A Different Way to get Money
Tired of only getting a 2-coin profit from the Sleepy Sheep? Here's what you can do:

NOTE: You must have completed Bub-ulber's trouble. And have completed chapter 7.

1. Go to the hot-dog stand in Glitzville and buy as many as possible.
2. Go to Petalburg and trade the hot-dogs for dried bouquets.
3. Go on the train to Poshley Heights and sell them for a seven-coin profit!

It may take a little longer but it's worth it!

A really nice attack item.
This isn't to hard to make. First get 1 Mystic Egg, 1 Coconut and 2 Fire Flowers. Now, save your game and go see Zess T. Mix the Mystic Egg with one of the Fire Flowers. This will give you an Egg Bomb. Next, mix the Coconut with the other Fire Flower. This will give you a Coconut Bomb. Now, mix the Egg Bomb and the Coconut Bomb. This will give you a Zess Dynamite. Zess Dynamite does 7 damage to all enemies regardless of defenses.

Amazee Daisy, run or attack?
I found out that if you kill all the enemies with an amazee daisy, it will freak and run away. If you leave one other enemy alive with the amazee daisy, it will attack you. (20 hp down, watch out.) If you have less than 20 hp at the moment, either run away, or kill everyone. Or at least everyone but the amazee daisy.

Ancient Cookbook
To get the ancient cookbook so you can mix two items together and make one, first head off to the pipe that leads to Twilight Town. Once you enter Twilight Town, go to the Twilight Path (the path that leads to the Creepy Steeple), and follow it to the Creepy Steeple. Go into "Tube Mode" and roll into that little path carved at the bottom of the Creepy Steeple gate, and open the gate once you undo "Tube Mode". When you get into the Creepy Steeple, push up on the control stick until you come face-to-face with a wall. You should see a little tunnel, so go into "Tube Mode" again, and roll into the tunnel which leads you to a secret room. Open the chest, get the Ancient Cookbook, which allows you to mix two items to create one, get the star piece behind the furniture, hit the Shrine Sprite block to get a Shrine Sprite, and open the other chest to get the "Ice Smash" badge. You will need the Ancient Cookbook later on in a trouble, and it can be very useful. Continue the story from there.....

Are You Stylish For This?
This is how to get stylish... TWICE!!!
  • Jump
    To get stylish twice by jumping, get jump, jump on the enemy, press A to do the action command, then you will jump off the enemy and when you get as high as you can, press A to do stylish, then after you jump on him again, press stylish again.
  • Hammer
    To get stylish twice by hammering, get the hammer, and wait for the lights to flash, and right after you hit the enemy with the hammer, press A, you will do a backflip, then, when you reach the ground, press A again, a spotlight will show up and confetti will sprinkle down to your soul as you cheer.
    Congrats, you just mastered the double stylish jump!

    With a certain badge, you can! All you have to do is go into Rougeport Sewers. Slim through the bars and go into the pipe. Go down the stairs and slim
    through the barred door. You will see spikes rising up and down. Use Vivian as your partner. Use her ability every time the spikes come up. Keep doing
    this until you reach the end. Open the chest and....

    BEAT SHADOW QUEEN EA-Z!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Having a hard time with the Shadow Queen? If so look forward! You need: fully upgraded Goombella,Charge P badge,10 Ultra Shrooms,and a Power Plus badge! First get to the battles second verse second keep on using standard jump with Mario third when Goombellas turn charge (uses 1 FP) over and over and over. when you have 4 FP left use multi bonk with Goombella (uses 4 FP)and try keeping a long combo bonk. I say to Marios standard jump to weaken the Shadow queen making it easir to kill her. if your O.K. at jumping but better at hamering,hamering is also O.K. to weaken her but you need to use goombellas orderd stradegy! Use the Ultra Shrooms when on low
    HP and that goes for both mario and goombella! 70 HP is the least HP rec omended possible but I put in a lot concideration and used 95 HP. 35 is the least FP needed. I HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU!!!!!!!

