It has been years I wanted to make that Lightning Cards FAQ, and finally, here
it is. I simply wanted to do it because the others walkthroughs all had 
different statements as to how to get the Lightning Cards and most of them 
were wrong and did not work (especially the ways to get the Lightning Cards 
during the boss fights), so I wanted to clear that up. I verified all the 
strategies to obtain the Lightning Cards on the boss fights, and the ones I 
listed down in this FAQ are the real ones. As for the Lightning Cards in the
levels, I tried my best to give the most details possible. Also note that for
some of the Cards you will need to have all the elemental bombs and some
specific Charaboms.

World 1 - Tentasia
-------------------


Level 1-1
=========

Lightning Card #1 - Near the end of the level, go in the path at the right 
                    before the mini-boss and kick an ice bomb at the water 
                    spout under the spinning log to stop it. Make it stop in 
                    horizontal position so you can pass. Blow up the vases at 
                    the right for a Card.

Lightning Card #2 - After making the tree fall to cross the first river near 
                    the beginning of the level, go straight ahead and you'll 
                    see a small lake with a small island in the center. Use 
                    your Fire Horn charabom to set up a line of bombs from 
                    the edge of the lake to the other side. The tree on the 
                    other side of the lake will fall so you can now cross. 
                    Blow up the vases on the other side to find the Card.

Lightning Card #3 - After crossing the wooden bridge with logs floating over 
                    the river, go down in the dry river at the other side and 
                    blow up the boulder at the right with a Big Bomb to fill 
                    up this river. Go back to the previous river which should 
                    now be dry. Blow up the boulder in this river too to fill 
                    it back. Go back in the other river now dry and blow up 
                    the boulder again. Then, go back to the previous river 
                    again and there should now be a vase in the dry river. 
                    Blow it to get a Card. 


Level 1-2
=========

Lightning Card #1 - At one place you'll notice an orange flower with a hole 
                    under it, but when you go near it, the flower tries to 
                    hide the hole. Stand on the water lilly near the flower 
                    at a good distance and kick a bomb in direction of the 
                    hole when the flower is not covering it (use Andlar to 
                    kick further). A vase should appear if the bomb falls 
                    in the hole. Blow it up for a Card.

Lightning Card #2 - In the area where the waterfall is (just before the 
                    mountain), there is a small island in the water with a 
                    vase on it and a water spout next to it. Throw an ice bomb
                    at the spout when it's low and make it explode in 
                    mid-air using Pommy. The water should become ice. Use that
                    new platform to reach the island and blow up the vase for 
                    a Card.

Lightning Card #3 - At the base of the mountain near the end of the level, 
                    there are three statue heads in the mountainside with 
                    water flowing from their mouths. Use Andlar to throw bombs
                    into their mouths to stop the water. You can then go down 
                    and blow the vase to get a Card.


Level 1-3
=========

Lightning Card #1 - Defeat the boss in less than 4 minutes.

Lightning Card #2 - Hit him with a Big Bomb while he is charging at you (use 
                    Pommy).

Lightning Card #3 - Hit him with a Big Bomb while he's standing still.

Lightning Card #4 - Hit him with a Big Bomb during his "Megaton Crush" attack 
                    (make sure the bomb explodes from of his attack and 
                    hurts him).

Lightning Card #5 - Stun the boss with a Big Bomb, then make sure the bomb 
                    explodes and hurt him right after stunning him (use 
                    Pommy).


Level 1-4
=========

Lightning Card #1 - Right before the end of the level, go left just before 
                    the exit arrow and follow the path. Blow up the big 
                    boulder in your way with a Big Bomb, then throw water 
                    bombs at the fires to take them off. Bomb the vases at 
                    the end of the path for a Card.

Lightning Card #2 - Near the beginning of the level where 3 huge vases are, 
                    use a Big Bomb to blow up the middle vase, then blow up 
                    the small vase to find a Card. 

Lightning Card #3 - In the area where you must put down bombs on pedestals 
                    to cross gaps, there is a path in the top right corner 
                    at the end of this area, but it's inaccessible. You'll 
                    need to use Pteradon to reach it. Throw a Big Bomb in 
                    the middle of the alley before the path you want to reach
                    and drop down from the side to land on the bomb and hold 
                    UP to bounce on the bomb and land in the path. Follow it
                    to the end to find a big vase. Blow it with a Big Bomb 
                    then blow the small one inside for a Card.


Level 1-5
=========

Lightning Card #1 - Blow up the first wooden bridge at the right in the 
                    mountain with a bomb to make the bridge fall off. Jump 
                    down the bridge then and ride down the current. There 
                    should be a cracked wall below. Bomb it, then go in the 
                    passage at the right. Use a wind bomb and the leaf to go 
                    up to the ledge above. Blow up the vases there for a Card.

