Stage 3, named Black Peril according to the Genesis Kid Chameleon manual, is a theoretical section of the game Kid Chameleon. It comprises all the levels from Woods of Despair 1 (right after the second boss in the game) to the third boss level, Bagel Brothers.

  • It comprises 23 rounds, including 7 Elsewhere levels.
  • All paths take only 12 to 18 levels to complete.
  • It contains two of the three Murder wall levels.
  • It is the only stage with no Tornadoes.


These are all the rounds in Stage 3.

Elsewhere levelsEdit


Since there is a bridge from Stage 1 to Stage 2, and another one from Stage 2 to Stage 3, symmetry dictates there should be another one from Stage 3 to Stage 4. After looking through the maps on K-E, it is known there is no bridge between the two stages.
