Kirby's Dream Land 2


Kirby's Dream Land 2 is the first in a sub-series of Kirby games with a darker tone, and requiring the collection of extra items to fight the true final boss.
A blobby new villain, Dark Matter, destroys the seven Rainbow Bridges that connect the Rainbow Islands. Kirby joins with three new Animal Friends: Rick the hamster, Coo the owl, and Kine the ocean sunfish, to save the islands and defeat Dark Matter, who has possessed King Dedede.
Copy Abilities return from Kirby's Adventure, with new transformations when Kirby is riding an Animal Friend. These altered abilities are required to reach the seven Rainbow Drops and truly defeat Dark Matter.
But who sent Dark Matter to do his evil bidding? This question is answered in Kirby's Dream Land 3...

The seven rainbow bridges, connecting the seven rainbow islands, have disappeared. King Dedede is to blame as always... or is he? The evil Dark Matter has him under his control and plans to turn Dream Land into a dark world. Kirby aims to save the day by going through seven worlds, aided this time by three animal friends (though you never see Rick the Hamster used in this run).
To get the true ending to the game, the player has to find a rainbow drop on each island, which form the rainbow sword after the main showdown with Dedede. These rainbow drops are hidden off the main paths of the stages, and most of them require a special power to break the barrier guarding the drop. This has a large effect on the route in some stages.
illayaya's run is over five minutes faster than the previous run by Soulrivers. Part of this is due to cutscene skips after bosses, though this run is also much more optimized. Details can be found in the submission comments.
