Green Greens (グリーングリーンズ, Green Greens) is a starting stage in Super Smash Bros. Melee and must be unlocked in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It is also Kirby's home stage, and where the player faces him and his teammates in All-Star mode on this stage. This stage is also set to appear in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
The stage is made up of three floating islands. The island in the middle is the largest. There are two floating platforms over the middle island. The tree, Whispy Woods, in the middle of the middle island will occasionally blow gales of wind in a certain direction to disrupt the fight. Between the islands are blocks that stack up. The blocks will stop appearing once a stack is five blocks high, and will not start again until the fifth block is destroyed. Combatants can break the blocks by attacking them; hitting a Bomb Block causes an explosion in the vicinity, dealing heavy knockback and damage. Bomb blocks do 22% damage and have high knockback. The two islands to the left and right are somewhat small compared to middle island, and are usually where most of the fighting occurs.
Also, Whispy Woods will shake and let out apples from the tree. If players are on the middle section when this occurs, they will be damaged by them. Once on the ground, the apples can be one of two types of item: that which picked up and thrown at enemies, or a food item used to heal.
This stage is loosely based on Green Greens, which first appeared as the first level in Kirby's Dream Land; however, it aesthetically resembles its appearance as the first level in Kirby Super Star's Spring Breeze.
Whispy Woods, a sentient apple tree, first appeared in Kirby's Dream Land as the first boss and has appeared in numerous Kirby games since. In most games, he attacks by dropping apples over Kirby and shooting gusts of air at him; however, in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, Whispy Woods attempts to shake apples off himself onto Kirby. In this stage, Whispy Woods will occasionally shake out apples onto the stage that damage fighters when hit. He will also sometimes blow out air; however, this only pushes fighters without damaging them.
In Kirby Super Star's The Great Cave Offensive, there is a room with falling stars that turn into Star Blocks that stack up. The falling stars also damage Kirby if they fall on him. Bomb Blocks, first appearing in Kirby's Adventure, are exploding blocks that cause chain reactions in some levels that allow Kirby to proceed. In this stage, there are falling Star and Bomb Blocks; however, unlike in The Great Cave Offensive, the falling Star Blocks do not damage fighters.
Green Greens is banned in tournaments in both Melee and Brawl, though older rulesets for Melee did allow the stage to be used; the reason for its banning is due to its overabundance of opportunities at camping. The bomb blocks can also easily disrupt matches, and in Brawl, their knockback is enough to allow for KOs. The side blast lines are also abnormally close to the platforms, allowing for early KOs, and the tower of blocks allows for wall infinites, such as shine infinites by Fox and chain throws by King Dedede.
