This article or section is about the first level of Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. For information about the planet in a more general context, see Popstar.

Pop Star is the first level in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, and the home world of Kirby. It is distinguished by its verdant forests and grasslands, and its ancient castles. Ribbon finds herself here after Dark Matter shatters the Great Crystal, and happens to bump into Kirby, who agrees to help her get the shards back.

Pop Star consists of four stages (including the Boss stage). Unlike the other levels, each normal stage has Kirby fighting a boss, each one being a friend who has been possessed by Dark Matter. Once these are defeated, they will be freed from Dark Matter's influence and will join Kirby on his quest.


Each stage is unlocked in succession after clearing the previous one. Defeating Whispy Woods is necessary to move on to Rock Star. For more information about a particular stage, click on the link to the stage's page in the table. For a full guide on how to obtain the Crystal Shards, see the Crystal Shard page.

Boss: Whispy Woods

Kirby battles with Whispy and his children.

Kirby gets plopped down into a circular arena in the woods, with Whispy in the center and his three children, Whispy Woods Jr. on the path. In this first part of the fight, Whispy will shoot out Apples at Kirby. Kirby can then use these as ammunition against the Jr.s, who will be hopping around the place and occasionally spitting out Air Bullets.

Once all three Jr.s go down, Whispy gets angry, and starts a new wave of attacks. He will shoot an Air Pellet, then shake his canopy, throwing down a bunch of Apples onto the stage. After this, he will shoot out his roots to try and hit Kirby. Kirby can deal him damage by hitting the roots with the apples or with another attack.

Once Whispy is defeated, he will adopt a sick expression and stop fighting. Kirby can then grab the last Crystal Shard in the level and move on.

Ending Cut-scene

Kirby and co. find themselves out in the grassy field with the growing crystal floating in front of them. It shakes, then transforms into a portal, revealing the next world - Rock Star - where more of the shards were scattered. Ribbon flies immediately into the portal, prompting the rest to follow. Once all of them are in, the portal closes, and the Crystal flies off into space toward the planet in question.
