Red Canyon - Stage 3 is the third stage of Red Canyon in Kirby's Dream Land 2.
The stage begins with three doorways in a small area. Each doorway is situated in a different environment. Taking the left door leads to a room where Kirby must contend with Masher. Defeating him reveals Kine from the bag, and allows Kirby to move on to the next room. The middle room is much the same, but has Butch guarding Coo. The right room has Blade guarding Rick.
All three paths lead to this room, which continues to the right past bridges and cliffs hanging over bottomless pits. The door to the next room can be found on a rather skinny platform to the right.
The door leads to another open area with plenty of water amidst islands. This leads to a tunnel which bears a side-passage leading to a dark room with three ability-providing enemies. Defeating these enemies causes another door to appear which leads to a room with Small Stars and 1-Ups. Taking the door that appears will only allow Kirby to collect the stars, but a hidden path can be found to get the 1-Ups instead. Back on the main path, the tunnel continues until a door is reached at the end of it.
The door leads to a rocky area leading upward past several enemies. The stage exit can be found at the top of the area, guarded by Gordos and Scarfies.
- Due to the ease of access to all three Animal Friends, this stage makes a good place to quickly revisit should Kirby ever need to reunite with a specific one.
Steps are no concern for these two.
