Nutty Noon - Stage 6 (simply called Stage 6 or 5-6 in-game) is the boss stage of Nutty Noon in Kirby's Return to Dream Land and its remake—Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe. It is the final stage of Nutty Noon and the fifth boss stage of the game, where Grand Doomer is fought. Completing this stage awards Kirby and co. the Lor Starcutter's Mast and grants access to Egg Engines, on the faraway planet Halcandra.

Kirby starts out at the bottom of a large, blue tower in a starry night setting, like the ones found in Nutty Noon - Stage 4. Kirby must ascend the tower by climbing up many ladders leading to the top. On his way up, the path becomes more narrow, until he finds an open area where he can pick up the Whip, Cutter, Wing and Fighter abilities from Copy Essences if desired (in Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe, the Sand and Mecha copy essences are also present). After equipping himself, Kirby can use a Warp Star to blast off to another tower. There he must walk through a hallway, but something isn't right: the "Goal Game" music that usually plays after defeating a boss plays throughout the hallway instead of "Battle on the Horizon". At the end of the hallway, the Mast is finally in sight. As Kirby reaches for it, the Grand Doomer appears, gobbles up the Lor's mast, and engages Kirby and his friends in combat. When its health is close to fully depleting, it encases itself in a solid mass and Kirby must get rid of it using the Ultra Sword.

In Extra Mode, Kirby must contend with the gloomy red Grand Doomer EX instead. Its attacks are much faster and it shoots more orbs at Kirby. In its shield phase, it will also use Deadly Sun.

  • This stage's opening layout appears to reference both Dark Castle - Stage 8 (climbing up a tall tower with Shotzos lining the outside walls) and Dyna Blade's Nest (reaching a peak with 4 Copy Essences and a Warp Star that takes Kirby to the boss, though the former only applies in the original Kirby's Return to Dream Land).
