Raisin Ruins - Stage 3 (simply called Stage 3 or 2-3 in-game) is the third stage of Raisin Ruins in Kirby's Return to Dream Land and its remake—Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe. There are four Energy Spheres in this stage.


Kirby makes use of Tornado to more safely traverse the steps of this big desert ziggurat.

The stage begins at the base of a steep series of ruin steps, augmented by ladders and foes. Kirby will need to climb his way up these ramparts. Along the way, a number of small passages can be found to obtain extra goodies.

Through the door lies a vertical passage which splits into many paths. No essential items can be missed here, but some of the paths are undoubtedly more favorable than the others. Kirby should try to look for Point Stars as he ascends to get the best items. The door to the next area is up at the top.

The next area has Kirby traversing up more ruin steps. Though not quite as steep, these steps are guarded by Shotzos and Gigatzos, making safe passage tricky. A Twister can be swallowed to obtain the elusive Tornado ability, which can be used to glide past the shots without taking a hit. The door to the next area can be found in the upper-right inside the ruins.

From here, another vertical column can be found, where Kirby can swallow a Starman to use the Hi-Jump ability to ascend past many barricades of blocks and enemies within them. The door forward is once again up at the top.

Kirby finds himself in a ruin passageway where he can find a Maxim Tomato box and carry it into a fight with the Mid-Boss King Doo. Defeating this giant cyclops yields the Beam ability, and the way forward via means of cannons. In Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe, a Don Puffle is present here, which will allow Kirby to use Festival Dance on the Mid-Boss.

In the last area, Kirby will need to make continuous use of cannons to propel himself upward. At the top, the stage exit can be found to the right.

Energy Sphere Guide[edit]

  • In the third area, past the firing Shotzos and Gigatzos, a Super Inhale Block can be removed to access a small chamber where a Tornado Copy Essence can be found. This can be used to break the barriers ahead to obtain the first sphere.
  • In the Hi-Jump area, the second sphere can be found by jumping through the barrier in the middle of the path.
  • After defeating King Doo, Kirby can use the Beam ability to open up a Bomb Block barrier along the path upward to obtain the third sphere.
  • In the Cannon grid, the last sphere can be found by taking the cannon to the right at the top.
