Gigabyte Grounds is the fourth level of Kirby: Planet Robobot. It has five regular stages, a boss stage, and an EX stage. The level takes place largely in a desert environment, but contains a factory, and a laboratory like the previous levels. There are eighteen Code Cubes to collect in this level, with three in every stage except the Boss one. The boss is Mecha Knight.

In Meta Knightmare Returns
All stages of Gigabyte Grounds are played in one sequence in Meta Knightmare Returns except for certain sections involving the Robobot Armor. Through this sequence, four stickers can be found.
In addition, many enemies are re-sized - changing their Health and also possibly movement speed - and the Mid-Bosses are changed to their 2.0 forms. The fight with Mecha Knight is also replaced with Stock Mecha Knight, an effective 2.0 variant.
Finally, in place of Code Cubes, side areas yield Meta-Points, which can be used to power Meta Knight's special abilities.
- The music track for Stages 3 and 5 is "Studying the Power Plant," a remix of the "Studying the Factory" theme from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. Stage EX features the Kirby: Canvas Curse remix of this tune as well.
Names in other languages
This is the official English rendering of the Japanese name in-game. "Gigant" likely derives from "gigabyte" like the English name, but also ties in with the series' previous usage of the term derived from "gigantic", like Gigant Edge and Gigant Chicks.
