Dream Land (プププランド, Pupupu Land) is a stage in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.

Stage layout[edit]

It is a scrolling stage taking place in various areas of Kirby's Dream Land. As an added reference, all of the area's locales are rendered in an identical style to the original Game Boy's monochromatic screen; furthermore, the edges of the battlefield border resemble those of the Game Boy, complete with a red LED on the left border to show the life remaining in the Game Boy's batteries. Near the end of timed matches, this light begins to dim, as if the Game Boy's batteries were dying out.

If the L button is held while selecting the stage, the Game Boy's screen will follow a black and white palette instead of green, mimicking later models.

Phases[edit]

  • Green Greens: This section starts in front of a building with "IN" on it. The stage starts here (with a Game Boy start-up). A hand then appears pointing to the right, signalling the fighters to go that way. The stage then scrolls, passing over a pit and stopping at a cliff.
  • Float Islands: This section starts at the end of an island, while a ship's hull is visible. Characters are not able to swim in the water, though the water will make a splash effect when entered. The hand appears, scrolling the stage. The stage will pass over the whole ship, which has crates on it. These crates must be jumped over. The stage stops at an island with two platforms.
  • Bubbly Clouds: This section starts with four cloud platforms: two at the bottom and two at the top. The hand appears to move the screen. It stops on three cloud platforms.
  • Castle Lololo: The exterior features two platforms on the bottom. The bottom-right platform has three small platforms above it. The interior has one bottom platform and three others arranged in a triangle. They are all hard platforms, so it can provide a cave of life.
  • Mt. Dedede: The boxing ring is completely flat and the Boss Rush lobby has one bottom platform and two platforms on the left and right sides of the stage.


Ω Form[edit]

The Omega form is set in the Green Greens portion. It does not scroll and walk-off areas are absent. The "Game Boy" border is also not seen. Unlike its normal version, the stage appears in 3D. The black and white variant can still be accessed.

Glitches[edit]

  • A glitch can occur in the King Dedede's castle area of the stage causing the floor to "disappear". Players can randomly fall onto the lower blast line where it is impossible to get KO'd.(citation needed)
  • Another glitch can occur where one of Olimar's Pikmin will become stuck below a platform that is not drop-through. The Pikmin will continue to be in its falling animation, but will still follow Olimar until he goes out from above the platform or until the stage shifts to a new section.

Kirby's Dream Land was a game debuting on the original Game Boy, with five stages. Players controlled Kirby as he traveled through Dream Land, picking up food, Superspicy Curries, Maxim Tomatoes, and 1-ups. The five stages were Green Greens, Castle Lololo, Float Islands, Bubbly Clouds, and Mt. Dedede. Mt. Dedede was the last stage, and players were given the option to begin again.

Trivia[edit]

  • The Pic of the day from August 8, 2014 that features the monochrome Kirby and King Dedede costumes further references Kirby's Dream Land, as the game would have had monochromatic graphics on the Game Boy. The reveal took place before it was revealed that the stage was Kirby-themed.
    • Additionally, the Miiverse caption for the aforementioned picture references the Game Boy start-up sequence jingle.
  • Due to the close proximity of the background, no Star KOs occur in this stage; only standard KO blasts and Screen KOs occur. This also applies to its Ω form.
  • In a Smash battle with four players on the non-omega version of this stage, if the fourth player is Jigglypuff, it will fall through the stage as the match begins.
  • This stage was originally conceived as being based upon Super Mario Land.
