[LATEST UPDATE: June 14th – Added Rare Stickers for Area 3, Area 4, Area 5 & Area 6.]


Area 1: Patched Plains

  • Stage 1:
    • Rare Sticker: Defeat the robo-tree mini-boss in the first stage instead of escaping through the pipe to gain a sticker when it retreats.
  • Stage 2:
    • Rare Sticker: After grabbing the Robobot Armor and entering the area with firing cannons in the background, grab a Sword Copy Ability to cut through the wooden planks. When you find two wooden planks stacked on top of each other, cut both down to reach the Rare Sticker to the left.
  • Stage 3:
    • Rare Sticker: Enter the alternate Star Door through the pipe blocked with a stone and snatch the battery. Activate the teleporter ahead and enter the bonus room. Above the Code Cube, there’s another tiny pipe near the ceiling. Fly into it, grab the Robobot Armor and a Fire Copy Ability. Ahead, at a connection between two train cars, jump up and break the large Metal Block above. Ride the wind left to get the sticker.
  • Stage 4:
    • Rare Sticker: This one can be tricky. In the large room filled with mesh climb-able surface suspended over spikes, look near the ceiling of the chamber with a spinning Fire enemy and a flying half-robot. This is just beneath another hallway of spikes. There’s a small Metal Block that’s hard to see right above the Fire enemy on the platform — smash the block to reveal a Rare Sticker.
  • Stage 6 EX:
    • Rare Sticker: At the area with the rotating bridge (with included stairs) turn the bridge until the stairs are facing right. Use the Robobot Armor with the Bomb Copy Ability to launch multiple bombs at the Star Switch. Launch three or four, then wait near the door above. When it opens, move right and grab your Rare Sticker prize.

Area 2: Resolution Road

  • Stage 1:
    • Rare Sticker: Deliver the Battery to the Teleporter and use ESP to open the metal door to the Code Cube. Continue to move right to find a Robobot Armor! Jump in, backtrack left and unscrew the two giant spots to get at this area’s first rare sticker.
  • Stage 2:
    • Rare Sticker: Reaching the rooftops section of the Jet Mode level, you’ll pass through a building and see the Rare Sticker blocked by a Bomb Block and two Metal Blocks. To shoot the Bomb Block, hold down the attack button. Charged attacks shoot backwards!
  • Stage 3:
    • Rare Sticker: Get a Wheel Copy Ability and ride down the third room. Eventually you’ll reach a climb-able mesh. Don’t climb up yet! Look to the right — there are Star Blocks and a Kirby-sized passage. Drive through the blocks to find a sticker in the alcove.
  • Stage 4:
    • Rare Sticker: In the third room of the stage (second casino room) — stop at the exit Star Door and look left. Hit the Bomb Block to reveal a pipe. Exit through the background Star Door, then continue past the  spiked dice until you reach a Treasure Chest containing this sticker.
  • Stage EX:
    • Rare Sticker: When Kirby gains the remote control, keep both Kirby Bots alive and lead the second bot to a Star Switch to drop a treasure chest with this sticker.

Area 3: Overload Ocean

  • Stage 1:
    • Rare Sticker: Near the end, you’ll find a Large Metal Block and a Small Metal Block. Smash them both with the Robobot Armor to discover a Robobot Dock and a passage into the water below. Dock and swim into the pipe on the left, leading to the background. Swim out of the water and smash the large crate.
  • Stage 2:
    • Rare Sticker: At the end of the stage you’ll reach a dock with an upper path and a lower path. Switch to the background with the Wheel Mode Robobot and continue moving right until you find a Treasure Chest containing this sticker.
  • Stage 3:
    • Rare Sticker: Jump into the Robobot Armor and activate the screw to move the platform into the foreground. Deliver the large Block to the second platform and push it into the background with the screw. Use the nearby 3D Star to enter the background, then move the Block to the left corner. Now you’ll be able to jump into an alcove and smash the Metal Blocks to reveal a hidden Rare Sticker.
  • Stage 4:
    • Rare Sticker: In the second Code Cube Bonus Room, destroy the burning Blocks in the lower left corner of the square around the Battery.
  • Stage 5:
    • Rare Sticker: Defeat the mid-boss and gain his Hammer Copy Ability. Backtrack left and hit the two hammer spots to reach a treasure chest with his sticker.
  • Stage 7 EX:
    • Rare Sticker: This one is easy. You’ll reach a Star Door sitting on a small ship on the water. Swim into the water beneath the tiny boat to find this Rare Sticker.

