Gourmet Race (also known as "Fountain of Dreams" and "Paint Panic") is a frequently ripped track from the Kirby series and a minor meme on the SiIvaGunner channel.


"Gourmet Race" is a track composed by Kirby series' long time composer by Jun Ishikawa and first used in Kirby Super Star in the mini-game "Gourmet Race"[1]. It appeared in this mode's first and third levels, Pumpkin Grand and Onion Garden, while the second one, Corn Hall, features another track that is usually omitted. It is an upbeat ska piece playing while Kirby and King Dedede compete in the titular event, a mix between a race and an "all-you-can-eat" competition.

This track has been reused in numerous other Kirby games, usually for mini-games or Dedede related levels, as well as the Super Smash Bros. series, being the theme of Dream Land in the original one and of Fountain of Dreams in Super Smash Bros. Melee in an orchestral rendition. These appearances grandly contributed to the mainstream popularity of the song, Nightmare in Dream Land even paying homage to Melee by using a chiptune version of the orchestral rendition for the fight against King Dedede on the Fountain of Dreams. The track is usually associated with trumpets with Dedede and flutes with Kirby himself.

There are currently 20 high quality rips of "Gourmet Race" on the channel, 5 of them being the original rendition from Kirby Super Star, 4 of them being the remix from the Kirby Super Star Ultra remake, 4 of them being the remix from Super Smash Bros., 1 of them being the remix from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, and the last 6 being the versions from Nightmare in Dream Land, Super Smash Bros. Melee (both of them being titled as "Fountain of Dreams"), Canvas Curse ("Paint Panic"), Dream Land 3 ("Sand Canyon 2"), Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and finally the special kirbtunes medley Gourmet Race Fusion Collab.

Notably, several "Gourmet Race" rips have the same joke.

Similarly to "Mt. Dedede", the track is commonly associated with the King Dedede Army comment meme.
