From WiKirby, your independent source of Kirby knowledge.
Royal Road - Stage 1 is the first stage in Royal Road. There are three Sun Stones and 4 Keychains in this stage. The Gold Keychain is one depicting Galacta Knight.
The stage begins with Kirby outside of the palace. He has to make his way to the Warp Star, which will allow him to bust through the main gate.
Inside the castle, Kirby must contend with the Sectra minions, which are bug versions of standard enemies. A couple of them pilot a Sectra Tank, which will prove a hassle.
The next area has Kirby battling Gigant Edge in a windy tunnel. Defeating it yields the way forward, but there seems to be something hidden here.
From there, a series of Tilt Cannons can be used to progress further. From there, Kirby will have to contend with the Sectra Tank again. The stage exit can be found at the end of this hall.
Sun Stone & Gold Keychain Guide
- Sun Stone 1 - In the first Sectra Tank section, this stone can be found in an underground chamber inside a barrel, guarded by a Moonja.
- Sun Stone 2 - In the Tilt Cannon section, a side door can be found by firing into the ceiling. In here, Kirby has to solve a tilt weight puzzle to get this stone.
- Sun Stone 3 - In the second Sectra Tank section, a Bomb Block can be found in the floor which will drop the tank into a pit before it can run over a treasure chest up ahead. Kirby can then access the chest to get this stone.
- Gold Keychain - After getting the third Sun Stone, this keychain can be found if Kirby ventures further left.
