As the name implies, there are a lot of gaps and drops in this stage. Kirby can float, but airborne enemies insure that the skies are anything but friendly. Will you spit at an enemy, only to deflate and fall into a bottomless pit?

Red Canyon is a level appearing as the 5th level in Kirby's Dream Land 2, appearing after Iceberg and before Cloudy Park. It is one of the few levels that takes place in a rocky region of Dream Land.

Level Intro

Stone Kirby and Rick are rolling across some rocky hills towards Coo, who is perched on a stone connected to a rocky wall. Kirby and Rick crash into the wall and Coo and the stone fall onto Kirby. Luckily, Kirby is still in his Stone form so he isn't harmed. They all sigh with relief when they see that Kirby wasn't hurt.

General Information

Red Canyon is a barren, mountainous area in Dream Land, and is one of the seven Rainbow Islands. Red Canyon's craggy environment is diverse - there are sandy badlands, deserts, caverns, and many different rock formations. It has huge water-filled tunnels underneath its surface. It is known for its red-colored rocks, which Red Canyon is named after. While not directly appearing in Kirby's Dream Land 3, Kirby travels through Sand Canyon, a similar level in terms of its name and its scenery, and bosses (both level have tag-team styled bosses). Collectively, Mr. Shine & Mr. Bright make up the boss of this level.

In Stage 5, there is a dark room with a portrait of an orca, only visible with Kine and Spark. It is actually a hidden door that leads to an island with 7 stars, two Glunks, two Propeller Bombs, and two Scarfys.

Stage 5 of Red Canyon contains groups of Star Blocks in the shape of a naked woman. This was effectively hidden because the screen isn't large enough to display all the blocks at once. The full image was eventually revealed in a Japanese guidebook.[1]

In terms of geography, Red Canyon is somewhat like Yogurt Yard. The two levels even share the same music.

Rainbow Drop

Stage 5: Use Spark and Rick (obtained in Stage 3). There is a chance that Captain Stitch (in Stage 4) will grant Rick as an animal friend. Spark can be obtained by inhaling one of the Sparkys early in the level. In the auto-scrolling room, use Spark and Rick to reach the very top (past the first exit door; there are some Spikeys in the way however). Use Spark with Rick to destroy the Elemental Blocks. Get rid of Rick and float across the pit in order to reach the Rainbow Drop.

Yogurt Yard is the fifth level in Kirby's Adventure and Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land. It is a forested area around an immense mountain filled with waterfalls with an interior full of caves.

Red Canyon of Kirby's Dream Land 2 shares its musical theme. Later, a remixed version features as the background music in Growth Grasses in Kirby: Canvas Curse
