 Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is a great and fantastic game. And it is
 only for the Nintendo Gamecube! This new Paper Mario features a whole new cast
 of characters, including some of the old ones, but the old ones aren't party
 members. Instead, the characters from the original Paper Mario give you hints,
 etc. For example, Merlin, instead of fortune-telling and giving you advice,
 powers up your characters for three Shine Sprites each.

 This game features the same Battle System as the first one, but has improved
 graphics, improved sounds, more things to do, and a whole lot of other stuff!
 If you want a great RPG, or if you are looking for a great RPG, play Paper
 Mario: The Thousand Year Door, as it is really good!

 Final Version / This version is the last version of the FAQ, and I do not
                 intend to update it again, regardless of how much I've updated
                 it in the past when I intended not to.

 Version 2.7 / Added a question I had not put in the FAQ in the Mini-Games
               section for the X-Naut's Fortress, thanks to Cora Pearson.

 Version 2.6 / Notice that I changed 2.5, which used to be "LAST", into 2.5,
               but that's because I found a very good strategy for Bonetail,
               thanks to Kirby021591. The next update will feature an entire
               reformat of the FAQ's margins to where exactly has 79 CPL,
               rather than 80 in one spot, and 50 in another. After that, I
               assure you I will discontinue updates to this file for good
               unless I find something that isn't included in here that
               desperately needs to be added.

 Version 2.5 /  Changed the layout in some ways by fixing margins, added how to
                fight Atomic Boo. This will be the final update.

 Version 2.4 / Added Star Pieces and Shine Sprites to the Game Basics section.

 Version 2.3 / Fixed some margins in the FAQs section and added some more FAQs
               to the FAQs section.

 Version 2.2 / Finally added the Recipes section after waiting for awhile.

 Version 2.1 / Added something I had missed in the Fahr Outpost. You have to
               use Bobbery when talking to the mayor, and I didn't put that.
               Thanks to Barbara Gibb for pointing this out. Now maybe I won't
               be flooded with e-mails concerning Fahr Outpost. ^^

 Version 2.0 / Minor changes to the Copyright section.

 Version 1.9 / Added a Frequently Asked Question to the FAQs section, and fixed
               a minor something I forgot.

 Version 1.8 / Completed all the sub-sections. Now this entire guide is
               completed!

 Version 1.7 / Sorry that the update took so long, but it's finally here! I've
               finished the ENTIRE Walkthrough, all Bosses, all Star Pieces,
               all Shine Sprites, all Techs, AND a Boss Strategy for Bonetail.
               The next update will have all the sub-sections completed, so be
               prepared for a complete guide from front to back come next
               update!

 Version 1.6 / I added all the Star Pieces for Glitzville, Twilight Town, and
               some for Twilight Trail. The rest of Twilight Trail is soon to
               be added. I promise I'll have all Star Pieces, all Shine
               Sprites and all of the Techs sub-sections done by the next
               update. I also finished all of Chapter 6 and am past Bowser's
               Event. Stay tuned for the next big, and I MEAN big, update!

 Mario: Mario is Nintendo's famous star, as we all know. He's back in this all
        new adventure on the Nintendo Gamecube! Mario and his brother, Luigi,
        receive a letter from Princess Peach. In the letter, Peach tells that
        she has found an ancient treasure map. After they read it, Mario sets
        off to go meet Princess Peach, as she wants Mario to come to where she
        is to the town of Rogueport. When Mario arrives in Rogueport, he finds
        that Peach isn't there!
 
        He must team up with his partners in order to defeat the main villain
        in this game.

 Luigi: Luigi is also another star of Nintendo. He is also the brother of
        Mario. Though Luigi is not very heroic or strong like his brother,
        Luigi's may become heroic by undertaking a new task: rescuing Princess
        Eclair. Luigi lies on every single one of his stories that he tells
        you. My guess is that he got jealous because Mario went on an
        adventure, and so he pretends to be on an adventure, when in all
        reality he is not. Luigi gains party members of his own after each
        chapter you complete.

 Peach: Princess Peach is another super famous star of Nintendo. She is Mario's
        girlfriend, who has been with him through thick and thin, and through
        many of the toughest adventures her and Mario have ever faced. In this
        game, Princess Peach goes into the town of Rogueport and a her a box.
        She buys the box, and with a treasure map. She puts the map in an
        envelope, it and the treasure map. Mario then decides to set sail to
        find Princess Peach in Rogueport to get the ancient treasure that is
        shown on the map.

        When he gets there, he finds that Princess Peach is gone! Has Bowser
        kidnapped her again? We'll find out as we play through this new Paper
        Mario game!

 Goombella: Goombella is a cute Goomba of University of Goom co-ed in her
            second year as an archaeology major. Also one of Mario's partners,
            and the first one that you get. Goombella first meets Mario when
            she is in a predicament with Lord Crump, a servant to his master,
            Lord Grodus, leader of the X-Nauts. Once Mario comes to where
            Goombella is, she joins him in his quest to find the Crystal Stars.
            Goombella isn't very good of a partner. She's weak, and she's my
            least favorite out of all of them.

            That's just my opinion, though. She gives you information about
            areas that you're in and hints about them. This is a useful
            technique.

 Koops: Koops is the son of his dad who lives in a town known as Petalburg,
        home of the Koopa Troopas. Koops thinks he's weak, but he proves to his
        girlfriend and to Petalburg that he isn't weak when he teams up with
        Mario and goes to Hooktail's Castle and defeats him, thus liberating
        his dad from Hooktail's vile stomach. Koops leaves the village after
        defeating Hooktail and journeys off with Mario in an effort to prove
        his strength by helping Mario look for the Crystal Stars.

 Flurrie: Flurrie is a cloud. Better known as Madame Flurrie, Flurrie is a
          fashionist. Flurrie's beautiful looks comes from her precious
          "necklace". She loses the necklace, and Mario finds it for her. Once
          he brings it back, Flurrie joins Mario's party to save the Punies
          from their enemies. In the Great Tree, home of the Punies, Mario,
          Flurrie, and his partners encounter the evil Lord Crump. Lord Cump
          summons up his big machine known as Magnus.

          Magnus fights Mario and Flurrie, and Mario's partners, and loses the
          battle. After that, Mario, Flurrie, and his partners save the Great
          Tree, thus saving the Punies. Flurrie then journeys with Mario in his
          quest to get the Crystal Stars, as she has nothing better to do. She
          is bored, and so she comes.

 Yoshi: Yoshi, as we all know, has been in many Mario games and in a few other
        games, and is a famous Nintendo star. Yoshi, in this game, is met in
        the town of Glitzville in the third Chapter in an egg. Once Mario
        catches the Yoshi Egg, the Yoshi Egg moves up on top of the concession
        stand, as he was by a concession stand because he was intended to be
        used as an ingredient in a "hot dog" that was supposedly, able to make
        you win matches in the Glitz Pit in Glitzville.

        Once Mario gets on top of the concession stand and grabs the Yoshi Egg,
        the Yoshi Egg joins him and follows him around. In the Glitz Pit, in
        the first match against the Iron Clefts, Yoshi then hatches and you get
        to name him. Yoshi then defeats the Iron Clefts with Mario, and then he
        joins him in his quest for good.

 Vivian: Vivian is one of the three Shadow Sirens. With her sisters, Vivian is
         sent by Lord Grodus to destroy Mario, and hunt down the Crystal Stars
         to open "The Thousand Year Door". Though, in a town known as Twilight
         Town, Vivian is about to be punished by her sister, Beldam if she
         doesn't find a bomb that will surely destroy Mario, as the Shadow
         Sirens failed to destroy him the first time they encountered him.
         Mario finds the bomb, and Vivian joins Mario, as she says she isn't
         sure if she even wants to be with her sisters anymore.

         Vivian then truly joins Mario after getting his name and body back
         from the Twilight Town that turned people into pigs known as Doopliss.
         Vivian then helps Mario find the Crystal Stars and open the Thousand
         Year Door before Grodus, his X-Nauts, and her sisters, the Shadow
         Sirens.

 Admiral Bobbery: Admiral Bobbery has a sad story. He had a girlfriend named
                  Scarlette, and they fell in deep love and the two eventually
                  married. One day, Bobbery was out at sea (which is why he
                  despises the sea so much and refuses to go the first time you
                  talk to him) and Scarlette is sick with a terrible illness,
                  as its winter, and its extremely cold back in Rogueport.
                  Scarlette knows that Bobbery will blame her death on himself,
                  so she writes a letter to a guy in Rogueport to show to
                  Bobbery.

                  The guy never fulfills what Scarlette says. But, as luck
                  would have it, Bobbery eventually finds and reads the letter
                  that Scarlette his love, left behind on her deathbed.

 Ms. Mowz: Ms. Mowz is a female rat who is also known as a thief. She wears a
           red bandana across her face to hide her identity, and looks for
           Badges more than anything. When Mario finds her the Attack FX B
           Badge, she joins his party, though she is an optional character and
           not a very useful one at that.

         Hello there, Mario!
 I am now on holiday, traveling in the
        Mushroom Kingdom.


 In my travels, I came into possession of a
 mystical map...a treasure map, actually. It
 was inside a box I got from an old merchant
         in a town called Rogueport.


 But since it would be too difficult for me to
  try to go find treasure all by myself... I
 thought you could help me hunt for it! You
         will, of course, won't you?


  I've included the map with this letter, so
  please bring it with you when you come. I'll
    meet you at Rogueport. (That means you
                 MUST come!)


                   -Peach-


 So Mario headed for Rogueport, where he knew
 Peach was waiting...but she was nowhere to be
 found. Where had she gone?

 When Mario started to walk around town to
 look for her, though, he found himself in the
 middle of a sticky situation. He ended up
 helping a sweet Goomba gal who was in
 trouble. Her name was Goombella, and she
 claimed to be in the midst of a treasure hunt...

 When Mario told her that he had a treasure
 map, Goombella took him to see Professor
 Frankly, a wizened old archaeology professor
 who knew much of local legend.

 According to the professor, in order to find the
 legendary treasure, they would have to first
 find and collect all seven Crystal Stars. Only
 then would they be able to open the Thousand-
 Year Door, behind which the treasure lay.

 Luckily for them, the map that Peach had sent
 was the very Magical Map that showed the
 locations of the Crystal Stars!

 By following the map, perhaps they will also
 find Peach... A grand adventure awaits Mario
 and his friends!

 I took this from the Instruction Manual.

 | 6. Game Basics                                                       |

 Starting A Game: To start a game, press Start when the title screen appears.
                  Then, select one of the four files you wish to start your
                  file on. Then, make a name for yourself (the name will be for
                  Mario). Then, highlight "Done" and press A to start a game.

 Saving The Game: There are various Save Points in this game that are used for
                  saving all you've done in the game. After you save, the save
                  data will go to your Memory Card, which means the save data
                  that you get after saving your game at a Save Point will be
                  stuck on your Memory Card unless you delete it. I recommend
                  saving your game often, as you never know when you might get
                  Game Over.

 The Field: The Field is where you can control Mario, talk to people, save your
            game, examine things, solve puzzles, break down things with your
            Hammer, jump on blocks to recieve Items, hit switches, hit Recovery
            Blocks which fully restore all of your HP/FP (Coins are needed for
            this). Basically, you can do anything on the Field. Touch enemies
            to start a battle. If they touch you before you jump or hit them,
            they strike first, which means you'll have to block their first
            attack to avoid taking damage.

            If you jump on an enemy or hit them with the Hammer to hit them
            first, this will count as a "First Strike", which means you'll hit
            the enemy first. Time your First Strike well, as you'll need it to
            help you win battles.

 Battle System: The Battle System in this game is kind of simple, kind of not.
                It depends on how well you understand a game or a Battle System
                in an RPG. First off, Mario and the partner you have in the
                battle with you (i.e Goombella, etc.) will all attack in that
                order. Then comes the enemies. This changes, however, if you
                have a First Strike. If you have a First Strike, Mario will
                attack twice, then his partner, then the enemies. This also
                changes when an enemy hits you first. When that happens, it
                will say before the Battle Screen appears, "Your foe struck
                first!".

                Then, the enemy attacks, then Mario, then his partner. Also,
                press Y to put your partner in front of Mario, thus making your
                partner attack first instead of Mario -- and allowing Mario to
                attack first instead of your partner -- and allowing Mario to
                take damage instead of your partner depending on how long you
                leave Mario in front of your partner. That, my friend, is the
                whole Battle System.

 Jump: This is one of Mario's commands. To use it, simply press A and then
       you'll have to press A again to make Mario use the move. Once you press
       A, obey the message at the bottom of the screen and press A right before
       you land on an enemy to cause some extra damage. You can do this an
       unlimited amount of times on Power Bounce, thus causing significant
       damage to enemies. This doesn't work, however, on some enemies such as
       Clefts and Iron Clefts.

 Hammer: This is the last of Mario's commands. To use it, simply press A and
         then you'll have to press A again to make Mario use the Hammer. Once
         you press A, obey the message at the bottom of the screen which says
         hold Left on the Control Stick until (*) lights up. Do exactly as that
         message says and hold Left on the Control Stick until (*) lights up.

 Star Power: Star Power is what executes moves that I call Star Techs. To
             execute a Star Tech, a certain amount of Star Power is required.
             To do Sweet Treat, you have to have one Star Power circle filled
             up. The more Star Techs you get, the more Star Power you have to
             have to execute them. A new Star Tech is gained after each Chapter
             is successfully completed.

 Flower Points: Flower Points, better known as FP, is something that allows you
                to use moves known as Special Moves. The more FP you have,
                which is gained by gaining levels, means you can use more
                Special Moves. These execute some serious damage. The more FP
                and Special Moves you have, the more you'll stand a chance in
                beating the game.

 Hit Points:  Hit Poitns, better known as HP, is your life meter, put it that
              way. If you lose all of your HP (when it reaches 0), the game is
              over. To gain HP, level up and select it from the level up
              screen. The more HP you have, the more chance of you have of
              surviving bosses and enemies.

 Badge Points: Badge Points, better known as BP, is something that allows you
               to use Badges. These power up Mario or your partner. Whether it
               be attack, or whatever, Badges boost you or your partner's
               stats, etc. They also have sound different than they normally
               do. It takes BP to use Badges, so if you like to use Badges,
               then I recommend leveling up your BP every other level up you
               gain. One Badge is essential for beating Hooktail. Badges take
               FP to use also, so be careful not to run out.

 Star Pieces: Throughout the game you'll find 100 of these. Star Pieces can be
              exchanged underneath Rogueport in the deep part of the sewers by
              talking to Dazzle. To find Dazzle, take the first pipe on the
              east side of the sewer and then go left. Now, talk to Dazzle whom
              you see in front of you and buy the Badges of your choice. That's
              all Star Pieces are for and you don't actually need all 100.

 Shine Sprites: There are 40 Shine Sprites in the game as well. See the Shine
                Sprite section to see how to get all of them. Shine Sprites can
                be taken to Merlon in Rogueport (the guy in the house when the
                Shine symbol on it on the east side of town). Once you talk to
                Merlon, you can power up each of your characters once for 3
                Shines. Once you power them up, go to Hooktail's Castle in mid
                game (see my Walkthrough for details) and get the thing to
                power them up again.

                Once you power them up again, your done for good with Shine
                Sprites. These are very useful.

 Tactics: The "Tactic" icon is the icon with the red flag. Tactic contains four
          options:  Change Partner, Defend, Appeal, and Run Away. Change
          Partners allows you to change your current partner that's in the
          battle with you. Defend allows you or your partner to defend for a
          turn. This increases the defenders defense. Appeal allows Mario or
          his partner to appeal to the audience. This will build your Star
          Power as you keep doing this. This is how you fill up your Star Power
          in battle. Run Away allows you to run away from battles if you're
          near death, or just want to run away. Repeadeatly tap A to increase
          the meter, thus allowing you to run away from battle.

          If the Run Away meter is full, you can run away without stumbling. If
          you land on a place not occupied by the meter, you'll stumble and
          have to try to run away again. If you land on a place occupied by the
          meter, you'll run away from the battle. You can't run away from Boss
          Battles, or anytime it says that you can't run away. This is the
          Tactic icon. These are all the features it has. This isn't very hard
          to learn, either.

 Audience: When you come into a battle, you will encounter an audience. The
           audience can be anywhere to 1 person or 150 people watching you
           fight. The more people watch you fight, the more you'll feel better
           about yourself. :) Sometimes people in the audience will try and
           throw an Item at you that will damage you, while some will try to
           throw you Coins, or helpful Items. Press "X" when it displays on the
           screen during battle to hit one of the audience.

           Make sure that you aren't hitting an audience that will give you a
           Coin, or a helpful Item. There, I've explained the audience to you.

 Guarding: To reduce the damage taken by enemies' attacks, press A right before
           they hit you. This helps alot. Use it everytime you fight to not get
           Game Over as fast as you normally would without this. Also, you can
           press the "B" button to Superguard, which makes you have damage
           reduced even MORE than Guard does. This makes a HUGE difference in
           the game, and is ESSENTIAL for the latter of parts of the game.

 Leveling Up: To level up, gain 100 Star Points. You gain Star Points after
              each battle. Once you gain 100 Star Points, you'll level up and
              have the option to choose betweenthree things: more HP, more FP,
              or more BP. Each time you level up your HP or FP, you gain 5 more
              HP and FP. If you level up your BP, you gain 3 more BP.

 Powering Up Partners: To power up your partner, you must collect three Shine
                       Sprites and then go to Merlin which is located in
                       Rogueport. He'll give your partners new moves. For
                       example, he'll give Flurrie Lip Lock. You can power up
                       each partner once and once later on. This is why it is
                       important to collect every Shine Sprite you come across.

 Menu Screen: The Menu Screen is displayed when you press Start when you're
              anywhere except a battle. On the Menu Screen you can see Mario's
              HP, FP, SP (Star Power), Equipment, and Abilities, Star Rank,
              which is needed for more audience members, Special Moves, and
              your current level (not a level like Hooktail's Castle, but your
              level that you're currently at by gaining levels). This is the
              Menu Screen. Also, you can view other things such as your party
              members, your gear, your Badges (this is where you can equip
              Badges as well, so keep that in mind), and your Journal.

 Stylish: In battle, when use your Hammer with Mario, and if you use certain
          moves with other characters besides Mario. For example, if you hit
          an enemy with say Power Smash, if you move the Control Stick Left and
          press A at the same time, you'll sometimes get a Stylish message that
          appears on your screen. When you get a Stylish, if you don't have any
          SP because you used a skill such as Sweet Treat, the crowd will like
          you a lot and give you a boost of SP.

          Remember, you can get Stylish with a lot more characters aside from
          just Mario. Also, I find that if you rotate the Control Stick
          clockwise and then press A at the same time, you can sometimes get
          two Stylish messages to appear onscreen, and this is incredibly
          useful, especially in the latter parts of the game where SP is used
          more often.

 E-Mail: Throughout the game, you'll receive e-mails that go into your Mailbox
         SP, where you can read them. E-mails aren't really important, but they
         can be fun to read, and sometimes give you some useful info. To get to
         the Mailbox SP, press Start to access the Start Menu, then go to the
         option "Gear" and then press A and go down to Important Things, which
         is where you'll find the Mailbox SP. Also, something I forgot to
         mention is that you will receive e-mails from the people you've met
         throughout the game, not people you haven't met.

 Journal: This is the rightmost option in the Start Menu. The Journal option
          gives you access to four different things: Map, which is the Magical
          Map, which only shows the areas you've currently visited. The second
          option in Journal is Crystal Stars, which show the current amount of
          Crystal Stars that you have. The third option under Journal is Tattle
          Log, which displays the enemies you've used Tattle on with Goombella,
          and gives you the information about that enemy that you've Tattled.
          The fourth option, and the last option is Badges, where you can view
          all of the Badges you have currently collected (you can't equip them
          here).

 Once you start a file, your game will save. Then, the game opens with Parry
 (from Paper Mario for the N64) delivering a letter to Mario and Luigi. After
 talking, Luigi goes up to Mario and reads the letter for Mario. Once Luigi
 finishes reading the letter, he talks for a bit, and then a screen with the
 Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door logo will appear. When this appears, press
 A. You will see Rogueport in the distance, and the sailor urges Mario to wake
 up. Once he wakes up, you'll see Rogueport in the distance. Now, after the
 talking, you'll arrive at Rogueport.


 Rogueport
 ---------

 Once in Rogueport, go west and you'll encounter your first Save Point. Save
 your game and go north and you'll hear some weird music playing. Once you get
 done reading the talking, you'll regain control of Mario so go north and east
 and you'll see Goombella. Read the talking. Then you'll enter battle against
 Lord Crump. Just attack him with Jump or with your Hammer; you'll defeat him
 in a few turns. Once you beat him, Lord Crump will send his army of X-Naut
 soldiers to attack you.

 You won't get hurt. Once Goombella says to come there, follow her, as your now
 in control, and then after you regain control again, go up the stairs into the
 next area. Then, Lord Crump will scream at his X-Nauts to stop. After the
 talking is over, Goombella joins your party. Now, go to the Save Point you see
 in the distance and save your game. You can check around town if you like. When
 you are ready, go east from the Save Point and then you'll be in a new area,
 only to find a bandit steal half of your Coins!

 You are now down to 50 Coins, so in order to get them back, we're gonna have
 to go west into the next area. Once we're in the Rogueport Square, we have to
 go west, and then north into the area that you see with the paint on the wall.
 Once in that area, go to the far west and enter the house that you see. In
 that house is the bandit that stole your Coins. Talk to him and he'll give you
 your Coins back. When you get your Coins back, exit this house and head back
 to the Rogueport Square.

 Then, enter the Item Shop which is the building with the Fire Flower on it.
 Once inside, the Toad will explain to you about points when you buy Items.
 Once he's done talking, buy three Mushrooms, then buy three Honey Syrups, and
 three Fire Flower Items. Now, exit the Item Shop and go south and then west
 and you'll see Zess T the chef. She'll gripe at you not to move another step.
 Once she's done talking, walk west and step on her contact lens.

 She'll then become FURIOUS and scream at you and tell you that she's going to
 block the west gate until you buy her a new contact lens. You can't buy her
 one right now, but you can do something about this right now. Go to the Item
 Shop and talk to the first Toad that you see. He'll talk to the other Toad
 about the contact lens Mario asked him about, and then he'll tell you that
 they don't have a contact lens in stock.

 Once you regain control, exit the Item Shop and save your game. Then, head to
 where the bandit took your Coins at. Once there, go east and enter the
 building that is east from the Shine Sprite building. Once there, you'll meet
 Frankly. Once the talking ends, Frankly will join you, but he's not a party
 member, you can't even fight with him in battle. Anyway, exit the archaeology
 professors' study building and Frankly will tell show you a pipe and say that
 it is the way to go to the Thousand Year Door.

 He'll also ask you if you know your Action Commands which I have listed in the
 Game Basics section of this guide. If you are new to the game, then I suggest
 listening to Frankly's long lecture of Action Commands. Or, just look on the
 Game Basics section of this guide to learn about them. Anyway, when you're
 ready, jump on the pipe and press Down on the Control Stick to go down the
 pipe.


 Rogueport Sewers
 ----------------

 This is Rogueport Sewers. Save your game, then go east down the stairs and
 Goombas will hollar at you. Once the talking is over, you'll fight the
 Goombas, so beat them and head east up the stairs. Now, we're gonna have to
 get to that moving platform, so go northwest past the airplane platform that
 you see and get to where the red block beside the gate with the pipe is. Once
 there, go west and jump on the moving platform. Then, once you see another
 pipe, wait until the platform comes close enough to jump to that pipe.

 Then, make the jump for it. If you fail, keep trying until you get it. Once
 you enter the pipe, go east and defeat the flying Goomba that you encounter.
 The continue east and then go down the stairs. Then, break the "?" block and a
 Mushroom will pop out. Grab it and defeat the Spiky Goomba. Then, break the
 next "?" block and a Fire Flower will pop out. Your choice to keep the
 Mushroom or the Fire Flower.

 I chose the Mushroom, but that's just me. Anyway, after hitting the two "?"
 blocks, go west and destroy the two big yellow blocks and a pipe will be
 revealed. Go down the pipe. Inside this place, go east once you regain control
 and you'll encounter Punio, a Puni. You can't do anything with him right now,
 so continue east and defeat the two Spinia enemies spinning across the area.
 Then, continue east and you'll see a blue block with a "!" on it. Jump on it
 to reveal a staircase.

 Go up the stairs and ignore the airplane tile and enter the door that you see.
 Inside, examine the black chest that you see, and it will talk to you. Once
 you regain control, exit this room and in the previous room, go all the west
 until you're off the platform. You should drop down to where a Black Key is.
 If you fail in doing this, keep trying until you successfully drop down on the
 platform. Once you get the Black Key, go back to the room with the black chest
 and use the Black Key on it.

 A spirit will come out and put a curse on you. This allows you to turn into a
 paper airplane, which means you can use those airplane tiles that you've
 enountered and that I've talked about. Once you regain control, exit the room
 and go to the airplane tile just above the platform where the Black Key was.
 Now, press Y to turn into an airplane, and then fly over to the platform
 leading to the Thousand Year Door. This could take quite a few tries, as I'm
 not too good at this myself. Keep trying.

 Once you get on the platform, jump up off of the yellow block and onto the
 platform leading to the Thousand Year Door. Then, go west and enter the door.
 Inside, go down the stairs and jump on the platform in the middle of the room.
 Talking will commence; but just one sentence. Once that's done, you'll regain
 control so jump on the pedestal on the middle of the platform.

 More plot will commence, and in this plot, the Magical Map will show you your
 next destination which will be Chapter 1, and that will commence soon enough.
 You'll also learn Sweet Treat, which is your first Star Tech. Read the Game
 Basics section for more information on Star Techs. Once the plot is done,
 you'll appear back in Rogueport.


 Rogueport
 ---------

 Back in Frankly's place, more plot will commence. Frankly will tell you about
 Petal Meadows, which is where the first Crystal Star lies. Petal Meadows, as
 Frankly will say, is to the far east of Rogueport. Once the talking ends and
 you regain control, exit Frankly's place and Frankly will tell you to hold on
 and he'll give you a Power Smash Badge. Equip it once you regain control, as
 this is efficient for the game.

 Now, go back to Rogueport Square and save your game. Then, head back to where
 Frankly's building is. Once there, go down the pipe leading to the Rogueport
 Sewers.


 Rogueport Sewers
 ----------------

 Go down the stairs, and then go east up the next set of stairs to where the
 airplane tile is. Get on the airplane tile, and fly up to the ledge and go
 through the door. In this room, jump on the Bloopers' tentacle and you'll
 start a fight with him. Look in the Bosses section to see what to do in this
 fight. Once you beat him, two green platforms will appear in the water.

 Wait until the platform comes closer to you and when it does, jump on it and
 jump on the next platform when it comes close enough. Then, ride the second
 platform to the platform with a pipe on it. Once you get on the platform, go
 down the pipe and Chapter 1 will begin.


 Petal Meadows
 -------------

 Chapter 1: Castle and Dragon is where you'll get your first Crystal Star. Go
 west and save your game. Then, go east down the steps and you'll see rocks in
 the middle of the area. Goombella will ask what that noise is, then she'll
 tell you to look and then you'll see Hooktail, which you'll have to fight in
 the last part of this chapter. Once you regain control, go east and jump on
 the "?" block and a Mushroom will pop out. Grab it if your Items aren't full.

 Once you get the Mushroom, or toss it, or whatever, go east to the next
 screen. In this area, hit the pink "?" block and a Badge will come out. This
 Badge is called Close Call. Once you get it, fight the Goombas in the area or
 avoid them. Avoid them if you don't have much HP, but if not, I suggest
 fighting them. Anyway, once you get the Close Call Badge, go east from the
 entrance and hit the brown block that you see floating in the air.

 Hit it ten times to get 10 Coins. Once you get that, go east and go to the
 next area. In this area, Goombella will talk and tell you some information
 that if you press "X", she'll tell you about the current area that you're in.
 Anyway, once you regain control, head east and defeat the Goomba running
 around the area, as this makes this area alot easier. Then, after killing the
 Goomba, examine the two small bushes and you'll get 1 Coin out of each of the
 two bushes.

 Then, examine the two dark green big bushes; this will reveal a pipe. Go down
 the pipe and you'll be in the background instead of the foreground. Go east
 from the pipe and you'll eventually see a blue block with a "!" on it. Jump on
 it and a bridge will come out of the water and the bridge will slowly create
 itself until it is fully completed. Once the bridge builds, go back down the
 pipe into the foreground.

 Now, go across the newly formed bridge and once you cross that, go east and
 examine the bush directly west of the yellow "?" block to get a Fire Flower.
 If you don't need it or don't have enough Items to carry it, don't worry about
 it, as a Fire Flower isn't effective in the next part of the game. Anyway,
 once you get the Fire Flower from the bush, jump on the "?" block and a
 Mystery will come out.

 Take it if you want it, or if you have enough room for it. Now, head east into
 the next area. You're now in Petalburg.


 Petalburg
 ---------

 Welcome to Petalburg, home of the Koopa Troopas. The moment you enter here, a
 Koopa Troopa will greet you, and a bit of talking will commence. Once you
 regain control, go east and save your game. You can also check out this part
 of the village if you like. Go to the Item Shop if you need anything, but if
 not, then I don't suggest buying anything, as there isn't anything excessively
 useful in the Item Shop, and it hasn't changed from the one in Rogueport very
 much. Anyway, whenever you're ready, head east into the next area.

 In this area, go east and you'll see a pink house, which is the mayor's house,
 as the Koopa Troopa when you first walked in told you. Go into the pink house
 and talk to the mayor. Once the talking finishes, exit the building and head
 east and you'll get an e-mail. Read it and then continue going east and you
 will encounter a Koopa Troopa guarding the gate to the Shhwonk Fortress. Talk
 to him and he'll open the gate for you.

 Then, a Koopa Troopa with a band-aid on his face will stop you and talk to you
 for a minute. Then he'll tell you to ignore him and to forget it and he'll
 leave and Goombella will ask what that was all about and you'll regain
 control. Once you regain control, go east through the gate into the next area.
 There's a Star Piece in this area, so check the Star Pieces section of this
 guide for information on how to get it.

 Once you've gotten that, head east and defeat the Paragoomba flying around the
 area and once you've beaten it, head all the way east and defeat the Koopa
 Troopa that's in the area. Once you've beaten it, go east and defeat the
 Spikey Goomba. Now, break the "?" block with your Hammer to reveal a POW
 Block.

 Throw away a Fire Flower, or an unecessary Item if your Items are full, as you
 need this for the Shhwonk Fortress and it's coming up real soon. Anyway, once
 you grab the POW Block, jump onto the next platform and head east into the
 castle you see which is the Shhwonk Fortress.


 Shhwonk Fortress
 ----------------

 Once inside, examine the pedestal and defeat the Bald Cleft. The only way to
 defeat these guys are POW Blocks. Lucky for us, we have one, so just use it to
 defeat them. Once you win, go east into the next area. Outside, head east and
 defeat the Koopa Troopa that you come across. Once he's out of the picture,
 continue east and hit the trees until a Coin pops out of one of them. Once you
 get that, continue heading east, defeating all the enemies you come across
 until you get to the end of the area.

 Once there, examine the last two bushes you see to get a POW Block and 1 Coin.
 Make room for thw POW Block if you don't have enough Items, as you'll still
 need it for the enemies. Once you get these two Items, head east into the
 castle part of the Shhwonk Fortress again. Once here, examine the pedestal and
 an enemy will drop down. Enter battle with it, and defeat it with a POW Block.

 Once you do that, a door opens up like it did when you first entered the
 Shhwonk Fortress after beating the Bald Clefts. Go into the door and in this
 next area, head east and engage battle with the Koopa Troopa that you see.
 Beat it and then defeat the Paragoomba that is flying around the area. Then,
 examine the bushes until you find one that spits out 1 Coin. Once you get
 that, head all the way east up the platform until you come across a Restore
 Block.

 Jumping on this will fully restore all of your HP/FP. However, these things
 cost money, so be careful. This one only costs 5 Coins, though, so go ahead
 and use it if your in need of HP/FP. Then, whenever you're ready, head east
 into the castle part of the Shhwonk Fortress again. Once inside again, save
 your game and head east and examine the pedestal with the Thwomp on it. It'll
 wake up, or, if you prefer, come to life and talk to you.

 Once he offers for you to challenge him, say of course, and then a Mini-Game
 will commence. Read the Mini Games section on how to do this. Once you've
 completed the trivia quiz, or the enemy bashing, save your game and head down
 the pipe which is next to the pedestal where the Thwomp is. In this area, go
 through the west door and defeat the Fuzzy that you come across. Once you've
 done that, continue west and defeat the next Fuzzy you come across.

 Then, continue west into the next area. In this area, head west and grab the
 Moon Stone that's sitting in the middle of the room and then a Fuzzy will pop
 down after you get it. Beat it and then head back to the room where the pipe
 that you went down after winning the trivia quiz or beating the enemies took
 you, and in this room, go east and jump on the red "?" block and a Multibounce
 Badge will pop out.

 I suggest equipping this, for now. Also, equip Close Call if you haven't
 already. Once your equipped, head east through the door to the next area. In
 here, head east and defeat the two Fuzzies you come across. Then, continue
 east through the door into the next area. In this area, go east and grab the
 Sun Stone which is lying on the platform in the middle of the room. Then, once
 you get it, a Fuzzy will come down and attack you.

 Beat it and then head back to the room with the pipe and the red "?" block.
 Once there, you'll see a golden Fuzzy. It'll talk, and you'll eventually
 engage battle with it. To defeat it, attack the Gold Fuzzy with Mario, and
 he'll summon a Fuzzy Horde to attack you. You don't ahve to defeat the Horde,
 so just keep using Normal Jump and Headbonk on the Gold Fuzzy until you defeat
 it.

 Once you win and you regain control, head through the pipe. Now, make your way
 back to Petalburg.


 Petalburg
 ---------

 Okay, so we're back in Petalburg, and the first thing you need to do is stock
 up on Items if you need them. Make sure you keep filled on Mushrooms, Honey
 Syrups, as you'll need them. Whenever you're ready, make your way to the
 mayor's house and talk to him, and once the talking's done, exit his house.
 Now, head back to Petal Meadows.


 Petal Meadows
 -------------

 Once you're in the first area of Petal Meadows, head west and you'll be
 stopped by Koops again. Tell Koops yes when he offers to come with you to stop
 Hooktail. Once all the talking ends and you regain control, you'll have Koops
 in your party, so put him in instead of Goombella, as you'll need him for this
 part, and he is alot better than Goombella. Anyway, once you get Koops, go to
 the first area (the area that you arrived in through the pipe) of Petal
 Meadows and you'll see two pillars.

 Place the Sun and the Moon Stones in the correct rocks (the correct rocks will
 have sun and a moon "symbol" on them, which indicates that it is the correct
 rock). Once you place the Sun and Moon Stones on their correct rocks, two blue
 "!" blocks will appear. We're gonna have to hit the two switches
 simultaneously, and in order to do that, we're gonna have to use Koops's shell
 by pressing "X", so place Koops in his shell state by pressing and then
 holding X next to the platform with the Save Point and keep him there.

 Now, with Koops right there (make sure he is lining up with the blue "!" block
 on the left side), go (with Mario) to the right blue "!" block on the right
 side and jump on it and immediately let go of X and you should hit them both
 simultaneously. If you fail, keep trying like I told you and you'll get it.
 Once you get it, the pillar in the middle will collapse, revealing a pipe.

 Now, go in the pipe once its revealed and you'll be in the background.
 Once there, go east and enter the castle which is Hooktail's Castle.


 Hooktail's Castle
 -----------------

 Okay, this is your first real dungeon of the game, and it isn't too hard, but
 it is hard at times. Follow the path and save your game if you wish. Either
 way, go through the door leading to the next area. In this area, head east and
 drop down from the bridge instead of crossing it. You'll land on a platform,
 so jump across the rest of the platforms until you see a Badge. This Badge is
 an HP Plus Badge, which, the next time you level up, I suggest getting BP so
 that you can use this Badge, as it increases your HP by 5.

 Anyway, once you see the Badge, use Koops to get it. Then, jump across the
 platforms to the left this time, instead of the right and make your way up the
 platforms which lead back to where the bridge is. Once you get there, go west
 through the door and exit this area into the previous room. Here again, go
 west and jump on the yellow spring and hold Down on the Control Stick (make
 sure that when you hold Down, you aim to the bridge that the spring bounces
 you up to so that you can get on it) and get on the bridge.

 If you fail, you know the drill; keep trying. Once you get up there, replenish
 your HP/FP if you need to at the Recovery Block, and whenever you're ready,
 head east and go through the door to the next area. In this area, get on the
 airplane tile and fly across (going to the very edge of the airplane tile
 helps) to the platform that is waiting for you just beyond the distance.
 Once you make it there, head east through the door and you'll be in another
 area.

 In this area, go east and clear the room of the enemies swarming around this
 area. Then, jump on the pink "?" block and a Power Bounce Badge will pop out.
 Grab that, as you'll DEFEINITELY need it for the game, as it is VERY good. It
 allows you to jump on enemies until you miss an Action Command. Anyway, once
 you get that, continue east through the door into the next area. In this area,
 head east and more talking will commence.

 When you get the offer to read the letter from the corpse or not, choose yes
 or no, as it makes no difference, but I suggest reading it, as it'll give you
 advice on Hooktail's weakness. Anyway, once your ready to go, head east and
 examine the pink corpse and it'll come to life and laugh, and then once he's
 done talking, he'll summon up tons and tons of corpses. To get past this,
 simply run through them and keep smashing them with your Hammer as you run
 through them.

 You must clear enough of the corpses away so that you can get to the pink
 corpse. If you fail and the corpses kick you out into the outside part of the
 castle, keep trying until you get it. When you get to the pink corpse, touch
 it and it'll fight you. This could be classified as a boss battle, but I am
 not going to list it as such. To win this fight, have Mario use Normal Hammer
 (this I recommend) to defeat the Dull Bones.

 Then, have Koops use Shell Toss on the Red Bones and when Red Bones
 regenerates a Dull Bones, kill the Dull Bones again and have Mario attack Red
 Bones with Power Smash. Keep repeating this process until you win this battle.
 Also, refer to the Codes n' Secrets section of this guide for information
 about a secret that you can do in that battle, unless you've figured it out
 already.

 Anyway, once you've won that battle, go through the door that the red corpse
 was blocking earlier and in this room, beat the Dull Bones that you see and
 then jump on the Shine Block that you see to get a Shine Sprite. These'll be
 useful later. Read the Game Basics section of this guide for more information
 about them. Now, continue going east and defeat the next Dull Bones you
 encounter and then continue east some more and climb up the stairs.

 Then, go right and down off the platform and if you get it right, you'll land
 on a platform with a yellow switch and a purple switch. Jump on the purple
 switch and it'll cause another purple switch to fall down, so get up there
 where that new purple switch is and jump on it. Then, jump on the gray block,
 then once you're on that, jump to the next gray block, and then break the
 yellow block with your Hammer.

 Now, get back on the platform where the yellow and purple switch are. This
 time, jump on the yellow switch and the big black and yellow platform will go
 up in the air. Now, go to where the black and yellow block lifted up from and
 use Koops's shell to hit the red "!" block. Once you hit it, the stairs will
 reverse their directions and point in a westerly direction.

 Now, get off this platform and climb up the stairs and jump on the small
 rectangle platform that you see. Then, once you're up there, move west until
 you see a Castle Key in range (it's a red key). Once you see that, use Koops
 to retrieve it. Now, go back to the other rectangle platform and use Koops to
 hit the red "!" block. This will make the stairs go eastwardly again. Now,
 climb up the stairs and use the Castle Key on the door that's locked and it'll
 unlock, so enter the room.

 In this room, save your game and then enter the door. Then, in this area,
 defeat the Paragoomba flying around the entrance. Then, continue east and beat
 the Dull Bones that you encounter. Then, you'll see a red "!" block and a gate
 that's apparently closed, so in order to open it, you'll have to press the red
 "!" block. But before you can make it to the gate, it closes.

