Glitches

  • Access Pianta Village Anytime

    This trick allows you to access Pianta Village without the rocket nozzle.

    Get behind the Shine Gate in Delfino Plaza, and jump onto the first small wall. Face away from the gate, backflip (quickly press the opposite direction and jump) and hover over to the large Shine, and land on the little overhang surrounding it. Go to the edge facing the rest of the plaza, turn around, and do a triple jump, only make the first two jumps small. Do this next part quickly and carefully: on the peak of the third jump, hover, turn around, and grab on to the top of the gate. Jump into the pipe, and congrats! You've just gotten into Pianta Village without using the Rocket Nozzle!

  • Bubba proof

    In Gelato Beach, or any other levels where there are Bubbas (the big red fish that drags Mario underwater), you can stop them from draging Mario underwater if you pick up a piece of fruit and start swimming with it. The Bubbas will follow mario around (and sometimes even pass through him), but won't be able to drag him down.

  • Easy Lives

    First, go to Delfino Plaza and collect 100 coins. Immediately after, find the pianta on a roof that throws you into a building for one coin. Collect the star inside the building and when you start over in Delfino Plaza, you will have 99 coins. Get another coin (to make 100) and you will get an extra life. Repeat as desired.

  • Walk Underwater

    This glitch allows Mario to run around underwater in Delfino Plaza during the flood.

    Clear Episode 7 in every level to flood Delfino Plaza. After watching the long cutscene and Mario's long drop into the Plaza, swim over to the log in front of the Shine Gate. Dive underwater, and try to surface under the log. If done correctly, Mario will suddenly drop and he'll be walking around under the water, and the Underwater Life Gauge will be gone. You can do this trick with any of the logs in the Plaza.

    NOTE: During the flood, only Serena Beach and Pianta Village are accessable. The rest of the stages and any underwater manholes or buildings aren't.
