Neo Star - Stage 3 is the third stage of Neo Star in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. This stage features high-altitude rocky formations which Kirby must balance across.


The stage begins out in a high rocky plateau. Kirby will traverse a narrow stone walkway that is patrolled by various foes.

The next area has Kirby traversing the plateaus, and jumping over gaps along the way.

In a following small area, Adeleine can be seen in front of something she painted. What this thing might be differs at random, but includes objects like a pizza, a parasol, or a top hat.

Kirby then finds a 7x7 grid of Star Blocks with a hole in the middle. No other obstacles are found here.

The last area is another walkway along the plateau tops. The path gets pretty bumpy, and Kirby will have to traverse platforms that will crumble under his feet. At the end, just before the stage exit, some of the plateaus spell out a familiar pink hero's name.

Crystal Shard guide[edit]

The first Crystal Shard can be found underneath the walkway in the first area. Kirby will need to use a Needle-based ability to open the way.

Shard 2
The second shard appears in the middle of a large array of Star Blocks. To make this happen, Kirby has to shape the array into the correct shape, by removing blocks where appropriate. The clue as to the proper shape will be given by Adeleine in the previous area (the correct shape and clue are different each time the stage is played).
