Ripple Star - Stage 2 is the second stage of Ripple Star in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. This stage takes place in the sewer system beneath the city above, allowing Kirby and his friends to enter the palace through a back route.


The stage begins out in an open area, with ominous clouds filling the sky. Kirby cannot gain access to the Ripple Star palace from out here, so he will need to enter via the sewer. The way forward is down the well.

Down the well, a Flopper guards the waters at the bottom. The way forward is through a small hole to the right.

The next area is an underwater tunnel section, with much of the view obscured to the player. This eventually leads out of the water and into a cave. While walking down the cave, a cave-in happens, prompting King Dedede to come in and clear the obstruction for Kirby to move forward.

The next area is a continuation of the tunnel, which splits off into several segments bridged by holes in the floor and ceiling. At the bottom, another pool of water can be accessed, with some goodies floating in there. The way forward is to the right past this pool.

In the following room, Adeleine paints Kirby an Invincible Candy, which he can use to ram through a blockade of Star Blocks up ahead. Some items are contained in side-chambers behind columns with different color patterns on them. A Ghost Knight guards the door forward.

In the last room, Kirby can access an elevator to take him up to the stage exit.
