This Kirby Star Allies Guide will guide you through finding each and every one of the picture pieces in the game so that you can have all of them in your collection.
Kirby Star Allies Special Picture Pieces
All of these pieces are arranged according to the world that they are found in. They are also put in chronological order so that you can go through this guide in one go and do not have to go back and forth between the levels in order to get the special picture pieces.
Before we begin this Kirby Star Allies Special Picture Pieces Guide, we would advise players to try and search for these pieces themselves. That is infinitely more rewarding and finding them is not that hard in the first place. You can always refer back if you fail to locate a certain piece.
Special Picture Pieces Locations
Here are all of the locations for Special Picture Pieces arranged by world and level.
In the fourth section of Green Gardens, beat Mr. Frosty and drop down the set of ladders. Use the ice attack to destroy the burning logs and get the piece. After that, use the ice attacks on the two enemies with the fire shields towards the end of the fourth area of Donut Dome to unlock the area to another piece.
Use a fire attack to light the cannons in Honey Hill. Then climb into the cannons with three of your friends (the rest will happen automatically).
