|“||You got a Sun Stone!
The power of the sun lies within! Find as many as you can, and open up the pathway to the boss!
— Flavor text after the first Sun Stone is collected
A Sun Stone is a floating blue gemstone surrounded by a gold floral crest that acts as a collectible in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. Sun Stones emanate the power of the sun and are scattered around the kingdom of Floralia. Kirby must collect them to grow the Dreamstalk from one floating island to the next. Collecting a certain amount of Sun Stones is required to face the boss in each level, and collecting all of the stones in the main stages of each level is required to open that level's EX stage. After they are collected, Sun Stones will appear grayed-out if they are revisited in the stage. Collecting them again yields Kirby 10 Point Stars.
There are 100 total Sun Stones in the game, and collecting them all rewards Kirby with the Queen Sectonia Keychain. There are also five Grand Sun Stones, obtained from each of the first five bosses, which are what drive the Dreamstalk's growth to each subsequent level.
Sun Stone Distribution
Each stage contains anywhere from 1 to 4 Sun Stones. Grand Sun Stones, which are found in Boss Stages, are not counted here.
For information on how to obtain each stone, see the individual stage pages for each level in Kirby: Triple Deluxe.
|Level/Stage||Stage 1||Stage 2||Stage 3||Stage 4||Stage 5||Stage EX||Stage EX 2||Total|
Grand Total: 100
- It is suggested in an official Miiverse post that the Sun Stones were created by "someone who dislikes the sun" (presumably Queen Sectonia) to trap the Sun's energy, and thus cause the plants in Floralia (specifically the Dreamstalk) to stop growing.
