If you see 7 gold pipes(castles 3 and 6) you have to jump on the person who looks different. If you see a long walkway with fire(castle 4) you have to jump on there shell when they are shooting fire but not when the shell is spinning. If you see a clown propellor (castle 8) you have to jump on the mecha koopas and throw them on bowser's head.
chocolate fortress secret
To get to the chocolate fortress, go to chocolate island 3( you must have the feather.) Climb the vine and go on the stone thingy. Jump over the exit and fly through another exit that leads to the chocolate fortress. (when you are battling the dinosaurs when you kill 2 go back 2 spaces and kill 1. Then jump on the thing the last dinosaur is on. When you have the chance, kill it put don't fall in the lava.)
defeating castles
U can tell how to defeat castles by looking at there battle station. If there is a lava pit(castles 1 and 7), u have 2 knock them in2 the lava pit. If u see 2 walls(castles 2 and 5), u have 2 jump on there shells 3 times when they r on the ground. If u see pipes(castles 3 and 6) u have 2 jump on the different person 3 times.

Easy 1ups
Go to the underwater level of star road. First, if you come with a yoshi you get an extra life when you pass the egg. Next get the star that is floating down and touch everyone you can as quick as possible. Do not go back for anything while in star mode. Third when you come upon the block with the second star, get that star and touch people again as fast as possible, once again not stopping or going back. If you hit enough people you will get a 1up life and if you hit someone soon enough after you get more 1ups. This lasts until the star runs out. You should be able to get 5-7 free lives at least.
EASY 6-10 1UPS
Go to world 6 level 2 and complete the secret level you unlock from there.
Go back to the secret level and get to the half point.

Then Pick LUIGI and go on the level starting at the half-point.
Go through the tube, and jump onto the slanted surface.

Then just sit down and enjoy the ride as you plow through all the shell things and get at least 6 1ups.

*Note(Note,Note's,Not): You can only get 10 1UPs if you hit all the shell things AND get your 100th coin on that run.

After you reach the bottom. press start and "back"

Repeat and enjoy
Easy Easy lives
Go to Yoshi island 2. Run up and pick up the shell jump and throw and if you kill all of the turtle things, you get a life. Keep going and hit all the blocks of the 3 blocks. Go to the 2 blocks, get Yoshi (if you have Yoshi you get a 1 UP!) keep going, collect the apples, they count as coins (100 coins = 1 life). After the football guy, you will pass the mid point, jump over the tubes, in the middle of the 3 blocks, there is a life (if you have Yoshi, if not its Yoshi) keep going, don't worry about killing, you will go to a place with a purplish apple, then a tube go down, don't worry about all of the boxes, just the 3rd one you will see will contain a life! (if you cant find, do all boxes, they have coins)then you come out like 5 feet from where you went in, so you didn't miss any lives. go over to where if you look up, you see a "P" (pound place) don't get the "P" thing, I think its a waste of coins, I know you can get the +40 stars, but you only get that, if you just jump and get the coins, dodge and (optional) kill the football guy, time your self just right, break the tape, get up to (this is kinda hard) 25 stars. Keep doing this and you will A. get life after life (5 lives {if you start with Yoshi} per time)and soon a bonus game where you jump, hit the moving blocks, try and get the picture to match with the middle,every pair of 2 (mabey 3, not really sure on that) you get a +1 life.
I earned 999 lives in one day doing this. I think its worth it.
Easy lives
Beat forest illusions 4 and then go back to that level and a Lukita on a cloud has a 1 up mushroom. Get it, press start, and go back. This is tedious but worth it.

Remember, you must beat the level first.
Extra Health
As you know, you have 1 HP as small Mario and 2 HP as normal Mario. However, if you are riding a Yoshi, you will technically have 3 HP. When you get hit on a Yoshi, it will not take health from you, but Yoshi will start to run away. When this occurs, simply catch up to him, and jump back on his back, and you are back to having 3 HP technically.
Fill in the blanks
You should know where the yellow switch palace is. To find the green switch palace, go to the underground level of donut plains. There will be 2 gold and 2 green tubes. You must be big.

