A Lantern is a stage device that is present in a select few stages in Kirby: Canvas Curse. The presence of a lantern indicates that the stage has the potential to go dark, hindering the player's ability to see platforms and other elements. Kirby can light up the stage by colliding with a lantern when he finds one, though it will go out after a short while. To activate it, the player must tap it using the Nintendo DS stylus or have Kirby touch it.
- When activated, the lantern plays a sound effect based on the one used when Fire Kirby lobs a fireball in Kirby Air Ride.
