Version 1.5 (4/5/12): Made a couple more recipe corrections.

Version 1.45 (3/21/12): Corrected a few recipes, as well as a wrong word 
(mushrooms, not bushes) in part of the Forever Forest area.

Version 1.4 (12/20/10): After so many years, I have revisited this FAQ and 
cleaned up the formatting (eliminating large paragraphs and so on). I also 
updated the recipes for the Life Shroom and Volt Shroom, and added 
information about when each set of Chuck Quizmo questions become available 
during the course of the game, thanks to user submissions!

Version 1.3 (6/2/01): I corrected an error about the Koopa Leaf and the 
amount of FP it recovers, thanks to VGMaster96(at)aol.com!

Version 1.25 (5/27/01): Sorry for the lack of updates for the past 2 months, 
but I finally got around to playing and defeating the Master for the final 
time, which means I have information on that battle included in this guide 
now! Also, this guide is basically complete, but feel free to send me 
anything you would like to add!

Version 1.2 (3/25/01): This is possibly the final update I'm going to make to 
this FAQ, as it's totally complete as of now. Anyway, I added a Mini-Games 
section here, as you can see.

Version 1.15 (3/19/01): Here, I finally added all the recipe listings, major 
thanks to IGN Guides for that part! I wouldn't be able to get a complete list 
like that without them, I mean it!

Version 1.1 (3/18/01): With this update, I finally added the full list of 
Chuck Quizmo's quiz questions to the guide! Also, to make them easier to find 
(and to make the Secrets section less cluttered), I put them into a separate 
section of the guide altogether.

Version 1.0 (3/13/01): Well, the walkthrough is finally complete! Now that 
that's done, I am going to work on the other little sections and finish up 
the guide completely!

Version 0.9 (3/5/01): Now, the walkthrough covers just up to the entrance of 
Bowser's Castle in Chapter 8! Next update will most likely finish up the 
walkthrough, then after that I'll go back and add whatever I missed (Badges, 
Star Pieces, Quizmo Questions, Recipes, and so on).

Version 0.85 (3/4/01): This pretty small update just includes a walkthrough 
update up to the entrance of the Crystal Palace. I also added several other 
things here and there as well. Next update or so will be the one to make the 
walkthrough complete!

Version 0.8 (3/3/01): This one is a pretty large update from before. The 
guide covers all the way to the beginning of Chapter 7, and there is lots of 
other bits of information added in other sections, so that also added to the 
large update here!

Version 0.7 (3/1/01): This update has a walkthrough all the way up to the 
beginning of Flower Fields in Chapter 6! In another day or so, I'll have 
another big update with all this and more completed!

Version 0.6 (2/25/01): For the second update today, I have completed all of 
Chapter 4, and started on Chapter 5! There is still a bit more to add, so 
check out the next update for more here!

Version 0.5 (2/25/01): The walkthrough now has information leading all the 
way to the start of Chapter 4! I've also added a good portion of information 
in other sections of the guide as well here.

Version 0.4 (2/23/01): As of now, this guide covers all of Chapter 2, as well 
as a good amount of Chapter 3. There is still ALOT more to add, so check the 
next update for many more additions!

Version 0.3 (2/19/01): The walkthrough now covers up to the Dry Dry Ruins. 
There wasn't too much of a update to the walkthrough here, but I did add a 
bit to the other sections to make up for it!

Version 0.2 (2/16/01): This update includes a walkthrough all the way through 
Chapter 1. I've also added a few other things here and there, as you may see 
when you look around.

Version 0.15 (2/14/01): I got a bit of an update for today here! The 
walkthrough covers up to the Koopa Bros. Fortress, but I also added quite a 
bit of information on the other sections of the guide as well. Next update 
will have a bigger chunk of the walkthrough included!

Version 0.1 (2/11/01): The first version of this FAQ was started. It has the 
first areas of the game covered so far, but look for much more to be added 
soon!

-=  2. Introduction -=
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Mario is back on the Nintendo 64 after all these years for the "sequel" to 
the original Super Mario RPG for the SNES. This game takes on more of a 2-
dimensional appearance this time around, since the game takes place in a 3D 
world with 2D characters. There are many new items and features to be taken 
advantage of in this game as well. It's definitely worth getting, and I 
highly recommend it, too!

*****************************************************************************

-=  3. Story  -=
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Far, far away beyond the sky, way above the clouds, it's been said that there 
was a haven where the Stars lived.

In the sanctuary of Star Haven there rested a fabled treasure called the Star 
Rod, which had the power to grant all wishes. Using this wondrous Star Rod, 
the seven revered Star Spirits watched over our peaceful world carefully... 
very carefully.

Then one day, a terrible thing happened... The evil King Bowser appeared in 
Star Haven and stole the Star Rod! Using its incredible power he quickly 
imprisoned the seven Star Spirits!

Completely unaware of the trouble in far-off Star Haven, Mario was back home 
in the Mushroom Kingdom, eagerly reading a letter from Princess Peach. It was 
an invitation to a party at the castle! With much anticipation, he and his 
brother Luigi set off for the party, oblivious to the chaos that lay ahead...

================
General Gameplay
================

In this game, you control Mario with the Control Stick as you move around the 
world. If you engage an enemy in your travels, you will enter battle (see 
below). Normally, you can interact with the environment by jumping and using 
your Hammer (such as hitting trees and blocks), as well as pressing A when 
you see a red "!" to make something happen (such as searching bushes or 
opening doors). You will see a square tab at the edge of the current area; 
walk onto it to reach the connecting region, the next room, etc.


=====
Towns
=====

The main hub is Toad Town; from here you can reach every other area of the 
game. In every town, there are two types of buildings: Toad Houses (mushroom 
sign) and Shops (fire flower sign). You can rest in Toad Houses for free, 
fully recovering your HP/FP and Star Power. In shops, you can buy and sell 
items, and even have the clerk hold onto items you don't want to carry around 
with you (Mario can carry a maximum of 10 items at once, so it makes sense to 
store the better items you don't want to use early in the game).

In Toad Town, there are two shops. There are also other areas unique to this 
town you can check out, such as the Dojo and Post Office.


======
Battle
======

As you move around the world, you will see enemies along the way, who will 
attempt to attack you to initiate battle. This allows you to avoid the enemy 
(and thus the battle) or actively seek out enemies to fight and gain 
experience. You can gain (or lose) an advantage in the pending battle 
depending on how you approach the enemy:

    First Strike: Attack the enemy first by jumping/using the Hammer, giving
                  you an extra attack on the front enemy in battle.
    Neutral: Approach the enemy with neither side attacking.
    Enemy Strike: The enemy successfully attacks you on the map, allowing
                  them to attack first in battle.

In battle, each side takes turns attacking, with Mario and his current 
partner acting before the enemies do. The battle system relies heavily on 
timed attacks, known as action commands, meaning you can inflict more/take 
less damage if you press the A button at the right time when attacking or 
being attacked. Usually there will be an on-screen prompt to help you with 
this when attacking. As for defending against attacks, you need to press A at 
the right time when an enemy is about to hit you or otherwise finish their 
attack. If done successfully, you will take less damage than usual.

Depending on the enemy being faced, Mario's available attacks may vary. For 
instance, with flying enemies, you can not use the Hammer. Also, when 
attacking with a ground-based character, you can attack the front enemy of 
the pack only. Flying characters (like Parakarry) can target any enemy). 
Certain Badges will help with this, of course.

Your partner does not have their own HP bar. That said, if they are hit by an 
enemy attack, they will be unable to act for a set number of turns in battle, 
depending on the damage taken. You can switch your partner during battle, but 
it wastes a turn (unless you have a certain Badge equipped).

When you defeat an enemy, it will yield Star Points (experience points). The 
exact amount depends on Mario's current level compared to the enemy. 
Eventually you will gain nothing by defeating weaker enemies, which forces 
you to advance in the game in order to continue gaining levels. For every 100 
Star Points gained, Mario gains a level. This will automatically restore his 
HP, FP, and Star Power. As an added bonus, Mario can gain an added boost in 
HP, FP, or Badge Points (BP, needed to equip Badges). The maximum level Mario 
can attain is Level 27 with a maximum base of 50 HP, 50 FP, and 30 BP.

When the battle scene ends, you will return to the map screen and coins/items 
will be dropped by the defeated enemy. If you ran from the battle, you may 
drop some coins and remain invulnerable for a couple of moments.


==========
Star Power
==========

Throughout the game, you will see a special rainbow-colored meter on your 
status screen. This is the Star Power meter, and you need this in order to 
use the Star Spirits' abilities (more on those in the Star Spirit Powers 
section of the guide). After every round of battle, you will automatically 
regain a slight amount of power on this meter. The amount recovered can be 
increased by equipping Deep Focus Badges. When the star icon at the end of a 
section of the meter is lit up, it means you have a full Star Power unit to 
use.

The only way to recover Star Power is to use the Focus command in battle, or 
rest in a Toad House. You also fully recover this power when Mario gains an 
experience level.

=====
Mario
=====

Obviously, Mario is the 2D hero of this game, hence the game's title! Armed 
with his trusty Hammer and his famous Jump attack, he's ready to take on the 
baddies all throughout this game!

Mario's Moves
-------------

Hammer: In battle, Mario can use his trusty hammer to attack. There are more
        moves you can do with the Hammer, depending on the badges you have
        equipped. To attack with the Hammer, hold Left on the Control Stick
        until the circle flashes, then release to attack.

Jump: As in the other Mario games, he uses a Jump attack as well. The types
      of these jumps that can be performed depend on the badges you have as
      well. Before you land on the enemy, press A again to jump on them again
      to cause extra damage.

Star Powers: As you free the Star Spirits, Mario will be able to use Star
             Powers in battle, provided there is enough power in the star
             meter. There is another section in this guide that focuses on
             those attacks, so look in there if you need help.


=========
Goombario
=========

This mushroom kid is the first partner Mario has in his adventure. From the 
start, Goombario is a useful character to have on your team with his unique 
ability to tell you any enemy's stats on the spot. If you press C-Down with 
Goombario as your current partner, he'll talk to you about the current area 
and what you should do next.

Goombario's Moves
-----------------

Headbonk: Goombario uses his head to hit an enemy from above. Press A before
          landing to hit the enemy a second time. Beware that you don't use
          this on enemies with spikes on their heads or you'll take some
          damage!

Tattle: Perhaps his most useful move is this one. Use this on any enemy or
        boss to determine their HP, as well as their attack and defense
        levels. You'll also receive a hint on how to deal with that enemy, so
        pay attention when you use this move!

Charge: When used in battle, and at the cost of 1 FP, Goombario can raise his
        attack power by 2 points for the next round in that battle. This is
        definitely useful when you want Goombario to help finish off a tough
        enemy fast!

Multibonk: This move is basically the same as the regular Headbonk, but it
           can be performed many consecutive times until you miss the action
           command. It costs 3 FP per use.


======
Kooper
======

This shelled character is the second person to join Mario's party. His Shell 
Toss ability, which can be used outside battle (press C-Down), can be 
extremely useful when reaching far away items, switches, etc. He's definitely 
a great asset to your crew!

Kooper's Moves
--------------

Shell Toss: When used in battle, Kooper hides inside his shell and spins
            towards an enemy, causing some damage. Use this move just like
            you would Mario's Hammer attack; pull back on the Control Stick
            to charge up, then release to attack.

Power Shell: This is basically a more powerful and effective version of the
             Shell Toss. Instead of hitting only one enemy, it hits all the
             enemies in a row. However, it costs 3 FP each time you use this
             attack.

Dizzy Shell: As its name implies, Kooper attempts to paralyze the enemies
             with this attack. Costing 4 FP per use, press A repeatedly to
             build up the chances of paralyzing the enemies when you hit. If
             you're successful, those enemies won't be able to move for a few
             rounds.

Fire Shell: This strong ability has Kooper spinning in his shell to attack
            the enemy with a fiery blaze. The action command is to press Left
            on the Control Stick repeatedly to charge the meter. It costs 5
            FP each time you use this.


========
Bombette
========

This pink Bob-omb is your third companion after you help it escape from the 
cell in the Koopa Bros. Fortress. Her main use is to blow open holes in 
cracked walls and other weak objects.

Bombette's Moves
----------------

Body Slam: As the name implies, Bombette rams herself into an enemy to
           attack. Charge it up by holding A until the meter becomes full and
           the circle flashes, then release to attack.

Bomb: Her signature move allows her to explode, causing a good amount of
      damage to the enemies she hits. To use effectively, press A as fast as
      you can to fill the meter to the 100% mark; that way, the attack is at
      its strongest point when used.

Power Bomb: This is a much more powerful version of her Bomb ability.
            Although this one costs 6 FP per use, she can explode, causing
            great amounts of damage to all enemies on the ground.

Mega Bomb: This is basically a much stronger version of the Power Bomb, but
           this one can hit all enemies on the screen as opposed to just
           those on the ground. It costs 8 FP per use, and you must press A
           repeatedly really fast to build up the action command meter.

=========
Parakarry
=========

This Paratroopa delivers mail all around the Mushroom Kingdom. You bump into 
him at Mt. Rugged, where he happens to have lost some Letters. His 
contribution to the group is the ability to carry Mario over small gaps, so 
this guy will prove to be very useful throughout the game.

Parakarry's Moves
-----------------

Sky Dive: With this, Parakarry basically rams into the enemy from within his
          shell in mid-air. Press A before making contact to cause extra
          damage.

Shell Shot: This move allows Parakarry to rocket into an enemy at high speed,
            causing a good amount of damage. The action command for this one
            is unique as well. To use, hold Left on the Control Stick while
            the crosshair line moves up and down. Line it up with the blue
            target surrounding the enemy you picked, then release to rocket
            into the target.

Air Lift: When used, Parakarry will attempt to carry a single enemy out of
          the battle, giving you that much less to deal with. It costs 3 FP
          per use, and you must press A repeatedly to increase your chances
          of being successful. Also, note that it doesn't work on spiked
          enemies.

Air Raid: For this Ultra move, Parakarry flies all over the screen, hitting
          all enemies on the screen. This move is similar to the Shell Shot,
          but it hits every enemy, and it uses 6 FP instead. For the action
          command, hit Left on the Control Stick repeatedly to charge it up.


===
Bow
===

This ghost lives in Boo's Mansion, and asks for Mario's help to defeat Tubba 
Blubba. Her abilities can prove to be very useful, especially since she can 
turn you and herself transparent outside of battle to avoid being seen by 
anything.

Bow's Moves
-----------

Slap: This generic move allows this ghost to slap the enemy several times.
      When used, keep pressing Left on the Control Stick repeatedly to build
      up power. The more you press to the Left, the more power the attack is.

Outta Sight: This special move allows Bow to make Mario transparent in battle
             for a round of battle. This costs 2 FP per use, and it prevents
             enemies from hitting you since they can't see you.

Spook: This move allows Bow to really scare the hell out of the enemies, and
       even make them run away scared! It costs 3 FP per use, and you execute
       it by pressing Left on the Control Stick repeatedly to build up the
       meter. The more you build it up, the higher your chances of scaring
       away the enemies are.

Fan Smack: The Ultra Rank move that Bow learns is her most powerful one,
           obviously. She uses her fan to smack the hell out of the enemy you
           targeted. For the action command, push the Control Stick to the
           Left repeatedly really fast to build up the meter. It also costs 5
           FP each time you use this attack.


====
Watt
====

This light from the Big Lantern Ghost's lamp is the next friend you'll meet 
in the Shy Guy's Toy Box. Her ability to light up rooms and reveal hidden 
chests is quite helpful and useful as well. Her electrical attacks are also 
good to use in battle, too.

Watt's Moves
------------

Electro Dash: With this, Watt charges up her electrical power as you hold
              down A until the meter becomes full. After you let go, Watt
              will electrocute the enemy and lower their defenses as well.

Power Shock: Here, Watt uses her electrical power to paralyze a single enemy.
             You must press A repeatedly to build up the chances of this move
             working, though. It also costs 2 FP per use.

Turbo Charge: With this move, Watt will use her electrical powers to boost
              Mario's attack power temporarily. When the meter appears, press
              A when the red circles light up to use it. Also, it costs 3 FP
              each time you use this.

Mega Shock: Watt will be able to paralyze all enemies with this ability. It
            costs 5 FP per use, and for the action command, you must press A
            and B together repeatedly to fill up the meter, increasing the
            effectiveness of the move.


======
Sushie
======

Your seventh partner in this quest is in the form of a fish. Her specialty is 
that you can swim on the water by pressing C-Down when standing on the edge 
of the wooden docks near the water. While in the water, you can press/hold C-
Down again to dive for a short time.

Sushie's Moves
--------------

Belly Flop: For this move, Sushie does a belly flop on the enemy's head. Pull
            Left on the Control Stick to charge up, then release when the red
            circle lights up to do the attack. As always, the power of the
            attack depends on how much you charge it.

Squirt: This is a pretty good attack, although the action command for it is
        pretty annoying to perform. This shoots a stream of water at the
        enemy, and it costs 3 FP per use. For the action command, hold A to
        fill up the bar, but don't let it go all the way. When it almost
        reaches the end, start tapping A to keep it near the end until the
        move is performed.
Water Block: Sushie creates a protective shield around Mario, temporarily
             raising his defense. It costs 3 FP per use, and to charge it,
             you must press A each time a red circle is lit up on the meter.
             The shield only lasts for a limited time, however.

Tidal Wave: For her Ultra move, Sushie makes a massive tidal wave to attack
            all enemies on the screen. It costs 6 FP per use, and you must
            press B, A, or C-Down in the order they show up on the screen in
            order to make this move powerful.


==========
Lakilester
==========

This "good" Lakitu is the final partner you'll meet in your quest. His 
ability to fly in his cloud will be very useful, especially when crossing 
spike pits and other hazardous areas on the ground. Also, you can float for 
an unlimited amount of time as well, so that's another good thing.

Lakilester's Moves
------------------

Spiny Flip: Lakilester throws a Spiny Egg at the enemy to cause damage here.
            The action command is pretty annoying and hard to control,
            though. The blue cursor stays on the target, and you have a few
            seconds to align the other cursor with the blue one before
            Lakilester throws the Spiny Egg. It's either a win-or-lose
            situation here with this move.

Spiny Surge: For this move, Lakilester throws a barrage of Spiny Eggs at all
             the enemies on the screen. Pull the Control Stick to the left
             repeatedly to use the action command, therefore raising the
             amount of damage taken with this attack. However, it costs 4 FP
             each time you use it.

Cloud Nine: When used, Lakilester encases Mario in a cloud, protecting him
            from enemy attacks. For the action command, press A when the red
            circles on the meter light up. This uses 4 FP, and it lasts for
            only a few rounds.

Hurricane: This Ultra move can have the power to blow some enemies out of the
           current battle if successful. It costs 5 FP per use, and you must
           press A and B together repeatedly to charge it up. The more you
           charge up, it increases the chances of this move being successful.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

============
Introduction
============

The game opens outside Mario and Luigi's house, when Parakarry delivers a 
letter to them. Luigi picks up the letter and brings it inside, then reads it 
to Mario. It's an invitation to a party at Princess Peach's castle. The two 
leave the house and head through town, then finally arrive at the castle. 
After a short talk, you'll gain control of Mario. So, head straight up the 
stairs and through the big door to the next room. Go left and up some more 
steps, then continue into the next room. Continue through the next couple of 
rooms until you meet up with Princess Peach.

After a conversation with Peach, the ground outside will start shaking and a 
giant castle will come out of the ground and carry Peach's castle high into 
the sky. Bowser and his assistant then appear and taunt Mario. After that, 
you'll enter battle against Bowser. Just keep using the Jump attack to hurt 
him until Bowser uses the Star Rod and defeats you with his fiery breath 
(it's impossible to win this battle, by the way). When the battle ends, he'll 
knock you out of the castle, and you'll land in a forest below.


===============================
Prologue: A Plea from the Stars
===============================

When you land in the forest, the 7 Star Spirits will appear and attempt to 
revive Mario while he's unconscious. They'll disappear and a Goomba will find 
Mario in the forest. It'll call for help, and the scene will end.


Goomba Village
--------------

When the scene opens again, Mario will be lying in a bed in a small house. A 
Star Spirit, Eldstar, will appear again and tell you to meet it at the 
Shooting Star Summit. After that, it'll disappear and Mario will finally wake 
up. Toad will then enter the house and talk for a few moments, and then he'll 
suggest you pay the Goombas a visit. So, go left and exit this house. Talk to 
the Goomba children, then go right and enter the larger building.

Talk to Gooma (the grandmother) inside, and then go through the door in the 
back to reach the veranda. Talk to Goompa (the grandfather), then go back 
inside and head left and down to exit the house. Go right and use the Save 
Block if you like, then talk to the father Goomba standing by the gate. After 
he tells you where to go, Kammy Koopa will fly in. She'll drop a giant block 
on the gate, then fly away. Since you can't get around it, the Goomba father 
will ask you to retrieve the hammer the grandfather was using to fix the 
veranda.

Go left and back into the large building again. Inside, go right and up 
through the back door to the veranda. There is nothing out there, so you'll 
fall down to the area below, which is Jr. Troopa's Playground.


Jr. Troopa's Playground
-----------------------

When you land, go right and down, then talk to Goompa. He says that there's 
no way back to the house for now since the path is blocked. Mario asks about 
using the hammer, but Goompa says it's lost somewhere, so he'll follow you 
around to help look for it. Follow the path left to the next area, then 
Goompa will tell you to check in the bushes to find it.

Go behind each bush and press A when the exclamation point appears to shake 
out whatever is in the branches. Collect the coins that you find, and 
continue searching until you eventually shake out the Hammer. Now, destroy 
the blocks on the ground and hit the trees with the Hammer (press B). You 
should get a Dolly by hitting one of the trees. Then, take the path right 
to get out of this area.

Goompa will run ahead, but gets stopped by the Jr. Troopa. You'll then enter 
a battle against it. Read the Bosses section for some quick help on defeating 
it. After the battle, continue right to the next area. Here, head right and 
destroy the large block with the Hammer, and the tree next to it to get a 
Mushroom. Then, destroy some more blocks in the area. Hit the block with the 
heart inside to recover your health, then bounce on the trampoline nearby to 
reach the higher ledge.

Collect the Fire Flower, then jump back down and go right to the next area. 
There, go right along the path and defeat the Goombas and Spiked Goombas 
along the way. When you can go up, jump to the higher ledge and go left and 
up to the top. Once there, go left and collect a Star Piece. Now, head all 
the way right and continue along the path to the next area, which is Goomba 
Village.


Goomba Village
--------------

Back in the Goomba Village, go right and open the locked gate. Then, the 
children will all great Goompa. He'll run inside to get something for you. 
Goombario will talk to you for a moment, and then Goompa will come back out 
and give you the Power Jump Badge. After that, he'll tell Goombario to 
accompany you on your journey, so you'll now have a second party member! 
Before you do anything else, talk to Goombaria and give her the Dolly you 
found to get a Star Piece.

Now, equip the Power Jump Badge on Mario and save your game via the nearby 
Save Block. Then, go right and destroy the large block in your way. With the 
path cleared, head right and out of the Goomba Village.


Goomba Road
-----------

Upon starting along the path to Toad Town, head right and read the sign along 
the road. Defeat the Goomba that jumps off it to attack, then continue right 
and defeat those enemies as well. Jump up and hit the blocks to get a few 
coins, then continue going right into the next area. There, go right and 
defeat a Spiked Goomba. After that, jump up and hit the block you come across 
to get the Close Call Badge. Be sure to equip this one right away!

Continue right and read the sign, then grab the Mushroom that falls from it. 
Go right some more and defeat a Paragoomba, and then hit the Heart Block to 
recover your HP/FP. Now, head right into the next scene. In this scene, go 
right towards the trampoline and the Goomba Bros. will appear on the high 
ledge. They'll talk for a moment before jumping down to engage in battle with 
you. Read the Bosses section for help on defeating them.

After you win (you should've gained a level by now), they'll run away scared! 
So, go right and save with the Save Block, then jump on the nearby trampoline 
to reach the high ledge. Now, go right into the next area. Here, read the 
sign with the picture of a mushroom on it. Defeat the Goomba that jumps off 
the sign, then head right to the following area to reach King Goomba's 
Fortress.


King Goomba's Fortress
----------------------

When you arrive here, you'll see a short scene where the Red and Blue Goombas 
are running to the fort after their defeat. They whine to the Goomba King, 
and then all three of them come outside to meet your group. You'll then enter 
a battle against these guys, so read the Bosses section for help on beating 
them quickly. After that battle, the three will retreat to the inside of the 
fortress, leaving you outside.

So, go up to the tree nearby and hit it with the Hammer to get a Star Piece. 
Then, go to the locked door of the fortress and hit A to listen in on their 
conversation inside. They'll hint at a hidden switch outside the fortress. 
Check behind the light-colored bush near the entrance to the fortress to make 
a switch pop out. Hit the switch and the Goomba King will freak out since you 
already hit it. The fortress will then come apart and form a bridge across 
the chasm behind it, and the Goomba King will be sent VERY far away!

Now that that's over, go through the fortress and cross the bridge to reach 
the area at the other end. There, continue right to reach the next area. At 
this point, you'll see Kammy Koopa spying on you before she flies away. You 
will also be given the option to save if you'd like. After you're done with 
that, you'll view a scene of Kammy Koopa returning to Bowser's flying castle.

There will be a conversation between the two about Goomba King's defeat, and 
about the Star Rod's powers. They will then talk about the Star Spirits and 
how they're being guarded, then they'll mention something about the Koopa 
Bros. guarding the first one. At that point, the Koopa Bros. will appear and 
demonstrate their special attack for Bowser, which you aren't allowed to see 
yet. After realizing noone's guarding the Star Spirit, the Koopa Bros. leave 
and the scene ends.

Now that you're back in control of Mario, head right and down the hill to the 
bottom. Then, go left and hit the block to get a Sleepy Sheep. Now, continue 
right a little bit to where the actual path begins. Hit the tree in the 
background with the Hammer to make a trampoline fall out of its branches. Use 
it to bounce to the roof covering the path, then open the chest to get the 
Hammer Throw Badge. After that, go back left and drop down to the ground, 
then continue all the way right to Toad Town.


