Neo Star - Stage 4 is the fourth stage of Neo Star in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. The stage takes place inside an active volcano, and moves past several pits and waves of advancing magma.


The stage begins in a volcanic region, outside the volcano itself. Kirby will have to dodge the falling Ignus while he makes his way across the path, over the lava, and into the volcano proper.

Inside the volcano, Kirby will keep moving forward past pools of magma and shifting ground. A bunch of Burning-yielding creatures will try to get in the way.

In the next cavernous area, King Dedede rushes in, and takes over for Kirby. Along the way, he will need to bust up a bunch of stone pillars that are blocking the path.

Kirby proceeds on his own from this point. This area is another large volcanic cave, and Kirby will have to walk a narrow path here, past a lot of enemies.

In a small room, a Chacha and two Bobos can be seen in the background, with a small lumpy mound in the middle of the path.

On the next path, Kirby will be chased down by a wave of magma. He has to make his way past more enemies and pools of standing magma to get away from it.

The last chamber leads upward. While Kirby climbs, he will have to mind the rising magma below. The stage exit can be found at the top.