    Boss: Hooktail:
    To easily defeat Hooktail, make sure you\'re wearing that Sound Badge that makes cricket noises, which is Hooktail\'s main weakness. Without it, she might stomp you in this battle... very easily. If you attack often while wearing this badge, her attack will go from 2 to 1 and her defense will go from 1 to 0. If she asks you things like \"Free Badge\" or \"A thousand coins\", say no; she\'ll fool you and chomp you, so be careful.

    Change your yoshi's colors
    This is so you can change the color without making the name colors. Save right before the battle when you get your yoshi 9e one right before the major leaque). Go into the next battle. Run from the battle. If the Yoshi isnt the color you want reset, go buy something, and then do it all over again. Repeat untillyou get the color wanted.

    Charge a lot while fighting bosses
    While fighting bosses, the easiest way to defeat them is to Charge a few times then Power Bounce.

    An even faster way of doing this is to upgrade Goombella to Ultra Rank so that she knows how to use Rally Wink. Charge with Mario and use Rally Wink with Goombella so that Mario can charge again. This makes charging up attack power require half the amount of turns.

    Mario likes which person the most?

    After you beat chapter 2, you will need to go see Don Pianta to get a blimp ticket to go to Glitzville. Instead of paying the Robos a ton of money to figure out the way to see him, do this - go to the shop on the very west side of town, buy a dried shroom, and then a dizzy dial. The shopkeeper will first ask "What color is your mustache?" Answer yellow. Then she'll say "Oops, wrong question." She'll then ask you what's your favorite color. Answer yellow again. Then go through the door on the left of the shop.

    Easier Way to Beat the Shadow Queen
    The Shadow Queen is very difficult, and you may find yourself battling her for ages. A tip, is to stock up with 4 Lightnings, and 6 Ultra mushrooms. This way, when she gets her arms back you can attack all of her, and if she leaves you with barely any energy then you can recover!

    I also suggest you have maximum HP, and FP, and use Vivian as an ally !

    easiest way to kill grodus, bowser and kammy koopa
    OK you will need

    Full HP SP & FP
    Vivian and bombery powered up at least once
    70-99 star points

    Grodus

    OK first get Vivian to do fiery jinx his barrier will disappear
    and Mario will use art attack.
    Do this for the first 2 turns.
    Next keep using fiery jinx,
    Mario will use power smash.
    its better if you do action commands and guard commands.
    when he shoots a ray of blue fiery tap B as fast as you can
    he should die.

    you will get a level up.

    Bowser and kammy koopa

    Same as with grodus for Vivian and Mario
    except only use art attack on kammy koopa. its best to kill her first because she can maximise her and bowsers lives.
    bowser is easier when he bites you its super easy to press B.
    so the only thing that is acually bad is when he jumps. he will take something like attacks or hammer so you can`t use it for 2-5 turns.


    but overall they are easy. Oh and bombery is incase Vivian dies.

    thankyou.

    Easy method of beating the Shadow Queen
    This is the easiest way I know of to kill the Shadow Queen. Buy as many Boo's Sheets as you can carry (but it wouldn't hurt to have an Ultra Mushroom, for backup.) They can be found on the Excess Express shop for 20 coins each. Equip yourself with the Charge and Power Bounce badges, then go to battle. During your turn, charge up and let your partner use Boo's Sheets on you. It doesn't matter if your partner dies-they're not important. When your supply of Boo's Sheets run out, use Power Bounce. You can easily deal over 100 damage in one turn this way. (This trick will also work with Goombella's Multibonk.)

    Easy way to beat the Shadow Queen
    Ok, I've beaten the Shadow Queen twice, so I know what good tips are to kill her.
    Before you go to the Thousand Year Door, stock up on Ultra Shrooms and about 2 Life Shrooms, don't fill yourself though, there are some ultra and life shrooms in the thousand year door. And it never hurts to bring fighting items. The best partners to use are Admiral Bobbery and Vivian, so level them up! Be sure to use pretty lucky, close call, peekaboo, lucky day, and some other use full badges. When the Shadow queen attacks you, it is extremely hard to attack her back, so just press A and save a few lives. With this you should be able to easily beat the shadow queen.

