Royal Road is the sixth level of Kirby: Triple Deluxe and the last of the six lands in the kingdom of Floralia. It has five regular stages, a boss stage, and two EX stages. The level is effectively one big castle complex, with an additional floating prison complex above it. There are sixteen Sun Stones to collect in this level, with one each in Stages 2, 4 and EX 2, three each in Stages 1, 3 and EX, and four in Stage 5. All the previous bosses are fought here again throughout the stages, and the primary bosses vary depending on which game-mode is being played. In Story Mode, the bosses are Masked Dedede and Queen Sectonia. In Dededetour!, they are Queen Sectonia DX, Shadow Dedede and Dark Meta Knight's Revenge.

In DededeTour!

Once Lvl. 6 begins, King Dedede plays through all of the EX stages from previous levels and Stage 7 EX first. From there, all remaining stages of Royal Road are played in one sequence in DededeTour! except for Stage 8 EX and the sections of stages where Hypernova is used. Through this sequence, 6 Keychains can be found.

In addition, many enemies are re-sized - changing their Stamina and also possibly movement speed - and Queen Sectonia and the Mid-Bosses are changed to their DX forms.

Finally, in place of Sun Stones, portals can be found in many areas allowing King Dedede to skip parts of the stages. In Royal Road, there are 13 of these portals in total.

Once Queen Sectonia DX is defeated, King Dedede is pitted against two more foes, not seen in the main Story Mode. These are Shadow Dedede and Dark Meta Knight's Revenge.


  • Throughout Royal Road, numerous enemies encountered in previous levels now sport an insectoid design. These include Waddle Dees, Bronto Burts, Gordos, Lanzers, and Spynums.
    • However, Stage EX features both Sectonian and normal variants of enemies that would otherwise be Sectonian only.
  • Stage 3 and Stage EX 2 are the only stages in the game from which it is impossible to obtain any Copy Abilities.
    • Additionally, Stage EX 2 is the only EX stage to feature Hypernova.
  • Stage EX 2 features the Fountain of Dreams theme from Kirby Air Ride when Kirby gains Hypernova, which itself is a remix of the Gourmet Race theme from Kirby Super Star.
