This guide on Power Gems is still a work in progress, however we thought we’d share what we have so far and update it as we go.

Once you return to the village as the frog, you’ll be able to start collecting Power Gems. These Gems are used to upgrade your gear at the Blacksmith, so its very important to collect as many as you possibly can.

 

Green Fields

#1

You’ll find the first Gem just west of Village of Lupia in Green Fields. Head to this frame…

Monster Boy Power Gem

… and as the frog, propel yourself upwards to the chest.

Monster Boy Power Gem

#2

To get to the frame that we want to be in, dash as the lion through the bricks underneath this section.

Monster Boy Power Gem

In this section, we want to remain as the lion and ground-pound down the following sides (you can sniff out the bomb locations as the pig, but we’ve done that for you in the images below)…

Monster Boy Power Gem Monster Boy Power Gem Monster Boy Power Gem

After you’ve ground-pounded a few times, you can sniff out the chest in the wall as the pig.

Monster Boy Power Gem

Ground-pound on the left side downwards and then walk into this next gap.

Monster Boy Power Gem

Transform into the snake and wiggle through the hole.

Monster Boy Power Gem

And you’ll be in the room with the Power Gem chest.

Misty Woods

#1

For this Power Gem, head to this frame…

Monster Boy Power Gem

In here, we want to sink down into the mud on the right. Do you see that little bit of mud on its own? Yeah, that one!

Monster Boy Power Gem

And when you sink all the way down, you’ll be in this room with the chest that contains the Power Gem.

Monster Boy Power Gem

 

Crystal Caves

#1

For the first Power Gem of the Crystal Caves, we want to be in this frame (also be aware that you’re going to have had to collect enough Super Tornado Truffles to fire 20)…

Monster Boy Power Gem

As the pig, ground-pound on the bulbous plant directly in the centre.

Monster Boy Power Gem

If you ground-pound it slightly to the side, you’ll shoot off in that direction. Like this…

Monster Boy Power Gem

If you’re beginning to lose your balance, you can lightly bounce on the plants in order to regain your composure. You won’t go flying as long as you don’t ground-pound. For the fourth and final bulb, ground-pound and the platform with the chest is in the top-right corner. Throw your 20 tornado spells at the chest and you’ll be rewarded with a Power Gem.

Monster Boy Power Gem

#2

This next one is super easy! You’ll want to head to this frame, ignoring the most rope up the top and simply falling down and to the room below…

Monster Boy Power Gem Monster Boy Power Gem

In this room, head to the bottom floor, jump over the bouncy block and open the chest.

Monster Boy Power Gem

 

The lost Temples

#1

The first Power Gem in this area is in this frame…

Monster Boy Power Gem

Stand up here and sniff out the chest that contains the first of the Power Gems in The lost Temples.

Monster Boy Power Gem

#2

The second Power Gem in The Lost Temples is when you are running away from the boulder, Indiana Jones Style.

Monster Boy Power Gem

The Gem is in the chest that you must open before the boulder gets you… or open it, die and then go down there again (that’s what I did).

#2

You’ll be able to get the third gems once you’ve been able to transform into a lion and have just got out of The Lost Temples dungeon. In this frame…

Monster Boy Power Gem

… charge to the right to break these blocks, and there is a secret chest hidden inside with the Power Gem in it.

Monster Boy Power Gem

#3

Head to this frame and flick the switch up the top before the water slides…

Monster Boy Power Gem Monster Boy Power Gem

Once you flick the switch, five little sparkling bits will show up that you will need to go through.

Monster Boy Power Gem

It can be quite difficult as the frog, but the aim is to basically ride the slides down and jump at the right times. You can also use the bouncy blocks and the bow down the bottom to have another try. I may have cheated and used the dragon to simply fly through them all, so if you can do that then do so. But regardless how you do it, once you’ve got all five of them, a chest will appear on the ground in the bottom-right corner with the Power Gem inside.

Monster Boy Power Gem

 

The Sewers

#1

For this one, we’re going to either need to be in this frame or be falling from the lighthouse…

Monster Boy Power Gem

If you’re making your way there from underneath, use the frog’s tongue in order to propel itself with the bows up until this one shoots you to the chest.

Monster Boy Power Gem

Transform into the pig (preferably the dragon if you can) and shoot ten fireballs at it to open it up and collect that Power Gem.

Monster Boy Power Gem

 

Pirate Shore

#1

In Pirate Shore, transform into the frog and swim downwards from here…

Monster Boy Power Gem Monster Boy Power Gem

Keep going down through the opening we had made when helping out the pirates.

