Dedede Gogogo - Stage 1 is the first stage of the Dedede Gogogo Sub-Game in Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. It takes place in an environment similar to Patch Castle from the main game, with royal banners and castle arches used as decor throughout. This stage is available upon starting the main game. The main theme of Dedede Gogogo plays throughout the stage.


King Dedede approaching the first large bell of the stage

This stage involves King Dedede traversing mostly flat ground and smashing through any blocks or enemies in his way with his mighty hammer. Within the first five or so seconds of starting the stage, Dedede will encounter a variety of obstacles, including Cloth Blocks, Star Bead Blocks and Boom Blocks. He will also collect the first Lumina of the Sub-Game.

From here, Dedede will proceed into a castle-like section with semisolid platforms that create branching paths. One path contains a yarn mole that suddenly bursts from the ground when Dedede draws near. After this segment, Dedede must contend with Red Buttonbees while collecting Fuse Beads. He can then hit a large bell to obtain 20 more beads before performing a Head Slide under a series of Denim Blocks. Awaiting him on the other side of these blocks is a yarn mole, a Red Buttonbee, and another Lumina.

Dedede must then chase a Sneak Sack, sliding underneath Denim Blocks and collecting even more beads along the way. If Dedede is quick enough, he will eventually catch the Sneak Sack and recieve a reward of several beads.

The rest of stage requires King Dedede to jump over Boom Blocks and occasionally smash Red Buttonbees that hover above them. Dedede must also break through walls of blocks that net him a large number of beads. At the end of the level, Dedede will encounter another large bell, followed by a final Boom Block that he must jump over. Finally, King Dedede will arrive at the goal bell and strike it to gain 100 beads.


Listed below are the blocks, enemies and other obstacles that appear in Stage 1 of Dedede Gogogo. Obstacles are listed in the order that they appear.


  • Cloth Block: A block that can be smashed with King Dedede's hammer.
  • Star Bead Block: A block that can be smashed with King Dedede's hammer to gain 5 beads.
  • Denim Block: Solid blocks that cannot be destroyed. King Dedede can jump over or slide under these blocks.
  • Boom Block: A block that explodes when collided with. King Dedede will lose speed and 50 Fuse Beads if he touches this block.


  • Yarn mole: Enemies that appear from the ground as King Dedede approaches. They can be jumped over or smashed with his hammer.
  • Red Buttonbee: Bee enemies that can be found hovering in midair. When hit with Dedede's hammer, Red Buttonbees will bounce off the ground and go flying, leaving a trail of Fuse Beads behind them.
  • Sneak Sack: Foes that run from King Dedede and create a trail of beads as they move. King Dedede moves slightly faster than Sneak Sack, allowing him to eventually catch it if he is quick enough.
