Rainbow Resort - Stage 6
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 pieces, 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 next area takes place in the woods, past Poppy Bros. Jr.s riding apples.
From there, Kirby enters a castle representing Castle Lololo and walks through a dark hall.
The door leads to a tropical locale styled after Float Islands, where Kirby will need to proceed past bottomless pools and aquatic foes.
The last area 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.

- 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 Adventure and Nightmare in Dream Land.
- However, the original 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 Adventure, which do not exactly match the corresponding graphics from Dream Land. This is most noticeable in the Bubbly Clouds segment. In Nightmare in Dream Land, the proper original sprite art is used.
- In the 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 Nightmare in Dream Land version.
