Moonlight Mansion is the second area visited in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror. Moonlight Mansion is first entered after completing Rainbow Route. This area is one of the nine areas of the Mirror World and with Rainbow Route, one of the only two not named for something edible. It is also one of the three areas consisting of a single building. Hidden deeply in the dark mansion, King Golem guards a Mirror Shard.
Moonlight Mansion is a medium-sized area and has only a few connections to other locales. Rainbow Route, Olive Ocean, and Candy Constellation are the only connections. The majority of exploration takes place in the mansion's vast interior. Various enemies (see table below) can be found throughout the many seemingly offices, studies, laboratory areas, and hallways between them. Some of the hazards Kirby will encounter include pits, spikes, electrical charges, and Gordos. As one of the simplest areas of Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, only a few puzzles challenge Kirby in order to progress further. The majority of the switches, bomb blocks, and metal blocks are used to access bonus areas and treasure chests.
Besides the expected food, batteries, Maxim Tomatoes, 1-Ups and rare Invincible Candy, Kirby can find Orange Spray Paint, Chalk Spray Paint, and the Enemy Sounds.

Moonlight Mansion is a very segmented area, consisting of four primary regions. The area to the left of the Entry is outside the mansion and is visually similar to the rightward areas in Rainbow Route. The middle-right area is inside the mansion proper in its main rooms. The lower areas are the basement, which can lead to the Boss, and the upper area is a high tower in the mansion which leads to Candy Constellation. Overall, there are 20 normal rooms, one hub, one entry, and one Warp room.
Moonlight Mansion is bordered to the west by Rainbow Route, has an access tunnel to Olive Ocean in the south (or down, in this case), which needs to be activated on both sides, and has a one-way Warp to Candy Constellation to the north (or up, in this case).
Moonlight Mansion has two Goal rooms. Completing these rooms takes Kirby and his clones to the Goal Game, then returns them to the Central Circle of Rainbow Route.

The stained glass windows.
- The stained glass windows in the background of the room where King Golem is fought, as well as the one directly before it, depict various bosses from the game. From top to bottom, left to right, they show Mega Titan, Gobbler, King Golem, Wiz and Kracko. Note that the Mega Titan window can only be seen for a short moment right after Kirby enters the boss room. This backdrop is also at least partially visible from a couple other rooms in the mansion.
