Raisin Ruins - Stage 4 (simply called Stage 4 or 2-4 in-game) is the fourth stage of Raisin Ruins in Kirby's Return to Dream Land and its remake—Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe. There are five Energy Spheres in this stage.


Kirby tries to work his way past the sand conveyor belts inside the ruins while dodging its inhabitants.

The stage starts out in a wide desert plain, at the foot of another large ruin, with a key just to the right, and a Hunter Scarfy guarding it. Kirby must quickly move up a staircase with horizontally moving stairs, avoiding the Scarfies, in order to unlock a gate at the top of the staircase. Once Kirby unlocks the gate, he can enter the ruins after slipping past a Poppy Bros. Jr..

Inside, Kirby will find himself fighting a series of sand treadmills which carry enemies of all sorts. This sand conveyor belt can get quite fast in places, and eventually dump into bottomless pits. The door to the next area can be found to the right.

The next door leads to a dark passageway. Kirby can use a candle to light his way forward. There are a number of dead ends and foes along the path, but with the candle, Kirby should be able to see these threats coming.

After emerging from the darkness, Kirby will need to move past fire blocks, then encounter Water Galboros. Defeating it grants access to the Water Ability, which can be used to douse the blocks.

From there, Kirby will need to move past many lines of firing Gigatzos. Here, an Invisibility Stone can be used to provide cover against the obstacles up ahead.

Once on the ruin exterior, Kirby can find and utilize the Ultra Sword ability to cut through giant ropes holding up large stone platforms. Behind the final one lies a rift to Another Dimension.

Another Dimension rift[edit]

The rift wall approaches from the right, prompting Kirby to run to the left. Along the way, several Shotzos will need to be dislodged to allow for safe passage. At the end of this path, Kirby will then need to fight a Fire Sphere Doomer to complete this section.

After the Sphere Doomer is defeated, Kirby may go back on the main path, and go on a ladder downward to the stage exit.

Energy Sphere Guide[edit]

  • A barrier in the floor in the sand conveyor belt section can be broken to access a side chamber. In this chamber, Kirby will need to hit a switch from afar and get through the gate quickly to get the first sphere.
  • In the dark passage, the second sphere can be found in an alcove in the ceiling.
  • Using the Invisibility Stone, Kirby can access a side door where the third sphere can be collected.
  • The last two spheres can be obtained from the Sphere Doomer at the end of the rift.