Toad Town
---------

When you enter this town for the first time, Toad will come up to you and 
talk for a moment. After he's done, start by going around and talking to the 
people wandering around. Also, be sure to stop by the Item Shop (has a flower 
sign next to the door) and buy some Honey Syrup and Mushrooms since you'll 
need them! When you're done here, go back outside and go left to find a green 
pipe (it's near the entrance to the town). Go down the pipe to warp back to 
Mario's house.


Mario and Luigi's House
-----------------------

When you arrive here, Luigi will greet you and tell you how he was worried 
because of that earthquake. After he's done talking, go inside the house and 
rest in Mario's bed if you like. Otherwise, go back down the pipe and return 
to Toad Town.


Toad Town
---------

When you get back here, go right along the path all the way to the next area. 
Go up into the grass to the left of the building with the spinning roof, then 
hit the tree with the Hammer to get another Star Piece. Then, continue right 
to the center area of town. At that point, head north along the road and go 
through the large blue gate at the end. Follow the path up and right past 
where the castle was supposed to be, then continue right to the following 
area. Here, continue right along the path and take the upper route to reach 
the Shooting Star Summit.


Shooting Star Summit
--------------------

When you enter this area, head left and collect the Star Piece you find 
there. Then, go back to the right and start jumping from ledge to ledge to 
get up the hill to the very top. Once you reach the summit, go straight to 
the Star Spirit waiting for you. Talk to the elder spirit and the other 
spirits will appear around you. They'll all tell you the story about the Star 
Rod and what Bowser did.

After their story is over, you'll be given the option to save your game 
again. Do what you will, then the scene will shift up to the castle in the 
sky. It'll show Princess Peach wishing for help before Bowser and Kammy enter 
the room and taunt her for a moment. After they leave, a small star will 
knock on the door leading outside and Peach will let it in. It'll then 
introduce itself as Twink, and will grant her wishes. Since Twink can't 
handle granting big wishes yet, Peach asks it to bring Mario the Lucky Star 
and to tell him she's safe. After Twink leaves, the scene will then shift 
back down to Mario.

When you gain control again, head left down the path to leave the area when 
Twink will suddenly crash into you from the sky. It'll give you the Lucky 
Star, which allows you to use the "action command" in battle. Choose to watch 
the demonstration if you want, then Magikoopa will appear to bother you. 
Engage in battle with this guy, so check out the Bosses section for quick 
strategy on winning here.

After this, Twink will leave and you'll be left to go about on your 
adventure. So, go left through the next couple areas and get back to Toad 
Town.


Toad Town
---------

When you pass through the blue gates again, Toad will meet you and say that 
Merlon is looking for you. So, go down and left to the house with the 
spinning roof and knock on the door a few times. You have to do that a few 
times to get him to open up. After he lets you in, he'll tell you a long and 
boring story which Mario falls asleep listening to. After Merlon is done, 
he'll tell you to head to the Koopa Bros. Fortress.

Now, leave the house and go right, then enter the Toad House (the one with 
the mushroom sign hanging above the door). Rest here to recover your HP/FP, 
then leave the house and save your game. After that, go right along the path 
and you'll encounter a group of dark-colored Toads that won't let you pass. 
So, go back to Merlon's place and talk to him about it.

Merlon will leave the house, so follow him outside and right towards those 
dark Toads again. Talk to Merlon and he'll make them reveal their true forms. 
They happen to be the Koopa Bros. in disguise. They retreat, leaving the path 
clear for now, so now's your chance. Head right and into the start of the 
game's first chapter!


========================================
Chapter 1: Storming Koopa Bros. Fortress
========================================

Pleasant Path
-------------

Upon entering this path east of Toad Town, head right and defeat the enemies 
you come across. Hit the blocks you pass, especially the red question block 
since it contains the Dizzy Attack Badge. Then, continue ahead and bust some 
more blocks to find a Fright Jar. After that, keep going right to the next 
scene. There, go right and hit the first block you reach to get a POW Block. 
Defeat the nearby Koopa Troopa, then hit the tree with the Hammer to make a 
blue switch fall to the ground.

Stomp the switch to make a bridge drop down to the right. Go across the 
bridge to the other side, and hit the block there. Defeat the Spiked Goomba 
that drops down, then continue right and defeat whatever other enemies are in 
the way. Go right and jump onto the next ledge, then check behind the fence 
to find a Sleepy Sheep. Now, continue right along the path, hitting the 
blocks and defeating enemies along the way.

At the top, head right to the next area. There, read the nearby sign to view 
directions, then take the path going south. Drop down to the lower ledges and 
follow the path down and around to find three blocks on the ground. Hit them 
with your Hammer to reveal a red treasure box in the air. Hit it to get the 
Attack FX B Badge. Then, follow the path right into the Koopa Village.


Koopa Village
-------------

When you enter this village, a Koopa will greet you. However, he'll tell you 
that there are Fuzzies in the village causing problems for them. At that 
point, a Fuzzy comes and steals his shell! When you gain control, jump on the 
Fuzzy with the shell to give it back to the Koopa. After that, help out the 
other two Koopas outside by getting their shells back. Defeat the Fuzzies 
roaming around, then check out all the bushes in the village to find some 
Coins, a Dried Shroom, and a Koopa Leaf.

Stop in the shop if you want, otherwise head right to the next area of town. 
There, check behind the bushes nearby to get another Koopa Leaf. Now, help 
the Koopa get his shell back by attacking the Fuzzy carrying it. Go right and 
push the blue block towards the center of the lower area, then jump and hit 
the block to make the shell atop it fall to the ground. After that, defeat 
the remaining Fuzzies, then knock on the door of the house with the green 
roof (the house that's shaking every now and then).

A Koopa named Kooper will come out and ask you to help him get his shell back 
from the Fuzzy in his house. So, enter the house and the Fuzzy will run out 
the other end. Go through the back door and chase it right through the next 
couple of areas until you reach the forest.

When you get there, you'll have to play a guessing game in order to win the 
shell again. The Fuzzy holding the shell, along with three other Fuzzies, 
will jump from tree to tree above you, and when they stop, you must hit the 
tree that has the shell. Do that three times to win Kooper's Shell! Now that 
you have the shell, head left towards the exit of this area and Kooper will 
come running towards you. Give him the shell when prompted to, then choose to 
let him join your party.

Now that everything's settled, go left like you're going to leave and the 
Fuzzies will all appear and battle you. Defeat the four of them, then after 
they retreat, go left and into the next area. Head left until you reach a few 
tree stumps you can jump on. Jump onto the first one, then up to the top one. 
Face the left and press C-Down with Kooper to make him retrieve the HP Plus 
Badge on the stump you can't reach. Now, continue left all the way to the 
following area to enter Koopa Village again.


Koopa Village
-------------

When you arrive here, go left and enter Kooper's home through the back door. 
Go through the house and exit at the other end. Next, go right and down and 
push the blue block to the center of the little square area. Jump on that 
block and hit the block in the air to make a Star Piece fall. Grab it, then 
enter the right-most house in this area. Talk to the elder Koot and offer to 
get the book "Koopa Legends" from Kolorado.

Leave the house and enter the house to the left of Kooper's house (that's 
Kolorado's place). Talk to his wife and she'll let you borrow that book. Now, 
bring it back to Koot in his house to get 1 measly Coin as a reward! After 
that, exit the house and head left to the other area of town. There, save 
your game, then head west and exit this town completely.


Pleasant Path
-------------

Now that you left the village, it's time to head to the Koopa Bros. Fortress. 
So, head west and up the hill to the very top. Then, follow the path east and 
across the bridge into the new and unexplored area. Here, go right and 
collect the Coins in the path, but be ready to do battle with a Koopa Troopa 
that'll jump out at you! Beat it, then go right to the edge of the high 
plateau.

Use Kooper's Shell Toss (C-Down) to break the block in the air to the right. 
Next, drop down to the lower area and collect the Thunder Bolt that fell. 
Then, continue right and to the edge by the water. Use Kooper's Shell Toss to 
hit the switch at the other side, which makes a bridge appear for you to 
cross over. Cross to the other side and defeat the Paratroopa, then continue 
right to the next area.

Hit the tree in the background with the Hammer to make a Star Piece fall out. 
Then, continue going to the right while defeating any Koopas in your way. Hit 
the Heart Block near the end to fully recover your HP and FP, then continue 
right to enter the Koopa Bros. Fortress.


Koopa Bros. Fortress
--------------------

When you arrive here, use the nearby Save Block to save your game. Then, go 
right along the path to the fortress entrance. One of the Koopa Bros. will 
come out and spot you, then run inside to warn his brothers. Now, continue up 
and enter the fortress itself. There, follow the path around the room and 
defeat the Koopa Troopa/Bob-omb team to get a Fortress Key. Use it to open 
the door to the right, then continue into the next room. There, head right 
and defeat the Bob-ombs along the way. Then, just continue through the door 
into the next room.

Here, you'll see a quick scene with one of the Koopa Bros. locking a key 
behind a gate. It'll see you come into the room, then it'll run away. Now, 
head right and defeat the enemies you encounter along the way. In the middle 
of the room, you'll see a badge locked in a cell. Go to the back wall to the 
right of the cell, then walk left through the wall to enter the cell. Collect 
the Power Bounce Badge, then exit the cell the same way you got in. Then, 
continue right into the following room. Here, defeat the Koopa Troopa at the 
other end of the room to make a blue switch appear.

Hit that switch to make the large set of stairs in the middle of the room 
sink into the ground, giving you access to the floor below. So, go down those 
steps to the lower level. There, just go left into the next room. In this new 
room, the doors on both sides will raise up so you can't exit, leaving you 
stuck to fight three Paratroopas. Defeat the enemies to lower the doors 
again, then head left into the next room. Continue left while jumping over 
the two fire bars that are rotating along the path, then collect the Fortress 
Key at the end.

Now, backtrack through the past couple of rooms to the room with the stairs. 
In that room, go back upstairs and use the key to unlock the door to the 
right. Then, enter that room. Upon entering this room, you'll witness one of 
the Koopa Bros. doing something to the floor above you. After he runs away, 
follow the path up and around to reach the higher level. At the top, go right 
onto that platform the Koopa Bro tampered with, and hit the block in the air. 
The floor will give out and you'll fall straight down into a cell on the 
bottom floor.

There, a pink-colored Bob-omb named Bombette will introduce herself to you. 
After she introduces herself, talk to her again and allow her to join your 
party. Hit the Heart Block nearby to recover your health, then use Bombette's 
ability to blow open the cracked wall in the upper corner of the cell. Now, 
go through that passage and follow the path around to the door. As you 
approach the door, a Koopa Troopa and two Bob-ombs will run in to see what 
all the racket was from. They'll spot you and Bombette, then battle you.

Defeat them, then continue through the door to the next room. There, go up 
the stairs to the higher level, then go left into the next room. Use 
Bombette's ability to destroy the cracked wall you see, then enter that cell 
to get the Fortress Key. Go back to the previous room and continue right to 
the following room. This time, take the path down and to the right by the 
cracked wall. Use Bombette to blow it open, then go outside through that hole 
and open a chest to get the Refund Badge.

Go back inside and enter the south door to reach another room. There, save 
your game and go back to the previous room, then follow the path all the way 
up to the top again. When you reach the top level this time, go through the 
left door into that room. Go left and defeat the Paratroopa, then use the key 
to unlock the door and continue into the next room. Here, go left to the edge 
of the platform, then switch your party so Kooper is your partner. Use his 
Shell Toss ability to hit the switch across the gap, which will cause bridges 
and walls to appear.

Now, walk left all the way until you reach the wall, then turn around and use 
the Shell Toss again to hit the switch, which will make the walls and bridges 
disappear again. Next, walk to the left edge of the platform you're on, then 
use the Shell Toss to hit the next switch to make everything appear once 
again. Continue left to the next wall, then turn around and Shell Toss the 
switch to lower it. Now that you're at the end, go left and into the next 
room. Here, defeat the Koopa Troopa and hit the switch to lower the stairs, 
then go down to the lower floor.

At the bottom, switch partners so you have Bombette with you, then destroy 
the cracked wall on the ledge you previously couldn't reach. Go right through 
the hole into the next room and collect the Fortress Key you find. Now, go 
back through the hole and up the stairs to the upper floor again, then unlock 
the door to the left. Continue left into the next room, then hit the switch 
to the left to raise the stairs from the water below.

Go around to the bottom of those stairs and defeat the Koopa Troopas, then go 
up to the higher level. At the top of the stairs, continue right and up the 
ramp to the top. Before entering the door to the right, continue up the path 
to the very top. There, defeat a Bob-omb and claim the Smash Charge Badge. I 
recommend you equip that badge right away! Now, go back down to the door you 
just passed and enter that room.

When you get outside here, the Koopa Bros. will come out at the other side 
and start shooting Bullet Bills at you. Avoid or fight them if you want, then 
start making your way to the right. A short distance from the beginning of 
this area, go down and left on another path and use Bombette to destroy a 
boulder in your way. Then, hit the block and collect the Maple Syrup. Now, go 
back up to the main path and continue right while fighting your way through 
lines of Bullet Bills.

When you reach the end, fight and defeat the three Bill Blasters. After that, 
go down and right and recover with the Heart Block. Save your game, then go 
back up and right through the door to the next room. Here, you'll finally 
encounter the Koopa Bros. They will taunt you, then move offscreen for a 
moment. When they return, they'll be in a giant wooden Bowser, which they'll 
battle you with first. Read the Bosses section for help on defeating this 
imposter. After you beat the imposter, you'll automatically fight the Koopa 
Bros. So, read the Bosses section for help on beating them as well.

After you win, go right and take the first Star Spirit card to end Chapter 1!


Princess Peach's Castle
-----------------------

Immediately after the end of Chapter 1, the scene will open inside Peach's 
castle. She'll talk to Twink about how there's a secret passage in her room. 
When you gain control of the Princess, check out the fireplace, which is 
suspiciously large. Then, check out the picture frame to the right of the 
fireplace to reveal a switch. Hit it to make the fireplace shut off, 
revealing a hidden doorway behind it. Now, go through that door into the next 
area.

Go all the way left to another switch, then hit it to cause the area you're 
in to rotate around, which leaves you off in another room. Go left and read 
the book on the table a few times to get a hint about where Mario is to go 
next, which is the Dry Dry Ruins. The Princess will then ask Twink to tell 
Mario that. At that point, Bowser will burst into the room and have his 
guards take her away. Twink will then follow and leave to tell Mario.

Meanwhile, the Eldstar and Mario are outside the Koopa Bros. Fortress. Allow 
the Eldstar to teach you about Star Power, and it'll give you a couple of 
Star Powers as thanks for saving the first Star Spirit. After Eldstar leaves, 
head left and save your game at the Save Block. After that, go left to the 
next area, which is Pleasant Path.


Pleasant Path
-------------

When you get back on this path to Toad Town again, go left and you'll find a 
cracked wall you passed by previously. Use Bombette to blow it up, then go 
down the pipe you can now access to reach another area. Go right to the next 
scene, then open the chest to get the FP Plus Badge. Now, go back left to the 
previous area and go down, then drop down to the lower area again. Now, 
continue all the way left through the next few areas of Pleasant Path while 
defeating the enemies along the way.

Continue all the way west along this path until you encounter Jr. Troopa 
again. Battle him (read the Bosses section if you need help), then after you 
win, continue west into Toad Town.


Toad Town
---------

When you arrive here again, head left and Twink will appear. He'll pass on 
what happened at the castle a few moments ago with the Princess, and he'll 
tell you to head to the Dry Dry Ruins. After he leaves, continue left and 
south along the path. You'll be stopped by some kid who's promoting his dad's 
new Badge Shop. Take a look in their shop and buy one of their badges if you 
like, then continue south to the next area.

Here, continue south until you reach the path going west. Go a little further 
south than that, then head west to find a pipe. The sign next to it reads 
"Private", but go down that pipe to enter the Toad Town Tunnels.


Toad Town Tunnels
-----------------

When you enter this place, there really isn't much you can do here for now. 
For now, head right and save your game, break the large yellow block and 
continue to the next area. There, defeat a Gloomba and hit all the blocks 
along the back end of the room. Defeat the Spiked Gloomba that falls from one 
of the blocks. Also, jump up in the empty area between the last two blocks to 
hit a hidden block containing a Super Shroom.

Now, continue right into the next room. Here, go right until a Blooper 
appears. You'll enter battle against this creature, so read the Bosses 
section for help on winning. After you win, continue right and open the chest 
to get the Shrink Stomp Badge. Now, backtrack left a couple rooms and go 
through the same pipe you came down here in to get back to Toad Town.


Toad Town
---------

After you get back above ground again, go right and continue south to the 
next area of town. There, continue all the way to the train tracks. At that 
point, go left and use Bombette to destroy the rock on the track. After that, 
go left and talk to the guy with a dark hat and choose to board the train 
heading to Mt. Rugged. The train will then leave, taking you into Chapter 2!


=======================================
Chapter 2: The Mystery of Dry Dry Ruins
=======================================

Mt. Rugged
----------

When you arrive at the train station, go left and save your game. Then, head 
left and check the bushes to find some Coins and an Egg. Next, go north along 
the path to the top of the mountain. At the top, go right and you'll hear the 
voice of someone who's lost. A Paratroopa will fly in and crash into Mario 
accidentally, then introduce himself as Parakarry. He'll ask you to help him 
by finding a letter he lost in Mt. Rugged.

For now, continue right into the next area after hitting the Heart Block if 
you need the energy. In the next area, go right and up the steps, then 
continue right and defeat the Monty Mole that appears. After that, follow the 
path down and right, then hit the block to get a Sleepy Sheep after defeating 
another Monty Mole that appears. Then, go back up to the higher area and take 
the path up and right to the next area.

There, save your game and continue to the right while defeating the Monty 
Moles you encounter. Go right and onto the higher ledge, then turn around and 
switch to Kooper and use his Shell Toss to grab the first Letter on the 
ledge. Then, just continue right to the next area. Here, go right and jump up 
to the higher ledge, then follow the path straight up to the peak of the 
hill. Once at the top, take the path right all the way to the next area.

Here, walk to the south and drop down to the lower area. Defeat the Cleft, 
then grab the Letter to the right. Then, go left and jump on the trampoline 
to reach the high ledge. There, go back left to the previous area. In this 
area again, take the path all the way to the left, through the caves, to the 
following area. There, go left until you can't go any further, then press A 
at the bar and slide down the hill. You'll jump the gap to reach the ledge 
across the area. When you land, continue left to the next area.

In this area, continue left while defeating the enemies along the way. You'll 
see two caves in the wall along the way; walk into them and go left on a 
hidden hill. Open the chest at the top to get the Damage Dodge Badge. Now, go 
back down and continue left. When you reach the gold trampoline, bounce on it 
to reach the high ledge, then follow the upper path to the right. Defeat 
another Cleft and hit the block with the Hammer to get Honey Syrup. Next, go 
back left to the top of that slide, then press A to slide down it and jump 
across to another ledge. There, continue all the way right to pick up the 
third and final Letter.

Now, drop down to the lower ledge and head right to the previous area. Go 
right and slide down to the lower area, then go down and left along the path 
to the Save Block. Save if you want, otherwise go left to the next area. Go 
all the way left through this area to reach the following area where 
Parakarry is waiting. Talk to Parakarry and give him each of the Letters. 
After he's done talking, take him along and he'll join your party. Now that 
you have someone new in your group, use the Heart Block and head right to the 
next area again.

In this area, head to the right and jump up the steps, then continue right 
and defeat the Monty Mole. Go down the steps and turn left, then destroy the 
block with the Hammer and talk to the creature that comes out of the ground. 
Hit him with the Hammer to get Whacka's Bump, which is a very good item to 
have. Now, go back right and up the steps, then continue up and right along 
the path to reach the next area. Go right and save your game if you like, 
otherwise keep going to the right and defeat the Monty Moles that appear.

Go up the steps, then go right and jump up to the higher ledge. Have 
Parakarry fly you to the left across the two gaps to the ledge with the Quake 
Hammer Badge. After that, head back to the right and continue to the next 
area. There, go right and jump onto the higher ledge. Instead of going up the 
hill, continue along the path to the right, then use Parakarry to fly across 
the gap. Talk to the plant that jumps out of the ground and it'll give you a 
Seed that should be planted in Toad Town.

Now, go back left to the hill and go up it this time. At the top, continue 
right to the next area. Go right and have Parakarry fly you across to the 
ledge you previously couldn't reach. Go across the bridge and the buzzard in 
the background will fly over and confront you. It'll ask for your name, so 
pick either Mario or Princess Peach if you want to battle, or Luigi if you 
want to avoid the fight. I chose to fight, so read the Bosses section for 
help on winning.

After the fight, Buzzar will fall off the mountain in defeat. Now, follow the 
path downhill and into the next area. There, go right and down a couple more 
ledges. Use the Heart Block and save your game at the bottom, then continue 
down and right into Dry Dry Desert.


Dry Dry Desert
--------------

When you enter this area, head right to reach a campsite. Talk to the Koopa 
with the moustache (Kolorado), and he'll tell you about his search for the 
Dry Dry Ruins. After that, have Parakarry deliver the Letter you found in Mt. 
Rugged to gain a Star Piece. Then, take the path north to the next scene. 
Here, defeat the Bandits, then go up to the block on the ground and hit it 
once with the Hammer to make a block appear in the air. Hit it to get a 
Mushroom. Hit the ground block 10 times total to make a block with a Super 
Shroom appear. Hit it 100 times total to make a third block appear with an 
Ultra Shroom inside.

After you collect those, continue north to the next area. Go up and jump onto 
the rock to the right, then jump again to make a hidden block appear. Collect 
the Thunder Rage inside, then head east two scenes. At that point, head south 
one scene. There, defeat the enemies and hit the blocks with your Hammer to 
get four Coins and a Fire Flower. Next, head south three scenes. Hit the 
blocks in that area to get some Coins, then continue south to the following 
area.

From there, go west to the next scene, then stand on the rock in the middle 
of the area and jump to reveal a hidden block. Grab the Attack FX C Badge, 
then go east to the previous area. From there, go east to the following 
scene, then go north two scenes. Hit the block to get one Coin there, then 
continue northward to the next scene. Here, you'll find a whirlwind moving 
around. Jump into it to be brought to another area. There, go right and stand 
in the middle of the formation of three palm trees, then jump to reveal a 
block containing the Runaway Pay Badge.

At this point, go north to the next scene. Here, hit the blocks you find to 
get some Coins and a Honey Syrup. Then, continue north one scene, then east 
one. There, go up and you'll find a Fire Flower hiding behind a cactus. Now, 
defeat the enemies and head south for two scenes. There, hit all the blocks 
to get some more Coins. Then, go south two more scenes to find a greener 
area. Here, defeat some enemies and hit the block to get Coins, then check 
behind the bushes in the lower-right corner of the area to find a Tasty 
Tonic. Then, go west and into the next scene.

Here, jump into the whirlwind and it'll take you to another area. You'll land 
on the high ledge next to the Spin Attack Badge (you passed by here a few 
moments ago, but couldn't jump high enough). Take the badge, then drop to the 
ground. Go left and jump onto the higher ledge with the block on it. Stand on 
the block and call out Kooper. Use his Shell Toss to break the block in the 
air to the left, then pick up the Stop Watch that falls. After that, go south 
one scene, then east one scene.

When you arrive at the oasis, go down and right to find a Super Block, which 
upgrades the power of one of your partners. I recommend you use this one on 
Bombette since her new ability is the most useful at this point in the game. 
After you finish with that, hit the nearby Heart Block, as well as the two 
large trees in the area with your Hammer to get a Lemon and a Lime. Then, go 
up to the next area.

Here, go up and hit the block to get a Coin, then jump on the block. Jump 
again to make a hidden block appear and an item fall out. Grab the Life 
Shroom and go north to the next area. There, go up to the main path, then go 
right. Hit the last tree across from the sign to get a Letter, then continue 
into the Dry Dry Outpost.


Dry Dry Outpost
---------------

When you enter this desert village, go right and you'll see a mouse come out 
of the shop and run away. Follow him by going all the way right to the second 
area of town. There, continue all the way right to the last house in town. 
Talk to the masked mouse in front of that house and give him the Lemon you 
found by that oasis in the desert. He'll become happy and will let you ask 
him something, so ask how to find Mr. Moustafa. He'll tell you to go to the 
shop in town and buy a Dried Shroom, then a Dusty Hammer, in that order.

After he's done, head left to the next area and enter the shop. Buy those two 
items in the right order and the shopkeeper will come and start talking to 
you. He'll tell you how to find Moustafa as well. Now, exit the shop and save 
your game nearby. Then, head right to the second half of town. Go all the way 
to the house Sheek was standing in front of and enter it. Go right out the 
side and jump on the crates to reach the roof. Then, go left across the roofs 
to the top of another building. Grab the Letter hiding behind a pot, then 
continue left and jump across the gap to another ledge.

Enter that building and talk to Sheek inside. He'll reveal that he is 
Moustafa, then he'll tell you how to reach the Dry Dry Ruins. He'll also give 
you the Pulse Stone to find your way there. After Moustafa finishes talking, 
leave the room and drop down to the lower area, then go left to the next 
area. Continue left and save your game once again. Now, continue left and 
leave the Dry Dry Outpost.


Dry Dry Desert
--------------

Back in the desert, head north until you can't go any further. At that point, 
start going west. Keep going west through the desert until you reach an area 
where there's a stone platform in the middle of the area. Go up to it and use 
the Pulse Stone to cause the Dry Dry Ruins to emerge. After that, use the 
Heart Block to the left of the ruins to recover. Then, go up and enter the 
ruins.


Dry Dry Ruins
-------------

When you enter the ruins, you'll hear a voice trying to scare you away. 
Ignore it and continue to the right, then save your game and continue to the 
next room. Go right and defeat the Pokey Mummies that come out of the caskets 
in the background. Make sure you take the Spike Shield Badge inside the 
middle casket, and equip it as soon as you get it. Then, go right and down 
the steps to the next room. There, go right and grab the Ruins Key sitting on 
a ledge, then go back to the previous room.

This time, go up the steps and unlock the door, then enter that room. Go 
right and step on the switch to drain the sand into the room below. Now, 
leave this room and go down to the lower room you found the Key in, then go 
right through the door you couldn't reach before to get to the next room. 
You'll hear the voice again trying to scare you away, but don't let that 
bother you. Go up and right along the path, then go up the steps to reach the 
top of the room.

