Rhythm Route - Stage 5 is the fifth stage of Rhythm Route. There are three Code Cubes and four stickers in this stage. The rare sticker is one depicting Masked Dedede.


This stage takes place on an urban passenger train, making it a sort of follow-up to the train stage from Patched Plains. Kirby starts on the outside of the train, and finds his way into the car on the back.

Once inside, Kirby will be subject to several 3D Warp Step pads. While in the background, the screen will auto-scroll, meaning Kirby could get crushed back there. Further down, Kirby will have to contend with Bonkers before proceeding. From there, Kirby can gain access to the Robobot Armor and use it to clear out more obstacles. From there, a Warp Star can be taken to exit the train.

Back in the city, Kirby will need to move past several pipes and a tall tower to reach the stage exit.

Code Cube & Rare Sticker Guide[edit]

  • Code Cube 1 - In the second area of the train, Kirby will need to circle around using the 3D Laser Bar and knock out all of the blocks in the process. Once back on the background path, Kirby can collect a Battery and use it to power a sawblade to get the cube.
  • Code Cube 2 - After defeating Bonkers, Kirby can use the Hammer ability to open up a side door. Inside is a small challenge involving pounding Stakes to get this cube.
  • Code Cube 3 - In the last area, Kirby can rotate a tall tower using the Robobot Armor to create an alternate path forward. After heading through to the background, this cube can be found inside a treasure chest near the stage exit.
  • Rare Sticker - After obtaining the Robobot Armor, Kirby can pound a forklift using the Stone Mode, then head through the background path to collect this sticker.

  • The Japanese name of the stage's theme reveals that the train has a name: ミライカナリ (Mirai Kanari), a word play on the phrase かなり未来 (kanari mirai), which means "so futuristic". It may also possibly be a reference to ニライカナイ (Nirai Kanai), a concept of paradise in the Ryukyuan religion.
