3. Characters and Partners
===========================

Mario: The main character of the series, as usual. Once again, he's on another 
adventure to go out and rescue Princess Peach from Bowser. He will be aided by 
several partners and will go out on a big adventure.

Luigi: Mario's younger brother. Unfortunately, he doesn't play much of a role 
in this game, except the fact of his hidden diary and his little surprise in 
the end of the game. Someday, it will be Luigi's true time to shine.

Princess Peach: The princess of the Mushroom Kingdom. She has always been 
captured in earlier Mario games, and this one's no exception. But you will 
control her several times throughout the game, where you can go out and do some 
pretty useful things for Mario.

Bowser: The evil King Koopa. Once again, he captures Princess Peach and lifts 
her castle dangerously high in the sky. But this time, he's aided by the Star 
Rod, which can make him unstoppable.

Kammy Koopa: Bowser's evil assistant. Kammy will do anything to go out and stop 
Mario, from setting traps to spying on him in parts of the game. You only fight 
her once in the entire game, and you don't do it as Mario either.

Twink: A little star that has come to help Princess Peach. But Twink is not 
powerful enough to grant Peach's wishes, but Twink will do whatever he can to 
help out Peach. Mario meets up with Twink a few times in the game, and he'll 
give you a Lucky Star on your first meeting.

Star Spirits: There are seven of these. All seven star spirits have been 
captured by Bowser, and Mario must rescue all seven of them before going out to 
stop Bowser and save Peach. Each star spirit aids Mario with a special ability 
and increases his magic meter for special attacks.

---------
Partners
---------

In nearly every chapter, Mario will have a new partner join the team. These 
partners can help him out by solving puzzles that Mario couldn't originally 
each. Mario will meet up with seven partners.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
GOOMBARIO
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

-A friendly Goomba, which becomes Mario's first place. And judging by 
it, he seems to be the smartest person in the game. He'll tell you about every 
last location in the game. If you walk up to a person and press C-Down, 
Goombario will even give you a bio on them...CREEPY! Personally, Goombario is 
my favorite, due to the fact he uses the least amount of Flower Points.

********
ATTACKS
********

Headbonk: Goombario will use his head to attack an enemy, but jumping on spiked 
enemies will knock him out for a turn. The action command for this attack is to 
hit A just before Goombario strikes the enemy.

Tattle: Goombario will give you a description for the enemy, including attacks, 
defense, and HP. After, you'll see the enemy's HP and how much they have 
remaining. For example, if you uses Tattle on a Goomba, you'll be able to see 
the HP bar for all Goombas in the game.

Charge: Requiring 1 FP, Goombario charges up by 2 attack points. Yes, this is 
cumulative too. Every time you charge, your attack will still increase! And 
when you've waited long enough, you can dish out the serious beatings.

Multibonk: This is similar to Mario's Power Bounce. Goombario will keep on 
smashing an enemy until you fail an Action Command. Only needs 3FP like Power 
Bounce, and the action command for attacking is A.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
KOOPER
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

A Koopa that will join Mario's team after you solve a Fuzzy situation behind 
his house. When you use Kooper, you can toss his shell to hit or collect 
distant things out of Mario's reach. You can even use it to do a sneak attack 
on an enemy first strike! 

********
ATTACKS
********

Shell Toss: Kooper attacks the enemy using his shell, and it can only attack 
the front enemy. The action command for this attack is to hold left on the 
analog stick until the big light is brightened up, and then release to do extra 
damage.

Power Shell: Kooper attacks all grounded enemies on the field, with the expense 
of 3 FP. 

Dizzy Shell: This is gained when upgrading Kooper to Super Rank. Kooper will 
use this attack to hit all enemies on the field and potentially make them dizzy 
and knock them out for a few turns using up 4 FP. The action command for this 
attack is to tap A as fast as you can and try to make it 100%. The higher you 
fill the bar up, the more likely you are to get more enemies dizzier for longer 
period of times.

Fire Shell: This is gained when upgrading Kooper to Ultra Rank. Kooper will use 
this fiery attack to hit all enemies on the field, which is much more powerful 
than Power Shell. This attack uses 5 FP. It is also extremely useful for 
dealing with the Dry Bones in Bowser's Castle.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOMBETTE
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

A bob-omb met in the Koopa Bros. Fortress. She can blow up walls, 
destroy rocks, and activate certain things. Like Kooper, you can use her as a 
bomb to get a powerful first strike as an enemy.
 
********
ATTACKS
********

Body Slam: Bombette will charge at the front enemy and ram herself into the 
enemy doing some damage. The action command for this attack is to hold A to 
increase the power meter and then to release the button when the big light is 
lightened up.

Bomb: Bombette will walk up to the front enemy and explode in front of the 
enemy, doing a good bit of damage. This attack uses up 3 FP. The action command 
for this attack is to keep tapping A to increase the power meter and try to get 
it to 100%. The more the meter is filled up, the more damage will be done.

Power Bomb: No, we're not talking about those WWE moves. You can use this 
attack after Bombette is upgraded to Super Rank. Bombette will do the same 
amount of damage as Bomb will do, but it will attack all ground enemies on the 
field at the cost of 6 FP. The action command is the same, try to keep tapping 
A to increase is to 100%.

Mega Bomb: Rewarded when Bombette is upgraded to Ultra Rank. As Power Bomb 
does, it does the same damage as Bomb, but this time it'll attack ALL enemies 
on the field, regardless of being in the air or not. It'll use up 8 FP, but 
you'll have a wee bit more time to charge up power meter by tapping the A 
button.
 
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
PARAKARRY
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The flying Parakoopa who delivers the mail to everybody out there. You can have 
him fly you across small gaps that Mario can't jump over himself. Another 
special feature is that if you find letters, you can deliver them to the 
appropriate person with Parakarry and you'll get a Star Piece in return.

********
ATTACKS
********

Sky Dive: Parakarry will fly into the air and kick the enemy. He will get hurt 
if he kicks a spiked enemy. The action command for this attack is to press A 
just before Parakarry kicks the enemy. Kind of tricky to do for some people, 
since the timing can be very annoying.

Shell Shot: Parakarry will shoot himself into an enemy causing a good amount of 
damage at the cost of 3 FP. It can hit any enemy on the field, even those who 
are on the ceiling. The action command is to hold left on the control stick as 
soon as you select the attack. Now as long as you are holding left, the cursor 
will move up and down. When the cursor aligns with the enemy, let go of the 
control stick and Parakarry should hit the enemy.

Air Lift: Rewarded when Parakarry is upgraded to super rank. Parakarry will 
grab onto an enemy and lift him out of the field for 3 FP. If this does happen, 
you will not get credit for the Star Points coming out of that enemy. The 
action command for this attack is to keep tapping A while you are trying to 
grab onto the enemy.

Air Raid: Rewarded when Parakarry is upgraded to ultra rank. Parakarry will 
scythe himself through the screen to damage all enemies while using up 6 FP. To 
use this attack, keep pressing left on the control stick to raise the damage 
meter. The higher the damage meter, the more damage you will do.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOW
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

A ghost that will join your team on your mission to take out Tubba Blubba. 
She doesn't do much, except her special ability is that you can have her hide 
you and confuse the enemies attacking you. Other than that, she isn't worth too 
much.

********
ATTACKS
********
Smack: Bow will smack the enemy several times, but she only does 1 HP for each 
smack, so this is not recommended for enemies that have a defense better than 
one. This move's action command is to keep pressing left on the control stick 
to raise the damage meter. The higher the damage meter, the more times Bow will 
smack the enemy.

Outta Sight: Bow will protect Mario for one turn and no attack can damage 
Mario. Using this will cost 2 FP. However, after you use this attack, Bow 
cannot attack for the next turn, so be sure to use it wisely.

Spook: Rewarded whenever Bow is upgraded to super rank. Bow will try to scare 
the crap out of all the enemies and make them run away at the expense of 3 FP. 
If enemies do run away from using this attack, you will not be credited with 
the Star Points. The Action Command for using this attack is to keep pressing 
left on the control stick to raise the meter as high as you can.

Fan Smack: Rewarded whenever Bow is upgraded to ultra Rank. This is like smack, 
except more powerful. Bow will do 2 HP for each smack instead of one. Just like 
her other attacks, the move's action command is to keep pressing left on the 
control stick to raise the damager meter. The higher the meter, the more times 
she will smack the enemy. This move requires 5 FP.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
WATT
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
A little watt that can be very useful when fighting any kind of enemy. You'll 
find Watt inside a dark area of Shy Guy's Toy Box. Watt's special ability is 
that he can light up darkened rooms and with the light, you can even see 
invisible blocks! In battle, Watt's standard attack will attack at full force, 
even if the enemy has a defense higher than 0. This is really useful as you 
progress later in the game.

********
ATTACKS
********

Electro Dash: This attack will always do maximum damage to any enemy, 
regardless of what their defense is. The action command for this attack is to 
hold H until the meter reaches the light and when the light brightens up, let 
go of A. If you fail this action command, then Watt will only do 1 HP of 
damage.

Power Shock: At the cost of 2 FP, you can use this attack to shock and paralyze 
any enemy and knock them out for a few turns. The action command for this 
attack is to keep tapping A to raise the damage meter. The higher the meter, 
the more of a chance you have or paralyzing the enemy.

Turbo Boost: This is rewarded to Watt upon upgrading her to super rank. You can 
use this attack to upgrade Mario's attack for up to 4 turns, using 3 FP in the 
process. The action command is to wait until each big light is lighted up. Each 
time a big light is brightened, quickly press A. You'll either get a circle or 
an X saying if you've got it right or wrong. Each time you get a circle, 
Mario's attack will be upgraded for at least 1 more turn.

Mega Shock: This is rewarded whenever Watt is upgraded to Ultra Rank. This is 
like Power Shock, except Watt has the chance to shock all enemies on the field, 
using 5 FP in the process. The action command is to keep tapping A and B at the 
same time to raise the damage meter. The higher the meter, the better chance 
you have of paralyzing the enemies or paralyzing them for longer periods of 
time.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
SUSHI 
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

A fish that can seem to control the baby Yoshis on Yoshi's Island. You 
can use Sushi to surf across water and when battling, his squirt attack will 
come useful against fire-type enemies inside LavaLava Island.

********
ATTACKS
********

Belly Flop: Sushi will Belly Flop himself onto an enemy, but he will be hurt if 
trying it against a spiked enemy (dead fish anybody)? To use this attack, hold 
left on the control stick until the big light is brightened up. Then let go of 
left and Sushi will then attack the enemy.

Squirt: This is an interesting squirting attack that uses up 3 FP. Now, to use 
this attack, you must hold A to raise the meter, but if the meter gets 100% 
full, the meter goes down and you cannot control it. When the meter gets to the 
top, let go of A, but keep tapping A softly to make sure the meter doesn't go 
down and try to keep it as full as you can without making it go 100%. The 
higher the meter, the more damage Sushi will give out, and this is great 
against fire enemies.

Water Block: Sushi gets this attack when he is upgraded to Super Rank. This is 
like Turbo Boost, except with this attack, using 3 FP, you can upgrade Mario's 
defense for up to 4 turns. The action command is still the same: hit A each 
time a big light brightens up. Each time you get an action command correctly, 
you get another turn with upgraded defense.

Tidal Wave: A cool attack that uses 6 FP and Sushi will get this when he is 
upgraded to Ultra Rank. Sushi will attack all enemies on the screen with a huge 
tidal wave, and it does take some time to get used to the Action Command. In 
the top right, you will either see "A", "B" or "C-Down". Press the 
corresponding button and then you'll see another button randomly selected pop 
up again. Each time you get an action command right, you will do another HP of 
damage.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
LAKILESTER 
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Nicknamed "Spike", he will join you, abandoning his girlfriend Lakilulu in 
Flower Fields. He can get you across lava pits and even spiked paths. He's not 
really worth much in battle, with the exception of Cloud Nine, which protects 
you against attacks. You need good accuracy in order to hit enemies with 
Lakilester.

******** 
ATTACKS
********

Spiny Flip: Kind of an annoying attack, because the action command can get a 
bit irritating. You can use this attack to toss a Spiny at the targeted enemy. 
Now, to use this attack, you need to aim the cursor at the enemy using your 
control stick and then press A (or do nothing and Lakilester will automatically 
throw it). If it hits, you do damage, if not, you miss.

Spiny Surge: Attacks all enemies on the screen with a minimal amount of damages 
by throwing out a ton of Spinies. This attack uses up 4 FP. The action command 
for this attack is to keep pressing left on the control stick to raise up the 
meter to 100%. The higher the meter, the more damage you will do to all 
enemies.

Cloud Nine: Rewarded when Lakilester is upgraded to super rank, this attack is 
similar to Water Block and Turbo Boost, but with this attack, you can protect 
Mario in a cloud. This means that sometimes (but not all the time) enemies will 
fail to attack Mario. The action command is the same, by pressing A each time a 
big light is brightened up. Each time you do this, Mario is protected for an 
additional turn. This attack uses up 4 FP.

Hurricane: This is given to Lakilester upon upgrading him to ultra rank. 
Lakilester will try to create a hurricane to blow some, if not all enemies off 
the field, but if this is done, all enemies blown away will not give you credit 
for star points. You need 5 FP to use this attack. The action command for this 
attack is to keep tapping A and B to raise the meter. The higher the meter, the 
better chance you have of blowing the enemies away.

===============
4. Walkthrough
===============

Before all of these events happen, Bowser will go into Star Haven, steal the 
Star Rod, and capture all of the Star Spirits. But nobody in the Mushroom 
Kingdom knows this yet, and now he's set out for his next target: Princess 
Peach.

The game starts with a scene outside Mario's house, where a flying Koopa Troopa 
comes and delivers mail. Luigi comes outside and brings the mail outside. It is 
a letter, so he decides to read it to Mario.

"I'm throwing a party at my castle today! Mario and Luigi, I would be honored 
if you both could attend. Many guests from distant towns are hoping to meet 
you. There will be tasty sweets and all kinds of entertainment! I hope to see 
you there soon! 
Sincerely, Peach"

After reading the letter, the two brothers will head to Peach's castle. Don't 
worry, the game will automatically take you inside. Luigi will stay in the 
center room, but you on the other hand can go out and explore the rest of the 
first floor. But head upstairs and go through the door. On the second floor, 
you can take either staircase to get to the door on the top. What's really 
interesting on this floor is the guard guarding Peach's room. If you talk to 
him enough times, he'll let you in and you can go through Peach's stuff.

Once you're done, head up the stairs and go through the door at the top. You'll 
find a lone Toad in this room who enjoys the peace and quiet here. Anyway, head 
right and go up the stairs. At the top, enter the door and you'll be in another 
straight hallway. Just head right and find Peach. She'll say how sweet it was 
of you to see her...Aw...that's blind love. Now, she'll invite you to hang out 
with her on her balcony.

Holy crap, an earthquake! It switches to an outside view and Peach's castle is 
suddenly uplifted by another castle. Hm, those evil eyes, the clown smile, 
swinging ball 'n' chains, it's all good, but it's Bowser's castle! Once you're 
high in the sky, Peach will ask you if you're ok. Moments later, Bowser rudely 
smashes through the window with Kammy and Mario will act like a tough guy in 
front of him.

BOSS: Bowser
HP: ??? 
Attack: 10
Defense: 0

There's nothing much you can do in this battle. Just jump on him and he'll hit 
you back. After you two exchange hits again, jump on him and he'll start 
ranting and pull out his trusty Star Rod to become invincible. At this point it 
should say "you lose", but the game lets you continue until Bowser eventually 
knows you out. Your jumps won't do anything, and Bowser's powered up too. After 
two more jumps, he'll end his misery by launching a flamethrower at you. Then 
Bowser kicks you out the window with a zap from the Star Rod and then you fall 
miles and miles down.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
Prologue: A Plea from the Stars
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

Mario has been beaten brutally and is pretty much near death, but can anyone 
have a final say in what happens?

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

With Mario lying on the ground, the seven (weak) star spirits appear and try to 
resurrect Mario with the little power they have left. Then they disappear off. 
So, a female Goomba will come in and found out someone fell from the sky. She 
examines Mario and then freaks out when he doesn't get up. Mario will be in a 
bed and one of the Star Spirits comes in to try to encourage him to wake up and 
tell you to meet him at the Shooting Star Summit, and then disappear again.

Now Mario will wake up in what seems like a rather uncomfortable bed (no 
blankets or pillows? Goombas must be on a cheap budget these days). You and 
Toad will have a little chat and you'll be free to get out here. Jump on the 
step and open the door. From here, head down until you find the path. Follow it 
and you'll find Goompapa next to the gate. Talk to him and he'll say he needs 
to fix the gate. Now open the door to get in the house. Goomba, the Goomba 
grandmother is here, but open the door in the other side of the room. Talk to 
Goompa (grandfather) and then go back in the house. Leave this house and go 
outside.

Goombario will tell you that dad fixed the gate so you're free to get out of 
here. Talk to Goompapa and he'll try to let you through, but Kammy comes and 
destroys the gate by putting a yellow block on it. Now we need to find a 
different way out. Goompapa is now pissed and you'll need the hammer from 
Goompa. Go back inside the house and go to where Goompa was working on the 
balcony.

Cool, Mario's floating in mid-air! Then he remembers what room he was in and 
then floats down to the ground. Now, hop off the ledge and head down south to 
find Goompa. Mario reminds him of the hammer, so we have to go look for it. 
Head left and take the path to the next room. This is where the hammer is. It 
is hidden behind a bush. To find it instantly, go to the Save Block. Head left 
from the Save Block to get to a light green bush. Examine it (press A) to find 
the hammer. If you want to, examine the rest of the bushes here for coins. The 
brick block next to the Save Block has coins you can get if you keep using the 
hammer on the block.

Smash the tree to the right of the brick block and an item comes out, which 
looks like a doll of Princess Peach. We'll need this later. Leave this area by 
heading east and Goompa gets attacked by a "bully". It is Jr. Troopa and you 
will fight him as your first mini boss.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
MINI BOSS: Jr. Troopa
HP: 5
Defense: 0
Attack: 2

This is just a "hello world" fight. All you can really do is use hammer or 
jump. Both do 1 HP. Now, he'll jump on you and do 1 HP of damage each time. 
After you hit him 4 times, he'll do his power up attack, which does 2 HP. Just 
attack him one more time and you'll win. You'll earn your first 20 star points.

Now, every 100 star points is a level up for you. You can increase your max HP 
or FP by 5, or BP by 3. HP (Hit Points) is the amount of damage you can take, 
FP (Flower Points) can be used to use special and powerful attacks, while BP 
(Badge Points) can let you increase the amount of Badges you wear. Try to 
upgrade all of these at a mixed up pace.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Jr. Troopa will still say he'll be back and that he means it. Continue east 
into the next area. Hit the "?" block with your hammer to get a coin. Smash the 
tree near the yellow block to get a Mushroom. Now hit the yellow block and then 
use the heart block to refill all your HP. Now jump up the ledges and bounce on 
the spring. Collect the Fire Flower at the top. Now head east into the next 
area.

This area introduces Goombas, ParaGoombas, and Spiked Goombas, and all three of 
these are weak enemies. They'll give out 2, 3 and 3 star points respectively 
(at this point of the game when Mario's level is rather low). Jump on Goombas 
to try and get first strikes, but use hammers on the Spiked ones or else you'll 
hurt yourself jumping on them. Jumping on a ParaGoomba will clip their wings so 
they will no longer be able to fly, thus turning into normal Goombas. In this 
area, keep jumping up the steps and you'll find another path leading up and to 
the left. Jump up these steps and head all the way left. Smash the tree for a 
coin and continue left until you find a Star Piece. Pick it up. These won't do 
anything now, but they'll be valuable for swapping badges. Now jump off the 
ledge and continue going all the way right, fighting the enemies until you get 
to the next area.

You'll be back in Goomba Village. Goompa will open the gate and you'll be free 
to go. If you got the Princess Peach doll, Goombario will ask to give it to his 
sister, Goombaria. Give it to her and she'll give you a kiss and a Star Piece. 
Now Goompa will come out with a badge and give it to you. If you're new to this 
game, he'll teach you how to equip and de-equip badges (go to Start, badges 
tab, select the badge and press A to equip/de-equip it).

Now, after some more talking, Goombario will join your team. Now two people can 
fight during battle! Hit the save block, rest in the Toad house, smash the tree 
for a Goomnut, smash the hammer, and be on your way.

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

The first thing you'll notice here is the sign. Examine it to read about the 
Goombas, then the one on the sign peels itself off to attack you. Continue 
heading right, mowing down the Goombas as you go. Hit the "?" blocks you see 
for coins. At the end of the path, head right into the next area. In here, head 
a little to the right to find a red "?" block. Hit it to get the "Close Call" 
badge. It requires 1BP and if you put it on, enemies may miss you when you're 
in "danger" (5 HP or lower). So, I don't see why not to put this badge on. To 
the right of a block is a sign with a Mushroom, so examine it to get the 
Mushroom.

Continue heading east, mowing down the Goombas as you go. Hit the heart block 
at the end of the path and then go into the next area. In this area, head a 
little right and at the spring, a red and a blue Goomba will stop you. Time for 
a mini boss fight.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
MINI BOSS: Red and Blue Goomba
Red Goomba: HP: 7, Attack: 1, Defense: 0
Blue Goomba: HP: 6, Attack 1, Defense: 0

This is a straightforward battle. Both can only do 1 HP of damage toward you. 
My suggestion is to aim for one of the Goombas first, so you don't have to deal 
with two attacks coming at you every turn. You can also use Power Jump to help 
speed up this battle and finish the Goomba Bros. off faster. After you finish 
off one Goomba, you may have to heal. Just keep attacking them with both Mario 
and Goombario and you'll win this fight easily. 
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After the fight, both Goombas will whine and tattle-tale you on the king. 
Before bouncing on the spring, go save using the save block to the right. Now 
bounce up to the higher ledge and continue right into the next area. The sign 
has a mushroom on it, but examining it will turn the Mushroom into a Goomba if 
you want a fight. All you need to do here is follow the path into the next 
area.

You'll see a cut-scene of Red and Blue Goomba crying to the Goomba King about 
you. In that little cardboard castle of his, King Goomba will come out and 
talk. Now you will have a boss fight.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
BOSS: King Goomba, Red Goomba, Blue Goomba
King Goomba: 10 HP, Attack: 1, Defense: 0
Red and Blue Goomba: 2 HP, Attack: 1, Defense: 0

Goombario suggests you take out the Goomba Bros. first. This is a good idea. 
But you can take both of them out immediately. See that tree? Attack it using 
your hammer and a nut will fall out of the tree, hitting the Goomba King, Red 
Goomba, and Blue Goomba for 3 HP each, thus knocking out the Goomba Bros. Now, 
if you have below 5 HP, it's highly recommended you heal, because the King can 
shake the ground and have a nut fall on you for 2 HP. Now, from here on out, 
just take down the Goomba King and you'll get his health down to 0.

After this fight, you're likely to get a level-up (assuming you've fought 
enough Goombas previously). Choose HP as your first upgrade (recommended by 
me).
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
After the fight, hit the tree with your hammer and a Star Piece will fall out, 
so collect it. Now go south from the castle and you'll fight two bushes. 
Examine the lighter one and a switch will come out. Jump on it and then the 
Goomba King will tell you not to hit a switch if you find one. Too late. His 
castle falls apart and he springs into outer space. Cross the bridge on the 
right side of the castle. Before going into the next area, head south and walk 
around the fence. Head left to find a brick block. Smash it with your hammer 
and a "?" block will appear. Hit it for a Super Shroom. Now, go back around the 
fence and head right into the area.

It appears Kammy was spying on you. Save and Continue and then we'll get a cut-
scene out of Peach's castle.

PEACH'S CASTLE 
Kammy will tell Bowser you beat the Goomba King and he'll ramble about how 
pathetic the King was. Now the Koopa Bros. come in and after talking to Bowser, 
they'll show Bowser their secret move off-screen. After, Bowser asks the Koopa 
Bros. who's guarding the Star Spirit at their Fortress, and then they'll say no 
one is. Bowser flips out on them and they run off.

BACK TO THE MAIN ADVENTURE
You're in the next area now. Head right down the steps and hit the "?" block at 
the bottom for a sleepy sheep. Before stepping into Toad Town, smash the tree 
to make a spring come out. Bounce on the spring to get on the roof of the 
building. Open the chest at the end for the Hammer Throw Badge. Now jump off 
the roof and continue into Toad Town.

----------
Toad Town
----------

A Toad will greet you upon stepping into the area. If you want to backtrack to 
Goomba Village, you'll find Chuck Quizmo there. He is a person who loves 
quizzes and each time you answer one of his questions correctly, you win a Star 
Piece. He won't be at Goomba Village all the time. His locations are completely 
random, so don't hesitate to try his quiz whenever you come across him. In Toad 
Town, head right to find a building with a Fire Flower on it. These are shops. 
In the shops, you can buy items, as well as store items to conserve room and 
get them back anytime you want.

Fright Jar (5 coins) 
Sleepy Sheep (10 coins) 
POW Block (5 coins) 
Fire Flower (10 coins)
Honey Syrup (10 coins) 
Mushroom (5 coins)

To the right of the shop is the fighting dojo, where you can practice battling 
(you don't get any star points for winning and dying will not cause a game 
over). But each time you defeat someone, you'll get a degree. You can't battle 
right now, as the Master is out. Just head right into the next area and you'll 
be at the center of the town. Smash the first tree you see for a Star Piece. 
You'll need to go into the house with the spinning roof, but you can't get in 
there right now. There is also a Toad Town newspaper here. The front side 
contains info about what's going on, while the back is just gossip written by 
other unknown people.

To your right is the Post Office and the Toad House, but you can't do much in 
the Post Office, except read letters that are written to your partners. Leave 
here and head up north through the gate. You'll be in the area where Princess 
Peach's castle used to stand tall here. Head right into the next area.

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

When you step into this area, head right over the bridge and take the lower 
path. In this area, enter the house. On the bottom floor, you'll find Meluvlee, 
who is a fortune teller and can tell you locations of badges (20 coins), Star 
Pieces, (5 coins), and Super Blocks (30 coins). The chest next to her is a 
"transfer chest" from here to Peach's castle. Whenever Peach puts a badge 
inside the chest, is gets transferred here. If you go through the door and head 
upstairs, you'll find a man named Merlow. This is where your Star Pieces come 
in handy. You can trade them for badges here:

Attack FX A (1 Star Piece) 
Pay-Off (1 Star Piece) 
Chill Out (3 Star Pieces)
Pretty Lucky (5 Star Pieces) 
Feeling Fine (5 Star Pieces) 
Happy Heart (8 Star Pieces)
Happy Flower (8 Star Pieces)
Peekaboo (10 Star Pieces) 
Zap Tap (10 Star Pieces) 
Heart Finder (12 Star Pieces) 
Flower Finder (12 Star Pieces)
HP Drain (15 Star Pieces) 
Money Money (20 Star Pieces) 
Flower Saver (25 Star Pieces) 
Flower Plus (25 Star Pieces)

Merlow holds crucial badges, like Chill Out and Feeling Fine. The one you 
should absolutely get is Peekaboo. Save your Star Pieces and when you get at 
least 10, come back and get it (it lets you see enemy HP without Tattle, great 
for developing strategies).

Now, leave this place once you're done. Go left into the previous area and this 
time, take the upper path. You'll see a set of steps, but before going on them, 
go up north and round the bend to find a Star Piece. Now go back and start 
jumping up the steps until you get to the top, where you'll meet seven 
extremely weak Star Spirits (which are illusions). After they finish chatting, 
the game asks if you want to save.

PEACH'S CASTLE
Inside the castle, Peach is worried of what is happening, and then Bowser and 
Kammy come in to just shove everything down her throat. Shortly, a star knocks 
on her window and Peach lets her in. The star is Twink. They'll start talking 
to each other and Peach will tell Twink to go find Mario, lending him a Lucky 
Star. Now Twink sets off to find you and the scene ends with Peach saying 
"Mario...Where are you..."

BACK TO THE MAIN ADVENTURE
You'll be at the base of the Shooting Star Summit. Head west and cross the 
bridge and Twink will bump into you. He'll lend you the Lucky Star, which 
allows you to do the Action Command in battle. Twink will also explain how it 
is used (for the Action Command to jump, hit A just before jumping on the enemy 
and for the hammer, hold left on the analog stick until the big star is 
lighted, and then release). You can also dodge with Action Command (hit A right 
before enemy strikes) to do one less HP.

After the lecture, a Magikoopa comes to fight. Just consider this a little 
scrimmage battle. The Magikoopa has 11HP and jumping on him will cause him to 
lose his broom. Watch out for his magic blast, because it does 3 HP (the sound 
effect is awesome though). Just practice the Action Command here and he'll be 
gone in no time.

Now head left from here to where Peach's castle was. Head south through the 
gate. As soon as you go through it, the Toad next to you will tell you Merlon 
was looking for you. Try to enter the house with the spinning roof and Merlon 
will tell you he's not available. Enter again and he'll come out to find you 
knocked out on the ground. He'll invite you in and after a long, long story, 
he'll tell you to go to the Koopa Bros. Fortress, which is east from here. Head 
east from the Toad House and you'll notice 4 oddly colored Toads blocking the 
way. Talk to tell and they'll tell you it's dangerous and they won't let you 
through. To solve this, go back to Merlon's house.

Now, don't pay him coins to talk to him, what you have you do is WALK AROUND 
THE TABLE AND TALK TO HIM. Now follow him back to where the Toads were and 
he'll reveal who the four rather suspicious looking Toads are. They're the 
Koopa Bros! They'll quickly storm off. Save your game with the save block near 
you, and then follow them and a new chapter will begin.

Oh yeah, the Toad Town Dojo is now open. I only recommend fighting the first 
two trainers at this part of the game. Here is an overview of the Toad Town 
Dojo. Skip this part if you don't want to go inside.

