Hydra pieces are in the following locations. Note:

Part X (Wing 1): The second or third floor of the four story glide
Part Y (Wing 2): Just outside of the four story glide area, or
just outside/inside of the forest area.
Part Z (Body/Head): Underground near the north/south exits.
To unlock the awesome machine in City Trial Free Run, you must
collect the following three parts:
Part X: City Trial: Destroy all the dilapidated houses (things
that look like bomb shelters), This is best done with Swerve Star
or Rex Wheelie.
Part Y: Stadium: Destruction Derby (All); KO enemies over 150
times. Once again, this best done with Swerve Star or Rex Wheelie.
Part Z: Stadium: Kirby Melee (All); KO over 1500 enemies .This
is best done with the Swerve Star and the Sword ability.
Use the following trick to unlock Hydra/Dragoon. When the "every
box is the same" event is on, if you look at the red boxes,
non-spinning reds contain pieces. If you are playing and hear
a little ding or some other noise, it indicates that someone else
got a piece. Kill all the CPU players to get it. If you get a
piece, it seems that your chances will go up to find the rest.
If you look at a regular box and it is not disappearing or going
away, break it open to find Hydra pieces.
One of the steps to unlock the Hydra is an easy task. Destroy
all of the gray houses that needs to be destroyed. Do not waste
your time with a house that has one or two cracks in it; only
ones require one or two hits. It is still a good idea to make
sure to destroy every cracked house. The other two will need purple
boxes to be filled in. To get one, get trampled by Dynablade.
Hold A under his feet and do not let go. Wait until you
get some damage, or until he flies away. The other thing you can
do is to bust all the rocks on the field in Destruction Derby
1,or bust the Star Pole by gliding into the actual star ten times.
This fulfills the "Destruction Derby (all); KO enemies over
150 times and Kirby Melee (all); KO over 1500 enemies requirements.
To get Hydra and Dragoon easily, get two parts of one of them
(in red boxes). Then, go to the forest and you may see a box sign
but it will say it is underground. Go to the tree and down the
secret passage. You will see a red box. It contains the final
part of the Hydra or Dragoon. Also, you can only find legendary

Kirby Melee 2: Kill over 75 enemies in Kirby Melee 1
Hint: Checker Knights: Shortcuts:
On the last part of the course, there is a castle with
boosts leading up to it. There is a small indent in the road.
You can use it to fly over a sharp U-turn. This is very useful
if using Rex Wheelie, but you have to jab sharply to the right
after hitting the boost. After that, you can see switches in the
road. These are what bring the walls inside the castle up and
down. Also, when you see giant rock structures early in the course,
you can plow into the front for a quick shortcut. However, this
is best done in a heavy car.
Hint: Sky Sands: Shortcut:
When you reach to the area where sand is falling you
can find a hidden passage in the top right, behind the sand.
Hint: Whispy Woods: Fly high:
With two players, go to the golf place. Have one Kirby
go in the hole, and get as close to the other Kirby as possible
without leaving the hole. Then, have both players count to three,
with the Kirby in the hole starting to jump when the count reaches
"two". When you get to go, have the Kirby on the star
go in the hole. The other Kirby will fly up very far.
Hint: Get off board:
Hold A to charge up, then hold Analog-stick
Hint: View character:
You can look at your character with the C-stick
when you pause the game.
Hint: Finding All Power-Ups:
The quickest way is to play City Trial, but not on
Free Play mode. Wait until the Special UFO appears, then travel
to the Volcano to grind down into it. Take the leap from the Volcano
to the special garden, otherwise known as heaven, and hop onto
the UFO. There will be three All Power-Ups there along with lots
of other Power-Ups. The All Power-Ups look like flashing circles.
Glitch: Leave level boundary:
In Free Ride City Trial mode, go off the green ramp
by the big waterwheel with the flight warpstar. Fly as far and
as high you can then wait until you hit a barrier. When you land,
you will realize that you hit a second barrier and have landed
in the water past the first barrier. If you turn around, you will
see a ramp. Go up, and you will be back on the normal field and
the ramp that you just went up on will be blocked by a fence.
There is another ramp by the volcano, which will also be blocked
by a fence after you use it.
In Free Ride City Trial mode, go to the satellite (the thing in
the sky that you get to by going inside the volcano or on top
of the volcanic mountain and going inside on the yellow rails).
Get on the Flight Warp Star (the orange star like the normal warp
star) and jump off towards the nearest edge of land. Go as far
as you can until you hit the real wall and fall. You are now outside
the original barrier.
Get a very good flying vehicle, like Dragoon. Go on a ramp and
fly directly up. You will soon start bumping around. After that,
you will start going down. Keep holding Up. If done correctly,
you will have left the level boundary.
Glitch: City Trial: Reach end of the gliding
To get to the end of the gliding stages, two players
are required. First, select stadium mode on City Trial and choose
any one of the gliding stages. Next, one of the players should
face a corner instead of launching his machine. Then, launch the
other player's machine. Glide as far as you can, then get of your
machine. Quickly start running to the end. This will require about
twenty minutes. When at the end, notice that you are at the starting
line again, and have traveled around the stage's world.
Glitch: Freeze game:
When the random event "Air Ride formation approaching"
occurs, hit the formation with your vehicle. The game will freeze.
Go into City Trial as King Deedee. Go to the water wheel. Go up
the wheel repeatedly then go into a hole that will blast you straight
up. If done correctly, the game will freeze and there will be
two King Deedees facing each other.
Glitch: Break dancing Kirby:
Note: This requires some practice. Get a Sensor Bomb
and put it in the underground beneath the city (not the pitfalls).
Then, go to the entrance to the underground (the one closest to
the star pole that is yellow). Get off your vehicle and go just
where it starts to go down. At that location, go left onto the
yellow object and slowly slide off were it descends. You will
be sliding but not running. Run into the Sensor Bomb and you will
blow up spinning on the ground. Note: You may not be able to move.
