The Claykken's Lair is the fourth stage of the level Indigo Ocean in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. In this stage, Kirby has to battle the boss of Indigo Ocean - The Claykken - in a deep underwater coral reef.
Completing the stage unlocks Blue Sky Palace and awards The Claykken's Figurine.
The level begins inside a cave that leads underwater. As Kirby descends, he will need to slip past a few lines of Sawgill before reaching the door at the bottom.

The main boss area is a big rectangular room with coral along the edges. The Claykken himself appears in the background from a hole in the sea floor, and gives out a little chuckle as he begins his attack. In the first phase of the fight, The Claykken sticks his main two tentacle arms through holes to reach Kirby in the foreground, with the flippers covered in spikes. Kirby will need to hit the arms to deal damage to them, and cause Point Stars to rain out. When it becomes apparent that this tentacle strategy is not working, The Claykken begins the second phase of the fight by fully entering the field. He attacks by launching himself like a torpedo at Kirby, while also leaving clouds of ink behind him. After each second firing, however, The Claykken gets stuck in the wall, and Kirby can attack his exposed underbelly to damage him. Done enough times, The Claykken will be defeated, spiraling back into the hole from whence he came and laying there upside-down, leaving Kirby and Elline to do their victory dance.
