1. Introduction
The 3rd Parodius for the Super Famicom, is a great game with a ton of replay 
value! (Read my review at Gamefaqs.com!) If you have never played a Parodius 
game, you are in for a real treat! It is like the classic Gradius series, but 
with some strange twists! Thank Konami for such a great game! The following 
will help you find the 70 hidden fairies and beat those tough (hah!) bosses! 
This is my first FAQ/walkthrough/guide thingy, so bear with me! This guide 
can be used on your page, just give me credit, please? Thanks! If you have 
any questions or comments, feel free to e-mail me!

V1.1 - 3/19/2000 - Fixed most(?) of the spelling errors, fixed the 2 Anime 
girls description (They are not from Tokimeki Memorial as I suspected, they 
are from Gokujyou Parodius (The 2nd SF one)). Fixed a location for a fairy 
(#55, making level 6 have 3 fairies instead of 2, and level 5 have 8, not 9.)
I also added a new spoiler (Which I found out this morning!)

V1.0 - 3/2/2000 - FAQ is finally finished.

other options, available only when you beat the game or get all fairies...

(Check PentaroX's guide for info on the above options in more detail (also

4. Areas
(These are short descriptions of each area, so you can see the areas on your 

World 1 - Go through a disco nightclub
(Music: The disco medley! "Oh what a night/That's the way I like it/Do a 
little dance)

World 2 - Go through a local school/college
(Music: Not sure!)

World 3 - Go through Twinbee land
(Music: Minuet in D)

World 4 - Go through Mystic Ninja land
(Music: Mystical Ninja music)

World 5 - Go through a cavern of food
(Music: Debussy, Laser Platform music of Gradius 3)

World 6 - Go through Lethal Enforcers land 
(Music: Lethal Enforcers?)

World 7 - Go through the Parade of Mayors
(Music: 2 volcanos Gradius music, with a famous Mystical Ninja song for one 
of the bosses!)

World 8 - Gradius 3 Finale Reprise
(Music: Gradius 3 - Shadowdancer level, 2 volcanos Gradius music)

5. Bosses
(On the highest difficulty level (8), the bosses throw a ton of projectiles 
at you, especially after they die! BTW, most bosses will die on their own if 
you wait to long...)

World 1 - 
Disco Ball and the Dancin' 'n Singin' Panda

Disco Ball - Go right in front of the chain holding the ball off the ground. 
Shoot it 8 times to break the ball and reveal your prize...

Dancin' 'n Singin' Panda - Shoot at the mallard duck. It will take around 12 
hits. Avoid the panda's notes, and when the panda gets to the left side and 
sings, stay over by it's mouth and shoot the notes. When the panda moves 
right, it does a jumping twirl that can kill you if you do not stay to the 
far left (or right) of him.

World 2 -
2 Anime girls - Hikaru and Skane

Traitors! They once helped you out, now they own the "Technical College for 
the Evil Impaired"!
As the screen scrolls upward, watch out for the girls in bubbles. You can 
shoot the bottom girl (Skane) for fun and she sticks her tongue out at you :) 
When you get to the top girl (Hikaru), stay to the left side of the screen 
and shoot at her eye. Watch out for the annoying Moai's, especially the ones 
that jump out from her hair. 12 hits should do it...

World 3 -
Paro Flying Squadron and the Momma Bee

Paro Flying Squadron (I call it this because it reminds me so much of Keio 
Flying Squadron, it isn't funny. So does the wacky music!) - Stay at the 
bottom of the screen, and if you have them, let your homing missiles shoot up 
at the 4 turrets. If you don't have them, manuever up in front of each turret 
and blow it up. After this, stay at the bottom of the screen and to the far 
left. The bottom of the flying ship opens, revealing a mid-size Twin bee 
(Which somehow reminds me of Darius, including the music...). Stay to the far 
left and fire away avoiding its 2 mini-ships. After beating it, a fairy will 
be passing by in the water (It's hidden, like the other 69 fairies). Shoot 
above the water to receive it! Pretty soon, the Momma Bee appears...

