Introduction [002]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hello, i'm Mario Legend, and welcome to my walkthrough. This is my first ever
walkthrough, so please be nice in regards to information and setouts. I
realise this may be quite an old game, but thinking of all the things people
have invented and created, like emulators and the popular Wii Downloads, i
thought this may be a good idea.

Something a DO realise is that i couldn't give you 100 % in this walkthrough,
but i'll promise i will keep updating as much as i can. I realise I'm an
Australian, and yet my walkthrough has American spelling and grammar, but
that's because i couldn't get my spell check working in an Australian Spell
Check. I hope you have fun, please email as much as you can REGARDING my
walkthrough, for say, spelling mistakes, wrong information etc., and just,
well, have fun, and i hope you have as much fun with this game as i did.

And an important note. Whenever i write a (2) next to the Star Pieces, it
means there is another one if you re-enter the area. I am not sure if that
was just my game wrecking, though...

Good luck!

The Story [004]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Once upon a mushroom...
Far, far away beyond the sky, way above the clouds, it's been said that there
was a haven where the Stars lived. In the sanctuary of Star Haven there 
rested a fabled treasure called the Star Rod, which had the power to grant 
all wishes. Using this wondrous Star Rod, the seven revered Star Spirits 
watched over our peaceful world carefully...very carefully.

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

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

Characters [006]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mario:   The totally awesome mustached man is back! Unfortunately for all
         the wrong reasons. Bowser kidnapped Peach, Star Spirits are 
         going missing and towns are falling apart with monster attacks!
         Luckily for Mario, with the help of his fellow companions, he
         tries to save Peach once again, but that depends on your strengths.

Peach:   Damsels in distress are very common in Mario games, so very common.
         Peach, the pink-dressed Princess (as I call her) is once again
         kidnapped by the evil "Koopa King" and needs Mario's help...once 
         again...But with the help of her companion, Twink, she's able to
         contact Mario, and give him hints on the next location of any
         Star Spirit, soon enough resulting in a cataclysmic defeat of
         Bowser and Kammy Koopa, letting Peach be set FREE! (that spoiled it
         the game...) 
   
Bowser:  The "Koopa King" is BACK! For once I'd REALLY like to see Kamek or
         Kammy Koopa led a Mario game, but not today. Kammy Koopa IS Bowser's
         helpful magical servant, but an annoying one at that. Bowser is 
         NOT controllable in the game, unlike Mario/Peach, so he practically
         is in this is game as a Mega-Boss. After versing him multiple times,
         maybe Peach could be saved...

Partners: Like in most Mario games, he always has a helper, guide or partner
         him or help him throughout the game. This time he has 8 companions,
         which help with certain events and battles in the game. There
         are Koopa's, fish and many more to befriend! (6 more to be exact)


Twink:   Peach's helpful companion, Twink sends messages from the floating
         Bowser castle back to the Mushroom Kingdom, to help Mario in his
         quest. Twink is like a mailman, or mailwoman, I never exactly did
         check Twink's gender. But I most definitely think that HE is a boy.

Kammy
Koopa:   Kammy Koopa is Bowserís most trusted servant, if Bowser has ANY 
         trust. She is a old aged Magikoopa, and feeds Bowser about Mario's 
         current whereabouts, and gives Bowser some ideas on defeating Mario
         too. If only Peach had a teleporter to escape from Bowser, but that
         would end the series.

Star
Spirits: The most HELPFUL people, or "its", in the game I think are the Star
         Spirits, because they give you some powerful attacks! These include
         healing, attacking, sleeping and time-enducing moves! Although 
         the attacks DO take some Star Power away, the amount of damage and 
         helpfulness does pay its rewards. These Spirits have been scattered
         around Mushroom Kingdom, and it's your job to find them, and save
         them!

Luigi:   Only seen at the start of the game, he doesn't serve much purpose.

Toads:   Although useless and utterly, uhh, useless, these Toads are just 
         here for some help and maybe some items, but it depends on who you 
         ask. Maybe Toads are very greedy, and some Toads just Cook...yes 
         cook.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In-game Knowledge [007]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When in game, you should know about some things before you start your 
adventure, here they are...

-HP (Heart Points)
These are basically Marioís/an enemyís life, or stamina. The higher your 
points are, the more you can stand up to a powerful attack and just laugh at 
it. These are redeemable with items such as mushrooms, but cannot exceed the
total MAX you currently have. Say you have 10/15, reviving 10 HP with a Super
Mushroom DOES NOT make your HP 20/15, like some bosses have the power to do.
This status can be upgraded at a the leveling up stage by 5 points per level
up.

-FP (Flower Points)
These, are a bit harder to explain. Basically these are like your Magic 
Power, which give you the ability to do some special moves depending on what 
and how much you have. These special moves can be made by equipping badges, 
and can also be made after getting certain items, or even some partners. If 
you donít have enough FP from your MAX to execute a move, then the move does 
not go ahead. The higher your FP the more you can use these moves, which are 
very useful.
After you get some certain partners, ie, Goombario, after some  vigorous 
adventures and obstacles, you will find what you call a "Super Block" which 
upgrades your partners Rank by 1, and stops upgrading at rank 3 (2 Dots.) 
Every Rank upgrade, your partner will learn a new move, which usually costs a
fair amount of FP.

-BP (Badge Points)
In this game, there are things called, Badge Points, which let you use some
badges depending on how many badge points you have. Badge points vary from 
0-7 or more, and are very useful in battle and outside battle, depending on 
what badge you've obtained/equipped.


-Enemy Descriptions
Throughout the game, I made boxes made of -'s. These are Boss/Mini-boss
strategies, and are what help you to beat a boss. The formula is simple. The
top part of the box is the name, the second, is the information, and the 
third is what happens after. Example: 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle: <Name>
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

HP: <Max HP>
ATK:<Attack Power+Attacks>
DEF:<Defense Power>

Strategy: <Guide on how to beat it>
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
<After the battle>
--------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

However, this is different compared to the information given in Section B. It
lists all the enemies life, attack, defense, first location, about the enemy
and Goombario's Log. More descriptive, and better to use.


The Start Menu 

-Stats
Shows Mario's level at the top ranging from 1-27, Mario's current number of 
coins from battles and trades, your time spent playing Paper Mario (the 
current file), the number of Star Pieces you have collected during your 
journey and your current Hammer/Boots. Also your HP and FP out of your max, 
Current/MAX, and your Star Points from battle and your current amount of Star
energy in your Star Gauge.

-Badges
Shows amount of Badges you currently own, and the other tab shows how many 
badges you have currently equipped. Having more than one badge will be 
grouped into the section most appropriate and to the left it will show how 
much BP you have and how much you have already used equipping the badges you 
have.

-Items
Has all the items you have currently obtained during your adventure. It's 
separated into 2 groups which shows the items that are most important (Key 
Items) and the items that are usable in battle. (Items...Items)
  
Key items are for a special event, or are just too valuable to be listed 
as a "item" for you may not be able to progress throughout the game 
without them, like a scarf.

Items items are for your everyday battling and healing. These can be stored 
up to a maximum of 10 items *sob* and can be used anytime during your battle 
phase or outside a battle on field. These items can heal your FP and HP 
depending on what you have, and can vary on the amount recovered depending on
the type of item you have obtained.

You will have to constantly say goodbye to these items because of the poor
amount you can carry at 1 time.

-Party
After getting Goombario as your first party member, this tab can become 
available for your using. It shows all 8 party members, after you've 
befriended them. It also shows their current abilities, depending on whoever 
member is rotated to the front. Next to the partner also shows their Rank, 
which varies from 1/2/3. These are represented by dots, R1 having none, R2 
having 1 dot, and R3 having 2 dots.

-Spirits
After saving the first Star Spirit in the Koopa Bro. Fortress, this Menu Tab 
becomes accessible. This shows you the amount of spirits you have saved, and 
where you saved them. After you save a certain Spirit, the silhouette is
replaced by the Star Spirits actual self, and allows you to see the Star 
Spirits attack that it gave to you as its aid to your quest.

-Map
Basically it shows the Map of Mushroom Kingdom, and the paths you must take 
to get to a area. After visiting an area, the name and location of the area 
is shown on the map, for you to view. Although hardly ever used, it may come
in handy sooner or later...?


Status Changes

-Attack/Defense UP
Being a good ailment, this can come in very useful when executing certain
attacks. Say for instance, after raising your attack about 5 times with a 
certain Item or Power, it can cause a higher consecutive damage counter 
depending on how much you raised, what badges you have equipped and your 
current Boots. Say you have Super Boots with 5-Charged up attacks, your 
damage will be 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 1, 1, 1 etc. Depending on the enemies 
defense, the damage will be different. For a enemy with a high defense, your
attack is subtracted from its defense. So, if you have a attack of 4, and 
your enemies defense is 1, 4-1=3, so your damage will only cause up to 3 
damage. Also, after raising your defense, your enemies attack is subtracted by 
your defense, basically the reverse of raising your attack.

To figure out what happens when ATK/DEF goes down, do the opposite. So, if 
you lose 1 DEF after you had 3, your enemies power against you becomes +1 of
what it did before.

-Zap Tap/Electrified
After equipping the Zap Tap badge, Mario becomes a source of Static energy. 
When a enemy attacks Mario directly, or in a kinetic manner, the attacker is
hit back with a static shock, causing some line of damage.

-Status Recovery
After equipping Happy Heart/Happy Flower or using a certain mushroom, Mario 
will slowly recover his HP/FP at a steady pace and will continue until it 
reaches the MAX. After using FP or losing HP after it reaches the MAX, the 
recovery system will start again, but thatís only for the Happy Heart/Flower 
badges. Using a mushroom will fade after a while.

-Transparency
After Mario becomes transparent, basically this means he cannot be attacked 
until the countdown reaches 0. Easy. Unfortunately, some enemies can trigger 
this ability also, which makes it very fair...I guess...

-Rock Hard Mario
When Mario finds a Stone Cap, he can turn INTO stone, which makes all damage
to Mario =0! But, threes a catch. Mario CANNOT attack once the Stone Cap has 
been equipped, so only your partner may attack, if your partner is able to,
that is.

-Sleep
After becoming drowsy, or falling asleep almost instantaneously, Mario cant
attack as long as the countdown sequence hasn't reached 0 yet. Getting 
attacked when sleeping, can cure this ailment.

-Dizzy
When you're Dizzy, attacking a opponent seems like trying to fit a elephant 
in a needle, even though you wont try. Sometimes, the elephant can be quite 
small, or the needle big, so it can fit. In other words, sometimes you land 
an attack, and sometimes you don't.

-Poison
When Mario is poisoned, Mario loses a Heart every time it's his turn, and 
always, ALWAYS, will do 1 damage. Luckily, sometimes you live through the 
poison because of White cells, but sometimes...*sniffle* This can be avoided
by equipping the "Feeling Fine" badge, or just curing Mario with an item, 
simple.

-Freeze
Once Mario meets Ice-based enemies, way way WAY beyond the start of the 
game, he freezes. Like the Sleep ailment, you must wait for the countdown, 
or get hit by a very powerful fire attack.

-Shock/Paralysis
Self explanatory. Basically its like freeze or any other change. The enemy
really cannot attack.

-Time Stop
When Mario uses Time Out, he literally freezes time around the enemies. This
can last for up to 4 turns, and yet, they move when you hit them for some
reason...

NOTE: Some of these ailments can be caused to an enemy.

Walkthrough
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Please Read This -
------------------
Some notes before we start.
-If you want to see an enemies description, type * then the enemy name. e.g.,
 *Goomba. Type the singular form only. Finding Bosses is a little more hard,
 type exactly as a wrote, e.g.. if I wrote for a title Boss Battle: Bowser???,
 type the part after the colon, so don't type *Boss Battle etc, type the name
 of the boss, ie. *Bowser???

-If you do not follow my walkthrough exactly as I wrote it, things may turn
 out a little confusing. Say I said that you should go Toad Town Tunnels,
 and you don't. Then I start talking nonsense about Warp Pipes, that's what
 will happen.

-Each time we exit and enter a area, I will list the areas name, items, 
 badges, star pieces and enemies that lurk in it. I will always list items
 regardless of whether they are obtainable or not, that's just a indication
 that you missed something, or you'll need to backtrack later.

-If you found something and I missed it, please email me. I know this guide
 isn't perfect. but it's as best as I got, for a first try.

-Always read a Boss Section BEFORE you enter it's area. I use certain badge
 types to defeat it, so it's good to read it to see the badges I say before
 you realize you haven't equipped it.

-At times when Mario has no Super Boots and cannot flip the Hidden Floor
 panels, I quoted before the guide to the area 'Before you do anything, 
 remember there IS something called a hidden floor panel here, with a Star 
 Piece, so that you can come back when you obtain some new boots.' Copy that
 quote (without the quotation marks) into the search box (ctrl+f) and revisit
 the areas that pop up. Or, just type part of that sentence, like 'Before you
 do anything,' to do it quicker.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

********************************
The Floating Castle [008]
********************************

==Mario's House==

Firstly, we start, at Mario's House, oh what a beautiful house. Firstly,
we see Parakarry deliver a letter to Mario's House, shortly before Luigi
comes out and takes the letter and reads it to Mario, inside the house
with the giant "Mario" sign, not "Luigi." Apparently (yes apparently), the
letter is from Princess Peach of Mushroom Kingdom, inviting both brothers
to a Party back at her castle, along with many other distant townsfolk.
(Notice the N64 Super Mario Background?) Like any other "friend," Mario 
departs his home into the pipe just outside his door to...

==???==

Oh, well THATS descriptive. Anyway, watch Mario and Luigi walk all the way
to Princess Peach's castle, until you gain control inside.

==Peach's Castle==

Anyway, make your way up the close staircase, through the brown door with 
the star on it. Don't bother with the other doors, everything is locked... 
but the kitchen (OBVIOUSLY.) Anyway, on the next floor, once again make
your way up the staircase yet again, into another brown door with a 
star on it. After that, make your way up the marble staircase, and enter
yet another, brown door, with a star on it (when will this end!)

NOTE: Before you enter that door, you can enter Peach's room by speaking
to the guard on the 3rd floor several times until he lets you in.

After going through the door with the Marble staircase, continue through
the incredibly long corridor to the door and enter. After another 
half-journey through another incredibly long corridor, you meet up with
Princess Peach, the Princess of Mushroom Kingdom...with apparently no nose?
Anyway, after some chit chat, Peach invites Mario to some alone time on
the Castle Balcony. Unfortunately, no balcony today, because Mushroom 
Kingdom is going for a SPACE TRIP! YAY!

After some time going up up up into the distant skies, Peach is astounded
by the starry backyard...then, Bowser suddenly crashes through the window,
with his faithful servant Kammy Koopa. After some talking, Mario foolishly
challenges Bowser, even though he's powered up with a Star Rod.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle: Bowser - First Encounter                       
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
HP:  10                                                
ATK: Slash- 1/2

DEF: 0/1    
                                          
Basically, just Jump on him. I'm not even going to do a strategy for him, 
threes no point for you will lose no matter what, and if you do win, your
game will wreck. So let him defeat you after several jump attacks.          
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
After Bowser wins (for once), he rants and raves about his victory, and
shoots Mario into the sky, with a thunderbolt attack from his Star Rod, so
Mario plummets into the clouds, while Peach is left alone in the evil 
clutches of the Koopa King...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Prologue: A Plea From The Stars [009]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1) Hammers and Gates [010]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Forest Clearing==

As Mario lays on the floor unconscious, 7 Spirits, the Star Spirits, come
down to aid Mario. 2 Star Spirits talk for a while, as the elder Spirit,
Eldstar, suggests they lend Mario power to walk again. After some powering
up for Mario, the Star Spirits leave, as two Goombas come to aid Mario.
It turns out the Goomba, Goombaria, recognizes Mario due to his signature
clothes and moustache, so she calls the rest of her family over to take
Mario back to the Toad Inn, in a town called: Goomba Village

==Goomba Village==

As your still sleeping in the Toad Inn, Eldstar once again beckons Mario to
wake up from his current state, and come to a location known as Shooting
Star Summit, which you will be visiting very soon. After Eldstar pops into
thin air, a Toad comes in as Mario wakes up, and mentions that this town
only has 1 family in the whole town, and how that you may have dreamed
about the whole thing. Once you gain control, head out the door. 

Go to your right, and Save your game for the first time. Head south and 
examine the bush for a coin. This is the only form of currency in this 
game. Now, head right to the Goomba Village gate, where the man is pacing.
He says that the gate is currently broken, so you'll have to wait for it to
get fixed. Now, head to the giant house to the right of the Toad Town Inn
and enter.

Make your way to the back of the house via the door, and talk to the Man on
the veranda. His name is Goompa, and he's currently fixing the veranda. So,
head outside again, and Goombario will tell Mario his dad, the one pacing 
at the gate, has finished fixing it. Go talk to his dad at the gate, and
after some talking, the evil Kammy Koopa appears, and drops a Yellow Block
onto the gate! Now, you can't pass through. After Goombario's dad throws a
tantrum about how he just fixed the gate, he suggests that you go see Goompa,
who's currently fixing the veranda, for a Hammer. So go do so and head into 
the back of the big house again.

Once you arrive at the back, Mario realizes that the veranda is gone! Talk
about Sherlock Homes. After Mario floats in mid-air for a while, which did
remind me about the Road Runner and Kyote show, he plummets to the ground,
floating like paper onto the floor behind Goomba Village.

==Under the Village==

And a Repel Gel, so come back for that too when you get a new hammer (to the
south in the grassy area is both the Repel Gel and Star Piece.)

Pass the broken down veranda to your right and talk to Goompa. He says that
he may have dropped the Hammer on landing, so you must look for it. Head
to your left into the next area. And don't try to destroy the Yellow Block,
waste of time.

==Under the Village, Left==
Items: 
 Hammer in the leftmost bush
 Coins in all bushes but lower right bush (4)
 Coins in the upper right bush (2)
 Coins (2) in the right and middle tree (2)
 Coins (1-10) in the Coin Block to the North (1-10)
 Peach Doll in rightmost tree
---------------------
Firstly, Goompa says his Hammer is hidden somewhere around this area, and 
it looks like (see example.) Firstly, examine the bushes for 6 coins, and
by bushes, that means every, last, one. Then, once you examine the bush to
the left, you obtain a Hammer, YAY! That adds a new attack in battle BTW.
Now, hit every tree for 2 coins and a Peach Doll, and the brown block to
the north for 1-10 coins, depending on your speed. After you get all the
items, head out of this area, but before we do that we have to defeat a new 
boss that bashes up Goompa. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mini-Boss Battle: Jr. Troopa - First Encounter 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
HP:  5
ATK: Jump - 1/2
DEF: 0

Firstly, doesn't matter what attack you use, so just Hammer or Jump on him
at will. This battle is won no matter what for there really is no way to
lose...unless you do nothing for about 10 turns, but thatís just plainly
weird. After some jumping, he powers himself up, so his attacks go up by 1.
Doesn't make a difference. 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
As the little...person gets defeated, he runs off stating that 'I'll be 
back.' 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

==Under the Village==
Items: 
 Coin in the ? Block, southwest of broken veranda.
 Coins after jumping on the spring (5)
 Mushroom in tree south of broken veranda
 Fire Flower on the ledge from jumping on the spring
---------------------
Back at this area, head right and Hammer the tree for a free Mushroom. Go
southwest for a free coin in the ? block, and then head right and smash 
the yellow block, to open the pathway. Head towards the floating box, that
looks clear and has a heart in it, to fully replenish your status. If you
head from there, you will see a Grayish looking block, which is unbreakable
at this point of the game. Head north and jump up onto the 3 ledges towards
the spring, and jump on it to receive 5 coins, and a fire flower by holding
left while in mid-air. After that, go down and head left to the next area.

==Under the Village, Right==
Items:
 Coin in highest tree
Star Pieces:
 Left of highest tree
Enemies:
 Goomba, Spike Goomba, Paragoomba
---------------------
As you can see, I've added 2 new sections called Star Pieces and Enemies.
Before I explain what they mean, let's head to the right and up the ledges,
to meet the first enemy of this game called, the Goomba.
 
NOTE: Goompa mentions something about a 'First Strike' attack, this is when
you hit a enemy before battle to cause some damage before entering combat.
Read my enemy list for more details about the enemy. After defeating it, head
right and defeat the new Spiked Goomba enemy.

After that, head across the next pair of ledges, and battle the Paragoomba,
AND, after that, head left and hit the tree for a coin, and head more to the 
left to find a Star Piece. Oooo, wonder what it does. Well, we shall find 
out soon. Jump down and head to the right again. After you head right, the
path will curve and then enter the next area.

==Goomba Village==
Items: 
 Goomnut in towns only tree
Badges: 
 Power Jump, present from Goompa
Star Pieces: 
 Goombaria gives you one by returning her Peach Doll.
---------------------
After you enter, open the gate and Goombario and Goombaria talk to Goompa 
about the veranda and yourselves, as Goompa gets a present for Mario, which
turns out to be a Badge! Read the badge section for more on these. When he
is the process of finding it, Goombario notices that you had a Peach Doll,
which belongs to Goombaria. After choosing to give it to her, you obtain a
Star Piece! After some chit-chat, Goombario is soon enough allowed to join
your team! Check Section A for a list of Goombario's attacks + description.

After that, head to the right, and hit the tree for a Goomnut. Then, smash
the yellow block to access the next area.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2) The King and I [011]  
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Toad Town Path==
Items: 
 Coins (2) Hit the two ? blocks
Enemies: 
 Goomba, Paragoomba
---------------------
Head to the right and read the sign stating "No Goombas," and a Goomba will
come to life from the picture. NOTE: From now on, every NEW enemy you see, 
you must Tattle, just some forward warning. But, if you want to leave it to
me, and you don't want to, thatís fine with me. After defeating it, continue
right and defeat yet another two Goombas. Head more to the right, and hit 
the two ? blocks for 2 coins, and head right and defeat the Paragoomba, and
head into the next area.

==Toad Town Path==
Items:
 Mushroom from sign
Badges:
 Close Call Badge in red ? Block
Enemies:
Spike Goomba, Paragoomba
---------------------
Head right and defeat the Spike Goomba, and hit the nearby RED ? Block for
a Close Call badge. NOTE: Red ? Blocks will always contain a badge. Read 
the upcoming sign for a Mushroom, and defeat the Paragoomba flying to the
right. Head towards the nearby exit, and head into the next area after heal-
in at the Heal Block.

In this next area, you hear some people start calling out about Mario being
in the area, and it turns out to be the Goomba Bros. I call them the Mario 
and Luigi evolution, but then it ruins the hilariousness of the weird and a
bit too big Goombas. After some talking, they challenge you to a battle.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mini-Boss Battle: Red and Blue Goomba Bros.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Red Goomba     Blue Goomba
HP:  7         HP:  6
ATK: 1         ATK: 1
DEF: 0         DEF: 0

Both only having a weak headbonk attack, the Goomba Bros. are very easy to
defeat. Unlike most Goombas, this troublesome duo has higher HP than usual
Goombas. Firstly, attack the Blue Goomba with Mario's Jump or Hammer. Once 
the Blue Goomba dies, attack the Red one! Easy as pie.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
After a very brotherly beating, the two Goombas run away crying like little
babies, also stating, like Jr. Troopa, 'We'll be back.'
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Head back to the previous area, and heal at the Heal Block. Head back to 
were you battled the Brothers, and head southeast of the spring, to a Save
block, for you'll be needing it. After saving, head onto the spring and go
to the right into the next area.

In this area, the Mushroom on that signpost is actually a Goomba in disguise,
so don't get fooled. Unless you want some Star Points, like I did, battle
the little guy. After that, head right and read the signpost, with writing
spelling out "Goomba King's Fortress Ahead," which is clearly our next des-
tination point. 

==Goomba King's Fortress==
Items: 
 1 Coin in the tree northeast of bridge
 Super Mushroom in hidden path before eastern exit
Badges: 
 None
Star Pieces: 
 In the tree left of the fortress
Enemies: 
 Goomba King Boss & Goomba Bros
---------------------
When you enter, you hear the usual Bowser entry music, but for some reason,
Bowser isn't here! Once you see the Goomba Bros. run into the Fortress and
call for the Goomba King's help, Mario and Goombario enter the area and as
Goombario mentions about the vast structure, and how there is a bridge on 
the other side. After he talks, a googley-eyed giant Goomba comes up, and
challenges Mario to a battle. And this time, we have to defeat the little
Goomba Bros. again! 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle: Goomba King & Goomba Bros.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Goomba King
HP:  10
ATK: Leg Sweep- 1
     Bramble Stomp- 2
DEF: 0

Red Goomba     Blue Goomba
HP:  2         HP:  2
ATK: 1         ATK: 1
DEF: 0         DEF: 0

This battle is extremely easy, if you know what you are doing. Get Mario 
to jump on the Goomnut tree in the backround, so a bramble falls onto the
Goomba King causing 3 damage, and as the bramble bounces away, it ALSO 
hits the Goomba Bros, destroying them instantly! After that, Power Jump the
Goomba King twice, and Headbonk him once, and you have defeated him!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
After the battle, the Goomba King refuses to lose, and runs back into his 
Fortress.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now, head towards the Fortress door, and you overhear the Goomba King talk
about a "switch" that Mario shouldn't find. So let's find it! Firstly, hit
the nearby tree to receive a Star Piece, then head southeast towards the
fortress, and you'll see a light green bush. Shake it, and a Blue Switch 
comes out. After you hammer it, the Goomba King, ever so slowly, warns you
about a switch, and that you shouldn't press it. Luckily, for Mario that is,
the switch is actually a self-destruct mechanism that destroys the Fortress!
After it plummets to the floor, a new bridge will form. Go across the newly
formed bridge via the fortress, and hit the tree above you to get 1 coin.
Head right and then before exiting this area, head south to find a gap in
the fencing. Enter it and head down the ledges to the right and Hammer the
Brick Block to reveal a hidden ? Block! Hit THIS to get a Super Mushroom. 
Now you can exit via the eastern exit.

Oh, what's this? Kammy Koopa...

Bowserís/Peach's Castle
----------------------
As Kammy enters the castle and then the room Bowser is staying in, Kammy is
reporting to Bowser as he makes sure he is truly invincible. After Bowser
feels satisfied, the amazing Koopa Bros. come in! Unfortunately, Iíd call 
them Teenage Mutant Ninja Koopas, but Leonardo and Donatello have been 
replaced, so we'll just call them the Koopa Bros. After some chatting, she
(Kammy) tells the Bros. to show Bowser the amazing move they have. After
some amazing Wow's from Bowser, he asks who is guarding the captured Star
Spirit. Who I say? NO ONE. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
3) The Starry Mountain [012]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Toad Town Entrance==
Items: 
 Sleepy Sheep in chest on the Shelter
Badges: 
 Hammer Throw Badge on top of the Shelter in the chest
Star Pieces: 
 None (yet)
---------------------
Go to your right, and go down the several ledges, and when you get to the
bottom, head left to find a ? block which contains a Sleepy Sheep. After
you get that, head right towards the shelter and hit the nearby tree to get
a Spring. Jump on it onto the shelter and open the chest to your right to 
get a Hammer Throw Badge! After that, jump off the ledge and head to the 
right and enter the next area.

==Toad Town, main==

When you enter, a random Toad appears and begs for Mario to save Princess
Peach. What does he think we're doing, joining the circus? Well, welcome
to the terrific town, of Toad Town! This is where all our paths intertwine.
Firstly, Toad Town has a variety of attractions, so Iíll list them all now.


  Russ T. :   This helpful Toad located in the local library gives helpful 
              hints and secrets throughout the game. So if your missing 
              something, or just want some helpful and secretive, juicy
              information, ask Russ!
 
  Pipe    :   Here is where you can go back to Mario's home. In here, you 
              can talk to your brother for no apparent reason, or you can 
              check the board to see some records you've made and the 
              number of something you've collected.

  Dojo    :   At the Dojo, Mario battles certain people to obtain degrees, 
              but these degrees don't do much other than for people to 
              change what they say to you. The battlers in here are The 
              Master, Lee and Chan.

  Shop    :   Here you can buy a variety of items to help you in battle 
              ranging from Mushrooms and Syrups to Fright Jars and Fire 
              Flowers.

After some looking and buying (if you want) head to the next part of the
town, in other words, head right to the next area.

==Toad Town, east==
Star Pieces: 
 Hit tree near western exit 
---------------------
Firstly, hit the tree nearby for a Star Piece. In this part of the town,
once again there are a variety of shops and places you can go, so Iíll 
list them again.


  Flower Gate: This gate leads to another place for another chapter. 
               Located near the southern exit, this gate will warp Mario to
               a distant location where flowers lie and berries shine.
  
  Inn        : This is where Mario can replenish his energy free of cost. 
               Great for when you're low on HP and/or FP.

  Merlon     : This strange fortune teller doesn't let you in at the start 
               of the game, but once he does he helps Mario on his current
               quest. Say we could ask him now, he'd most likely mention 
               Shooting Star Summit.

  Badge Shop : This is where Mario can buy some cheap and some whacked out
               expensive badges. With the owner, Rowf, and his son, Rhuff,
               are just setting up at this point.
  

  Post Office: At the Post Office, Mario and his Partners can get some mail
               from characters throughout the game. Right now, Goombario 
               would've gotten a letter from the Goomba Bros. so go check 
               that out for a bit.

After some more sight-seeing, head north from the Eastern part of Toad Town
into the big blue door with a star on it. Head right from the broken down
castle, and head across the bridge in the next area. Once you see the upper
and lower paths, take the lower path and head into the next area.

==Merluvlee's House==
Badges: 
 15 with Merlow.
---------------------
Yes, you read right, 15 badges here, but they're pretty hard to get. But 
first, enter the house. Here, you see the amazing Merluvlee at the table, 
with her floating pyramid/crystal "ball". Merluvlee, the basic psychic,
gives Mario helpful hints on where Badges, Star Pieces and Super Blocks are.
(BTW: Super Blocks +1 Rank to partner of your choice) The psychic does have
to charge Mario for the hints, so her current fees are:

             Star Piece   -  5 Coins
             Badges       - 20 Coins
             Super Blocks - 30 Coins

Note Merluvlee cannot give readings to any Badge/Star Piece being owned or
carried by any enemy or person. After 1 reading, she does NOT give it again.

Notice the purple chest to your right? Well, this chest is a magical chest
that works as a "teleporter" for items and badges, so we'll use it later. 
Once you're done down here, head upstairs to meet Merlow.

==Merlow's Room==
Badges: 15
---------------------
Yes, in this SMALL room is where all the amazing badges are located. Unless
Merlow has 15 pockets, Iíve always wondered where he keeps them. Merlow does
have a very great variety of Badges, but instead of costing coins, they will
cost you some hefty amounts of Star Pieces.

Badge           BP    Star Pieces      Description  Of The Badge        
-----          ----   -----------   ---------------------------------

*Flower Saver    6       25         Saves 1 Flower point during attack 
Power Plus       6       25         +1 Attack for Mario's abilities

All up there are 160 Star Pieces to collect.

After/If you bought some things, exit the house and go back a area to the
path where it goes up. Head to the next area, via the ledges to your right.
And, where I put a small * in those badge names, it means that I highly do
recommend them for you to buy and equip as early as possible, plus, I really
do like my combination of Pay-off and Money Money, so soon enough if you 
bought them both, you will be overflowing with coins.

==Shooting Star Summit==

Head up the vast structure, all the way to the top, until you see a fuzzish
Eldstar floating at the top waiting for you. As the other 6 Spirits appear,
they talk about how Bowser's selfish wishes were ignored, and how he stole
the Star Rod for that very reason. After that, they talk about how Bowser is
holding them in different locations around Mushroom Kingdom, and when you 
save every last one of the, how they will give you the power to defeat him.
After they fade away, and Goombario says something, you will have a choice
to save, so do so.

**How Peach Met Twink [013]*************************************************

Peach, being locked up in her room, hear Bowser and Kammy storm their way 
through. After they make Peach feel more doomed than she already is, a weird
knocking sound, outside the window, grabs her attention. It turns out to be
a Star Kid, named Twink. Twink heard most of Peach's wishes, and said that 
she can ask for what she wants, and then Twink will grant it. Unfortunately,
because Twink is only new to this whole wishing thing, being a amateur, he
cannot grant Peach's wishes to save herself and Mario. Luckily, Peach thinks
of a wish that Twink CAN perform. Giving him a Lucky Star Necklace, Twink is
able to fly away and give the present to Mario back at Mushroom Kingdom...

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

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Before the next Chapter [014]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Shooting Star Summit==

Back at this place, head left onto the bridge, as Twink comes down to deliver
Peach's, oh so useful, present. Lucky Stars actually give Mario the power to
execute more damage during a attack, by following the directions located at
the bottom of the screen. Unfortunately, during Twinkís flight, he was chased
by a Magikoopa, which thinks by "eliminating" Mario, it can be favored by
Kammy Koopa.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Mini-Boss" Battle: Magikoopa
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
HP:  8
ATK: 3
DEF: 0

This battle, by the way, is impossible to lose at. Just by jumping on the 
annoying Magikoopa for 4 rounds will kill it. And if you use action commands
with Mario AND Goombario, 2 rounds, its over! Easy as pie...or cake.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
As the Magikoopa flies away, Twink will chat for a bit, and then fly away,
back to Princess Peach's side.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Firstly, head back to Toad Town, I think you'll know where that is by now.

==Toad Town, east==

Back here, a Toad will mention that Merlon wants you at his house, and how 
rare it is that he calls someone. Before entering his home, have a quick 
rest from the Magikoopa battle, and Save once you exit the Inn. Now, head to
Merlon's House, which is the house with the big blue spinning roof. When you
try to open the door, you hear someone say "Merlon is out". Really he isn't,
and he's actually just very annoyed of house guests. Try opening the door a
lot of times until he opens it and slams Mario to the ground. 

Once you actually get into Merlon's House, the first thing he does, is tell 
you a extremely long and boring story, which makes Mario fall asleep. Once
Merlon finishes, he states that the first act to save Peach is to head east,
into the Pleasant Path to get to the Koopa Bro. Fortress. Great, another 
really annoying fortress. Head outside, and talk to the Toads that block the
Pleasant Path entrance. Once you talk to them, head back to Merlon's house,
and talk to him. Once he hears about the Toads blocking the path, he heads
outside and uses his magical powers to reveal the true form of these very
oddly colored Toads. Once you find out they're actually the Koopa Bros.,
they run into the Pleasant Path. Merlon will then mention, to get into the
Koopa's Fortress, you must meet a, Blue Shelled, Koopa. Once he leaves, head
into the path yourself.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chapter One: Storming Koopa Bros. Fortress [015]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1) A Pleasant Day [016]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you left the Chapter Screen on for a while, you'll here the classic Mario
theme song.

==Pleasant Path==
Items: 
 Coin in the ? Block 
 Fright Jar in last ? Block
 POW Block in ? Block in second area
 Sleepy Sheep behind fence in second area
Badges: 
 Dizzy Attack in Red Block  
Star Pieces: 
 Across the water gap, need shell toss ability, second area
Enemies: 
 Koopa, Paragoomba, Spike Goomba, Goomba.
---------------------
Firstly, cross the bridge to the other side, and battle it out with the all
new Koopa enemy!

After defeating the annoying pest, head right and defeat the Paragoomba near
the floating blocks. Hit the ? Block for 1 coin. Head more to the right and
defeat the Spike Goomba, and hit the Red Block for a Dizzy Attack Badge, and
may I say, that badge is INCREDIBLY useful. Head more to the right, and hit
the Yellow Block for a Fright Jar, and head into the next area.

In this area, head right and hit the ? Block for a POW Block, and smash the
nearby tree with your hammer for a blue switch to come out. Hit the switch
with your hammer to form a bridge to cross the nearby river. Go across the
bridge, while defeating the Koopa. In this next part, if you want, hit the
brick block nearby to make a Spike Goomba fall out, for a little bit more 
Star Points. Then defeat another non-spiked Goomba nearby. Head right, then
up the ledges and get the sleepy sheep behind the fence. Ignore the path to
the south, for you need a Shell Toss ability, from your next partner. Defeat
the Koopa Troopa, and ignore every Brick Block until you get to the last one
and hit it as quick as you can for 1-10 coins, for its a coin block. Now, 
head into the next area.

==Pleasant Path, Fork==
Items: 
 Infinite Hearts at the leftmost Candy Cane
Badges: 
 Attack FX B Badge in the Brick Blocks, Left Right Centre (Order)
Star Pieces: 
 On the small island at the riverbed, not accessible yet
Enemies: 
 None for now
---------------------
When you enter, you'll notice the sign, saying there's a path to a Village,
and a path to the Koopa Bros. Fortress. Before we take any route, lets head
north, to the Magical Candy Cane! Where all hearts are refilled! At this 
very weird area, the leftmost Candy Cane, can actually give Mario infinite 
Heart Pieces, by running around it in circles. Anyway, head down the south
fork and head right through the curved path, and you come across three very
peculiar looking brick blocks. Smash the left one, then the right one, then
the CENTRE one, and look, a Red Block! Hit it to reveal a Attack FX B Badge,
which will change how Mario's attack sounds at landing. Now, head right into
Koopa Village.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2) A Fuzzy Problem [017]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Koopa Village==
Items: 
 Blue Shell with the Fuzzy in the green-roofed house
 Coins (2) In Bushes
 Coins (2) From bouncing Fuzzies
 Coin (2) from bouncing Fuzzies in second area (one in right tree)
 Dried Shroom in bottom bush
 Koopa Leaf in bush to the right
 Koopa Leaf in bush to the left in second area
Badges: 
 HP Plus Badge in Blue-Shelled Koopa's backyard
Star Pieces: 
 Hidden Floor Panel in grassy area
Enemies: 
 Fuzzy
---------------------
When you enter the town, you notice that its being overtaken by Fuzzies! The
little annoying creatures have stolen a Koopa's Shell, or they're just 
bouncing around really annoyingly. If you want to hit every Fuzzy for a big
coin, or just for some pride, here are their locations.

