Kirby Wiki

Royal Road is the sixth and final floating island of Floralia and serves as the sixth level in Kirby: Triple Deluxe.

General Information

Royal Road is the home of the regal Queen Sectonia, Taranza, and many insect variants of previously-seen enemies. Sectonia's castle is both medieval and technologically advanced. Multiple stages are made up of locations and settings from previous levels connected by Warp Holes. Here, Kirby rescues the People of the Sky, rescues King Dedede from Taranza's clutches, and battles Floralia's tyrant head-on. Seven Sun Stones are required to open the boss stage.

Each boss is fought again across two separate stages. This time, however, they switch up their tactics, using moves usually only reserved for when they have low health. In essence, their movesets closely resemble those of their DX versions.

While this is not the final level in Story Mode, it is in Dededetour. Hanging on Sectonia's wall is the Dimension Mirror which beckons to Shadow Dedede and the evil Dark Meta Knight. Dedede must defeat these villains to complete the sub-game.

The game's last two HAL rooms can be found in Stages 1 and 5. After defeating Gigant Edge in Stage 1, Kirby can fly up into the sky and enter the moon like a door (harkening back to Bubbly Clouds from Kirby's Dream Land). This leads the hero to the HAL Room. In Stage 5, Kirby must wait 86 seconds in the room with the 5x5 3D Securitron blocks. After the time is up, the blocks retract and push out each time with a letter from the word HAL. A door will then appear on the bottom of the screen, leading to a room with Tilt Gondolas and items.

Then, move them back to the left to that only the top weight is above the left Durable Block. Use Sword from Gigant Edge or Beetle from the HAL Room to cut the rope of the top 8-ton weight. Use the 3D Warp Star to go into the foreground to press the switch, opening the gate above the second Durable Block. Move the remaining weight to the far right and cut the rope.
  3. Fall through the soft platform in the second room with the Waddle Dee Tank. Destroy the Bomb Block, as it will get rid of the platform beneath the tank. Destroy the Bomb Block preventing further progress. Destroy the barrel to find a 3D Warp Star. Take it to the background to retrieve the Treasure Chest.

In the optional room, move the Slide Laser Robot under the ice below the toy truck. Move the truck into the pit. Pull the Slide Laser Robot so that it's under the block of ice containing the Sun Stone. Pull on the purple switch once the ice has melted in order to safely collect the Sun Stone.
