Kirby's Dream Land 3 is Kirby's fifth platformer game for the Super Nintendo. Like Kirby's Dream Land 2 for the Game Boy, Kirby's animal friends could help him out during the game, and more were added since then. Much like the ability mixing system in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, Kirby could get one of his abilities and then get assistance from a friend to create a whole new ability. The game has been released on the Wii's Virtual Console.



By order:


When Kirby and his friend Gooey are fishing on a pleasant, sunny day, a strange black cloud begins to appear over Dream Land. It spews many other smaller black clouds out of itself across the lands. This black cloud was Dark Matter, a well-known Kirby villain today. Kirby and his friends then set off to save Dream Land from Dark Matter.


  • First appearance of Chuchu the Blob, Nago the Cat, Pitch the Bird, Kine's wife Mine, Pitch's mother Hiiru, Chuchu's friend Nyupun, Rick's girlfriend Pick, Nago's girlfriend Shiiro, Acro, Pons and Cons, and Adeleine (known here as Ado).
  • Second time King Dedede is possed by Dark Matter. It is also first time "Dark Matter Dedede" appears, where King Dedede uses attacks and movements based on Dark Matter's powers.
  • Fire Flowers appear occasionally.
