Cape Categories

For the flight at the beginning of the stage, divebomb at or just before the fourth pilliar in the background to get through the podoboos consistently.
The green block will not be active in All Castles or No Starworld, making the flight at the end slightly easier.

No Cape Categories

It is worth knowing both these damage boosts in case you make it to the castle without a reserve flower.
Stay at the front of the block snake when it's climbing the second time, then move to the back of it when it levels out in order to avoid the podoboo getting stuck in between the ceiling and the snake.

Reserve Fire Damage Boost

This strat is faster as Roy can be killed with fire.

P-speed Block Snake

Scrolling on the 4th step before the podoboos makes them very easily avoidable. Jumping off the block snake with p-speed is risky but not too difficult.
