I. INTRODUCTION

This guide was written by Akerin on March 2, 2006.  This is the first FAQ that
I have made, so feel free to send comments or questions to me.

Super Princess Peach is a role reversal of sorts, taking the character of Mario
and replacing him with Peach.  I absolutely adore the game, so naturally I felt
obligated to contribute at least something to an FAQ.  I hope you enjoy it and
the game!

Please note that the difficulty ratings that each boss has is based on a
beginner’s ability to defeat them.  An experienced gamer will definitely find
most of the bosses pretty easy, but this is for the inexperienced gamer.

=======================================================================

II. BOSS GUIDE

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
A. PETEY PIRANHA
World		: 1-6 Ladida Plains
Difficulty	: Medium
Attacks		: Sonar Blast; Spit; Sand Blast; Jump
Description	: Petey Piranha is a long-time enemy of Mario and friends, having
first appeared in Mario Sunshine.  He has since made appearances in Mario Kart
Double Dash and Mario & Luigi 2: Partners in Crime.  He’s a powerful piranha
plant that has a bad habit of spitting random objects.

Petey Piranha starts off the battle by swallowing the lone Toad and it’s
Peach’s duty to save him!  After the scene, immediately run to the plants in
the ground and use the GLOOM vibe to make them grow into stalks.  Be careful,
because Petey will spit out Nipper Plants, which will attack you.  Jump onto
the leaves and wait for Petey to do his sonar blast attack (which knocks you
backwards) and his sand blast (which flings sand at you).  Then, once Petey
opens his fat mouth, use GLOOM to cry and have the tears drown him.  He’ll
eventually fall backward and his belly button will glow.  Jump on it to
deteriorate his HP.

Once Petey is down to 2 HP, he’ll turn red and start jumping around.  He’ll
also spit out more enemies, while also spitting out crystals.  If you’re low on
power, go for them.  Try to dodge his double sand attacks and his jumping, and
continue to cry into his mouth and stomp his belly.  He’ll be finished in no
time.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

B. HOO THE OWL
World		: 2-6 Hoo’s Wood
Difficulty	: Hard
Attacks		: Lay Eggs; Swoop; Fling Eggs
Description	: Hoo the Owl makes his debut in this game as the protector of
Hoo’s Wood.  He’s a giant owl.

Hoo the Owl snatches Toad and starts throwing eggs at you.  The eggs hatch and
little baby Hoo’s start jumping around.  Dodge them, and wait for Hoo to swoop
down at you.  When he does, jump on him to take him out.  This part isn’t hard
at all, but once he’s down to 2 HP, he’ll twirl around and destroy the bridge
you were on.  You’ll start falling down to the ground, while Hoo still attacks
you.

He begins to twirl around some more, flinging eggs in all directions.  Then,
once he starts glowing, use JOY to fly up into the air above him and release it
to jump on him.  Maneuvering around can be quite difficult in the air, though,
especially with your limited power gauge.  Once you get his HP to zero, Peach
will slam into him and Hoo will fall to the ground, dying but leaving the Toad
behind.  Success!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

C. KING BOO
World		: 3-6 Shriek Mansion
Difficulty	: Easy
Attacks		: Flame Protector; Crybaby
Description	: King Boo returns after his appearances in Luigi’s Mansion, Mario
Sunshine, Mario Kart Double Dash, and Super Mario 64 DS.  He’s a giant ghost
with a crown on his head.

King Boo is actually quite easy.  As soon as you enter the room, you’ll see
three Boo’s hovering around a poor Toad.  They’ll merge into King Boo, who will
proceed to attack you.  He’ll call on some flames to circle around him.
Immediately find which candle is not lit and light it using RAGE.  This will
cause King Boo to lose an HP.  Keep finding the candles that aren’t lit and
he’ll be finished in no time.  Once he’s down to 2 HP, he’ll start bawling like
a baby.  Watch out for his tears, because he’ll still race after you.  The main
thing to keep in mind is that he hurts you if you touch him, so DON’T TOUCH
HIM.  Just keep lighting those candles and dodge his flames and you’ll destroy
him.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

D. WIGGLER
World		: 4-6 Fury Volcano
Difficulty	: Medium
Attacks		: Charge; Boulder Smash
Description	: The Wiggler has been around since Mario World, and has since had
prominent roles in both Mario Sunshine and Mario & Luigi 2: Partners in Time.
It’s a giant caterpillar with a flower on its head.

