Level 16: Endurance Dojo - LittleBigPlanet

Endurance Dojo Level Badge

 

I Ace and collect all of the currently available single-player Goodies in the "Endurance Dojo" level. This was another level that took an awful amount of time to get a good recording of. Though I wouldn't call the level itself too difficult, there are multiple easy-to-fail sections in this level. (In particular, the sets of domino planks that you have to run over are infuriating. I think your left analog stick has to be nearly perfectly horizontal if you want to avoid falling.) Acing this level is one thing, but doing it whilst also collecting a few annoying Goodies (in addition to collecting as many Goodies as possible in general) elevates it to another level of challenge.

By the way, beware those moving nigirizushi (sushi) enemies. The horrible gas they emit is downplayed by their movement and they can deceive you into thinking you are at a safe distance when you actually aren't.

After I pass the longest (and last) set of domino planks, it may seem like I skipped or overlooked an area. I didn't, I just didn't bother traveling to the Cooperative Challenge area right now since I'm just doing single-player content in this recording.

 

Revisit: After getting the Japanese Samurai Sticker in "Sensei's Lost Castle" and the Japanese Stork Sticker in "The Terrible Oni's Volcano".

Now that I have the Japanese Samurai Sticker and the Japanese Stork Sticker, I quickly revisit the "Endurance Dojo" level to pick up the rewards from their respective Sticker Switches. Then, I cover the Cooperative Challenge (and its exclusive Goodies) for this level.

Even though it is quite easy, I really like the Cooperative Challenge for this level. At the least, I consider this one much more unique than the puzzles primarily focused on pressing Buttons and pulling Switches.

Special thanks goes to the random online players featured in this video. The male with the Cute Lion Ears goes by the PSN ID of lashams. The pink material female had a display name of Kathleen, but that's not her PSN ID and I don't know what it could be. My guess is that was probably playing LAN with lashams (as I imagine was the case for Luis in the videos with Luis and Daniel).
