Just move your Kirbys in unison, and keep that tower in check. You know you're about to see the tower come falling down when the bats fly off. Keep an eye on them.

Games

Kirby Mass Attack

Rhino Beetle appears exclusively in Stage 11 of Dedede Resort, living on the bark of the Teetering Tree. It cannot interact with the Kirbys, so it poses no threat. It acts as a warning for the player; when the Kirbys tilt the Teetering Tree too far to one side, the Rhino Beetles on the tree panic and fly away, giving the player a nonverbal cue to move the Kirbys to the other side. If the player does not act quickly enough, the tree collapses and instantly KOs the Kirbys, resulting in an immediate game over.

Even if the player rebalances the tree, the Rhino Beetles that flew away do not return. This means the player must use the insects' warning well. They cling to the outside of every room in the tree except the entrance and exit.

The bats that perch on the Skull Tower in Volcano Valley serve the same purpose as Rhino Beetles.


Bats appear exclusively in Stage 8 of Volcano Valley, hanging from the exterior ledges of the Skull Tower. They cannot interact with the Kirbys, so they pose no threat. They act as a warning for the player; when the Kirbys tilt the Skull Tower too far to one side, the bats on the building panic and fly away, giving the player a nonverbal cue to move the Kirbys to the other side. If the player does not act quickly enough, the tower collapses and instantly KOs the Kirbys, resulting in an immediate game over.

Even if the player rebalances the tower, the bats that flew away do not return. This means the player must use the bats' warning well. The bats appear hanging from ledges on the outside of every room in Skull Tower except the exit.

The Rhino Beetles that cling to the Teetering Tree in Dedede Resort serve the same purpose as these bats.