############################################################################### 
                              TOAD TOWN DOJO
###############################################################################

These will review the 5 bosses of the Dojo. You must fight them in this order, 
no matter how strong or weak you are. Each time you beat one, you get a degree 
card, and it upgrades upon each battle.

DOJO BATTLE #1: Chan
HP: 15
Attack: 2
Defense: 2
Chain is just a Buzzy Beetle with little strength. Like Koopa Troopas, a jump 
attack will flip him over and put his defense on 0. He will get up the next 
turn, but won't attack. Just flip him over with Mario and use your partner 
(preferably Goombario) to drain his HP. Or you can do it the other away around. 
And if you do find a way for him to attack, all he does his shell toss Mario 
for 2 HP. As long as you don't make any really bad mistakes, he won't touch 
you. Beating him will give you the first degree card.

DOJO BATTLE #2: Lee
HP: 20
Attack: 5
Defense: 0
Lee is a Duplighost. His default attack is that he can ram you for 5 HP. He can 
also transform into your partner and obtain his abilities. If you're fighting 
him and you're at a low level, bring 2 or 3 healing items. With you and your 
partner, you can do up to 4 HP a turn, barring any badges you use (which would 
increase the amount of damage, I'd hope). After a few turns, he may turn back 
to his own self and then attack you. Defeating Lee will give you the second 
degree card.
 
DOJO BATTLE #3: The Master I
HP: 50
Attack: 6
Defense: 0

His only attack is that he'll punch you for 6 HP. I can beat him after the 
first chapter most of the time. If you use Shrink Stomp, you can cut his 
attack in half, which will help greatly. But he isn't that hard. Just attack 
him with your best attacks every turn and heal when needed. Beating him will 
give you your third degree card. Only use Shrink Stomp if you want to beat him 
by the time you finish Chapter 1.

DOJO BATTLE #4: The Master II 
HP: 75
Attack: 8
Defense: 0

This time, the Dojo Master will punch you for 8 HP, and he'll also try to do a 
double attack on you. You can prevent the double attack by equipped the Zap Tap 
Badge. You'll probably need to heal more often here. Smooch and Star Storm also 
work good. Also, Goombario + Charge + Multibonk = automatic win.

Now you get your fourth degree card.

DOJO BATTLE #5: The Master III 
HP: 99
Attack: 10
Defense: 1

Now, if you want to win, you absolutely need Zap Tap here. He will do a triple 
attack for 19 HP, and he'll also punch you for 10 HP. When he tries to do the 
triple attack, the badge Zap Tap will hurt him for 1 HP and stop him from doing 
a triple attack. Just attack with your best attacks, use Smooch and Star Storm 
to help you out, and as always, Goombario + Charge + Multibonk = god. Beating 
him the 5th time around will give you the Diploma, proving you are stronger 
than the Master.

############################################################################### 
                             END TOAD TOWN DOJO
###############################################################################

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 
Chapter 1: Storming Koopa Bros. Fortress
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

Free to leave Toad Town, we can defeat the Koopa Bros. and rescue the first 
Star Spirit. We'll also be joining up with two new partners.

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

You'll find Koopas on this path. To damage them, jump on them to flip their 
shell over and then their defense goes to 0. Same thing with ParaKoopas. Double 
jumping a ParaKoopa will flip it on its shell.

Now, head right, fighting each enemy you pass. Hit the first "?" block for a 
coin and continue right. You'll get to a red "?" block. Hit it to get the Dizzy 
Attack Badge. It's not worth much, so I don't recommend putting it on. Head 
right and get the Fright Jar out of the last "?" block and then head right into 
the next area. Take out the Koopa and hit the "?" block for a POW Block. Then 
smash the tree to make a switch fall out. Hit the switch and a bridge will 
form. Cross the bridge and continue right until you come to a set of steps. 
Keep jumping up them (take out the Koopa), and at the top, head into the next 
area.

Upon walking into this area, you'll see a set of steps in front of you. Before 
going down them, notice the three blue striped poles behind you. There's a 
Sleepy Sheep behind the one on the right (you'll want this later). Another 
trick is if you want unlimited hearts, run around the left pole (the one that's 
looking at you), and it'll keep spitting out hearts. Head down these steps. At 
the bottom of the steps, you'll come across 3 bricks in the form of a triangle. 
Hit them in this order: left, right, top. A red "?" block will appear. Hit it 
for the Attack FX B Badge. It requires no BP, so put it on to add additional 
sound effects when you attack enemies. Continue right into Koopa Village.

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

Now, you've got the psycho ants-in-my-pants music playing when you walk in 
here. The front Koopa is explaining Fuzzies have stolen the Koopa shells, and 
it's up to us to save them. Then a Fuzzy bounces out of nowhere and strips him 
of his shell. Just whack the fuzzy with your hammer to give him his shell back. 
Notice the Fuzzies bouncing around here? If you somehow hit them, they go away 
and you get a coin in return. There are also two Koopa shells you can get in 
here. Jump on the brick block to get one for the Koopa and smash the tree to 
get the shell for the other one. Now head right into the next area, where there
are more Fuzzies causing trouble. A Fuzzy's got a shell in the dirt patch, but 
he's not easy to catch. The trick to getting to him is to slowly sneak up on 
him.

You can find the last shell on a checkerboard like grid. Push the blue block to
the middle square so it is directly beneath the brick block that has the shell.
Then jump on the block and jump to get the shell. Well, we've saved all of 
them, except...

Wow, that's quite a racket in the house with a green shelled roof. When you try
to open it, another Koopa, named Kooper, will try to come out and now a Fuzzy
has robbed his shell. Go into his house and the Fuzzy will get away through the
back door. Just keep following the shell until you get to an area with four
trees. Now we play the guessing game. Four Fuzzies will be bouncing around in
the trees; one has Kooper's shell. Now, hit the tree that has Kooper's shell. 
You must do this two more times, but it gets more difficult. After you hit the 
correct Fuzzy three times, you get the shell back.

Afterwards, Kooper will get his shell back and he'll ask if he can join the 
party. Say yes of course. Now you've got a new friend. Try to leave this place 
and then the four Fuzzies will want a battle. All of them have 3 HP. The 
easiest way to win is just use a Fire Flower on them to burn them into 
oblivion. Otherwise, you'll need to take them out one by one, but watch out. If
they attack you, they'll do 1 HP to you AND recover one HP. Once you deal with 
them, head left and cross the bridge. At the end of the bridge, head left and 
you'll see a few tree stumps, and one of them has a badge.

Jump on the highest stump and use Kooper's shell toss (C-Down) to snatch it. It
is a HP Plus Badge, which increases your HP by 5 when you wear it (taking it 
off loses the 5 HP). Go back into Kooper's House and then into Koopa Village. 
Remember that shell that was on a brick block above the checkerboard? It has 
been replaced by a Star Piece. Put the blue block under the middle one to get 
it.

Before leaving Koopa Village, there's one more thing we should do. To the right
of Kooper's House is Koopa Koot's house, an old Koopa who asks for favors. 
Let's do her first two favors right here. Her first favor is to grab the "Koopa
Legends" book from Kolorado's wife. Her house is to the left of Kooper's. Ask 
her for it and she'll give it to you. Bring it back to Koopa Koot for 1 (!!!) 
coin. Of course, she has better prizes. Her next favor is for a Sleepy Sheep. 
You remembered to get the one on Pleasant Path, didn't you? If not, go back and
get it. If so, just hand it to her right now and she'll give you 1 coin and a 
Silver Credit Card, which allows you to play games in the Toad Town playroom 
(I'll explain this later).

Now, let's leave Koopa Village. One last thing - if you saw Chuck Quizmo in 
Goomba Village, there's a good chance you'll see him here on your way out. 
Also, at the shop, pick up a Fire Flower. If you don't have a POW Block, get 
one here too (DON'T USE EITHER OF THESE). Now, here's the item list here:

Dizzy Dial (10 coins) 
POW Block (4 coins) 
Fire Flower (8 coins) 
Honey Syrup (8 coins) 
Volt Shroom (15 coins) 
Mushroom (4 coins)

Save before leaving and head back onto Pleasant Path.

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

Back on the Pleasant Path, jump back up all the steps. At the top, continue 
right and cross the bridge into the next area. You'll see a few coins on the 
ground. If you try to go near them, a Koopa ambushes you from the bush, so take 
him out at your leisure. Before jumping down the steps, go right towards the 
end of the ledge. You'll see a Thunderbolt on the brick block. Use Kooper's 
shell toss to knock out the block and then you can pick up the item, but watch 
out for the Spiked Goomba. Once you have the Thunderbolt, continue right. Read 
that cheesy sign that says "No entry allowed, Mario! Yours truly, the Koopa 
Bros."

Let's put an end to that. Use Kooper's shell toss to send him over the water to 
activate the switch across from you. This will form a bridge. You might want to 
switch to Goombario to fight the Parakoopas here. Now, after crossing the 
bridge, notice the gap in between the two brick blocks. Jump in the middle and 
a Fire Flower will come out of a hidden block. Now grab it and head right into 
the next area. Smash the first tree you see and a Star Piece will come out, so 
grab it. Fight all of the Koopas and Parakoopas here. If you've fought enough 
enemies, you should have a level up here. My recommendation is Flower Points, 
since you're probably sick of having to use FP recovering items every time you 
use a special move (like Power Jump or Power Shell).

Once you've eliminated all the enemies, head all the way right until you get to 
a Heart Block. Hit it and then head right into the next area. You'll be greeted 
by a big picture of the Koopa Bros. Fortress. Save, and then head towards the 
doors. A Koopa Bro will come outside and notice you're right there, and then 
jump back inside to warn the others. Let's go follow him inside.

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

As soon as you enter the fortress, walk around the bend to find a lone Koopa. 
This fight is mandatory, as he possess a key. Now, you'll also fight a Bob-omb. 
These are trick to handle. If you damage them, they will get angry and will 
explode on them the next turn. To prevent this from happening, use Kooper's 
shell toss or the hammer to destroy them before they explode (jumping on them 
while they're lighted up will damage you). After the fight is over, pick up the 
key and unlock the door. Now go through it.

In this room, take out both Bob-ombs and open the door at the other side of 
this room. In here, you'll find a Koopa Bros. locking up a key, and then he'll 
bolt off once he sees you. Continue going right. Halfway across the room, 
you'll find a Koopa trapped in a room with a badge. Or is he? He'll come out 
from the right side. Defeat him. Now go where the Koopa came out of the wall 
from (go up until you bump into a wall). Hold left and you'll slip it. Pick up 
the Power Bounce badge. It allows you to keep jumping on an enemy until you 
miss an action command, which is pretty useful.

Now, slip through the right wall again and continue right, where you'll find 
another key locked up. Take out the last Koopa and go through the door. In this 
room, head right and you'll find a Koopa. This is a mandatory battle, but watch 
out. There are also three Bob-ombs in this fight, so take out Kooper. After you 
win the battle, a blue "!" switch falls to this floor. Hit it and the staircase 
will lower to your right, so go down the stairs.

At the bottom of the stairs, you'll find a door to your right. Don't go in it, 
because you really can't do much in that room. Heal with whatever items you 
have and head left. When you find an opening, go through it. In this room, both 
openings will bounce up, so there's no escape. To get out of this room, you 
must battle all Koopas in here. After you've defeated all three, both openings 
will lower to the ground. Take the one on the left. In this room, head all the 
way left to the other side of the room, jumping over the fires. At the end of 
the room, pick up the key. Now, here's a trick with the rotating fires. If you 
keep jumping over them, they'll go faster and faster, and then explode into 
coins.

Now, leave this room and backtrack to the staircase. When you get back to the 
staircase, head up it and then go right. You'll find a locked door, so use the 
key to unlock it. After opening the door, you'll be greeted by the scene of one 
of the Koopa Bros. building a trap for you. Once you do enter this room, go up 
the rotating and steep slope. At the top, you'll find a door and the "?" block 
the Koopa Bros. was building. Hit the "?" block and the floor beneath you will 
open, making you fall into the prison. The Koopa Bros. who built the trap will 
come back in and mock you.

Looks like you and a few bob-ombs are trapped in this prison, including 
Bombette. Hey look, a Heart Block! Now, talk to the pink Bob-Omb, Bombette. 
After talking, she'll ask if she can join the party. As always, say yes. Then 
she'll walk up to a cracked wall and tell you she can blow it up. Using C-Down, 
use her to block up the wall and escape out of prison. When you escape the 
prison, head right the bend and a Koopa will come in and see what the noise is 
all about. You'll need to fight him and two Bob-ombs. Don't worry, Bombette's 
Bomb attack will not hurt her or Mario when attacking a lighted Bob-omb,. After 
the fight, go left and use the door to get out of this room.

You'll be next to the staircase again. Head up the staircase. At the top, go 
left and enter the door. In this room, use Bombette to blow up the cracked wall 
and then get the Fortress Key. Now go back through the door. In here, open the 
door at the other side of the room. Instead of going up the slope, head down 
and you'll find a set of double doors. Open them and you'll be outside. This is 
the most random Save Block you'll find in the game if you ask me. Now go back 
inside and head right, where you'll find a cracked wall. Use Bombette to blow 
it up and go through the opening and you'll be back outside.

Open the chest to get the Refund badge. Whenever you use an item in battle, 
you'll earn a few coins. It's a pretty fun badge to use. Go back inside. Back 
in here, go all the way up to the steep slope until you get to the top. At the 
top, open the door to your left. In this room, head left and open the locked 
door at the other side of this room. Before doing anything in this room, switch 
to Kooper. Head down the stairs and use Kooper's shell toss to hit the switch. 
This will cause the platforms to slide out and the walls to cave you in. Cross 
both gray stoned platforms until you get to the next barrier. Use shell toss to 
hit the switch, closing the stone platforms and causing the barriers to 
retreat. Do the same exact thing for the next "!" switch and then you'll come 
across a staircase.

Jump up the staircase and open the door. In here, go down and left and you'll 
find a blue "!" switch. Take out the Koopa and hit the switch. This will cause 
a staircase to lower. Go down the staircase and switch to Bombette. Use her to 
blow up the cracked wall. Go through the opening and get the key. Now leave 
this room, head back up the stairs, and then use the key to open the locked 
door. In this room, follow the path to a "!" switch and hit it. This will make 
the staircase in the water rise up to the level you are at, also waking up both 
of the Koopas. Defeat both of them and then jump up the stairs.

At the top of the stairs, go up the steep and rotating slope. You'll come 
across a door, but ignore it for now. Just keep on heading up the slope. At the 
top, take out the Bob-omb and pick up the Smash Charge badge. It powers up 
Mario's hammer by two points each time it is used. Now go back down the slope 
and open the door, and you'll be back outside again. Head down the stairs and 
all four Koopa Bros. will come out and use the cannons to attack you. Before 
going at them, go down the first staircase you see. Head down the stairs and 
blow up the rock with Bombette. Now hit the "?" block for Maple Syrup. Go back 
up the stairs.

Like this nice remix of the airship music from Super Mario Bros. 3? Head all 
the way right until you get to the cannons, dodging all of the Bullet Bills 
that are coming at you (don't try to fight them, they're pretty useless). Once 
you get to the cannons, don't fight them. GO down the stairs and use the Heart 
Block. Save while you're at it too.

Before fighting the cannons, here's a neat little trick. Get in front of one of 
the cannons (make sure it doesn't fire and don't get close enough to start a 
fight). Light up Bombette and she'll get a first strike on one of the cannons, 
automatically knocking it out.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
MINI BOSS: Bill Blasters
HP: 4
Attack: 0
Defense: 1

Like I said, using Bombette for a first strike will take out one of the Bill 
Blasters. If you use her bomb attack at 100%, it knocks out a cannon. Also, its 
defense is one, so jumping on it (unless you have power jump) is useless. Use a 
hammer, along with Bombette or Kooper to do damage. Now, they can't directly 
attack you, but every other turn, they'll release a Bullet Bill. Just double 
jump on them to knock them out, but if you don't, they'll annoy you for 2 HP of 
damage. But if you want extra star points, feel free to take them out.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
 
After the fight, take all the coins and go save. Also, leave Bombette as your 
partner and open the double doors.

Now, you'll be in an empty room with the Koopa Bros. They'll be trying to sort 
something out and will come after you with a mechanical Bowser. They try to 
tell you it's real, but don't even fall for it. You must knock this out before 
fighting the Koopa Bros. First off, this thing's a wimp. 10 HP, a defense and 
attack of 1. Just hammer and bomb every turn and it'll be gone in 2 turns at 
best (assuming both Bomb attacks are 100%). Now, to face the Teenage Mutant 
Ninja Turtles!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BOSS: Koopa Bros.
HP: 5 each
Defense: 1 
Attack: 1

This is a great Super Mario Bros. 3 battle theme music remix.

If your partner finished off Bowser last, they will strike first with their 
spinning attack. The amount of damage they do corresponds to how many Koopa 
Bros. are attacking (in this case, it's 4 HP). If you get rid of a Koopa 
Brother, then it's 3 HP, and so on. Since they're always stacked in a pile, 
you'll need to hit them twice to knock them over. If you hit them once while 
they're stacked up, they'll start shaking but they'll hold together, and they 
will balance themselves to attack you (unless you tip them over completely). 
Use a hammer and body slam to send them on their backs (jumping is useless). 
Now, they will remain on the ground for one turn, and then get back up, but 
they won't stack up on each other for another turn. Each one has 5 HP, so you 
can finish them one by one. And their defense goes to 0 when on their back. If 
they get back up, just jump on one of them to flip them over. Now, just take 
them out one bye one and you'll win easily.

There's another trick if you want to finish them off quickly. This requires two 
Fire Flowers or a Fire Flower and POW Block. When it's Mario's turn (and all of 
them are on their back, use one of the two items (the POW Block damages all of
them for 2 HP, and 3 HP of damage for the Fire Flower). Now, you can finish one
of them off with your partner. If it's been over a turn, they'll get up (but 
won't pile on each other). After, you can use either a POW Block/Fire Flower 
(depending on what you used earlier) and you'll win with flying colors.

After the fight, a card will come down with a Star Spirit. Run into it and 
he'll be rescued. Congratulations! You got your first Star Spirit! His name is 
Eldstar by the way.

PRINCESS PEACH'S CASTLE
Save and Continue and then we'll get a cut scene at Peach's castle. After Peach
and Twink talk, you'll be in control of her. If you try to leave the room, the 
guard will throw you back in. There's gotta be another way out, right? Examine 
the picture to the right of the fireplace and a switch will appear. Tap it and 
the fire will die down, showing you a secret passage. Enter the passage and 
you'll be in a dark hall. Now head left and hit the switch on the ledge. The 
floor you're on will rotate into another room. The door in here is locked, so 
we can't get out. I know! Let's read that diary! 

Hm, this is awesome. Someone captured the star spirits, captured Peach, and 
ranting about how Mario defeated the Koopa Bros. It also states that rescuing 
the next Star Spirit at Dry Dry Ruins will be an impossible feat for Mario. 
Great diary, but it's Bowser's! Then he comes in and finds you. I love when the
guards come in, when Bowser takes it out on them thinking they let her sneak 
out of her room:

Bowser: You're the worst guards ever! Take Princess Peach back to her room 
immediately!
Guards: Yes sir!

Twink will hide and the guards take her away.

BACK TO THE MAIN ADVENTURE
You will meet up with Eldstar outside the Koopa Bros. fortress. He will power 
you up by giving you star power, which allows you to use abilities from the 
star spirits. He'll teach you about how it works.

Eldstar's ability, Refresh, gives you 5 HP and 5 FP, but uses up one full meter 
of star energy. But the star energy recovers little by little each turn. If you 
want to speed up the recovery, use Focus to boost up your star energy. Each 
time you rescue a Star Spirit, you earn another meter of star energy, meaning 
you can have 7 units of star energy. To use the Star Power, select "Star 
Spirits" when battling and pick which power you want to use.

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

After the lecture, it's time to head all the way back to Toad Town. Make sure 
Bombette is still out. From the Koopa Bros. Fortress, head left into the next 
area. After the Heart Block, you'll see a cracked wall. Blow it up with 
Bombette and you'll reveal a warp pipe. Enter the pipe (jump on it and press 
Down on the analog stick). You'll be taken to a higher ledge. Head right and 
open the chest for a FP Plus. Now go back to the pipe. It's too high for you to 
jump onto, but you'll see an area on the ledge not guarded by a fence. Fall 
through here and you'll be back on the ground near the pipe.

Switch to Kooper and keep heading west on your way to Toad Town. When you get 
to the area with the three blue poles (one that had the unlimited Hearts), head 
left into the next area (this is to make sure you don't leave to Toad Town 
yet). Now back in this area, head down the steps. At the bottom, you'll see a 
set of steps leading to a different path. Take this path and you'll find a dead 
end. But across from you is a platform with a Star Piece. Use Kooper's shell 
toss to snatch it. Now get back on the main path and continue west until you 
get to Toad Town. You're just ready to go back in until Jr. Troopa comes out 
hiding from a bush, saying that he's back. He'll try to charge at you, but will 
end up falling in the water and climbing back up. He'll then ask you if you 
remember his name, and if you don't he gets a little pissed and then fights you 
(even if you say yes, you gotta fight him).

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
MINI BOSS: Jr Troopa II
HP: 15
Defense: 1
Attack: 2

Jr. Troopa will show off his new ability by being a wuss and hiding in his 
shell, increasing his defense by 1. His attack power has also increased since 
our last meeting, but don't let that bug you. If Bombette is your partner, this 
battle is a breeze. Use your hammer for 1 HP damage and use Bomb for 4 HP. This 
adds up to 5 HP, 1/3 of his health. If you repeat this twice, he'll be gone in 
no time. Otherwise, use non-jumping attacks until you finally take him town 
(body slam/shell toss/hammer).
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Now, after the fight, just head left back into Toad Town.

----------
Toad Town
----------

Upon stepping into Toad Town, you'll talk to Twink and he'll tell you the next 
Star Spirit is in Dry Dry Ruins. Now go rest at the Toad House. If you have 10 
Star Pieces on you, go get Peekaboo from Merlow. From the Toad House, head 
south and you'll be interrupted by a little kid, who tells you his dad Rowf 
opened up a badge shop and will have you check it out. There are 4 badges up 
for sale, but you can only see three on display (it's random every time). Right 
now, there are two badges highly worth noting. I need you to get "D-Down Pound" 
for 75 coins. It's a badge that negates an enemy defense (let's say you use a 
hammer on an enemy with a defense of 1, so you'd do 1 HP. If you use D-Down 
Pound, it treats it if like the enemy has a defense of 0, so you'd do 2 HP. 
Also get Speedy Spin if you like so you can spin and move faster (50 coins). 
Also, here is a list of the badges that can be purchased at this shop: 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
                              --ROWF'S BADGE SHOP--

Mega Quake (200 coins)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From the badge shop, head down south into the next area. The house to your left 
is Tayce T. She can make you recipes if you give her certain items. For 
example, giving her a Mushroom would give you a "Fried Shroom". But not all 
items work, and sometimes you'll have "Mistakes". For the recipes you can look 
at, check out the Recipes section.

*******************************************************************************
SIDE QUEST 
 
This next part is completely optional. If you want to skip it, just meet me at 
"Toad Town" From Tayce T's house, head south and you'll find two paths to your 
left. Take the lower path and you'll come across a warp pipe. Enter it and 
you'll be in Toad Town Tunnels.

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

These are like the sewers of the Mushroom Kingdom. With only normal boots and a 
normal hammer, there's nothing much you can do here. But go right across the 
pipes and save your game. Smash the yellow block and head into the next area. 
In this room, you'll find a blue Goomba called a "Gloomba". They just have more 
HP than a Goomba (seven) and an attack of two. At your level, they give out 
three or four star points each! Head right to the other side of the room. 
Notice the brick blocks in the back of the room. There is a gap between two of 
them. Jump in between this gap and you'll find a hidden block with a Super 
Shroom. Pick it up and go into the next room. BEFORE CROSSING THE PIPES, SWITCH 
TO GOOMBARIO Cross the pipes and a Blooper will appear.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
MINI BOSS: Blooper
HP: 30
Attack: 3 
Defense: 0

This should be a straightforward battle. Blooper has two attacks. One is that 
he'll spin on your head for 3 HP. Another one is that he'll squirt ink at you 
for 3 HP. You'll need to heal often, since you probably don't have a lot of HP 
at this point of the game. Use your best attacks if you've got the badges on, 
otherwise, just keep having you and Goombario jump on him for 4 HP a turn, 
healing when needed. If you have Power Jump or Power Bounce on, go for it.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After the fight, go right and open the chest for a Shrink Stomp Badge. This 
badge has a chance of shrinking the enemy when you hit them, thus decreasing 
their attack. From here, backtrack all the way to the pipe you used to enter 
the Toad Town Tunnels and you'll be back in Toad Town.
*******************************************************************************

----------
Toad Town
----------

From Tayce T's house, head all the way down south until you find a path into 
the next area. Before taking the path, notice the flower on the grass to your 
right. Uproot it using A and a Bub-ulb will pop out. He'll give you a Flower 
Seed you can plant in the Toad Town garden. Planting four seeds will open the 
door to Flower Fields, but they're scattered all over the game. The Toad Town 
garden is to the east of Rowf's badge shop. Now head south into the next area.

In this area, get on the grass to your left and smash the tree and a pipe will 
come out. This pipe leads to the Toad Town Playroom, where you can play 2 games 
and gamble your coins.

******************* 
TOAD TOWN PLAYROOM
*******************

If you have either a silver or a gold credit from doing Koopa Koot favors, show 
the Toad behind the counter. He'll open up the Jump Attack game if you have the 
silver credit or the Smash Attack game if you have the gold credit. If you have 
the gold credit but never unlocked the Jump Attack Game, don't worry, it'll 
also open up the Jump Attack Game.

+++++++++++++++++
JUMP ATTACK GAME
+++++++++++++++++

You need the silver credit to get here and this is the warp pipe on the left.

The point of the game is to smash 5, 7, or 9 brick blocks without finding 
Bowser in one of them. You can find these in the brick blocks that appear in 
the game.

Coin - this gives you one coin

5 coins - this gives you five coins

X5 coins - this multiplies your coin total by 5

Bowser - if you get this, game over. Any coins you have accumulated will be 
lost.

It costs 10 coins to play here.

Note that winning on 9 block smash doubles your coin total.

++++++++++++++++++
SMASH ATTACK GAME
++++++++++++++++++ 
 
You need the gold credit to get here and this is the warp pipe on the right.

The point of this game is to smash the blocks with your hammer to find all ten 
Peach panels before you run out of time. You have 30 seconds to find all of 
them. Some boxes may not contain anything. Sometimes you'll find a Fuzzy in a 
box, and you'll need to tap A and get the meter to 100% to get rid of it. Other 
ones may contain bob-ombs, which will stun you for a few seconds. Also some 
boxes may not have anything.

From time to time, the panels will jump out of the boxes, so you'll know which 
ones to hit and which ones not to. But not all panels jump out of their boxes, 
so you'll need to be lucky when smashing some others. If you find all ten Peach 
tiles within 30 seconds, the amount of coins you win is 10 times the amount of 
time on the clock left (so if you won the game with 4.3 seconds left, you'd win 
43 coins).

From the pipe, continue heading down south and you'll find a railroad. 
Unfortunately, there is a rock blocking the way. Have Bombette blow it up and 
then the railway will be in service. Take the train to Mt. Rugged, where the 
next chapter begins.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
Chapter 2: The Mystery of Dry Dry Ruins
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

Now, we'll get another partner on the team and get even a hammer upgrade in 
this chapter, as we continue our mission to rescue the star spirits.

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

Once you depart here, save your game with the save block on the right. Also, 
two the left of the save block are four bushes. Examine the top one for an Egg, 
which recovers 5 HP. Now head up north and jump up all the steps. You'll find a 
heart block at the top. Go right and you'll collide with Parakarry, who seems 
to be looking for three lost letters, and it's up to you to help him out. If 
you get all three letters, he'll join the party. Now head right into the next 
area.

You'll find the most annoying enemies here called Clefts. They have 2 HP, but a 
defense of 2 as well. Like I said, this is why you need D-Down Pound. 
Bombette's Bomb is the only thing other than that which can damage him too. 
There are also Monty Moles that pop out of the ground, but they're not much of 
a problem. Now head right and jump up the steps you'll find. At the top, head 
right and you'll find two paths. One leads right and the other is a staircase 
going down. Go down the staircase first. Hit the "?" block for a Sleepy Sheep 
and smash the yellow block on the left. If you go left, you'll find Whacka, who 
will give you the excellent Whacka's Bump for giving you him a concussion (it 
restores 25HP AND 25FP). You can get as many as you want, but only once per 
visit.

Now go back up the stairs and continue heading right. Save and then continue 
right. You'll come to an open area luring with Monty Moles. Battle them if you 
want, but continue right by going up the steps. At the top, continue right and 
jump up the ledges. You'll see a platform to your left that has a letter. Use 
Kooper's shell toss to snatch it (a letter to Merlon). Now jump up to the next 
platform and head right into the next area.

This is where you'll start finding Clefts. I forgot to mention they disguise 
themselves as rocks. When you step into the area, head right and jump onto the 
higher ground. Now go up the slope to your right. At the top, head left and 
you'll go into a cave like structure. See the two "windows" in front of you? 
Fall through the left window and you'll land on a platform with a Star Piece. 
Pick up the Star Piece and then go back up the slopes and head into the cave 
again. From here, just head left until you get into the next area. There's 
nothing much on this path. Just head left and press A to open the gate. Go down 
the slide and you'll be taken to a completely different area. Battle the Cleft 
if you want and then head left into the next area.

Head left down the stairs and you'll find a Cleft and a "?" block. Get the 
Mushroom from the "?" block and go up the next set of stairs. Continue all the 
way left until you get to a gap. The gap is too big for you to cross, but once 
you get Parakarry, come back here to have him fly you over the gap to get the 
Star Piece. Next to the gap is a spring, but don't bounce up it yet. Instead, 
go inside the little cave to the right. You can see a little opening to the 
left inside the cave. Go in it and go up the slope. Open the chest at the top 
for the Damage Dodge badge. Now go back down the slope and bounce on the 
spring.