Defeat the Buzzy Beetle, then walk up and have Parakarry fly you right across 
to the ledge. Use Bombette to destroy the cracked wall, then go right into 
the next room. Step on the switch to drain the sand to the room below, 
revealing a Star Piece. Grab it, then leave the room and drop down to the 
next level. From there, go right into the room where the sand drained into. 
Collect the Ruins Key and leave the room, then go downstairs to the bottom 
level and defeat another Buzzy Beetle. Next, go left and down the steps, then 
unlock the door and enter the next room.

Go all the way left and hit the block to cause all the caskets to open and 
the door to close, leaving you to fight three Pokey Mummies. Beat them, then 
grab the Key that appears and use it to go left to the next room. In this 
room, go up left and have Parakarry fly you across to the other side. Then, 
continue into the next room. The voice will come back again, although it'll 
mess up and hint at the fact there may be something important here. Anyway, 
go left and up the steps to the next ledge, then hit the switch there. Go 
right and up to another ledge, then hit the switch there to reposition the 
stairs some more.

Next, go left and up the steps to another ledge. There, just go all the way 
left and down to a ledge with another switch. Hit it to move the steps again, 
then go down to the ground level and go right. Go up the blue steps, then 
continue left and up the red ones. Now, go left and walk down and right along 
the wooden frame. When you reach the left wall, drop down onto the lower 
wooden frame, then walk into the left wall to find a hidden room. Open the 
chest to get the Slow Go Badge. Now, go back right and drop down into the 
cell with a large chest. Open it to get the Super Hammer, which is capable of 
destroying the gray stone blocks you've seen so far.

With your new weapon, destroy the stone block to the right and continue right 
out of this room. Have Parakarry fly you back to the right, then continue 
into that room. Go right, then up the red stairs to the higher ledge. Hit the 
switch to reposition the steps, then drop down and go up the steps to reach 
another ledge. Destroy the stone block and grab the Artifact you find. Now, 
go back down and continue right to the next room. Go right up the steps and 
keep going right into the following room. There, destroy another stone block 
and go up the steps and take the Pyramid Stone.

Defeat the Stone Chomp that falls off the wall to open the door again, then 
exit the room. Continue left and down to the next room, then keep going all 
the way left to the following room. Here, go down the steps and have Bombette 
destroy the cracked wall to the left. Then, enter that new room. In this 
room, drop down the shaft to the lower area, where you'll find another Super 
Block. This time, use it to upgrade Parakarry's level. After that, use 
Bombette to bomb the wall to the left, then go into that room.

Go left and destroy the stone block, then defeat the Stone Chomp that pops 
out of it. Then, jump up to the higher platform and collect the Diamond 
Stone. Now, go back right to the previous room. Keep going to the following 
room, then follow the path right while defeating the Buzzy Beetles along the 
way (if you have the Quake Hammer Badge equipped, it will come in handy). 
Continue into the next room, then in that room, destroy the stone block in 
the corner to reveal a switch. Step on it to make steps appear along the 
wall. Go up them and collect the Ruins Key, then drop down and go left to the 
previous room. Go back down the hallway to the next room.

This time, use the trampoline to get up to the high ledge again, then go 
right to the next room. Go around the stairs and continue right to the 
following room. Just go all the way right and up the steps, then unlock the 
door and continue into that room. Hit the switch at the far side of the room 
to drain the sand, then take a look at the patterns on the five small statues 
in the background. Now, leave the room and go down the stairs into the other 
room below. There, go right across the sand to the following room. In that 
room, destroy the stone block and collect the Lunar Stone.

Defeat the Stone Chomp that falls on you, then go left out of this room. 
Continue to the following room, then go up and left to find five large 
statues. Place the Pyramid, Lunar, and Diamond Stones on the statues in the 
order shown in the other room (Pyramid left, Diamond middle, Lunar right). 
After you do that, the room will shake and stairs will appear leading 
downstairs. Go down the stairs, making sure to hit the Heart Block along the 
way. When you reach the bottom, go right into the next room.

Once more, you'll hear that annoying voice. Just ignore it like you've been 
doing and save your game here. Then, continue right into the following room. 
Here, you'll meet Tutankoopa himself and enter battle against him. Read the 
Bosses section for help on winning here. After the fight, the Chomp will 
chase Tutankoopa away, leaving the second Star Spirit, Mamar, for you to get. 
Take the Star Spirit Card to end Chapter 2. Now is a good time to save your 
game, too.


Princess Peach's Castle
-----------------------

The scene will open in the castle once again after you beat Chapter 2. Bowser 
will be annoying the Princess in her room, and even hints at what he's 
sending to attack Mario next. Then, Kammy Koopa will come in and give Bowser 
some bad news. After they both leave, Twink and Peach will talk about trying 
to help Mario figure out how to defeat the Invincible Tubba Blubba that 
Bowser was referring to.

When you gain control of her, check out the frame to the right of the 
fireplace to reveal the hidden passageway. Go through the passage into the 
next area. Go left and down the hallway and hit the next switch on the 
rotating platform to be brought into Bowser's room. Since there's nothing 
here to deal with, go right and through the door to get outside. Twink will 
also warn you not to get caught by the guards here. In the main area, go down 
and left into the next room, which is the library. Get through this room 
while avoiding the guards at all costs, then pick up the Power Rush Badge 
between the bookcases at the end.

Now, get back to the right and exit this room. Get across the main room 
without being seen, then enter the room at the other side (the door closer to 
the steps). Here, grab the Deep Focus Badge nearby, then check out the large 
chest in the room. After that, put both badges in that chest and leave the 
room. Go back across and into the library again. Get all the way through here 
to the end, where you'll hear a conversation between two guards about Tubba 
Blubba and his weak point. After that, they'll catch the Princess and take 
her to her room, and Twink will fly away to find Mario.

Back outside of the Dry Dry Ruins, the second Star Spirit, Mamar, thanks 
Mario for freeing her. She'll also boost his Star Level up to 2, and give him 
the Lullaby ability. After she flies away, use the nearby Heart Block and 
take the west path into the desert again.


Dry Dry Desert
--------------

When you go back into the Dry Dry Desert to the west of the ruins, continue 
west until you can't go any further, then start heading south. Continue going 
south through the desert until you reach the scene with Kolorado's campsite. 
Talk to Kolorado and give him the Artifact you found in the ruins. You'll 
receive a Star Piece in exchange for it. After that, take the path going west 
to reach Mt. Rugged again.


Mt. Rugged
----------

When you enter this area again, start by hitting the nearby Heart Block and 
saving your game. Then, continue left and up the hill to the next area. Here, 
follow the zig-zag path up another couple of hills, then go left across the 
bridge. Have Parakarry fly you across the gap to the other ledge, and then 
continue on to the next area. Go left and down the steep hill to the bottom, 
then keep on going west into the following area.

As you've been doing, keep moving to the west through this area while 
defeating the Monty Moles along the way. Save your game when you reach the 
Save Block, then go to the next area. Here, follow the path to the left and 
defeat the Monty Mole that pops out of the ground. Then, continue along the 
path until you reach the following area. Go left and use the Heart Block, 
then continue left and destroy the stone block with your Hammer.

Then, follow the new path to find a Super Block. Hit it and choose to upgrade 
Kooper or Goombario (I'd prefer Kooper for now). After that's done, go back 
to the right and continue down the hill to the train station. Save your game 
once more if you like, then talk to the mushroom guy next to the train and 
get ready to go back to Toad Town.


Toad Town
---------

After you arrive at the Toad Town station, go around and follow the path 
north into the actual town area. As soon as you enter the area, go right and 
up into the grass and talk to the plant in the ground. It'll give you another 
Magical Seed for listening to it. Now, continue north through the next couple 
areas of town, then go through the blue star gate at the north end. Follow 
the path up and right past the site of the castle, then continue along the 
path towards the Shooting Star Summit.


Shooting Star Summit
--------------------

When the path splits, take the lower path to Merluvlee's House. Enter the 
house and check inside the large chest to retrieve the two Badges Princess 
Peach dropped in the chest in the castle. Now, go upstairs and trade Star 
Pieces for Badges with Merlon if you want. Otherwise, leave the house and 
head all the way west and south into Toad Town again.


Toad Town
---------

When you get back here, go all the way south to the next area of town. There, 
go south a bit more to just past the center of the area, then go left and 
down the pipe into the Toad Town Tunnels.


Toad Town Tunnels
-----------------

When you get here again, go left and destroy the stone block in the wall with 
the Hammer, then take that path into the next room. Go left and defeat the 
Electro Blooper that appears (read the Bosses section for help). After you 
beat it, hit the switch it leaves behind to make pipes appear from the three 
tiles in the floor nearby. For now on, you can come here and use those pipes 
to quickly access Dry Dry Outpost (the left one), Koopa Village (middle one), 
or Goomba Village (the right one).

Now, continue left and destroy the stone block, then enter the next area. Hit 
the three blocks to get two Coins and a Snowman Doll. Then, go left and ride 
one of the platforms up to the higher ledge. Jump off and go left into the 
pipe to reach the next area. When you get here, continue left and into the 
following room. Go left and defeat the Spiked Gloombas, then hit the block to 
make the trampoline fall to the floor. Use the trampoline to reach the higher 
ledge, then open the chest to get the Power Smash Badge. Now, go back down 
and right to the previous room.

Here, go right and jump onto the platform in the air to weigh it down a 
little. When the second platform rises high enough, quickly jump onto it, 
then onto the ledge. From there, continue right into the next room. Here, go 
right and ride the platform to the higher ledge, then have Parakarry fly you 
right across two gaps. Pick up the Star Piece on the last ledge, then go back 
to the first ledge and ride the moving platform up through the ceiling to 
another room. Go right and drop down into another room, then go right and use 
the Super Block to upgrade the partner you didn't yet upgrade.

After you're done there, go left and down the pipe to reach the next room. 
Drop down to the floor and go left to the next room, then drop down to the 
ground and head left. Go up the steps, then go up and right through the pipe 
to the next room. From there, continue right through the next couple of rooms 
until you reach the very first room of the Toad Town Tunnels. There, go up 
the pipe to get out of here and enter Toad Town again.


Toad Town
---------

Back in the town, go east to the main path, then start going north. Go right 
across the bridge and you'll hear someone screaming. Mario will automatically 
move forward to see a guard scared because there's a ghost floating around. 
Tell him you saw it as well, and the ghost will keep appearing, but Mario 
won't be quick enough to see it. The ghost will go to the east, and the guard 
will ask you to go to the forest and stop it.

So, continue to the right into the next area. When you enter this area, start 
by going to the right and saving your game via the Save Block. Then, continue 
east and the ghost will appear and talk to you. It'll tell you to head to the 
mansion at the end of the forest. After it leaves, go east into Forever 
Forest to start Chapter 3!


========================================
Chapter 3: The "Invincible" Tubba Blubba
========================================

Forever Forest
--------------

When you enter this dark and creepy forest, head right and press A at the bar 
in order to pass it. Follow the path right and you'll notice there are three 
flowers in the bushes across from each path. Continue until you pass the 
flowers that shake, then go down and pass that bar (press A) and go to the 
next area. In this area, a weird creature will start talking to you. After it 
stops talking, talk to it some more. After it gives you a hint and leaves, go 
past the bar and follow the path around.

This time in the background, you'll notice a tall tree with a black hole on 
top of it sitting in the inner section of the path across from each different 
path. Walk around until you find the one with the glowing red eyes, and take 
that path to the next area. Here, go right and get past the bar, then follow 
the path around. Look for four flowers in a bush across from one of the 
paths. When you find that particular bush, take the path south of it to the 
next area.

Here, go right and around the area like you have been doing, but first, look 
for a path leading into the center of the area. Go up that path and talk to 
the plant to get another Magical Seed. After that, go back down to the round 
path and go past each of the four paths. Go past each path and you'll notice 
a tall tree across from each one. Walk past each one until you find the one 
that a red face appears on after you pass it, then take that path to the next 
area.

In this next area, go right and around the path once again. This time, you'll 
notice several small blue and purple mushrooms across from each path. Press A 
in front of them and they'll light up. Look for the patch with just three of 
those mushrooms, and when you press A by them, they stay lit longer than 
usual (it's the one with two mushrooms in front and one in the back). Take 
that path to the next area. There, go around and look for the path leading to 
the center of the area. Take that path and hit the block in the air to get a 
HP Plus Badge.

Now, get back to the main path and look for the tree with a beehive on top of 
it. Take that path back to the previous area. Then in that area again, look 
for the patch where there are many of those small bushes. Take that path to 
another new area. In this area, walk around and you'll notice a few flowers 
in the bushes across from each path. Press A in front of each patch; when you 
find the patch of flowers that don't disappear when you press A, take that 
path to the next area. Here, go around and you'll see a signpost telling you 
to take that path to Boo's Mansion.

Before you go there, continue right to the path after that one and press A by 
the rock across from the path. If a red face appears, take that path into 
another area. Here, go up to the bushes straight ahead and press A to make 
flowers come out. Then, go around and into the center, then hit the block you 
find to get a FP Plus Badge. Now, go back down and find the bush with the 
flowers, then take that path back to the previous area. Now, go around and 
take the path in front of the signpost to reach Boo's Mansion.


Boo's Mansion
-------------

When you arrive here, go right and up and open the gate. Once inside, the 
ghost will appear again and tell you to meet its master on the third floor of 
the mansion. After it disappears, use the Heart Block and save your game, 
then enter the mansion itself. Once inside, start by going up the stairs 
nearby to the second floor. There, go all the way right to find a frame on 
the wall that shakes. Talk to it and it'll agree to let you up to the third 
floor if you find the picture to fit in the frame. So, enter the room to the 
left of the frame.

Here, check out the middle dresser to the left and many Boos will pop out and 
spin around in the middle of the room. One Boo will appear in the center, 
holding a Record. Watch it spin around above the other Boos and keep track of 
who is holding the Record. After a few moments, hit the Boo holding it with 
your Hammer to make them all disappear in shame. Take the Record and exit 
this room. Now, go left and enter the other room on this floor. In this room, 
there is a Boo guarding a chest in the corner, and it won't budge.

So, check out the old-fashioned phonograph in the opposite corner and play 
the Record on it. Press A repeatedly, making sure the meter stays at the OK 
mark as much as possible. When the Boo comes right next to the phonograph, 
press B to stop, then run to the chest and open it to get the Weight. After 
the ghost disappears, leave the room and go back downstairs. Here, go right 
to find a couch. Jump on the brown cushion to be launched up to the 
chandelier. You'll weigh the chandelier down to the ground, which opens up a 
hidden path. When you reach the bottom, put the Weight on it to keep the path 
open. Now, go up and through the door you just revealed to enter the next 
room.

In this room, go up and open the chest in front of you. It'll turn out to be 
empty, but the chandelier will fall, almost crushing you. After it retracts, 
go left and down the stairs to the lower level. From there, go south into the 
next room. There's nothing here, so go through the door to the right to reach 
the following room. As soon as you enter this room, the door will disappear 
behind you. Go right and open the chest in the corner to release several 
Boos, which hold the Super Boots. Play the guessing game like you did in the 
room with the Record to win the Super Boots. Mario will now be able to use 
the Spin Jump, which shakes the ground on impact and destroys weak floors! 
Press A after you jump to execute that move.

With your new ability, Spin Jump on the boxes in the back of the room to get 
Maple Syrup. After you're done here, use your new move on the patched up 
floor in the middle of the room to fall to the basement level. There, go left 
and you'll notice there's a shop here run by the Boo. You can't buy stuff 
from here yet, however. Anyway, step on the first small switch to make a 
second one appear. Hit that one and a giant one will appear next to it. Go 
right and jump onto the chair, then left onto the high ledge. From there, 
jump onto the switch and Spin Jump on it to make stairs leading upstairs 
appear. Now, go up those stairs and Spin Jump on the boxes to find a Super 
Shroom. Then, go through the north door to reach the next room.

Here, go left and up the stairs to the upper floor, then go around and out of 
this room. In the main room again, go right and into the room you haven't yet 
entered. In this room, go right and destroy the three boxes to get two 
Apples. Also, go left and jump onto the box, then into the vase to become the 
original NES Mario if you're feeling nostalgic. To revert back to your 
regular form, jump into the vase again. After that, Spin Jump the weak part 
of the floor to fall down into the room below. When you land, go up and have 
Parakarry fly you onto the bookcase to the right. Grab Boo's Portrait, then 
fly back across to the first bookcase you were on. Jump down and left onto a 
stack of crates and break them to get a quick Star Piece.

Now, switch to Bombette and have her destroy the left wall. Then, go left 
into the next room. Here, go left and up the stairs, then continue out to the 
main room. There, go up the stairs and head right to the empty frame. Put 
Boo's Portrait there and it'll help you reach the third floor like it said. 
Press A to jump into the frame, and you'll magically appear on the upper 
floor! Now that you're there, go left and through either of the doors into 
the next room.

After you enter, you'll hear a creepy voice. Lady Bow and the old ghost that 
was following you before will appear and talk to you. They'll tell you about 
Tubba Blubba and how he's causing so many problems for the Boos. Lady Bow 
will reward you with the Star Spirit that she has in the mansion if you 
defeat Tubba Blubba. Finally, she'll decide to join your group. With Bow in 
your group, go back and out of this room. Now, walk straight to the south and 
drop to the ground level.

There, talk to the Boo and it'll ask you to visit the shop downstairs since 
Bow is in your group now. Go down there and buy some better items, or sell 
your old stuff, then get back to the main room. From there, exit Boo Mansion 
and save your game again. Then, take the east path into Gusty Gulch.


Gusty Gulch
-----------

When you enter this new area, go right and Bow will have the ghostly guards 
open the gate for you. After that, continue right into the next area. In this 
area, head straight along the path while defeating the Hyper Paragoombas 
along the way. Go past the windmill for now since it's locked, and go right 
into the next area. Here, listen to the Boo that talks to you about Tubba 
Blubba. Then, continue right and save your game at the Save Block. Talk to 
all the Boos you come across for some quick information. Keep going right to 
the next area and use the Heart Block there, and talk to some more Boos. Go 
right and they will all panic and tell you to hide. Press C-Down when Bow 
tells you to in order to become transparent, then you'll see Tubba Blubba 
appear and eat the Boo you were talking to.

After he leaves, continue right and up the hill into the next area. Go right 
and hit the block to get one Coin, then defeat the Hyper Cleft. You'll see a 
ledge with a Dizzy Dial on it, but you can't reach it, even via Parakarry. 
Anyway, continue right and hit a couple more blocks to get one Coin and some 
Repel Gel. Defeat the Hyper Goomba you see and go right some more to find a 
Letter. Defeat another Hyper Cleft, then continue right to the next area.

Go right and up the path, defeating the enemies you come across. Go up the 
hill when the path sort of splits, then have Parakarry fly you across to the 
other side. Then, continue right and hit the three blocks to get some Coins 
and a Super Shroom. Also, walk behind the rock in the background to get a 
Star Piece. Now, continue up the hill to the next area. Here, go right and 
save your game again. Then, continue right and enter Tubba Blubba's Castle.


Tubba Blubba's Castle
---------------------

When you enter this large castle, make sure you have Bow as your partner. In 
this first room, there are guards patrolling the area, and if they catch you, 
they'll escort you back outside. Head to the left side of the room, using 
Bow's transparency ability when a guard spots you to make the guard lose 
interest. Repeat that a few times until you get to the left side, then enter 
that room. Go down the hallway and defeat the two Clubbas you come across. 
Enter the second room you pass, then in that room, jump on the boxes and up 
to the table. Grab the Star Piece, then defeat the Clubba on the ground and 
leave the room.

Now, go left into the following room. Here, defeat a couple more Clubbas and 
go left through this room. Go up and enter the door in the upper-left area of 
the room. In the next room, go down the sets of stairs and defeat the Clubbas 
you pass along the way. At the bottom, Spin Jump on the weak floor to fall 
through to the room below. There, open the chest to the left to get a Castle 
Key. Walk south and drop down to the lower area, then hit the Heart Block and 
talk to the Boo to hear an important hint for later.

Go left into the next room, and use the Super Block there to upgrade Bow's 
powers. Then, go up one set of stairs and you'll run into a floating guard. 
Let it grab you and escort you back outside (doing this will save you some 
time). Go back inside and make your way to the right side of the large room, 
using Bow's ability if a guard spots you. Then, go right and enter the next 
room using the Castle Key.

In this room, go right through the room and go up the stairs at the end. 
Defeat the Clubbas you come across, then go left along the upper level while 
turning transparent when the guards spot you. Continue left and through the 
door into the next room. Here, go left and defeat the first sleeping Clubba 
you see. After you beat it, use Bombette to destroy the cracked wall, then 
enter that room. Here, you'll find three patched up sections of the floor 
covered with wood. Spin jump on the two upper ones (ignore the bottom-right 
one), then drop down the right hole into the room below.

Go left to the edge of the table you land on, then have Parakarry fly you 
across to the other table. Grab the D-Down Jump Badge, then drop to the 
ground and use the trampoline to reach the room above. Now, exit this room 
and continue left through the hallway. Become transparent if the floating 
guard sees you, then continue left and defeat the Clubba. Go up and into the 
side room (not the large door to the left). Here, you'll notice how spikes go 
up and down in the path leading around to the chest in the corner. When the 
spikes go down, go around for a moment, then use Bow to become transparent 
just before the spikes come up. When they go down, repeat the same strategy. 
When you reach the chest, open it to get a Castle Key.

Now, get back across the room the same way and exit this room. There, go 
through the large door to the left into the following room. Here, go around 
and you'll see a clock against the wall. If you want, you can fall into the 
middle area and collect the Star Piece on the table below. Anyway, push the 
clock to the left to reveal a hidden room. Enter the room and go to the 
dresser in the corner. Open the bottom-right drawer and jump onto it, then 
onto the other open drawer. Use Parakarry to fly across to the bed, then jump 
onto the ledge at the end of the bed. Continue jumping up the ledges and 
follow the path into a dark room containing the Mega Rush Badge. Go back out 
of that room and drop down to the floor, then exit the room.

Now, go down and defeat the Clubba, then unlock the door and enter the next 
room. Hit the nearby block to get some Maple Syrup, then go up the stairs and 
enter the next room at the top. Here, go right and you'll see Tubba Blubba 
come out of a room at the end of the hallway and start walking towards you. 
Head right and if you see him come on your screen, have Bow make you 
transparent until Tubba Blubba walks away. Make your way all the way to the 
end of the hallway and enter the room that it came out of. In this room, 
there are many Clubbas sleeping, guarding something at the other end of the 
room.

Make your way to the left and defeat all the guards along the way, then grab 
the Castle Key on the platform at the end. Now, go back and exit this room, 
then unlock the door to the right and enter that room. Here, use the Heart 
Block and the Save Block, then continue into the following room. There, go 
all the way right across the room and through the door at the other end into 
the next room. In this room, go all the way right and you'll find a chest. 
Approach it and Tubba Blubba will suddenly enter the room. He'll walk towards 
you, then jump on his bed and sleep. Now, open the chest and a key will come 
out and talk to you.

After it talks, pick either Yes or No and it'll start screaming to alert 
Tubba Blubba that it's being stolen! The giant creature will wake up, so take 
the key and run out of the room. Go left and Tubba Blubba will come out of 
the room and destroy the floor, sending you to the next floor down. You'll 
then enter the room to the right. Follow the path all the way right and down 
the steps, then back left and into the next room. Then, go left and down to 
exit the castle (it's recommended you use the Spinning Dash to get out of the 
castle quickly). Once outside, the Boos will help by holding the door shut 
for now. They'll then tell you to run to the Windy Mill at the bottom of the 
hill. Now, save your game and go left to the next area of Gusty Gulch.


Gusty Gulch
-----------

In this area again, head all the way west while defeating the enemies in your 
way for quick experience. Continue through the next couple areas until you 
reach the Heart Block. Hit that block, then continue to the next area. Go 
left and talk to some of the Boos, then save your game at the Save Block. 
Continue to the next area, then go to the Windy Mill and unlock the door 
using the Mystical Key. Then, open the door and go inside the Windy Mill.


Windy Mill
----------

Inside the giant windmill, Spin Jump on the middle platform to fall down to a 
lower room. When you land, go right and into another room. Go right and 
defeat a Hyper Goomba, then continue down the hall to reach a sign that tells 
you not to enter the room. Go into the next room, despite what it says. 
There, go right and beat another Hyper Goomba, then continue into the 
following room. Defeat one last Hyper Goomba and continue down the hallway, 
then enter that last room (make sure Bow is your partner before entering this 
next room). Here, you'll see a heart on a platform and it'll talk to you. 
After it explains its function, you'll have to do battle with it. Read the 
Bosses section for help on beating Tubba's Heart.

After you beat it, the Heart will make a getaway. Run back through the 
previous rooms and bounce on the trampoline at the end to get back above 
ground. Exit the Windy Mill and you'll see the Heart and Tubba Blubba 
reunite. You'll then have to fight Tubba Blubba, so read the Bosses section 
for help on beating it as well. After you win, Tubba Blubba will spit out all 
the Boos he ate, then cry and run away. After that, Bow will have her butler 
give you the Star Spirit. So, grab the Star Spirit card to clear Chapter 3! 
You can now save your game as well.


Princess Peach's Castle
-----------------------

When the scene opens again, you'll be in Princess Peach's Castle once again. 
Twink will be talking to her once again, wondering what happened to Mario. 
After the conversation, open the hidden passageway again (check the frame to 
the right of the fireplace and hit the switch) and enter it. Go down the hall 
and hit the next switch to end up in Bowser's room. There, you'll hear Bowser 
and Kammy Koopa arguing about what happened with Tubba Blubba.

Bowser will see Princess Peach standing there and start asking her what Mario 
really hates. He'll give you a few options as well. Pick all the non-enemy 
options (Mushroom, Thunder Rage, Super Soda), and Bowser will make sure there 
are so many of those things that Mario can't avoid them in Shy Guy's Toy Box! 
After that, Peach will be brought out by the guards and sent to her room 
again, with Twink following.


Windy Mill
----------

Meanwhile, outside of Windy Mill, the third Star Spirit known as Skolar will 
thank you for saving it again. He will also raise your Star Level to 3, and 
teach you the Star Storm ability. After a few more words, Skolar will float 
back to Star Haven and you will gain control again. So, head left to the next 
area. Keep going left and through the gate to enter the next area. There, go 
left and south past Boo's Mansion, then go through the gate and follow the 
path to Forever Forest.


