Fortress of Shadows - Jambastion is the third level in Kirby Star Allies. It is a huge floating fortress which serves as an outpost of Jambandra, and is overseen by the three mage generals - Francisca, Flamberge and Zan Partizanne. In pursuit of the pieces of the Jamba Heart, Jambastion embeds itself into Planet Popstar. From there, Kirby and his allies infiltrate the fortress in an attempt to drive them off. Once Kirby defeats the mage generals here, they attempt to stop Kirby by destroying the fortress with him inside it, though Kirby manages to escape.


Jambastion is accessible once Meta Knight is defeated in World of Miracles - Planet Popstar. Jambastion consists of nine stages, as well as a Dream Palace. There are four bosses to face throughout the stages, with Zan Partizanne being the last. Defeating her and then escaping unlocks the next level, Far-Flung Starlight Heroes.

  • While Kirby and his allies infiltrate only one Jambastion, several more can be seen orbiting the great space station Jambandra. Despite the station's massive size, it has comparatively less areas for Kirby to traverse than the Jambastion which lands on Popstar.
  • From Version 4.0.0 onward, after clearing Story Mode, Shadow Kirby on a Warp Star may fly over the Jambastion level map on occasion.
