Kirby and the Forgotten Land - Downtown Grassland walkthrough

The Downtown Grassland stage of Kirby and the Forgotten Land has three hidden Waddle Dees to find and three unique missions to complete.

Downtown Grassland is the first stage in Kirby and the Forgotten Land and contains three hidden Waddle Dees and easy missions like breaking the building’s shutter, which can be done using Mouthful Mode to turn Kirby into a vending machine. To ensure you don’t miss anything, here’s what you’re going to need to keep an eye out for as you work your way through Downtown Grassland.

The first tulip is located right at the beginning of Downtown Grassland on a tree stump.

The first red tulip you’re going to want to interact with to complete the “make 5 tulips bloom” mission is located on a tree stump right at the starting area. Interact with it by walking over it to make the flower bloom.

Keep an eye out for a switch on the right side of the map.

Next, head straight and keep an eye out for a switch on the right-hand side. Activate that switch and you’ll open up an area with a piece of cake for Kirby to eat. If you go left while in this area with the cake slice, you’ll wind your way through a hidden passage. 

Head left inside the passage opened by the switch, as seen in this image with Kirby's shadow as he moves through the tunnel.

At the end of this passage, you’ll find the second tulip.

At the end of this passage, you'll find the next tulip to make bloom.

To complete the mission “break the building’s shutter” you’re going to want to use Mouthful Mode to inhale a vending machine. With Kirby in Vending Mouth mode, you can spit out cans of soda at enemies. You can also spit these soda cans to break open the building’s shutter.

To complete the mission that tasks you with breaking the building's shutter, you'll need to use Mouthful Mode and turn Kirby into a vending machine.

After doing this, climb the ladder at the back up to the top to find a collectible figure.

After breaking the building's shutter, climb to the top of the building to find a collectible figure.

In the area with cannonballs, inhale a bomb-throwing enemy to have Kirby switch to the Bomb Copy Ability. After that, throw bombs at the boxes underneath the canons to ensure you don’t get hit by any cannonballs as you proceed forward.

To avoid taking damage from these canons, use the Bomb Copy Ability to toss bombs at the boxes underneath the canons and drop them down.

Also, before you proceed through the canon area as a whole, remember to look to your left to find another tulip on top of a barrel.

Before heading through the canon area, look to your left to find another red tulip perched on top of a barrel.

After the canon ball area, there will be a few cones and you’ll want to use Mouthful Mode again to inhale one of these cones.

Inhale one of the cones to turn Kirby into Cone Mouth.

With Kirby using Cone Mouth, you’ll be able to use a downward spike attack to break open special areas on the ground and broken pipes.

Using Cone Mouth, press B to do a downward spike attack and break open cracked areas on the ground.

To complete the “ride the spewing water up to the balcony mission” you’re going to want to look for the pipe as seen in the image above, then use your downward spike attack to break the pipe.

Use the same downward spike attack to break the pipe. 

Once you’re on the balcony, keep going until you see a stack of silver boxes. Use your downwards pike attack to break these boxes and uncover a hidden collectible figure.

Once you're on the balcony, head to the end and look for stacked silver boxes. Use your downward spike attack to break these boxes and reveal a hidden collectible figure.

The next area has a small mini-boss fight. For this, we recommend using the Bomb Copy Ability if able.

The next area has a mini-boss, which we recommend using the Bomb Copy Ability against.

When you reach the next area you’ll want to head right and climb the ladder up to the top.

In the next area, head right and climb to the top of the building for another Mouthful Mode opportunity.

There, you’ll be able to use Mouthful Mode again to reveal one of the stage's hidden Waddle Dees.

Using Mouthful Mode, you'll be able to reveal one of the stage's hidden Waddle Dees.

To find the next hidden Waddle Dee, you’re going to want to head left to find another yellow ladder leading to the top of a building. Climb this, then inhale the sword enemy.  If you already have a Copy Ability equipped, press and hold Y to drop it to allow you to equip the Sword Copy Ability. With this equipped, cut the vine holding up a cone on the right.

Head to the building on the left and climb to the top. Inhale the enemy for the Sword Copy Ability, then break the vine holding the cone and drop it to the ground.

Inhale the cone, then use your downward spike attack to eliminate the large turtle foe (the game calls this enemy a Tortorner). In doing so, you’ll reveal another hidden Waddle Dee. Heading straight, you’ll climb up a set of steps. As you’re doing this, keep an eye out for the area shown in the image below.

When you encounter this enemy Buffahorn, tempt it into running past you. 

Here, you’re going to want to let the Buffahorn enemy run past you, then with the area clear, head inside to find the next red tulip.

After the Buffahorn runs past you, you'll be able to reach the next tulip to make bloom.

When you reach the top you’ll encounter an extremely large turtle foe similar to the other Tortorner you encountered. The game calls this enemy a "Tortuilding" as its shell is comprised of an entire building. Use the areas of cover where you can dip down underground, allowing the Tortorner's mouth to pass above you.

Be patient here and use areas of cover to avoid taking damage.

At the end, the Tortorner will break open a pipe which you can break and ride the water spout up to the top. From there, you can use your downward spike attack again to get rid of the Tortorner.

Use your downward spike attack to defeat this enemy and end the Downtown Grassland stage.

After you use your downward spike attack to defeat the Tortorner, the Downtown Grassland stage will come to an end.


We hope this walkthrough has helped you complete the Downtown Grassland stage of Kirby and the Forgotten Land with all hidden Waddle Dees found, and all missions completed.