 Okay, go to where the red switch is and stand about two steps left from it and
 then hold X to launch Koops in his shell state and then, while Koops is in
 that state, go up to the gate thats locked and release Koops and he'll hit the
 red "!" block and the gate will open up, so go in it. Then, go east through
 the door (it's kind of hard to see it, but it's visible as well, so get in it)
 into the next room. In this room, examine to the Black Chest and once he's
 done talking, head east past the chest and enter the door.

 In this room, you'll see spike holes all in the room. No need to worry right
 this second, just go east and open the chest to get a Black Key. Now, the
 spike holes will actually create spikes. This means you have to get out FAST!
 Now, QUICKLY follow the path where spikes aren't blocking your way. Follow
 that exact path until you reach the door of this room.

 When you reach it, quickly open the door and then Koops will say that it was
 close and once the talking ends and you regain control, examine the Black
 Chest and use the Black Key on it. The spirit will come out of the chest like
 the other spirit did in the beginning of the game, and he'll put a curse on
 you as well. This curse doesn't disable your first curse that you got from the
 beginning of the game, but instead adds another one to you.

 This curse it cast on you will enable you to turn paper thin, which will give
 you the ability to get through in between two gate bars (Gee, does this two
 gate bar sound familiar or what?). Now, once you regain control of Mario, go
 back to the room where you hit the red "!" block with Koops just a few minutes
 ago. When you're there again, exit the gate by going in between two bars using
 paper thin.

 Once you get out, go to the first gate from the left and turn paper thin again
 and enter the gate and grab the Attack FX R Badge and equip it right away, as
 you'll need it for defeating Hooktail. That's right, this Badge is that "cr"
 "icket" the letter in the corpse was talking about. This is also Hooktail's
 weakness, since he hates crickets, this'll work to your advantage. Anyway,
 once you equip it, go left through the door into the previous room.

 Now, head back to the room where the first Save Point is in this level and
 jump on the yellow spring and then once you get on the bridge, use the
 Recovery Block if you need some HP/FP. Once you're ready, go east through the
 door to the next area. In this area, find the cell that has different bars
 from the other ones, and when you find it, turn paper thin and then enter it
 and move east once inside the cell until you find a Castle Key. Grab the
 Castle Key when you see it.

 Now, head back to the room where the huge black and green block is. In this
 room, save your game and then climb up the stairs and get on the big black and
 green switch and have Mario (with his face not his back) face the small green
 block and then use Koops's shell to hit the green block. Make sure you're on
 the edge of the huge black and green block before you launch and release
 Koops's shell.

 Keep trying until you hit it and once you hit it, the block will take a trip
 up to the air. Once it comes to a halt, get off it and climb up the stairs and
 then use the Castle Key to unlock the locked door that you see, and then go in
 it. In this room, hit the blue "!" switch with your Hammer, or jump on it and
 then a bridge will create in the empty space in the air.

 Now, once that happens, continue west and use Koops to hit the next blue "!"
 switch you see then the same thing will happen as it did when you hit the
 first blue "!" switch in this room. Anyway, once the bridge creates, go west
 and you'll find that there is no blue "!" switch to hit this time. What to do,
 what to do? You see the windows in this room on the wall, right?

 Well, find one that is different from all the other ones and then jump in it
 to enter it and once you enter it, head along the path until you see another
 window just like the one you entered a moment ago.

 When you see it, jump out of the window and then head through the door to the
 next area. In this area, defeat the Dull Bones and then head west up the
 stairs and then line Mario's face up (make sure that you're back is facing the
 wall west from the block and make sure you're not on the right side of the
 wall from the block) with the green block and then use Koops's shell to hit
 the block and get on the huge green platform and then release Koops's shell.

 Once the platform rises up in the air and comes to a halt, get on the platform
 it takes you to and go west and defeat the Dull Bones. Then, continue west and
 go through door to the next room. In this room, a cutscene will start and
 you'll meet Ms. Mowz. Once its over, open the chests in the room to get these
 Items: a Mushroom, a Castle Key, and a Honey Syrup. Also, there's a Shine
 Sprite block in here so break it to get the Shine Sprite.

 Once you have all that, exit this room. Now, before you do anything, notice
 how part of the bridge you're standing on is tore in one part, and is brown
 instead of gray? Well, when you see that, get on the brown part of the bridge
 and go up and if done right, you'll drop down onto a platform with a gate and
 a Life Shroom. Once you're there, turn paper thin and go through the gate and
 grab the Life Shroom, as you'll most definitely need this.

 Once you obtain that, drop off of this platform and get back up on the bridge
 you were just on a moment ago. Once you're there again, go east and defeat the
 Paragoomba and then continue east and unlock the door with your Castle Key and
 then enter it. In this next room, defeat the Dull Bones that you'll encounter
 and then beat the Paratroopa that you encounter and then continue east down
 the steps and beat the next Dull Bones you see.

 Then, go east and when you see a yellow block, hit it and then a medium-sized
 black and yellow platform will fall down. Now, make your back face the yellow
 block and make Koops hit the block, as usual, and then get on the medium-sized
 black and yellow block. Once you get this, get off the block and get on the
 small bridge with gates around it.

 Once you're on it, walk (don't run aross the small bridge) west and make sure
 you walk slowly. Keep going west until you see an airplane tile. Once you see
 that, turn paper thin and go through the gates and then step on the airplane
 tile and fly to the white platform that has a door on it. Keep trying if you
 fail until you get it. Once you're there, enter the door and in this room, go
 down the stairs to the south not the north, and hit the yellow switch.

 This causes the black and yellow block go down. Once that happens, use Koops
 to get the Castle Key. Now, if you want a Badge, drop down to where the huge
 yellow block went to and then grab the Badge which is a Last Stand P Badge. It
 isn't good unless you usually attack with your partner in front of Mario, and
 then its only good if you have your partner in front of Mario often.

 Anyway, if you get this, you will have to make your way back up to the room
 you just got the Castle Key in. This is annoying, I know, but you have to if
 you got the Badge. Once you get the Castle Key, from the entrance of that
 room, climb up the north stairs and not the south stairs and then climb the
 next set of stairs and then unlock the door with your Castle Key. Now, enter
 the door and in this room, go west and beat the enemies you encounter.

 Once the area is cleared of its enemies, go all the way west from the entrance
 of this room, and then follow the long path which leads to Hooktail. Once
 you've followed the path, defeat the Spiky Goomba, and then climb up the
 stairs and then use the Recovery Block to restore your HP/FP, as you'll need
 it for Hooktail. Then, save your game and then enter the door and inside
 you'll encounter Hooktail.

 Once the talking's over, getting ready to engage in battle with him. Read the
 Bosses section to see how to win. Once you've defeated Hooktail, he'll vomit
 up Koops's dad, whom he thought was dead for ten years. During the
 conversation between Koops and his dad, you'll get the Crystal Star from
 Koops's dad, which Hooktail had apparently eaten for a snack or a meal,
 whatever, I don't know.

 Anyway, once the talking's over, it will give you information about this
 Chapter and then you'll be given the opportunity to save your game. Do it and
 we're onto Peach's first event of the game.


 Peach's Event
 -------------

 Okay, this is the first time in this game that you'll get to actually play as
 Princess Peach. This is just like Paper Mario for the N64, only minus the
 Twink. Peach's scenario will start off with two X-Nauts and she'll be in Sir
 Grodus's room, and he is the leader of the X-Nauts. Grodus intends to conquer
 the world, and at this present moment, have an interrogation with Princess
 Peach.

 During the conversation, an X-Naut soldier reports to Grodus that a mustached-
 man with overalls has defeated Hooktail and taken the Crystal Star they were
 after. Grodus is surprised at this, and then he'll send Lord Crump to Boggly
 Woods to secure the next Crystal Star, as Mario will soon be after it. Then,
 Grodus summons an X-Naut and tells him to get the Shadow Sirens which are
 Beldam, Vivian, and Marilyn.

 Once Grodus and the Shadow Sirens get through talking, Peach will be in her
 room and then she'll talk to herself and once the talking ends, you'll gain
 control of Peach. When you gain control of Peach, head west through the door
 and in this room, examine the shower and once you regain control of Peach,
 exit this room and then Peach will find that the locked door to the east has
 opened.

 When you regain control, head east through the newly unlocked door. In this
 room, Peach will wonder where she is and you'll regain control after that. Go
 east and another door will open. Once you regain control, go in it and inside
 you'll meet TECXX which Peach calls TEC, as TEC told her she could call TEC
 that.

 TEC will ask Peach to tell him about love, and this will go on for quite a
 while. Once TEC is finished talking to Peach about love, he'll send her back
 to her room, and Peach's Event is over. You're now given the opportunity to
 save your game again, so do it and then we're onto Bowser's Event.


 Bowser's Event
 --------------

 Wow, this is new, you never got to play as Bowser on Paper Mario for the N64,
 but you do on Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. In this event, you'll see
 several of Bowser's henchmen, and then after a few seconds, Bowser will enter
 the room. Once you gain control of Bowser, talk to his minions if you want to.
 Whenever you're ready, go east and then Kammy Koopa will come and talk to
 Bowser about Mario, and then she'll ask him if he likes fried eggs.

 Answer yes or no, as it doesn't change the outcome of anything in this
 cutscene. Kammy Koopa will then tell Bowser that she was planning on taking
 everyone out to a picnic in Petal Meadows, and Bowser becomes infuriated.
 Then, Kammy Koopa tells Bowser about Princess Peach, and that someone has
 captured her, and Bowser also gets mad about this and then, as usual, sets off
 to capture Princess Peach.

 Kammy then follows Bowser and Bowser's Event ends. Now, save your game when
 you get the opportunity, and then we're back to Petalburg.


 Petalburg
 ---------

 Back in Petalburg, Koops's dad his girlfriend, and the mayor will talk for a
 bit and then once the talking's done, head over to Rogueport Sewers, and along
 the way, you'll get an e-mail from Princess Peach. Read it, then continue
 through Petal Meadows into Rogueport Sewers.


 Rogueport Sewers
 ----------------

 In here, make your way back to the main room of it (the room with the Save
 Point) and in there, go to the pipe that has the moving platform beside it,
 but this time you don't have to go on the moving platform to get to it, as you
 have the paper thin ability now, so use paper thin and slip through the gate
 where the pipe is, and then enter it. Then, in this room, follow the path and
 then head down the stairs and then continue west and then enter the pipe that
 you see.

 In this next room, go east and fight or avoid the Spinias and then climb up
 the stairs. Then, get on the airplane tile and fly yourself over to the
 platform that is waiting for you. Once there, go west through the door into
 the room with the Thousand Year Door.

 In this room, go on top of the pedestal in the middle of the room and then
 Mario will hold up the Crystal Star and you'll now have a location of a new
 Crystal Star added to your Magical Map. Once the cutscene is over, you'll be
 back at Rogueport in Frankly's house.


 Rogueport
 ---------

 Professor Frankly will talk yet again, and this time he'll tell you that the
 next Crystal Star is located in Boggly Woods, so that is your next
 destination, so get ready for another adventure. Once you regain control, exit
 Frankly's place and outside you'll see Luigi, talk to him if you want him to
 tell you a story, but his stories are all lies, so I wouldn't even bother.

 Anyway, I suggest going to the Item Shop to restock on some Items before you
 go to Boggly Woods, but if you don't need any, don't worry about it. Just sell
 all everything you don't need so that you can get some Coins, even if you have
 a lot. Once your errands are done, go to the Rogueport Sewers.


 Rogueport Sewers
 ----------------

 Back in the Rogueport Sewers, turn paper thin and slip through the gate that
 has the pipe (the one beside the moving platform) and then enter it. In this
 room, follow the path and head down the stairs, then go west and then enter
 the pipe that you always go through to get to the room with the Spinias.
 Anyway, once you get in that room, go east and you'll see Punio, which is a
 Puni and you'll need him for Chapter 2, and it's coming up real soon.

 Once Punio runs away and you regain control, go east and when you see that
 gate you've been passing up all this time (if you've noticed it) and turn
 paper thin and slipt through the bars and then enter the door leading to the
 room where Punio went. In this room, talk to Punio (he's located in the
 northwest corner of the room) and then he'll panic and think that you're going
 to eat him.

 Once you get the opportunity to tell him you are not bullies, or that you are,
 take note that this doesn't change a thing, except Punio panics, and Koops
 tells you that that was uncool, and that he thought you were nicer. If you
 tell him yes, this won't happen. Anyway, Punio will mention the X-Nauts have
 invaded the Great Tree, which Punio lives in.

 Once you regain control, go east where Punio went and talk to him, and he'll
 press a switch which opens up a passageway for you to in to get to Boggly
 Woods. Once that happens, climb up the stairs and enter the blue door and then
 go east and south and you'll find Punio. Take note that there is also a Badge
 here, so be sure to check the Badges section for information on how to get it.

 When Punio gets done talking, he'll follow you like Frankly did in the
 beginning, so enter the pipe Punio just told you about and Chapter 2 will
 begin.


 Boggly Woods
 ------------

 Chapter 2: The Great Boggly Tree is an annoying Chapter, but it depends on
 what kind of levels you like, but me, my brother, and my aunt all hate this
 Chapter. It isn't like the one in Paper Mario for the N64 (the tree in the N64
 one), instead it is very annoying and long if you don't know how to do it.
 Lucky for you, you've got this walkthrough to tell you how to do it. Anyway,
 once you enter Boggly Woods, go east and save your game. Then, continue east
 into the next area.

 In this area, go east and a cutscene will start with the three Shadow Sirens.
 Luckily, they don't know you're Mario just yet, so don't worry about having to
 fight them just yet. Once you regain control, head east and take note that
 there is Pale Piranha enemies here, fight them if you want, but it can get you
 killed if you fight too many enemies in the Boggly Woods, as they're stronger
 than the enemies in Hooktail's Castle.

 Take note also, that there is a Honey Syrup hidden in this area on the north
 side of the screen. Its hidden well, as it is covered up by snow and trees,
 but you can still see it. You may not notice it, but its there. Okay, here's a
 better way to explain: its where the trees are on the north side of the screen
 in the area where the Shadow Sirens are. Anyway, once you're done in the area
 with the Honey Syrup, head east into the next area.

 In this area, go east and you'll eventually see a pipe and then Punio will
 talk and you'll then see the Great Tree in the background. Punio will go in
 the pipe, but before you go in, notice how there's an orangish-yellowish thing
 is in the ground snow? Well, grab it and it turns out to be an Inn Coupon. I
 had two at this area, and I hope you do, too, as you'll need these. Now, enter
 the pipe Punio entered and then jump across the platforms and enter the Great
 Tree.

 Once here, head east and talk to Punio. He'll say that the door you see on the
 Great Tree was never there before, and  that it has been just installed. Once
 the conversation is over, follow Punio up the tree and then he'll say
 something about a secret entrance, and then he'll say that it'll be hard
 finding the secret entrance, and goes on to say that Madame Flurrie can help
 with this problem.

 Once the talking ends and you regain control, get off the tree and go west
 into the previous area. Before you can do anything, you'll see a house and
 someone talking. Gee, can you guess who this is? In this area, jump across the
 platforms and then go down the pipe back into the foreground. Now, go east
 into the next area. In this next area, go east and defeat the Cleft that's
 hiding in the snow, because it'll be alot harder to do this part unless the
 enemies are cleared out.

 Be careful not get killed, because you also have to fight a Dark Puff with the
 Cleft, which makes this battle a double doozy. Once you beat the Cleft,
 continue east and defeat the Dark Puff. An easy way to beat the Dark Puff
 since it has 4 enemies in that fight, is to use Earth Tremor and if you get it
 good enough, you'll kill all 4 enemies instantly.

 Now that the area is cleared of the enemies, head to the southeast corner of
 this room and enter the tunnel that you see. Its kinda hard to see, but it's
 there. The way to see this is the holes in the southeast corner of the area.
 When you see holes in the southeast corner, go through it and follow the path
 northwest and then when you see a blue "!" switch, jump on it and then the
 platform will raise up.

 Now, go left and grab the Star Piece. Then, follow the path back down to the
 tunnel and once you exit the tunnel, go west and go through the pipe that you
 haven't been in yet. Drop down off of the pipe and you'll see a Shine Sprite
 block. To get this, use Koops's shell and once you get it, turn into a paper
 airplane and fly east to the platform that awaits you. There's also a Quake
 Hammer Badge here in the pink "?" block so be sure to get it.

 Once you make your way to the platform from flying in paper airplane form (it
 could take a few tries) go east into the next area after recieving the Quake
 Hammer Badge from the pink "?" block. In this next area, defeat the Dark Puff
 and then once you defeat it, hit the trees until you find a Star Piece.

 Once you get that, continue east from the entrance of this area and then once
 Punio tells you that the house you see is Flurrie's place, turn paper thin and
 go through the open area of the black fence (this gap in the black fence is
 wider than the others on the black fence, so it is easily visible if you pay
 attention) and then go all the way east and you'll get a Volt Shroom.

 Now, go west until you see a pipe. When you see that, enter it and then jump
 across the platforms and enter Madame Flurrie's house. Once inside, Punio will
 talk for a second, so once he's done, save your game. Then, go up the stairs
 and Punio will hollar at Madame Flurrie to see if she's there. Now, examine
 the door you see and a cutscene will start. Apparently, Madame Flurrie has
 lost her necklace, and obviously Beldam has it, so we're gonna have to get it
 back for Flurrie.

 Once you regain control, save your game if you want and then when you're
 ready, exit Flurrie's house and then another cutscene will start with the
 Shadow Sirens again. Once the cutscene is over, jump across the platforms and
 enter the pipe once you reach it. Then, make your way back to the first area
 of Boggly Woods where the Shadow Sirens are. Once there, head west until you
 reach the Shadow Sirens, making sure to defeat all enemies along the way that
 you might have to.

 Once you reach the Shadow Sirens, they'll talk, as usual, and then you'll
 enter battle with them after the talking's over, so read the Bosses section
 for help on how to win here. Once you win, Beldam admits that she may have
 been a bit overconfident, and then the Shadow Sirens will run away and you'll
 regain control.

 Now, pick up Flurrie's necklace that Beldam drops and then make your way back
 to Flurrie's house and once you're there, save your game and then go up to
 Flurrie's door and press A on it and use the necklace. Then, Flurrie talks for
 a second, then opens the door and puts on her necklace, as you still mustn't
 see her without it. Once she puts it on, a disco will come from the ceiling
 and start playing and making the room pink, and then she'll come out and talk
 for a bit.

 Then, she joins your party. Once you regain control, save your game again and
 then exit Flurrie's house. Now, make your way back to the Great Tree and along
 the way, you'll get another e-mail. Read it. Once you're there, climb up the
 tree where the secret entrance Punio talked about is, and then use Flurrie's
 gust by holding "X". Hold X until you reveal the secret entrance.

 Punio will then go in and Flurrie will tell you that she used to be an
 actress, and she goes on and on for a bit. Once she's done talking, Punio will
 open the pink door from the inside and then he'll come out and then tell you
 to come there, and then Flurrie will tell you she's going to repay the Punio's
 debt and she'll tell Mario to come along.

 Once you regain control, enter the pink door. You're now inside the Great
 Boggly Tree.


 Great Tree
 ----------

 In here, examine the middle bush out of the three bushes you see to get a
 Coin. Then, continue east and a cutscene will start. And then in the cutscene,
 two X-Nauts will open another pink door and then they'll talk for a few
 seconds, and then you'll have to fight them. Just simply use your Hammer or
 jump on them to defeat them. Once you win, the X-Nauts will run away, and then
 Punio will find a Puni hiding back behind the pillars in the room.

 Then, another cutscene will commence, and more Punies will come out, and once
 the cutscene is over you'll regain control so use the Recovery Block to
 restore your HP/FP if you need it, then save your game. Now, go through the
 pipe you see and you'll be in a new area. In this area, head east and enter
 the pipe that you see, as you can't do anything else in this area right now.

 Once you enter the pipe, in the area it takes you to, jump off of the pipe try
 and hit the X-Nauts head so that you can get a First Strike. Once you beat the
 X-Naut, examine the bushes until you find a Power Punch. Then, go through the
 pipe into the next area. In this area, defeat the enemy that is in the area.
 Then, once you beat the enemy, follow the path and enter the pipe that you
 see.

 Then, a cutscene will start with an X-Naut soldier. Ms. Mowz will hit him from
 behind and knock him down, and then the scene switches to Mario, Flurrie, and
 Punio again. Now, a cutscene will commence and once all of its over and you
 regain control, go west through the door to the next area. Another cutscene
 will commence with Ms. Mowz Mario and once its over, the X-Naut accuses Mario
 of knocking him down, and you'll have to fight him.

 Beat him and then he'll drop a Red Key. Pick it up and open the chest you see
 for an Ultra Shroom which recovers 50 HP. Save it for later, though, because
 you'll need it. Anyway, once you get these two Items, exit this room and go to
 the red cell that the Puni Elder is in and use the Red Key on it to unlock it.
 Once you do that, a cutscene will commence and once its over and you regain
 control, exit this room and go to the first room of the Great Tree.

 Once there, use the Recovery Block to restore your  HP/FP if you need to. If
 not, don't bother. Then, save your game. Now, head west and another cutscene
 will commence. Once its over, you have 10 more Punies join you to fight the
 Jabbies and the X-Nauts, and rescue the rest of the Punies which means you
 have 11 Punies with you! You also get a Puni Orb from the Puni Elder, which
 you'll need in order to complete this level.

 Now, once you regain control, use the Recovery Block if you need to, and be
 sure to save your game. Then, go through the pipe and in that room, go to the
 pedestal in the middle of the room and step on it, and then it will change
 colors and the colors will keep changing. Anyway, once you step on it, examine
 the ugly face thingie that is just north of the pedestal, and place the Puni
 Orb on it.

 This will cause a pipe to be revealed, which you'll have to go down in order
 to get to the next area, so remove the Puni Orb and then go down the newly
 revealed pipe. In this next area, defeat the X-Naut running around and then
 examine the white console next to the pink door to open the pink door. Don't
 go in it unless you need to save, or recover at the Recovery Block, as it only
 leads to the first room of the Great Tree.

 Anyway, once you unlock the door, place the Puni Orb on the ugly face pillar
 like you did in the previous room. Now, use Flurrie's wind gust by holding
 "X". Why use the wind gust? Well, we're gonna have to blow these Punies that
 are staring at the Puni Orb off the platform they're on and blow them off to
 the lower part of the ground. Once they're blown down there, don't stop
 blowing yet.

 Instead, go to the edge of the platform that you're on and keep blowing and
 once you see bubbles come up, you'll see Punies in the bubbles, so keep
 holding down X with Flurrie. In other words, you're gonna have to keep holding
 X so that you can blow the bubbles with the Punies in them to the ledge on the
 other side.

 Once you've done that (it could take a few tries, as that part was hard to
 explain, but I tried my best), remove the Puni Orb and then jump to the middle
 pillar and then jump to the ledge where you blew the Punies. Once there, go
 down the pipe that you see, ignoring the ugly face thingie and once you go
 down the pipe, in the room it carries you to, follow the path and defeat the
 Pider that you see.

 Take note that there's a Shine Sprite in here, so be sure to check the Shine
 Sprites section of this guide to see how to get it. Once you get it, go down
 the pipe you haven't been down yet (not the one you entered this room with)
 and once you're on the lower part of this area where the pipe takes you,
 defeat the Pale Piranha that is around the area.

 Don't examine the bushes, as there is not one Item in them. Once you clear the
 room of the enemies, enter the pipe that's located in the lower levels where
 the Pale Piranha was before you defeated it. Be sure to enter the pipe that
 you haven't been through yet, and not the one that you entered to get to the
 lower levels. Once you enter it, you'll see a Jabbi, then Punio will talk for
 a bit.

 Once he's done talking, go east through the door that you see and once inside,
 go east and you'll hear some noise and then Jabbies will come out to fight
 you. There's only 10 of them, and with your 11 Punies, you can more than
 likely win. The Punies automatically fight the Jabbies, so therefore you don't
 have to worry about controlling the Punies. If you fail in defeating the
 Jabbies, keep trying until you defeat them.

 Once you defeat them, the Punies will enter the small hole and then they'll
 break a huge hole in the wall, thus enabling you to come into the room where
 they went, so go in there once you regain control. Once you get in this new
 area, open the chest you see to get a Blue Key. Now, exit this room and a
 cutscene will start with the rest of the Punies in the blue cell.

 Once it's over you'll regain control of Mario so head west and drop off the
 platform that you're on and then you'll be in the lower levels of this room.
 Once there, examine the huge bush in the middle to get a Star Piece. Once you
 get that, save your game and go back up the pipe and make your way back to the
 room where the red and blue cell is.

 Once there, use your Blue Key on the blue cell to unlock it and then another
 cutscene will commence. Once it's over, 90 more Punies will join your party,
 so you now have 101 Punies in your party! Now, head back to the room where the
 bubbles are and once there, place the Puni Orb on the ugly face pillar and
 then use Flurrie to blow off the Punis. Then, get to the edge like you did
 before and blow again until all the Punies get to the other side.

 Once they all get to the other side, remove the Puni Orb and then jump on the
 middle pillar and then jump on the platform where you blew the Punies. Then,
 go down the pipe and in this next room, follow the path and enter the pipe you
 come to which will take you to the lower levels of this room. You don't have
 to worry about any Pale Piranhas in this room like you did last time you came
 here, so make your way to the pipe in this lower level.

 This area you've visited already, as you'll probably notice. There is
 something you must know, however. There is Piders in this room, and the Punies
 are scared of them, so your gonna have to defeat them all in order to get past
 this part, so go ahead and follow the path across the room, defeating all the
 Piders. There's also a Badge in here, so read the Badges section to see how to
 get it.

 Once you get that and once you defeat the Piders, gather all the Punies that
 are lost and once you have 101/101 Punies again, remember how you went to the
 east room where the 10 Jabbie army awaited? Well, we're gonna have to go to
 the west room this time, so follow the path and enter the west door that you
 see.

 Once there, go west and that same noise will happen again and you'll have to
 fight a 100 Jabbie army, so do the same thing you did on the 10 Jabbie army,
 which is let the Punies fight. Flurrie's wind gust also works here, as it can
 provide some help, thus allowing you to win this battle a little easier. But
 be careful not to blow the Punies, because then you might not win.

 Keep trying until you win and once you win, go west through the door where the
 Jabbies came out from, and then in this next room, ignore the ugly face pillar
 where you can place the Puni Orb. Instead, go down the pipe that you see and
 in the area it carries you to, defeat the Pale Piranha and then examine the
 smallest bush in this room for a Coin. Then, go east through the door into the
 next area.

 In this area, examine the pillar (this time it isn't an ugly face pillar) and
 then place the Puni Orb on it, and then a jail cell will fall on top of Mario,
 Flurrie, and all 101 Punies! Lord Crump will then come and insult you by
 telling you how dumb you are and how amused he is at your stupidity. Once the
 talking's over and you regain control, turn paper thin and go through the bars
 of this jail cell and then Flurrie will say a few words, then you'll regain
 control so go down the pipe you haven't been down yet.

 In this next room, Flurrie will say a few more words again and then you'll
 regain control. Now, hit the black "!" switch and then you'll hear a rumbling
 sound. Flurrie will then say that she wonders what that was and then you'll
 regain control. Now, backtrack to the room where you found the Blue Key at and
 in that room, you'll notice that there is four white "!" switches.

 This is a puzzle, so in order to solve it, we're gonna have to input the
 correct symbol on each of the four pillars. First off, jump on the first
 switch and then jump until a sun appears on that pillar. Then, go to the
 second switch and jump on it until a moon appears on the pillar. Then, go to
 the third switch and jump until a Puni appears on the pillar. Finally, go to
 the fourth switch and jump on it until a star appears on the pillar.

 In order words, the four pillars must be in this exact order: sun, moon, Puni,
 and star so do that in that order and once you do, a rumbling sound will
 happen again and then the four pillars will be out of your way, thus revealing
 a door for to go through, so go through it. In this next area, open the big
 chest and you'll get the Super Shoes. Then, Toadette will give you a  briefing
 on how to use the Super Shoes, and what they do. Once you regain control, exit
 this room.

 Back in the previous room, butt stomp the black "X" square in the middle of
 the room by pressing A + A just like Toadette said. Once you butt stomp the
 black "X" square in the middle of the room, you'll drop down a hole into a new
 area. In this area, jump across the pillars and make it to where the Shine
 Sprite Block is and then once you're there, break the block to get another
 Shine Sprite.

 There's also a Badge in here, so jump across the platforms to the west instead
 of the east (as east is the direction where you got the Shine Sprite at) and
 then once you see the Badge in range, you can't reach it by jumping to it, so
 switch to Koops and use his shell to get it. Once you get it, switch back to
 Flurrie and then go up the pipe to the previous area.

 Now, backtrack to the room where the Punies are trapped at (in the jail cell
 that fell on you when you placed the Puni Orb on the pillar) and in that room,
 turn paper thin and slip through the gate to where the Punies are and then
 butt stomp the black "X" square. Now, you're gonna have to blow the Punies off
 like you did in the bubble room so make sure the Puni Orb is still placed in
 the pillar, as you have to have it placed in order to blow the Punies off into
 the hole.

 Be patient, however, because on this part, the Punies tend to not get in the
 hole right away, so this requires patience. Another useful strategy is to
 remove and replace the Puni Orb, as this allows the remaining Punies in the
 cell that didn't fall in the hole to regroup and gather to where the Puni Orb
 is. I strongly recommend doing this, because it is the only way I did it, and
 this saves alot of time if you do this.

 Once you get all the Punies down the hole, go down the hole yourself and then
 go through the pipe and then you'll be back in the room with jail cell, but
 you don't have to do anything in this room, so just head west and exit it and
 in this next room is a Star Piece so check the Star Pieces section to see how
 to get it, go west through the pipe and then in this next room, place the Puni
 Orb on the ugly face pillar and then use butt stomp on the black "X" square,
 and then it will reveal another hole and you'll drop down into the
 next room.

 Go back up the pipe that you've been through already (not the one that you are
 carried down to after you stomped the black "X" square but the other one in
 this room) and then you'll be in the room where you just placed the Puni Orb,
 so blow the Punies down the hole. Once you get them all down there remove the
 Puni Orb and jump down it yourself and then enter the pipe that you're dropped
 down to.

 In this room, follow the path and defeat the X-Naut along the way. Then, once
 the path ends, go down the pipe into the next room. In this room, defeat the
 Yux and then examine the bush in the middle of the room to get a Coin. Then,
 continue west and enter the pipe that you see, and you'll be in another new
 area.

 In this area, go south and go down the pipe and in this next area, jump across
 the three pillars to the other side and ignore the Shine Sprite, as you can't
 get it yet. Once you make your way to the other side, go through the big pipe
 and in the area it takes you to, jump on the light blue "!" switch and then
 use Koops and keep his shell there and then get off of the light blue "!"
 switch.

 Once the blue "!" switch pops back up, release Koops and then you'll hit the
 blue "!" switch, thus causing the water to drain in this area and rise in
 another. Once you regain control, walk off of this high platform and go to the
 pit where the water was and once there, open the chest to get a Shrink Stomp
 Badge. Then, switch back to Flurrie and then climb up the stairs and go back
 down the pipe (not the big pipe but the small one) and in the area it carries
 you to, walk on the lily pads and the pillars.

 When you reach the other side, go on the other lily pads and get the Shine
 Sprite out of the block. Now, go through the small pipe and in this room,
 place the Puni Orb on the ugly face pillar and then Mario and Flurrie will go
 to the pedestal that the Punies are on and you'll hear another rumbling sound.
 The pedestal will now go down to the lowest level of the Great Boggly Tree.
 Gee, this must be where the Crystal Star is.

 Remove the Puni Orb and use the Recovery Block if you need to, and then save
 your game. Then, examine the bush just south of the Save Point to get a
 Mushroom. Now, head east and go through the door into the next room. In this
 room, a cutscene will commence with Lord Crump talking about the Crystal Star.
 Lord Crump will then run away because he hears something and thinks that
 you're a mob.

 Now, head east when you regain control and place the Puni Orb on the ugly face
 pillar. Then, another rumbling sound will commence and the Crystal Star will
 rise out of the middle pillar. Lord Crump then comes and takes it and then
 during the conversation, Lord Crump is humiliated for you escaping his jail
 cell, as that obviously insulted him, so he turns on what he likes to call a
 "Remote Time Bomb Detonator".

 You now have 300 seconds to get to the first room of the Boggly Tree. Take
 note that you have to fight an X-Naut along the way, and you can't run away
 from them. Hurry and remove the Puni Orb from the pillar backtrack to the
 first room and FAST! Once you're there, use the Recovery Block if you need and
 then save your game. Now, head west and a cutscene will commence, where the
 Puni Elder challenges Lord Crump, but then the Elder's back starts acting up,
 so he can't challenge Lord Crump.

 Once the talking between those two is over, Flurrie tells Lord Crump a few
 things and then he'll stop the timer after a few more words. Then, he'll
 summon his robot machine, Magnus Von Grapple, which you'll have to fight, so
 read the Bosses section to see how to do this. Once you've beaten Magnus Von
 Grapple, his machine will explode and then he'll drop the Crystal Star.

 Then the X-Nauts will leave the Great Boggly Tree. You now have the second
 Crystal Star, AND you've learned another Star Tech which is Clock Out. Sadly,
 it isn't nearly as useful as Earth Tremor and Sweet Treat are. Once you get
 the opportunity to save your game, do it and we're onto Peach's next event.


 Peach's Event
 -------------

 In this Peach event, a cutscene will commence between the X-Nauts and between
 Lord Grodus and once its over, the scene will switch to Peach and she'll say a
 few words to herself about wondering things, and then the door will
 automatically open, and she'll say that it must be TEC's work again and then
 you'll gain control over Peach. Head east through the door that just opened
 and in this next room, head east and open the door and you'll be in TEC's room
 and then once you're in there, another cutscene between TEC and Peach will
 commence.

 This time, TEC wants to dance with Peach, so TEC will create a dance
 substitute which is a hologram of Princess Peach. Press the buttons displayed
 on the screen to dance. Once the dance is done, TEC will talk for a few more
 seconds, and then he'll tell Peach that he is going to fulfill his promise,
 and to use his communicator.

 Peach will then tell TEC to send another message, which goes straight to
 Mario, so get prepared to have another e-mail when you regain control of
 Mario. After TEC sends the letter, he'll tell Peach to go back to her room,
 because he wants to analyze the data which he thought was "fun" which is,
 evidently the dance he had with Peach.

 She'll then say that he is a weird computer, and then she'll go back to her
 room after TEC tells her good night. You'll now get another opportunity to
 save your game, so do it and we're onto the next Bowser event.


 Bowser's Event
 --------------

 This Bowser event is a little more fun than the last one that you had, because
 this time, you get to play with Bowser, but you don't get to play RPG style
 with him, but instead you get to play with Bowser the way you used Mario in
 the first Mario game for the NES. Anyway, when this event starts, you'll see
 Bowser and Kammy Koopa in Petal Meadows, then they'll talk for a minute, and
 then you'll get to play as Bowser, and you get to play with him in a level and
 a gamestyle JUST like the old original Mario for the NES.

 Sweet! You start off at world 1-1 and sadly, you only get to play one level
 and that's it for now. If you get killed, you have to start from world 1-2
 instead of world 1-1, and if you get killed two times, you have to start from
 world 1-3 instead of world 1-2 and so on and so on. Once you've beaten the old
 Mario gamestyle event, Bowser will arrive in Petalburg and then the Koopa
 Troopa will greet him, but then once he finds out who Bowser is, panic and
 tell everyone to hide.

 Bowser and Kammy Koopa (after Bowser gets finished running his mouth) then
 advance through Petalburg, and Bowser starts talking to a Peach poster, which
 he "thinks" is Princess Peach. Kammy comments on how she's so overcome with
 joy that she's been left speechless. Bowser then talks for a minute, and then
 the Koopa Troopa who owns the Peach poster says that he would rather die than
 give it up.

 Then he'll flip the poster over and replace the poster with the window. Bowser
 will then become embarrassed that he talked to a poster, and Kammy will say
 that she didn't see that coming, then Bowser will say a few more words, and
 this event is over. You now have yet another opportunity to save your game, so
 save it.


 Boggly Woods
 ------------

 Back in Boggly Woods, Mario, Flurrie, and the Punies are all standing outside
 of the Great Tree. Once everyone gets done talking and you regain control,
 exit the Boggly Woods and along the way, you'll get another e-mail. It's from
 Princess Peach, as it is the letter that TEC just sent after she wrote it.
 Once you read it, exit the Boggly Woods completely and make your way to
 Rogueport Sewers and save your game along the way.


 Rogueport Sewers
 ----------------

 Back in the Rogueport Sewers, head to the Thousand Year Door and once there,
 step on the pedestal in the middle of the room, as usual, and then another
 cutscene will commence. Your magical map will reveal yet another location for
 the next Crystal Star. Now, once this cutscene is over, you'll automatically
 be back in Rogueport.


 Rogueport
 ---------

 Professor Frankly will talk about the next Crystal Star, and tell you that it
 is located in Glitzville, which is obviously your next destination. Once the
 talking's done and you regain control, head to the Rogueport Square and save
 your game. Now, let's go see Don Pianta. Normally, we'd have to pay 78 Coins
 if we didn't know what to do, but since you have this guide, you don't have to
 pay 78 Coins, but alot less which saves alot of time as well.

 Now, go to the Item Shop and buy a Contact Lens. Then, give it to Zess T. and
 she'll talk for a bit once you give it to her, then she'll go into her cooking
 place. Once that happens and you regain control, head west through the place
 where Zess T. was blocking before you gave her the Contact Lens and once
 there, head west and enter the Item Shop when you see it, and once there, buy
 a Dried Shroom and a Dizzy Dial in that exact order.

 Then the ghost shopkeeper will ask you what color is your mustache, so answer
 anything, and then she'll say that that was the wrong question, and then
 she'll go on to ask you what is your favorite color, so answer "Yellow" and
 then she'll open a passage which leads to Don Pianta. See, we would've had to
 pay some guy 64  Coins in order to find out this Dried Shroom/Dizzy Dial and
 favorite color thing. But, since you have this guide, you don't have to waste
 78 coins, but instead just simply 14 Coins.

 Anyway, once she opens the passage for you, go through the door and then climb
 up the stairs and once you see another door, enter it and you'll be in Don
 Pianta's office. Once there, go east and go to Don Pianta's desk, and then
 he'll start talking. Don Pianta, in the conversation will say that if you do
 him a little favor which is finding his daughter Francesca, and her boyfriend
 which is one of Don Pianta's associates whos name is Frankie, and bring them
 to him, he'll give you a Blimp Ticket to get to Glitzville.

 Once the talking's over and you regain control, head to the harbor (the area
 you first arrived in Rogueport when Mario was carried by boat travel) and once
 there, go to where the boat that carried Mario to Rogueport was, and you'll
 see Francesca and Frankie. Talk to them and then tell them whatever you want,
 as it doesn't change that much, except Francesca gets mad at you if you tell
 her you won't pretend that you didn't see her and Frankie.

 Now, once you have talked to Frankie and Francesca, head back to Don Pianta's
 place and then go to Don Pianta's desk, and he'll talk again and another
 cutscene will commence. When Don Pianta asks you if you've found his daughter
 and his associate, tell him yes, and then Don Pianta will say that he
 appreciates the favor that you've done for him, and then he'll order his two
 cronies to go and get Frankie and Francesca from the harbor, but then Frankie
 and Francesca will enter the room and another cutscene will commence.

 Once the cutscene is over, talk to Don Pianta and he'll say a few things and
 then he'll give you a Blimp Ticket. Then he'll say that he doesn't want to see
 your gloomy mug ever again. Now that we've got the Blimp Ticket we can go to
 Glitzville, so exit Don Pianta's place and then enter the Item Shop and exit
 it. Then, head east and north and you'll get an e-mail.

