Kirby franchise strategy guide/Locations/Fountain of Dreams

The Fountain of Dreams, also known as the Dream Spring (according to Kirby's Adventure), the Spring of Dreams (according to the Japanese versions of the games, which also call it 夢の泉 (Yume no Izumi)), and the Dream Fountain (according to Kirby's Avalanche), is a fictional fountain in the Kirby series of games created by Nintendo. It is the most sacred place in Pop Star, and is found in Rainbow Resort, which is also located in that same planet itself.

The Fountain of Dreams, as seen in Super Smash Bros. Melee.



According to the Kirby's Adventure manual, the Fountain of Dreams is a well that supports all the dreams dreamt by the people of Dream Land. With it, people would dream wonderful dreams and talk about those dreams that they had had. Legends say that the Fountain of Dreams was created by the Star Rod. In fact, the star on the Star Rod's tip is an actual fragment of a star that crashed into Dream Land in the distant past. The Star Rod fuels the Fountain of Dreams and serves as the very symbol of Dream Land.

According to its trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee, it is said that there is actually more than one Fountain of Dreams. This is reinforced in Kirby Super Star, where there are several other Dream Fountains found on other planets besides Pop Star. They provide whoever wants to summon the giant wish-granting comet Nova with their energies. All seven Dream Fountains' energies are required in order for that someone to be able to summon Nova.

Other information


In Kirby's Adventure/Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, the nasty Cloaked Nightmare attacks the Fountain of Dreams trying to cause pain to the people, but King Dedede seals him away by taking the Star Rod from its altar, breaking it into seven pieces, and giving six of those pieces to his friends while keeping the seventh one for himself. However, this causes the inhabitants to have dreamless sleep, so upon hearing him talk about what he did to the Star Rod, Kirby sets out to get all seven pieces back, with Meta Knight's help. He does not know, however, what is really going on until he puts the Star Rod back on the altar, after which Nightmare is released. Kirby, with Dedede's help, defeats Nightmare, thus ensuring that Dream Land will sleep well.

The Fountain of Dreams also serves as the place where the final Avalanche tournament brackets are held in Kirby's Avalanche, and in Kirby Super Star, it sends Kirby on a difficult quest (as Marx suggested) to go collect all the seven energies of the other Dream Fountains needed to summon Nova.

Super Smash Bros.


The Fountain of Dreams is also a selectable stage in Super Smash Bros. Melee. It consists of three platforms, two of which are lowered and raised by two small gushes of water. It is one of Kirby's three stages in that game.
