Overload Ocean is the third level of Kirby: Planet Robobot. It has five regular stages, a boss stage, and an EX stage. The level consists mainly of locations both above and below water, contains a dessert factory, and also features a laboratory like the stages before it. There are eighteen Code Cubes to collect in this level, with three in every stage except the Boss one. The boss is Susie.

In Meta Knightmare Returns
All stages of Overload Ocean are played in one sequence in Meta Knightmare Returns except for certain sections involving the Robobot Armor. Through this sequence, five stickers can be found.
In addition, many enemies are re-sized - changing their Health and also possibly movement speed - and Susie and the Mid-Bosses are changed to their 2.0 forms.
Finally, in place of Code Cubes, side areas yield Meta-Points, which can be used to power Meta Knight's special abilities.
