Rock Star - Stage 1 is the first stage of Rock Star in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. The stage consists mainly of rolling sand dunes and rocky wastelands, but is peppered with ruins and very sparse greenery.


The stage begins out in an arid desert region, with dunes of orange sand. The path continues to the right past small outcroppings of rock between the sand, patrolled by enemies. The path eventually leads into a sandstone ruin to the right.

Inside the first room, Kirby will have to contend with some barricades, patrolled by Bronto Burts and I³s. The way out is to the right, up a hole in the ceiling.

In the next room, Kirby has to battle up a hill of sand to fight the Mid-Boss Kacti. Defeating it opens the door to the right, and reveals a Crystal Shard.

In the next room, Kirby will have to make his way up an auto-scrolling vertical chamber as sand fills the room. If Kirby is caught between the sand and a floor, he will be crushed. At the top, it will seem there is no way out, but then Waddle Dee busts a hole through the ceiling to help his pink buddy.

Back outside, the path leads off to the right into the desert. Along the way, some greenery can be found, along with many more things that do not like the color pink. Past a bunch of Gobblins, the end of the stage can be reached.