 Read it if you want, and once you're ready, continue north from where you got
 the e-mail and then enter the area that you see. In this area, save your game
 and head east and talk to the fish and then he'll ask to see your Blimp
 Ticket, and then he'll see that you have one and tell you to watch your step
 and you'll regain control.

 So head east and go down the pipe and then head west into the blimp and press
 A when the "!" symbol appears above Mario's head. Now, once the blimp travels
 to Glitzville, Chapter 3 will begin.


 Glitzville
 ----------

 Chapter 3: Of Glitz And Glory, is the funnest Chapter I've played so far in my
 opinion, as all you do is fight, fight, fight. I gained 3 levels in here, so
 this is definitely a great spot to level up. Anyway, once this Chapter begins,
 you'll see the blimp arrive at Glitzville, so press A and you'll go to the
 next scene. Welcome to Glitzville! Once you regain control, go northwest and
 save your game.

 Take note that there is a Shine Sprite here, so check the Shine Sprites
 section to see how to get it. Once you get it, head to the Item Shop and once
 there, buy three or four Super Shrooms, but first sell off all of your old
 Items that you don't need. Also when you buy the Super Shrooms, be sure to
 conserve them, as you'll need to use them wisely.

 In other words, don't just use them if you have low HP, because even if you
 get killed in a match in the Glitz Pit, it doesn't mean Game Over. It just
 means you'll start back at the locker room and your rank could go down.
 Anyway, once you buy the Super Shrooms, stock up on whatever else you may
 need.

 Then, whenever you're ready, save your game at the Save Point you used earlier
 in Glitzville, and then enter the Glitzville fighting arena which is the
 building with the Chomp on it.


 Glitzville Fighting Arena
 -------------------------

 When you get here, head up the stairs and then once you see double doors,
 enter those double doors and you'll arrive in a room where you can see the
 Glitz Pit, which is obviously where people fight. A cutscene will now commence
 with the Rawk Hawk and the Koopinator. The Rawk Hawk beats the Koopinator with
 one jump, and then calls him a wimp. Grubba comes and then asks the Rawk Hawk
 his comments on the match, and Rawk Hawk taunts and says that it wasn't a
 match, and that no one can beat him.

 Rawk Hawk also has a Crystal Star on his belt! Mario's partner then gets
 surprised at the Crystal Star on the Rawk Hawk's belt and then asks you what
 you and you partner should do, so answer the second answer, which is fight
 your way to the top. Once you regain control, head down the stairs and then go
 west if you got off the stairs at the east side instead of the west side
 and/or vise versa.

 Once you make your way to the west side of the Glitzville Fighting Arena, talk
 to the blue guy with shades on (he also has yellow hair, so he shouldn't be
 that hard to notice) and he'll let you through to the hallway. Now, enter the
 door and head west and save your game. Then, continue west past the Save Point
 and then talk to the guy with the shades that is blocking the door to Grubba's
 office.

 (The door he's blocking has a tile on it thats white and gray, so that's how
 you tell that this is Grubba's office.) Take note that all the other doors
 have different tiles on them too which indicate what the door leads to.
 Anyway, once the guy with the shades moves out of the way, enter the door to
 Grubba's office. Once inside, talk to Grubba and he'll eventually ask you if
 you want to become a fighter, so tell him yes.

 He'll talk for a bit more, and then once the talking's over, he'll lead you
 out of his office and he'll lead you into another door which is the champion's
 room, which you can't use until you become the champ in the Glitz Pit. Now,
 you'll automatically be taken to the major-league locker room and then once
 the talking's over, you will be back in Grubba's office.

 He'll ask you to sign a contract to be a fighter, so say yes and then he'll
 call Jolene in there, and he'll explain to her who you are and then she'll
 carry you to a minor-league locker room, where you'll have to stay until your
 rank in the Glitz Pit reaches 11. Don't worry, it'll be explained in the game
 in just a minute. Now, Jolene will talk for a minute, and once she's done
 talking, go up to the computer on the wall which looks like a Gameboy Advance,
 and then Grubba will reserve a match for you against the Goomba Bros.

 Don't worry, Grubba is right, these guys aren't hard. Take note that whatever
 Grubba tells you to do in the fight (i.e. get hit three times before
 attacking), then you do it. If you disobey him, you'll have to fight the same
 enemies time and time again. Whereas you obey what he tells you to do in a
 fight, you'll only fight your opponent once, so I STRONGLY suggest obeying him
 unless you want to level up alot.

 Anyway, I made a list of people you have to fight in the minor leagues and
 major leagues which is listed in the Glitz Pit section of this guide, so be
 sure to check there for strategies for each fight you have to undertake. Now,
 once "Security" comes to take you to the match, you can still talk to everyone
 in this room to get to know them better, if you would say that. Anyway,
 whenever you're ready talk to the Security Guard and he'll take you to the
 Glitz Pit where you'll have to fight the Goomba Bros, as well as all your
 opponents.

 Read the Glitz Pit section of this guide for a strategy on the Goomba Bros.
 Once you beat them, your rank will rise to 19, and then Jolene will you give
 you your fight money which is 3 Coins. Don't worry, you'll get a lot higher
 salary, don't worry. Once Jolene leaves the room, King K. will talk to you and
 then he'll introduce you to the people in the locker room with you, and
 they'll all give you advice.

 Now, rest in the bed if you need to recover your HP/FP. Then, exit the minor-
 league locker room and save your game and then come back in the locker room
 and then use the computer to reserve another match. You'll have to fight the
 KP Koopas. Once you beat them, exit the room and save your game and then come
 back in the locker room. Now, once you beat the KP Koopas, use the computer
 and you'll fight the Pokey Triplets.

 Check the Giltz Pit section to see how to win against them. Once you defeat
 them, King K. will talk for a minute, and then Jolene will chew Bandy Andy
 out, as he is breaking the rules of the Glitz Pit. Now, rest and save your
 game and and then you'll have to fight the Dead Bones. Check the Glitz Pit
 section for information on how to defeat them. Once you defeat them, rest and
 save and you'll fight Spike Storm next.

 Read the Glitz Pit section to see how to defeat them. Once you defeat them,
 King K. will tell you that there is a Hot Dog outside that has an egg from a
 southern island for an ingredient, and that some fool said it was supposed to
 help you win fights, and that you should go get you one. If you want to,
 that's fine, but I don't recommend wasting 10 Coins for one Hot Dog, as they
 aren't very good.

 Now, rest and save your  game and then go outside and a cutscene will commence
 with the egg that's supposed to be the Hot Dog ingredient. It will be bouncing
 around so in order to get it, you have to position yourself where the egg will
 bounce, so watch its movements movements, and once you figure them out,
 position yourself where the egg will bounce, and it'll eventually touch you,
 thus causing it to go up on top of the concession stand so you'll have to go
 get him down from there.

 How? Well, head southeast from the Glitzville Fighting Arena building and
 you'll see the juice bar, but don't go in there. Instead, go south from the
 juice bar and you'll see a huge blue "!" block and two crates, so jump on the
 small crate and then jump on the big crate and then get on the blue "!" switch
 and butt stomp it and  then stairs will create from the juice bar. Now, climb
 up the stairs  and then open the chest you see to get a Power Plus P Badge.

 Read the Badges section to see what it does. Equip if you want to and whenever
 you're ready, jump on the yellow spring next to the Rawk Hawk picture and then
 make yourself springboard to the airplane tile. Then, once you get on the
 airplane tile, go to the very edge of the airplane tile, and then fly over to
 the place where the egg is.

 Once you're there, say the positive answers each time you get the choice to
 tell the egg something. Once you get the egg to follow you, save your game and
 head back to the minor-league locker room and right before you enter the
 Glitzville Fighting Arena, you'll get another e-mail. Read if you want to.
 Once you're in the minor-league locker room use the computer and you'll have
 to fight the Hand-It-Overs which are ranked 14 in the Glitz Pit.

 Read the Glitz Pit section to see how to win this next fight. Once you've won,
 King K will tell you to go bring him a hottie from the juice bar, but you
 can't do anything about it. Now, rest if you need to and save your game and
 then use the computer and you'll now fight the Mind-Bogglers. Read the Glitz
 Pit section as always, to see how to beat them. Once you win this match, King
 K will tell you that he's thinking about retiring soon and after next match
 he's gone.

 Rest if you need to but be sure to save. Then, use the computer and you'll
 fight the Punk Rocks, which are ranked 12 in the Glitz Pit. See to the Glitz
 Pit section of the guide to see how to defeat them. Once you defeat them, rest
 and save and then use the computer and you'll have to fight the Bob-omb Squad
 which are ranked 11 in the Glitz  Pit. Read the Glitz Pit section of this
 guide to see how to defeat them.

 Once you win, Cleftor and the Bob-omb will talk about King K and how lonely it
 is without him, though Cleftor goes on to say it seems normal to Cleftor but
 Bob-omb tells him he's in denial, as he saw him weeping  in that locker room.
 After they get done talking, a new fighter comes in, but  you don't get to
 fight him like you did King K, Bandy Andy, Cleftor, and Bob-omb. Sir Swoop is
 this new guy's name.

 Anyway, once you regain control, rest and save and then use the computer and
 then you'll have to fight The Armored Harriers and they are ranked 10 in the
 Glitz Pit, which means they are in the major-league. You can't even defeat
 them, as all your attacks have absolutely no effect on them, so just run away.
 Once you get back in the locker room, you'll find out that the egg has hatched
 and become a Yoshi! Sweet! Name the Yoshi whatever you want when you get asked
 what his name is.

 Once you regain control, save the game and then use the computer again and
 you'll rematch The Armored Harriers. Defeat them, and you'll become a major-
 leaguer. Check the Glitz Pit to see how to beat these guys. Once you beat
 them, Jolene will give you your fight money, and she'll tell you that Grubba
 wants to see you at his office, and then Mario will automatically follow her
 and another cutscene in Grubba's office will commence.

 During the cutscene, Grubba gives you 30 Coins! Wow! Once the cutscene is
 over, Jolene will take you to the major-league locker room and then she'll
 talk for a few seconds, and then she'll leave the room. Now, the Rawk Hawk
 will come in and say that he hears that there has been a newcomer tearing
 apart the league, and he'll find out that it is Mario, and he'll start
 taunting him.

 Then, Yoshi will start making fun of him, and Rawk Hawk will get mad and
 eventually he'll shut his big mouth and leave the room and Yoshi will say a
 few words and you'll get an e-mail from a person named "X". Apparently this
 "X" guy is going to help you get the Crystal Star. Now, rest and save and then
 talk to the people in this locker room if you want.

 Whenever you're ready, activate the computer again and you'll fight the Tiny
 Spinies which are ranked 9 in the Glitz Pit. As always, check the Glitz Pit
 section to see how to win this next fight. Once you win, you'll get another e-
 mail from X. The mail will tell you to go to the watering hole outside the
 Glitz Pit. Now, exit the Glitz Pit and save your game then go southeast and
 enter the juice bar and inside, talk to the green ugly guy with glasses.

 He'll talk for a minute and then he'll give you the Super Hammer that someone
 supposedly gave to him. Once you get it, Toadette will give you an explanation
 on how to use it which is by holding down "B" and "rotating" the Control Stick
 and then "releasing" the Control Stick once you're fully charged up. Anyway,
 once you get the Super Hammer you'll get another e-mail from X. This time it
 says to smash the blockade in the minor- league locker room.

 Once you read it, be sure to go behind the counter where they serve the juice
 and you'll find a Star Piece in the western corner of the counter. Now, exit
 the juice bar and save your game and then go back into the Glitz Pit and once
 inside, go to the minor-league locker room and on the way you'll see Jolene
 and a Security Guard talking about some information you have no business with
 according to Jolene.

 Once you regain control after the cutscene, head to the minor-league locker
 room and talk to the Security Guard blocking it and he'll let you through.
 Once inside, go south and use your Super Hammer on the big yellow block and a
 room will be revealed so go inside and once inside, jump on the brown crates
 and then jump on the ledge above it. Then, press X to get on Yoshi and then
 once you're on Yoshi, fly to the ledge with the paper on it.

 Once up there, grab the paper and once you regain control, go back to the
 minor-league locker room and Jolene will be there and talk for a minute and
 then she'll take the paper you just recieved. Now, exit this locker room and
 go back to the major-league locker room and once there, rest and then save
 your game.

 Now, activate the computer and you'll fight The Poker Faces so read the Glitz
 Pit section to see how to win. Once you win, The Armored Harriers will show up
 for the third time to fight you. Look at the Glitz Pit section to see how to
 beat 'em down again. Once you defeat them and get back in the locker room,
 you'll get your fight money from Jolene and then you'll get another e-mail but
 it's not from X. It doesn't have a name of the sender, so who sent it? It is
 just a threat mail.

 Now, rest and save and then use the computer and you'll have to fight The
 Magikoopa Masters who are ranked 6 in the Glitz Pit, so read the Glitz Pit
 section of this guide to see how to do it. Once you win, Jolene will give you
 your fight money, and you'll have a cake in here that you can eat, as a fan
 brought it so eat it if you want to and whenever you're ready, save and then
 use the computer again and you'll fight The Fuzz so read the Glitz Pit section
 to see how to do it.

 Once you win, rest and save and then activate the computer again and you'll
 fight the Craw-Daddy, so read the Glitz Pit section of this guide to see how
 to win this next fight. Once you yet another fight, after Jolene gives you
 your fight money, you'll get yet another e-mail from X. This time X tells you
 to go to the phone booth on the pavilion and on the way to the phone booth,
 you'll meet the Rawk Hawk and he'll threaten you.

 Now, once he's done talking and you regain control, exit the Glitz Pit and
 then save your game and to the southwestern corner of the screen (make sure
 you go southwest when you exit the Glitz Pit) and on the way you'll meet the
 Rawk Hawk and  he'll talk some more. Once you're at the phone booth, go inside
 the phone booth and grab the Storage Key and then head back into the Glitz
 Pit.

 Right when you get out of the phone booth, X will e-mail you again and tell
 you to go to the storage room next to Grubba's office. Once inside the Glitz
 Pit again, head through the door leading to the hallway and once in the
 hallway, save your game and from the door leading to the major- league locker
 room, go west until you see a metal door with a lock on it. (In other words,
 head to the place where Jolene and the Security Guard were arguing about
 "important matters that you have no business with" at.)

 Once you see that lock, use the Storage Key on it and once inside the storage
 room, you'll see Ms. Mowz and she'll talk for a bit, as usual. Once Ms. Mowz
 leaves the room, you get yet another e-mail from X. This time it says find the
 staircase switch leading to the attic. Once you regain control, switch to
 Flurrie and then blow the blue blocks with her gust of wind. Make sure you
 blow up the blue boxes to the left and not the right.

 However, the right side does have a Badge, so get the Badge if you want.
 Anyway, once you blow the blue boxes to the left, yellow blocks will be
 revealed, so smash all nine with your Hammer. Then, go west from the entrance
 of this room and you'll step on a switch which the e-mail from X that you just
 recieved a moment ago told you about, which was finding the staircase switch
 leading to the attic.

 Anyway, once you do that, climb up the newly revealed metal staircase. Once
 you climb it, you'll probably notice the Shine Sprite block. Just get under it
 and jump to get it. Once you get it, go west since you can't do anything to
 that locked door yet. Make sure you have Yoshi for this part, as you have to
 have him to do this next part.

 Anyway, once you head west, jump on the small crate and then jump on the big
 crate (don't worry, you'll see them after heading west), and then get on Yoshi
 with X and then get close to the edge, but not exactly on the edge, and fly
 over to the set of crates. This could take a few tries, but you'll get it.
 Once you get on the set of crates, use the Super Hammer on the huge yellow
 block and then a hole will be revealed.

 Don't go in just yet, because we're gonna get that Badge you see in the
 corner. Jump back on the crate that you landed on after using Yoshi to fly
 over here. Then, use Koops's shell or fly to it with Yoshi to get it. Once you
 get it, head down the newly revealed hole, and once there, follow the path
 until you see a light (it may be hard to see, but it's there.) Once you see
 that, examine it when an "!" appears above Mario's head, like always.

 Once you examine it, you'll see a cutscene with Jolene and Grubba talking.
 Once Jolene leaves, Grubba will talk for a minute or so more, and when he says
 the ceiling is spooking him out, you have to make him think your a rat, a cat,
 or a burping beetle. Say whatever you want, and then Grubba will be relieved
 that its just one of those three things you acted like, as he thought someone
 was eavsdropping.

 Once you regain control, go left and turn paper thin and drop down the grate
 and you'll be back in the entrance of the storage room. Now, exit this room
 but get the Badge if you didn't get it. Once you exit this  room, save your
 game and go to the major-league locker room and reserve another match and
 you'll have to fight Hamma, Bamma, and Flare. Read the Glitz Pit section to
 see how to win this fight. Make sure you rest before fighting these guys if
 you need to.

 Once you beat them, you'll get another e-mail but this time it doesn't have a
 name, just like the hate mail we got that had no name. Once you regain
 control, rest and save. Then, reserve another match and you'll fight Chomp
 Country which are ranked 2 in the Glitz Pit. Read the Glitz Pit section of
 this guide to see how to win this next fight. Once you win, rest and save and
 then activate the computer and you'll fight The Koopinator.

 Check the Glitz Pit section to see how to win this fight before the Rawk Hawk.
 Once you win it, you'll get another e-mail from X. This time X will tell you
 to remove the posters of the Great Gonzales in the lobby, so go to the lobby
 and go up the stairs and blow the poster to the west and another Storage Key
 will drop down.

 Head to the storage room and go up the metal staircase and use the Storage Key
 on the locked door you passed up earlier to unlock it. Once inside the
 unlocked door, jump on the crates and use Yoshi to fly over to the set of
 crates. Then, break the huge yellow block with your Super Hammer and then
 you'll see Bandy Andy and King K! Talk to Bandy Andy and he'll tell you not to
 get near the ring and, well, if you talk to King K, he'll just say nothing, as
 he's badly hurt.

 Anyway, once you're done here, exit this room and before you can exit, you'll
 see Jolene and then she'll close the door and your partner will say a few
 words and then you'll regain control. Head back to the hallway and save your
 game and then rest if you haven't already. Then, use the computer and you'll
 fight the championship fight which is against the Rawk Hawk.

 Once the Security Guard comes in, talk to him as usual, and instead of
 arriving at the ring, you'll be in the hallway with the Security Guard and
 he'll take you the minor-league locker room and he'll leave the room and lock
 the door. You're locked out! What to do? What to do? The scene will now switch
 to the ring where the Rawk Hawk enters the ring at.

 Once the cutscene with the Rawk Hawk and Grubba is over, Yoshi will find out
 that you are locked in. Now, switch to Flurrie and go to the southeast corner
 and use her wind gust to blow away the paper. Now, enter the door you just
 revealed and go east and enter the door you see. Then, in this next room, head
 east from where you enter this room and enter the blue door you see.

 Then, you'll be in the bathroom, so jump on the toilet and go down it like a
 pipe. Once you get to the next room and regain control, enter the red door and
 you'll be back in the major-league locker room. Exit it and then go through
 the huge door in the hallway (the guard will move when you are near it), and
 you will arrive in the arena, where the Rawk Hawk awaits. You'll have to fight
 him obviously, so see the Bosses section to see how to win.

 Once you win, Grubba will give you the Champ's Belt Rawk Hawk had and Jolene
 will carry you to the championship's room. Once Jolene leaves the room, you'll
 hear a voice which they think is a ghost.

 Once you regain control, jump on the crates on the left side of the screen,
 and then get on Yoshi by pressing X, and then fly to the doorframe. Then, once
 on there, fly to the armoire and then use your Super Hammer to break the
 silver thing leading to the air duct. Once you break it, enter it and then
 you'll be in the air duct.

 Head east and you'll hear a voice which is Grubba's. Once Grubba gets done
 talking, use your Super Hammer on the silver thing to break it. Then, head
 down it and you'll be in Grubba's office. Once you regain control, go to his
 desk and examine his right drawer to get a Star Piece. Then, examine his left
 drawer to get the blueprints for the Crystal Star. Now, rest if you need to.

 Then, save and go to the doors that you went through to fight the Rawk Hawk.
 Then, once you do that, a cutscene will commence and Grubba will talk and
 transform into Macho Grubba and you'll have to fight the third boss, so read
 the Bosses section to see how to win. Once you win, another cutscene will
 commence and Jolene will get her brother, Prince Mush back out of Grubba's
 power-sucking machine, and you'll get your next Crystal Star!

 Congratulations! Peach's event is now at hand, so save your game when given
 the chance and get ready for it.


 Peach's Event
 -------------

 In this Peach's event, head east through the door into the next room. In this
 room, head east through the door into TEC's room. Once there, another cutscene
 with Peach and TEC will commence. Once the cutscene is over and you regain
 control, exit this room and head west and enter the elevator that opens up.
 Then, in this next area Peach will notice an X-Naut soldier walking around the
 area.

 Once you regain control, head east from the elevator through the door which
 the green light above it into the next area. In this area, TEC will tell you
 where the X-Naut suit you're gonna have to get in is. (That's right, you gotta
 dress up as an X-Naut in order to see Grodus.) Now, examine go northwest from
 the entrance and you'll see four lockers.

 Open the 3rd from the right or left, it doesn't matter which, as it is the
 same locker either way, and you'll get an X-Naut suit. Grab it and head east
 and examine the left pink curtain you see and Peach will put on the X-Naut
 suit. Once you regain control, exit this room and continue going east and
 enter the door you see and you'll be in Grodus's room. Head east and talk to
 Grodus.

 Then, another cutscene will commence. This time between Peach and Grodus. Once
 it's over, you'll be back in the dressing room. Once you regain control, go to
 the left pink curtain again and Peach will take off the X-Naut suit and put on
 her dress, so when she's done, exit the curtain and head out of the dressing
 room and you'll automatically be in TEC's room.

 Another cutscene will commence. Peach will send yet another letter to Mario in
 this cutscene and once its over, TEC will send Peach back to her room and her
 event will be over. When you get the chance to save your game again, so save
 it and we're onto Bowser's Event.


 Bowser's Event
 --------------

 In this Bowser's event, Kammy Koopa and Bowser will be in the Great Tree. Once
 you gain control, head east and examine the bush beside the pink door and a
 cutscene will commence. Once its over, the event ends and you'll get another
 opportunity to save your game. Do so and we're back in the Glitzville Fighting
 Arena.


 Glitzville Fighting Arena
 -------------------------

 Back in the Glitzville Fighting Area, Jolene, the Rawk Hawk, and King K will
 talk. Once the cutscene is over, you'll be back in the outside part of
 Glitzville, so save your game and head talk to the Cheep and ride the Cheep
 Blimp back down to Rogueport.


 Rogueport
 ---------

 Back in Rogueport, there's a Star Piece you can get here, so read the Star
 Pieces section of this guide to see how to get it. Once you get it, save your
 game and exit this area. Then, go south and you'll get another e-mail from
 Peach. Read it and then go to the Item Shop in the west part of town and buy
 restock on some healing Items and any other Items you may need.

 Also be sure to get AT LEAST one Life Shroom. Then, go to the Item Shop in the
 Rogueport Square and buy some Honey Syrups and be sure to sell whatever you
 don't need. Whenever you're ready, head to the Rogueport Sewers.


 Rogueport Sewers
 ----------------

 Back in here, make your way to the Thousand Year Door. Once there, jump on the
 pedestal in the middle of the room and you'll get another Star Tech. You'll
 also get another Crystal Star location on your map. Once the cutscene is over,
 you'll arrive in Professor's Frankly's office.


 Rogueport
 ---------

 In Frankly's house, he'll give you information and tell you that you have to
 go to Twilight Town to get the next Crystal Star. Once the cutscene is over
 and you regain control, exit Frankly's place and you'll get another e-mail.
 Read it and then go to the Rogueport Square save your game. Now, go to the
 west side of town and you should see a grate in the middle of the west side.

 When you see the grate, turn paper thin and slip down through the spaces on
 the grate and you'll be in a new part of Rogueport Sewers.


 Rogueport Sewers
 ----------------

 In this unexplored area of the Rogueport Sewers, get on Yoshi and fly west to
 the platform. Then, get the Shine Sprite and head through the door into the
 next room. In this room, you'll see a pipe which is orange and a sign beside
 it. This pipe leads to Twilight Town, your next destination. Go down the pipe
 but it spits you back out.

 Now, exit this room and in the previous room, head east off the platform to
 the lower levels of this room. Once there, defeat the Spunia enemies. Then, go
 east from where you dropped off of the platform with the pipe and the door
 (the ledge where the door led to Twilight Town), to the Save Point and save
 your game. Then, go through the big pipe and you'll be back in Rogueport.


 Rogueport
 ---------

 Back here, visit Professor Frankly once more. This time Frankly will tell you
 to go see Darkly, a resident of Twilight Town who will get you into Twilight
 Town. Once you regain control, exit Frankly's place and lets go find Darkly.
 First of all, to find Darkly, head directly west from Frankly's house and when
 you see a brick wall (you may have noticed it earlier in the game as you pass
 by Frankly's everytime), go north and the screen will change and you'll be in
 a new area.

 In this area, head west past the blue bandit and head north and talk to the
 guy in the weird looking clothes and with the funny face. This is Darkly, as
 you probably already guessed. Once Darkly is finished talking, head back to
 the west side of town and turn paper thin and drop down the grate leading back
 to the area of Rogueport Sewers where the pipe leading to Twilight Town is
 located.


 Rogueport Sewers
 ----------------

 Back in Rogueport Sewers, get on Yoshi and fly left to the ledge again. Then,
 go through the door into the room with the pipe and then go down the pipe and
 you won't be rejected this time, and you'll be in Twilight Town.


 Twilight Town
 -------------

 Chapter 4: For Pigs The Bell Tolls, is actually an easy chapter, and it is
 quicker than Glitzville, so don't worry too much. Once you arrive at Twilight
 Town, Yoshi will say that this place gives him the creeps and ask is this
 Twilight Town, and then a resident will come and explain the reason why people
 are pigs (yes, the pigs were once people). Once he's done talking, the bell
 will ring and the resident who was talking to you will get turned into a pig.

 Then, the mayor of Twilight Town will come and talk to you and tell you to
 come to his house. Once you arrive in the mayor's house, a cutscene will
 commence. Once it's over and you regain control, exit this house and feel free
 to browse around town, but there's nothing to do yet. Anyway, once you're
 ready to do something besides look around town, save your game.

 Once you save your game, head east to the next area. In this area, go all the
 way east and talk to the gatekeeper. He will tell you that a monster lives
 behind the gate in the woods, and that if you want to proceed, you'll need the
 mayor's permission, so go to the mayor's house (it's the second house which is
 directly north from the pipe. It also has a tree beside the mayor's house, so
 this indicates that it is the mayor's house.

 Along your way to the mayor's house, the bell will ring again, and this time
 the mayor has fallen victim to the pig curse! Once you enter the mayor's
 house, you'll see him in his pig form, so exit the house after that. Now, go
 the second part of the town and enter the house to the right of the first one
 in the second screen of this town.

 Once inside there, head east and you'll see another pig, a girl who's not a
 pig. She'll say that her husband (that's the pig you see) has been turned into
 a pig. Once you regain control, exit this house and when you exit the house,
 the bell will ring. This time, the gatekeeper is the one who has become a pig.
 Now, head to the gate and open the gate as he won't stop you in his pig form
 and you'll be in Twilight Trail.


 Twilight Trail
 --------------

 In Twilight Trail, enter the shed you see and once inside, head west and
 you'll get a Black Key. Now, exit the shed and head east into the next area.
 In this area, head east and defeat the Hyper Goomba, the Hyper Paragoomba, and
 the Hyper Spikey Goomba. Once you defeat them, hit the yellow "?" block until
 it finishes giving you its Coins (its the block near the end of this area).

 Once you do that and clear out all the enemies, head east into the next area.
 In this next area, switch to Koops and then use his shell to get the Red Key
 which is directly east of the fallen tree. Once you get that, head west
 through all the areas of Twilight Trail and go back to Twilight Town.


 Twilight Town
 -------------

 Head to the Item Shop and unlock the door with the Black Key. Once inside the
 unlocked door, talk to the black chest and then  talk to it again and use the
 Black Key on it. Yep...it will come out and...curse you...as usual...This time
 you get a new power-up which is the ability to turn into a tube. Once you
 regain control after being cursed by the black chest, grab the Boo's Sheet if
 you want it.

 Also grab the Jammin' Jelly which recovers 50 FP! If you don't have enough
 room in your item pack, just toss something that you don't need away, as
 you'll DEFINITELY need the Jammin' Jelly! Once you have that, open the chest
 to get a Defend Plus Badge. If you have enough BP, equip it. Once you're done
 in this room, exit this place and you'll get another e-mail. Read it and go
 back to Twilight Trail.


 Twilight Trail
 --------------

 Back in Twilight Trail, go east into the next area. In this area, head east
 into the next area. In this area, head east to the fallen tree and hold R and
 rotate the Control Stick to become a tube. Once you become a tube, roll under
 the tree and you'll be in the area where Koops's shell retrieved the Red Key
 at. In this area, head to the northwestern part of the tree to get a Star
 Piece. Once you get that, head east and you'll see a huge tree.

 Switch to Flurrie and use her wind gust to blow the tree away. There's a Star
 Piece behind the pipe in the foreground so be sure to get it. Once you get it,
 go down the newly revealed pipe and  you'll be in the background. In the
 background, head west and you'll be in a new area. Be careful. In this part of
 the Twilight Trail you'll encounter Crazee Dayzees which aren't generally
 hard, but they can sometimes accompany rare Amazee Dayzee's which have lots of
 HP, and lots of Attack Power, making them HARD to defeat!

 The good thing is, the Amazee Dayzee's usually run away quickly. In this next
 area, switch back to Yoshi and head west and defeat the Crazee Dayzee. Then,
 head west and hit the brown brick block until it finishes feeding you its
 Coins. Now, go east and turn paper thin when you notice a gap in the grass
 (it's not that hard to notice, its just like the one in Boggly Woods to get to
 Flurrie's house).

 Once you enter the gap after turning paper thin, hit the yellow "?" block and
 an Earth Quake Item will pop out, so grab it and head west and defeat the next
 Crazee Dayzee you come across. Once you defeat Dayzee, continue heading west
 and beat the next Crazee Dayzee you see. Once you do that, hit the red "?"
 block and a Hammer Throw will pop out, so grab it and continue west and you'll
 see a huge tree.

 Switch to Flurrie and her use her wind gust to reveal an entrance leading to
 the background of this area. Once the area is revealed, head through it and
 you'll be in the background. Once you're in the background again, head east
 and you'll be in another new area. In this area, switch back to Yoshi if you
 haven't done so already.

 Once you get in this room and are ready to go, head east and you will see a
 light purple circle on the ground (it's kind of hard to notice, but it's
 visible), and a huge rock. What to do, what to do? Well, see the light purple
 circle on the ground? Switch to Flurrie and use her wind gust to reveal an "X"
 where the purple circle was before you blew it away. Now, butt stomp the newly
 revealed "X" symbol, and you'll drop down a hole and you'll be in the
 background again.

 Once there, head east and push the huge rock to the east by holding the
 Control Stick in an east direction. Once you push the rock to the east, head
 back west and drop down the hole into the foreground. Once you're in the
 foreground, head east and go down the newly revealed hole and head east and
 defeat the Hyper Cleft.

 Then, continue east and you'll be in the area with the Creepy Steeple in it.
 Once there, switch back to Yoshi if you haven't already. Once you're ready,
 heal at the Recovery Block to restore all of your HP/FP (gee, we haven't seen
 one of those in awhile, have we?). Then, save your game at the Save Point.
 Now, ignore the well you see and turn tube mode by holding R and rotating the
 Control Stick.

 Once you turn tube Mario, go through the gap in the bottom of the gate (the
 gap is directly east from the middle gate that you can't open, so it isn't
 that hard too find once you look). Once you enter the gap, press B to turn
 back to normal Mario. Then, go north and head through the door into the Creepy
 Steeple.


 Creepy Steeple
 --------------

 In the Creepy Steeple, head east and push the statue with the star on it and
 you'll drop down into the lower levels. Once you drop down to the lower
 levels, use Flurrie's wind gust just north of the yellow spring to reveal a
 secret passage. Once you reveal the secret passage, go through it and head
 east once you go through it and keep going east until you see a chest. Open it
 to get a Flower Saver Badge. Equip it if you want to, and whenever you're
 ready, head west and go south to exit the secret passage you just opened.

 Now, once you're out of the secret passage, go west through the door you
 haven't been through yet into the next area. In this area, head west and open
 the chest and two hundred Boos will come out. Then, once they all come out,
 one last Boo will come out and give you a question on how many Boos came out.

 Just answer two hundred Boos and once you get the correct answer (keep
 resetting your game if you don't get the correct answer, because you
 DEFINITELY need this Item you'll get if you guess the correct answer), the Boo
 will give you an Ultra Shroom and run away. This recovers 50 HP, so you'll
 DEFINITELY need it, so SAVE it and DON'T waste it! Anyway, once you get the
 Ultra Shroom, head east through the door into the previous room.

 Back in the previous room, switch to Yoshi, as you are about to enter the real
 part of the Creepy Steeple where you have to actually fight enemies, and Yoshi
 is absolutely essential for this chapter, as well as the whole game! Anyway,
 once you switch to Yoshi, jump on the yellow spring and you'll be in the main
 room of the Creepy Steeple which was the first room that you entered (where
 you pushed the statue with the star on it).

 Once you're in the main room, talk to the Boo and tell him either answer and
 he'll summon all of his Boo comrades and if you stay in this room long enough,
 they'll attach themselves to you and carry you to the entrance of the Creepy
 Steeple in the outside part of it where the gates are, so be sure to avoid
 that unless you wanna keep entering/reentering.

 Anyway, once the Boo summons all his Boo buddies, take note these guys can
 fuse into an Atomic Boo which has 40 HP, so be sure to check the Side Quests
 section of this guide to see how to make them fuse into one. Whenever you're
 ready, in the main room of the Creepy Steeple, go through the north door. Once
 you enter the north door, head east and clear the room of the enemies.

 Once you defeat the enemies, go through the gap in the fence in the middle of
 the room (it may be hard to notice like all the other gaps are if you don't
 pay very much attention, but its visible) and once you enter the gap through
 the fence, head east and hit the golden tree with your Hammer and a Gold Leaf
 will come out which recovers a good bit of FP.

 The good thing is, you can get unlimited of these, so I suggest stocking up on
 two, but I didn't, so just do whatever you want. Anyway, whenever you're
 ready, once you get the Gold Leaf, go west and go back through the gap in the
 fence and then go east up the stairs and hit the red "!" block with your
 Hammer twice.

 Each time you'll hear an earthquake sound. This indicates that the stairs in
 the next room are moving each time you hit the red "!" block, so hit it twice
 like I said and then the stairs will go to the right corner of the screen in
 the next room, which is where we want them. Now, once you hit the block two
 times, go south through the door into the next room where the stairs are. In
 this room, climb up the stairs and then enter the door to the next room.

 This room is the main room of the Creepy Steeple, except your just on a bridge
 above ground level. Anyway, once you arrive in this room, head west (make sure
 you do this fast, as you don't want the Boos to bring you back to the entrance
 of the Creepy Steeple, do you?) and once you see the bridge have a gap in it,
 meaning you have to jump, do just that and jump to the other side once you see
 the gap in the bridge.

 Once you get to the other platform, save your game and get off the high bridge
 and go back to ground level and go through the south door instead of the north
 door we just went through a few minutes ago and once you're in the south door,
 head east and clear the room of the two Swoopers. Then, once you do that, head
 all the way east like you did in the north room to get to the red "!" block,
 and lo and behold, there is also a red "!" block in here, so hit it with
 your Hammer twice.

 Or, if you didn't do like I said which was enter the north room first, then
 just hit the red "!" block until the stairs in the next room go to the left
 side instead of the right side where you went last time. Now, once the stairs
 are on the left side, climb them up and go through the door into the next
 room. This is also the main room of the steeple.

 Once you get here, quickly head all the way west and then once you see a white
 key, switch to Koops and use his shell with "X" incase you don't remember how,
 and you'll get the Steeple Key. Now, let the Boos carry you back outside the
 steeple. When you're outside, come back in and head to the north door again
 and once in that room again, head east and hit the red "!" block with your
 Hammer two times to get the stairs back to the right side instead of the left.

 Once you get the stairs to the right side of the room, enter the door to the
 south and you'll be back in the room with the stairs once again, so climb them
 up and enter the door again and in this room again, head west like you did
 before, and once again, when the bridge comes to a halt, or as I like to call
 it, "gap", then jump to the other  side. Do this quickly to avoid the Boos.

 Once you make it to the other side, save your game again and then quickly use
 the Steeple Key on the locked door and then enter the newly unlocked door. In
 this next room, use the Recovery Block to fully recover your HP/FP even if you
 don't think you need it, because there is a boss coming up just up these
 stairs that we're about to climb.

 Once you use the Recovery Block, go outside and save your game again and then
 go back in the room with the Recovery Block and then climb up the long
 stairway and once you climb all of it, you'll see a yellow spring, so jump on
 it when you see it and you'll be carried up to the top floor of the Creepy
 Steeple.

 Once you're at the top floor, a cutscene commences and then once it's over,
 you'll have to fight a ghost named Doopliss, so read the Bosses section of
 this guide, as usual, to see how to win this fight. Once you win, Doopliss,
 instead of you, will get the Crystal Star and you'll become the shadowlike
 Mario that Doopliss turned into in the middle of the fight.

 Take note you have absolutely NONE of your party members, so avoid battles as
 often as possible to avoid getting a Game Over. Once you regain control of
 Mario, this time in a shadowlike form, exit this room and then climb down the
 stairway and then once you reach the bottom of this room, use the Recovery
 Block to recover your HP/FP.

 Once you do that, exit the Creepy Steeple completely.


 Twilight Trail
 --------------

 Once you exit the steeple, another cutscene between the Shadow Sirens will
 commence and this time, they have a Superbombomb to destroy you. Not very
 clever, huh? Once the cutscene is over and you regain control, become tube
 mode. Then, go south through the gap in the gate that you went through to get
 to the Creepy Steeple entrance just before entering it.

 Once you go through the gap, save your game and then head back to Twilight
 Town and along the way you'll encounter Doopliss in the Mario's actual body.
 Why, Doopliss is so dirty, that he even steals Mario's name! He'll tell you to
 guess his name, but it is impossible to guess his name, despite you knowing
 his name.

 Once you engage in battle with Doopliss, run away from it, as that's your only
 option at this point and this is someting you have to do. Once you run away,
 you'll be back in Twilight Town.


 Twilight Town
 -------------

 Back in Twilight Town, head west and exit this part of the town. Then, in the
 first part of the town, you'll see Vivian crying asking herself what she'll
 do, and then you'll regain control. Once you regain control, save your game
 and then talk to Vivian. Take note there is a Star Piece in this area where
 Vivian is, so examine all the bushes until you find it.

 Once you get it, Vivian will join your party! Sweet! Ignore what Vivian said
 about talking to the birds for some information on Doopliss's name, as that is
 useless in Twilight Town. But not in Twilight Trail, so lets head to the
 Creepy Steeple area, but lets not enter it, lets just go to that area.


 Twilight Trail
 --------------

 Anyway, once you arrive in the outside area of Creepy Steeple, use the
 Recovery Block if needed, but be sure to save your game. Whenever you are
 ready, go down the well that I told you to ignore when you first got here.
 Once you're down there, get the Shine Sprite and defeat the Buzzy Beetle
 that's in the area. Then, head east into the next area.

 In this area, defeat all of the many enemies, or just keep running away until
 you can hit the red "?" block. Once you hit the red "?" block, a Tornado Jump
 Badge will pop out, so I suggest getting it. If not, that's fine, as it's not
 essential. Anyway, see that mirror shape thing or whatever in the eastern part
 of this room? Well, you are gonna have to make your way over there and push it
 a bit.

