The opening cut-scene for Vegetable Valley identifies it as a level.

Broadly speaking, the term level in video games refers to a playable area or set of areas which share a distinct theme throughout. Typically, whenever the word level is used, it implies that there are multiple distinct areas which are visited either in sequence, or can be traversed between over the course of gameplay.

Though this is not true universally, in the Kirby series, a level is typically the largest form of sub-division that a main game's contents will take. Levels may also go by different names, such as world, area, zone, or even land. Usually, levels are also further sub-divided into stages, which tend to follow the theme of their host level, though some games (like Kirby's Dream Land) consist only of individual stages.

Levels may also contain level hubs, which are explorable areas which can be used to access individual stages. Levels themselves are also sometimes reachable from World Maps, which are usually no more complicated than an interactive map screen.

List of all levels[edit]

The following is a full list of every level in the Kirby series, at least in terms of what may actually be called a level in the traditional sense. Included are details regarding the source game, the order of the levels in said game, how many stages (including boss and extra stages, but excluding peripheral areas such as Sub-Games and Museums) the levels have, and any other pertinent notes. Levels within Sub-Games will not be included here:
