Rainbow Resort - Stage 6 is the sixth stage of Rainbow Resort in Kirby's Adventure and its remake, Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land. It is a direct throwback to Kirby's debut game, Kirby's Dream Land. The background, music and stage graphics are taken directly from that game.


This stage takes place in eight major rooms, each of which resemble levels from Kirby's Dream Land. The first takes place in a monochrome field resembling Green Greens, with a straightforward path past some basic enemies.

The second room takes place in the woods, past Poppy Bros. Jr.s riding apples.

In the third room, Kirby enters a castle representing Castle Lololo and walks through a dark hall.

In the fourth room, Kirby finds himself in a brighter interior space, where he can pick up a 1-Up and Maxim Tomato before proceeding.

The fifth room is a tropical locale styled after Float Islands, where Kirby will need to proceed past bottomless pools and aquatic foes.

In the sixth room, Kirby ventures through a series of narrow underground tunnels past Kabu, Gordos and spikes.

In the seventh room, Kirby finds himself up in a cloud area styled after Bubbly Clouds, where he must work his way past Scarfys who fly in.

The last room leads to a palace interior and a thin winding tunnel, which open up above to a large starry ascent past enemies who grant Copy Abilities. The stage exit can be found on the highest platform.

If Kirby wants to find the Big Switch here, he must enter the moon in the last room.

  • The enemies which appear in this stage - fittingly enough - are enemies which also appear in Kirby's Dream Land.
  • Due to the gimmick of this stage, it is the only one whose background graphics do not differ greatly between Kirby's Adventure and Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land.
    • However, the original Kirby's Adventure version features monochrome enemies and objects as well. It also monochromatizes the HUD.
    • Additionally, the graphics used in Kirby's Adventure are actually just monochrome versions of the updated level graphics from Kirby's Adventure, which do not exactly match the corresponding graphics from Kirby's Dream Land. This is most noticeable in the Bubbly Clouds segment. In Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, the proper original sprite art is used.
  • In the Kirby's Adventure version of this stage, the theme music is pitched down one note from the original Kirby's Dream Land version. This shift is not present in the Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land version.
  • A reference to this stage can be found in Access Ark - Stage 8 EX in Kirby: Planet Robobot. At the end of that stage, Kirby powers a monitor which portrays Kirby and Meta Knight fighting on the platform containing the goal door from this stage. Similarly, the moon can be entered to access a secret in the Kirby: Planet Robobot stage as well.
