Ripple Star is a planet from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. It is Ribbon's home and only other star to Pop Star that has seriously suffered by the infection of Dark Matter. It is a star home to the fairies, and is heart-shaped. Ripple Star is the 6th level in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. It comes after Shiver Star, and before Dark Star.
When Ripple Star is first seen, it is severely corrupted by the Dark Matter. However, after Dark Star is created, it is shown on the map screen as cleared of the Dark Matter.
The boss of Ripple Star is Miracle Matter, posing as the "final boss", if the player hasn't collected all of the Crystal Shards yet. Once the player collects all of the crystal shards and defeat Miracle Matter again, they can access the final level, where the true final boss is fought, 0². Once 0² is defeated, the Dark Matter withdraws itself from Ripple Star and explodes in the distance.
Ripple Star's environment resembles Pop Star's, with similar enemies and level layout. The first level of Ripple Star is very similar to the first level of Pop Star, with a similar layout and the same music. The only differences would be the mid-boss, the enemies throughout the level, and the color and background designs.
The fate of Ripple Star depends on the number of Crystal Shards Kirby collected during his adventure.
If Kirby didn't collect every single shard, then the power of the shard from Miracle Matter dispels the Dark Matter surrounding Ripple Star. Celebrations ensue, and everyone except for Ribbon leaves Ripple Star in a special ship. As the ship disappears, Ribbon continues to look up, but the Queen turns to the player and scowls eerily.
If Kirby collected all the shards, then the power of the shard evicts the Dark Matter so forcefully it explodes in space. Suddenly, however, the shard shoots a light beam at the Fairy Queen herself. There was Dark Matter residing in her, and as the Queen faints, the Dark Matter flies into space and expands, forming the ominous Dark Star. When it seems all hope is lost, Kirby pulls out a telephone-esque device which he uses to call his Warp Star (the only instance of it in the game). The entire group flies off to Dark Star, and the player is thrown straight into the level.
A level very similar to the very first level of Pop Star, the only difference is that the enemies are much more challenging and that the log cabin containing the mid-boss is now a small mechanical room.
1. In the first area of the level, between 2 Ghost Knights.
2. In the house, obtained after beating the Sawyer Mid-Boss.
3. Near the very end of the level, gotten by using the Exploding Gordo ability on the rock in the stream.

An eerie level that involves infiltrating Ripple Star's castle. After entering a well, there is a maze of underground caverns containing underwater lakes.

2. Found in the water in the second underground area on the far left.
The inside of Ripple Star's castle. There are 11 rooms, 5 of which contain stairs themed after dawn, day, afternoon, dusk and night. 5 more rooms contain many enemies that come in waves, which must be defeated to continue. The last room is a flight of stairs that leads up to the menacing darkness cloud where Miracle Matter awaits. All of the enemies in the game are found here.
1. Appears after beating all of the enemies in the Second room.
2. Use the Fire Arrow ability on the center of the carpet in the Sixth room.
3. Found after beating all of the enemies in the Tenth room.
Level 4 (Boss)Edit
Miracle Matter is Ripple Star's boss. After it is defeated, Kirby collects the sixth and final major Crystal Shard and he and friends are able to travel to Dark Star, granted all other Crystal Shards have been collected. If the player has not collected the others, the withdrawn Dark Matter will not explode and Kirby and the gang will never notice that the Fairy Queen is under 0²'s control, leaving Ripple Star unsupervised from another invasion.
