Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe – Level 4-1 Energy Spheres
At one point you’ll see a small igloo-like tunnel protected by ice blocks. If you don’t already have the Fire ability, go back to the left and get it from the little red dragon inside the previous tunnel.
Once you have the Fire ability, head back and use it to melt the ice blocks, as well as the big stack of ice blocks inside. Drop down to find the first Sphere below you.
In the area where you’re being fired from barrel to barrel, at one point you’ll be faced up against three large spiky enemies, with the aim being to fire right through them.
Before you do that, fire straight upwards instead – there’s a hidden tunnel here leading to the next Sphere.
Right after you get the second Sphere, you’ll move on to another area with a load of barrels. Shoot through the first set of spiky enemies, then the second, then you’ll hit a yellow barrel, which automatically fires you up-right.
At this point you get to choose which way to fire each green barrel. Fire the first one down-right, then second one down-right, then the third one down-left to hit a yellow barrel right at the bottom of the screen.
This sends you to a secret door, which leads to an icy passageway. Keep looking up as you walk along this section and you’ll see the Sphere in a little alcove in the ceiling.
Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe – Level 4-2 Energy Spheres
At one point you’ll see a rope fuse protected by ice blocks. Get the Fire ability (there are red dragons wandering around) and use it to melt the blocks then light the fuse, then run to the right, climb inside the cannon and wait to get fired upwards.
This will take you to a secret area with a ninja enemy standing in front of a wall. Swallow him through the wall and steal his Ninja ability.
Stand next to the wall and throw a projectile at the switch (as seen in the screenshot) – this will let you get past the wall and reach the Sphere.
In the section with the giant spiked boots, right after you switch to the second one you’ll see some yellow blocks. Stomp on the middle one to reveal a hidden door.
Inside the door is a series of air currents that are generating and blowing four snowball enemies upwards. Use the boot to bounce along them then stomp through the yellow blocks to reach the Sphere.
Spheres 3 and 4
After you defeat Super Bonkers in the miniboss fight, steal his special Grand Hammer weapon. Keep going until you find a section with three large owl jack-in-the-boxes (as in the screenshot).
When one appears, quickly stand on it and use the Grand Hammer (you may have to rotate the stick to power it up). This will destroy all the blocks and spawn another star portal, leading to another Sphere Doomer fight.
Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe – Level 4-3 Energy Spheres
You’ll need the Spear ability for this one. In the section with the giant spiked balls, right before the door at the end there’s a switch inside a small alcove.
Hit this with your Spear and the platform next to you will raise a little, then drop down, revealing the first Sphere at the bottom of the screen.
In the section where you’re running up a series of slopes, you’ll see a glass gem surrounded by star blocks. Take the gem, which turns you invisible, then head to the left.
If you don’t have the Fire ability, take it from the little red dragon on the far left, then go up the ladder and use it to melt the ice blocks on the left. This will let you grab the gem again and carry it up the ladder with you.
At the top of the ladder, head right and pass through the glass blocks to find a bomb block. Hit it with fire to blow up the surrounding blocks, revealing the Sphere.
Right after the second Sphere you’ll travel up and pass through a door. Ditch any ability you may have and inhale the first enemy you see to steal his Cutter ability.
Head to the right until you see a platform suspended by a rope. This is tricky: you have to jump to the left-hand side of the platform (don’t stand under it, it’ll land on you), and fire your Cutter weapon to the left, then hold Right to make it bend in the air and cut the rope, giving you access to a secret door.
This door takes you to a room with a switch and a giant snowball above you. Throw the Cutter again to hit the switch from a distance, jump to the left to avoid the snowball, then float up to grab the Sphere.
For the last Sphere you need the Water ability. Near the end of the stage you’ll see a key, with a pink switch on the floor next to it.
Grab the key and carry it to the platform on the right, then turn left and fire a ball of water to hit the switch and raise the platform. This lets you carry the key to the locked door on the right, where the last Sphere is located.

In the second area, where you’re quickly sliding along the slopes, look for a yellow barrel.
Jump into it and you’ll be fired through the ceiling to a secret tunnel, where the first Sphere is located.
At one point you’ll see an enemy holding a key, and will end up racing against it to get through the stage. If you can reach the switch and get to the point where your paths cross over first, you can attack it and get the key.
Then you just have to drop down to the lower level and open the bottom door to get the Sphere.
Spheres 3 and 4
After you get the special Snow Bowl ability, you can bowl through the rest of the stage at high speed. At the end you’ll find a snowman’s body – bowl onto that to trigger an animation.
This makes another star portal appear, which leads to yet another fight against a Sphere Doomer.
Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe – Level 4-5 Energy Spheres
During the section where you have the little gun that fires cannonballs into the air, you ‘ll see a hidden door at the bottom of the screen when two large ice blocks move (as seen in the screenshot).
Inside the door are a load of steel blocks – you have to reach the door and destroy the blocks before the cannon runs out, in order to reach the Sphere.
After you get the first Sphere, get the Fire ability as soon as you can. In the next section, destroy the ice blocks in front of you to reveal a hidden door.
Inside this door you’ll find a bomb block. Destroying it will cause a chain reaction so you have to run right as quickly as possible (use the dashing Fire attack for a speed boost if necessary). If you manage it, you’ll reach the Sphere. If not, leave the door and re-enter to try again.
In the dark section where you have to carry the candle to see, you’ll come to a point where there are a bunch of ice blocks (as seen in the screenshot).
Throw the candle at the ice blocks to melt them and you’ll reveal a hidden door. Inside, inhale the snowman enemy and take his Ice power, then wait for a snowball to drop down from the right-hand side.
Freeze the snowball with your Ice power, then kick the ice block to the right to hit the switch and get the Sphere.
Right at the end of the stage you’ll get a key and be presented with two doors – one on the left, and one on the right. Open the one on the left.
This will lead you to the last Sphere, as well as a second key which you can then use to open the door on the right and finish the level.