Forever Forest
--------------

When you enter this creepy forest again, go left and press A to pass the bar. 
Bow will complain about the bugs in the forest, but that's not a big problem 
here. Go in either direction and none other than Jr. Troopa will appear. 
After he taunts you, you'll enter battle against it, so read the Bosses 
section for help on winning this time around. After you win, he'll run away 
like a coward once again.

Now, go around and take any path you want to the next area. If you took one 
of the wrong paths (which you should have), you'll end up in an area with a 
sign in front of you pointing south to Toad Town. Go back into the path you 
came from and you should end up outside of the forest again. You'll see Jr. 
Troopa happy to have escaped the forest, and he'll run away. Continue left 
and save your game, then continue into Toad Town.


Toad Town
---------

When you enter Toad Town again, head left and talk to the guard, Fice T. 
Switch to Parakarry, and give him a Letter to gain a Star Piece. Now, head 
across the bridge. When you reach the other side, you'll hear someone 
screaming, then a Shy Guy will run out of Tayce T's house with her Frying 
Pan! Head north to the next area of town. Here, you'll see another Shy Guy 
stealing Rowf's Calculator. Hit the Shy Guys running around in the flower 
garden to make them go away, then continue north and talk to Merlon outside 
his house.

He'll tell you about a red palm tree in the Dry Dry Outpost, and how you 
should run around it a few times (find that tree in the outpost and run 
around it five times; a guy nearby will tell you to Spin Jump inside Merlon's 
house three times). After Merlon goes inside, follow him into his house. Spin 
Jump on the floor inside three times to make the Quick Change Badge fall from 
the attic. Take it, then leave Merlon's home. Go west to the first area of 
town, and you'll see a Shy Guy run off with Russ T's Dictionary.

Continue towards Russ T's house, but go down the pipe outside to head to 
Mario's House. There, defeat the Shy Guy pestering Luigi, then talk to Luigi 
really quick. After that, go back to Toad Town via the pipe. From there, head 
east to the next area of town. Go right to the intersection, then continue 
south to the following area. Go south a bit more to the middle area, then 
take the west path to the next area. When you enter this area, Twink will 
come down and talk to you. He'll tell Mario that the next Star Spirit is in 
Shy Guy's Toy Box, but he doesn't know exactly where.

After Twink leaves, go left and enter the Shop. A Shy Guy will run out with a 
Key of some sort. Talk to the shopkeeper and stock up on healing items, then 
leave the shop and continue west. Go down and talk to a group of Toads 
talking about how to find the Shy Guy's hideout. They suggest checking in 
houses and becoming invisible, so start by entering the house directly north 
of here.

Once inside that abandoned house, get Bow as your partner and become 
transparent. A Shy Guy will come in and reveal the hideout, not knowing 
you're there watching. After it disappears into the wall, check out the wall 
to enter a hidden room. Jump on the trampoline and you'll bounce into the 
giant toy box, which starts Chapter 4!


================================
Chapter 4: Trials in the Toy Box
================================

Shy Guy's Toy Box
-----------------

As soon as you land inside of this giant area, save your game at the Save 
Block nearby. Then, take the path down and left into the next area. Go left 
and defeat a Shy Guy, then talk to the gray Anti Guy standing by the chest. 
Choose to fight him (read the Bosses section for help), then open the chest 
after you win to get the Power Plus Badge. I really recommend you remove the 
badges you don't need to make space for this one, since it's REALLY useful!

Go left and defeat a Groove Guy, then continue into the next room. Here, go 
left and defeat the Shy Guys running around with stolen items. Beat them all 
to gain two Cake Mixes, a Fire Flower, a Mushroom, and the stolen Calculator. 
Now, go back right and out of this room, and make your way back to the first 
room with the trampoline. From there, go all the way right and take that path 
to the next room. You'll see a scene where Kammy Koopa will drop one of the 
items Mario "hates" in front of the chest up ahead.

After she leaves, go right and defeat the Shy Guy, then jump on the block 
against the wall in the corner. Spin Jump it to bounce onto the higher ledge. 
From there, jump onto the next block and Spin Jump it to bounce across the 
gap. Now, continue to the right and defeat the Sky Guy that you see. Keep 
going and you'll see three large buildings. Enter the middle one and jump up 
the steps to reach the roof.

From there, go right and jump to the other roof, then go right and drop down 
to the ground. Continue right and grab the item Kammy dropped by the chest, 
then open the chest to get the Storeroom Key. Now, go back left to the wall 
and Spin Jump on the block to bounce onto the high wall. Then, continue all 
the way left through here and back to the first room. There, jump on the 
trampoline to exit the toy box.


Toad Town
---------

When you come back out here, exit this house and go right to the shop. Enter 
it and give the shopkeeper the Storeroom Key. As thanks, he'll let you take 
whatever you want from the storeroom. So, go back there and take the Toy 
Train, as well as the other three items if you want them. Now, leave the room 
and the shop altogether. Go east to the next area of town, then go east and 
north to the following area. Go up and left into Rowf's Badge Shop, and give 
him the Calculator to get the I Spy Badge as a reward.

Leave this place and go back south and west to the abandoned house again. Go 
west and enter the house, then go into the hidden room and press A next to 
the toy box. Drop the Toy Train inside, then use the trampoline and jump into 
it yourself.


Shy Guy's Toy Box
-----------------

Back in the toy box, go right and up and talk to the mushroom guy standing on 
the blue platform. He'll tell you that the train fell on the tracks and is 
now able to run fully. At the bottom of the blue platform, there are two 
switches, each pointing in a different direction. Step on the right one, then 
talk to that guy again and you'll be taken to the Pink Station. When you 
arrive there, go down and save your game to the left. Then, go all the way 
right and open the chest to find the Mailbag. Now, go down and right into the 
next room.

Here, go right and defeat the Sky Guy, then continue to the wall and Spin 
Jump on the block to reach the upper ledge. Go left and defeat another Sky 
Guy, then open the chest at the end to get the Defend Plus Badge. Go all the 
way to the right and Spin Jump on the box to bounce over the barrier and down 
to the lower area. Go right a little more and you'll see a blue wall panel in 
the background. It rotates when a Shy Guy on the other side comes through it. 
Wait for it to rotate, then run through it into the back, then follow the 
path to the right. Hit the block to get a Coin, then go around the barrier 
and open the chest to get the Ice Power Badge.

Continue right and pick up the item Kammy dropped there for you, then open 
the chest to get the Frying Pan. Now, go back to the left and around the 
path, then go through the revolving panel again. Go left and Spin Jump on the 
block to jump over the wall, then continue left to the next room. Here, go 
left and up to the train station. Hit the blue switch and talk to the 
mushroom guy to go back to Blue Station. When you arrive there, use the 
trampoline and exit this place.


Toad Town
---------

Back outside again, exit this house and head all the way east to the next 
area of town. Go right and enter Tayce T's house at the intersection. Give 
her the Frying Pan, and she'll bake you a Cake as a reward. Leave her house 
and go north to the next area. Follow the path up and enter the Post Office 
next to the Toad House. Give the Mailbag to the guy behind the counter to get 
a Star Piece in return. Now, leave this place and go back south to the next 
area. Go south and west to the following area. Go all the way left and enter 
the abandoned house, then go into the hidden room and jump into the toy box 
once again.


Shy Guy's Toy Box
-----------------

Back inside the large toy box, go right to the station and get to the Pink 
Station (hit the right switch). When you arrive there, go left and save your 
game, then follow the path going left into the next area. Head left and jump 
onto the block formation, then hit the floating block at the top to get a 
Coin. Continue left and defeat a Spy Guy, then go left into the next area. In 
this room, go all the way left and you'll find a giant Shy Guy sitting on the 
tracks. Talk to him, and he'll say he's called Gourmet Guy. Give him the Cake 
Tayce T. made you and he'll become very hyper and runs away. Pick up the 
Cookbook he leaves behind, then go up the path you can now access and take 
the opposite path.

To the left of the large block, jump in the air to reveal a hidden block 
containing a Super Soda. Now, take the right path and hit the two blocks to 
get two Coins. Also, jump in the air between the two to reveal another hidden 
block with a Dizzy Dial. Continue right into the next room, and in that room, 
continue to the right and defeat the Groove Guy you see. Keep going and hit 
the blocks to get Coins, then defeat the Pyro Guy you run into. Then, 
continue right into the next room. There, check out the lever to make the 
track rotate around, giving you access to the Green Station.

Now, go back left through the previous rooms, then down the path where 
Gourmet Guy was. From there, continue all the way east to the large room with 
the Pink Station. Save your game and hit the right switch in front of the 
station, then talk to the mushroom guy and head to Green Station. Upon 
arrival at the Green Station, go down and save your game nearby. Then, hit 
the four colored blocks from left to right to make Coins pop out of them. 
Now, go right and down into the next area. Once again, you'll see Kammy Koopa 
placing an item in front of a chest at the other end of the room.

Anyway, head right and Spin Dash along the conveyor belts to progress. Make 
Bow your partner and become transparent to pass through the last wired fence 
at the end. Then, defeat the Shy Guy and take the Mystery Note it was 
carrying. Now, go right and hit the Start block to play the slot machine if 
you like. Then, continue to the right and jump onto the giant blocks that 
move up and down. Get to the top of the tall blue one in the upper-right 
corner, then use Parakarry to fly right onto the next ledge. Go right and 
take the item Kammy dropped, and open the chest to get the Dictionary.

Now, go back left and across the rising and falling platforms again. Continue 
left and down the steps, then use Bow and become transparent to get through 
the fence. Continue across the conveyor belts and into the next room. At the 
Green Station, hit the left switch and ride all the way to the Blue Station. 
Once there, use the trampoline to exit the toy box again.


Toad Town
---------

Back in the regular world, leave this house and head east all the way to the 
next area. Continue east and north to the following area, then head west to 
the first area of Toad Town. Go left and up and enter Russ T's house (the one 
behind the pipe to Mario's place). Give him the Dictionary and he'll give you 
a Star Piece as thanks. Also, give him the Mystery Note and he'll translate 
what it says for you ("Hit yellow, green, red, and then blue."). After that, 
leave the house and go back around Toad Town to reach the abandoned house 
again. Enter the house and jump back into the toy box.


Shy Guy's Toy Box
-----------------

When you enter the toy box once again, go right to the Blue Station and hit 
the right switch. Then, get on the train and ride it to the Green Station. 
Once there, you'll see those four colored blocks down and to the right. Hit 
them in this order: yellow, green red, and blue. Doing so will cause a wall 
to fall on the hole in the track, allowing the train to reach the next 
station. Go up to the Green Station and hit the right switch, then ride to 
the Red Station. When you get there, go right and hit the Heart Block, then 
save your game.

Then, head down and left into the next room. Here, defeat the Pyro Guy to the 
left, then go to the back wall and jump on the block. Jump onto the moving 
platform and ride it upward, then jump onto the wall and left to a few 
platforms spinning in a circle. Get to the left side and jump onto the next 
wall. Next, drop down the left side to the ground, then go left and hit the 
blocks to get some Coins. Jump in between the blocks to reveal a hidden one 
containing a Deep Focus Badge. Now, go left and onto the block against the 
wall. Jump onto the platform when it lowers and ride it up, then go over the 
wall and into the next room.

In this dark room, you'll hear a voice, then the Big Lantern Ghost will walk 
towards you and fight you. Read the Bosses section for help on beating it. 
After you win, the giant ghost will run away scared, leaving its lantern on 
the floor. Go and talk to the lantern and it'll introduce itself as Watt. It 
wants to escape the lantern, so hit it with the Hammer to free it. After a 
quick conversation, Watt will join your party!

Now, use its ability by pressing C-Down to light up the room, then head right 
to exit this room. Back in this room, jump on the moving platform and get 
onto the wall at the top. Then, go right and jump onto the platform that goes 
even higher. Ride that one to its peak, then use Parakarry to fly to the 
right ledge. There, hit the Super Block and upgrade Watt's abilities right 
away!

After that, continue right through this room using the moving platforms to 
help you. Jump over the last wall and go right into the next room. There, go 
right and use the Heart/Save Blocks. Then, take the path down and right into 
the next room. Upon entering this room, you'll see a Shy Guy run and jump 
over the high wall to the right. Go right and use Bombette to destroy the 
cracked block, then you'll see the huge squad of Shy Guys running away. Go 
right and you'll see a large green block with a number 5 on it. Use Watt's 
power to reveal a hidden block to the right of that, then hit it to get a 
Coin.

Go back to the left of the green block and Spin Jump on the small block to 
the left of it to bounce onto the top of the green block. Go right and jump 
onto the block, then use Kooper's Shell Toss to break the block to the right. 
Drop down and collect the Shooting Star, then continue right. Defeat a Spy 
Guy and hit the block in the corner to get a Sleepy Sheep. After that, 
continue right into the next room. In this room, use Watt to illuminate the 
area, then go right. The Shy Guys that ran away before will be against the 
wall with nowhere to run. They'll crash through the wall and run into another 
room to get away. Follow them into that last room.

The Shy Guys and their leader, General Guy, will be there waiting for you. 
After a brief talk, he'll send his troops after you. Read the Bosses section 
for help on winning against General Guy and his army. After you win, the Shy 
Guys will all run away and the fourth Star Spirit card will appear. Grab the 
card and you'll finish Chapter 4! You may now save your game as well. The 
next scene opens up in Princess Peach's Castle as usual.


Princess Peach's Castle
-----------------------

When the scene opens here, it'll show Peach and Twink talking again. Peach 
then decides to try and sneak out to get help for Mario. So, go through that 
secret passage to Bowser's room. From there, go right and out into the main 
area. Get across to the lower-right area of the room without being seen by 
the guards, then enter that room. There, you'll run into the giant Gourmet 
Guy. He'll keep the fact Peach is out of her room if she cooks him something 
to eat. He'll also give you the Castle Key to get down to the kitchen. So, 
leave this room and go left to the locked door. Open it with the Castle Key, 
then go through it to get downstairs.

Go down the steps and head right to the wall without being seen. Go up the 
steps to the side and enter the room you come across. You'll see the dresser 
there shaking, so check it out and Toad will come out. He'll talk for a 
moment before jumping back into the closet. After that, open the nearby chest 
to get the Last Stand Badge, then leave the room. Go around and down to the 
floor, then go back up the main stairs and up to the second floor. There, go 
right and enter the rightmost room. There, put the badge you found in the 
giant chest, then leave the room. Go back down to the first floor.

There, go down the stairs and hug the balcony and enter the room to the right 
of the main stairs without the guard catching you. You are now in the 
kitchen, and Twink will help Princess Peach cook the recipe (the ingredients 
are on the back table; follow Twink's directions to make the cake). After you 
finish with it all, pick it up and leave the room. You'll automatically end 
up in the dining room with Gourmet Guy. After he eats the pie, he'll tell you 
about the next Star Spirit's location, and about the creature guarding it. 
When Gourmey Guy leaves, Kammy will come in and send the Princess back to her 
room.


Toad Town
---------

Back outside in Toad Town, the Star Spirit Muskular thanks you for saving 
him. He'll also raise your Star Power level to 4, and teach you the Chill Out 
ability. After that, Twink will appear and he'll talk to Muskular really 
quick out of respect. Muskular will leave, and Twink will give your the news 
about the next Star Spirit. After he leaves, you'll have control again, so 
head east to the next area of town.

Go right and enter Tayce T's house, then give her the Cookbook, which allows 
her to cook with two ingredients at once. After that, leave the house and 
continue all the way north and through the blue gate.


Shooting Star Summit
--------------------

Here, follow the path north and east, then continue east and take the south 
path to Merluvlee's house. Open the large chest and take out the Last Stand 
Badge. Then, go trade with Merlon if you want, otherwise leave the house and 
return to Toad Town.


Toad Town
---------

When you get back into town, head south all the way to the next area. There, 
go down to the lone Toad standing there, then go left and down the pipe into 
the Toad Town Tunnels.


Toad Town Tunnels
-----------------

When you enter the tunnels this time, go left and Spin Jump the boarded up 
section of floor to fall through to the area below. There, go left and into 
the next room. Defeat the Dark Koopas here to make a switch fall from the 
ceiling. Hit it to make a pipe come out, which acts as a shortcut to Boo's 
Mansion. Since there isn't anything else further ahead of importance for now, 
head right to the previous room. Go through the pipe back up to the entrance 
room, then go right and in that pipe to exit the tunnels for now.


Toad Town
---------

Back here, go right and up, then back to the west along the path to the next 
area of town. Head left through here like you're going into the abandoned 
house again, but instead keep going to the following area. There, go left and 
down on the docks and you'll find Kolorado standing there. Talk to him and 
he'll tell you he wants to go to Lavalava Island, but can't figure out how to 
get there. So, go right and onto the back of a whale, then Spin Jump on it. 
It'll surface and complain about something in its belly. Help it by going 
inside of its mouth.

There, go right and into the next room. Use Watt to light up the room, where 
you'll find a Fuzzipede bouncing around in the large area. Catch it and you 
will do battle against it. Beat it, and the whale will send all three of you 
out of its stomach and onto the dock again. The Fuzzipede will leave and the 
whale will repay the favor by taking you anywhere. Kolorado will ask you to 
accompany him to Lavalava Island, and the whale will take you. Talk to the 
whale when you're ready, and you'll be off to Chapter 5!


===========================================
Chapter 5: Hot Hot Times on Lavalava Island
===========================================

Lavalava Island Beach
---------------------

When you arrive on this island, Kolorado will run off to Mt. Lavalava, 
leaving you to explore for now. Check out the thin plants nearby and they'll 
give you Hearts to recover your health with. Then, head south and into the 
next area. There, go right and you'll hear someone screaming for help. Hit 
the trees in the background with your hammer to get some Coconuts, then jump 
onto the rock formation and grab the Letter at the top. Get back down and 
defeat the Jungle Fuzzy that's bothering Kolorado, then he'll run ahead to 
the next area. So, follow him into the next area, which is Yoshi's Village.


Yoshi's Village
---------------

When you enter this village, head south and east on the dock to the next 
small island. Continue right to the following one, then talk to the Village 
Leader there (the green Yoshi). He'll give you a hint about where Mt. 
Lavalava is, but he says it's difficult to reach it. Now, head right and into 
the next area of the village. Talk to the Yoshis here if you want, and use 
the trampoline and talk to the ravens atop the tree. Then go right and enter 
the shop and buy some items if you want. Save your game nearby, then continue 
east to the next area.

Here, you'll hear Kolorado screaming again, so head right and defeat the 
Spear Guy bothering him. Kolorado will run to the right, so follow him and 
talk to him again. You will find there's no way to enter the volcano just 
yet. For now, head back to the left, making sure to check behind the large 
tree to find a Jammin' Jelly. Now, continue west into the village again. Go 
left and you'll see the Yoshis in a frenzy because the younger ones got lost 
in the jungle. Talk to Kolorado and he'll suggest you help them before asking 
about the volcano. So, take the north path into Jade Jungle.


Jade Jungle
-----------

In this area, go up and defeat the Hurt Plant pretending to be a Heart Plant, 
then go to the bushes and press A to clear a path through them. Then, follow 
the path up and right into the next area. You'll hear someone screaming when 
you enter this area, so go right across the bridge and you'll look up to find 
the fish that was watching the young Yoshis stuck there. Hit the tree three 
times with your Hammer to make the fish come down, then talk to her (the name 
is Sushie) and she'll join your party! With your new party member, go on the 
wooden platform and press C-Down to swim around in the water. Use this time 
to swim around and get used to swimming/diving on Sushie.

Use this new skill and make your way to the island in the northeast area of 
this place. Dock there and grab the Star Piece, then hit the tree and grab 
the Letter that falls out. Now, get back on Sushie and swim back south to the 
first dock you came from. From there, go back left across the bridges and 
into the previous area. Here, go left and swim to the middle island, then 
dock there. Defeat the Spear Guy and hit the block to get the Power Quake 
Badge. Get back on Sushie and swim to the left, then dive under the bridge 
and continue to the next area. Swim left and dive under the next bridge, then 
continue all the way left and dock at the middle island.

Defeat the Spear Guy and head right and down across the bridges to the island 
with the Super Block. Upgrade Sushie right away, then go back around to the 
dock. Swim south to the other dock, then on that island, go north and press A 
to get through the rows of bushes. Watch out for the M. Bush hiding there. 
Check behind the bushes at the end to find the pink Yoshi. After that, go 
back to the dock and swim north to the other dock. Jump onto the land there 
and follow the path north across the bridge and into the next area. Here, 
you'll see a Coin sitting on a plant nearby; do NOT take it because it's a 
trap where you'll lose HP!

Anyway, go north and press A at the line of bushes to clear a path, then 
continue to the dock. From there, swim west to the other dock and get off at 
that point. Go right and jump onto the spinning flower, then press Z to float 
up to the higher ledge. Defeat the Spear Guy, then check behind the bushes to 
reveal a pipe. Go down it and use Watt to light the room. Go right and up the 
ledges to find the green Yoshi.

After the Yoshi runs home, exit this cave and go south, then drop down to the 
lower area. Use Sushie and swim west into the next area. There, swim left 
onto the dock, then go left and hit the stump with your Hammer to make a 
bridge appear. Go across it and you'll find the blue Yoshi. Talk to it, then 
after it leaves, head back east to the dock. Swim right to the previous area 
again. There, swim all the way to the east to the second dock, then surface 
and walk right into the next area.

In this new area, go right and defeat the Spear Guy, then hit the stump with 
the Hammer to make a bridge appear across the water. Cross it and defeat the 
Hurt Plant at the other side, then continue east and defeat the Jungle Fuzzy. 
From there, follow the path into the next area. As soon as you enter the 
area, you'll hear a cry for help since the yellow Yoshi is being trapped by a 
couple Putrid Piranhas. Defeat them, then the Yoshi will run back home to the 
village. Follow suit and return to the previous area.

There, go left across the first bridge, then use the south dock and swim west 
to another one. From there, head south into the next area. You'll hear the 
sound of someone sleeping here. Go left and hit the tree with your Hammer to 
make the bluish Yoshi fall out. After he leaves, your Yoshi-saving mission 
will be complete! So, go south across the bridge, then hit the stump to form 
another bridge. heading to the east. Go across it, then follow the path east 
into Yoshi's Village again.


Yoshi's Village
---------------

When you arrive in the village again, everything will be calm and back to 
normal again. Go down and right and visit the Toad House to recover, then 
save your game. Now, go west into the next area of the village. Go down and 
west across the bridge to where the Village Leader was earlier. So, head 
north and across that bridge, then talk to the Village Leader. He'll give you 
the Jade Raven, which you can use in the Jade Jungle. After a long talk, go 
back south and east into the next area. There, go north and into the jungle 
again.


Jade Jungle
-----------

When you enter the jungle again, head west and across that log bridge. At the 
other side, follow the path north and into the next area. Here, go up to the 
dock and jump into the water with Sushie. Swim north and dive under the 
bridge, then jump out at the dock to the north. Go up to the raven statue and 
use the Jade Raven to open up the path behind it. Now, go north and into the 
new area of the jungle. In this area, go right and defeat the Spear Guy you 
see. Then, go up to the two large bushes to the left of the tree and press A 
to move them. From there, continue up into the next area.

Here, you will find several blue blocks throughout this area, along with some 
holes in the ground. There is a geyser coming out of one of the holes as 
well. Push a blue block onto the geyser, which will make another geyser erupt 
from one of the other holes. Keep covering the geysers until a giant rock in 
the background is moved by a geyser. Push a block onto that one so you can 
pass it, then head north into the next area. Here, you'll see a bunch of 
trees with a vine hanging from each one. Go around and jump on the vines to 
get a Fire Flower, a Mushroom, and a couple encounters with Jungle Fuzzies.

Pull the vine on the second tree from the right to reveal a path to the next 
area. So, follow that path ahead into a new area. Here, use the Heart Plants 
to recover your health, then head right and you'll hear someone screaming. 
Continue right to find three Putrid Piranhas standing guard. Go up to them 
and you'll enter battle against them, along with a W Magikoopa. Defeat them 
all, then continue right into the next area. In this next area, you'll be at 
the bottom of a giant tree. Go right and enter the cave at the bottom of it. 
There, save your game, then start jumping up the ledges along the walls of 
the tree.

Go all the way to the top, then exit the tree to reach the next area at the 
top. Follow the path right and up around the tree, and you'll see another 
cave you can enter. Continue up to the end and grab the Happy Heart Badge, 
then go back and enter that cave you passed. Go up the steps to the very top, 
then go right into the following area. There, go right and talk to the giant 
raven sitting in its nest. The giant raven will introduce itself as Raphael 
the Raven, and he'll help you reach the volcano. He'll call the other small 
ravens to help, then they'll all jump down into the jungle, so go off the 
ledge and follow them.

Talk to Raphael when you land and he'll move a root of the tree out of the 
way. Then, follow the giant bird into the next area. Go right and talk to him 
once more and the ravens will start to help you. They'll build a lift in the 
tree, which will allow you to reach the volcano easily. Kolorado will also 
come by to see what's going on. After they're done, Kolorado will move on 
ahead into the volcano, and Raphael will give you the Ultra Stone, which 
gives you the ability to Ultra Rank your party members when you come across a 
Super Block.

After the birds leave, jump into the lift to the top, then go right to the 
end of the branch. Jump onto the rope and you'll slide down and right to the 
ledge in front of the volcano. Use the Heart Block and continue ahead into 
the volcanic Mt. Lavalava.


Mt. Lavalava
------------

When you enter this volcano, start by heading right along the path. A Putrid 
Piranha will come out and spot you, then it'll disappear. So, continue into 
the next area where you will find Kolorado again. He'll try to jump across 
the rocks, but will sink into the lava and get burnt. Before you continue, 
it's highly recommended you put on the Ice Power Badge if you haven't 
already. Head right and jump across the rocks in the lava before they sink. 
On the large platform, wait until the small moving platform to the right 
comes near, then jump on it and ride to the other side of the room. Defeat 
the Lava Bubble on the next platform, then continue by jumping across the 
rocks in the lava.