 Then, press X to hide in the shadows with Vivian. Doing this will cause the
 mirror-like thing to slide back down to its original spot before you pushed
 it. Once the block slides back to its original place, get out of the shadows
 and then head east through the door into the next area. In this area, get the
 Shine Sprite in the block and then save your game.

 Now, get in tube mode and go through the tunnel. Once you roll down the
 tunnel, you'll be in a new area and in this area, butt stomp the big wooden
 "X" square on the ground and then drop down the hole it reveals into the next
 area. In this area, head west and turn tube mode and roll through the small
 hole (it's not that easy to see, but just keep moving west after you turn tube
 mode and you'll be able to enter the hole acessible only by tube mode).

 Once you go through the tunnel after becoming tube mode, you'll be in another
 new area. In this new area, open the two chests to get a Power Plus Badge and
 a Mr. Softener Once you open those two chests, go to the left side of the room
 and then open the two boxes and you'll get another Steeple Key and the letter
 "P" which is needed to get Mario's name and body back.

 Once you get these four Items from the chests in this room, go in front of the
 parrot and hide in the shadows with Vivian by pressing "X". Once you do that,
 the parrot will talk and he'll say in the middle of his speech the name of the
 ghost which is Doopliss. The reason we couldn't guess his name before is
 because we didn't have the letter "P", but this time we do.

 Anyway, once you get the four Items from the four chests in this room and the
 parrot talks and tells you the name of Doopliss and you regain control, unlock
 the locked door you see with the newly found Steeple Key. You'll now be back
 in the Creepy Steeple.


 Creepy Steeple
 --------------

 Back in the Creepy Steeple, exit it completely.


 Twilight Trail
 --------------

 Back outside, save your game and then go back and see Doopliss. This time when
 Doopliss asks you to guess his name, guess spell it in this exact way:
 Doopliss. He'll be extremely shocked that you guessed his name, and then he'll
 lie to you (he lies because he told you he would give you your name and body
 back if you guessed his name, and he didn't. Instead, he ran.) and flee to the
 Creepy Steeple where you first fought him.

 Once he runs away and you regain control, save your game in Twilight Town and
 then go to the area with the gates and the Creepy Steeple. Once there, use the
 Recovery Block if you need to, but I don't suggest doing it till you're inside
 the actual steeple, because you really don't need to. Anyway, once you get to
 the Creepy Steeple part, save your game and enter the steeple itself.


 Creepy Steeple
 --------------

 Once you're back in the Creepy Steeple, head through the north door and avoid
 or fight the two Swoopers. Once you make it to the red "!" block, hit it once
 with your Hammer and then go south and enter the door into the next room. In
 this room again, climb up the stairs and enter the door the stairs lead you
 to. Then, in the room it takes you to, head west and jump to the other side
 when the bridge comes to a halt.

 Then, save your game and enter the door into the next room. In this next room,
 use the Recovery Block if you didn't outside the Creepy Steeple, and then
 whenever you're ready, climb up the stairs and when they finally come to an
 end, jump on the yellow spring and you'll be back in the top floor of the
 steeple in Doopliss's room.

 Once there, a cutscene will commence and once its done, get ready for round
 two against Doopliss! As always, check the Bosses section to see how to win
 this second fight against Doopliss. Once you win it, another cutscene will
 commence and your party members will realize that they had been with a fake
 Mario which was Doopliss. In this cutscene, Vivian will truly join your party
 for good and she'll give you the fourth Crystal Star.

 Then, this Chapter truly ends! Once you get the opportunity to save your game,
 save it and another cutscene with the Shadow Sirens will commence. Only this
 time, with no Vivian. Once the cutscene between Beldam and Marilyn is over,
 the next Peach's Event will occur.


 Peach's Event
 -------------

 In this Peach's Event, another cutscene between Grodus and the X-Nauts will
 commence. Once the cutscene is over, the scene switches to Peach in TEC's
 room. Once TEC gets through talking, he'll tell Peach that her and himself
 will have a quiz. Peach just questions him but he ignores her and asks the
 first question. Please refer to the Mini Games section of this guide to see
 the correct answer to these sections.

 If you get an answer wrong, you will have to start back from question one
 regardless if you're at question five. Once you get all the questions right,
 Peach will send yet another message to Mario, and, as usual, TEC will send it.
 Once that happens, after a few more words, Peach goes to her room and the
 cutscene ends. Now, onto Bowser's next event.


 Bowser's Event
 --------------

 In this Bowser's Event, you'll see Bowser and Kammy Koopa in Rogueport. They
 are planning on going to Glitzville, as there is supposedly something of
 importance there. Kammy Koopa will ask the fish to give Bowser and her herself
 a ticket for the Cheep Blimp. The fish will freak out and Kammy will fuss at
 him, but he's long gone.

 Then she'll realize she was talking to herself and she'll see Bowser in the
 Koopa Copter. She'll then have to get stuck riding the slow Cheep Blimp, while
 Bowser rides the fast Koopa Copter. The scene then switches to Bowser in his
 Koopa Copter and he runs out of gas and falls down into the water. You'll now
 get to play as Bowser again. This time, in an underwater world.

 Remember, if you get killed, you start in world 1-2 and so on. Once you
 complete the water level with Bowser, Bowser will arrive in the Rogueport
 Harbor and he'll say Kammy Koopa. Evidently, Kammy Koopa went to Glitzville
 and got balloons and a Rawk Hawk face. Once the cutscene is over, Bowser's
 Event ends and you get the chance to save your game again, so do it. Now,
 you'll arrive back in Twilight Town.


 Twilight Town
 -------------

 In Twilight Town, the mayor will ask you if you got your feelings hurt because
 of everyone believing that Doopliss was the real Mario instead of you, so
 answer either answer and then the mayor will say a few words, as will Vivian.
 Then, you'll regain control, so save your game and go by the Item Shop and
 sell off everything you don't need and make sure that you sell of all regular
 Mushrooms and all Honey Syrups.

 Once you do that, buy some Maple Syrups and a Life Shroom. Make sure you have
 enough room for all that, because you'll need these Items. Now, buy anything
 else you may need. Then, exit the Item Shop and save your game. Then, go down
 the pipe leading back to Rogueport Sewers.


 Rogueport Sewers
 ----------------

 In here, go south through the door into the area. In this area, you'll get
 another e-mail from Princess Peach. Once you read it and regain control, get
 off of this platform and then defeat the two Spunias. Then, save your game
 again and enter the huge pipe leading back to Rogueport.


 Rogueport
 ---------

 Back in Rogueport, head to the Rogueport Sewers through the pipe in the area
 where Frankly's house is.


 Rogueport Sewers
 ----------------

 In the first part of Rogueport Sewers (not the part where Twilight Town is,
 but the part where you first arrived in the beginning of the game) head to the
 room with the Thousand Year Door in it and once there, jump on the pedestal in
 the middle of the room and you'll get yet another Star Tech which is Art
 Attack. Another Crystal Star location has also been added to your magical map.

 Once the cutscene in the room with the Thousand Year Door ends, you'll be back
 in Professor Frankly's house in Rogueport.


 Rogueport
 ---------

 Back in Rogueport, Professor Frankly will talk as usual and tell you to go to
 an island called Keelhaul Key. Once you regain control, ignore what Professor
 Frankly said about going to the harbor, as you don't go there just yet.
 Instead, go to the Rogueport Square and go to the Inn. Once you are there,
 talk to Luigi if you want.

 Whenever you're ready, head all the way east in the bottom floor of the Inn
 and speak to the pirate guy who's name is Flavio. Flavio will ask you what do
 you think it is that he is lacking. Tell him any of the four answers, and then
 once his long talk gets over with, you'll regain control so head to the
 Rogueport Harbor. Once there again, go southeast to the place where you found
 Fransesca and Frankie for Don Pianta at before going to Chapter 3, and you'll
 see a huge ship with Flavio and lots of crew members on it.

 One who even looks like Lord Crump. Jump on the ship and talk to Flavio. Once
 he's done talking and you regain control, head back to the Rogueport Square
 and then head to the east part of town where Professor Frankly's office is.
 But instead, head east past the part where you killed the Gus at after beating
 Chapter 2.

 Once you pass that point, head southeast and get to the edge of the platform
 next to the bridge. Then, get on Yoshi and fly with him over to the other
 side. Once there, talk to the bandit if you want and then jump on the crates.
 Once you reach the top, jump on the roof of the building and once you get on
 it, go to the edge of the roof on the left side and get on Yoshi and fly with
 him to the next building roof.

 Once you're on the next building roof, head west and jump on the next building
 roof with Mario, as you don't have to fly with Yoshi anymore. Once you're on
 the last building roof with the chimney, turn tube mode and enter the hole in
 the chimney leading to Admiral Bobbery's place. Once you're in Admiral
 Bobbery's place, talk to him and he'll say that he does not know who Admiral
 Bobbery is, and to take your search elsewhere.

 Take note that there is a Shine Sprite here, so open the door to the left of
 the chimney and inside you'll find a Shine Sprite Block, so hit it to get
 another Shine Sprite. Now, its time to power up your characters, so head to
 Merlin's place, which is the building with a Shine Sprite on it.

 Once there, power up your characters and then exit Merlin's place, and head to
 the Rogueport Square and save your game. Then, go into the Inn and talk to the
 podley inside the Inn (this is the green dude with glasses running the Inn).
 He'll say that he knows Admiral Bobbery. Now, exit the Inn and go past where
 you defeated the Gus at and enter Admiral Bobbery's house that he jus
 unlocked a few minutes ago when you visited him through the chimney.

 He'll tell you that he isn't ever going on the sea again and that when he says
 no it means no. Once you regain control, head back to the Inn and speak with
 the podley again. He'll say that the reason Admiral Bobbery won't sail the
 seas is because he has a sad tale and that you may end up crying if you listen
 to it. Tell the podley yes and he'll tell you Admiral Bobbery's tale.

 Tell the podley that you still want to see Admiral Bobbery once he asks you
 that after he finishes telling you Admiral Bobbery's tale. He'll then say that
 since you are so determined he'll give you an Old Letter which Admiral
 Bobbery's wife, Scarlette left behind on her deathbed before she died of an
 illness. Now, go to Admiral Bobbery's house and show him the Old Letter.

 He'll be amazed at the letter, and he'll join you, but you don't get him as a
 party member just yet. Now, exit Admiral Bobbery's house and head to the
 harbor, but along the way you'll get another e-mail. Read it if you want and
 then when you are ready, head to the Rogueport Harbor and save your game once
 there. Then, get on the boat where Flavio and the crew is.

 Then, Flavio will tell you that he knew you could get Admiral Bobbery on the
 ship, and after he is finished talking, he'll ask you something, so answer the
 first answer. Now, the ship finally sets sail to Keelhaul Key and a cutscene
 commences between an X-Naut and Lord Crump (yep, you guessed it, Lord Crump is
 on the ship). Once the cutscene is over, Chapter 5: The Key To Pirates begins.


 The Sea
 -------

 A long cutscene commences and once the ship arrives at Keelhaul Key, Embers
 will come out and attack the ship and the crew members, but you don't have to
 fight them. These are actually vengeful spirits of the dead pirates that have
 sailed to Keelhaul Key. Anyway, once the cutscene ends, Flavio will write
 letters that you have to read through like he did when you first set sail to
 go to Keelhaul Key.

 Once you read the three letters Flavio writes, the scene switches to Keelhaul
 Key.


 Keelhaul Key
 ------------

 In Keelhaul Key, Pa-Patch will tell you that they have prepared a place for
 you to stay, but that it isn't much. Once you regain control, jump up onto the
 higher ledge. Then, jump up onto the highest ledge in this area. Then, head
 east into the next area. In this area, a toad will tell you to help them, as
 Flavio and Pa-Patch are in a huge fight. Once the two run off after fighting,
 the Embers will return and you'll have to fight three of them.

 Once you defeat them, Flavio will eventually ask you, after he is done running
 his mouth, if you will explore the island. Say yes or no, as either way,
 you'll end up exploring the island. Once you regain control of Mario, head
 east to where Flavio and Pa-Patch ran after they finished arguing and save
 your game.

 Don't bother entering the Item Shop unless you want a Sleepy Sheep or some
 attack Items, as they really have nothing of significant importance except a
 Super Shroom, so be sure to get some if you need them, which you shouldn't
 because you just got some at Twilight Town (or so I hope you did). There's
 also an Inn here, so take note of that. Whenever you're ready, head east from
 the Save Point into the next area.

 In this area, defeat the Green Fuzzy jumping around. Then, head east and hit
 the red "?" block and a Head Rattle Badge will pop out. Equip it if you want.
 Then, go south and hit the yellow block with your Hammer (it could be hard to
 see, as its kind of hidden in the grass between bushes but it shouldn't be
 that hard to spot) and a Courage Shell will pop out.

 Grab if you want to and then continue east and defeat the next Green Fuzzy
 that you come across. Then, examine the bush just south of where you first saw
 this last Green Fuzzy you just killed and a Coin will pop out, so get it.
 Then, continue east into the next area. In this area, head east and defeat the
 Putrid Piranha that is around the area. Once you defeat the Putrid Piranha,
 continue east and defeat the next Putrid Piranha.

 Then, continue east and jump to the platform that has a cave that looks like a
 tunnel on it. Once there, head northwest through the tunnel. Then, once you
 get out of the tunnel, you'll see another platform that's higher than the one
 you're currently on. When you see that platform, jump on it and then run and
 jump to the next one and take note that you don't have to have Yoshi to do
 this, as he'll fail if you try to fly to the next platform.

 Anyway, once you get up on the next platform, jump  to the next platform that
 has a Flower Fuzzy on it. Defeat it and then go to the Inn and heal if you
 need to, as it was a hard fight for me. Anyway, once you beat the Flower
 Fuzzy, there's nothing you can do up on the ledge that you're on, so drop back
 down to the lower levels of this area.

 Take note that in the lower levels of this area there is a Star Piece, so
 check the Star Pieces section of this guide to see how to get it. Once you get
 it, jump on the yellow block that is in between two platforms. Then, you'll
 reveal a brown brick block, so hit it until it finishes feeding you Coins.
 Now, make your way back up to the platform that the Flower Fuzzy was on before
 you defeated it.

 Once there, get on Yoshi and fly to the yellow block (this was the brown brick
 block until you depleted it of its Coins) and once you're on top of the yellow
 block (this could take a few tries), fly with Yoshi to the other side (this
 could also take a few tries). Once you are on the other side, jump up on the
 platform you see. Then, jump onto the higher platform.

 Then, once you do that, get the Shine Sprite left of you if you want to but
 you don't have to because it isn't like one Shine Sprite is gonna make much of
 a difference. Plus, it's hard to get, so you might not wanna get it. Once you
 get the Shine, jump back to the platform and then once you do that, jump on
 the next platform and hit the yellow "?" block you see to get a Thunder Rage.
 Now, head east and drop down the two platforms.

 Then, continue east into the next area. In this next area, a cutscene will
 commence and you will see Lord Crump, Admiral Bobbery, and a toad. Not to
 mention that they are surrounded by dead pirate spirits which are Embers.
 These are also the three crew members that were lost during the shipwreck when
 you first arrived at Keelhaul Key.

 During the cutscene, Admiral Bobbery will tell Mario and the other crew
 members to leave the area immediately, and to let him do what he must do. Once
 Mario and crew leaves the area, more talking will commence and once it's over
 and you regain control, jump on the platform just west of you and then once
 you do that, jump to the next platform. Now, head back to Flavio. Once there,
 rest at the Inn if you need to.

 Save your game regardless, and whenever you're ready, head to where you see
 Lord Crump and the toad at. Once there, talk to Flavio and he'll talk for a
 minute. Once he's done and you regain control, head back to where Admiral
 Bobbery told you to leave at. Once there, head east across the bridge where
 Bobbery and the Embers were, into the next area. In this area, you'll see two
 Embers circling a tree.

 Once you regain control, defeat one of them and then after you win, they'll
 both be defeated. Once you regain control, hit the tree they were surrounding
 with your Hammer. Admiral Bobbery will pop out. He'll ask for Chuckola Cola
 which is his last request before he dies. (Wow, this guy exaggerates, huh?)
 Once he's done talking and you regain control, head back to the area where
 Flavio and crew are and rest at the Inn if needed.

 But make sure that regardless if you go to the Inn or not, to save your game.
 Once you save your game, talk to Flavio and he'll talk for a minute, and he'll
 say that he needs you to find a "suitable replacement" for the Chuckola Cola,
 as that Cola is what he needs to survive. Once you regain control, head to the
 area with the bridge where Admiral Bobbery and crew were fighting the Embers
 (the place where Bobbery told you to leave and to let him do what he must do).

 Once there, from the entrance of that area, head directly south from the
 entrance and you'll drop down on to a lower ledge. Once you're on the lower
 ledge, climb down the other low ledges you see (this is basically a staircase,
 but I won't call it that) and once you reach the last low ledge, drop off of
 it to the lowest patch of land you see. Once there, get on Yoshi and fly to
 the platform in the water.

 Now, fly to the next platform in the water using Yoshi. Once you get to the
 next platform, you'll see a pipe, so go down it and you'll be in the
 background. Hit the tree with your Hammer to get a Coconut. You'll need this
 for the next part of this level. Once you get the Coconut from the tree, head
 back down the pipe and get on Yoshi and ride back to the small patch of land
 that you were on right before you flew onto the platforms in the water.

 Then, make your way back to Flavio and talk to him. Flavio will ask you what
 will you give in exchange for the Chuckola Cola.Once you get asked what you
 will give him, give him the Coconut you just got from the tree a moment ago.
 Flavio will give you the Chuckola Cola. Now, head back to the room with the
 bridge and once there, head east into the area where Bobbery is.

 Once there, head east and give Bobbery the Chuckola Cola. Once you  give the
 Cola to Bobbery, he'll talk for a bit and say farewell and think in his own
 self that he is dead. Once he's done talking and you regain control, hit
 Bobbery with  your Hammer and he will come to his senses in a second. He'll
 join your party for good!

 Once you regain control after Bobbery joins your party, head back to Flavio
 and talk to him. Once you do, another cutscene will commence and Bobbery asks
 the crew if Flavio should be selected to find the treasure for himself which
 means joining Mario. As you probably guessed, the hands point to Flavio.
 Flavio will now join your party to find the treasure he wants so badly.

 Once you get Flavio and regain control, save your game and rest at the Inn if
 you need to. Whenever you're ready, head back to the area where you Bobbery
 joined your party at. Once there, go to the tree that you knocked Admiral
 Bobbery out of. Once you're at the tree, head east past the tree itself and
 then use the Recovery Block you see if you need some HP/FP.

 Then, continue east and head into the water (you can go in this water, as it
 doesn't have any sea creatures biting you when you step in). Once there, head
 east and a cutscene will commence. Once the cutscene is over and you regain
 control, switch to Bobbery, as you might have kept Yoshi in because you had to
 fly with him to get to this area.

 Anyway, with Bobbery in your party (NOT Yoshi), head back into the water and
 head as east as you can, (head directly east from the middle of the water)
 ignoring the two skull faces that you see. Once you see skull with an eyepatch
 and a red jewel, examine it and then Bobbery will say a few words and you'll
 regain control. Get out of the water and talk to Flavio.

 Once he's done singing, he'll say a few more words and you'll get the
 opportunity to ask him to lend you something. Ask him to lend you the Skull
 Gem. Once you get the Skull Gem and regain control, head back into the water
 and examine the skull with the eyepatch and the red jewel. Once you examine
 it, place the Skull Gem in it and you'll have to do a puzzle.

 To solve it, jump on the small skull that has the red eyes and butt stomp it
 three times. Then, go over to the big skull that has the blue eyes and hit it
 with your Hammer 4 times. This will reveal a small hole directly above the
 skull with the eyepatch and the red jewel. But the entrance is too small to
 get into where the treasure is, so we're gonna have to use Bobbery. But how?

 Okay, get very close (not as close as you can, but basically go one inch left
 of the bridge above the skull with the eyepatch and the red jewel) to the
 bridge above the skull with the eyepatch and the red jewel. Then, throw
 Bobbery to the bridge by pressing "X" and then releasing it. If done
 correctly, Bobbery will blow up a passage leading to the Pirate's Grotto where
 the treasure lies. Keep trying if you fail in throwing Bobbery onto the
 bridge.

 Once you reveal the passage, Flavio will get his Skull Gem back and then head
 back to the crew to tell them that he's alright. Once you regain control,
 enter the passage leading to the Pirate's Grotto.


 Pirate's Grotto
 ---------------

 Once you arrive in the Pirate's Grotto, you'll see another Month/Day note that
 Flavio has wrote. Once you read it, you'll regain control of Mario. Head east
 and jump on the platform to the Save Point and save your game. Then, jump on
 the next two platforms and once you're on the highest ledge, enter the cave
 you see to get into the next area. In this area, you'll immediately hear a
 voice. Head down the steps and you'll drop off to a yellow spring which takes
 you back up.

 No need to use it now, though, as we've got some treasure to find. Anyway,
 once you drop down to the lower levels where the yellow spring is, head west
 and drop off the platform and you'll be in an even lower level of this room.
 Once there, climb down the stairs and then enter the cave into the next area.
 In this area, take out the Lava Bubble floating around the area. Then, head
 east and jump on the boat that is in the water.

 Then, jump to the next platform once you are on the boat. Once you're on the
 next platform, defeat the next Lava Bubble that you see. Then, head south on
 this platform that you just beat the Lava Bubble on and jump to the platform
 with the Star Piece. Once you get the Star Piece, jump back to the platform
 where you just defeated the Lava Bubble at and once there, jump to the next
 platform.

 Then, walk to the next platform and you'll see spikes rise up and then go back
 down in the ground. Rise up, go back in ground. What to do? What to do? Switch
 to Vivian and then wait until the spikes go back in the ground. Take a little
 time to study the spikes' pattern. Once you figure out their pattern, wait
 till they go back in the ground like I said, and then once they do that,
 quickly run to the spike holes and then quickly hide in the shadows with
 Vivian.

 Once the spikes come back up, wait till they come back down in the ground and
 then get of the shadows and then quickly run to the east a bit more and then
 hide back in the shadows. Keep doing this and heading east when you come out
 of hiding until you get across to the other side. This could take a few tries,
 but you'll get it. Once you're on the other side, head east into the next
 area.

 In this area, you'll see Bullet Bills flying almost constantly around the
 screen (its kinda like a traffic jam, huh?). To avoid them, hide in the
 shadows with Vivian and then come back out when they pass you. Keep doing this
 and head east a bit. Then hide back in the shadows, and when they pass you,
 come out of hiding, then head east. Keep doing this until you see two Bill
 Blasters. Don't bother defeating them, as you'll probably get a Game Over if
 you do.

 Instead, touch one of them to engage battle with one of them. Once you engage
 in battle with one of them, run away and then the minute you get back to the
 level and not the battle screen, run east past the Bill Blasters and enter the
 next area. In this next area, switch to Yoshi and head east and jump on the
 circle-shaped platform in the middle of the room (it looks like the pedestal
 in the room with the Thousand Year Door).

 Once you're on that, get on Yoshi and then get to the very edge and fly to the
 other side. Once you're on the other side, defeat the massive Bulky Bob-omb.
 Then, head east and enter the cave into the next area. In this area, defeat
 the Ember that comes rushing at you. Then, head east and you'll see a locked
 door. Ignore it, as you can't do anything with it right now.

 Instead, jump on the ledges you see and once you get to the ledge with the
 Save Point, save your game. Now, head west and jump across the three
 platforms. Then, jump on the next four platforms and read the Shine Sprites
 section of this guide to see how to get this Shine Sprite that you see. Once
 you get it, wait until the Parabuzzy comes to you.

 When it does, defeat it and then go directly north from where you first
 arrived on this platform at. Once you go north, jump to the platform to the
 west. You don't have to have Yoshi for this part. Just Mario. Once you jump to
 the other side, you will see a gray stone wall blocking the way that you have
 to go. The only way to get it out of the way is to use Bobbery, so head to the
 area where you first arrived on this platform at after you jumped to this
 platform with Mario.

 Once there, head one or two steps west (and when I say one or two steps, I
 MEAN one or two steps!) and then throw Bobbery and he'll explode the blue "!"
 block. Once that happens, the gray stone wall will be out of your way, thus
 allowing you further access into the dungeon. You'll now hear the voice that
 you heard in the beginning of the Grotto again. Once you regain control, head
 west into the newly revealed area.

 In this area, defeat the Bulky Bob-omb or avoid it. Avoid it if you have low
 HP. Wether you beat the Bulky Bob-omb or not, jump across the ledges that look
 like stairs which are just west from the entrance. Once you reach the top,
 you'll see a stone spraying out water, thus making a waterfall. Once you see
 that, jump to the other side. Once you jump to the other side, climb down the
 platforms and then head west and enter the next area.

 In this area, follow the path and when you are in reach of a
 moving platform in the water beside a red "!" block. Jump on the moving
 platform and wait until it comes as close as it can before it stops to
 the red "!" block. When it does that, turn Mario left and then switch
 to Koops and toss his shell, but make sure you leave Koops in the air
 by holding "X". Now, keep Koops in the air and then jump off of the
 moving platform that you're on when you can actually jump onto the
 floor again. Anyway, once you jump from the moving platform (make sure
 Koops is still in the air getting ready to be tossed, if not, get back
 on the moving platform and toss him again like I said above.), you must
 and are on the floor again, get on the platform in the middle of the
 wall in the area that you're in (this platform is not in the water area
 of this room, but on the floor part of this room; the area that you came
 to when you first arrived in this room.), release Koops and he'll hit
 the red "!" block (if you placed him correctly, that is.), thus causing
 the platform that you're standing on to raise up and he'll also cause
 another platform to move down almost to ground level.

 Once that happens, get on the platform that is almost on ground level and
 wait for it to elevate. Once it does, jump to the barrels and hit the Shine
 Sprite Block to get another Shine Sprite. Once you do that, get back on the
 black platform and not the platform that almost touched ground level (in
 order to this, you'll have to make Koops hit the red "!" switch like you did
 a minute ago). Once you're on the black platform, wait until it elevates
 until it can't elevate anymore. Once it does, jump to the platform with the
 key on it and grab the key to get the Grotto Key. Once you get that, exit
 this room.

 In this room again, jump across the platforms and once you reach the top
 where the waterfall is, jump across to the other side. Then, walk down
 the next set of platforms and then once you're back on the lower ground
 level, head east into the previously next area. In this area again, jump
 across to the other side. Then, jump back down the platforms and save
 your game on the platform with the Save Point along the way. Once you
 jump across all the platforms and are back on low ground level again,
 use the Grotto Key on the locked door to the east (on the one that I
 told you to ignore earlier). Once you unlock the door, enter the door.
 In this area, avoid the three Parabuzzies and just head south into the
 next area. In this area, go east and go to the edge of the platform and
 launch Koops to get the Shine Sprite. Once you get that, head to where
 the spikes are (you probably saw them when you first arrived in this
 area). Take note you don't have to use Vivian here like you did eariler,
 as its much harder than the normal way. The normal way is turning tube
 mode, so turn into tube mode and wait until the spikes go back in the
 wall. Once they do, quickly roll to the west while the spikes are calm
 (only roll very slightly, as the spikes have a much better chance to
 come out on you if you don't). Once the spikes come back out, wait until
 they go back in and then the second they do, roll slightly some more.
 Then, wait till the spikes come back out and then go back in. Then, roll
 to the left some more. Keep doing this until you reach the other side
 and are spike free. Once you reach the other side, turn back to normal
 by pressing "B". Then, head into the next area.

 In this area, hit the ground directly below the Shine Sprite Block with
 your Hammer to reveal a brown brick block. Once you reveal that, jump on
 the brown brick block and jump one more time to get the Shine Sprite.
 Once you get this Shine Sprite, head west and jump on the barrel that is
 in the water. Then, wait until the barrel calms down (what I mean by calm
 down is when it completely stops moving and raises back up to the position
 it was on) and once it does, jump to the next barrel. Then, wait until that
 one calms down and then jump on the next barrel. Wait till that one calms
 down, then jump to the boat. Once you're on the boat, wait until it calms
 down and then when it does, jump to the other side. Now, get on the bridge
 and jump to the other side of the broken bridge (you don't have to have
 Yoshi to do this). Once you jump to the other side of the bridge, continue
 heading west and then jump on the platform that you see. Then, use Bobbery
 to blow up the wooden wall blocking the door. Once you blow it up, enter
 the newly revealed area.

 In this area, defeat the first pair of Bullet Bills that rush at you.
 Then, immediately turn tube mode and then roll off the platform. Then,
 keep rolling west (this will enable you to avoid all the Bullet Bills)
 until you come across two Bill Blasters. Once you come across them,
 defeat them and then jump on the two platforms. Once you do that, beat
 the next pair of Bullet Bills that come at you. Then, turn tube mode
 and roll west and then once you see more Bill Blasters, defeat them
 or engage battle with them and then do that run away trick I told you
 to do earlier in the Grotto. For more information on this "trick",
 check the Codes n' Secrets section of this guide to see how to do it.
 Anyway, regardless if you fight or avoid the last two Bill Blasters,
 head west into the next area. In this next area, defeat the Bulky
 Bob-omb that you see. Then, head west and get to the edge of the
 platform. Then, jump west to the wooden tile with the boat symbol on
 it. As usual, Yoshi is not required for this. Once you get to the
 other side (on the boat panel), head west and cross the wooden bridge
 and then cross the next one. Once you cross the two wooden bridges,
 enter the crack in the ship. Once you're in the area that the ship
 crack took you to, you'll see another black chest. Yep, you guessed
 it, we're going to have to find another Black Key.

 Anyway, once you get in the area with the black chest, talk to it and
 then an Ember will appear. Defeat it and it'll drop a Black Key. Now,
 check behind  the black chest for a P-Down, D-Up Badge, which is utterly
 useless.  Check the Badges section to see what it does. Once you get this
 Badge, talk to the chest and use the Black Key on it and you'll be cursed
 again. This time, you'll get the ability to turn into boat mode, which is
 the last ability from black chests that you get. That was also the last
 black chest you'll encounter in this game. Anyway, once the chest is done
 talking and you regain control, exit this room and then back in the
 previous area, head across the two wooden bridges and then get on the boat
 panel and turn boat mode by pressing "Y". Once you turn boat mode, sail
 east and hug the next boat panel when it is in reach. Then, press "Y" to
 turn back to normal and you'll automatically be carried to the boat panel
 that you just hugged. Once you're on the boat panel that you hugged, jump
 on the platform. Then, jump onto the higher platform and then once you do
 that, head east into the next area.

 Back in this area, head east the two steps and then continue east and
 jump across the two platforms. Then, continue east into the next area.
 In this next area, jump on the ship and then when it calms down, jump
 to the barrel. Then, wait till that one calms down and jump to the
 next barrel. Then, wait till this last barrel calms down and jump to
 the platform. Once you're on the platform, head east into the next
 area. Back in the spike room, eh? Like you did before, turn tube mode
 and wait until the spikes go back in the wall. When they do, roll east
 to where the spikes are, but not too far. Then, wait till the spikes
 come back out and go back in. When they go back in a second time, roll
 slightly to the east again and then wait till the spikes come out and
 go back in and then roll slightly to the east when they go back in
 again. Keep repeating this until you make it to the other side, away
 from the spikes. Once you're completely away from the spikes, head
 east through the door into the next area. In this area, like you did
 before, ignore the Parabuzzies and head through the door to the west.
 Then, in the area it takes you to, jump on the platforms and save your
 game. Then, jump across all the platforms and once you reach the top,
 head north and jump across to the other side. Then, head west into the
 next area. In this area again, head west and get on the boat panel.
 Then, turn into boat mode and sail south down the waterfall. Then,
 sail west and southwest, ignoring the bridge you see. Once you see an
 entrance to another area (you'll only see the entrance by sailing
 west and southwest like I said. You have to sail west and southwest,
 as you HAVE to go to this entrance to progress further into the
 level.), sail all the way west and enter the entrance that you'll
 eventually see.

 Then, in this next area, head west and hug the boat panel that you
 see. Then, turn back to normal Mario. Once you turn back to normal,
 jump to the boat and grab the silver thing. This is a Gate Handle,
 which you'll need to progress further into the dungeon. Once you get
 the Gate Handle, get on the tip top of the boat and jump to the small
 platform that is in water (this could take a few tries). Once there,
 jump to the next platform. Then, follow the path and when you see the
 spikes that you encountered earlier, switch to Vivian and do what you
 did the first time you encountered these spikes. No, you can't use tube
 mode, as it won't work. Once you get to the other side, completely away
 from the spikes, head east into the next area. In this area, head east
 across the bridge and avoid or fight the Bullet Bills, depending on how
 much HP you currently have. If you have low HP, such as 10 or less, don't
 fight them, as if they get the First Strike, you are going to get hurt
 fast. Anyway, you know how to get past this area. If you forgot, look
 above in the walkthrough part of Pirate's Grotto. Once you get past the
 Bill Blasters, head east into the next area.

 In this area, head across the bridge and then when you reach the end of it,
 jump to the other side. Once you jump to the other side, jump on the middle
 platform and then switch to Yoshi and use him to fly to the to the other
 side (make sure you get to the very edge to do this). Once you're at the
 other side, examine the black barrel-like thing (it may be hard to notice)
 and then place the Gate Handle in there. This will cause the floodgate to
 open and get out of your way, thus allowing you further access into the
 level. The voice will then speak again. Once you regain control, head east
 into the next area. In this area, save your game at the Save Point. Then,
 finish jumping across the platforms until you reach the top. When you reach
 the top again, head north and then jump to the other side. Once you jump to
 the other side, head west into the next area. In this area, head west and
 get on the boat panel and turn boat mode. Then, sail down the waterfall.
 Once you sail down the waterfall, sail east and south and go down the area
 that the floodgate was blocking before you used the Gate Handle. In this
 next area, sail southeast and enter the entrance that you see (this one is
 southeast of the three barrels that you came across earlier) into the next
 area. In this area, you'll see very rough waves coming up out of the water
 (reminds me of a bad storm or a Hurricane in the ocean). To avoid them, if
 one moves northwardly, you go southwardly to avoid it. It's hard to explain
 in words, but you'll get it eventually. Sail east and avoid the waves. If
 you get hit by a wave, you'll have to start from the beginning of this area
 which is quite annoying, but you'll eventually get it.

 Once you avoid the waves and see another entrance leading to another new area,
 enter it. In this next area, a short cutscene will commence with tons of
 Toads. These guys are the crew members who were with you on the ship when you
 first arrived at Keelhaul Key before the ship sank. Once the cutscene is over
 and you regain control, sail all the way east, ignoring everything you see
 till you come across the Toads. Once you come across the Toads, sail east past
 them and then you'll see another boat panel. Hug the panel, then turn back to
 normal Mario and go down the pipe after you regain control and you'll be in the
 background of this area. Once you're in the background, jump on the boat and
 then get to the tip of the ship and then jump to the next platform. Once you're
 on the platform, head west and jump across all the plaforms, as you have to
 jump, as these platforms have a small gap at the end of each one. Once you
 cross all the platforms, you'll see another pipe. Don't ignore this one.
 Instead, jump up all the platforms and when you get to the top, go down the
 pipe. Your now back in the foreground.

 Now, jump across the platforms and get on the airplane tile that you see.
 Get to the very edge of it, and turn paper airplane and fly to the second
 pipe platform that is in the water in the middle of the room. Once there,
 go down it and hit the blue "!" switch. Then, drop off the ledge and go
 west back to the pipe that leads to the foreground where the airplane
 panel is. Once there, jump across the two platforms and then get to the
 very edge of the airplane panel and then fly over to the first pipe
 platform instead of the second. Once there, go down the pipe and then
 hit the next blue "!" switch and then you'll make more barrels rise out
 of the water, thus allowing the Toads to escape. Once you regain control,
 go back to the very edge of the airplane panel and then fly to where the
 Toads were before you rescued them. Once you're at where the Toads were,
 jump across the barrels. Then, jump to the platform when you're on the
 last barrel. Once you're on the platform, the Toads will say a few words
 and then you'll see Frankie and Fransesca again. Once you regain control,
 head east into the next area. In this area, get on the bridge and head
 east a bit and then once you do, Lord Crump will enter the room. Once
 he's done talking and you regain control, head east more and save your
 game at the Save Point. Then, head west a bit more and then jump on the
 ship. Once you're on the ship, use the Recovery Block to restore your
 HP/FP. Then, head east and enter the door on the ship. Once you enter
 the door, you'll hear the voice again. Once you regain control, head
 east through the door into the next area.

 In this area, the voice will speak again and you'll see tons of gold and
 jewels and booty on the ground. Once the cutscene is over, you'll engage
 battle with Cortez, so read the Bosses section to see how to win. Once you
 win, Cortez will eventually give you the Crystal Star after Mario convinces
 him that he doesn't want the gold and the jewels and the rest of the booty,
 just the Crystal Star itself. Once you regain control, exit this room and
 back in the previous room, jump to the platform in the water. Then, jump on
 the next platform in the water. Then, jump to the last platform in the water
 and get on Yoshi and fly back to the other side. Once there, save your game
 again and use the Recovery Block if needed. Then, head to where Frankie and
 Fransesca and the Toads are. Then, another cutscene will commence. Once its
 over and you regain control, get on the platform next to the platform with
 the crack in the wall (it might be hard to get to, as its not really even
 visible because of all the Toads). Once there, throw Bobbery and press "X"
 when he is in reach of the crack, and he'll explode it, thus revealing a
 way out of the Grotto. Frankie, Fransesca, and the Toads all leave the
 Grotto. Once you regain control, exit the Grotto through the hole in the
 wall that you just revealed.


 Keelhaul Key
 ------------

 Once outside, head west and you'll see a blue thing rise out of the
 ground. This is a Whacka. Hit it with your Hammer to get a Whacka Bump.
 Once you get that, go back in the Grotto through the cave you just
 exited it through. Then, come back out and hit the Whacka again to
 get another Whacka Bump. Get at least these two, or you can get more
 if you want, but you can only get 8, but don't get that much. SAVE them
 for the latter parts of the game. The max Whacka Bumps I recommend
 getting right now is two or three. Higher than three might make the game
 a bit harder, as you'll need these for the latter parts of the game as
 they restore 25 HP and 25 FP! Anyway, once you get two or three Whacka
 Bumps (when I said you can get more of them above, I meant three), head
 all the way east and then south and you'll see Frankie, Fransesca, and
 the Toads again. I wouldn't bother talking to these guys, as they say
 nothing of importance. Anyway, once you're at Frankie, Fransesca and
 the Toads, head south some more and Flavio and Pa-Patch will show up.
 Once they are done talking, you'll hear the sea rumble and Lord Crump
 will come out of the water in a ship and reveal his true identity. Once
 you regain control, head north to the big huge hole in the wall back
 into the Pirate's Grotto to see Cortez.


 Pirate's Grotto
 ---------------

 Once you come back here, make your way back to Cortez and once you're
 at Cortez, you don't have to fight him again. Instead, Flavio hands him
 the Skull Gem which is needed to sail Cortez' ship, the Black Skull.
 Once you regain control, exit Cortez' room then exit the next room.
 Once you do that, you'll see Frankie, Fransesca, and all the Toads and
 they will come with you to escape Crump's wrath. Cortez will then sail
 the ship for the first time in a millenium and then he'll break a HUGE
 hole in the wall, and Crump will be surprised that you have a ship as
 well. Another cutscene now commences, and during the cutscene, Embers
 that are accompanying Cortez will attack the X-Naut army on Crump's
 ship. Once you engage battle with Lord Crump, check the Bosses section
 to see how to win. Once you win, more talking will commence. Once its
 over and you get the opportunity to save your game, save it and we're
 onto Peach's next event.


