Nova is one of the places which Kirby can visit in Milky Way Wishes, in Kirby Super Star (Ultra). Unlike the main planets, Kirby can not enter this stage until he clears all prior ones. Kirby can find the entrance to this stage near Popstar as the Galactic Nova pushes against the Sun and Moon after clearing every planet for the first time, and can visit Nova in the upper-right corner of the map after completing the game. The boss of this stage is the Galactic Nova Nucleus. After the boss is defeated, Kirby automatically moves into the final boss fight against Marx on a different planet.
The stage begins in an open area of the Nova's interior, as mechanical enemies fly toward him. Using the Starship, Kirby can quickly destroy these before they cause any trouble. Further in, Kirby will need to dodge and weave across metal formations that form an ever-tighter tunnel. Touching the walls at any point will deal Kirby damage, so he should be careful. Further in, the stage starts to scroll faster, and the passage becomes more cramped, with more and more robotic drones appearing in Kirby's way. After a while, Kirby automatically zooms forward, heading directly to the boss encounter.

After flying through the opening area, Kirby finds himself in the central chamber. Here, his task is to shoot the shapes suspended in-between pillars that move automatically toward and away from him. Kirby must clear the shapes from all eight pillars to defeat the boss, and move on to the final encounter with Marx.
