Kirby Wiki

Snowy and cold, Shiver Star is a winter wonderland—a wonderland full of monsters and Dark Matter.
— Description • Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards Official Strategy Guide (Prima)

Shiver Star is the fifth planet visited by Kirby, Ribbon, Adeleine, King Dedede, and Waddle Dee in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. It is a world perpetually covered in ice and snow. In circumstances not clear, the planet's inhabitants all had to move in the past,[1] and left behind little more than buildings and factories which continue working long after their departure. The boss of this planet is HR-H/HR-E.


After defeating HR-H/HR-E, the Crystal Shard opens up a portal to Ripple Star. Ribbon sadly beholds the ruinous state of her home planet. Heartbroken, she turns to the others to ask them for help. After the group affirms their determination to help her, they enter the portal; Kirby goes first but trips on his way, causing him to be run over by the others, and Ribbon has to lift his body into the portal.


Stage 1

K64 Shiver Star Stage 1.png

A simple snowy stage. Many ice enemies abound here, but a wide variety of other abilities can also be found.

Crystal Shards

  1. On top of the second igloo during the bobsledding portion.
  2. Reward for defeating the Big Chilly. Burning must be used to break the ice structure. (Any Burning Power Combo can be used other than Burn + Ice, and Kirby must be careful so his momentum does not mean he exits the room, as that would destroy the shard when the Pink Puff makes his return.)
  3. Under the ice in the area after the mid-boss.

Stage 2

A stage set in the sky. Strangely, there are crystals everywhere and brightly colored star patterns. There are also wind currents which will not propel Kirby upwards, but increase his jump height.

Crystal Shards

  1. Under a cloud with a hole in it. (The cloud has four stars under it as well, and those can be easily seen)
  2. Shoot in the top left direction with the help of the Zebon.
  3. After the Big Mopoo, use the Needle + Spark Power Combo to get to it.

Stage 3

A stage that takes place inside a toy-themed mall or factory.

Crystal Shards

  1. Above the last conveyor belt.
  2. Reward for defeating the Big Pupa.
  3. Adeleine paints three fruits on the window, and Kirby must pick the corresponding colors in the adjacent area.

Stage 4

Unlike Stage 3, which just couldn't decide whether it was a toy wonderland or at least a cheerful factory, Stage 4 is most definitely a factory - a dangerous, spike-studded, smashing-hammer filled one at that. Being smashed by a Squeaky Hammer Machine or crushed by a Robot Toy results in an instant KO. The technology theme in this stage leads up to the boss fight.

Crystal Shards

  1. Enter the stage with the Stone + Needle Power Combo. Break the boxes marked with "X" and then climb the ladder to get the shard.
  2. Use the Spark + Cutter Power Combo to break the cage in the mid-boss room.
  3. In the room with the moving yellow walls, the Crystal Shard is on the 4th level, just past the entry to the next floor.
