From WiKirby, your independent source of Kirby knowledge.
Sandy Canyon - Stage 3 is a stage in Sandy Canyon, from Kirby Mass Attack. 5 Kirbys are needed to enter the stage. This stage has a Rainbow Bubble at the end of it.
The stage begins outside a grotto, which contains a Melody Switch lock. Solving the switch combination reveals a door into some ruins.
Inside the ruins, the Kirbys will need to pull on chains to lower and raise platforms.
In the next room, the Kirbys will have to watch out for falling Grindarrs. Then they will deal with a couple of Big Stactuses.
The ruins continue past more Grindarrs until eventually leading back outside. The path continues back into the ruins past more Grindarrs to reach a doorway.
Before reaching the stage exit, the Kirbys will have to wrestle with Bigger Stactus. From there, the Rainbow Bubble can be popped to reach the next set of stages.
The following are the locations of each medal in Sandy Canyon - Stage 3, including Daroach's hints and more details where applicable.
|Medal locations in Sandy Canyon - Stage 3
||How to reach
|There's a Big Stactus lounging on top of a floor made of metal blocks somewhere. A Big Stactus can make for a great battering ram, if you defeat it. They can summon a storm of thorns, so you'll have to scatter yourselves if that happens!
||A Big Stactus sits atop a Metal Block formation with the medal inside. The Kirbys will have to defeat the Big Stactus to break through.
|Have you seen the teeth-gritting Grindarrs that fall from ceilings? Some are invulnerable to attack, but others can be broken. All Grindarrs hang from chains, and I bet you could pull that chain if you defeat its Grindarr. You'd need a lot of Kirbys to pull on one of those chains, though.
||A fragile Grindarr can be broken by throwing Kirbys at it. Doing so reveals a chain which can be pulled to reveal the medal on a grate.
|The Grindarrs that try to squash you flat must be there for a good reason. There are two of them trying to keep intruders from going through a door. Seems suspicious to me.
||A side-door can be found guarded by two Grindarrs. From there, the Kirbys will need to launch from cannon to cannon, finding the Rainbow Medal on wings flying in a circle. The Kirbys will need to time their launch to get the medal as it swoops by.
|There's a long series of Grindarrs installed not far from the end of one of the stages. They're right next to a grip ring that requires 10 Kirbys to pull it. That's the key to getting a medal.
||A chain can be yanked between some Grindarrs, though it requires all 10 Kirbys to pull down. Doing so will raise a medal into the Kirbys' reach.
|There's a long series of Grindarrs, all side by side, trying to flatten anyone who runs past them. Next to them is one of those skull keys that warps you to the Skullys. And I'm sure those Skullys have what we're looking for.
||Past the last set of Grindarrs, a Bomb Block barrier needs to be broken to allow access to a Skull Key. Taking this key, the Kirbys will need to defeat the Skull Gang to get their treasure, and the medal inside.