Smash the "?" block on the left for a coin if you want, and then head right. 
You'll find a gate, but if you want Honey Syrup, go down the path to the right 
and smash the "?" block for it. Now enter the gate and the slope will take you 
to another platform. Head right and you'll pick up your second letter (this one 
is for Kolorado, who you'll find shortly). Drop down to the ledge below you and 
head right. Take the gate and slide down the slope. You'll be back in the Monty 
Mole hellhole. Go all the way right into the next area. Jump up the slope 
again. Back up here, go right instead of left and head into the next area. The 
gap is too wide for you to jump, so fall to the pit below. Take out the cleft 
and grab the third and final letter (for Goompapa; this letter starts a long 
chain letter series). With the final letter, bounce up the spring and backtrack 
all the way to where you find Parakarry (just keep on heading left).

Once you get back to Parakarry, deliver him the three letters and he'll join 
the party. Now, there are three things we can do now that we got Parakarry.

QUAKE HAMMER BADGE - Go to where you found your first letter that you snatched 
with Kooper. To the left of the original platform with the letter has a badge 
on it. Have Parakarry fly you over both gaps to pick up the Quake Hammer Badge.

MAGICAL SEED #2 - From the Quake Hammer Badge, head right into the next area. 
In here, jump up onto the higher ledge. Instead of going up the slope, take the 
path to the right. Have Parakarry fly you over the gap. Uproot the flower and 
you'll find a Bub-ulb. Talk to him for the Magical Seed.

STAR PIECE - Like I said earlier, go back to where you used the spring to take 
you to the second letter. Have Parakarry fly you over the gap to pick up the 
scattered coins and the Star Piece.

Once you have gotten all of those, go to where you found the third letter. Have 
Parakarry fly you over the gap. Once you cross the bridge, that bird in the 
background will halt you and ask you for your name. If you say "Mario" or 
"Princess Peach", you'll battle him. Saying "Luigi" skips the battle for good. 
But battle and sharpen up your skills.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
MINI BOSS: Buzzar
HP: 40
Attack: 3
Defense: 0

Buzzar has a few annoying attacks, but as long as you have a healing item or 
two, you should be fine. One of his attacks includes a wind attack, which 
attacks both you and your partner. The faster you tap A, the less damage you 
take (from 3 to 1 HP). The damage you take also resembles how many turns your 
partner will be knocked out for. Another attack is that he'll grab you with his 
claws. Tapping A will raise the meter and if the "Ok" tab falls in the lighted 
up part of the meter, you take no damage, otherwise you'll be damaged for 4 HP. 
Another attack includes biting you for 3 HP. He'll also throw needles at you 
for 2 HP.

Now, just keep jumping on him with your best jumping attacks. You'll also need 
Goombario or Parakarry. Parakarry's Shell Shot will work wonders here, as it 
does 5 HP when you hit him. Eventually, you'll bring him down. Just heal 
whenever you need to and mow him down with your best attacks.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After the fight (or if you choose not to fight, take the slope at the end of 
the path. Follow the path to the next area. In this area, head right down the 
steps and you'll find a Heart Block and a Save Block. Save and then head east 
into Dry Dry Desert.

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

The Dry Dry Desert is one of my favorite places in the games, because you can 
get a few badges, neat items, and even Star Pieces while getting plenty of Star 
Points. Dry Dry Desert is arranged in a 7 x 7 area. Upon entering this area, 
head right to the tent. Talk to Kolorado (with Parakarry out) and give the 
letter to him. He'll give you a Star Piece in return. Now head north into the 
next area. This area introduces Bandits. When they attack you, they steal 10 
coins from you. Attacking them back gives you the coins back, but if you don't 
attack them for a turn, they run off (if they're holding money). If you dodge 
their attack, they won't steal money. In this area, you'll also see a "?" block 
that's already been hit. Smash this block and a "?" block will appear, 
containing a Mushroom. Smash this block 10 times for a "?" block with a Super 
Shroom, and 100 times for a block with an Ultra Shroom.

After you get the three Mushrooms, head up north into the next area. This area 
seems to be empty, with the exception of a few rocks. But go towards the east 
exit. Jump on the rock next to the east exit. Now jump when you're on the rock 
and you'll find a hidden block with a Thunder Rage, an item that damages all 
enemies on screen for 5 HP. Now backtrack to where you met Kolorado.

Back in this area, take the southern exit. In this area, head down and you'll 
find a brick block. Keep jumping at it for coins. Battle the Bandits if you 
want, and then take the southern exit. There's absolutely nothing here. Just 
take the southern exit. You'll be in the extreme SW corner of the desert. There 
are Pokeys here. They got 4 HP and jumping on them will hurt you, so you'll 
need anything but Goombario and jumpin. Take the east exit once you're done. 
There's nothing in here, but wait. What's with that rock in the middle of the 
area. If you jump on the rock and jump, a hidden block comes out, containing 
the Attack FX C Badge. It requires no BP, so equip it for more SX when 
battling. When you're done in this area, take the north exit.

There is a Bandit and a Pokey here, but nothing else. Battle them if you want 
and then take the east. This area has 3 brick blocks, but the northernmost one 
has coins in it. Grab the coins and then take the east exit. You've got cacti 
and Pokeys here. Battle them if you want and take the east exit. This are has 
interesting blue cacti AND a whirlwind. If you walk into the whirlwind, you'll 
land next to a Spin Attack Badge. Pick it up and then jump off the rock. Take 
the north exit.

You'll be back on the main path. Ignore/fight the Bandit and take the west 
exit. You'll find a Nomadimouse here. Remember where he is, as you'll have a 
letter for him later. Take the north exit. You'll see an interesting triangle 
of trees here. Jump in the middle of the trees and a block will appear with the 
Runaway Pay Badge. Take it and then use the south exit again. Back on the path, 
keep heading east until you get to an area with plenty of trees. Dry Dry 
Outpost is on the east exit, but we're not done in the desert. Smash the tree 
right next to the east exit for a Letter (not the one next to the sign). This 
is for Mort T. in Koopa Village (the Toad in the Toad House). Take the south 
exit.

In the middle of this area is a "?" block. Smashing it gives you a coin, but if 
you jump on it and jump, you'll find a hidden Life Shroom, so grab it. Now, 
take the south exit. Look, an oasis! Smashing the tree on the right gives you a 
Lime, and the left tree gives you a Lemon. There's also a Super Block, which 
can upgrade one of your partners to "Super" rank. I recommend Bombette or 
Kooper with this one. Hit the Heart Block too. Now go up north two areas, and 
then east into Dry Dry Outpost.

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

Save your game here and then head right to the Item Shop. A mouse will be 
running out of the Item Shop, so follow him by heading right into the next 
area. If you head right, you'll find the mouse bolting back to the item shop, 
so go back there. Here's the item list here:

Thunder Bolt (5 coins) 
Dusty Hammer (2 coins) 
Honey Syrup (5 coins)
Dried Shroom (2 coins) 
Dried Pasta (3 coins) 
Mushroom (3 coins)

Now, by the items in this order: Dried Shroom, Dusty Hammer. Then the mouse 
will talk to you about a secret. Before leaving the item shop, by the items in 
this order:

Dusty Hammer, Dried Pasta, Dusty Hammer, Dried Shroom

Doing this will give you a Red Jar. What is this for? It's Koopa Koot's last 
favor on her list (after Chapter 6), but let's buy the Jar and get it over with 
now. Now leave the Item Shop. Back in here, head east into the next area. Go 
all the way right until you get to a blue house. Open the door and when you're 
inside, go right. Now jump up the stack of blocks to get on the roof. On the 
roof, head left and you'll find a Letter behind a vase. This is for a 
Nomadimouse, so we'll give it to him on our next destination. Jump over the gap 
to the left and open the door. Talk to the mouse inside named Moustafa. He'll 
give you a Pulse Stone. While out on the deserts, it'll blink faster and faster 
when you get closer to the ruins. Leave this place and then fall to the ground. 
Now go left into the first area, save your game, and head back into the Desert.

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

Ok, no fooling around this time. With Parakarry out, keep heading west until 
you find the Nomadimouse. Give him the letter for a Star Piece. After, take the 
north exit. Keep heading north until you get to an area with no north exit 
(your pulse should be beating faster and faster). When you finally get to this 
area, take the west exit. In this area, battle the Pokeys if you wish and take 
the west exit. In here, go to the center of the area and put the Pulse Stone on 
the rock. This will cause an earthquake and the Dry Dry Ruins temple will 
appear. Use the Heart Block to the left and enter it.

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

Some voice will come in saying an event will befall you if you don't leave. The 
hell with him. Save your game and continue to the next area. In the next area, 
you'll find 3 coffins. Each one has a Pokey Mummy in it. But this time, they 
are poisonous if they hit you, so it's essential to dodge. Behind the middle 
coffin is the Spike Shield badge, which allows you to jump on enemies without 
taking damage. Once you defeat all 3 Pokey Mummies, go downstairs and through 
the opening. In this room, pick up the ruins key and go back through the 
opening to your left. Back in here, go up the stairs and open the locked door. 
Press the switch and all of the sand will drain into the room below, allowing 
you to access an opening.

Go back to the room below you where you got the Ruins Key. Back in here, go 
through the opening on the right side of the room. That strange voice will tell 
you to go away again. Well screw him, we've got a Star Spirit to save. Jump up 
the stairs and take out Parakarry. Fight the Bony Beetle (they're like Koopas, 
but they'll get up immediately the next turn after being flipped). Have 
Parakarry fly you over the gap and then use Bombette to blow up the cracked 
wall. Jump on the switch in here and the sand will drain to the room below, 
allowing you to get the key in that room. Also, a Star Piece will be visible 
after draining the sand, so pick it up and then leave the room. Now drop down 
to the floor below you and go through the opening to your right.

Pick up the Ruins Key in this room and then leave. Back in here, head left and 
go down the stairs. Fight the Bony Beetle at the bottom and then head left. Use 
the key to unlock the door and then go through the opening. Now, before doing 
anything, equip the Hammer Throw Badge, because you'll need it. Now go to the 
other end of the room. Hit the "?" block and the door will close, opening three 
coffins with Pokey Mummies. You need to defeat all 3 to escape from here. The 
Pokey Mummies that come from the middle and right coffins have will have 
Swoopers when they battle you. A Swooper is a bat that clings onto the ceiling, 
so you cannot hit them by jump/hammer. You can use an attacking item or Hammer 
Throw (Shell Shot works too). After you've defeated all 3, a key will appear. 
Use the key to unlock the door next to you and then go through the opening.

In this room, let Parakarry fly you over the gap and when you're on the 
platform, go through the opening. Then that voice comes back saying "C'mon, 
don't go in that room!" Now, in this puzzle, the switches you hit will flip the 
stairs of their corresponding colors. SO go up the green stairs to your left 
and hit the green switch at the top. The green staircase to your right will 
flip the opposite way, allowing you to climb it. Head up the stairs and press 
the green switch at the top. The green staircases will flip again, so use the 
staircase next to you to get onto the platform to your left. On here, head down 
the pink staircase to your left and hit the pink switch at the bottom. After 
both pink staircases flip, go down the staircase to your right to get down to 
the ground. Jump up the green staircase and there will be a pink staircase to 
your left. Go up it. At the top, go down the staircase slowly. At the bottom of 
the staircase, hold up so you'll be facing the wall.

Now hold left and you'll fall onto a small ledge beneath you. On here, hold 
left until you hit a wall. Now hold down until you bump into another wall. From 
here, go left and you'll go through a fake wall. Open the chest for the Slow Go 
badge. This makes Mario unable to run. It may sound pointless, but it'll be 
very useful come next chapter. Now leave the room and then fall into the pit 
below you. Down here, open the big chest and you'll get the Super Hammer! Yay! 
Now your Hammer will be powered up and you'll be able to destroy stone blocks 
like the one to your right. Smash it and then go through the opening. Back in 
here, go all the way right and go through the opening at the other side of the 
room. Back in here, have Parakarry fly you over the gap and then once you're on 
the other side, go through the opening to your right. Now, go up the pink 
stairs in this room and hit the pink switch at the top. The staircase will 
flip, so climb it. At the top, smash the stone block and pick up the Artifact. 
You'll do nothing with it now, but you'll need it if you want another Star 
Piece later. Now go back down the stairs and go back through the opening to 
your left again.

This time, go down the stairs. At the bottom, take out the Bony Beetle and then 
have Bombette blow up the cracked wall on the left. Once it's blown up, go 
through the opening. In this room, fall down the gap to your left. Down here, 
use the Super Block to either upgrade Bombette or Kooper. Speaking of Bombette, 
let her blow up the wall on the left and then go through. In here, smash the 
stone blocks and you'll have to battle two Stone Chomps. They've got 4 HP but a 
defense of 1, so regular jumping is useless. Hammer/Bomb/Power Bomb will get 
rid of them quickly. Now, once they're finished, head up the stairs and pick up 
the Diamond Stone at the top. Once you have it, leave the room. Back in here, 
go through the opening to your right. Go all the way right in this hallway, 
battling the Bony Beetles and Swoopers. When you get to the opening on the 
right side of the room, go through it.

In this room, smash the stone block and it will reveal a switch. Hit the switch 
and a staircase will be formed, giving you access to the ruins key. Pick it up 
and then leave this room. Now go through the opening on the left side of the 
room in this hallway. Back in here, use the spring to bounce to the platform 
above you. When you're back on the platform, go through the opening to your 
right. Back in here, go up the stairs to your right. At the top, go through the 
opening to your right. In this room, go through the opening across from you. 
Back in here, head up the stairs to your right. Now go right and head up the 
stairs. Go through the opening at the top. Smash the stone block and a Stone 
Chomp will come out of the wall. Ignore it for now, but go up the stairs and 
pick up the Pyramid Stone.

Instead of directly fighting the Stone Chomp, take Bombette and light her up. 
Have her walk down to the lower form and she'll likely explode on the Chomp, 
automatically knocking out one when the battle starts. If not, just try again. 
Take out the other Stone Chomp and then leave the room. Go back through the 
opening to the left. In this room, go through the opening on the left side. 
Back in here, drop down to the floor below you. Down here, go through the 
opening on the right and the voice will come back saying your time is running 
out. In here, go to the other side of the room. Go up the stairs and unlock the 
door and then go through the opening. Press the switch in this room and the 
sand will drain onto the lower level.

Leave this room. Back in here, head down the stairs and go through the opening 
below you. In here, go through the opening on the other side of the room. In 
this room, smash the stone block and pick up the Lunar Stone, and then a Stone 
Chomp will jump you. Defeat them both and leave the room. In here, go through 
the opening across from you. Back in this room, go up to the statues. This is 
where you place the three stones.

1. Place the Pyramid Stone on the leftmost statue
2. Place the Diamond Stone on the middle statue
3. Place the Lunar Stone on the right statue

After that, a staircase will form. Go down the staircase and use the Heart 
Block. Continue going down the staircase and go through the opening at the 
bottom. You'll get one last speech out of that voice. Save your game and go 
through the opening to your right, where you'll fight your second boss.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BOSS: King Tutankoopa
HP: 30
Attack: 3
Defense: 0

Before coming in, I suggest putting on the D-Down Pound badge to make your life 
15x easier. Tutankoopa will release a Chain Chomp at you now and then. It has a 
defense of 3, so hammer does 1 HP. But if you got D-Down Pound, you can knock 
it out in 1 turn. Hey, I'll take the star points from it though. He has 3 Bony 
Beetle shells on him, and he'll throw them at you for 3 HP damage. His other 
attack is a weird curse attack which can either hit you for 2 HP (and knock out 
your partner for 2 turns) or he'll knock himself out. Just keep attacking him 
with your jump attacks, use Goombario/Parakarry, and his HP will be down in no 
time. Also, take out the Chain Chomps for free star points.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After, Chain Chomp will enter the room and go after Tutankoopa. He'll chase him 
out of the room. Collect the card and you'll rescue Mamar! Yay!
 
PRINCESS PEACH'S CASTLE
Bowser will come in and rub it in about how he kicked the crap out of Mario and 
tells him he can't defeat our next victim, Tubba Blubba. Then Kammy comes in 
saying the Star Spirit flew away from Tubba Blubba's castle. Now, you'll take 
control over Peach and have to find info about Tubba Blubba.
 
Same deal as last time, examine the picture and press the switch. Enter the 
opening in the fireplace. Go down the hall and press the switch to enter the 
room where you found Bowser's diary. This time, the door's unlocked, so leave 
the room. You're in the main hall now, so watch out for the guards. When you're 
out here, follow the red carpet to the next door, and then enter it. You'll be 
in the library. Go on the other side of the bookshelf, but don't get caught by 
the guard. Wait until the guard faces right, and then head left into the 
pathway. For the next part, wait until the guard is on the other side of the 
table. Then head left into the next part. You'll be on the right side of three 
alcoves. Sneak past the guard and pick up the Power Rush badge from the left 
alcove. To get this to Mario, go back in the main hallway. From the library 
door, follow the red carpet to a locked door. 

From the locked door, go right and follow the carpet. Skip the first door you 
find and get to the second. Open it and you'll be in a closet. Pick up the Deep 
Focus Badge on the other side of the room. See that chest? Open it and drop the 
two badges in it (Mario can pick them up at Merluvee's House in the Shooting 
Star Summit). Now go back to the Library. Sneak past the guards until you get 
to the spot where you got Power Rush. Now go left and you'll find a Guard and a 
Hammer Bros. Walk left and listen to their conversation. After the 
conversation, they'll find you hear and bring you back to your room.

BACK TO THE MAIN ADVENTURE
Mamar will upgrade your Star Energy to 2 units (yellow and green) and give you 
a Star Power, Lullaby (uses 1 meter and can put enemies to sleep). When she 
goes away, keep taking the southern exits until you get the area with the main 
path. Now keep going west until you find Kolorado's Tent. Give Kolorado the 
Artifact and he'll give you a Star Piece. Now exit west and you'll be on Mt. 
Rugged.

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

There's nothing much to do here. Just backtrack to the area where you found 
Parakarry and gave him the three letters (the area with the Heart Block). Go 
left and you'll find a stone block. Smash it and go left. Use the Super Block 
to upgrade Goombario or Parakarry. Now go down to the train and use it to get 
back to Toad Town.

----------
Toad Town
----------

From the station, go north from here. In this area, we can go east and start 
the next chapter, but why not some Side Quests? 
 
******************************************************************************* 
POST CHAPTER 2 SIDE QUESTS 
 
From here, take the west exit. Now to go the exit at the other side of the room 
and you'll be at the Toad Town Port. Enter the Club 64 and talk to the Toad in 
the dark green mushroom hat. Now leave the place. Go back to the Tayce T. area 
and enter Toad Town Tunnels. Now that we got a Super Hammer, smash the block to 
the left and enter. You'll fight a Super Blooper.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
MINI BOSS: Electro Blooper
HP: 50
Attack: 4
Defense: 0

Like the last Blooper, just keep jumping on him and use Goombario/Parakarry. 
He'll do a headspin on you for 4 HP. Sometimes the blooper will charge himself. 
This will make him more powerful, but if you jump on him, you'll get hurt but 
discharge him. He'll squirt ink at you for 4 HP as well. If you upgraded 
Goombario to Super Rank, keep using Charge until you run out of FP. Once you 
do, just jump on him and Action Command to do a ton of damage. Otherwise, use 
your best attacks to mow him down.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
 
After the fight, a switch will appear. Hit it and three pipes will appear. The 
left one goes to Dry Dry Outpost, the middle one goes to Koopa Village, and the 
right one goes to Goomba Village. We'll do side quests for these cities 
shortly. For now, go left and smash the stone block. Now go through the 
opening. In here, hit the three "?" blocks for 2 coins and a Snowman Doll. Use 
the rising platforms to get onto the platform to your left. On here, enter the 
pipe to your left. In this room, go left and jump on the brick block for the 
spring to fall down. Use the spring to get on the platform. Open the chest for 
the Power Smash Badge. Now jump down and leave this room.

Back in here, jump across the two balancing platforms and go through the 
opening. In this room, go up the rising platforms and you'll be on a higher 
floor. Up here, go all the way right and you'll find a hole, so fall down it. 
Down here, use the Super Block to upgrade the only partner you haven't upgraded 
yet (you have four partners, and three of them should be upgraded; use this to 
upgrade the last one). Now enter the pipe to leave this room. Back in here, use 
the rising platform to get to the platform above you. Have Parakarry fly you 
across the two gaps and get the Star Piece. Now go left and leave this room. 
Back in here, jump over the two platforms and enter the pipe. In this room, 
head right and go through the opening and you'll be back where you opened up 
three pipes. Take the left pipe to Dry Dry Outpost.

DRY DRY OUTPOST SIDE QUESTS 
When you enter here, go in the house next to you. Talk to the guy (he writes 
melodies for lyrics). Now go back to where Toad Town Port and talk to the green 
mushroom toad again. He'll give you Lyrics. Bring the lyrics back to the Dry 
Dry Outpost house and give them to the guy. He'll give you the Melody. If you 
bring this back to the lyrics writer at Toad Town, the Pop Diva will sing a 
song and you get the Attack FX D Badge. Now, get back to Toad Town Tunnels. 
Take the middle pipe to Koopa Village.

KOOPA VILLAGE SIDE QUESTS
If you want, do Koopa Koot favors here. You can do 3 extra ones now that you've 
cleared Chapter 2. Take Parakarry and go to the Toad House. Give the letter to 
the Toad inside for a Star Piece. That's all we can do here. Go back to Toad 
Town Tunnels and take the right pipe to Goomba Village.

GOOMBA VILLAGE SIDE QUESTS
There's only one thing we can do here. Give the letter to Goompapa and he'll 
give you a letter to bring to Muss T. (he's the Toad hanging around where 
Peach's castle used to be). Go back to Toad Town Tunnels. Back in Toad Town 
Tunnels, go right and take the pipe to Toad Town.

TOAD TOWN SIDE QUESTS
We're not done with our Side Quests. Go to the center of Toad Town. Enter 
Merlon's House. Give him the letter with Parakarry for a Star Piece. Now go 
through the castle gates and give Muss T. the letter. He'll give you a letter 
for Koover, a Koopa in Koopa Village, but we'll deal with it later (he's the 
Koopa in front of the Toad House). Go to the Shooting Star Summit and enter 
Merluvee's House. See that chest in the corner? Open it and take out the Power 
Rush and Deep Focus Badges (Power Rush increases your attack by 2 when in 
danger, Deep Focus increases the amount of star energy recovered when using 
Focus). If you want to trade Star Pieces for Badges, go upstairs and do so with 
Merlow.

That wraps up our Post-Chapter 2 Side Quests, Go to the Toad Town area where 
Tayce's house is.
******************************************************************************* 
 
From here, cross the bridge to the right and you'll find a ghost scared the 
crap out of the guard. He'll ask you if you've seen a ghost, then a ghost will 
disappear. From here, head right into the next area. Save your game and 
continue right into Forever Forest, where a Boo named Bootler will invite you 
in and allow you to go through the forest.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
Chapter 3: The "Invincible" Tubba Blubba
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

We've got 2 star spirits saved, and reports are right that one escaped from the 
forest.

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

Alright, this is like the Lost Woods from Zelda: OOT. You must take the correct 
path or else you'll be back at the start. Use the trees and bushes as clues to 
get you through. Go through the gate. Facing the sign, go right and follow the 
path to the next gate. This is the wrong gate. Head right and get in front of 
the next gate. The flowers should shake from side to side, meaning it's the 
right path. Enter the gate and go into the next area.

In this area, the guard won't let you through. Talk to him again and he'll 
realize you're going to Boo's Mansion. Now enter the gate. Facing the flowers, 
go left and get to the next gate, battling the Forest Fuzzy. Walk up to the 
gate and eyes should shine deep inside the hole in the tree, meaning this is 
the right path. Enter the gate and go into the next area.

Enter the gate. Facing the flowers, go left and get to the next gate. The 
flowers in front of you should be dark blue and red. Examine them and they'll 
shake, meaning this is the right exit. Go through the gate and into the next 
area.

Enter the gate in this area. Go left and you'll see a path leading to the 
center of this area. Uproot the flower and the Bub-ulb will give you Flower 
Seed #3. Now go back to the circular path. Head left to the next gate. This is 
the wrong gate, so continue left to the next gate. The tree should smile when 
you walk in front of the gate, so enter the gate and continue to the next area.

In this area, go right. Enter the first gate you see. This is not the right 
path, but it takes us to an alternate area. If you take the wrong path here, 
you go back to the beginning. See that beehive? Use that as a landmark like 
Goombario says. Go left until you see a path that leads to the middle of the 
area. Take this path and hit the red "?" block for an HP Plus Badge. Now go 
back to the tree that had a beehive. Take this gate and exit to get back to the 
previous area.

Back in here, take either path to the opposite side of this area (meaning go 
past 1 gate and stop at the next). The gate you're in front of you have a lot 
of mushrooms growing on the bushes (if not, you're at the wrong one, as the 
others have 3 each). Examine them if you want, but take the gate and enter the 
next area.

In this area, if you examine the flowers, they will shrink inside the bushes, 
meaning it's the wrong path. Go right until you get to the next gate. Examine 
the flowers. If they don't shrink, you have the right path. Enter the gate and 
into the next area.

In this area, go right and you'll find a sign. This gate take's us to Boo's 
Mansion, but don't go here yet. Go right and you'll get to the next gate. 
Examine the rock and see if it laughs at you. If it does, take the path. In 
this area, head left until you find a red "?" block. Hit it to get the FP Plus 
Badge. Now go back on the main path. At each gate, examine the bushes until 
flowers appear out of them. This is the correct path. Enter the gate and go to 
the previous area.

Now, go left to the gate that has a sign. Enter this gate to get at Boo's 
Mansion. Now, go through the gate and the Bootler will greet you here. Now use 
the Heart Block, save, and enter Boo's Mansion.

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

Head up the stairs to your left. At the top of the stairs, skip the first door 
and enter the second. You'll notice three different cupboards on the left. 
Examine the middle one and the whole bunch of Boos will come out. Now, they 
will rotate clockwise, throwing an item called a Record to each other. Now, 
keep your eye on the Boo that has the Record, and when you can take back 
control of Mario, jump on the Boo that has the Record. If you guess it right, 
you get it. If not, you play the game again. Once you have the Record, leave 
the room. Now enter the door to your left where you'll be greeted by a Boo 
scaring the crap out of you.

Put the Record in the record player and keep tapping A at a steady rate (make 
sure you keep the bar at the "OK" level. When the boo comes dancing close 
enough, cancel and spin dash to the chest he was guarding. Open it for a 
weight. Now leave this room. Back out here, head down the stairs to the first 
floor. Jump on the couch. Walk on the brown cushion and you'll be sprung to a 
chandelier. It will slide a bookcase to the left. Put the weight on it and 
it'll keep the bookcase from sliding back to the right, thus covering the door. 
Go inside the new door. In this room, open the chest if you want a little 
scare. Head down the stairs.

At the bottom of the stairs, open the door in front of you. In this room, open 
the door to your right. Open the big chest in this room and a bunch of dancing 
Boos will come out with the Super Boos going clockwise. You must guess the 
correct Boo this time like you did with the Record, but they'll toss it around 
more. With the Super Boots, you can do more damage and if you press A while in 
the air, you can do a ground pound. This can destroy parts of the floor and 
open up secret Star Piece panels (as a matter of fact, there's a secret panel 
in this room).

|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: Just after getting the Super Boots, do a Spin Jump in front 
of the Boo and the Star Piece should be right there.
||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
 
After you find your first hidden Star Piece, use your spin jump ability to fall 
through the wooden floor in this room.

Down here, there is a shop, but you can't get anything from here until Lady Bow 
becomes your partner. Hit the switch and another switch will appear. Hit this 
switch and a much bigger switch appears. Jump on the chair to get on the table. 
Now spin jump on the big switch to make a staircase appear. Head up the 
staircase. At the top, go through the door across from you.

|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: Go in front of the clock and spin jump. Part of the floor 
should rise up. Walk closer to the floor and spin jump for a star piece to come 
out.
|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Back in this room, collect the hidden Star Piece and go up the stairs. At the 
top, go through the door to be back in the main hall.

|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: Go to the carpet near the couch. Spin jump and a hidden star 
piece should come out of the couch.

HIDDEN STAR PIECE #2: Go back to the room where you got the record. Spin jump 
on the carpet and a Star Piece should come out.
|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Now get back in the main hall. Open the door on the right across from you. If 
you want to jump in the vase, do so and you'll become the original 8-bit Mario, 
but you can't do anything. Become Paper Mario and spin jump through the wooden 
floor. Have Parakarry fly you over the bookshelf to pick up Boo's Portrait. Now 
go back to the other bookshelf. Go down to the end of it. Below you and to your 
left is a stack of boxes. Try to jump on these. Spin jump through both boxes 
and you'll get a Star Piece. If you miss, go back upstairs and try again. Use 
Bombette to blow up that wall to your right. From here, work your way to the 
main hall.

Now go up the stairs. Up here, go past both doors and examine the empty 
picture. Put the Boo's Portrait in side and use it to jump onto the top floor. 
At the top floor, enter the doors. You'll find Lady Bow and the Bootler. After 
a long speech of Tubba Blubba and the escaped Star Spirit who is trapped now, 
she'll automatically join your team to take out Tubba Blubba. Go back to the 
main hall (fall off the ledge) and exit the mansion. Save your game and head 
right into the next area. Go right until you get to a gate and Bow will let the 
Boos open it.

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

||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: From the gate, spin jump to the right of the gate and you 
should easily find the Star Piece, so pick it up.
|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

After you get the Hidden Star Piece, head right into the next area. I recommend 
putting on the D-Down Pound Badge for the Gusty Gulch area. Watch out for Hyper 
Goombas in this area. If they charge up, they'll do a lot of damage to you (us 
Bow's Outta Sight will protect you against these, but using this attack 
prevents you from using her the next turn). From the windmill, head right into 
the next area.

