Woodland Battle is the first stage of the level Orange Woodland in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. In this stage, Kirby makes use of the Kirby Tank transformation again and blasts his way through a series of deep dark forests, contending with fragile walkways, rolling logs, and many foes, including the new Sportles, Sportletinis, and Explortles.
Completing the stage unlocks Gondola Ride.
The stage begins in a deep wooded area, as Kirby needs to pass over a gap with four Cannon Cottas in it. From there, he can find a canvas, which Elline will use to transform him into the Kirby Tank before proceeding through the door further right.
The following area is an auto-scrolling section which moves back and forth. Kirby will need to fend off numerous threats in this area, including rolling logs, Bronto Burts, and the brand-new enemy Sportle, among others. Unlike in the first Kirby Tank stage, there are also pitfalls to contend with, so rainbow ropes will be needed to keep the tank moving safely. Near the top, a treasure chest can be collected before moving on to the next area.
This next area is a bit more straightforward, but also more perilous, as there are more gaps to contend with between fighting more enemies. Explortles appear here, which can be used to clear out enemies and obstacles more efficiently if shot at the right time. Two more treasure chests can be obtained in this area, with the second of these being found in a challenge room.
The third area features a long fragile bridge that Kirby will need to make use of. Lots of enemies try to ambush him here, including Bombzways. Two more treasure chests can be picked up along the way. After the main set of enemies are dealt with, Kirby needs to outpace a giant rolling log while fighting more Sportles to reach the end of this area.
