    ===============
    
    Welcome to my Third FAQ! this one is to help you beat the bosses that will come 
    your way in Super Mario 64. Now some of these bosses are small, and aren't 
    really "bosses" but are included anyway. and others are most peoples idea of a 
    boss. I.E. Bowser. SO i included any kind of boss i could to this FAQ. I hope it 
    is of some use to you, enjoy!

    2. Bosses FAQ
    =============
    
    Course 1: Bomb-Omb Battlefield 
                       
    Boss 1: King Bomb-Omb
    To beat king bomb-omb you must pick him up and throw him to the ground three 
    times, without getting throw around yourself by him. all you need to do is 
    somehow get behind him, and pick him up. then just throw him down on the ground! 
    do this Three times and hem is defeated! Note: do not throw him off the 
    mountain, or onto the trail, he will call you a cheater and it won't count as a 
    hit!
    
    Boss 2: Koopa The Quick
    Shouldn't he be Koopa The Slow? all you need to beat him is a time of 1 minute 
    30 seconds or less! pretty easy! select star 2 to race him. to beat him easy, 
    use the warps in the flower beds, and in the alcoves in the mountain!
    
    Course 2: Whomp's Fortress
    
    Boss 1: Big Whomp Guy(Name?)
    Here is a sure-fire way to beat this guy every time! ok, stand right underneath 
    him, and the second he falls forward and tries to crush you, run between his 
    legs, the butt-slam on the "X" on his back! Repeat 3 times to kill him! 
    Simple....Onto Level 3.....
    
    Course 3: Jolly Roger Bay
    
    Boss 1: Can The Eel Come Out To Play?
    Not really a boss, but oh well, just go to the very bottom, lure him out of his 
    little home area cove, place and grab the star off his tail. If you would like 
    to make this somewhat challenging but still not that hard try doing this in your 
    sleep.
    
    Course 4: Cool Cool Mountain
    
    Boss 1: Race the penguin
    Ok, go down the chimmeney after you select star 3, then talk to the penguin. he 
    will ask you to race him! say yes! to beat him, you need to be holding forward 
    on the control stick as much as possible! get ahead of him early and it should 
    be easy! Now tlak to him and get the star! Note: you cannot use the shortcut, he 
    will call you a cheater and give you nothing!
    
    Course 5: Big Boo's Haunt
    Boss 1: Big Boo
    Ok, destroy all of the boo's then go to the main area. there will be a huge 
    ghost there! punch it three times(extremly easy) to beat him! now go get the 
    star and get ready for Big Boo 2!
    
    Boss 2: Big Boo's Carousel
    Make your way to the merry-go-round in the basement AFTER beating big boo, there 
    will now be ghosts there, kill them and, what? another big boo to fight? will 
    appear, as you did last time, hit it 3 times and it will be gone. If you ask me 
    this is all extremly easy.
    
    Course 6: Hazy Maze Cave
    -No Bosses In This Level!-
    
    Course 7: Leathal Lava Land
    Boss 1: Boil The Bully
    Allright, finally something with a bit of challenge to it! ok, to beat this guy 
    all you need to do is hit him into the lava! much easier than it sounds i will 
    tell ya! the best way is to butt-slam him once, then, a series of punches. this 
    should topple him, now go run accross the falling platforms to collect your 
    star!
    
    Boss 2: Boil The Bullies
    Ok, now go to the other island, boil the 3 small bullies, big one appears, you 
    get the idea, beat 3 small ones, beat the big one, get the star, wake up from 
    your sleep-videogaming trance, move on to course 8....
    
    Course 8: Shifting Sand Land
    Boss 1: Vulture
    See that vulture flying above the sky? give him a good kick, and he will cough 
    up a star!
    Is it just me or do these bosses get easier as the levels go on?
    
    Boss 2: The 2 Hands
    Ok i was wrong, they get harder, at least this one does! this is a fun boss, 
    just punch the one hand that is vulnerable while the other one tries to attack 
    you. not much other advice, this could take 2 tries possiblly! oh yah to get to 
    this boss, stomp on the 4 pillars, then go down the hole that is on top of the 
    now demolished pyramid.
    
    Course 9: Dire Dire Docks
    -No Bosses In This Level!-
    
    Course 10: Wet-Dry World
    -No Bosses In This Level!-
    
    Course 11: Tall-Tall Mountain
    Boss 1: That Dang Monkey(Name?)
    Ok, star 2, top of mountain, just catch him, he will open a cage which has a 
    star. Now that you've beaten this stupid chimp, go eat a bannana!
    
    Course 12: Snowman's Land
    Boss 1: Freeze The Ice Bully
    this is just like the lava guy, same thing, only easier, just what you needed, 
    an easier boss! topple this guy and proceed to level 13....
    
    Course 13: Tiny-Huge Island
    Boss 1: Pluck The Pihrana Flower
    as small Mario go to the single island next to where you start, fight 5 huge 
    pihrana plants, hit each one once to beat this boss! now get the star and put on 
    your running shoes for....
    
    Boss 2: Rematch With Koopa The Quick
    another race with dough-boy, beat him again to get the star. to beat him just 
    long jump all the way until you reach te bridge, then just run accross for 
    victory!
    
    Course 14: Tick Tock Clock
    
    Boss 1: Stomp The Thwomp
    Again not really a boss, you don't even have to defeat him, just domp ON him, 
    then past him to the star!
    
    Course 15: Rainbow Ride
    -No Bosses In This Level!-
    
    End Of 8 Star Door: Bowser 1
    Ok, this is easy, VERY easy, pick him up, throw him about 3 inches towards a 
    bomb, now run pick him up again, throw him 3 inches, repeat..once he hits the 
    bomb he will be toast, yes it only takes 1 hit!
    
    End Of 30 Star Door: Bowser 2
    to beat him, do the same thing as you did for Bowser 1, only difference here is 
    he has new moves, not too much more difficult however.
    
    End Of 70 Star Door: Bowser 3
    ok, this time he's bigger, rainbow colered, and takes 3 hits. I will leave you 
    to beat him on your own, since he's the last boss. all i will say is do the same 
    thing as you have on the past 2 bowsers, and be prepared for much more! good 
    luck!
    
    The End: well if you've beaten Bowser 3, then you've beaten the game! 
    congrats!!! now enjoy the cheesy ending!