    Easy-ish Pit of 100 Trials
    this trip takes nearly 2 1/2+ hours. on each level, the enemies get harder. and if you go in there more than once, the order they are placed in every 10 levels will vary. movers will be "moved" from their place to a whole new place.
    anyway, stock up on zess deluxes (either mix a golden leaf and whackabump together, or mix a shroom steak and a healty salad together. shroom steaks are mixes of life shrooms and turtley leafs. healthy salads are turtley leafs and horsetails. even more recipies can be found over Google.) you should probably have 10 zess deluxes. the problem is, you have no more room for items! well, simply go to lv 50 of pit of 100 trials and get the item that lets you hold 20 items. now, stock up on 5 zess dynamites. (great for in lv 90 with those golden dozen fingered floating freaks.) also, ahve 5 life shrooms. (you ARE going to die at least once, unless you're like lv 50 ranked or something.)
    once you get to bonetail, you should have had all your partners (or at least the better ones,) ranked to ultra ranks (powered up twice.) when fighting bonestail, he will heal himself of 20hp twice, so basically you're dealing with 240hp with a guy with 2 missing attacks. (his turn is wasted healing himself.) now, simply use power smashes and either use bobbery's bomb attack or use ms. mowz love slap (both cause 4hp.) just be sure to NEVER use yoshi, none of his attacks work.

    Finally! Bonetail and the Prize of the Pit of 100 Trials
    Bonetail Info
    200 HP
    Attack: 8
    Defense: 2
    Bonetail is the boss at the bottom of the Pit of 100 Trials, and as you would expect, he\'s rather tough. His stats don\'t lie... he\'s a more powerful foe than even the Shadow Queen herself... But he\'s still not too bad. Bonetail is like a beefed up Gloomtail, so expect lots of stomps, chomps and breath attacks, the difference being this time, instead of Poison Breath, Bonetail has breath that can freeze, confuse, shrink, or put you to sleep. Since most of his attacks only affect the front character, Mario can stay in the back and use another character as a meat shield. Flurrie works well for this, since she can keep recovering HP with Lip Lock. Of course, you can and should switch your partner often to utilize all their HPs, especially if you have the Quick Change Badge equipped. When Bonetail\'s HP gets to 50, he\'ll heal 20 HP, and he may do this again throughout the course of the battle, but at this point you should be able to beat Bonetail down. Seriously, the last 10 levels of the Pit were more difficult than Bonetail himself.

    Return Postage
    7 BP
    500 Coins
    Received after beating Bonetail on Floor 100 of the Pit of 100 Trials.
    Gives Mario \"Counter\" status permanently, so he damages enemies that directly attack him for 1/2 the damage they cause.

    Get a Jabbi on your side in Chapter 2!
    I did this on accident when I was exploring the hidden shop in the great Boggly tree, but here:

    During Chapter 2 when you find the hidden shop in the tree(Pungent's Shop). Go to the very back/end of the shop (the left side). You will see some white tree stump like things. Go behind there and Jabble will pop out! Choose not to beat him up and he will join you.

    He is not added to your Puni army number in the bottom of the screen, and no special thing happens. He doesn't ever talk, and he helps you fight the other Jabbies! He is also at the end of the chapter when all the Punies are saying good Bye to Mario. He doesn't say anything there either.

    Get through the Pit of 100 trials easily!
    To get through the Pit of 100 Trials is easy! All you have to do is buy 10 life shrooms. Now, if you die you will regain a life automatically as you know. Begin your battles at the pit and reach the 50th floor. Here, open the treasure chest and grab the item inside. This item allows you to hold 20 items instead of 10. Exit the pit and buy life shrooms until you can't carry any more items. Now go down the pit and battle.

