Dreamy Darkness is the second stage of Neo Greo in Kirby: Canvas Curse. Kirby travels through this area on his quest to defeat Drawcia. Dreamy Darkness is a collection of dark stages with a similar appearance to Ghost Grounds. This stage also joins Rift Ruin by having more than three areas. Dreamy Darkness contains three hidden medals for Medal Swap purchases, and courses in Rainbow Run offer six more medals.
Keeping consistency with the name, this stage is completely dark. Only Kirby, enemies, and some objects are visible. The layout of the stage is mostly horizontal, but walls and ledges only open in staggered spots. Most of the openings are near an array of spikes on the wall. When the lanterns are not lighting the area, the spiked patches of wall are likely to be hit, as they are invisible in the darkness. Open pits are another danger lurking in the dark. Waddle Dees, Bouncies, Shotzos, and a Needle-yielding enemy can be found in this area.
With the Needle Copy Ability and some backtracking the medal for this area can be found behind blocks that can only be broken with that ability. Several Point Stars can be acquired from the middle chambers and just before the exit door.
This area appears as the Time Trial mode of Rainbow Run.
The second area is one of the smallest. Kirby begins at the lowest section. The room is divided into several floors with different enemies on each level. To reach the door, Kirby merely needs to ascend through each floor. The floors are "one-way" as backtracking to lower levels is not possible. If the Needle copy ability has been retained from the previous area, a second medal can be acquired. Blocks specifically weak against the Needle ability are on the lowest level.
This area appears as the Line Trial challenge of Rainbow Run.
This treacherous area, though small drops Kirby through nests of Gordos, spiked surfaces, and contact activated fans. Point Stars are abundant, but can be hazardous to attempt obtaining.
Another very small and dangerous area. The walls and floors are lined with electrical blocks and the space between them is very narrow. Even the Waddle Dee in the area is damaged by the blocks. This area is also dark until activating one of the lanterns. The final medal for Dreamy Darkness also rests here beneath stone blocks destroyed by a Bomb Block.
This small area again places Kirby near the top, requiring him to descend to the exit door. The area has plenty of point stars, but is also full of Gordos and clear blocks. An Energy Drink can be found just before the exit door.
The final area is at first a dark hallway, but the central room locks Kirby in and lights up. Kirby is challenged to destroy several parachuting bombs, in order to progress to the next chamber and exit door