 Peach's Event
 -------------

 In this event, Grodus is mad at Lord Crump for failing again and tells
 him that this is his "last chance". Once Crump gets out of the picture,
 an X-Naut will come in and Grodus will command him to get the Shadow
 Sirens to defeat Mario, and he'll tell the X-Naut to tell the Sirens
 not to fail this time. Grodus will then say a few more words and the
 scene will switch to Peach in TEC's room. Once the scene switches, TEC
 will tell Peach to sneak into Grodus's room and grab a data disk. Once
 you gain control of Peach, exit TEC's room and then head west and go
 down the elevator. Then, once you get to the lower levels, head west
 and enter the door with the green light above the door. Once in there,
 you'll have to make a certain "potion" to enable you to enter Grodus's
 room. You have to do this in a certain order. The order is this: red
 on the far left, blue right next to the red, orange right next to the
 blue, and green right next to the orange. TEC will tell you what to
 do from here. Once you successfully turn invisible, exit this room and
 head to Grodus's room. Once there, go behind where Grodus always is
 and then go through the door and in the area that the door takes you
 to, examine the bookshelf and you'll get the Data Disk. Now, go to
 the computer screen and place the Data Disk in it. Once you regain
 control after putting the Data Disk in the computer screen, put the
 Data Disk back on the bookshelf. Then, exit this room and go back to
 the potion room where you turned invisible. Once there, take the green
 potion off and drink it and you'll turn back to normal Peach. Once you
 turn back to normal, exit this room and you'll be back in TEC's room.
 Once there, another cutscene will commence. Peach will send another
 message to TEC and he'll send it to Mario. Then, Peach will go back to
 her room and the event ends. Once you get the opportunity to save your
 game, save it and you'll get onto Bowser's Event.


 Bowser's Event
 --------------

 In this Bowser's Event, you'll see Lord Crump in Twilight Town. Bowser will
 walk in with Kammy Koopa, as usual. Once Bowser and Kammy get done talking,
 talk to Lord Crump. A cutscene will commence and Lord Crump will find the
 Superbobomb that Beldam had apparently lost. Bowser and Crump will start
 talking and then Crump will summon tons of X-Naut soldiers to defeat
 Bowser. But Bowser has a trick of his own up his sleeve, as he calls tons
 of Magikoopas and Koopatrols to defeat Crump. Crump will throw the Super
 bobomb at Bowser but it doesn't even go off, as Bowser states. Bowser
 then uses his fire breath on it and it causes it to go off, thus defeating
 Lord Crump and his goons. Once that happens, the event ends and you get
 another opportunity to save your game, so do so.


 Keelhaul Key
 ------------

 Back in Keelhaul Key, a cutscene will commence. Frankie and Fransesca have
 decided to stay on the island, as its peaceful without any ghosts to worry
 about. Once the cutscene is over, Flavio, Cortez, and crew will set sail
 to Rogueport. You'll finally get to go to Rogueport as well. Good, enough
 of this island, AND the Grotto. Haven't you had enough spelunking? Because
 I sure have!


 Rogueport
 ---------

 Once you arrive back at Rogueport, the Toads will run off from Flavio and
 more talking will commence. Once its over and you regain control, take a
 few steps west towards the Save Point, and you'll recieve another e-mail
 from Princess Peach. Read it and save your game at the nearby Save Point.
 Then, head up the stairs out of the Rogueport Harbor. Now, since Chapter 6
 doesn't offer you another party member, and as Chapter 7 doesn't as well,
 nor Chapter 8, let's go recruit a party member which is Ms. Mowz. This is
 optional, but I suggest doing it. I won't include this in the Side Quests
 section, as there's really no point. First off, head to the east side of
 town where Frankly's place is and along the way, get prepared for another
 e-mail. Read it if you want, but regardless, head to the east side of
 town where Frankly and Bobbery's place is. Once there, head east past
 where you defeated the Gus after Chapter 2 at. Once you do that, don't
 enter Bobbery or Frankly's house. Instead, enter the house directly east
 of Bobbery's house. This is the Trouble Center. I'll list the Trouble
 Center in the Side Quests section of this guide. The Trouble Center is
 a place where you solve people's troubles and you get rewarded with an
 Item for it. You don't always get an important thing, though. Anyway,
 once you enter the Trouble Center, examine the board with the letters
 on it. Once you do that, you'll be talked to by something or someone, I
 don't know who. He'll offer to explain the operation of the Trouble
 Center to you.

 Tell him yes, as you have to, as if you don't, he'll just tell you to get
 out and you'll regain control. Once you tell him yes, he will explain the
 operations of the Trouble Center. Once he's done and you regain control,
 examine the board again and it will bring you to a list of troubles from
 various people. Scroll down with the Control Stick and select "???s"
 trouble. Say you want to take on ???s trouble and then the voice will tell
 you do it and do it right. Once you select ???s trouble, exit the Trouble
 Center and save your game at the Square. Then, head to Rogueport Sewers
 through the pipe south of Frankly's place.


 Rogueport Sewers
 ----------------

 Once here, head to Petal Meadows.


 Petal Meadows
 -------------

 Once you're in Petal Meadows, head through the pipe to Hooktail's Castle.


 Hooktail's Castle
 -----------------

 Here, save your game and jump on the yellow spring and hold down on the
 Control Stick to get on the bridge that the spring bounces you up to.
 Once you're on the bridge, head east into the next area. In this area,
 head and get on the airplane panel and fly over to the platform leading
 to the castle part. Once you land on the platform after flying from the
 airplane panel, enter the purple door leading to the actual castle. Once
 there, head east, ignoring the stairs and once you see a door, enter it.
 In this area, head east and enter the next door you see into the next
 area. In this area, head east and defeat or avoid the Dull Bones and
 once you see some stairs, jump up them and then enter the door into the
 next area. In this area, head east and save your game. Then, head up the
 stairs you see. Then, get on the huge green and black block and get to
 the very edge and launch Koops on the small green and black block. The
 block will then elevate. Once it comes to a complete stop, jump to the
 other side. Then, jump up the stairs and head west into the door. In
 this next area, head west and jump in the window. Then, follow the path
 once you jump in the window, and then once you see another open window,
 jump out of it. Once you do that, head west through the door into the
 next area. In this area, head up the stairs to where the small green
 and black block and the huge green and blocks are. Once there, walk
 one or two steps west of the small green block and then launch Koops
 and then keep him there, and get onto the huge green and black block.
 Then, release Koops and the block will elevate.

 Once it comes to a halt, head east and be careful not to fall off. Also,
 defeat the Paragoomba or just avoid it. Once you see a purple door, enter
 it. In this next area, head east and defeat or avoid the enemies that you
 encounter and hit the small yellow block and a huge black and yellow block
 will come down. Head one step directly west of the small yellow block and
 then luanch Koops and leave him there once you launch him. Then, jump up
 the stairs and then get on the huge black and yellow block. Then, release
 Koops and the block will elevate. Once it comes to a stop, head south on
 the edge of the railing, but be careful not to fall off. Once you're on
 the edge of the railing, head west until you see an airplane tile. Once
 you see an airplane tile, turn paper thin and slip through the bars to
 where the airplane panel is. Then, get to the very edge of the airplane
 panel, but try not to fall off. Once you're at the very edge, fly to the
 platform with another purple door on it. Once you're successfully on the
 platform, head through the purple door into the next area.

 In this area, jump up the stairs. Then, jump up the next set of stairs
 and then head through the next door into the next area. In this area,
 head west and defeat or avoid the enemies and once you see the path
 that leads to Hooktail, go through it and then defeat or avoid the
 Spiky Goomba. Wether you defeat the Spiky Goomba, jump up the stairs
 and then save your game and don't bother using the Recovery Block.
 Once you save your game, enter the door leading to where you fought
 Hooktail. Once there, head east and when you see a "!" pop up above
 Mario's head as usual, switch to Flurrie and use wind gust and a
 chest will be revealed. Once its revealed, open the chest to get an
 Attack FX B Badge. Once you get that, exit this chamber and then
 save your game again. Now, exit this place and back to Petal Meadows
 we go.


 Petal Meadows
 -------------

 Back here, head west through the pipe back to Rogueport Sewers.


 Rogueport Sewers
 ----------------

 Here, make your way back to Rogueport.


 Rogueport
 ---------

 Back here, head to the Rogueport Square and save your game. Then,
 head to the Inn and once there, go up the stairs to the upper level.
 Then, go west and open the door you've never opened before. Once you
 do that, head west, ignoring the door leading to Lovely Howz Badge
 Shop. Instead, head west and jump on the roof of the building you see.
 Once you jump on the building, head west and talk to Ms. Mowz. Her
 theme will commence. She won't join your party just yet, as you have
 to talk to her twice unless you talked to her before you went to
 Hooktail's Castle after signing up for her trouble. Once you talk to
 Ms. Mowz once, talk to her a second time and she'll talk for a bit
 and join your party. Once she joins your party, you'll get the Attack
 FX B Badge. Once you regain control, head back to the square and save
 your game. Then, head to Rogueport Sewers once more.


 Rogueport Sewers
 ----------------

 In here, head to the room with the Thousand Year Door and once there,
 as usual, jump on the pedestal in the middle of the room and a location
 of a new Crystal Star will be recorded on your magical map. Your group
 then decides to hand to Frankly's as usual.


 Rogueport
 ---------

 Back in Frankly's house, he'll explain that your next Crystal Star is
 located in Poshley Heights and that you must take the Excess Express
 train in town for the quickest way to Poshley Heights. Once the
 cutscene at Frankly's place is over and you regain control, exit his
 place and go to the Rogueport Square and save your game. Then, head
 to the west side of town and go back to Don Pianta. Once there, talk
 to Don Pianta who is laying in the bed and he will moan Fransesca.
 Then, a cutscene will commence. Your partner explains that Fransesca
 is in Keelhaul Key. Once you get the opportunity to tell Don Pianta's
 sidekicks that you'll bring back Fransesca, say yes. Once the talking
 is done and you regain control, head to the Rogueport Harbor and once
 there, save your game and then head to the Black Skull boat that is
 docked at the harbor and once you're on it, talk to Cortez and tell
 him you want to go to Keelhaul Key. He'll take you there in about 40
 seconds.


 Keelhaul Key
 ------------

 Once you arrive, get off the boat and head east across the bridge. Then,
 head east and southeast and enter the next area (it may be hard to see,
 but you'll notice it; its where Flavio and Pa-Patch came out of after
 you beat Pirate's Grotto and before Crump came out of the water with
 the huge ship). Once you enter the next area, head east and save your
 game. Then, rest at the Inn need be. Regardless, head east from the
 Save Point into the next area. In this area, head all the way east
 until you see Frankie and Fransesca. Once you see them, talk to Frankie
 and he will be surprised that Don Pianta is sick. Fransesca will
 eventually tell Frankie to tell her that he loves her 100 times. Wow!
 You'll actually have to press A 100 times when Frankie has to tell
 her that, so press A 100 times and then they'll talk a little more and
 then you'll regain control. Once you regain control, head east into the
 next area. In this area, defeat or avoid the enemies while making your
 way to the area with the bridge (the place where Bobbery was fending
 off the Embers when he told you to go, as he had to do what he had to
 do). Once there, head east and cross the bridge and then continue
 east into the next area. In this area, head east and you'll see a
 blue thing on the ground (it shouldn't be too hard to see, but it is
 a bit small, so it could be). Pick it up, as this is the Wedding Ring
 Frankie and Fransesca need. Once you get the Wedding Ring, head back
 to where Frankie and Fransesca are and give either one of them the
 Wedding Ring. Then, head back to the ship that you got to Keelhaul
 Key on. Once there, Fransesca will say a few words and you'll regain
 control. Once you regain control, get back on the ship and tell Cortez
 to go back to Rogueport.


 Rogueport
 ---------

 Once here, more talking will commence. Once its over, get off the ship
 and save your game. Then, head back to Don Pianta. Once you're in Don
 Pianta's place, a long cutscene will commence and Don Pianta tells Frankie
 that he is now head boss of the Pianta Syndicate and that he's retiring.
 In the cutscene, you'll also get a ticket for the Excess Express which we
 are about to go to in a few minutes. Once the cutscene is over and you
 regain control, exit Don Pianta's place and outside, you'll hear a voice
 and Beldam will come out of the shadows and show her ugly mug to you once
 more. You don't have to fight her, so don't worry. She just talks. Beldam
 will go to Poshley Heights, as she just found out that the Crystal Star is
 there thanks to you she says. Once she's done talking and you regain
 control, head to Merlin's place (the building with the Shine Sprite on it
 in the east side of town). Once there, power up Vivian if you haven't done
 so already, as even if you haven't got the higher rank (see the FAQs
 section of this guide to see what I'm talking about on this "rank") and
 have not powered her up once, she'll learn Fiery Jinx which is VERY useful
 in the latter parts of the game like now. If you have Fiery Jinx power up
 whatever characters you want and exit this place once you're done. Once
 you're done, save your game at the square. Then, head to the west side of
 town and head to the place where the Cheep Blimp leading to Glitzville is.
 Once there, save your game and try and jump up the stairs to the west where
 the Excess Express is and you'll get an e-mail. Read it if you want.
 Regardless, once you regain control, climb up the stairs to the west which
 lead to the Excess Express.

 Once you're there, head west, ignoring the Lakitu (the cloud) and talk to
 the Toad with the dark mushroom on his head. He'll ask you if you're
 boarding, so say yes and he'll check your ticket and he'll let you pass,
 as you have the Train Ticket. Once you get in the Excess Express and it
 starts taking off, after the screen fades, Chapter 6: 3 Days of Excess,
 will begin.


 Excess Express (Day One)
 ------------------------

 Once the screen switches to Mario and his partner in the Excess Express,
 your partner will talk for a minute and then your partner will notice a
 letter on the ground. The partner will pick it up and what the letter says
 will appear on the screen. Your partner thinks that Beldam wrote it. You
 will also hear about a dangerous monster that will attack the train if you
 go to Poshley Heights and don't get off the train. Anyway, once you regain
 control, take note that there's a Shine Sprite here, so check the Shine
 Sprites section of this guide to see how to get it. There's also a Dried
 Shroom here, but who needs that except for selling? Once you get those or
 if you just got the Shine Sprite and not the Dried Shroom, or vise versa,
 exit this room and head west (not east) through the door into the next
 room. In this area, head all the way west and head into the Item Shop if
 you need to restock on some Items. If not, ignore it. Anyway, once you
 reach the west side of this room, enter next door to the west that you
 see (it'll be like the door you just entered to get to this area in the
 previous area). In this next area, head west and ignore the three doors
 you see. Instead of entering the three doors you see, head all the way
 west and you'll see a Toad with a dark mushroom. Talk to him. He'll be
 surprised about the "sticky" threat and says he'll let you know
 immediately if he finds out anything else about this "sticky" threat.
 Once he's done talking and you regain control, head east through the door
 that you used to get to this area in and exit this area. Once you're in
 the area with the Item Shop again, head east and you'll see a bunch of
 the people on the train gathered in a single spot. Talk to the penguin
 with the magnifying glass. He's Pennington. Once the long cutscene ends
 and you regain control, talk to Pennington again and he'll tell everyone
 that YOU are the crook.

 He'll tell you to prove your innocence, find the missing Supper Stew. Once
 you regain control, head south and examine the stains on the ground. These
 are stains from the Supper Stew (the stains might be hard to see but
 you'll see them). Anyway, once you examine a stain, follow the stains
 which will lead you out of this room through the door to the east. Once you
 exit the kitchen (that's the area you were just in), follow the stains on
 the ground in this room (these are also hard to see) and once you see the
 number "003" above a door in this room, enter it.

 In room 003, talk to the chubby Toad. Once he's done talking, examine the
 drawer and you'll find a Galley Pot which contained the Supper Stew before
 the chubby Toad spilt it all. Once you find the Galley Pot, Pennington
 will come in and talk to the Toad about his crime. Once he's done talking
 and you regain control, exit this room and then head west through the door
 leading to the kitchen. Once you're in the kitchen, talk to the Cheep and
 he'll give you a Star Piece in return for the Galley Pot. Once you get the
 Star Piece from the Cheep, exit this room and go back to the previous
 room. Once there, save your game. Now, head to room "006". Once there,
 talk to Pennington and he'll hire you as his new assistant. Once he's done
 talking and you regain control, exit the room and head west and enter the
 third door from the left (be sure to ignore the middle door which is room
 "007") which is room "008". Inside room 008, talk to the girl Bob-Omb
 (the one on the right). Once the couple is done talking, speak to their
 son (the Bob-Omb to the far left) and he'll ask you since you retired
 from fighting (yes, he's one of the three Bob-ombs that you saw in
 Glitzville) and became a detective, that you please get him what he
 wants for his birthday, as he doesn't want any of the things his parents
 wants to get him. Tell the little Bob-Omb yes when he asks you will you
 help him get what he "really" wants for his birthday and he'll say a
 few more things and then you'll regain control.

 Once you regain control, exit this room and head west and talk to the
 conductor. He'll explain what the little Bob-Omb wants to do one day
 which is become a train engineer. Once he's done talking and you regain
 control, enter every room of the train until you find out that two people
 have lost two things which they want you to find. They are: Earrings, and a
 Gold Ring. Once you agree to find these two lost items for the two
 individuals that want them, head east through all the doors of the train,
 including the ones you haven't visited yet and save your game along the way
 but make sure you make your way to the eastern end of the train as far as
 you can go (in other words, go to the engineer's room). Once you're as far
 as you can go in the train, head east and talk to the guy in the black you
 haven't talked to yet. He is the engineer. He'll give you an Autograph. Once
 you get it,  head back to room 008 and talk to the little Bob-Omb kid. He'll
 give you a Shine Sprite in return for the Autograph.  Now, save your game and
 head to room 006 and talk to Pennington. Once he's done talking, talk to the
 conductor on the west end of the train. He'll tell you about the missing
 blanket which is your next assignment. When the conductor asks you to take
 this next assignment, gladly tell him yes and he'll be happy to hear it. Once
 you regain control, head to room "004". Once there, switch to Vivian and hide
 in the shadows.

 A ghost Toad will then appear, so come out of hiding and talk to the ghost.
 The ghost tells you that he'll give you the missing blanket if you'll find
 his diary for him, so tell him yes that you'll find his diary and he'll talk
 some more. Once he's done talking and you regain control, try and exit the
 room and he'll tell you NOT to read his diary. This is confusing! Now, exit
 this room and head back to the conductor and talk to him. He'll let you
 through to the room where the ghost's diary lies, so head into that room.
 Once inside, head west and look very closely at the middle crates, as they
 have a verrrrrrry small crack in them which is where the ghost's diary lies.
 Once you spot the crack, turn paper thin and slip through the small crack and
 walk north to get the Ragged Diary. Once you get that, turn paper thin and
 slip back through the crates and then exit the room. Take note: DO NOT READ
 HIS DIARY UNLESS YOU HAVE SAVED YOUR GAME EXTREMELY RECENTLY, as you'll get a
 "Game Over!". Anyway, once you exit the room with the Ragged Diary, head back
 to the room with the ghost and talk to him and give him the Ragged Diary. He
 won't leave the Excess Express just yet, though, as he's become quite
 accustomed to it after being in it for so long. Anyway, once you give him the
 Ragged Diary, he'll give you the blanket. Once you get the blanket, exit this
 room and give the blanket to the conductor and he'll give you a Mushroom in
 return. Once you get that, head back to room "005", which is your room and
 rest in the bed and Day Two of the Excess Express begins.


 Excess Express (Day Two)
 ------------------------

 When you wake up in Day Two, visit Pennington again and you'll see a blue
 rat in the room with him. They both talk for a long time. Once its over
 and you regain control, head to room "001" and once inside, grab the
 letter. Now, go back to Pennington and give it to him and he'll give you
 another assignment, which is to find the missing train passenger in Cabin
 001. Once he's done talking and you regain control, exit Pennington's room
 and head back to your room; room 005. Once inside, examine the letter on the
 floor and then use Vivian and hide in the shadows. Once you hide in the
 shadows, wait (this takes about 20-30 seconds) until a Toad slips out from
 under the bed. Once you see a Toad slip out from under the bed, come out
 of hiding and he'll be surprised to see you here (gee, seems a little
 suspicious, doesn't he?). He'll go on to tell you that you won't catch him
 that easily. He'll then start running around the room, so you have to catch
 him. To catch him, just chase him around the room and bump into him like you
 did to the Yoshi Egg in Glitzville. Once you bump into the Toad, he'll scream
 in pain and you'll automatically be carried back to Pennington's room. Once
 there, a cutscene will commence and Pennington talks to the suspect which
 obviously pretended to be Zip Toad. During the cutscene, the suspect will
 hand over the Briefcase which contains the Syrup the rat was looking for. The
 suspect will also give you the missing Gold Ring and the missing Earrings the
 two ladies lost. Once you recieve those items, a little more talking, and the
 train arrives at Riverside Station.


 Riverside Station
 -----------------

 When you arrive at Riverside Station, you'll see Doopliss come up out
 of the ground and talk for a second. Once he's done talking, he'll run
 away and the scene will switch to Mario and his partner on the Excess
 Express.


 Excess Express (Day Two)
 ------------------------

 Once the screen fades back in, exit this room and give the Earrings
 and the Gold Ring back to the two girls who lost it. Once you give the
 jewelry to the two girls, you'll get a Star Piece and 30 Coins (one
 of these goodies from each of them) for being so nice. Once you get
 those Items, save your game and head to the room with Cabin 001. Once
 there, head south through the black door you haven't been through yet;
 this will take you outside the train to where you need to go.


 Riverside Station
 -----------------

 When you truly get here, head east down the stairs and talk to the conductor.
 He'll talk for a minute and he'll give you a Station Key. Once you get the
 Station Key, head west and north up the stairs you see (where Pennington is)
 and save your game. Then, unlock the door which leads to the Riverside
 Station. Once you're inside the Riverside Station, head east through the door
 into the next area. In this area, head east and you'll see three wooden
 gates. You'll notice that one of them doesn't have a full bottom which
 reaches to the floor like the other two. Turn tube mode and roll under the
 first wooden gate from the left (the one that doesn't have a full bottom) and
 then roll or run east through the gates until you come across a blue "!"
 switch. Hit the blue "!" once you come across it, as it activates stairs,
 thus enabling you further access into the station. Once that happens, exit
 the gates by turning tube mode and rolling back into the previous area. Once
 there, head east up the newly formed pink stairs and then once you climb
 them, head  west and climb up the rest of the stairs. Then, head through the
 door into the  next area. In this next area, beat the Ruff Puff that you
 encounter. Once you  beat the Ruff Puff, head east and beat the next Ruff
 Puff. Once they are out of the picture, from the entrance of this room, head
 north and slightly west, and climb up the stairs. This next part is a bit
 tricky, as you can see several rotating gears rotating across the room. Wait
 till the first one stops. When it does, jump on it. Just study the rotating
 gears so that you get used to their pattern, and so that you jump at just the
 right time. E-mail me if you don't get how to do it, and I'll gladly help the
 best way I can.

 Once you finally cross the rotating gears to the other side, turn tube mode
 and roll east under the huge cylinder blocking your path. Once you roll under
 the huge cylinder and get to the other side, head east and jump on the spinning
 yellow cog. Then, jump to the spinning tealish-grayish-brownish cylinder to
 the east of the spinning yellow cog. Once you get on the spinning cylinder,
 head east and jump on the key-like dark yellow thing to the east. Once you get
 on that, switch to Koops and launch his shell to retrieve the Storage Key.
 Once you get the Stoarge Key, exit this room completely just like how you came
 in it. Once you exit the room and are back in the previous area, head down the
 stairs and head east and unlock the door and head into the next area. In this
 area, switch to Flurrie, as you're about to need here for this next part, and
 head east down the stairs and defeat the two Poison Pokeys you encounter. Once
 you defeat them, head east from where you got down the stairs from and them
 jump on the block you see. Once you jump on it, jump again and a Thunder Rage
 will pop out. Grab it if you want to. Anyway, once you're done with the
 Thunder Rage business, head east down the next set of stairs. Then, head south
 down some more stairs. Be sure to get the Shine Sprite in the Shine Sprite
 Block awaiting you (get it by hitting it with your Hammer). Once you get it,
 head west and defeat the two Ruff Puffs and the two Poison Pokeys you see.
 Then, head continue west until you see some more stairs. When you see more
 stairs, climb down them and then once you climb down them, head west and
 you'll see a dead end (or so it looks like one, but it's actually not). What
 to do?

 What to do? Well, this is why I told you to switch to Flurrie, as you have
 to use her wind gust to reveal a door leading to the next area, so blow
 away until you reveal the door. You'll have to strip away three layers of
 paper. Once you strip away all the paper, head through the newly revealed
 door into the next area. In this next area, head west down the stairs and
 defeat the two Spiky Parabuzzies. Then, head east down the next set of
 stairs and then it may seem like another dead end, but it isn't. No, you
 "don't" have to use Flurrie. Just head east and jump off and you'll fall
 down a somewhat long fall (no, it isn't a bottomless pit). Anyway, once
 you fall down, you'll be in a new area, but this is basically just an
 area for experience, as its optional. Defeat the enemies in this area
 for some nice experience. Once you're done in this area, jump on the
 yellow spring and you'll be back to the top of this area where the stairs
 are. Once there, climb back up the stairs and then head west to where you
 defeated the two Parabuzzies at. Once there, turn tube mode and roll into
 the area that you see which you can roll into. Once you roll into the
 unexplored area, roll across the small path and once you get to the end of
 the path, you'll be in the "optional area" as I called it. "But", in a new
 part of it.

 In this new area, defeat the Spiked Parabuzzy that comes flying at you. Once
 you defeat him, grab the Dried Shroom if you want (it's in the thing you
 land in after rolling through the area after turning tube mode.). Regardless,
 head west and south through the door into the next area. In this area, head
 west through the next door you see into the next new area. Here, defeat the
 Goomba that attacks you. Then, head west and defeat the next two Goombas you
 see. Doing this will cause the three boxes in the middle of the room to open
 up and reveal three blue switches. Each with a number on them. To solve this
 puzzle, hit the "3" block three times with your Hammer. Then, hit the "10"
 block ten times with your Hammer. Finally, hit the "1" block once with your
 Hammer. Doing this will cause the three switches to elevate, thus revealing
 more stairs. Once you regain control, climb up the stairs and be sure to get
 the Shine Sprite along the way by using Koops's shell. Once you get the
 Shine Sprite and climb up the stairs, head east into the next area. In this
 area, open the huge chest you see for the Ultra Boots. You'll need these.
 As usual, Toadette will show up and give you a brief explanation of how to
 use the Ultra Boots...or, Spring Jump if you perfer. Anyway, once the
 tutorial is over and you regain control, line yourself up with the boxes
 (you should be able to figure out where to position yourself) and use Spring
 Jump like Toadette just taught you. If done correctly, you should be on the
 long pipe slightly below the ceiling.

 Once you're on the pipe, move east with the Control Stick (be careful not to
 fall off by pressing B or A) and then press "B" or "A" to jump off the pipe
 when it comes to an end (what I mean by when it comes to an end is the pipe
 will eventually make it where you can't move anymore east after you've moved
 east past the crates). Once you get to the next part of this area, turn paper
 thin and slip through the grate and you'll be an area that you've already
 been to. In this area, head east and jump on the crate (its in the east
 corner) and then switch to Yoshi and use him to fly over to the crate to the
 left (the one beside the door and the gate). Once you get on that wooden
 crate, use Spring Jump again and once you're on the pipe, move west on it
 until Mario's feet are facing the gate area. Take note that you can't get the
 Elevator Key you see right this second, so jump down into the gate area. Once
 you're in the gate area, jump on the wooden crates and Spring Jump the
 platform with the Elevator Key and it will drop down, so grab it and then
 jump on the wooden crate to the right (the one below the pipe, but NOT the
 one you jumped on to get hit the platform to get the Elevator Key, but to the
 other wooden crate in this gate area) and then use Spring Jump and get back
 on the pipe again. Once you get back on the pipe, move east and drop down
 into the area outside the gate area.Once there, backtrack to the area where
 you unlocked the station's door at and once there, use the Recovery Block
 and save your game.

 Now, head back into the station and once inside, head north and east, but
 don't go into the small door. Instead, use the Elevator Key on the big door
 (the door directly west and north from the small wooden door). You'll
 automatically go up the elevator and be carried to a new area. In this next
 area, you'll see tons of black things called "Smorgs". Once you regain
 control, switch to Flurrie and use her wind gust to blow them away. Keep
 blowing until they all leave the room.Once they do, a lever will appear. Pull
 it and then head west up the stairs and then hit the blue "!" switch to lower
 the drawbridge. Once you lower the drawbridge and you regain control, head to
 the outside part to where Pennington and the others are. Once there, save
 your game and then head back into the Excess Express.


 Excess Express (Day Two)
 ------------------------

 Once you're back in the Excess Express, sleep in your bed and get ready for
 the last day of this train.


 Excess Express (Day Three)
 --------------------------

 Once you get in Day Three, exit your room and talk to the engineer. Smorgs
 will then swarm the train and attack it again. Once you regain control, head
 to the baggage car (the place where you got the Ragged Diary for the ghost
 at). Once there, you'll see tons of Smorgs, so use Flurrie's wind gust to
 blow them away. When you blow them away, you'll free two Toads of the train.
 Once they're done talking and you regain control, line yourself up with the
 crates like you did after you got the Ultra Boots. Once you line yourself up
 correctly, use Spring Jump and get on the pipe. Once you're on the pipe,
 move left to the wooden crate. Then, drop down and head west into the next
 area. In this area, you'll see tons more Smorgs. Jump on the roof of the
 train (you should see a small grayish metal platform) by jumping on the
 small grayish metal platform. Once you get on the roof of the train, ignore
 using your Hammer to swipe away the Smorgs, as you don't even have to.
 Instead, just head east, running through them. Once you run through the army
 of Smorgs, a cutscene will commence and the Smorgs will gather up with some
 pink Smorgs, which is obviously the main source of the Smorgs. The giant
 Smorg will have all the train passengers in his grasp, so in order to rescue
 them, we're gonna have to take this guy apart. Piece by piece. Read the
 Bosses section to see how to win this fight against Smorg. Once you win,
 the Smorgs will finally be gone for good (ah, peace).


 Excess Express
 --------------

 Once the crew gets done talking and the screen fades, rest in your bed and
 then exit your room and save your game. Once you save your game, exit the
 train and you'll finally be at Poshley Heights.


 Poshley Heights
 ---------------

 Once you arrive here, feel free to look around town for as long as you want.
 Whenever you're ready, from the entrance, head southeast and enter the next
 area. In that area, head south into the next area and in this next area, head
 east and north and you'll see the Poshley Sanctum. Go to where the locked
 door is and examine the letter just left of the locked door. Pennington will
 then show up and talk for a minute. Once he's done talking and the screen
 fades, the scene will switch to the Shadow Sirens, except minus the Vivian.
 But who is their replacement? Doopliss, of course! The Shadow Sirens now have
 the Crystal Star...or do they? The scene then switches to Mario, his partner,
 and Pennington in the Poshley Santum.


 Poshley Sanctum
 ---------------

 Once the talking's done and you regain control, head north and get on the
 star marker to the west (its the burgandy looking square-star thing on the
 ground). Once you're on that, use Spring Jump and you'll be on another pipe.
 Take note that you can get the L Emblem here, which is a really cool Badge,
 so check the Badges section to see how to get it. Anyway, once you get on
 the pipe, head east and drop down to the next platform when the pipe comes
 to a halt. Once you're on the next platform, get on the next star marker
 and use Spring Jump to get on another pipe. Once you're on this next pipe,
 drop down to the next platform and get on the next star maker and use
 Spring Jump again to get on another pipe. Once there, head south and get
 on the airplane panel and turn airplane mode (get to the very edge of the
 panel and then fly) and fly to the west and if done correctly, you should
 be on another platform on the west side of the room. Once you're there,
 head north and step on the next star marker. Then, use Spring Jump to get
 onto yet another pipe. Once you're on this last pipe (of this room, that
 is), move slightly to the west and drop down on the platform when Mario's
 feet is facing it. Once you get on the platform successfully, head north
 and jump on the blue "!" switch, but be careful not to fall off. Once you
 hit the blue "!" switch, part of the curtain in the room will rise up and
 a pipe will be revealed. Head down the newly revealed pipe into the next
 area. In this area, you'll notice that you're in the background instead
 of the foreground. Head east through the door into the next part of the
 Poshley Sanctum. In this new area, I suggest defeating all of the Dark
 Boos in here even though there's alot, as it is WELL worth the experience.

 You'll probably gain at least one level here. Anyway, whenever you're
 ready, head north from the entrance of this room and grab the Crystal Star
 and Chapter 6 finally ends, but Peach's Event doesn't start just yet. When
 you get the opportunity to save your game, save it. Once you regain control,
 exit this area completely and then once you're back in the background, head
 west and head down the pipe and talk to Pennington. Once he's done talking
 and you regain control, exit the sanctum and Peach's Event will occur.


 Peach's Event
 -------------

 This is the last Peach's Event of the game. It starts off with Grodus talking
 to an X-Naut. Once Grodus and the X-Naut are done talking, the scene switches
 switches to Peach in her room. Peach wonders why TEC hasn't called her, as it
 is getting time for TEC to call her. The door will then open after she says
 that and you'll gain control of her, so head through the door into the next
 area. In this area, head east through the door leading to TEC's room. Once
 you're in TEC's room, another cutscene between Peach and TEC will commence.
 When Peach goes to send her next letter to Mario, Grodus will come in with two
 come in with two X-Nauts and they will deactivate TEC. After the long cutscene,
 save your game when you get the next opportunity and get ready for the next
 Bowser Event.


 Bowser's Event
 --------------

 In this Bowser's Event, Bowser and Kammy Koopa will arrive at Rogueport and
 talk for a minute. Once they're done, you'll see Luigi for a second and then
 the scene will switch. Get ready to play as Bowser like in the original Mario
 for the NES again! Wee! After beating the castle dungeon with Bowser, he and
 Kammy Koopa will arrive in a training room. They spot a Crystal Star and they
 think it's real (did you think they wouldn't?) but its not. The Rawk Hawk then
 comes in and Bowser calls him weak, and flattens him like a pancake. LOL! The
 The Crystal Star then breaks, and Kammy Koopa finds out that it was a glass
 Crystal Star (just Bowser's luck). The Rawk Hawk then talks for a second and
 then the cutscene basically ends. Once its over, we're FINALLY back at
 Rogueport.


 Rogueport
 ---------

 Back in Rogueport, lets head over to Rogueport Sewers, shall we? But first,
 there's something you need to know. I recommend getting your characters to
 "ultra rank" here (this means they will have more powerful moves when you
 power them up at Merlin's place). To see how to get this "ultra rank", refer
 to the Side Quests section of this guide. I also suggest stocking up on some
 Items. Anyway, whenever you're ready, go on down to Rogueport Sewers.


 Rogueport Sewers
 ----------------

 In Rogueport Sewers, head to the room with the Thousand Year Door and once
 there, get on the pedestal in the middle of the room. You'll get the location
 of the last Crystal Star recorded on your magical map. As always, the group
 doesn't know what to do, so the scene switches to Frankly.


 Rogueport
 ---------

 This time, Frankly will tell you that the location of the last Crystal Star is
 on the moon itself. Your partner is surprised to hear this. Frankly will then
 get a book out and tell you that he's going to look up how to get to the moon
 and tell you to come back later. Once you regain control, exit Frankly's place
 and then head to Rogueport Square. Once at the square, head directly east of
 the Save Point and get under the huge wooden stand. Once you're under there,
 use Spring Jump and you'll knock down the huge chest that was on top of it.
 Once the chest is knocked down, open it, as it contains the Ultra Hammer.
 Sweet! Once you get the Ultra Hammer, Toadette will give you a brief tutorial
 on how to use it. This is the last time she'll come, however (I was happy,
 she's annoying). Once Toadette leaves and you regain control, save your game
 at the Save Point and then head back to Frankly's place. Once inside, Frankly
 explains that you need to go Fahr Outpost and use the cannon there to launch
 yourself to the moon. How to get there? A pipe in Rogueport Sewers. Once you
 regain control, exit Frankly's place and head to the west side of town. Once
 there, turn paper thin and slip through the gate leading to Rogueport Sewers.


 Rogueport Sewers
 ----------------

 Once in Rogueport Sewers, switch to Yoshi and fly west to the area where the
 door leading to Twilight Town is. Once there, bash the gray block with your
 Hammer. Then, enter the newly revealed room. The room has a blue pipe in it.
 Enter it and Chapter 7 begins.


 Fahr Outpost (Outskirts)
 ------------------------

 Chapter 7: Mario Shoots The Moon, is the semi-final chapter and you start off
 on the outskirts of Fahr Outpost. Once you regain control, head east through
 the various areas, defeating or avoiding the enemies along the way (I suggest
 you defeat them, as you can gain a good bit of experience and don't worry
 about dying; you have Showstopper which kills all the enemies in the areas
 if you get an "Excellent"). Eventually, you'll come across the true part of
 Fahr Outpost.


 Fahr Outpost
 ------------

 Once you arrive at Fahr Outpost, you'll see a thing to measure the wind with
 and you'll see it blowing. That's how you know you're in the true part of the
 outpost instead of just the outskirts. Anyway, once you regain control, feel
 free to look around the village. Whenever you're ready, from the first area
 of the "true" part of the outpost (NOT the outskirts), head east into the
 next area. In this area, save your game at the nearby Save Point. Then, head
 east and you'll see the legendary cannon that's able to blast you up to the
 moon. Head south from the cannon and speak with the green Bob-omb with the
 white beard. This is the mayor. Speak with him with Bobbery in your party.
 Once you're done talking with the mayor,  head to Rogueport Sewers (NOT
 through the west side of town).


 Rogueport Sewers
 ----------------

 Once you're in Rogueport Sewers, head east past the Save Point and slip through
 the gates by turning paper thin. Once you slip through the gates, enter the
 pipe (take note that this is the pipe that leads to the room that has the pipe
 leading to the room with the Thousand Year Door in it) into the next area. In
 this next area, head west past the pipe that leads to the Thousand Year Door
 and head along west into the next area. In this area, head west and break the
 huge yellow block. Then, continue west, ignoring all the huge blue "!" blocks
 into the next area. In this area, head west and break the huge gray block.
 Now, ground pound all four huge blue "!" switches. Doing so will cause pipes
 to appear which give you shortcuts to various places you'll need to go during
 this chapter. Once you hit the blue "!" switches and you regain control, head
 to Poshley Heights using the blue pipe. Keep going down the newly revealed
 pipes until you find the leading to Poshley Heights.


 Poshley Heights
 ---------------

 In Poshley Heights, head to the west side of town and go to where the blue
 house is and talk to the gold Bob-omb which is Goldbob, who you'll need to
 activate the cannon in Fahr Outpost. Once you talk to him, tell him you'll
 give him "EVERYTHING" when he asks you what you'll give him so that you can
 use the cannon. He then takes all your Coins. Don't fret, he'll give them
 back. Anyway, once you give him all your Coins, say "yes" to his next batch
 of questions and then he'll give you the Goldbob Guide. Once you get that,
 he'll give you back your Coins and you'll regain control. Save your game at
 the nearby Save Point. Now, head to Twilight Town. The four pipes you just
 revealed in Rogueport Sewers (one of which you used to get to Poshley
 Heights) don't lead to Twilight Town, so you're gonna have to go there the
 hard way. Note: exit Poshley Heights using the blue warp pipe lead you here
 from Rogueport Sewers.


 Petalburg
 ---------

 In Petalburg, talk to the Koopa Troopa who greeted you when you first came
 there in the game. He'll tell you to go to Keelhaul Key for more information.
 Let's head there. One of the four pipes in Rogueport Sewers also leads here.


 Keelhaul Key
 ------------

 In Keelhaul Key, talk to Pa-Patch. He'll give you more information on General
 White's whereabouts. Once you talk to Pa-Patch, head to Rogueport.


 Rogueport
 ---------

 In Rogueport, head to Glitzville via the Cheep Blimp.


 Glitzville
 ----------

 Once you're in Glitzville, head to the juice bar and talk to the bartender
 there. He'll tell you to go a place with a "big tree" (gee, sound familiar?).
 Head over to Boggly Woods via one of the four pipes in Rogueport Sewers.


 Boggly Woods
 ------------

 Once you arrive here, you'll see the Great Tree staring you in the face, so
 head on into the Great Tree.


 Great Tree
 ----------

 Once inside, talk to the Puni that you see. He'll tell you that General White
 was going somewhere "dark", so head over to Twilight Town the long way, as it
 doesn't have a shortcutted warp pipe.


 Twilight Town
 -------------

 Once here, talk to the guy in front of the Inn. He'll talk to you about General
 White. General White isn't in Twilight Town, sadly, so head to Fahr Outpost.


 Fahr Outpost (Outskirts)
 ------------------------

 Once you're back at the outskirts of Fahr Outpost, head through the various
 areas and defeat the enemies along the way.


 Fahr Outpost
 ------------

 Once you're in the true part of the outpost, talk to the mayor. You'll see the
 General himself (White, that is) enter into the house to your north, so head
 in there. Once inside, you'll find General White finally, so walk up to him
 and press "A" on him and keep trying to wake him up (this takes several tries).
 until he wakes up. Once he wakes up, General White will talk for a minute, and
 then he'll leave the house. Once you regain control, exit the house and talk to
 the mayor. He'll lead you west into the first part of the outpost, so follow
 him once you regain control. When you're in the area where the mayor went, from
 the entrance, head west and you'll see him in the middle of the area. Talk to
 him again and he'll talk and a cutscene will commence. A long one at that. When
 the cannon is fired, after about 30 seconds or so, you'll land on The Moon.


 The Moon
 --------

 Once you're here, your partner will talk while Mario looks around to his left
 and right. Take note that gravity is low on The Moon, so you'll move, jump, and
 even Hammer slower. Anyway, once you regain control, head east and save your
 game. Then, head southeast into the next area. In this area, head east through
 the area, defeating or avoid the enemies along the way. Take note that there
 are quite a bit of Moon Clefts on here, and unless you Superguard, they can be
 quite annoying. Take note that the rocks you see on the ground are not actually
 rocks; they're Moon Clefts, so be careful. Anyway, once you get to the next
 area, head east through the area while defeating or avoiding the Moon Clefts.
 Once you get to the next unexplored area, head east and you won't encounter a
 Moon Cleft in front of your face. Instead, you'll see a purple oval shaped
 thing being shot at you. This "oval" shaped thing is actually a Z-Yux shooting
 at you (remember their counterparts from the Great Tree?). Anyway, once you
 get in this area, head east and advance through the enemies into the next area.
 In this area, switch to Bobbery if you don't already have him in and you'll
 notice a big rock with a "crack" in it just south of the background where you
 can see the X-Naut Fortress. Use Bobbery to blow up the crack, thus revealing
 a crack. Once the pipe is revealed, head down it and you'll be in the
 background, so head east into the X-Naut Fortress.


 X-Naut Fortress
 ---------------

 Once you're here, your partner comments on the place being suspicious and you
 regain control. Once you regain control, head east into the next area. In this
 area, you'll see two X-Naut PhDs and they'll attack you. Defeat them and once
 you regain control, use the Recovery Block to restore your HP/FP. Then, save
 your game at the Save Point. Now, head east into the next area. In this area,
 head east and defeat the X-Naut PhD and head through the door into the next
 area. In this area, the tiles will light up then go back to normal color.
 This part is a bit hard to explain, but I'll try. First of all, keep exiting
 and re-entering the room to learn what tiles to step on. Once you learn what
 tiles to step on and which ones not to, enter the room again and step on the
 tiles that you have to step on and open the chest for an Elevator Key. Once
 you get the Elevator Key, the tiles will become normal tiles, so just exit
 the room (you won't have to worry about stepping on the wrong tiles and
 whatnot) like you would with normal tiles. Before you leave, break the yellow
 "?" for a Super Shroom. Not very useful, but it'll help. Now, head west and
 use the Elevator Key on the elevator. You'll get an option to go to Sublevel
 1 or Sublevel 2. Choose Sublevel 2 and you'll be in a new area. In this area,
 watch out for the Z-Yux shooting the purple oval shaped beam at you. Anyway,
 when you get in Sublevel 2, head west and head into the door at the west end
 of the hallway. Once you enter that door, you'll be in another new area. In
 this area, you'll see some more tiles, and yes, they're electic, so don't
 just go stepping on them being step-happy. Anyway, once you get in this room,
 what you have to do is step on the correct tiles that the diagram on the wall
 indicates (the diagram is the purple thing that is shaped kind of like an
 "A".). Once you get the Card Key, exit the room and head to the east end of
 the hallway, defeating or avoiding the enemies along the way. Enter the door
 at the east end of the hallway.

 Once you do, you'll be in Grodus's room. In Grodus's room, Grodus isn't there,
 but an enemy is. Ignore him or fight him and head east through the door behind
 Grodus's desk, or whatever it is. In this next area, head to where the computer
 screen is and grab the green Card Key on the desk. Now, exit this room and
 Grodus' room completely. Once you are back in the hallway, head west and enter
 the first door you see (the door with the green lamp above it) and you'll be in
 the locker room where Peach dressed up as an X-Naut.

 Once you're there, examine the two letters on the desk and then exit the room.
 Now, head all the way west and ignore the first elevator with the red light
 and make your way to the one with the green light. Once you're at the elevator
 with the green light, enter it and choose to go to Sublevel 1. Once you're at
 Sublevel 1, head east and defeat the Elite X-Naut running around the area.
 Then, continue east and activate the red terminal just west of the locked door.
 Now's when you have to enter that "code" you obtained in the locker room. In
 case you don't remember, the code is "014029", so enter that when you activate
 the terminal. If entered correctly, the locked door will open which leads to
 the next room. Enter the locked door into the next area. In this area, head
 east and talk to the thwomp statue. You'll have to answer some questions like
 you did in the Shhwonk Fortress, so look in the Mini Games section of this
 guide to see what the correct answer to each question is. If you fail the quiz,
 you'll have to fight two X-Yux enemies which will be EXTREMELY difficult
 (almost impossible), so please look at the Mini Games section of this guide for
 the correct answers. Once you get the quiz right, the angry thwomp will give
 you an Elevator Key, so exit this room. Back in the previous room, head up the
 elevator and go back to Sublevel 2. Once you're in Sublevel 2, use the Elevator
 Key on the elevator with the red light that I told you to ignore earlier to
 unlock it. Once you unlock it, head up to Sublevel 3.

 Once you're in Sublevel 3, head west and avoid or defeat the enemies along the
 way and head into the door at the west end of the hallway. In this area, you'll
 have to do another tile thing, so just follow the tiles. When you step on a
 tile, another tile will light up which indicates where you have to go, so
 follow the tile as you step on the tiles. Once you clear the tile puzzle, grab
 the yellow Card Key and break the yellow "?" block for an HP Drain. Now, exit
 this room and when you're in the hallway again, head to the door at the east
 end of the hallway while defeating or avoiding the enemies. This next room
 contains a puzzle and in order to solve it, you're gonna need to know the
 correct order to place the Card Keys in each of the three terminals. First
 off, place the red Card Key in the first terminal from your left. Then, place
 the yellow Card Key in the middle terminal. Finally, place the green Card Key
 in the first terminal from the right.

 Once you unlock the door, enter it. In this next area, head east and you'll see
 a blue "!" switch. You can't reach it, so throw Bobbery and he'll hit explode,
 thus hitting the blue "!" switch. Now, head west and turn paper thin and slip
 through the bars onto the conveyor belt. Once you're on the conveyor belt,
 use Vivian and hide in the shadows to reach the next side of the conveyor belt.
 Once you reach the other side, jump to where the elevator lift is. Then, jump
 on the elevator lift itself when it comes down and it will carry you up to
 where another elevator moving to the left and right is, and to where another
 platform to your north is. When the lift reaches the top, jump north to the
 gray platform (the cage is in front of it, so it kinda limits visibility).
 Once you reach the gray platform, jump to the west elevator that moves to the
 left and to the right. Once you get on it, wait until it rides to the left
 as far as it can go (until it doesn't move to the left anymore) and then jump
 onto the next platform and head down the warp pipe and you'll be in the
 background. This part is HARD, as visibility is somewhat limited due to you
 being in the background and not the foreground. Jump across each elevator
 platform and once you reach the end of the elevator platform jumping, you'll
 see an Ultra Shroom. To get it, jump west when the elevator gets close enough.
 Once you get the Ultra Shroom, make your way back to the foreground via the
 small warp pipe on the lower platform and not the high platform area where
 you got the Ultra Shroom. Once you make it back to the foreground, head back
 to the background the way you did when you first entered this room. (you don't
 have to use Bobbery this time) Once you make it to the background, jump on
 the huge spinning red cog (this could be hard). Then, jump to the small red
 cog. Now, jump to the elevator when it comes down and is within reach. Once
 you get on the elevator, when it fully elevates, jump to the right platform.


 Now, you'll have to do some more elevator jumping like you did a moment ago,
 so be prepared. Once you cross the elevators, enter the long warp pipe and
 you'll finally arrive back in the foreground. Once you're in the foreground,
 head south and get on the airplane panel and turn into an airplane and fly
 left, avoiding every ledge until you see a ledge with a Card Key on it.
 When you see the blue Card Key, get on the platform and grab the Card Key.
 Once you get the Card Key, drop off the ledge and use the Recovery Block and
 save your game at the Save Point. Now, go back to the background "AGAIN"
 *sighs* and make your way on the small red cog again. Then, jump on the
 elevator when it is reach and when it carry you "HALF WAY UP" (NOT ALL THE
 WAY), jump to the platform on the right. Now, go down the long pipe to the
 next area. Now, jump to the elevator you see. Then, jump to the next one
 when it is in reach. Once you get on the second elevator, let it move to
 the right as far as it can go and then jump to the platform with the blue
 "!" switch on it. Once you're there, hit the switch. This will cause stairs
 to appear. Now, head across the elevators again and jump to the platform with
 the pipe and then head up the newly formed yellow stairs. Once you reach the
 top, use your blue Card Key you got a few minutes ago on the terminal and
 enter the now unlocked door. In this area, you'll see Lord Crump. A cutscene
 will commence and then he'll summon up a newer, more powerful, more AWESOME
 version of his older machine, Magnus Von Grapple. Make way for Magnus Von
 Grapple 2.0, the ULTIMATE fighting machine!

 Read the Bosses section to see how to pummel Lord Crump again. Once you beat
 him, Magnus Von Grapple 2.0 will explode and Lord Crump goes flying into outer
 space into another planet. Once you get the opportunity to save your game, save
 it and Bowser's next event occurs.


 Bowser's Event
 --------------

 In this event, you'll see Bowser and Kammy Koopa in Poshley Heights looking
 for a Crystal Star (haven't they tried and failed enough?). Head to the sanctum
 and examine the door and the lock will break due to Bowser's rage. Enter the
 sanctum and collect the Crystal Star. A cutscene will commence. Once its over,
 save your game when you get the opportunity and since Peach isn't in the X-Naut
 Fortress, there's no Peach's Event this time.


 X-Naut Fortress
 ---------------

 Despite what your partner says about heading back to Rogueport to find Princess
 Peach's whereabouts, head to TEC's room first. To get there, head to Sublevel 4
 via the elevator. Once you're at Sublevel 4, head east through the door leading
 to TEC's room. Once there, the light will come up after your partner speaks and
 a cutscene will commence. TEC will tell you that Peach is in the Palace of
 Shadow and he'll shut down all AI functions to unlock the teleporter which is
 where you need to go. TEC will completely shut down after awhile, and you'll
 eventually regain control. Once you regain control, exit this room and head to
 Sublevel 2. Once there, head west and enter the second door you see and inside
 you'll find the teleporter TEC was talking about. To activate it, press the red
 button to the north of it. Once you do, it will be activated so go ahead and
 get on it. TEC will then say his last words to Peach and the scene will switch
 back to Mario. Exit the room and you'll be back in Rogueport. In the sewers.


 Rogueport Sewers
 ----------------

 Once here, Professor Frankly will immediately start talking and another
 cutscene will commence. Once Frankly leaves and you regain control, head to
 the room with the Thousand Year Door. Once there, step on the pedestal in the
 middle of the room and then the seven Crystal Stars will cause the Thousand-
 Year Door to crack, thus opening it. Once it opens, a dark portal will come
 in but it disappears. Anyway, once you regain control, head into the now
 opened, Thousand-Year Door. Chapter 8 now begins.


 Palace of Shadow
 ----------------

 Chapter 8: The Thousand-Year Door is the hardest Chapter in the game (go
 figure, its the last Chapter), so be prepared to have lots of Items before
 going here. Once you gain control, head east through the door into the next
 area. In this area, head east down the stairs and into the door leading to
 the next area while defeating or avoiding the Swoopula enemies (if you choose
 to fight them, take note that Showstopper will defeat them). Once you get in
 the next area, hit the nearby yellow "?" block to get a Shooting Star. You
 don't need it, though. Anyway, head east after breaking the yellow "?", head
 east and defeat the Dry Bones. Then, continue east and when you see stairs,
 follow the path until you get to the end of the area. Once you're at the end
 of the area, enter the next room. In this room, you'll see a red "?" block so
 hit it with your Hammer to get an All or Nothing Badge. This Badge isn't very
 useful, so I don't recommend using it. Anyway, once you get it, head through
 the area while defeating the enemies. Note: This room has spikes all over the
 place and to avoid them, use Nintendo Power's Strategy Guide to see the
 precise location of the maps, or walk very slowly and the spikes will usually
 not hit you. It's hard if you don't know what you are doing, so be careful.
 Anyway, once you reach the end of the area, head through the door into the
 next area. In this area, save your game at the nearby Save Point.Then, head
 east and you'll see some flames spinning around in a circle. The trick is,
 use Yoshi to run through the flames. This could be tricky, so be prepared.
 If you get hit by the flames or if you fall in the water, you'll start from
 the beginning of the area, so be prepared for annoying part. Run through
 three flames and you'll encounter two spinning flames stuck together (like on
 Super Mario 64 in Lethal Lava Land) and a Phantom Ember. Quickly run through
 the two spinning flames and defeat the Phantom Ember (you have to).

 "RIGHT" when you beat the Phantom Ember, hold "RIGHT" on the "Control Stick"
 so that you'll immediately head east after the battle. Anyway, once the
 battle ends, you should drop down onto the next platform once you realize
 that you're running with Yoshi. Once you're on the next platform (on one of
 two steps, actually) the flames will change their pattern. They will come
 towards you like a wave in the ocean and then disappear when they come to the
 wall of the platform. This is just like in Pirate's Grotto where the waves
 were rough if you remember right. Anyway, once you see these "new" flames,
 you'll notice that some come like waves like in Pirate's Grotto and others
 come like floating flames. Before you go to the flames, turn into tube mode
 and then get to where the flames are. Jump over the wave-like flame when
 you're in tube mode and roll under the ones floating in the air. Do this
 until you successfully pass all of the incoming flames. Once you do, head
 east into the next area. In this area, head all the way east and you'll see a
 locked door and a black- colored dead pile of bones. Examine the bonepile and
 he'll come to life just like in Hooktail's Castle. Then, tons and tons of Dry
 Bones will appear. This time around, it isn't like Hooktail's Castle.
 Instead, you have to "find" the black-colored bonepile you just woke up. Bash
 your way through the Dry Bones with your Hammer until you find the black-
 colored bonepile. When you do, engage battle with him and defeat him (he
 gives you lots of Star Points) and then he'll drop the key needed to get into
 the next area. Once you get it, head east to the locked door and use the
 Palace Key on the door to unlock it.

 Now, enter the door leading to the next area. In this area, break the nearby
 yellow "?" block to get an Ultra Shroom. Get rid of something such as a Super
 Shroom for this Item, as you'll NEED it! Once you get the Ultra Shroom,
 beware that there are flying Bombshell Bill enemies and if you engage in
 battle with them (they'll always get the First Strike), you'll get hurt 5
 unless you Guard or Superguard. Avoid these guys at all costs. Use Vivian to
 hide in the shadows to avoid the Bombshell Bills. Keep heading east while
 avoiding the Bombshells with Vivian and defeat the B. Bill Blasters that you
 encounter at the end of the first part of the area. Once you defeat them,
 head down the stairs and defeat the nearby Phantom Ember then continue on to
 the west and defeat the next Phantom Ember you encounter. Then, continue west
 down the next set of stairs and then you'll be in the last part of this area.
 In this part of the area, you'll notice more Bombshell Bills are coming
 directly at you. Use Vivian to hide in the shadows to avoid them. Keep
 heading east while avoiding them with Vivian and then defeat the B. Bill
 Blasters at the end of the area. Then, advance on into the next area. In this
 area, head east and defeat or avoid all the enemies and break all three "?"
 boxes. One contains One Coin (kinda useless, eh?), the middle one contains a
 P-Down D-Up P Badge, and the last one contains a Jammin' Jelly, so get rid of
 a useless Item such as Maple Syrup or a Volt Shroom, etc. Once you get those
 Items, head east into the next area.

 In this area, head east and you'll some stairs. Ignore them and continue east
 to the east end of the area until you see a purple torch on the wall. Once
 you see that, head east into the next area (the torches indicate which way to
 go). In this next area, head east and follow the torch into the next area. In
 this area, head east and climb up the stairs. Once you do that, climb up the
 next set of stairs to the east (NOT the west) and then enter the door into
 the next area. In this area, head to the east set of stairs and follow the
 next torch into the next area. In this area, climb down all the stairs and go
 back to ground level. Once you're at ground level, head east and you'll see
 another torch. Follow it into the next area. In this area *sighs*, head up
 the stairs and then head to the east side and go into the next area. In this
 area, climb down the stairs and head back to ground level again. Once there,
 head east into the next area. This time around, there's no more "endless
 torture of torches and stairs", so rejoice! This time, there's a watery area
 Once you arrive here, head east and follow the path and save your game when
 you encounter the Save Point. When you encounter the Recovery Block, use it
 to recover your HP/FP. Once you reach the door leading to the next area,
 enter it. Follow the path east in this narrow hallway and defeat or avoid
 the Wizzerd here. Once you get to the next area, continue east through the
 next three areas while defeating or avoiding the enemies. There's a Save
 Point in the third hallway, so once you come across it, save your game, as
 you're about to be at a boss. Once you reach the end of the fourth hallway,
 enter the door into the next area. In this area, the boss will immediately
 ask you who you are. This is Gloomtail, Hooktail's sister. Gloomtail is HARD,
 having a high HP of 80, so read the Bosses section to see how to win.

 Once you win, a chest will be revealed so open it to get a Star Key. Once you
 get the Star Key, head out of this room and then head out of the large
 hallway leading to Gloomtail and make your way to the waterfall room (the
 room with the two Chain Chomps, the Recovery Block, and the Save Point). Once
 there, you'll notice a bluish-grayish Chain Chomp statue. Know what you do?
 Use Bobbery to blow up the Chain Chomp statue and you'll reveal a pipe once
 you do. Once you reveal the pipe after using Bobbery, head south and west
 across the bridge until you see a Chain Chomp enemy that you can fight. Fight
 it or ignore it, but be sure to use the nearby Recovery Block, head across
 the next bridge to the west and then have Bobbery blow up the next Chain
 Chomp statue. Another pipe will then be revealed. Once the second pipe is
 revealed, head down the pipe you just revealed and then you'll be in the
 background, so hit the nearby blue "!" switch with your Hammer. Once you hit
 it with your Hammer, exit the background via the pipe and then head east to
 the other pipe. Once you enter the pipe and arrive in the background again,
 hit the next nearby blue "!" switch to reveal another boat panel. Now, exit
 the background.

 Once you're in the foreground again, head west and cross the bridge. Then,
 head southwest and you'll see a boat panel. Get on it and turn paper boat
 mode and sail north to the next boat panel. Once you reach the next boat
 panel, turn back to normal by pressing "Y". Once you turn back to normal
 Mario, head north and enter the door leading to the next area. In this area,
 head up the long staircase, ignoring all the doors you come across. Once you
 reach the top of the room, your partner will tell you to look and you'll see
 something above you. Once you regain control, head back down the long
 staircase and then head to the door to the west (it's a room with two red "!"
 blocks floating in the air on each side). Once there, we're gonna have to
 solve a little puzzle. First off, head west and hit the red "!" block to the
 west side three times. Then, hit the block to the east two times. Doing this
 will cause a chest to be revealed. Open it to get a Palace Key. You have to
 collect seven more. Once you regain control, exit the room and enter the door
 directly to the southeast of the staircase (just east of the red door that
 lead to this room). Once you're in this new area, head east and you'll see an
 "!" pop up above Mario's head. This means something's here, right? Use
 Flurrie's wind gust and strip away the layer which has a chest containing a
 Palace Key behind it. Once you get this next Palace Key, exit this room and
 head to the room directly east of the staircase. Once there, head east and
 what looks like a dead end, really isn't. It's actually a wall, so go through
 the wall into the next area. In this area, hit the blue "!" block to reveal a
 chest in the previous area.

 Once its revealed, head back to the previous area and head up the staircase
 but don't go all the way up. Instead, just climb it till its first stop. Once
 the staircase reaches its first stop, head into the next area and head
 through the door directly to the west of the staircase. Once there, you'll
 see four bone-type enemies. A Dull Bone, a Red Bone, a Dry Bone, and a Dark
 Bone. Defeat weakest from strongest to successfully complete this puzzle.
 Take out the Dull Bone first. Then, take out the Red Bone next. Then the Dry
 Bone. Finally, take out the Dark Bones and a blue "!" block will be revealed.
 Once you hit the blue "!" block, a chest will be revealed containing another
 Palace Key. Grab it and exit the room. Now, enter the door to the south of
 the staircase. In this next room, hide in the shadows with Vivian. A blue "!"
 block with then appear. It will disappear once you reemerge, so you have to
 remember exactly where the blue block appeared when you hid in the shadows.
 Once you memorize the blocks location, hit the air in that location once you
 reemerge. This will cause another chest to appear. Open it to get another
 Palace Key.

 Now, head to the room directly to the north of where you are when you exit
 the room where you had to use Vivian. Once you're in this new area, head east
 and have Bobbery blow up the wall, thus revealing a passage. Enter the
 passage to the next area. In this area, open the chest to get yet another
 Palace Key. Once you get it, exit the room into the previous area. In this
 area, head to the room to the middle-north side of the room. Once there,
 you'll see four blocks. Two gray ones, and two red orange ones. Break the
 first gray one on the right side and then exit the room and head back
 downstairs in the previous area completely. Once there, enter the door to the
 middle-north like you did upstairs and then you'll be in an area linked with
 the area you were just in upstairs with the blocks. Anyway, once you're in
 this blocky area, break the two gray blocks on each side then exit the room
 and head back upstairs into the next block room. Once you're there again, hit
 the blue "!" block and open the chest it reveals for another Palace Key. Only
 one more to go. Now, hit the gray block to the west and exit this room and
 head back downstairs into the next block room.

 In this room, head west and hit the blue "!" block for another chest. Open
 this last chest to FINALLY get your last Palace Key. Once you get the final
 Palace Key, head all the way upstairs to where the device your partner told
 you about was. Once there, place your Star Key into the star pedestal (it has
 a star in the middle, so that's how you tell what  to place the Star Key
 into). Once you place the Star Key in the star pedestal, 8 key pillars will
 appear. Place all 8 of your Palace Keys inside of them and a rumbling sound
 will commence. The device above you will start moving and the hallway leading
 to Gloomtail makes stairs which leads into a new part of the palace. Once you
 regain control, exit this entire area completely and head back to the watery
 area. Once there, step on the boat panel and turn paper boat. Then, sail to
 the south to the next boat panel and turn back to normal. Now, use the
 Recovery Block and then save your game at the Save Point. Then, head east
 across the two bridges and you'll be ambushed by Beldam, Marilyn, and
 Doopliss. Once you beat Beldam, Marilyn, and Doopliss, save your game at the
 Save Point and use the Recovery Block if you didn't gain a level. Now, head
 east past the Shadow Sirens into the door just east of them. In this room,
 head down the newly revealed stairs and beat the nearby Dark Wizzerd. Then,
 use Spring Jump to hit the yellow "?" block to get a Thunder Rage. Now, head
 east and defeat the next Dark Wizzerd you come across. Once you defeat the
 two Dark Wizzerds, head all the way east and use Flurrie's wind gust to blow
 away the paper. Once you blow the paper away, enter the newly revealed
 passage and head up the stairs.

 Once you head up the stairs and you see a platform but can't reach it by
 jumping, switch to Yoshi and use him to fly over to the platform with the new
 area on it. Once you successfully fly over to the platform, head north into
 the next area. In this area, head east and line up Koops with the red "!"
 switch. Keep "X" mashed and head west up the stairs and then release Koops
 and head east onto the newly revealed platform. Once there, jump to the other
 side. Once there, head down the stairs and hit the block for a Repel Cape
 Badge. Now, head west and climb up the stairs and head into the next area. In
 this area, head west and climb up the stairs and hit the small green block
 you see. Then, head east down the stairs and exit this room. In this area
 again, head east up the stairs and get on the huge black and yellow block.
 The first thing you will notice is that the huge black and green block that
 was blocking your path is gone. Use Yoshi and have him fly across to the
 other side. Once you're at the other side, climb up the stairs and once you
 reach the top of them, head east and walk off the platform into a new area.

 In this area, hit the small purple block with your Hammer to cause the huge
 black and purple platform to the left of the other huge black platform to
 rise. Once you hit the small purple switch, quickly run to the huge black and
 purple platform to the left which is about to rise. Once you're on it, let it
 elevate until it can't anymore. Once it reaches the top, use Yoshi and fly
 over to the other side where a small red block awaits. Once there, hit it
 with your Hammer and then a huge black and red block will appear. Once it
 does, get to the left of the small red block and then launch Koops. Then,
 hold "X" to keep him into place. Once Koops is in his shell waiting to be
 fired, get on the huge black and red block and then release Koops. If done
 correctly, Koops will hit the small red block and you'll be floating down on
 the huge black and red block. Once the huge black and red block is elevating
 down with you on it, mash "Right" on the Control Stick and keep it mashed
 until you reach a new platform. Once you reach the "new platform" I was
 talking about, turn tube mode and roll under the thing above you and then
 quickly jump to the other side (you have to do it quickly otherwise you won't
 make it).

 Once you reach the other side, head east through the door into the next area.
 In this area, you'll notice two yellow lines on the platform you're on. Get
 on the yellow line to the north NOT the south. Then, perform Spring Jump and
 you should be on the pipe above you if done correctly. Once you're on the
 pipe, head east and then drop down to the platform in the middle of the room.
 Once you're on the platform in the middle of the room, get on the yellow line
 to the south NOT the north and then use Spring Jump and get on the next
 pipeline above you. Once there, head east and drop down onto the last
 platform in this area. Once there, head north into the next area.

 In this next area, head west and defeat the Phantom Ember and the Dark
 Wizzerd. If you don't want to, that's fine, but either way, from where you
 start, head up the stairs. Once you reach the top of the stairs, get to the
 edge and throw Bobbery off the edge and if done correctly (this could take a
 few tries), he'll hit a red "!" switch which will cause a platform above the
 switch to appear. Once it appears, quickly jump on the platform as it will
 dissipate fast. Once you're on the newly revealed platform, jump west to the
 other side. Now, head up the stairs and then once you reach the top, save
 your game at the nearby Save Point. Once you save your game, head all the way
 east and you'll see a farris wheel type thing. Jump east onto the yellow
 platform (its hard to see, because it's small and its color blends in with
 the farris wheel, thus making it difficult to see). Once you jump on the
 small yellow platform on the farris wheel, jump right and if done correctly,
 you'll reach another small yellow platform.

 Once you get on the platform, you'll see a key. Use Koops to get it. Once you
 get this next Palace Key (gee, haven't we had enough of those?), head off of
 the platform on the farris wheel and then you'll be back onto the platform
 where the Chain Chomp was in this room. Head west up the stairs and unlock
 the door using your newly obtained Palace Key. Once you unlock the door, save
 your game and enter the now unlocked door. In this area, use Spring Jump to
 break the nearby yellow "?" block. A Life Shroom will be revealed, so
 DEFEINITELY grab it and then head west up the stairs. Once you head up the
 stairs, continue west up the next set of stairs and then turn tube mode and
 jump across the stairs into the next part of the area. Once there, head west
 and you'll see several red "!" blocks. I've made a pretty little map here to
 guide you. Here it is:






 Map Key:

 * (yellow stars above the red "!" block)
 [ ! ] (red "!" block)




  HIT           HIT    HIT           HIT
   *      *      *      *      *      *      *
 [ ! ]  [ ! ]  [ ! ]  [ ! ]  [ ! ]  [ ! ]  [ ! ]


 There. That's what you do. Once you successfully hit all the blocks, exit
 this room completely. In the previous area, save your game and head east from
 the Save Point and jump back onto the small yellow platform on the farris
 wheel. It is spinning this time (the farris wheel is), so be careful! Once
 you get on the small yellow platform, wait until it reaches the platform
 above the platform where you got the Palace Key at. Once it reaches there,
 quickly jump to the unvisited platform and then once you're on it, head east
 into the next area. In this area, use Flurrie to blow away the huge thing you
 see. You'll reveal a huge gray block once you fully blow away the obstacle.
 Break the block by using the "Ultra Hammer" technique (the technique you used
 to break into Grubba's office in Glitzville). Once the block is broken, an
 "X" square will be revealed, so butt stomp it and you'll drop down into a new
 area. In this area, hit the yellow "?" block to get 1 Coin. Once you hit it,
 jump on it after getting the Coin and then jump again once you're on it to
 reveal another block. Once the block is revealed, a Point Swap drops out of
 it. This isn't useful, but grab it if you want it. Anyway, once you get the
 Point Swap thingie done, head south from the yellow spring into the next
 area. In this area, head east and get on the small batch of carpet to the
 east (if you fall off, don't worry, you'll start from the entrance of this
 room).

 Once you're on it, follow the small carpet path and once you reach the
 platform with the door, head east through the door into the next area. In
 this area, head east and get on the very edge of the airplane panel and fly
 east to the platform leading to the next area. There's also a Life Shroom and
 a Thunder Rage in here, so e-mail me to see how to get them. Once you make it
 to the platform leading to the next area, head north into the next area. In
 this next area, head all the way west to the red "!" block and defeat or
 avoid the Chain Chomp along the way. Once you reach the red "!" block, hit it
 and then QUICKLY get on Yoshi and head east up the stairs and then west up
 the  next set of the stairs and then once you climb the set of stairs that
 you just climbed up fully, fly to the platform to the west QUICKLY before it
 dissipates.  Once you reach the other side where the chest is, open it to get
 a Palace Key. This is the last Palace Key in the Palace of Shadow, so no more
 key hunting. Whew! Once you get the Palace Key, exit this room completely.
 Once outside the room, head east and drop down the platform and head all the
 way west to the yellow spring, ignoring or defeating the Phantom  Embers.
 Once there, jump on the yellow spring and push "Up" on the Control Stick and
 you'll be back on the platform with the airplane panel. Once there, step on
 the very edge of the airplane panel and fly all the way east to the platform
 with the locked door on it (its at the very east end of the room and could
 take a few tries to get to depending on how good you are at flying). Once
 there, unlock the door with the Palace Key and enter the door into the next
 area.

 In this area, head east through the hallway until you see a Recovery Block
 and a Save Point. Once you see those two things, use the Recovery Block to
 recover, and then save your game at the nearby Save Point. Now, switch to
 Vivian and head into the door to your south leading into the next area. To
 the room with Grodus himself. Once there, head east up the stairs and then
 Grodus will laugh and his music will start playing. Once the cutscene is
 over, you'll enter combat against Grodus, so look at the Bosses section to
 see how to win. Once you defeat Grodus, he'll reveal Peach and Peach will be
 surprised to see Mario. Grodus then zaps Mario and his partner twice. Then,
 before he can deliver the final blow, Bowser comes crashing down on Grodus's
 head. You'll have to fight Bowser and Kammy Koopa (this is why I told you to
 have 80 Star Points, because you don't get to heal before these goons), so
 read the Bosses section to see how to win this semi-final fight. Once you
 win, head through the door into the next area. In this next area, hit the
 yellow "?" block to get an Ultra Shroom. Then, use the Recovery Block to
 heal. Then, head east down the stairs and save your game. Finally, continue
 east into the door leading to the final boss. After the long cutscene, you'll
 engage into combat with the Shadow Queen, the final boss of the game. Read
 the Bosses section to see how to win. Once you win, enjoy the ending.
 Congratulations! You've just beaten Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door!

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


 Strategy: To win this fight, have Mario use his Hammer ability on
           the Tentacles to damage them 2 if you successfully perform
           the attack. Have Goombella use Headbonk on the Tentacles
           to hurt them 2 if you double jump. Do this on the Tentacles
           until you kill them. I'll tell you another thing that is not
           important but it just happens in this fight. Once you kill a
           Tentacle, Blooper will ask you if you want to eat them, tell
           him whatever you want. Anyway, once the two Tentacles die,
           Blooper will be lying on the ground, so now's your chance to
           let in all the hits. Have Mario use Power Smash (I hope you
           equipped the Badge), to deal significant damage. Have
           Goombella, use Headbonk. When he regenerates his Tentacles,
           repeat the same process you did on the Tentacles at the
           start of this fight. Then, once you kill them, repeat the same
           process on Blooper as you did a moment ago and keep doing this
           same process and you should win this fight in no time.

 |              Hooktail                                          |
 |                                                                |
 |       Location: Hooktail's Castle                              |
 |       Attack: 5                                                |
 |       Defense: 1                                               |
 |       HP: 20                                                   |
 |       Strengths: N/A                                           |
 |       Weaknesses: Attack FX R                                  |
 ------------------------------------------------------------------


 Strategy: Defeating Hooktail, the first real boss of the game, is not
           hard at all if you have the Attack FX R Badge which makes
           Hooktail become very vulnerable, thus allowing you to attack
           him alot more than you would normally without the Badge.
           Anyway, if you don't have the Badge, you'll have a little
           bit tougher time beating him, so I hope you have it. First
           off, have Mario use Power Smash on Hooktail. Then, he'll
           get sick because of the sound the Badge makes which sounds
           like a cricket. Yes, that's right, this Boss Strategy is
           going by Hooktail assuming you have the Attack FX R Badge.
           Once Hooktail gets sick and you regain control, have Koops
           use Shell Toss, or if you have Koops in front of Mario and
           its Mario's turn, have him use Power Smash. Once you hit
           Hooktail again, he'll attack you with fire breath, so try
           and do the best you can do reduce the damage by pressing A.
           After that, have Mario use Power Smash again and then
           Hooktail will get even sicker. Now, attack the same way
           you've been doing with Shell Toss, Power Smash. Also, keep
           reducing the damage of Hooktail's attacks. Once you damage
           Hooktail enough, he'll say that he gives up and say please.
           Then he'll offer you Coins so say no to that. Then, he'll
           offer you to sniff his feet, also say no to this. Finally,
           he'll offer you a rare Badge, so say no to this as well.
           If you give in to one of his offers, Hooktail will damage
           you 5 which is bad, so don't give in. Anyway, wether you
           decline his offers or if you give in to them, Hooktail
           will eat the crowd and he'll gain 10 HP! Ouch! Okay, so
           this is the final phase of this fight and the way to win
           is by using Shell Toss, and Power Smash. If you run out
           of FP, use Normal Smash instead. Once you take 10 HP off
           of Hooktail, you'll defeat him.

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


 Strategy: The fight against the Shadow Sirens isn't too hard, but
           Marilyn's attack is a bit high simply because you're
           gonna get hit by all three Shadow Sirens one attack at
           a time in this fight, making this fight a bit difficult.
           Use Earth Tremor if you have enough SP, but if not, then
           don't bother Appealing to get enough SP, becuase it will
           make this fight a LOT more difficult. If you don't have
           enough SP, have Mario attack Vivian with Normal Hammer
           or with Power Smash, or use your jump commands if you
           like. If you use your jump commands, I strongly recommend
           using Power Bounce, as this will damage Vivian alot.
           Have Koops use Shell Toss on Vivian. I don't recommend
           using Power Shell, because even though it would deal some
           good damage to all the Shadow Sirens, it would take alot
           of your FP, which you need for Power Smash, or Power
           Bounce. Keep doing this and reduce the damage given to
           you when the Shadow Sirens attack you. Keep doing this
           until Vivian is defeated. Then, concentrate all your
           attacks on Marilyn, as she's next in line. Use the same
           attack pattern on Marilyn as you did on Vivian to defeat
           her and remember to reduce the damage given by pressing A.
           Once you defeat Marilyn, use the same attack pattern on
           Beldam, and reduce the damage given to you by her as well.
           Do this until you win, and you should win in no time.


 Tip: Use the Volt Shroom you got before you entered the pipe to go
      to Flurrie's house (use it on Mario) to make the Shadow Sirens
      get hurt when they attack you with physical attacks. Also, I
      forgot to mention above in the Boss Strategy against these
      sisters, they will all three use magic attacks in a row at you.
      For example, Vivian will use magic on Mario and his partner
      which will hurt 1 on Mario and 1 on his partner. Then, Marilyn
      will attack you with magic that will hurt 2 on Mario and his
      partner. Finally, Beldam will use her deadly magic and hurt
      3 on Mario and his partner, which makes this battle a bit tough,
      so be sure to use Sweet Treat and lots of Mushrooms, because
      if you don't, this battle could mean Game Over for you!

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


 Strategy: Defeating Magnus Von Grapple isn't very hard at all, but
           if you don't defeat his rocket arms when he takes them off
           of his machine, it can be really hard. First off, have Mario
           use Power Bounce to cause significant damage. Then, have
           Flurrie use Body Slam. Also, Power Punch works very well
           here, so be sure to use that (hope you haven't used that
           already) on Mario and not his partner, as its useless to
           use it on Flurrie. Magnus Von Grapple's attacks aren't
           very strong, except his rocket arms if you don't kill them,
           as they can hurt you 4, so be sure to defeat his rocket
           arms. Keep using Power Bounce with Mario and use Body Slam
           with Flurrie and use Sweet Treat if needed and use Honey
           Syrups to heal your FP, as you'll need FP to use Power Bounce
           which is essential to winning this fight. Keep repeating
           this process and you'll easily win in a few minutes.

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


 Strategy: Defeating Bowser (even though he ambushed you) isn't very
           hard. Sure, he can hurt you some with his fire breath and
           his attacks if you aren't careful and don't reduce, he is
           still a really easy adversary. Anyway, have Mario use Power
           Bounce and have Yoshi use Gulp. Keep doing this and heal
           your FP when needed until you win. Switch Yoshi if he gets
           low on HP, as he dies easy, so no need to waste a Super
           Shroom on him. If you have Flurrie instead of Yoshi, I'm
           not sure how she'll do, as I never used her for Bowser but
           I'd say switch her. Koops is good for this fight, so use
           him if you have him. Goombella, as usual, is overall useless.
           Be sure to reduce the damage given by Bowser's attacks,
           otherwise it might be hard to win. Keep doing this attack
           pattern and heal with Sweet Treat when needed and you'll win
           in no time.

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


 Strategy: Defeating Macho Grubba is not as hard as it seems, despite his
           high HP. To win, have Mario use Power Smash and have Yoshi use
           Gulp. Take note that Grubba will use attacks that boost his
           own attack, defense, or evade. He usually boosts his attack and
           defense, making him a bit harder to beat. However, the con to
           this (this con is good) is that these affects only last for 3
           turns each. To indicate that Grubba's boosts have worn off, you
           will see him jump which means that the stats boosts have worn
           off. Take note if his defense is increased by his boost, you
           can't really damage him as much as needed, so just use "Defend"
           until the effect wears off. Keep attacking after the defense
           boost wears off. Anyway, continue using Power Smash/Gulp and
           heal with Sweet Treat or any Items you have when needed and be
           sure to keep your HP high throughout the fight, as you'll need
           to to be sure of victory. Keep doing this and be sure to attack
           Grubba only after his defense affect has worn off and you
           should win in no time.

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


 Strategy: Okay, this first fight against Doopliss isn't too hard, or so
           it shouldn't be. First off, have Mario use Power Smash or
           Power Bounce, and if you have a Power Punch, be sure to use
           that, because it makes this fight alot easier. Also, if you
           have Yoshi in your party (which should), then have him use
           Gulp. If you have Flurrie in your party, have her use Body
           Slam, or Lip Lock if you got your characters powered up. If
           you have an HP Drain, use that as well. If you have Koops in
           your party, have him use Shell Toss or Power Shell. Finally,
           if you have Goombella in your party, use Headbonk or use
           Multibonk. Basically, this is your attack pattern throughout
           the entire battle, so use it and use Sweet Treat to heal when
           needed. Also, use some attack Items if you have any. Doopliss
           doesn't really have a powerful attack threat, but it just
           depends on your HP. He only has 4 Attack Power, so you
           shouldn't have a hard time beating him. Take note, however,
           when Doopliss is nearly defeated, he'll turn into a purple-
           shadowlike Mario, and this is where the harder part begins.
           When Doopliss is in this purplish-shadow form, he'll mimic
           your Hammer attacks and your jump attacks, so watch out!
           Be sure to heal often if needed. Keep doing this throughout
           this entire battle and don't forget to use Sweet Treat when
           needed to heal your HP/FP, and you'll win this battle in no
           time.

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


 Strategy: Doopliss has Goombella, Koops, Flurrie, and Yoshi accompanying
           him in this fight, so lets make him pay, shall we? First off,
           don't worry about attacking Goombella, as it is useless. If
           you attack Goombella, this fight could become a bit difficult.
           Instead, have Mario attack Doopliss with Power Smash or Power
           Bounce and be careful since Vivian isn't with you at this
           present moment. Once you attack Doopliss twice, Vivian will
           come out of the shadows and say that she has decided to fight
           alongside Mario. Now that you have Vivian with you, have her
           use Shade Fist, and have Mario continue to use Power Smash or
           Power Bounce. Keep doing this and heal with Sweet Treat when
           and if needed, and remember, IGNORE attacking Goombella. If
           you keep this attack pattern up and heal if needed, you'll
           win in no time.

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


 Strategy: Defeating Cortez is hard. First off, as I said above in the Boss
           Battle box, he doesn't have just 20 HP. He has 20 HP EACH FORM!
           Cortez has three forms that you'll have to beat in order to win
           this fight. The first form consists of two Bone Piles and the head
           of Cortez. I don't suggest attacking the Bone Piles. Instead, I
           suggest attacking the head itself. In this form, Cortez will try to
           pierece you with all four weapons, or with just simply one of them.
           To win this part of the fight, attack Cortez' head with Power
           Bounce. Don't worry about using Art Attack just yet. Make sure you
           have Vivian in your party, and not Bobbery, as she comes in handy
           here with her Veil ability. If you don't have Vivian, make sure you
           switch her in, as you'll need to. Anyway, have Mario use Power
           Bounce on Cortez' head, ignoring the two Bone Piles accompanying
           him. Have Vivian use Shade Fist and Veil sometimes to avoid taking
           damage from Cortez' attacks, as they can overwhelm you after awhile
           if you don't use Veil at all. I took 11 damage from this first
           form, as I didn't use Veil, so please don't make the same mistake.
           Anyway, keep doing this attack pattern on Cortez' head, and heal
           when needed with a Super Shroom if you have one. If not, just use
           Sweet Treat, but if you don't have enough SP to use THAT and Art
           Attack, just forget it and switch your partner in front, or use
           Superguard. Once you beat this form of Cortez, phase two of this
           fight will begin. Attack Cortez with Power Bounce and Shade Fist.
           Then Cortez will boost his Attack Power and he'll attack you to
           cause 4 damage, so be sure to Superguard. Keep repeating this and
           heal when and if necessary and once you beat the second form of
           Cortez, he will show off his last form. Phase three now begins and
           it is HARD unless you use a certain party member, as Cortez will
           attack you FIVE time in a row before you get to attack him again.
           This makes this battle EXTREMELY HARD, so do what I say -- use the
           "certain" party member which is Flurrie. Once you switch in
           Flurrie, have her use Gale Force and she'll blow away all the
           weapons if you use Gale Force good enough. If you execute it badly,
           I don't know if she'll blow them all away, as I didn't execute it
           badly. Anyway, once you blow away all the weapons, keep attacking
           Cortez with Power Bounce and heal your FP when needed.

           Once you damage him enough, Cortez will eat the audience and gain
           49 HP back! THIS is where Art Attack comes in. Use Art Attack and
           then switch Flurrie out and use Bobbery and have him use Bomb Squad
           every round. Keep using Power Bounce/Bomb Squad and heal your FP
           when if needed. Make sure Bomb Squad is aimed at Cortez and not
           anywhere else on the stage. Keep doing Power Bounce/Bomb Squad
           and heal if needed until you beat Cortez.

 Strategy: To defeat Lord Crump for the third time, have Mario use Power
           Bounce and have Bobbery use Bomb Squad and make sure you aim it at
           Lord Crump and not anywhere else. Keep repeating this and once you
           damage Lord Crump enough (the bombs from the Bomb Squad attack
           should do it), he'll revert to another attack pattern. The X-Nauts
           that are accompanying Lord Crump will be on the ceiling like the
           Rawk Hawk was in Glitzville. Don't attack the X-Nauts, as you don't
           have to. Instead, Appeal for Art Attack while Superguarding every
           few turns. Once you have enough SP for Art Attack, attack Lord
           Crump with Power Smash and have Bobbery use Bomb. Keep doing this
           and heal if needed, but be sure to Superguard every time Crump
           attacks you. Keep doing this and once you damage Lord Crump enough,
           he'll switch to his last attack pattern. Phase three now begins. To
           win this phase, attack Crump (NOT THE X-Nauts), with Power Bounce
           and switch to Yoshi and have him use Ground Pound on Crump. Keep
           doing this and Superguard EVERY TIME Crump attacks, as he'll hurt
           you 5 on Mario and his ally unless you have a defense-boosting
           Badge. Keep doing this and heal when necessary until you beat Lord
           Crump.

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

 Strategy: First off, use Superguard everytime this thing attacks you, as it
           will deal out a good bit of damage here. Anyway, to start off, take
           out all three of the Smorg Miamas, as the boss itself is
           invincible. Once you take out the three Smorg Miamas, concentrate
           all of your attacks on Smorg (I recommend using Spring Jump here,
           as it deals out some massive damage). After Mario attacks, have
           Bobbery use Bomb. Of course, if you have Vivian, she works just as
           well with Fiery Jinx. After two turns of relentless assault, the
           Smorg will regenerate the the Smorg Miamas. Here we go again. This
           time, they change into a hook thing and their Attack Power is
           boosted, so be careful! Repeat the same attack process (the Smorg
           will reform the Smorg Miamas after every two turns, take note of
           that.) and heal with Sweet Feast when needed (or with Items; Whacka
           Bumps perferably) and after a while, Smorgie here will fall.

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

 Strategy: Okay, this is the FINAL fight with Lord Crump, and it is HARD!
           First off, be sure to save ALL of your SP, as you'll need it! To
           start this battle off, (switch to Vivian, as this fight is
           IMPOSSIBLE withou her) use Mario's Power Smash and Vivian's Fiery
           Jinx every turn. Magnus's attacks are VERY POWERFUL, and they can
           hurt you A LOT! One of Magnus's attacks is him hitting with you
           with his drill which hurts you damage on Mario and his partner
           unless you have a Defense-boosting Badge. Magnus also has other
           attacks. One of which he takes off his two arms like he did in
           the Great Tree, only this time, they don't just explode after
           awhile if you don't kill them, they STAY alive until you DO kill
           them. Use Fiery Jinx with Vivian (switch her in front if she's in
           the back), to INSTANTALY kill Grapple's two arms. Grapple also has
           another attack which is sucking up the audience like Hooktail did.
           Only he is MUCH more powerful than Hooktail. He will hurt you about
           30 damage (estimation, but it is quite close) and he will instantly
           kill you, so lets hope you have your partner in front of Mario. If
           Mario dies, hope you have a Life Shroom, or you'll get a Game Over.
           Magnus can ingest the crowd more than once. Keep repeating this and
           heal with Sweet Feast when needed (this is why I told you to save
           your SP) and heal with Items when you run out of SP (I recommend
           your Ultra Shroom if you haven't used it already until you win.

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

 Strategy: First of all, make SURE that you have Vivian in your party, or be
           prepared for an almost, if not, IMPOSSIBLE fight. To start this
           battle off, make sure that you enough SP to perform Supernova,
           as if you don't, you're screwed. Anyway, switch Vivian in front
           of you. Then, have her use Veil (this sounds stupid, I know, but
           do it, as it's basically the only way to win without much trouble).
           Then, have Mario use any strong attack he has, (not jumps, though,
           as they horribly suck) such as Power Smash (I recommend Power
           Smash). Keep doing this every turn and when Gloomtail gets hurt
           enough, she'll say a few things and then she'll change her attack
           pattern I guess you could say. Once Gloomtail talks for the first
           time after taking enough damage, pummel her with the Veil/Power
           Smash combo, being sure to heal when necessary (perferably with
           Ultra Shrooms). Once you damage Gloomtail enough again, she'll
           talk again and show you her "true power". When she gets into her
           true state which is when she says she'll show you her "true power",
           use Veil IMMEDIATELY because she's about to use her ultimate
           attack...Megabreath which will deal out 15 damage to Mario and his
           partner. Once Gloomtail uses Megabreath (she'll use it more than
           once during the battle, so be very careful and be sure to use Veil
           when she goes to do it; she'll glow with her attack boosted when
           she's going to do it), let out the Veil/Power Smash combination
           and heal when necessary until she's defeated. Note: Life Shrooms
           will come in handy here.

 |       Weaknesses: (Doopliss) N/A                               |
 ------------------------------------------------------------------

 Strategy: This fight against the Shadow Sirens isn't easy Doopliss is
           Vivian's replacement fighter. Anyway, I'll tell you the Shadow
           Sirens' attacks, first of all. For starters, Beldam has status-
           affecting spells which can really hurt your group if you aren't
           careful. She also uses an ice attack which can freeze you, so be
           careful of that also. First of all, focus all of your attacks on
           Beldam. Once you defeat her, go after Marilyn, the ten ton truck.
           Marilyn doesn't really have any powerful attacks, except her attack
           boost which she can hurt up to 20 damage on Mario AND his partner
           with. That's more than Gloomtail's Megabreath hurt! Be careful when
           fighting Marilyn. Heal with Sweet Feast when necessary. Once you
           take out Marilyn, focus all of your attacks on Doopliss. Doopliss
           doesn't have any powerful attacks at all, he'll just change into
           whatever partner you have with you (e.g. if you have Vivian, he'll
           turn Vivian). He won't use any specials such as Fiery Jinx against
           you, though, so there's some good news. Vivian is useful for this
           fight with her Fiery Jinx, so be sure to have her in before you
           start this fight. Keep repeating this and heal with Sweet Feast or
           something else when necessary until you win.

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

 Strategy: Lets hope you have 80 Star Points at least, so that you can level
           up immediately after the fight with Grodus, because you'll have to
           fight Bowser and Kammy Koopa RIGHT after this. You won't get a
           Recovery Block, so that's why you need to level up. Anyway, to
           defeat Grodus, leader of the X-Nauts, you need to take note that
           Grodus has Grodus X's surrounding him after he summons them. If he
           has four of these around him, he's invincible, so be sure to
           destroy these things at all costs. First off, switch Vivian in
           front of Mario and have her use Fiery Jinx as soon as Grodus
           summons the Grodus X's (have her use it period to deal 5 damage to
           Grodus). Once the Grodus X's are destroyed, have Mario use Power
           Smash or Spring Jump to cause some nice damage here. Grodus will
           often regenerate the Grodus X's, so continue to use Fiery Jinx and
           heal with Sweet Feast or some other healing Item when needed (you
           should only need to heal your FP mainly, but if you get low on HP,
           heal your HP as well). Keep this up and heal when needed until you 
           win.

 -----------------------------------------------------------------|

 Strategy: To win this fight against Bowser and Kammy Koopa, have Mario use
           Spring Jump on Kammy Koopa (that's right, we're focusing all of our
           attacks on Kammy Koopa, as she has some attacks that will boost
           Bowser's stats). Then, use Vivian's Fiery Jinx which will damage
           both Bowser AND Kammy Koopa. Keep doing this and heal with Sweet
           Feast or any other powerful healing Item when needed until you take
           out Kammy Koopa. Once you take her out, it's you and Bowser, Mario
           style! Concentrate all of your most powerful attacks on Bowser while
           Vivian uses Veil or Fiery Jinx (be sure to use Fiery Jinx ALOT, but
           be sure to Veil also). Keep doing this and heal when needed until
           you win. Bowser has some powerful attacks such as his fire breath,
           so be extra careful when fighting these goons. Bowser also turns big
           which poses a threat as well, because that makes his attack rise.
           Use Superguard ALOT on this fight. Keep doing this until you win.

 Strategy: The first form of the Shadow Queen isn't exactly her true form.
           Instead, you have to fight Princess Peach possessed by the Shadow
           Queen. In this first part of the battle, just keep attacking the
           Shadow Queen until she enters into her "true form" which is a
           purple-swirly like thing. Your objective in this part of the fight
           is to keep attacking the Shadow Queen while staying alive until she
           gets into the "purple-swirly" form. Once she's in her true form,
           phase two begins. This is the real battle. There's no winning this
           part. Just keep attacking (don't use your FP, just use Normal
           Hammer and something with your partner that doesn't cost FP) while
           staying alive until you can damage her. That's right, this part of
           the battle was unwinnable because she was invincible. Note: DO NOT
           USE SUPERNOVA in the part where she's in invincible, as that will
           hurt her, and that will make the game freeze up, as you are not
           intended to hurt her. Anyway, once she assumes her "true form"
           where you can actually damage her, you'll have to take off 150 HP,
           so be prepared for a long and hard fight! To start off, switch
           Vivian in front. Then, have her use Fiery Jinx. Then, have Mario
           use Supernova. Then, when the roulette thing happens (the thing
           with the Mushrooms, Flowers, Stars, Shine Sprites, and Poisonus
           Mushrooms), you'll automatically (no matter what), you'll get
           three Shine Sprites, thus refilling your HP, FP, and SP.Once your
           HP/FP/SP is refilled by the Shine Sprite combo, throw in another
           Supernova.Once you use Supernova again, have Vivian use Fiery Jinx
           and have Mario use Spring Jump (on the Shadow Queen, NOT her
           hands). Keep repeating this and heal when necessary with Ultra
           Shrooms until you win. The Shadow Queen has some powerful and
           annoying attacks,so be very careful on this final boss. 

           The Shadow Queen battle will last a long time, as you have to take
           off a whole 150 HP, so be prepared to have lots of Life Shrooms,
           Ultra Shrooms, and Jammin' Jellies in for this battle, as you'll
           need them! Note: If you have upgraded Bobbery to ultra rank, (see 
           Side Quests section for details) he has a move that's really good
           for the Shadow Queen (don't remember the name). Anyway, that about
           wraps it up for the Shadow Queen.

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

 Strategy: Bonetail is an optional boss located in the Pit of 100 Trials on
           the 100th floor. He isn't really worth all the time and effort it
           takes to get to him, either, as you really don't win an important
           Badge from him. Anyway, the fight with Bonetail is EXTREMELY HARD
           and EXTREMELY tedious, so be VERY careful when facing this foe!
           With a massive 200 HP, 8 Attack Power, and 2 Defense Power, this
           boss is more than your ordinary boss. Be sure to have LOTS of
           healing Items  and LOTS of Life Shrooms. The upgraded Item Sack
           is essential for beating Bonetail. Anyway, to win this fight,
           switch Mario in front ONLY if you have Life Shrooms. If not, then
           it will be VERY hard to defeat Bonetail. Use Power Lift alot to
           raise your Attack and Defense. Make sure you raise it alot. Once
           you've raised your Attack and Defense, let out your strongest
           attacks on Bonetail. Heal with Sweet Feast and Ultra Shrooms when
           necessary. Also use Jammin' Jellies to heal up your FP. Keep doing
           this and let out your strongest attacks after using Power Lift alot
           until you win.

           Here is a new strategy I found from Kirby021591 (He e-mailed it to
           me, and thus he'll be credited):

 Mainly, what badges you use make a huge difference.  Use these:
 
                                     Jumpman
                                  P-Up, D-Down
                                  Damage Dodge
                                 Damage Dodge P
                                Pretty Lucky x 2
                                  Happy Heart
                                  Power Bounce
                                    HP Plus
                                 All or Nothing
                                  Lucky Start
                                   Power Plus
                                   Lucky Day
                                  Quick Change

 Here's what I wrote about Bonetail aside from badges:
 
 "What, you didn't think there wouldn't be a boss, did you?  Well, I'll say
 that if you can beat this beast you are truly a champion.  This is very easily
 the toughest boss in the game.  Just look at its stats!  By tattling on it you
 discover that it has 200 HP, 8 attack, and 2 defense.  *Gulp*.  Fortunately
 for you, though, there is a badge combination that will teach Hooktail's
 oldest brother a lesson.  Disregarding defense, the goal in beating this
 baddie is purely by brute force.  If you don't do it that way, the battle will
 be drawn out and with his tremendous attack power you'll be crushed.  The
 first 99 levels shouldn't have forced you to use all your Ultra Shrooms.  The
 endurance strategy is simple - enter with about ten Ultra Shrooms and you can
 finish off Bonetail in a very long fight, always preventing your demise with
 another Ultra Shroom. But if you're not into that, let's cover the real way to
 beat this boss.

 To whittle down Bonetail's HP you need a strong attack to start with.  If you
 use the recommended badge combo, Power Bounce will be radically strong.  If
 you want you can use Power Lift before using it to strengthen the onslaught.
 If you do a regular Power Bounce only five times with the badges, you'll deal
 him 15 damage.  By that logic, it would take you around 13 turns to finish
 him.  Of course it will be less, since you have your partner.  Since every
 Power Bounce costs 3 FP, it should take you 39 FP to finish him.  You can
 reduce the length of this with more than five jumps per Power Bounce, or with
 your partner.  Keep your partner in front to take the claw attacks.  Use Boo's
 Sheet (ON MARIO) if you're low on health.

 Also, always remember to heal Mario when his HP drops to 10 or lower.  The
 best heal method is obviously the Ultra Shroom, but if you're desperate, use
 other recovery items as last resorts.  Now to cover what Bonetail does.  Also,
 don't waste a turn tattling because you can get the tattle in Frankly's
 garbage can later.  Bonetail is a really easy attacker; defending is a piece
 of cake.  For his breath, press A as soon as it hits you, and the claw is the
 same.  If you're using a partner, I'd recommend Bobbery.  With forty HP, he's
 an excellent shield, as cruel as that may sound.  When he's out switch to
 Flurrie (Lip Lock is a good move to use).  In truth, Bonetail is not nearly as
 hard as he sounds.  I used three of my Life Shrooms, but not a single Ultra
 Shroom.  When he kicks the bucket (he really just flips over) he spits out a
 treasure chest like his brothers.  Inside is Return Postage, the final badge,
 the last frontier.  When you win, be a gracious winner and leave Bonetail on
 his back begging for mercy. With that badge combo, who couldn't beat Bonetail?
 The pipe to the surface is behind his prone body."

 Description: These flowers are rare and first appear in Twilight Trail.
              These enemies are tough, as they run away so fast from

 Description: Bristle is found in the Shhwonk Fortress, and isn't very
              hard to defeat. He's a bit difficult, however, because if

 Bowser
 Location: Glitz Pit
 Attack: 3/7
 Defense: 1/2
 HP: 30/70
 Description: Bowser is Mario's enemy like we've seen in our days.
              Bowser has appeared in Mario games so many times, it
              is hard to count them all. He's back in Paper Mario:
              The Thousand Year Door, and he appears in Glitzville
              in the Glitz Pit to fight Mario. He is kinda tough,

 HP: 7
 Description: Just attack these enemies with your Hammer or use
              jumps on them to defeat them. They aren't that tough,

              This one isn't easy, either. It'll keep firing
              Bombshell Bills at you if you can't defeat it, so make
              sure you're ready to fight this enemy before you fight
              it!

 Attack: 4
 Defense: 1
 HP: 2
 Description: These guys aren't too hard, having only 2 HP. Just
              defeat them before they defeat you! Because you see,
              they have 4 Attack, which means these guys could
              easily defeat you if you don't have much HP, or if
              you let them!


 Bombshell Bill
 Location: Palace of Shadow
 Attack: 6
 Defense: 2
 HP: 3
 Description: These guys have large amounts of attack power,
              making them hard to defeat if you don't defeat
              them fast enough.

 Cleft

 Dark Puff
 Location: Boggly Woods
 Attack: 2
 Defense: 0
 HP: 3
 Description: Dark Puffs aren't hard to defeat, just jump
              on them to defeat them. Beware, however,
              because if you attack Dark Puffs when they
              are electrically charged, because if you do,
              you're the one who'll take damage.


 Dark Koopatrol
 Location: Glitz Pit
 Attack: 5
 Defense: 2
 HP: 25
 Description: This guy is extremely tough, having 25 HP, 5
              Attack Power, and 2 Defense Power. You also
              must fight this guy alot of times before you
              can even go to the Rawk Hawk, so this makes
              battles with Dark Koopatrol very tedious.


 Dark Craw
 Location: Glitz Pit
 Attack: 6
 Defense: 0
 HP: 20
 Description: Dark Craw is located in Glitzville in the Glitz
              Pit fighting arena. These guys are pretty tough,

 Attack: 4
 Defense: 0
 HP: 40
 Description: Doopliss is a ghost who lives in Creepy Steeple
              which is located in Twilight Town. When Mario
              defeats him, Doopliss takes control of Mario's
              name and body. Mario then must get them back,
              as Doopliss's Mario form is fooling Mario's
              partners into thinking Doopliss himself is
              Mario, and that means that they're obeying
              Doopliss!


 Dark Bristle
 Location: Pit of 100 Trials
 Attack: 8
 Defense: 4
 HP: 8
 Description: Dark Bristles are hard, because of their high
              Attack Power. You can't attack them with your
              Hammer, as their spikes sticking out of their
              sides will damage you. You can't jump on them
              either, so the only way to defeat these guys
              is Quake Hammer, Earth Tremor, or Items that
              damage enemies.


 Dark Lakitu
 Location: Pit of 100 Trials
 Attack: 5
 Defense: 0
 HP: 13
 Description: These guys are annoying, because they will
              sometimes throw pipes at you which turn
              into Sky-Blue Spinies.


 Dark Paratroopa
 Location: Pit of 100 Trials
 Attack: 4
 Defense: 2
 HP: 8
 Description: Dark Paratroopas are not that hard to beat,
              as they really have no potential Attack
              Power threats, as their Attack Power is
              only 4. Use jumps and once they are on
              the ground, attack them all out with
              your best attacks. This is an easy way to
              defeat them without having to waste Items.


 Dark Koopa
 Location: Pit of 100 Trials
 Attack: 4
 Defense: 2
 HP: 8
 Description: This enemy is the same as Koopa Troopas.
              Not too hard to defeat, its just a bit
              stronger than normal Koopa Troopas.


 Dark Bones
 Location: Pit of 100 Trials
 Attack: 5
 Defense: 2
 HP: 20
 Description: This guy is a harder version of the
              Dull Bones you've encountered. Beat
              them the same way, but here's a

 Defense: 0
 HP: 3

              version of Paper Mario. He is
              not too hard if you defeat him
              fast enough, which shouldn't be
              too hard, as he only has 3 HP.
              However, the only thing you should
              worry about, is Fuzzies ability to
              drain 1 HP from you and gain it for
              their own. In the Shhwonk Fortress,
              this makes fighting Fuzzies a pain

 Location: Glitz Pit
 Attack: 4
 Defense: 0

 Green Fuzzy
 Location: Keelhaul Key
 Attack: 3
 Defense: 0
 HP: 5

              there's another trouble, which is, he
              does like the normal Fuzzy, and drains

              be a problem in defeating, especially

              20 HP and 5 Attack Power. Hooktail

              they have 8 Attack Power, and they poison
              you. When this cloud is charged with poison,
              don't jump on it because if you do, you'll
              get poisoned.


 Red Bones
 Location: Hooktail's Castle
 Attack: 3
 Defense: 1
 HP: 5
 Description: Red Bones are located in Hooktail's Castle,
              and they really aren't that hard to defeat,
              either. To win, simply use your Hammer.


 Red Magikoopa
 Location: Glitz Pit
 Attack: 4
 Defense: 0
 HP: 7
 Description: Red Magikoopas aren't too hard to defeat
              but they can boost their Defense Power
              with defensive magic, so this makes
              sometimes for a tedious fight.


 R. S. Buzzy
 Location: Glitz Pit
 Attack: 3
 Defense: 4
 HP: 5
 Description: These guys are located in the Glitz Pit,
              and they have high Defense Power and a
              spike on their head, so you can't jump
              on them or use your Hammer on them. What
              to do, then? Use Earth Tremor to defeat
              it.


 Red Chomp
 Location: Glitz Pit
 Attack: 5
 Defense: 3
 HP: 6
 Description: This guy is a red Chain Chomp, and it has
              high Attack Power, high Defense Power, and
              6 HP, so this makes this enemy hard to defeat.



 Rawk Hawk
 Location: Glitz Pit
 Attack: 4
 Defense: 1
 HP: 30
 Description: Rawk Hawk is the champion in the Glitzville
              Fighting Arena, but he is unaware of Grubba's
              true identity and his power-sucking machine.
              When he hangs from the ceiling when you fight
              him, the only way to get him down is to use
              Flurrie's Body Slam, use Quake Hammer, or use
              Earth Tremor. Rawk Hawk isn't a very tough
              opponent if you use Power Smash to damage him.


 Ruff Puff
 Location: Riverside Station
 Attack: 4
 Defense: 0
 HP: 7
 Description: Ruff Puffs aren't that hard to defeat, but they
              aren't the easiest thing, either. They will
              charge up with lightning, and then they will
              shock you with it, so be careful when fighting
              this enemy.


 Spiky Goomba
 Location: Rogueport Sewers
 Attack: 2
 Defense: 0
 HP: 2
 Description: Spiky Goombas are normal Goombas except with a
              horn helmet on their heads. In other words, if
              you jump on them, your the one who'll take the
              damage, so don't jump on them, and you'll be
              fine.


 Spinia
 Location: Rogueport Sewers
 Attack: 1
 Defense: 0
 HP: 3
 Description: Spinias aren't that hard to defeat at all, as
              they have only 1 Attack Power, and 3 HP. Just
              attack them to defeat them.


 Spania
 Location: Rogueport Sewers
 Attack: 1
 Defense: 0
 HP: 3
 Description: Spanias are the tougher brothers of the Spinia
              enemies. The only difference in Spanias are that
              if you jump on them, they will hurt you due to
              their horns.


 Spiny
 Location: Glitz Pit
 Attack: 3
 Defense: 3
 HP: 3
 Description: Spinys appear in the Glitz Pit in Glitzville, and
              aren't as easy as you would think to defeat, as a
              Lakitu accompanies them when you fight them in
              Glitzville. The Lakitu that accompanies these Spinys
              can create more Spinys, making this fight hard if
              you don't win the fight against the Spinys and the
              Lakitu fast enough.


 Shady Koopa
 Location: Glitz Pit
 Attack: 3
 Defense: 1
 HP: 8
 Description: Shady Koopas are also enemies that appear in the Glitz
              Pit, and are relatively easy yet relatively hard to
              defeat, depending on how you fight them. Jump on them
              to knock them down on their back. Then, execute all your
              attacks on them to defeat them.


 Shady Paratroopa
 Location: Glitz Pit
 Attack: 3
 Defense: 1
 HP: 8
 Description: Shady Paratroopas are also enemies that appear in the Glitz
              Pit, and are relatively easy yet relatively hard to defeat,
              depending on how you fight them. Jump on them twice to knock
              them down on their back. Then, execute all your attacks on
              them to defeat them.


 Spike Top
 Location: Creepy Steeple
 Attack: 3
 Defense: 4
 HP: 5
 Description: Spike Tops are located in the Creepy Steeple, and they are
              not that easy to defeat, either. If you jump on it, as you
              already know by now, you'll take damage instead of the Spike
              Top. Be sure to use Earth Tremor, or some attack Items to
              defeat this guy.

 Swooper
 Location: Creepy Stepple
 Attack: 3
 Defense: 0
 HP: 6
 Description: Swoopers are bats located in the Creepy Steeple, and they
              aren't that hard to defeat. Just jump on them until they
              are defeated.



 Smorg
 Location: Excess Express
 Attack: 5
 Defense: 1
 HP: 50
 Description: Smorg is the boss in Chapter 6, and it isn't easy to defeat,
              either due to its high HP, high Attack Power. Plus, on top
              of all that, Smorg has 1 Defense Power, making this foe a
              very tough and formidable foe to defeat. Be careful when
              fighting this enemy.


 Spiky Parabuzzy
 Location: Riverside Station
 Attack: 3
 Defense: 4
 HP: 5
 Description: Spiky Parabuzzys are located in the Riveside Station, and
              are very hard to defeat, due to their high Defense Power,
              and the spike on their head doesn't make things better, as
              if you jump on them, your the one who'll take the damage.


 Sky-Blue Spiny
 Location: Pit of 100 Trials
 Attack: 6
 Defense: 4
 HP: 6
 Description: Sky-Blue Spinys are not easy to defeat. Just take a look
              at their stats. This makes Sky-Blue Spinys formidable
              opponents. Jump on them and you'll take damage. Use Earth
              Tremor or an attack Item to defeat them.


 Spiky Gloomba
 Location: Pit of 100 Trials
 Attack: 4
 Defense: 0
 HP: 7
 Description: Spiky Gloombas are located in the Pit of 100 Trials, and
              are relatively hard yet relatively easy to defeat. They
              have high HP for a Goomba, so watch out! Also be sure not
              to jump on them, or you'll take damage.


 Spunia

 Attack: 7
 Defense: 2
 HP: 12
 Description: Spunias are really tough and are located in the Pit of 100
              Trials. Defeating these guys isn't easy, so be very careful
              when fighting these unordinary enemies. Jump on them, and
              you'll take damage, so avoid jumping on them at all costs.


 Swampire
 Location: Pit of 100 Trials
 Attack: 6
 Defense: 0
 HP: 20
 Description: Swampires are located only in the Pit of 100 Trials. These
              guys aren't easy to defeat, either, as they have 6 Attack
              Power and 20 HP. Making these foes very tough to beat.


 Swooupla
 Location: Palace of Shadow
 Attack: 4
 Defense: 0
 HP: 9
 Description: Swoopulas are located in the Palace of Shadow, and are not
              that hard to defeat, but they have 4 Attack Power, so don't
              be careless.

 Location: Boggly Woods/Twilight Town
 Attack: 1
 Defense: 0
 HP: 10
 Description: Vivian is the youngest sister of Beldam, leader of the Shadow
              Sirens. Vivian always gets taken advantage of and punished by
              her oldest sister, Beldam. In Twilight Town, Vivian is looking
              for something that she must find as Beldam accused her for
              losing it. Otherwise she'll get punished. Vivian joins Mario in
              Twilight Town to help Mario get his name and body back from the
              evil Doopliss. Vivian soon joins Mario for good after defeating
              Doopliss, to find the Crystal Stars.


 White Magikoopa
 Location: Glitz Pit
 Attack: 4
 Defense: 0
 HP: 7
 Description: White Magikoopas are located in the Glitz Pit, and aren't easy
              to defeat, either. They will use magic that restores their HP,
              and their allies' HP also, so be careful when fighting White
              Magikoopas.


 Wizzerd
 Location: Pit of 100 Trials
 Attack: 6
 Defense: 3
 HP: 10
 Description: Wizzerds are located in the Pit of 100 Trials, and they aren't
              at all easy to defeat. Just look at their enormous Attack Power,
              and high HP. They also have 3 Defense Power. Be very careful
              when fighting this enemy.


 X-Naut
 Location: Great Tree
 Attack: 3
 Defense: 0
 HP: 4

 Location: Great Tree
 Attack: 2
 Defense: 0
 HP: 3
 Description: Yuxs are located in the Great Boggly Tree, and they aren't
              very hard to defeat, either. However, they will spawn
              Mini-X-Yuxs to protect them from attacks. As long as the
              Yux has a Mini-X-Yux protecting him, he's invincible. Jump
              on the Mini-X-Yuxs the Yux uses to protect himself with,
              and you'll defeat them. As long as the Yux is not protected
              by Mini-X-Yuxs, then you can focus all of your air attacks
              on him to defeat him.


 Z-Yux
 Location: The Moon
 Attack: 4
 Defense: 0
 HP: 7
 Description: Z-Yuxs are located on The Moon, and, just like the X-Yux
              and the Yux, are protected by Mini-Yuxs known as
              Mini-Z-Yuxs. As long as the Z-Yux has a Mini-Z-Yux
              protecting him, he's invincible. Jump on the Mini-Z-Yuxs
              the Z-Yux uses to protect himself with, and you'll defeat
              them. As long as the Z-Yux is not protected by Mini-Z-Yuxs,
              then you can focus all of your air attacks on him to defeat
              him.


 X-Yux
 Location: X-Naut Fortress
 Attack: 3
 Defense: 1
 HP: 10
 Description: X-Yuxs are located in the X-Naut Fortress, and, just like
              the Z-Yux and the Yux, are protected by Mini-Yuxs known as
              Mini-X-Yuxs. As long as the X-Yux has a Mini-X-Yux
              protecting him, he's invincible. Jump on the Mini-X-Yuxs
              the X-Yux uses to protect himself with, and you'll defeat
              them. As long as the X-Yux is not protected by Mini-X-Yuxs,
              the you can focus all of your air attacks on him to defeat

 | 10. Glitz Pit                                                        |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-|

 Here I will list strategies for each of the Glitz Pit fighters that you
 have to fight, and information about them.


 Minor League Opponents
 ----------------------


 Opponent #1 - Goomba Bros (each enemy is a normal Goomba)
 Rank: 21
 League: Minor League
 Attack: (each Goomba) 1
 Defense: (each Goomba) 0
 HP: (each Goomba) 2
 Strategy: The Goomba Bros is your first opponent in the Glitz Pit,
           and they are very easy. Just Multibounce them to defeat
           them. Don't do anything Grubba tells you not to (i.e.
           if he tells you not to use FP then don't unless you want
           to fight them again). Otherwise, you'll have to fight
           these guys again.


 Opponent #2 - KP Koopas (each Troopa is the same color, except one of
 Rank: 18                 them has wings)
 League: Minor League
 Attack: (each Koopa) 2
 Defense: (each Koopa) 1
 HP: (each Koopa) 4
 Strategy: Defeating the KP Koopas isn't that hard, simply use
           Multibounce or use Gale Force until you defeat them.
           Don't do anything Grubba tells you not to (i.e. if
           he tells you not to use FP then don't unless you
           want to fight them again). Otherwise, you'll have
           to fight these guys again.


 Opponent #3 - Pokey Triplets (each enemy in the fight is a Pokey)
 Rank: 17
 League: Minor League
 Attack: (each Triplet) 3
 Defense: (each Triplet) 0
 HP: (each Pokey) 4
 Strategy: These guys shouldn't be too hard, but if you aren't
           careful, than it makes this fight a bit tougher than
           it should be. First off, if you jump on them, you'll
           take damage instead of them. Now, they don't have that
           strong of an Attack Power, but it is enough to hurt you,
           so watch out! To win, use Earth Tremor or use Power Smash
           or Normal Hammer until they die. If you have Goombella she
           can't fight, so don't use her. If you have Koops use Power
           Shell to cause some damage here. If you have Flurrie use
           Gale Force to blow them away. Use Sweet Treat when and if
           needed, as you need to conserve your Super Shrooms instead
           of use them now. Keep repeating this and you should win this
           battle with no problems. Don't do anything Grubba tells you
           not to (i.e. if he tells you not to use FP then don't unless
           you want to fight them again). Otherwise, you'll have to
           fight these guys again.


 Opponent #4 - Dead Bones (each enemy in the fight is a Dull Bones)
 Rank: 16
 League: Minor League
 Attack: (each Bone) 1
 Defense: (each Bone) 0
 HP: (each Bone) 1
 Strategy: These guys are just Dull Bones that you fought in Hooktail's
           Castle, so just use your Hammer on them or use Power Shell
           with Koops, or use Gale Force with Flurrie to defeat them.
           Don't do anything Grubba tells you not to (i.e. if he tells
           you not to use FP then don't unless you want to fight them
           again). Otherwise, you'll have to fight these guys again.


 Opponent #5 - Spike Storm (each enemy in the fight is a Spiny)
 Rank: 15
 League: Minor League
 Attack: (each Spiny) 3
 Defense: (each Spiny) 3
 Attack: (Lakitu) 2
 Defense: (Lakitu) 0
 HP: (Lakitu) 5
 HP: (each Spiny) 3
 Strategy: The Spinys are accompanied by a Lakitu, which means the
           Lakitu can create more Spinys if you don't win this
           battle fast enough. To win, use Earth Tremor or Gale
           Force, or Power Shell. Then, for the Lakitu, use Power
           Bounce and Body Slam with Flurrie, but this is only
           necessary on the Lakitu if he's still alive and lived
           through Earth Tremor. Keep doing this (but don't keep
           using Earth Tremor, as it takes way too much time) and
           use Sweet Treat to heal if you need to. Keep this up,
           and you'll win in no time. Don't do anything Grubba
           tells you not to (i.e. if he tells you not to use FP
           then don't unless you want to fight them again).
           Otherwise, you'll have to fight these guys again.


 Opponent #6 - Hand-It-Overs (there are two Bandits and two Big
 Rank: 14                     Bandits in the fight)
 League: Minor League
 Attack: (Bandit) 2
 Defense: (Bandit) 0
 HP: (Bandit) 5
 Attack: (Big Bandit) 3
 Defense: (Big Bandit) 0
 HP: (Big Bandit) 8
 Strategy: These guys are not that hard, but they will steal your
           stuff, which makes them annoying, because once they
           steal something from you, I haven't found a way to get
           them back, if there even is a way. Guard well and
           effectively to avoid getting your stuff stolen. Anyway,
           these guys have no real attacks to worry about, just a
           bit of Attack Power if they both attack you, adding a
           total of 5 damage in two hits, so be sure to reduce the
           damage given to you. To beat these guys, use Earth Tremor
           if you have enough SP. If not, use Multibounce to cause
           some damage. Then if you have Flurrie, use Gale Force,
           if you have Koops use Power Shell, and if you have
           Goombella use Headbonk which won't be very useful for
           this fight. Use Sweet Treat if needed for healing.
           Don't do anything Grubba tells you not to (i.e. if he
           tells you not to use FP then don't unless you want to
           fight them again). Otherwise, you'll have to fight
           these guys again.


 Opponent #7 - Mind-Bogglers (there is a Pale Piranha, a Dark Puff,
 Rank: 13                     and a Pider in the fight)
 League: Minor League
 Attack: (Pale Piranha) 2
 Defense: (Pale Piranha) 0
 HP: (Pale Piranha) 4
 Attack: (Dark Puff) 2
 Defense: (Dark Puff) 0
 HP: (Dark Puff) 3
 Attack: (Pider) 2
 Defense: (Pider) 0
 HP: (Pider) 5
 Strategy: To defeat these guys from Boggly Woods and the Boggly
           Tree, use Earth Termor if you have enough SP. If not,
           use your Hammer and then use Gale Force with Flurrie.
           If you need healing, use Sweet Treat when needed. Keep
           doing this, and don't worry about their attacks, as
           they can't really hurt you that much. If you keep doing
           this, you'll win in a minute or two. Don't do anything
           Grubba tells you not to (i.e. if he tells you not to use
           FP then don't unless you want to fight them again).
           Otherwise, you'll have to fight these guys again.


