Paletto Polis is the twelfth stage in Kirby: Canvas Curse. It is Neo Greo's final stage, coming after Dreamy Darkness and before Cold Course.

General Information

Paletto Polis is a cartoonish city that was created when Drawcia turned Dream Land into a world of paint. The level, although only consisting of a few rooms, is one of the most mischievous and confusing levels in the game. The first part of the level involves having Kirby ride green, sticky platforms as an army of Shotzos take aim at him. The paintbrush can easily shield Kirby however. The second and most time-consuming part of Paletto Polis involves solving a huge puzzle to unlock the three colored barriers that are blocking Kirby's way to the next door. The third part of Paletto Polis takes place in a scrolling passage that can crush Kirby if the magic paintbrush cannot clear the walls of bomb blocks in time or defeat the enemies.

It is comparable to Tiny Town.

Ice Cream Island is the second level in Kirby's Adventure and Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land. It is a sun-drenched, idyllic, tropical paradise. Common aquatic foes such as Glunks and Blippers make their homes here.

When played with the Old School music option on, Paletto Polis' theme changes to Grape Garden's theme from Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land.


  • Paletto Polis' name in Japanese is "Palette Polis." It is unclear if this minor name change is stylistic or a mistranslation, as the Japanese word used for palette is パレット (paretto).
