This is my first ever FAQ/Walkthrough I written on my own. I'm writing 
for this game, because it is definently one of the best instalments in 
the Mario series. This game puts all the old characters, and weapons, 
items, etc. Into an awesome RPG, but since nobody ever reads these 
sections, onto the FAQ.

~Battles~

Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga, is like any other RPG, you have to gain 
levels by fighting enemys. There are a lot of different combinations 
on how to fight. Solo, just one character will attack. Bros. attack 
Mario and Luigi will do a combination of moves in order to perform a 
stronger attack. To fight in a battle all you need to do is touch, 
jump, etc. to an enemy, and the battle will start. When in the battle 
you'll have a selection of Icons to choose from, they are as follows. 
Solo, Bros., Items, and Run. Below is an explanation of each...

Solo
To perform this all you need to do is press A, or B depending on which 
character is moving. Depending on which character your controling at 
the time they'll jump onto the enemys head, when this happens for extra
damage you can press A or B again depending on which character when 
your right above the enemys head. Also part way through the game you 
can use your Hammer to attack, doing more damage. All you have to do 
is when ever Mario or Luigi have the Hammer all the way back in front 
of the enemy press A, and they'll nail the enemy.

Bros. Attacks
To perform a Bros. attack have Mario or Luigi click on the Icon. When 
one of them does you'll be bring up a screen that shows the Bros. 
Attacks you have so far. When you obtain a new one, (On you journey). 
You'll get a long explanation on how to pul them off. In short they do 
way more damage then Solo attacks.

Items
To use items in battle click on the item Icon. It'll bring up your Item
screen, It will have all the Items you have found, been given, or 
bought throughout your Beanbean Kingdom journey.

Run
To run click on the Run Icon, and you'll flee from battle, but beware 
sometimes you won't be able to run, and It'll cost you one turn.

~Good Guys~

Mario
This short hard-working plumber is the smartest, and the strongest out
of the Plumbing Duo. He like Luigi is very proud of his moustache, 
Mario will stop at nothing to bring justice to order, even if death 
itself was staring in his face.

Luigi
This plumber is a lean High Jumping speedster. He enjoys long warm 
meals, (Excpecially cheese), and is a HUGE scardy cat. But when the 
time comes to be strong Luigi is on the case.

Peach
Is the most beloved in the Toadstool Kingdom. Also she is loved by the 
notorius Bowser, who is always planning on kidnapping her, so she'll 
marry him.

Bowser
Well he is good for this game, at least. Bowser is Mario's nemesis. He 
is big, fat, and well he's mean. He is always trying to kidnap Princess
Peach. But of course never suceeds because Mario is always there to 
pound him to the ground.

the best Mario bros. games ever. Anyway, you'll be at the title screen 
so click on one of the save files, and press new game. You'll go 
through the proluge, or story of the game. After that you'll be 
controling a toad from the Toadstool Kingdom. Now to find Mario, go 
straight to the bathroom. with is on the bottom floor to the left of 
your screen. The toad will have an exclamation mark above his head, and
then he'll say, "Hmm... I hear humming..." He'll then run into the
bathroom. Just to run right back out with his head huffy, and puffy, 
and well red. Then Mario will jump on the toad three times, untill the
toad will tell him Princess Peach... Well what is Mario waiting for 
he'll run to the drying clothes, and jump into them, only to 
automaticly have all his clothes on. Well he'll now run to the Castle, 
with Luigi right behind him being dragged along. When he gets there
Bowser is right in front of him, and Luigi hits Bowser from behind. 
Well that gets Bowser steamed, get ready for a one-on-one Boss battle.

This section is reserved for all those who have helped me in this 
guide, even just the tiniest bit, the contributor names will be posted 
clearly below. Also in a paragraph under the contributor names will be 
a paragraph of the people I would like to thank for making this 
FAQ/Walkthrough possible.

Gamer of the World --- For his Legal Disclamer, since I didn't feel 
like writing it myself.

First and foremost I would like to thank Jesus Christ my lord and 
Savior, also my friends for keeping me from just giving this project 
up. And last but not least, my dog, Ginger, I have no idea why.

~Final Word~

My Final Word is that all the FAQ writers out there should always keep 
there hopes up, and to never give up. Once your done you'll feel really
good about yourself for getting something accomplished, well at least I
did. Also for all you Mario bros. fans this is the game for you.

~About the Author~

My name is Jared Haslip, and I got interested in FAQ writing when my 
older friend Martin told me about www.GameWinners.com. I found that 
GameWinners advertises www.GameFAQs.com. So I checked it out, and found
tons of stratedgy guides written by people all over the world, plus 
there free of charge. It took me a while to get used to writing, 
finding all the information on how to wright the guides I could and 
with some help of my friends started writing some FAQs. 

~Updates~

This guide is planed to be updated monthly, fixing grammar errors, 
rewritng sections of the guide so they are more informational, etc.
