This orb only appears in Pagoda Peak, and players can use it themselves. If used, a cannon will appear, and the player will enter it. Afterwards, the cannon will fire the player to a higher level of the mountain. Sometimes the player can go far from the range, while other times, the firing range is low. The amount of spaces traveled when using this Orb does not count for the Running Star.
