Kirby and his friends went back on his warp star, but this time it didn't take them to the forest--it took them to a desert!
"This is Raisin Ruins," said Waddle Dee. "Many of my lost siblings are here. I'll leave you to destroy them; I cannot bring myself to hurt them."
Kirby patted him on the back with his tiny, pink arm. "I understand. You won't have to spear anyone you don't want to."
Waddle Dee would have smiled if he had a mouth. "Thank you, Kirby."
This time the first minion to appear was a small lion with a striped, whip-like tail. It tried to whip Kirby and just barely missed. Waddle Dee threw a spear at it. It flew into the air and disappeared.
"That's odd," said Kirby. "Look ahead!"
Three cat-like minions called Scarfies were floating on top of a sand dune.
"Come no further," said a Scarfy.
"Do you actually think you can stop us?" King Dedede shouted back boldly.
"You'd be surprised," replied the lead Scarfy.
"Just eat him already," said King Dedede to Kirby.
Kirby shrugged, then inhaled with all his might. The Scarfy wiggled just a bit from the pressure--Kirby couldn't eat him!
The Scarfies laughed.
"You loathsome creatures!" King Dedede shouted. "I'll get you myself!" He gave a charged blow with his hammer and the Scarfies hit the ground.
"That's so odd," said Kirby.
"You said it!" said Meta Knight. "Anyway, once we get that wing, I'm sure Magolor will know what to do."
"I hope so," said Kirby. "Now let's move on!"
It was fortunate he said that--a boulder was coming their way! Kirby ran as fast as he could, followed by his allies. Suddeenly, they noticed a ladder leading up to a perch. They stood on top of it and watched another boulder pass by. They jumped off and followed it...right toward an Energy Sphere.
Inside his lair, the Grand Doomer fumed.
"Blast! They got away!" he said. "Mr. Dooter, Kirby and his friends have destroyed Whispy Woods. The Lor Starcutter is one step ahead of us! They nearly found one of the wings in the desert. You will find them and eliminate them!"
"Yes, my Lord," said Mr. Dooter.
The Grand Doomer handed him a hat. "Put this on. It will give you a wider variety of attacks."
Mr. Dooter intercepted the tool. "I will use this wisely." He put it on. "And I'm off!"
"I have prepared a pod for you. It has propellers."
"That will do." Mr. Dooter climbed inside the pod and flew off to Raisin Ruins.
