Now head right, entering the massive red doors to enter into the final Boss
Fight! Bowser Jr. will revive his destroyed father before the battle even begins,
turning the bout into an unfair 2 vs. 1... if you were not the great Mario
anyway! Start out by concentrating on Baby Bowser, jump his charges,
forcing him to throw a Koopa shell for Mario to stomp and throw back,
followed by jumping onto his exposed stomach (though Fireballs really work
well here), getting three hits to finish him off. However, while taking
down this wily foe, remember that Bowser will be attacking with his blue
flames that will track Mario down, but luckily their range is very limited.
Once Bowser Jr. has been dispatched, it is time to take care of Bowser.
However, upon the defeat of scales and blood, Bowser will up the attacks,
sending out multiple flames at a time, including three blue homing flames at
once! Try to get in close to the monster, avoiding the flames (if the blue
flames come out, back and off let them dissipate), waiting for Bowser to
leap into the air to allow Mario to go underneath him and to hit the switch
that rests on the right side of the room. Note it is far easier to go under
him on the high leap, but it is possible to get under him on the small leap.
Note you need to be Super Mario or better for this strategy to work. As an
alternate strategy, it is possible to bounce off of Bowser Jr., flying right
into Bowser, getting hit to become invulnerable, using that invulnerability
to reach the switch, beating the level! Hit the switch to end the abduction, saving Princess Peach and ending the game!

Head right across the gaps while avoiding the Podoboos, reaching a door to
pass through, finding three bricks. Punch the center one to reveal a
?-Switch, which will flip the room to let Mario pass through the door that
was on ceiling (now on the ground), leading into a room to go up and to the
right through, passing Flamethrowers and a Dry Bone, entering the door near
a thin wall. In here Mario will find a Super Thwomp to pass underneath
after he draws it into attacking, followed by hitting the bricks to reveal a
?-Switch. Collect the Power-Up on the right before hitting the ?-Switch, flipping the
room again so Mario can go left underneath the Super Thwoimp again, passing
through the door to find another long set of Flamethrowers and a Dry Bones
to move past, fighting over to the left to find a solo brick that holds a
?-Switch. Now Mario will have to go back to the right, looking for a ledge
above (it is located above the area with the Dry Bones) to go up past more
Flamethrowers, entering the door. Head right past the three Thwomps,
turning left to hop over the spikes above to go get the first Star Coin,
followed by turning right to go down to get a Power-Up from a brick below a
Dry Bones.Head left from here, continuing to go downwards while smacking bricks,
revealing a ?-Switch to flip the room, allowing Mario to climb upwards to
pass under the Thwomp to reach the top. Mario will find a choice in path,
so go right and pass under another Thwomp to leap some spikes and a Dry
Bones, reaching a door. Leap onto the platform on the left to get up to a
door that leads to an empty room where running right along the floor will
get Mario a second Star Coin, followed by going up the stairs to get into
the door located at the top.
Head right to pass the halfway marker and to snag an Item, which is followed
by a set of platforms and such that have many routes across, but only one
correct way will allow Mario to advance (a classic style from the original
Super Mario Brothers castles in World 4, World 7, and World 8). So to
advance through this area, start out by taking the bottom path to hear the
success chime, followed by going along the top path in the next area, and
finally taking the middle path to clear this area.
Mario will have to leap across some small ledges ahead to find a couple
bricks to Ground Pound to destroy, followed by going over the lava pit to
take a running leap to the left underneath the ledge, attempting a Slide
Duck to go under the short bricks, reaching the final Star Coin in the game!