First Area: 
             One Fuzzy bouncing clockwise
             One Fuzzy bouncing counter-clockwise
Second Area:
             One Fuzzy hiding in the rightmost tree
             One Fuzzy hidden behind a shell bouncing in the dirt patch
                   and please note, to hit that Fuzzy, slightly tilt 
                   the analogue stick so it doesn't get away
             One Fuzzy bouncing counter-clockwise

And just for you to realize, hitting these Fuzzies will not give you any
reward whatsoever. Maybe about 4 coins, but that's it.

Once you've finished hammering all these Fuzzies until they run away, head
into the second area again, and go into the green-roofed house (the one that
is somehow shaking.) Once you try opening the door, a Koopa with no shell 
will come out, and tell you that a Fuzzy has stolen his shell, and that it 
is inside. Once you go in to try and grab it, the Koopa forgot to mention,
that there's a backdoor. Once the Fuzzy escapes, follow it into the back.

Once in the back, keep heading right and follow the Fuzzy until its fellow
beings come out to play.         

Keep heading right and defeat every Fuzzy you come across, and ignore the 
nearby HP Plus badge on the logs. Keep heading right, defeating all the  
Fuzzies you come across, until you can head into the next area. 

When you arrive, the Fuzzy will jump into the trees with the blue shell, and
will make you play a mini-game that involves a good eye. The Fuzzy and its 
friends will start jumping in the tree branches, and you have to hammer the
tree the Fuzzy with the blue shell is in. There's three levels of difficulty 
and if you get it wrong, you either get a heart, of a nice Fuzzy battle! As
you correctly (I hope) guess each of the 3 Fuzzy locations correctly, one of
the Fuzzies will give Mario the shell back. When you try to exit this place,
Kooper will come out and ask for his shell back, talk about a Professor, and
then he will ask you if he can join your team. Due to the storyline of this
game, you have to say yes, for saying no is not an option. See a description
of Kooper in Section A.

If you try heading to the left, to exit this area, you have to defeat the
Fuzzy that stole Kooper's shell, plus 3 friends. So defeat them like normal
with your newly made friend, or use 1 Fire Flower. After the battle exit the
area.

When heading back to Koopa Village, obtain the HP Plus Badge on the logs, by
standing on the highest log to the right, and using Kooper's ability to get
it with his shell. After that, head all the way left to Koopa Village.

==Koopa Village==
Star Piece: 
 On the Brick Block southeast of Kooper's House
---------------------
Get the nearby Star Piece, southeast of where you just came out of, and go
to the western parts of Koopa Village.

Stock up on some POW Blocks, and sell/store some items for future use, and 
heal at the Inn, save at the Save Block, and head out of the town.

==Pleasant Path, Fork==
Items: 
 Honey Syrup being rightmost Candy Cane
Star Pieces: 
 Star Piece on small island on the river in area before.
---------------------
Head left, and make your way up the ledges again. Head to the left area for
a Star Piece. In this area, head left, and stay on the lower parts of the 
screen. Until you reach some ledges going down, head across the path after
climbing down those ledges, to see a distant Star Piece. Use Kooper's shell
toss and retrieve it, and head back to the fork. At this area again, go to
the Candy Cane garden to the north, and head to the rightmost cane. Head
behind it to find Honey Syrup. Now, head across the bridge to the right into
the next area.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
3) The Fortress of Ninjas [018]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Path to Koopa Bro. Fortress==
Items: 
 Coins (5) In plain sight at the right entry
 Thunder Bolt on the Brick Block
 Fire Flower in invisible ? Block
Star Pieces: 
 In the first tree, second area
 Hidden floor panel with Star Piece
Enemies: 
 Koopa, Paratroopa, Spike Goomba
---------------------
When you enter, you'd notice the 5 coins straight away and dive for them. 
BUT, this is a decoy for a Koopa to attack you, so use Kooper's ability to
retrieve them one by one, until you have them all. If you'd like to battle
the Koopa for Star Points, go ahead. Head northeast before you head down
the ledges, and can you see the Thunder Bolt item? Use Kooper to smash the
Brick Block, and head down the ledges, while defeating the Spike Goomba, to
retrieve it. Head to the right of the sign, and stand at the edge of the 
stream. Get Kooper to hit the switch on the other side, to form a bridge. Go
across the bridge, and meet the new Paratroopa enemy.

After that, head north towards the brick blocks, and stand in-between them,
then jump. You will see that there was a invisible ? Block containing a Fire
Flower. After getting that, head to the next area.

In this area, defeat the Koopa that's waiting for you, and hit the nearby 
tree it was at for a Star Piece. Head right and defeat the Paratroopa, and
head right, ignoring the warp pipe to the nearby Heal Block. Hit it and go
into the next area. 

==Koopa Bro. Fortress==
Items: 
 Fortress Key 1 With Koopa in first room
 Fortress Key 2 Hallway with spinning fires
 Fortress Key 3 In jail cell, leftmost cell.
 Fortress Key 4 Lowered staircase, break wall with Bombette
 Maple Syrup in ? Block at Bullet Bill area.
Badges: 
 Power Bounce Badge in Cell
 Smash Charge Badge with the Bob-omb guarding it on the circle path.
 Refund Badge outside after bombing the wall at the Spiral path
Enemies: 
 Koopa, Paratroopa, Bob-omb, Bullet Bill, Bill Blaster 
 Boss: Bowser??? and the Koopa Bros.
---------------------
Head up and save, and then head southeast to the path that leads to the 
door of the Fortress. The Black Koopa Bro. will come out, and report that 
Mario has arrived, unexpectedly. Then head into the fortress. 

Fortress Key 1
---------------
Head around the U-shaped path, and defeat the Koopa for a Key to unlock the 
door to the next room. (That was short, wasn't it)

Fortress Key 2
---------------
In this room, you will meet the next in this game,  the Bob-omb

-------------
Bob-omb <--1 attack sets off their Charge mechanism. Using Kooper's
HP: 3      shell will finish it off with no damage to Kooper.
ATK:1/2
DEF:0
-------------

Head right and defeat another Bob-omb and head into the next room. In here,
you will see the Green Koopa Bro. locking the next key into a cell, and runs
away after spotting Mario in the room. Defeat the Koopa here, and head right
to where the Koopa in the cell is, once it comes out, defeat it. Then, this
is a glitch in the game. Go to the right of the cell and head to the back. If
you can see it, threes a thick black line on the cell. Try to jump into it,
and you'll automatically be in the cell to collect the Power Bounce Badge!
Head out the same way. Defeat the Koopa to the right, then head into the 
next room, but please make sure you have the Power Bounce badge equipped, so
that you can kill Koopa's faster by repeatedly doing an action command.

In here, head towards the Koopa to the right and defeat it, so that a switch
will pop down to the left of the vast staircase. Hit the switch to lower the
staircase, so that you can go down. Once downstairs, head left into the next
part of this floor. 

In this room, the doors will suddenly rise, so that you cannot escape. In 
here, you will have to defeat 2 Paratroopas and a Koopa to get out, so beat
them at will. Once you won, head to the newly lowered left hallway. In here,
head right while trying to dodge all the spinning fires, and if you want some
serious amounts of coins, keep jumping over the fire until it dies, like 
skipping. Once you kill the two spinning fires, head left and collect the 
Fortress Key. 

Fortress Key 3
---------------
When you leave here, you can come back to defeat the fire again for more 
coins, so keep that in mind, but no coins. Once you go two screens to the 
right, use your new found key on the door upstairs.

Once you enter, you see the Yellow Koopa Bro. hammering at the top of the
spiral "staircase". Wonder what he's up to. Go south of the spiral and into
the door at the bottom of the screen. Outside again, save and enter, and go
to the very top where the Koopa was hammering, and hit the ? Block dud. As
Mario cartoonishly falls down (again) into a cell full of Bob-ombs, the 
Yellow Koopa claims victory and heads out of the screen again. When in the
cell, the Bob-ombs turn out to be friendly Bob-ombs, that are unfortunately 
stuck in this cell. Go to the nearby Heal Block and recover, and talk to 
Bombette again until she wants to join your team as your 3rd befriended 
partner. Check out her description in Section A.

After getting Bombette, she tells you to hit the nearby cracked wall so they
can all escape. Do so with her Explosion and head out of the cell. Halfway 
towards the door, two Bob-ombs and a Koopa storm in and remind all Bob-ombs
not to explode incase of emergency. Maybe that's why they didn't get out so
quickly. Anyway, as they challenge you in battle, defeat them like normal, 
and head out towards the door, while collecting all the coins they dropped.

Head up the stairs and into the left door, and use Bombetteís explosion on 
the jail cell right behind you once you enter. Once you 'open' it, get the 
next Key.

(Final) Fortress Key 4
-----------------------
Head two screens to the right, from where you got Key 3 from. Back at this 
spiral, save and head right from the door you came out from the block, and
bomb the wall to get a Refund Badge in the chest, and head back to the
spiral room. Walk to the top this time, and head into the door to the left.
In here, don't lean on the fencing, there is a gap. Head right on the path
and defeat the Paratroopa in your way. Open the door with your recently 
obtained Key, and head into the next room.

Head down the stairs, and use Kooperís ability INFRONT of the cement block,
that looks nothing like the wall. Hit the switch, and head across the 
rectangular block that comes out. Head across the other block, opposite the
one you just went across, and get off of it and stand on the cell. Hit the 
switch again so you can continue. Repeat this until you get to the door at
the other end. 

Once you enter the door, head South and then right, defeat the Koopa, and 
hit the Blue Switch to lower the staircase, then head down it from the other
end. Use Bombette's explosion to open the cracked wall, and get the Fortress
Key. Head back up the stairs into the cracked wall, and then head up the 
lowered staircase, and open the locked door. Head down then right, and hit
the switch to lower yet another staircase, but this one disrupts 2 sleeping
Koopa's which you must defeat. Head up the stairs, around the circle path,
past the door, and to another Badge. Defeat the Bob-omb guarding it, and get
the Smash Charge Badge. Then head out the door you passed half a circle ago.

In here, the Koopa Bros. will all come out from the door all the way to the
right, and start Shooting Bullet Bills at you, which, by the way, are an 
enemy. Quickly head right and then onto the path south of you, before the
Bullet Bills come, and use Bombette's explosion to destroy the rock in your
way of the ? Block. Hit the block to obtain a Maple Syrup, your first item
which does not have the word 'key' in it from this fortress! Now, head right
and then up the path to where the Bullet Bills are being shot. Try to jump
on them with very good timing, so they don't get a first strike. Only 
because Bullet Bills have a annoying feature which hits Mario and then die.

After fighting your way through all the Bullet Bills, or dodging, when you
get close to the Koopa's head south just before the Cannons to a Save Block
and a Heal Block. Heal and save, then, if you want to level up like me, try
to battle as many Bullet Bills as possible, because Iíve always found this
fight against the Bros. very hard. Do this by beating Bullet Bills near the
Heal Block at the end, every time your down to about 5 HP heal. 
(I got up to level 5 by doing this) 

After that, head over towards the Cannons, or so called, 'Bullet Blaster'
Please be warned, Bill Blasters are very annoying at this point in game,  
just say thank you because they're not the upgraded version. After your very
annoying battle with the Blasters, heal and save again. Now, enter the door
to where the evil 'Ninja' [:)] Koopa's are. Oh, and please have Bombette at
your side, because her Bomb attack is extremely useful in the upcoming 
battle.

When you enter, the Black Koopa notices you, and heads off screen. You hear 
them shoving and complaining, until they finally reveal themselves as...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle: Bowser??? (Mecha Bowser)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

HP:  10                                          
ATK: Arm Smash-1                                                   
DEF: 1                                                   

This battle is pretty easy, for if you do get to execute defensive action 
commands, the so called 'Bowser' will not do any damage on you. Just hit him
with 10 action commanded Hammers, and he's done for. Or for the easier way, 
just get Bombette, and do 2 Bomb attacks, and get Mario to do 2 Hammers, 
and it will be over in 3 turns flat.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
After defeating the very robotic Bowser, the Koopa Bros. will fall out and
admit it was them, but...
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Another battle...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle: R/Y/B/G Koopa Bros.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Koopa Bros. Stacked
HP: 0
ATK:Tornado Toss: 1-amount of Koopas (3=3 4=4 etc) 
DEF:0

R/Y/G/B Ninja Koopas
HP: 5
ATK:1 <-- Only when once Koopa is left you get hit with this damage.
DEF:1

When you enter battle, the Koopa Bros. unfortunately get the first attack,
which I call a Tornado Toss. Basically, the Koopa's are piled one onto of 
the other, and start spinning, then dash towards Mario to do a 1/4 power
attack. This is very hard to block with an action command, so have some very
good timing as they hit you. Swap out Bombette (if you have her) for your
partner, Goombario. 

If you still have this, which I oh so dearly hope you do, hit them with a 
Thunder Bolt that you got earlier in the game. If you have used it, switch 
to Bombette and hit them with her Bomb attack. Either way, somehow you will 
have to Tattle, if you want to. When the Bros. are defenseless on the ground,
use Kooperís Power Shell to hit them all, and Mario's Power Jump to finish 
off their remaining HP. If they get up, use your POW blocks, to get them 
down again. Keep doing this to beat them for good. Also, if you run out of 
FP, use your Maple Syrup from the previous ? Block.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
After that battle, if you won, the Koopas are knocked off the floor, and end
up in the Jail Cell where they imprisoned the Bob-ombs, where the hole Mario
and Bombette made has been fixed...
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you won, a orb of light will appear from under, and turn into the playing
card? This is where Bowser and Kammy Koopa imprisoned the Star Spirits, and
this is how we release them. Basically, touch it, and the Star Spirit is
free! 

One chapter down, 6 to go! Watch the summary of this chapter, and Save once
the screen pops up for it.

**Diaries and Secrets [019]*************************************************

Once again we viewing what Peach is up to at her castle in the skies. Twink
and Peach are talking about what Mario may be doing now, and Twink lights
a spark in Peach's memory, about a secret passage out of here. This is when
we finally can control Peach. You can do multiple things in her room, but 
for this part, examine the small picture to the right of the fireplace. Once
Peach reveals the secret button, concealed behind the drawing, the fireplace
will reveal a secret hallway by going through the back of it! When in the 
end of the hallway, press the button and Peach will end up in Bowserís room.
Head to the left, and read his Diary *giggle*. Keep reading about Bowserís
feelings towards Peach, and how the next Star Spirit is located at the Dry
Dry Ruins in the Dry Dry Desert. Strangely enough, this is actually a place.
After you finish reading, Bowser barges in and orders the guards to take
Princess Peach back to her room, not noticing Twink nearby...

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

==Koopa Bros. Fortress==

Back here again, the Star Spirit, Eldstar, will then grant Mario the power 
to perform a Star Power. Let Eldstar go through what this means, and for 
your first 2 powers, you shall receive the Power Refresh, which lets Mario
recover both HP and FP by 5, for the price of 1 Star Meter. As Eldstar flies
away, or floats, head to the left, then go north. Save, and head to the left
again into the previous area.

==Path to Koopa Bros. Fortress==
Badges: 
 FP Plus Badge, via warp pipe in the chest.
---------------------
Back here, recover if you must, and head left. Get Bombette out, and use her
ability on the nearby cracked wall. Head into the warp pipe at the other 
side, and jump off at the exit. Head right to the next area, and open the 
chest to obtain a FP Plus Badge. Head back to the warp pipe, and head south
of it to jump of a ledge. Now, basically you must continue to the left until
you enter the Pleasant Path Fork again. Head to the left, for if you want to
do some Koopa Koot favors, we will do them soon. Keep heading left in the
Pleasant Path, until you meet up with an old 'friend' the Jr. Troopa. When
he enters the screen, he slips into the water and comes out to talk to Mario
and your partner. Keep talking until he challenges you...again.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mini-Boss Battle: Jr. Troopa - Second Encounter
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

HP: 15
ATK: 2
DEF: 1

With his new set of eyes, the rascal realizes he can use his shell as a weak
shield! With 5 more HP than last time, he doesn't make me tremble. This is
a easy battle, just use Bombette's Bomb while you unleash some Power Jumps.
If you don't have Power Jump equipped, don't worry, just Hammer him to his
demise. 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Once you win this battle, Jr. Troopa seems to be somewhat dead on the floor.
After passing his 'corpse', head into Toad Town.

==Toad Town, east==

When you enter, you hear some familiar music and someone call out Mario! It
appears to be Twink again, and he tells Mario of the next Star Spirit being
located at the Dry Dry Ruins in the Dry Dry Desert. Once Twink flies away,
save, and head to the south of this area. About 1 second away from the next
area, Rowf, the son of the shop owner who sells badges, Ruff, tells Mario 
that their store has finally opened! The first badges, for at least, were
the First Attack, D-Down Pound (Which is similar to the Piercing Blow in 
Paper Mario Thousand Year Door) and the Speedy Spin. At this point I say buy
the D-Down Pound, because soon enough we will be meeting enemies with lots
of defense.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Before the next chapter [020]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*=Must Do

Koopa Koot Favors
--------------------
These being the most important of things to do, the Koopa Koot back in 
Koopa Village always has some things for Mario, but he needs something in 
return. Located at the rightmost house in the second area of Koopa Village, 
this Koopa will always ask Mario for a favor. Check out Section B for a
list of his favors and when they unlock. Koot's favors also give Mario some
rewards, such as Star Pieces, Coins, or even some membership cards to the
Playroom...


*Toad Town Tunnels
--------------------
The Toad Town Tunnels, located in the southeastern area in the warp pipe,
has some great things for Mario to collect. Read the Toad Town Tunnels guide
in Section B for the things you should do now. In these tunnels lie a very
useful item, and a pipe that takes you to a place when the hot weather is 
under 0 degrees. The two new enemies you will meet are the Gloomba and Spike
Gloomba, so see those descriptions in Section B's enemy list.

Chuck Quizmo
--------------------
He is hard to find, but he usually pops up in most towns you visit. If you
do the Koopa Koot's favors, you'll get a lot of Star Pieces from him. When you
talk to Chuck, he asks you a question. If answered right, he gives you a 
Star Piece. If answered wrong, then he disappears until you find him again.

The Dojo
--------------------
Located in Toad Town, the dojo is really a fighting area, optional.

Now, before we head onto our next chapter, time to explore some of Toad Town
and its wonders. If you want to go now, skip to the Train Station section,
but, read the southeast area for the pink seed, it is essential you obtain
that.

==Toad Town, southeast==
Items: 
 Pink Seed; with the Bub-ulb. 
---------------------
In this part of the Town, there are many wonders, so many I will not list 
them. Firstly, do NOT head east from here into the Woods, for you are not
ready for this chapter quite yet. This area seems pointless now. So before
we head left, go south to the grassy area to the right, and talk to the 
flower in the ground. Once it pops out, it turns out to be a Bub-ulb, a
flower-person from Flower Fields. Keep talking until you get a Pink Seed, 
and then head left to the next area. 

Note: The house on the curb belongs to the great Tayce T. who is a cook.
      sheís pointless for now, but if you did some Koopa Koot favors, 
      one of them do involve her.

==Toad Town, south==

In here, the first thing you will notice is a platypus looking fellow to the
north. His name his Chet Rippo, and he will change your HP, FP, and BP 
amounts. Note, his sales sound great, but he lowers the other two for a 
sad price. I never used him, and I advise you, don't use him either. Next
to Chet Rippo, is a way more sophisticated shop, Harry's Shop. They sell
some great items like Thunder Rages and Stone Caps. He also sells the better
version of a Mushroom, the Super Shroom. So stock up if you must. In the 
house to the left near the next area, is a mystery for now. And if you enter
it has some great backround music. Reminds me of my childhood...*wink*
Anyway, after that area, head again to the left for another newly discovered
area.

==Toad Town Port==
Items: 
 Hidden Coin Block, on the boxes.
---------------------
The sound in this area sound like light flowing water, because it is. This
is Toad Town Port, home to Club 49, and fish! Threes not much in this area
but an Coin Block with a shadow. Walk to the far left, and then head south.  
You should see some boxes, and a shadow on the highest one. So, to get there
head to the left of all the boxes, and go south. Head right into a gap, and
south onto the small box. Use it as a platform to the box it's touching to
the north. When on the box, jump to your right, and then jump on the box
with the shadow. Hit the Coin Block for 1-10 coins. Now head right two 
screens, and then head south into yet another area.

==Toad Town Train Station==

This is quite embarrassing, but after clocking this game 4 times, I never 
found the Play Room. Only until now I realized where it was, after so much
searching. When you enter the area, head left, and jump onto the grassy 
path, and head left and hit the tree to reveal a warp pipe. Enter the warp
pipe to...

==The Play Room==

YES! FINALLY! After all these months! Anyway, in here, you can play a 
variety of games, but for now you can't play any. Head out again to the last
area, the Train Station.

==Toad Town Train Station==
After that, head right onto the path, and then right again to the Little Pig
Generator, or so called Li'l Oink Farm. In here, you can make more than 10
pigs as pets, and breed them and play with them. But after the 11th...you
receive a great prize! If you have enough, you can have a head start and 
make 10 Li'l Oinkies, but if you don't then just leave it. Each Oinky will
give you a different prize, so here they are.

Color           Item
-------          --------
Gold Flasher     Ultra Shroom     <-- Highly unlikely
Silver Flasher   Jamming' Jelly            |
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -           |
Question Mark    Repel Gel        <-- Unlikely
Mushroom         Life Shroom              |
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -           |
Starry           Shooting Star    <-- Probably  
Tiger            Thunder Rage             |
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -           |
Flower           Maple Syrup      <-- Most Definitely
Pinkish          Fire Flower
Black            Dried Shroom 

But, if you got any of the 3 in the last group, then stop buying until you
save up loads of coins. And the higher the group, the harder the pig.

If you head south from there, you will see a Train Station. Unfortunately, a
boulder is blocking the trains path, so use Bombette's Explosion to dispose
of it. Talk to the conductor, and off you go to Dry Dry Desert!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chapter Two: The Mystery Of Dry Dry Ruins [021]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1. Rugged and Ready [022]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Mount Rugged Train Station==
Items: 
 Coins (3) in bushes southwest of the train
 Egg in up most bush where the 3 coins where
---------------------
Oh, this isnít Dry Dry Desert! This is Mount Rugged! And apparently, there's
a place called Dry Dry Outpost. So our mission? Scale Mt. Rugged, go to
Dry Dry Desert to Dry Dry Outpost to Dry Dry Ruins! Simple...now, save at 
the Save Block, and get some coins and an egg at the bushes southwest of
where you are standing. Then head north, and follow all the red arrows until
you come to the top of the mountain...NOT! Heal at the Heal Block and then 
head right until you meet Parakarry! He was the one at the Post Office, 
remember? Once you talk to him, he says that he has lost 3 letters around 
Mt. Rugged and needs help getting them back. So head right, and then lets
start to climb Mt. Rugged!

==Mount Rugged==
Items: 
 First letter, in second area, use Kooper's ability to retrieve
 Second letter, in second area, above area, after riding slide to left
 Third letter, under broken bridge, to the right of the Cleft
 Violet Seed with Bub-ulb where you first meet the Clefts
 Coins, down the big "slide"
 Coin in the ? Block
 Sleepy Sheep in ? Block first area
 8 Whacka's Bumps with Whacka
 ? Block has a Mushroom in the above sections after the flinger slide
 Honey Syrup in ? Block next to the Cleft on the highest area
Badges: 
 Damage Dodge Badge in the chest, above areas after flinger slide
 Quake Hammer, use Parakarry's ability in second area
Star Pieces: 
 Third area, slowly head south of the two holes
 Upper Areas near red spring, use Parakarry's ability
Enemies: 
 Monty Mole, Cleft
---------------------
Wow, that's HEAPS of items.
Head right, and go onto where the arrow is pointing and press A, and then 
Mario will slide down this "slide" and get some coins, wonderful! Head right
again, but walk beyond the slide. Here there are Monty Moles, hidden under
the dirt, so be careful, they do throw rocks and they are a new enemy.

Once that's defeated, head right and down the stairs, and right again toward
the ? Block. A Monty Mole is hidden in the wall to the left of it, so be 
careful. Hit the block for a Sleepy Sheep, and then head left and hit the 
Yellow Block and head more to the left to meet Whacka! Every time you hit
him with your hammer, you get 1 Whacka's Bump, which restores 25 FP and HP.
I advise you not to hit him yet, because we only need a bump for some of
Tayce T.'s cooking skills. Leave him alone, and only get one bump at this 
point, he only has 8, then head back up the stairs. Head north then right to
the next area.

Here at the next area, save at the Save Block, then head right into the big
dirt patch. There are three Monty Moles here, so defeat them. Head right 
and defeat the Monty Mole that comes out of the wall, and then head right
again and jump on the ledges. Then, head left to the edge of the floor you
are on, and use Kooper's ability to retrieve the first letter. Then head 
right again to the next area.

When you walk in here, make sure you have a D-Down Pound equipped, because
we are about to meet a very annoying enemy called a Cleft. Before they see
you, my strategy is to use Bombette's explosion to hit them for some extra
before damage.

They may not look like much, but that defense is annoying. Defeat that Cleft
then head up more ledges and defeat another nearby Cleft. Follow the red 
arrows again up the mountain to the highest part. Head left and defeat the
Cleft, and then you come to a shelter with two holes where you can see Mario
and his partner. On that second hole, head south ever so slowly until you 
fall, landing on some wood leading to a Star Piece. Head back up to the two
holes again and head left to the previous area. Head left and go down the
slide, but it will fling you to the other side where a Cleft is practically
breathing your air. Defeat it if you must. And head into the next area.

Defeat the Cleft down the stairs to your left, and get the Mushroom in the
? Block above where the Cleft was. Head right and defeat all the Monty Moles
that come out of the ground, and then head into the path to the north where 
it looks like two eyes. In the left hole, head left and you'll come across
a secret passage leading to a Damage Dodge Badge. Get that and head back, 
and go down the stairs ignoring the Red Spring. Get the two coins and defeat
the Cleft, and then head back up and jump on the spring. Ignore the Star 
Piece surrounded by Coins for we cannot get it for now. Once up, head left
and hit the ? block for 1 measly coin, and head right and ignore the slide
and head above it. Defeat the Cleft and head towards the ? Block and hammer
it for a Honey Syrup. Go onto the slide, to an upper area with the second
letter.

Head down the ledge that has no rocks blocking it, and head right back to 
the 3rd area. Head two more screens/areas to the right, and you'll end up
at a place with a broken bridge. 

==Buzzar's Nest==

Fall down and defeat the Cleft and head right to retrieve the last letter. 
Head left and go on the spring to the upper area again, and head all the 
way back to where Parakarry was.

==Mount Rugged Train Station==

Talk to Parakarry, and give him all three letters. Once he repays you by
joining your team, heal at the Heal Block, and head to Mount Rugged again.
NOTE: Check out Parakarry's attacks and things he can do in Section A.

==Mount Rugged==

Head two screens to the right, and go to the right until you have to jump
on some ledges. Remember where the first letter was? Well, Parakarry's 
ability lets you fly over small gaps, so fly over to where the letter was.
Fly over another gap, and get the Quake Hammer. Go to the next two area's,
and head left after climbing the ledges. Go to where the secret passage was,
as the red spring, and one there, use Parakarry's ability again to cross the
small gap to where the Star Piece and Coins are. Head right two area's and
where you met the Clefts, go up the ledges and head left but don't follow 
the red arrow. Use Parakarry's ability once again to reach the other side,
and talk to another Bub-ulb for a violet seed. Head to the area where the 
broken bridge was after that. 

==Buzzar's Nest==
Enemies:
 Optional Boss: Buzzar
---------------------
You're probably wondering who Buzzar is by now, so lets meet the mystery
person. Use Parakarry's ability across the gap where the broken bridge is, 
and cross a mended bridge until a giant bird swoops down asking who you are.
Luckily, the bird forgot its glasses, so if you feel quite weak right now,]
say you're Luigi and Buzzar will let you pass. Yes, that's Buzzar. If you
say you are Mario/Peach Buzzar will challenge you. So this is really an
optional boss. I for one challenged it, so Iíll write how to beat it right
now.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Optional Boss: Buzzar

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
HP: 40
ATK: Wind Whoosh    - 1/2/3
     Claw Grab     - 4
     Foot Tackle   - 3
     Feather Spears- 2
DEF: 0

That's a heaping of HP, but if you're strong enough you will do just fine.
Power Jump it, make it sleepy with your Sleepy Sheeps, if you have any, and
use Parakarry's attacks against it. It's Wind Whoosh attack does a certain 
amount of damage depending on how many times you press A. Parakarryís 
Shell Shot does greatly, and Mario can just keep Refreshing. His Claw Grab
also does some damage, and a hard one to get out of too, otherwise, you'll
do splendidly. Foot Tackle is easy to block, and feather spears too.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
After defeating him, he flies down into the backround, never to be seen.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Walk to the right, and keep following the arrows until you reach the next 
area with the Save and Heal block. After all that, you deserve a bit of a
rest, so breath for 10 seconds, and go to the next area.

10 seconds doesn't seem enough...as you can see, this place is ridiculously 
huge, with a total of 49 hexagonal area's. I certainly are not making a full
guide for this place, but I will list the things you must get, including the
lemon in the Oasis. And please upgrade Kooper, we need his new ability for 
later.

 SC, Stone Cactus: Column 4, 4 down.
 Spin Jump (when you get your boots) for a Star Piece.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

That's all the things you should get, exploring this area may get you some 
more coins, and a few items, but that's all. You also meet two new enemies 
here, the Bandit and the Pokey Tower. I call it a Pokey Tower, because that's
its proper name, but they only use Pokey.

Oh yes, and if you are going to explore the vast desert, beware of the Pokey
areas, for they can have about 5 to 15 Pokies in them! (especially column 6,
1 down) *shudder*.

After exploring this desert (if you did), go to the section in the map that
has the letters DO, which means, Dry Dry Outpost.

==Dry Dry Outpost==

In here, Save at the nearby Save Block, and head to the right. The villagers
here are all pretty strange. One sings about someone named Moustafa, and one
talks about some things about Dry Dry Desert we already know about. When you
arrive at a certain point while going towards the right, a purple mouse will
come out of the shop, and run away. Follow the mouse into the next area of
this crazy town.

Head all the way to the other side of this area, until you see the purple
mouse run away back to the last area. Before you do anything else here, head 
right and stop before you come inline with the Toad Inn. Head north where
the sign is of the Toad into the arch, and jump on the boxes and jump off 
the other side to arrive at a secret location where another fortune teller 
lays. This one is called Merlee, and she will give Mario a touch of luck.
Merlee will give Mario a special gift, so when Mario is in battle, she will
come at random times and raise Mario's attack/defense, give him more Star
Points when you win (good for boss battles) OR get you more coins after 
battle. (Thatís a great combination with the Money Money and Refund badges.)
Her crash courses vary from:
 
 Special Course - 50 Coins
 Ordinary Course- 20 Coins
 Petit Course    - 5 Coins

Each course varies from the amount of times Merlee pops up to help Mario, 
with the Special Course having a max of 10 times. 

After talking to Merlee, head back to where the purple mouse was in this 
area, and talk to the shady looking green mouse in front of the blue house. 
He says that someone who gives things is nice, and nice guys get told nice
stuff. In other words, he wants a lemon. If you don't have a lemon, get it
from the Oasis where the Super Block was in Dry Dry Desert. If you give him
some items other than a lemon, he wont tell you how to meet Moustafa, but he
will tell you everything else. So giving him a Lemon to make him tell you 
something extra. Pick how to see Moustafa, and he says to buy a Dried Shroom
and a Dusty Hammer in that order to see him. Go to the shop in the first 
area and buy those things IN ORDER, and he will tell you that he is at the
highest part of this town.

If you already knew where he was beforehand, you can't get there, so buy the
items to make that shady green mouse go away. Back at where that mouse was,
the door seems slightly ajar, so enter it. Go right and you'll end up 
in front of some boxes. Climb the boxes, and keep heading left until you come
across a letter behind a yellow pot. Get the letter, and continue heading
left, jump across a small gap, and enter the green house. 

Inside the house, the shady looking green mouse turns out to be Moustafa!
Moustafa will talk about how Mario wants to see Dry Dry Ruins, and gives you
a Pulse Stone. Head out to the desert again, and look on the map above to
find Dry Dry Ruins.

On your way to the ruins, you'll know that you're getting closer as the 
Pulse Stone starts to respond. Avoid column 6, 1 down, for its Pokey Tower
madness there. As soon as you arrive at the destination, there will be a 
rock with a oddly shaped top in the centre of this area. Put the Stone in
the rock, and watch as the fabled Dry Dry Ruins rises out from the sands!
Darkness falls across the lands, shudders from the earth vibrate the floors,
and the Dry Dry Ruins...has been opened.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
3) Quest of the Mummy [024]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yes you heard me, a Mummy! 2 kinds to be exact. Heal at the Heal Block, and
enter the ruins.

==Dry Dry Ruins==
Items: 
 Ruins Key 1, after getting Spike Shield take lower staircase
 Ruins Key 2, 1 floor under where the Buzzy Beetle was, to the right
 Ruins Key 3, where you hit the ? Block and battled 3 Pokies
 Ruins Key 4, right of the Buzzy Beetle long hallway, jump on switch
 Super Block after falling down, left of the long hallway with Beetles
 Super Hammer in chest, in the puzzle room
 Artifact after smashing Grey Block, two rooms before the puzzle room
 Diamond Stone, bottom leftmost room, left of the Super Block
 Pyramid Stone, two rooms right of where you found the artifact
 Lunar Stone, two rooms right of where the Stone Chomp statues are
Badges: 
 Spike Shield Badge in second coffin where the Pokey Mummies were
 Slow Go Badge in passage where the Super Hammer is
Star Pieces: 
 After draining the second amount of sand, Star Piece is shown.
Enemies: 
 Pokey Mummy, Buzzy Beetle, Swooper, Stone Chomp
 Boss: Tutankoopa & Chain Chomps
---------------------

Ruins Key 1
------------

The second you enter this place the music will hurt your ears as a mystery
voice calls out threats to Mario. Apparently, it's a Tutankoopa, an everyday
talking *gulp* Mummy. Save at the Save Block, and head into the next area.

In here, the weird pointy coffins with the faces will open up, reveal some
new species of Pokey Towers, the Pokey Mummy.


I hope you upgraded Kooper by 1 rank, because he has a attack called Dizzy
Shell which really comes in useful after having 5 poisonous Pokey Mummies 
attack you. Plus his attacks are the only kind that can't be hurt by the 
spikes of the Pokies. Defeat this new creature, and head to the next coffin
and defeat another Mummy, and retrieve the Spike Shield Badge inside the
coffin. This badge is very useful in these ruins, so please, equip it. The
next coffin has another Mummy, so defeat that too with your new spike-proof
jumping. 

When you come to two staircases, take the lower one into another area. Get 
the unguarded Ruin key, and head back an area, then go upstairs and use that
key to open the locked door.

Ruins Key 2
------------

Enter the new room, and jump onto the pink square button to your left to 
make all the sand go down to the room beneath Mario. Head down the stairs
again to where you found Ruin Key 1, and enter the reachable door, because
of the sand. When you enter the next room, Tutankoopa will start scaring
Mario again. Head up the stairs, and battle the new enemy.

Multibounce really works well against a gang of these things. Defeat it, and
use Parakarry's ability to take you across the gap to your right, then use
Bombette's explosion to crack the wall so you can enter. Hit another pink 
switch to make some sand go to the room under you. Collect the Star Piece 
hidden in the sands, and head one floor down from where you are and into the
room directly under where you just were. 

Ruins Key 3
------------

After obtaining the 2nd key, head out and then downstairs two flights, and 
defeat the Buzzy Beetle crawling around. Head down some more stairs, and
ignore the room northeast of where the Buzzy Beetle was. Use your 2nd Ruins
Key on the door west of where you found the Buzzy Beetle.

In here, head left and ignore all the coffins until you come across a ? 
Block. Hit it, and 3 Pokey Mummies will come out from the coffins, and the
door will close at the other side of the room. Defeat the Pokey's, and
soon enough, when battling some Pokies, you will meet a new enemy, so Iíll
list that now.

It's really only a purple bat, but hardly any of your attacks will hit it.
Quake hammer works quite well. After defeating them, the next Ruins Key will
pop up where the ? Block was.

Ruins Key 4
------------

Unlock the door to your left and enter the new room. 

