The opening cutscene for Green Greens in Kirby's Dream Land identifies it as a stage, rather than a level.
This article is about stages in relation to levels in the Kirby games. For playable stages in the Kirby Fighters games, see Battle Stage.

A stage is typically defined as an individual playable portion of a level. In the Kirby series, almost all levels are sub-divided into three or more stages (four if the boss stage is counted), which can be accessed from the level's hub area or simply played in sequence. In almost all cases, stages are where the gameplay of any given Kirby game takes place, and several Sub-Games will tend to also be divided into stages (though these will not be covered on this page).
