The Mirror World, also called Mirror Country or Mirror Land, is a world that lies parallel to Kirby's home of Dream Land. It is a peaceful world similar to Dream Land. The two worlds are connected through a magical mirror located in the skies of the respective worlds. The Mirror World debuted in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror.
Though similar to Dream Land in many respects, the Mirror World has little in common geographically with the more familiar world. It has very few open plains, being instead covered primarily with forest. It has very little in the way of cloudy terrain, unlike Dream Land, and its mansion has no analogue to Dream Land. However, it shares many creatures with Dream Land, even having its own counterparts to Kirby, Meta Knight, and King Dedede (known as Shadow Kirby, Dark Meta Knight, and Shadow Dedede, respectively). The areas are linked together with the Central Circle.
The Mirror World is the setting for the game Kirby & The Amazing Mirror. It contains all the areas Kirby needs to visit in order to complete the game. During the game, an evil being called Dark Mind attacked the peaceful world and spread chaos. Kirby enters the realm in search of Meta Knight and ends up saving the world by collecting the eight Mirror Shards and defeating Dark Mind.
The Mirror World briefly appears as the setting for the final boss battle in Dededetour! in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. After defeating Shadow Dedede, King Dedede enters the Dimension Mirror, and fights Dark Meta Knight within the Mirror World. After winning the battle, King Dedede traps Dark Meta Knight in the Dimension Mirror and destroys it. Dark Meta Knight's battle in The True Arena is also set in the same area in the Mirror World.
Locations of the Mirror World include these areas:
- Rainbow Route
- Moonlight Mansion
- Cabbage Cavern
- Mustard Mountain
- Carrot Castle
- Olive Ocean
- Peppermint Palace
- Radish Ruins
- Candy Constellation