In the next area, you'll meet up with a few Boos. Lady Body will talk to them 
about Tubba Blubba. Continue heading east and save. Now head right and enter 
the next area. Use the Heart Block if needed and continue right. Another Boo 
will talk to you and Tubba Blubba will come. Use C-Down to have Bow hide you. 
Tubba Blubba will eat a Boo. After the cut-scene, head right and get into the 
next area. In this area, you'll find Hyper Clefts. These are like Hyper 
Goombas, where they can charge and then do a lot of HP the next turn. You'll 
need D-Down Pound if you want to defeat them, but they give out a heft amount 
of Star Points. Bash the "?" block for a coin and continue right. Jump on the 
ledge and hit the "?" blocks for a coin and Repel Gel. Continue right and pick 
up the Letter (it's for Fice T., the Toad guard near Forever Forest). Now head 
right into the next area.

In this area, head right and take out the Hyper ParaGoomba. Now go right up the 
slope and use Parakarry to get over the gap. Now head right. Take out the Hyper 
Cleft near the rock. Go around the rock and pick of the Star Piece. Hit the 3 
"?" blocks for a Super Shroom, a coin, and a coin. Now head right into the next 
area. In this area, head right until you get to a Save Block. Save your game 
and enter Tubba Blubbla's Castle.

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

Now, you'll want Bow for this part, because if the guards catch you, they'll 
kick you out of the castle, so use Bow to hide from them. At the start of the 
castle, go left and enter the door, avoiding the guards. In this hallway, 
you'll meet Clubbas, which are other guards in this castle that can be 
annoying. Now go all the way left and you'll find a solo door and a double 
door. Enter the solo door first. Take out the Clubba if you want and then use 
the boxes and the chair to jump on the table and pick up the Star Piece. Now 
leave this room. Back in here, go through the double doors.

In this room, take out the two Clubbas and go to the other side of the room. 
Enter the solo door. In here, go down the staircase. At the bottom, take out 
the Clubba and use the Spin Jump to go through the wooden floor. In this room, 
open the chest for a Castle Key. Now go down south and drop to the floor below 
you. Down here, use the Heart Block and open the door to your left. In this 
room, use the Super Block to upgrade Bow and Bow only, because you'll use her 
for the whole castle. Now go up the stairs. At the top, go through the double 
doors and you'll be in the Dining Room again. Get back to the main hall.

Back in the main hall, use the key to unlock the door on the right. In this 
room, go all the way right until you get to a staircase. Climb the staircase 
and open the door at the top, avoiding the guard. There's nothing much to do in 
this room. Just walk across the hall and enter the next set of doors. See that 
Clubba sleeping? Battle him and look at the wall he was in front of sleeping. 
Let Bombette blow up the cracked wall and go inside. There are three panels you 
can spin jump to break. They will make holes leading to the floor below. They 
are shaped like this.

1    2
    
     3

Spin Jump on panel #1 and fall through. You'll bounce on the spring. You can 
use this spring to get back up to the higher floor as a shortcut. Now bounce 
back up. Smash panel #2 and fall through. You'll land on a table. Let Parakarry 
fly you over the table so you can pick up the D-Down Jump badge. This is the 
same as D-Down Pound, except you can do more damage by jumping. Now use the 
spring to get back up. Back up here, leave the room and go left until you get 
to two doors, hiding from the guards. Enter the smaller door. In here, you'll 
notice spikes rising from the ground. If you touch them, you get sent back to 
the front of the room. You need to get across the pit without getting nailed by 
the spikes. When they're about to come up, use Bow to hide you and protect you 
from the spikes. Now get to the end and open the chest for a Castle Key and 
leave the room. Now go through the double doors. You'll be on the second floor 
of the dining room. See the fence in the middle of the room? Go on the left 
side of it and look for the opening. Fall through to land on the table below. 
Pick up the Star Piece. Now enter the door on the right. Back in this hall, go 
to the other side of the room. Go through the single door and use the spring to 
bounce yourself back up. Now get back to the 2nd floor of the dining room.

See that clock on the left side of the room? Push it to the right and it will 
reveal an opening, so go through it. Examine the right side of the drawer to 
open a shelf. Use the open shelves and Parakarry to get on the bed. Collect the 
coins. From the bedpost, jump on the shelf. Now jump on the books and then the 
next shelf. Go down and you'll come across a blue book. Go in the secret room 
to your left. Head down the stairs and get the Mega Rush Badge (attack goes up 
by 4 when in Peril). Now get out of here and leave the room. Back in here, get 
rid of the Clubba and unlock the door. Get the Maple Syrup from the "?" block 
and head up the stairs. At the top, go right and you'll find Tubba Blubba. 
He'll come closer and closer to you. Keep going right until you see him, then 
hide with Bow and he'll walk away. Once he's gone, go all the way right and 
you'll find a door and a locked door. Gee, I wonder which one we should open.

If you wake up the Clubbas in here, this area will be total rape. This is why 
you need the Slow Go badge from Dry Dry Ruins. Equip it (doesn't need BP) and 
walk across the area until you get the Castle Key. Now, walk back to the door 
again and de-equip the badge, but if you want to fight these Clubbas for a good 
amount of Star Points, go ahead. Leave this room. Open the locked door to your 
right. A Heart AND a Save Block! I haven't seen these in ages! Use both of them 
and go into the next room. Since there's nothing much to do here, enter the 
door at the other side of the room, and you'll find this is Tubba Blubba's 
bedroom. Go all the way to the other side of the room and Tubba Blubba will 
come in and take a nap. Open the chest and a key named Yakkey will come out. 
Talk to her and answer yes to the question. Then she'll yell out to Tubba 
Blubba there's a thief. He'll wake up, so bolt your ass out of this room. Now, 
walk to the left, and Tubba Blubba will come out and demolish this platform, 
causing you to fall to the floor below you. Mario will automatically walk to 
the door to the right.

If you got Speedy Spin, now is a good time to equip it. Just run like hell. 
Don't even fight him, because you can't do anything on him yet. Run down the 
stairs and keep running to the door. You're in the main hall. Get out of the 
castle! Meanwhile, a gang of Boos will come in to take out Tubba Blubba. You'll 
come out of the castle, and they'll block the door for you. Save your game. Now 
that you're back in Gusty Gulch, get yourself to the windmill and unlock it. In 
the Windmill, smash the board with your spin jump and open the door at the 
bottom. Keep going through each hallway until you get to Tubba Blubba's heart.
 
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BOSS: Tubba's Heart
HP: 50
Attack: 6
Defense: 0

It sucks because you can't get any Star Points out of this boss. But the battle 
will end when you get the heart down to 5 HP or below. The heart will attack 
you directly for 6 HP, or most of the time, she'll charge up and release a 
devastating attack for 12 HP. This is where you use Bow's Outta Sight attack. 
Otherwise, just attack it and use Outta Sight when it charges up and you'll 
bring the heart down.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
 
Now, switch to Parakarry and follow the heart. When it gets back to the front, 
use the spring to bounce up and leave the windmill. The heart will reunite with 
Tubba Blubba.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
BOSS: Tubba Blubba
HP: 10
Attack: 4
Defense: 0

This is the easiest boss in the whole game. Tubba Blubba is not "invincible." 
Now, if you really tried, you can knock him out in one turn. Use Mario to jump 
for 4 HP and let Parakarry do a Shell Shot for 6 HP (he must be at Super Rank 
for 6 HP, however). If not, Tubba Blubba can either squash you for 6 HP or do 
an attack for 4 HP. Then you can knock him out the next turn.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After defeating the easiest boss of video game history, he'll spit back up all 
the Boos he has ever eaten (wouldn't they be digested at this point?). Now, Bow 
will ask you if she can permanently join the team. Answer yes of course. She 
will call the Bootler to release the Star Spirit. Save your game and then we'll 
take over as Princess Peach.

PRINCESS PEACH'S CASTLE 
You're not going to do much here. Do the usual. Activate hidden switch, go down 
secret hall, press switch at the end. Looks like Bowser and Kammy are already 
here. Bowser isn't 100% convinced Tubba Blubba is defeated and makes Kammy 
explain it slowly. Then Bowser notices you're here and blames it on the guards. 
But this time, before being thrown into your room, they'll ask you what Mario's 
weak points are. Answer with "Mushroom, Thunder Rage, and Super Soda" (you'll 
get these items later). And then Bowser orders Kammy to set the traps with 
these 3 items. Then you get captured and tossed in your room.

BACK TO THE MAIN ADVENTURE
Skolar, the third Star Spirit, will give you a light blue Star Energy Meter and 
the ability to use Star Storm (uses 2 star energy meters but damages all 
enemies for 7 HP on the field. From here, head left into the next area. Open 
the gate and go to the area outside Boo's Mansion. Save your game and head into 
Forever Forest.

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

Enter the gate and you'll hear screaming that someone's lost in the forest. 
Take either path and you'll meet up with Jr. Troopa. Yep, time to fight him 
again.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
MINI BOSS: Jr. Troopa III 
HP: 40
Attack: 5
Defense: 1 

There's no real strategy for this fight, except Jr. Troopa is in the air (no 
hammer for you). He uses the same attack every turn for 5 HP, so you'll be in 
Danger pretty quickly. Now, he has a defense of one, so if you have regular 
Goombario, he's worthless. If you have any Parakarry, Sky Dive/Shell Shot will 
work. However, if you upgraded Goombario to super rank, you'll have the godly 
move called Charge. Use it every turn until you run low of Flower Points (if 
you start to run low on HP, heal). Use Star Storm with Mario (or your best jump 
attacks). After you've charged a lot of times, just let Goombario manhandle Jr. 
Troopa (I did 34 HP in one turn thanks to Charge!).
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
 
To get out of the forest, just take any incorrect path. You'll be back at the 
start. Take the path next to you to get back in Toad Town. It appears Jr. 
Troopa's so excited he got out of here.

---------- 
Toad Town
----------

As soon as you walk out of the Forever Forest vicinity, some odd holy crap I 
got ants in my pants psycho music starts playing. What's going on? Head left 
into the next area where the guard Fice T. is. Use Parakarry to deliver his 
letter for a Star Piece.

||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: Use your spin jump in front of the guard house until you 
find the hidden panel containing the Star Piece.
|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Now, cross the bridge and you'll hear screaming from Tayce T's house. A Shy Guy 
comes out with her favorite Frying Pan (come on, she has a bunch of them above 
her stove, what's wrong with them)? Looks like cooking is disabled until you 
get the Frying Pan back. How about we head north to the center of town? A Shy 
Guy runs off with Rowf's calculator, so we can't get buy any badges from him 
for the time being. If you want, take out the Shy Guys jumping around the 
garden. Hey, I say we rest in the Toad House. Looks like that Shy Guy on the 
bed is asking for a pillow fight. Hit him and go take your rest.

If you try to go to the Post Office, another Shy Guy runs off with all of the 
letters. Hey, what's wrong with Merlon? Why does he look sad outside his house? 
I bet my money there's a Shy Guy messing around in his house. Talk to him and 
he'll mention something about running around a tree in Dry Dry Outpost and then 
he'll go back in his house. Follow him inside. Ah damnit, no Shy Guys here. 
Take my money. Want a free badge? Spin jump three times in here and some badge 
comes falling from the attic. It's the Quick Change badge, which allows you to 
switch your partner and not use up a turn. This is very useful later on in the 
Flower Fields.

Want to see more Shy Guys causing trouble? Go to the area to the left of here. 
In this area, head to the item shop and a guy will come out of someone's house 
with his Dictionary (it's called dictionary.com). Hey, why is the shopkeeper 
outside his store? Go inside the shop and knock out the Shy Guy. Now you can 
buy from here once again.

||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: From the Fighting Dojo, go south onto the grass where the 
three female Toads are. Use your Spin Jump to the right of them and you should 
easily find a Star Piece.
|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Want to find another hidden Star Piece in Toad Town? Go to the railroad station 
in Toad Town. Take out the Shy Guy in front of the train if you wish (why not 
just run over the bastard)? Now, to find the hidden Star Piece, get in front of 
the level crossing. Go all the way right until you bump to the end of the area. 
Spin jump and the panel should bump up. Keep trying until you get the Star 
Piece.

******************************************************************************* 
POST CHAPTER 3 SIDE QUESTS

Now that we got the Super Boots, we can go back to old places and look for 
hidden Star Pieces. Also, we can open up a completely new area in Toad Town 
Tunnels. But MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE FEELING FINE BADGE WHEN YOU DO THIS, OR 
THIS WILL BE DIFFICULT. When you enter Toad Town Tunnels, use Spin Jump on the 
floor next to you and you'll fall to the lower floor. Now, head left and you'll 
get yourself locked in an area to fight purple Dark Koopas. The difference with 
these is that they can make you dizzy, knocking you out for a few times. This 
is why you need Feeling Fine, to prevent this from happening.

The procedure for knocking them out is the same as any Koopa, flip them over 
and attack. Sometimes they won't try to dizzy you and will do a spin attack 
instead for 3 HP. After defeating them, hit the switch to make a pipe appear. 
This will take you to outside of Boo's Mansion. There really are no side quests 
you can do here. If you go left from here, you'll get to an area where you can 
solve a puzzle for a Super Block, but you should have all 5 of your partners 
upgraded. To solve the puzzle, you'll need our next partner, Watt, to light the 
room and discover hidden blocks. Go east from the blue pipe into the previous 
area. Use the pipe to get back to the main room in Toad Town Tunnels. Go west 
from here into the room with three pipes.

DRY DRY OUTPOST SIDE QUESTS 
In Dry Dry Outpost, we can discover three hidden Star Pieces, so take the left 
pipe. When you're in, head right to the next area. Now get to the top of the 
houses like you did way back in chapter two. When you're on the roof, head left 
and you'll get to the bridge connecting two buildings. Keep spin jumping to the 
right of the bridge (and on the higher ledge), and you'll find it.

The second hidden Star Piece is in the Dry Dry Desert. Once you're in the Dry 
Dry Desert, head west and follow the path until you get to an area with a 
whirlwind and a gray cactus. Spin jump in front of the cactus and you'll find 
the hidden Star Piece. Now, go to the area in the Dry Dry Desert where you 
first met Kolorado. Since you completed Chapter 3, he should be out of this 
area. Remember how his tent was blocking a tree? Smash that tree for a letter. 

Before going back to Dry Dry Outpost, go to Mt. Rugged. Get into the area where 
you found a letter and the Quake Hammer Badge. Go to where the slide is. From 
the slide, spin jump in the right corner and you'll find a third hidden Star 
Piece in the area.

Now go back to Dry Dry Outpost and enter Toad Town Tunnels. Take the middle 
pipe for Koopa Village.

KOOPA VILLAGE SIDE QUESTS
Remember that chain letter we were doing? It last ended with Muss T. and we 
should have a letter for Koover. He is the Koopa in front of the Toad House. 
Give him the letter and he'll give you a letter for Fishmael at Toad Town Port. 
He's the creature that's fishing. Go to Town Town Port and give it to him 
(while you're at the Town Town Port, Spin Jump near the save block for a hidden 
Star Piece). You'll get a letter for Koover again, so come back here and give 
the letter to Koover. Your next letter will be for Mr. E at Dry Dry Outpost. 
He's the person in front of the Toad House wearing a blue turban. Before giving 
the letter to him, go to Pleasant Path. Head up the steps.

||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: From the top of the steps in Pleasant Path, go to where the 
three blue striped poles are. Spin jump to the right of them and you'll easily 
find the Star Piece.

HIDDEN STAR PIECE #2: While you're still on Pleasant Path, head right and cross 
the bridge into the next area. Remember the bush where the Koopa came out and 
ambushed you when you got the coins? Spin jump where the coins were and you'll 
find the Star Piece.
||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
 
Now go back to Koopa Village. Before entering the pipe to Toad Town Tunnels, go 
to where the three red bob-ombs are.

|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: Spin jump to the left of the three red bob-ombs and you'll 
find an easy Star Piece.
|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

No go to the other side of Koopa Village and enter the pipe into Toad Town 
Tunnels. Go back to Dry Dry Outpost and give the letter to Mr. E (remember, 
blue turban in front of Toad House). The letter he wants to give to you is for 
Miss T. (one of the Toads hanging out in front of the Dojo). We'll deal with 
this later. For now, go back to Toad Town Tunnels and enter the right pipe.

GOOMBA VILLAGE SIDE QUESTS 
If you got the letter from Dry Dry Desert, go in the house and give Goompa the 
letter for a Star Piece. Now go outside and go into the area where Goombaria 
found you dead at the beginning of the game. Spin Jump in the middle of the 
open area until you find a hidden Star Piece. Remember the area where you fell 
from the balcony? Go through the gate and get yourself to that area. See that 
stone block? Smash it. Now jump where the stone block used to be and you'll 
find a hidden Repel Gel. Now spin jump to the north and east of where the block 
used to be to find a hidden Star Piece. Now go back.

In Toad Town Tunnels, there's nothing much else to do. Head right and use the 
pipe to get back to Toad Town.

OTHER HIDDEN STAR PIECES WE CAN GET 
-If you go to Merluvee's House, spin jump near her house (in front of the 
Flower Part) and you'll find a hidden Star Piece.

-In the Shooting Star Summit, take the northern path. Now, jump on the biggest 
step and spin jump for a Star Piece.

-Go to the main entrance of Toad Town. Head left into the Goomba Road. In this 
area, head up the stairs and left into the next area. Go to the bridge and 
you'll see a tree next to the bridge. Spin jump to the right of the tree and 
you'll find the Star Piece.

-Go to Peach's castle and then cross the bridge to Shooting Star Summit. Spin 
jump to the south and east of the right side of the bridge until you find the 
hidden panel containing the Star Piece.

You can continue the chain mail if you want, but I'll do the next parts in the 
"POST CHAPTER 4 SIDE QUESTS".
******************************************************************************* 
 
From Tayce T's area, head left. Now, you'll meet up with Twink (unless you 
haven't done so doing my side quests), and he'll congratulate you for beating 
Tubba Blubba. But he doesn't know where to find Shy Guy's Toy Box, and then 
he'll leave. To be honest, it's right around the corner. Go all the way left to 
the other side of the area. You'll find a yellow house. Open the yellow house 
and go up to the wall to your right. Take out Bow and let her hide you until a 
Shy Guy comes in. He'll reveal the hidden door. Open it and then use the spring 
inside to start Chapter 4.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
Chapter 4: Trials in the Toy Box
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

3 star spirits are now rescued, but this time, Shy Guys are making hell break 
loose across Toad Town for no reason, and it's up to us to stop the madness and 
rescue our next star spirit.

||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: Spin jump in front of the blue station (or Blue Toad, to be 
more specific), and collect the Star Piece once you find it.
||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
 
When you start this area, save your game and take the left path into the next 
area. In this area, head left and you'll find a black Shy Guy guarding a chest. 
Say "fight" twice when you talk to him. This is a very tough fight, but I think 
you can handle it, as long as you got the right badges and healing items. 
Again, this fight is difficult and totally optional, so if you want to level up 
a few times before fighting him, don't feel bad for doing so.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
MINI BOSS: Anti Guy
HP: 50
Attack: 10
Defense: 0

Anti Guy has two attacks. One is that he charges at you for 10 HP and a dance 
aerobic for 12 HP. Now, it is suggested you have a Whacka's Bump or two. Also 
include plenty of Super Shrooms. Use your best attacks like Power Bounce, Power 
Smash, Star Storm, and your best items and you'll mow his HP down pretty 
quickly. If you have a Repel Gel or two, this would be a great battle to use 
it. In addition, Stone Caps will also be useful for this battle, so that your 
partner can attack Anti Guy while Mario stays immune to damage for a few turns.

My personal strategy is that I have a Super-Ranked Goombario Charge for several 
turns, while Mario deals out damage. After a few turns of charging, have 
Goombario use Headbonk to deal a significant amount of damage.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
 
Now, defeating Anti Guy will allow you to open the chest for a Power Plus 
Badge, which increases your jump and hammer by one.

Head left from here and take out the Groove Guys (Shy Guys that can make you 
dizzy if they dance in front of you). All Shy Guys have 7 HP and each different 
type of Shy Guy has its own special abilities. Now hit the "?" block for a coin 
and head left into the next area.

You'll notice Shy Guys are holding onto items. Look for the one that has Rowf's 
Calculator. Fight this Shy Guy and take it from him at the end of the fight. 
Now head back to the spring, but don't exit Shy Guy Toy Box. This time, take 
the path to the right.

Kammy Koopa will place a Mushroom next to the chest at the end of the room 
saying "Mario hates this thing, so he'll surely turn back." (you'll get the 
Mushroom if you selected it at Peach's castle. Now, when you enter the room, 
take out the Shy Guy and head right. You'll see a block star block next to the 
barrier. Spin jump on the block and it'll send you flying to the platform above 
you. Up here, spin jump on the block to send you over the gap. Now drop down to 
the ground to your right. Down here, take out the Sky Guy (Shy Guys that are in 
the air with slingshots; attacking their balloons makes them a Shy Guy).

Now head all the way right and you'll see three houses. To the left of the 
three houses is a yellow-green cylinder. Walk behind the cylinder and pick up 
the Star Piece. Go in the middle one and jump up the stairs inside to get on 
the roof. On the top of the roof, let Parakarry fly you to the roof on your 
left. Pick up the Star Piece and then fly across to the middle room again. Jump 
on the roof to your right and then drop down to the floor below you. Down here, 
head right. Take the Mushroom and open the chest for a storeroom key. Head back 
left and use the blue block to bounce you over the barrier. From here, go back 
left to the main area, using the spring blocks to get you above the barriers. 
At the main area, use the spring to get into Toad Town.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
TOAD TOWN ERRANDS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Two things to do here: 
 
-Return the calculator to Rowf. He'll reward you with an "I Spy" badge, which 
makes an alarm sound when you walk into an area with a hidden Star Piece. 
Buying from Rowf is now available again.

-Go to the Toad Town Shop near the Shy Guy Toy Box secret house. Inside, give 
the storeroom key to the clerk and he'll unlock it. This means you can go 
inside the storeroom. There are 4 items here: Snowman Doll, Volt Shroom, Toy 
Train, Dizzy Dial. Take the Toy Train and the other 3 items if you like. Oh, 
here are the items you can buy here:

Stone Cap (30 coins) 
Dizzy Dial (15 coins) 
Thunder Rage (20 coins) 
Tasty Tonic (5 coins) 
Volt Shroom (10 coins) 
Super SHroom (20 coins)

With the Toy Train, to go Shy Guy's Toy Box. Before hopping on the spring, 
examine the box you jump into. Put the Toy Train in the box and it will land on 
the rails, making the train accessible. Go into Shy Guy Toy Box and save your 
game.

----------------
Shy Guy Toy Box
----------------

When you enter the Toy Box, press the pink arrow switch near the train so you 
can go to the Pink Station. Now talk to the Toad in front of the train and 
he'll bring you into the Pink Station.

||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: Upon entering the Pink Station, get in front of the pink 
Toad and start spin jumping until you find the Star Piece hidden near the 
station.
|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Now, when you enter this area, head to the right. Open the chest to find the 
Mailbag, which is to be returned to the post office. Now enter the next area to 
your right. Kammy Koopa will drop a Thunder Rage next to the chest. When you 
walk in the area, head right. Take out the Sky Guy (you'll start seeing Medi 
Guys, Shy Guys that can heal themselves and other opponents, but they only do 1 
HP to you. Spin jump off the blue block onto the higher ledge. Up here, head 
left and open the chest for a Defend Plus Badge (increases defense by 1; this 
is highly important for the boss here). Now head all the way right until you 
get to a blue star block.

Spin jump off of it to get to the floor below you. Down here, head all the way 
right until you bump into a fence. Now a Shy Guy should come. Follow the Shy 
Guy and you'll see it open a blue spinning door (you can't open it, you need a 
Shy Guy to do so). If you can't get it, go right and wait for another Shy Guy 
to open the door. Once you're inside, head right and hit the "?" block for a 
coin. Now open the first chest for an Ice Power Badge (increases attack against 
fire enemies by 2; essential for next chapter), collect the Thunder Rage, and 
open the next chest for Tayce T's Frying Pan! 
 
From here, work your way back to the pink station, fighting any Shy/Sky Guys 
around here. Once you get back to the station, take the train back to blue 
station and get back to Toad Town.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
TOAD TOWN ERRANDS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

-Bring the Mailbag back to the Post Office for a Star Piece

-Give the Frying Pan to Tayce T. and she'll reward you with a Cake (you need it 
for the next part in Shy Guy Toy Box, if you eat it, you can get a Cake by 
getting Cake Mix from the Shy Guys that had the Calculator and having Tayce T. 
cook it).

Once you got both of these accomplished, go back into Shy Guy Toy Box

----------------
Shy Guy Toy Box
----------------

Get to pink station and save your game. This time, take the left path. You'll 
find Spy Guys in this area, Shy Guys that can disable any of your commands 
(jump, item, hammer, etc). You'll also find Pyro Guys. Since they're lit on 
fire, jumping is out of the question.

Upon entering this area, head left and hit the "?" block for a coin. Now take 
out the Spy Guy and head left into the next area. You'll come across an 
enormous Shy Guy called Gourmet Guy. He wants food, but he'll only accept a 
Cake. Give him the Cake and he'll go totally psycho and bounce out of the Toy 
Box, leaving an item behind. It is a Cookbook. Give this to Tayce T. when 
you're in Toad Town. Now go up across the level crossing. On the other side, 
head right and take out the Groove Guy. You'll get to two "?" blocks. Jump in 
the middle one for a hidden Dizzy Dial. Hit the other 2 blocks for coins and 
then head right into the next area.

Head right and take out the Groove Guy. Now hit the two "?" blocks for coins, 
and keep hitting the brick block for multiple coins. Continue right and head 
into the next area. Activate the pink lever and it'll fix the track at the 
train station, allowing you to get to the green station. If you want a hidden 
Thunder Rage, keep jumping around the north and east of the lever and you'll 
find the hidden block. Now backtrack to the pink station. Save your game and 
hit the green switch to go to the next station.

||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: Just like the last two stations, the hidden Star Piece is in 
front of the Green Toad, so spin jump in front of him and you'll find an easy 
Star Piece.
|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

To your right are four colored boxes. Hit them with your hammer in this order: 
yellow, green, red, blue. The colored walls in the back will fall to the ground 
and become a railroad track, enabling access to the Red Station. But we're not 
done here. Head right into the next area.

Kammy Koopa will drop the scary as hell Super Soda next to the chest. This area 
is tricky and Bow is required for this part. To your right are three conveyor 
belts. Take the top one that has arrows pointing to the right. There is another 
conveyor belt leading to the next part pointing right, so get on it when you 
have the chance. Now run quickly to the middle conveyor belt which is pointing 
to the right, but you'll be blocked by a fence. Use Bow to make you invisible 
and you'll be on the other side. You'll see a Shy Guy with a piece of paper, 
but don't bother. It needs to be translated by a Toad in Toad Town, but I've 
already given you the answer for the yellow green red blue.

Continue right and take out the Spy Guy. Head up the steps and you'll find 
rising platforms. Parakarry is required for this. Work your way to the yellow 
green rising platform in the top right corner (next to a blue and pink one). 
Get on it. When it lowers low enough, go through the opening to the right. Now 
pick up the coins and Star Piece in here and then get back on the yellow 
platform. Once the yellow and blue platforms are at roughly the same length, 
jump on the blue platform. When the blue platform rises to its highest, let 
Parakarry fly you over the yellow platform to get to the platform on your 
right. On here, pick up the Soda Pop and open the chest for a Dictionary, which 
we'll give to Russ T. after the chapter.

From here, get Bow out, go through the conveyor belts, and get back at green 
station. With red station accessible, activate the red switch and take the 
train to the red station.

||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: God, should it be self explanatory now? Spin jump in front 
of the red Toad if you've forgotten to find the panel.
||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 

Once you get the hidden Star Piece, save the game and use the Heart Block if 
needed. Take the left path into the next area. In this area, you'll see a 
rising platform next to a block. Before getting on it, jump to the right of the 
block and you'll find a block with a hidden Volt Shroom. Now jump on the block 
to get to the rising platform. On here, get on one of the three spinning 
platforms and use it to get to the platform to your left. On here, drop down to 
the ground below you. Take out the Pyro Guy. See the two "?" blocks? Jump in 
the middle of them to reveal a hidden red block that has a Deep Focus Badge. 
Now hit the other two blocks for 2 coins.

In front of you is a block. Use it to get on the rising platform. Once you get 
on it, get on the platform to your left. On here, drop down to the ground below 
you and head left into the next area. Using Bow is highly recommended. You're 
about to fight a mini boss.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
MINI BOSS: Big Lantern Ghost
HP: 40
Attack: 5
Defense: 0

The trick behind this is that you cannot attack him in the dark. This is where 
Bow comes in. Use her smack attack to smack the light 4-5 times. Each time you 
hit the light, the brightness increases, allowing you to attack the Ghost. His 
attacks range from blowing his light out to complete darkness. He'll also shine 
the light at you brightly, causing 2 HP and knocking out your partner for two 
turns. The Lantern Ghost will also body slam you for 5 HP. Just heal when 
needed, use Bow's smack to light up the room fast, and use your best attacks. 
You'll have him down in no time.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After the fight, go smash the light to break it open, and you'll find someone 
named Watt who was captured. After a few words, he'll join the party. Is C-Down 
ability is lighting up dark rooms and you'll see invisible blocks. Once this is 
done, go right into the previous area. Test Watt out by lighting up the room, 
revealing an invisible block with a Snowman Doll. Now get on the rising 
platform and switch to Parakarry. Get on the rising platform to your right. 
When the platform reaches its highest point, let Parakarry fly you onto the 
platform to your right. On here, use the Super Block to upgrade your newest 
member, Watt. Now go back to Red Station. When stepping in, light up Watt to 
show an invisible block near the station sign. It has a Super Shroom. Save your 
game, use the Heart Block, and head into the next area.