Go downstairs and use Bombette's ability to blow up the wall. Fall down in
the next room, and you will be next to a Super Block. I recommend upgrading
Bombette, because we need her power very soon. Use the spring to go back up,
and head into the previous area. Go upstairs, and use Parakarry's ability to
take Mario to the other side. Enter the next room, and Tutankoopa complains
about Mario entering this room. If you look at the wall, it has a treasure,
and an arrow pointing left (<--) This is a puzzle room, and took me a while
to figure out. Basically, you have to hit certain switches in a certain 
order so you end up at a place with a chest. Climb up the green stairs, and
hit the switch to rotate them. Fall off, back to ground level, and go up the
green stairs that you just went up. Hit another green switch, and head up 
the green stairs to your left. Head left, and then down the red stairs, and
hit the switch to rotate them. Fall off onto ground level, and head up the 
green stairs near the door at the other side. Ignore the switch, and head up
more stairs, red this time, to the highest part of this room. If you wish to
get the useless Slow Go badge, head left from the very top, and before you
fall down, stay on the wall, and slowly walk to the left. You'll fall on the
fence, and walk to the left, then south, and you'd notice part of the wall 
has a strange black line. Walk through it to a darkened room, and open the
chest for a Slow Go badge. 

Go back to the top again, and fall down this time, and you'll end up in front
of a giant treasure chest. Open it, and it reveals a Super Hammer! Yes, this 
hammer is a upgraded version of the hammer Goompa gave to you, adds one 
attack point to your hammer while in battle, and lets you destroy Grey 
Blocks! 

So let's put our new hammer to the test. Smash the Grey Block, and head to
the right, out of this blasted room. Head right again, to the area where the
3 Pokey Mummies where, and head to the other side of this room until you 
come across read stairs. Climb them, and jump on the switch that it leads
to. Climb the red stairs again from ground level, and smash the Grey Block,
then collect an artifact after smashing the block. Head back to the room
you just came from, and head into the wall Bombette cracked. Jump down again
to where you found the Super Block, and crack the wall to the right with
Bombette, and enter the room.

Ruin Stones/Ruins Key 
----------------------

Get Bombette ready, because we're about to battle a very defensive enemy. 
Hit the Grey Block, and then a Stone Chomp will attack Mario.

If you upgraded Bombette before, her Power Bomb can wipe the Stone Chomp out
cold in 1 turn flat. Head up the stairs, and collect the Diamond Stone on 
the pedestal. Head out of this room, and continue heading right again to the
long hallway. Defeat all the Beetles that manage to get you, and in the 
middle of this hallway lays a map, which shows the items hidden in this 
place. Continue right, and out of this hallway, and hammer the Grey Block in
the corner of the screen to reveal a pink switch. Jump on it, and the wall
behind you will pop out, letting you get the Ruins Key.

NOTE: In that hallway was a map showing where all the Stones are, so if you
cannot understand me from now on, use that map as a guide.

Head left again into the hallway, and come out and jump on the spring and go
right to the next area. Head right into where you got the artifact, and go
into the next area. Head up the stairs, and enter the room right of the red
light farthest from you. In this room is another Stone, so hit the Grey 
Block and defeat another Stone Chomp with Bombette's Power Bomb. Head up to 
the pedestal and collect the Pyramid Stone.

Now for the last stone, head up the stairs closest to you, and head down the
stairs to your left into the room where the artifact was. Head left again,
and then down some stairs, to where a Buzzy Beetle is. Defeat it, and then 
head right into a room where there are some Stone Chomp statues. After some
more of Tutankoopa's annoying threats, continue right and open the locked
door after going up 2 stairs. Jump on the switch to make some sand fall 
down, and then go to where the sand went (directly one room under.) Head
across it, and then enter the room to the right. Hit the Grey Block...hey?
Where are the Stone Chomps? Amway, collect the Lunar Stone and then head...
oh no, there they are! 

After getting all the stones and defeating the Stone Chomps, head back two
rooms, to where the Stone Chomp statues where. You have to place the stones
in the right statue (out of the leftmost, middle and the rightmost slots.)
So to figure out which stone goes where, head right and then up the stairs
into the next room. If you look at the miniature statues here, the Lunar
Stone goes to the far right, the Pyramid Stone goes to the far left, and the
Diamond stone goes in the middle. Head back a room, and put them in their
corresponding statue, so that the ground behind Mario becomes a staircase.

Head down the stairs, and heal at the Heal Block you come across. Head down
some more stairs, and enter the room to your right. When you enter, you hear
another one of Tutankoopa's threats, and then after he talks, save at the
Save Block right in front of you. Enter the next room and be prepared.

When you enter this room, it's all dark and you can't see anything, as the
Tutankoopa starts blabbing about how Mario didn't get scared. This isn't
really a mummy, in my opinion, only because he mentions about Bowser, so he
is probably is just a dressed up male Magikoopa. Keep letting him talk until
you finally start this battle.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle: Tutankoopa & Chain Chomps
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

 HP: 30
 ATK: Shell Throw-  3 
      Magical Chomp-2
 DEF: 0

Chain Chomps
 HP: 4
 ATK:3
 DEF:3

This battle actually turns out to be quite annoying. Only because once he
summons his loyal subjects, the Chain Chomps, you tend to steer of defeating
the Tutankoopa but try to dispose of the Chain Chomp. Once he summons his
Chain Chomp, start pulverizing it with Bombette's Power Bomb to hit it and 
the Tutankoopa, and use Mario's Power Bounce only the Tutankoopa. The other
way of defeating it is to use Parakarryís Shell Shot while Mario uses his 
hammer with the aid of the D-Down Pound badge. This battle turns out to be 
quite easy, but still, very annoying. And sometimes, when Tutankoopa uses
his Magical Chomp attack, it backfires and hits him instead. Perfect!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
After you defeat Tutankoopa, he gets chased away by his angry Chain Chomp,
and the next spirit comes...
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

As Tutankoopa gets chased away, touch the next Star Spirits card to free it,
and finish Chapter Two! 

****Who is Tubba Blubba? [025]***********************************************

Back with Peach again, Bowser walks in and says how Mario defeated the Mummy
(Tutankoopa) and how he was weak anyway, but until Kammy walks in, Peach 
looks rather mad. Kammy starts whispering things to Bowser, and he roars out
what she said, saying that the Star Spirit in Tubba Blubba's castle was able
to escape. He also mentions about how Tubba Blubba is invincible, and then
once they walk out, Twink reveals himself and you gain control.

Hit the old button behind the picture next to the fireplace again to open 
the secret passage, and enter it. For once Bowser was smart, and took away
his diary from Peach, so that option is down. Head out the door to your
right, but just be careful of the guards, avoid their lights and you can stay
safe. You don't exactly travel far, just to the door beneath you.

The room turns out to be a library. So get to the other side, without being
caught by the guards on the way. On the way you should get a Power Rush 
badge. Remember that purple chest, back at Merluvlee's house? This is where 
it comes in handy. Exit the library from where you came, or just get caught
by a guard. Head into the room with the guards either way, and head to the
door to the right of the room, closest to the stairs. When you enter, you'd
notice the purple chest, like we saw back at Merluvlee's house. But if you
go further, you will obtain, a Deep Focus Badge! After getting the two 
badges, open the chest and place them in it, and head back to the library.

Go to the other side again, while avoiding the guards, and Peach will start
to overhear two of Bowser's followers talking about the invincible Tubba 
Blubba, and how he loves ghosts. They also mention Forever Forest, and that
he lives at Gusty Gulch. He also says something about a secret that may ruin
Tubba Blubba. Then after Peach's loudmouth, she gets caught and taken back 
to her room. Typical.

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

==Dry Dry Desert==

After you finish being Peach, you're back at Dry Dry Desert, where the Star
Spirit, Mamar, give Mario another Star Power, Lullaby, which puts enemies to
sleep (Goodbye Sleepy Sheeps)! Well, you know what to do. Time to head back
to Toad Town, so use the Map from before to navigate your way back to Mt.
Rugged. Oh, and on your way, where Kolorado is, give him that Artifact you
found back at Dry Dry Ruins, for a Star Piece.

==Mt. Rugged==

Make your way back all the way to the Train Station. And if you didn't beat
Buzzar before, here's the guide again.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Optional Boss: Buzzar

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
HP: 40
ATK: Wind Whoosh    - 1/2/3
     Claw Grab     - 4
     Foot Tackle   - 3
     Feather Spears- 2
DEF: 0

That's a heaping of HP, but if you're strong enough you will do just fine.
Power Jump it, make it sleepy with your Sleepy Sheeps, if you have any, and
use Parakarry's attacks against it. It's Wind Whoosh attack does a certain 
amount of damage depending on how many times you press A. Parakarryís 
Shell Shot does greatly, and Mario can just keep Refreshing. His Claw Grab
also does some damage, and a hard one to get out of too, otherwise, you'll
do splendidly. Foot Tackle is easy to block, and feather spears too.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
After defeating him, he flies down into the backround, never to be seen.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok, NOW go to the Train Station.

==Mount Rugged Train Station==

Now that we're here, on your way down to the Train, hit the Grey Block to 
get to a Super Block. Upgrade Parakarry (recommended) and board the train
after saving.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Before the next Chapter [026]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One again we have some more things to do, so here they are.

*=Must Do

*Toad Town Tunnels
-----------------
With our new hammer, we can access even more of these pipes! Once again, go
to Section B for some insights on what you get. The one new enemy you will
meet is the Paragloomba.

Koopa Koot
-----------------
He once again has more favors, and more Star Pieces! Skip to Section B for
some more information on what tasks he has for you today. If you followed my
Toad Town Tunnels guide just now, which I HIGHLY recommend, go to Koopa 
Village via the centre blue pipe after defeating the Electro Blooper for 
some shortcuts. He only wants three favors, so its pretty easy.

Letters
-----------------
Remember all those letters we got? Well that belongs to a giant chain which
takes you all over Mushroom Kingdom! I'm yet to find the reward, but for now
just keep following the locations of the letters.

Chuck Quizmo
-----------------
Heís still out there? Well, go find him for more pieces!

And that's all we have for this part! Let's continue our Story, so head back
to Toad Town Main! 

==Toad Town, main==

Ok, the reason I made you come here is because we must get ready for some 
things beforehand. One being about Luigi's mysterious disappearance, but we 
won't worry about that right now. Head to Rowf's shop, and buy some badges,
Merlow for some more Badges, and, while your are Merluvlee's house, remember
back in Peach's Castle when we put two badges in the purple chest? Well, if
you open it, oh, what do you know, there they are! Oh, and one of those 
badges being Deep Focus, which I HIGHLY recommend for this next Chapter.

Head over to Toad Town southeast after all that.

==Toad Town, southeast==

If you haven't noticed, there IS a bridge to the east of this place, so 
start to cross it as, well, a Toad starts claiming he saw a ghost. What a 
loon. But, wait, what was that...oh, must've been me. After talking to the
petrified Toad, the ghost appears again! Run away! But lucky for you, the
ghosty go bye bye. After the Toad stops telling Mario what to do, head into 
the area to the east, and Save in this area. Then head into the...very...
creepy and...dark scary...forest, where the Bo...I mean Ghost, says for Mario
to see his Master about a Star Spirit, and if you don't it will get you. So
now, head into the...very...creepy and...dark scary...forest.

From the sign that is totally useless, head to the opposite of where you are,
and defeat the Piranha Plant that attacks you. Head into the area opposite of
the sign at the gate, and a man, Oaklie, will tell you not to go through here
and that you should turn back. Talk to him again, and it says that you are 
allowed in because you're invited to Boo's Mansion, Boo's are the ghosts, by
the way. When he speaks, he mentions about how your surroundings guide you to
the end, and if you don't pay attention, you end up at the start again. So 
heed its warning about this area's clue, which is the trees, and enter it.

For the rest of this part I will not write a guide. Just use that map as a
guide, and if you get lost, tilt your head and follow Mario's turns. 


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2) House of Boos [029]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Boo's Mansion Yard==
Items: 
 Strange Leaf in bushes
---------------------
After your partner talks a bit, open the nearby gate, which suddenly will 
slam shut after entering. As the gate closes, Bootler, the Butler, tells you
that the Master is at the highest room in the mansion. Once he fades away,
Save and Heal, and head right. Don't go to the next area, but in the bushes
you will find a Strange Leaf. Just saying really. NOW enter the mansion.

==Boo's Mansion==
Items: 
 Super Boots in the chest on the lower levels (Boo Mini-game)
 Record with the mass amounts of Boo's in the yellow cupboard
 Weight in the chest where the record player is
 Super Shroom one floor above the shop, in the wooden box
 Two apples in wooden box where the vase is, above the library.
Star Pieces: 
 Hidden floor panel in the room with the Super Boots
 Wooden Boxes, spin jump them in the library for a Piece.
 Hidden floor panel in living room
 Hidden floor panel in room with grandfather clock
 Hidden floor panel in room where you get the record for the record player
Enemies: 
 Boos?
---------------------
Amazingly there are NO enemies in this house. Firstly, head right towards the
green couch. You will see one of the seat parts are a yellowish gold. Jump on
it, and Mario will be flinged to the lights. Not important now, but I was 
making you aware of what happened. (Did you notice?)

Go to the brown door and try to open it, and a Boo will scare you! BOO 
*heart attack*. Once in, ignore everything, and jump on the box to the right 
of that fancy vase over there. Jump into it, and you become 8-Bit Mario! 
Have fun, and exit. 

Back in the lobby, climb the stairs to the right, and head to the right end 
of that floor. You'll see a frame with no picture in it, and the only way to 
get to the third floor, according to the frame, is to find whatever goes in
this frame. Strange...so let's find it! Head into the door closest to the 
no-picture frame.

In this room, go towards the oddly colored cupboard and press A, and a heap
of Boo's fly out! This is another short minigame of Paper Mario, so I hope
that you have fun. The aim is to keep your eye on where the record is going,
while the Boo's pass and rotate with it. Don't worry about not finding it or
losing track, this mini-game is accessible every time you enter. Plus, if you
DO lose track of it, wait for a Boo to pass it, and your all good. Once you
obtain the record, head next-door, into a room where a Boo is guarding a chest
and keeping an eye out for thieves. In here, basically you must distract the 
Boo, but how? How you say? Let's DANCE! Head towards the record player to the
right of this room, and insert the record you recently obtained. Play the 
record in time with the music, which basically is the classic Mario song. 
Head quickly towards the chest after you press B, once the Boo comes to dance
along that funky beat. Open the chest for a weight. What do we do with a 
weight? 

Well, remember the lights in the lobby? Well, because we let go of it the 
lights went back up, so that door that was revealed behind the nearby 
cupboard? Jump on the yellow portion of the couch once again, and as Mario's
weight lowers the lights, the weight can be used to keep it like that! So 
after putting the weight on, enter the secret room. 

Don't bother looking in that chest, the lights will only plummet down, only
to miss Mario due to the treasure chest blocking it. Head down the stairs,
and for those doing a re-run while reading my walkthrough, would know the 
secret about the wall. Being utterly useless due to the fact you'll be on the
lower levels of the library on the other side, please just enter the door.
Enter yet another door, to the right, and your in a foggy room. Head right,
and open the nearby chest. It's pretty huge, so this must be good! Open it,
and it reveals *drum roll* THE SUPER BOOTS...with the Boo's again. Win the
mini-game, AGAIN, but with some more throwing action, and obtain, once again,
the upgraded version of Mario's Boots! Yes yes, this lets Mario's jump
attack/s gain 1 damage point, and lets Mario use a nifty new ability outside
of battle. Basically its the classic Mario butt stomp, but rephrased to sound
better as "The Spin Jump." 

This ability, lets Mario penetrate the wooden floor boards in the ground, and
reveal hidden panels for Star Pieces. Head towards the Boo that was left 
behind, and he says something about a hidden floor panel in this room. Start
Spin Jumping (press A in mid air after you jump once), until you see a 
portion of the floor rise, then fall. The way you do this, is to figure out 
where the panels edges are, and spin jump on the right or left edges, to 
flip the panel so that the Star Piece comes out. Another panel was where the
record was for the record player, near the frame with no picture. Get that,
and come back to this room.

Head towards the wooden panel, and use Mario's new ability to head through it
with ease. In this room, is the Boo Mansion Shop, which I say has some great
items up for sale...but not for you. Lady Boo unfortunately said not to sell 
Mario anything, so we have to figure out what that pink mushroom does later.
Walk left, and hit the nearby switch, to reveal another one. Hit it again, to
reveal another GIANT switch, and jump on the chair onto the boxes ONTO the 
switch and spin jump to activate it. Basically that reveals some stairs, so
head up them. In this place again, before you enter the door to the lobby, 
Spin Jump all the wooden boxes in the room, until you obtain a Super Mushroom
from one of the boxes. Head into the lobby via all the doors, and enter the 
room to the right of the room you just came out of.

Spin jump the wooden boxes at the right of the room, starting with the most
high box, to obtain a apple...or two. Spin jump the wooden panel in the 
centre of this room to head into the library. You end up on some shelves, but
don't jump off just yet. Use Parakarry's ability to cross the gap northeast
from Mario to obtain a Boo Portrait. Use Parakarry's ability to get back, 
then head to where Mario landed on the shelves in this room. Jump to the 
right, and try to land on the two boxes stacked vertically. Spin jump them to
get a Star Piece. Head right now, and bomb the nearby wall to reveal a path 
back to a previously visited room. Climb the stairs, and exit the room back
into the lobby. Head towards the frame with no picture, and insert the Boo
Portrait, and he will let you teleport to the third floor by jumping into it.

Once on the third floor, enter any of the two mansion doors, into a room with
a strange blue scenery. Once a mystery voice calls out, it turns out to be 
Bow, and her Butler, Bootler. Quite creative, really. Once Bootler explains 
about Tubba Blubba eating some of his fellow Boo's back at a place called 
Gusty Gulch, Bow says there is a reward for all this. What's the reward, 
999 coins? Infinite fame? No, it's the Star Spirit that flew away from Tubba
Blubba, Skolar! Apparently, he is the most powerful and useful spirit, so try
and work really hard in the upcoming mission. After Bow orders Mario to save
the Boo's, she abruptly tells Mario that she will join his team. Bootler, 
being the snobby ghost he is, insists she doesn't, but Bow really having no 
ears, joins you anyway. Read Section A about Bow and her attacks, and exit 
the Mansion. 

==Boo's Mansion Yard==

Save and Heal, and head to the area right of the house. Bow tells some Boo's
that where being all invisible and hidden to open the gate, so you can enter.
Head into the next area.

==Windy Mill==
Enemies: 
 Hyper Paragoomba
---------------------
Nearly there. Defeat all the Hyper Paragoomba's, and head into the next area
once again.

Those little critters are pretty powerful, and notice your Boots donít seem as
strong. And for the users of the Power Bounce, please un-equip it. The boots
make it nearly impossible to execute due to the spinning in mid-air. But
you will be using them again soon...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
3) The Heartful Tubba Blubba [030]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Gusty Gulch==

Heartful? Pff. Once you arrive into this town, a brownish Boo will start 
speaking to both you and Bow...poor Herbert. Once you gain some control over
Mario again, head right and SAVE at the nearest Block. Keep heading uphill 
to the next section of this town, and heal. Head more to the right, and a Boo
will talk to Mario until he yells to all the Boo's Tubba Blubba is coming.
With no choice, Bow comes out (if not already she was) and tells Mario to 
press C-Down to use her power, which, by the way, is Outta Sight. Once you 
and Bow are invisible, the Boo that screamed for everyone to take cover is, 
well, doomed. He being the only Boo visible, becomes noticed by the overly
fat lipped monster. Once Tubby *snicker* eats the Boo, whoís name happens to
be Stanley, Mario and Bow are to bolt right to his...house and dispose of him
once and for all. Head to the next area after deactivating Bow's ability.

==Gusty Outskirts==
Items: 
 1 Coin in ? Block
 Dizzy Dial on distant ledge
 Repel Gel in ? Block
 Another Coin in a ? Block
 Super Mushroom in ? Block 
 Letter behind a log where the Cleft is.
 Brick/Coin Block
 And once again, a coin in the ? Block
Star Pieces: 
 Behind the Brown rock near Super Mushroom
Enemies: 
 Hyper Cleft, Hyper Goomba, Hyper Paragoomba
---------------------
Once you enter, straight away hit the ? Block for a coin, and head right and
defeat the nearby Cleft, or in better terms, the Hyper Cleft.

Oh lord that IS some annoying defense (3) Too much sugar. Anyway, after
defeating it, head up the small hill and stand at the edge of the ledge and 
use Kooper's ability to obtain the distant Dizzy Dial. Head right and jump to
where the Hyper Goomba is and defeat it. Hit the two ? Blocks for a Repel Gel
and a coin. Behind a nearby log is a letter, and then head right defeating 
enemies to the next area. Note that only 5 Repel Gels are obtainable in this
game, unless you want to constantly waste 100 coins for 10 pigs and a random
outcome just for them. I'd save this one for the upcoming fight against 
Tubba Blubba's H...uhh...just save it ok?

Defeat the Hyper Paragoomba and head to the right and take the northern path
that leads to a gap. Obviously use Parakarry to get across, and defeat the 
Hyper Goomba waiting for you. Collect a Super Mushroom in the ? Block, and 
defeat the Hyper Cleft waiting for you. Near the rock it was guarding, has a
Star Piece hidden behind it, so access that by entering from the right. Hit 
the Brick Block, reveal a coin block. Hit the ? Block also for another coin.
After all that, head into the next area.

==Tubba Blubba's Front Yard==

Once you enter here, you'd notice the change of scenery. Head right and Save
at the Save Block, and continue right towards the front door, and enter.

==Tubba Blubba's House==
Items: 
 Castle Key 1 in chest, spin jump the wooden panel.
 Castle Key 2 in the spikes room
 Maple Syrup in castles only ? Block
Badges: 
 Mega Rush, in Tubba Blubba's room
Star Pieces:  
 On the table, left hallway
 On the table, large one
 On the bed, with the three panels and a spring.
Enemies: 
 Clubba
 Boss: Tubba Blubba (Invincibility makes him undefeatable)
---------------------
Castle Key 1
------------

I know this place might not be a castle, buts its WAY too huge for me to call
it a mansion.

Once you enter, you'll notice all those saucers flying around. Well, if they
see you, they will throw you straight out of this house, so be careful. If 
they do see you, switch to Bow as quick as you can and use Outta Sight to 
protect yourself. Head left while avoiding these aliens, and head into the 
big door.

Can you see that fat green sleeping enemy? That is a Clubba, and if you want
to battle it, run past it like crazy! Because these things are sleeping, 
sneaking past them is an option of defense. But because I have to run or else
my controller wont work, so basically Iím doomed. 

Ignore the door it was guarding, for its a useless room, for now. Head left, 
and defeat another Clubba. Head more to the left, and before entering the big
door, enter the smaller door to the north. 

Defeat the Clubba if desired, and get to the table via the boxes and chair.
Collect the star piece glistening on top of it. Head out into the hallway 
again, and enter the big door to the left. In this room, threes another Star
Piece on top a table, but it's inaccessible. Head into the small door, and head
all the way down the stairs defeating any Clubba's that dare try to challenge
you. Spin jump the wooden panel at the bottom of the stairs, and open the 
chest for a Castle Key. Head down, and jump off the ledge. A brown Boo is 
here, and he gives Mario advice about something on the highest room of the 
castle, and if you ever see Tubba Blubba, do NOT challenge him. Use Bow's
Outta Sight at ANY time he sees you. I repeat, DO NOT challenge him. Heal,
and head into the door to the left. This leads to a Super Block, so Iíd say
you have no choice, so upgrade Bow. If you have someone else available for
upgrading, you OBVIOUSLY didn't read my walkthrough properly..

Start heading up stairs, and you'll notice the flying saucers again. Use 
Bow to avoid them, and continue up the stairs back to the room with the big
table and star piece. Backtrack all the way to the first room, with the 4
saucers, and use the castle key on the door opposite of you. 

Castle Key 2
-------------
Head across this hallway, defeating all the Clubba's. Head up the stairs, 
defeating more of the Clubba's, and then avoid the saucers until the next 
room.

This room, is the upper section of the main lobby, so just head left. In the
next room, defeat the Clubba, avoid the saucer, defeat anther Clubba, and go
into the small door before the big door. In this room, is how they got the 
idea for Paper Mario and the Thousand Year Door, for whoever played it. In 
that game, we ended up with a Spike Shield, but we already have that, so now
what do we get? Well, the spikes come every 3-4 seconds, so in that period,
use Bow's Outta Sight before they come up, until you arrive at the chest.
Collect a Castle Key, and backtrack out of this room, or get hit by spikes,
and enter the larger door in the hallway to the left.

This room has some secrets for you to find. Firstly, the Clubba guards a door
and the Grandfather Clock is pushable, as well as you can fall down the 
middle, from the left, and end up on the table with a Star Piece. Firstly,
push the clock to the left, and enter the room. This is Tubby's room, so we 
must raid it! Open the drawer to the right of the already opened one, and 
jump on it, onto the higher one. Use Parakarry's ability to cross to the bed,
and collect some worthless coins. But oh, we are not done yet. Jump onto the
pillow, onto the back of the bed, onto the shelf, onto the books, and onto
another shelf. Head south, and right of the blue book, only to find a secret 
path! This leads to a dark dark room, where a Mega Rush badge lurks! Head out
of this room. This time, head south then right, and jump off the ledge onto
a table with a Star Piece. 

Head right three area's up the stairs, and through the path above the main
entrance again, and into the door. Now, I know we've been here before, but
for those who didn't notice, that sleeping Clubba is guarding a cracked wall.
Enter the wall, and spin jump the edges of the top right and left panels. IT
IS IMPORTANT TO SPIN JUMP THE EDGES! Because then you don't fall into the 
hole so you have a shortcut back up. Enter the top right hole onto a bed, and
use Parakarry's ability to get to the other bed where a D-Down Jump lurks. 
Onto the spring again, to the upper floor, and exit the room. Head right to 
the big door, and enter the room with the Grandfather clock again. This time,
defeat the Clubba guarding the door, and use your Castle Key to open it.

Hit the first ? Block of the castle for your first non-key related item, a 
Maple Syrup. Head up the stairs and enter another room.

In this room, be warned, lurks Tubba Blubba. Whenever he sees you, use Bow's
Outta Sight to avoid battling him. Head to the other side of the room, and 
ignore the door with the lock on it, and enter the smaller room. Defeat the
Clubba's here, and head left. There is a lot, so beware! Head straight through
them non-stop, and they won't get you. Collect the key at the end, and then
for the fun of it, use Bombette's ability, if you wish, to battle all the 
Clubba's, and exit the room.

Tubba Blubba is gone, so feel free to backtrack for items or Star Points. Use
the key either way on the nearby door and enter. In this room, there is a 
Save Block and Heal Block. This usually gives the sign of a upcoming boss,
but who knows. After doing what you wish, enter the next room. In this place,
its the main lobby again, but its the HIGHEST point. Head right, and enter 
the room. Head all the way to the right, and try to open the chest, and then
Tubba Blubba will walk in before you do so. He says he's in trouble for some
reason, and then he has some beauty sleep. Open the chest now, to free the 
talking key, Yakkey. (Get it? Yak-Key.) He says he is the key to the Windy
Mill in the foot of Gusty Gulch and that he asks that Mario's goal is to 
reveal whets inside. That wasn't exactly our goal, but either way, whatever
you answer, he will scream and Tubba Blubba will wake up. RUN! RUN AWAY! He
will try to challenge you, and by doing that, you must run losing coins. The
FIEND! He destroys the paths, so Mario makes a quicker exit. RUN SOME MORE!
After finally getting to the exit, try opening it.

==Tubba Blubba's Front Yard==

Outside, are the Boo's finally building enough courage to overcome Tubba
Blubba. As Mario comes out, the Boo's hold the door closed, and urge Mario to
go to the Windy Mill. Save at the nearby block, and equip your most POWERFUL
badges for the upcoming fight. Keep heading right and try to avoid the 
enemies, so that the thrill doesn't were off. Head into Gusty Gulch, and 
continue left with your badges equipped into Windy Mill. May I recommend the
Power Jump, Power Bounce, Power Smash, Smash Charge, Pretty Lucky, Damage 
Dodge and Deep Focus for this fight. If you cant equip them all, try the 
first 4.

==Windy Mill==
 
Head into the Windy Mill with Yakkey. Spin Jump the wooden panel on top the 
well, and fall in.

==Inside Windy Mill==

Head into the door to your right, and continue down the pathway into the door
near the sign. There were Hyper Goomba's there, but I didn't say, sorry. When
you enter the door, threes...well, more Hyper Goomba's. At the end of the 
corridor, is another sign, but just ignore it. Enter the door again. Oh lord,
more Hyper Goomba's. Ok, keep heading to the door. 

Finally, a room that is not a corridor. When you enter, you see this strange
thing on a pedestal...or rock, I don't know. Apparently, it talks, so just
listen to it blab about how Tubba Blubba is really a shell and the thing is
controlling it from afar. Very idiotic, we didn't know that, now did we? But
either way, it enters battle with you. Wow, we haven't had a boss fight in a
while now have we?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle: Tubba Blubba's Heart
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

HP: 50
ATK: Body Slam- 6
     Torando- 12
DEF: 0

Ok, this is like it said, Tubba Blubba's Heart. What do we do? Annihilate it!
For this battle, I say DEFINETLY get Bow out, for we need her Outta Sight. I
on the other hand, for your pleasure, had to Tattle, so I was basically 
doomed to a 12 point damage attack on the second round. Now, to beat it. Note
that when you get him to 5 HP, he will run away, so that's why I told you to
equip those super strong badges. Firstly, every time he starts glowing and 
shining, use Bow BEFORE Mario's turn, to make him invisible. The reason for 
this is because, 1, you can die in 3 shots if he gets you 3 times, and 2, if
we use Bow before Mario, Mario attacks instead of Bow next turn. Plus, sorry
if you realize, you can't hammer him. For those who want the easy way, use
Charge and Hammer Throw badges on it. Other than that, make sure you ALWAYS
have 2 FP! Plus, lucky for me, Merlee's lucky power activated, so I bet it
easily. Try to get him to 6 HP, so you can use a partner to finish him off.
He doesn't give Star Points, so, boo-hoo.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
HE RUNS! GET HIM!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can't catch him, so take your time. Just head out of the Windmill, so
you end up outside.

==Windy Mill==

Outside, the heart foolishly goes back into Tubba Blubba's body. If all those
mathy people, do the math, Tubba+No Heart=Invincibility, so, Tubba+Heart=
inverse of invincibility, equaling, utter weakness.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle: Tubba Blubba
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

HP: 10
ATK: Mario Squash- 4
     Hip Drop- 6
DEF:0

He is WEAK. I killed him with a Power Jump and a headbonk for Pete's sake.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Once you win, Tubba Blubba cries his heart out. Poor guy.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

After Tubba Blubba releases all the Boos, including Frankie, he gets all 
emotional, and runs away. Poor guy. After Lady Bow comes out, she says that
she agrees to stay with you longer, and to give you that Star Spirit back.
Touch it, and end of chapter!

**The Box of Shy Guys [031]*************************************************

As you can see, you're back at the floating castle. After Peach and Twink 
talk a bit, enter the secret passage, into Bowserís room. Before you enter it,
a bit of bad timing, it seems that Kammy Koopa and Bowser are in the room! 
Before they realize anything, it seems that the next Star Spirit is hidden
away in a place called Shy Guys Toy Box. After Bowser and Kammy finally see
Peach, Bowser asks Peach some things that Mario hates the most. Answer these
well, but I chose Mushroom, for life, Hammer Bros. for a new Tattle and more
experience, and Koopatrol, for the same reason. After Peach is carried to her
room, we're back at Mushroom Kingdom, after that 3 minute Peach interval!

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

==Windy Mill==

Back at Windy Mill, the Star Spirit you just saved, is named Skolar. He gives
Mario the BEST Star Power, which is called Star Storm, a power that takes 
heaps of damage from all enemies on the battlefield! Let Skolar talk for a 
bit more, and then you gain control. Head left, into the Boo's Mansion again.

==Boo's Mansion, front yard==

Save and heal, and head south into Forever Forest.

==Forever Forest==

Once you enter here, unfortunately, Jr. Troopa has found Mario once again, and
has once again, added a new feature to his range of annoyances, and wants to
battle Mario, again. Unfortunately, he got even more annoying.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mini-Boss Battle: Jr. Troopa - Third Encounter
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

HP: 40
ATK:Skydive Kick- 5
DEF:1

This guy is even MORE annoying. Luckily, you have STAR STORM! So use that as
soon as possible. Keep Power Bouncing, Power Jumping and Shell-bashing him to
his death. His skydive kick isn't anything to worry about, plus I bet him 
with a few attacks from Mario while Goombario charged in the sidelines. Maybe
you can do that too.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
After you beat him, he screams and leaves, again.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

After he runs, keep heading into random gates until your OUT of here. Once 
your out, it turns out Jr. Troopa got out too. Why couldn't he stay there 
until he was a pile of bones...anyway, head into Toad Town, southeast.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Before the next chapter [032]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Toad Town, southeast==
Star Pieces: 
 Hidden Floor Panel where the guard is
---------------------
WARNING: SHY GUY INVASION!

When you enter this place, head south to the grass and use Mario's spin jump 
to uncover a hidden star piece in a floor panel. Head across the bridge to 
the left, and a Shy Guy runs out of a house, with a persons favourite fry 
pan. Right now, it's not important. Head left, into Toad Town, south.

==Toad Town, south==

After Twink comes down and delivers Mario the information, enter Harry's Shop
and trigger the Shy Guy event, which is the stealing of his Store Room Key.
Head right, and then up to Toad Town east.

==Toad Town, east==

As you enter here, a Shy Guy runs away into the last area, with a calculator.
Get rid of the two Shy Guys in the garden for a thanks from the gardening
Toad, then head towards the Post Office, and try to enter to trigger another
event, as a Shy Guy runs off with a Mail Bag. Head to the main section.

==Toad Town, main==

Head more to the left, and a Shy Guy unfortunately stole a mans dictionary. 
There are some more Shy Guys around somewhere, but for now, that's all we 
needed to do. Head to the east section again.

==Toad Town, east==

In here, you'd notice Merlon isn't in his house. Strange, go talk to him, and
he mentions something about a red palm tree, and a oracle. Fortunately, if you
run around a red palm tree in Dry Dry Outpost, you'd get something great. So,
off to Toad Town Tunnels! 

==Toad Town Tunnels==

Head to the room to the left, and pass the floor board (Look at Section B for
that part) and enter the Dry Dry Outpost warp pipe.

==Dry Dry Outpost==

After exiting the pipe, head left and run around the palm tree, about four or
five times, and then a Turban Toad will start talking to you. He says nothing
will happen if you run around the tree, but, he also had a dream that if you
do a spin jump in a whirling roofed house near a castle, something good will
happen. Urgh, back to Toad Town via the Tunnels.

==Toad Town, southeast==

Head up a area.

==Toad Town, east==

Enter Merlon's house.

==Merlon's House==
Badges: 
 Quick change
---------------------
Yes, a badge. Spin jump three times in front of the Crystal Ball, and then a
Quick Change badge falls from his attic. This, is by FAR, the most USEFUL
badge, EVER! Fortunately, it costs WAY less BP than in Paper Mario and the 
Thousand Year Door, so make room, and put it on! Head outside, and lets start
the before stuff.

*=Must Do

Koopa Koot Favors
--------------------
Yes, he is more needy. But when he needs a Nutty Cake, we can't make that for
him because of Tayce T.'s stolen frying pan. Plus, we get the Golden 
Membership card for the Playroom, too!

Dojo
-----
For those who haven't done it yet. People respect you in different ways when
you get diploma's.

Chain letter mayhem
--------------------
If you haven't delivered your letters yet, now is the time. You get nice Star
Pieces. 

*Toad Town Tunnels
------------------ 
Explore the new section of Toad Town Tunnels, new enemy too, called the Dark
Koopa.

Composers Plea
--------------
In the Toad Town Port, in Club 64, the singer and the writer cannot sing, 
because they have no music, so they ask you to go find someone who is a 
singer/composer. Do we know anyone, well if you don't, Dry Dry Outpost has 
someone who might (Reward = FX Badge, this is accessible from Chapter 2.)

Star Pieces
-----------
Throughout the game, before we got our new boots, there were hidden panels
throughout the Kingdom, here they are:

 -Forest Clearings centre, to the left of Goomba Village
 -Under the Village, two pieces in a panel, near the Grey Block (revist area
 after getting the first one to get the second)
 -Pleasant Path's fork, near the Candy Canes
 -Koopa Village's first area, in the grass
 -Koopa Bros. Fortress path, where the coin trap was laid
 -Just after Goomba King's Fortress, near the fence before the next area
 -South of the Stone Cactus (look at Dry Dry Desert Map)
 -On Mt. Rugged, near the sandy patch with 4 Monty Moles infesting it
 -Dry Dry Outpost, on the roof near Moustafa, it looks like an L

After all that, head to Toad Town, south. 

==Toad Town, south==

Talking to all the Toads here, one says (near the left area exit) that the 
Shy Guys ran into that yellow house, facing the Port. Enter it, and the music
changes. Does anyone remember me talking about this place? Well, the secret
in this place is...hey, where did that Shy Guy come from! Hm..suspicious. 
Any who, go ask Merlon. Once he tells you what to do (become *beep*), become
*beep* and wait for a Shy Guy to appear. Once he comes in, he sings a bit, 
and enters a secret doorway on the wall. Swap out *beep* for anyone else, and
then enter the doorway after disabling *beep*'s power. In here, you'd notice
a spring, and a abnormally huge box. Jump on the spring, and Mario is
magically shrunk INTO the box!

