Ripple Field - Stage 1 is the first stage of Ripple Field in Kirby's Dream Land 3.


The stage begins on the water's edge, as a Broom Hatter approaches Kirby. This hatter can be swallowed for the Clean ability. The path continues to the right past a number more enemies, with the door to the next area on the other side of a shallow pool.

The door leads to a room where Kirby can choose between Pitch and Nago to accompany him further. From there, the door leads to another wide open walkway patrolled by enemies. Along the way, a small side-chamber can be accessed from inside a pool to find a small stem. Kirby should take care not to step on it, but surely something else can be done here... Further down the path, two more such chambers can be found, with two and three stems respectively.

This path has bridges over larger bodies of water, out of which Bobin can jump. A pair of Zebon also break up the path. From there, an Invincible Candy can be recovered to rush past the second bridge and up the steps to the stage exit.

In the last room, Kirby will meet up with a lavender tulip with eyes. If it is pleased with him, it will give him a Heart Star.

Heart Star guide[edit]

Pitch in conjunction with Clean is needed to water the flowers, but they will be crushed if hit a second time, so care is needed.

There are three side-chambers in the walkway past Pitch and Nago. Kirby needs to enter each of these with Pitch and the Clean ability, and use that ability to lob water at each of the stems in these rooms to make them grow into tulips. If all six tulips grow and are not subsequently damaged, Kirby can obtain a Heart Star from another tulip at the end of the stage.
