Onion Ocean - Stage 2 (simply called Stage 2 or 3-2 in-game) is the second stage of Onion Ocean in Kirby's Return to Dream Land and its remake—Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe. There are four Energy Spheres in this stage. Kibble Blade makes its first appearance in this stage.


Kirby goes swimming in the crystal-clear waters of the reef, minding the potentially dangerous sea creatures who live there.

The stage begins on a reef, with a ladder leading down to the water. Kirby will have to swim through a channel while dealing with a moderate number of bothersome sea creatures. From there, he can jump back out on the other side past a pair of guarding Leafans to reach the door.

From there, the path leads out onto a series of wooden bridges over the ocean. Blippers and whatnot will attempt to jump onto the bridge from the water to get in Kirby's way. Kibble Blade also appears to duel Kirby on the bridge, and defeating him yields the Cutter ability. The path continues across a few more bridges from here.

The next area is a deep reef section where Kirby can obtain the Spear ability. The path leads past several deep pools guarded by various enemies, including more Walfs than is comfortable.

Back out in the open air, Kirby can make use of a Stomper Boot to progress. Lots of enemies appear, which Kirby can use as stepping stones to get over bodies of water. There are also a number of spike pits, which can easily be traversed using the boot. Kirby will wear the boot out quickly, though, so a second one will appear in the middle of this area.

In the last stretch, Kirby dives back deep into the reef in an entirely underwater area. Here, he will need to contend with the impregnable Barbar eels, who will try to eat him. Swimming past them is necessary to reach the end of the stage.

Energy Sphere guide[edit]

  • After defeating Kibble Blade, Kirby can use the Cutter ability to cut the rope platform up ahead, then dive under the bridge to reach the first sphere in the left wall.
  • While swimming in the interior reef, Kirby will need to use the Spear or a similar ability to hit a switch in an otherwise unreachable nook to open the way to a side chamber. In this chamber are a number of enemies in Bomb Block barriers guarding the second sphere.
  • At the end of the Stomper Boot section, Kirby will need to use the Bronto Burts as stepping stones to reach the high platform and break the large block in the way of the door. This leads to a small side chamber in the next area where Kirby can get the third sphere.
  • One of the Barbar is guarding a cache blocked off by breakable blocks. The last sphere is inside this cache.