    Getting Money Easily
    Once you've gotten to PetalBurg in the First Chapter you can use a trick to make easy money.
    1) go to RougePort and buy as many sleepy sheep as you can carry, making sure to fill up your storage box aswell. When your pockets and storage box is full, head over to PetalBurg.
    2)Once at Petalburg, go into the Item Shop to sell your sleepy sheep for a 2 coin profit per sheep. Make sure you remember to withdraw and sell all the sleepy sheep you stored. To increase productivity, on the way back to rougueport, stock up on turtley leaves, again filling up the storage box, and sell them at the item shop where you picked up the sleepy sheep to gain 2 coins per leaf.

    Here's another tip....

    Once you get Taste T. you can cook the leaves into koopa tea for an extra 1 coin per leaf

    Gold Bullet Bill/blaster Help
    Here are some tips on beating golden bullet bills and their blasters:

    •Find a position where you can walk between the pair of bullet bills
    •get as close as you can to the launcher without battling it
    •face the other direction of the launchers
    •do a spin hammer thingy
    •you will attack it with ultra hammer attack without using FP
    •have bobbery or flurrie out
    •You must master counter-attacking (hit B before they hit you)
    •If you can counter-attack well,ignore the bullets and go for the bulet blasters with mario's hammer or bobbery's bomb attack
    •if you dont do well in counter-attacking,then it will be 2x harder,but try using flurrie or goombella to take out a bullet and try hard to block the other bullet,but use mario's hammer to hitt the bullets.

    ••Don't use your yoshi,he doesnt hit,only gulps and eggs••
    ••if all else fails,use Earth Tremor or SuperNova••

    Under shine sprite in Glitzville - nothing

    When you first see a Punie, go straight down from the hole, to the wall and jump - Badge

    In Fahr Outpost in the area with the pipe, jump in front of the trees until a box apears - Badge

    In Boggly Wood, in the area that you have to push the blue button to raise the airplane panel, go to the button spot and about half way down keep on jumping until a box appears - Badge.

    LEVEL UP!
    There's an easy way to level up but can take alot of time. First you have to have about 3 or 4 ultra shrooms and 3 or 4 jam n jelly and also 2 life shrooms. You can purchase the ultra shrooms (50hp) and jam n jelly (50fp) at the item shop near the east side of the sewers. The life shroom can be purchased at the item shop in west rougeport. You can always purchase them by selling a few badges. Badges can be sold for alot of coins but it depends how rare they are. Well anyway once you have your items equip two power plus badges to make this alot easier. Once you have everything enter the pit of a 100 trials. Once entered theirs no way out until the levels you reached are at 10,20,30 etc... untill you fight Bonetail (200HP, 2DF, 8AT) Dont worry he's not as hard as he seems as long as you have the items I told you to get. After you beat every enemy in the trials, once you come out you'll have at least increased 6 levels. An you can keep repeating this process but remember the more levels you increase the less star points some enemy's will give. Well good luck, it was a pain in the *** but it was worth it, right now my level in the game is 49

    Level-up Madness!
    This is an extension of "Super Easy EXP on Keelhaul Key" submitted by Kale.

    What you do is when you are at the Glitz Pit and battling "The Fuzz"(Which is the battle with a Fuzzy, a Green Fuzzy, and a Flower Fuzzy), you kill the Flower Fuzzy with a Power Stomp in one hit, then have your partner kill the regular Fuzzy. Now the Green Fuzzy will most likely split in two. If he doesn't, then just do a regular jump on him to get him down to 1 HP after he attacks. Keep in mind to NOT follow Grubba's(The tubby guy that you fight to get the Crystal Star) directions so you can keep on battling these guys. Also, DO NOT KILL THIS FUZZY! Just weaken him to where he will die with just one of your attacks. Keep appealing or defending until the Green Fuzzy splits in two. Now, wait until there are 3 on the field. Kill one, and notice that you get 5 Star Points! Try to always have at least two on the field at the lowest HP possible without them dying, and repeat this. Keep on doing this until you get 100 Star Points.(Sadly, this is the most you can get in one battle.) You will grow a level. You can keep on doing this, but next battle, the Star Points are 4 for killing a Green Fuzzy. The battle after, it's 3, after is 3(I think), after is 2.(That's the farthest I went.)
    Hope this helped, and happy Level-ups!

