Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl.


Songs from Kirby's Dream Land include Green Greens from Melee and Green Greens Ver. 2 from Smash 4, two different orchestral renditions of the music for the game's opening stage of the same name; King Dedede's Theme from Brawl and King Dedede's Theme Ver. 2 from Smash 4, two arrangements of the music that plays at Mt. Dedede and when battling King Dedede; Green Greens, Castle Lololo, Float Islands, Bubbly Clouds, and Mt. Dedede, the original Game Boy versions of all the game's stage themes, which in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate were compiled into the Kirby Retro Medley; and Staff Credits - Kirby's Dream Land from Smash Ultimate, an arrangement of the game's credits theme along with that of Kirby Super Star.


Kirby and King Dedede's gray alternate costumes are based on how they appeared in this game. Kirby's up taunt is the Kirby Dance, which first appeared in this game. His victory poses are also variations of the Kirby Dance. Additionally, Kirby and King Dedede's victory themes are a cover of the "Level Completed" music. Meta Knight has the same victory theme, but it is played in heavy-metal and in electric guitars.