You can go through the wall. Put the key in the keyhole. You filled all of the blancks(found the switches). Nice job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Flying with Yoshi
If you are Caped Mario or Luigi and you are on a yoshi who currently has the ability to fly, you can hold down the A button to make yoshi constantly flap its wings. This is so much easier than mashing the A button to keep yoshi in the air when you are regular, big, or fire mario/luigi

For the key in star world 4, either hit the green and red switch or bring a cape. If you didn't hit the switches, use red yoshi and eat a blue shell to fly to a place under the rocks to reach a land with a ? box and a keyhole. Use your cape to spin the ? box. If you did hit the switches, go to the part with stones. Take a shell and run left to fall on green blocks. Keep running right and use the shell to hit the ? box. Then put the key in the keyhole. For star world 5, hit the blue switch or all. With yellow yoshi, eat the blue shell and fly left and then up for some blue blocks. Or go to the part with a p thing and use a cape.

RED yoshi- Fire Flower mario/luigi. Can spit fire no matter what color shell is eaten. Can also fly when a blue shell is eaten
BLUE yoshi- Feather mario/luigi. Can fly no matter what color shell is eaten
YELLOW yoshi- Star mario/luigi. Stomps and creates "dust waves" when a shell is eaten

To get to the TOP SECRET AREA, you must go into the DONUT GHOST HOUSE with a cape. Then go up to the first hole and turn left. Next, run as fast as possible to the beginning, jump, and fly to the higher platform. You then run to the end and into the gap. In the gap, there will be 4 boxes-each containing an extra life. After you get them, go out the door. You will be at the end of the level. Finish the level and you unlocked the TOP SECRET AREA.

Now you can get fire flowers, feathers, a yoshi whenever you want! I hope I helped

Silent Castle
This is a minor glitch. All you have to do is enter a castle and just before the castle music changes key (it should be a long, single note), pause the game, and continue. There will be no music for a while, but it will replay when the music changes key.
Switch Glitch
When you are in the first castle, take the P switch to the fence.Kick it upwards and climb to where you kicked it.The switch should be inside Mario`s body.
World 'A' glitch
You need to have completed the game and found all the Dragon Coins to do this glitch. To do it, you need to be Cape Mario/Luigi riding a Yoshi.

First, go to Valley of Bowser 4, then hold Down and still holding it, press Select. Choose to go to Lemmy's Castle. The timing for this glitch can be difficult, but if you did it correctly you will walk offscreen. If you quit and thus save the game, it will say next to your file that you are in World A.

Now press Select while offscreen and try and view the levels in Special World. Owing to this glitch, there will be no options, but when you press A while offscreen, you'll enter an enemy-less version of Groovy. However, you will start below the ground, so jump off Yoshi to get above ground. Explore the level. However, it is impossible to complete as there is no bar on the finishing gate to break. The only way out of the level is to quit, thus saving the game. You'll be in the same spot on the world map again. Now press Select again and look at Special World's level list yet again, and then leave. You will be in World A - the Glitch City of the Mario series!

High Score Stars
A star will appear next to the Super Mario high-score (game selection screen) for every 1,000,000 points you earn in-game. The maximum is 5,000,000. After this no more stars will be awarded, but your high-score will still rise.
Lives Fast!
Go to the first level of forest of illision. get to the half way mark. next get the star out of the item box then speed through the rest of the level. you can pick up 10+ lives real fast!
lives+lots of star points=heaven!
ok, so to do this cheet,tip,thing you have to have star world. What you do is go to leavel "star world 3", get you'r yellow yoshi,hit the ! half o switch so the spiky guys cant get you,and run to the ending tape to get your star pts. keep doing this untill you dont want to. ( p.s. keep yoshi so the egg turns into a 1up )GOOD LUCK!!
More Life and Points
This is a great way to get points any where with koopas. First you must have the cape ability, then find a stupid koopa walking around. Stomp on it then kill the koopa but not with the shell!!
Get close to the shell and carry it to any tall wall and do that spinning thing that mario does. The shell should as close to the wall as possible, and if you do the spinning time correctely you can juggle the shell for high points and if you master it you can keep going until you start getting lives since high points also mean lots of 1up's.
Old Mario Music
Enter any of the special levels and remain on the world map. Leave the game idle until the music changes.
Opening Sequence Level
The level that features in the Super Mario World opening sequence (file select screen) is called "Groovy" and is located in the Special World.
Past the Goal Post (with Yoshi!)
Fact: If you break the tape at the end, you get Star Points. Fact: The higher the tape, the higher the Star Points.