    problem with bosses in chapter 8?
    okay. when you're trying to defeat Grodus, he's pretty easy. bobbery is the most useful partner. start it out with a earth tremor attack, getting rid of all the grodus-x's. he'll make 2 grodus-x's, so have mario bounce (just normal bounce!!) on one of his grodus-x's and then have bobbery bomb on him. slowly but surely his life will chip away.

    this guy ticks me off. when your in battle with him,
    get rid of that old hag (Kammy koopa) and after she's gone, the rest of the battle's a piece of cake. if you keep dying, just go back to rougeport, sell some of your badges till you have at least 800 coins. go to the sunken city underground and buy 4 ultra shrooms. go back and fight and you'll definetly win. (when fighting the shadow queen, just get as many more ultra shrooms as you think you need. don't worry, getting back to the shadow queen isn't hard at all, just takes awhile!) i hope i helped! no i really do!

    Secret Story
    First, You must obtain Yoshi. Then, go to Rouge Port and go to where the Proffesors house is. Ride on him and continue right. Have it *Float* you to the other side of the street that is not connected to the town. Then, jump up the boxes and then go ontop of the house. Ride on Yoshi again and *Float* to the other house. Continue on right and then you'll meet a guy. He tells you parts of the legendary story on how the demon was imprisoned. Each part costs 5 gold (I think) to see.

    Super Easy EXP in Keelhaul Key
    After you beat chapter 4, you go to the Island, Keelhaul Key. When you start to explore, go fight a green fuzzy. Tattle with Goombella if you haven't already, and then attack some of them. When there are one or two left, DON'T KILL THEM.

    Let them multiply so you can get 3 EXP for each one you destroy, and if you let them keep multiplying, they'll add up to a lot of EXP. I got 33 just from one fight!

    But this will only work if you're just at chapter 5, because if you're too strong, they won't give any EXP and you only get one for the whole battle.

    Super FP item!!!!!
    This thing is called inky juice. (you can't get this until you finish poshley heights). now, to get this item you need hot sauce, lengendary book, and a turtley leaf.
    1.Hot sauce: Go to Glitzville. Now look for the blue rat with a breifcase. (you need to finish the trouble "Buissnessman: Security code" to do this).
    Talk to him, and he'll say "sit in any good chairs lately?" then he'll say "you want some hot sauce?" say "hot sauce me!!" PS: you have to pay 10 coins I think.
    2.Turtley leaf: Just go to petalburg and go to the Mayors house and go in the fence and shake the bush!
    3.Lengendary book: If you dont already have this book for Zess T. that lets you cook 2 items, Do the trouble "Seeking lengendary book!", and bring it to Zess.

    COOK THE HOT SAUCE AND TURTLEY LEAF AND YOU GOT INKY JUICE!! (replenishes 30 FP)

    Two ways to level up
    The first way to level up, is in Glitzville after you get the Crystal Star, and rank up all the way to champ. Using the small Yoshi is really good here. Just use the Power Lift star power most of the time you will get one more attack than defense. Always block his attacks and you can get a flawless win. After that use soft stomp, and he will get smaller, then you won\'t get hurt. Always use the Yoshi\'s ground pound and do 4,5(at rank 1),or 6 (at rank 2). Then use any of Mario\'s moves that don\'t need FP. You get from 9-15 star points. Then, at the end you get 20 coins because you did what the owner asked, which is always use one special move.


    The other way takes longer, but gets you more Star Points. You need to be able to go to the moon. Just go through the whole level. that should get you 1-3 levels for sure.

    Doesn\'t matter which one you use, but one is shorter and less SP, and the other takes longer and you get more SP, but they are both leveled out.

