The Canyon immediately follows the events of Glacial Peak. The group at the base of the peak, consisting of Lucas, the Pokémon Trainer, Marth, Ike and the Ice Climbers, is overrun by Shadowbugs released from the Halberd flying above them. From a cliff above, Mario, Pit, Link, Yoshi, and Kirby see their predicament and jump downwards to attack the incoming members of the Subspace Army. Note that the first time through, one can only use these final five characters, not the ones that were under attack for reasons unknown, considering the group below is able for battle.
The stage consists entirely of fighting Subspace Army enemies in a stationary stage. The stage design has several platforms on the left and right sides, but a gaping hole in the middle of the stage, hence the name Canyon.
When the five characters jump from the cliff and during the battle, Battlefield plays.
