The Lake Shore (湖畔, Lake Shore) is the 11th stage of the Subspace Emissary.

Overview[edit]

The level starts off with Kirby noticing something in the far distance and accidentally leaving Zelda/Peach behind. The princess calls out to stop him but no avail. After he leaves and before the princess has a chance to go after him, Bowser comes with a Dark Cannon, surprises her and with no chance to react or call for Kirby to help her Bowser fires and turns Zelda/Peach into a trophy while Kirby runs in the far distance unaware of the princesses trophification. False Bowser appears, turns into Shadow Bugs, dissolves into the trophy, and creates a false princess. Upon that, Mario and Pit or Link and Yoshi (depending on which princess was turned into a trophy earlier), are seen running along the lake. Up on a hill the false princess aims at the duo with a Dark Cannon, but her Dark Cannon is destroyed by Pit or Link, who slices it in half, Pit/Link is then joined by his partner and the duo then prepare to fight the evil clone. A battle starts between either Mario and Pit vs. False Zelda or Link and Yoshi vs. False Peach.

After the battle, Mario or Link sees False Peach/Zelda dissolve and mistakes the clone as the real princess. Upon the confusion, Mario or Link runs up the hill and attacks Link or Mario in revenge for supposedly destroying their respective lovers. The next battle ensues: Mario and Pit vs. Link and Yoshi or the other way around. Upon defeat, the team who was not controlled by the player turn into trophies. King Dedede appears in Wario's Cargo, carrying the trophies of Ness, Luigi, and Peach/Zelda; the latter of which is spotted by Mario/Link. King Dedede grabs the team of Mario and Pit or Link and Yoshi. When he successfully grabs them, Kirby appears and cuts the arm off the Cargo using Final Cutter and releases Mario and Pit or Link and Yoshi from their trophy forms. Then King Dedede turns around and drives straight into the group. Link or Pit will shoot an arrow at the Cargo and it falls apart, heading straight toward The Cave. The group of Mario, Pit, Link, Yoshi, and Kirby run near the Cargo, which starts the next part of the level. After that part of the level is complete, the group comes upon an entrance to a cave.

In the epilogue of the level, Ganondorf is shown in a control room. He then gives Bowser coordinates on where to find King Dedede's castle via computer screen.

Trivia[edit]

  • This is the only level where the player can only pick two characters after completion.
  • This is the only stage with a possible CPU ally.
  • It is unknown why Kirby left Peach/Zelda behind or if he even noticed she was gone or heard Bowser kidnap her.
  • After completing the Subspace Emissary, players can change the beginning fights by revisiting Midair Stadium and rescuing a different princess. However, this will not unlock alternate cutscenes and can only be done so on a new file.
  • It is unknown why the fight of Link and Yoshi vs Mario and Pit was not stopped by Mario and Yoshi considering the fact that they share a family-like bond and should be able to work out the situation.