Chapter 3: Trials in the Toy Box [033]

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1) The Blue Station [034]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
==SGTB, Blue Station==
Items: 
 Coin line in air, spin jump box
 "              ", on the third box
 Coin in ? Block (3)
 Thunder Bolt, on the giant 3 block
 Mushroom (Maybe), near the chest
 Storeroom Key in chest
 Invisible ? Block at station, stone cap
 Mystery/Fright Jar in invisible ? Blocks, left area
Badges:
 Power Plus in chest guarded by Anti-Guy
Star Pieces:
 Hidden Floor Panel, south of the only Toad (Station)
 Behind the lime hexagonal prism (2)
 On the leftmost house
Enemies: 
 Shy Guy, Sky Guy, Groove Guy
---------------------
Wow, this is all in a box? Well, any who, welcome to Shy Guys Toy Box (SGTB)!
In this place, we have to solve some pointless mysteries and some wacked out
ones too! Firstly, head south of the sleeping Toad, and spin jump to reveal a
panel, with a Star Piece. If you talk to the sleeping Toad, you cannot ride a
train, because the track is unfortunately broken. Save, and head to the right
area.

When you come here, you see Kammy Koopa putting a Mushroom (remember, the 
things we told Bowser?) into a chest. Once she flies away, head to the box
under the coins, and spin jump to be catapulted to them. In this area, we 
meet a not-so new enemy, the Shy Guy.

After defeating it, head right to the box and spin jump on it to be catapulted
to the colourful cubes. Spin jump another box, while collecting coins, and 
jump off the colorful cubes. Head right, and meet another new Shy Guy related
enemy, the Sky Guy. (Cheap name)

Head right, and then behind that limeish hexagonal prism for a Star Piece. 
Continue heading right, and you'll come across some houses. Continue right,
and ignore them, and hit the ? Block for a coin. Head left, and enter the
house in the centre. Climb the stairs to the roof, and use Parakarry's 
ability to fly to the house to the left, for a Star Piece. Head back to the
centre houses roof, and fly right with Parakarry to the rightmost house. Jump
off the right of the house, down to another ? Block containing a coin. Head
south, to the springy box, and spin jump it to be catapulted to the wall of
colorful blocks. Head north, and use Parakarry to head right onto the ? 
Block, to the other giant blocks, and hit the ? Block for a Thunder Bolt.

Jump off, and head right to collect the item you told Kammy Koopa to place.
Open the chest, and get a Storeroom Key, one of the items, stolen by the Shy
Guys. Head all the way back to the Train Station. This time, head to the left
area.

In here, head left and defeat the Shy Guy. Keep heading left, and you'll see
a very grey-looking Shy Guy. He is actually a Anti-Guy, one of the hardest 
enemies to defeat. Ignore him, for we cannot defeat him now, and head left.
After about 3 seconds, you'll come across another Shy Guy related enemy, 
called the Groove Guy.

After defeating the Groove Guy, head left, and hit the ? Block for a coin, 
and then enter the next area.

In here, are Shy Guys who run away from you! Only because they have all one 
item that were stolen by townsfolk in Toad Town. The rest of them have
normal items. Defeat all of them, for a calculator, Fire Flower, a Mushroom
and two Cake Mixes. After all that, head back to the Train Station, and jump
on the spring back to Toad Town.

==Toad Town, south==
Items:
 Snowman Doll in Storeroom
 Volt Shroom in Storeroom
 Toy Train in Storeroom
 Dizzy Dial in Storeroom
Badges:
 I Spy Badge with Rowf
---------------------
In this house again, head outside, and right to Harry's Shop. Remember how a
Shy Guy stole his key? Well, let's go open the door! In here, lays four items
up for grabs, a Snowman Doll, Volt Shroom, a Dizzy Dial, and a Toy Train. 
Firstly, all these items, except the Dizzy Dial, I find very useful. I put 
them all on check, incase Iíd need them later. That Toy Train, however, is a
item we need, so get that no matter what. After that, head to Rowf's Shop, 
and return his calculator, so that you can buy Badges again, plus he gives
you a very useful Badge called I Spy, which lets you find hidden panels. Rowf
also puts up some very powerful badges, if you bought the previous ones, like
Group Focus, and Spin Smash. Then after that, enter Shy Guy's Toy Box.

==SGTB, Blue Station==
 
Head to the Brown Toad sleeping, and try speaking to him to make the item 
list pop up. Use the Toy Train you obtained recently, and nothing happens, 
for it's too big. So, lets head back to the entrance, via the spring.

==Toad Town, south==

Don't leave the room, just approach the box and put the Toy Train in. Once 
you do, it turns into a giant train, allowing you to travel between stations.
Head back into the Toy Box.

==SGTB, Blue Station==

Once you land, head to the conductor, or the Brown Toad at the station path,
and talk to him. He says you can use the two switches to navigate throughout
the 4 stations. So, head south, and hit the pink arrow to the right, and head
to the Pink Station.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2) The Pink Station [035]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==SGTB, Pink Station==
Items:
 Mail Bag in the chest, at the Station
 Coin (2) in the ? Blocks
 Tayce T.'s frying pan, in the rightmost chest
 Invisible ? Block in-between two ? Blocks, left area
Badges:
 Defense Plus in the chest
 Ice Power in chest
Star Pieces:
 Hidden Floor Panel south of the Pink Toad (2)
Enemies: Shy Guy, Sky Guy, Medi Guy, Groove Guy, Hammer Bro. (maybe)
---------------------
Head south and spin jump to reveal a hidden floor panel for 2 Star Pieces. Go
to the right, and open the chest for a Mailbag, one of the goods stolen from
Toad Town. Head south, and into another area. In here, Kammy Koopa reveals 
the enemy you told her, which for me, was a Hammer Bro. Continue heading 
right, and defeat the Sky Guy. Somewhere in this area you will meet a Medi
Guy.

Those things are annoying, and should always be top priority in a battle. 
Defeat the Sky Guy, and head right, jump on the springy box to get catapulted
to the upper parts, and head left. Defeat the Sky Guy, and open the chest for
a Defense Plus Badge. Head right, and jump on the springy box you come across
to get flung to the lower levels again.

Head right, and stand near the glass fence to make a Shy Guy run after you.
Quickly head right, and stand against the big blue wall to the left of the 
windows, so that Mario is rotated inwards, so that you can head right to the
other side of the glass fence. Head right, and hit the ? Block for a coin.

Head towards the nearby chest to get a Ice Power badge, and head right to the
chest, with whatever may be guarding it, which for me, was a Hammer Bro.

It's pretty powerful if you picked it, so be ready. Open the chest for Tayce
T.'s frying pan. Head back to the station. 

Back here, if you haven't collected the second Star Piece in the panel, do so
now. Head to the left area this time.

Make sure you have the Ice Power equipped, for you'll need it. Head left, and
jump onto the flowery blocks to get a coin. Keep going right, and battle, yet
another Shy Guy relative, the Spy Guy. Head left to the next area.

In here, keep heading left until you come across a immensely overweight Shy
Guy, called the Gourmet Guy. He's really hungry, or he won't move. He wants
a sweet cake. So, go back to Blue Station, and make your way to Tayce T. in
Toad Town.

==Toad Town==
Star Piece:
 In Toad Town Port, southeast of Save Block
---------------------
Once in her house, you better have her frying pan, because that's what we 
need. Give her the frying pan, and she cooks you something extra special, a
cake! What a coincidence, we needed that! Head back to Shy Guy's Toy Box, 
once you have the cake. (Make sure you collect that Star Piece)

==SGTB, Blue Station==

Flip the switch, and enter the Pink Station.

==SGTB, Pink Station==
Items:
 Super Soda, hidden ? Block to the left of the big red 1
 Coins (4) in ? Blocks
 Coin Block in-between two ? Blocks
---------------------
Once here, go back to the Gourmet Guy, and give him that cake. He literally
goes crazy, and starts jumping up and down about its tastiness. I want one!
Well, once he jumps up, he drops a Cookbook, so collect that for later use.

Head across the track he was blocking, and head right past the big red 1, and
start jumping around until you get a Super Soda. Head to the right, and 
defeat the Groove Guy. Sooner or later, you'll meet a new Guy, called the 
Pyro Guy.

Wow, those are the most threatening 'Guys ever! Just defeat them, and head into
the next area, while hitting the ? Blocks for 2 coins. Keep heading right,
until you come across two ? Blocks and a Brick Block, containing 2 coins and
a coin block with 10 coins. Keep heading right, and defeat the Pyro Guy, into
the next area.

In here, pull the pink switch, by standing in front of it and pressing A, so 
that the broken track is mended for use. Head back to the Train, and hit the
switch to head off to the Green Station.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
3) The Green Station [036]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==SGTB, Green Station==
Items:
 6 Coins on the moving paths
 Coin Block on the pink block 
 6 Coins surrounding the Star Piece
 Invisible ? Block, top right of station, contains a Fire Flower
Badges:
Star Pieces:
 Hidden floor panel, south of green Toad
 In lower room in 2nd area, between 6 coins
Enemies: Shy Guy, <Enemy you picked>
---------------------
Once you come here, Save, and collect a Star Piece from the floor panel, 
south of the green Toad. Head right, and you'll see some boxes. They serve no
purpose for now, and don't even try hitting them, if you get the order wrong,
you must defeat 4 Shy Guys. Head off to the only area, to the right.

Take out Bow for this section, and watch the cut scence of Kammy summoning the
event you told Bowser, which for me, was a Koopatrol. Head right, and right
the moving paths, collecting the 3 coins on the way. Keep taking paths that 
head right, and collect another 3 coins. Once you come to a fence, use Bow to
become transparent so that you pass through it. Once you pass through it, 
defeat the Shy Guy, with the parchment, which turns out to be a mystery note.
You can't read it for now, so you have to find someone who is very smart. Go
right, and you'll find a Slot Machine. If you care to gamble, be my guest.
If you get two Stars, you get a Mushroom, and 3 Stars will earn you about 15
Mushrooms. Shy guys are obvious, and coins are too. Head right and defeat the
Spy Guy, and climb up the long blocks. In here, take the first orange block,
climb the green block, and use Parkarry to get to the pink block at the right
timing. Over here, is a Coin Block, so hit that for a average of 10 coins, 
but the block is moving, so I only got 4. Head right, and south, so you end 
up on the lower blocks. Walk right, and climb the pink block to the lime 
block, and enter the room to the right. Collect a Star Piece, and 6 coins.

Head back out, and climb to the pink block where the Coin Block was. This 
time, use Parkarry to get to the blue block to the right, and use him again
to land on the roof, above where the Star Piece was. Walk right and defeat 
the Koopatrol, if you picked it...

These things are so threatening, they have a final smash attack with a power
of 10! Amazing...anyway, open the chest to reveal a Dictionary. Now that we
have done this area...now what? Well, firstly, let's return these items.

==Toad Town, south==

Now, let's see...we have a Cookbook...and a dictionary....accompanied by a 
Mystery Note. O.k., lets deliver the Cookbook first, so head of to Tayce T. in
Toad Town, southeast.

==Toad Town, southeast==

Deliver the book, and Tayce T. talks about cooking two ingredients at once!
Wow, what does a Ultra Shroom and a Jammin' Jelly cook into...well, the 
answer, is a Jelly Ultra! The most powerful and refilling item, ever, created
in Paper Mario! It restores 50 HP and FP, so it's very good. Any who, lets go 
deliver that Mail Bag, to the Post Office now.

==Toad Town, east==
Star Piece:
 For giving back the Mailbag
---------------------
Head into the Post Office and give back the bag, for a Star Piece. Go to the
main parts of town now.

==Toad Town, main==
Star Piece:
 Hidden Floor Panel, in grassy area (2)
 From Russ T. for giving back his dictionary
---------------------
Head south when you come here, and spin jump to reveal a hidden panel, for a 
Star Piece, spin jump again for another. If that doesn't work, go out of the
area and come back to try again. Head into the top-leftmost house. Firstly,
give Russ T. his dictionary back, and collect a Star Piece, then talk to him
again and get him to translate the parchment. The note says "Hit yellow,
green, red, and then blue." Hmm, I wonder...before you head back, make a trip
to the Shooting Star Summit.

==Shooting Star Summit==
Star Piece:
 Hidden Floor Panel, south of sign (2)
---------------------
Head across the bridge, and south of the sign. Spin jump to reveal a Star 
Piece. Now, head to Merluvlee's house.

==Merluvlee's House==
Star Piece:
 Right of the front door
 Train Station, south of the right of the track
---------------------
Head towards the door, but then Spink jump to the right to reveal a floor 
panel, for a Star Piece. Buy some badges, and head out, and hit the same
floor panel south of the sign again for another Star Piece. Now, go to the
Train Station quickly, in Toad Town, and follow the track to the right, and
spin jump to reveal a Star Piece. Head back to the Toy Box.
 
==SGTB, Blue Station==

Enter the train, and skip Pink Station to Green Station.

==SGTB, Green Station==

Back here, hit the boxes with your hammer in the order of what the parchment
said (yellow, green, red then blue) to make a hidden track appear, letting
you head of to the Red Station...so what are you waiting for?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
4) The Red Station [037]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==SGTB, Red Station==
Items:
 Shooting Star, on brick block
 Sleepy Sheep in ? Block before the dark room
 Coin Block on 3 rotating platforms
 Invisible ? Block containing Snowman doll, before Big Lantern Ghost
 Invisible ? Block at left area's exit, containing a 
Badges:
 Deep Focus in-between two ? Blocks (invisible)
Star Pieces:
 Hidden Floor Panel, south of red Toad
Enemies:
 Shy Guy, Spy Guy, Stilt Guy, Shy Stack, Shy Squad
 Optional Boss Battle: Anti Guy (In Blue Station)
 Boss Battle: Big Lantern Ghost
 Boss Battle: General Guy's Army
---------------------
Like always, walk south of the red Toad, and spin jump for a Star Piece. Heal
and Save at the blocks to the right, and head into the right area.

When you enter here, a Shy Guy runs off and jumps over a huge wall. Use
Bombette to destroy the wall, and watch as how a horde of 'Guys run away. Now
head to the right, and jump around a bit just after the big five to reveal a
hidden ? Block, that you can jump to. Go to the left, and spin jump the box 
to get flung onto the big 5, and use Kooper to retrieve the Shooting Star 
item to the right from the revealed ? Block. Head right, and defeat the Spy
Guy you come across. Hit the ? Block for a Sleepy Sheep, and enter the small 
room.

When you enter here, the horde of Shy Guys come to battle you. Head right, 
and run from them, and yet nothing happens...well this was a waste of time.
Head back to the Station, and let's try our luck in the left area. 

In this area, is like a giant construction of toys. Head left, and jump on 
the box with the flower on it, then the platform thatís rising, to the top of
the wall of blocks. Jump onto the 3 rotating platforms, and hit the block at
the top as fast as you can, for its a Coin Block. Try to fall, and head
off the left path.

Defeat the Pyro Guy,
 and hit the ? Blocks for two coins. Jump in the centre
of these blocks for a Deep Focus Badge (yes I know I wasn't supposed to tell
you that YET, but I really love that badge) Now, head left, and jump on the
block with a flower, then the wall. Head north, and jump on the platform to
the left, ignoring the one to the right, and jump onto ground level. Head in
the room to the left.

In this room, you hear someone talking, as a giant fat and scary looking Shy
Guy reveals himself. Apparently he knows Mario, and wants to battle him.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mini-Boss Battle: Big Lantern Ghost
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

HP: 40
ATK: Flash Attack- 2
     Butt Thwomp- 5
DEF:0

When you first enter this battle, you can neither tattle him or attack him.
Make sure you have Bow throughout the whole battle, for you'll need her. Now,
the ugly ghost, has an annoying power. When his lantern is darkened, he is
untouchable, literally. Attacking the lantern makes it brighter, so, use Bow
against his lantern with 1 smack attack, and it lights up instantaneously!
Keep doing this, and attack him with Mario, and he'll be finished in no time.
His flash attack hits your partner too, dazing it for a while, so be careful.
You can also put him to sleep, so thatís pretty useful.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Once you win, he runs away, leaving behind a talking lantern?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Talk to the talking lantern, and it says its name is Watt, and asks to be set
free. Hammer the lantern, and release a sun-like...thing. Talk to it for a 
while, and it asks to be put on your team. Read Section A about Watt. One of
Watt's abilities is illumination, which brightens up areas, plus you can find
hidden blocks, too! Head out of here after you accept her partnership. 

If you read some before sections, you'd notice I wrote things about invisible
blocks. Head to those area's, and hit them for the item! Once outside, use
Watt to reveal a invisible ? Block, containing a Snowman Doll. Head right, 
and jump on the rising platform, and jump on the big 2 block. Keep going 
right, and jump on another rising platform, and jump to the right to go to a
place with a Super Block. Upgrade Watt here, to make her learn Turbo Charge,
and jump off to the ground.

Head towards the exit, and before you leave, use Watt to reveal a hidden ?
Block containing a Volt Shroom. Exit the area after all that. Head north, and
use Watt again to show a ? Block with a Super Shroom, and head right to the
area we visited before. (Visit other area's to see hidden ? Blocks listed in
the items lists in the previous stations.)

Now that we have Watt, we can finally battle that scary grey Shy Guy, in the
Blue Station, for Watt's electrical attacks can shock it! Go battle it if you
wish, for you get a Power Plus Badge from the chest he guards.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Optional Boss: Anti Guy
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

HP: 50
ATK: Normal- 10
     Show off- 12
DEF:0

This battle turns out to be a shocker. It's hard, and irritatingly annoying.
The basic strategy is to use Power Bounce while Watt paralyzes the Anti-Guy.
Make sure you have lots of Life Shrooms, you'll need them. 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Once you beat him, he leaves his chest, to reveal a Power Plus Badge.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Head back to the room with the Shy Guy horde that screams and chases you, and
use Watt's immense light to scare the Shy Guy's away, creating a hole in the
wall to the right. Enter the room, and a Shy Guy, called the General Guy,
starts talking about guarding the Star Spirit and following Bowser's orders.
Soon enough, he sends out his Shy Guy horde to battle you.

NOTE: Be healed, we're about to enter a very...long...battle. But on the 
bright side, cool music!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mega Boss Battle: General Guy's Army
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

Shy Squad
HP: 15
ATK:1/15
DEF:0

Ok, this turns out to be easy. Unfortunately, if you are horribly low on life,
you're doomed. Basically, 15 Shy Guys = 15 HP = 15 Attack, and so on. This is
a very hard battle, if you don't have good attacks.

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

Stilt Guy
HP: 7
ATK:4
DEF:0

Defeat them like you'd defeat any other enemy. You cannot attack the General
Guy for some reason in this battle, so try your hardest.

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

Shy Stack
HP: 10
ATK:1
DEF:0

Same properties as the Shy Squad, but with two separate targets.

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

General Guy
HP: 30
ATK: Bomb Throw- 4
     Flash Attack- 4/2
DEF:2

Ok, now, his attack is quite high, along with his defense. He has a annoying
Flash Attack, which does what the Lantern Ghost basically did, but with a bit
more power. He also throws a weak bomb, which does about 4 damage. Watt's
Turbo Charge really helps in this battle, due to the high defense of the tank
itself. A good strategy, is to attack the bulb with Parakarry's Shell Shot,
use Watt's Turbo charge to make Mario stronger, and Power Jump on the General
Guy, causing a mass amount of 8 damage! Breaking the bulb, results to him
having to stop using a Flash Attack, so you can use a Stone Cap cheat.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
Quote from me: "I died making this Boss FAQ, you'd better be grateful."
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

After they all run away, collect your next spirit, and congratulations, you 
finished Chapter Four!

**Gourmet Guy's Return [038]************************************************

Today, you see Peach talking to Twink once again. Head into the secret 
passage, which actually automatically activates for once, and out into the 
lobby. Go to the door exactly opposite from where you are, so to the exact 
right of Peach, and then down a door, so that you're to the right of the main
doors. Enter this room. In here, you will once again meet the Gourmet Guy,
from the Toy Box. He says he'd report you to Bowser, but he's really hungry,
and will let you off if you cook for him. Take the Castle Key, and head out
of the room, and enter the lower main doors, so that you end up 1 floor down.
Firstly, head down the stairs, and avoid the guards. Head to your right, and
climb the small staircase into the room to your right. In here, Twink thinks
he heard someone, and obviously, there is someone, for the closet is shaking.
Open it, and free a measly Toad...who enters the closet again. Any who, go to
your right, and open the chest for a Last Stand badge, which you should put
in the chest right away. Head out the door, and go into the door just to your
left, and up north. This ends up being the kitchen, and this is where you 
shall cook for the Gourmet Guy. Once Twink gets a Cookbook, let him read out
the 'Special Strawberry Cake' recipe, as you make it. I set out the steps, 
for your needs.

 Step 1: Put Sugar and Eggs into a bowl. Head north, and take a egg from the
basket under the cooking utensils. Walk two ingredients to the left of the 
eggs, and get sugar from the green box. Put both ingredients into the bowl.
Note: You may only carry one ingredient at a time.
 Step 2: Talk to Twink for the next step, which is to mix and whip the 
ingredients in the bowl. Approach the bowl, and press A as fast as you can, 
if your too slow, you're end result won't come out as good.
 Step 2: Put flour and butter in the bowl. Approach the bag to the left of the
sugar (flour) and put it into the bowl. Approach the last ingredient, or the
rightmost (Not the cleanser) and put the (butter) ingredient into the bowl.
 Step 3: Talk to Twink for next step. Pour ingredients into pan (automatic.)
 Step 4: Bake the batter in the oven for 30 seconds. Make sure you have a 
timer on, because you must get 29, 30, or 31 seconds to make it properly.
 Step 5: Decorate it with cream and strawberries. Firstly, the cream is to 
the left of the Butter, and to the left of the Butter is the strawberries. Put
those in, and make sure you do cream THEN strawberries, or the strawberries
will be under the cream.

After that, talk to Twink, and if he says it doesn't look great, then redo 
all the steps. If he said it looked great, pick the cake up, and exit. You'll
be automatically taken to Gourmet Guy's room, so that's a plus. Give the over
weight Shy Guy the cake, and watch him go crazy again. After he finishes his
episode, he tells you where the next Star Spirit is (Lavalava Island on Mt.
Lavalava) After that, keep rolling through the dialogue until it skips on
to Mario again, as Peach is found by Kammy Koopa...

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

==Toad Town==

Back here, the next Star Spirit, Muskular (which really looks like muscular)
gives Mario yet another Star Power, Chill Out, which lowers attack power of
enemies. Why didn't you give that to us BEFORE the Anti Guy...anyway, skip
through the dialogue, and onto the before-events, after Twink talks to you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Before the next Chapter [039]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Firstly, collect any Star Pieces mentioned throughout the walkthrough, and
take a visit to Merluvlee, only for the Last Chance badge, and some new
Badges from Merlow. After that, go back to Toad Town, and let's start the 
before stuff.

Luigi's Diary
-------------
Yes, he has a diary. It's accessible throughout the game, but I forgot to 
mention it. He writes about the Chapters in his view of himself, and about a
mysterious item called a 'Nintendo 64'...to access it, go to Mario's house,
and enter the back room and spin jump the oddly colored floor boards.

Toad Town Tunnels
-----------------
Amazingly, no places to explore...unless you need upgrading, which you really
shouldn't.

Rowf's Badges
-------------
He has amazing badges up, Group Focus, Spin Smash and way more cool stuff. Be
sure to visit him!

Koopa Koot
--------------
He should get a assistant, oh wait, Mario is the assistant. He has more needs
to tend to, so do them and be rewarded. NOTE: Star Piece is mentioned in the
Koot favors, at Dry Dry Outpost east side (floor panel.)

Tayce T.'s Cooking 
------------------
Well, for this, you must make food for Tayce T., really for the fun of it. 
You never know what would pop up, from cakes to wacky dishes!

The Great Mushroom Kingdom Chain Letter
----------------------------------------
Once again, threes more letters. See your mail for more information. The 
chain will end after Dane T.

Wow, that was great. Ok, now, time to head onto the next Chapter. Firstly, we
know it's on Lavalava Island, and if you look at your Map, Lavalava Island is
obviously the island southwest of Toad Town. It seems it's surrounded by the
ocean, so we need a ride. If you look towards Toad Town, you'll see that the
Port is the closest link we have to the island, so head off to Toad Town 
Port.

==Toad Town Port==
Badges:
 Attack FX D badge, with composers in Club 64.
---------------------
If you make your way to Club 64, and talk to the composer, he asks to perfect
his lyrics. If you haven't done it yet, get the lyrics and search for a 2nd
composer in Dry Dry Outpost...now, if you make your way to the piers, it 
seems Kolorado has bet you here! Talk to him, and it seems that there is a 
treasure hidden on Lavalava Island's volcano, but, he has no way of getting 
there.

The simple way is, a boat, but where do we find a boat. Head out to the piers
and climb aboard the blue 'platform.' Spin jump the platform, and it turns
out to be a whale! Not a boat, but it will do. Kolorado thought it was a 
giant tuna, but on with the story. It seems the whale's stomach is hurting, 
and it wants Mario to help him out. So climb into the whale, and let's see 
what's making it ill.

==Inside the Whale==
Enemies: 
 Fuzzipede
---------------------
Head across the tongue to the ribs, and use Watt's light to brighten things
up. There is a strange creature in here, and it seems to hate light. Once it
starts jumping about, touch it once it comes into contact with you. This 
enemy is actually quite annoying if you have no idea what you are doing. The
only way to defeat it is with Watt, so do that. I think I glitched in this 
battle, for Mario was able to attack. There is no Tattle, so please someone
help me out. 

After you win, the whale geysers you out and has a argument with the Fuzzy
thing, and kindly admires the love of Mario (in a way) and offers to take them
anywhere they want. Once Kolorado suggests Lavalava Island, talk to the 
whale, and off you go!

Chapter Five: Hot Hot Times on Lavalava Island [040]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1) Run-away Yoshi Kids [041]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Ocean Beach==
Items: 
 Stop Watch behind northern bushes
 Four Coins above the twister plants (altogether)
 Coconut/s in trees
 Letter at the top of the rock ledges
 Hearts from Heart Plants
Star Piece:
 In tree, right of the twister plant
---------------------
Once Kolorado storms out to the next area impatiently, head to the north, and
collect the Stop Watch that's barely visible behind the shrubs. Collect a 
coconut from the nearby tree if you wish, and head south. See all of those
plants? Well, they give you hearts, or nothing. Right now they seem innocent,
so collect some hearts. Head left, and jump onto the big purple flower. This
is a twister plant, and when Mario is spinning, if you press Z you are flown
up a short distance to collect items or just get flung to another ledge. Now,
it has 2 coins for grabs, so collect those and head to the next area.

In this area, Kolorado screams for help, probably got his shoe caught in the
sand. Head right, and ignore him getting beaten up by a weird-looking Fuzzy,
and head up the ledges to the north to collect a letter at the top. Now, you
have two choices. One, battle the weird Fuzzy and save Kolorado, or two, keep
walking and let him save himself. Either way, he is saved from the 'Fuzzy'.
My recommendation is to battle it, but I still skipped it in laziness. After 
some walking, he comes running to Mario, if you skipped the battle, and says
to carry on. Head north, and jump on the twister plant to collect 2 coins, 
then walk to the right of the plant and hit the tree for a Star Piece. Head
right to the next area.
(BTW: It's called a Jungle Fuzzy, and will be listed in the enemy list.)

==Yoshi's Village==
 Star Pieces:
Hidden Floor Panel in front of weird looking statue
---------------------
Now, welcome to Yoshi's Village, and to answer your questions, no, we will 
not be having a Yoshi as our next partner. If you want that, buy Paper Mario
and the Thousand Year Door. Head right, and enter the next area. 

Notice all the babies? Anyway, this is like the main area, with a average no
roofed Inn and a Yoshi Cabana/Item Store. Head north, and some of the Yoshi's
talk of a man who ran to the right in desperation. Head to the right area.

==Mt. Lavalava Jungle==
Enemies:
 Spear Guy/Shy Guy
---------------------
When you enter here, you once again hear Kolorado being beaten up by another
random enemy. It turns out to be a Spear Guy, so defeat it. Head right and 
follow Kolorado, and he notices that Mount Lavalava is surrounded by lava and
cannot be accessed at this point. Head left, and ignore Kolorado's fake 
attempt at a scream, to scare Mario. Head left, back into Yoshi Village.

==Yoshi Village==

As you can see, all the adult Yoshi's are scared out of their wits for some
reason. It turns out that the Yoshi kids have run away to the Jade Jungle.
Head north, and enter the area.

==Jade Jungle==
Enemies:
 Hurt Plant, Spear Guy, M. Bush
---------------------
This is where the Heart Plants get nasty. Some Hurt Plants disguise themselves
as Hurt Plants, so that when Mario tries for a free heart, they attack him
instead. The description of them is in the Enemy List for your pleasure. Walk
north, and open up the bushes to the other side. Press A near the light green
bushes, to make a M. Bush appear. Defeat it, and head to the right area.

When you enter, a voice calls out about some little ingrates. Head right, and
across the log, and a voice will call out to Mario. It turns out to be the 
babysitter, Sushie, and she needs some help getting down. Hammer the tree 3
times, and Sushie will land on the floor. Soon enough, she joins your team.
Read section A for more details. For the next few parts we will be making our
way back to Toad Town, for some things we can do now that we have Sushie. Do
this by asking the Whale for a ride back.

==Toad Town Port==
 Enemies: 
  Mini-Boss Battle: Jr. Troopa - Fourth Encounter
---------------------
The first thing you must do is battle Jr. Troopa. He swam all the way from 
Mt. Lavalava trying to find Mario, and back, so give the guy some credit.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mini-Boss Battle: Jr. Troopa - Fourth Encounter
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

HP: 40
ATK:6
DEF:1

From all the swimming he just did, he's as tired as a overweight hamster on a
wheel. Unfortunately, to even things out, he now is a un-hammerable, spike 
headed, charged up annoying little Troopa. He has a spike, so you can't Jump
on him. A good strategy, is to equip the Group Focus, Deep Focus, and Spike
Shield badges. That way, you can make your partner charge for a Star Storm,
while you attack him with your jumping...or just 4 Shell Shots from Parakarry
...whatever suits you best.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Once he becomes 'dead' again, he realizes with his wings, he could have just
flown from Lavalava Island and back, and not wasted any life. So stupid...
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, there is one Super Block. It lies in Toad Town Tunnels, and is pretty
easy to obtain. Note that you must have pretty powerful badges, for you will
be battling the Super Blooper (75 HP) if you are not confident now, go back 
to Lavalava Island and drown in lava. In other words, yes, you have to do 
this part or you won't be able to access the next chapter, which is the plain
truth. Read Section B's Tunnel guide, part 4 "The Super Blooper." If you do
beat it, you get a Warp Pipe from Lavalava Island to Toad Town, which is a 
good thing. You also meet Chet Rippo.

Once you done all that, you can collect some Star Pieces with Sushie, and 
find a new area. Walk to Toad Town, main.

==Toad Town, main==
Star Pieces:
 After riding Sushie through the small bed of water
---------------------
In this area, head south onto the grass, and southwest to the wooden pier. 
Use Sushie to ride along the water, and to the leftmost side lays a Star 
Piece. Re-enter the body of water, and dock in the middle, and enter the Warp
Pipe.

==Toad Town Tunnels, Secret Area==
Items: 
 Super Block to the far right
---------------------
In here, lays a Super Block. We don't need it now, but Iím just making you
aware of it. Head into the Toad Town Tunnels now, but into Area One.

==Toad Town Tunnels, Area 1==

Quickly fall into the hole to 4A, and use Sushie to cross the sewer waters.
Battle the Blooper if you haven't, and enter the Warp Pipe to Lavalava Island
(use the Whale if you aren't confident of the Blooper.)

==Yoshi's Village==
 
Head north, back into Jade Jungle. 

==Jade Jungle, J5==
Items: 
 Coins, in bushes.
Badges:
 Power Quake in red ? Block
Enemies:
 Spear Guy
---------------------
Now, I know I didn't show you before, but here is a map of the Jungle. I like
making maps...so I have another one for you soon enough. The lines on the
small sections represent an island, some islands are linked, forming a log
path. The water is marked with a 'w', so that means everything else is land. 
Places where there is a pier is marked with a '~', so keep an eye out for 
those. The letters 'YK' mean Yoshi Kid, and...that's it. Note that you can
dive UNDER log paths with Sushie's diving ability.

Basically for now we will be heading into the water via the pier to the north
parts of the land. Head right from the M. Bush, and use Sushie to board the
centre island where a Power Quake badge is. Ignore the annoying whistle sound
from the sleeping Yoshi Kid, and head right into J7.

==Jade Jungle, J7==
Items:
 Yellow Seed from Bub-ulb (Not yet though)
 Letter in tree where Star Piece is
Star Pieces:
 On secluded northeast island
---------------------
Head right, across the two logs, past where Sushie was stuck, and board the
pier onto the water. Dive under the log to the north, and board at the island
to the top right for a Star Piece. Hit the tree here for a Letter, too. Head 
right to the opposite island to find the Yellow Bub-ulb, unfortunately it's
seed isn't ready yet, for if it was it would ruin the whole idea of the next
Chapter not being accessible yet...so head back to J6.

==Jade Jungle, J6==

Nothing here for now, head left and enter the waters, and head left under the
log to J5.

==Jade Jungle, J5==
Items:
 3 Underwater coins 
 Super Block on southeast island
Enemies:
 Spear Guy, Hurt Plant, M. Bush
---------------------
What, is this about the 3rd Super Block we've found that is totally useless
now? How many partners do we have? Any who, head across the water under the 
log, and collect the three coins in the water using Sushie. Head south, and 
board the pier. Head left, and you'll hear a sort of sneezing sound. Walk
north, and open the bushes. Shake the M. Bush, and defeat it, then shake the
bush above the path to reveal a Yoshi Kid. Once it leaves to home, access
the Ocean Beach path, which was accessible the entire time! We are so blind..
well, you are. Head into the waters, and depart at the other pier. 
  Defeat the Spear Guy, and head south to a Super Block. Once again, if you
  can use this to upgrade somebody, you haven't been following my guide
  properly.
Head north, then left, and then north again, to the next area, J2.

==Jade Jungle, J2==
Items:
 Fright Jar near tree guarded by M. Bushes
 Coin above snapper plant
Enemies:
 Spear Guy ( [sometimes] accompanied with Jungle Fuzzies), M. Bush
---------------------
I'd rather you don't get that nearby coin, for you lose a life for trying. 
Head north of the snapper plant (where the one coin is floating) and open the
bushes up. Defeat the M. Bushes if wanted, and hit the tree they're guarding
for a Fright Jar, our first actual item for Jade Jungle! Board the pier, surf
left, and get off at the other nearby pier. Head to the twister plant, and 
use it to get to the upper level of the small island. Defeat the Spear Guy, 
and open up the bushes to a Warp Pipe. Enter it.

--Small Cave--

In here, ignore the boulder, for that's useless for now. Head right, and 
climb the ledges to a crying Yoshi. He's complaining about the darkness, so
use Watt to calm him down. Once he leaves, head outside, and use the pier to
enter the left area, J1.

==Jade Jungle, J1==
Star Pieces:
 Underwater, under the fallen log
Enemies:
 Jungle Fuzzy
---------------------
This won't take long, so listen up. Head past the pier, and dive underwater
to retrieve the Star Piece. Board the pier, and hammer the small trunk and
it flings up, and snaps in half, creating a path across the water. Don't hit
the tree to the left of the crying Yoshi, unless you like Jungle Fuzzies. 
Talk to the Yoshi, and let it go home, then head back to J2, and head to the
far right, and enter the next area.

==Jade Jungle, J3==
Items:
 Underwater coin
Enemies:
 Hurt Plant, Spear Guy, Jungle Fuzzy
---------------------
Change of scenery...hmm...suspicious. Head right, and ignore the disguised
Hurt Plant. Head across the log, and defeat the Spear Guy, then hammer the
trunk to make another path. Once again, that thing IS a Hurt Plant, so ignore
it. Head south, and board the pier, and depart from the extremely close pier
southwest of where you are, then enter J6.

==Jade Jungle, J6==
Enemies: 
 Jungle Fuzzy
---------------------
Once you enter, you hear a snoozing sound. Don't hit the tree to the right,
for it contains a Jungle Fuzzy. Head left, and hit the tree to make the Yoshi
Kid tumble down and wake up. Head South, and create a path from the island
to the southwest to the southeast by hammering the trunk. Head back to J3.

==Jade Jungle, J3==
Enemies:
 Jungle Fuzzy, Hurt Plant, Spear Guy
---------------------
Head onto the pier, and to the other close-by pier, and enter the area to the
right.

==Jade Jungle, J4==
Enemies:
 Putrid Piranha
---------------------
When you enter the area, a Yoshi Kid is being attacked by oversized Piranha
Plants! Head towards them, and they'll approach Mario for a battle. Defeat 
them, and save the Yoshi Kid! Once some cool music plays for about 3/4 of a
second, head all the way back to Yoshi's Village.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2) Path to the Volcano [042]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Yoshi's Village==
Items:
 Jade Raven from leader
---------------------
Head to the circular beach area to the left, and talk to the Yoshi Leader
at the centre island, via the bridges. He thanks Mario for finding all the
Yoshi Kids, and gives Mario a Jade Raven, which is the perfect way to get to
Mt. Lavalava. Head back to the right area, and go to Jade Jungle again.

