The warp star brought Kirby and his friends to the edge of a huge city.
"Well, looks like we're back in the swing of things," said Kirby. "At least the parts didn't go flying."
"That's a relief," said Waddle Dee. "Also, look ahead!"
A minion stepped up to them, but this one was not like the other minion. It had armor covering itself, and only its glowing eyes were visible. Kirby inhaled it. And...nothing happened.
"Weird," said Kirby. "Let's move on."
They entered the city and climbed up some stairs, then onto a ramp.
"Oh no!" King Dedede exclaimed. "Giant, flying electroballs!"
Kirby looked up. "Run!" They ran as the electroballs attempted to land and pummel them. Finally they leaped over a pit...and they were safe for the moment.
Then there was a bridge made up of metal squares.
"This could be a trap," said Kirby. "If anything happens, fly immediately!"
They ran across, but suddenly the squares behind them started to disintegrate!
Kirby immediately took flight. Meta Knight, Waddle Dee, and King Dedede followed him.
Finally, Kirby signaled a halt. After clearing a few more armored minions, Kirby spotted a green, sizzling minion. He inhaled it, and it gave him the ability to shot beams and project a blue force field! He fired a beam that swept a group of minions in their tracks! Then they rushed ahead and into a door.
"It's a trap!" said Kirby. Giant bust crushers tried to crush them between the floor and the ground.
"Look!" Meta Knight shouted. "Get over here! Quickly!"
All three of them did without a second thought.
Whew! thought Kirby. "There's a gap under the bust crushers. Thank you so much, Meta Knight!" Meta Knight was quiet, Kirby knew, but he definitely opened his concealed mouth when he needed to.
Suddenly, more bust crushers poured down on them, but somehow there was a gap in each. One had spikes, so they had to duck. In fact, one even had an Energy Sphere that could have been crushed with them.
Suddenly a door appeared in the corner. As the bust crushers landed, more slowly than ever, they rushed inside.
Outside, they found themselves on a platform.
"Where are we?" asked Meta Knight.
They soon had their answer. Ahead of them stood Landia's last henchman, the Metal General!
