This article is about the musical theme for Cloudy Park in Kirby's Dream Land 2. For the level itself, see Cloudy Park.

Cloudy Park is the stage theme of Level 6: Cloudy Park in Kirby's Dream Land 2.

Description[edit]

The Cloudy Park theme is a gentle tune with a bouncy, uplifting beat. It notably features a lead instrument that sounds reminiscent of a clarinet or violin.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Dream Land 2[edit]

The original version first appears with the level cutscene movie when Kirby enters Cloudy Park for the first time. In this game, the tune is in 3/4 time, as is standard for cloud levels in the Kirby series.

It also plays in any Cloudy Park stage as long as Kirby is without an Animal Friend. Otherwise, the respective theme of the Animal Friend plays.

The Cloudy Park theme can be found as BGM 37 (with intro) and 38 (without intro) in Dream Land 2's Sound Test.

Remix[edit]

During Morpho Knight's boss battle in Guest Star ????
