Howdy all. So I've seen the following numbers passed around and have even incorporated them into my Unlockable Guide. These are based on the color of the tile when you first access the map:

Starting/Green Areas: 1200 KOs, 100 Damage Taken
Yellow/Purple/Orange Areas: 1200 KOs, 150 Damage Taken
Blue/Red Areas: 1600 KOs, 250 Damage Taken

They seemed to match up with my experience until yesterday. I was played a red stage and took 242 Damage and got a B. Based on that, I assumed that it was probably actually 200 damage taken for the blue/red stages. I even updated my guide to that for the next update to publish. But then, this happened today, on a blue stage:

So my new assumption that I will hopefully test out later is as follows:

Starting/Green Areas: 1200+ KOs, LESS THAN 100 Damage
Yellow/Purple/Orange Areas: 1200+ KOs, LESS THAN 150 Damage
Blue/Red Areas: 1600+ KOs, LESS THAN 200 Damage

If anyone else wants to try to help confirm this, that would be awesome. I can't do a lot of testing as most of my free time for playing is going into trying to get the guide updated, but I'm pretty sure those are fully correct now.

Edit: Fixed some stuff, first stage I played with a red stage, not blue like I first said. Read my notes wrong, heh.

I can try to help with that, but for now I do have a small offering for your guide.

The Twilight Jewel in white can be found in Adventure Map: G2 / 7 across 2 down, where you play as Tingle. The white twilight set was previously available only as a UK preorder from what I've read. I found the top at random, and so I went in search of the jewel by checking tiles with an accessory and then seeing if one was recorded for that tile. I don't know where the top is, but I made sure to make note of the jewel's location. I didn't make note of which keep the chest was in though, I didn't think about it at the time. >.<
It's supposed to be HitTheGroundWalking.

I hadn't done this one yet so I just went back and got it, it's in Central Square.

Hmm... I thought it was Percentage based.

BTW, what are the damage restrictions on the Rewards Map?

What do the damage numbers actually mean? One time I got 0 damage on the results screen even though I took a quarter heart of damage. I thought 1 damage = 1/4 heart but apparently not?

I'm pretty sure it's % of total health. I think. Maybe. I bet you had enough hearts that 1/4th a heart was less than 1% of your health, and so it said 0.

Those ARE percents.
As I was walking up the stairs, I met a man who wasn't there, he wasn't there again today, i wish I wish he'd go away

On a side note, I am pretty sure that there are stages where you can get S rank for under 1200 KOs. I've even got a recent screenshot to prove it.

Can confirm this is true. Agitha’s level two mission.