At the end, just continue into the following room. In this room, jump on the 
rope and slide down to the end. Once there, continue right into the next 
room. Here, go right along the path while jumping over the fire walls that 
are spinning around. Hit the Super Block at the end and you'll be able to 
Ultra Rank one of your partners (since you haven't gained new ones yet, and 
your current ones all have Super Rank already). Upgrade Sushie right now, 
then go back left to the previous room. Here, go left and jump onto the block 
at the edge of the platform. Use Kooper's Shell Toss ability to hit the block 
in the air to the left, causing the POW Block to fall to the ground.

Drop down and get it, then defeat the Spike Tops spinning around. Then, 
follow the path down and left past the trampoline, then continue right and 
down to the Save Block. Save, then jump onto the rope to the left and start 
sliding downward. Along the way, there's a ledge you can jump off the rope 
and land on to collect a badge. Ride the rope until you pass under the second 
step that is above you, then press A to jump off and you should land on that 
ledge. Collect the Fire Shield Badge (equip this one ASAP), then drop down to 
the lower area and defeat a Spike Top. Defeat a Putrid Piranha to the right, 
then head westward into the next area.

Here, just follow the path all the way down and into the following area. In 
the next room, go up onto the higher ledge and use Watt to reveal a hidden 
block. Hit it and get the Life Shroom, then go left and have Parakarry fly 
you over the lava. There, push the blue blocks to the right, starting with 
the rightmost one, so they form a line across the lava. Doing so will also 
cause the flow to slow down, which will give you access to the lower area of 
the room. Go back right and down to the lower area. From there, go left and 
have Parakarry fly you across the lava river again, then continue into the 
next room. Here, go directly to the left and push the first block into the 
lava. Then, push the other block across that one to form a type of bridge.

Stand on that bridge you formed and ues Parakarry to fly to the other side, 
then go up the path and open the chest to get the Ultra Hammer! Now you'll be 
able to destroy the metal blocks, and your Hammer power is stronger as well. 
Go right and destroy that metal block, then exit this room. Go left and have 
Parakarry fly you across the lava river again. At the other side, go right 
and take the path going downstairs, then destroy the metal block and enter 
that room. Go right and fly across the lava here as well, then jump up the 
ledges and open the chest on the high ledge to get the Dizzy Stomp Badge. 
Now, go back left across the lava and into the previous room. Go up and right 
into the following room, then go all the way up the hill into the room after 
that.

In this room, go all the way to the right and jump onto the trampoline to 
reach the upper areas of the room again. Talk to Kolorado, then break the 
metal block and he'll become happy. Save your game, then enter the next room. 
Go right and Kolorado will come in and jump off the ledge to land far below. 
Anyway, jump on the rope and start sliding to the right. When you pass 
through the ray of light on the wall, press A to jump off, and you should 
land on a ledge with a Super Block below. Upgrade one of your other party 
members here, although I recommend you do either Bow or Watt for now.

After that, drop down and go left to find Kolorado on the floor, then leave 
this room. Bounce on the trampoline nearby to get back up, then save again 
and enter the room to the right. From there, slide down all the way to the 
end and continue into the next room. Here, go right and a giant spiked rock 
will start rolling down the hill to chase you. Head down and right as fast as 
you can to the following room, where you'll be safe. In the next room, jump 
right onto the moving platform when it comes near, then jump off at the other 
side. Go right past the spinning fire bars and defeat the Lava Bubbles along 
the way. At the end, wait for the moving platform to appear while jumping 
over the fire bar when it spins toward you. Jump onto the platform and ride 
it to the other side, then jump off and enter the next room.

Here, go right and defeat the Spike Top and Putrid Piranhas, then go right to 
the bottom of the hill in the background. Follow the path all the way right, 
then Kolorado will run up to you again. After that, push the blue block all 
the way back to the left as far as it'll go. At that point, jump onto the 
block and onto the higher ledge, then go up the hill, destroying the metal 
blocks in your way. After you destroy the last block, the spiked round thing 
will start rolling, so run down the hill and get out of the way. It'll come 
down the path and crush Kolorado, then make a hole in the wall to the right. 
Now, head right and into the next room. There, go right and Kolorado will 
come out once again, running ahead into another room which wasn't explored 
yet by you.

Follow him into the next room, then hit the two blocks there to get a Super 
Shroom and Maple Syrup. Go back to the previous room and hit the Heart Block, 
then go down and left along the lower path. At the bottom, save your game, 
then head all the way right into the next room. Before you continue, make 
sure that Sushie is your current partner. Then, continue through this room 
and the Lava Piranha will come out of a pool of lava at the other end of the 
room. You'll then enter battle against it, so read the Bosses section for 
help on winning. After you beat it, Kolorado will run ahead and the Star 
Spirit card will come out for you to take. Grab the card and you'll free 
Misstar, the fifth Star Spirit, ending Chapter 5!

Although you found the Star Spirit, the adventure in the volcano hasn't ended 
yet! A rumbling will occur and the place will start to shake, then Misstar 
will rush to the next room, for you to follow her. Go into the next room and 
jump up the steps to the top platform, then Kolorado will whine about finding 
treasure, but will realize he can't go back since the lava is rising. Use 
Bombette to blow open the cracked wall, then continue into the next room.

Go right and up the steps quickly, then you'll see Kolorado trying to reach a 
chest on a high ledge. Misstar will pull him, along with you and your 
partner, out of the volcano just as it starts erupting. The treasure will be 
sent into the Jade Jungle as well. You may now save your game.


Princess Peach's Castle
-----------------------

When the scene opens inside the castle again, the Princess will be planning 
to sneak out again with Twink. So, sneak out of the room through the hidden 
passageway. When you get to Bowser's room, go right and exit to reach the 
main area of the second floor. From there, go south and through the middle 
door to get downstairs to the first floor. There, go down the main staircase 
and without being seen by the guards, go to the left side of the room and 
into the room there. You'll run into a guard in that room, and before he 
tries bringing you away, a Hammer Bro will come and suggest the guard asks 
Peach to take part in their little quiz game. They'll bring her to the set to 
the left, and the game will start.

The object is to answer the 10 questions being asked to win. Scroll down to 
the Secrets section of the guide to find a list of those Q&A's. Also, you 
must buzz in (press A) quickly in order to get a chance to answer it, so be 
ready. After the 10 questions are up, the winner will be decided (which 
should be Peach if you answered the majority of the questions correctly). 
You'll win a Jammin' Jelly, and the host will give you the Sneaky Parasol.

At that point, King Bowser will come in and catch Princess Peach again, then 
order the guards to bring her back to her room.


Mt. Lavalava
------------

Back outside of Mt. Lavalava, Kolorado will be moping around because of the 
treasure he couldn't get. Misstar will scold him, then award Mario with a new 
Star Power, Smooch, as well as boost the Star Meter to level 5! After she 
leaves, follow Kolorado west all the way into Yoshi's Village again.


Yoshi's Village
---------------

In the village again, head to the left and save your game. Then, continue 
towards the Yoshi kids standing around, then follow the path north into Jade 
Jungle.


Jade Jungle
-----------

When you enter this jungle once again, go up to the line of bushes and press 
A to clear a path through them. Continue up and right into the next area. 
There, go right across the bridge and you'll find the treasure chest blown 
out of the volcano. Open it to find the Volcano Vase. Now, go back west to 
the previous area, then go south into the village again.


Yoshi's Village
---------------

In the village, go down and talk to Kolorado. Give him the Volcano Vase and 
he'll become happy and give you the Magical Seed as thanks. He'll then run 
off, ready to go back to Toad Town. So, go down and left to the next area. 
Make your way to the other side of this area, then go north to exit the 
village completely.


Lavalava Island Beach
---------------------

Back on the beach of this island, go west and defeat the Jungle Fuzzies you 
come across. Continue into the next area, then go up and talk to the whale 
and choose to go back to Toad Town again. After you guys board the whale, the 
annoying Jr. Troopa will swim onto the shore and wants to do battle with you. 
By the time he turns around, you are long gone!


Toad Town
---------

When you, your partner, and Kolorado arrive in Toad Town, Kolorado will run 
on home to Koopa Village. Meanwhile, Jr. Troopa will catch up to you and want 
to do battle. Read the Bosses section for help on winning against him. After 
you win, go north and save your game, then continue east to the next area of 
town. There, just continue all the way east along the path into the following 
area. Go right some more, then down and left into Toad Town Tunnels.


Toad Town Tunnels
-----------------

This time, you have A LOT to do when visiting these underground tunnels! 
Start by going left into the next room. Run through this room to the 
following room, then in that room, go left and ride the moving platform up to 
the higher ledge. From there, continue into the next room. Here, go right and 
drop down to the lower area, then go right and down the pipe to the next 
room. Go right and destroy the metal block, then go up the steps and hit the 
Super Block. Choose to upgrade one of your other party members right now to 
Ultra Rank (I did Bow here).

After you're done there, it's time to backtrack a bit. Go back through the 
tunnels the same way you came, all the way to the very first room you 
entered. When you get there, drop through the hole in the floor to reach the 
next room. There, go left into the next room. In that room, continue all the 
way left into the following room. Here, use Watt to reveal the three hidden 
blocks in the air in the room.

You'll notice that there is a blue block on the floor. Remember where the 
hidden ones were and push the blue block under each one, then jump onto the 
block and into the air to reveal it. Do that for all three blocks, then go 
right and up the steps, and jump across the blocks to the other side. There, 
use the Super Block and upgrade another party member (this time, I'd say 
Parakarry). After that, backtrack to the right a couple rooms to the room you 
fell into from above. There, go right and use Sushie to jump in the water 
from the dock. Once at the other side, the Super Blooper will appear and 
attack. Read the Bosses section for help on defeating it.

After you win, hit the switch that appears to make a pipe come out of the 
floor, which will warp you to Yoshi's Village if you go down it. Now, go 
right and into the next room.

In this room, go right and defeat the Dark Koopas you come across. Continue 
right and into the next room. There, go down the steps and head right across 
the room, then go down the pipe into the room below. Have Bombette destroy 
the wall to the right, then enter that hidden room. Here, you'll meet Rip 
Cheato, a guy who sells you stuff for 64 Coins apiece, without telling you 
what you'll get until you pay. Check out the Secrets section for a list of 
what items you get in what order. Do what you want here, then go right and 
into the pipe to emerge in Toad Town again.


Toad Town
---------

When you get back here, you'll be inside a house with a locked door. Grab the 
Odd Key from behind a box, then unlock the door and go outside. There, go 
east and north to the next area of town. As soon as you enter this area, go 
right into the Flower Garden and talk to Minh T. Give her each of the four 
Magical Seeds, and she'll plant each of them. After she plants them all, a 
magical doorway will appear in the middle of the garden leading to Flower 
Fields. When you're ready, go through the door and into Chapter 6!


=====================================
Chapter 6: Dark Days in Flower Fields
=====================================

Flower Fields
-------------

When you enter this colorful field of nothing but flowers, the giant tree you 
came out of will talk to you. It'll tell you about Huff N. Puff and how he's 
causing trouble in the Flower Fields. He'll direct you to find Petunia in the 
east to get a Magical Bean to reach Cloud Climb. After you're done here, go 
right and save your game. Then, take the path going directly east into the 
next area. Here, go right and defeat the Crazee Dayzee and Bzzap! You'll 
notice three pink trees along the way. Hit them in the following order with 
your Hammer: middle, right, left. Doing so will earn you the Happy Flower 
Badge.

After that, continue east into the next area. Here, go right and talk to the 
sad flower to hear about her problem, which is with the Monty Moles and a 
Crazee Dayzee here. Offer to help, and then chase down and defeat the four 
Monty Moles and the Crazee Dayzee. After you do all that, talk to Petunia the 
flower again and it'll give you the Magical Bean. When the plant stops 
talking, go up to the tree in the back and Hammer it to get the Red Berry. 
Then, backtrack west a couple areas to the large main area again.

There, save your game and take the southwest path into the next area. Go left 
and talk to the red flower, then give it the Red Berry to make it open the 
gate. Then, continue left and defeat the enemies along the way. When you pass 
by the tree alongside the path, hit it and grab a Yellow Berry. Then, 
continue into the next area. Go left and talk to Posie, the flower underneath 
the crystalized tree. It'll give you the Fertile Soil for talking to it. Now, 
go back right to the previous area, then continue all the way to the large 
middle area of this place.

When you get back to the middle area, save your game once again. Now, take 
the southeast path into the next area. Go right and give the yellow plant the 
Yellow Berry, and it'll open the gate for you. Go right and jump across the 
first couple gaps, then use Parakarry to fly over the other ones. At the end, 
go up and left along the upper path and defeat the Crazee Dayzees there. Hit 
the Super Block at the far left and upgrade a party member to Ultra Rank (I 
did this for Bombette here). This is also the only area in the game where you 
can meet the rare Amazee Dayzee enemy; it runs away after one round, but if 
you can kill it quickly, you will be greatly rewarded.

After that, go all the way back to the right, then down to the ground area. 
Go right and hit the tree with your Hammer to get a Blue Berry. Also, walk in 
the flowers to the right of the tree to get a Star Piece, then continue into 
the next area. Here, hit the nearby block to get a Dizzy Dial. Since you 
can't reach the middle tree right now, go down and right across the room, 
then up the stairs at the other side. Then, just keep going into the 
following area. Here, go right and drop down to the lower area, then talk to 
the fat plant there named Lily. It'll be talking to itself, then realize 
you're there and ask you for help. Offer to find the Water Stone, then go 
left and up to the flower-covered area.

Follow the path all the way around the area, then hit the tree with the 
Hammer to get Jammin' Jelly. Now, go back around and left out of this area. 
Continue all the way west through the next couple areas until you arrive in 
the main area with the save block again. There, save the game once again, 
then head along the path directly west into a new area. In this area, give 
the plant guarding the path a Blue Berry to open the gate. Continue left and 
defeat the Spiny you come across. Go left, making sure not to hit the block 
in the air just yet. To the left of it, jump in the air to reveal a hidden 
one. Use the trampoline nearby to jump onto it, then jump right onto the 
first block and up in the air to reveal another hidden block with a Shooting 
Star inside.

Take it, then drop down and continue left into the next area. There, you'll 
see a giant hedge maze and two Lakitus overhead arguing about something they 
dropped in the maze. They'll spot you and engage in battle. Defeat them, then 
they'll fly away. Now you have to go through the hedge maze. As a quick note, 
jump up and down often to keep track of where Mario is located. From the 
start, go left, up, and take the first left turn. Follow the path left and 
up, then left a tiny bit. Go south through the middle of the hedges to go 
through them, then follow that path south while holding to the right. Take 
the first right turn, then go right and down while holding Left on the 
Control Stick. You'll find another hidden passage into the middle of the 
formation by a pipe.

Go down the pipe and when you emerge, go left into the next area. Here, go 
left and talk to Rosie to find out it has the Water Stone. Rosie won't give 
it to you unless you get her something more beautiful than the stone, so now 
it's time to run around again. Head east to the hedge maze, and follow the 
same directions backwards to get out of it, then continue all the way east to 
the large middle area. There, go south and west and take that path to the 
next area. Go all the way west through here to the following area, then talk 
to Posie under the crystal tree. She'll help by shaking the roots of the 
crystal tree, causing a Crystal Berry to fall.

Take it, then head back south and east all the way to the middle area once 
again. Go up and take the west path all the way west and through the hedge 
maze again. Make your way back to Rosie and give that flower the Crystal 
Berry. You'll finally get the Water Stone in exchange for it. Now, go right 
and exit this area. Go back through the hedge maze like you did before, then 
continue all the way east through the next area. When you get to the large 
main area once again, save your game. This time take the southeast path 
straight to the next area.

Go right and have Parakarry fly you across each of the gaps, then continue 
into the following area. Go down the steps and head right across this room, 
then go up the steps and into the next area. Here, go right and drop down 
into the middle area, then talk to Lily. Use the Water Stone in the hole to 
your left to make the springs work again. The surrounding area of Flower 
Fields will become flooded with water as well. Lily will then give you some 
Miracle Water as a reward.

Now, go back left and into the now-flooded area you just came from. Go left 
and onto the dock, then hop on Sushie and swim to the dock in the middle. 
Jump out there and hit that tree to get a Bubble Berry. Then, go back onto 
the dock and swim to the left, then continue to the next area. Go left and 
use Parakarry to go over those gaps, then continue west to the main middle 
area. There, save your game one more time, then take the northwest path into 
the next area. Here, go left and talk to the bluish Bubble Plant. Give it a 
Bubble Berry and it'll make a giant bubble for you. Jump into it and you'll 
be carried across the patch of spiked vines.

At the other side, defeat the Bzzap!, then go up and right on the upper path. 
Go through the log, then collect the Star Piece at the end. Now, go back all 
the way left and continue into the next area. This next area can be one hell 
of a danger zone if you're not quick, and I mean it. Get past the Lakitu and 
the Spinies it throws at you, then go left and up the steps to the plateau on 
the top. Use Bombette to destroy the cracked rock there, then drop down into 
the room below and get the Mega Smash Badge.

Now, drop down to the ground and continue left past another Lakitu hovering 
overhead. Then, continue into the next area. In this area, go left and 
instead of going up the spiral steps, go around and under them to find a 
cracked rock. Have Bombette destroy it to open up a path to the top of the 
tower, then go back around and up the steps. Go all the way around and up to 
the very top, then talk to the sun there. It'll tell you that it can't rise 
because of the clouds created by the Puff Puff Machine.

After you're done talking, go back down to the ground and leave this area. 
Here, go right and a Lakitu will come up to you and talk. He'll introduce 
himself as Spike, although his regular name is Lakilester. You'll then enter 
battle against him, so read the Bosses section for help on winning this 
fight. After you win, the Lakitu will be moping around waiting for Mario to 
finish him off, but then his girlfriend flies in. Choose to forgive 
Lakilester, then when he asks you what you're fighting for, ask about his 
name. He'll then choose to join your group, and he'll be your newest partner!

Once Lakilester joins you, head east and out of this area. In this area, go 
all the way right and through the log, then use Lakilester's flying ability 
to float across the thorn patch. At the other side, continue right into the 
main area of Flower Fields. Go right and save your game, then take the 
southeast path to that area. Go right and fly over the pits with Lakilester, 
then hit the tree to get a Blue Berry. Now, go back to the middle area and 
this time, take the east path straight to the next area. Make your way east 
through the next couple areas, past Petunia, into the unexplored area you 
reach.

There, you'll find a well, so go up to it and drop the Blue Berry into it. 
Whoever was down there will freak out and throw you a badge as thanks. Take 
the Flower Saver Badge, then head west a few areas to reach the middle area 
once again. There, save your game one more time. Now, take the northeast path 
to the next area since you haven't gone there yet. In this area, go right and 
you'll have to get through a tough maze of green and red platforms that move 
up and down when you Spin Jump on them. Here's a quick list on how to get 
through all this rather quickly:

1. Spin Jump on the first red platform to make it rise.
2. Fly with Lakilester to the last green platform to the far right.
3. Spin Jump that green platform to make it rise.
4. Spin Jump the purple platform to your left to make it sink.
5. Fly back to the start of this with Lakilester.
6. Spin Jump on the first green platform to make it sink.
7. Fly back to the right side with Lakilester.
8. Spin Jump on the last green platform to make it rise.
9. Spin Jump on the purple platform to the right to reach the end.

If you do those nine steps successfully, you should be on the ledge at the 
other side. Go right and defeat the Ruff Puff, then go right and up into the 
second hole in the wall in the background. Go left and jump on the trampoline 
to reach the high ledge. Hit the Super Block and upgrade Lakilester to Super 
Rank right now. After that, drop down to the ground and continue to the next 
area. There, go right and through the log (or you can just fly straight 
across with Lakilester) while avoiding the Lakitus and Spinys that're around. 
On the second platform, grab the Letter, then continue east through this 
area. On the last one, use Watt to reveal a hidden block, then hit it to get 
Thunder Rage.

Now, continue into the next area. There, go right and you'll find the Puff 
Puff Machine and the Magikoopa and Lakitus watching it. Talk to them a few 
times and you'll enter battle against them all. Defeat them, then Lakilester 
will suggest you do something about the machine. Attack the machine on both 
sides with your Hammer several times until it all explodes, making the clouds 
disappear. The sun will rise and the flowers will all become happy again. Now 
that everything's fixed (at least down here), head west to the previous area. 
Use Lakilester and fly straight through this next area without touching the 
Spinys crawling around.

In the following area, fly down and across the thorns, then continue west to 
the main area of the fields. There, I suggest you save your game again. After 
that, talk to the large tree and it will tell you to plant the seed. Go 
southwest and you'll see a brown patch of dirt. Walk onto it and use the 
three items in the following order: Fertile Soil, Magical Bean, then Miracle 
Water. By doing that, a giant beanstalk will grow, leading into the clouds 
and Huff N. Puff. After it's done growing, jump onto the leaf at the bottom 
to ride up to Cloudy Climb, high above Flower Fields.


Cloudy Climb
------------

When you arrive in the clouds, you'll see a cloud moving up and down nearby. 
Go north and jump onto it, then ride it upward and jump onto the higher 
cloud. Grab the S. Jump Chg. Badge, then drop down and head east to the next 
area. Go right and jump up the clouds all the way to the end, then continue 
right to meet Huff N. Puff. It'll talk to you, then engage in battle, so read 
the Bosses section for help on winning this fight. After you win, the Star 
Spirit card will appear, so take it to free Klevar and beat Chapter 6! Now, 
you can save your game before the scene at Peach's Castle.


Princess Peach's Castle
-----------------------

When the next scene opens here again, you'll hear Peach and Twink again 
talking about sneaking out of the room. This time, she wants to use the 
Sneaky Parasol she won earlier. Twink will tell you how to use it (press B 
when facing someone to transform into them). After that, go through the 
hidden passage to get to Bowser's room again. Then, go right and into the 
main area of the second floor. There, go right and transform into one of the 
Koopa guards, then go around and talk to them to find out some information. 
Now, go up the steps along the sides of the room and talk to the guard in 
front of the middle door. After he moves, enter the next room.

Go right and up the steps, then talk to the next guard in front of another 
door. He'll tell you to find the Clubba guard and bring him up there. He'll 
also give you a Castle Key to get downstairs. Now, go back left and into the 
previous room. Go down the steps and go south through the middle door to get 
to the first floor. Go down the main set of stairs in front of you, then go 
straight and open the locked door. Exit the castle through that door and 
press B to become the Princess again.

Transform into the sleeping Clubba, then go back inside. Go straight up the 
steps and through the door to the second floor. From there, go up the steps 
to the side and talk to the Koopa guarding the door to the third floor. After 
he moves, enter that room and go all the way right and up the steps. Talk to 
the guard by the door and he'll leave. After that, enter the next room. Go 
right through this room (you'll remember this from the broken window after 
Bowser threw Mario out of it at the beginning of the game) and enter the 
following room at the end. Go up the stairs to the very top and go through 
the door to get onto the roof.

Go all the way left and you'll run into Kammy Koopa who comes out of the room 
at the other end. After she talks and starts to walk away, she'll get 
suspicious of your disguise and turn you into the Princess again. Kammy will 
make the guards bring her back to her room, and Twink will fly away.


Flower Fields
-------------

Meanwhile, back in Flower Fields, Klevar the Star Spirit will thank you for 
all you've done. He'll boost your star meter to Level 6, then give you the 
Time Out ability. After Klevar leaves, the giant tree will thank you as well. 
Then, go through the door at the base of the tree and return to Toad Town.


Toad Town
---------

Back in Toad Town, go left and out of the garden, then go north and west to 
the next area of town. Here, go south and use Sushie on the dock to jump in 
the water. Swim across the pond and pick up the Star Piece at the other end, 
then dock on the island in the middle. Go down the pipe there to enter a 
hidden room. Go all the way right and use the Super Block to upgrade 
Lakilester. After that, go back left and through the pipe to get outside. 
Swim to the right dock and go northeast to the next area. Go right and enter 
Merlon's house at the corner. You'll be just in time to meet a visitor from 
Starborn Valley.

He'll tell you that Merle wants to talk to you, and then he'll leave to get 
things ready for you. Merlon will tell you Merle is his son, and that there's 
a path in Toad Town Tunnels to get to Shiver City, which is near Starborn 
Valley. Now, leave the house and go east to find Kolorado. Talk to him and 
he'll tell you Kent C. Koopa is blocking the path to Koopa Village. So, 
continue east to the next area and you'll find the giant Koopa. Choose to 
fight it, then read the Bosses section for help on winning.

After you win, it'll run away, clearing the path to Koopa Village. Now, go 
back into Toad Town and head west and south to the following area. Go south 
to the intersection, then go left and enter the blue house and go down the 
pipe inside to enter the Toad Town Tunnels from another location.


Toad Town Tunnels
-----------------

When you enter the tunnels this time, you'll end up right in the room with 
Rip Cheato. If you haven't already, buy the first three items from him for 64 
Coins each to get the Bump Attack Badge. Then, go left into the next room. 
There, continue left and through the pipe into another room above. For now, 
go left and up the steps into the following room. Follow the path left and 
defeat the Dark Koopas along the way. At the end, go up and right onto the 
higher ledge, then use Lakilester to fly across the spikes. At the other side 
of the spike pit, go down the pipe into the next room. There, go right and 
down along the path, defeating Spinys along the way. Make your way to the far 
right, then destroy the stone block and enter the next room.

Here, go all the way left and defeat the Dark Koopas, then break the metal 
block and enter another new room. Go left and hit the block to make the 
trampoline fall to the ground. Bounce up and left to the higher ledge, then 
drop off at the other side and open the chest to get the Ultra Boots! Mario's 
Jump power increases, and he can perform the Tornado Jump by pressing A in 
the air. This will let him jump a little higher, while still shaking the 
ground on impact. Now, go right and try your new skill on the high block, 
then bounce on the trampoline to get to the high ledge.

Head right out of this room from there. Here, go right and Tornado Jump all 
the high blocks. In the middle of the formation, Tornado Jump to find a 
hidden block with a Life Shroom. Then, just continue into the next room. 
There, follow the path all the way around to the pipe again and go through to 
another room. Use Lakilester and fly across the spikes again, then go around 
the path down and to the right. Tornado Jump to hit the high block and grab 
the Shooting Star that comes out. Then, go right into the next room. In this 
room, go right and down the steps, then make Watt your partner.

