Gloomy Woods[1] is a location exclusive to the novels that appears in Kirby and the Big Panic in Gloomy Woods!. It is a forest located in Dream Land. As its name implies, is gloomy and dark, regardless of the time of day, and is home to many frightening beasts, such as Grizzo or Fire Lion. These factors make the woods very dangerous and easy to get lost in. However, it is famous as the only place across the entire universe where the Stardust Fruits, the rumored world's tastiest fruits, grow, which made it the target of many adventurers, though none have ever been seen again. The Stardust Fruits ripe here thanks to the Stardust Crystal. It was once guarded by "the master" and his two servants, Ringle and Broom Hatter, but some time before the events of the book, "the master" disappeared, leaving Ringle and Broom Hatter as Gloomy Woods' only inhabitants.

As the plot focuses on Kerota, Keroji, and Kerolina's attempt to retrieve the Stardust Fruits, the majority of the book is spend by them and the protagonists in Gloomy Woods.