Momma Bee - She comes from the right side of the screen shaking her "you know 
whats" :) Stay to the left and avoid her lipstick missiles that come out a 
few times. Shoot her in the face when her helmet is off. After the missile 
attack, she rushes forward doing something "naughty" :D, avoid this "naughty" 
attack, and continue shooting her in the face. After you beat her, prepare to 
laugh and be shocked!

World 4 -
I am Goemon Impact... and Mrs. Goemon Impact?!

It's a cold day when a hero becomes a boss... Sigh... Anyway, start shooting 
his face, and what out for his Ebisimaru (Dr. Yang) Bombs, that he spits out. 
After being shot 4 times, he will compact and do a "buzzsaw" attack while 
shooting fireballs and moving around the room. Avoid this, and repeat the 
process 2 more times. Once you have shot him 12 times, Mrs. Impact appears! 
Shoot 4 more times and you are off to the next level!

World 5 -
Lips: Part Tres

After 2 foiled attempts to defeat you in Parodius Da! and Gokujyou Parodius, 
he is back and this time he means business! Make sure to get the fairy above 
and below him. Once you get the fairies, stay to the left side of the screen 
moving up and down to avoid the lasers while shooting the little guys inside 
the lips. Once in a while he transformes and throws tiny lasers all over the 
room. After beating the 3 "creatures" in his mouth, he will split and try to 
crush you. Move out of his way, and he'll explode into shiny shards of glass!

World 6 -
Puyo Puyo Man!

At the end of this level, you are expecting a big shoot-out with some 
digitized robbers from Lethal Enforcers, but NOOOOOOO, you get to fight Puyo 
Puyo Man! He starts by dropping puyos on to you. Stay near his face to avoid 
this. The higher the difficulty, the more puyos that will drop! After this, 
watch out for his homing fan, and shoot him in the face. After a few hits, he 
gets a new wig. Keep shooting him and watching out for those dastardly puyos, 
and soon he'll get a Sailor Moon wig(?!) Keep firing, and you are off to the 
2 final levels!

World 7 -
Boss #1 - Teach an old boss new tricks
Boss #2 - Another Mystical Ninja Favorite...
Boss #3 - Mid-size Twin Bee returns!

Boss #1 -
Now, haven't we fought this goon before? Yep, it's the same one dating back 
to the first Gradius, and he brought some new tricks with him! After hitting 
him a lot, he will turn backwards, and go to the other side of the screen! 
Now would be a great time to use a tailgun weapon if you have it. Avoid his 
lasers, and it's time for boss #2...

Boss #2 -
Ever play Mystical Ninja for SNES? No? I highly suggest you turn the game off 
(save of course) and go play it, at least to the first boss of area 1. Okay, 
now come back to Parodius. It's her! Just shoot her a few times in the head 
to reveal her true self... Kurobei Cat! What the fudge is (s)he doing waaay 
up here in space? At least (s)he gives you a power-up pod before disappearing 
into a puff of smoke...

Boss #3 -
He's back, and this time, he means business! The mini boss from Paro Flying 
Squadron (above) returns in his new store-bought 
pig-angelic-twin-bee-machine-with-a-price-tag-still-attached-to-its-tail. Go 
up and down avoiding his lasers and fire away! Just make sure he doesn't get 
close to you! After breaking his armor, he'll shoot "Actraiser/R-type-type" 
lasers at you that spread when you hit them. Continue going up and down until 
he shows his true form!

World 8 -
The Showgirl cometh and the final battle!

