to try and hit Kirby, throwing out deadly shockwaves on landing. Clawroline also performs a vanishing act, reappearing behind Kirby to strike him with her claws. When Clawroline is defeated, she unceremoniously falls over and then vanishes, leaving Kirby to collect the Waddle Dees and the blueprint for Pencil Drill.

Differences between difficulties[edit]

There are no differences in the stage between Spring-Breeze Mode and Wild Mode.


Danger under the Big Top has five missions to complete, as follows:

  • "Clear the stage" - Kirby simply has to defeat Clawroline and rescue the three caged Waddle Dees.
  • "Hit high-up Clawroline using Ranger" - During the second phase of the fight, Kirby must shoot at and hit Clawroline using Ranger or one of its variants while she is up on one of the towers.
  • "Defeat without hovering" - Kirby must defeat Clawroline without ever using his hover.
  • "Clear within 1:30" - Kirby must defeat Clawroline within a minute and 30 seconds.
  • "Clear without taking any damage" - Kirby must defeat Clawroline without taking damage.
