Green Grounds - Stage 2
This stage is set in a jungle littered with Spire Vines which the Kirbys can topple by latching onto them, sometimes allowing them to destroy metal blocks or defeat Puku Snoozroots. Soon after beginning the stage, the Kirbys will encounter the first Oohroo of the game. The Oohroo guards several bananas, and past him lie three Melody Switches which the Kirbys must push in a certain order to proceed. Shortly after this, the Kirbys will find a Recovery Ring followed by various enemies such as Oohroo, another Puku Snoozroot and a Big Beanbon. A door can be found further to the right.
The second area of the stage forces the Kirbys to contend with more of the same enemies, although some of them now walk atop semisolid platforms high above the Kirbys' heads. Eventually, the puffball parade will find a key guarded by two aggressive Oohroo. The Kirbys will then pummel a large orange Spire Vine and go rolling until they hit a wall. If they have the key on them at this time, they can unlock a treasure chest to reveal a medal. The stage exit lies just beyond.
An alternate path can be accessed if the Kirbys successfully smash through a set of metal blocks with a Spire Vine and enter the door that the blocks covered. In this secret room, the Kirbys will be met with a couple of Tappys and will set off a Spire Vine chain reaction that leads to another medal. After obtaining the medal, the Kirbys will enter another door that brings them back to the regular path.
The following are the locations of each medal in Green Grounds - Stage 2, including Daroach's hints and more details where applicable.
|Medal locations in Green Grounds - Stage 2|
|Medal||Daroach's hint||How to reach|
|You know those Spire Vines that grow tall, then shrink? Well, look for the purple Spire Vines. There's one around here that, if you topple it when it's shorter, will smash through to a medal.||The Rainbow Medal can be accessed by weighing down one of the Spire Vines while it is short to bust through a metal block.|
|You might be tempted to topple those tall Spire Vines while standing on their left side, right? Keep in mind that, if you go over Spire Vines, you can then topple them from the other side too.||The second medal can be obtained in the side chamber past the Tappys, then at the end of a chain of Spire Vines.|
|There's an especially massive red plant somewhere. It'd probably boulder through all sorts of things if you could get it rolling. I bet you'd need five Kirbys or so to do something like that. There's supposed to be a key you'll pass before you see it. I'd grab it before you get that plant rolling.||The last medal is inside a Treasure Chest, which can be unlocked using a Key guarded by Oohroos. To access the chest, the Kirbys must ride the plant ball down the hill and bust through the metal block barrier.|
