The atmosphere of the stage is in contrast with the cheery mood of the rest of Treat Land. The gloomy Dark Manor is the "dark" area of Kirby's Epic Yarn, where Kirby and Prince Fluff can only see a certain distance away from themselves as a layer of black denim covers the rest. There are no Metamortexes in the stage. Due to the nature of the stage, it is the final and most difficult instance of Zeke's hide and seek sub-game. This stage is the one most out of place within Treat Land.
