Tips

Back to top

1-UP trick

If you have Mailtoad on Starship Mario in more than one save file, you can do this trick. If you save and quit one file and go the other, Mailtoad should give you a letter with all the 1-UPs you had in your previous file when you saved. If you save and quit that file and go back to your previous one, you should get all 1-UPs the other file had.

For example, you quit File 1 with 12 lives and went to File 2. There you received a letter with 12 1-UPs from File 1. Adding to the original 4, you now have 16 lives. If you quit File 2 and go back to File 1, you should receive 16 1-UPs. You can do that endlessly. However, you will not receive the letter if you go twice to the same file without alternating.

99 1-ups

first go to the super massive galaxy in world 4. click on the first mission, huge trouble with huge wigglers. Then go to the part with 3 giant koopa troopas. destroy 2 of them, then do a triple jump to get on the last one's back (shell), once you are on his shell hold forward on the control sick and you will start to bounce, and after a few bounces it will start giving you 1-ups. It will keep adding 1-ups until you reach 99 of them, then hold back on the control stick to get off. Then finish level and then save it

Easiest Way through Pull Star Planet in The Perfect Run

In the pull star planet in The Perfect Run, some of you people have been losing alot, getting hit by the electric rays. Well, there is an easier way, that lets you go right over the rays. First, grab a pull star. Let go, and go down at least five inches, then pull the pull star again. Let go of the pull star still going up before you get in the spot where the pull star is whne you aren't using it, and you'll go up into the air, then pull another availible, which will make you go over an electric ray. If you use this tip, you'll get through the level in less deaths.

Extra Starbits

I found a wonderful way of collecting extra starbits.
In any stage you see a butterfly or a Luma, have your friend (or just grab the second wii remote) and activate Co-Op mode. Have your Luma friend grab and spin the Lumas and the butterflies. You will get 3 starbits from them.

In any you see Luigi, have your Luma friend spin him. You will get a bunch of starbits.

You can do this as many times as you want once you leave the stage and come back.

How to get the first green star at the cyclone stone galaxy.

If you have been trying to back flip and spin as a means to get this star stop. Instead using Mario, run up a ways on the path that leads more into the level, than do a triple jump, and at the height of the third jump spin and get the star. This may take a few tries but it works.

More Air Underwater

I`m sure you all know of those plant type things with the bugging eyes under water that try to attack you, well instead of just shining light into their eyes with a sell, and getting star bits. Shoot them twice each with a star bit and you will get a coin for each one, pretty handy for getting air in the Slimy spring galaxy when needed if the plants are around.

Star Bit Farming

The second mission of the Melty Monster Galaxy has a great number of star bits you can grind until you reach 999 star bits. Two ways: Either have a lot of lives, or just grab the 1up every time.

When you go in to do the second task with the strongest Pianta tournament under way. Head up the same hill as the hut 1-UP and there will be a Pianta there, talk to him and he will throw you, and you will collect a 1-UP in the air while being thrown, pretty cool.

Three methods to get Bowser Jr.'s Fiery Fotilla Green Star 1

There are three methods to get green star one on Bowser Jr.'s Fiery Fotilla. I'll tell them from hard to easy.

Hard Method
I name it: Wall Jump to the Left and do your next wall jump!
Now, go over to the left where the switch to open up that big door is. Go to the left and jump. Wall jump to the left to another wall, and wall jump again. Then spin back onto the platform. Then go across the big top of the castle to get to the green star.

Medium Method
I name it: Onto the Statue
Have you seen the bowser jr. statues? Backflip on the top of them into the center, the backflip+spin and wall jump+spin on to the top of the castle and go over to the green star.

Easy Method
I name it: Thwomp's Big Jump
Go over to the thwomp and backflip+walljump+spin onto the thwomp. Wait for it to go up then backflip+spin+walljump+spin onto the top of the castle. Then go to the green star.

There you go, three methods to get the green star!

You can use these methods to get to Green Star 2 ( While on top of the castle long jump to the planet with Green Star 2, or just long jump to the sling star <img src="http://i.neoseeker.com/d/icons/smile.gif" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" /> )

Unlimited Star Bits

On Yoshi Star Galaxy on the first level (saddle up with yoshi), get as many
S-bits as you can, then use the launch star and fly past the volcano. When it erupts, collect all the S-bits. On the next planet, DONT get the flag.
Launch to the next planet and kill yourself using a spiky plant. Repeat as many times as you like to get unlimited S-bits.