Monster Boy Power Gem

Use your tongue to activate the bombs from a distance…

Monster Boy Power Gem

And as you keep swimming down and around, do you see the chest that’s hidden within the walls? That’s the one we’re looking for!

Monster Boy Power Gem

#2

Continuing on from the progress we had made from the previous Power Gem, we want to keep swimming down to this frame (remember to equip the Prince Tunic and/or anything else that shines light)…

Monster Boy Power Gem

Swim to the right and up a bit until you come around to the chest…

Monster Boy Power Gem

#3

For the third Power Gem here, head to this frame on the right side of the lighthouse…

Monster Boy Power Gem

Transform into the frog, make your way up the ladder, jump and use your tongue to take out the hummingbird thing (because it will get in the way).

Monster Boy Power Gem

Transform into the snake to climb up the moss and jump onto the moving platform. When it gets to the other side, dash through the blocks and make your way up.

Monster Boy Power Gem

When you get to the top of this bit, transform back into the frog and jump across the platforms to the top-right ledge where a chest that requires ten thunder spells in order to open it.

Skullrock Beach

#1

For this Power Gem, head underwater to this frame…

Monster Boy Power Gem

Swim to the bottom-left and head through, dashing you way past the bombs (you can also blow them up with magic projectiles or if you’ve upgraded your weapons to shoot stuff).
Monster Boy Power Gem

Dash through the blocks and open the chest to grab the Power Gem…

Monster Boy Power Gem

 

The Volcano

#1

For this Power Gem, you’ll need to be the lion. Upwards dash into the button and then do the same on each block above so that the boulder can continue to roll down.

Monster Boy Power Gem

Repeat this for the next two and you’ll be able to get to the chest.

Castle Prison

#1

The first Power Gem is in the stealth section in the Castle Prison. You’ll come across this in the main game, but if you skipped it, it’s just behind the penguin in this frame…

Monster Boy Power Gem

 

Village of Aeria

#1

This Power Gem requires you to be in this frame on the edge of the floating island…

Monster Boy Power Gem

Simply drop down to the small cliffside below and you’ll be able to sniff out the chest that contains the Power Gem (probably a good idea to take out the clouds first because they can be annoying).
Monster Boy Power Gem

 

Haunted Manor

#1

For the first Power Gem in Haunted Manor, head one frame south of this frame…

Monster Boy Power Gems

Assuming you’ve already cleared out the blocks on the left with the boulder, you’ll need to posses both tables and put them each in (or just above) the two sections of water below… Monster Boy Power Gems Monster Boy Power Gems

Now posses the spiked boulder to the far left and roll it all the way to the right, jumping on and off the tables to avoid falling into the water and breaking the blocks to get that Power Gem.

Monster Boy Power Gems

#2

In Haunted Manor, head to this frame, which is one frame to the right of where you get Pepelogoo for the first time…

Monster Boy Power Gems

To get to that frame, transform into the snake and crawl through a hidden snake hole to the right.
Monster Boy Power Gems

Make your way over to this frame and shine Pepelogoo’s light at the lightbulb flower.

Monster Boy Power Gems

This will get rid of the pipe at the right side of the room. Jump up from the right and let the wind current take you to the left side so that you can cling onto the moss there.

Monster Boy Power Gems

make your way up and around and jump at the right time through the platform on the right that is now pipe-free.

Monster Boy Power Gems

Cling onto the moss above you. and head over to the left.

Monster Boy Power Gems

Go into the wind current and jump right at the end so that you can cling onto the moss above.

Monster Boy Power Gems

Make your way up and around to the snake hole that you can squeeze through and…

Monster Boy Power Gems

Get that Power Gem!

Monster Boy Power Gems

 

#3

For this Power Gem, head to this frame with the conveyor belts…

Monster Boy Power Gem

Up the top, shine Pepelogoo’s beam at the lightbulb flower to drop the spiky ball.

Monster Boy Power Gem

Guide the ball down to the second row where you’ll need to change its direction when the spikes come down, only to make it go back to the left when they go back up.

Monster Boy Power Gem

When it drops to the third row, don’t change it’s direction and it’ll smash into the wall, revealing a chest.

Monster Boy Power Gem

To get to the chest, make your way to the right and down to the bottom where you can enter the conveyor belt.
Monster Boy Power Gem

Make your way up to the chest and grab the Power Gem.

Monster Boy Power Gem

 

Castle of Lupia

#1

The first Power Gem here is in this frame…

Monster Boy Power Gem

Fly up the middle section and watch out for the thing spitting down at you. Now open up the chest and there it is!
