''Kirby's Dream Land'' (known as Hoshi no Kābī 星のカービィ in Japan) is a 1992 video game that was released for the GameBoy that was the introduction of Kirby. The story is simple, King Dedede and his followers steal Dream Land's food and the Sparkling Stars that are used to harvest it. Kirby sets off and rescues the food and the stars from King Dedede.

It was also released for the Nintendo 3DS in 2011 and appeared in ''Kirby's Dream Collection''. As well as remade as one of the games for both ''VideoGame/KirbysSuperStar'' for the Super Nintendo and ''Super Star Ultra'' for the 3DS.
!!The game is the TropeNamer for:
* BubblyClouds

!!The game also features the following tropes:
* {{Acrofatic}}: Not only is King Dedede fat, he moves very fast.
* BigBad: King Dedede.
* CutscenePowerToTheMax: Kirby in the ending inflates himself to be bigger than Dedede's castle so he can carry it and return the food inside to the Dream Landers.
* DualBoss: Lololo and Lalala in the second stage.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: You can't copy abilities, slide, or save progress after beating a stage. It just simple suck up and blow back certain attacks
* NintendoHard: The extra mode can be very punishing to unfamiliar players. Enemy damage is doubled and they move faster, some enemies have newer strategies, and the final boss moves much faster. New enemies have been added in place of some weaker enemies.
* OneHitKill: Something that is rare for a Kirby game: Touching the Gordos in Mt. Dedede instantly kills Kirby, regardless of how much HP he had.
* PowerUpFood: This is the game that originally featured "Superspicy Curry", a dish that gives Kirby the ability to spit fire for a limited time and has not been seen again until [[{{VideoGame/SuperSmashBros}} Super Smash Bros. Brawl]] and [[{{VideoGame/KirbyMassAttack}} Kirby Mass Attack]]. Mint Leaves (called Sweet Potatoes in Japan) were also another item that appeared in this game, allowing Kirby to shoot air puffs while airborne.
* PowerUpMotif: Two. One for the invincible candy, another for the Mint Leaf and Spicy Food.
* SmartBomb: The Mike item, which kills all enemies on screen. Unlike its ability counterpart in later games, it can only be used once.
* TheStinger: After beating the game the first time, you see King Dedede land in front of the code for for Extra Mode after getting tossed out his castle. He eventually recovers, throws a small tantrum and runs off. Once your beat the extra mode, he one more land in the same area (this time for the debug mode) but can't even bring himself to get up. Kirby eventually shake him awake but Dedede just sulks off in defeat.
* UnexpectedShmupLevel: The fight with the third boss, Kaboola, is this.
* VideogameSettings:
** GreenHillZone / TheLostWoods: Green Greens.
** BigBoosHaunt: Castle Lololo.
** PalmtreePanic: Float Islands (the first half).
** BubblyClouds: The second half of Float Islands and also the name of the fourth level.
** AllTheWorldsAreAStage: Mt. Dedede, which has elements of all four stages you have to go through in any order, before you can battle Dedede.
* WakeUpCallBoss: Whispy Woods in Extra Mode. He drops Gordos, which do three units of damage out of six. And while he does that, you need to look for apples to fire at him. He's arguably the hardest boss in Extra Mode.