X-tra star bits

If you notice on many beach-ish galaxies, there are these footprints popping around in the sand. If you get right next to them, then spin, some creature will pop up, dizzy. Before it loses its dizziness, spin, jump, or walk right up to it to make it EXPLODE with star bits. *There is always another after the first one.

Die In Credits

After you beat the game the credits will roll. Well, if you are Mario (Luigi works too) wait until you see the Bee Mushroom. Run and grab it.

Now, wait until you are at the snowy background in the credits. Triple-jump and continue to flutter using the Bee Suit and you will die, but the credits will continue to roll.

Infinite Bonus Stage Tine

You know every Bonus Stages last a short time, right? WRONG! Here is why. Go to Throwback Galaxy. Choose Star 2 (Silver Stars in Whomp's Fortress). Now go to the area where the Thwomps are. Grab a Cloud Flower there. Fun Part: Go to the area where the 2 fences meet (The Same area where you are now). Do 2 long jump-spins. The camera SHOULD be behind you showing the Bonus Stage. The Bonus Stage is set to the right. Do 1 more long jump-spin. Do a regular jump and you should be there. Now you can defeat EVERY enemy and get the 3 1UPs in any time you want. To exit, just jump off the platform and you will be back. Try this for the Unlimited 1UP Glitch. Now you have finished the glitch. Have Fun.

Fast battle with Peewee Piranha

You know how you have to do one excact thing (spinning Peewee Piranha's egg three times and running around the planet and spinning at Peewee's butt two times) to beat Peewee Piranha? WRONG!

To beat Peewee Piranha even faster, you have to skip the cutscene at the beginning. Do a long jump+spin over Peewee Piranha and ground pound his egg. You will have to try to hit Peewee quickly before he runs and then wait. Skip the cutscene. Backflip over Peewee and then pound his egg. Quickly again hit his butt before he runs and then you're finished. You will beat him in 12 seconds or less. The fastest you can beat him with this strategy is 9 seconds.

Hidden star at the Boo Moon Galaxy.

In the purple sea, when riding the purple moving blocks, ignore the launch star at the end, and the blocks will keep going. Be careful because it becomes more difficult to navigate their movements. Ride them to the end and there will be a hidden star just sitting in the air, jump and collect it quickly.

The 1-UPs of Starship Mario

Starship Mario has a LOT of hidden 1-UP mushrooms. These are as many as I could find in one go:

WHAT YOU NEED: Yoshi

Backflip onto Mario's nose. Yoshi's egg is on top. Break it, and use Yoshi's tongue to get to the secret island. Eat all the fruits, and you get a 1-UP.

WHAT YOU NEED: Cloud Flower

Get the Cloud Flower on Starship Mario, which is right in front of the ship's wheel. Now, run to the opposite side without touching water. Backflip up, then long jump away from Lubba. There is a cloud with a 1-UP, floating in midair.

WHAT YOU NEED: 100 star bits

Deposit 100 star bits to the Mailtoad.

WHAT YOU NEED: Peach's letter

Get five 1-UPs in a letter from Peach.

WHAT YOU NEED: Both the gold and silver Gearmo

Both Gearmos will be visiting Starship Mario. They sit at the table with the teapot and cups. Talk to both of them, and they will each give you a 1-UP mushroom.

WHAT YOU NEED: The Chance Cube

Spin the Chance Cube for the opportunity to get a 1-UP! You can also make arrangements with the Lumas in the green pipe, right in front of Mario's right ear.

WHAT YOU NEED: Access to the Starshroom

Eventually, the Toad's ship, the Starshroom, will be floating a slight distance away from Starship Mario. Since the Starship has its own center of gravity, you can't reach it by long-jumping. Just use the transporter in front of Mario's left ear, and there will be a 1-UP.

The Secrets of Starship Mario

Well, we all love Starship Mario, and here's two cheats you can use to make the best out of your time there.

SECRETS OF THE ENGINE ROOM

WHAT YOU NEED: Mario or Luigi; access to the Engine Room.

On the same platform as the ship's wheel, there is a smokestack belching pink and yellow smoke and stars. Do a backflip and land on the rim of the smokestack. Zoom in, and you will hear the Engine Room. Now, step forward. Your character will become rigid, and you will hear the pipe sound.

Now you've fallen into the Engine Room through the secret way!

INFINITE LIVES

WHAT YOU NEED: Mario AND Luigi; the Chance Cube

There's a Chance Cube on the underside of Starship Mario, near the fence. Spin it. If you get a 1-UP, take it. If you need another 1-UP, quickly change into the other Bro. The Chance Cube will be there again. Repeat, using the cheat that gets you the 1-UP 90% of the time!
