Big Forest is the second level in Kirby's Dream Land 2 and belongs to the Rainbow Islands. As the name implies, the level is set inside a large woodland area. It is notable for being the first level in the game to feature Coo the owl. The level's bosses are Nruff and Nelly. This level follows Grass Land and is followed by Ripple Field.


Coo the owl appears next to Kirby on a rocky cliff, where he helps Kirby pluck a fruit from a hanging branch, but accidentally makes him collide with the side of the cliff where it is hanging, causing him to lose the fruit and angrily yell at Coo.


Each stage is unlocked in succession after clearing the previous one. Defeating Nruff and Nelly is necessary to move on to Ripple Field. For more information about a particular stage, click on the link to the stage's page in the table.

Boss: Nruff and Nelly

A portion of the Nruff and Nelly fight in Dream Land 2.

Behind the boss door, Nruff and several Nellys lurk in a small area consisting of flat soil at the bottom and two long, permeable ledges above it. Both the large and the multiple smaller porcupines continuously spawn from the sides of the screen, walking and jumping across the solid ground and ledges. To beat this boss, Kirby has to attack Nruff with a Copy Ability or by inhaling the Nellys and spitting them at it. Emerging victorious enables him to continue to the next level, Ripple Field.