Use Watt's ability to view the hidden blocks. Remember how far apart they are 
in the line, then Tornado Jump those spots to reveal them. After that, go 
left and up the steps, then jump right across the blocks. At the other side, 
go right through the blue door into the next room. Go right and down the pipe 
you find there to reach another room. When you emerge in the frigid area of 
the underground system, go left to find a Super Block. Use it to upgrade one 
of the Super ranked partners you have left. After that, go all the way right 
and up the steps, then through the pipe to arrive in Shiver City, which 
starts Chapter 7!


===============================
Chapter 7: A Star Spirit on Ice
===============================

Shiver City
-----------

When you arrive here, go right and save your game right now. After that, go 
rest at the Toad House, then check out the nice items in the Shiver Shop. 
Then, head west to the next area of town. Continue west along the path and 
enter the house at the end, which is the Mayor's house. Talk to the wife, 
then go into the back room to see the Mayor. Try talking to him and you'll 
find out that he's dead. The wife will come in and flip out, then another 
penguin will be called in to investigate. The wife will accuse Mario of 
killing the Mayor, but since he keeps pleading innocent, then green penguin 
tells him to bring the murderer to him. He's also forbidden to leave the city 
until then.

So, leave the room and the house, then head east and enter the rightmost 
house. Talk to the penguin if you want, then jump on the small dresser and 
make your way to the high ledge by the windows to the left. Press A to go 
outside, then go left and jump across to the other house's roof. Enter the 
window and open the chest in the room to get the Attack FX E Badge. Now, go 
back up and through the window to get out, drop down to the ground and head 
east to the next area of town. Here, go right and save your game, then 
continue to the east section of town.

In this area, go right and onto a frozen pond. Tornado Jump on it three times 
to break apart the ice again. Make Sushie your partner and dive to the bottom 
of it to collect the Warehouse Key. Now, get back on the ground and unlock 
the door of the building nearby, then enter the warehouse. Go up to the 
second floor of this place, then jump on the trampoline to get to the roof. 
Slide down the side of the roof to the left and you'll land on the roof of 
the neighboring house. Tornado Jump on the chimmney and go down into that 
home. The penguin inside will become surprised, so talk to him and he'll 
reveal that he's Herringway.

He'll hear what happened, then decide to go to the Mayor's house to sort 
things out. Go down the stairs and exit the house, then follow Herringway all 
the way west through Shiver City to reach the Mayor's house again. Inside the 
Mayor's house, talk to Herringway and enter the back room. Talk to the wife 
there and then go talk to the green penguin. After the long talk with the 
accusations and stuff, the Mayor will wake up and tell you all what really 
happened. After that, the green penguin and Herringway will leave, and the 
Mayor will allow you to leave the city since you want to go to Starborn 
Valley.

After that, leave the house and head east to the next area. Go right and save 
your game if you want, then continue to the following area. Here, follow the 
path some more and head past the guard to enter Shiver Snowfield.


Shiver Snowfield
----------------

When you enter this area, follow the path all the way east until you run into 
Jr. Troopa. You'll then enter battle, so read the Bosses section for help on 
defeating this guy again. After you win, just continue east into the next 
area. Here, hit the tree to the left with your Hammer several times to get a 
Letter. Also, check behind the giant tree in the upper-right corner of the 
area to get a Repel Gel. Now, head east into the next area for now. Go east 
through here, defeating the Frozen Piranhas along the way.

Grab the Letter hiding behind an ice block, then continue up the steps to the 
higher ledge. Then, just keep going right and you'll encounter a giant ghost 
creature. Choose to fight this Monstar, then defeat it and continue into the 
next area, which is Starborn Valley.


Starborn Valley
---------------

Upon entering this valley, Merle will greet you. He'll want to talk to you, 
so he asks you follow him to his house. Follow him into his house, then Merle 
will talk to you about the last Star Spirit and how you must go to the 
Crystal Palace to save it. He'll also give you a Scarf, which you must use 
along with another item to get to Shiver Mountain. After that, leave the 
house and Merle will come out to give you one more hint. When he goes back 
inside, rest at the nearby Toad House and save your game. Then, continue 
southwest to exit this place.


Shiver Snowfield
----------------

Back in the snowy area, head west and defeat the enemies along the path. Keep 
on going until you reach the next area. There, go west to see a line of 
snowmen against the wall. One of them doesn't have a scarf on. Go to the one 
with no scarf and put the Scarf that Merle gave you on it. Now, continue 
southwest to the next area. Follow the path all the way into Shiver City.


Shiver City
-----------

When you arrive here again, head west all the way to the next area. Use the 
Toad House and save your game, then continue to the westernmost area of the 
city. Continue into the Mayor's House and talk to Mayor Penguin inside. He'll 
give you the Bucket that you need. So, leave the house and head all the way 
east through the city until you reach Shiver Snowfield again.


Shiver Snowfield
----------------

Here, head east along the empty path into the following area. In the next 
area, go north to the snowman with no hat and put the Bucket on it. After 
that, the snowmen will thank you and open up a path to a new area. Now, go up 
and into the next area, which is Shiver Mountain.


Shiver Mountain
---------------

When you enter this new area, head right and save your game. Then, go up the 
steps to the right and drop into the pit up ahead. Tornado Jump the ice there 
to shatter it, then Tornado Jump on the switch to make the platform rise to 
the upper area. Now, continue right while going up and down the hills and 
defeating enemies along the way. When you reach the last part of this area, 
you'll see a floating block. Hit it, then Tornado Jump in the air above it to 
reveal a hidden block containing an Ultra Shroom. Then, go right into the 
next area.

There, go right and down the steps and head right to collect a Pebble. Go 
back left and to the previous area, then return and go down to collect 
another Pebble. Do that until you have three Pebbles total (you'll thank me 
later), then go up the steps and go right to the edge and use Kooper to hit 
the switch at the other side. When the ice bridge comes up, a duplicate of 
Kooper will also appear. They'll argue among themselves, but watch closely. 
The one who mistakenly calls Mario "Moron", that's the fake one (the one to 
the left). After they're done, hit the fake with your Hammer and it'll become 
a Duplighost.

Defeat it, then after it runs away, continue east and up the steps. Defeat 
the White Clubba that comes near, then go up the steps to the left to reach a 
Super Block. Use it to upgrade the one party member you haven't sent to Ultra 
rank yet. After that, go back down and head east to the next area. Here, 
there are three altars, each with an item inside. If you take an item from 
one of them, an ice wall will come down, blocking access to the rest of the 
area until you place another item in the altar. Grab each of the items 
(Shooting Star, Snowman Doll, and Thunder Rage), replacing them with the 
Pebbles you took a few minutes ago. Then, go east into the following area.

In this area, go right and up the steps to find an ice block with a star 
carved into it. For now, drop down to the lower area and bomb the wall to the 
right with Bombette. Enter that room and walk straight through the next wall. 
You'll end up in a hidden room with a star frozen in ice. A spirit known as 
Madam Merlar will appear and talk to you for a while. After her story, she'll 
remove the Star Stone from the ice. After she leaves, grab the stone and go 
left to exit the cave.

Back outside, go left and up a small ramp, then go up the steps to the ice 
block again. Place the Star Stone in that space and giant stairs made of ice 
will come out of the ground and rise all the way to the top of the mountain. 
Start by going up the first set of steps, then go all the way right. Defeat 
the White Clubba and hit the floating block to get the Mega Jump Badge. Go 
back to the left and up the next set of steps. Pass the Save Block for right 
now and go up the last set of stairs to the very top. Go right and hit the 
Heart Block, then go back down and save your game. Now, go back up and head 
right to enter the Crystal Palace.


Crystal Palace
--------------

When you enter this icy palace, start by heading right and into the actual 
palace itself. Once inside, go right and enter the first room along the south 
wall. There, save your game and continue into the next room (disregard that 
red X for right now). I recommend you equip a badge that allows you to hit 
enemies on the ceiling (Mega Quake), or use a partner that can fly up there 
to attack. Go right and defeat the Swoopulas, then continue into the 
following room. Open the chest to get the Blue Key, then leave the room and 
head west through the previous room to reach the main hallway again. Go right 
and Tornado Jump on the switch to make the upper floor lower to your level. 
Unlock the door with the Blue Key and enter that room.

There, go right and bomb the cracked wall with Bombette, then enter the 
following room. Go right and hit the block to get 10 Coins, then walk in the 
middle of the pillars to reach the opposite side of the mirrored room. Hit 
the other block to get more Coins, then go left and bomb the wall on the flip 
side and enter the previous room. There, you'll run into a mirror of you and 
your partner. They'll end up being two Duplighosts that want to fight, so 
defeat them. After they run away, go left and through the opposite blue door 
to reach the next room. Continue left and enter the room along the north 
wall. In that room, hit the block to get a Super Shroom, then head right and 
defeat the Swoopula.

Keep going right into the next room, then grab the Shooting Star there. Go 
back to the previous room and go down the hallway into the room after that. 
Tornado Jump on the boarded up section of floor to break through, then drop 
to the room below. Go right into the next room and defeat the Swoopulas 
there. Continue into the next room and open the chet to get the P-Down, D-Up 
Badge. Now, go back left through the room to the next one with the 
trampoline. Bounce on it to get to the upper room, then go through the door 
to the left to reach the main hall. There, go east through the next couple 
rooms to the one with the pillars. At that point, go back to the other side 
of the mirror and go back two rooms to the main hall again.

Now, go left and into the south room again. Go right and fall through the new 
hole in the floor, then when you land, go right into the following room. Go 
right and bomb the wall with Bombette, then several clones will appear. 
They'll all claim to be the real Bombette, and you must hit the clones with 
your Hammer. Hit all the ones except the second to last one (the one that 
says they won't forgive you if you mess up), and the clones will become 
Duplighosts and run away. Now, go right into the next room and open the chest 
to get the Red Key.

Leave the room and continue left to the following room, then bounce on the 
trampoline to get to the upper area. From there, go left and save your game, 
then go through the door to the main hall. Go right and Tornado Jump the 
switch to make the red door rise up. Unlock it and enter the next room. 
There, go right and into the following room. Go right and the White Clubba 
will talk to you, then engage in battle. Beat it and the giant statue in the 
flip side will disappear. Continue right and defeat the second White Clubba 
to make the other one disappear as well. Now, go right and beat the very last 
guard in your way.

After the last statue vanishes, go back left to the previous room. Go left 
and up through the opening to get to the flip side, then go right to the 
other side of the room you were just in. Go right across the path and enter 
the door at the other side to reach the next room. There, go right to the 
wall and bomb it with Bombette to make a hole in the wall. Continue into that 
room and defeat the Duplighost, then open the chest to get the Triple Dip 
Badge. Now, go back to the previous room. Have Bombette stand by the switch, 
then quickly jump onto the circular platform before she explodes. The 
platform will rotate, bringing you to the other side of the room. Now, go 
right through the door into the next room.

In this side of the room, defeat the White Clubba, then continue into the 
following room. Here, go right and you'll see a small hole in the wall to the 
right. You'll see a fake Mario in the flip side kicking a shell into the hole 
over there, so make Kooper your partner and use his Shell Toss to send him in 
the hole on your half. When he returns to you, there will be four other 
characters with him, all claiming to be Kooper. When you get to Hammer them, 
hit them all except Kooper. After that's done, go right through the hole in 
the wall to reach the next room. There, go right and enter the east room.

Here, you'll see the reflection of you and your partner in the mirror. There 
is a switch on the ledge on the other side of the gap in the flip side. Stand 
at the edge and use Kooper's Shell Toss towards the right. The reflection 
will hit the switch, causing a bridge to appear. Now, go across the bridge 
and enter the following room. Here, go through the opening in the mirror to 
reach the flip side, then go back left to the flip side of the previous room. 
Go left and across the bridge, then go through the door to the next room. 
Head through the north door into the next room. Here, use Watt to reveal a 
hidden block, then Tornado Jump it to get a Jammin' Jelly. Also, shake the 
ground under it to get a Star Piece.

Then, go right to find a rhino statue. Get behind it and push it to the left, 
revealing a hole you'll fall into. There, go right into the next room. Head 
to the right and defeat the White Clubba along the way, then continue to the 
following room. Open the chest to get the P-Up, D-Down Badge. Now, leave this 
room and continue left to the room with the trampoline. Bounce up to the 
upper floor, then go left and out of this room. There, go right through the 
next two rooms, and in the last room, go through the opening to get to the 
other side again. Now, go back left a couple rooms and go through the south 
door to reach the next room. Tornado Jump to hit the block to the left and 
grab the Maple Syrup, then go right and fall down the hole behind the giant 
statue. When you land, go right into the next room.

In this room, go right and defeat the Duplighost walking around. Then, 
continue right to the next room. Here, open the chest to get the Palace Key. 
Now, leave the room and continue all the way west to the following room with 
the trampoline. Bounce up to the upper floor and go left out of this room. 
Head right into the next room, then go right across the bridge in that room. 
Go through the door into the following room, then in that room, go right and 
unlock the doors with the Palace Key (unlock one side and the other opens as 
well).

This room is a pretty tricky maze, since there are three statues in the north 
end and three rhino-type creatures to correspond with them. Talk to any of 
those creatures on the south side, and the corresponding statue will face in 
the direction the rhino turns to talk to you. The idea is to push the three 
statues onto the square panels near them. You can only push a statue in the 
direction it's facing. Let's start with the leftmost rhino. Talk to it so it 
faces south, then go up and push the statue north. Talk to the rhino again to 
make it turn to the west, then push the statue west onto the first panel.

For the second rhino, talk to it so it faces east, then push the 
corresponding statue to the east one space. Talk to it again so it faces 
north, then push the statue south onto the second square panel. Now, for the 
last one, talk to it so it faces north, then push the statue south one space. 
Talk to the rhino and make it face east, and push the statue east two spaces. 
Now, talk to it one more time to make it face south, then push the statue 
north onto the last square. After you do all that, a staircase and doorway 
will appear on the east side of the room. Go up the steps and through the 
door into the next room.

Here, save your game and use the Heart Block (now is also the time to get 
some strong Badges to enhance your Hammer/Jump attacks). After that, bring 
out a good partner like Lakilester, then enter the next room. Go right and up 
the hill to meet the Crystal King. After a few words, you'll enter battle 
against him, so read the Bosses section if you want to win! After you win, 
grab the Star Spirit card that appears to clear Chapter 7! Now is also a 
great time to save your game.


Princess Peach's Castle
-----------------------

This time when the scene opens at the castle, Peach and Twink will be out on 
the balcony talking. After they go back inside, Bowser will run in. The 
Princess will tell him Mario is coming, and he'll just start laughing. Kammy 
Koopa will then come in and tell Bowser that Mario has saved all the Star 
Spirits and is possibly coming up to the castle. After that, Bowser will plan 
an ambush in his castle, and tells the guards to tie up Peach. Twink will 
argue, but Bowser will knock him out the window, thus ending the scene.

Back outside the Crystal Palace, Kalmar the Star Spirit will thank you for 
your help. He'll give your the Star Power called Up & Away, and boost your 
meter to Level 7. After that, Kalmar will tell you to head to Shooting Star 
Summit, then he'll leave. So, go left and out of here to reach Shiver 
Mountain again.


Shiver Mountain
---------------

Here, head left and down the first set of steps. For a shortcut at the bottom 
of that first set, go left and drop down the cliff by the Save Block (there's 
a Star Piece on a ledge on the way down). When you land, continue left to the 
next area. Go left past the three altars from earlier and continue into the 
following area. Follow the path here to the west and defeat the White Clubba. 
Then, go down the steps and continue west to the next area. Head left and 
down the steps and defaet the Frozen Piranhas there. Continue along the path 
while going down and up the hills and defeating another enemy or so. Pass the 
Save Block and go through the hole at the end to reach the Shiver Snowfield 
again.


Shiver Snowfield
----------------

When you enter this area again, go southwest along the path into the next 
area. In the next area, follow the path all the way west while defeating the 
Gulpits along the way, until you enter Shiver City.


Shiver City
-----------

Back in this cold city, head left all the way to the next area of town. Go 
rest at the Toad House, and when you wake up, there will be four Mushrooms, 
an Ultra Shroom, and an Iced Potato in the room. Take what you want, then 
leave the house and save your game via the Save Block. Then, go south and 
down the pipe to enter the Toad Town Tunnels again.


Toad Town Tunnels
-----------------

When you arrive here, go left and down the steps, then down the pipe to the 
next room. Go left through the blue door into the following room. There, go 
south and drop down to the lower area, then go down that pipe to reach the 
next room. Continue right into the next room, then buy from Rip Cheato if you 
like. Otherwise, continue through the next pipe to end up in Toad Town.


Toad Town
---------

When you pop out here inside a house, go through the door to get outside. 
Now, head right and up the path to the next area. There, continue north and 
through the blue gate to reach the following area. Go up and right past the 
castle to the next area, then follow the path all the way up and to the east 
to reach the Shooting Star Valley.


Shooting Star Valley
--------------------

When you enter this area, head right and up the path all the way to the top 
of the area. There, you'll hear a voice telling you it's opening the way to 
Star Way. The path will then appear, so walk into the light to be pulled up 
to the Star Way.


Star Way
--------

When you land up here in the stars, head up the path to the right. Defeat the 
Embers along the way, using Sushie's water attacks to quickly dispose of 
them. Keep going around the spiral path upward until you reach Star Haven at 
the top.


Star Haven
----------

When you arrive in the Star Haven, head right and up the steps. Follow the 
path up another set of steps, then when the path splits, go north to visit 
the shop. Buy what you need, then take the east path and rest at the Toad 
House. Then, save your game and follow the path northeast to the next area. 
Here, you'll see the sacred Star Sanctuary. Head right and up the steps, then 
go inside. Go right and up to the middle platform, and the Star Spirits will 
be floating around the room. They'll give you the Star Beam power, which can 
be used to void the Star Rod's power when Bowser uses it. Also, Eldstar will 
give you the Star Ship to reach the castle in.

When you're ready, jump into the ship and you'll take off towards Bowser's 
Castle. When you arrive, Chapter 8 will commence.


===================================
Chapter 8: A Star-Powered Showdown!
===================================

Bowser's Castle
---------------

When you arrive at the beginning of this floating castle in the sky, head 
right and save your game. Then, go south and through the door to reach the 
actual castle courtyard. Head north and across the bridge over the lava. 
Follow the path to the right side and enter the castle itself. Head right and 
defeat the Koopatrol, then grab the Castle Key it drops. Now, go back left 
and head outside again. Now, go left and open the main door to enter the 
castle. Go right and beat two more Koopatrols, then continue to the next 
room.

Here, defeat another Koopatrol and the Hammer Bro along the way. After that, 
just keep going right and through the door at the end to reach the next room. 
When you enter this room, the wall panel across the room will talk to you. 
It'll ask if you want to go behind it, so say yes and it'll ask for you to 
walk up to it. Do so, and it'll trick you by opening a trap door under you, 
causing you to fall into a prison cell below. After the wall is done taunting 
you, talk to the Toads nearby. Destroy the boxes to the left to get a Tasty 
Tonic and a Life Shroom. Use the Heart Block, then have Bombette destroy the 
east wall, opening a path of escape.

Now, go right through the hole to the next room. Go right and save your game 
there, then continue east to the following room. In this room, make 
Lakilester your partner and ride in his cloud, then go down the steps into 
the lava. Go south and float above the lava leading to the previous room. Go 
left and up the steps onto a ledge you previously couldn't reach. Hit the 
block there to get a Life Shroom, then continue in the cloud west to get 
outside again.

Follow the path west and north to the ledges at the end, then hit the block 
to get the Deep Focus Badge. Now, backtrack by floating across the lava 
through the next couple rooms until you reach the second room inside. There, 
go north and up the steps onto the regular ledge again, then head right 
across the room by jumping from platform to platform. Wait for the moving 
platforms to come near before jumping to them, though. When you make it to 
the other side of the room, head east into the following room.

In this room, use Lakilester and float across the lava onto a ledge with a 
blue switch. Hit the switch to make a platform move back and forth across 
that pit. Go back left and up the steps on the first platform, then ride 
across to the other side. Go right and use Lakilester to float down the 
stairs into the lava, then head southeast to another switch. Hit it to make 
another moving platform go back and forth. Head back left and up the stairs 
to the right platform, then go right and ride the moving platform across to 
the other side. Then, have Parakarry fly you across each of the following 
pits until you reach the end. At that point, just go into the next room.

Here, use Lakilester and fly down and right onto another platform. Go up onto 
the slightly elevated ledge, then use Parakarry to fly to the left and 
retrieve the item on the ledge, which is a Mystery? Get back on Lakilester 
and continue flying east through the room to the next platform. Go up and 
onto the moving platform, then have Bow make you transparent so you don't get 
hurt when passing under the lava falling from the ceiling. At the other side, 
have Parakarry fly you across another gap. Use Lakilester once more and fly 
onto the lava, then north into the next room. Go right around the large 
mountain of lava, then head up the steps to encounter a Magikoopa and some 
Koopatrols guarding a switch.

Defeat them and hit the switch to make the lava in the previous areas cool 
off and harden, which allows you to walk on it now! Now, go left and drop 
down to the ground, then leave this room. Head left across this room, making 
sure to collect the Thunder Rage on the ledge you couldn't reach before. 
Continue into the following room, then in that room, keep going left until 
you see a doorway in the north wall. Enter that room and open the chest to 
get a Castle Key. Then, leave this room and head all the way east to the 
following room. Keep going east to the locked door at the very end, then 
unlock it and enter the next room.

In this new area, make Watt your partner and use its power to light up the 
way. Go east and north along the path and defeat the Bony Beetle along the 
way. Continue west and up the hill when the path splits. Stand at the edge at 
the top, then switch to Parakarry and fly across the gap. Use Watt again and 
continue along the path. When you see it split again, go north and west on a 
steep hill, then hit the block at the top to get a POW Block. Then, go back 
down and continue west and up another hill. Use Parakarry to fly across, then 
have Watt illuminate the path. Keep going left and up into the next area.

There, use Watt again to light up the path, then go left and defeat the 
Koopatrols. Take the north path and head up a hill, then grab the Shooting 
Stay by hitting the block there. Get back down and head south, then directly 
west and up another hill. Have Parakarry fly you across it, then continue 
with Watt up the hill, defeating the Bony Beetle you find there. At the next 
path split, take the north path and start going up that hill. When you reach 
the gap, drop down to the lower path. Continue west and defeat the Magikoopa, 
then head straight to the next area. In this room, you'll see a stone block 
that you can push to the left. Push it and you'll open up a doorway leading 
into the next room.

Go down the path and into that room, where you'll find that wall panel guard 
again. It'll be freaked out since you escaped the jail, and it'll let you 
pass. Go right and press A to go through the door and into the next room. 
Here, head right and save your game via the Save Block. Then, go up the north 
stairs and head left into a side room. Here, you can buy some items if you 
need to. Otherwise, leave the room and get back down to the Save Block. From 
there, go east (on the bottom floor) into the next room. Head down the stairs 
and into the following room. There, defeat the Koopatrol and get the Prison 
Key, then unlock the nearby jail cell. Go inside and talk to the prisoners, 
especially the Toad to rest in his makeshift Toad House.

After that, leave the cell and head back up to the previous room. Go up the 
stairs and into the following room, then go left and save your game again. 
Now, go up the north stairs to the second floor. This time, take the path to 
the east and into that room. Go right through the hallway, defeating the 
enemies you come across. Then, continue right into the next room. Here, just 
head all the way right into the following room. In that room, go right until 
you reach the trampoline. Bounce on it to reach the wooden ledge, then go 
left and jump onto the chain hanging at the end, which causes the room to 
become flooded with water.

Go back right onto the wooden dock and use Sushie to swim in the water. Swim 
back west to the previous room, then in that room, swim west and up to the 
dock. Hit the switch to the right to make a trampoline to come out of the 
wall. Bounce up and right onto the higher ledge, then have Bombette destroy 
the cracked wall. Go right into that room, then Tornado Jump to break the 
block, causing the switch to fall. Hit the switch to open up a couple of 
hidden passages in the back walls. Go up and right through the first passage, 
then use Watt to reveal a hidden block on the middle ledge. Hit that block to 
get Maple Syrup, then continue right to the far right side of the room, then 
jump on the chain to raise the water level again. After that, go back left 
and to the previous room.

Go left and onto the dock, then use Sushie to swim to another dock nearby. 
Grab the Castle Key you find, then swim back to the east dock and go into 
that room. Head all the way right and pull the chain to lower the water one 
level again. Now, go back to the previous room again and head left. Drop down 
to the lower area, then go left to the dock and use Sushie to swim east to 
the next room. Go right to the dock and jump onto that ledge, then go left 
and pull the chain to drain all the remaining water. Now, go right and drop 
down to the ground and unlock the door to the right, then enter the next 
room. Go right and up the steps, then defeat the Bombshell Bills as you make 
your way to the right.

Defeat the B. Bill Blasters, then jump up to the higher ledge and go up the 
steps to the higher level. Go left while trying to avoid the Bombshell Bills 
again. Defeat the B. Bill Blasters, then go up to the higher ledge and 
continue east. Get through one last barrage of bullets and continue all the 
way to the next room. Upon entering this room, you'll encounter a Dry Bones 
trying to attack you. Go right and defeat them, while making sure to use Watt 
to reveal a hidden block to get a Maple Syrup. Hit the regular block to the 
right to get a Super Shroom. Now, push the rightmost block against the wall 
to the right to reveal a hidden path, then go up into the next room. Go right 
and defeat the Bony Beetle, then head right and save your game.

Now, go left and push the leftmost block aside, then go through the hidden 
passage to the next room. There, use the Heart Block if you need it, then 
head right to reach the following room. Here, defeat the Hammer Bro to the 
right. Now, you'll notice a passage to the right of the middle block is open, 
but that isn't the right path to go (leads to nothing). Push the block to the 
right to reveal another passage, then go up into that room. Head west through 
the hallway to the next room, then in that room, grab the Castle Key.

Next, go back right down the hall to the previous room, then continue west to 
the next room. Go left and use the Heart Block again and head south to the 
next room. Back in that room, use the Save Block to the east, then unlock the 
door and enter the new room. Here, go right and talk to the wall panel. It 
will only let you pass if you answer its questions correctly. Check out the 
Secrets section of this guide to find a list of the questions and answers. 
After you answer five of the questions correctly, you'll be allowed to pass.

At that point, go right and through the door into the next room. Here, hit 
the two blocks to get a Super Shroom and Maple Syrup, then head east and 
defeat the Koopatrol along the way. Hit another block to the right to get 
another Super Shroom, then continue east and defeat one more Koopatrol. Go up 
the steps and when you get there, go south and drop to a hidden platform with 
Jammin' Jelly on it. Take the item, then jump down and go back up the steps. 
Go up the second set of steps and continue along the path. Defeat the 
Magikoopa flying around, then keep going west to the end and enter the next 
room.

Back inside, go left and save your game. Then, continue west to the next 
room. Go left and down the steps into the following room, which is a jail. 
Defeat the Koopatrol to get his key, then unlock the cell and talk to the 
Toad inside, whose running a Toad House. Rest here, then leave the room and 
head east to the large room with the Save Block again. Now, save again and 
head up the north stairs to the upper level.

There, take the west path into the next room. In this room, go left and 
defeat the Dry Bones, then jump onto the low ledge to the right. Head left to 
the end, then walk down onto a lower ledge. Face to the left and bring out 
Bombette, then press C-Down to have her walk down to the lower area. Now, 
quickly jump left and up onto another ledge because after Bombette explodes, 
it'll trigger a switch that makes the platform rise.

Then, jump to the left and enter the next room. Here, take the Ultra Shroom 
and leave the room. Head right and drop to the lower section, then continue 
east out of this room as well. Now, take the path northeast to the middle 
section, then continue southeast to the following room. There, go right and 
defeat the Hammer Bro and jump up the steps to the higher ledge. Defeat the 
second Hammer Bro, then continue into the next room.

Here, go right and defeat a Magikoopa, then continue right to find a switch. 
You'll notice that the ground to the left of the switch looks a little out of 
place, so stand there. Use Kooper to trigger the switch, which raises the 
platform you're on to the high ledge. Quickly go up and jump to the right 
ledge, then to the last ledge and continue into the next room.

Grab the Castle Key and leave the room, then head all the way west through to 
the following room. There, go left and down the steps, then go right and 
unlock the door and enter that room. This next room can be pretty tricky, as 
you must go up and down in the right pattern to make it through the following 
room. Take note of the pattern the lights in the background are arranged (up, 
down, down, up, down, up), then go up the east steps and enter the next room 
(this is the first part of the pattern).

This is a loop room, which will keep repeating itself if you go through the 
right path (in the first room, go down the steps and take the upper path to 
the next room; for the second room, stay on the bottom and continue into the 
next room, and so on). If you mess up, you'll have to start over. Get through 
here until you make it to the end, and you will be in a room with a bridge 
leading to the east.

Here, go right across the bridge and defeat the enemies along the way. At the 
end, continue right into the next room. Use the Heart Block, then head east 
through the hallway. You'll find a look-alike of Princess Peach in front of 
the door at the end. Talk to her and she'll say she "ran" from Bowser. 
Apparently it's a fake, so walk to the left with her following until she 
doesn't follow anymore, At that point, go back right to reveal the imposter. 
Go to the right and hit the fake three times to reveal the Duplighost. Fight 
it, then go right into that new room.

When you enter the room, the giant wall will talk to you. It'll summon the 
Koopa Bros., but you won't have to fight them. Jr. Troopa will run in and 
chase them away, and you'll have to fight him instead. Read the Bosses 
section for help on winning this fight. After you win, Jr. Troopa will run 
away and the giant wall will let you pass. So, go back to the previous room 
to use the Heart Block, then return to that room and go right through the 
giant door to the next room. Go up the steps and through the door at the top 
to get outside again.

Go right and use Watt to reveal a hidden block, then grab the Ultra Shroom it 
contains. Then, go and save your game via the Save Block nearby. From there, 
go north and enter Princess Peach's Castle.


Princess Peach's Castle
-----------------------

When you enter this last castle, start by heading to the right and up the 
steps to the side. Go up and enter the room to the right. There, check out 
the dresser and Toad will come out. Talk to him and you'll be able to rest in 
this makeshift Toad House. When you're ready, leave the room and go up the 
main stairs and through the large door to reach the second floor. Here, go 
left and enter the first door you pass and enter the room (it should be the 
library you're going to). Here, go left around the bookcases until you reach 
the middle of the room by the pile of books.

Jump onto the piles of books in the corner to reach the top, then jump onto 
the balcony and walk to the left to find a Life Shroom at the end. Now, go 
back right and down and continue out of this room. Next, go up the steps on 
either side of the room and through the big door at the top to reach the next 
room. Head right and up the steps, then continue into the following room. 
There, you'll hear Peach calling to Mario for help. Look to the right and 
you'll see the Princess tied up, then Bowser will appear. He'll taunt you, 
then challenge you to battle. Now you'll have to fight, so read the Bosses 
section for help on winning this round.

After you win, Bowser will grab the Princess and fly out the window, then 
challenge you to follow him to the roof. For now, go back down to the first 
floor and visit the Toad in that room to rest up. After you do that, return 
back to the room where you just fought Bowser. Now, head east into the next 
room. In that room, go right and up the sets of steps to the top, then go 
left into the next room. Go left across the bridge and enter the room at the 
other side. Here, save your game and make adjustments to your badges one last 
time (I prefer having Watt as my partner for this fight).

When you're ready, go up the spiral stairs all the way to the top, then go 
through the door to get out onto the roof. There, go right across the bridge 
into Bowser's arena. Bowser will hit a switch to make the bridge disappear, 
making you stuck there with him. Kammy Koopa will increase Bowser's power and 
make him grow, then you'll enter battle for the last time. Read the Bosses 
section because you'll most definitely need help here! After you win, 
congratulations on beating Paper Mario (no I'm not telling you the ending, as 
I don't want to spoil it for you)!

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
-=  8. Enemies  -=
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Amazy Dayzee
    HP: 20
    Attack Power: 20
    Defense Power: 1
    Note: This enemy is the rarest of all in this game! You only find it in
          one area, and that's in the southeast section of Flower Fields
          after you get across all the blocks. If you see a sparkling yellow
          Crazee Dayzee, that's the one you must go after. If you don't beat
          it in time, it'll run away from battle, so be sure to kill it
          quickly with strong attacks. Also, when you do kill it, you get
          A LOT of Star Points, so it's worth it definitely!

B. Bill Blaster
    HP: 10
    Attack Power: N/A
    Defense Power: 4
    Note: This heavily armored cannon shoots an endless array of Bombshell
          Bills at you outside of battle. In battle, they'll attack you in
          The same fashion. Use really strong attacks to get through their
          armor and defeat them.

Bandit
    HP: 5
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: These guys will try to steal your Coins when attacking you. You can
          take back the Coins by attacking them in battle. However, if you
          fail to attack them in one round after they steal from you, they'll
          run away and you lose that money.

Bill Blaster
    HP: 4
    Attack Power: 0
    Defense Power: 1
    Note: Although this cannon enemy won't directly hurt you, it'll shoot out
          a Bullet Bill to attack you instead. Also, Jump attacks won't hurt
          because of its strong shell.

Blooper Baby
    HP: 6
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 0

Bob-omb
    HP: 3
    Attack Power: 1
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: Beware when attacking this enemy because if you don't kill it in a
          single hit, it'll charge at you and explode, causing some damage to
          you.

Bombshell Bill
    HP: 3
    Attack Power: 6
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: If you don't destroy them fast, they'll crash into you, causing
          them to self-destruct. You'll also take a decent amount of damage,
          so be careful!

Bony Beetle
    HP: 8
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 4
    Note: This creature has a very high defense, so flip it over with a Jump
          attack to lower it to 0. Watch out when its spikes are out,
          however.

Bullet Bill
    HP: 2
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: This enemy fights in a kamikaze-type style, where if you don't
          defeat it in your turn, it'll crash into you, killing itself and
          causing damage to you.

Buzzy Beetle
    HP: 3
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 2
    Note: Use a Jump attack to flip it over, then attack as normal to cause
          damage.

Bzzap!
    HP: 3
    Attack Power: 6
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: Sometimes when it attacks, you'll become poisoned. It'll also send
          a swarm of small bees to attack you, and possibly shrink you as
          well.

Chomp
    HP: 4
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 3

Cleft
    HP: 2
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 2
    Note: Don't use any Jump attacks on this creature because if you do,
          it'll cause damage to you only.

Clubba
    HP: 8
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: These guards are found in Tubba Blubba's Castle sleeping. If you
          run past, they will wake up and attack, so move slowly to avoid
          battle.

Crazee Dayzee
    HP: 8
    Attack Power: 4
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: When they use their song to attack, Mario may fall asleep. Try to
          beat this guy before it gets the chance to do so.

Dark Koopa
    HP: 8
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 2
    Note: You can flip this enemy on its back by Jumping on it, which will
          lower its defense drastiaclly. Also, be careful because it'll try
          to make Mario dizzy with its attacks.

Dry Bones
    HP: 8
    Attack Power: 4
    Defense Power: 2
    Note: This skeletal version of the Koopa Troopa can be pretty annoying.
          Even after you defeat it, it'll come back and continue attacking.
          Fire attacks work really well, and can burn it to death, which
          prevents it from becoming alive again.

Duplighost
    HP: 15
    Attack Power: 4
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: This enemy can transform into anyone it wants, gaining that
          person's powers, so be careful when dealing with this guy.

Ember
    HP: 10
    Attack Power: 4
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: Since this is a fire-based enemy, you cannot hit it with a Jump
          attack because you'll get hurt. Use water attacks to defeat it
          quickly. Also, when you attack them, they'll divide into two, so
          try using attacks that'll kill it in one hit.

Forest Fuzzy
    HP: 6
    Attack Power: 1
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: When they attack you, they'll gain however much HP they take from
          you. Also, if you don't destroy it quickly enough, it'll split into
          two, giving you that much more to fight.

Frozen Piranha
    HP: 10
    Attack Power: 4
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: Since it's an icy plant, it's recommended you use fire-based
          attacks to cause lots of damage to it.

Fuzzipede
    HP: 20
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: When attacked, this creature hangs from the ceiling, making it hard
          to attack it. Use airborne projectiles to attack this creature and
          knock it down.

GRN Magikoopa
    HP: 11
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power 0
    Note: This version of the Magikoopa has the ability to increase the
          defenses of the enemies in the battle. Defeat this guy quickly to
          make things much easier on your behalf.

Groove Guy
    HP: 7
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 0

GRY Magikoopa
    HP: 11
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: This one's skill is to make other enemies transparent, making it
          impossible for you to attack them for a few rounds. Defeat this guy
          before that becomes too much of a problem.

Gulpit
    HP: 12
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: This enemy eats up rocks from a pile next to it, and spits them at
          you to attack. Attack the rock pile to get rid of them to avoid
          getting hit by them.

Hammer Bros.
    HP: 12
    Attack Power: 5
    Defense Power: 1
    Note: Beware of their hammer-throwing attack since it can shrink Mario on
          impact.

Hurt Plant
    HP: 8
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: Sometimes when this enemy attacks, it'll poison you, so beware.

Hyper Cleft
    HP: 4
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 3
    Note: Here's the stronger version of the Cleft. It has much stronger
          defense this time, but you can flip it over using Bombette's
          explosion attacks, which will lower its defense drastiaclly. Also,
          watch out when it glows because it'll take 8 HP when it attacks
          while glowing!

Hyper Goomba
    HP: 7
    Attack Power: 1
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: Basically a stronger version of the Goomba. Watch out when it
          starts glowing, because it's charging up for a really powerful
          attack against you!

Hyper Paragoomba
    HP: 7
    Attack Power: 1
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: This creature is basically a Paragoomba with more HP. As always,
          use an air attack to make it become a regular Hyper Goomba. Also,
          watch out for when it charges up because it'll REALLY hurt when it
          attacks!

Jungle Fuzzy
    HP: 7
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: Instead of just taking 1 HP and falling off of you, they stay
          attached to you. You must press A repeatedly to make it fall off.

Koopa Troopa
    HP: 4
    Attack Power: 1
    Defense Power: 1
    Note: Flip them on their backsides by using a Jump attack, causing their
          defense to lower drastically.

Koopatrol
    HP: 8
    Attack Power: 4
    Defense Power: 3
    Note: This guard has a spiked helmet, so jumping to attack would be
          useless without the Spike Shield Badge on. It also calls in more
          guards during the battle. If you lower its HP enough, it'll use a
          really strong attack as a last-ditch effort, so be careful!

Lakitu
    HP: 12
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: This creature floats in the air on top of a cloud, so Jump attacks
          are your best bet against it.

Lava Bubble
    HP: 9
    Attack Power: 4
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: This guy has a habit of attacking your partner, causing them to be
          unable to attack for a few rounds. Since it's a fireball, it's
          recommended you use water-based attacks to hurt it.

M. Bush
    HP: 8
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: Outside battle, this creature pretends to be a regular bush until
          you try checking it out. Also, its attacks poison you, so be
          careful.

Magikoopa
    HP: 11
    Attack Power: 6
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: This guy is basically the master of all the different colored
          Magikoopas you've seen so far. It has all the other ones' powers,
          plus it has the ability to clone itself. When it clones itself, use
          a multi-target attack to hit the real one.

Medi Guy
    HP: 7
    Attack Power: 1
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: When you attack other enemies in battle, this guy will heal it.
          It's best to take out this enemy first if you're fighting a group
          for that reason alone.

Monstar
    HP: 20
    Attack Power: N/A
    Defense Power: 0

Monty Mole (Mt. Rugged)
    HP: 3
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 0

Monty Mole (Flower Fields)
    HP: 12
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 0

Paragloomba
    HP: 7
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: Attack this enemy with a Jump attack and it'll lose its wings,
          turning it back into a normal Gloomba.

Paragoomba
    HP: 2
    Attack Power: 1
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: Attack this guy with a Jump attack and it'll lose its wings,
          turning it into a regular Goomba.

Paratroopa
    HP: 4
    Attack Power: 1
    Defense Power: 1
    Note: When attacked with a Jump attack, it'll become just a regular Koopa
          Troopa. At that point, defeat it like you would a Koopa Troopa.

Piranha Plant
    HP: 5
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: Because of its teeth, you can't use Jump attacks on this creature.
          Doing so will cause you damage instead.

Pokey
    HP: 4
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: Don't use any Jump attacks on this cactus, otherwise you'll get
          hurt by doing so.

Pokey Mummy
    HP: 4
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: This one is to be dealt with just like the regular Pokey, but
          beware. You may be poisoned when it attacks you!

Putrid Piranha
    HP: 12
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: When it attacks, it may poison Mario, so be prepared for such an
          attack.

Pyro Guy
    HP: 7
    Attack Power: 4
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: This guy is totally engulfed in flames, making physical contact
          with it a hazard on your behalf. Attack it with water-based attacks
          or projectiles to cause damage from a distance.

R Magikoopa
    HP: 11
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: This Magikoopa's ability allows it to raise the attack power of
          other enemies in the battle, so beware.

Ruff Puff
    HP: 10
    Attack Power: 4
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: Because it floats in the air, Hammer attacks won't be able to hit
          it. Use an air attack to hurt this creature.

Shy Guy
    HP: 7
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 0

Shy Squad
    HP: 15
    Attack Power: 1
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: This is a group of 15 Shy Guys attacking you here. Each one can
          only take 1 HP of damage before it's defeated, and when they
          attack, each one will take 1 HP away from you. So beware when you
          fight this phase of General Guy's army.

Shy Stack
    HP: 10
    Attack Power: 1
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: This is a stack of 4 Shy Guys on top of each other. If you have the
          Spin Hammer Badge equipped, you can use that attack to knock them
          apart one by one.

Sky Guy
    HP: 7
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: This enemy floats in the air with a balloon. Attack the balloon to
          make it fall, turning it into a regular Shy Guy.

Spear Guy
    HP: 7
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: If they have their spears pointed towards you and Mario uses his
          Hammer, he'll get hurt. Also, when their spears are pointed upward,
          Jump attacks will hurt Mario instead. It'll also throw its spear at
          you; when it does that, it'll become just a regular Shy Guy.

Spike Top
    HP: 4
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 4
    Note: This creature has VERY high defense, plus it has a spike on its
          back, so most attacks won't do anything to it. Use a strong attack
          to actually cause damage.

Spiked Gloomba
    HP: 7
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: Don't use any Jump attacks on this creature because if you do,
          it'll cause damage to you only.

Spiked Goomba
    HP: 2
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: Don't use any Jump attacks on this creature because if you do,
          it'll cause damage to you only.

Spiny
    HP: 5
    Attack Power: 4
    Defense Power: 3
    Note: This creature has a spiked shell, and along with high defense, it
          can be pretty tough to beat. Wear the Spike Shield Badge and Jump
          on it to flip it over, lowering its defense to 0.

Spy Guy
    HP: 7
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: This guy can be quite dangerous for you when you fight it. Each
          time you attack it, it'll change its weapon. If it hits Mario with
          its hammer, Mario will be unable to use one of his commands for a
          few rounds of battle.

Stilt Guy
    HP: 7
    Attack Power: 4
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: These are just regular Shy Guys on stilts. Use a Jump attack or an
          earth-shaking attack to make them fall down and become regular Shy
          Guys again.

Stone Chomp
    HP: 4
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 1
    Note: This enemy is totally made of stone, so most attacks won't hurt it.
          Use the Super Hammer to cause some serious damage to it, though.

Swooper
    HP: 4
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: This bat hangs from the ceiling, so not many attacks can hit it.
          However, Parakarry's attacks, as well as earth-shaking attacks, can
          hurt it.

Swoopula
    HP: 8
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: Not only does this enemy hang from the ceiling, but when it
          attacks, it sticks to you. It sucks out 2 HP every couple seconds
          until you shake it off by pressing A repeatedly.

W Magikoopa
    HP: 11
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: When you encounter it in battle, it has the ability to recover the
          HP of itself and other enemies on the screen. That's why it's best
          to take out this guy first in a group.

White Clubba
    HP: 12
    Attack Power: 5
    Defense Power: 0

Y Magikoopa
    HP: 11
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 0
    Note: This magician gives an electrical charge to another enemy in the
          battle. Touching that enemy while it's charged up will cause you to
          take damage instead. As with the other Magikoopas, defeat this one
          quickly.

Jr. Troopa (First Fight)
    Found: Jr. Troopa's Playground
    HP: 5
    Star Points: 20
    Attack Power: 1
    Defense Power: 0
    Strategy: This guy isn't really too tough for you to defeat. Just Jump or
              use the Hammer to attack. Don't worry about its attacks towards
              you since they aren't too strong. Just keep on fighting until
              you defeat it.

Red Goomba/Blue Goomba
    Found: Goomba Road
    HP: 7 (Red), 6 (Blue)
    Star Points: 20
    Attack Power: 1 (Both)
    Defense Power: 0 (Both)
    Strategy: Despite the fact that these two have more HP than previous
              Enemies you've fought, they're still pretty easy. Just use lots
              of jump and hammer attacks, concentrating on beating one at a
              time. If you run low on health, use a Mushroom. Otherwise, keep
              attacking until you win!

Goomba King/Red Goomba/Blue Goomba
    Found: King Goomba's Fortress
    HP: 10 (King), 2 (Red), 2 (Blue)
    Star Points: 30
    Attack Power: 1 (All)
    Defense Power: 0 (All)
    Strategy: The battle against the King of the Goombas, as well as its two
              cronies, isn't really that big of a deal. Start off by using
              Jump attacks and Goombario's Headbonk attack to defeat the Red
              and Blue Goombas early on. An alternate method is to attack the
              Goomnut Tree first, causing the nut to fall and defeat the
              Red/Blue Goombas, as well as cause damage to the king. After
              you defeat both colored Goombas, concentrate on defeating
              Goomba King. To cause lots of damage when it's your turn to
              attack, aim your attack at the Goomnut Tree (the part of the
              tree with the bandage to the left of the boss). It'll drop a
              giant nut on the boss, causing a good amount of damage. After
              that, just keep on using regular attacks and such until you win
              the battle.

Magikoopa
    Found: Outside Shooting Star Summit
    HP: 8
    Star Points: 15
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 0
    Strategy: Well, this guy is a bit tougher than previous enemies, but he
              still isn't too much to worry about. Now is also a good time to
              start using those timed attacks Twink taught you minutes
              earlier! Attack Magikoopa a few times to knock him off his
              broom. Watch out because his magic attacks are pretty strong
              and can hurt quite a bit. Just keep on attacking this guy until
              you win.

Chan
    Found: Dojo in Toad Town
    HP: 15
    Star Points: N/A
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 2
    Strategy: This guy is your first opponent in the Dojo, and he is such a
              pushover! Have Mario Jump on him to flip him upside-down, then
              have Goombario attack on his turn. Repeat that process several
              times while using the timed attacks until you win this fight.

Lee
    Found: Dojo in Toad Town
    HP: 20
    Star Points: N/A
    Attack Power: N/A
    Defense Power: N/A
    Strategy: Being the second boss in the lineup at the Dojo, Lee isn't too
              tough, either. His main move is to morph into a duplicate of
              your current partner, which isn't that big of a deal. Use timed
              attacks to hurt this guy while healing when and if it's
              necessary. Keep up a steady attack pattern and this guy will be
              history very quickly.

The Master (First Battle)
    Found: Dojo in Toad Town
    HP: 50
    Star Points: N/A
    Attack Power: 6
    Defense Power: 0
    Strategy: Even though it's just the first round against the Master, he
              has a high amount of attack power. His only move is to punch
              you, taking away 6 HP, though. Use lots of strong Jump and
              Hammer attacks, along with your partner's best moves. It's
              recommended you don't come here until late in the game so you
              have stronger moves to use here. Basically, just outlast the
              Master and you'll win this battle.

The Master (Second Battle)
    Found: Dojo in Toad Town
    HP: 75
    Star Points: N/A
    Attack Power: 8
    Defense Power: 0
    Strategy: The second fight against the Master is quite hard compared to
              the first one. Also, he has a combo attack which can take 11 HP
              total from you. It's recommended you have Bow as your partner
              here, since you can use her Fan Smack to cause lots of damage.
              Just use the best Hammer and Jump attacks, making sure to keep
              your HP high at all times, until you win.

The Master (Third Battle)
    Found: Dojo in Toad Town
    HP: 99
    Star Points: N/A
    Attack Power: 10
    Defense Power: 1
    Strategy: This is the final battle you must endure against the Master,
              and this time around he is tough! However, there is a good
              strategy you can use to win this battle easily. It's highly
              recommended you have Bow as your partner; that way this plan
              works just fine. Have Mario attack with his Jump and Hammer
              attacks, then have Bow use Outta Sight to keep Mario from
              getting hit with the Master's attack. Otherwise, you'd be
              losing about 10 HP with each hit! It's still recommended you
              keep your HP very high at all times, in case the Master gets a
              few attacks in. After you take away enough of his HP, the
              Master starts hitting you with a two-part attack that takes
              away much more HP, so be careful. Just continue the above
              strategy while recovering every now and then until you win.

Bowser???
    Found: Koopa Bros. Fortress
    HP: 10
    Star Points: N/A
    Attack Power: 1
    Defense Power: 1
    Strategy: This giant imposter of King Bowser isn't too tough at all. It's
              invincible to jump attacks, but you can just hit it with lots
              of Hammer attacks instead. Just use lots of attacks until you
              destroy this simple creation.

Koopa Bros.
    Found: Koopa Bros. Fortress
    HP: 5 (per Koopa Bro)
    Star Points: 30
    Attack Power: 1
    Defense Power: 1
    Strategy: You fight these guys directly after defeating the fake Bowser.
              They start off all standing on top of each other like a tower,
              then they'll do their spinning attack, which'll take a good
              amount of HP from you. Have Bombette use her Bomb attack to
              knock them all down, then while they're flipped over, use
              regular attacks and POW Blocks (if you have any). Also, you
              should switch Bombette with Kooper so you can hit these guys
              all at once. Repeat the above pattern a few times until you
              defeat all 4 of the Koopa Bros.

Jr. Troopa (Second Fight)
    Found: Pleasant Path
    HP: 15
    Star Points: 20
    Attack Power: 2
    Defense Power: 1
    Strategy: This time when you fight Jr. Troppa, he has a new move, which
              is hiding inside of its egg to protect itself from attacks.
              This guy shouldn't be a big deal though. Just use Hammer
              attacks, and have Bombette use her Bomb move to cause serious
              damage as well. Heal when needed, and keep on attacking until
              you win.

Blooper
    Found: Toad Town Tunnels
    HP: 30
    Star Points: 20
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 0
    Strategy: This is the weakest Blooper you'll come across in the Toad Town
              Tunnels, and it really isn't too hard of a battle if you have
              the right badges equipped. If you have the Power Bounce Badge,
              you can easily make quick work of this guy. Just keep on using
              Power Bounces and using Refresh every now and then to recover
              some HP and FP. Repeat the above process until you beat this
              guy.

Buzzar
    Found: Mt. Rugged
    HP: 40
    Star Points: 15
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 0
    Strategy: Well, this giant bird isn't too tough, although the battle can
              be a bit lengthy if not properly prepared. Also, your Hammer is
              useless here, so you're going to rely on Jump attacks for the
              whole fight. If you have the Power Bounce Badge equipped, use
              the Power Bounce while using the action command to score
              multiple hits. When Buzzar attacks, sometimes the screen will
              tell you to press A repeatedly to get away or to reduce the
              blow of its attack. Press A rapidly to get out, then continue
              your attack while recovering HP/FP if needed until you win.

Tutankoopa
    Found: Dry Dry Ruins
    HP: 30
    Star Points: 24
    Attack Power: 3
    Defense Power: 0
    Strategy: This guy is the hardest boss I've fought so far in this game.
              To start, he'll call out a Chomp to stay on the ground and
              attack you. Ignore it if you want, and concentrate on using
              Jump attacks on Tutankoopa. Also, have Parakarry attack
              Tutankoopa since his attacks will reach. Tutankoopa will throw
              shells at you and cast spells to try and cause damage to you.
              Just keep your HP and FP high and keep on attacking him.
              Eventually, one of Tutankoopa's spells will backfire and he'll
              fall to the ground, dazed. There's your chance to continue
              attacking him until you defeat him for good. Keep in mind that
              when you beat Tutankoopa, the Chomp disappears as well.

