Hooplagoon, Relic of the Ruins is the last stage of Yellow Dunes. This stage pits Kirby against the mechanical relic boss Hooplagoon within an ancient ruin. Completing this stage awards the Hooplagoon Figurine and unlocks the next level: Indigo Ocean.


There are two principal areas in this stage. In the first, Kirby makes his way into a ruin similar to the one seen in The Long-Lost Ruins. He'll have to dig through some soft clay on the way down and move a Grindarr out of the way before proceeding through the door.

Main article: Hooplagoon

The next room is wide and octagonal in shape. Before long, Hooplagoon emerges from the wall and begins his attack. Hooplagoon attacks by firing lasers from prongs between his plates while drifting around the room. To defeat him, Kirby must shatter each of his external plates. Each time a plate is broken, Hooplagoon grows in size and moves faster, while dropping Point Stars. Three of the plates can be destroyed using simple Touch Dashes, but the final plate is made of metal, requiring a Star Dash to break. Once Hooplagoon is defeated, Kirby and Elline have a victory dance, then move on to Indigo Ocean.


The following enemies appear in this stage:
