|“||A great place to start your journey, this natural setting is full of rolling hills, fleecy clouds, and bushy trees. But don't let the scenery distract you because while the animals may look cute and friendly, they can be very troublesome and dangerous.”|

Green Greens is the first stage of Kirby's Dream Land. This also makes it the first level in the entire Kirby series. Green Greens is a fairly simple level designed to let players learn the controls and basics of the game.
Kirby starts out in a lakeside grassland and midway through the level, rides a Warp Star across the lake to a small forest where the level continues. At the end of the forest is the stage's boss, Whispy Woods.
Green Greens also appears in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra as part of Spring Breeze, a condensed remake of Kirby's Dream Land. In Kirby Super Star Ultra a harder version of Green Greens; Purple Plants, appears in Revenge of the King.
Kirby is chasing a butterfly. As he chases it off screen, a strong wind picks up and blows him and a bunch of other butterflies away.
Green Greens consists of three areas: the first is a grassland, situated near a lake with few obstacles. This area has weak enemies such as Waddle Dee, Cappy and Bronto Burt. At the end of the grassland Kirby reaches a cliff and grabs a Warp Star flying across the lake to a forest in the background. As soon as Kirby lands the Warp Star he's ambushed by the stage's Mid-boss, Poppy Bros. Sr.. Poppy Bros. Jr. are common enemies in the forest, some balancing on apples or riding Grizzos. At the end of the forest is a giant hollowed-out tree. Kirby enters the tree from the end of the forest and has to climb to the top, avoiding angry Grizzos until he reaches the boss door and from there jump down to do battle with Whispy Woods.
In the Super Smash Bros. series
Though this level doesn't appear directly in the original Super Smash Bros., the stage Dream Land takes elements from a variety of grassland/forest levels from the start of Kirby games, including Green Greens.
Green Greens appears in Super Smash Bros. Melee as one of the playable stages representing the Kirby series. It is available from the start and doesn't need to be unlocked. It is considered to be one of Kirby's home stages (alongside the Fountain of Dreams) and Kirby is fought on this stage in the one-player modes.
Green Greens is a Melee Stage in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, unlocked after playing as Kirby in twenty Brawls.
Green Greens returns as a playable stage in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
The stage is made up of three floating islands. The island in the middle is the biggest, and there are two floating platforms above it. Whispy Woods, who is on the middle island, will occasionally blow wind in the direction with more fighters to disrupt the fight. Between the islands are Star Blocks and Bomb Blocks that stack up. Players can break the blocks by attacking them. If a player hits a Bomb Block, then there will be an explosion. The blocks will rebuild often after they are destroyed.
Also, Whispy Woods will shake and let out apples from the tree. The apples can be:
- Picked up and thrown at enemies
- Used to heal
- Explode when thrown

|Theme - Green Greens|
The stage in Super Smash Bros. uses an orchestral version of the original music from Green Greens in Kirby's Dream Land. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the music from the Fountain of Dreams stage from Super Smash Bros. Melee can be found as an alternate track.
Green Greens' name is derived from the color "green" in addition to "Greens," which is a term used for a variety of edible leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, and others. Both are used to refer to the lush green vegetation of the area.
|“||The wooded lands of Green Greens look very peaceful and the characters look friendly. Don't let their looks deceive you...they're not! This is a fairly straightforward level that provides a player with a good opportunity to experiment with gulping, shooting, jumping, floating and flying. Kirby will grab a Warp Star halfway through the Stage. It will take him to meet Poppy Bros. Sr. Go through the door marked by the word "In" to find a couple of Pep Brews.”|

- The music (and motifs) for Green Greens is one of the most iconic themes of the Kirby series, with it being remixed many times.
- In Kirby Star Allies, when playing the Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go! sub-game as Marx, some stage layout in Level 1 is changed to reflect Green Greens from Kirby Super Star.
