Kirby Wiki

Dig and Dash is the fifth stage in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. It is the first stage of Yellow Dunes. It succeeds The Forest of Whispy Woods and precedes Deploy the Kirby Tank!.

General Information

Kirby starts in the desert sands but soon plunges into underground ruins. The hero must dig through clay and unlock gates with keys in order to progress. Grindarr and a Mega Grindarr guard the ruins, however, so Kirby must be careful. Drill Cottas bore through the stage's clay in great numbers--some of them are more menacing than others.


The following items are contained in this stage's Treasure Chests:


  • The stage features a rearrangement of Radish Ruins' theme from Kirby & The Amazing Mirror. Also featured are two tracks taken directly from the Japanese version of the Kirby: Right Back at Ya! episode Caterpillar Thriller (called "More Dig and Dash" and "Evade and Dig and Dash" in this game).
  • It is possible to clear this stage in less than a minute using a glitch. The Goal is in the first room, but is blocked off by a wall. The player must move Kirby to the upper area in front of the wall, then draw a rainbow rope at a steep incline. If he rolls up it at a specific angle while Tap Dashing, he can briefly pass out of bounds, letting him roll atop the wall and into the area with the Goal.[1]
