Kirby Wiki

Patched Plains is a mechanized grassland on Planet Popstar and serves as the first level of Kirby: Planet Robobot.

General Information

Patched Plains is a mechanized grassland setting with tubes and mechanical grass scattered around the stages, as well as robotic trees commonly seen in Cookie Country. New locales added by the Haltmann Works Company include a train and a Laboratory. On his journey to save Popstar, Kirby can use his newly-discovered Robobot Armor to operate machinery and defeat enemies with ease.

By collecting at least four of the ten Code Cubes scattered throughout Patched Plains, Kirby disables the firewall protecting the boss. He then fights Clanky Woods.

The game's first HAL Room can be found in Stage 3. After entering a secret area containing three 1UPs, Kirby must float up to a thin passage at the top of the screen, travel through a square tube, pass a Noddy and Waddle Dee, and jump onto a Warp Star. This takes the hero to the first HAL Room.

Patch Plains' name may be a reference to the computing term "patch," a set of changes to a computing program usually in the form of an update, typically to improve the program, such as by fixing bugs.

Its Japanese name, Plain Proptom, appears to reference "prompt," a sequence of characters in a command line.

  • In Kirby Star Allies, when playing the Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go! sub-game as Susie, some stage layout in Level 1 is changed to reflect Stages 1 and 2 of Patched Plains from Kirby: Planet Robobot. Clanky Woods is represented by a giant Waddle Dee boulder that rolls after the player from right to left.
  • Patched Plains appears to be a mechanized Cookie Country, with the same kinds of trees, the same view of the moon, and a mechanized version of Cookie Country's boss: Whispy Woods.
