The Fountain of Dreams in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land

The Fountain of Dreams, also known as the Dream Spring,[1] is a location that has appeared in many Kirby games. It made its first appearance in Kirby's Adventure, as well as in its remake Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land. The fountain is said to be powered by the Star Rod, and uses this energy to give good dreams to the citizens of Dream Land.

Appearances

Kirby's Adventure and Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land

The Fountain of Dreams cutscene

In Kirby's Adventure and its remake, Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, the Fountain of Dreams appears to serve as the game's final level. King Dedede is fought in front of the fountain, and the Nightmare emerges from it after Kirby returns the Star Rod to its mount on the top of the fountain. From there, Kirby must use the Star Rod to chase down and destroy Nightmare once and for all.

Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra

In Kirby Super Star and its remake, Kirby Super Star Ultra, the Fountain of Dreams appears and plays a minor role in Milky Way Wishes. The fountain appears in the game's opening cutscene, where it is shown creating a Warp Star for Kirby to use to travel through space. It also serves as a background for when the sacred star of one of the planets appears.

Super Smash Bros. Series

The Fountain of Dreams appears as a stage in Super Smash Bros. Melee. The stage is actually set in a large pool of water, with the fountain in the background. There are two floating platforms on the left and right side of the stage that are supported by a jet of water and move up and down, and one stationary floating platform in the middle of the stage. The music that plays on this stage is a remix of the music played on courses 1 and 3 in Gourmet Race from Kirby Super Star. The design of the fountain and the music that plays on the stage was later re-used for the King Dedede battle in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land. The stage's music was also used in Kirby Air Ride as an alternate track for Nebula Belt, in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as an alternate track for the Green Greens stage, and in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U as an alternate track for the Dream Land stage.

Trophy Information

This mystical fountain in Dream Land uses the power of the Star Rod to create a gush of pleasant dreams that flow like water. The dreams then become a fine mist and drift over the land, bringing peaceful rest to one and all. It's been confirmed that there are identical facilities on other planets near Pop Star.
