Vegetable Valley - Stage 4 is the fourth and final normal stage of the first world, Vegetable Valley, in Kirby's Adventure and its remake, Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land. It takes place before the boss fight against Whispy Woods.
This stage takes place in four primary sections, situated in a deep forest environment. The first has Kirby climb up a ladder to find an enclosed wooded space where he must do battle with Mr. Frosty. The door appears once this foe is felled.
In the next area, Kirby can use his newly acquired Freeze ability to quickly dispatch all of the foes in his way as he walks along the logs.
From there, Kirby can climb inside a hollow tree trunk guarded by Needlous and other foes.
Out in the canopies, Kirby will stumble across the first Invincible Candy (Meta Knight gifts Kirby with this in the original version). Using this, he will be able to carelessly steamroll all of the enemies on this path, and also grab a 1-Up from Shotzos on guard before reaching the stage exit.
