All of these glitches are from Gamefaqs, http://systemcrash.tk, and 
other various sites and I take no credit for finding any of these 
glitches unless I found them out by myself. 

This is the first ever SMS Glitch Guide on GameFaqs.

This guide is copyrighted to me. I am only letting GameFaqs use it. If 
you want to use it email me with the subject SMSGG. Or if you have a 
glitch that you want to submit then please send it to me since finding 
glitches for games like this aren’t very easy. Send me an email with 
the glitch with the subject GSMS. Anyways you came to the Glitch Guide 
to see the glitches not read.

There are more Glitches to come so check back often.

I will be doing an example of what you will see in this Glitch Guide.


EXAMPLE-
A-Access Pianta Village Early

Glitch- Access Pianta Village Early
Difficulty- Easy/Medium
Discovered by- P0lar Bear from GameFaqs
Description- Lets you get to Pianta Village Early

How to Perform-

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.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
B-Bubba Proof

Glitch- Bubba Proof
Difficulty-Extremely Easy
Discovered by-Jelly Soup from GameFaqs
Description-Lets you go through Bubba without getting eaten.

How to Perform-

In Gelato Beach, or any other levels where there are Bubbas (the big 
red fish that drags Mario underwater), you can stop them from dragging 
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.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
C-Walk Under Water

Glitch-Walk Under Water
Difficulty-Medium
Discovered by- P0lar Bear from GameFaqs
Description- Walk under water during the flood in Delphino Plaza

How to Perform-

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.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
D- Yoshi/Mario Underwater/Delphino Plaza

Glitch- Yoshi/Mario Underwater/Delphino Plaza
Difficulty-Easy/Medium
Discovered by-??? From System Crash
Description-Lets you take Yoshi and/or Mario under water in Delphino 
Plaza

How to Perform-
This is a fairly major glitch and also very fun and useful, God knows 
how anyone ever came up with it. Anyway, to do this grab Yoshi in Isle 
Delphino. Take him to the building to the left of the statue and take 
him under the furthest left window. Now perform a spin jump, hold A and 
push inwards towards the building. When Yoshi reaches the seam between 
the wall and the roof he should float through. Now let go of A and 
you'll drop underground into a dark blue area. Now start jumping 
because if you stand still for more than a few seconds you die. Make 
your way out under the sea, (sometimes you'll end up in the underground 
pipes and have to start again) once here jump up and you should come up 
through the ground and land on the ground under water. Now you can run 
around under water to your heart's content. Once you come out of the 
water you can't go back.
(NOTE: This can also be done with Mario alone.)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
E- Cage Maze Bypass

Glitch-Cage Maze Bypass
Difficulty-Very Easy/Easy
Discovered by- Various People from System Crash
Description-Take another easier way to bypass the cage maze

How to Perform-

You can bypass the cage maze in Pinna Park Episode 6 by siply climbing 
up and using your hover pack through the spinning ferris wheel. Then 
simply drop down, jump up and knock the koopa off and collect the shine 
in the normal way.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
F-The Fruit Tree Glitches

Glitch- The Fruit Tree Glitches
Difficulty-Easy/Medium
Discovered by- Alan Sokol from System Crash
Description- Two fruit tree glitches in Pianta Village.

How to Perform-
Root Glitch: Grab the Tree
In Pianta Village, any episode, go to the fruit tree. Look at the 
underside of the tree. You should see a seam where the branches meet 
the dome. Position yourself under the seam, jump, and hover to the 
trunk of the tree. You should grab on. However, moving up or down is 
very limited. Move up, you "warp" to the top of the dome. Move down, 
and you grad the actual trunk.

Funny Glitch: Flying Sparks
Do the same as before, but position the durian one durian's width from 
the base of the tree. Then do the glitch, but without disturbing the 
durian, and move down to the trunk. Move yourself so that you are right 
over the durian -- and jump off the tree. You'll have to see it for 
yourself to believe it.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
G-Walk Inside Pianta Village and Walk Underwater, or rather, stand.

Glitch- Walk Inside Pianta Village and Walk Underwater, or rather, 
stand.
Difficulty-Medium/Hard
Discovered by- Alan Sokol from System Crash
Description-Walk inside Pianta Village and under water or you can 
stand.

How to Perform-

No, I am not kidding. I'm talkin' under the ground where you usually 
play the level. First, go to Episode Eight. Then go to the hot springs. 
The next part requires a lot of patience: wait there until you see a 
fluff very low to the ground, like two scale inches, then grab it. If 
you are close to the spring's walls, face your back to the wall. Then 
let the fluff carry you INTO the wall. Don't worry about jumping off: 
the fluff will poof out of existence. But when you fall off, mash the A 
button. You have about as much room as a triple jump's height in there, 
so when you fall, you won't expect it. Then move over to the pool, or 
jacuzzi, or whatever it is, and do a side somersault or a spin jump. 
Congratulations, you are underwater

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
H- Walk Underwater/Take Yoshi underwater, Ricco Harbour

Glitch- Walk Underwater/Take Yoshi underwater, Ricco Harbour
Difficulty-Medium/Hard
Discovered-Dom Dunc from System Crash. Dyn721 from Centre for Glitch 
Studies
Description-Take Mario and/or Yoshi underwater in Ricco Harbor

How to Perform-

This comes from glitch discovered by Dyn721 over at the Centre for 
Glitch Studies, so he deserves most of the credit. Enter Ricco Harbour 
Story 8. Hatch Yoshi from his egg (make sure he is purple) take him to 
the wall near the beginning of the level with a mechanical spider 
crawling on it (this wall). Spray the spider with juice and quickly 
jump onto the platform you created. The platform should move into the 
wall and you should drop under the level. Now keep hopping, if you 
stand still you'll die. Now turn back towards the start of the level 
and make your way under some water (if you go this way, you should 
avoid the sewers) and simply hop up through the floor. Now you can now 
walk around at will underwater with Yoshi. An interesting side note is 
that there seems to be two layers of water, one at the water's surface, 
and one near the sea bed, when you're walking around at the bottom 
you'll notice the ripples and slower walking speed because of it. Also 
or note is that you can make your way underground to the barred off 
pipe that normally leads to the octo-race track and jump up into it.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
I-Walk Underwater, Gelato Beach

Glitch- Walk Underwater, Gelato Beach
Difficulty-Hard
Discovered by-Dom Dunc
Description-Walk underwater in Gelato Beach

How to Perform-

Quite a tough glitch this, since there are some complications that 
prevent it from being straight forward. Grab a rocket pack and climb up 
to the highest wire in the level. Walk to the end of the wire look out 
towards the world boundary. Position the camera behind Mario, now 
bounce up and down and fire the rocket at the height of your jump, hold 
forward. You should connect with an invisible wall, keep holding 
forward and you should get stuck against this wall. Now let go of the 
stick and you should fall through the hill and land underground. Now 
keep hopping otherwise you die. Hop over to the sea and you'll find 
that an invisible wall blocks you from walking underwater. This is a 
problem. What you have to do is make your way to the right hand side of 
the little pier that leads to a hut in the water. You should be able to 
just about get underwater. Fire your rocket pack and you should land on 
the ground underwater. Now simply walk forwards and you should be 
walking underwater. There are several 'layers' of water under here 
(about 5 or 6) but you should be able to get under them by diving.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
J- Walk Underwater in the Lilypad Special Stage

Glitch- Walk Underwater in the Lilypad Special Stage
Difficulty-Medium
Discovered by-Dom Dunc from System Crash
Description- Get under the poisoned water in the Lily pad special 
stage. The easier way to get 6 red coins out of 8 ;-)

How to Perform-

This is probably the toughest special stage to get too (it's the one on 
the island, with the entrance pipe covered in yellow jelly) Once inside 
the stage make your way to the end (either by lily pad, or walking down 
the sides) Where the water runs out of the end, you need to jump off 
and hover through the side of the waterfall and back onto the floor of 
the waterway (through the grating) As long as you don't touch the 
water's surface you'll be fine. Now you can run around underwater to 
your heart's content. A small note, if you press B to dive, then A, the 
jump is high enough to reach 6 of the 8 coins easily, without breaking 
the water's surface.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
K-Walk Underwater, Bianco Hills

Glitch-Walk Underwater, Bianco Hills
Difficulty-Extremely Easy(Depending on your timing)
Discovered by- Lots of SMS players. Dom Dunc from System Crash
Description-Walk under Bianco Hills. Remember when your in the blue 
area under ground keep jumping or you will die =).

How to Perform-

Grab a rocket pack. Make your way to the large rotating wooden wheel. 
Dive at the bottom of the wheel at about a 45 degree angle so the wheel 
sqashes you into the ground.  
 
    <-- Wheel turns like this. 
   ____ 
 /++++\ 
|+++++| 
\++++ / <-- Dive here. 
 
    --> 
 
Mario should end up stood half undergroud. Walk around and you should 
drop down under the level. Keep jumping to stay alive. Make your way 
under some water, jump and fire you're rocket pack. You should land 
under the water and be free to walk around.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
L-Walk Underwater, Serena Beach

Glitch-Walk Underwater, Serena Beach
Difficulty-Very Easy/Easy
Discovered by-Deathborn668 from System Crash
Description-Walk Underwater in Serena Beach

How to Perform-

On any episode find a barrel and bring it to the ocean. Put the barrel 
down in the point where Mario stops walking and starts swimming. Stand 
behind the barrel and pick it up. Mario's height goes down as he kneels 
and you can walk underwater. Cool? It may take a few tries.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
M-Walk Underwater in Isle Delphino 2

Glitch-Walk Underwater in Isle Delphino 2
Difficulty-Easy/Medium
Discovered by-Dom Dunc from System Crash
Description- Dom Dunc’s way of getting underneath the water so you can 
walk around.

How to Perform-

Start a new game and collect the first shine at the airport. Now you 
should be take to Isle Delphino, near the centre of the island you 
should find some barrels, grab one and take it to the beach area. Walk 
down the beach until you reach the point where Mario is just about to 
start swimming, now drop the barrel, push forward slightly and Mario 
should start swimming, now tap b and you should grab the barrel and be 
standing underwater! Now run around as much as you want.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
N-Take Fruit underwater in Isle Delphino

Glitch-Take Fruit Underwater in Delphino Plaza
Difficulty-Easy
Discovered by-Dom Dunc
Description-Take fruit underwater without it disappearing. Make sure 
you know a way to get under water. (if you don’t then just read the 
glitch in this guide ;-). not really hard )

How to Perform-

Grab a piece of fruit and walk into the water at the beach area, walk 
up to the point at which Mario is about to start swimming, now drop the 
fruit, it should safely land on the sea floor as long as it does not 
touch the water's surface. Now use your method of choice to walk 
underwater and you can play with the fruit.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
O-Walk Inside the Pianta Statue

Glitch-Walk Inside the Pianta Statue
Difficulty-Easy/Medium
Discovered- CHOCLAIR5(Eric Pillwein)From System Crash
Description- Doesn’t really do anything but walk inside the Pianta 
Statue

How to Perform-

Go the statue in Delfino Plaza of the big Pianta(where the entrance to 
Bianco Hills is)and go behind it.Line yourself up with the middle fold 
in his cape,and back summersault.Now comes the difficult part.You need 
to start hovering pretty much PERFECTLY even with the cape,because if 
you go to high,you'll "slide" up him,and to low,you'll get stuck 
beneath the cape and you can't go any higher.If you get it right,you 
should go through the cape,and be in an invisible box,under the 
cape,which you normally can't get to.You will be stuck unless you 
jump,in which case you can go through other parts of the statue.There 
seems to be a certain area you have to stay in,or else you can't go 
through him,so don't wander too far.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
P-Endless Stars

Glitch-Endless Stars
Difficulty-Easy/Medium
Discovered by-CHOCLAIR5(Eric Pillwein) from System Crash
Description-Endless stars that look like a bunch of fire works. Pretty 
fun to watch

