Neo Star is the naturalistic fourth world encountered by Kirby and his sidekick, Ribbon, on their mission to vanquish Dark Matter from their realm in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. Like the Rock Star realm, the Neo Star continues the Crystal Shards tradition of stage variety, paying an emphasized homage to realistic landscapes seen on Earth, through the incorporation of volcanic climates, forest areas, subterranean caves, and mountainous passages common to the topography of our home planet.

Like in all worlds of The Crystal Shards, the first four stages within the Neo Star hide three Crystal Shards, while the final stage rewards only one after the defeat of the boss. Nevertheless, all shards within one level need not to be collected before Kirby is granted access to the next; Kirby must simply complete the level.


Each stage is unlocked in succession after clearing the previous one. Defeating Magman is necessary to move on to Shiver Star. For more information about a particular stage, click on the link to the stage's page in the table. For a full guide on how to obtain the Crystal Shards, see the Crystal Shard page.

Boss: Magman

Kirby does battle with Magman to claim the last shard of the planet.

This fight happens in two phases. The first phase has Magman in the background presiding over a huge lake of magma. To attack it, Kirby will have to hit its tendrils when they appear, and can do so by swallowing a Magoo and spitting it at them.

Once Magman has had enough of this, he will appear in the same plane as Kirby, and chase him down until they reach a more solid battlefield. At this point, Kirby has to spit the Burnis that appear from infernos that Magman creates back at the creature himself. If Kirby is successful, Magman will slump and melt away, leaving the last crystal shard of Neo Star to be collected.

Ending Cut-scene

As Kirby and pals look over the crystal, the surrounding volcanoes all begin to erupt. The team makes a run for it as the crystal portal to Shiver Star opens. They all jump into the portal one-by-one, but Waddle Dee cannot keep up. Kirby emerges from the portal, and Inhales Waddle Dee to get him inside before it closes.
