  • egg

When you die in a stage and the hearts spill out of the fiend's cauldron, if you hold down on the circle pad/circle pad pro (or the B button for alternative movement controls) you will see a short scene of the spilled hearts tumbling into the Underworld and an 8-bit Reaper from the original Kid Icarus getting startled.

Aries Armor (Power) Ch. 18: At the Hot Spring area with the Souflee, go to the left.
Cancer Claws Ch. 8: In the constellation storage room, after defeating the Snong, don't take the Jump Pad. Take the dead end path to the right and jump down.

Sagittarius Bow Ch. 2: When you go down the ramp (Right before you meet Magnus), there is a tapestry decorating one of the bends. Run through it.
Scorpio Staff Ch. 16: When you get the Aether Ring and float down an opening, look for an opening. Shoot the switch in that opening and you'll be able to enter.
Taurus Arm Ch. 4: In the room with the narrow path and two scythes, drop down to the Clubberskull pit. One of the holes is glowing. Jump into that hole.
Virgo Palm Ch. 12: There's an area that gives you an elevator after killing some monsters. Look towards it. A second elevator is behind you. Take that elevator.