Area 4: Gigabyte Grounds

  • Stage 1:
    • Rare Sticker: This one is hard to miss. In the room with the rolling spiked cylinders, you’ll enter a pipe and swap to the background plane. Float up and left to check the corner above.
  • Stage 2:
    • Rare Sticker: After the mid-boss, enter the Bonus Room with the Poison Smog ability. Destroy the blocks covering the upper-right corner of the Bonus Room, then fly up there and grab the Robobot Armor. Leaving, backtrack left and punch the tracked vehicle to clear the path to a 3D Star. Now that you’re in the background, move left until you discover a Treasure Chest containing this sticker.
  • Stage 3:
    • Rare Sticker: Late in the stage, you’ll reach an area with a conveyor belt in the background and a bone-headed enemy tossing fibulas at Kirby. Grab a Mirror Copy Ability from one of the foreground enemies and reflect the bone back at the skull-guy. That activates the Star Switch, dropping the Treasure Chest onto the conveyor belt, giving Kirby easy access to the sticker inside.
  • Stage 4:
    • Rare Sticker: In the maze, at the second junction, take the lower path and ride the 3D Star. Ahead, you’ll spot the Rare Sticker in the background. Shoot through the Metal Blocks, hit the Bomb Block, and quickly use the 3D Star to grab the sticker before it scrolls off-screen.
  • Stage 5:
    • Rare Sticker: Get the Robobot Armor by keeping the Kirby-bot alive through the remote control gauntlet and using ESP in the Bonus Room. Near the end of the stage, you’ll be able to destroy wood planks — about halfway down the shaft, jump up from below to gain this sticker.
  • Stage 7 EX:
    • Rare Sticker: In the path with poison fog being blown by wind turbines, you’ll reach one square with a hollow center and a Star Door. Enter through the right side, use the pipe to reach the door itself. In the Bonus Room, defeat the boss and grab his Hammer power to break the wall where this sticker is located.

Area 5: Rhythm Route

  • Stage 1:
    • Rare Sticker: This is sticker is found right after the second Code Cube. Swapping back to the background, float above the three separated road sign platforms to spot the gold collectible.
  • Stage 2:
    • Rare Sticker: Get the Robobot Armor by entering the left, then upper right door in the maze. Later, grab a Spark Mode power-up when you reach the room with the screws. Spark the wires and move the platforms to the background or foreground to reach a Bonus Room. Do the same thing in the Bonus Room — keep the spark going by turning the circle in the center with the screw.
  • Stage 3:
    • Rare Sticker: In the first room, gain the Robobot Armor and Wheel Mode. On the raised ramp, double-jump to a floating platform and switch from foreground then background. Smash the Metal Blocks on the top to get this sticker.
  • Stage 4:
    • Rare Sticker: Using Wheel Mode with the Robobot Armor, jump onto the floating platforms above the ramp going down. Swap planes to reach a stack of Metal Blocks at the end of the upper path. Smash the Blocks to find the sticker.
  • Stage 5:
    • Rare Sticker: At the end of the train, grab the Robobot Armor. Part of the way across, smash the blocks on a platform near the ceiling to reveal with Rare Sticker.
  • Stage 7 EX:
    • Rare Sticker: Found in the room with the giant billiard balls and horizontal scrolling. Eventually you’ll reach a ladder — look underneath the platform to find the sticker.

Area 6: Access Ark

  • Stage 1:
    • Rare Sticker: In the pipe maze, only enter the lowest pipes and you’ll reach a secluded alcove with the gold Rare Sticker.
  • Stage 2:
    • Rare Sticker: In the first gondola room, float near the ceiling to the left of the Star Door exit. There’s a narrow passage that leads to this sticker.
  • Stage 3:
    • Rare Sticker: At the end of the stage, crank the catapult only two degrees backwards, then cut the chain. The ball will drop into the Gold Blocks and clear the way down to a Treasure Chest containing a Rare Sticker.
  • Stage 4:
    • Rare Sticker: Defeat Security Force (Mid-Boss) and stop at the exit door. Fly up to find a new platform and a 3D Star that delivers Kirby to a Wheel. Grab it and drive all the way back to the start of the room. Through a wall (and a Bomb Block) you’ll find a Rare Sticker.
  • Stage 5:
    • Rare Sticker: Near the end of the stage, you’ll hop into a cannon that fires you into two more cannons. Don’t enter the mirror in the center of the four squares — instead float to the top of the screen and press Up at the yellow/blue star. At the third cannon, continue to move left to discover a very secret Rare Sticker.
  • Stage 7 EX:
    • Rare Sticker: In the underwater section of the stage, you’ll switch to the background plane. Continue moving right — just past one of the eel nests, you’ll see a single block missing from the ceiling. Swim in there to discover a hidden Rare Sticker.
  • Stage 8 EX:
    • Rare Sticker: At the end of the stage, jump and press up near the moon in the upper-right corner of the Gameboy screen. You’ll enter an old-school Kirby level with lots of treats and a super-secret Rare Sticker.