Lightning Card #2 - Somewhere mid-way through the mountain is a cracked wall 
                    at the left which you can blow up. If you go in the 
                    passage after blowing up the wall, you'll end up near a 
                    wooden barricade with an enemy hidden in the wall. Use 
                    Marine Eel and throw a bomb in the opening in the fence 
                    at the right. Throw it diagonally so that the bomb passes 
                    through the two openings and hit the enemy. Once that's 
                    done, the platform at the left will start moving again. 
                    Go on it to reach the other side and throw a Big Bomb to 
                    the boulder on the other side of the gap using Andlar. 
                    Then, cross using the boulder and blow up the vases for 
                    a Card.

Lightning Card #3 - At the top of the mountain, follow the path going right 
                    and at the end, there should be a place where you can 
                    drop down on the ledge below. Throw a water bomb on the 
                    fire below first, then drop down and go right. Bomb the 
                    vase here for a Card.



World 2 - OctoOcean
--------------------


Level 2-1
==========

Lightning Card #1 - A bit after the start, after the third spot of spikes, 
                    continue to the right and you'll see a ledge in the 
                    corner at the right with an enemy on. Use a bomb to blow 
                    up the boulder nearby and use the bubbles to get lifted 
                    up on the ledge. Blow up the boxes on it to get a Card.

Lightning Card #2 - After passing on the two waterwheels one after the other, 
                    half-way through the level, go at the right of them to 
                    see an invisible box. Use a Light Bomb on it to make it 
                    visible, then blow it up to get a Card.

Lightning Card #3 - In the area with the waterwheels, after the second 
                    waterwheel, use Pteradon to drop a Big Bomb in the gap at 
                    the right and drop down on the bomb to bounce up to the 
                    other platform. Then do the same with the next gap and
                    bounce to the last platform. Blow up the boxes here for 
                    a Card.


Level 2-2
==========

Lightning Card #1 - At the end of the level, just before the mini-boss, there
                    is a ledge with a barrel on at the left of the path. Use 
                    a Light Bomb on the invisible bubbles nearby to make them 
                    visible, then use them to get lifted up to the ledge. 
                    Blow up the barrel there to get a Card.

Lightning Card #2 - After getting down from the first sunken ship, go left 
                    and let the current there transport you above it. Press 
                    DOWN/LEFT to land next to the barrel on the other side of 
                    the current. Blow up the barrel to get a Card.

Lightning Card #3 - At one place where the current sweep you away in 4 
                    corners (making a square), once you are at the top of the 
                    flow, press UP/LEFT to land on the platform in the middle 
                    of the currents. Blow the barrel here for a Card.


Level 2-3
=========

Lightning Card #1 - Defeat the boss in less than 4 minutes.

Lightning Card #2 - Hit the small robot above her head with a Big Fire Bomb 
                    using Andlar.

Lightning Card #3 - Hit the small robot above her head with a Big Water Bomb
                    using Andlar.

Lightning Card #4 - Hit her with a Big Bomb right before her attack "Lure Of
                    Elegant Flash" (when she's standing still before going up
                    in the air).

Lightning Card #5 - Throw her a Big Wind Bomb during her attack "Gorgeous 
                    Showtime" and make sure that one of the lights hits the 
                    bomb and hurt her in the process.


Level 2-4
=========

Lightning Card #1 - A bit after getting Card #3 near the end of the level, 
                    after the swinging bridge, you'll see a lone barrel on a 
                    high platform and a walrus in a hole in the ground at the 
                    left. Bomb the walrus and the platform he was on will 
                    raise. Quickly get on the platform while it raises. Then, 
                    use Pteradon and drop a Big Bomb from the edge. Bounce on 
                    it to land on the platform with the barrel and blow it up 
                    for a Card.

Lightning Card #2 - A bit before the end of the level, you'll notice 3 barrels
                    on a cliff. Go on the seesaw ice bridge just before that 
                    area and place a Big Bomb at the left extremity of the 
                    bridge (against the ice wall). The bridge will go down 
                    revealing a passage in the wall under the ice. Go into it 
                    to access the cliff with the barrels. Blow up the barrels 
                    to find a Card.

Lightning Card #3 - After clearing up the way with many walrus, the ground 
                    will raise. Backtrack a bit and return to where you were 
                    previously. Go down the slope to the lower ground and look
                    at the wall that raised to find an opening that wasn't 
                    there before. Blow up the barrel inside to get a Card.


