Kirby, Rick, Coo, and Kine have finally reached the final chapter of their journey. On a cliff, they look at the castle where Dark Matter resides. Kirby and Co. head to the castle, although Kine seems to fall behind the group at some point.
Dark Castle, as its name suggests, takes place in a Gothic black castle floating in the skies of Dream Land. The castle is shrouded in darkness, and is the source of the Dark Matter that is slowly destroying Dream Land. It is considered one of the seven Rainbow Islands.
All sorts of enemies inhabit the castle, which is also loaded with all kinds of traps. The level is unique in the fact that the first, third, fourth, and sixth stages have just three rooms, while the second and fifth stages have five more, and the seventh and last stage has ten more, and contains a Rainbow Drop. The castle itself is almost completely symmetrical, and many of the stages are mirror images of each other. Each stage ends with a mini-boss fight, and at the very top, Kirby fights the boss, the Dark Matter-possessed King Dedede. If Kirby managed to get every Rainbow Drop after beating Dedede, he will get the Rainbow Sword, which forces Dark Matter out of him and Kirby follows him into the starry skies above Dark Castle where they have a final showdown.