==Jade Jungle, J6==
Enemies:
 Spear Guy, Hurt Plant
---------------------
When you enter here, straight away head across the fallen log to the left,
and north then northeast to J3.

==Jade Jungle, J3==
Enemies:
 Spear Guy, Hurt Plant, Jungle Fuzzy
---------------------
Have Sushie out, and enter the water. Dive under the fallen log to the north,
and board the pier to the north. Place the Jade Raven in the slot under the
giant Raven statue, and watch as it magically moves to the left, revealing a
secret path.

==Jade Jungle, Secret Path==
Items:
 Mushroom is tree with vine
 Volt Shroom in Invisible ? Block in 'puzzle' area
 Stone Cap in Invisible ? Block where the Spear Guy is
Star Pieces:
 Hidden Floor Panel, to the right of the Heart Plants
Enemies: 
 Spear Guy, Putrid Piranhas, W Magikoopa
---------------------
Head to the right, and defeat the pacing Spear Guy. Head northeast of where
it was, and move the bushes to reveal another path. Enter it, and you'll come
into a puzzle area...sort of. All you must do is cover up the holes letting
out the geyser of water, to make the boulder blocking the next path fly away.
Once you've done that, remove the block from the last covered hole, and head
through the next area. Don't forget the ? Block (invisible.) which contains
a Volt Shroom. Use the blocks to reach it.

Head to the far right, and approach the two trees with vines hanging out from
them. On the southeast tree, jump under the vine to pull it down, so that a 
Mushroom falls out. Head to the tree northwest of that tree, and jump on its
vine to reveal another path. Head back to the right before you enter it, and
use Watt to uncover a Invisible ? Block on the small upper ledge.

In this area, the two Heart Plants do contain hearts, so use them, because
we need as much life as we can get. Spin jump to the right of the plants to
reveal a floor panel, with a star piece, and head more to the right and enter
combat with the Putrid Piranhas blocking the next area. Note that they also
had a W Magikoopa in their group, so look at the enemy section for more 
details about that. The items they drop are extravagant too, so if you have
Money Money, Heart Finder or Flower Finder badges, now's the time to equip 
them.

==Rafael Raven's Tree==
Badges:
 Happy Heart, outside tree's trunk
---------------------
In the next area, you find yourself at a giant tree? Well, it sure does 
remind you of the Boggly Woods tree in the 2nd Paper Mario game, but anyway..
head into the tree, and Save. Now, for the vast climb. Keep jumping to the 
nearly top, and exit. Head around the trunk on the branch, and don't stop
until you come across a Happy Heart Badge. Head back, and enter the tree,
again. Start climbing again, and exit at the other door. In here, is a giant
Raven, in a nest, might I add. His name is Raphael the Raven, and he is to
help Mario get to Mt. Lavalava. Once he calls on his Raven companions, he
starts talking to them, only to fall about 75 stories. Follow him down, then
talk to him so that he raises the tree's giant roots, to form another path.

==Mt. Lavalava entrance==

Take the path, and follow Rafael and his little Ravens to the right, and talk
to them. Once the Ravens start being constructive, Kolorado comes out of thin
air. I thought we got rid of him (I wanted that treasure to myself)! The 
little Ravens, actually made a lift, and once Kolorado takes it, Rafael gives
Mario an Ultra Stone, before leaving. The Ultra Stone gives Mario the right 
to upgrade his partners to Ultra Rank, raising their attack and move list by
one! Head to the previous Jade Jungle Super Block, and the Toad Town mains 
Block in the Warp Pipe in the centre of the body of water, and upgrade two
partners to their most powerful level. I recommend Sushie, because we need 
her extremely powerful Tidal Wave (water based) attack, and Parakarry, for 
his incredibly powerful Air Raid attack.

Once you upgrade them, head back to the lift, and go up to the tree. Head 
past the Raven, and across to the 'flying fox' is what I call them. Jump onto
the string, and head down to the volcanoes entrance. Heal, and enter the 
Volcano.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
3) The Great Mt. Lavlava Treasure [043]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Mt. Lavlava==
Items:
 POW Block on Brick Block in 3rd area
 Four Coins in Four ? Blocks.
 Super Block after path of revolving fires
 Super Block on high flat rock
 Life Shroom in Invisible ? Block
 Ultra Hammer in big chest
 Maple Syrup in ? Block near final area
 Super Shroom in ? Block near final area
Badges:
 Fire Shield on high ledge under flying fox
 Dizzy Stomp in chest after Metallic Block one area before Ultra Hammer
Star Pieces:
 Star Piece in area with the high flat rock where the Super Block is
 Star Piece near final area, where the Heal Block is, hidden panel
Enemies:
 Lava Bubble, Spike Top, W Magikoopa, R Magikoopa, Putrid Piranha
 Boss Battle: Lava Piranha & Lava Bud
---------------------
Please NOTE: Have at least two Stone Caps, because, well, you'll need them.

It's a Volcano, so don't be surprised by the amounts of treasure. Head down
the smoky corridor, and a Piranha Plant will come out, and alert it's boss
about Mario being inside the Volcano. Enter the next room.

Kolorado, being the greedy man he his, has bet us here, and he says he senses
danger. After he gives an example about what happens when we star on the 
platforms on the lava, head across the platforms QUICKLY and defeat the new 
enemy, the Lava Bubble. Note that Sushieís water attacks do +2 damage, so keep
that in mind. Continue jumping platforms until you get to the next room.

Jump onto the flying fox, and get off at the end. Climb the Brick Block, and
use Kooper to destroy the POW Block on the Brick Block so you can get it.
Defeat the two Spike Tops, and collect 1 coin from each of the ? Blocks.
Walk left, and jump on the string, to the flying fox, and enter the room to
the bottom right hand corner.

In here, head past all the revolving fires, and constantly jump over one of 
them for some coins, and find a Super Block at the end of the path. Upgrade
a partner (Recommended: Watt, for his Power Shock attack.) Head back to the
previous area, and south of the spring, and down all the steps to the right.
Save at the block, and use the flying fox again down to the lower levels. 
When you're on the way down, by the way, you'll see a small glimpse of a Badge
on a high ledge, so when you see that, quickly press A to let go of the rope
so you can collect it, and it's a Fire Shield badge, which reduces fire
damage by one.

Note that if you've followed my walkthrough, you'll notice that you have both
a Fire Shield and Ice Power badge, a great combo, for Mt. Lavalava. Head to 
the left, into the next area.

In here, use Watt straight away to uncover a Invisible ? Block containing a 
Life Shroom, and head left from the block. Use Parakarry to get across the
lava river, and push the blue blocks to create a path so that you can get
across easier. It also stops most lava flow, so head right, south, then left
to the lower path, and use Parkarry across the lava river. Enter the next 
area.

As you can see, there is yet another giant chest, so it's either Ultra Boots,
or an Ultra Hammer. It is a Ultra Hammer, because all the Metal Blocks gave 
it away. Push two of the Blue Blocks into the river, and head across the rest
with Parakarry's ability. Defeat the Lava Bubbles here, and their R/W
Magikoopa partners, then climb the ledges to the north until you can get to
the chest, which contains a ULTRA HAMMER! Yes, this nifty trinket allows 
Mario to smash Metal Blocks, and it +1's his Hammer ability damage ratio!
Smash the Metallic Block to the right, and head out of this area.

In this area again, use Parkarry across the lava, and this time take the 
lower staircase, to a Mettalic Block. Smash it, and enter the area. Head
across more lava with Parakarry, and defeat the Putrid Piranha. Climb the
ledges, and get the Dizzy Stomp badge. Head back an area, and take the higher
stairs and exit the area.

Head to the right, and defeat the Spike Tops, and Putrid Piranhas, then jump
onto the spring to the other spring to where the Save Block was. Hit the 
Metal Block, and let Kolorado go in. 

Enter the area, and watch as Kolorado foolishly steps out of the edge, only
to plummet to his near death. Ride the flying fox, and press A when Mario is
in the rays of the light, on the wall, and he'll fall onto a ledge with a
Super Block. Upgrade (Bow) a partner, and jump off to the right. Spin jump
to reveal a hidden floor panel, then head left and defeat the Putrid Piranha
and the Spike Top. Head out the area, back to the spring, to the other spring
and then back to this area, then ride the flying fox, but don't let go!

BEFORE YOU GO TO THE NEXT AREA: Make Bow your active partner, HEAR ME?

In this area, head to the right just a little bit, and a giant rolling spike
ball Thwomp thing comes rolling down to damage Mario. Use Bow to evade it,
and head to the next area. (I shall call it, the Spike ball Thwomp!)

Head across the moving platforms, and destroy the rotating fire. Defeat the
Lava Bubble, and head more to the right, defeating everything in your way. 
Jump onto the moving platform to the right, and jump off onto ground, and 
then into the next area.

In here, defeat the Spike Top and Putrid Piranha, then head right across the
narrow path, to a blue block. Once Kolorado obviously makes a statement that
we are close, push the block all the way to the left, and climb onto the 
steps. Smash every Metal Block you see, and let the giant Spike ball Thwomp 
roll all the way across the narrow path, destroying a extremely obvious rock
blocking a secret path. Head across the path to the new area, ignoring the
somewhat dead Kolorado.

Head right, and listen to Kolorado, stating that the treasure is this way. 
Follow him into that area, and hit the two ? Blocks for a Maple Syrup and a
Super Shroom. Head back an area, and Spin Jump to reveal a panel with a Star
Piece. Head down the stairs, and save, then all the way to the right. After a
while, a Putrid Piranha will alert the boss again of Mario's location. Head
right into another area.

This is a Boss area, so I recommend that you equip the following badges:
 Fire Shield   - To shield Mario against ?'s fire
 Ice Power     - To power up Mario's attacks against ?
 All or Nothing- To +1 on Mario's action commands
 Power Bounce  - For multiple butt-whopping
 Group Focus   - So Star Storm is accessible at all times
 Damage Dodge  - To -1 on Mario's damage counter

Note that this adds up to 15 BP, so if you don't have enough, Iíll reconsider
the All or Nothing badge. Also, have Sushie, because she's the BEST at this 
boss.

Head right, and soon enough you'll approach a lava pool. When you're close 
enough, a giant Piranha will emerge from the depths of the lava. Once it 
makes its short speech, battle the fearsome, Lava Piranha!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle: Lava Piranha & Lava Bud
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Lava Piranha        Lava Bud
HP: 40              HP: 8
ATK: Lava Fire- 5   ATK: Bud Fire- 4
DEF:0               DEF:0

Well, this boss seems not one ounce terrifying! All you must do, is use 
Sushie to deal with the two Lava Buds and some HP from the Lava Piranha, then
use Mario's Power Bounce, letting the Ice Power badge take in affect. Each
part of the enemy attacks separately, so the order is usually Bud, Bud, Lava
Piranha, leading to a top of 11 damage. If you equipped Damage Dodge like I
told you to, and Fire Shield, that damage plummets to a mere low of 7. When
you defeat either Lava Bud, they crinkle into dead plants, but soon enough
come back. The main root, or Lava Piranha, is the only way to win.

Well, they are fire charged, so they seem stronger. In this battle, you must
defeat 5 enemies on one field at a time, usually, and win. Stone Caps are
great here, for the attacks will add up to 18 if you don't block properly. 
Petit Piranhas will come from Lava Buds, which have no power in this battle.
The reason is that the Petit Piranhas do all the work, with a extra 2 damage
points than the Lava Buds original attack. Chill Out, works wonders here, and
Tidal Wave from Sushie. If you use Chill Out, with the aid of the Fire Shield
and Damage Dodge badges, the Lava Piranhas attack becomes a measly 1. Star
Storm is a must here, and Life Shrooms are the way to go. I used a spare 
Repel Gel in this battle, so you can use that too. 

Fortunately, for you, the Lava Piranha has one fatal weakness. It's fire. Once
you use a Tidal Wave attack, it automatically shuts down for a short period
of time, allowing you to attack with the aid of the Ice Power badge. Lullaby
will also work, so you can use your Star Power to heal yourself.

If you win, so god may hope so, Kolorado runs off, wanting the treasure even
more.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once he runs off, the Star Spirit, will come from the lava, allowing you to
finally finish Chapter 5 for good...but, hey! What's the matter with the 
Volcano? It MUST BE ERUPTING! Quickly follow the unidentified Star Spirit, 
and climb the stairs. Blow up the wall with Bombette once instructed to, and
enter the area.

Climb the stairs quickly, before hitting the lava, or hit the lava for a 
shortcut if you have 1^ HP. At the top, Kolorado finally found the treasure,
but it's on a high pillar, and he can't get it. The Star Spirit will then
get Mario and Kolorado, and fly out of the Volcano, as the treasure lands in
Jade Jungle...

**Trivia Quiz-Off!! [044]****************************************************

Once again, in another Peach scene, Twink and Peach decide to try for another
searching of the castle. Walk into the fireplace via the passageway, and exit
Bowserís quarters. Head down one floor, and enter the door northwest of the 
bottom of the stairs. In here, a Koopatrol catches Peach, and suggests taking
her back, but a Hammer Bro. talks to Koopatrol, and says "She'd be idea, and
we need a third person..." After he talks, he directs her, to the Trivia Quiz
-Off game show! With the host, Mr. Hammer, he asks 10 questions, and press A

That was a coincidence. If you did win, you'll receive a Jammin' Jelly, and a
Sneaky Parasol. That Parasol allows Peach to become whoever she wants by
pressing B, but Bowser ruins our fun by storming in...

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

==Mt. Lavalava entrance==

Once you head down, the new Star Spirit talks a bit, and Kolorado stays as 
sad as ever. The new Spirit's name, is Misstar, and she allows Mario to use a
healing Power, called Smooch, which heals 20 HP! Watch Kolorado walk away, 
and head all the way to the left back to Yoshi's Village.

==Yoshi's Village==

Head left, and north of Kolorado to Jade Jungle.

==Jade Jungle==
Items:
 Volcano Vase near tree where Sushie was stuck
---------------------
Head north through the bushes, and head right an area. Walk towards where you
found Sushie stuck in the tree, and open the supposed Mt. Lavalava chest for,
a Volcano Vase? Head left, then south to Yoshi's Village again.

==Yoshi's Village==
Items:
 Brown Seed from Kolorado
---------------------
Walk south, and talk to Kolorado. He praised Mario for finding the vase, and
soon enough gives Mario a Brown Seed. Head two area's left, and board the 
whale to Toad Town. (DO NOT TAKE THE WARP PIPE, we need Kolorado to come with)

==Toad Town Port==

Head north, after Kolorado heads back home in Koopa Village, and head to the
other parts of Toad Town.

*=Must Do

*Toad Town Tunnels
------------------
It's not exactly a must do situation, but it's good if you want stronger 
partners. Head to the appropriate area, and activate it. (I recommend the
partner, Kooper for this.

Rowf's Badges
--------------
Yes he has more. If you've been buying his Badges, every time you finish a 
Chapter, he has even better ones today.

Koopa Koot
------------
God, this man doesn't stop wanting to be needy!

That's one of our shortest ones yet. Once you've finished anything else that
you want to do, head to Toad Town east.

==Toad Town, east==

Head to the right, and talk to the Gardening Toad. She says that the Flower
Fields are in great danger, and that she needs seeds to get to the Flower 
Fields via the Flower Gate. Give her the four seeds you have gotten 
throughout the adventure...

  Pink Seed with Bub-ulb in Toad Town
  Blue Seed with Bub-ulb in Forever Forest
  Violet Seed with Bub-ulb on Mt. Rugged 
  Yellow Seed with Bub-ulb on Lavalava Island with Kolorado

...and watch as the magical Flower Gate reveals itself, allowing you to go to
Flower Fields!

When you enter, the first thing you realize is the whacked out, weird looking
scenery, and the talking tree? His name is Wise Wisterwood, and he's the
oldest tree in Flower Fields. He talks of a evil cloud called Huff N. Puff,
and how they took over Flower Fields sunny skies. He says that Mario must
defeat it, and the only way is with a Magical Bean. He says to find a flower
named Petunia, and she lives to the east. 

Now, this place, it is made up of the 6 cardinal points, not including North
and South. Each point has it's own mystery, but we must visit everything in
order if you want to progress. Head to the left, and talk to the big mouthed
orange plant. This is what I call the liar flower. She tells Mario the wrong
information...in a way. All of her information is oppositised. Here's a list
of what she says, but what she really means.

1.Petunia is to the west.
 -Petunia is to the east.

2.Hit a group of trees left, right, then middle for a great gift.
 -Hit a group of trees middle, right, then left for a great gift.

3.Throw a item into a well for a great reward, but don't throw a Blue Berry.
 -Throw a item into a well for a great reward, but only a Blue Berry.

That's about it, so head to the East Cardinal area.

==East Cardinal Flower Fields==
Badges:
 Happy Flower in the left tree, after hitting them in order
Enemies:
 Crazee Dayzee
---------------------
Once you enter, you'd notice the flowers running around. These are Crazee 
Dayzees, and they have one of the most annoying attacks, that I call hurtful
lullaby, which makes you sleep but at the same time you take damage. Very
annoying. Walk right, and ignore the first tree, for it contains a Bzzap!. 
More to the right is a Bzzap! once again, so defeat that, and notice the 
three trees? Maybe this was what that flower was talking about. Hit the trees
in the order: middle, right then left, and a Happy Flower badge will come 
down from the left tree. Defeat the Crazee Dayzee to the right, and enter the
next area.

==Petunia's Garden==
Items:
 Red Berries in tree
Enemies:
 Green Monty Mole, Crazee Dayzee?
---------------------
Notice the change of music? Talk to the purple petalled flower to the right,
and she asks Mario to dispose of the Monty Moles. They are green, and are
a new breed, so I named them the Green Mole. Type that in the search box for
it's information. After you defeat them all, talk to Petunia. She is so 
grateful, she gives Mario a Magical Bean! After that, she tells you not to
plant it with, let's say, fertile soil and Miracle Water. She doesn't like 
her seeds to grow basically, for they cannot move after they grow. Before you
leave, where the Crazee Dayzee is hiding, hit the tree, for a Red Berry. Yes,
we need this. Head all the way back to Centre Flower Fields.

==Centre Flower Fields==

Head to the left, and talk to the Liar Flower again. She has some more info
about the Fields, so here it is.

1. The Posie only has soil, and nothing beautiful.
  -The Posie has something more beautiful other than soil.

Well, that sure does sound strange. Head south of that Flower, to the 
Southeast Cardinal Flower Fields.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2) Fertile Soils [048]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Southwest Cardinal Flower Fields==
Items:
 Stinky Herb on wall flowers
 Yellow Berry in tree
Star Pieces:
 South of tree
Enemies:
 Ruff Puff, Bzzap!,
---------------------
Remember that Red Berry we got before, well, that flower guarding the gate,
would sure love one! Once that gate opens, defeat the Bzzap!, which is
sometimes accompanied by a new enemy, called the Ruff Puff. Head right, and
stand near the wall flower for a Stinky Herb, then defeat the Ruff Puff to
the left. Hit the tree for a Yellow Berry, and Spin Jump to the south of the
tree for a Star Piece, then head to the next area.

==Posie's Garden==

Head to the left of this wonderful bridge, and talk to the yellow flower 
in front of the magnificent tree. Her name is Posie, and she calls that tree,
the Crystal Tree. After Mario rudely compliments her strange mouth, and she
'compliments' his nose, she gives Mario the Fertile Soil almost instantly.
Hmm, that was quick. Head back to the central fields.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
3) Miracle Waters [049]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Centre Flower Fields==

Save, and then head to the southeast corner.

==Southeast Cardinal Flower Fields==
Items:
 Stinky Herb in wall flowers
 Dizzy Dial in ? Block
 Maple Syrup in invisible ? Block
Star Pieces:
 Hidden Floor Panel, leftmost part of the area
 In the flowers to the right of the Amazy Dayzee location
Enemies:
 Crazee Dayzee, Amazy Dayzee, Bzzap!
---------------------
Talk to the yellow flower, and give her your Yellow Berry. Head through the
gate, and use Parakarry to get across the pit of thorns, from platform to
platform. Head north, and see that small batch of flowers, with the Crazee
Dayzee? Sometimes, those two Crazee Dayzees may be accompanied by a Amazy 
Dayzee, a enemy which gives off about 40 Star Points per win. It sounds easy,
but the Amazy Dayzee has 20 HP, with a attack of 20 to match it.

The easiest way to defeat it is by a two turn kill. Equip the Dizzy Spin,
Power Jump, All or Nothing and Power Plus badges, and use Parakarry, to 
defeat it. Look at Section B for a better insight. I achieved level 27 (the
maximum level of this game) by battling these things, with my strategy.


Head to the left, up the stairs, and defeat all the Crazee Dayzees that are
in your way so that you can get to the Super Block. Upgrade a partner 
(Bombette), and head all the way to the right, hit the nearby tree for a Blue
Berry, and collect the hard to see Star Piece hidden in the flowers to the
right of the tree. Head into the next area. (Get two Blue Berries, you'll see
why soon)

Hit the nearby ? Block for a Dizzy Dial, and head down the stairs, and across
the path, and up some stairs. Head north, and Spin Jump for a Star Piece, 
then use Watt to find a ? Block containing a Maple Syrup. Head to the next
area.

==Lily's Spring==

Head down the stairs, and talk to the pink flower. She's having a crisis, for
the cloud people took her water stone, so her water is gone, and she's going
to wither and die soon. She asks Mario to find her water stone, so we will
be going for a treasure hunt. Head all the way back to Centre Flower Fields.

==Centre Flower Fields==

Now, remember that well the Liar Flower was talking about? Head to East 
Cardinal Flower Fields...

==East Cardinal Flower Fields==

...And head all the way to Petunia's Garden again.

==Petunia's Garden==
Star Piece:
 Hidden Floor Panel left of Petunia
---------------------
While you're here, get the Star Piece I missed before, and head once more 
area to the right (forgot to mention that area before.)

==Dead Man's Well==
Badges:
 Flower Saver from mysterious stranger in well
---------------------
Firstly, you'll here a sniffle from a distance. Head right, and press A at
the well. Throw down 1 of the 2 Blue Berries you got, and watch as you get a
Flower Saver badge in return! Head back to the centre, then take the West
Cardinal area.

==West Cardinal Flower Fields==
Items:
 Coin in invisible ? Block
 Shooting Star in invisible ? Block above Brick Block
Enemies:
 Spiny
---------------------
Give you're remaining Blue Berry to the Blue Flower, so she opens the gate.
Head right, and defeat the new Spiny enemy. Use Watt to reveal a hidden ?
Block, containing a Coin, then use the spring to jump onto that block. Jump
onto the Brick Block, and jump again to get a Shooting Star item. Defeat the
Spiny to the left, and then enter the next area.

==Garden Maze==
Items:
 Coin Block before left exit
Enemies:
 Lakitu, Spiny
---------------------
When you enter here, two Lakitus are trying to find the lost Water Stone. 
Once they see Mario, they automatically enter combat. Defeat them, and now,
it's time to progress through this maze. Mapping it was too hard, so Iím just
going to guide you. Basically, we have to get to the centre. 

The maze is divided into hedge squares, so try to understand me. Head left 
two squares, north until you come across a high hedge where you can't see 
Mario, all the way left, all the way north, then left two squares, then 
south. until you come across another high hedge, then you go right, north two
squares, then left into the centre. Enter the Warp Pipe here, to the other 
side. Before you leave the maze, head through the hedges to a Coin Block, 
then head left an area. If you understood none of that, then try going 
through on your own.

==Rosie's Garden==

In here, is a selfish rose, named, Rosie. She claims to be the most beautiful
thing that had ever been born. Answer her question respectfully, then let her
show you the Water Stone she found the other day. Mario starts complaining
about how Lily may die, but then Rosie says that she thinks she's prettier
than she. After some insults, she says, until Mario finds something even
prettier than the stone, then she will hand it over. Go to Posie, and she has
something even prettier (remember what the Liar Flower said?) which is the
Crystal Berry, then give it to Rosie for the Water Stone. Then, head all the
way back to Lily.

==Lily's Spring==

NOTE: At this point of the game, I highly recommend that you get to level 27,
for the upcoming enemies are monstrous.

Talk to Lily, and she tells you to put the Stone in the small hole, so do so.
Once a geyser of water comes up and water fills the spring, Lily says that 
it can make any plant grow...but, because of the lack of sunshine, it won't
work. So, she suggests to go talk to the Sun!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
4) Quest of the Clouds [050]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Head one area to the left, and use Sushie at the pier. Get off at the pier
near the very blue looking tree, and hammer it for a Bubble Berry. Head all
the way back to the centre, then walk to Northwest Cardinal Flower Fields.
(The top left-hand corner)

==Northwest Cardinal Flower Fields==
Items:
 Shooting Star hidden behind flowers
Badges:
 Mega Smash under high stair case
Star Pieces:
 After the Log, on the upper area
Enemies:
 Bzzap!, GRN Magikoopa, Lakitu, Spiny
---------------------
Talk to the weird blue plant, who's name is Bubble Plant, and give it your
Bubble Berry. Once it creates a giant bubble, hop into it, and get carried to
the other side of the thorns. Head up the stairs, and through the log to the
Star Piece. Head back, and defeat the Bzzap!, who is sometimes accompanied
by a GRN Magikoopa, then through the log, to the next area.

Avoid the Lakitu, for it's too high to battle, and climb the vast amount of
stairs. Use Bombette to blow up the rock in the flower patch, and enter the
hidden hole, to obtain a Mega Smash badge. Head southeast, and collect the
Shooting Star hidden behind some flowers, then left avoiding another Lakitu
to the next area.

==Sun's Keep==

Notice the Mexican style music? This is the Sun's Keep, and we need to get to
the top of that tower. Head past the stairs, not climbing them, and go 
through the passage to the right of the wall. Use Bombette on the grey rock,
so that the stairs fall down, and go back to climb them. Once you reach the
top, talk to the Sun. He says that he 'was' the sun, only because the Puff
Puff Machine blocked his way to the sky. He also said it is to the east of
this area. Head down the stairs, back and area, and halfway through that 
area, you'll be stopped by Lakilester...or Michael...or Spike. Whatever his
name is, he challenges Mario. Defeat him like you would an ordinary Lakitu,
but a bit harder...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mini-Boss Battle: Spike?
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

HP: 50
ATK: Spiny Throw- 4
DEF:0

This, is really a partner battle. "Spike" is your final partner, but why is 
he battling us? Well, he has 50 HP, so he's no ordinary Lakitu. A good way
to defeat him is to treat him like an ordinary Lakitu, but I did this battle
with a few Super Smash Charges, a Hammer Throw and a whole lot of Smacking.
Always use Bow, because I think she relates to this enemy.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Once you win, Spikes girlfriend, Lakilulu, if that IS her real name, comes
flying down...
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once Lakilulu comes down, we finally learn his real name, Lakilester. Soon
enough after some dialogue, you are given a 4 part answer question, which
will lead to Lakilester becoming your partner no matter what, really, either
way. His ability, is what I call the Taxi, and he let's you ride him over 
places you couldn't originally go. Hop onto him, and ride him all the way
back to the centre, over the thorns.

==Centre Flower Fields==

From the northwest fields, opposite are the northeast fields, so go there now.

==Northeast Cardinal Flower Fields==
Items:
 Super Block on high level
 Letter being orange flowers after first log
 Thunder Rage in Invisible ? Block, before eastern exit
Star Pieces:
 In small tunnel, Spin Jump above it
Enemies:
 Ruff Puff, Y Magikoopa, Lakitu, Spiny
---------------------
This is a puzzlish area. Use Lakitu to head onto the thorns, and you must 
Spin Jump the ! Blocks to raise and lower the other same color ones to get 
to the top. Here is a quick way to do it.


   --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- ---------
   -       - -       - -       - -       - -       - -       - -       -
   -  R!B  - -  G!B  - -  R!B  - -  G!B  - -  P!B  - -  G!B  - -  P!B  -   
   -       - -       - -       - -       - -       - -       - -       -
   --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- ---------
       3         4                             2        1/5        6

Hit the ! Blocks in order, from 1-6, and climb to the upper grounds. Defeat 
the Ruff Puff's, accompanied with the Y Magikoopas, and head through the 
small tunnel to the right of the caged one. Walk to the left, into the wall,
and you'll end up in the middle tunnel. Jump on the spring, and head left
to upgrade a partner (Lakilester.) Use Parakarry to cross the gap in the 
flowers to the right, and then Spin Jump above the small tunnel with nothing
in it to make a Star Piece fall in. Get it, and head to the next area.

Now, we can do this area, in two ways:
 Head through the logs and paths, having to battle all Spinies from Lakitus.
OR
 Use Lakilester to head straight through all the thorns under the logs to the
 other side.

But, just remember to get the letter after the first log, behind the orange
flowers, and the Invisible ? Block before the eastern exit.

Choice one, is for people who did NOT level up to 27 from the Amazy Dayzee,
and choice two, if for people who did. Either way, head to the next area,
following the paths.

Now, this is where the Puff Puff Machine is. Basically, you must destroy it.
Either one of the following two options will lead to a battle:
 Hammer the machine until the Y Magikoopa notices who you are.
 Talk to the Lakitu to the right of the Y Magikoopa.

The idea of three Lakitus an a Y Magikoopa does seem laughable, but the Y
Magikoopa can electrically charge the Lakitus while they summon Spinies...
smart, aye? Once you win, hammer each side of the machine, then another time
to destroy it. After that, the Sun realizes that the clouds are gone, and he
can finally rise to the sky! Lily's Pond forms a rainbow...Rosie still acts
snobby, and Petunia stops complaining about being stuck in one place. Now, it's
time to deal with Huff N. Puff. Head to the centre.

==Centre Flower Fields==

Head to Wise Wisterwood, so that Mario can get the idea of planting the bean,
and head to the dirt patch to the south. Plant the soil, then the bean, then
the water, and a giant spiral, paper-like beanstalk grows to the clouds! 
Jump onto the big leaf in front of you, and watch as it twists like an 
elevator, to the clouds themselves.

==Cloudy Climb==
Badges:
 S. Jump Chg. on cloud
---------------------
Head northwest, and wait for the cloud to come down. Jump onto it, and wait
for it to go up, then jump to the other cloud for a S. Jump Chg. Badge! Jump
off, and head to the next area (to the right.) Before you do that though, I
will recommend some badges quickly.

 For those on level 27:
  S. Jump Chg.     Quick Change   Damage Dodge   Pretty Lucky
  Power Jump       Group Focus    Damage Dodge  
  Dodge Master     Power Plus     All or Nothing   (All up: 30 BP)

 For those lower than that:
  S. Jump Chg.   Damage Dodge
  Power Jump     All or Nothing
  Quick Change   Pretty Lucky     (All up: 16 BP [equip some from other list
                                                  if possible]

And, read the Toad Town Tunnels section for how to get the Super Boots (they
are now obtainable.)

After all those preparations (yes, they were necessary) head to the area to
the right.

Make Lakilester your partner for this battle, and head right up the cloud
steps, until you come to a ugly brown looking cloud. Touch it, and listen to
its annoying plot to turn Flower Fields into a cloud infested "haven". Keep
rolling through the dialogue until he battles you. (He looks adorable for an
evil villain, donít think?)

NOTE: PLEASE do NOT make the same mistake that I did, of not healing before
battling this cloud, and ending up with 1 FP at the start...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle: Huff N. Puff & Tuff Puffs
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Huff N. Puff
HP: 60
ATK: Belly Bounce- 5 + amount of Tuff Puffs
     Lighting- 6
     Charged Lighting- 12
     Tornado Breath- 3/7
     Recovery- 1 Big Tuff Puff=2 HP / 1 Small Tuff Puff=1 HP + # Of
DEF:0

Tuff Puffs
HP: 1
ATK: Recurrent Bash- 2+>
DEF:0

He looks adorable! Now, to beat him. Every time we attack him, something 
called a Tuff Puff appears, and Huff N. Puff will swallow these things if we
don't beat them, healing himself. 10 Tuff Puffs can be on at one time, and 
each regenerates 1 HP. To defeat this monster, use Lakilester's Cloud Nine,
and your Super Jump Charge. Use Lakilester's Spiny Surge to damage Huff N.
Puff, and his minions when they come out, but otherwise, just use the Spiny
Flip attack, to save FP.

After about 10 charges, unleash, POWER JUMP! Now, the reason for all these
badges, you ask? Well, Super Jump Charge + Power Jump are the key to this
battle, while Quick Change allows you to swap between Lakilester and Watt
quickly (you'll see why soon.) Then, Group Focus is so that your partner can
recharge Star Power if needed, while you keep charging, and Power Plus for 
more power, same with All or Nothing and the Super Boots. Damage Dodges are 
for his Lighting attacks, which cause 6 or 12 damage depending on if he 
charges, and the Pretty Lucky badge to increase Cloud Nines effect (I am SO
smart!)

Now, once you are happy with the way your charge is going, swap out 
Lakilester, and put in Watt, and make him use his Turbo Charge on you, after 
that, unleash your Power Jump, and it should do heaps of damage (my 
calculations are, if correct, after 10 charges, Mario's damage ratio will be
35, and after 20, it will be 70, completely wiping out Huff N. Puff, and,
with the added damage from Lakilester, you win anyway after 10 charges)

And, one more thing. If you are low on HP/FP, get rid of all of the Tuff
Puffs, and charge Star Power. Huff N. Puff is a lot more weak without them, so
this gives you time to Smooch, Refresh and Chill out (get it?)

Remember, this is a FP draining strategy, so be prepared.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Watch as Huff N. Puff blows up, literally, and the near last Spirit comes
into reach...

What are you waiting for, touch the card and free the Star Spirit!

**Undercover Princess [051]*************************************************

Amazingly, Peach, after what may seem like 6 hours in Mario time, finally got
enough brains to figure out that she can use the Sneaky Parasol to sneak out
of the castle! Head through the secret passage, and out the door. Head 
towards two off duty Koopatrols, and press B to become one. Now, we can see
fit that we get around the castle as we please. Firstly, head to the room 
with the strange chest, and put the Jammin' Jelly you won from the quiz into
it, and the Last Stand badge. Head into the library, and make your way to the
back, where you found out about Tubba Blubba. Talk to the Hammer Bro., and 
for some reason he panics and gives you a Shooting Star. Put that in the 
chest as well. We only have one place worth searching, so head to the highest
level, and talk to the Koopatrol guarding the Star Door, so he lets you 
through. 

Head to the other side of the corridor, and talk to the other guard guarding 
the door, for another Castle Key, that you must use to access the lower level
and find a slacking Clubba. Head to the lowest level and use the key. Become 
the Clubba, don't bother talking to it, and go to the guard again so that he 
leaves and lets you through. Head through the corridor to another door, and 
climb all the stairs in the next room. Head through another door, to the 
outside bridge, and walk to the other side. Kammy Koopa comes out, saying 
that even if Mario comes with all the Star Spirits, that they'll be ready. 
As Kammy walks past Peach/Clubba, she stops and says 'Good Job', but then 
stops again, noticing the nice smell that Peach/Clubba has. Once Kammy 
uncovers Peach, and sends her back to her room, you're back at Mushroom 
Kingdom...

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

==Centre Flower Fields==

Once the next Star Spirit, Klevar, introduces himself, and gives you the
Star Power Time Out, which stops time around your enemies, letting you attack
while they helplessly stand there. Head back to Toad Town.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Before the next Chapter [052]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Toad Town, east==

Well...now what? That Peach thing didn't give us much of an insight of the 
last Spirit, and Rowf has run out of badges (if you've been buying), and
the only thing really to do now, is the *Koopa Koot favors.

Really, this was what psychics where invented for. Head to Merlons house, and
make him tell you your next path. Although there is no point, for imp about
to tell you anyway, follow the storyline. At Merlon's House, you would notice
a small and very strange looking creature. He says he is from Starborn Valley
in the Shiver region. He asks for Marioís help, or Merlon does, well either
way we must get to Shiver City, which is where...?

Now, once the little dude leaves, there are two ways to get to Shiver City.

1. Take a Toad Town shortcut, only accessible if you found Rip Cheato and
   taken warp pipe via blue house next to Tayce T, and head two areas before 
   him through the warp pipe.

2. Look into the Tunnels guide, find 4AC and look for how to get there.

==Toad Town Tunnels, 4AC==

In here, either way, you'll end up in a room with a Blue Door to the right.
Get Watt out, and use him to reveal all the invisible ? Blocks. Now, if you
DON'T have Ultra Boots yet, shame on you. Read the Ultra Boot location
section in the Toad Town Tunnels guide.

Use your Ultra Boot ability, the Tornado Jump, and hit all those blocks, to
form a path (yes, they must be visible for some reason.) Head across the 
blocks from the stairs, and enter the door.

==Shiver Pipe==

Enter the Warp Pipe.

==Frosty Tunnels==

The first thing you'd notice, is the tunnel is FROZEN! Yes, frozen. Walk 
left, and hit the Super Block and upgrade the eagerly waiting Goombario, and
head right, past the warp pipe, up the stairs, and into another warp pipe.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chapter Seven: A Star Spirit on Ice [053]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1) Murder Mysteries 101 [054]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Shiver City==
Items:
 Key in frozen lake
Badges:
 Attack FX E Badge in house with no door
Star Pieces:
 Second area to the left, hidden floor panel
---------------------
Welcome, to Shiver City. Home of the penguins. No matter what you do, really,
there is nobody who gives you the slightest hint of what to do. Head one area
left, and collect the star piece in the floor panel, under the mound of snow
and shovels. Now, for the Attack FX E badge. See that house with no door? 
Enter the house to the right of it, and jump onot the drawers, then the 
fireplace, then the shelf, the books and the window cill, and exit via the
bottom window. Walk to the left and jump to the other house with no door, and
enter via the window. Walk down the stairs, and open the Chest for the FX
badge. 

