Kirby and the Forgotten Land: Where to Find All Blueprints & Locations
Each Copy Ability you’ll find in Kirby and the Forgotten Land can be upgraded at Waddle Dee’s Weapon Shop. For the most part, each ability has two upgrades, although the Crash and Sleep abilities only have one. If you're here, you're wondering where to find all of the blueprint locations in the game.
Including the two spoiler-y ones you receive after finishing Kirby and the Forgotten Land, there are 24 hidden blueprints to find throughout the 6 worlds of Kirby and the Forgotten Land.
Where to Find Every Blueprint in Kirby and the Forgotten Land
Each Blueprint gives you the option to spend Star Coins and Rare Stones on a more powerful upgrade for one of Kirby’s abilities. We have listed them in order of when you will find them progressing through each level, detailing their exact locations.
If you feel like you’ve missed any Blueprints along your journey, you can stop by Wise Waddle Dee near the World Map star in Waddle Dee town and he will let you know where to find them.
Chakram Cutter and Volcano Fire Blueprint Locations
After you beat Gorimondo, the first boss of World 1, the Weapons Shop will unlock in Waddle Dee Town. When you first enter the shop, the Waddle Dee in charge will award you with the Chakram Cutter and Volcano Fire Blueprints.
Chain Bomb Blueprint Location

Clutter Needle Blueprint Location
- Location: Stage 2-3.
The Blueprint for the first evolution of the needle is found in Scale the Cement Summit in Everbay Coast. As you climb the tower, look for a lone bomb block sitting atop a large metal container. Hitting it will reveal the Copy Ability upgrade for the Clutter Needle.

At the end of The Wondaria Dream Parade, there is a section where you must become Water Balloon Mouth Kirby.

Before you cross the gap to get the caged buddy, blast another fairground car in the same spot and another hidden wall will crumble, revealing the Fleur Tornado Blueprint.

This one is a nice reprieve from the puzzle solving. You will be awarded the Pencil Drill Blueprint by defeating Clawroline at the end of Wonderia Remains.

Dragon Fire Blueprint Location
- Location: Stage 4-3.
The first second-level evolution for your Copy Abilities in Kirby and the Forgotten Land, you’ll be able to find is the Dragon Fire Blueprint. This deadly upgrade to the Volcano Fire ability will cost a little more to unlock, but it’s well worth seeking out.
In the World 4 level Windy, Freeing Seas you can find it hidden in a chest. A lift that is slightly out of the way in the area where you can go Mouthful Mode. Inhale the lift and move all the way to the right side of the screen. You will see the chest and be able to reach it by spitting out the lift while at maximum height.

Buzz-Saw Cutter Blueprint Location
- Location: Stage 5-2.
The Buzz-Saw upgrade to the Cutter Copy Ability is well hidden in Searching the Oasis. In the second half of the level, you will be ascending through an area full of tall plants and Poison Croakoms creating unsafe patches of ground. Pay attention as you climb, and you will eventually see a broken balcony on your left. Walk towards the gap and you will see a platform below where the chest containing the Blueprint sits.
Wild Hammer Blueprint Location
- Location: Stage 5-3.
When you fight Wild Bonkers in World 5’s return to Alivel Mall, you will see the awe-inspiring power of the Wild Hammer on display. After he is defeated, the mini-boss will drop a Hammer pick-up.

- Location: Stage 5-4.
At the start of the next level, Moonlight Canyon, you are climbing a rock formation by navigating disappearing blocks.

The one for Deep Sleep is found near the secret door area for the third Hidden Waddle Dee in Burning, Churning Power Plant. From the door, you can see a coin hidden behind a grate in the foreground to the left. Float up here to find a secret tunnel leading you to the Deep Sleep Blueprint.
