Missions are a set of objectives that Kirby can meet in all regular and boss stages in the main game of Kirby and the Forgotten Land, which allow him to free more trapped Waddle Dees, whether they are physically seen in the stages or not. Each main game stage (excluding Point of Arrival and Lab Discovera) has five mission objectives, with the first one always involving freeing the three Waddle Dees in the gold cage at the end of the stage. Completing every mission is necessary to free all 300 trapped Waddle Dees, and thus, earn 100% completion. Missions do not need to be completed all in one go: in fact, whenever a stage is completed with unmet objectives, one of the hidden ones will be revealed. However, it is possible (albeit sometimes difficult) to complete all objectives in a single stage playthrough.

List of missions[edit]

The following is a list of every mission in Kirby and the Forgotten Land, along with information on how to meet the objectives where applicable. For the sake of brevity, the first objective of each stage - "Clear the stage" - is omitted from this list:
