    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

    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)

    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.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