Now, I want you to free 6 BP to be able to equip the Defend Plus Badge, which 
can be very useful in the boss fight. In this area, head right and you'll 
notice a Shy Guy hop over the wall of blocks. Let Bombette blow up the wall and 
topple the blockade. This will make the Shy Guys scream like girls and 
evacuate. There's always that Shy Guy who keeps tripping and it's quite funny. 
Take out Watt and continue right into the next area where you'll find the 
girlish Shy Guys. Let Watt light up the room and they'll run like hell into the 
next room and tell General Guy on you. Yep, we've got to put up with him.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
BOSS: General Guy
HP: 30
Attack: 5
Defense: 2 

This battle music is awesome.
 
General Guy comes up in a few different parts.

The first part is the Shy Squad, where you face 15 Shy Guys, all of which have 
1 HP. The amount of damage they do corresponds to the amount of Shy Guys on the 
field. Each will do 1 HP, so the damage counter can add up quickly. This is 
where the Defend Plus Badge comes in, which guarantees you won't take any 
damage here. Just bring all 15 of them down.

Part two are the Stilt Guys, where you fight two of them. Both have 7 HP, so a 
Star Storm will put them away. One hit should knock them off their stilts and 
turn them into regular Shy Guys. If not, the stilt damage is 4 HP.
 
Next comes the Shy Stack, two stacks of 4 Shy Guys. Each has 10 HP. They'll 
attack you with slingshots for 4 HP. Once you take both of these out, you fight 
the General himself.

Now you take out General Guy. He'll hide in his little cart. Jumping is out of 
the question because of the defense, but hammer does 2 HP. If you've got a 
super rank Watt out, his Electro Dash does 4 HP to General Guy, since Electro 
Dash works like D-Down Jump/Pound. 
 
General Guy also has an electric attack with his light bump, damaging you for 5 
HP and knocking out your partner for 2 turns, but if you've got Watt out, the 
electric attack will not affect him in any way, shape, or form. He'll also 
throw bombs for 4 HP. I suggest using Watt to attack General Guy for 4 HP a 
turn. Use Mario to jump on the light bulb until it breaks, thus disabling his 
electric attack. I believe the light bulb itself has 10 HP. From here on out, 
heal if you need to, and use your best attacks. Goombario + Charge = win as 
well incase you don't want Watt, but Bombette does fine with Bomb attack here. 
Also, if you want to make attacking easier, use D-Down Jump/Pound to negate 
General Guy's tank's defense. You'll wear him down pretty fast.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After the fight, all the Shy Guys get out of the room screaming like girls, 
including General Guy. Again, the Shy Guy trips as he walks out. Now, the card 
with the star spirit Muskular appears. Walk into it to get your fourth star 
spirit! 
 
PRINCESS PEACH'S CASTLE
From now on, the adventures in Peach's castle get more interesting and 
entertaining. Like always, activate the hidden switch and go inside the 
fireplace. Once you're in the Bowser diary room, head to the main hall. In the 
mail hall, follow the red carpet to the right half of the room (right of the 
locked door). On the right side of the locked door, open the first door you see 
and you'll be in the Dining Room.

Holy crap, Gourmet Guy got so hyper the cake got him way up here. He's still 
hungry and it's up to us to bake him another cake. The kitchen's in the first 
floor; how do we get there! Somehow, Gourmet Guy has a key to the first floor. 
Go back out in the hall and unlock the door to get to the first floor main 
hall. Head down the stairs, but watch out for the guards. The door to the 
kitchen is directly to the right of the stairs, but we're not heading in that 
direction yet. Head up the staircase on the right side of the room and open the 
door.
 
The cabinet in this room is shaking. Open it and a Toad comes out. Apparently, 
he's been hiding in here since the earthquake. Now open the chest for a Last 
Stand Badge, a badge that cuts the damage Mario takes in half when he's in 
Danger. Now bring this badge up to the storage room (room to the right of the 
dining room). Put this in the magical chest. Now get yourself to the kitchen 
(remember, right door next to first floor staircase).

So, we're in. Twink gets a cookbook and we're ready to make the best cake ever. 
First, we must grab Sugar and Eggs and drop them both in the bowl. You get the 
food from the back, just hit A to grab it. Talk to Twink for the next step.

The next step requires us to mix the eggs/sugar in the bowl. Do this by tapping 
A as fast as you can for ten seconds. Our next step requires us to put Flour 
and Butter in the bowl. After this, the next step lets us pour our bowl of 
ingredients into the pan. The next part puts the pan in the oven for 30 
seconds. Count 30 tedious seconds once it's in the oven, BUT DO NOT HIT A 
BEFORE 30 SECONDS OR YOU'LL MESS UP. Once 30 seconds have passed, take it out 
of the oven.

The last part lets us decorate it with cream and strawberries. Put cream on 
first, and then strawberries, BUT ONLY DO ONE OF THEM EACH. After, the cake 
should be ready. Leave the room and you'll instantly be in the Dining Room. 
Give Gourmet Guy the cake. If you did it right, he'll go psycho all over the 
dining room and let you in on a secret that the next star spirit is at Lavalava 
Island. If you did the cake incorrectly, he'll obnoxiously spit the whole cake 
out and tell you what the problem is.

Gourmet Guy then leaves. Peach and Twink will talk and Twink will leave and 
tell Mario the news. Kammy on the other hand, hears rambling and enters the 
dining room to see what's going on. She'll catch you in here and the guards 
will throw you back in your room.

BACK TO THE MAIN ADVENTURE 
Mario and Muskular will talk for a while. He'll upgrade your star energy to 
four meters (fourth one is dark blue) and you'll get a new star ability, Chill 
Out, an attack that can lower the attack of enemies, and then Twink enters the 
conversation, feeling honored he meets a Star Spirit (hey, at least it wasn't 
Eldstar). Twink will also let you in on the location of the next Star Spirit. 

Now that we're done with Shy Guy Toy Box, I want you to do two things.

-Give the Cookbook you found to Tayce T. With this, you can use two items to 
create recipes. For example, a Super Shroom and a Maple Syrup will give you 
Maple Super, which recovers both 10 HP and FP.

-Give the dictionary to Russ. T. His house is located next to the pipe near the 
Toad Town entrance that leads to your house. Giving him the dictionary gives 
you a star piece.

We can start the next chapter by heading to the left, but let's do what little 
sidequests are available.
 
******************************************************************************* 
POST CHAPTER 4 SIDE QUESTS 
 
Since we didn't get a hammer/boots upgrade in chapter 4, there's nothing much 
we can unlock in Toad Town Tunnels. But Rowf does have a new set of badges up 
and you can always do some more Koopa Koot favors. But let's do the chain 
letter with Parakarry. We last left off with Mr. E, who was in Dry Dry Outpost. 
Our next target is Miss T., one of the three female toads in front of the dojo 
in Toad Town. She is the Toad with the orange dotted head. Give her the letter. 
She'll ramble about how she gets letters from people she doesn't know. Our next 
letter is for Little Mouser, the owner of the Dry Dry Outpost Shop.

Take the Toad Town Tunnels and head left. Use the left pipe for Dry Dry 
Outpost. Go to the shop and give Little Mouser the letter. He'll give you a 
letter for a Boo called Franky. Go back to Toad Town Tunnels. Fall down the 
hole to your right at the main area and head left to use the pipe leading to 
Boo's Mansion. Franky will be the first Boo you see upon entering the mansion. 
Give him the letter and he'll give you a letter for Dane T., a Toad near the 
Toad Town Station.

At Toad Town, go east from the train and you'll see two small Toads. Dane T. is 
the one with the red dotted head. Our next letter will be for the Red Yoshi Kid 
in Yoshi's Village. Ok, head back to Toad Town Tunnels and...

Whoops, got carried away there.

If you got the Last Stand Badge as Peach, go to Merluvee's house and pick it up 
out of the chest. Otherwise, there's nothing much else to do, except get more 
badges from Merlow if you want, or answer more Chuck Quizmo questions.
******************************************************************************* 
 
Go to the Toad Town Port with Watt as your partner. Make sure you have the 
Hammer Throw Badge equipped. At the port, go to the lower dock and walk on top 
of the whale. Spin jump and the whale will come out of the water.

The funny part is Kolorado keeps calling him a tuna when it's actually a whale. 
The whale says he's got a stomachache and he wants us to fix it. Go inside his 
mouth. In here, head into the next area and you'll see a weird looking Fuzzy.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
MINI BOSS: Fuzzipede
HP: 20
Attack: 3
Defense: 0

Fuzzipede will do a 3 HP attack every turn. You must have Watt as your partner 
or else the area will be dark and you cannot attack him. On the first turn, 
he'll be on a crate, meaning you can jump on him. After that, he'll be on the 
ceiling. The only ways you can hit him are A) Star Storm, B) Electro Dash, and 
C) Hammer Throw. Keep using these attacks every turn and he'll be gone in no 
time.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After a little chat, ask the whale to take you to Lavalava Island. Kolorado 
will join you, and you'll ride across the ocean on a whale.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
Chapter 5: Hot Hot Times on Lavalava Island 
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 

Twink has given us the location of the next Star Spirit, located here. We are 
now past halfway with the Star Spirits.

I like the Yoshi's Island theme song remix here.

Kolorado immediately bolts off and we must follow him. Enter the area to your 
right. Kolorado seems to be getting attacked here. Head right and you'll see a 
letter on a giant rock. Pick it up, as it's for Igor (the owner of Boo's shop). 
Help out by destroying the Jungle Fuzzies. The difference with these fuzzies is 
that you must keep tapping A to shake them off. Keep heading right and you'll 
see a blue flower with coins floating above. Smash the tree to the right of it 
for a Star Piece. Before leaving this joint, notice the purple bell plants near 
the trees. Go to the one on the left and use Watt to reveal an invisible block. 
Hit it to grab a Repel Gel. Now go to the bell plant on the right and use Watt 
to reveal the other invisible block to get a Mystery?. The bell plants will 
always have a hidden block next to them just so you know. Now we can go right 
into the next area. 

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

||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: When you enter this area, head down and walk around the 
island. Take the ramp up to a platform. Now you'll see another platform with a 
statue on it. Get to this platform. Spin jump in front of the statue for a 
hidden Star Piece.
||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
 
After you get the hidden star Piece, go down the ramp to your right and then 
head right into the next area. You'll be in the center of the area. See that 
Red Yoshi kid in the back of the area? If you've been doing my chain letters, 
talk to him and give him the letter. He'll give you another later for Dane T., 
but we're not doing that. Rest in the Toad House/Toad Shack if you need to, 
because Mario will need to get used to sleeping under leaves for this chapter. 
Also, there is a shop here.

Snowman Doll (15 coins) 
Thunder Rage (15 coins) 
Fire Flower (5 coins) 
Tasty Tonic (2 coins) 
Honey Syrup (6 coins) 
Super Shroom (15 coins)

Save if you need to, and head right into the next area.

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

Kolorado will be mugged by a Spear Guy here. Yeah, we got nature loving Shy 
Guys too. The trick to battling Spear Guys is jump when their spears are 
pointing at you, and hammer them when they're pointing up. After rescuing 
Kolorado once again, he'll take off. Head right until you see an enormous tree. 
If you walk around the right side of it, you'll find Jammin Jelly, an item that 
restores 50FP! Now head right and talk to Kolorado and you'll get a good look 
at Mt. Lavalava. We can't get into it now, so head back to Yoshi's Village. 
Kolorado will get attacked AGAIN. Nope, false alarm. Let's have somebody mug us 
and see how he likes it. Wow, what's with the psycho music? And why are all the 
Yoshis here acting psycho? 
 
Well, it seems the Yoshi kids have fled somewhere, and we've got to rescue 
them. Save and then head left into the next area. Head up and examine the 
bushes and they'll open. Continue through them and head right into the next 
area. You'll hear someone scream. Cross the vine and you'll see the fish, Sushi 
up in the tree. Smash it three times and you'll get Sushi out. After a little 
chat, he'll join the party. Head right over the next fine. Get to the dock and 
use C-Down to swim in the water. Use C-Down to swim underneath the water and 
get under the vine. Get on the platform with the Star Piece. Pick it up and 
smash the tree for a letter for Russ T. Now if you swim to the left, you'll see 
a Bub-ulb. Logically, we can get the 4th seed and go to Flower Fields, but he 
needs more time to bloom.
 
Swim back to the dock and go to where we first met Sushi. Cross the vines, past 
the tree, and go back left to the previous area. Back in here, go to the dock 
and swim to the middle of the area. Get on the platform. Take out the Spear Guy 
and hit the red "?" block for a Power Quake Badge. Now get back swimming and 
swim into the next area. Continue to swim left and use the dock to get back on 
the platform. Cross the right fine and then head down for a Super Block, taking 
out the Spear Guy. Use the super block to upgrade Sushi. Now go back to the 
dock, and then head up north into the next area. In this area, examine the line 
of bushes and they'll open.

Use the dock to your left. Swim left and get into the next area. Once you enter 
this area, swim onto the dock. Head left and smash the tree stump. It'll come 
out of the ground and it'll form a bridge. Cross the bridge and you'll find a 
light blue Yoshi crying. Talk to him and he'll return back home. It seems they 
were playing hide and seek and this Yoshi was it. As you cross the bridge, 
you'll notice a star piece under water. Get back swimming and go to where the 
Star Piece is. Hit C-Down to go underwater and collect the Star Piece. Now go 
back right into the previous area.

Back in this area, jump on the dock. Go right and you'll find a flower. Jump on 
it and keep tapping Z. The flower will launch you up onto the higher platform. 
Take out the Spear Guy and examine the bushes twice to reveal a pipe. You'll 
enter a dark area. Have Watt light up the area and jump up the steps. Talk to 
Green Yoshi and he'll leave. You should leave too. Switch back to Sushi and 
drop back down to the ground below you. Get to the dock and swim to the dock to 
your right. Cross the vine and smash the tree stump to form a bridge. Cross the 
bridge. Continue right into the next area and you'll find Yellow Yoshi being 
attacked by two Parana Plants. Fight them and after you beat them, Yellow Yoshi 
will go back home. Now go back left into the previous area.

Cross the vine and you'll see a dock. Swim to the dock in front of you. Now go 
down into the next area. You'll hear the sounds of someone sleeping. Smash the 
tree to the left and a purple Yoshi will fall out. He'll talk to you and leave. 
Go down and cross the vine. Hit the tree stump at the end to form a bridge. 
Cross the bridge and go right back into Yoshi Village.

Heal and save if needed. There's still one more Yoshi we need to rescue. From 
here, backtrack to where the whale took you to get onto this island. In this 
area, go jump on top of the rock in the back. Now use the rock to get on the 
other side of the bush. Head up to the next area and you'll hear the sound of 
crying. Go up north and examine the bushes to open a path. Now go up and 
examine the second bush on the left and you'll be attacked by an M. Bush. 
You'll have to face four of them and they can poison you. After the fight, go 
through the opening and examine the bush in front of the tree. It will turn 
around and you'll find the Red Yoshi. Now you've saved all Yoshis!

After you have all five Yoshis saved, go talk to the chief Yoshi (the fattest 
one). He is located near the statue where the hidden Star Piece was. Talk to 
him and he'll reward you with a Jade Raven. Now go back to the center of 
Yoshi's Village. Go left into the next area. Back in here, cross the stump and 
then work your way over the vine and up into the next area. Now swim into the 
water and go under the tree stump. Now swim onto the platform and put the Jade 
Raven in the statue. It will move to the left, revealing an exit, so go through 
it.

In this area, jump up to the tree. Jump on the vine to the right of it and an 
Egg will fall out. Now take out the Spear Guy to the right and go to where the 
pink bulb is. Examine the bush to the right of it and it will reveal a path in 
front of you, so take it. I hate the puzzle here. Go right and you'll see a 
water sprout coming from the ground. Push the block to cover it and it will 
create another water sprout. Cover the sprout with another block and it'll 
create a third sprout. Cover this one and a sprout will form on the left side 
of the area. Cover this one and one will form to your right. Cover this one up 
and a water sprout will lift up a rock. REMEMBER, USE BLOCKS THAT AREN'T 
COVERING HOLES. Cover this water sprout with a rock to get into the next area.

In this area, jumping on the vines will cause something to happen. Jump on the 
vine on the tree in front of you and a Fire Flower will drop down. Go right to 
the other side of the area. There are two trees here. The vine on the right 
tree makes a Mushroom fall out and the left vine opens the bushes for the next 
path, so go into this area.

||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: Upon entering this area, go to the right of the two heart 
plants. Spin jump around this area for a hidden Star Piece.
||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
 
Continue right from the Star Piece and you'll hear screaming. Continue right 
and you'll find Parana Plants waiting for you. Use Bombette to blow them up for 
a first strike. You'll notice a White Magikoopa with them too. I'd take this 
out first, since it can heal itself and the Pirana Plants. Use Power Bomb to 
dispose of them in 2-3 turns. Defeating them will cause a lot of coins to 
appear too. After, head right into the next area.

You'll see a huge tree with an opening in front of you. Go through the opening. 
Save your game inside the tree and go up all the stairs. At the top, go through 
the opening. You'll be outside. Climb up the vine and pick up the Happy Heart 
Badge at the end (restores HP randomly during battle). Now go back to the 
opening you skipped. Jump up all the stairs and go through the opening at the 
top to get back outside. Go right and talk to Raphael the Raven. He'll order 
the little Ravens to make a structure to go to Mt. Lavalava. Follow them by 
jumping off the ledge without a fence.

Talk to Raphael and he'll solve a vine problem by pounding the ground to make 
it go up. Follow him into the next area. Once again, go right and talk to him. 
The little Ravens will make a little basket to take you to Mt. Lavalava. Now 
Raphael will give you an Ultra Stone, which allows you to upgrade your party 
members a SECOND time. Jump on the basket and you'll be taken to the tree. At 
the top, go right and jump on the rope and you'll be taken to Mt. Lavalava. Use 
the Heart Block and enter.

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

Continue heading right and a Paranha Plant will detect you and report it to his 
boss. Now just head right into the next area. You'll meet up with Kolorado. 
He'll sink into the lava by standing on a platform too long. That's exactly 
what will happen to you if you stand on a platform too long. Jump across all of 
them until you reach a dead end. Wait for the sliding platform to come to you 
and then jump on it. Let it take you to the next area. Keep jumping across the 
platforms and then go through the opening at the end.

Jump on the rope and it'll take you across the area. At the end, head right 
into the next area. Jump over the fire ropes (like the Koopa Bros. Fortress, if 
you want coins out of them, keep jumping over them until they die out. At the 
end of this room is a Super Block. Use it to upgrade Sushi and Sushi only to 
Ultra Rank. Now leave this room. Back in this area, head left and jump over the 
steps. Watch out for the Spike Tops. Continue left until you get to a spring. 
Don't jump on it. Go right down the stairs. At the bottom, save your game and 
then take the rope down to the ground below you.
 
Down here, go through the opening to your left. Go down the slope and left into 
the next area. Jump onto the platform above you. On here, head left and let 
Parakarry fly you over the lava. Push all three blue blocks into the water and 
the lava will die down. Go back down to the lower level and have Parakarry fly 
you over the water. Now go left into the next area. Make sure both blue blocks 
are on the same row and then push both into the lava. Use them to fly over the 
lava. Take out the lava bubble on the other side. Now jump to the higher 
platform. Open the chest and you'll get the Ultra Hammer! Now you can knock out 
any block and you have an upgraded hammer. Test it out by smashing the block to 
your right and then leave this room.

Fly over the lava. Instead of going up the stairs, take the stairs leading 
downwards. Fly over the lava with Parakarry. Take out the Putrid Paranha and 
jump up the stairs. Open the chest for the Dizzy Stomp Badge, which can make 
enemies dizzy if you jump on them (useful against a later boss). Fly back over 
the lava and leave this room. Go back up the stairs in this area. In this room, 
just go right up the slope into the next area. In this area, continue right 
until you get to a spring. Use the spring to bounce up onto the platform above 
you.

Before smashing the block, go down the rope. Jump before halfway and you should 
land on a platform with a Fire Shield Badge, a badge that makes the damage 
Mario takes from fire attacks go down by 1. If not, try again until you land on 
it. Fire Shield and Ice Power are absolutely needed for the boss fight (and the 
Fire Bubbles around here). Get back to the platform above you. Save your game 
and smash the block. Now go through the new opening. Kolorado will come in and 
fall to the ground below. Ride on the rope. About halfway, you'll see a lighter 
wall that is brighter than the others. This is where you jump off. You should 
land on a platform with a Super Block. If not, go back up and try again.

When you get it, use it to upgrade Goombario or Bombette. After, drop down to 
the ground to your right.
 
||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: From the right of the super block, use your Ultra Hammer to 
keep smashing the ground until you find the hidden panel.
||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
 
After finding the hidden Star Piece and getting the Super Block, exit the room 
to your left. Bounce back up to the platform above you and save your game. Jump 
on the rope again. This time, ride it to the other side. At the other side, 
head right into the next area and a spiked ball will go after you. If you have 
Speedy Spin on, you can out-spin the ball into the next area. If not, let Bow 
make you invisible and you're good.

Use the moving platform to get over to the platform to your right. On here, 
head right and jump over the fire ropes. Fight the Lava Bubbles if you want. At 
the end of the platform, use the sliding platform to get to an opening and then 
go through it. In this area, take out the Spike Top and Putrid Piranha if you 
want. Now go all the way right and push the blue block so it's up against the 
platform to your left. Get Bow out and smash all the ultra stones. The spiked 
ball will come after you, so let Bow make you invisible. The ball takes out 
Kolorado and makes a new opening, so go through it.

In this area, go all the way right and Kolorado will get back up, saying the 
treasure is near here.

||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: After Kolorado bolts off, smash the floor to your south and 
east near the Heart Block until you find the hidden Star Piece.
||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
 
YES! A Heart Block! It's the miracle of life! I was about to die too. Refill 
all your energy and head into the opening to your right. Bash the "?" blocks 
for a Super Shroom and Maple Syrup and then leave the room. In here, head down 
the stairs. At the bottom, save your game and then head all the way right and 
the Piranha Plant will see you again. Head right into the next area. In this 
room, continue right and you'll see a Piranha Plant come out of the lava. This 
is your boss fight.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
BOSS: Lava Piranha
HP: 40
Attack: 5
Defense: 0

This is where you need Ice Power/Fire Shield. What you want to do is attack the 
Lava Piranha with Mario and use Sushi's Tidal Wave to knock out the lava buds 
for the round. The Lava Piranha can shoot fire at you for 5 HP, while the buds 
can do it for 4 HP each. Once the Lava Buds are gone, just go all out on Lava 
Piranha until you knock him out. You'll be victorious until...

Come on! Everybody pops out of the lava, restored to full HP. However, having 
to drain the Lava Piranha of another 40 HP isn't that bad as you think. In 
fact, it may be easier. The one difference in part 2 of this battle is that the 
Lava Piranha and the Lava Buds are no on fire, which means Mario cannot jump on 
these enemies without wearing the Ice Power or Fire Shield Badge.

After one turn, Kolorado will try to come in to the rescue, but will run into 
the lava in the process. Well, so much for that.

In Part 2, the truck is to use Sushi's Tidal Wave while all of the Piranha 
enemies are on fire. Not only does this deal extra damage (due to the Piranhas 
being on fire), but all of the enemies will be stunned!

Now, while the Piranhas are stunned, they will not be on fire, so it would be 
safe to jump on them while they are stunned. Just be reminded that you won't 
get an attack bonus from water attacks while the enemies are stunned. When this 
happens, just use normal attacks so that you can save FP for later on in the 
battle.

The enemies will be stunned for one turn. Afterwards, the Lava Buds will 
regenerate their 8 HP and the Lava Piranha will also spring back to attack, 
getting back on fire in the process too.

Just keep fighting, keep using water attacks while the Piranha Plants are on 
fire, and you'll win the battle in no time.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
 
After the fight, Kolorado will disappear in the next area to find the treasure. 
You on the other hand, will rescue the Star Spirit. Walk up to him and you'll 
be shy of two Star Spirits. You won't switch to Peach's castle yet. Misstar 
will tell you the lava is rising and we must escape. Follow her into the next 
room. Head up the stairs. Kolorado will go back down and look for the treasure 
only to be burned by lava. Use Bombette to blow up the hole to your right. In 
here, head up the stairs. At the top, Kolorado will find the treasure, but 
since you're about to be burned into oblivion any second, Misstar takes you out 
of the volcano. It will erupt and shoot the treasure somewhere. Save your game 
here.

PRINCESS PEACH'S CASTLE 
Peach is in a mood to sneak out of the room again. You know what that means. 
Use the secret passage and get out of here. Out in the main hall, enter the 
door to the other main hall. Head down the stairs. At the bottom, avoid the 
guards and go up the staircase to your left and open the door at the top. A 
guard will spot Peach in this room, but it appears she came at the right time 
for a quiz show. You must hit A to buzz in after the question is asked to 
answered, or else someone else will answer it.

Koopa Corps. Presents...The 64th Trivia Quiz-Off!

Mr. Hammer is the host, and Peach is confused as hell. Here are the answers.

1. Lava Piranha
2. Flower Fields
3. Chomp
4. Pass Flower Gate
5. Princess Peach
6. Flower
7. Bowser
8. Boo
9. The Flower Garden
10. On Bowser's Castle

If you answer the most questions correctly out of anyone, you earn a Jammin' 
Jelly (you can't put it in the chest yet, because you'll be captured shortly). 
You'll automatically earn a Sneaky Parasol for participating. You'll be using 
this after next chapter.

Bowser comes in, wanting to join the quiz show, but it's already over. Bowser 
spots Peach and wants her back in her room, and the Hammer Bros. feels sorry 
for her.

BACK TO THE MAIN ADVENTURE 
Kolorado is sobbing over the lost treasure, and Misstar scolds him to be 
thankful for getting out alive. She'll give you a 5th star energy meter 
(purple) and give you a new ability, Smooch, which uses 3 meters but increases 
HP by 30! After, go back to Yoshi's Village. From here, go to where you got 
Sushi as a partner (go left, through bushes, go right, over the vine). This is 
where the treasure is. Open the chest here for a Volcano Vase. Bring it back to 
Kolorado and he'll reward you with the 4th Magical Bean. Now follow him to the 
area with the whale.

Before going on the whale, de-equip your Ice Power/Fire Shield Badges. Put on 
either Spike Shield or Hammer Throw, and make sure Sushi is your partner. Talk 
to the whale to go back to Toad Town. On your way to Toad Town, you'll see Jr. 
Troopa swim up to the island, but you'll take off the at last second. Then he 
notices you're Toad Town Bound and starts chasing you again.

Back at Toad Town, Jr. Troopa will catch up to you and fight him.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
MINI BOSS: Jr. Troopa IV
HP: 20
Attack: 6
Defense: 1

At the beginning of the battle, Jr. Troopa's HP will be cut in half thanks to 
all that swimming. But this time he can fly AND have a spike on his head. This 
is where Spike Shield/Hammer Throw comes in. If not, use Star Storm when it's 
Mario's turn. Use Squirt when it's Sushi's and he'll be gone in no time.

******************************************************************************* 
POST CHAPTER 5 SIDE QUESTS 
 
With a new partner, a new hammer, and many other items, we can do a lot more 
side quests now. More badges at Rowf's Shop and more Koopa Koot favors for you. 
Of course, letters to deliver. First, we'll start off with a new mini boss. At 
the center of Toad Town, you'll notice Kolorado is here, saying the path to 
Pleasant Path is blocked. Save your game and if you have the Sleep Stomp Badge, 
equip it. Heal at the Toad House if necessary.

At Pleasant Path, head right to find a giant Koopa named Kent C. Koopa. We're 
not going to pay 100 coins just to pass, so select fight twice.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
MINI BOSS: Kent C. Koopa
HP: 70
Attack: 10
Defense: 6

Yes, this done look like an incredibly intimidating fight, but Kent C. Koopa 
does have one big vulnerability.

Kent has a ridiculously high defense, but it can be negated with a D-Down 
Pound. Also, he packs quite a punch. He can squish you for 10 HP, or hit you 
for 3 HP and knock out your partner for 3 turns. If you defend right on this 
attack, your partner won't get hurt. But there is a glaring weakness in him: 
sleep. If you got Sleep Stomp on, attack him with it when he's standing 
upright. If not, Sleepy Sheep can knock him out. Otherwise, your last resort is 
Mamar's Lullaby. He'll be gone for 4 turns.

When he is flipped over, you can attack him in two places. ATTACK HIM ON THE 
LEFT SIDE (side next to his tail) OR YOU WON'T DO ANY DAMAGE. While he's 
asleep, just keep attacking him on the left side and you can do up to 30-40 HP 
of damage while he's asleep. When he wakes up, he will still be on his back. 
You can either attack him or put him back to sleep. He'll get up the next turn 
and instantly attack you. From here, you can put him to sleep again and finish 
him off.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
 
After you fight him, we can continue delivering letters. Go over to Russ T's 
house and give him the letter for a Star Piece. Also, go down to the Toad Town 
Station and give Dane T. the letter. He'll give you a letter for Frost T., a 
Toad up in Starborn Valley, but that's 2 chapters away. So we only progress one 
letter in the chain. Go to Toad Town Tunnels and get to Boo's Mansion. Go down 
to the shop and give Igor a letter for a Star Piece. With no more letters to 
deliver at the time, we can always look for more Super Blocks, since we can now 
upgrade our partners to ultra rank.

-Our first super block will be in Toad Town Tunnels. Go to where you unlocked 
the pipe to Boo's Mansion. Head into the room to your left, with Watt as your 
partner. You'll see a long gap between a platform and another platform with a 
Super Block. Let Watt light the way to reveal the hidden blocks. But the blue 
block under each hidden block, and then jump to make it visible. Once you've 
revealed all 3, let Parakarry fly you over the gaps. Use it to upgrade anyone 
you want.

