    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

    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.

    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.

                        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

    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