But Here's something you don't know!

If you have Yoshi, then run toward the goal post. Just keep, running. Then, before, you go past it, jump, press R, and you'll jump high off Yoshi and through the goal post with a lotta star points. You won't lose Yoshi. In fact, while Mario/Luigi walks, he will jump right back on Yoshi!

(Note: This may require enough timing)
Replay Castles
When you defeat Bowser (final boss), you can replay all the castles to hunt for Dragon Coins etc.
Secret Boss Battle
There is a hidden boss battle in this game, which is located at the first ghost house. Search the level carefully and you will stumble across a door that takes you to a room where you get to have a fun battle with a large Boo. I won't give an exact description on how to get to it because it takes all the fun away from discovering it, like I had to.
SNES/Famicom Logo (Special World)
In the Special World, you can see a small yellow mark at the top of the screen. Use the 'L' trigger to scroll up to reveal the Super Nintendo/Famicom logo.
Soda Lake
This is a secret level located under the lower cheeze bridge. When you beat this level, it links to the warp star.

To get the level, you have to go to the level on the lower bridge. You must have Yoshi at the end before the goal. Now you muct glide under the goal and jump off Yoshi, which will now allow you to stand beyond the goal. Run farther to the right and it will reveal a second goal.
Special stage
Find the key and the key hole in Star World 5 to unlock a Special Stage with world names such as "Gnarly" and "Tubular".
Special World High-Score
Upon completion of the Special World, replaying Special World levels will allow you to record independant level high-scores.
tip - get up to 999 lives
thre is a top secret area, right on top of the ghost house in the world 2 you can get the flower and feathers any ime you want and every color yoshi depending on what you are, weak mario- red yoshi, big-yellow, flying- blue, but dont go for the yoshi until you get the feather to the right of it or else you wont get the blue yoshi.blue is thebest- eat any shell and you fly, also i hve a question,is there any easier way to get the 600 coins in the specail place in the first level where you can get father, i have come really close but i lways run out of time, any help?
top secret area
you havent lived until you unlock this.
to get it you must go to the donut ghost house with a cape and walk to the firt hole in the floor. turn so your facing left again and run fast. when you approach the beggining start flying then turn right and land on the higher floor pick up the key and unlock the hole. then you will unlock the secret area it has 5 boxes. if you enter as super mario/luigi there will be 2fireflowers on the left, a yoshi in the middle and 2 capes on the right.
Unlock Special Levels
To unlock the Special Levels, ot the Second Star Road as I call it, you must first go to Star World 5. The best way to complete this is to had gotten all the Switches that unlock the color blocks throughout the whole world.
Now start out the level with a cape, and make the pathway long and straight. Get a running start and keep flying near the top. You will eventually come to an opening with blocks and pipes. Make it to the end and put the key in the keyhole. A warp star will appear ontop the centre green pillar-thing in Star Road. Take it to the Special area, where you have some cool new levels to play in. One level I found quite hard, and it took me quite awhile to beat.
In the SNES version, beating all the levels would make the whole game another color, each time you beat the last level. But in this game it just takes you to the start.
Want Lives? You got em!
This is to be done in the Forest of Illusion 1. Basically what you do is come to the box with assorted power-ups. Get the star Power-up AND RUN AS IF YOUR LIFE DEPENDED ON IT! At the same time hit as many enemies as possible. You should start getting lives, at the end you should have goten about 20!

What's Cool in the GBA version Mario or Luigi depending on who you do it with will say a little comment!
