Spray Cans, Mirrors, Extra Lives, & Calling Friends
To get different colors for your Kirby, you have to open little chests. They are gold and red. This little color thing that looks nothing like a spray can to me will come on out. It looks more like a battery. Whatever. Well, whatever color it is, that's your color. To actually change your color, click on your file.
Scroll down to Collection Room. There should be that little color thing there! Click on it, and you'll see your Kirby change color! Then click B, scroll back up to Start Game, and click One Player! When you get there, you'll be a different color!
To get mirror pieces, you need to defeat bosses. To get see if you've been to a place, click start after you've gotten a map piece. Then click Select until you come to a picture of your Kirby with a bunch of yellow and/or red boxes. If it is flashing yellow, you've been there and done everything you've needed to do there.
If it is just yellow, you have been there but have not finished doing everything you need to do. If it is red, you have not yet been there. If you want to see if there is a boss with a mirror piece in an area, go to the box place (in start). Then look at all the boxes.
If you see a box that says "Boss" and has a picture of a mirror piece...YOU NEED TO GET THERE TO GET THE MIRROR! Once you get all mirrors, you need to go inside the fixed mirror (yes go inside) and defeat all the bosses. First, though, under the mirror there will be a sword...not just any sword.. A FIRE SWORD!!! Walk into it and you'll pick it up. It's awesome. It can do almost anything. Bewarned...it is very hard to beat the bosses! Good luck!
Lives...goodness...everyone keeps asking me how to get lives. If your walking around and see a treasure box...OPEN IT FOR GOODNESS SAKES!!! Gees! There are some valuable things in there! You can get map pieces, life points, batteries to call your friends, colors, and extra lives. Extra lives look like little mental Kirbies. What?! They do! So OPEN THE STUPID CHESTS!!!
Another thing people always ask me is how to call your Kirby friends. Hit the R button. You'll see your Kirby holding a little phone and talking to someone. Your Kirby friends will appear, sometimes bringing life points or extra lives. You can also walk into them, and you will get extra lives. They will help you fight, but they can only follow you so far. Have fun! Hope all this helps! :D