-Our next super block is near the main Toad Town entrance. Go to the area with 
the pipe that leads to your house. You'll see a pipe in the middle of the 
water. Go to where the three female Toads are and you'll see a dock. Use the 
dock to swim across the water (don't go to the pipe yet). On the other side of 
the water, pick up the Star Piece. Now go to the pipe and enter it. Down here, 
head all the way right and jump onto the higher ledge. On here, head right and 
use the super block to upgrade somebody.

Now, we can also unlock a pipe to Lavalava Island into Yoshi's Village. Go to 
Toad Town Tunnels and fall through the hole. Down here, swim to the right and 
land on the dock. The third blooper will come out of the water. I'd equip Quick 
Change for this fight if I were you.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
MINI BOSS: Super Blooper 
HP: 70
Attack: 5
Defense: 0

This should be a straightforward mini-boss. Super Blooper can squirt ink at you 
for 5 HP. Sometimes, it will squirt out Blooper Babies. Dispose of these with 
Star Storm, as they got 6 HP each. The thing that sucks is that you can't get 
star points off them. Super Blooper can also turn red, and that means on the 
next turn he'll do a double attack for 20HP! With Quick Change, this is the 
signal to switch to Bow and have her use Outta Sign. If you do get hit, use 
Smooch for 20 HP. His last attack is a head spin for 5 HP.
 
Use your best attacks every turn. Goombario and Sushi are good partners for 
this fight. Keep mowing his HP, heal when needed, use Star Storm when you have 
the chance, and you'll eventually triumph.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
 
Defeating the Super Blooper allows you to hit a switch to open a pipe leading 
to Lavalava Island. Now, go right into the next area. You can't do much here, 
but head right to the other side of the room, dodging the Dark Koopas (they 
shouldn't give Star Points at this point of the game due to your level). At the 
other side of the room, you'll see a "?" block that's too high in the air for 
you to jump on. Just go through the opening to your right. In this area, drop 
down to the floor below you. Down here, enter the pipe at the other side of the 
room. Now let Bombette blow up the wall to your right and go through the 
opening. You'll find a guy named Rip Cheato, who sells everything for 64 coins. 
You cannot buy the items individually and need to get them in a certain order. 
Here is the list below. For now, go up the pipe to your right.

1. Star Piece
2. Life Shroom
3. Bump Attack Badge
4. Repel Gel
5. Star Piece
6. Super Shroom
7. Mushroom
8. Dried Shroom
9. Dried Shroom
10. Star Piece

After you buy 10 items from him, all future items will be just Dried Shrooms.

You should notice a key behind a crate. Pick it up and use it to open the 
locked door. Now do you wonder what the house to the left of Tayce T's house 
was? This is a good shortcut for later on. That's all I have for the side 
quests for now.
******************************************************************************* 
 
Now that you're in Toad Town, go to the center of town. Give the girl the four 
magical seeds and a door will form. Open the door to start the next chapter.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 
Chapter 6: Dark Days in Flower Fields
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

Bowser's minions are causing trouble in this area, and it's up to us to stop 
the trouble. The clouds have been looming over Flower Fields, blocking the 
sunlight and making the area unhappy.

You'll be greeted by that tree called Wise Wisterwood. He'll explain about 
everything that's going on. There are six exits you can take here. Take the 
east exit. In this area, you'll see three trees. Hit them in this order: 
middle, right, left. A Happy Flower Badge will fall out, so collect it. 
Continue east into the next area, taking out the Crazee Dayzees here. Wow, we 
got some badass music playing this area. Head to the middle and you'll find a 
pissed off flower. Talk to her and she'll tell you that the Monty Moles are 
running her garden. You need to defeat the four Monty Moles.

The trick is to sneak up on them and whack them with your hammer, since they 
escape fast to a different location. If not, spin into them to start a fight. 
After all four are taken out, talk to Petunia and she'll give you a Magical 
Bean, which is used for the end of the chapter.
 
||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: After finishing off the Monty Moles, keep whacking your 
hammer to the left of Petunia and you'll find the Star Piece without a problem.
||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
 
Before leaving this area, smash the tree and two Red Berries will fall out. 
Pick up both of them. Leave this area and go back to the center of Flower 
Fields. Save your game and then use the southwest exit. You'll see a red flower 
guarding a gate. Feed her a red berry and she'll open it for you (nothing else 
will work). What to do with the other red berry? If you ever need 5 HP to cure, 
use it. From here, head left until you get to a tree, taking out the Ruff Puffs 
and Bzzaps. Once you get to a tree, smash it for two Yellow Berries.
 
||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: Smash the ground in front of the tree and you should find 
this easy Star Piece.
||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
 
After getting the Star Piece, head left into the next area. You'll find a 
flower and a crystal tree. The flower's name is Posie, and she'll give you 
Fertile Soil. Now, leave and go back to the center of the area. This time, take 
the southeast path. Give one of the yellow berries to the yellow flower and 
she'll open the gate for you. Now jump over the first few platforms and then 
let Parakarry fly you over the spikes. You could go up the stairs and get the 
super block, but please save that for our upcoming partner, Lakilester. Smash 
the tree to your right for two Blue Berries. Make sure you pick up both. Pick 
up the Star Piece hidden in the flowers to the right, and then head right into 
the next area.

In this area, hit the "?" block for a Dizzy Dial and head down the stairs. At 
the bottom, go right up the next set of stairs.

||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: At the top of the stairs, go to the right exit but don't 
take it yet. Go up past the flowers and the use your hammer to smash the ground 
until you find the hidden Star Piece.
||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
 
After finding the hidden star piece, head right into the next area. Fall into 
the pit to your right and talk to the flower named Lily. She will tell you to 
look for the water stone since her area of Flower Fields is all dried up. Head 
up the stairs. Follow the circular path in counter-clockwise form until you 
find a tree. Smash it for Jammin' Jelly. Leave this area and backtrack to the 
center of Flower Fields.

Take the eastern path again and get to where you found Petunia. Back in this 
area, head into the area to your right. You'll be in an area with dead trees. 
Walk up to the well and press A. Throw a Blue Berry into the well and the 
person inside will throw a Flower Saver to you, so pick it up (uses 6 BP but 
all moves require one less BP). If you throw any other berry down there, the 
person inside will make you fight someone. Now go back to the middle of Flower 
Fields. This time, take the west exit. Give your other blue berry to the flower 
and she'll open the gate. Take out the Spiny to your left. Head left and you'll 
find a spring. Use Watt to reveal an invisible block and then hit it. Jump on 
the spring to get on the block. On here, jump over to the brick block and then 
jump to reveal a Shooting Star.

Now continue left and take out the Spiny. Head left into the next area. In this 
area, go left and you'll see two Lakitus looking for a Water Stone they dropped 
somewhere, and then they'll spot you. You have to fight both of them. With 
Lakitus, they can throw Spinies at you and throw Spinies onto the field. Take 
them out first with a Star Storm, and then go after the Lakitus.

Now we've got to go through an annoying maze. Head left until you bump into a 
bush. Head up north and follow the path until you run into a bush. Instead of 
going up to get to a pipe, go left and follow this path until you see another 
path to your south. Go through the bush and take this path. Now head down south 
until you see a path to your right. Take the right path and you'll see a pink 
pipe above you. To get to this pipe, go to the bushes to the right of the pipe. 
Walk through the bush and then get to the pipe and enter it. Head left and 
you'll find a flower called Rosie. She has a Water Stone, but she wants a trade 
for it. Now backtrack to the center of Flower Fields.

Go to where you found Posie (flower that gave you Fertile Soil. Talk to her and 
she'll shake the tree, causing the Crystal Berry to fall out. Now bring it back 
to Rosie (use same maze path I mentioned above). Give the Crystal Berry to 
Rosie and she'll give you the Water Stone in return. Now go back to the middle 
of Flower Fields. Take the southeast path, head right, fly over the spikes, 
head right into the next area, and then down and up the stairs and into the 
next area. Fall into the pit and Lily will tell you to put the Water Stone in 
the hole. Walk up to it and do so. It will fill up all the dry pits with water, 
making this place look good as new again. She'll reward you with Miracle Water. 
Now, we've got the three items to go to Cloudy Climb, but we're missing the 
sunshine. Go back into the previous area.

Since it has been filled up with water, go to the dock and let Sushi swim you 
to the platform with the lone tree on it. Smash the tree for a Bubble Berry. 
Now backtrack to the center of Flower Fields. Save your game and take the 
northwest path. Talk to the flower and give her a bubble berry. She'll create a 
bubble and you can jump in the bubble to sail across the pit of spikes. At the 
end, head up the stairs and walk through the log. Pick up the Star Piece at the 
end. Now go back down the steps and continue left. Walk through the log. Now 
head left into the next area.

Avoid the Lakitu and then head up the stairs. At the top, use Bombette to blow 
up the rock. Walk to where the rock used to be and then fall through it. Pick 
up the Mega Smash Badge, which is the best hammer attack in the game. Now fall 
to the ground and continue left into the next area. Before going up the spiral 
stairs, walk around the area in clockwise form. Go through the opening and use 
Bombette to blow up the rock inside. It will cause a platform to lower on the 
spiral stairs. Head up the spiral stairs and you'll find a sun at the top 
(wouldn't your ass be burned with flying colors at this point?). After talking 
to the sun, go back down the stairs and go back into the area to your right.

Continue right and a Lakitu named Lakilester will stop you. Because of Huff 'n' 
Puff, he'll have to fight you.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
MINI BOSS: Lakilester
HP: 50
Attack: 4
Defense: 0

Wow, can't you believe you're fighting a soon to be partner of yours? 
Lakilester's only move he uses is that he throws Spinies at you for 4 HP. 
Because of that, this is pretty much a straightforward fight. Just keep jumping 
on him with you and your partner, heal when needed, and use Star Storm when you 
have the chance.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
 
After the fight, his girlfriend Lakilulu will try to break up the fight. 
Lakilester tries to convince everyone his name is Spike, but we don't buy it. 
Since he was under Huff 'n' Puff's orders, let's forgive them. Lakilester will 
ask you a question. Pick whatever one you want; it doesn't matter. After, he'll 
join your team. With Lakilester, we can surf across pits of spikes and lava. 
Head right to the next area. Let Lakilester take you over the spike pit. Now, 
we've got to leave Flower Fields for the time being, but before doing so, take 
the southeast exit. Go over the spike pit. At the end, head up the stairs. At 
the top, hack away through all the Crayzee Dayzees and hit the Super Block at 
the end. Use it to upgrade Lakilester.

Go back to the center of Flower Fields and save your game. Talk to Wise 
Wisterwood so you can leave this place to go to Toad Town.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
TOAD TOWN TUNNELS ERRANDS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our progress in Flower Fields has been impeded because the next area requires 
boots we don't have yet. So we need to go down to Toad Town Tunnels and find 
them. Once you're in Toad Town Tunnels, fall through the hole in front of you. 
Down here, swim across the water to your right with Sushi. If you didn't follow 
my side quests, you'll face one of the three bloopers here. Now go through the 
opening to your right. Jump on the ledge in front of you. Now use Lakilester to 
surf across the pit of spikes. At the end, go down the pipe. Down here, follow 
the path to a stone block, taking out the Spinies as you go. Hit the "?" block 
for a coin and smash the stone block. Go through the opening to your left.

In here, take out the Dark Koopas. You'll notice the "?" blocks are too high in 
the air for you to reach, so continue left and shatter the ultra stone at the 
end and then go through the opening. Bash the brick block to make a spring fall 
down, and then use the spring to get to the other side of the room. Open the 
big chest and you'll find the Ultra Boots! With these, your jumping power 
increases by 1 and you can do tornado jumps, which can make you jump higher 
than regular jumping. Test it out by hitting A twice on the brick block to your 
right to make the spring fall down, and then go back to the previous room. See 
the brick and "?" blocks? You'll notice a gap between two brick blocks. Tornado 
jump between these two blocks and you'll find a hidden block with a Life 
Shroom. Go back into the previous room.

Use Watt to light up the area and two invisible blocks will be revealed. One 
has a Maple Syrup and the other has a Stop Watch. Now from here, go in the pipe 
and backtrack to Flower Fields.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
BACK IN FLOWER FIELDS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

With the new Ultra Boots, take the northeast path and you'll need to deal with 
an annoying puzzle in this area. Head right and you'll find a series of colored 
platforms. When you tornado jump on certain platforms, they'll cause some 
platforms to rise and some to drop. Get on the first red platform. Here are a 
set of instructions.

1. Do a tornado jump on the first red platform you see.
2. After, use Lakilester to travel across the spike pit and you'll see a green 
platform lower than any other platform. Tornado jump on it.
3. Tornado jump on the purple platform to the left of the green one that you 
just hit.
4. Go back to the left side of the spike pit. You'll see a red and a green 
platform. Tornado jump on the green platform.
5. Go back right across the spike pit to where the lowered green/purple 
platforms are. Tornado jump on the green one to make it rise.
6. After it rises, tornado jump on the purple platform on the left, to make it 
rise to the ground to your right.

After you've done these six steps (if you mess up, leave and re-enter the 
area), head right. Take out the Ruff Puffs here. Before heading into the next 
area, look at the arches. Enter the right one and you'll see a spring to your 
left. Although the opening is not visible from our viewpoint, go left and 
bounce on the spring. Up here, go left and use the super block to upgrade 
Lakilester to Ultra Rank.

|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: From the Super Block, go all the way right to the other side 
of the platform and you should be above the arch on the right side. You can't 
get this with your hammer, so tornado jump above the arch and a Star Piece will 
fall to the ground. Pick it up.
||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
 
After getting the Star Piece, head right and go into the next area. In this 
area, cross the log in front of you. Before heading right, go to the orange 
flowers and get the letter (kind of easy to overlook). avoid the Lakitu and go 
all the way right until you're on the other side of this area, crossing through 
the logs and flowers. Head right into the next area. You'll find a yellow 
Magikoopa and three Lakitus who are working on the machine. Smash the machine 
twice and they'll notice you're Mario and then they'll jump you.

Take out the yellow Magikoopa first, as he can give enemies an electric charge 
(if you jump on them, you get hurt). After that, take out the Lakitus and heal 
when needed. Once you defeat them, they bolt off. Smash the left side of the 
machine four times and it'll exploud. This is the cloud machine which made the 
Flower Fields cloudy. This area will get sunshine and you'll see scenes of all 
the Flower Fields flowers happy. Now the music changes to a more peaceful tune. 
From here, backtrack to the middle of Flower Fields. Wise Wisterwood says you 
can plant the soil, bean, and water right now, but don't do it yet. Instead, go 
to Toad Town and heal at the house, and then go back to Flower Fields. Back in 
here, go to the patch of soil in the middle of the area.

Plant the items in this order: Fertile Soil, Magical Seed, Miracle Water, and 
then a huge beanstalk will form up into Cloudy Climb. Before climbing the 
beanstalk, save your game. Now jump on the big leaf and it'll take you up.

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

On your way up, you'll see donuts, lollipops, cherries, and ice cream in the 
form of clouds. Once you're at the top, go to the cloud moving up and down. Use 
it to get onto a higher cloud, and then pick up the S. Jump Chg. Badge. Now, 
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ENOUGH BP TO EQUIP QUICK CHANGE, BECAUSE YOU'LL WANT IT VERY 
SOON. I'd also equip badges like Pretty Lucky, Last Stand, Mega/Power Rush for 
this fight. Head right into the next area. In here, head right up the stairs 
and you'll see a weird lump. Walk up to it and Huff N. Puff will talk to you.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
BOSS: Huff N. Puff
HP: 60
Attack: 5
Defense: 0

I love the music here.

The first thing you want to know is when you hit Huff N. Puff, he'll shrink and 
form Tuff Puffs. The more damage you give to him in a single form, the more 
Tuff Puffs appear. If you don't finish them up, he'll swallow them and restore 
HP. When you have a lot of Tuff Puffs on the screen, use Lakilester's Spiny 
Surge to get rid of them. Try to do 1-2 HP with Spiny Surge to reduce the 
amount of Tuff Puffs that come out of Huff N. Puff afterwards. The Tuff Puffs 
will start ramming you for 2 HP each time they ram you, and you need to tap A 
fast to get rid of them.

Huff N. Puff will also blow wind at you, and to reduce the damage, keep taaping 
A. You'll take anywhere from 3-7HP. He'll also charge up an attack, and when he 
does this, use Quick Change to switch to Bow and use Outta Sight. If not, he'll 
use his devastating thunderbolt attack for 10HP! One other attack is that he'll 
sometimes squish you for 5HP.

The attack strategy for Huff N. Puff is tricky. Use your most powerful attacks 
as Mario, and when it's Lakilester's turn, use Spiny Surge to dispose of all 
the Tuff Puffs formed, but try to do 1 HP, as stated. Switch to Bow and use 
Outta Sight when needed. For example, Star Storm/Spiny Surge works well here. 
You'll be using a lot of FP here, so bring a LOT FP healing items like Maple 
Syrup. If you need HP, Smooch is always a good way around. Another strategy I 
use is that when he charges up, use Focus with Mario and Outta Sight with Bow. 
Since you can't use your partner the next turn, make sure you use Focus again 
the next turn to waste a turn and to make sure Huff N. Puff doesn't heal 
himself by inhaling plenty of Tuff Puffs.

One strategy I love to use when fighting Huff N. Puff is to use Lakilester's 
Cloud Nine ability. Using this ability will randomly protect Mario from Huff N. 
Puff's attacks for 1-4 turns. Again, the protection comes at random, so you 
will get hit sometimes and get lucky and completely miss the attack on other 
turns while Cloud Nine is still in effect. If you are going to use this attack, 
make sure A) it is on the very first turn of the battle or B) during any moment 
when there are a minimal amount of Tuff Puffs on the field.

Keep mowing him down, reduce the amount of Tuff Puffs, he'll when needed, and 
you'll finally succeed.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, that was a fun fight. After, your sixth Star Spirit appears. Run into the 
card. Save your game.

PRINCESS PEACH'S CASTLE 
This is the last time you control Peach, and this is very fun too. You can use 
the Sneaky Parasol to transform into other people. Get out of here using the 
usual shortcut. Get out in the main hall. If you got a Jammin' Jelly from the 
last time, go to the closet and dump it in the chest so Mario can get it later. 
Speaking of the chest, this is your last chance to put any badges into the 
chest, like the Last Stand, because if Peach hasn't done so yet (and she's 
collected them), Mario will never see them. But if you don't collect the badges 
as Peach, Mario can pick them up in their appropriate locations when he visits 
Peach's castle.

Anyhow, once you've got all that sorted out, sneak out into the hall. When a 
guard isn't looking at you, use B to use the sneaky parasol to transform into 
him. Note that this time, the guards are not searching and aren't on patrol in 
the main hallway, making it much easier to do so. Once you've transformed into 
a guard, go up either staircase on the main hall 2F. Talk to the guard blocking 
the door and he'll let you through. In this hallway, go right and up the 
stairs. At the top, talk to the guard blocking the door and he'll tell you his 
shift is over. He wants you to look for a Clubba that's supposed to be on duty. 
He'll give you a Castle Key. This will open up the locked door in the main hall 
1F.

Go back to the main hall 1F and head down the stairs. Use the key to unlock the 
door. Open it and you'll be outside. Out here, press B to transform back into 
Peach. There's the Clubba right next to you. If you talk to him as Peach, he 
won't notice you and go back to sleep (it's got the same personality from the 
Clubbas in Tubba Blubba's castle, what do you expect?). We can use that door 
next to us go to into Bowser's Castle, but it's locked sadly. Use the Sneaky 
Parasol to transform into him. Now go back to the 2F and talk to the guard who 
gave you the key. He'll flip out on you for being late and then let you go 
through the door.

In this room, head right and you'll notice the broken window form the beginning 
of the game still isn't fixed. Open the door on the far right side of the room. 
Head up both staircases in this room and open the door at the top. Walk across 
this walkway and about halfway through, Kammy will come out here. She'll pass 
by you and say to keep up the good work. After that, she'll notice you smell 
too nice (come on, what's wrong with having some good hygiene?). Then she 
reveals your true self and transforms you back into Princess Peach. She goes in 
a little uproar and like the past 150 times, you get tossed back in your room.

Go figure.

BACK TO THE MAIN ADVENTURE 
Klevar will introduce himself and tell you there's one Star Spirit remaining. 
He'll give you your sixth meter of Star Energy (pink) and give you an ability 
called Time Out. It works like a Stop Watch and can paralyze enemies for a few 
turns and it uses 2 star energy meters. Now leave this place and go back into 
Toad town. Remember that letter you picked up in Flower Fields? It's for Minh 
T., the female Toad that runs this garden. Give it to her using Parakarry for 
another Star Piece.

******************************************************************************* 
POST CHAPTER 6 SIDE QUESTS 
 
I honestly don't know something worthy of doing. We've already exhausted 
everything out in our previous side quests. We've done all of the letters and 
have gotten past the chain mails as far as we possibly could. Aside from that 
Koopa Koot has 3 extra favors, and believe me, these are the last ones you'll 
get out of her. You can always buy from Rowf/trade with Merlow/find Chuck 
Quizmo, but...AHA! Found a side quest! Head to Toad Town Tunnels. This time, 
go left into the 3 pipes area. Instead of taking any pipe, go in the room to 
your left. In this room, enter the pipe. In this room, drop down to the 
floor below you and go down the pipe to your right. Down here, smash the two 
ultra stones to get to a super block. Use it to upgrade anyone you want.

Also, go to Merluvee's and pick up the Jammin' Jelly inside the chest Peach 
left you.

Apart from that, we've exhausted every possibility.
*******************************************************************************

Go over to Merlon's house. It appears he has a guest. The guest comes from 
Starborn Valley and tells you to go over there. Go to Toad Town Tunnels, fall 
through the hall, swim to the right, go into next area, and go all the way 
right into next area. Use Watt in here to light up the area to see the 
invisible blocks. Torando jump to hit all of them. Now go on the higher 
platform and jump from block to block. Open the blue door at the end. Now go 
down the pipe in this room. In this cold room, go left and use the Super Block 
to upgrade a partner. Now go right and enter the pipe at the top of the stairs.

Chapter 7: A Star Spirit on Ice
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

There's one Star Spirit left and it's up to us to save it.

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

Now, in front of you are a shop and a Toad House if needed. Here's what's in 
the shop:

Dizzy Dial (15 coins) 
Shooting Star (30 coins) 
Snowman Doll (8 coins) 
Maple Syrup (20 coins) 
Life Shroom (40 coins) 
Super Shroom (20 coins)

Now, go left into the next area. In this area, open the first door you see. 
Jump on top of the drawer, then over the fireplace, over the bookshelf, the 
books, and you'll be on the top shelf. Open the lower window. Out here, jump 
over the small gap to your left onto another house. Open the window on the 
right. In this house, go down the stairs and open the chest for the Attack FX E 
Badge. Now go back upstairs and leave this room. Out here, drop down to the 
floor below you.

||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: After dropping down from the house, smash the ground to the 
left until you find the Star Piece.
|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||


From the hidden Star Piece, enter the house to your left. In this house, open 
the door in front of you and you'll find a guy knocked out on the ground. Talk 
to him and then his wife will come in and go psycho when he doesn't move. Then 
after a chat, they assume you killed him and then while you tell the truth, we 
have to go out and find the real "murderer". Leave this room and go to where 
the Shiver City entrance is. Now go to the right this time. Since no one's on 
the pond of ice, tornado jump on the ice three times to make it crack. Now take 
out Sushi and dive under the water to get the key. Use the key to unlock the 
door in front of you.

In this room, head up the stairs. Bounce off the spring at the top to get on 
the roof. Slide off the rooftop onto another house. On this house, jump inside 
the chimney. Talk to the penguin inside here. His name is Herringway and we all 
think he's the killer now. He'll make a staircase to go down, so go down it and 
leave the house. Follow him to the Mayor's house and then enter the room where 
the mayor was killed. After a while, the mayor gets up. Apparently, he slipped 
on the floor and got knocked out. The "Herringway" on his hand was a tag for 
the present. Now he'll grant you permission go to Starborn Valley. Go to the 
center of town, save your game, and head right. Over here, go right to the 
other side of the room and into the next area.

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

Head all the way to the right and you'll run into Jr. Troopa, who thinks he can 
beat you this time around.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
MINI BOSS: Jr. Troopa V
HP: 50
Attack: 8
Defense: 1

Jr. Troopa thinks he can take you out with a wand. He does 8 HP each turn for 
his only attack (like the sound effect). Your hammer will do 5 HP each turn. 
Now, heal when needed, because your HP will be down fast. Also, Goombario + 
Charge + Multibonk = win. Otherwise, just attack him every other turn and he'll 
be gone.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After the fight, head right into the next area. In this area, smash the big 
tree four times for a letter to come out. The letter is for the Mayor Penguin.

|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: In the southern part of this area, you'll find a tiny tree. 
Smash the ground to the left of the tree to find a Star Piece.
|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

After all that is done, head right into the next area. Now, go right until you 
find a set of steps. Before climbing up them, pick up the letter behind the 
glacier to your left. Now go up the steps. At the top, head right and you'll 
find a ghost. Pick the option to fight him.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
MINI BOSS: Monstar
HP: 20
Attack: 1
Defense: 0

Wow, I wonder what inspired Nintendo to add a boss like this late in the game. 
If you wanted to knock him out in one turn, you could try Power Bounce and 
Multibonk. I would be lying if I said there was any real strategy to this boss. 
Its only attack is that it will launch a devastating attack with big stars. 
It's Doom and gloom until you find out that you'll only take 1 HP in damage.

If you're having any trouble beating this boss, well, I'd recommend you 
reconsider the decisions you're making in this game.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
 
After the fight, go right into the next area.

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

A person named Merle will greet you. Merle will invite you to his house. Now, 
he'll give you the Scarf, one of the items needed to get to Crystal Palace. 
Before leaving this place, go to the bottom of the area and you'll find a Toad 
with a green head. Give him the letter (assuming you've been following my chain 
letter), and he'll give you a letter for Goompapa.

Now leave this place and backtrack to Shiver City through the Shiver Snowfield. 
On your way back, you'll find a frozen Jr. Troopa in the middle of the area.

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

Go to the Mayor's House once your back here. Talk to him and he'll give you a 
Bucket. You also have a letter for him, so give it to him and you'll get a Star 
Piece out of him. Go back to Shiver Snowfield.

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

From the frozen Jr. Troopa, head right into the next area. You'll see a line of 
snowmen. Give the third snowman on the left a scarf and give the bucket to the 
snowman on the far right. They'll thank you and then open the path to Shiver 
Mountain, one of my favorite places.

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

The music here is one of my favorite pieces of music in a game. Now head right 
up the stairs and fall in the pit at the top. Down here, tornado jump to break 
the ice and then tornado jump again to rise the platform. Now continue right, 
going up and down all the stairs until you find a brick block. Bash the brick 
block and then do a tornado jump where the block was and you'll find an Ultra 
Shroom. Now head right into the next area and walk up to the gap. Pull out 
Kooper and use him to activate the switch. The platform will rise, but what's 
this? 
 
We seem to have another Kooper with us. Both are trying to convince you they 
are real. Whack the one on the left and it'll turn into a Duplighost. Fight it 
in battle and then it'll walk away. Now go right and head up the stairs. At the 
top, take out the White Clubba and go up the stairs to your left. You'll find a 
super block, so use it to upgrade one of your partners. And if you've gotten 
all of the ones prior to this, all of your members should be at ultra rank! Now 
go back down the stairs and continue right into the next area. You'll see three 
items on the wall in front of you, but don't pick them up, as they'll block the 
way to the next area. But there is a trick. When taking them out, put ANY other 
item in the slot's place to open up the gate (so if you took the Thunder Rage 
and made the gate shut, replace it with one of your bad items and it'll open 
the gate). We'll get them at the end of the chapter. Go right into the next 
area for the time being.

In this area, head up the stairs and you'll find a slot in the shape of a star. 
We don't have the item yet, so fall down the pit to your right. Down here, head 
right and use Bombette to blow up the wall and then go inside. In here, go 
right and walk through the fake wall, and you'll meet someone named Madam 
Merlar. She'll tell a long, long, boring story to put Mario asleep with the 
snoozing bubble. Pick up the Star Stone and then leave this cave. Back out 
here, go up the stairs and put the Star Stone in the slot. It will create a 
long, long, long staircase. Now, go up the first staircase.

At the top, take out the White Clubba and go red. Hit the red "?" block for the 
Mega Jump badge, which is jump's best move. Go left and up the next staircase. 
Save your game with the save block at the top of this staircase. Before going 
up the next staircase, fall off the ledge next to you and you'll land on a 
ledge with a Star Piece, so pick it up. This means you need to go up all the 
stairs again. At the top, heal with the Heart Block and head right into the 
next area. You'll see a cool reflection of yourself. Head right and open the 
door into the Crystal Palace.

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

The reflection is still with you. Open the first door you see. In this room, 
save your game and go right, where you'll find a Red X and a door (remember 
where the X is). Open the door. In this room, take out the Swoopulas and open 
the door on the right side of the room. Open the chest in this room for the 
Blue Key. Now go back to the main hall of the Crystal Palace. Go right and 
you'll find a switch. Tornado jump it to change it from red to blue. Now unlock 
the door. In this room, take out Bombette and go to the other side of the room. 
Let her blow up the wall and then go through the opening. In this room, you'll 
notice your reflection is gone. Notice there is not a mirror between the two 
poles in the middle. On this side of the room, bash the brick block for 
multiple coins and then blow up the cracked wall on the left with Bombette. Go 
through the new opening on the left.

In this room, you'll run into a copy of Mario and Bombette and they'll turn 
into Duplighosts (they did a good job with your reflection). After you fight 
them, go left and open the door. You'll be on the other side of the main 
Crystal Palace hall. Open the first door you see. In this room, hit the "?" 
block for a Super Shroom. Now go right. Use the tornado jump to break the 
wooden floor. Down here, open the door to your right. In this room, go right 
and open the door at the other side of the hall, taking out the Swoopulas. In 
here, open the chest for a P-Down, D-Up Badge (increases defense by 1, lowers 
attack by one). Now go back to the room with the swing and bounce on it.

