Dig and Dash is the first stage of the level Yellow Dunes in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. In this stage, Kirby ventures through underground ruins. Keys, metal balls, and soft clay are introduced in this level. The enemies Drill Cotta, Grindarr, and Mega Grindarr first appear in this level.

Completing the level unlocks Deploy the Kirby Tank!.


The level begins in the desert. Kirby digs through soft clay within the area until he reaches a cannon that fires him underground.

In the area following, Kirby encounters numerous Drill Cotta. After he obtains a key, Kirby uses it to unlock the gate and continue downward to the next area.

Next, Kirby comes across a couple Grindarrs in this area, as well as a time-challenge door.

In the area after, several short puzzles are completed by Kirby to unblock a Mega Grindarr's path downwards, which also allows Kirby to continue to the next area.

Here, a door leading to a puzzle room is located, with no other obstacles.

After Kirby enters into the next area, multiple larger sized Drill Cotta attack him from above. Once Kirby reaches the bottom, he uses a cannon to make his escape to the surface.

Once the surface is reached, Kirby completes the level by using the roulette wheel.