This battle is probably the longest one you’re going to face this far in the
game.  Wiggler immediately bounces the Toad away and charges at you, so get
onto the spring and fall to the lower area to dodge its attack.  Once you see
that it’s far enough away, get on a spring and use RAGE to push it down.  When
the Wiggler walks over, it’ll be flung up into the air and onto its back.  The
section on its body that is glowing green is the part you have to hit in order
to damage it.  Once it gets hit, it’ll turn red and run around, causing
boulders to smash down onto the ground.  Dodge them and wait for the Wiggler to
calm down.  Repeat the process of using the spring to bounce it down until it
only has 2 HP left.

This is where it gets difficult.  You have to keep using JOY to diminish the
gas that Wiggler is letting loose, while also dodging its charge attack.  Just
keep jumping on it after you spring it up and it’ll die.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

E. GOOPER BLOOPER
World		: 5-6 Wavy Beach
Difficulty	: Hard
Attacks		: Ink; Grab & Crush; Smack; Rejuvenation
Description	: This adorable squid made his first appearance in Mario Sunshine
but has since not been in many games.

Gooper Blooper is very powerful, especially compared to earlier bosses.  As
soon as you get to the Toad, he’s grabbed by four tentacles, and Gooper Blooper
rears his ugly (although not really – I find him quite cute) head.  Watch out,
because he will immediately use his tentacles to slap at you or grab you.
Dodge his attacks and then jump on his tentacles and they’ll vanish.  Once all
four tentacles are gone, he’ll start spitting ink.  After he’s done spitting,
use RAGE to blast his face (when he has a shocked look on his face).  Continue
this three times to get him down to 2 HP.

He also has a very powerful attack where he grabs you and crushes the life out
of you.  I’m not sure exactly what to press, but press every button you can and
also breathe into the microphone, and hopefully he’ll let go.  If not, your HP
will continually drop until you’re dead.
Once he is down to 1 HP, he’ll begin to sleep, regaining HP along the way.  Try
to destroy his sleep bubble before he can regain health by attacking normally.
If you do it fast enough, he won’t heal, and you can try to kill him.  He’s
quite a difficult boss, but I’m sure you can do it!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

F. BLIZZAURUS
World		: 6-6 Gleam Glacier
Difficulty	: Hard
Attacks		: Ice Beam; Glaciers; Rush; Icicles; Ice Blast
Description	: Blizzaurus has no previous appearances.  She’s a pompous-looking
dragon who is really a demented sprite in disguise.

After reaching the frozen Toad, Blizzaurus pops out of no where and knocks him
away.  As soon as the battle begins, Blizzaurus will charge at you.  Jump over
her and as she gets into the corner, jump onto her force field.  She’ll create
glaciers in the ground and also shoot beams of freezing ice at you.  If you get
hit by the beam, you will turn into ice and immediately press various buttons
in hopes of shattering the ice.  If you don’t, Blizzaurus will smash into you.
Once the coast is clear (or Blizzaurus charges up her attack), stand right next
to her and use RAGE to destroy her barrier and take away an HP.

When Blizzaurus’ HP reaches 2, she’ll reveal her true form.  She’s actually an
evil fairy, and she flies around in the air while you run around and dodge her
icicles.  When you get the opportunity, use RAGE and dodge Blizzaurus’ ice
blast, which sends bolts of ice at you in all directions.  RAGE will damage
Blizzaurus and eventually destroy her force field.  You’ll probably have to
jump in order to hit her, though.  Keep doing this until Blizzaurus is defeated.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

G. KAMEK
World		: 7-6 Giddy Sky
Difficulty	: Easy
Attacks		: Magic Wand; Summon Magikoopas; Phase; Magic Blast
Description	: Kamek is Bowser’s right-hand man and has been ever since Super
Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island.  He has since appeared in several games,
including both Mario & Luigi games and Mario Party Advance.  He is a magikoopa
that flies around on a broom.  He also has a new look for Super Princess Peach.