    Unlimited Cash in the Palace of Shadow
    This is the easiest way to get unlimited coins. Forget about making and selling Shroom Frys, this is the real deal. In the Palace of Shadow, there is a hall with spinning fire bars. When you see one, stand close to it and jump right before it burns you. Repeat. After about 7 jumps, it'll explode into several coins. (You'll know you're doing it right when it starts to spin faster.) When they are all used up, leave the area and then come back-the fire bars will be reset.

    Note: This trick also works in the N64 version of Paper Mario.

    Yoshi colours: In Detail
    Want your Yoshi a certain colour? The key to getting a certain colour is TIME.

    Here's how it goes. From the moment you get the egg to when it hatches determines what colour your Yoshi is. I only know three definate timings, but there are several inbetween.

    For a White egg, you have to get to the 11th rank and lose to the Iron Bros. in less then half a minute. For a black egg, the time "limit" is a minute. For a green egg, you can take your time: six minutes or over give you this coloured Yoshi. Wether matches are included I'm pretty certain they aren't, but I've been wrong before.

    How desperate you are for the "right" egg is determined by how many times you save. A good idea is to speed through and save it before the match. If you get a White or Black egg, I cheer you loudly. If not, you won't be able to gain that extra time back to get those eggs. However you can experiment to see what colours you end up with. This way you can reset the game as often as you like to get the colour you want without having to name your save file "Yellow"

    5. Power up Ms. Mouz to max.

    6. Have her as a partner ONLY.

    First, Go to the Creepy Steeple once you freed all of the boos. Go into the main hallway and stand in the middle. All of the boos will start to wrap around you. Do your Super Hammer attack to shake them off. Repeat one more time. They will get angry and form a gigantic boo. Once you are done fighting it, it will leave a badge named "Lucky Start". This badge makes something good happen before a battle.

    Cheating the lottery
    WARNING: PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK!

    This is the only crime you can committ in the Paper Mario game. What you do is reset the gamecube clock to the next day. However, if you do this again the second time in one shot, Lucky catches you and besides busted, you're off to paying 500 coins as a fine for cheating the lottery. Well, I've done this before...

    Cheating the lottery and not having to pay a 500 coin fee!
    The best way, of course, to try and win the lottery is to not set foward the Clock. instead, follow these instructions:

    #1 make sure you havent looked at the board on the day your on.
    #2 make sure you save near the happy lucky lottery place, i prefer where the train and blimp is. there is a save block there.
    #3 go to the happy lucky lottery area, and look at the board, it will say a number.
    #4 if not satisfied, press the reset button on your gamecube.
    #5 you will start back at the place you saved.
    #6 go back to the board, and read it again.
    #7 it will have a different number.
    #8 keep trying this techneque. you will eventually get what you want. but all numbers are still hard to get. best of all, there is no fine. no paying 500 coins. no getting the bulky bomb-omb furious. thanks for looking.

    Danger Mario
    Make it so that Mario is in the danger position (5 hp or less), then equip him about 20 Power Rush badges, and with badges that attack all enemies, like Fire Drive and Multibounce. And be sure to KEEP him in the danger position. With this setup, Mario can kill almost all enemies in a single hit. For enemies such as fire enemies, or Chain Chomps, or enemies of that sort, whom your regular attacks might not work on, use an attack item, or a star power attack. And just to be on the safe side, bring a few life shrooms with you. This setup makes alot of parts of the game, including the Pit of 100 Trials, really easy.