Head back outside, and to the leftmost house (so many directions.) Head into 
that house, for I can't exactly hint you on what to do. The pink penguin says
that  her husband is in the other room, let's go meet him! ...oh look, 
whatt'ya know, he's dead. 

Press A near him, and a speech bubble states 'No reply... Mayor Penguin's 
body doesn't budge an inch." Ok, I lied about the no hint thing, for a 
penguin in the right part of town says something, but this is a walkthrough, 
not a hint station. Anyway, continue reading, 'What's this? He has a memo in 
his hand that says, "Herringway."' 

After that, his wife comes in, as she notices her dead husband. She calls it
a 'penguin murder mystery', but my heading is way cooler. Once she comes back
in with a green penguin, she blames Mario for the accident. She makes up some
bogus stories about Mario barging in and what not, and she even claims that
she saw Mario do it. But, because he's so nice, he gives Mario a chance to
find the real murderer, but he cannot leave the city, leaving out the option
of visiting Merlon (oh how I loath the smart Nintendo gaming people...) 

Outside again, word has ever so quickly spread about what happened. Now, i'm
going to list some clues on this mystery. 

1. A penguin in the other house on left area says that Herringway has 
   mysteriously disappeared, and that he's a expert at crime and criminals.

2. Penguin in town centre talks about Herringway's novels being suspicious.

3. Penguin in town centre talks about, and I quote,'(a) Crazy guy I saw 
   running around her the other day.'

With those three clues, it is obviously pointing to Herringway. A Penguin
says that he lives in a house right by the lake, so go visit him. He's in the
leftmost house...or that's what everyone claims. 

The house is empty, apparently, so head outside again. If you haven't noticed
the key in the lake yet, you obviously didn't explore. Before, if you tired,
you couldn't Tornado Jump the ice, so try now, 3 times. Use Sushie to get
into the water via the pier, and get the key. Use the key in the locked house
north of the lake. Climb the stairs, and use the spring to get to the roof.
Head left down the ice slide, and climb into the chimney, into Herringway's
house.

Apparently, he has actually turned up this time, in the upper level of his 
home. Talk to him, and make him climb down the secret staircase. Follow him
all the way to the Mayor's House, as the green penguin starts blaming 
Herringway, making false accusations about the paper in the Mayor's hand that
says "Herringway". After some talking, the Mayor makes a movement and a small
squeak sound with his foot. Once the Mayor gets up and explains about a small
accident, involving a hard fall, he gives Herringway a present, which would
explain the paper saying Herringway. Once he leaves, and the Mayor gives
Mario permission to head to Shiver Snowfield, which is in the right parts of
town, at the rightmost edge, head there.

(For those who haven't tried, who keeps leaving a potato at the Inn when you
recover...)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2) Snowmen, Palaces and Star Kids [055]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Shiver Snowfield==
Items:
 Letter in tree
 Repel Gel behind biggest tree
Star Pieces:
 Hidden Floor Panel in area with snowmen
Enemies:
 Frost Piranha, Gulpit
 Mini-Boss Battle: Jr. Troopa - Fifth Encounter
 Mini-Boss Battle: Monstar
---------------------
Walk through this path, and soon enough, Jr. Troopa will appear. He once 
again, challenges Mario to a duel, but with a more...magical side to it.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mini-Boss Battle: Jr. Troopa - Fifth Encounter
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

HP: 50
ATK:8
DEF:1

With some faith, trust, and red boots, we can win. He has a magical attack
now of 8, so be careful. There is one extremely easy way to defeat him. 
Equip All or Nothing and a Mega Smash badge, and Mega Smash him 10 times. But
if you don't have that equipped right now, jump him. Jump him a lot. Use 
Goombario's new Multibonk, and this will be easy. Power Bounce is way easier
to execute now, with your new boots, so make sure to equip that.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Once you win, he, again, "dies".
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Walk across the scary-looking Troopa, and into the next area. 

One of the trees here have a Letter in it, and its layers of leaves will fall
off every time you hit it. It's along the east, and once you see the Letter,
hit the trunk to collect it. Get the star piece in the panel near the south,
and before heading to the next area, collect the Repel Gel hidden behind the
humongous tree before the exit. Now you may enter the next area.
(Notice the weird looking snowmen lined up against the wall...?)

In here, you'd notice the nice music, from S.S. Summit. Walk right, and 
battle the new Frost Piranha enemy, usually accompanied by the new Gulpit
enemy. Walk to the right, and when you come across another Piranha, defeat it
and head north behind the ice rock to get a Letter (the rock isn't exactly
non-transparent.) Head up the ledges to the right, and when you get to the
top, a strange voice calls out to you. It turns out to be a very cool multi-
colored ghost. This thing says it's scary, but not until you Tattle it...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mini-Boss Battle: Monstar
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

HP: 20
ATK: Star Drizzle- 1
DEF:0

This is utterly sad. If you read Goombario's Tattle, he says "It's attack
must be high, judging by its looks." Well, 1 attack doesn't seem much, and it
is our Star Storm in its "Beta Version", if you know what that means. 2 turns
this is over, if you battle it with action commands, no FP needed! Well, 
at least that's my recommendation. I used Power Bounce, and it turns out you
can Power Bounce it 25 times.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Once you defeat it, it turns out to be a horde of Star Kids!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Walk to the right, into the next area.

==Starborn Valley==

This place turns out to be a town, and Merle is waiting for you. Merle
invites Mario to her home, for she cannot say anything out in the cold. 
Follow... him, into... his home.

==Merle's Home==
Items: 
 Scarf from Merle
---------------------
Merle will start talking about the importance of this place. Starborn Valley
turns out to be the birthplace of all Stars. But, because of Bowser, the
Stars cannot rise to the sky for his place is too powerful, blocking off the
Kids paths. Merle says, that he had a dream, a dream about the next Spirit.
He talks about a place called Shiver Mountain, in the Crystal Palace. He then
gives Mario a scarf, a item passed down, said to unlock the way to the palace
on top the mountain. Exit the house after that.

==Starborn Valley==

Merle quickly comes out with final words for Mario,Ē Truth lies not only in 
the eyes. Sometimes, even walls may lie." After that confusing sentence, we
must find whatever may accompany the Scarf, which is the second item. Well,
do you remember the creepy snowmen about...2 area back? Head there.

==Shiver Snowfield==

Now, walk to the row of snowmen, and you'd notice one is missing a scarf, and
another is missing a hat. Hand the scarf to the snowman who needs it, and
now to find that hat. I used Merlon (yes I "cheated") to figure out the next
part, so head back to Shiver City.

==Shiver City==
Items:
 Bucket with the Mayor
---------------------
Walk to the Mayor's house, and he'll give you...a bucket? Oh, the hat IS a
bucket... Well, walk to the snowmen already!

==Shiver Snowfield==

Give the Snowman the bucket, and both snowmen you've given the clothes will
thank you, and they reveal the path to... somewhere.

==Shiver Mountain==
Items:
 Star Stone with Madam Merlar
 Ultra Shroom in invisible ? Block
 Pebble in second area
 Last Super Block up the stairs left of first White Clubba
Badges:
 Mega Jump in red ? Block
Star Pieces:
 In small area, south of Save Block (fall of ledge)
Enemies:
 Gulpit, Frost Piranha, Duplighost, White Clubba
---------------------
Love the music, aye? Save at the block, and continue up the stairs. Fall down
the ditch, and Tornado Jump the block of ice. Tornado Jump the switch, to 
make the floor rise, and continue to the right down the stairs. Defeat the
Gulpit, and follow the path to the right and defeat the Frost Piranhas you 
come across. Climb more stairs, and destroy the Brick Block. Stay under where
it was, and Tornado Jump to reveal a hidden ? Block for a Ultra Shroom. Walk
to the next area.

Head down the stairs to the right and follow the path for a... pebble, and
go up the stairs again. Use Kooper to hit the switch to raise the floor, and
then...hey? Why are there two Koopers? After some arguing, you must pick which
is the REAL Kooper. Obviously, if you've been reading the dialogue, it's the
one to the right, so whack your hammer on the left Kooper (dare call me a
moron...), and enter battle with the Duplighosts, and no, Iím not referring to
these things as bosses, for they're too weak. But incase you want a strategy,
here is one: Power Bounce + Multibonk = 1 turn K.O.

After you defeat them, head right, up the stairs and into combat with the new
enemy, the White Clubba. Defeat them, and walk up the stairs to the left,
and hit the LAST Super Block, and upgrade Lakilester. Head right an area.

In this path, lies three items. A Shooting Star, Snowman Doll and Thunder
Rage. Each item is obtainable, but a ice wall will come down if you even
think of obtaining one. Put another item, like our Pebble, into the slots so
that the ice goes up. Your items will not disappear, so this is like extra
storage if you run out at the Item stores. Head right an area.

Don't climb the stairs, for it leads to a for-now dead end. Behind the stairs
is a secret path, so take it. Use Bombette to crush the wall to the right,
and enter it.

Nice music. Head right, and you'd notice it's a dead end. Remember what the
Mayor said? "Truth lies not only in the eyes. Sometimes, even walls may lie."
Walk through the wall to the right, and you'll be welcomed by Madam Merlar,
yet another descendant of the psychics (Merluvlee, Merlon, Merle etc.) Once
again, you must sit through a boring story, fast forwarded by periods because
of Mario's laziness. Unfortunately, that was the short version, so hopefully
she won't come back to tell us the rest. Collect the Star Stone, and head 
back outside.

Head through the hidden path, and this time go up the stairs. Insert the 
stone into the indent, and a obscenely huge mass of icicle staircases rise
from the depths of the ground (that was probably the most smartest and most
sophisticated sentence Iíve said in this walkthrough.) Climb the first flight
and defeat the White Clubba across the path to the right, and hit the red
? Block for a Mega Jump badge (how long since we've seen a red ? Block...)

Climb the second flight of stairs now, and save at the block. Walk south of
the block, and fall off the edge, ever so slowly, to land on a high path with
a Star Piece on it. Climb three flights this time, and heal at the block,
then enter the next room.

In this room, you'd notice the giant mirror. It's the "front yard" of the
Palace, so enter the nice door to enter the palace.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
3) The Palace of Frost [056]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Crystal Palace==
Items:
 Blue key in chest #1
 Red Key in chest #2
 Coin Block in room 2 right of the Blue Door
 Coin Block in room 2 right of the Blue Door (Flipside)
 Super Shroom in ? Block, inside door halfway through first room (Flipside)
 Shooting Star on pedestal inside door halfway through first room (Flipside)
 Maple Syrup in high ? Block, southern door in 5-part room
 Jammin' Jelly in high ? Block, northern door in 5-part room
Badges:
 P-Down, D-Up in chest, room halfway through first room (Flipside)
 P-Up, D-Down in chest, northern 5-part room, under the Dino statue 
Star Pieces:
 In cave outside of Palace (Flipside)
 Hidden Floor Panel under ? Block with Maple Syrup
 Hidden Floor Panel (2) under ? Block with Jammin' Jelly (Flipside)
Enemies:
 Swoopula, Duplighost, Frost Piranha, GRN Magikoopa, GRY Magikoopa, 
 Y Magikoopa, W Magikoopa & White Clubba
 Boss: Crystal King & Crystal Bits
---------------------
Now, the items with the word, Flipside, beside them in brackets, means that
they are obtained in the mirrored sections.

Blue Key
--------
The music to this place just gives you...an eerie tingle in your spine. Well,
firstly, welcome to the Crystal Palace. The whole place is a giant puzzle,
like a literal house of mirrors, which unfortunately this place is obsessed
over. Enter the doorway, halfway through this room.

Save, and enter the next door, and ignore the suspicious 'X' on the floor.
Defeat the new Swoopula enemies, and enter the next room to collect a Blue
Key in the chest.

Red Key
-------
Go back to the lobby, or the room with the giant mirror, and walk to the
right more and Tornado Jump the red switch to make the Blue Door come down.
Use your key, and enter the room.

Use Bombette on the cracked wall, and notice the same thing didn't happen in
the reflection...strange. In the next room, more strangeness! No reflection!
So in other words, it's just glass. Two Coin Blocks are in this room. Ok, it
looks like one because of the "mirror" but it's 2 because its not a mirror so
you're just looking through the glass to the OTHER Coin Block. Hit the first
Coin Block to the right, and go through the gap (you'll see it when the glass
shines and doesn't reflect off the wall.) I call this Flipside, after Super
Paper Mario's town, for Mario...flips. Get the other Coin Block, and bomb the
wall to the left into the previous area.

Once again, Mario is confronted by a Duplighost. So sad. They are like the
previous ones, so do what you did to the other ones to them. Walk through the
Blue Door again, and head right, out to where the mirror was first introduced
before. Head "out" of the palace, and into the previous area where the Heal
Block was. Now, because of Mario's Flipside state, it's just a cave with a
Star Piece. Collect it, and head back into the palace, and enter the door
halfway through the room.

Hit the ? Block for a Super Shroom, and defeat the Swoopula to the right. 
Tornado Jump the wooden panel, and progress through this room like you did
before. Collect the P-Down, D-Up badge, and head back onto the spring to the
above-rooms again. Enter the door to the right, and defeat the Duplighost and
in the next room get a Shooting Star item. Head to the lobby again, through
the Blue Door, one room to the right, and out of Flipside.

Now, the matter of the Red Key. The mirror "reflects" whatever is done in
Flipside to the normal world, and vise versa. So, remember that 'X'? In 
Flipside, that was a wooden panel, so if we go to that room opposite of the 
room in Flipside, it should be gone! So, in non-flipside, head halfway 
through the first area into the door, and down the hole. Bomb the wall at the
end of the path, and there will be about...7 Bombettes (random guess.) These
Duplighosts are getting annoying.

Now, if you've been paying attention to Bombette's speech throughout the
game, you would notice most of her speech is accompanied by a symbol. The
symbols everyone uses are, a star, 1 !, 3 !'s, a heart, or periods. Our
Bombette uses 1 !, so hammer every Duplighost, other than the one near the
bottom right. After that, enter the room and open the chest for a Red Key.

Palace Key
----------
Enter the Red Door, by flipping the switch. The fake part of the glass is
obvious, right smack bang in the middle. Don't enter Flipside, but head to
the next room to the right. 

There is a White Clubba guarding a path, and a Clubba statue in Flipside. I
wonder what happens when we defeat the White Clubba. Battle it, along with
the annoying GRY Magikoopa, and watch as it's Flipside statue explodes. 
Advance across the bridge, and battle yet another White Clubba, accompanied
by the W Magikoopa, to blow up its Flipside statue. Walk right, and defeat,
yet ANOTHER White Clubba, accompanied by the GRN Magikoopa, so that the 
Clubba statue in Flipside is destroyed so we can access a door. Head an area
back, and enter Flipside through the gap in the glass. Enter the area to the
right.

Head through the bridges to the new unblocked door, and use Bombette on the
wall to the right, so that you can enter to get the Triple Dip badge past the
Duplighost. Head back an area, and use Bombette on the switch, but before she
explodes, climb onto the circular pedestal so that when she explodes, the 
glass will spin WITH Mario. Enter the next area, and defeat the White Clubba,
to access the next area.

Yet, another Duplighost is nigh, but it actually helps us! At the end of the
hallway, it shows us that if we use Kooper and hit him through that small 
indent... well, let's just do it. When he comes back, Luigi, Kolorado,
Goompa, Kooper and Koopa Koot impersonations come back with him. You must
smash...the real...Kooper...do they think we're complete idiots? You know
what to do, and after you do do what you did, enter the next area through the
cracked wall.

Here, is a five part room. Two doors leading right, two doors north and 
south, and the door you just came through. The only door we can enter for now
is the door to the south.

Tornado Jump the ? Block for a Maple Syrup, and on landing you'll notice the
floor panel, with the Star Piece. Head to the 5-part room again, and enter
the door to the right. 

While looking at Flipside, use Kooper on the switch to separate a bridge so
that we can cross. Enter the next room, and head through the door to Flipside
then back two rooms, and then a room up. 

Use Watt to reveal a ? Block with a Jammin' Jelly in it (use Tornado Jump),
and get the Star Piece in the hidden panel like in the opposite room. Walk
right, and push the Dino statue to the left, so that Mario falls down a hole.
Defeat the White Clubba in the next room, and in the room after that, get the
P-UP, D-Down badge. Head back a room, and Tornado Jump the panel again for a
second Star Piece. Head to the southern 5-part room, and fall down the hole
to the right of the oversized Dino statue (we moved the one in Flipside, so
this one got moved, too.)

Defeat the Duplighost, and enter the next room, to get a Palace Key from the
chest. This lets us get to the next room where the two locks where, so enter
the bottom right door.

This is a puzzle room. Talk to the first Dino from the southern part of the
room, from the south, and the third Dino from the right. Push the third Dino 
statue (in the north parts of this room) the right onto the floor print, and 
push the first Dino statue north once. Talk from him from the left, and push 
him from the right onto the floor print. Talk to the first Dino from the 
left, and push his statue from the right onto the floor print. Talk to the 
second Dino from the north, and push his statue from the north, south. Talk 
to the same Dino from the right, and push his statue from the left, onto the
floor print, to make some stairs appear. Climb them, and enter the door.

Heal, and Save, and before you enter the next room, equip these badges.

For level 27's
 Mega Jump        -For a good Jump attack
 Super Jump Charge-To charge the Mega Jump
 Happy Flower     -We need the FP
 Deep Focus       -Incase you need healing (20 HP) or just a Star Storm
 Flower Saver     -We don't have to waste THAT much FP...
 Damage Dodge     -He has an attack of 16, which will go down to 14, then 11
 Damage Dodge     -Same reason as that ^^
 P-Up, D-Down     -To increase attack (so we have 4 attack and +1 defense)
 All or Nothing   -To increase attack (so we have 5 attack)
 Feeling Fine     -He has ICE powers

Defense isn't an issue, really. For those who aren't level 27 you have two
choices. Either train with an Amazy Dayzee, or choose which badges to take
out of the group. If my calculations are correct, here is the outcome of how
this battle will end up, firstly, what's our attack and defense, you ask...?

ATK:
   3 + P-Up + All or Nothing = 5 / + Mega Jump + Super Jump Charge/s = 13>
 (Note that ??? has 2 defense)

So, all up, an average of 13 ATK points is what we have per 2 turns...

DEF:
   0 - D-Down = -1 + Damage Dodge = 0 + Damage Dodge = + 1 + action command 
   = +2 defense

...and yet at the same time we've kept our defense balanced at +2!
                                                          
Enter the next door, and you'll be outside the palace.

Head up the snowy path, and at the top you'll meet up, with the Crystal King.
A totally random boss. After his dialogue, battle him.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle: Crystal King & Crystal Bits
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Crystal King
HP: 70
ATK: Crystal Spears- 4 x # of Crystal Bits
    Frost- 7
    Heal- 20 HP (max use of 3 times)
    Multiply- x2 Crystal Kings, 1 is real
DEF:2

Crystal Bits
HP: 1
ATK: Thrown- 4
DEF:0

This is, by far, the most COOLEST backround music ever. Now, a flaw in my
badge plan. His Crystal Spears attack, is powerful. If you don't defend with
the action command, they do 5 damage each (5 + 5 + 5). Don't let this be
your downfall. If you do execute it, the damage is taken as normal so Mario's
defense is up, so each bit does 2 damage.

Now, for the real strategy. His crown is NOT spiky, even though it looks as
it is. The three little crystals around him are called Crystal Bits, and
have no attack. They serve one purpose, to hurt Mario. As long as you can
get rid of this, say with Lakilester, the better. They are thrown by the 
Crystal King, so if you can stop him in his tracks somehow, like a Lullaby,
the Bits just...float there. He does waste one turn summoning them, so try
to take advantage of that. Use Cloud Nine, Water Block and Super Jump Charge,
like with Huff N. Puff, and you'll do fine. After a while, the King will heal
himself up. He heals 20 HP, but can only do this 3 times. 

His Frost does a decent amount of damage, but it can freeze you, which is why
you equipped Feeling Fine. After a while, he will multiply, so you're going
to have to guess which King is real. Use Spiny Surge to find him, and
continue charging. When you feel best, release the Jump attack, but that's
AFTER powering it up with Watt. While you wait for your turn after putting
him in, Hammer the King. Just remember the Jammin' Jellies, and Life Shrooms
for this battle.

Now, for his final attack. It has a power of 8, and Goombario said its called
divide and conquer. The problem, I couldn't witness the attack, for I wiped
out the Crystal King with a 49 damage point Mega Jump attack...
 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
The King disappears, the Star Spirit is revealed, and Mario won!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Watch as the Spirit is freed, read the Chapter summary, and let's head of to
the Peach Scene!

**Final Precautions [057]**************************************************

Oh, the sad music makes me weep... Peach and Twink are talking about how
Mario must be coping, and how Peach has done so many things to aid him. Once
they go back into the room, Bowser walks in asking for a 'friendly' talk. 
After some ranting of how he has won, how Mario cannot win anymore, you
should give up...etc...Kammy comes in delivering some news.
 Once Bowser
hears of how Mario has saved all 7 Spirits, he orders the guards to take
high precautions, and orders them to take Peach away. After Twink, or the
glittering confetti, tries to save her, he gets slapped away from the castle,
and Peach is once again taken away to another location.

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


==Shiver Mountain==

Back outside the Palace, Mario and Kalmar, the Spirit we just saved, talk of
how he is ready to challenge Bowser. Kalmar gives Mario the last power, Up
& Away, which totally destroys nearly all monsters in battle, and for a cheap
cost too, but yet, no Star Points. After Kalmar tells Mario to head off to
Shooting Star Summit, then to the Star Haven, via the Star Way (this is
Chapter Two all over again), he flies away, letting you take control of
Mario once again.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Before our Depature [058]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now, before we leave Toad Town to go rescue Peach, we have some things to
do.

1. Buy badges with your Star Pieces from Merle
2. Complete Koots final favors
3. Deliver post to people for Star Pieces
4. Collect items in chest from Peach's findings
5. Buy a heaping of Life Shrooms, stacks of Ultra Shrooms and Jammin' Jellies
   and make some Jelly Ultra out of them (with Tayce T.'s help)
6. Head to Pleasant Path and defeat Kent C. Koopa, read Monsters List (boss)
   for more details. He's listed in both the bosses list AND a section of
   his own.
7. Get to level 27 (or 25, so that you can level up before Bowser)
8. Battle the Dojo now, if you wish. Look up the battles in the Dojo section
   in Section B, or skim through the Bosses lists.

Now, we CANNOT collect items once we enter the castle, so stock up on things
like Jelly Supers, Jelly Ultras and things like that. For a more extensive
list of recommended items, read this next paragraph, or skip it.

=========================================
If you want the BEST and most recommended items, here they are. Because we
are limited to only 10 items, I recommended you have wise pickings of which
item to cook or obtain.

Jelly Ultra --> Basically because they restore 50 of each HP and FP. Useful
                for the major hard battle against Bowser.
How to make it: Use a Ultra Shroom and Jammin' Jelly.
--------------------------------
Sweet Shroom -> It recovers decent amounts of life, 30HP and 20FP, and is
                useful against mini-bosses throughout the castle.
How to make it: Use a Cake Mix, and Life Shroom (Ultra Shrooms are too hard
                to find)
--------------------------------
Jelly Pop ----> You might need major FP healing, because this restores 64 of
                your FP!
How to make it: Use a Cake Mix and Jammin' Jelly
--------------------------------
Deluxe Feast -> Restores 40 HP and FP
How to make it: Either way it's a sacrifice. Whacka's Bump + Strange Leaf,
                or a Shroom Steak + Potato Salad. The Salad is made of a
                Potato, and the Steak is a Life Shroom and Mushroom.
--------------------------------
Maple Super --> For those small recoveries, it heals 10 FP + HP
How to make it: Super Shroom and Maple Syrup
--------------------------------

The rest of the things you should stock up on are 3-5 Life Shrooms. You can
deduct the amount of Life Shrooms, and add some more Jelly Ultras, Sweet
Shrooms etc. 

Find Cake Mixes at Shy Guys Toy Box Blue Station, left area, Potatoes are
from the Inn at Shiver City (spend a night sleeping and a potato appears on
the table), Strange Leaves are outside Boo's mansion in the bushes and 
Whacka's Bumps are with Whacka on Mt. Rugged.

For me though, I had:
     2 Jelly Ultras
     2 Repel Gels (it wasnít mention for it isn't a healing item)
     2 Deluxe Feasts
     4 Life Shrooms

So, I have 4 recovery items, 2 backup battle items and 4 recover-if-you-die
items. Good combo?
===========================================

All right, now that we've covered THAT up, head to the summit.

==Shooting Star Summit==
Star Pieces:
 Head left of summit to secret area
 Spin Jump first ledge for piece in floor panel
---------------------
Get the two Star Pieces listed just above, and climb the summit, to where the
Star Road is opened.

==Star Road==
Enemies:
 Ember
---------------------
Head right, and defeat the new enemy, the Ember. Keep climbing the road until
you get to the Star Haven.

==Star Haven==

This, is where all stars are supposedly born. There is a Inn, Items shop and
Save station here, so do what you will and follow the oath to the right.

==Star Sanctuary==

Enter the magnificent dome, and head to the centre to talk to the Spirits.
They will give Mario the Star Beam, which destroys Bowser's Star Rod
protection, and the Star Ship, a flying ship that can lead Mario to Bowser's
Castle. Enter if you're ready, but from now, be ready.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chapter Eight: A Star-Powered Showdown [059]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1) Bowser's Basement [060]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Bowser's Castle==
Items:
 Castle Key with first Koopatrol you meet
 Castle Key in chest
 Castle Key in highest ledge where the chains and water is
 Prison Key with lone Koopatrol
 Tasty Tonic in jail cell crates
 Mystery? on ledge surrounded by lava
 Thunder Rage on second ledge surrounded by lava
 POW Block in ? Block in darkened area
 Shooting Star in second ? Block in darkened area
Enemies:
 Koopatrol, Hammer Bros., Magikoopa, Bony Beetle
---------------------
Note, that if you are level 27, you really only need Up & Away for this.

Exit this area from the bottom right, and you'll be outside. Equip the Spike
Shield Badge, for Russ T. recommended it, and so do I. Walk across the bridge
above the lava, and ignore the locked door and head to the right. Enter the
doorway.

Head right, and defeat the Koopatrol. Collect the Castle Key he drops, so
that you can unlock the door outside, into the castle.

Head right, defeating all the Koopatrols until the next area. Defeat yet
even more Koopatrols, and some Hammer Bros. Head into the next area, where
your first Guard Door awaits you. Guard doors shield the upcoming paths but
always have a way around them. They always trick Mario, so this Guard Door 
asks for Mario to stand in front of him after you tell him you want to pass
through. When you do as you're told, he makes you fall into a trap door, and
you end up, for the second time, stuck in a jail cell. Tornado Jump the
crates to the right, starting from the highest, for a Tasty Tonic, and the 
one you used as a step for a Life Shroom. Bomb the wall to the right, and 
enter the area.

Save, and head 1 area to the right. Cross the lava onto the platforms by 
jumping to the right all the way to yet another door. Take out Lakilester,
and use his hover to cross the lava to the switch so that a moving platform
appears. Cross it, and use his ability again to hit another switch to make
another platform move. Ignore the door in the lava, and use the platforms
to cross to the other side into the door, with Parakarry's help at the very
small platforms to the end. Use Lakilester across the next area's lava, and
jump onto the platform, and use Parakarry to get to the Mystery to the left.
Head to the right across lava, and use Bow to get onto the platform, and head
across the lava flowing from the ceiling. Use Lakilester again, and this time
enter the doorway in the lava. 

Head around the giant lava fountain, and climb the stairs to the right, then
the left. At the top you will meet up with some Koopatrols and a Magikoopa,
which, even though was a boss a while back, has turned into a ... well, the
tattle is different, so I don't know what happen. It has all the powers of
all the Magikoopas, so take it out quickly. Once you win, hit the switch to
stop the lava flow so you can walk on it, and head an area back.

If you noticed, there was a Thunder Rage on a ledge before surrounded by lava
that we couldn't get. Now we can, so head to the left and jump to it, then go
to where you bombed the wall out of the jail cell. Save, and walk an area to
the right, then take the lower door south of the one we just came from. Walk
around, and climb the stairs to the ? Block for a Life Shroom, and keep
walking to the left until you end up outside.

Walk under the bridge, and jump onto the ledges to a red ? Block for a Deep
Focus badge. Walk back three areas after you get that.

Enter the doorway about halfway through where the lava was flowing into, and
jump to the chest for a castle key. Head back an area, and right an area, all
the way to the far right. Jump onto the ledge and unlock the door to the next
area.

WARNING: This area is darkened, not using Watt in this area and then having
to enter battle will force Mario to inflict NO damage on the enemies.

Use Watt, and head right, north, and then left, and meet the new enemy; the
Bony Beetle. Now, Bony Beetles are annoying, for they cannot be tattled,
because you need Watt to do any attacks, so its impossible. Coming across one
will force you to run, and therefore lose your coins. Head right, and north,
then left up the hill. Hit the ? Block for a POW Block, and head back right
down the hill, then south to the three way fork. Head to the left-centre,
and use Parakarry to get across the gap. Head left to the next area.

There are two paths, both with Koopatrols. Head to the north, and defeat the
Koopatrol to the right. Head up the hill and hit the ? Block for a Shooting
Star. Head back down and take the centre, then use Parakarry across the gap.
In the next area, take the northern path, and fall down the gap. Head left,
and battle the Magikoopa with Watt, and then more to the right to the next
area.

Push the block in the middle with a picture of Bowser on it to the left, and
it will somehow reveal a hidden door. Enter it, and you'll end up back in the
area where the Guard Door was. He must keep his word for some strange reason,
and lets you through.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2) The Remaining Guard Doors [061]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Bowser's Castle==
Items:
 Castle Key in the rightmost room after outside bridge
 Prison Key with Koopatrol guarding the second cell
 Maple Syrup in invisible ? Block after revealing path in wall
 Super Shroom in ? Block in room after the B. Bill Blasters
 Maple Syrup in invisible ? Block after the B. Bill Blasters room
 Super Shroom (2) in ? Blocks on bridge after second Guard Door
 Maple Syrup on bridge after second Guard Door, in a ? Block
 Jammin' Jelly on wall under stairs outside the second Guard Door
 Ultra Shroom in left path after bridge AFTER second Guard Door
Enemies:
 Hammer Bros., Koopatrol, Magikoopa, B. Bill Blaster, Bombshell Bill, Dry 
 Bones / Dark Koopa Troopa, Shy Guys, Goombas, Bob-ombs
 Optional Mini-Bosses: Anti Guy x3
 Mini-Boss: Jr. Troopa - Sixth Encounter
---------------------
Walk to the right and Save at the block, and take the right route to an area
with a jail cell. Defeat the lone Koopatrol guarding it, and get the key from
him to open the cell. In the cell area 4 toads, 2 are locals, 1 is a guard
Toad and the other a Toad from the Outpost in Dry Dry Desert. The Toad to the
right that looks normal lets Mario refresh his body and soul, so it's
basically an inn. Heal, and head back to the area with the Save Block. Head
up the stairs to the north, and head to the eastern path to another doorway.

In here, is a Items shop. Yes, sorry for before, I forgot to mention it so
that you can store items back at Toad Town and claim them here. He has some
good items, everything except for a Life Shroom...once you're done buying,
head out, and around the path to the door opposite of the shop.

In here is a hallway of enemies, completely avoidable by staying to the
bottom of the screen and spin dashing to the other side. Once there, head to
the right one area, and then more to the right until you see a Blue Spring.
Jump onto the higher ledge to the left, and walk to the right to where a 
bluish chain is hanging. Jump onto it to pull it down, so that water comes
from nowhere. Pull it again so that it goes back to who knows where, but for
now we need the water. Use Sushie on the pier to the right, and head back an
area through the enormous doorway. 

Board the pier to the left, and hit the blue switch to reveal a Blue Spring.
Jump onto the higher level to the right, and use Bombette on the wall to
break it (have you noticed we've used almost every partner in this castle?)
Head through the hole, and Tornado Jump the brick block so we can access the
switch. Hit it to reveal a path in the wall, and head through it. When you
come to a part where you must exit the path to get around a wall, use Watt to
reveal a ? Block with a Maple Syrup. Continue through the path, and pull yet
another chain. Head back an area, and use the pier to get to the other pier
to obtain a Castle Key. Now, do everything I told you to do movement wise
backwards, to get all the water back to the lowest level, then pull the 1st
chain to drain it. Use the key on the door on the lowest level to the far right
and enter the area.

In this area, are upgraded versions of a Bill Blaster and Bullet Bill. They
are painted gold, and have a whopping 4 defense, close to Kent C. Koopa's 6
defense, which so far is the highest. Head through the paths and stairs 
defeating the B. Bill Blasters and Bombshell Bills (all I have to say to 
those battles, is thank god for Mega Smash, Mega Jump and Mega Quake.) Once 
you get to the end enter the doorway.

The second you get in here start running around, for the two Dry Bones will
start throwing bones at you. The only funny thing about these guys is that
they have a horrible weakness against fire. I didn't even execute an action
command for Kooper's Fire Shell and they died with 11 damage! Defeat the
Dry Bones, and get the Super Shroom in the ? Block. Use Watt then to reveal
an invisible ? Block to the left of the other ? Block for a Maple Syrup. Push
the rightmost stone with the Bowser picture on it, and enter the doorway, and
walk through the corridor to another room.

Defeat the Bony Beetle, which, now can be tattled if you wish, and Save at
the nearby block. Push the leftmost stone to the right or left, and enter the
hallway. Heal at the block, and walk right. Enter the area, and defeat the
crazy Hammer Bro. This room tricks you a bit, for it already has shown you
the path of which you must take. Although, at the end of the hallway in the
centre path, is nothing. Push the stone to the right to reveal a hidden path,
and walk through that path to the end for the next Castle Key. Head back to
the room where the Save block was, which was about 4 rooms, and unlock the
door to the right.

In here, is the next guard door. Talk to it, and it says that it wants to
quiz you, then you can go through. There are 7 questions, and you're only
allowed 2 mistakes, so that is a 5 out of 7 chance you will get through. But,
if you get 3 mistakes, you are forced to battle three Anti Guys! Although
that sounds horrifying, it's easy with Watt's Mega Shock. But, if you don't
want that option here are the answers. Basically, you must observe the 
enemies that come out, their feet, color, number, EVERYTHING!

   shells?
   Green
   Purple <-- Correct Answer
   Red

Once you win, or lose, either way he lets you in, if you win the battle. 
Enter the doorway, and you'll end up being outside.

Hit the two nearby ? Blocks for a Super Shroom and Maple Syrup, and head
right, defeating the Koopatrol and get the second Super Shroom in the ? Block
to the right. Climb the stairs, and after the first flight, stand near the
southern edge ever so slowly, to fall onto a ledge with a Jammin' Jelly (I
had to throw that away...*sniffle*) Climb the stairs, and follow the path
straight though the Magikoopas on the brooms. Head through the door, and to
the left, so you can Save at the block. To the left is another jail cell with
a Inn, so go there if you need healing, just remember the key is with the
Koopatrol. Head up the stairs, and there are two paths. The path to the left
has a Ultra Shroom waiting for you, while the path to the right leads to
Bowser. The next paragraph is for the left path, then the next after that is
the right.

Head to the left and open the door. Avoid the Dry Bones, unless you want some
Star Points, and climb the little multi-colored blocks. Keep walking to the
left, and jump down when you get to the end onto a lower ledge. Get out 
Bombette, and deploy her to the left. Wait for her to go off, and the ledge
you're on will rise, and so will a nearby one. Jump onto the other one, then
onto the other wall, before time runs out. Head through the door and get the
Ultra Shroom waiting for you, and head back to the room that leads to Bowser.

Head to the right, and open the door. Defeat the Hammer Bro. to the right,
and defeat the other Hammer Bro. on top the stairs. Enter the door after the
stairs, and defeat the Magikoopa in your way. Head to the right, and you
see that path on the floor? Right before the red switch, you can see the top
part of a wall. Step onto that, and use Kooper on the switch, and race to the
other platform that rose to the door, and collect the Castle Key.

Walk back two rooms, to where the Hammer Bros. were, walk down the stairs,
south then to the right, and unlock the door with your key. The next room is
like a remake of the old Super Mario games, where you must take certain
routes to make it to the end. Here is a little one word per room guide, north
meaning the northern door to the right, and south meaning the southern door 
to the right.

1st Room: North 
2nd Room: South
3rd Room: South
4th Room: North
5th Room: South
6th Room: North

In the next room after the 6th, is a bridge. Defeat all the enemies on the
bridge, and head back to the Inn at the jail cell, heal, and save at the
block outside. Make your way back to the bridge, then enter the doorway to 
the right.

