From WiKirby, your independent source of Kirby knowledge.
Outer Rings is the last stage (second extra stage) of Space Land in Kirby's (Extra) Epic Yarn, unlocked by clearing Moon Base and obtaining the Shooting Star Patch. The stage is an extended Rocket Metamortex section ending in a fight with Space Kracko.
Tossing the patch causes a shooting star to appear in the vicinity of a planet with an alien on top using a hula-hoop. The star flies at the alien, knocking it off-kilter and causing its hoop to fall and enlarge, becoming rings for the planet as the alien falls off of it. After this, the door opens.
The stage begins with Kirby transforming into a Rocket using the Metamortex. From here, it's a long flight upward as Kirby will need to shoot down many asteroids and enemies which vie to get in the way. It starts with a wave of asteroids, then leads into an Orbitfly armada, then the UFOs come out in groups, and then tops off with all three of these things thrown in at once along with some Spore Jellies. Once these waves are cleared, Kirby will then need to contend with a particularly angry Space Kracko at the top. Space Kracko attacks by swooping, shooting asteroids and firing its rotary beam. It takes a great deal of sustained fire to defeat, becoming gradually smaller until it is destroyed. From here, the Reel Gate can be accessed up top to end the stage.