    defeating the shawdow queen
    sorry for any spelling mistakes I am kinda new to this.
    1.-Have Hp 100 or higher
    2.-Have Fp 20 or higher
    3.-Have Bp 15 or 21
    4.-Your items should be...
    4 ultra shrooms
    1 thunder rage
    1 shooting star
    1 earthquake
    1 ice storm
    1 honey syrup
    and a boo sheet
    5.-Have the badges
    UNSIMPLFIER
    ICE SMASH
    SPIKE SHEILD
    POWER SMASH
    MULTIBOUNCE
    HP GIVER (THE ONE THAT GIVES YOU HP EVERY TURN)
    HP GIVER FOR YOUR PARTNER
    AND ALL ATTACK FX ON (IT SOUNDS BETTER)
    6.-First make sure that Goombella and Koops only have 1 sun thingy by there name
    The rest of your partners must have 2 for more power and better attacks
    7.-After you have defeated Princess Peach's form and the demon comes out of and says you can't kill her than just use earthtremor. After the crystal stars go back to the towns they came from Peach revies you. Use super nova 3 times, once at the beginning again when she is at 75 and then at the end when she only have 15-12 hp left.
    8.- Put Goombella out first and use tattle and put all of your partners in front of you. Puy Vivan out, kill her hands with fiery jinx but when she powers up then use veil or she will take 14-16 hp away
    9.- if you star power is low DON'T use appeal always get stylish moves it's faster.
    10.-Try to get a lot of bingo's to revie your stuff. Never get poinous mushrooms it takes 1/2 of everything
    Note: the shadow queen only gives you 1 star point and if you leave the palace of shadows the bullet bill thingys will come back and you have to defeat them again

    good technique to defeat bowser and grodus
    alright we will start off with grodus, leader of the x-nauts. well first of all he has 50 hp and one defense point. he will make grodus x's come up.if four come up they will make a shield.start by attacking the grodus x's so his shield comes down. Now use art. Go on like this (except dont use art) until he is finished. make shure to keep the other grodus x's at bey all the while.

    Now its bowser and kammy koopas turn. Well, first kammys hp is 50 and bowsers is 70. First wail on kammy because she will heal herself and bowser. This will take awhile but when its over then bowser is easy. no real biggee if you have the spike protection badge equiped. Just pound the heck out of him with you and your partner (it doesnt really matter who you have out). after the battle grodus runs away with peach. dont be worried about the next room. it has a save point and a health block!

    Lottery Cheating without the Gamecube clock reset
    heres easy steps to a happy lucky result in the lottery without using the Clock Reset Cheat. it\'s also better in the way that you don\'t need anything but a valid ticket, and you won\'t have to buy a new one.

    step 1: save using the save block near the lottery corner, on a day you haven\'t checked the boards number yet.

    step 2: go to and look at the number on the board, if it\'s not good enough, go to step 3, otherwise, you are done.

    step 3: DO NOT SAVE AT THIS POINT. just simply reset the gamecube by using the reset button on the Gamecube hardware, itself. no need to change the time, or anything.

    step 4: it should automaticly go to the health percautions screen. go through to your file, and open it.

    step 5: you should be at the save box mentioned earlier that you saved at. go to the board.

    step 6: read the board again, and it will have a different number. if still not good, repeat steps 3-6. if it is a winning number, you have won something! congrats!

    Perpetual Over-limit!
    This is an extension of the 'Danger Mario' cheat submitted by Morton Koopa Jr.

    For this cheat to work, you must lower Mario's maximum HP to 5 by paying Chet Rippo to increase his FP or BP and lower his HP. With 5 HP maximum, Mario will always be in 'Danger', and badges like Power Rush will always take effect.

    This strategy has the advantage of allowing you to heal Mario without going over 5 HP and out of 'Danger', and eliminates the need to damage him to reap 'Danger' benefits.

    Stylish Moves
    This wasnt posted yet from what I saw but IF you time your stylish moves at the right time, you can pull off FOUR stylish moves with one attack. For instance when you have Koops do his Shell Toss and make him spin on his back, towards the last two rotations he does as he slows down you hit A again and he will jump up,wink, and point at the crowd. You can do double stylish on every charecter with every move if you time everything just right, hope that helps =P

    talk to the badge dealer in Rogueport every day until he sells W something. When you equip it, you will look like Wario.

    To get Luigi clothes,
    go to the giant museum in that place that you have to take the train to get to. Go to the giant room with the Pink Boos. Use the same tactic that you used to get the pipe in the first room. Soon you will see a badge. It is called L something. When you equip it you will look like Luigi.
