Egg Engines - Stage 5 (simply called Stage 5 or 6-5 in-game) is the fifth stage of Egg Engines in Kirby's Return to Dream Land and its remake—Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe. There are five Energy Spheres in this stage.


This area features many rooms where ceilings come down and threaten to crush Kirby, requiring him to find pockets to hide in.

The stage begins in the factory interior, where Halcandle Dees can be seen running on some small conveyor belts. Further down the hall, a Waddle Doo can be swallowed for the Beam ability. Past that is a room where a large piston slowly presses the floor. More enemies and pistons are encountered as the hall continues to the right. At the end, a ceiling switch can be used to cause a piston to fall and crush a mass of hapless Halcandles guarding the doorway. Afterward, Kirby can nab a 1-Up that appears in the piston.

Kirby next finds himself in a crushing chamber, and will have to dodge many falling platforms from the ceiling, lest he become a pink pancake. The door appears after enough crushers are dodged.

The next area has Kirby traversing several elevated platforms with conveyors on them over a long bottomless pit. As the path progresses, the pit gives way to a super-fast conveyor belt which occasionally yields enemies zipping past along it.

Kirby next finds himself in another crushing room. He will need to avoid five more falling ceilings in more elaborate patterns before the door appears.

In the following area, Kirby will need to pass through several passages with lines of Gordos and other enemies in the way. An Invisibility Stone can be found along the path, nullifying most of the hazards. Kirby can find the door at the bottom of this area.

Kirby finds himself in one more crushing room. This time, he will need to pass through a gap in the first falling ceiling, then avoid a second, then jump back down as both rise again to avoid getting crushed in the ceiling. The last series of crushers come down one-by-one forcing Kirby to the left. The stage exit then appears to the right as the last ones come down.

HAL Room[edit]

Much like in Cookie Country - Stage 4, there is a secret HAL Room in this stage. From the third room (with the conveyor belts) at the far end of the area, a conveyor brings down several Halcandle Dees from a chamber in the ceiling above the normal door. If Kirby goes to this chamber, there is a hidden doorway to the far right. The door leads to an exterior part of the factory, though still walled in. Kirby will need to make use of a few cannons and attempt to grab items that fall from barriers in the ceiling that break. At the far right, a Star Block formation in the shape of the word 'HAL' can be found, along with a Waddle Dee and Copy Essences for the Whip, Water, Leaf and Spear abilities. In Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe, two Don Puffles are also present. Breaking the star blocks yields several tasty collectibles. A door to the right of this formation will take Kirby to the next intended room.

In Kirby's Return to Dream Land, the original Green Greens music plays in this room. However in Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe, this is instead replaced with the title screen and menu music from Scope Shot, which was removed from the remake.

Energy Sphere guide[edit]

  • In the first crushing room, the first sphere can be found to the left riding alongside one of the openings to the last crushing platform.
  • In the conveyor area, a round-trip door can be found guarded by an Armor Waddle Dee leading to a room where Kirby must convey a Key through some Gordos to unlock a gate and get the second sphere.
  • In the second crushing room, the third sphere can be found high up in the nook of one of the falling platforms.
  • In the Invisibility Stone area, Kirby will need to pass through a crystal gate near the bottom and obtain the fourth sphere from behind some Degouts on guard.
  • In the final crushing room, the last sphere appears in the air as the last ceilings come down. Kirby will need to grab it before it is made unobtainable.

  • In Kirby's Return to Dream Land, the track "Pressure Panic" plays in all three crushing rooms. However, in Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe, the track "Climactic Clash! Robo Dedede" - a remix of the Heavy Lobster theme from Kirby Super Star Ultra - plays during the third crushing room instead. This particular remix of the theme was taken from Scope Shot, which does not appear in Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe.
