Sky-High Whispy Woods is the sixteenth stage in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. It is the fourth stage of Blue Sky Palace and the fourth boss stage of the game. It succeeds Kirby Rocket's Big Blastoff and precedes Woodland Battle.
Kirby braves a windy area with dangling spike balls to reach the boss. Whispy Woods has changed dramatically since his encounter in The Forest of Whispy Woods--the most significant change is his metallic trunk which repels Tap Dashes. He retains his wind, spike ball, and mine-dropping attacks, now spawning more spike balls and dropping more mines across the area. He can also summon chains of Barampas to pursue Kirby. The player's only effective method of counterattack is to collect Whispy's Point Stars and smash into him with a Star Dash. Once again, the player can deal heavy damage by rapidly tapping Kirby when he has Star Dashed into the boss.
