Kirby + Kirby
Kirby + Kirby is the second stage of the level Purple Fortress in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. In this stage, Kirby is split into two identical copies of himself which operate independently but share a health bar. Both will need to be guided simultaneously throughout the course of the stage before they re-merge into one at the end.
Completing the stage unlocks Wonder Space.
The stage begins in a small interior space, where Kirby can access a hidden Point Star cache before moving forward to the next area through a pipe.
The pipe leads Kirby to a split junction, where a machine splits Kirby into two copies of himself and sends both into separate rooms. Once the player is comfortable with controlling both Kirbys at once, they can head through the separate doorways to move on to the next area.
The following zone is a long split hallway which auto-scrolls to the right, so the two Kirbys will need to be monitored continuously, since if one gets crushed or otherwise K.O.'d, the other will perish as well. As the path moves forward, two treasure chests can be obtained, while the Kirbys defeat enemies and bust open barriers in the hall. Eventually, two doors are reached at the right end of the path.
In the next area, The Kirbys are taken on a long elevator ride upward. At first, they are still separated by a wall, but eventually the wall ends and the two Kirbys can interact directly with each-other for the first time. Using a Touch Dash to bounce into the other Kirby will cause them to bound rapidly across the room, ricocheting on their collective energy to rapidly defeat enemies and bust blocks open. Another treasure chest can be collected while riding this elevator upward, and eventually, the next door can be reached at the top.
The following room tasks the two Kirbys with defeating three Cannon Cottas in a Gray Zone on the ceiling. The Kirbys will need to exchange momentum to bound up there and defeat the foes. This done, they can take some pipes to move on to the next area.
In the last room, the two Kirbys are recombined into one, then spat out in an otherworldly region. A hidden challenge room door can be found here, but the roulette wheel to end the stage is over to the right.

- This stage and Deploy the Kirby Tank! are the only two regular stages in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse which have four treasure chests instead of five.