Yay, we finally found Luigi!  Unfortunately, Kamek is there, and he shoos Luigi
away and turns himself into a giant.  Notice the cloud around him.  As he
begins to phase away, stand on the ground and wait until he reforms.  Then, use
JOY to twirl in the air and cause Kamek to become dizzy.  Jump onto the cloud
and smack him with Perry.  Repeat this until he has only two HP left.

He’ll start freaking out and the cloud will vanish.  You have to continue to do
the same thing as before – use JOY and make him dizzy.  He’ll eventually sink
down and you can whack him with Perry, or you can just use JOY again and use
the whirlwind attack to hurt him.  Either way, he’ll eventually die.  Just
remember to dodge his magic attacks and you’ll be fine.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

H. HAMMER BRO GENERAL
World		: 8-6 Bowser’s Villa
Difficulty	: Medium
Attacks		: Summon Hammer Bros.; Angry Flame
Description	: This Hammer Bro. is Bowser’s loyal lieutenant and is the one who
finds the Vibe Scepter.  This is his first time in a Super Mario game, though
Hammer Bros. have been around since the first Super Mario Bros.  He’s basically
a normal-looking Hammer Bro. with a gray helmet (he’s the one on the cover of
the game).

This poor guy never gets a name.  Anyway, as soon as Peach bursts into Bowser’s
fortress, the General attacks.  He’ll summon a dozen or so Hammer Bros., so be
careful of them.  They’re really the only thing that make this battle any
difficult.  Try dodging them or fighting them off, and make your way to the
main man, who is usually off bouncing around.  When he’s not bouncing, he’s
growing in size out of anger.  So be cautious of his fire.

You can attack the General normally with Perry, or use vibes to hurt him.
Also, unlike the other bosses, he doesn’t do any special moves once he gets
down to 2 HP.  He’s pretty easy, just watch out for his flunkies.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

I. BOWSER I
World		: 8-6 Bowser’s Villa
Difficulty	: Hard
Attacks		: Charge; Stomp; Fire Breath; Fire Pillar; Hammer Time
Description	: Here he is, the head honcho.  Bowser has been around since Super
Mario Bros. and has since been the main villain in the majority of Mario games.

Bowser’s first form is pretty difficult.  He’ll immediately start charging at
you.  Simply jump over him to avoid his attack.  He’ll also destroy a statue of
himself, which will leave a crystal if you need it.  Once he charges, stand in
front of him and jump and attack with Perry.  It’ll take several hits (about
four or five) to take an HP off him.  Once he gets down to three HP, he’ll
start stomping the ground several times, unleashing a powerful wave.  Dodge the
waves and his jumping, and then try to attack him.  He also has dangerous fire
attacks, such as a fire beam that he blasts you with, a fire pillar that he
creates, and fireballs that he spits out.  Be careful of all of those.  When he
does the fire beam, duck, and with the other two, merely dodge them.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

J. BOWSER II
World		: 8-6 Bowser's Villa
Difficulty	: Hard
Attacks		: Claw Grab; Hammer Time; Flame Burst; Spike Ball; Flame Inferno; Heal
Bubble
Description	: The same as Bowser I...only bigger.

The main thing to do here is to grab the little bomb creatures and throw them
up at Bowser's face.  However, you need to time how you throw the bombs or it
won't hit Bowser correctly.  You get the bombs when Bowser stomps his claws on
the ground.  His attacks aren't overly dangerous, but take your time to defeat
him.  Heal whenever you need to, and you should do fine.

However, once Bowser II gets low on HP, he'll start to heal himself.
Immediately use RAGE to burst his bubble and continue to throw the bombs at
him.  He should be toast in no time.