You can't kill the showgirl, just avoid her until she leaves! Don't let her 
speed fool you, as she wil not crash into you as long as you stay on the 
opposite side of the screen! After getting past her, you'll fight the Samurai 
Octopus! Make sure to get Fairy #70 at the top of the screen in the drape 
(right after the boss door closes.) All I can say is good luck! (heh heh heh)

6. The 70 fairies
Get all 70 for a special treat! If you want to know what kind of a treat it 
is, it's listed at the bottom of this guide as (*2). (There are also many 
other secrets down there as well, but be warned: They are spoilers! Not like 
any of this other stuff is, of course...) Note that only your weapons and 
blue bell bombs can grab the fairies, so if you want the fairies, DON'T use 
the green bell or you will no doubt miss some! Also, put the difficulty on 
"1" to find the fairies without too much difficulty. Upa and Rupa's Megacrush 
doesn't work either...
Rupa and Ran are the best at getting the fairies, with their weapons 
(Multispread Gun and Reflect at full power.)

When in doubt, use bombs!

Area 1 (10 fairies)

1. Just as you start the area, go to the bottom of the screen into the 
cityscape and shoot!

construction-striped platform.

one's face. Use a bomb for best results.

wall (use a bomb for best results)

(Warning: 13-18 are very hard fairies to get, so good luck!)

13. Near the beginning of the pencil area, scroll up and down and look for a 
small pencil (it will have a pink penguin of top of it.) Shoot under it.

watch for a teacher moai blocking a dead end. Kill her and shoot in the area.

these and shoot. 

16. For this fairy have a bomb or you are going to need to die to get it. 
After #15, watch for a small closed area made of pencils. the fairy is inside 
of there. Use your bombs or die to fit in there (You need to have the Option 
1, "Revive" on to start right where you die).

17. Right after the above fairy, watch for 2 more pencils just like #15 and 
get the fairy between them.

18. Near the end of the pencil area, you will find another dead end Moai. 
Just follow #14's instructions.

bells, shoot at the first sight of land near the bottom of the screen.

fairy is on top of the bridge near the right end of it.

23. When you get to a floating rock with a waterfall on it, go to the right 
side of the rock and get the fairy (a bomb works well).

24. On the second rock like #23, the fairy is above and to the right of it.

25. After going uphill, the fairy is in an alcove at the very bottom of the 

26. Right after the island with the annoying girl on it, shoot at the right 
side of her island for the fairy.

for this fairy. careful! It is hard to get (use a bomb).

Area 4 (a whopping 19 fairies)

28. When you first see the top of a cherry blossom tree, get near it, and

bottom of the screen by the cherry blossoms.

you just got the other fairy (It's hard to explain, use a bomb!)

shoot in one of the top left hand corners.

38. After #37, rush to the bottom and shoot behind the 1st cookie in the 
empty space.

39. This and the next 4 fairies are in the area you have to blow up the 
pastry walls. Use a bomb or full grade up weapon to find them all!

7. Help Me!
I need someone to help me:

- translate the story
- translate what the "Oshaberi" guy is saying through out the game
- find any codes (I haven't found any, including up, up , down, down, etc..., 
it doesn't work!)

8. Credits
Thanks to everyone at GameFAQs, everyone who played this game (legally of 
course), and you for reading. Also, play the other Parodius games in this 
great series, they are FUN!

Special thanks to PentaroX for his guide about the weapons and other things. 
If there isn't an answer to your question in this guide, check his!


*1 Get some pods and get some weapons. Save the game (Start and press Select, 
than A) and reload and you'll still have all your weapons, but your score 
will be 0.
*2 A stage select opens up after getting all 70 fairies.
*3 If you beat the game on 7, 8 difficulty will open up. Beat that (good 
luck!), and you can choose what "quest" to start on (Meaning how many times 
you beat the game (Difficulty on 8 and this option on 8 is the hardest 
possible game variation.))
*NEW* *4 - Beating the game on level 8 and the "quest" option on different 
levels makes characters show up during the credits! So far I got a Santa 
being pulled by a Flareon(?) and a Zebra on a rocket!
