Flame Planet Hotbeat is one of the planets which Kirby can visit in Milky Way Wishes, in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra. It is dominated by magma-filled tunnels, and has Chameleo Arm serving as its Boss. Hotbeat is home to two Copy Essences Deluxe. These are Fire and Suplex.
The stage begins as Kirby flies in to a magmatic tunnel. From here, he will need to carefully traverse the area as it snakes along, moving gradually upward and to the right. Several enemies stand on solid ground in places, and will (or will not) try to get in the way. Up near the end of the path, Kirby can find an Invincible Candy to help him withstand the lava floes for a moment.
The following area features a long path leading to the right, dotted by Carts which Kirby can use to safely roll over the lava and pound down Stakes in the way. Lots of recovery items can be found along the way, though Kirby should be careful not to accidentally seal some away by pounding the wrong stakes.
The following area features another snaking tunnel, this one being much more molten than the first. After moving past some patrolling Gordos, Kirby can make use of rotating cannons to move forward. A few wayward Maxim Tomatoes and 1-Ups can be collected here as well in tight spaces. From the last cannon, Kirby can reach the door to the boss.

|In the first area, Kirby must uncover a lavafall in an overhanging cave and then fly in to find a door on the other side. To avoid taking damage from the lava, he will need an Invincible Candy.|
|In the second area with the Carts, a doorway can be found by busting through a ceiling made of fragile blocks up ahead. In the proceeding room, Kirby will need to defeat Bugzzy before the essence will appear.|
Enemies, mid-boss, and boss
Boss: Chameleo Arm
- Main article: Chameleo Arm
At the end of the stage, Chameleo Arm appears in an arena that is largely the same as the one it appears in from The Great Cave Offensive. Like before, its color is randomized, but its attack pattern, strategy, and stats are the same as before. It attacks primarily by attempting to grab Kirby with its tongue or claws, and spitting out paint globs that can be inhaled and spat back. Defeating Chameleo Arm completes this stage.