Electro Blooper
    Found: Toad Town Tunnels
    HP: 50
    Star Points: 20
    Attack Power: 4
    Defense Power: 0
    Strategy: This Blooper is electrically charged, and much more powerful
              than the first one you fought earlier in the game. Attack this
              creature normally until it starts surrounding itself with
              electricity, then just avoid contact with it until it stops.
              Use that time to heal your group and get ready for another
              attack. It's recommended you have Parakarry in your group for
              this battle since his Shell Shot attack will really come in
              handy. Also, have Mario use the Power Bounce to attack since
              that'll really help this battle go by a bit quicker. Continue
              the above strategy until you beat this creature.

Tubba's Heart
    Found: Windy Mill
    HP: 50
    Star Points: N/A
    Attack Power: 6
    Defense Power: 0
    Strategy: This is seriously an easy battle, despite the high amount of HP
              this thing has. It's also HIGHLY recommended you have Bow as
              your partner for this fight as well. Have Mario use Jump
              attacks, while Bow slaps around the Heart. When it charges up
              for a major attack, have Bow use Outta Sight on Mario to keep
              him from getting hit by that attack. After the huge attack
              passes, resume the regular attack pattern. Keep your HP and FP
              high in case the Heart's attacks get the best of you.
              Otherwise, keep on hitting it with attacks until it runs away.

Tubba Blubba
    Found: Outside Windy Mill
    HP: 10
    Star Points: 30
    Attack Power: 4
    Defense Power: 0
    Strategy: Fighting the giant creature is one of the easiest fights in the
              game! It has VERY low amounts of HP, and its attacks won't do
              too much harm to you, either. Have Mario and Bow attack this
              creature until it's defeated and you win Chapter 3!

Jr. Troopa (Third Fight)
    Found: Forever Forest
    HP: 40
    Star Points: 21
    Attack Power: 5
    Defense Power: 1
    Strategy: This time around in the battle with Jr. Troopa, he's sprouted
              wings and flies in the air. However, he still isn't too much of
              a threat. Switch your partner so you have Parakarry, then use
              his Power Shell ability to cause a good amount of damage. Have
              Mario Jump or use the Star Storm ability you just learned from
              Skolar. Keep your HP high and continue the attacks until you
              defeat Jr. Troopa once again.

Anti Guy
    Found: Shy Guy's Toy Box
    HP: 50
    Star Points: 15
    Attack Power: 10
    Defense Power: 0
    Strategy: Now THIS is the toughest foe I've fought so far in the game.
              Besides having a lot of HP, it also causes at least 10 HP of
              damage per attack! I highly recommend you have the Power Bounce
              Badge equipped, as well as lots of healing items in reserve.
              Keep using the Power Bounce to hit Anti Guy multiple times, and
              use Bow's transparency ability if you don't want to be hit by
              the attack. Keep your HP up at all times, and outlast Anti Guy
              until you win.

Big Lantern Ghost
    Found: Shy Guy's Toy Box
    HP: 40
    Star Points: 15
    Attack Power: 5
    Defense Power: 0
    Strategy: The fight against this boss is a little different than other
              fights. You are unable to attack it when it's hiding in the
              dark, so attack the lantern to make the room brighter. Then,
              direct your attacks at the giant boss. Watch out when it does
              its flash attack with the lantern because it'll keep your
              partner from helping for a couple turns. Repeat the same
              strategy as above until you defeat this simple guy.

General Guy
    Found: Shy Guy's Toy Box
    HP: 30
    Star Points: 33
    Attack Power: 4
    Defense Power: 2
    Strategy: This battle takes place in 4 phases. First, he'll send the Shy
              Squad to attack you. Attack them to make them disperse and run
              away, defeated. After you beat them, General Guy will send out
              2 Stilt Guys to attack you. Defeat them, then he'll send out 2
              Shy Stacks. Beat them and General Guy will resort to attacking
              you himself from inside his tank. The general has 2 attacks;
              one of which you can immediately put a stop to. Start by
              attacking the Bulb on top of the tank until it bursts. By doing
              that, you're preventing General Guy from using his electrical
              attack on you. He'll just throw bombs at you instead. Just keep
              attacking General Guy with lots of attacks and keeping your
              HP/FP high until you beat him.

Lava Piranha/Lava Bud
    Found: Mt. Lavalava
    HP: 40 (Piranha), 8 (Bud)
    Star Points: 30
    Attack Power: 5 (Piranha), 4 (Bud)
    Defense Power: 0
    Strategy: This giant fiery plant is pretty tough if you think about it.
              All three parts of the plant (the main body, and the 2 smaller
              parts) shoot fire at you to attack. It's recommended you have
              Sushie as your partner, and the Fire Shield and Ice Power
              Badges equipped for this as well. Use Jump attacks and Sushie's
              Tidal Wave and Squirt attacks to cause massive damage to these
              plants. It's recommended you take out the Lava Buds first; that
              way, you won't have to worry about them attacking you for now.
              Keep attacking the giant Lava Piranha until it all sinks into
              the lava, only to emerge again, covered with fire! Also, all 3
              parts will become fully charged once again. This time around
              though, water attacks take more HP away from them, plus when
              they're hit, they'll be temporarily out of commission. Repeat
              the same attack pattern as before to defeat this creature the
              second and final time.

Jr. Troopa (Fourth Fight)
    Found: Toad Town
    HP: 40 (he only has 20 total when you fight him)
    Star Points: 22
    Attack Power: 6
    Defense Power: 1
    Strategy: This time around, Jr. Troopa can fly, plus he has a spiked
              helmet. It's recommended you have the Spike Shield Badge on;
              that way, Mario can use Jump attacks successfully against him.
              Have Sushie on your team so you can use her Squirt and Tidal
              Wave attacks here. Just keep attacking this guy until you win,
              since the fight shouldn't be too hard.

Super Blooper
    Found: Toad Town Tunnels
    HP: 70
    Star Points: 25
    Attack Power: 5
    Defense Power: 0
    Strategy: This is the toughest of the 3 Bloopers in the tunnels you'll
              have to fight. Despite its size and amount of power, it still
              isn't a big deal. The only real difference this time is that it
              sends out Blooper Babies to attack you as well. I highly
              recommend you have lots of healing items with you because you
              WILL need them! Use lots of Jump and Star Spirit attacks, and
              use your partner's strongest attacks as well. When it shoots
              out Blooper Babies, crush them all with a Star Storm if you're
              able to. Keep your HP and FP up, and repeat the above pattern
              until you win.

Spike?
    Found: Flower Fields
    HP: 50
    Star Points: 12
    Attack Power: 4
    Defense Power: 0
    Strategy: This Lakitu is different from the others since it doesn't want
              to actually attack you, but it does anyway. It only throws
              Spiny Eggs at you to attack, so retaliate by using lots of
              strong Jump attacks and your partner's moves as well. I
              recommend you have Bow as your partner so you can use her Fan
              Smack to cause lots of damage. Just outlast this guy until you
              win.

Huff N. Puff/Tuff Puff
    Found: Cloudy Climb
    HP: 60 (Huff N. Puff), 1 (Tuff Puff)
    Star Points: 34
    Attack Power: 5 (Huff N. Puff), 2 (Tuff Puff)
    Defense Power: 0
    Strategy: This battle can be a pretty long one if you don't have a good
              strategy here. Also, it helps to have Lakilester in your team
              for this fight as well. Each time you attack this boss, smaller
              Tuff Puffs will fall off and attack. Use an attack to hit the
              whole party because if you don't, Huff N. Puff will inhale the
              smaller clouds and regain some HP. After a few rounds, Huff N.
              Puff will become electrically charged for a really strong
              attack, which will take about 12 HP off of you! Keep your HP
              and FP up and continue with all the strong attacks until you
              finally defeat this creature.

Kent C. Koopa
    Found: Pleasant Path
    HP: 70
    Star Points: 20
    Attack Power: 10
    Defense Power: 6
    Strategy: This giant Koopa is really tough, so it's recommended you have
              lots of strong attacks with you! Now is also the time you
              should have the Mega Smash and Quick Change Badges equipped.
              Right from the start, have Mario use the Lullaby Star Power to
              make the giant creature fall asleep for a while. After that,
              have him do a Jump attack using the action command to flip Kent
              C. Koopa on its backside. Use the time while it's asleep to
              pummel it with lots of strong Hammer and Jump attacks, along
              with your partner's strongest moves. When it wakes up, repeat
              the above process again until you defeat it.

Jr. Troopa (Fifth Fight)
    Found: Shiver Snowfield
    HP: 50
    Star Points: 24
    Attack Power: 8
    Defense Power: 1
    Strategy: This time around, Jr. Troopa will be able to use magic to
              attack you. Despite his high attack power rating, he still
              isn't too tough to beat. Use lots of Jump and Hammer attacks,
              along with your partner's strong moves to take down this magic
              user once again. It would also help if you still have the Mega
              Smash Badge equipped, since a Hammer attack with that will take
              10 HP each time! Anyway, keep attacking and such until you win
              here.

Crystal King/Crystal Bit
    Found: Crystal Palace
    HP: 70 (King), 1 (Bit)
    Star Points: 42
    Attack Power: 6 (King), N/A (Bit)
    Defense Power: 2 (King), 0 (Bit)
    Strategy: Well, this battle is really tough, especially since this boss's
              attacks take a good amount of HP from you. I recommend you have
              Lakilester as your partner, as well as several good attack
              Badges equipped. Also, a couple of HP Plus Badges won't hurt
              too much. Anyway, the Crystal King summons Crystal Bits to
              attack you during this battle, so those can be pretty annoying.
              Use lots of really strong attacks with their action commands to
              cause lots of damage through the king's high defense power.
              Have Lakilester use Spiny Surge to destroy the Crystal Bits and
              hurt the Crystal King all in one shot. Also, beware since this
              boss can freeze Mario in his tracks for a few rounds. After you
              weaken him enough, the Crystal King will summon two clones,
              although you can only hurt the real one. Use a multi-target
              attack to hit them all. Watch out because he'll also recover 20
              HP when he's running low. Keep up your attacks until you defeat
              this annoying and tough boss.

Jr. Troopa (Final Fight)
    Found: Bowser's Castle
    HP: 60
    Star Points: 25
    Attack Power: 8
    Defense Power: 2
    Strategy: This is apparently the final time you have to battle this
              little menace, and he's the hardest yet! Jr. Troopa has all of
              his previous abilities to attack you with, so this battle might
              be a pain to get through. It's highly recommended you have Watt
              as your partner, since its powers can go right through this
              guy's defense. After you take about half of his HP, he'll
              become able to fly and will gain a spiked helmet. Hurt him with
              strong attacks (the Spike Shield Badge would be great here)
              until you make him go back to the ground. He'll then try to use
              magic to destroy you, so continue with strong attacks until you
              beat him once and for all!

Bowser (First Round)
    Found: Princess Peach's Castle
    HP: 50
    Star Points: 38
    Attack Power: 8 (Fire Attack), 6 (Stamp/Nail Attacks)
    Defense Power: 1
    Strategy: Well, this first battle against Bowser may seem tough, but it's
              really a piece of cake for now. For the first couple rounds,
              just use regular attacks (also, make sure Watt is your current
              partner). After Bowser uses the Star Rod to make himself
              invincible, have Mario use the Star Beam to void that power
              temporarily. Now's your chance to attack! Watch out when Bowser
              uses his attack where he crushes Mario because it'll
              temporarily disable one of your attacks! Also, his swiping
              attack will also poison Mario, so be careful! Repeat this
              pattern after he regains the Star Rod's power until you beat
              him this round.

Bowser (Final Battle)
    Found: Princess Peach's Castle
    HP: 99
    Star Points: N/A
    Attack Power: 10 (Fire Attack), 8 (Stamp/Nail Attacks)
    Defense Power: 2
    Strategy: Wow, this is definitely the final battle with Bowser himself!
              This is going to be one hell of a long battle, so brace
              yourself for a fight! Basically, he's a much stronger version
              of the battle you had with him inside the castle moments
              earlier. It's highly recommended you avoid his Stamp Attack by
              pressing A before impact. If you're not careful, he'll disable
              one of your battle options for a few rounds! The battle plan
              here is the same as last time; whenever Bowser uses the Star
              Rod, use the Star Beam. Since it won't affect Bowser, you'll
              see a quick scene with Twink rescuing the Princess, then having
              to fight with Kammy. In that fight, just use their abilities to
              get through it all. After that's over, Peach will wish for
              Mario, and that will charge up the Star Spirits' powers. They
              will appear and charge Mario up, giving him the Peach Beam. Use
              the Peach Beam in battle to void the Star Rod's powers. Use
              that time to hit Bowser quickly with strong attacks. Watch out
              because when you weaken him enough, he'll use the Star Rod to
              recover a good chunk of his HP (as if fighting him was bad
              enough). Keep on repeating the above pattern of using the Peach
              Beam, then attacking, to get through this battle. Also, it's a
              good thing if you have several Life Shrooms, so you'll keep
              getting revived after Bowser takes all your HP. Continue the
              assault until you finally defeat Bowser for good and beat this
              game!

    Badge Points: 2
    Information: When equipped, Mario will be able to really charge up his
                 Hammer. This ability costs 4 FP each time it's used. It'll
                 increase his Hammer power by 3 points, but it'll disappear
                 after he attacks.

Shrink Stomp
    Found: Toad Town Tunnels
    Badge Points: 1
    Information: If equipped, Mario will have the option to Shrink Stomp an
                 enemy, at the cost of 2 FP. If successful, the enemy will
                 become smaller, thus lowering its attack power.

Sleep Stomp
    Found: Rowf's Badge Shop
    Badge Points: 1
    Information: When this is equipped, you'll gain the Sleep Stomp Jump
                 attack for Mario. It costs 2 FP per use, and it can cause
                 the enemy you hit to fall asleep for a few rounds of battle.

Slow Go
    Found: Dry Dry Ruins
    Badge Points: 0
    Information: This is about the most useless badge, in my own opinion. It
                 prevents Mario from running, which is only useful in areas
                 where you don't want to wake up sleeping enemies by running
                 past.

Smash Charge
    Found: Koopa Bros. Fortress
    Badge Points: 1
    Information: In battle, Mario will be able to charge up his Hammer to
                 make it more powerful. It costs 1 FP each time you charge it
                 up, though.

Speedy Spin
    Found: Rowf's Badge Shop
    Badge Points: 1
    Information: When equipped, Mario will be able to spin further when using
                 his spin dash.

Spike Shield
    Found: Dry Dry Ruins
    Badge Points: 2
    Information: When equipped, Mario will be able to use Jump attacks on
                 spiked enemies without getting hurt.

Spin Attack
    Found: Dry Dry Desert
    Badge Points: 3
    Information: When equipped, you can defeat weak enemies without even
                 going into battle with them by spin dashing into them.

Spin Smash
    Found: Rowf's Badge Shop
    Badge Points: 1
    Information: When equipped, Mario will be able to use this Hammer attack
                 in battle at 2 FP per use. When he hits an enemy, that enemy
                 will smash into the enemies behind it, causing damage to
                 them as well.

Triple Dip
    Found: Crystal Palace
    Badge Points: 3
    Information: When equipped, it allows Mario to use 3 items in the same
                 turn, provided there are at least 6 FP available.

Zap Tap
    Found: Merluvlee's House (trade with Merlow)
    Badge Points: 4
    Information: If this is equipped, most enemies that physically touch you
                 in battle will get hurt.

-=  17. Koopa Koot Favors -=
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

In Koopa Village, there is an old Koopa that lives next door to Kooper, whose 
name is Koopa Koot. If you come and talk to him, he'll ask you to do him a 
favor of some sort. Succeed and he'll give you a reward (although very few of 
his rewards are actually good). Here's a list of the favors he'll ask you, 
the reward(s) you receive for doing them (You can get 15 Star Pieces from 
doing these favors!), and at what point of the game you'll be able to do 
these favors in:

=================================
After Kooper Becomes Your Partner
=================================

1. You will be asked to go to Kolorado's house in Koopa Village and borrow
   the book "Koopa Legends". Bring him the book and he'll give you one Coin
   as the reward.

2. Koot will want you to get him a Sleepy Sheep item so he can go to sleep.
   Give him the item (buy it at Shroom Grocery in Toad Town) and you'll
   receive a single Coin and a Silver Credit as rewards.


===============
After Chapter 1
===============

3. Koopa Koot will have you go to Goomba Village and ask Goompa to give you a
   Tape he borrowed a while ago. Bring it back to get the reward, which is
   one Coin.

4. This time, Koopa Koot will ask you to bring him some Koopa Tea. Find a
   Koopa Leaf in the bushes in Koopa Village, then get to Toad Town. Give it
   to Tayce T. and have her cook it to make Koopa Tea. Bring it to Koot to
   win three Star Pieces!

5. For his fifth favor, Koopa Koot will ask you to get him an autograph of
   Luigi. So, get to Mario's House via the pipe at the entrance to Toad Town
   and talk to Luigi to get the Autograph (if Luigi is not there, come back
   after progressing the story a little). Bring it to Koopa Koot to get one
   Coin as the reward.


===============
After Chapter 2
===============

6. Koopa Koot will tell you that his wallet is lost from when he went out to
   the shop, so he'll ask you to go find it. Go back to the first area of
   Koopa Village and check the bushes to find the Empty Wallet. Bring it to
   Koot to get the one Coin reward.

7. Koot will ask you to bring him a Tasty Tonic item to make him feel better.
   Go to a shop (Harry's Shop in Toad Town) and buy the Tasty Tonic, then
   bring it to him and gain the one Coin as a reward again.

8. Koopa Koot will ask you to obtain Merluvlee's autograph for him. So, go to
   Merluvlee's house near Shooting Star Valley, and talk to her. She'll give
   you the autograph if you visit Merlee in Dry Dry Outpost and get her a
   crystal ball. Merlee is in an alley behind the shop in the second area. Do
   that, then Merluvlee will give you the Autograph. Bring it to Koopa Koot
   and he'll give you three Star Pieces in return!


===============
After Chapter 3
===============

9. For the next favor, Koopa Koot will ask you to read the Toad Town News for
   him. So, go to Toad Town and read the news (it's the sign to the left of
   Merlon's house). Read both the front AND the back of the sign, then visit
   Koot again to get one Coin.

10. Koopa Koot will ask you to get him a Life Shroom to make him feel better.
    Bring him this special item (the shop in Boo's Mansion sells them) and
    he'll give you one Coin, as well as the Gold Credit.

11. This time, Koot will have a craving for a Nutty Cake. He'll ask you to
    have Tayce T. bake one for you. However, the ingredient needed is the
    Goomnut, so go to Goomba Village and hit a tree to get one. Give it to
    Tayce T. and get the Nutty Cake, then bring it to Koot to get that one
    Coin reward.


===============
After Chapter 4
===============

12. Koot will complain about the people in the house next door, and he'll ask
    you to tell them to quiet down. Go next door into the house, then make
    Bombette your partner and talk to the Bob-ombs to make them quiet down.
    Go back to Koot and he'll give you three Star Pieces as a reward.

13. For the next favor he asks, Koopa Koot wants you to get him a photo the
    Boos in Boo's Mansion have. So, head to Boo's Mansion and talk to the Boo
    in the first room (Franky) to get the Old Photo. Bring it back to get one
    Coin as a reward.

14. Koopa Koot will ask you to bring him some Koopasta from Tayce T. The
    ingredients are a Koopa Leaf and Dried Pasta (get a Koopa Leaf from the
    bushes in town, and buy Dried Pasta in Dry Dry Outpost). Give those to
    Tayce T. and have her make the Koopasta. Give it to Koot to get the one
    Coin.


===============
After Chapter 5
===============

15. Koot will tell you that he lost his glasses somewhere in the village, and
    he wants you to look for them. Check all the bushes in Koopa Village
    until you find them, then return them to get one Coin as a reward.

16. This time, Koopa Koot is hungry and wants you to get him a Lime. Go to
    the oasis in Dry Dry Desert and hit the green tree to get one, then bring
    it back to get three Star Pieces!

17. For the next favor on the list, Koopa Koot will want you to get him a
    Kooky Cookie. That requires you to give Tayce T. of Toad Town the Cake
    Mix and a Koopa Leaf to make. Find the Cake Mix in Shy Guy's Toy Box and
    the Koopa Leaf in the bushes of Koopa Village. Have Tayce T. make the
    cookie, then bring it to Koot to get the reward of one Coin.


===============
After Chapter 6
===============

18. Koopa Koot will tell you that a Boo in Gusty Gulch has a package for him.
    He'll send you to go get it for him, obviously. Head to Gusty Gulch and
    talk to the Boos until you find the one with the package. He'll tell you
    to wait a moment, so leave the area and return. Talk to the Boo again and
    you will get the Package. Bring it to Koot to get one Coin.

19. For this favor, Koopa Koot will ask you to bring him a Coconut. So, head
    to Lavalava Beach or Yoshi's Village and hit a tree with the Hammer to
    get a Coconut. Bring it back and you'll get one Coin as a reward.

20. For his final favor, Koopa Koot will tell you about this Red Jar in Dry
    Dry Outpost he wants. He tells you to buy a bunch of items in a certain
    order in their shop as well. Go to the Dry Dry Outpost shop and buy the
    following in this order: Dusty Hammer, Dried Pasta, Dusty Hammer, then
    Dried Shroom. Doing so will make the shopkeeper give you the Red Jar.
    Bring it back to Koot to get three Star Pieces.

-=  18. Chuck Quizmo Questions  -=
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

In each of the towns of the game, a weird looking guy named Chuck Quizmo will 
randomly appear. He'll then ask you a quiz question about something in the 
game. Correctly answer the question to win a Star Piece. There are 64 
different questions he will ask in order, and you only hear one each time you 
see him. If you get one wrong, he'll repeat the question next time you find 
him.

Unfortunately, you can not view all 64 questions early in the game, 
especially if you have not been to the areas of the game they are about. Here 
is a breakdown of when more questions become available.

Question    Accessible
--------    ----------
1-30        After Chapter 2
31-37       After Chapter 3
38-44       After Chapter 4
45-52       After Chapter 5
53-60       After Chapter 6
61-64       After Chapter 7

The best way to quickly complete this side quest is to use the pipes located 
in the Toad Town Tunnels. Specifically, the ones leading to Dry Dry Outpost, 
Koopa Village, and Goomba Village. Simply go down the pipes into those areas, 
and look for Chuck Quizmo in the usual place (usually it's near the pipe, but 
he may be across town as well), then leave and return as needed.

==============
Li'l Oink Farm
==============

In the southernmost area of Toad Town, on the east side of the path, there is 
an area called Toad Town's Famous Li'l Oink Farm. Stand on the little 
platform in front of the building with the pig statue on top, then jump up 
and hit the ledge. You'll pay 10 Coins, causing an egg to come out. Hit the 
egg with your Hammer to hatch a Li'l Oink, which will then hang out in the 
fenced area to the right. There can only be 10 of them in the pen at once, so 
when the 11th one is hatched, the first one you hatched will leave, dropping 
an item in the pen for you to get. Be warned though: if you enter the pen, 
the other Oinks will run away, so make sure it's a worthwhile item before 
chasing the others away! Here's a list of what items the Li'l Oinks will 
leave when the pen gets full:

    Oink Type      Item
    ---------      ----
    White          Super Shroom
    Black          Dried Shroom
    Flower         Maple Syrup
    Pink           Fire Flower
    Tiger          Thunder Rage
    Question Mark  Repel Gel
    Shroom         Life Shroom
    Star           Shooting Star
    Silver         Jammin' Jelly
    Gold           Ultra Shroom


============
The Playroom
============

In Toad Town, there is a hidden place called the Playroom. In the southmost 
area of the town (the area with the train station), when you enter that area 
you'll see grass to the left. Go there and hit the tree with your Hammer to 
make a pipe appear; go down it to enter the Playroom. Here, depending on what 
Credit you have (get these from Koopa Koot by fulfilling some of his 
requests), you can get into the mini-games here. Here's a brief overview of 
the two mini-games to be played in the Playroom:

Jump Attack
-----------

Cost: 10 Coins per game
Credit Needed: Silver Credit
Information: In this game, 11 blocks will appear in the air. When you hit a
             block, one of several panels can come out. The amount of coins
             you win is determined by which panels you hit (it's random, so
             you don't see what you get until you hit a block). You have the
             option to hit either 5, 7, or 9 blocks, and if you successfully
             get through the 9-Block Challenge, the amount of coins you win
             is doubled as a bonus. Here's a quick list of the panels and
             what they do, and that'll be about it for this mini-game:

    1-Coin Panel: Get 1 Coin
    5-Coin Panel: Get 5 Coins
    5-Times Panel: Multiplies amount of coins won so far by 5
    Bowser Panel: Game ends, and you lose all coins won

Smash Attack
------------

Cost: 10 Coins per game
Credit Needed: Gold Credit
Information: In this game, several rows of blocks will appear in the room. If
             you hit a block with your Hammer, either one of two things will
             happen: a Peach Panel will come out, or a Fuzzy/Bob-omb will
             come out, slowing you down from your goal. You must find 10
             Peach Panels in 30 seconds to win the game, however. As you run
             around past the blocks, Peach Panels and Fuzzies sometimes jump
             up and down, giving you a hint as to where they are. At the end
             if you get all 10 Peach Panels, the amount of Coins you win
             depends on the amount of time remaining. Just multiply the
             amount of time left by 10 to find out what you win.

Club 64's Pop Diva Singing Troubles
===================================

When you visit the Club 64 in Toad Town, talk to the Pop Diva there. She'll 
tell you that she cannot sing since the castle was uprooted, and she needs 
help. Do the following steps to get Pop Diva to sing again:

1. Talk to the lyricist standing next to Pop Diva.

2. Go to Dry Dry Outpost and enter the rightmost house in the first section
   of town. Talk to the composer inside.

3. Go back to Club 64 and talk to the lyricist again. He'll give you the
   Lyrics, then tell you to talk to the composer again.

4. Head back to Dry Dry Outpost and talk to the composer again. Give him the
   Lyrics and he'll give you the Melody for it.

5. Bring the Melody to the lyricist in the club and he'll give it to Pop Diva
   to sing. You will then get the Attack FX D Badge as a reward.


====================================

find and be able to read Luigi's hidden diary!

him, and in which order:

8. Dried Shroom

The Mysterious Chet Rippo
=========================

In Toad Town, next to the shop in the southwest area of town, there is a 
weird character by the name of Chet Rippo. Pay him 39 Coins and he'll offer 
to boost your HP, FP, or BP. There is a catch to such a bonus, however. When 
you have him boost one of your attributes, the others decrease, so be 
careful!