Back up here, open the door on your right. In this room, take out the 
Duplighost and open the door on the other side of the room. Pick up the 
Shooting Star and go back to the main hall. Back in here, go left and open the 
door and you'll be back outside. Out here, go left and into the cave. Pick up 
the Star Piece in this cave and go back inside the Crystal Palace. From here, 
work your way back to the other side of this hall, by using the same path you 
took to get here. Once you get to the other side of the main hall, open the 
door. Back in this room, go to where the Red X was. Since you smashed the floor 
on the other side, it got rid of the red X, so drop down to the floor below 
you.
 
Down here, head right and blow up the cracked wall with Bombette. She'll come 
back down with four clones of herself. After they all fight over who is the 
real one, talk to the second on the right. She'll tell you that she'll never 
forgive you if you screw up. So smash away all the fake Bombettes and then 
she'll give you a kiss. Now you can head right into the next area. Open the 
chest for a Red Key. Now go back out to the main hall. Go to where the blue 
switch is. Use your tornado jump on the switch to make the switch and the door 
red. Unlock the red door and then enter it. In this room, open the door to your 
right. You'll see a White Clubba and a Clubba statue in the back. Defeating a 
Clubba makes the statue disappear. After this fight, take out the next two 
Clubbas. Then go left into the previous room.
 
Back in here, go on the other side of the mirror and open the door to your 
right. Since the Clubba statues are gone on this side of the room, cross the 
bridge and open the door on the right side of this room. In here, go past the 
red switch and walk up to the wall. Use Bombette to blow up the wall on the 
right (there's no crack, but who cares). Take out the Duplighost to your right 
and open the chest for a Triple Dip Badge (uses 3 items in one turn). Now, go 
back to the previous room.

Make Bombette go to the switch. Before she blows up, go to the middle mirror 
and the switch will cause the sliding mirror to revolve, moving you on the 
other side of the room. On this side, open the door to your right. In this 
room, take out the White Clubba and open the door to the right. In this room, 
take out Kooper and go to the other side of the room. Use Kooper to send him 
into hole and he'll come out with Luigi, Kolorado, Goompa, and Koopa Koot. This 
is really sad. All of them are trying to say they're the real Kooper. Of 
course, just smash anyone BUT Kooper and they'll go away.

Now, the explosion will create an opening, so go through it. In this room, 
enter the door in front of you.

||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: Smash the ground beneath the "?" block and the hidden Star 
Piece will be yours.
||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
 
Use a tornado jump to the his "?" block for a Maple Syrup and leave the room. 
Now open the door to your right. In this room, you'll see your reflection is 
back. Take out Kooper and use his Shell Toss to activate the blue switch on 
your reflected side, thus making a bridge. Cross the bridge and open the door 
on your right. Go on the other side of the glass and open the door on your 
left. Since you're on the reflected side of the room, cross the bridge and open 
the door. In this room, open the door in front of you.

||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 
HIDDEN STAR PIECE: As soon as you enter the room, smash your hammer to the left 
and you'll find a hidden Star Piece.
|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Now, if you want a hidden Jammin' Jelly, use a tornado jump above where the 
Star Piece panel is. Go right and push the little rhino statue to the left and 
you'll fall down a hole. Down here, open the door to your right. Take out the 
White Clubba and open the door on the right side of this room. In here, open 
the chest for the P-Up, D-Down badge (power + 1, defense - 1). Now, backtrack 
to the room where you got the Maple Syrup. Head right and you'll notice the big 
rhino statue was formed, revealing a hole, so fall down it. Down here, open the 
door to your right. In here, open the chest for a Palace Key. Now go back to 
the spring and bounce up it. Leave this room. Back in this hall, go right and 
open the door.

In here, open the door across from you. In this room, you'll need to solve a 
puzzle with real rhinos and rhino statues. When you talk to the rhinos, they 
direction they face in will also make the statues face that direction. You can 
only push statues in the direction the rhino heads are facing. Push the 
leftmost statue until it's in front of the orange tile. Now speak to the 
corresponding rhino so it faces the south side. Now push the left statue so it 
covers the left tile.

Now talk to the middle rhino so it is facing your right side. Now push the 
middle rhino statue to the right so it's above the middle orange tile. Now talk 
to the middle rhino so that it is facing north. Now push the middle statue down 
so it covers the middle tile. For the right rhino, talk to the right rhino so 
he is facing south. Now push the right rhino statue up so it is against the 
ledge. Now talk to the rhino so he faces right. Push the statue to the right 
until it is directly above the tile. Now talk to the rhino so he faces north. 
Push the statue down to the tile and you'll have the puzzle solved!

After the puzzle is solved, a staircase will rise to the door, so go up the 
stairs and open the door. Use the Heart Block and save your game. Now make sure 
Watt is your partner and you got the Dizzy Stomp Badge and Feeling Fine 
equipped. Now open the door to your right and you'll be outside. You'll meet 
the Crystal King, the boss of this area.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
BOSS: Crystal King
HP: 70
Attack: 6
Defense: 2

The Crystal King is not as hard as Huff N. Puff, but he's still a challenge 
nonetheless. The Crystal King has a defense of 2, so jumping on him will only 
do 1 HP of damage, so it's best to use your hammer for the entire fight. Watt's 
Electro Dash also helps, as you will be able to deal 5 HP per turn without the 
use of FP. Also, if you do have Watt, it will also help to use Turbo Charge to 
boost Mario's attack during the battle.

Now, about the Crystal King himself: He is surrounded by 3 Crystal Bits. All of 
them have 1 HP, and they won't damage you directly. However, if not taken care 
of, the Crystal King will inhale the Crystal Bits and spit them out at you for 
4 HP a piece (meaning you can take up to 12 HP in damage). I would personally 
just continue to attack the Crystal King, rather than attacking the Crystal 
Bits themselves. Also, if the Crystal King inhales the Crystal Bits and spits 
them at you, he will also waste a turn to regenerate a new set of Crystal Bits, 
giving you another turn to do whatever.

The Crystal King can also shoot an ice beam at you for 6 HP. This can freeze 
Mario in the process. If you have the Feeling Fine Badge on, this won't be a 
problem.

When you get its health low enough, the Crystal King will divide itself into 3 
clones - one of them being the real one. To counter this, just simply use an 
attack or item that affects all enemies, such as Star Storm, a Shooting Star, 
or Bombette's Power Bomb. Also, when its health is low, it can use a turn to 
recover 20 HP.

When you get the Crystal King's health low enough he is almost harmless. He 
will spend more time dividing into 3 clones and will attack just about every 
other turn. As long as you use attacks that can strike all enemies to find the 
real Crystal King, you'll be set.

Hang in there and you'll win!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
 
After the fight, he'll disappear to reveal the final Star Spirit! 
Congratulations! Now, save your game.

PRINCESS PEACH'S CASTLE 
Peach is worried about if she is helping Mario or not. Twink will cheer her up 
by saying she is. When they go back inside their room, Bowser comes in and 
wants to have a little friendly conversation with Peach, but she won't buy it. 
Peach will tell him Mario is coming and he can't stop you. Kammy comes in 
informing Bowser that you saved all seven star spirits. Bowser plans to have 
his guards ambush Mario the second he enters his castle. Then she orders for 
Princess Peach to be tied up "If she gets out this time, heads will roll!". I 
wonder if they'll ever find out about the secret passage.

Twink finally shows himself to Bowser and tries sticking up for himself and 
Peach.

BACK TO THE MAIN ADVENTURE 
Kalmar will give you your seventh meter of Star Energy (red) and an ability 
called Up & Away, which can knock enemies out of battle by turning them into 
stars. Kalmar then tells you that we need to head to Shooting Star Summit so 
that they can give you a way up to Bowser's Castle.

*Sigh* I'm going to miss this cool music here. From here, work your way back to 
the room that had the three items (Thunder Rage/Snowman Doll/Shooting Star). I 
say take the Thunder Rage and Shooting Star, as the Snowman Doll isn't much of 
use at this point of the game. From here, work your way back to Shiver City. On 
your way back, you'll notice the frozen Jr. Troopa is missing and the Gulpits 
have taken over the area. Perhaps he got swallowed?

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

Once you're back in Shiver City, go sleep in the Toad House. I don't care what 
your health is. When you wake up, you'll find an Iced Potato, 4 Mushrooms, and 
an Ultra Shrooms! I seriously wonder who did this for us. Now take the Ultra 
Shroom at the least and head into Toad Town Tunnels.

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

In this area, go left and go down the pipe. Now, go left and open the door. 
Drop down to the floor in front of you and head down the pipe. Use Bombette to 
blow up the wall on the right if you haven't done so yet. Go through the 
opening, head up the pipe, and at the top, use the key in this room to unlock 
the door (if you didn't go through this area yet). Go outside and you'll find 
yourself in Toad Town.

******************************************************************************* 
POST CHAPTER 7 SIDE QUESTS 
 
Got any last minute errands before Bowser's castle? First off, go deliver that 
letter to Merlow for a Star Piece (why would he give you one if he's collecting 
them, plus you need every last Star Piece to buy all his badges). Also, get to 
Goomba Village via Toad Town Tunnels. Give the letter to Goompapa and this will 
finish the chain letters. Instead of giving you a letter, he'll reward you with 
a Lucky Day Badge for all your work (makes enemies sometimes miss you, works 
better then Pretty Lucky). That should finish off every last letter in the 
game.

Other than that, finish off your Badge and Star Piece collection and finish up 
Chuck Quizmo. If you want, make some more Tayce T recipes to make good healing 
items for our upcoming trip.
*******************************************************************************

The Star Spirits wants you to go to Shooting Star Summit. Once you're there, 
take the upper path and then at the top of all the steps, they'll create a path 
for you up to Star Way.

---------
Star Way
---------

Once you're up here, fight the blue flames and just follow the path into the 
next area, Star Haven.

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

One last town before we head over to Bowser's castle. If you head up the 
stairs, you'll find a shop.

Stop Watch (15 coins) 
Shooting Star (15 coins) 
Super Soda (3 coins) 
Maple Syrup (10 coins) 
Life Shroom (25 coins) 
Super Shroom (10 coins) 
 
If you need to claim your best healing items from the clerk before we move on. 
Heal at the Toad House if needed (everyone here is a star). Now continue right 
into the next area. You'll see the building where the Star Rod was stolen, and 
now it's playing a remix of the Star Spirit theme. Head up the stairs and enter 
the building, where the seven star spirits are waiting for you. They'll all 
upgrade you with another star ability called Star Beam, which uses no star 
energy. Whenever Bowser is invincible, just use this attack to make him 
hittable again.

In here, they'll also create you a Star Ship to go Bowser's castle. Jump in the 
ship when you're ready, and hit yes to take a nice ride across the sky. People 
from below thing it's a shooting star and start making wishes.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
Chapter 8: A Star-Powered Showdown
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

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

Wow, can't we just ride this thing straight up to Peach's castle and make our 
lives 150x easier? Once you enter, you'd think it'd be logical to ride on one 
of Bowser's clown cups up to the castle. Open the door in this area. The door 
across from us is locked. Go across the bridge up to the locked door. From 
here, follow the right path to an opening and then go through it. In this area, 
head down the stairs and you'll find one of Bowser's guards. You can flip them 
over with jump, but you need the Spike Shield Badge because of the spike, but 
with Spike Shield, this area becomes a lot easier. Defeating this Koopatrol 
makes a castle key form. Take the Castle Key, leave this room, and then unlock 
the door and open it.

In this room, head right and take out the Koopatrol. Now head right into the 
next area. In this hallway, take out the Koopatrol and the Hammer Bros. Now 
head right and open the door. In this room, the door will talk to you and tell 
you that you can go through. But he set up a trap so that when you stand in 
front of you, you fall into a prison. Down here, smash the block on the right 
to find a Life Shroom. Now use the Heart Block and let Bombette blow up the 
wall on the right. In this room, save your game and then go through the opening 
to your right. Now, like in Mt. Lavalava, you need to jump across all of the 
platforms here before they sink into the lava (using Parakarry is too slow). 
Once you've jumped across each and every Pokemon, go through the opening to 
your right.

In this room, get to the bare edge of the step and let Kooper activate the 
switch. This will cause a sliding platform to appear. Use it to get to the 
platform across from you. On here, use Lakilester to float in the lava. Go 
right and you'll find a platform with a switch. Activate this switch to make 
another sliding platform form. Now go left and get on the platform. Use 
Parakarry to get you across all of these platforms and then you'll get to an 
opening, so go through it.

Use Lakilester to get you across the lava onto a platform (use Kooper to get 
the items if you want). On this platform, take out Bow and let her make you 
invisible so you can cross the lava fall. Now get onto the platform and use 
Parakarry to get on the platform to your right. On here, get in the lava with 
Lakilester and go through the opening. In here, head right past the lava and 
then get on the ground. Head up the stairs and you'll find 3 Koopatrols and a 
Blue Magikoopa guarding the switch, and we have to fight them. Take out the 
Magikoopa first, because they can give any special ability to any koopa.

Once you beat them, hit the switch and it'll cool down all the lava and harden 
it. Since it is hard now, we can walk on it. Before progressing, go all the way 
left until you're back at the second lava room (the one to the right of the 
room with the Save Block). You'll notice that there is a new opening where the 
lava was. Go through this opening. Head left and bash the "?" block for a Life 
Shroom. Continue left and head through the opening so you're outside. Out here, 
follow the melted lava to a bunch of ledges. Hit the red "?" block for the 
third and final Deep Focus Badge (if you've been following this guide, you 
should have all 80 badges now).

Once you have it, go back inside the castle. In this room, head through the 
opening on the other side of the room. In here, go back through the opening to 
your right. In this room, go to the middle of the room. Thanks to the melted 
lava, we can go through the opening in here. Go through it and then open the 
chest for a Castle Key. Now from here, go all the way back to the opening where 
you hit the switch to cool down the lava. Standing in front of the opening, 
head right and unlock the door and then open it.

This room is completely pitch black, so you'll need Watt to light it up. Now, 
follow the path until you get to a fork. Take the upper path and go up the 
slope. Get to the edge of the platform and use Parakarry to fly you over the 
gap (it'll be dark if you switch Watt, but you'll get it). Use Watt to light 
the room up again. Now go all the way left up a slope. At the top, use 
Parakarry to fly you over the gap and then continue left into the next area. 
You'll come into another dark room, so let Watt light it up.

Head left and you'll come to two paths. Take the lower one and head left up the 
slope. At the top, use Parakarry to fly you over the gap. Switch to Watt so you 
can light up the room again. Head left and you'll come across three different 
paths. Take the highest path and go up the slope. At the top, drop down to the 
floor below you and you'll be next to a spring. Down here, head left, take out 
the Blue Magikoopa, and go into the area to your left. Back in this room, push 
the statue to your left and then go through the opening.

The guy will now let you through, so hit A to open him. In here, head right and 
save your game. Now head right and go through the opening. Go down the stairs 
and head into the next room. Take out the Guard to get the key. Open the cell 
and talk to the Red Toad so you can sleep here and refresh yourself. Leave this 
room and go back to the Save Block. Head left and open the door, where you'll 
find a shop. A Spiked Goomba is running it and will sell you stuff.

Super Shroom (30 coins)
Mayple Syrup (30 coins) 
Thunder Rage (30 coins) 
POW Block (15 coins)
Dizzy Dial (25 coins) 
Mystery (5 coins)

Now leave this room. Back in here, open the door at the other side of the room. 
In this hallway, take out the Koopatrols and the Blue Magikoopa and then open 
the door on the right side of this room.

I hate this puzzle. Go into the next room to your right. Head right until you 
find a spring. Hit the spring to get on the platform to your left. Go left and 
jump on the chain to make the water level rise. Now swim through the water with 
Sushi. Go left into the previous area. On here, swim onto the dock and hit the 
blue switch to make a spring appear. Bounce onto the platform to the right. 
Head right and use Bombette to blow up the wall and then go through the 
opening. Use a tornado jump to break the brick block and make the switch fall 
Hit the switch to make a hallway appear. Go down these hallways and pull the 
chain at the end, causing the water to rise again. Go back to the previous 
area.

Go to the dock and swim left onto a platform to pick up a Castle Key. Now go 
right to the area we were just at. Pull the chain to make the water level drop. 
Now go back to the previous area. Drop down to the floor below you. Go to the 
dock and swim right into the next area. In here, get to the dock and pull the 
chain to make all the water go away. Drop down to the ground. Down here, head 
right and unlock and open the door. In this room, head up the stairs and dodge 
the Golden Bullet Bills. Take out the cannons at the end (same way you did in 
Koopa Bros. Fortress). Now head up the stairs and go left. Take out the next 
Bullet Bill Cannon and head up the stairs. Go right and take out the third set 
of cannons, and after that, go up the stairs and take out the final set of 
Bullet Bill cannons. After this, head up the stairs and open the door to your 
right.

You'll find Dry Bones here. The only way to defeat them is with fire, so use 
attacks like Fire Flower or Kooper's Fire Shell. Take them out if you got the 
moves, otherwise avoid them. Also, notice the three statues. Push the one on 
the right to the left and then go through the opening. In this room, head right 
down the hall and then go through the opening. In here, save your game and then 
push the left statue to the left and then go through the opening. In this room, 
use that mush needed Heart Block and continue right into the next room. In 
here, push the middle statue over to the right to reveal an opening. Go through 
this opening. In this hall, head left into the next room. In here, pick up the 
Castle Key. Now go back to the room with the Save Block. Now open the locked 
door.

In here, talk to the gate blocking your way. He'll let you through if you pass 
his quiz. Here the answers.

1. 3 Koopas
2. 3 Red Shy Guys
3. Red Shy Guys
4. 2 Goombas
5. 4 arms

If you answer these right, he'll let you pass. If you miss 3 questions, you 
will be required to fight 3 Anti-Guys. 

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
FIGHT THE ANTI GUYS?

HP: 50 each (150 total)
Attack: 10
Defense: 0

If you want to torture yourself and fight the Anti-Guys (missing 3 questions on 
purpose), then you'll need to be well-prepared in advance. One strategy I used 
was that I used Triple-Dip to attack the Anti-Guy squad 3 times in one turn, 
using two Thunder Rages and a Shooting Star, dealing up to 16 HP of damage in 
one turn. You'll also want to make sure you have items that heal a LOT of HP 
and FP (Deluxe Feast and Jelly Ultra for example). Also, having Bow's Outta 
Sight will also help buy an extra turn of not taking any damage from the Anti-
Guys.

It also helps to have a Life Shroom or two, as well. It also helps to use Star 
Storm to attack all 3 Anti-Guys.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whether you decided to fight the Anti-Guys or not, open the gate and you'll be 
outside. Hit the "?" blocks for Maple Syrup and Super Shroom. Now head right 
and go up the stairs. At the top, drop down in front of the ledge for a Jammin' 
Jelly. Now go back up both staircases. At the top, head all the way left until 
you get to a door and then open it. Head left, save your game, and then go 
through the opening to your left. Now head down the stairs and go through the 
opening at the bottom. Take out the Koopatrol for a cell key. Open the cell and 
talk to the Toad so you can rest.

Now leave the room, go back up the stairs, and then back to the save block. 
Head up the stairs. At the top, go left and enter the door. In here, head left 
and go up the blocky platforms. Jump onto the lower one and you'll see a switch 
below you. Use Bombette to blow the switch up below you. It'll cause the 
platform to rise and then fall, so quickly get on the platform to your left. Go 
through the opening and get the Ultra Shroom. Now go right into the room with 
the save block. From the top of the staircase, head right and open the door. In 
here, head up the stairs and take out the Koopatrol. At the top, go right and 
open the door.

In this room, get on the small platform above the red switch. Use Bombette to 
blow up the switch on the floor. This will make the platform rise and fall, so 
quickly get on the floor to the right. On here, head right into the opening. 
Now pick up the Castle Key and leave this room. Back out here, leave the room 
to your left. In here, go down the stairs and head right. Open the locked door 
and go through it. This is a pretty annoying puzzle. You need to take the 
correct way or else you'll wind back at the start.

1. Start the puzzle by heading up the stairs and going through the opening.
2. Now head down the staircase in the next room and go through the opening to 
your right.
3. Don't go up any staircases, just head right and go through the opening at 
the other end of the room.
4. Head up the staircase and then go right through the opening into the next 
room.
5. Go right and head down the staircase on the right. Now, go through the 
opening to your right.
6. Head up the staircase. At the top, go right and head through the opening.

If you did this right, you'll be in a hallway with Koopatrols. Battle them and 
head right across the bridge so you get to a door. Open the door and then use 
that Heart Block. Now go across the hall and you'll find Peach! Yay! Now we 
don't have to beat Bowser! Talk to her. She'll come up with some excuse that 
she ran away when Bowser wasn't looking. She says that you don't need to fight 
him (but he still has the star rod, dumbass). After, go left and she'll follow 
you for a while. When you notice she's gone, bolt to the right. Hit her three 
times with a hammer and she'll turn into a Duplighost. After the fight, go back 
left and heal. Now head right and open the door.

You'll be greeted by another guard. Your last test is to defeat the Koopa Bros. 
again, but Jr. Troopa comes in and kicks them out. This is your final match.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
MINI BOSS: Jr. Troopa VI
HP: 60
Attack: 8
Defense: 2

Now, he will combine all of his past forms into one. His first attack is 
jumping on you for 8 HP. About halfway into the battle, he'll transform into 
his flying spiked head form. This means no jumping without Spike Shield, and 
you'll need to use attacks like Star Storm. You'll want a partner like Sushi 
for this part. He'll also duck into his shell and charge at you for 8 HP. When 
you start draining him low on health, he'll lose the wings and bring out his 
wand. He can use the wand to make a thunder bolt at you for 9 HP or heal 10 HP 
for himself. He can also magic blast you for 8HP.

Just heal when needed, use your best attacks, use Star Storm and Smooch when 
you got the chance. Sushi and Watt are good partners for the battle.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 
 
After the fight, the gate wonders that if you're really stronger than the Koopa 
Bros. (You beat Jr. Troopa, Jr. Troopa beat them, do you beat the Koopa Bros?). 
Now open the gate and then enter. In this room, head up the stairs and open the 
door at the top! Yay! Fresh air! Save your game and then use Watt to light up 
the area. You'll find a hidden "?" block, so hit it for an Ultra Shroom. Enter 
Peach's castle.

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

Upon walking into the main hall, go on the right staircase and open the door. 
Open the cupboard and you'll find a Toad. He says you can sleep in your bed and 
restore your health. Now go back into the main hall. Head up the big staircase 
and open the door at the top. In the main hall 2F, open the first door to the 
left of this door and you'll be in the library. Get to the middle of the room 
where there are stacks of books. Use the book stacks to get on top of the 
shelves. Up here, head right and follow the path to a Life Shroom. Now go back 
to the main hall. Out here, head up either staircase and then open the door at 
the top.

Head up the staircase in this room. Before opening the door, de-equip any 
Useless battle badges for the final fight (Chill Out, Speedy Spin, etc). Put on 
badges like Power Plus, Mega Smash/Mega Jump, and S. Jump/Smash Chg. Now open 
the door. Peach is screaming for your help since Bowser is hanging her from the 
ceiling. It's time for a rematch in front of that broken window that never got 
fixed.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
BOSS: Bowser
HP: 50
Defense: 1
Fire Attack: 8 
Stamp/Nail: 6

Bowser can launch a flamethrower at you for 8 HP, or use a stamp/nail attack 
for 6 HP. When he goes invincible, use the Star Beam to remove his powers. 
Also, when you bring his health down, he'll start healing himself for 20 HP. 
Use attacks like Mega Smash to remove 10 HP for him. Don't use your own healing 
items; save them for the next fight.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

After the fight, he'll say it was just a warm-up and then bolt away with the 
Princess. Before you go chasing him, go back down to the first floor and heal. 
Now come back to this room. Open the door on the right. Now head up both 
staircases and open the door at the top. You'll see Bowser in the background, 
running away with Peach. Go into the door to your left. Save your game and then 
go up that long spiral staircase. At the top, open the door, make any last 
minute adjustments with your badges, and then cross the bridge onto the 
battlefield.

Kammy Koopa will activate the battlefield to make Bowser a lot stronger.
 
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
FINAL BOSS: Bowser
HP: 99
Defense: 2

I would recommend beginning this fight using as many FP as you can. You'll find 
out in a second. Keep fighting Bowser until he decides to go invincible. When 
this happens, use Star Beam, and you'll find out that Bowser is just too strong 
for Star Beam to have any effect. Now, the game takes over and the viewpoint 
switch to Peach. Peach is wondering how she can help out, and then Twink comes 
in and knocks Kammy out, proceeding to untie Peach in the process. From here, 
Peach and Twink will team up to fight Kammy.

This is as straightforward as a fight as you can get. The only attack Peach can 
use is Focus, and the only attack Twink can use is Dash. Focus will increase 
Twink's attack and defense by 1 each turn, so every turn, you will be dealing 
more damage and taking less damage from Kammy. Just keep fighting until Kammy 
is knocked out.

During this time, Peach will make a wish to make Mario stronger. The Star 
Spirits will arrive and upgrade our Star Beam to Peach Beam. From here, we 
resume our fight with Bowser.

As soon as you start fighting with Bowser, you'll notice you have been 
completely healed 100%, but Bowser has not. When you start this fight back up 
again. Use the Peach Beam to remove Bowser's invincibility Bowser's attacks are 
the same as last battle, except powered up. Now, his flamethrower is 10HP, he 
can swipe you for 8 HP (and poison you, unless you have Feeling Fine). Also, 
he'll use a thunderbolt for 10 HP. Another attack is that he'll send a shock 
wave for 6 HP and knock your partner out for 3 turns. Be warned that this 
deactivates any charges you have on you and your partner. He can also heal 
himself for 30 HP when his health starts getting low. Just use Mega Smash every 
turn and when your FP gets low, use FP restoring items. Heal when needed, just 
your best attacks non-stop, use Peach Beam when he goes invincible, and you'll 
win the battle easily.

As for partners, I say use Watt, since Electro Dash overrides any defense, 
doing 5 HP a turn (when at ultra rank).
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After the fight is over, Mario takes back the Star Rod and the castle blows up. 
Now enjoy your ending!

-----------------
Tayce T. Recipes
-----------------

If an item wasn't listed in the above section, then your only way of getting it 
(for the majority of these items) is by giving Tayce T. an item or two. You can 
only give her two items after you give her the Cookbook dropped by Gourmet Guy 
in Shy Guy Toy Box. Also, if you give her an item or two that don't mix, you'll 
usually wind up with a mistake (item that restores 1 HP and 1 FP, hey, that's 
better than a Dried Shroom :D).

Also, there are multiple recipes you can use to get an item, but that's totally 
up to you. I'll try to use the easiest and simplest ones. Some items here may 
already be listed in the above section, but this is a checklist for getting all 
of the recipes if you want to beat the game 100%.

If a recipe requires two items, they will be separated by a /. If there are 
multiple ways to get the recipe, each method will be separated by a comma (,).

6. Enemies
===========

*************
AMAZY DAYZEE
*************

HP: 20
Attack: 20
Defense: 1
Location: Located near the Blue Tree Flower in Flower Fields. However, the 
Amazy Dayzee does not appear there every single time. 
 
Beating Amazy Dayzee will give you a lot of Star Points, but it is difficult. 
My tip is this: equip Mario with P-Up, D-Down, and give him both Power Plus 
Badges with Mega Jump equipped. Set Bombette to blow up on the field until you 
get the first strike. Use the Mega Jump, and then a good Bomb, and you should 
have it down in no time.

*******
BANDIT
*******

HP: 5
Attack: 2
Defense: 0
Location: Dry Dry Desert

Whenever a Bandit attacks you, they steal 10 coins from you. If you don't 
attack the Bandit who stole the coins from you on the next turn, they run away, 
and no Star Points from the Bandit are given. If you hit them on the next turn, 
you get your precious coins back.

****************
B. BILL BLASTER
****************

HP: 10
Attack: 0
Defense: 4
Location: Bowser's Castle

All they do is shoot out the Bullet Bills, so they will do no direct harm to 
you. But their defense will make the battles irritating, so use your top 
attacks or Star Storm them.

********
BOB-OMB
******** 
 
HP: 3
Attack: 1
Defense: 0
Location: Koopa Bros. Fortress

Bob-ombs will go red hot if you hit them, and if you jump on them on the next 
turn, they will explode, doing extra damage. Their main attack is jumping on 
you for 1 HP, which can be easily dodged.

***************
BOMBSHELL BILL
*************** 
 
HP: 3
Attack: 6
Defense: 0
Location: Bowser's Castle

These Bombshell Bills only appear from being shot out of the cannons. One 
attack should be enough to knock them out, but try to finish them off before 
they ram you for 6 HP. But they do explode afterward, thus giving you the Star 
Points anyway.

************
BONY BEETLE
************

HP: 8
Attack: 3
Defense: 4
Location: Bowser's Castle

Bony Beetles can toss its shell at Mario for 3 HP or jump on Mario for 5 HP if 
their spikes are out. The best way to get around these beetles are to D-Down 
Pound them or use Watt's Electro Dash to get their health down in no time.

************
BULLET BILL
************ 
 
HP: 2
Attack: 2
Defense: 0
Location: Koopa Bros. Fortress

These only appear when they are shot out of the Bullet Bills. One action 
command jump can dispose of them, otherwise they will ram Mario for 2 HP and 
explode, and don't worry, you will get credit for the Star Points if that does 
happen.

*************
BUZZY BEETLE
************* 
 
HP: 3
Attack: 2
Defense: 2 
Location: Dry Dry Ruins, Toad Town Tunnels

To get rid of their defense, all you need to do is jump on them to flip them on 
their back, and then you can use your partner to wear them down. On the next 
turn, they will flip over, but will not attack you. They can attack you with a 
shell toss attack for 2 HP and sometimes, if they are on the ceilings in Dry 
Dry Ruins, they will fall from the ceiling and hit Mario on the head, causing 3 
HP in damage.