Level 2-5
=========

Lightning Card #1 - Go in the path at the left of the room with the big 
                    moveable ice block near the beginning of the level and 
                    you'll be in a room with two wooden planks on the ground. 
                    Bomb them and two water spouts will come out from below 
                    them. Climb on the cliff at the left and throw ice bombs 
                    at the planks to freeze them and create a path to reach 
                    the other side. Blow up the barrel there to get a Card.

Lightning Card #2 - This one is where the very long ice block you can move 
                    is. Throw a Big Bomb on the north extremity of the block 
                    to make it move south. Then go down and right into the 
                    passage inside the ice block. Go up the slope on the 
                    other side and you'll be on the ice block. Go down and 
                    blow up the barrels on the platform to get the Card.

Lightning Card #3 - Near the end of the cave, you'll come across a small 
                    water spot with two platforms in the ice, but go straight
                    past this small lake and continue to follow the path to 
                    the end where another small lake is. Throw a bomb on the 
                    moving ice platform above the water and make it explode 
                    using Pommy when the bomb is near the other platform stuck
                    in the ice on the other side. Use that other platform now 
                    to reach the other side of the lake. Blow up the barrels 
                    at the left here for a Card.
                    


World 3 - TakoDesert
---------------------


Level 3-1
==========

Lightning Card #1 - Blow up the wall at the very right of the area a bit 
                    after the entrance of the level using the strategy 
                    involving the sandworm, then blow up the vase now that 
                    the wall is down to get a Card.

Lightning Card #2 - In the area with the 2 dinosaur skulls, go to the very 
                    left and go down in the passage there. Kick a bomb in 
                    the hole under the bones to open the second skull. Blow 
                    up the vase inside for a Card.

Lightning Card #3 - At the beginning of the area with the ruins and 
                    quicksands, go to right of the first pillar you must 
                    blow up to make a bridge and throw water bombs at the 
                    fires to clear the way. Bomb the vases behind for a Card.


Level 3-2
==========

Lightning Card #1 - At the start of the level, enter the temple and stand 
                    on the platform with the yellow switch. Place a bomb on 
                    it to go up, then press the green switch at the left. 
                    Continue on that ledge and follow it to the end at the 
                    left. You'll have to cross the gap there using a Big Bomb
                    and Pteradon to bounce on the other side of the gap. 
                    Cross the other gap too to reach the higher platform. 
                    Blow up the vase on it for a card.

Lightning Card #2 - At the end of the level, towards the exit door, go in 
                    the middle passage with the red carpet and go past the 
                    statues. At the end, use a wind bomb and the leaf to 
                    reach the ledge with a vase on. Blow it up to get a Card.

Lightning Card #3 - In the center of the temple, a bit after the start, where
                    there are two doors and an empty fountain, open the door 
                    at the right using the lamp and the statue head. In the 
                    room there, go up the stairs and throw a big light bomb 
                    at the invisible bridge to make it visible. Cross it, 
                    then blow up the vase at the end to find a Card.


Level 3-3
=========

Lightning Card #1 - Defeat the boss in less than 4 minutes.

Lightning Card #2 - After his attack "Eagle Bomb Dropper" (when he flies and 
                    drops bombs), hit him with a Big Bomb while he is 
                    hovering near you (make sure to stun him with the bomb 
                    first).

Lightning Card #3 - Hit him with a Big Bomb right after his "Eagle Comet" 
                    attack (when he dashes in your direction) (make sure to 
                    stun him with the bomb first).

Lightning Card #4 - Hit him with a Big Bomb right before his "Twister" 
                    attack (when he spins around the arena) (make sure to stun
                    him with the bomb first).

Lightning Card #5 - During his "Piledriver" attack (when he glides around the 
                    arena before grabbing you), hurt him with a Big Ice Bomb 
                    (place the bomb around the arena and when the boss passes 
                    near it, make it explode using Pommy).


Level 3-4
==========

Lightning Card #1 - In the right side of the temple (top right corner), there 
                    is a yellow switch on a high platform you can't reach. 
                    Use Angol and throw a bomb on that yellow switch. Then, 
                    quickly kick a bomb into the small hole in the wall at 
                    the right to make the little hut explode. Then blow up 
                    the vases on the other side to find a Card.

Lightning Card #2 - In the left side of the temple (bottom left corner), open 
                    the door there using the lamp and the statue, and you'll 
                    be in a room with 2 leaves. Use the wind bomb to go up 
                    with the right leaf and kick a bomb in the small hut to 
                    blow it up. Then, use the other leaf to go up to the 
                    ledge. Bomb the vase there for a Card.

