Ripple Field - Stage 3 (Kirby's Dream Land 3)
- This article is about the stage in Kirby's Dream Land 3. For the stage in Kirby's Dream Land 2, see Ripple Field - Stage 3 (Kirby's Dream Land 2).
Kirby can choose between Rick and Kine before moving on. From there, the path gets decidedly steeper as it leads across walkways and suspended platforms, then back into the water. Just before the door, a 1-Up can be recovered in the middle of a raging rotary current if the Cutter or Spark ability is used to get it.
The next area is a segmented cave area. In the middle is an open place where a Sub-Game can be played with a local Elieel. Kirby has to guess which pot the eel is in after it and the Gordos stop shuffling. Three correct guesses in a row are needed to win the game, but Kirby can progress regardless of his result.
The path continues through a submerged cave, then returns to dry land. Once this happens, the area starts to auto-scroll to the right. From there, it leads back into the water, through some forked paths, then stops at the end, where the stage exit can be reached back out of the water.
In the last room, if Kirby won the minigame earlier, he will get a Heart Star from the Elieel.

Along the path of this stage, Kirby will run into an open field with five large pots. An Elieel will emerge from one of them, and then begin a game with Kirby. Elieel will then start shuffling around between the pots, with Gordos occupying the other four. They'll pop up and back down repeatedly, getting faster each time. After the last pop-up, Kirby then has to guess which pot the Elieel is in. This game plays three times, and if Kirby gets all three guesses right, he will win, and be able to collect the Heart Star at the end of the stage.
