Ripple Star - Stage 1 is the first stage of Ripple Star in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. This stage is a walk through a developed city street with lots of flower beds.


The stage begins out on a floral walkway, very similar in look to the first stage of Pop Star. Kirby will have to deal with a number of enemies as he makes his way to the shack at the other side.

Inside the building, Kirby has to fight the Mid-Boss Sawyer. Defeating it opens the path forward and yields a crystal shard.

Back out on the main path, Kirby will have to contend with more enemies, then cross a stream to reach the stage exit.
