Red Canyon - Stage 5 is the fifth stage of Red Canyon in Kirby's Dream Land 2. The Rainbow Drop can be found in this stage.


The stage begins in a rocky tunnel leading up and around past Sparkys and other miscreants, in and out of the water. Two doors can be found at the end of the path, right next to each-other. The left door leads to a dark room which contains a Blipper and a Maxim Tomato. This room has a hidden door which leads to an island area filled with Small Stars, which can be illuminated by Spark Kine.

The right door leads to a vertical tunnel which auto-scrolls upward. Kirby will have to be quick to not get caught by the bottomless pit at the bottom as the tunnel is eaten. Along the way, items can be collected, but enemies must also be avoided. At the top, there are two doors, one above the other. The upper door leads to a room containing a Rainbow Drop, which is blocked off by blocks that can only be destroyed with the Spark ability. Even at this, it might be tricky to deal with all the blocks without the help of Rick as well.

The lower door leads to an area with a long drop past Star Block formations and enemies. The stage exit can be found at the bottom, among rocky outcroppings.

  • At the end of the first room, the left door leads to a dark room that requires Spark Kine to illuminate. When this room becomes bright, an image of a killer whale, strikingly similar to Acro, with the caption ORCA will show up. Said image is actually a hidden door, leading to a small room with some stars and enemies.
  • In the last room, the star blocks form a crude shape depicting a happy face, followed by what appear to be the breasts, navel, and groin of an adult woman, which cannot fit a single screen. It is unclear why this formation exists in the stage, and has never been officially acknowledged by HAL Laboratory or by Nintendo, although it was shown in the Nintendo Official Guidebook for the game.
