Above the Clouds (Wario Land 3)
Above the Clouds is the sixth level on the southern side of the music box world in Wario Land 3. The area is accessible after procuring the Sky Key from Tower of Revival's Blue Chest, where a door is unlocked to access this level.
As its name implies, the level takes place in a sky and is above the clouds. The bottom of the level depicts a structure made of bricks, which could be the top of the Tower of Revival. The platforms Wario can use are appearing and disappearing clouds. The moon also makes an appearance in this level at night after Wario gets the Full Moon Gong from Sea Turtle Rocks' Blue Chest.
Gray Chest: Crayon (green)
The green Crayon is in the Gray Chest. It is available as soon as the level is unlocked.
To get the Gray Key, Wario must make his way to door on the platform on one of the thin clouds in the same area. To get there, he must jump through the platforms to go to the lower right thick cloud, then go to the thick cloud to the left while watching out for the bird, and then up to the right to the middle thick cloud, and then going down the thin clouds to the right until he encounters the door. After entering the door, the Gray Key is in sight, at the drop-off.
To exit the area after obtaining the Gray Key, Wario must navigate a series of clouds to the right, then make his way up in a zigzag path. There are Hebarii peeking out from the ceiling, whose projectiles should be avoided while going up. After exiting the area, Wario must drop from the door to the Gray Chest at the bottom of the area.
The green Crayon flies to the tower on the northern side of the world. The crayon is used to color one part of the area that is initially monochrome. The green crayon colors the greenery that surrounds the building. After the area is colored by seven different crayons, the Golf minigame there can be played.
Red Chest: Fire Drencher
The Fire Drencher is located in the Red Chest. It is available as soon as the level is unlocked.
To get to the Red Key, Wario must first go to the upper area, which can be reached by first going to the lower right thick cloud, then going left and up to the leftmost thick cloud, then going right and up to the middle thick cloud, then going left, up, and right to the upper right thick cloud to go up, where there is one spark on the way there. In the upper area, Wario must first go up and left to the middle left thick cloud, then go right and up to the middle thick cloud, and then go up and left to the door on a thin cloud. Within this room, there are Beam Robotas, where they must be brought down so that Wario can bounce from one of them to break a damaged block on the left with his head, and then use one to throw upwards to the Enemy Blocks above the Red Key to break them. To get to the Red Key, Wario must exit the room and then go to another thin cloud with a door. To reach it, he must go down to the middle thick cloud, and then go left and then up to it. In the room, he must make his way up and then right to the narrow gap to the ladder, watching out for the Beam Robota on the way. The Red Key is to the right above the ladder, which requires dropping down.
After acquiring the Red Key, Wario must make his way back to the other door, then go up the ladder. Instead of going right from there, he must go left to reach the Red Chest.
Green Chest: Jackhammer
The Jackhammer in the Green Chest requires the Scissors from the Cave of Flames' Blue Chest to access. Originally, there is a balloon tied to a building at the entrance; after the Scissors is acquired, the string attached to the balloon is cut off, causing it to float and stop under the cloud containing a door in the upper area, allowing it to be accessed.
Before going to the newly accessible door, the Golf minigame near the start should be completed, since the associated mini-game block is in the new area. To get to where the balloon is. Wario must go to the upper area. In this area, the balloon is reached by first going up and left to the middle left thick cloud, then up and right to the middle thick cloud, then near the upper-left thick cloud by going right, up, left, then up on the thin clouds. In this room, there are zombies near the beginning, as well as many birds. To get to the Green Key, Zombie Wario must be triggered by one of the zombies, and then he must slowly make his way to the right past the birds and then down the thin platforms, to the left past the birds and a Prince Froggy and then down the thin platforms. From there he can either go to the right past the birds or go left to be restored to normal from the beam of light and then move to the right while avoiding the birds to the Green Key.
After getting the Green Key, Wario must jump on the series of thin platforms on the right upwards, and then jump on the series of thin platforms a bit to the left upwards. From there, he must move to the left to where the mini-game block is (if the Golf minigame is not cleared after entering the level, then Wario must exit the area and go to the bottom of the lower area to clear it). From the mini-game block, the Green Chest is down the ladder and to the right.
The Jackhammer drills holes in the ground in one of The East Crater's rooms to cause an updraft in one of the rooms.
Blue Chest: Pick-Axe
The Pick-Axe in the Blue Chest requires the Full Moon Gong from Sea Turtle Rocks' Blue Chest to access. This causes a moon to appear in this level only during nighttime, which also appears on the overworld map.
During nighttime, Wario must make his way to the upper are of this level, and then going up through the cloud platforms until he reaches the top-right to where the moon is. The Blue Key is at the drop-off from the entrance.
The Blue Chest is within the moon, where a door is found above a cloud platform. Within the moon, there are two rooms. The first room contains three Togēba, where the middle one is needed to reach a rock. The rock is needed to break the Enemy Blocks on the right side by riding atop the right Togēba to reach. Below the Enemy Blocks is a door, leading to the second room. In the second room, there are two birds. The one on the right is needed for Wario to bounce off from to pass a narrow gap in the pillar, while the one of the left should be avoided while Wario navigates the red platforms to the left, down, then right. Should Wario fall off at any point here, he returns to the first area. There are damaged blocks before the Blue Chest that must be broken with a Dash Attack to reach it.
The Pick-Axe is used to chisel a hole containing a portal leading to a new area in The East Crater, cracking it wide open so that Wario is able to fit through it.
