Radish Ruins is a place located in the Mirror World. It is a vast series of ruins located in a harsh jungle that Kirby explores at dusk. The ruins have many booby traps, ranging from falling rocks to spiked floors. Parasol is useful to cross the spiked floors, while the Wheel ability comes in useful to speed through the ruins. The majority of the level takes place inside the ruins and occasionally, namely during the boss battle, the overgrown wilds and canyons enclosing it.

|Theme - Radish Ruins|
- Though it is impossible to confirm exactly which Mesoamerican civilization inspired Radish Ruins, it appears to draw heavy influence from the Maya culture. The level features angular architecture and wall carvings, two staples of Maya construction. Some backgrounds depict square stones protruding from the walls—these seem to be based on the Maya glyphs. One circular carving in the foreground of one room resembles the Tzolk'in. Additionally, the surrounding canyon environment resembles the Yucatán area more closely than the mountainous region of Peru, distancing it from the Andean civilizations.
- This level is similar to Orange Ocean from Kirby's Adventure. Both levels are only visited at sunset and have Meta Knight (or in this case a Meta Knight-like foe) as a boss.
- The music for Radish Ruins appears in Kirby: Squeak Squad. A rearrangement of Radish Ruin's music also was used for Dig and Dash in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse.
- In Kirby's Return to Dream Land, the second level is named Raisin Ruins. Some of the features of the interior designs are similar to Radish Ruins.
