Dark Star is the final realm in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, and it is here where Kirby's mission to vanquish the realm of Dark Matter ends. The prerequisite to reach this star is to locate all of the scattered Crystal Shards from across the realm, and Miracle Matter, the boss of the Ripple Star, must be defeated. While defeating Miracle Matter will superficially rid the realm of Dark Matter, the Fairy Queen at the helm of the government on Pop Star will still be affected by the exploits of , the source of the Dark Matter located at the core of the Dark Star. By using the power of the Crystal Shards, Zero Two is defeated and peace returns to the entire realm, including that of the Fairy Queen.

Synopsis

The Dark Star is held together and supplied by 0², the monster at its core.

There isn't much to this level, beyond the major boss fight. Kirby begins on a series of hexagonal platforms in the middle of a red Void, and must progress to the right. There will be several N-Z blocking his way, but they won't be too much a hindrance. Waddle Dee opens up the way to the next room by bursting a hole through the floor.

In the next room, Adeleine paints a Maxim Tomato for Kirby as her last gift to him. From there, Kirby gets a boost into the air from King Dedede to begin the fight proper.

The last part of the level is the fight with , which is done using the Fairy Wings-Crystal Gun ability. This is the only part of the game where Kirby and Ribbon are controlled in a full 3-D space in order to encircle the boss and shoot at its weak points. When 0² is defeated, it explodes in dramatic fashion, destroying Dark Star along with it.

Ending Cut-scene

Kirby and Co. escape Dark Star as it convulses, then explodes. Back on Ripple Star, fireworks fill the night sky as the Fairy Queen awards crystal medals to each of the heroes from Pop Star. When Kirby gets his medal, Ribbon comes forward and gives him a kiss on the cheek. At this, Kirby blushes and stumbles backward, causing him to fall down the stairs. The cut-scene ends frozen on this moment as Kirby's friends panic to catch him.

From here, the credits roll, and the game is complete.
