From WiKirby, your independent source of Kirby knowledge.
- This article is about the level in Kirby's Dream Land 3. For the level in Kirby's Dream Land 2, see Iceberg (Kirby's Dream Land 2).
Iceberg is the fifth level in Kirby's Dream Land 3. It is an area dominated by ice and water, with King Dedede's castle at the far end of it. The Boss of this level is King Dedede. This level follows Cloudy Park and (granted all of the Heart Stars were collected) is followed by Hyper Zone.
Kirby is building a snowman with ChuChu, Nago and Pitch. Gooey accidentally knocks it over and gets covered in snow, but the others put him back on the snowman thinking it just rolled off. Once they put the hat on, Gooey makes a face similar to a Peloo that pops out of the snowman, which surprises the group.
The intro cutscene for Iceberg
Iceberg is set at an arctic coastline, with varied topography and a wide sea. Also featured are a number of palaces which Kirby and friends will need to traverse. Chilly weather and auto-scrolling areas are prevalent in this level. As Kirby progresses, he will need to move past a snowy hillside in stage 1, move ahead of avalanches and through a magmatic cavern in stage 2, travel through (appropriately enough) a massive iceberg in stage 3, travel through an icy cave in stage 4, make his way through a long series of rooms in stage 5, and ascend King Dedede's getaway castle in stage 6.
The Heart Stars in this level are easy enough to obtain, but the one in stage 5 can be a pain if Kirby does not know which Animal Friend to take through.
Each stage is unlocked in succession after clearing the previous one. Defeating King Dedede and collecting every Heart Star is necessary to move on to Hyper Zone.