 Opponent #8 - Punk Rocks (each enemy in the fight is a Hyper Bald
 Rank: 12                  Cleft)
 League: Minor League
 Attack: (Hyper Bald Cleft) 2
 Defense: (Hyper Bald Cleft) 2
 HP: (Hyper Bald Cleft) 3
 Strategy: Use Earth Tremor, and be sure to get it as good as
           possible. If you execute Earth Tremor perfectly, it
           will kill all Hyper Bald Clefts and you'll walk away
           from this fight victorious. However, if Earth Tremor
           fails to kill them, switch to using your Hammer. If
           you have Goombella in your party, take her out, as
           she is completely useless in this fight. If you have
           Koops in, use his Power Shell to deal some damage to
           all the Hyper Bald Clefts. If you have Flurrie in,
           use her Gale Force attack and it might blow them all
           away, or it might blow one or two of them away. Now,
           jumping doesn't work on these guys with any party
           member including Mario, so don't even try to jump on
           them. These guys don't really have that big of an
           Attack Power, as it only averages to 2, so just reduce
           the damage done to you when they attack you. Keep doing
           this until you win, but remember, if Earth Tremor fails
           to kill these guys, then don't bother using Appeal to
           get more energy to use Earth Tremor again, as it is
           useless and could leave you low on HP. If you need
           to heal use Sweet Treat. Don't do anything Grubba
           tells you not to (i.e. if he tells you not to use FP
           then don't unless you want to fight them again).
           Otherwise, you'll have to fight these guys again.


 Opponent #9 - Bob-omb Squad (each enemy in the fight is a Bob-omb)
 Rank: 11
 League: Minor League
 Attack: (each Bob-omb) 2
 Defense: (each Bob-omb) 1
 HP: (each Bob-omb) 4
 Strategy: Make sure you have Flurrie for this fight. Have Mario
           use Multibounce. Then, have Flurrie use Gale Force and
           you'll win this fight without any problems at all. This
           strategy is from my little brother in real life, thanks
           dude! Don't do anything Grubba tells you not to (i.e.
           if he tells you not to use FP then don't unless you
           want to fight them again). Otherwise, you'll have to
           fight these guys again.


 Major League Opponents

 Opponent #1 - The Armored Harriers (there is an Iron Cleft red
 Rank: 10                            type, and an Iron Cleft
 League: Major League                green type in the fight)
 Attack: (Iron Cleft red type) 4
 Defense: (Iron Cleft red type) N/A
 HP: (Iron Cleft red type) 6
 Attack: (Iron Cleft green type) 4
 Defense: (Iron Cleft green type) N/A
 HP: (Iron Cleft green type) 6
 Strategy: Even though you fight a major-league battle though you
           are still in the minor-league, I'll still count this
           as a major-league fight, as it is because The Armored
           Harriers are major-leaguers. The Iron Clefts have very
           high Defense, as nothing hurts them except Yoshi's Gulp.
           The Iron Clefts' attacks aren't generally large, but
           they can cause some significant damage if you aren't
           careful, so be sure to use "Defend" with Mario, and let
           Yoshi do the talking. Have Yoshi use Gulp (make sure
           you get it perfect) and you'll damage both Iron Clefts
           4.Repeat this again and you'll beat the Iron Clefts.
           Congratulations! You're now a true major-leaguer!.
           Don't do anything Grubba tells you not to (i.e. if he
           tells you not to use FP then don't unless you want to
           fight them again). Otherwise, you'll have to fight
           these guys again.


 Opponent #2 - The Armored Harriers (rematch) (there is an Iron Cleft red
 Rank: 11 (rematch only)                       type, and an Iron Cleft
 League: Major League                          green type in the fight)
 Attack: (Iron Cleft red type) 4
 Defense: (Iron Cleft red type) N/A
 HP: (Iron Cleft red type) 6
 Attack: (Iron Cleft green type) 4
 Defense: (Iron Cleft green type) N/A
 HP: (Iron Cleft green type) 6
 Strategy: In this rematch, have Yoshi use Gulp two times and you
           will win after that. Don't do anything Grubba tells
           you not to (i.e. if he tells you not to use FP then
           don't unless you want to fight them again). Otherwise,
           you'll have to fight these guys again.


 Opponent #3 - Tiny Spinies (each enemy in the fight is a R. S. Buzzy)
 Rank: 9
 League: Major League
 Attack: (each R. S. Buzzy) 3
 Defense: (each R. S. Buzzy) 4
 HP: (each R. S. Buzzy) 5
 Strategy: Defeating the Tiny Spinies isn't that hard. Use Gulp
           with Yoshi twice and you'll win. Don't do anything
           Grubba tells you not to (i.e. if he tells you not to
           use FP then don't unless you want to fight them
           again). Otherwise, you'll have to fight these guys
           again.


 Opponent #4 - The Shellshockers (there are two Shady Koopas and
 Rank: 8                          a Shady Paratroopa in the fight)
 League: Major League
 Attack: (each Troopa) 3
 Defense: (each Troopa) 1
 HP: (each Troopa) 8
 Strategy: Use Earth Tremor, but if Grubba did not say not to use
           Special Moves, then go ahead and use Earth Tremor
           and try and get it perfect. If you can't use Earth
           Tremor because of your lack of SP, or because of
           Grubba, just forget it and don't bother charging up
           2 SP, as it is a complete waste of time. Anyway, use
           Earth Tremor if you can, or use your Hammer on the
           Shady Koopas until you defeat them. Be sure to reduce
           the damage given to you when they attack you. Take
           note DO NOT KNOCK THEM ON THEIR BACKS, as if you do,
           they can toss their shell like Koops does on Power
           Shell and they'll hurt you and your partner 5, so
           DO NOT knock them on their backs, or it could be
           Game Over for you. Anyway, use your Hammer on the
           Shady Koopas, like I said and have Yoshi use Gulp.
           Do this until the Shady Koopas are dead. Once they
           are dead, jump "ONLY ONCE" on the Shady Paratroopa.
           This will knock it off air level to ground level.
           Once you do that, use Gulp with Yoshi two times and
           you'll win this battle. You can also use Flurrie's
           Gale Force and Koops's Power Shell, but Goombella's
           overall useless, as usual. If you need to heal use
           Sweet Treat. Don't do anything Grubba tells you not
           to (i.e. if he tells you not to use FP then don't
           unless you want to fight them again). Otherwise,
           you'll have to fight these guys again.


 Opponent #5 - The Poker Faces (each enemy in the fight is a Bristle)
 Rank: 7
 League: Major League
 Attack: (each Bristle) 1
 Defense: (each Bristle) 4
 HP: (each Bristle) 2
 Strategy: If Grubba didn't say you couldn't use Special Moves, use
           Earth Tremor and make sure you get it to "Great" or
           better. If you do that, you'll kill these guys in one hit.
           If Grubba said that you couldn't use Special Moves, use
           attack Items if you have any. If not, use Flurrie's Gale
           Force until you blow them all away. Use a Honey Syrup if
           you get low on FP. Keep doing this and you'll easily win.
           Don't do anything Grubba tells you not  to (i.e. if he
           tells you not to use FP then don't  unless you want to
           fight them again). Otherwise,  you'll have to fight these
           guys again.


 Opponent #6 - The Armored Harriers (3rd fight) (there is an Iron
 Rank: 11 (2nd and 3rd fight)                    Cleft red type
 League: Major League                            and a Iron Cleft
 Attack: (Iron Cleft red type) 4                 green type in
 Defense: (Iron Cleft red type) N/A              the fight)
 HP: (Iron Cleft red type) 6
 Attack: (Iron Cleft green type) 4
 Defense: (Iron Cleft green type) N/A
 HP: (Iron Cleft green type) 6
 Strategy: Use Gulp two times and you'll win again. Don't they
           ever give up? Also make sure Mario is front of Yoshi,
           as Yoshi dies really easy.


 Opponent #7 - The Magikoopa Masters (there is a Red Magikoopa, a
 Rank: 6                              White Magikoopa, and a Green
 League: Major League                 Magikoopa in the fight)
 Attack: (Red Magikoopa) 4
 Defense: (Red Magikoopa) 0
 HP: (Red Magikoopa) 7
 Attack: (White Magikoopa) 4
 Defense: (White Magikoopa) 0
 HP: (White Magikoopa) 7
 Attack: (Green Magikoopa) 4
 Defense: (Green Magikoopa) 0
 HP: (Green Magikoopa) 7
 Strategy: To win this fight, use Power Bounce on the Green
           Magikoopa (it will kill her in one Power Bounce
           if you get it six times.) Then have Yoshi use
           Gulp twice to defeat The Magikoopa Masters.
           They'll attack you with magic which can hurt 4
           if you don't reduce the damage, so watch out!
           Don't do anything Grubba tells you not  to (i.e.
           if he tells you not to use FP then don't unless
           you want to fight them again). Otherwise, you'll
           have to fight these guys again.

 Opponent #8 - The Fuzz (there is a Fuzzy, a Flower Fuzzy,
 Rank: 5                 and a Green Fuzzy in the fight)
 Attack: (Fuzzy) 1
 Defense: (Fuzzy) 0
 HP: (Fuzzy) 3
 Attack: (Flower Fuzzy) 3
 Defense: (Flower Fuzzy) 0
 HP: (Flower Fuzzy) 5
 Attack: (Green Fuzzy) 3
 Defense: (Green Fuzzy) 0
 HP: (Green Fuzzy) 5
 Strategy: Okay, this fight isn't too hard to win, but it is
           slightly annoying, as the Fuzzy will drain HP from
           you. The Flower Fuzzy will drain FP from you and
           the Green Fuzzy will drain HP from you as well,
           which makes this fight annoying, but other than
           that it isn't too hard. First off, use Earth Tremor
           if Grubba didn't stop you from using Special Moves.
           If you execute Earth Tremor perfectly, you'll win
           after that attack, but if not, you won't. If Grubba
           told you no Special Moves, then use Multibounce and
           have Yoshi use Gulp. Then, use Multibounce after the
           Fuzzies attack you, and then have Yoshi use Gulp
           again. Keep doing this if you can use FP and you'll
           win. If Grubba doesn't want any FP, then use attacks
           that cost no FP (this sucks, I know, but if Grubba
           told you no, then this is the only way.) At any
           rate, use FP if Grubba didn't tell you not to use it.
           Use Earth Tremor if he doesn't care if you use Special
           Moves. If he doesn't want FP or Special Moves, use
           no FP attacks. Also if he doesn't want any of these
           three, use attack Items such as POW Block. Just do
           whatever he didn't disable. Keep doing these patterns
           if Grubba didn't tell you not to, and you'll win very
           easily. Don't do anything Grubba tells you not to
           (i.e. if he tells you not to use FP then don't unless
           you want to fight them again). Otherwise, you'll have
           to fight these guys again.


 Opponent #9 - Craw-Daddy (there is only one enemy which is a Dark
 Rank: 4                   Craw in the fight)
 Attack: 6
 Defense: 0
 HP: 20
 Strategy: Defeating this guy isn't easy. Have Mario use his Hammer
           attacks, and if Grubba didn't say not to use FP, then use
           Power Smash. If you have Flurrie, she's usless, so don't
           use her. If you have Goombella, she's also useless, so
           forget her as well. Koops is useful, though with his
           Shell Toss or Power Shell, so you can use him if you
           want. Yoshi is useful as well, especially if Grubba lets
           you use FP, because of his powerful Gulp attack. If Grubba
           doesn't let you use FP, don't use Yoshi, as he's usless
           with Ground Pound against the Dark Craw. Anyway, do
           whatever Grubba says. Just stick to your guns, which means
           do whatever Grubba hasn't told you not to and use Sweet
           Treat when needed for healing. Keep this up and you'll win
           in no time. Don't do anything Grubba tells you not to (i.e.
           if he tells you not to use FP then don't unless you want to
           fight them again). Otherwise, you'll have to fight these
           guys again.


 Opponent #10 - Hamma, Bamma, and Flare (there is a Hammer Bro, a Fire
 Rank: 3                                 Bro, and a Boomerang Bro in
 Attack: (Hammer Bro) 4                  the fight)
 Defense: (Hammer Bro) 1
 HP: (Hammer Bro) 7
 Attack: (Fire Bro) 3
 Defense: (Fire Bro) 1
 HP: (Fire Bro) 7
 Attack: (Boomerang Bro) 2
 Defense: (Boomerang Bro) 1
 HP: (Boomerang Bro) 7
 Strategy: Okay, this fight can be a bit tough, because of the multiple
           attacks these guys attack you with. The Hammer Bro attacks
           you with multiple Hammers before he quits attacking. The
           Fire Bro attacks with multiple fireballs before he quits
           attacking. The Boomerang Bro attacks with his boomerang
           which hits both Mario and his partner. The Boomerang Bro
           will do this twice before he quits attacking. This makes
           this fight really hard and really annoying. Use Earth Tremor,
           even if Grubba tells you not to. Even if it means fighting
           these guys multiple times, just use Earth Tremor until you
           don't have to fight them anymore. Use Power Smash if you
           don't want to use Earth Tremor. Use Sweet Treat if needed.
           Don't do anything Grubba tells you not to (i.e. if he tells
           you not to use FP then don't unless you want to fight them
           again). Otherwise, you'll have to fight these guys again.


 Opponent #11 - Chomp Country (each Chomp is a Red Chomp)
 Rank: 2
 Attack: (each Chomp) 5
 Defense: (each Chomp) 3
 HP: (each Chomp) 6
 Strategy: To win this fight, I recommend using Power Smash, but if
           Grubba tells you not to use FP, then don't. If you can't
           use FP, use Earth Tremor and Normal Hammer. Keep using
           whatever Grubba doesn't disable that you will actually
           hurt these guys until you win. Use Sweet Treat if needed.
           Don't do anything Grubba tells you not to (i.e. if he
           tells you not to use FP then don't unless you want to
           fight them again). Otherwise, you'll have to fight these
           guys again.


 Opponent #12 - The Koopinator (The Koopinator is the only enemy you
 Rank: 1                        fight in this fight)
 Attack: 5
 Defense: N/A
 HP: 20
 Strategy: DO EXACTLY AS Grubba says, because you DON'T want to fight
           this guy over and over, as he's HARD! Use your Hammer and
           use Yoshi's Gulp if Grubba allows. Use Earth Tremor if he
           allows as well, and try and get it perfect if you use Earth
           Tremor. If you have Koops in your group, use Shell Toss and
           Power Shell if Grubba allows it. If you have Flurrie, she's
           useless. Same for Goombella. Overall useless. Do powerful
           attacks that Grubba doesn't disable. Use Sweet Treat to heal
           if you need to. Don't do anything Grubba tells you not to
           (i.e. if he tells you not to use FP then don't unless you
           want to fight them again). Otherwise, you'll have to fight
           these guys again.


 Championship Opponents
 ----------------------


 Rawk Hawk
 Rank: Champion
 Attack: 4
 Defense: 1
 HP: 30
 Strategy: Defeating the Rawk Hawk is kind of hard, but kind of not. To
           win, have Mario use Power Smash and have Yoshi use Ground Pound.
           Keep doing this until Rawk Hawk goes on the ceiling. When he
           does that, switch to Flurrie and use Body Slam to knock him down.
           Then, repeat the Power Smash attacks, but don't bother switching
           Yoshi back in, as the Rawk Hawk will go back on the ceiling again.
           Quake Hammer also knocks him down from the ceiling. Keep doing
           this and use Sweet Treat to heal if needed. Be sure to reduce the
           damage that Rawk Hawk gives you, as he's HARD!

 Here I will list every technique that costs FP, SP (Star Points), and I
 will list all the techniques that your partners has, and information
 about them, how much FP/SP they take to use, where they're learned, etc.

 Mario's Techs:

 Normal Jump
 FP Cost: N/A
 Action Command: Press "A" just before you jump on an enemy to cause extra
                 damage.
 What This Tech Does: Mario will damage an enemy by jumping on their heads.
                      Press "A" just before landing on the enemy to execute
                      extra damage.

 Normal Hammer
 FP: Cost N/A
 Action Command: Hold Left on the Control Stick and release it when (*)
                 lights up. Only if you time it correctly (timing means
                 releasing it right when (*) lights up) will you execute
                 extra damage.
 What This Tech Does: Mario will use his Hammer to hit enemies with.


 Mario's Star Techs:

 Sweet Treat
 SP Cost: 1
 Action Command: To execute this Star Tech, repeadeatly press Left on the
                 Control Stick back and forth and be sure to aim for the
                 Mario faces and his partners faces. This will give you
                 HP after the move is over. Also be sure to get the Flower
                 that appears when you use this move to get some FP after
                 the move is used. One more thing: avoid hitting the
                 Poisonus Mushrooms that appear on the screen. Otherwise,
                 you'll be slowed down (if you hit the Poisonus Mushrooms)
                 and stunned for a few seconds, thus disabling you from
                 gaining the HP/FP that you would normally get without
                 getting stunned from the Poisonus Mushroom.
 What This Tech Does: This first Star Tech heals up your HP/FP, but slows
                      you down and stuns you for a few seconds if you hit
                      the Poisonus Mushrooms that appear when you use this
                      move, so be careful when using Sweet Treat.

 Earth Tremor
 SP Cost: 2
 Action Command: To use this Star Tech, press A when the meter reaches a
                 (*). Each time you hit all the (*) circles on the screen,
                 you will have to hit more (*) circles when your meter
                 reaches them again. Take note that each time you hit a
                 full row of (*) circles, that the next row of (*) circles
                 will go even faster. You can hit six rows of (*) circles
                 altogether. Then, Earth Tremor ends and hits all enemies
                 and damages them 6! Take note that if you don't fail to
                 hit one (*) circle, the move will end and will damage the
                 enemy according to however much (*) circle rows you hit
                 before you failed in hitting anymore.
 What This Tech Does: Earth Tremor is an earth-type move which is just like
                      an earthquake that damages all enemies on the screen
                      1-6. This makes Earth Tremor and very useful move from
                      Chapter 2 until you after you beat Chapter 4. When Art
                      Attack takes over, this move is utterly useless. Earth
                      Tremor also hits even airborne enemies, such as the
                      Rawk Hawk.

 Clock Out
 SP Cost: 2
 Action Command: This attack is just like a game of hot potato. To do Clock
                 Out, press the button which will appear on the enemies on
                 screen. This will toss a huge Bob-omb at them. Then, mash the
                 button as fast as possible. The button will change every few
                 seconds, so take note of that. Depending on how good you do,
                 your opponents won't be able to move for a long time...a long
                 time.
What This Tech Does: Clock out lets you paralyze (immobilize) all enemies on
                     screen for a short amount of time.


 Power Lift
 SP Cost: 3
 Action Command: The Action Command for Power Lift is aligning the cursor with
                 the good panels and pressing "A" once the panels are
                 highlighted. The good panels are the orange and blue arrows.
                 The bad ones are the Poisonus Mushrooms. The grid on Power
                 Lift (where the arrows and the Poisonus Mushrooms are) is
                 3 x 3. Here's a map of it:


                 _    _    _
                (_)  (_)  (_)     <--- (Poisonus Mushrooms)
                      _
                 ^   (_)   ^
                 |         |      <--- (^ = Orange or Blue Arrows)
                                       (|)
                 ^    ^    _
                 |    |   (_)     <--- (The same as the grid above, just
                                        different positions)
 What This Tech Does: Power Lift increases the Attack Power and Defense Power
                      of your party. The better you exectue it, the better it
                      is for your party!


 Art Attack
 SP Cost: 4
 Action Command: Art Attack's Action Command is relatively simple (no, you
                 don't have to be an artist to execute it). All you do is draw
                 a circle around the enemies on the screen (this works on
                 Bosses as well). You can draw the circle over and over (you
                 have a certain time limit before the attack automatically
                 executes. This happens regardless.) around the desired
                 enemies onscreen. The circles don't have to be perfect, but
                 they have to be enclosed in order for Art Attack to work. The
                 more you draw around enemies (the faster the better, so be
                 sure to practice as often as you want), the more effective
                 the attack. Overall, Art Attack can do more damage than
                 Supernova and costs less SP.
 What This Tech Does: Art Attack is a very useful Star Tech (even better than
                      Supernova) and is relatively easy to execute. It can
                      hurt anywhere between 3 (3 in a perfect circle) to 30,
                      depending on how good you are at it.


 Sweet Feast
 SP Cost: 5
 Action Command: To execute this Star Tech, repeadeatly press Left on the
                 Control Stick back and forth and be sure to aim for the
                 Mario faces and his partners faces. They have HUGE Mario
                 faces and HUGE partner faces which will give you 5 HP for
                 ONE, so be SURE to hit those! This will give you HP after the
                 move is over. Also be sure to get the Flower (there's also a
                 HUGE Flower this time, so be sure to get THAT for a whopping
                 5 HP!) that appears when you use this move to get some FP
                 after the move is used. One more thing: avoid hitting the
                 Poisonus Mushrooms that appear on the screen. Otherwise,
                 you'll be slowed down (if you hit the Poisonus Mushrooms) and
                 stunned for a few seconds, thus disabling you from gaining
                 the HP/FP that you would normally get without getting stunned
                 from the Poisonus Mushroom. Note: There's something new to
                 Sweet Feast besides the big Hearts and Flowers. You can just
                 simply hold "Left" on the Control Stick to rapid-fire (be
                 sure to let up sometimes to avoiding hitting Poisionus
                 Mushrooms).
 What This Tech Does: This first Star Tech heals up your HP/FP, but slows
                      you down and stuns you for a few seconds if you hit
                      the Poisonus Mushrooms that appear when you use this
                      move, so be careful when using Sweet Feast.


 Showstopper
 SP Cost: 2
 Action Command: The Action Command for Showstopper is just simply pressing
                 the buttons as they appear on the screen (you don't get timed
                 for this, so that's good). You have to go through five
                 sequences of this move to fully complete it like you do on
                 Earth Tremor. If you get a "Wonderful!", or an "Excellent!,
                 be prepared to kill (or nearly kill) all the enemies
                 onscreen. Take note that Showstopper doesn't work on Bosses.
 What This Tech Does: Showstopper defeats all enemies onscreen instantly
                      depending on how well you do out of the five sequences
                      of this attack. This is overall better than Art Attack
                      and Supernova if you think about it. AND, it costs less
                      SP, too.


 Supernova
 SP Cost: 6
 Action Command: Supernova is executed by repeadeatly tap "A" as fast as you
                 can. There are five phases to this attack. Each time you
                 successfully tap "A", you'll go to another phase of the
                 attack. Each time you successfully complete one of them,
                 they'll deal three damage to all enemies onscreen (including
                 Bosses). If you get all five phases fully completed, you'll
                 hurt all enemies onscreen (hurts Bosses this much, too) 15!
                 This is VERY useful in the Palace of Shadow on the Bosses, as
                 Showstopper doesn't work on the Bosses.
 What This Tech Does: Supernova creates three lines around all the enemies
                      onscreen. Each time you complete a phase of the attack,
                      three more lines are added. There are five phases in
                      all. The better you do, the more damage you inflict. If
                      you successfully complete all five phases, you'll deal
                      15 damage.


 Goombella's Techs:

 Headbonk
 FP Cost: 0
 Action Command: Press "A" just before hitting an enemy.

 What This Tech Does: Jumps on an enemy (not spiked enemies or flamed enemies)
 and deals damage depending on your level. Level One deals 1 to 2 HP of
 damage. Level Two deals 2 to 4 damage. Level Three deals 3 to 6 HP of damage.
 If you press "A" just before jumping on the enemy, you'll deal extra damage.

 Multibonk
 FP Cost: 3
 Action Command: Press "A" just before hitting an enemy.
 What This Tech Does: Multibonk is the same as Headbonk, it just hits all the
                      enemies onscreen (not spiked or flamed enemies). If you
                      press "A" before jumping on the enemy, you can hit them
                      unlimited times (until you miss an Action Command) but
                      it is only unlimited if you're Level Three on Goombella
                      as far as upgrades come (this is the same for Headbonk's
                      levels, too.). You'll also deal extra damage on the
                      first blow to the enemy if you press "A" right before
                      jumping on them.

 Tattle
 FP Cost: 0
 Action Command: Line up the small cursor with the center of the big cursor!
 What This Tech Does: Just like in Paper Mario 1, Tattle scans the selected
                      enemy's HP, ATK, and DFP and it costs absolutely NO FP!
                      This isn't very hard of an attack to execute, so don't
                      worry.

 Rally Wink
 FP Cost: 4
 Action Command: Press the "A" and "B" buttons simultaneously as shown
                 onscreen until you reach past the "OK" point.
 What This Tech Does: Rally Wink allows Mario to take an extra turn even if
                      he's already taken his turn. This is VERY useful for
                      defeating hard Bosses or enemies.


 Koops's Techs:

 Shell Toss
 FP Cost: 0
 Action Command: Hold "Left" on the Control Stick until (*) lights up.
 What This Tech Does: Shell Toss damages all enemies onscreen, but not very
                      much.


 Shell Shield
 FP Cost: 4
 Action Command: Press A when the "OK" nedle is in red.
 What This Tech Does: Brings a huge shell down to protect Mario.


 Power Shell
 FP Cost: 3
 Action Command: Hold "Left on the Control Stick until (*) lights up.
 What This Tech Does: Power Shell hits all enemies instead of just one. Plus,
                      it's more powerful than Shell Toss.


 Shell Slam
 FP Cost: 6
 Action Command: Flick the Control Stick "Left" repeatedly to fill up the
                 meter. If executed well enough, ignores enemies' Defense
                 Power.
 What This Tech Does: Shell Slam hits every ground-bound enemy and is BOUND
                      to cause damage.


 Flurrie's Techs:

 Body Slam
 FP Cost: 0
 Action Command: Press "A" when the "+" gets into the cursor. The better you
                 time, the better the result.
 What This Tech Does: Flurrie slams on an enemy (fails against spiked
                      enemies).


 Lip Lock
 FP Cost: 3
 Action Command: Hold A only when (*) lights up!
 What This Tech Does: Lip Lock drains an enemy's HP, and adds it to Flurrie's.


 Gale Force
 FP Cost: 4
 Action Command: Hold "A", then release. Fill the meter up as much as you can.
 What This Tech Does: Gale Force blows away all enemies onscreen (not
                      guaranteed).


 Dodgy Fog
 FP Cost: 4
 Action Command: Use the Control Stick the way the move tells you. Note: The
                 way you have to move the Control Stick, changes after each
                 use.
 What This Tech Does: Makes it where Mario is harder to hit.


 Yoshi's Techs:

 Ground Pound
 FP Cost: 0
 Action Command: Repeatedly move the Control Stick "Left".
 What This Tech Does: Ground pounds an enemy.


 Mini-Egg
 FP Cost: 3
 Action Command: Press A when (*) lights up.
 What This Tech Does: Yoshi throws eggs at enemies which shrinks them, thus
                      dropping their Attack Power. Mini-Egg also damages
                      them, depending on your upgrade level.


 Gulp
 FP Cost: 4
 Action Command: Hold "R" and release when (*) lights up.
 What This Tech Does: Yoshi puts an enemy in his mouth and throws it back at
                      another enemy. This is the only way to beat the Iron
                      Clefts in Glitzville.


 Stampede
 FP Cost: 6
 Action Command: Press L and R alternately.
 What This Tech Does: Yoshi summons a herd of other Yoshi's to attack all
                      enemies onscreen.


 Vivian's Techs:

 Shade Fist
 FP Cost: 0
 Action Command: Press the buttons as they appear onscreen.
 What This Tech Does: Vivian hits an enemy with a fiery fist.

 FP Cost: 6
 Action Command: Press the buttons as they appear onscreen.

                      attack which jinxes enemies by burning them. Burns
                      damage the burned enemies "1" as long as they are
                      burned.


 Veil
 FP Cost: 1
 Action Command: Press the buttons as they appear onscreen.
 What This Tech Does: Vivian uses her shadow powers to hide Mario and
                      herself from enemies. Works outside of battle, too.


 Infatuate
 FP Cost: 4
 Action Command: Press "A" when a heart appears over an enemy.
 What This Tech Does: Vivian blows a kiss to every enemy onscreen. If it
                      works, they'll be confused.


 Bobbery's Techs:

 Bomb
 FP Cost: 0
 Action Command: Hold "A" and release when (*) lights up.
 What This Tech Does: Bobbery runs over to an enemy, and explodes himself
                      in an attempt to damage them.


 Hold Fast
 FP Cost: 4
 Action Command: Hit the (*) circles when they turn red.
 What This Tech Does: Hold Fast is where Bobbery puts a shield around him
                      which makes enemies that come near him, get damaged.


 Bomb Squad
 FP Cost: 3
 Action Command: Press "A" when the cursor is moved at the enemy you want
                 to attack.
 What This Tech Does: Bobbery throws three bombs at enemies, which will
                      explode at the end of the next turn after the move
                      is used.


 Bob-Ombbast
 FP Cost: 9
 Action Command: Tap A as quickly as you can to fill the meter.
 What This Tech Does: Bob-Ombbast hits all enemies onscreen with a powerful
                      blast of explosive damage. Works well for the Shadow
                      Queen.


 Ms. Mowz's Techs:

 Love Slap
 FP Cost: 0
 Action Command: Repeatedly flick the Control Stick from "Left" to "Right".
 What This Tech Does: Love Slap drains an enemy's HP and if executed well
                      enough, ignores enemies' defenses.


 Tease
 FP Cost: 3
 Action Command: Hold "A", then release it (alternately hold A, then release
                 it). Don't let the gauge overflow.

 FP Cost: 10

 How To Do This: Ultra rank is something that allows you to
                 power your characters up even more powerful

                 head east past the chest in the middle of the
                 room and you'll see a crack. Use Bobbery to

 Reward: Honey Shroom
 How To Do It: To get this side quest completed, head over to
               the Creepy Steeple. Once inside, turn tube mode
               and roll into the area just south of the second
               pillar in the first area of the entire steeple
               (see the Walkthrough section for more details).
               Once you roll into the area just south of the
               second pillar, you'll be in a small room. In
               that small room, grab the book which is a
               Cook Book. Take it to Zess T. to recieve a
               Honey Shroom as a reward. Trouble completed.

 Trouble #30 - Elusive Badge
 Client: ??? (Ms. Mowz)
 Reward: Attack FX B, Ms. Mowz
 How To Do It: To do this final trouble in the Trouble Center,
               head to the top floor of the Rogueport Inn.
               Once there, head west through the door leading
               to the Lovely Howz of Badges (the place where
               you found Garf's housekey). Once there, head
               west and talk to Ms. Mowz who is located on
               the roof a building to the left. She'll tell
               you she wants a Badge, so go to Hooktail's
               Castle. Once there, head to the room where
               you fought and beat Hooktail. Once there,
               head to the middle of the room and you'll
               see an "!" appear above Mario's head. Use
               Flurrie's wind gust to reveal a chest. Open
               it to get an Attack FX B Badge. Once you
               get that, head back to Rogueport and talk
               to Ms. Mowz. She'll join your party and
               give you the Attack FX B Badge you just
               found for her. Not bad. A double reward.
               This section is also included on my
               Walkthrough section as an optional quest.

               Note: After you defeat the Shadow Queen,
                     you can unlock the rest of the
                     troubles.


 Re-Doing Glitzville
 Location: Glitzville (after completing Chapter 3)
 How To Do It: After beating Glitzville in Chapter 3, you can re-DO
               the chapter again, except minus the Grubba, and minus
               the Chapter 3 gizmos. This time, you just fight your
               way up to the ranks like you did before, but the Rawk
               Hawk is back champion again. You can fight the Rawk
               Hawk unlimited times for lots of fun, Coins, AND
               experience. A side quest WELL worth it, I think.


               There. I can't think of any more Side Quests. Please
               e-mail me if you know of any more. I'll gladly add
               them, and gladly credit you in the Version History
               and Credits section of this guide.

 How To Fight Atomic Boo
 Location: Creepy Steeple
 How To Do It: Go to the Creepy Steeple and after opening the chest
               full of 200 Boos, go back to the main room and tell
               the lone Boo you won't be mean to him and make him
               convinced your telling the truth. When he is fully
               convinced, he will summon all his Boo buddies to
               the main room of the steeple. Let the Boos grab you
               and lift you in the air. When they do, hit them with
               your Super Hammer (I do mean Super Hammer) three times
               or so. When you do this, Atomic Boo will form. He's
               not particularly difficult, except at a low level. I
               recommend coming back for him later on in the game.

 How To Do It: To start this Mini-Game off, head to Pianta Parlor.
               "Try to find me!" trouble completed before you can unlock
               this Mini-Game. Pay her 10 Piantas to unlock the game. The
               Silver Card is required for this. Once you pay the 10
               Piantas, you'll be able to play the Airplane Game.
 Cost: 10 Piantas
 Rules: Step on the airplane panel and turn airplane mode. The object
        is to increase your amount of Piantas by landing on certain
        tiles. Don't go for the Piantas that are high in the air.
        as that will mess you up and is not necessary. Instead, move
        the Control Stick "Left" which will enable you, eventually,
        after practicing, to make it past the 400-yard mark. Note:
        Aim for the 2x and 3x tiles, as they will be a great asset
        to help you win this Mini-Game.

 How To Do It: To unlock this Mini-Game, complete the trouble "Help my
               daddy!".

               thing" MUST be fully completed. Once you pay the 10 Pianta
               fee, enjoy your Mini-Game!
 Cost: 10 Piantas
 Rules: Turn into tube mode and roll to the finish line, but be careful
        NOT to fall into the holes. There are also Piantas lying around,
        but they aren't necessary and have nothing to do with the game.


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


 Boat Mode Game
 Location: Pianta Parlor
 How To Do It: To unlock this Mini-Game complete the trouble "I must have
               that book!".

        line first. Good luck.

 The Slots
 Location: Pianta Parlor
 How To Do It: To unlock this FINAL Mini-Game, go to where the Gameboy,
               Lahla, and the High Score is. The Mini-Game is around that
               area. This Mini-Game is automatically unlocked. You don't
               need to unlock it. It's already unlocked. It takes 1 Pianta
               to play. Don't think you can afford it.
 Cost: 1 Pianta
 Rules: Flip the slots and line them up like this: Pianta, Star, and 7.


 That's all the Mini-Games I know of. E-mail me if you know any more
 than these few.

 | 20. FAQs                                                             |

 Here are some questions that have frequently been asked about this game.
 I'll post them here.


 Q: Hey, um...do you know how to get to the Pit of 100 Trials? I know it's
    really lame but I can't find it. I'm really bad at maze stuff. It's all
    a maze to me. Also do you know where Koopook is? How about Pine T. Jr.?

 A: Here's how to get to the Pit of 100 Trials (Po100T): To start the Pit of
    100 Trials off, head to Rogueport Sewers. Once there, head to the room
    with the Thousand Year Door and once you're there, from the entrance of
    the room, slip through the nearby bars you see (e-mail me if you don't
    get it). Once you slip through the bars, jump on the yellow spring. Then,
    get on the airplane panel and then fly onto the platform to the left. Once
    you're on the platform to the left, slip through the next bars via paper
    thin mode. Once you slip through these next bars, you'll be in a new area.
    In this area, head down the pipe leading to the Pit of 100 Trials. Here is
    where you fight the hardest boss of the game, Bonetail, though he is 100%
    optional, so keep that in mind. To get to Koopook, head to Hooktail's Castle
    in the trouble "Try and find me!". In the room with the bridge high above in
    the air (see the Trouble Center section of this guide for more information),
    you'll see a Koopa Troopa. This is Koopook. Walk off the bridge and (walk to
    the left), you should be on the platform where Koopook is. Finally, Pine T.
    Jr. is located in the Pit of 100 Trials in the trouble "Help my daddy!".

 Q: How do I beat the Shadow Queen?

 A: Since BP is overrated, check the Bosses section of this guide for some
    information.

 Q: How do I get the paper thin ability?

 A: In the beginning of the game when Professor Frankly accompanies you in
    Rogueport Sewers during your first visit, in the room with the Spinias,
    you will see a platform to the east that you can't get on. Head up the
    stairs east of that and you will see a room to the north. Enter the
    room and speak with the chest. It'll tell you that it needs a key to
    become free. Exit the room, and head outside. Once outside, head west
    and walk off the platform to drop down onto a platform with a Black Key
    on it. Take the Black Key to the chest and he'll curse you with the
    paper thin ability.

 Q: What is the purpose in the Close Call Badge?

 A: Nothing much. Basic Badge. Mario just has a slight chance of not getting
    hit when he's in his "Danger" state.

 Q: What's this?! I've found a glitchy Badge!

 A: Unfortunately, a lot of gamers on GameFAQs are having trouble with this.
    This can only happen when you have all the 85 Badges there are in the
    game and even then, this glitch isn't guaranteed to happen. I don't
    know how to preform the glitch, so feel free to discuss with gamers on
    GameFAQs, IGN, or Neoseeker message boards.

 Q: How do you get Zess T to cook two or more items?

 A: Complete the Trouble and get her the cookbook in that Trouble (look in the
    Side Quests section of this FAQ with the Trouble Center information and you
    will find this Trouble). After giving her the cookbook, she'll be able to
    make two or more items!

 Thanks to ricksanlv for this information!

 | 21. Codes n' Secrets                                                 |
 |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-|

 Here I will list Codes n' Secrets in this game and how to do them, and
 where they are located.


 Red Bones/Dull Bones Experience Trick
 -------------------------------------

 Code n' Secret #1
 Location: Hooktail's Castle
 How To Do It: This one is more of a trick than a secret or a code. First
 of all, this can only happen when you fight the Red Bones that accompanies
 the Dull Bones. Okay, so this is how you do it: when you fight the Red
 Bones, don't kill him. Just keep killing the Dull Bones and don't damage
 the Red Bones, just keep attacking the Dull Bones and the Red Bones will
 keep building more Dull Bones, so keep killing the Dull Bones and you'll
 get Star Points each time you kill the Dull Bones. Get it? Just keep
 killing all the Dull Bones and let the Red Bones rebuild them and you can
 gain quite a good bit of experience in this fight. Take note you can ONLY
 do this trick in Hooktail's Castle and ONLY in the battle with the Red
 Bones and the Dull Bones. This trick is very useful if you want a quick
 level up while on your way through the dungeon.


 Bullet Bill/Bombshell Bill Experience Trick
 -------------------------------------------

 Code n' Secret #2
 Location: Wherever Bullet Bills/Bombshell Bills are
 How To Do It: To do this code n' secret, when fighting Bullet Bills or
               Bombshell Bills (only works if they're with their leaders,
               the Bill Blaster, and the B. Bill Blaster, as they can
               just spit out an unlimited amount of them.), let the
               Bill Blasters or the B. Bill Blasters, whichever one is
               with the Bullet Bills or Bombshell Bills, spit out a
               Bullet Bill or a Bombshell Bill. Kill the one the cannons
               spit out. Then, let them spit out another one. Then, kill
               it. Keep doing this as much and/or long as desired. This
               is the same exact thing in Hooktail's Castle with the Red
               Bones, except with different enemies.


 Bow In Poshley Heights
 ----------------------

 Code n' Secret #3
 Location: Poshley Height
 How To Do It: After completing the game, head to Poshley Heights. Once
               there, head to the area with the sanctum. You'll see Bow
               from Paper Mario 1 in front of the sanctum with her butler.
               This is more of a cameo than anything else, but hey, it's
               still a secret, right?


 Jr. Troopa In Zip Toad's E-Mail
 -------------------------------

 Code n' Secret #4
 Location: Zip Toad's E-Mail
 How To Do It: To do this one, when Zip Toad sends you the e-mail, pay
               close attention to the picture of Zip Toad and you'll see
               an object in the sky. This is Jr. Troopa from Paper Mario
               1. Another cameo.

 It gets very annoying after a while to have to sit here and respond to e-mails
 about things that are already blatantly answered in this FAQ. So the bottom

 usually respond to question already answered in this FAQ anyway, just the way
 I am, but that doesn't mean I like those e-mails).

 Nintendo: For making such a fun game.

 Nintendo Power Strategy Guide: I looked at a strategy guide from Nintendo
                                Power and got some information on enemies
                                and bosses I hadn't encountered in the
                                game. Not to mention their Attack, Defense,
                                HP, and how they attack and/or defend I also
