There are three hidden Super Gems in every level. Finding them can be challenging, so learn where to look to find all of them in the complete list of locations below.

    • Super Gem #3: During the final slide section, hold left on the D-Pad to grab the gem. It’s on the wider slide section.

  • Stumper Sneakaround
    • Super Gem #1: After crossing the first bridge, grab the key from the root and drop down into the cave below with the locked door.
    • Super Gem #2: On top of the spiked stumpers. Climb the ladder near the last P Switch and step onto the stumpers to get it.
    • Super Gem #3: After lowering the final bridge, drop down into the area below. There’s a moving root you can grab.
    • Bonus Objective: To defeat all three Piranha Creepers, you can drop down on their heads, or use turnips from roots.

    • Super Gem #3: Rounding the next corner, shoot the POW block to reveal a hidden gem.
