Green Grounds - Stage 10
This stage is the first water stage in the game. Unlike other games in the Kirby series, Kirby can drown if he runs out of air. Having more Kirbys on the team will extend his air meter, and collecting air bubbles which come from clams will replenish it.
The level starts above ground, but the Kirbys will soon come across a destroyable block which will spawn a whirlpool when destroyed, sucking all the Kirbys in. The rest of the stage takes place almost entirely underwater. The area is filled with winding tunnels and water currents, with the occasional Heave-Ho Block obstructing the Kirbys' path. Further in, the Kirbys have to contend with the Mid-Boss Tortletummy. From there, the stage exit can be found after leaving the waterways.
|Medal locations in Green Grounds - Stage 10|
|Medal||Daroach's hint||How to reach|
|When you press a switch with an apple on it, you'll see lots of green apples appear. If you can grab all of those apples, you'll get some kind of reward.||A Fruit Switch needs to be hit to make a formation of green apples appear. Eating all of these apples before they disappear will cause a Jumbo Candy to appear. This candy can be used to bust through a metal block barrier up ahead, which contains the Rainbow Medal.|
|When underwater, you can crush metal blocks by pushing a movable block on top of them. There's one watery chamber where you can use this trick twice to expose a downward passage. Go down it as far as you can. I've been down there, and I seem to recall seeing a gold gleam.||After pushing the Heave-Ho Block down the Metal Block chute, this medal can be found in a cracked section of the wall beneath the door to the next area.|
|You may have realized that you can pop open shells to find air bubbles. But did you know that some hold items as well? I'm sure that one of them contains a medal!||The second-to-last in a series of shells can be opened to reveal this medal.|
|You'll find portals inside some shells when swimming. One of those portals goes to a chamber with a giant Jellifrizz. Break it down completely to reveal the return portal. Oh, and don't forget to take the medal!||The third-to-last in the shell series holds a side-door which leads to a room with a large Jellifrizz inside. The medal can be found in the middle shell in this room.|
|There's one shell found on this island that's so HUGE that you'll need a big crew to crack it open. I couldn't do it, not even with all my friends. I bet there's a chest inside of it. Which means there must be a key somewhere too.||Past the shells, a side-door can be found in a cracked ceiling section. In there, a Key can be grabbed, which needs to be safely carried past the fight with Tortletummy. In the area past, a giant shell can be opened to reveal the chest, which holds the medal inside.|
