Rainbow Drops are key items in the Game Boy game Kirby's Dream Land 2. A total of seven Rainbow Drops exist in the game, one being hidden on each of the Rainbow Islands. Once Kirby succeeds in acquiring all of the drops and defeating King Dedede, they combine into the Rainbow Sword, enabling him to fight Dark Matter and complete the game.

Rainbow Drop Locations

All of the Rainbow Drops in the game are located in secluded rooms, which are found in a certain stage of every level and usually hidden. Most of these rooms contain two or more special blocks, which initially keep Kirby from obtaining the drop. In order to get rid of them, a particular Copy Ability, or a particular combination of an Animal Friend and an ability, must be used.

The door to the first Rainbow Drop.

Grass Land

Grass Land's Rainbow Drop room acts as the third section of the level's third stage. Unlike most of the other chambers, it is not hidden, but simply accessed as part of the regular path Kirby must take through the stage.

To break the blocks in the room, the Parasol ability is required.

Big Forest

The second drop awaits behind this door.

The Rainbow Drop room in Big Forest can be accessed through a door in the second stage. To find it, Kirby has to drop down to the left at the beginning of the stage.

To destroy the blocks in the room, the Needle ability is needed.

Ripple Field

Uncovering the door to Ripple Field's Rainbow Drop room.

In Ripple Field, the Rainbow Drop room is found in the third stage. Kirby must dive in the second section and enter a door that can only be reached by using Kine, which takes him to a small, dark chamber. Inside, another door is located, which leads to the Rainbow Drop room. It is hidden, but can be made visible with Kine and the Spark ability.

To shatter the blocks in the room, the Stone ability has to be used.

Iceberg

Kirby swallowing the Star Blocks above the entrance.

The entrance to Iceberg's Rainbow Drop room is found in the third section of the fourth stage. Kirby needs Kine and the Burning ability in order to reach it. The door is located in the approximate middle of the area, below a number of Star Blocks, which cannot be destroyed by Kine's Burning ability; to remove them, the ability has to be temporarily dropped, allowing Kirby to inhale the blocks.

To break the blocks keeping Kirby from reaching the Rainbow Drop, the Burning ability is necessary.

Red Canyon

The door to Red Canyon's Rainbow Drop room.

Red Canyon's Rainbow Drop room can be accessed from the second, auto-scrolling section of stage 5. When Kirby reaches the door to the third section, he must continue to go upwards in order to locate the entrance to the room, which is guarded by three Spikeys on tiny platforms.

To destroy the blocks in the room, Kirby requires the help of Rick and the Spark ability.

Cloudy Park

Kirby and Coo at the entrance leading to sixth drop.

In Cloudy Park, the Rainbow Drop room is found in the final section of the second stage. Its entrance is not hidden, but rather located in plain sight near the goal door.

To obliterate the blocks, the Cutter ability is needed. The ability can only be obtained with Coo, who can be freed from a bag in the previous area.

Dark Castle

One of five rooms in which Kirby must choose an ability.

Dark Castle's Rainbow Drop room is found in the seventh stage. In the second section, icons of Copy Abilities are hidden behind blocks, which can only be seen if Kirby illuminates the room using Kine and the Spark ability. The following five areas all require Kirby to choose one of two Copy Abilities to advance. Kirby has to pick and use the abilities in the order provided by the icons in the second section in order to reach the Rainbow Drop.

There are no breakable blocks in the Rainbow Drop room, but Kirby can only acquire the drop if he used his abilities in the right order in the previous sections.