*******
BZZAP!
*******

HP: 3
Attack: 6
Defense: 0
Location: Forever Forest (inside beehive), Flower Fields

They can be a little nuisance, but they are easy to dispose of. One jump should 
get rid of them. One of their attacks is that they will sting Mario for 6 HP, 
also adding in a chance of poisoning him as well. Sometimes they will call in 
the little bees, to sting Mario 1 by 1 (they do 1 HP each), and this attack 
will have a chance of shrinking Mario. Just defeat them quickly before they 
cause too much trouble.

******
CLEFT
****** 
 
HP: 2
Attack: 2
Defense: 2
Location: Mt. Rugged

Unless you have D-Down Pound, there's no easy way to defeat these enemies. With 
their defense of two, nothing except a Bomb attack can damage them (at least in 
that part of the game). If you're going to be fighting these, get the D-Down 
Pound from Rowf and use it against the Cleft. Doing so will negate their 
defense and knock them out in one hit. Their only attack is that they will ram 
Mario for 2 HP.

*******
CLUBBA
*******

HP: 8
Attack: 3
Defense: 0
Location: Tubba Blubba's Castle

Their only attack is that they clobber you for 3 HP, otherwise there's no real 
strategy to beat them. You and your partner can take one out each turn, but the 
only pain here is that dodging their attacks could be a little annoying, and 
the lack of immediate health around Tubba Blubba's castle makes it even worse.

***************
CRAYZEE DAYZEE
*************** 
 
HP: 8
Attack: 4
Defense: 0
Location: Flower Fields

Their only attack is that they sing a song in front of Mario's face, and it's 
so strong it even costs you 4 HP and has a chance of putting Mario to sleep 
too, and dodging this attack is pretty hard (I've only done it once or twice 
before). But when their HP get low, they will run away most of the time, and 
you will not get credit for the Star Points either, but you and your partner 
should be able to take them out in one turn.

***********
DARK KOOPA
*********** 
 
HP: 8
Attack: 3
Defense: 2
Location: Toad Town Tunnels

Dark Koopas are one of the most annoying enemies in the game if you don't have 
the Feeling Fine badge equipped. They'll either use a shell toss attack against 
you for 3 HP or make a tornado in front of Mario, causing him to get dizzy. But 
if you're wearing Feeling Fine, you don't need to worry about this at all. Like 
any other shelled enemy, jump on them to flip them on their back to negate 
their defense. And when they jump back up on the next turn, they won't attack.

**********
DRY BONES
**********

HP: 8
Attack: 4
Defense: 2
Location: Bowser's Castle

I've never found a way to beat this enemy without any use of Fire. Even if you 
do wear them down, they will scramble their bones together and get back up. My 
favorite way of torching these enemies (no pun intended) is to use Kooper's 
Fire Shell attack which can do 15 HP and burn them into oblivion. Their only 
attack is that they throw bones at Mario for 4 HP.

***********
DUPLIGHOST
***********

HP: 15
Attack: 4
Defense: 0
Location: Shiver Mountain, Crystal Palace, Bowser's Castle

Duplighosts like to make a carbon copy of your partner and use their 
attacks/abilities on you. The amount of damage done is the same damage your 
partner does to other enemies. If the Duplighost hasn't cloned itself yet, it 
can headbutt you for 4 HP.

******
EMBER
******

HP: 10
Attack: 4
Defense: 0
Location: Star Road

Only water attacks and non-fiery items are effective against Embers. When 
attacked, they will split into another Ember, who has an equivalent amount of 
HP. They can attack you by jumping onto Mario for 4 HP or shooting out flames 
at your partner, and if not defended correctly, your partner will be knocked 
out for two turns.

*************
FOREST FUZZY
************* 
 
HP: 6
Attack: 1
Defense: 0
Location: Forever Forest

Fuzzies can suck 1 HP out of you and use it to recover 1 HP of their own. To 
defend yourself from this, hit A RIGHT AFTER the 2nd "suck" of the fuzzy. The 
timing for this can be a little tricky, however. Its other attack is that it 
can duplicate itself and put out another Forest Fuzzy onto the field (hey, more 
Star Points for you).

**************
FROST PIRANHA
************** 
 
HP: 10
Attack: 4 
Defense: 0
Location: Shiver Snowfield, Shiver Mountain
 
Frost Piranhas can bite Mario for 4 HP or use their ice cold Winter-Fresh 
breath and freeze Mario. This can be avoided by using Feeling Fine or by 
dodging the attack as the breath is coming out. Ice attacks do not work against 
these Frost Piranhas and fire attacks are very effective, so use them if you 
can.

******
FUZZY
******

HP: 3
Attack: 1
Defense: 0
Location: Koopa Village

Fuzzies can suck 1 HP out of Mario and use it to recover 1 HP of their own. To 
avoid this attack, press A about a half second right after the second suck, and 
you won't get hurt (and the Fuzzy won't heal itself either).

********
GLOOMBA
******** 
 
HP: 7
Attack: 2
Defense: 0
Location: Toad Town Tunnels

Gloombas are just blue, stronger versions of Goombas. Their only attack is that 
they jump on Mario for 2 HP. So you can finish them off without a problem, 
unless you're low on health and are fighting several of them. At least they 
give out a good amount of Star Points when you're in the earlier levels.

******* 
GOOMBA
*******

HP: 2
Attack: 1
Defense: 0
Location: Jr. Troopa's Playground, Goomba Road, Pleasant Path

Their only attack is they jump on you for 1 HP. I don't think other 
explanations for this enemy are needed here, since they're the easiest things 
to destroy in the game.

***************
GRAY MAGIKOOPA
***************

HP: 11
Attack: 3
Defense: 0
Location: Crystal Palace

Gray Magikoopas are probably the most annoying Magikoopas you can battle. As 
any other Magikoopa, they can shoot a magic blast shot at Mario for 3 HP or 
poke him with their wand for 3 HP if they are on the ground. Also, they have 
the annoying ability to go transparent and become invisible, so that nothing 
hits them. If you see one of these in your battle, use you and your partner's 
best attacks to finish these off first before them become real problematic. 
Also, if it's alone in battle, there's a good chance it will run away. If 
they're on a broom, you can use a double jump to knock them off their broom.

****************
GREEN MAGIKOOPA
****************

HP: 11
Attack: 3
Defense: 0
Location: Flower Fields, Crystal Palace

Green Magikoopas aren't as annoying as the other Magikoopas. If they're flying 
on their broom, they can shoot a magic blast attack at you for 3 HP. If they're 
on the ground, they can poke Mario with their wand to do 3 HP damage. Also, 
their special ability is that they can increase the defense power of any enemy 
by 1, so as always, try to take out the Magikoopas first. If it is alone, 
there's a good chance it will run away. If they're on a broom, you can use a 
double jump to knock them off their brooms.

***********
GROOVE GUY
*********** 
 
HP: 7
Attack: 2
Defense: 0
Location: Shy Guy Toy Box

Groove Guys can be annoying, unless you're equipped with the Feeling Fine 
badge. They can charge at Mario for 2 HP, and they can dance in front of Mario 
to make him dizzy, but this can be dodged easily. Also, they can dance away 
from Mario and summon another Groove Guy. Hey, more Star Points for you.

******* 
GULPIT
*******

HP: 12
Attack: 2
Defense: 0
Location: Shiver Snowfield, Shiver Mountain

Whenever you are involved in a battle with a Gulpit, you'll see a pile of rocks 
to the side, with big and small rocks. They can spit the big rocks at you for 7 
HP, while the smaller rocks do 5 HP on you, and when they are out of rocks to 
spit at you, they can lick you for 2 HP. You can attack the pile of rocks if 
you want, but that'd be a waste of time. Try to take out these guys before you 
go for anything else.

*************
HAMMER BROS.
************* 
 
HP: 12
Attack: 5
Defense: 1
Location: Bowser's Castle

Hammer Bros. are pretty annoying enemy, and the worst part is, they can't be 
flipped over like the other Koopas. They can throw a hammer at Mario for 5 HP 
AND shrink him in the process. When their HP is below 4, they'll throw 5 
hammers at once to Mario, each doing 2 HP, AND adding the risk of shrinking 
Mario. So, be sure you have Feeling Fine equipped for these kind of battles, 
otherwise it's going to be a long, long battle.

*********** 
HURT PLANT
***********

HP: 8
Attack: 2
Defense: 0
Location: Jade Jungle

Hurt Plants disguise themselves as Heart Plants, so sometimes, when you examine 
a Heart Plant, it may turn out to be a Hurt Plant and a battle will start. 
Their only attack is that they can bite Mario for 2 HP, and it also has a 
chance of poisoning Mario, so make sure you have the Feeling Fine badge 
equipped when walking around the Jade Jungle.

************
HYPER CLEFT
************ 
 
HP: 4
Attack: 3
Defense: 3
Location: Gusty Gulch

Out in the open field, Hyper Clefts disguise themselves as ordinary rocks, but 
when you come closer to them, they will charge at you and try to start a 
battle. With their high defense of 3, a super hammer attack will only do 1 HP. 
Try to have D-Down Pound equipped when battling them, and then you'll knock 
them out in 1 hit with a super hammer. They can charge at Mario for 3 HP or 
they can super charge themselves, then on the next turn, they can ram into 
Mario for 8 HP and then lose the super charge. Also, you can use items to help 
you out for these.

*************
HYPER GOOMBA
*************

HP: 7
Attack: 1
Defense: 0
Location: Gusty Gulch

These are as weak as regular Goombas, with a few extra goodies. They can jump 
on Mario for 1 HP or they can super charge themselves, and then on the next 
attack, they will ram Mario for 8 HP. If this does happen, your best bet is to 
use Bow's Outta Sight when this happens.

*****************
HYPER PARAGOOMBA
*****************

HP: 7
Attack: 1
Defense: 0
Location: Gusty Gulch

These are the same as Hyper Goombas, except with wings, so the only difference 
is that you can't attack them with your hammer and you can jump on them and 
they'll lose the wings. Just be sure you use Outta Sight whenever they do super 
charge themselves.

*************
JUNGLE FUZZY
************* 
 
HP: 7
Attack: 2
Defense: 0
Location: Jade Jungle

Jungle Fuzzies can suck 2 HP out of you and use it to recover 2 HP of their 
own. To get rid of them, you need to keep tapping A as fast as you can to fill 
up the meter to 100%. Or once they suck you 5 times, they'll jump off of you by 
themselves. Also, they can clone themselves and create another Jungle Fuzzy.

*************
KOOPA TROOPA
************* 
 
HP: 4
Attack: 1
Defense: 1
Location: Pleasant Path, Koopa Bros. Fortress

If you jump on them, it will flip them over, causing their defense to drop to 
0. It takes 2 turns for them to get up, and they will not attack until the turn 
after they get up. Their only attack is that they use the shell toss attack on 
Mario for 1 HP. You can easily finish them off after you flip them on their 
back.

**********
KOOPATROL
**********

HP: 8
Attack: 4
Defense: 3
Location: Bowser's Castle

Because of the spike on their head, they can't be jumped on, unless you have 
the Spike Shield badge equipped. Jumping on them with the Spike Shield can flip 
them over and put their defense on 0. Also, a quake hammer attack is effective 
on flipping them over. Otherwise, your Ultra Hammer will do 3 HP against them 
if not flipped over. They can shell toss attack Mario for 4 HP or they can 
charge their shell, and then attack Mario for 10 HP. Their other ability is 
that they can summon for another Koopatrol. When charged, try to use Star Storm 
to knock them out, before they do a lot of damage on Mario.

*******
LAKITU
******* 
 
HP: 12
Attack: 3
Defense: 0
Location: Flower Fields

Lakitus can throw spinies at Mario for 3 HP damage, and they can also summon 
spinies as well. There's no real strategy into fighting them here, just keep 
using your jump attacks on them until you knock them out.

************
LAVA BUBBLE
************

HP: 9
Attack: 4
Defense: 0
Location: Mt. Lavalava

Since they are fiery enemies, jumping on them will hurt you and fire attacks 
against them are ineffective. Your best options are either using your hammer or 
jumping on them with the Ice Power Badge equipped. They can jump on Mario for 4 
HP or they can shoot fire at your partner, which will knock them out for 2 
turns, unless defended properly.

********
M. BUSH
********

HP: 8
Attack: 3
Defense: 0
Location: Jade Jungle

These bushes try to disguise themselves as regular bushes in the Jade Jungle. 
Their only attack is that they will jump and hit Mario for 3 HP, which also has 
a chance of poisoning him, but as long as you have Feeling Fine equipped, you 
won't have to worry about being poisoned.

**********
MAGIKOOPA
**********

HP: 11
Attack: 6
Defense: 0
Location: Bowser's Castle

These are Blue Magikoopas and are probably the most problematic enemy in the 
game. You know how each colored Magikoopa has a special ability of its own? 
This Magikoopa has ALL of those abilities (raise attack or defense by 1, 
electrically charge an enemy, go transparent, heal 5 HP to one enemy or 3 HP to 
all enemies). On top of that, it can magic blast Mario for 6 HP. Also, it can 
clone itself into a real and fake Magikoopa. You must hit the real one for the 
fake one to go away (so attacks like Star Storm work fine). Dispose of these as 
fast as you can. If they're on a broom, you can use a double jump to knock them 
off their broom.

*********
MEDI GUY
*********

HP: 7
Attack: 1
Defense: 0
Location: Shy Guy Toy Box

Although they can heal other enemies, they seriously are no real threat. Their 
only real attack is that they ram you for 1 HP, and it can be dodged easily. 
Otherwise, they can heal 4 HP of their own or heal 4 HP of another enemy.

*************
MONTY MOLE I
*************

HP: 3
Attack: 2
Defense: 0
Location: Mt. Rugged

These little suckers like to pop out of the ground when you're nearby and try 
to throw rocks at you to start a fight. Their only attack is that they throw 
rocks at Mario for 2 HP, otherwise these things shouldn't be any problems to 
you, unless you fight multiple of them, then they can really mow down your 
health in no time.

**************
MONTY MOLE II
**************

HP: 12
Attack: 3
Defense: 0
Location: Flower Fields

All these Monty Moles are just upgraded versions of the first Monty Moles. Just 
get rid of them quickly before they get to you. The only time you will face 
these enemies is when you need to help Petunia in the early parts of Flower 
Fields.

************
PARAGLOOMBA
************

HP: 7
Attack: 2
Defense: 0
Location: Toad Town Tunnels

These are pretty much the same thing as Gloombas, except they have swings and 
cannot be hit by a hammer. Just jump on them and they'll lose the wings, 
turning into a regular Gloomba. No real strategy in beating these enemies.

***********
PARAGOOMBA
***********

HP: 2
Attack: 1
Defense: 0
Location: Jr. Troopa's Playground, Goomba Road, Pleasant Path

These are just Goombas with wings, so you can't use your hammer on them. Just 
jump on them and they'll lose the wings, turning into a regular Goomba. You 
should have absolutely no problems defeating this enemy.

***********
PARATROOPA
*********** 
 
HP: 4
Attack: 1
Defense: 1
Location: Pleasant Path, Koopa Bros. Fortress

These are just Koopas with wings, so no hammer, and they are a little tougher 
to defeat. Jumping on them once will make them lose their wings and turn into a 
regular Koopa, and if you double jump on it while it's flying, it will lose the 
wings AND flip over, making its defense go down to 0, where you can finish it 
off from there.

**************
PIRANHA PLANT 
**************

HP: 5
Attack: 3
Defense: 0
Location: Forever Forest

Because of the open mouth and teeth pointing upward, jumping on it will damage 
you, so your only attack is by using the hammer. The Piranha Plant's only 
attack is that it can bite you for 3 HP, and these things can take you down 
quickly, so be sure to get rid of them as fast as you can.

******
POKEY
******

HP: 4
Attack: 2
Defense: 0
Location: Dry Dry Desert

Since it's a walking cactus, jumping on it probably isn't the smart thing to 
do, right? It can hit you like a hammer for 2 HP, and it can throw a part of 
its body at you for 2 HP. If it throws all of its body parts at you (so it's 
down to its head), it'll just jump on you for 2 HP. Also, it has the ability to 
summon other Pokeys into the battle. Hey, more Star Points for you.

************
POKEY MUMMY
************

HP: 4
Attack: 2
Defense: 0
Location: Dry Dry Ruins

The only difference from regular Pokeys are that these are blue and are 
poisonous. They will throw a part of its body at you for 2 HP and to poison 
you, which can be prevented if you defend yourself correctly. If it has thrown 
all of your body segments at you, it will use its head to jump on you for 2 HP 
and poison you. Since they do have spikes, remember, use your hammer on them.

***************
PUTRID PIRANHA
***************

HP: 12
Attack: 3
Defense: 0
Location: Jade Jungle, Mt. Lavalava

Unlike the Piranha Plants, these are actually facing Mario instead of pointing 
upwards, so it is safe to jump on them and not get hurt. Their two attacks is 
that they can bite Mario for 3 HP or they can release some horrible breath on 
them for 2 HP and poison Mario, and the poison can be preventable if defended 
correctly.

*********
PYRO GUY
********* 
 
HP: 7
Attack: 4
Defense: 0
Location: Shy Guy Toy Box

Pyro Guys are just Shy Guys on fire, so jumping on them will hurt you, while 
fire attacks are ineffective on them. Their only attack is that they can charge 
at Mario for 4 HP. Also, water/ice attacks are twice as effective on these 
enemies, since they are fire-based. Of course, when you're fighting these in 
groups, a Star Storm will dispose of all of them.

**************
RED MAGIKOOPA
**************

HP: 11
Attack: 3
Defense: 0
Location: Mt. Lavalava

It can shoot a magic blast at Mario for 3 HP or when it's on the ground, it can 
poke Mario with its wand for 3 HP. It can also raise the attack power of any 
enemy by 1. If it is alone, there is a good chance it will run away. If on a 
broom, a double jump will be good enough to knock it off its broom.

**********
RUFF PUFF
********** 
 
HP: 10
Attack: 4
Defense: 0
Location: Flower Fields

Their only attack is that they will ram into Mario for 4 HP. If you face these 
enemies in groups, try to finish them off as fast as you can, otherwise they 
can mow you down pretty quickly, so you may want a healing item or two against 
these enemies.

********
SHY GUY
******** 
 
HP: 7
Attack: 3
Defense: 0
Location: Shy Guy Toy Box

They can charge onto Mario for two HP. Their other attack is that they jump on 
Mario's head for 3 HP. If successful, you'll hear an applause from some crowd. 
If you defend yourself from the attack, the Shy Guy becomes embarrassed. Either 
way, if they're giving you problems, a Star Storm will put them in their place.

********
SKY GUY
********

HP: 7
Attack: 3
Defense: 0
Location: Shy Guy Toy Box

Their only attack is that they can use a slingshot to attack Mario for 3 HP. 
Another thing to take note of is that jumping on the balloons rather than the 
Sky Guy will cause the balloons to pop and the Sky Guy will fall to the ground, 
turning into a regular Shy Guy.

**********
SPEAR GUY
********** 
 
HP: 7
Attack: 3
Defense: 0
Location: Jade Jungle

One thing you should take note of is its spear. If it's pointing upward, 
jumping on it will hurt you. If the spear is pointing directly at Mario, using 
hammer attacks will not work. Now, for attacks, they can poke Mario with its 
spear for 3 HP. They also can throw their spear at Mario for 3 HP, but doing 
this will cause the Spear Guy to lose all of its makeup and become a regular 
Shy Guy. At last, they can also summon other Spear Guys into the battle. Hey, 
more Star Points for you.

***************
SPIKED GLOOMBA
***************

HP: 7
Attack: 3
Defense: 0
Location: Toad Town Tunnels

Since it has a spike on its head, jumping on it will hurt you, so use hammer 
attacks. The only attack out of this enemy is that it will jump on Mario for 3 
HP.

**************
SPIKED GOOMBA
************** 
 
HP: 2
Attack: 2
Defense: 0
Location: Jr. Troopa's Playground, Goomba Road, Pleasant Path

Since it has a spike on its head, jumping on it will hurt you, so use hammer 
attacks. The only attack out of this enemy is that it will jump on Mario for 2 
HP.

**********
SPIKE TOP
**********

HP: 4
Attack: 3
Defense: 4
Location: Mt. Lavalava, Toad Town Tunnels

This enemy is really annoying. Try to stay out of battle with it if you can. It 
can shoot its shell at you for 3 HP. And with a really high defense, a super 
hammer will do nothing on it and an ultra hammer will do 2 HP damage. Your best 
bet is to use a hammer attack with D-Down Pound equipped or use the easy way 
out and get rid of them by using Star Storm.

****** 
SPINY
****** 
 
HP: 5
Attack: 4
Defense: 3
Location: Flower Fields, Toad Town Tunnels

Just like the Spike Top, these are a huge pain to defeat, so try to stay away 
from battle if you can. Their only attack is that they will roll into Mario for 
4 HP. With a defense of 3, an Ultra Hammer will do 3 HP on it, so like the 
Spike Top, using D-Down Pound will make your life a lot easier with these 
enemies. Better yet, knock them all out by using Star Storm.

******** 
SPY GUY
******** 
 
HP: 7
Attack: 2
Defense: 0
Location: Shy Guy Toy Box

Each time you attack a Spy Guy, it will switch weapons between a slingshot and 
a hammer. It can attack Mario with its slingshot for 2 HP, and if it attacks 
you with its hammer, it'll do 2 HP AND make Mario lose one of his commands for 
a short period of time (jump, hammer, items, etc).

************
STONE CHOMP
************ 
 
HP: 4
Attack: 3
Defense: 1
Location: Dry Dry Ruins

You will only fight these enemies upon getting the Diamond, Lunar, and Pyramid 
Stones. Their only attack is that they can bite Mario for 3 HP. Your Super 
Hammer can do 3 HP on them, but a D-Down Pound out of your Super Hammer will 
knock them out in one hit.

********
SWOOPER
******** 
 
HP: 4
Attack: 2
Defense: 0
Location: Dry Dry Ruins

If they are on the ceiling during battle, jumping or using your hammer attack 
will miss then. Attacks like Shell Shot, Hammer Throw, or Quake Hammer will 
damage them. Their only attack is that they can bite Mario for 2 HP.
 
*********
SWOOPULA
*********

HP: 8
Attack: 2
Defense: 0
Location: Crystal Palace

Like Swoopers, sometimes they may be on the ceiling, in which case only attacks 
such as Hammer Throw, Shell Shot, and Quake Hammer will work on them. Their 
method of attacking is similar to the way a Jungle Fuzzy attacks Mario. They 
will suck on Mario for 2 HP and use it to recover 2 HP of their own, and you 
must keep tapping A to raise the meter to 100% before they leave you alone. If 
they suck on Mario 5 times (10 HP), it will stop on its own.

*************
WHITE CLUBBA
************* 
 
HP: 12
Attack: 5 
Defense: 0
Location Shiver Mountain, Crystal Palace

If these are in groups, they can mow you down pretty quickly. One of their 
attacks is that they can club Mario for 5 HP or whack him 3 times for 2 HP 
each, doing as much as 6 HP, unless each attack is defended properly.

****************
WHITE MAGIKOOPA 
****************

HP: 11
Attack: 3
Defense: 0
Location: Jade Jungle, Mt. Lavalava, Crystal Palace

White Magikoopas can heal all of the enemies on the field for 3 HP each, or 
they can heal one enemy alone for 5 HP. Otherwise, they can use a magic blast 
attack at you for 3 HP or poke Mario with their wand for 3 HP. If on a broom, 
you can double jump on them to make them fall off their broom. When they're 
alone on the battlefield, there is a good chance they will run away.

*****************
YELLOW MAGIKOOPA
***************** 
 
HP: 11
Attack: 3
Defense: 0
Location: Flower Fields, Crystal Palace

The special ability for a Yellow Magikoopa is that they can give a static 
charge to another enemy on the battle field, so if you jumped on the charged 
enemy, a double jump wouldn't work and you'd lose 1 HP in the process. As any 
other Magikoopa, they can use a magic blast on Mario for 3 HP or poke Mario 
with their wand for 3 HP. If on a broom, you can use a double jump to make them 
fall off their broom. When they're alone on the battlefield, there is a good 
chance they will run away.

=====================
7. Koopa Koot Favors
=====================

That old crabby Koopa in Koopa Village is always in need of favors. When you 
want to do favors during your side quests, you can always check out this 
section to see what is coming. The farther you get in the game, the more favors 
you'll be able to do for him. These favors may look impossible, but with the 
help of the Toad Town Tunnels warp pipe express, it'll make your life a lot 
easier.

----------------------------
After Kooper joins the team
----------------------------

1. Koopa Koot's first favor is that he wants the "Koopa Legends" book from 
Kolorado's wife. Enter the house to the left of Kooper's and talk to her. 
She'll go to her back room and give you the book. Return it to Koopa Koot for 1 
coin.

2. Koopa Koot wants a Sleepy Sheep (hey, I'm tired too). If you have one in 
your inventory, great, give it to her. If not, go to the Toad Town shop and get 
one. She'll reward you with a coin AND a silver credit to play the jump attack 
game in the Toad Town Playroom.

-----------------------------
After Chapter 1 is Completed
-----------------------------

3. Koopa Koot wants you to go to Goomba Village and get a tape from Goompa. So 
go inside the house at Goomba Village and talk to Goompa. For a weird reason, 
the tape is hidden behind a tape. He won't tell us what's on the tape, but 
bring it back to Koopa Koot for 1 coin.

4. Koopa Koot will ask for some nice Koopa Tea. To get this, bring a Koopa Leaf 
to Tayce T. To find the Koopa Leaf, it is located in the bushes near the Save 
Block. When you bring the Koopa Tea back to Koopa Koot, you get three star 
pieces!

5. For once, Luigi will have a role in the game. Koopa Koot wants Luigi's 
autograph, so head down to your house and talk to Luigi. Bring the autograph to 
Koopa Koot for 1 coin.

-----------------------------
After Chapter 2 is Completed
-----------------------------

6. Koopa Koot says on his way shopping, he dropped his wallet somewhere near 
the area. The wallet is located in the flowery bush in front of the blue Koopa 
house near the Save Block. Your reward for returning it is 1 coin.

7. Koopa Koot wants a Tasty Tonic this time. You can buy one in the Toad Town 
Shop near Shy Guy Toy Box if you don't have one on you. Bring one back to her 
for one coin.

8. Probably the most annoying favor, you'll need to get Merluvee's autograph. 
Go to Shooting Star summit and talk to Merluvee (remember to walk around 
table). She will if you promise her to get her a crystal ball from Merlee. 
Merlee is at Dry Dry Outpost. To get to her, go up the path to the right of the 
Toad House. Jump over the crates and you'll find her. Talk to her and she'll 
give you the crystal ball. Bring it back to Merluvee for her autograph. Bring 
the autograph to Koopa Koot for 3 star pieces (worth doing too).

-----------------------------
After Chapter 3 is Completed
-----------------------------

9. Koopa Koot's been in his house so long that he's outdated on the news. Go to 
the newspaper at Toad Town and read both the front AND back side. Talk to him 
afterwards for 1 coin.

10. Koopa Koot thinks he's going to die shortly and wants a Life Shroom for 
insurance. If you got one, give it to him now, if not, you can get one at Boo's 
Shop in Boo's Mansion. Your reward is one coin AND a Cold Credit, which lets 
you play Smash Attack at the Toad Town playhouse.

11. Koopa Koot is requesting a recipe fresh from Tayce T., which is a Nutty 
Cake. Go to Goomba Village and smash the tree for a Goomnut. Bring it to Tayce 
T. to make a Nutty Cake. Bring the Nutty Cake to Koopa Koot for 1 coin.

-----------------------------
After Chapter 4 is Completed
-----------------------------

12. Koopa Koot lives up to his name here. He wants you to go over to Koopa's 
house and see why that house is so noisy. Make sure Bombette is your partner. 
Talk to the Bob-omb inside (one on the right) and Bombette will flip out on 
them. After they quiet down, talk to Koopa Koot for 3 Star Pieces.

13. Koopa Koot says that a Boo in Boo's Mansion has a photo of his. Go to Boo's 
Mansion and talk to the Book in the main hall and he'll give you an Old Photo. 
Bring it back to Koopa Koot for 1 coin.

14. Koopa Koot is asking for Koopasta this time. This requires the Cookbook 
from Shy Guy Toy Box. Bring Tayce T Dried Pasta and a Koopa Leaf to make this 
recipe. Afterwards, give it to Koopa Koot for 1 coin.

-----------------------------
After Chapter 5 is Completed
-----------------------------

15. Koopa Koot's glasses are missing, and just like his wallet, they're in the 
area somewhere. The glasses are in the middle bush in front of the Toad House. 
Bring them back to Koopa Koot for 1 coin.

16. Koopa Koot wants a lime this time, meaning we have to venture out into Dry 
Dry Desert. From the Dry Dry Outpost entrance, go into the desert. Now go down 
two spaces so you get into the oasis. Smash the tree on the right to find the 
Lime. Bring it back to Koopa Koot for 3 Star Pieces.

17. Koopa Koot wants a Kooky Cookie. You need a Koopa Leaf and a Cake Mix from 
Shy Guy Toy Box to this one. Bring these to Tayce T., and then bring the Kooky 
Cookie back to Koopa Koot for 1 coin.

-----------------------------
After Chapter 6 is Completed
-----------------------------

18. One of the Boos out in Gusty Gulch has a package for Koopa Koot. The Boo 
that you need to talk to is the one in front of (and slightly to the left) of 
the Save Block. He will go look for it. What you need to do is leave and 
reenter the area. Talk to him for the package. Give Koopa Koot the package for 
1 coin.

19. Koot's second to last favor is a Coconut. Practically any tree you hit in 
Lavalava Island will give you a Coconut. Just give it to him for 1 coin.

20. His last favor is a Red Jar from Dry Dry Outpost. To get it, you must buy 
the items at the shop in this order: Dusty Hammer, Dried Pasta, Dusty Hammer, 
Dried Shroom. By doing this, the clerk will give you the Red Jar. Bring it to 
Koopa Koot to get the last 3 Star Pieces from her.

No more favors after this.
