Sand Canyon - Stage 5
The stage begins on a high rocky walkway, as Kirby must contend with some Dogon. Rick can be found in a side-chamber under the main path. The road then leads to a tunnel full of spiked blocks that repeatedly fall.
The door leads to a long fall, where some caches can be accessed. One of them however, with loads of goodies in it, requires the Ice ability to open. There are some Chillies at the bottom, but Kirby alone still cannot reach the blocks without help.
The door leads to an auto-scrolling section in a tunnel. Kirby will have to contend with boulders and Galbos in here. Along the way, a side-chamber can be accessed which holds ChuChu. At the end, a number of Nidoo will make things rather annoying.
The next area is a carved chamber leading upward. A side-door can be used to find a room full of ability-providing enemies. The Burning and Clean abilities in particular can be used to open up a cache of Star Blocks in the main chamber. Further up, some Sir Kibbles can be found, completing the set. The door to the next area is guarded at the top by Dekabu.
The door leads to another chamber set leading upward. If ChuChu is with Kirby, she'll be able to show off her ceiling-clinging skills here in order to move forward. The stage exit lies at the top, out in the open air.
In the final room, Nyupun the octopus is waiting. If Kirby brought ChuChu, Nyupun will give out a Heart Star.
