|“||A small island floating on a large ocean. Kirby's not the best swimmer, but don't give up!”|
|— Instruction manual description • Kirby's Dream Land 3|
Ripple Field is part of the Rainbow Islands and is home to Kine the sunfish. It, just like any other islands and oceans based level, mostly involves swimming. It also has dark areas that can be lit up using Kine with the Spark ability. The level has underwater caverns with strong currents.
In Kirby's Dream Land 3, the level also comes complete with an iceberg and even a water temple. The boss battles here take place in a cave with water.
Kirby is watching the fish from the seashore. Just then, Kine pokes his head out of the water, looking for food. Kirby throws him an apple, but then Kine jumps up and eats Kirby instead. It turns out that Kine was helping Kirby to inhale underwater.
This Rainbow Drop is located in Stage 3. Go underwater to find a door. Enter the door. Use Spark (obtained in Stage 2) and Kine to light the dark room. Enter the hidden door. Inside is the Rainbow Drop. Stone is needed to break the Ability Blocks. Exit the room and continue through the stage. Near the end door is a Rocky. Inhale it and backtrack to the dark room. Re-enter the hidden door. Use Stone with Kine to destroy the barrier. This Rainbow Drop requires Kine in order to swim through currents. It does not, however, require Spark.
Kirby and ChuChu are walking along the seashore. Kine pops out of the ocean, looking for someone to play with. Kine snatches Kirby from ChuChu, who proceeds to snatch Kirby back from Kine. The two keep snatching Kirby back and forth until Kine accidently swallows Kirby, trapping him in Kine's stomach. ChuChu, who realizes she can't get Kirby now, gives Kine an angry glare. Kine's pupils shrinks, as he can't breathe.
