Located to the left of the World 2 entrance is Boness Von Bon Bon’s boss level. You can tell it is her level as the house itself is made of candy. Completing this boss fight opens up the tent to the right and gives access to the Birdhouse and a Run and Gun.

Head to the right of Djimmi’s Pyramid and you will reach Beppi’s level. The level itself is a rollercoaster. Beating the Beppi fight opens up the tent to the left of the boss fight.

If you are curious over how many times you’ve died in Cuphead, or just want to see a cartoony version of Dark Souls‘ Kingseeker Frampt, head to the right of Beppi’s boss level. You will see a pool that look vaguely familiar. Interact with the pool to learn how many times you’ve died.

Man Short Quartet

You may have noticed a quartet that is missing a fourth member. This member is located in the area area with the Run and Gun after beating Baroness Von Bon Bon. Head to the location in the second picture to find the fourth member. Talking to him will return him to the group and unlocks a nice song.

Boss: Grim Matchstick

The Juggler can be found outside of Grim Matchstick’s tower. His challenge to you is to parry four times without touching the ground. At this point in the game it should be fairly easy to complete.