Heal at the block if you wish for no reason (we went to the inn for our Star
Power, by the way) and head to the right. Amazingly, at the end of this
corridor, is Princess Peach!? She says that she got away from Bowser, and 
there's no need to fight, and you should go. If you head back out to the
bridge, she won't come. Head back to the corridor, and then, you'll see a 
Duplighost? Ah, I see...head to Peach again, and Hammer her a little, until,
she becomes a Duplighost! Into battle, defeat the Duplighost foursome, and
enter the door, remember to equip Spike Shield!

In the doorway, is the third and last Guard Door. He summons the Koopa Bros.,
the annoying Ninja's from the Fortress in Chapter one, remember? But then, an
unexpected guest arrives. It's, the Jr. Troopa! Well, Iíd rather battle him
than those annoying ninjas any day! (Only because they said they're more...
'powerful'.)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mini-Boss Battle: Jr. Troopa - Sixth Encounter
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

HP: 60
ATK: Head butt- 8
     Turns Spiked and Flies- <30HP
     Spike Charge- 9
DEF:2

I say, with that attack to think he'd at least grown a LITTLE muscle. He is
very easy to beat, actually. This was my exact doing, I Super Jump Charged,
Tattled, then defended. I did that another two times, including Goombario's
Charge alongside me, and then, I unleashed Power Bounce + Multibonk. He ended
up with 2 HP, and I Jumped him with the aid of Spike Shield. It's as easy as
that.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Watch as the little Koopa gets mad again, and runs away...poor dude.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once he leaves, the Door is left with a sort of paradox, because the Jr.
Troopa defeated the Koopa Bros., while Mario defeated Jr. Troopa. So he is
left to think whether because Mario defeated Jr. Troopa, is he stronger than
the Koopas? Well, the Door lets you through anyway stating that you cannot
beat Bowser anyway. Head through the door, and you'll end up outside Peach's
Castle! Finally! Save, and head inside.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
3) The final Battles [062]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Peach's Castle==
Items:
 Life Shroom in library
Enemies:
 Boss Battle: Bowser - Second Encounter
              Bowser - Final Encounter

Inside, head to the right and climb the stairs, into the room where that 
Toad was locked in the closet a while back. Free him, and it turns out he's
running a Inn! Heal, and head back out.

Go one floor up, and enter the library to the left. Head through the shelves,
and get to a part where a vase with some flowers is in it. Head to the books
northwest of the vase, and jump onto them, making your way up to the shelf,
and follow the left path to the Life Shroom you may have noticed when we
came here with Peach. Head up the stairs to the next floor, and walk through
the corridor. Before you enter the next door, heal, and equip these badges:

 Fire Shield
 Power Plus
 Power Plus
 All or Nothing
 P-Up, D-Down
 Power Bounce

Head into the next room, and you'll see that Bowser has tied Peach onto a
string. He automatically battles you after some dialogue.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle: Bowser - Second Encounter
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

HP: 50
ATK: Squashier- 6
    Slash- 6
    Flamethrower- 6/13
    Light Blast- 2
    Heal- 20 HP
DEF:1/4 with Star Rod's help

Now, if you chose to ignore my badge list and made some charging implements,
you are doomed. Bowser's Light Blast will destroy those of the attack you
have been charging. Don't waste your time on him, don't use any items, and
remember to use Star Beam when he uses his rod.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Once you win, Bowser will fly off with Princess Peach, and tells Mario to
head to the upper parts if you want her back.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Head back to the inn and heal, and go back to this place. Follow the path to
a door, and enter it. Climb the stairs, and exit through another door. Walk
across the bridge, as you see Bowser fly away with Peach, and enter yet
another door. Save at the block, and equip the following badges:

Note: Be at level 27 for this, otherwise, take out a Power Plus badge or the
Quick Change.

 Power Plus    -For an extra attack boost
 Power Plus    -For more attack boost
 All or Nothing-No such thing as too much attack!
 Power Bounce  -For a consecutive defeat
 Fire Shield   -His flamethrower is more threatening
 Damage Dodge  -To defend against his great amounts of attack
 Quick Change  -Incase you need quick swapping
 Dodge Master  -To make our All or Nothing and Damage Dodge work better
 Deep Focus    -Incase we need some smooching

Climb the spiral staircase, and enter, the door, at...the top. Note, you
cannot come back at this point in time, so do what you must, train, get more
badges, ANYTHING!

Head across the cool looking bridge, and Bowser starts ranting about himself
and his win. Once he destroys your only way out, Kammy Koopa says that she
had invented a device to make Bowser stronger! Once the platform you are very
well standing on powers up Bowser, making him twice as huge, he enters battle
with Mario.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Final Boss Battle: Bowser - Final Encounter
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

HP: 99
ATK: Slash- 8/16
     Foot Stomp- 8/16 - Command Loss
     Light Blast- 10/20 
     Flamethrower- 9/20
     Heal- 30 HP
DEF:1/invincible with Star Rod's help

He, seems utterly undefeatable. Don't use any form of FP yet, because 
something unexpected will soon happen. Just jump him for now, and once he
uses the Star Rod, use Star Beam on him...

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
???
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

For some reason, Star Beam didn't work! Once Peach realizes what happen,
Kammy comes towards Peach, as Twink comes down and hits Kammy on the head.
Once Kammy comes back, she enters a small battle with Twink. He only has a 
Dash attack, but with Peach's wishes, she gives Twink enough power to defend
completely against Kammy. Once Twink wins, Peach starts making a huge wish
to aid Mario, along with Mushroom Kingdom. After a bit, the Star Spirits will
appear, and grant Mario the Peach Beam, as Bowser realizes somethingís up,
you re-enter battle...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Final Boss Battle: Bowser - Final Encounter
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

HP: 99
ATK: Slash- 8/16 - Poisoning
     Foot Stomp- 8/16 - Command Loss
     Light Blast- ??
     Flamethrower- 9/20
     Thunder- 10/20
     Heal- 30 HP
DEF:1/invincible with Star Rod's help

Ok, let's start again. Use Peach Beam first turn, and then Lakilesterís
Cloud Nine. When it's Mario's turn, use Power Bounce, which should do about
10 damage, or if you want, charge it with Watt. Repeat this, and defend 
against Bowser's attacks, use Peach Beam, and this should, amazingly, be
one of the easiest battles ever. Although the occasional Light Blast may
ruin this, you can use your Items that you've saved up.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Once Bowser is defeated, he accidentally drops the rod, giving it to Mario...
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once you win, Peach thanks Mario, but the platform starts exploding. Once
Bower and Kammy are blown away, Mario and Peach are doomed to...

...be rescued by the Star Spirits! Yay! Once the Star Spirits finish their
talking, and head back to the Star Haven with the Star Rod in safe hands,
Twink must depart, wanting to say something (supposedly I love you, proving
Twink is a boy) but doesn't, and flies away.

Ending [063]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

==Mario's House==

Back at Mario's house, Mario and Luigi start talking, and then it becomes
a cutscence to Parkarry, delivering letters to Mario's partners, an invitation
to Peach's party at her castle! And after a funny scene of Kolorado realizing
that he left without telling his wife again, back at Mario's house they also
get a letter, and Luigi and Mario set off. 

==Toad Town, main==

You control Mario at the centre Toad Town, so head to Peach's Castle.

==Peach's Castle==

Around the castle are groups of all we met, from Moustafa to the Mayor
Penguin! Enter the castle, and Princess Peach makes a short speech about what
happened, and how she thanks everyone, then it goes to the credits (pretty
entertaining credits if you ask me, they show nearly every character in the
whole game, like Huff N. Puff, Gourmet Guy, and even Bowser. Then, at night
time, you see all the Psychics, to some great shows.)


 Game Finished!
I didn't completely clock the game, but here were my statistics on the board
at Mario's and Luigi's house:

 *Coins Earned: 7483
 *Badges Collected: 80/80
 *Star Pieces Collected: 160/160
 *Tayce T.'s Recipes: 8/50
 *Chuck Quizmo's Quizzes: 19/19
 *Number of Battles: 371
 *Your First Strikes: 127
 *Enemies' First Strikes: 50
 *Total Power Bounces: 56 

Star Pieces may look different to you, say something around the lines of
90/160 to 120/160. This is because of Chuck Quizmo. He has 64 questions,
meaning 64 Star Pieces, the Koot has 15, and you must get the other 11 from
the letter delivery. That leaves 90 up for grabs around Mushroom Kingdom.

Without all the Star Pieces, Mario cannot get all the Badges, for Merlow
has some badges which you need to clock the game. I didn't list any recipes
for Tayce T., so i only go to cook 8 types of foods. 

Other than that, here are the percentages of progress.

Star Pieces             -->  16 %
Badges                  -->  11 %
Tattles                 -->   5 %
Chuck Quizmo Questions  -->  13 %
Level 27                -->   2 %    --> All up 100 %  --> Add up for your 
Recipes                 -->   5 %                               score
Letter Delivery         -->  10 %
Completion of Game      -->  20 %
Item obtainance         -->  10 %
Completeing Sidequests
and optional enemies    -->   8 %
like Kent C. Koopa


100 %     --> Well done, you obviously figured out the other recipes AND
              followed my walkthroughs every, single, word.

90 %      --> You left some things out, but otherwise great!


80 %      --> You could do better...

  
70 %      --> Now you're just lazy.


60 %      --> Ok, this is utterly saddenning.


50 %      --> Not completing half the game is a TRADEGY.


And lower --> MAKE A NEW GAME AND READ MY WALKTHROUGHS EVERY WORD! 


Now, onto the sections [ :) ]


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Section A: Partners
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here I will list all of Mario's partners he will come across during the game
with a attack list and a short description of what they can do and where you
can find them. Also, how to execute the attack (action command form only.)

I have also listed the Star Spirits, and their powers too.


Goombario, the brains of the bunch (Goomba)
Specialty: Tattle, Description of area/enemy.

Location: Goomba Village, Goombario joins your team after helping Goompa get
          back to the Village. When he joins your team, he also lets you 
          access the partners tab in the Start Menu.

Goombario is a special Headbonker, and is usually the teammate who spends
the most time battling, because of his Tattle ability, which should be used
every time you encounter a new enemy. But that IS totally optional.

Attacks
-------
Headbonk   - NR: 1   SR: 2   UR: 3
Action Com.  NR: 2   SR: 4   UR: 6
             Hit a enemy with an airborne head butt. Fire, Spiked and 
             ceiling-clinging enemies can/should not be hit. This attack is 
             basically Mario's Jump attack, but with side-by-side fighting
             this attack is like a shadow of Mario.

How to use: No hassle. Press A if you want to do an action command before
striking the chosen enemy.


Tattle     - NR:--   SR:--   UR:-- 
Action Com.  NR:--   SR:--   UR:--
             Tattle an enemies description, ranging from its HP, ATK, DEF and
             some helpful hints and weaknesses.

How to use: Automatic usage.
           
*Charge    - SR:--    UR:--       
Action Com.  SR:--    UR:--                 FP=1
             Add 1 attack point to the next attack, use more than 1 time to 
             add another attack point until attack is executed.

How to use: Automatic usage.

**Multibonk- UR: 1 
Action Com.  UR: ?-3                        FP=2
             Consecutively headbonk 1 enemy, damage goes down one point per 
             attack. E.g.., 3, 2/1, 1, 1 recurrent. This attack looks, so cool.

How to use: Press A before each impact to consecutively Headbonk the enemy.
Same properties as a Power Jump.






Kooper, the blue-shelled wonder (Koopa)
Specialty: Shell Toss, retrieve item/hit distant switches

Location: Koopa Village, Kooper's backyard, where the Fuzzy stole his shell.
          He joins you once you beat the small mini-game with the Fuzzy and
          its little friends.

Kooper is only used outside of battle to hit distant objects on ground level
retrieve coins or badges close by and hit enemies for a first strike. He has 
some of the best moves, and likes to hit distant switches too! In battle, he
sets Fire to his shell, and confuses enemies at will.

Attacks
--------
Shell Toss  -NR: 1   SR: 2   UR: 3
Action Com.  NR: 2   SR: 3   UR: 5
             Shell Toss, Kooper's default attack. Hits one enemy on ground
             with his shell, and immune to everything under his shell.

How to use: Push analogue stick to the left, and release when it reaches the
red star.

Power Shell -NR: 1   SR: 1   UR: 1
Action Com.  NR: 2   SR: 3   UR: 4
             Hit all enemies on ground with a single hit. Executing a action
             command will add 1/2/3 damage, depending on your rank.

How to use: Push analogue stick to the left, and release when it reaches the
red star.

*Dizzy Shell-SR:--   UR:--           
Action Com.  SR:--   UR:--                   FP=4
             Confuse all enemies. Chance of confusing depends on the amount
             the meter is filled during the execution process.

How to use: Repeatedly press A as fast as you can.

**Fire Shell-UR: 1
Action Com.  UR: 6                           FP=5
             Hit all enemies with a devastating fire attack, doing +2 damage
             to ice enemies. Also ranges in power, and is quite useful when
             battling a gang of Ice Piranha Plants.

How to use: Repeatedly push the analogue stick to the left as fast as you
can.





Bombette, the woman you don't want to get mad (Bob-omb)
Specialty: Explosion, crumbles walls and other things

Location: Koopa Bro. Fortress, jail cell, where all the Bob-omb prisoners 
          are held. Bombette joins your team after "falling" for the Yellow 
          Koopa's booby trap, once Mario plummets into the cell.

Bombette has some of the most powerful attacks, and on-field she uses her
explosion attack to break open cracked walls, and hit enemies (with very good
timing, for she is a slow walker) She also has a, as I call it, an self-
explosion button, once you press C-Down after pressing it to set her off.

Attacks
--------
Body Slam   -NR: 1   SR: 2   UR: 3
Action Com.  NR: 2   SR: 3   UR: 5
             Bombettes basic move. She slams her body onto a ground opponent
             and does a small amount of damage.

How to use: Hold A until the big red star lights up.


Bomb        -NR: 1   SR: 1   UR: 1
Action Com.  NR: <4  SR: <5  UR: <6      FP=3
             She flips shelled enemies, makes Clefts flip too, does some 
             great damage, but costs some FP. Only the front enemy gets hit.
             Power differs on how much you can press A.

How to use: Repeatedly press A as fast as you can.
           
*Power Bomb -SR: 1   UR: 1
Action Com.  SR: 6   UR: 7               FP=6
             Hit all enemies with a massive bomb attack, doesn't include 
             ceiling or flying enemies. 

How to use: Repeatedly press A as fast as you can.

**Ultra Bomb-UR: 1
Action Com.  UR: 7                       FP=8
             This move requires a heaping helping of FP, but hits every 
             enemy on the field regardless of their position. Also does the 
             same things to Clefts and Shelled-enemies like the Bomb/Power 
             Bomb.

How to use: Repeatedly press A as fast as you can.






Parakarry, the Flying Koopa (Paratroopa)
Specialty: Air Lift, fly over small gaps

Location: Found at Mt. Rugged, after agreeing to help him find some letters
          scattered on the mountain. When you found them all, he kindly sets
          off with Mario on his quest to Dry Dry Desert to save the next 
          Star Spirit.

Parakarry has one of the most useless abilities ever (and thatís speaking from
my point of view.) His ability lets Mario cross gaps he cannot reach with a
jump. Really, only used at Mt. Rugged, and barely used anywhere else, it is
quite sad. But his awesome attacks make up for it...and a plus side is his
attacks range from ground enemies to ceiling!

Attacks
-------
Sky Dive  -  NR: 1   SR: 2   UR: 4
Action Com.  NR: 2   SR: 3   UR: 5
             His basic attack, hits any enemy on the field. But still gets 
             hurts by spike/fire enemies...but it does some good damage. It's
             really only an airborne kick.

How to use: Press A when Parakarry is heading towards the enemy for a kick.

Shell Shot-  NR: --  SR: --  UR: --
Action Com.  NR: 5   SR: 6   UR: 7      FP=3
             Unfortunately, if you donít nail an action command for this 
             attack, it automatically does 0 damage. Able to hit any enemy, 
             but all you have to rely on is good timing. Parakarry hits one 
             enemy with a flying, speeding, shell attack.

How to use: Hold the analogue stick to the left, and release when the aim
in pointing at your target (it will be highlighted for you.)

*Air Lift -  SR: --   UR: --
Action Com.  SR: --   UR: --            FP=3
             Flies at an enemy and takes them away. Note you cannot use this
             on Bosses or Mini-bosses, and if it works, you do not receive 
             any Star Points. A downside, but if facing an enemy like an 
             Anti-Guy and you came unprepared, it may be quite useful.

How to use: Repeatedly press A as fast as you can.

**Air Raid-  UR: 2
Action Com.  UR: 6                      FP=6
             Hits every enemy onscreen with a extremely powerful attack, 
             this attack shows no mercy, and does some great damage, with a 
             very easy-to-pull-off action command.

How to use: Repeatedly push the analogue stick to the left as fast as you
can.






Bow, the shifty Ghost (Boo)
Specialty: Outta Sight, making Mario invisible

Location: Back at Bow's Mansion, she agrees to come after Bootler, her 
          Butler, thinks it will be ok. She accepts to join your team, but
          you really have no choice, for she is holding your most useful 
          Star Spirit, Skolar, captive.

Bow is a very mischievous character in Paper Mario, and has some very girly
attacks. Although that makes it sound pretty weak, Bow actually has some of
the best consecutive attacks, and defensive attacks too. From scaring her 
opponent to slapping them with a fan, she is definitely, in my opinion, the 
Queen of the Boo's. 

Attacks
-------
Smack      - NR: 1  SR: 1  UR: 1 
Action Com.  NR: +3 SR: +4 UR: +5
             Although those +'s and sound promising, this attack is merely
             useless again enemies with 1 or more defense points. This is her
             basic attack, and smacks your target up to 5 times at Ultra Rank.
             If the Action Command isnít executed properly, the damage you 
             cause will range from Rank to Action Com. Rank.

How to use: Repeatedly push the analogue stick to the left as fast as you
can.

Outta Sight- NR: --   SR: --   UR: --
Action Com.  NR: --   SR: --   UR: --      FP=2
             This attack basically is Bow's ability outside of battle, but as
             a battle move. It makes Mario invisible for one turn, but Bow 
             cannot attack next turn. If Bow uses her ability before Mario, 
             then Mario cannot attack, because being invisible, you really 
             can't touch the enemy, can you?

How to use: Automatic usage.

*Spook     - SR: --   UR: --
Action Com.  SR: --   UR: --               FP=3
             Spooks all enemies into running away from battle, basically like
             the Fright Jar, but instead of a giant Bowser shadow, its a very
             scary Bow. Doesn't work on enemies that are resistant, because 
             they either have no eyes or ears, or just are very brave.

How to use: Repeatedly push the analogue stick to the left as fast as you
can.

**Fan Smack- UR:  2
Action Com.  UR: x5                        FP=5
             Even with the damage of 10 points with a perfectly executed 
             action command, this still has it's downsides. Like shelled 
             enemies usually do less damage, clefts are awfully resistant to
             this, and that enemies with 2+ defense cannot be damaged.

How to use: Repeatedly push the analogue stick to the left as fast as you
can.






Watt, the little ray of Sunshine (???)
Specialty: Lighting up darkened areas / revealing hidden ? blocks

Location: Shy Guy's Toy Box, after freeing her from the evil grasp of the
          Lantern Ghost, she joins your team almost immediately.

Watt has some of the most useful attacks and one of the best specialties in
the game. With her light, in the most darkest of areas can be lit up so you
know where you are going. Also, her ability also lets you find hidden ? 
Blocks, probably using light reflection. Her attacks are also very useful,
for if you come across a enemy with 4 defense, and you can't seem to pierce
it, Watts attacks are all you need...

Attacks
-------
Electro Dash-NR: 1   SR: 1   UR: 1
Action Com.  NR: 3   SR: 4   UR: 5
             This attack actually pierces enemy defense! It's extremely 
             useful against Clefts, and it does some great damage too! And,
             unfortunately, because what may be only a little baby, this is
             her only attack. Notice the pacifier?

How to use: Hold A until big red star lights up.

Power Shock -NR: --  SR: --  UR: --
Action Com.  NR: --  SR: --  UR: --    FP=2
             Induces shock/electrify on an enemy, making it unable to move.
             This move depends on the action command, because if the bar is
             not full, the attack is basically useless. Useful against the
             Anti Guys, because they have a bad resistance to this ailment.

How to use: Repeatedly press A as fast as you can.

How to use:

*Turbo Charge-SR: --   UR: --
Action Com.  SR: --   UR: --          FP=3
             +1 to Mario's attack and defense. This comes in useful with
             some Badge attacks Mario gets throughout the game, such as the
             Power Bounce badge, or if you have a damage-reducing badge on.
             Even though +1 doesn't sound like much, its worth it. If used
             with the Charge Badges, this can be devastatingly powerful, 
             for even the toughest of bosses. 

How to use: Press A at the second each of the red stars, light up.

**Mega Shock-UR: --
Action Com.  UR: --                    FP=5
             This is just like Power Shock, but it hits every enemy with a
             status ailment. Unfortunately, the command is very hard, but 
             if done well still has a high chance of paralysis.

How to use: Press A+B at the same time as fast as you can.






Sushie, the talking fish (Cheep Cheep)
Specialty: Acts as a submarine, swimming over AND under water.

Location: Lavalava Island, after the Yoshis play Hide-and-seek will Mario, 
          without any choice, Sushie agrees to help you find them, and then
          becomes on your team ever more.

Sushieís ability lets you swim in water. But not any old water, the water 
must be accessible via a plank. Sushie lets you swim underwater, but only for
a limited time, and just lets you hover on top of the water. With Sushieís 
very useful attacks, Iíve created an amazing combo move, which let me defeat
one of the hardest bosses. 

Attacks
-------
Belly Flop  -NR: 1   SR: 2   UR: 3 
Action Com.  NR: 3   SR: 4   UR: 5         
             It's just like a cannonball in a swimming pool, but with no 
             water. Sushie slams the opponent with her stomach, causing up 
             to 5 points of damage to an enemy (without a defense.) It's 
             like a normal jump, but weaker.

How to use: Hold the analogue stick to the left until big red star lights up.

Squirt      -NR: 3   SR: 3   UR: 3
Action Com.  NR: 5   SR: 6   UR: 7         FP=3
             Sushie charges water in her body, and squirts it out like a 
             hose with a thin nozzle. Being water, does +2 to fire enemies, 
             and it is one of my most favorite moves.

How to use: Hold A, but not to the point she must take back all the water.

*Water Block-SR: --  UR:--
Action Com.  SR: --  UR:--                 FP=3
             Charges Mario's defense by some points. Lasts for an average of
             1-4 turns depending on what you got in the charge sequence 
             during the action command.

How to use: Press A the second each of the red stars light up.

**Tidal Wave-UR: 1
Action Com.  UR: >1                        FP=6
             This attack does some extremely devastating damage on every
             enemy exposed on the field, and does 1 and above damage. The
             highest damage I got, with an action command, was 12, but that 
             was when I got mad and started smashing the A, B and C-Down 
             buttons. Also being water based, +2 damage to fire enemies.

How to use: Press A, B and C-Down, according to what pops up on the screen.






Lakilester, the 'Cloud-rider' (Lakitu)
Specialty: Lets Mario hover over Lava, spikes and is a great taxi.

Location: Flower Fields, after battling Mario, Lakilester agrees that he 
          shall depart from Huff N. Puff, and come join Mario on his quest 
          to save Peach and all the Star Spirits.

Attacks
--------
Spiny Flip - NR:--  SR:--  UR:--
Action Com.  NR: 3  SR: 4  UR: 5
             Even without a wide range of power, this attack can prove 
             nice and powerful to enemies. This is Lakilester's basic attack
             and it sure makes you gloomy.

How to use: Move the cursor with the analogue stick until it is inline with
the enemies highlighted section. Press A for a quicker release time.

How to use: 

Spiny Surge- NR:--  SR:--  UR:--
Action Com.  NR: 2  SR: 3  UR: 4        FP=4
             This attack hits every enemy on the field with a surge of small
             Spinies. It hits every enemy on field, but has a very low range
             of damage.

How to use: Repeatedly push the analogue stick to the left as fast as you
can.

Cloud Nine - SR:--   UR:--
Action Com.  SR:--   UR:--              FP=4
             Shield Mario from enemy attacks in a thick cloud of fog. This
             proves extremely useful when used with the Pretty Lucky Badge,
             for Mario may even be untouchable, even with attacks that are
             usually sure to hit.

How to use: Press A the second each red star lights up.

Hurricane  - UR:--
Action Com.  UR:--                      FP=5
             Blows all enemies away on the field, but once again, Mario gets
             no Star Points. Basically like the Fright Jar and Bow's Spook,
             or even Parakarry's Air Lift, so this is really a 4th version 
             of something already we've seen.

How to use: Press A repeatedly as fast as you can

This is all about the optional things, side quests and some non-important
adventure related happenings.

Toad Town Tunnels

Before I start this Section, note that throughout each area I will copy the
map before the guide to help you. If you want to use the Master Map, just for
a quick overview of the tunnels and where everything leads including names
of areas, look at the Map just underneath this section.

This will basically show you, linked areas, named of areas, and some other
stuff. 

Wow, to think it seemed bigger...

                             4A   

The reason I put Area One above the guide is because this is your starter 
map for every Blooper Quest.
                             

==Toad Town Tunnels EE==

No, this is not a comedic tunnel. The Blooper is actually the Mario version
of a Squid/Octopus. If you just finished Chapter One, this first section now
is what you need.

The area you enter from in Toad Town, will always make you end up at Area 
One. So look at that map for some insights. Firstly, we wont be getting much
out of this part so head into Area 2 to you right by hammering the Yellow 
Block to the right.

==Toad Town Tunnels 2A==
Items: 
 Coin Block in 3rd BB to the left
 Invisible ? Block, in-between gap
Enemies: 
 Gloomba
---------------------

             Area 2A
                 
                    -------------------------------

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

In this Area of the Tunnels, you will meet the Gloomba, a very grey Goomba.
Basically a upgraded Goomba, you better be prepared. Defeat the Gloomba, and
head towards all those Brick Blocks. The third one from the left is a Coin
Block, so hit that, and the first one from the right has a Gloomba on it. 
The Gloomba is actually a Spike Goomba once you hit the Block, so defeat it
and head into the next area after hitting the Invisible ? Block between
the two Brick Blocks.

==Toad Town Tunnels 2B==

 Shrink Stomp Badge in Chest

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



This is where our journey for now is coming to a end. In this part of the 
tunnels, about two steps after the Pipe Pathway, the Blooper will challenge
you.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle: Blooper
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
HP: 30
ATK: Ink Squirt-3
     Spin Stomp-3
DEF: 0

The Blooper may look small, but it sure packs a punch. With a whopping 30
HP its already sounding intimidating. To beat this Blooper is basic. Have
a Jumping or Flying partner at your side, because this Blooper floats. Get
some FP ready, and Goombario at your side. Let Goombario keep on Jumping on
him, while Mario uses Power Bounce (which does about 10-15 damage.) Use your
Refresh Power when you run low on FP, and when the Blooper is weak enough 
for a final strike, just jump it.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Once you beat the Blooper, it spins back from the darkness of where it came
from. 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

When the Blooper is eliminated, head right for your first prize of the 
tunnels, a Shrink Stomp Badge. That finishes the Blooper section. See you
next Blooper!

Boss Battle: Electro Blooper
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

HP: 50
ATK: 4/+6 - when charging electricity
     Static Drill -6 (Pierces defense)
     Ink Squirt- 3
     
DEF: 0

Oh dear, this one has way more HP than our last Blooper, and it's way bigger
too! This is really the same strategy as the other Blooper, but this one has
a little spark to it. Whenever the Blooper starts to go static and looks 
like little sparks are coming out of its body, use Parakarry's Shell Shot
to stop the Blooper from attack you. The Electro Blooper is also immune to 
your new Lullaby power, and hammer ability. He still has his Ink Squirt, so
thatís pretty lame. If you fail to stop him from attacking you when charging,
his attack will pierce all defenses and do 6/5 damage.

...You won, why are you reading me? Celebrate!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the Blooper gets smooshed, hit the switch it drops to open three warp
pipes that take you to Goomba Village, Koopa Village and Dry Dry Outpost.

Hit that Grey Block more to your left, and enter the next area.

==Toad Town Tunnels, 3B==
Items: 
 Coin (2) in ? Blocks

Hit the ? Blocks for 2 coins and a Snowman Doll, and then head up onto the 
platforms heading up and jump off when your high enough to get to the other
ledge, and enter the warp pipe.

==Toad Town Tunnels, Secret Area 1==
Items:

This place leads to two Super Blocks, a chest AND a Star Piece. Unfortunately
you can't get the second Super Block, so everything else is up for grabs.

From where you are now, head to the room to your left, and defeat the two
Gloomba's in it. Hit the Brick Block to make the Spring come down, jump on 
it, and open the chest it leads to obtain Power Smash Badge. 

Head back an area, and ignore the warp pipe on the floor, for it leads to a
Super Block, but it's blocked by two Metal Blocks. Back at the area with the 
two platforms, jump on the first one and head to the edge, so that it drops 
and the two Gloomba's fall, so you don't have to battle. Start jumping up and
the platform so that it rises all the way up, and when your high enough, 
confident that you can jump to the ledge after the next platform, jump.

In the next area, go defeat the new Paragloomba enemy, which I listed in the
enemy list. Change your partner to Parakarry, jump on the rising platforms,
but before you hit the room jump north so you're on a squary ledge. Use 
Parakarryís ability until you reach the last ledge, and collect the Star 
Piece.

Head to the rising platforms, and let it take you to the roof, where there
is a secret corridor. Head to the other side until you come to a hole, and
jump into it. In this room, defeat the Paragloomba enemy, and hit the Super
Block to upgrade one of your partners. You only have Goombario to upgrade,
if you have been LISTENING TO ME, but if you have someone else re-read the
walkthrough. Head out of here through the warp pipe, then backtrack all the
way back to Toad Town, finishing this segment of the Toad Town Tunnels...
minus the Super Block but...JUST CONTINUE.

This room does contain a Super Block, but, how in the world, do we get there?
Now, this room would be hard for people without the partner, Watt, who you 
will be getting VERY soon. But, for your own pleasure, I'm going to tell you
how to get it...not like you need it though. Anyway, head down to where the
Blue Block is, and push it into the exact centre. Jump of the block, and aim
around it, soon enough a hidden block will appear. There are 3, so get those
to make a path. So far we don't need this block, so that's it for now.

==Toad Town Tunnels, Area One==

Basically, we'll be heading into the Super Block region. Basically, you must
head from Area One to 4A, then 4B, then 4C. So, head into the hole south of
the warp pipe, and head left two area's. Collect the Super Block after you
reveal the Invisible Blocks.

Collect the Super Block, and head back to 4A.

Now that we have Sushie, we can access the parts of the sewers beyond the 
waters. The symbol --> means where we are going to travel. Head to the small
pier, and use Sushie (C-Down) to head into the water. Travel to the right,
and when you get to the other side, the Blooper will appear, ready for some
combat.

Boss Battle: Super Blooper & Blooper Babies

Super Blooper
HP: 70   
ATK: Ink Squirt- 5/7
    Frustration- +2 Attack
    Mega Drill- 10+10
    Drill- 3
DEF:0

Blooper Baby/ies
HP: 6
ATK:2
DEF:0

Oh, my, god. It can't even fit on the screen! It took 6 Life Shrooms for me
to beat it, so I hope you have some better luck. Depending when you came 
down to battle this beast, is how hard he can get. With a whopping 70 HP, and
awesome attacks, you better be ready. Hammers won't work here, so you're 
doomed to jump.

This may take a while, so get comfy. Firstly, he spawns Blooper Babies, which
means he has little minions to attack us. Save some Star Power for a Star
Storm each time a swarm of them appear. The Blooper has no defense, but a 
mighty attack. For some reason, it still has it's Ink Squirt attack, so be 
ready to defend for that. I recommend having Sushie out at Super Rank, so we
can use her Water Block, to guard against the Blooper's powerful attacks, 
like it's Frustration attack, which does a amount of 7 damage. The Blooper 
Babies, however, are very threatening. They suckle on Mario like the Fuzzies,
and add it to their own, but they have 2 Attack instead of 1. But, on the
bright side, Chill Out works in this battle! So use that to lower the Blooper
of its attack power. Now, the Blooper's most annoying attack, the Mega Drill.
It hits Mario 2 times, with a damage ratio of 20! It pierces defense, and 
this is what led me to using 6 Life Shrooms. I can't give a way to defend
against that, other than a Damage Dodge and Chill Out defenses.

Use BOTH Water Block and Turbo Charge from Sushie and Watt, and this battle
MIGHT be a breeze, depending on what badges you equipped (which for me was a
lame Power Jump.) Bow is the star of this battle, for she smacks its HP away
while hiding Mario from the Mega Drill. Other than that, you should die a 
horrible,  horrible death, unless you know some more strategies.

Once the Blooper dies, a switch comes down allowing you to access Lavalava
Island.

And...that's it. If you want to keep going for Rip Cheato, feel free.

========================
Rip Cheato and his Items

Head to the room to the right from 4A, to 4AB.

you come across. Ignore the horribly high ? Block, and enter the next area.

Yes, I know the area codes are getting confusing, but it's all for a good 
reason. The Toad Town Tunnels are now revealing to you the places where they
can transport you, and where it leads to another world. The code 4AC1 means
4A, C Section, area 1. 

In here, lays the faithful Rip Cheato. He is somehow, maybe, related to 
Toad Town south's Chet Rippo, but we won't question the game designers. He
gives Mario mystery items, but makes him pay a lot for it. I'll just draw up
a little graph here...

Column 1 = Item Number, Column 2 = Coins, Column 3 = Item. 

Rip Cheato's Items

                                       Shrooms.

All up, you spend 640 coins.

Now, head up the ledges, and use Lakilester to glide over the spikes into
a secret area via the warp pipe.

==Toad Town Tunnels, Secret Area==   (Iím not mapping this place, too hard.)
Items:
 Coin in ? Block
 Coin in high ? Block
 Life Shroom in invisible ? Block between the 2 Brick Block and ? Block clusters
 Coin in high ? Block
 Maple Syrup in invisible ? Block left of warp pipe
Enemies:
 Spiny, Dark Koopa

Get the Maple Syrup in the invisible ? Block to the left of the warp pipe, 
and head across the path, defeating all the Spinies in your way. Hit the ? 
Block for a Coin, and the Grey Block to the next area.

Head left, ignore all ? Blocks, but defeat the Dark Koopas.

Hit the Brick Block to make the spring come down, and head off the high wall.
Open the chest, for the ULTRA BOOTS! Yes, with these boots, we can finally
hit those hard-to-reach ? Blocks, and Brick Blocks! Head back right, and use
your new, Tornado Jump ability, to smash the Brick Block so you can access
the spring. Now, read on the walkthrough (collect all the high up ? Blocks
in Toad Town Tunnels before you leave though.)

Wow. Toad Town Tunnels, FINISHED!

        reward.

Reward: 1 Coin (The wallet was empty, how did he get that coin?)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Playroom
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Located: Toad Town Train Station, warp pipe. Hit tree near the northern 
entry/exit.

This is the playroom. In the playroom you can earn instant coins if your 
lucky, and get rich quick! 

==Jump Attack==

Game Options
----------------  
9, 7, 5 Block Games, totally optional. 

Standard Set Out
----------------
9 Block Challenge
11 Blocks,  5 coin panels - 3
            1 coin panels - 4
           x5 coin panels - 2
            Bowser panels - 2
                  
7 Block Challenge
09 Blocks,  5 coin panels - 3
            1 coin panels - 4
           x5 coin panels - 2
            Bowser panels - 2

5 Block Challenge
07 Blocks,  5 coin panels - 3
            1 coin panels - 4
           x5 coin panels - 2
            Bowser panels - 2               
           

In the Jump attack room, you have either 9, 7, or 5 options of Brick Block
games you can choose from. The way this game works, is that when you hit a 
block, a panel comes out. That panel can be a 1 coin, a 5 coin, a x5, or a
Bowser panel. Bowser panels instantly end your game, so be careful of those.
The maximum amount of coins you can earn in this game is a whopping 950! But
to get that you must get 5 5 5 1 1 1 1 x5 x5 to get it, it's merely very
unlikely you will get it. But because I am familiar with game cheats, I get
rich quick here. You'll never see me with less than 100 coins ever again.
And note, the order MUST BE 5, 5, 5, 1, 1, 1, 1, x5 x5 to get 950 coins.

The difference in the games is that you get less shots at the blocks than the
higher ones. So if you pick the 9 block challenge, out of the 11 blocks, you
can hit 9, then the 7 block challenge, you only hit 7, and 5 block challenge,
you only hit 5.


==Smash Attack==

Game Options
------------
Non-optional.

Standard Set Out
-----------------
10 Peach Blocks
The rest of the blocks are Bob-omb, empty or Fuzzy Blocks

This game, Iíd say, is the harder of the two. Basically, threes a heaping of
blocks set out, and 10 of them contain a Peach. The total of coins you get
is 300, and is determined on how much time you have left. So if you have 
7.6 seconds left after getting 10 Peach Blocks, you get 76 coins. 

