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. The stage can be lit up either by tapping it with the Magical Paintbrush or by having Kirby collide with a lantern by dashing into it, though the lantern will go out after a short while.

Lanterns appear in the Rift Ruin, Dreamy Darkness, and Collapse Castle stages.


  • When activated, the lantern plays a sound effect based on the one used when Fire Kirby lobs a fireball in Kirby Air Ride.
