WARNING: If you have not completed Guacamelee then be wary; this article contains spoilers.
While playing through Guacamelee you may have noticed strange gates or statues. You may have also noticed that at the end of the game you received an item that seemed out of place, and you may be asking yourself “How do I collect the rest of the Luchador Mask pieces?” Well, let me tell you! Traveling through these special gates and collecting the 6 secret mask pieces is challenging but unlocks a special secret ability and “something else.” So here is how you get them-
Caverna del Pollo- This area is found down near the bottom of Santa Luchita, near the mine carts. It is a series of 10 combat rooms all resulting in a secret chest. You must go through 3 sets of the combat room (30 in total) to gain access to the Chac Mool portal. I would suggest unlocking every item you can before attempting the 3rd set, as it is quite challenging.
Forest de Chivo- First you need to find the shown skull switch. It is located to the right of the giant gap in a spot only accessible to the chicken. After you hit it, run out and onto the hill you were underneath. Use the Goat Fly ability and head to the left. If you have jumped properly, you will hit a floating platform and drop down almost exactly where you need to be. Drop down through the open chicken hole and head to the Chac Mool.
Sierra Morena- After you get the Goat Fly ability head back to the Sierra. Go to the spot in the map shown and simply fly to the portal. Now get ready to jump to and from disappearing platforms for a while. And I do mean a while. Just bust out your Megaman skills and make this dungeon go back with its tail between its legs.
Agave Fields- Go back to your home luchador, and find your bed. Turn into a chicken and face the right wall. Swap between worlds and you will see a small open spot. You have to change worlds at just the right time to slip through it. Next you have to wind your way through a twisty maze, similar to one you might have encountered earlier in the game. Just use the left-hand rule and you will eventually reach the Chac Mool portal.
Tree Tops- Once you have every ability, go back to the Tule Tree. Look for the special statue shown and head upwards. This will lead you to what is arguably the most difficult challenge in all of Guacamelee. I have included a picture detailing how to traverse the hardest part, but the rest is up to you. Perseverance and quick reflexes are the only way you are going to ascend this mountain, but hold fast, you are almost done.
The Great Temple- Once you have collected every other secret piece, go back and face the final boss. Try to kill him with only melee hits, no meteors, this time, to earn a trophy.
And now you should have the Luchador Mask and a new special chicken ability. Hope you enjoyed this guide. If you have any questions or thoughts, let us know in the comments.