Bianco Hills is)and go behind it.Line yourself up with the middle fold 
in his cape,and back summersault.Now comes the difficult part.You need 
to start hovering pretty much PERFECTLY even with the cape,because if 
you go to high,you'll "slide" up him,and to low,you'll get stuck

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Q-Cage Maze bypass 2

Glitch- Cage Maze Bypass 2
Difficulty-Medium
Discovered by CHOCLAIR5(Eric Pillwein) from System Crash
Description- Another way to get to the mayor easier

How to Perform-

You can bypass the maze of cages under Pianta Village by using a little 
common sense.At the start of the episode,cross the bridge and head 
right til you get to the little stream/village.Swim there til you get 
to the waterfall.Now do side flips in and out of the water to spread 
the water forward towards the series of platforms where you complete 
the level.This will make the fire goop dissappear.You will need to 
cover a bit more than you can reach with a normal side flip,so once you 
have a lot gone,do a water side flip with a dive to cover more(you may 
get hurt but that's ok).Now just do a side flip+dive over the goop and 
you will be at the dry area near the end.Just climb the platforms,grab 
FLUDD,hose down the mayor and get the shine.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
R-Mario Sky Diving

Glitch-Mario Sky Diving
Difficulty-Easy/Medium/Hard (Depending how good your timing is)
Discovered by-Gamepro2407
Description-Go very high in the sky in Gelato Beach. Fun to watch.

How to Perform-

To do this first you have to go to gelato beach on episode 6 (it does 
not matter which episode but this has yoshi in it) any way start and 
get yoshi and there is this yellow gel by the hut with fruit spray with 
yoshis juice and start to spray the plant there. Before and you have to 
time it correctly it goes down do a butt pound there and if you did it 
right you should be sent high in the air. Now you can jump off yoshi 
and press B to do a dive or you can do a ground pound,or spray with 
water, etc. You can do this virtually any where on this level. But the 
only bad thing is that sometimes you can be sent higher then the sun 
and won’t come back down and you will fall there forever and you will 
know because the sun will be directly underneath you. But sometimes the 
sun will be at the side of you and you will fall back down to gelato 
beach.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
S-Noki Bay Weirdness

Glitch-Noki Bay Weirdness
Difficulty-Extremely Hard
Discovered by-Brittany Grogan (Emailed Glitch)
Description-Fall through a cliff in Noki Bay. Not as easy as you think…

Hello, I have never written one of these before so please forgive any 
mistakes I make. I am writing to report a glitch I found in Noki Bay on 
Super Mario Sunshine. On the high cliff where the springboard is, there 
is a small puddle that you can refill FLUDD in. If you spray the 
springboard and put it on the seam just where the puddle ends, you can 
fall through it and swim in the ocean that you see if you turn the 
camera so that it looks behind walls. If you touch a wall while in the 
ocean, you will be sucked down and lose a life. I could not do it a 
second time, so I guess this is a hard glitch to find.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
T-Fall through ground in Gelato Beach/Walk under water(Alternate way)

Glitch-Fall through ground in Gelato Beach/Walk underwater(Alternate 
way)
Difficulty-Easy/Medium (Depends on how close to the center of Wiggler 
you are.
Discovered by-TONYD21234 (Emailed Glitch)
Description-Another way of going underground ^_^ The Joy.

I accidentally found another way to do the walk underwater glitch in 
Gelato Beach.  Play the third stage, where you have to fight Wiggler, 
and defeat Wiggler.  If you use the dune plant on the part of the beach 
that sticks out, the third attack should cause Wiggler to land in the 
water.  Ground Pound Wiggler as normal, but as he dies, stay on Wiggler 
and walk towards his center.  If done correctly, after the Shine Sprite 
appears, Mario will be walking underwater.  Additionally, if you walk 
near the island with the trees and the swing, Mario runs incredibly 
fast.  I only did this once, and completely by accident, so I'm not 
sure if it will work every time.