Lightning Card #3 - In the left side of the temple, there is a yellow switch 
                    at the left of one of the statues firing beams (move the 
                    camera around or you may miss it). Set a bomb on the 
                    switch to lower a pillar nearby with a lamp on it. Then, 
                    make the statue's beam hit the lamp to open the door. 
                    Blow up the vases behind the door for a Card.


Level 3-5
==========

Lightning Card #1 - Do the exact same thing as Card #2, but instead of 
                    putting the big bomb on the pedestal, place it at the 
                    left of the middle pillar, against it. Then on the second 
                    floor, drop down in the middle hole instead and you 
                    should fall on the bomb and bounce on the pillar with 
                    the vase containing the card.

Lightning Card #2 - On the first floor of the temple, go to the right and 
                    you'll see an invisible pedestal. Use a light bomb to 
                    make it visible, then go back to where the elevator is, 
                    but don't go down on it yet. Stay on the ledge in front 
                    of it and kick a bomb into the "mouth" of the elevator 
                    with P. Dragon. Leave the bomb there and go back to the 
                    pedestal. Place a Big Bomb on it, then go back to the 
                    elevator and stand on it. Detonate the first bomb by 
                    pressing the B button and you'll go up to the second 
                    floor. Once there, go right and drop down in the last 
                    hole. You should fall on the big bomb you placed below 
                    and bounce back on the pillar with a vase on. Blow it 
                    up to get the Card.

Lightning Card #3 - After finding and pressing all the green switches, go to 
                    the fourth floor of the tower and cross using the 
                    platforms in the top right corner. Blow up the vase 
                    there to get a Card.



World 4 - Nekki Moon

Level 4-1
==========

Lightning Card #1 - After deactivating the first yellow dome, go right, then 
                    turn right again at the corner and follow the fence of 
                    the lasers area to find a container at the end. Blow it 
                    up for a Card.

Lightning Card #2 - After riding the three first mine carts, hit the lever at 
                    the left to change the tracks and jump back into the same 
                    mine cart to reach a new area with another yellow dome. 
                    Go straight and at the end of the path, at the left of the
                    dome, blow up the containers to find a Card.

Lightning Card #3 - In the area where Card #2 was, look at the left of the 
                    mine cart to see a lever at the other side of a small gap.
                    Throw a bomb next to it to change the tracks once again. 
                    Jump back into the mine cart to reach another area. Here, 
                    go down to the ground level and explore the area until you
                    find two containers at the end of a path. Blow them up to 
                    get a Card.


Level 4-2
==========

Lightning Card #1 - When the boss separates his top from his body and starts

                    at the boss' body 

Lightning Card #2 - When the boss starts vacuuming (after the machine gun

Lightning Card #5 - When the boss starts shooting bombs from his head near 
                    the end of the fight, use a Big Bomb and use the Bomb 
                    Barrier to deflect the boss' bomb. Make sure that one of 
                    the bombs hits your barrier


Level 4-3
==========

Lightning Card #1 - Near the Bomb Merge Portal (the yellow one), in the room 
                    with the lava, go on the platform nearby using the small 
                    elevator and blow up the box there to find a Card.

Lightning Card #2 - In the room with the lava, use Fire Horn to reach all the 
                    platforms (look everywhere, it's hard to describe exactly 
                    where) and on one of the platforms there is a box with a 
                    card inside.

Lightning Card #3 - In the lava room, there is a box surrounded by fire on one
                    of the platforms. Use Water Bombs to take off the fire, 
                    then set up a Big Bomb and use Pteradon to bounce on it 
                    and reach the platform with the box. Blow it up to get a 
                    Card.

Level 5-1
==========

Lightning Card #1 - Near the beginning of the level, open the door "Hg 01" 
                    by placing a bomb on the yellow switch. Then, use the 
                    leaf and a wind bomb to reach the ledge with some 
                    containers. Blow them up to find a Card.

Lightning Card #2 - After crossing the invisible bridge using a light bomb, 
                    blow up the containers at the left and you'll see a 
                    Card, but you can't get to it yet. Get down from the 
                    ledge by dropping a wind bomb below to use the leaf. 
                    Then follow the path until you see 2 leaves. Use the 
                    left one to reach the ledge above, then follow that 
                    ledge to the end where you'll find the Card.

Lightning Card #3 - At the very end of the level, right before the exit is 
                    a leaf. Use a wind bomb to reach the ledge above with

                    be 2 pipes. Go in the pipe with an arrow that points 3 
                    directions. Then you'll be floating above the next pipe. 
                    Drop down below in the room with two enemies. Cross the

                    platform floating above. Use a light bomb on it to make

                    lower the platform and use it to cross. Blow up the 
                    containers on the other side to get a Card.

Lightning Card #3 - Near the end, there will be 3 pipes with a "?" on. Jump
