Maxim Tomato Boxes are red cubes slightly larger than Kirby, lined with silver edges, and with a Maxim Tomato picture on their front. They can be found before various mid-boss encounters in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, as well as in the rest areas of both The Arena and The True Arena. They will also appear in the rest area before boss fights, given that the player has already lost to the boss six times before. They can be placed on the floor to be picked up again later, or thrown. Once landing after being thrown, they will charge up for a few seconds before unfolding to reveal a Maxim Tomato. During their charging time, they can be picked up again and will return to their normal state.
