Royal Road - Stage 8 EX is an optional stage in Royal Road, unlocked once Royal Road - Stage 7 EX is completed. There is one Sun Stone and 6 Keychains in this stage. The Rare Keychain is one depicting Taranza.


The stage begins with Kirby entering a portal from the prison complex. From there, he finds his way to a volcano where a Miracle Fruit appears. After gaining Hypernova, Kirby faces down against the following encounters:

In the last area, Kirby can unravel a tapestry which depicts his sprite history, starting with Kirby's Dream Land and ending with Kirby: Triple Deluxe in Hypernova form. At the end of the tapestry is a little vignette of sprite Kirby and King Dedede battling at the top of the tower in Bubbly Clouds. The stage exit can be reached from here, but there's a familiar secret waiting within the vignette.

Sun Stone & Gold Keychain Guide[edit]

  • Sun Stone - Can be found right next to the stage exit, opposite the moon on the tapestry.
  • Gold Keychain - Kirby must enter the moon on the tapestry. After falling down, the keychain can be found at the bottom along with various other goodies.
