Kirby's Adventure (Japanese: 星のカービィ 夢の泉の物語 - Hoshi no Kaabii: Yume no Izumi no Monogatari - "Kirby of the Stars: The Tale of the Fountain of Dreams") is the second title of the Kirby series and the first and only Nintendo Entertainment System game in the series, featuring a more expansive color palette and visual style, as well as much more extensive gameplay, than Kirby's Dream Land on the Game Boy. It also marks the introduction of one of Kirby's trademark special abilities: swallowing the enemies he has inhaled to receive special Copy Abilities.

A remake of the game, known as Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, was released for the Game Boy Advance in 2002. A demo of Kirby's Adventure later appeared as one of the Masterpieces in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The game also was remade as a 3D Classic on the 3DS eShop.



Kirby wakes up from a nap, realizing he has not had a pleasant dream all night. He heads to the Fountain of Dreams to figure what went wrong. Once there, he finds out that King Dedede has stolen the Star Rod, the source of the Fountain of Dreams' power. Dedede has broken the Rod into seven pieces, giving one to each of his six assistants, and keeping the seventh for himself (his assistants being the six world bosses plus himself). Kirby adventures through Dream Land to retrieve the seven Star Rod pieces and return it to the Fountain of Dreams.

After Kirby retrieves all seven Star Rod pieces and unites them, he tosses the Star Rod into the Fountain of Dreams. Suddenly, a mysterious being named Nightmare emerges from the fountain and flies into the starry space, shrouding Dream Land in darkness. King Dedede evidently had known that Nightmare infected the Fountain of Dreams, and had hidden the Star Rod with good intentions. The King then launches Kirby in the sky, ready to defeat Nightmare with the completed Star Rod. Once he is defeated, good dreams return to the people of Dream Land.
