Rock Block Badlands is the twelfth course of Episode 3 in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and its Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS ports of the same name.


The level consists of two Turnip Cannons which can be raised or lowered via the Spinwheels. It also features red Bill Blasters. To gain access to the Power Star, Captain Toad must utilize either Turnip Cannon to destroy the Rock Blocks, then make his way to the Power Star via a ladder on the other side of the course. He must then use another Spinwheel to lower the platform containing the Power Star.

Super Gems[edit]

Three Super Gems can be found throughout the level.

  • Super Gem 1: On top of the elevated platform beside the two Turnip Cannons. There is a climbable ladder behind the alcove below the platform.
  • Super Gem 2: Suspended in midair. To obtain it, Captain Toad must use the Turnip Cannon on the right and shoot a Turnip in between the pillars of the tower to the right of the tower containing the Power Star.
  • Super Gem 3: On top of an elevated platform, which can be accessed by dropping down from the tower with the hidden Gold Mushroom Pluck Patch.


Pixel Toad[edit]

The Pixel Toad can be found in the far right corner of the level behind a Rock Block, above a pile of coins. The player can use the nearby Turnip Cannon to destroy the block to reveal him.

Luigi Sighting[edit]

By lowering and getting into the left Turnip Cannon, then turning left, an 8-bit Luigi can be seen on the underside of a platform.
