What was that sound? is a Sub-Game encountered in Kirby's Dream Land 3, in Stage 3 of Iceberg. This game is also the final part of MG-5. It is hosted by Chef Kawasaki.


The game consists of three rounds. Each round, Chef Kawasaki calls down five Gordos that hit the ice, one after the other. Each Gordo makes a different sound when it lands. The chef then hits his frying pan on a sixth Gordo, making the same sound as one of the previous five. Kirby has to guess which of the five Gordos matched the sound that the pan made. If Kirby gets all three guesses right, he can collect a Heart Star at the end of the stage.

If Gooey is out, and controlled by another player, he can help Kirby guess. If either one of them gets the right answer, they get the point.