You start with 30 seconds, and in that 30 seconds, you must hit all the Peach
Blocks, before time runs out. The Peach Blocks usually pop out occasionally 
for your own needs, but if you hit a Bob-omb, you're temporarily paralyzed, 
and if you hit a Fuzzy, you must shake it off by pressing A rapidly. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Post Man Mario
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Throughout the game, Mario recieves letters around Mushroom Kingdom, to be
delivered around to people. These are seperated into two groups:
 Chain Letters
 One-Way

The chain letters are letters that are received after delivering a letter, so
in other words, after you give someone their letter they give you one, and
so on. 
The One-way letters are for one person only.

Here is an easy way to understand what i'm saying. It shows the letter, the
location (not exact, look in walkthrough for exact), who it is for, and what
you get out of it.

One-way letters:

      Letter               From                To              Item
     --------             ------              -----           ------
   First Letter  -->    Mt. Rugged    -->    Merlon     -->  Star Piece
  Second Letter  -->    Mt. Rugged    -->   Kolorado    -->  Star Piece
   Third Letter  -->  Dry Dry Desert  -->    Mort T.    -->  Star Piece
  Fourth Letter  -->  Dry Dry Outpost --> Nomandimouse  -->  Star Piece
   Fifth Letter  -->  Dry Dry Desert  -->    Goompa     -->  Star Piece
   Sixth Letter  -->    Gusty Gulch   -->    Fice T.    -->  Star Piece
 Seventh Letter  -->  Lavalava Island -->     Igor      -->  Star Piece
   Eigth Letter  -->  Lavalava Island -->    Russ T.    -->  Star Piece
   Ninth Letter  -->   Flower Fields  -->    Minh T.    -->  Star Piece
   Tenth Letter  --> Shiver Snowfield --> Mayor penguin -->  Star Piece
Eleventh Letter  --> Shiver Snowfield -->    Merlow     -->  Star Piece


Chain Letter:

        Letter              From             To                   Item
       --------            ------           -----                ------
     First Letter  -->  Mt. Rugged    -->  Goompapa    -->    Second Letter
    Second Letter  -->   Goompapa     -->   Muss T.    -->     Third Letter
     Third Letter  -->    Muss T.     -->   Koover     -->    Fourth Letter
    Fourth Letter  -->     Koover     -->   Fishmael   -->     Fifth Letter
     Fifth Letter  -->    Fishmael    -->   Koover     -->     Sixth Letter
     Sixth Letter  -->    Koover      -->   Mr. E      -->   Seventh Letter
   Seventh Letter  -->     Mr. E      -->   Miss T.    -->     Eigth Letter
     Eigth Letter  -->    Miss T.     --> Little Mouser-->     Ninth Letter
     Ninth Letter  -->  Little Mouser -->   Franky     -->     Tenth Letter
     Tenth Letter  -->     Franky     --> Red Yoshi Kid-->  Eleventh Letter
  Eleventh Letter  -->  Red Yoshi Kid -->   Dane T.    -->    Twelth Letter
    Twelth Letter  -->    Dane T.     -->   Frost T.   -->Thirteenth Letter
Thirteenth Letter  -->    Frost T.    -->   Goompapa   --> Lucky Day Badge

And there you have it. Most of the locations of the people are written on the
letters, so i'm not writing their locations.

Enemies
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In this section, I will list the enemy, and then right a description on how
to defeat them. Also, I will write what Goombario describes them as.

The order they are in is the order I wrote them in my walkthrough, so you can
come down here and think of where you are, and then you'll find your enemy.
Plus for easier use, I put a * before each name, so that if you have trouble 
finding it, type <*<enemy> to find it.

Oh, and I took some liberty on fixing some of Goombario's bad grammar and 
punctuation, for those who aren't used to. . . slang

They're Bowser's followers. Max HP: 4, Attack Power: 1, Defense Power: 1 
Their shells are hard. If you can flip them over, their defense power will 
fall to 0 and it will become much easier for you to defeat them. You can flip 
them with a POW Block or a Jump attack.."

Koopa Troopas with wings. Max HP: 4, Attack Power: 1, Defense Power: 1. When 
you jump on them or use a POW Block, their wings fall off and they become 
normal Koopa Troopas. It's easy to beat them once they're normal Koopa 
Troopas. Give them another Jump attack! They think they're pretty cool 
because they wear sunglasses, but they're not that tough."

Goombario's Log: "This is a Bob-omb. Bob-ombs are pretty temperamental, and 
they get steaming mad when you attack them. Max HP: 3, Attack Power: 1, 
Defense Power: 0. You'd better not jump on them when they're angry or they'll
blow up in your face. In fact, stay away entirely. Attack them from a distance
with items like Hammers. Or you could send in other things, like shells. If 
they attack when angry, they'll charge in and explode. So you'd better take 
care of them before they blow."

big time mischief makers. Max HP: 3, Attack Power: 2, Defense Power: 0. Ugh.

About the enemy: Fire Hazard   - Hurts to jump on.
                 Water Weakness- Weak against water/ice.

Goombario's Log: "This is a Lava Bubble, a fire ball monster. Lava Bubbles
live near lava. Max HP: 9, Attack Power: 4, Defense Power: 0. They are 
obviously pretty hot, so you'll get hurt if you try to jump on them. They
sometimes attack your friends (like me!), too. The power of that attack is 2.
Because of their fiery nature, they fear snow and water."



*R Magikoopa
 Life   -11
 Attack -3
 Defense-0

First Location: Mt. Lavalava.

About the enemy: Attack UP- Increases attack of other enemies.
                 Flying   - Flying ruins Hammer and Quake abilities.

Goombario's Log: "This is a Red Magikoopa. He's one of the magicians in the
Koopa clan. Snappy red robes, huh? Max HP: 11, Attack Power: 3, Defense
Power: 0. He can magically increase the attack power of others. Take care of
him before he can pump up his companions!"



*Crazee Dayzee
 Life   -8
 Attack -4
 Defense-0

First Location: Flower Fields.

About the enemy: Run Away- Runs away when low on HP
                 Sleep   - Makes Mario fall asleep when it attacks

Goombario's Log: "This is a Crazee Dayzee. Crazee Dayzees look cute, but you
won't think they're so cute after they attack you! Max HP: 8, Attack Power: 4
Defense Power: 0. They attack by singing a song. If you fall under the song's
spell, you'll fall asleep. If you get their HP low enough, they'll try to run
away. Beat them quickly so they can't flee."



*Green Monty Mole
 Life   -12
 Attack -3
 Defense-0

First Location: Flower Fields, Petunia's Garden.

About the enemy: --

Goombario's Log: "This is a Monty Mole. You remember Monty Moles from Mt.
Rugged, don't you? Max HP: 12, Attack Power: 3, Defense Power: 0. They're 
vicious rock-throwers. They may look intimidating, but they're not very 
strong."



*Ruff Puff
 Life   -10
 Attack -4
 Defense-0

First Location: Flower Fields.

About the enemy: Flying- Flying ruins Hammer and Quake abilities.

Goombario's Log: "This is a Ruff Puff. Ruff Puffs are nasty little cloud
henchmen of Huff N. Puff. Max HP: 10, Attack Power: 4, Defense Power: 0. Ruff
Puffs float in the air, so a Jump Attack or something similar may be best. Of
course, Iíd be more than happy to give them a Headbonk! It's your call, 
Mario."



*Amazy Dayzee
 Life   -20
 Attack -20
 Defense-1

First Location: Flower Fields.

About the enemy: Run Away- Runs away almost instantly

Goombario's Log: "This is an Amazy Dayzee. Amazy Dayzees are so rare, that 
they're also called the Legendary Crazee Dayzees. Max HP: 20, Attack Power:
20, Defense Power: 1.T These guys almost always flee at their first chance. 
It would be nice to beat one, but be careful! Their attacks pack a powerful
punch!"



*Spiny
 Life   -5
 Attack -4
 Defense-3

First Location: Flower Fields.

About the enemy: Enemy Flip- Flips over when quaked on.

Goombario's Log: "This is a Spiny. Spinies have spikes on their shells that
are pretty sharp. Max HP: 5, Attack Power: 4, Defense Power: 3. They'll roll
into Spiny Eggs and slam into you. It'll be must easier to fight them if you
can flip them over. Their defense power falls to 0."



*Lakitu
 Life   -12
 Attack -3
 Defense-0

First Location: Flower Fields, Garden Maze.

About the enemy: Flying      - Flying ruins Hammer and Quake abilities.
                 Spike Hazard- Hurts to Jump on when Spiny is above them.

Goombario's Log: "This is a Lakitu. Lakitus are strange Koopas that can ride
clouds. Max HP: 12, Attack Power: 3, Defense Power: 0. They toss down Spiny
Eggs, and these sometimes turn into crawling Spinies. We'd better deal with
them quickly or else we'll be surrounded by Spinies. It seems like these
Lakitus have been hassling you for your entire career, Mario."



*GRN Magikoopa

                 Defense Up- Increases the defense of other enemies.

Goombario's Log: "This is a Green Magikoopa. He's one of the magicians in the
Koopa clan. I have to admit, I like those green robes. Very Cool! Max HP: 11,
Attack Power: 3, Defense Power: 0. He can magically increase the defense

Goombario's Log: "This is a Yellow Magikoopa. He's one of the magicians in
the Koopa Clan. Yellow is the new black, didn't you know? Max HP: 11, Attack
Power: 3, Defense Power: 0. He can use magic to give his companions an
electric charge. While his cohorts are electrified, don't attack them 
directly or you'll be in for a shocking surprise."



*Frost Piranha
 Life   -10
 Attack -4
 Defense-0

First Location: Shiver Snowfield.

About the enemy: Immunity- Immune to ice damage.
                 Freeze  - Freezes Mario with cold breath.

Goombario's Log: "This is a Frost Piranha. Frost Piranhas are frozen Piranha
Plants. Max HP: 10, Attack Power: 4, Defense Power: 0. They'll try to freeze
you with their icy breath. You'll be at their mercy if they freeze you, so 
you'd better try to immobilize them right away. Ice attacks won't work--they
love ice! Fire attacks, though..."



*Gulpit
 Life   -12
 Attack -2>7
 Defense-0

First Location: Shiver Snowfield.

About the enemy: Varied Attack- Attack varies among situation.

Goombario's Log: "This is a Gulpit. Whoa! Gulpits look pretty burly, don't
they? Max HP: 12, Attack Power: 2, Defense Power: 0. Gulpits attack by 
picking rocks up in their mouths and then spitting them back out. The bigger
the rock they spit, the more damage you'll take. Big rocks take 7HP in damage
and small ones take 5HP. They can't do much damage without ammo, so you 
should concentrate on the rocks first."



*White Clubba
 Life   -12
 Attack -4/6
 Defense-0

First Location: Shiver Mountain.

About the enemy: Consecutive Attack- Attacks repeatedly.
                 Immunity          - Immune to ice damage.

Goombario's Log: "This is a White Clubba. They live in cold climates. Who
knows why they moved here....Max HP: 12, Attack Power: 5, Defense Power: 0. 
They sometimes attack consecutively. They're pretty powerful. It's tough to
swing such big clubs! Ice attacks won't work on them, so break out fire if
you have it."



*Swoopula
 Life   -8
 Attack -2
 Defense-0

First Location: Crystal Palace.

About the enemy: Ceiling - Cannot be reached with ground attacks.
                 HP Drain- Suckles on Mario's life until action command...ed.

Goombario's Log: "This is a Swoopula. Swoopulas attack from the air and cling
to you to suck your HP. Max HP: 8, Attack Power: 2, Defense Power: 0. Hit 'A'
repeatedly to fight it off or else it'll keep sucking your HP. You can't jump
high enough to attack them while they're hanging from the ceiling. An 
earthquake attack ought to work, though. Flying part members, like Bow or
Parakarry, can also attack them with ease. If they fall and begin to flap
around, you can attack them by jumping as well."



*GRY Magikoopa
 Life   -11
 Attack -3
 Defense-0

First Location: Crystal Palace

About the enemy: Transparency- Makes foes transparent.

Goombario's Log: "This is a Gray Magikoopa. He's one of the magicians in the
Koopa clan. The gray robes aren't very flashy, but they're kind of cool.
Max HP: 11, Attack Power: 3, Defense Power: 0. He can use magic to make his
companions transparent. We can't attack enemies that are transparent. Let's
try to beat them before that becomes an issue, what do you say?"



*Ember
 Life   -10
 Attack -4
 Defense-0

First Location: Star Road.

About the enemy: Fire Hazard- Hurts to jump on.

Goombario's Log: "This is an Ember. Embers are fiery monsters forged from 
uncanny blue fire. Max HP: 10, Attack Power: 4, Defense Power: 0. They may 
look frosty, but they're actually on fire, so fire attacks won't work. They 
divide themselves when they're attacked. Keep attacking them, though. You'll 
get them eventually. They'll probably fight back. Their attacks usually deal 
out 3 damage points. Water attacks will work well. Let's beat them before 
they get a chance to burn us."



*Magikoopa
 Life   -11
 Attack -6
 Defense-0

First Location: Bowser's Castle

About the enemy: Heal           - Heals all partners and itself with 3 HP,
                                  and itself with 5 HP.
                 Defense UP     - Powers up ally defense.
                 Attack UP      - Powers up ally attack.
                 Transparency   - Makes allies transparent.
                 Electric Charge- Charges an electrical flow in allies.
                 Flying Broom   - Flying, jump on to dismount them.
                 Run away       - Runs away when threatened alone.

Goombario's Log: "This is a Magikoopa. Magikoopas are the elite magicians of 
the Koopa clan. Max HP: 11, Attack Power: 6, Defense Power: 0. Tread 
carefully, Mario! Their magical attacks pack a serious punch! They know many 
nasty spells. We'd better beat them before they can do anything crazy."



*Bombshell Bill
 Life   -3
 Attack -6
 Defense-0

First Location: Bowser's Castle.

About the enemy: Sacrifice- Attack automatically kills itself.

Goombario's Log: "This is a Bombshell Bill. Bombshell Bills have such 
beautiful gold casings! Of course, if you sit and admire them, you'll get 
hit. Max HP: 3, Attack Power: 6, Defense Power: 0 Pay attention to their HP, 
because their explosions get bigger as their HP drops. Let's take them out 
before they get near us."



*B. Bill Blasters
 Life   -10
 Attack -0
 Defense-4

First Location: Bowser's Castle.

About the enemy: Enemy Summon- Summons Bombshell Bills to attack Mario.

Goombario's Log: "This is a B. Bill Blaster. B. Bill Blasters shoot a 
constant stream of Bombshell Bills. Max HP: 10, Defense Power: 4 They won't 
attack you directly. They're pretty resilient. You have to keep attacking 
them, though, otherwise the air will be filled with Bombshell Bills. And 
nobody wants that."



*Dry Bones
 Life   -8
 Attack -4
 Defense-2

First Location: Bowser's Castle.

About the enemy: Resurrection  - Comes back from the dead.
                 X Resurrection- Fire permanently destroys them.

Goombario's Log: "This is a Dry Bones. Dry Bones are skeletal remains from
Koopa Troopas. Max HP: 8, Attack Power: 4, Defense Power: 2. Just when you
think they're beat, these guys rise back up and attack again! You're going to
have to beat them all at once. Or you could use fire attacks. If they become
ashes, there's no way they'll recover."



*Bony Beetle
 Life   -8
 Attack -3
 Defense-4

First Location: Bowser's Castle

About the enemy: Enemy Flip- Jump on when spikes retracted to flip them over.

Goombario's Log: "It's a Bony Beetle. They're bony Buzzy Beetles...Hence the
name. Max HP: 8, Attack Power: 3, Defense Power: 4. It's touch to damage
them. When their spikes are out, their attack power is 5. When they retract
their spikes, take the opportunity to flip them over. After that, beating
them will be a breeze."

Part Two: Bosses and Mini-Bosses (Copied Strategy From Walkthrough)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
In this section, I grouped some people, so if they appeared more than once,
they'd most likely be together one after the other e.g.. Jr. Trooper 1, 2...
Bosses that aren't part of the storyline, like the Bloopers, Master or Kent
C. Koopa, are at the top of the walkthrough, in the order mentioned in my
walkthrough, also Bowser is there, if you need him.

For this particular section I list a Boss/Mini-Boss like so:

*<Boss/Mini-Bosses Name>
 Life   -
 Attack - <Some will have more than 1>
 Defense-

Location: < Where you meet the Boss/Mini-Boss >

Strategy: < A basic and easy guide on how to beat it >

*Bowser - First Encounter
 Life   -10
 Attack -Slash- 1/2
         Flamethrower- 9/10
 Defense-0/1

Location: Peach's Castle, before the game began.

Strategy: Basically, just Jump on him. I'm not even going to do a strategy 
for him, threes no point for you will lose no matter what, and if you do 
win, your game will wreck. So let him defeat you after several jump attacks.

Goombario's Log: Not available



*Bowser - Second Encounter
 Life   -50
 Attack -Slash- 6
         Flamethrower- 6
         Light Blast- 2
         Heal- 20 HP
 Defense-1/4 with Star Rod's help

Location: Peach's Castle, in Chapter 8.

Strategy: Now, if you chose to ignore my badge list and made some charging 
implements, you are doomed. Bowser's Light Blast will destroy those of the 
attack you have been charging. Don't waste your time on him, don't use any 
items, and remember to use Star Beam when he uses his rod.

Goombario's Log: "It's the Evil King Bowser! Finally, after all this time! 
Max HP: 50, Defense Power: 1. He has a huge arsenal of attacks, from blowing 
clouds of fire to jumping on us. Fire Attack: 8, Stamp Attack/Nail Attack: 6. 
I'm sure he has other attacks that I don't know. Boy, does he look nasty! 
He's strong enough as it is, but I'm sure he can use that Star Rod to 
increase his power until he's nearly invincible. Princess Peach needs us! 
Let's take him, Mario!"



*Bowser - Final Encounter
 Life   -99
 Attack -Slash- 8/16
         Foot Stomp- 8/16 - Command Loss
         Light Blast- 10/20 
         Flamethrower- 10/20
         Heal- 30 HP
 Defense-1/invincible with Star Rod

Location: Highest point of Peach's Castle.

Strategy:

Goombario's Log: "It's the Evil King Bowser! Uh... I think he got bigger. 
That's not a good sign... Max HP: 99, Defense Power: 2. He has a huge arsenal 
of attacks, from blowing clouds of fire to jumping on us. Fire Attack: 10, 
Stamp Attack/Nail Attack: 8 I'm sure he has other attacks that I don't know. 
Kammy Koopa's mysterious device has somehow beefed up his power even more. 
That's hardly fair! You should use that Star Beam whenever he uses the Star 
Rod to increase his power. Oh, you already knew that?"

After the short scene of which Mario gets Peach Beam:
"It's the evil King Bowser! No more messing around! Max HP: 99, Defense
Power: 2. He has a huge arsenal of attacks, from blowing clouds of fire to
jumping on us. Fire Attack: 10, Stamp Attack/Nail Attack: 8. I'm sure he has
other attacks that I don't know. When he increases his power with the Star
Rod, our attacks will be totally useless. When that happens, you must use
our ultimate weapon, the Peach Beam! It has the power of everyone's wishes!
This is our time, Mario! Let's take this chump! We're coming, Princess!"



*Jr. Troopa - First Encounter
 Life   -5
 Attack -Jump- 1/2
 Defense-0

Location: Under the Village, left.

Strategy: Firstly, doesn't matter what attack you use, so just Hammer or 
Jump on him at will. This battle is won no matter what for there really is 
no way to lose...unless you do nothing for about 10 turns, but thats just 
plainly weird. After some jumping, he powers himself up, so his attacks go 
up by 1. Doesn't make a difference.

Goombario's Log: Not available 



*Jr. Troopa - Second Encounter
 Life   -15
 Attack -2
 Defense-1

Location: Path to Koopa Bros. Fortress, facing Toad Town.

Strategy: With his new set of eyes, the rascal realizes he can use his shell
as a weak shield! With 5 more HP than last time, he doesn't make me tremble.
This is a easy battle, just use Bombette's Bomb while you unleash some Power
Jumps. If you don't have Power Jump equipped, don't worry, just Hammer him 
to his demise. 

Goombario's Log: "What was his name? Jr. Troopa? I don't remember exactly... 
...Just joking, kid! Max HP: 15, Attack Power: 2, Defense Power: 1. He looks 
so adorable hiding in his egg, doesn't he? So cute! It should be a snap to 
beat him now...I think."



*Jr. Troopa - Third Encounter
 Life   -40
 Attack -Skydive Kick- 5
 Defense-1

Location: Forever Forest, after getting Skolar back.

Strategy: This guy is even MORE annoying. Luckily, you have STAR STORM! So 
use that as soon as possible. Keep Power Bouncing, Power Jumping and 
Shell-bashing him to his death. His skydive kick isn't anything to worry 
about, plus I bet him with a few attacks from Mario while Goombario charged 
in the sidelines. Maybe you can do that too.

Goombario's Log: "It's Jr. Troopa. I can't get enough of this guy! Waa ha ha
ha! Did the little guy get lost in the big, bad forest? Max HP: 40, Attack
Power: 5, Defense Power: 1. Apparently he's grown wings, so he can fly now.
You'll have to jump to reach him. He's a bit stronger, so it may be worth it
to use any items you have to attack him."



*Jr. Troopa - Fourth Encounter
 Life   -40<20
 Attack -6
 Defense-1

Location: Toad Town Port.

Strategy: From all the swimming he just did, he's as tired as a overweight 
hamster on a wheel. Unfortunately, to even things out, he now is a 
un-hammerable, spike headed, charged up annoying little Troopa. He has a 
spike, so you can't Jump on him. A good strategy, is to equip the Group 
Focus, Deep Focus, and Spike Shield badges. That way, you can make your 
partner charge for a Star Storm, while you attack him with your jumping...or
just 4 Shell Shots from Parakarry...whatever suits you best.

Goombario's Log: "It's Jr. Troopa! He swam all the way after us! This kid...
he's got guts! Max HP: 40, Attack Power: 6, Defense Power: 1. He still flies
but now he has a spike on his head. It'll hurt if you jump on him. He seems
tougher this time...Luckily for us, he also looks pretty tuckered out. Well,
he should be tired. The little guy swan to Lavalava Island and back! It seems
better to attack from a distance with an item or something, rather than
attack him directly."



*Jr. Troopa - Fifth Encounter
 Life   -50
 Attack -8
 Defense-1

Location: Shiver Snowfield.

Strategy: With some faith, trust, and red boots, we can win. He has a magical
attack now of 8, so be careful. There is one extrememly easy way to defeat 
him. Equip All or Nothing and a Mega Smash badge, and Mega Smash him 10 
times. But if you don't have that equipped right now, jump him. 
Jump him a lot. Use Goombario's new Multibonk, and this will be easy. Power 
Bounce is way easier to execute now, with your new boots, so make sure to 
equip that.

Goombario's Log: "It's Jr. Troopa! I'm stunned! Really! This guy just will 
not quit! Max HP: 50, Attack Power: 8, Defense Power: 1. He's obviously been
training. It seems he can use magic now. Sigh... Let's get this over with."



*Jr. Troopa - Sixth Encounter
 Life   -60
 Attack - Head butt- 8
          Spike Charge- 9
 Defense-2

Location: Bowser's Castle.

Strategy: I say, with that attack to think he'd at least grown a LITTLE 
muscle. He is very easy to beat, actually. This was my exact doing, I Super 
Jump Charged, Tattled, then defended. I did that another two times, including
Goombario's Charge alongside me, and then, I unleashed Power Bounce + 
Multibonk. He ended up with 2 HP, and I Jumped him with the aid of Spike 
Shield. It's as easy as that.

Goombario's Log: "It's Jr. Troopa again! My man! The little guy still has 
some egg shell left on his body! Aww! Max HP: 60, Attack Power: 8, Defense 
Power: 2. Whoa! He's been working out! He looks as though he may be able to 
change his shape, too. You've got to love this guy's effort, Mario. To follow
us all the way here? What dedication! Come to think of it, how do you think 
he got here, anyway?"



*Blooper
 Life   -30
 Attack -Ink Squirt-3
         Spin Stomp-3
 Defense-0

First Location: Toad Town Tunnels, 2B.

Strategy: The Blooper may look small, but it sure packs a punch. With a 
whopping 30 HP its already sounding intimidating. To beat this Blooper is 
basic. Have a Jumping or Flying partner at your side, because this Blooper 
floats. Get some FP ready, and Goombario at your side. Let Goombario keep on 
Jumping on him, while Mario uses Power Bounce (which does about 10-15 
damage.) Use your Refresh Power when you run low on FP, and when the Blooper 
is weak enough for a final strike, just jump it.

Goombario's Log: "This is a Blooper. Bloopers lurk in the dank pools of Toad 
Town Tunnels. Max HP: 30, Attack Power: 3, Defense Power: 0. They seem pretty
unremarkable. Although... You have to wonder how they float in the air like 
that..."



*Electro Blooper
 Life   -50
 Attack -4/+6 - when charging electricity
         Static Drill -6 (Pierces defense)
         Ink Squirt- 3
 Defense-0

First Location: Toad Town Tunnels, 3A.

Strategy: Oh dear, this one has way more HP than our last Blooper, and it's 
way bigger too! This is really the same strategy as the other Blooper, but 
this one has a little spark to it. Whenever the Blooper starts to go static 
and looks like little sparks are coming out of its body, use Parakarry's 
Shell Shot to stop the Blooper from attack you. The Electro Blooper is also 
immune to your new Lullaby power, and hammer ability. He still has his Ink 
Squirt, so thats pretty lame. If you fail to stop him from attacking you when
charging, his attack will pierce all defenses and do 6/5 damage.

Goombario's Log: "This is an Electro Blooper. Electro Bloopers are 
electro-charged. Max HP: 50, Attack Power: 4, Defense Power: 0. A bit of 
advice: When they're emitting electricity, it'd be a smart move to avoid 
contact with them. If you can manage to damage them while they're emitting 
electricity, they'll go back to normal. Their attack power when they're 
emitting electricity is 6. Let's try to be careful, what do you say."




*Super Blooper & Blooper Babies (longest strategy ever)
Super Blooper
 Life   -70
 Attack -5
 Defense-0

Blooper Babies
 Life   -6
 Attack -2
 Defense-0

First Location: Toad Town Tunnels, 4A.

Strategy: Oh, my, god. It can't even fit on the screen! It took 6 Life 
Shrooms for me to beat it, so I hope you have some better luck. Depending 
when you came down to battle this beast, is how hard he can get. With a 
whopping 70 HP, and awesome attacks, you better be ready. Hammers won't work 
here, so you're doomed to jump.

This may take a while, so get comfy. Firstly, he spawns Blooper Babies, which
means he has little minions to attack us. Save some Star Power for a Star
Storm each time a swarm of them appear. The Blooper has no defense, but a 
mighty attack. For some reason, it still has it's Ink Squirt attack, so be 
ready to defend for that. I recommend having Sushie out at Super Rank, so we
can use her Water Block, to guard against the Blooper's powerful attacks, 
like it's Frustration attack, which does a amount of 7 damage. The Blooper 
Babies, however, are very threatening. They suckle on Mario like the Fuzzies,
and add it to their own, but they have 2 Attack instead of 1. But, on the
bright side, Chill Out works in this battle! So use that to lower the Blooper
of its attack power. Now, the Blooper's most annoying attack, the Mega Drill.
It hits Mario 2 times, with a damage ratio of 20! It pierces defense, and 
this is what led me to using 6 Life Shrooms. I can't give a way to defend
against that, other than a Damage Dodge and Chill Out defense.

Use BOTH Water Block and Turbo Charge from Sushie and Watt, and this battle
MIGHT be a breeze, depending on what badges you equipped (which for me was a
lame Power Jump.) Bow is the star of this battle, for she smacks its HP away
while hiding Mario from the Mega Drill. Other than that, you should die a 
horrible horrible death, unless you're incredibly under leveled.

Goombario's Log: "This is a Super Blooper. Whoa! It's huge! Easily the 
biggest Blooper ever! Max HP: 70, Attack Power: 5, Defense Power: 0 Trust me,
its size doesn't lie. It's pretty powerful. When it gets mad, it turns red 
and its power goes way up. And sometimes it spawns Blooper Babies. Buckle 
down, Mario! We're in for a fight."

"This is a Blooper Baby. Super Blooper spits them out and they come to drain
you. Max HP: 6, Attack Power: 2, Defense Power: 0. We need to beat them 
quickly so they can't drain us dry. They're so cute, though!"



*Kent C. Koopa
 Life   -70
 Attack -Shell Squasher- 3
 Defense-When Standing up- 6
         Lying down (stomach)- 3
         Lying down (tail)- 0

Location: Pleasant Path, soon after Chapter 4, or 5...never checked.

Strategy: Ok, basic strategy. Mega Quakes penetrate his defense, so use that 
in an emergency. You can flip him by jumping on him WITH a command, but 
before that put him to sleep (he has a weakness, according to the Koopas in 
Koopa Village), charge with Super Jump Charge, and Power Bounce HIS TAIL! His
tail has 0 defense and still contributes to major damage, but his stomach has
3. Pretty basic...but remember, his defense standing up is bizarre, so 
remember to Jump on the Koopa. Beware his Shell Squasher, though, because it 
attack Mario AND your partner. Now, another way to defeat him, is to flip him
over with a action commanded Sleep Stomp, so he stays in his shell for 5 
turns. While that happens, charge Goombario's and Mario's attack, then
unleash Power Bounce and Multibonk before he gets up. Simple!

Goombario's Log: "This is Kent C. Koopa. He seems pretty greedy for such a 
large Koopa. Max HP: 70, Attack Power: 10, Defense Power: 6 He sometimes does
a stamp attack with his shell. That attack has a power of 3. His shell attack
also damages party members (like me!), so be sure to defend! As with all 
Koopas, your chances will greatly improve if you can flip him over. His 
defense power will drop. Watch it, though! He'll attack as soon as he's back 
on his feet. And by the way, is he not THE HUGEST KOOPA EVER!?! Somebody told
me that he used to live in Koopa Village..."



*Chan
 Life   -15
 Attack -2
 Defencs-2

Location: The Dojo.

Strategy: If you where like me, and leaving this battle 'till later in the 
game, say, just before you left to the Star Road, you'd notice his utter weak
status. He is like a Buzzy Beetle, so treat him like one, and this battle 
will be a breeze.

Goombario's Log: "This is Chan, of the Dojo. He's training under The Master
and is happy to fight us. Max HP: 15, Attack Power: 2, Defense Power: 2. 
Hammer attacks don't work well, but you can turn him over with Jump attacks.
One he's flipped over, he's easy. No mercy, Mario!"



*Lee
 Life   -20
 Attack -5
 Defense-0

Location: The Dojo.

Strategy: Being a Duplighost, Lee can shape shift into all of our partners. I 
didn't write all their descriptions, for they all have the same statistics as
the partner he has shape shifted as. A simple Power Bounce may do good.

Goombario's Log: "This is Lee, of the Dojo. He's training under The Master 
and is happy to fight us. Max HP: 20, Attack Power: 5, Defense Power: 0 He 
has mastered the art of disguise, so don't let it faze you when he suddenly
mirrors us. Remember, he can't stay disguised forever. Don't let his strange 
tactics throw you off guard, no matter how many times he transforms."



*The Master #1
 Life   -50

Location: The Dojo.

Strategy: 

Goombario's Log: "This is The Master. He owns the Dojo-- and he's the 
strongest member. Max HP: 50, Attack Power: 6, Defense Power: 0 If he's the 
best in the Dojo, he must be pretty tough!"



*The Master #2
 Life   -75
 Attack -8
 Defense-0

Location: The Dojo.

Strategy: He's powered up, and still has cool music. He has new yellow 
clothes, showing his power. Charges and Power Bounce is a GREAT combo, in all
Master battles, just don't forget your defending. His stamina is now 75, with
an attack power of 8 to match his large figures. With no defense, he still is
no challenge.



Goombarioís Log: "This is The Master. He owns the Dojo-- and he's the 
strongest member. Max HP: 75, Attack Power: 8, Defense Power: 0 He knows both.
normal and advanced methods of attack. You'd better concentrate, Mario! This
guy doesn't mess around at all!"



*The Master #3
 Life   -99
 Attack -Double- 6 + 7
         Triple- 5 + 6 + 7 
 Defense-1

Location: The Dojo.

Strategy: Oh, my, god. Let me just say this is nearly as hard as the final 
battle with Bowser, and this is an optional event! He has combo attacks, a 
double and a triple, all ranging in different powers. He has now turned to a 
super sayan, like in Dragon Ball Z, and started glowing with fire. He has his
punch attack still, which now does 10 damage, and his other attacks are from 
13, for the Double attack, and 18, for the triple. These can be decreased by 
2/3 each with an action command, but timing is everything! Super Jump Charge 
and Power Bounce this man to Pluto for all I care. Also note that the Master 
has very poor accuracy, so Cloud Nine will do fine.

Goombarioís Log: "He is The Master. He owns the Dojo-- and he's the strongest 
member. Max HP: 99, Attack Power: 10, Defense Power: 1 He may well know a 
few moves I've never heard of... We can't expect mercy from this guy, so 
let's take the fight to him."




*Goomba Bros.
Red         Blue
 Life   -7   Life   -6
 Attack -1   Attack -1
 Defense-0   Defense-0

Location: Toad Town Path

Strategy: Both only having a weak headbonk attack, the Goomba Bros. are very
easy to defeat. Unlike most Goombas, this troublesome duo has higher HP than
usual Goombas. Firstly, attack the Blue Goomba with Mario's Jump or Hammer. 
Once the Blue Goomba dies, attack the Red one! Easy as pie.

Goombario's Log: "This is Red Goomba. He's the older of the two notorious 
Goomba Bros. Max HP: 7, Attack Power: 1, Defense Power: 0. The Goomba King 
ordered him to try to stop you. You can take this guy, no prob. He has just 
a little more HP than an ordinary Goomba."

"This is Blue Goomba. He's the younger of the two notorious Goomba Bros. Max
HP: 6, Attack Power: 1, Defense Power: 0. As you heard in his little speech, 
he's one of the Goomba King's men. He doesn't look that healthy. He's weaker
than his brother."



*Goomba King & Goomba Bros.
The Goomba King
 Life   -10

 Defense-0

Red Bro.    Blue Bro.
 Life   -2   Life   -2
 Attack -1   Attack -1
 Defense-0   Defense-0

Location: Goomba King's Fortress.

Strategy: This battle is extremely easy, if you know what you are doing. Get 
Mario to jump on the Goomnut tree in the backround, so a bramble falls onto 
the Goomba King causing 3 damage, and as the bramble bounces away, it ALSO 
hits the Goomba Bros, destroying them instantly! After that, Power Jump the
Goomba King twice, and Headbonk him once, and you have defeated him!

Goombario's Log: "This is the Goomba King. He's really big. I mean, look at 
him! He looks really powerful. Max HP: 10, Attack Power: 1, Defense Power: 
0. He's the boss of Red Goomba and Blue Goomba. Who cares if he's strong? 
You're much stronger. Gee, I wonder what he ate to become so big? I'd like 
to be a bit bigger, too."



*Magikoopa (Is this technically a boss?)
 Life   -8
 Attack -3
 Defense-0

Location: Shooting Star Summit.

Strategy: This battle, by the way, is impossible to lose at. Just by jumping 
on the annoying Magikoopa for 4 rounds will kill it. And if you use action 
commands with Mario AND Goombario, 2 rounds, its over! Easy as pie...or 
cake.

Goombario's Log: "This is a Magikoopa. Magikoopas use magical rods. Max HP:
8, Attack Power: 3, Defense Power: 0. Magic attacks are no joke, Mario. 
You'd better take these guys seriously."



*Bowser??? (Mecha Bowser)
 Life   -10
 Attack -Arm Smash- 1
 Defense-1

Location: Koopa Bros. Fortress.

Strategy: This battle is pretty easy, for if you do get to execute defensive
action commands, the so called 'Bowser' will not do any damage on you. Just 
hit him with 10 action commanded Hammers, and he's done for. Or for the 
easier way, just get Bombette, and do 2 Bomb attacks, and get Mario to do 2 
Hammers, and it will be over in 2 turns flat. 

Goombario's Log: "Bowser...? But he looks kind of...lame. I mean, he's lame
anyway, but... Max HP: 10, Attack Power: 1, Defense Power: 1 Does Bowser 
really look like this? I always imagined him looking, well, a lot scarier."



*R/Y/B/G Koopa Bros. (Longest EVER!)
Stacked          Single
 Life   -0        Life   -5
 Attack -1/2/3/4  Attack -1
 Defense-0        Defense-1

Location: Koopa Bros. Fortress.

Strategy: When you enter battle, the Koopa Bros. unfortunately get the first 
attack, which I call a Tornado Toss. Basically, the Koopa's are piled one 
onto of the other, and start spinning, then dash towards Mario to do a 1/4 
power attack. This is very hard to block with an action command, so have 
some very good timing as they hit you. Swap out Bombette (if you have her) 
for your partner, Goombario. 

If you still have this, which I oh so dearly hope you do, hit them with a 
Thunder Bolt that you got earlier in the game. If you have used it, switch 
to Bombette and hit them with her Bomb attack. Either way, somehow you will 
have to Tattle, if you want to. When the Bros. are defenseless on the ground,
use Koopers Power Shell to hit them all, and Mario's Power Jump to finish 
off their remaining HP. If they get up, use your POW blocks, to get them 
down again. Keep doing this to beat them for good. 

Goombario's Log: Log only available for a single Koopa. I forgot to type it
down here, so someone email me the log. Plus, I can't go back to it...



*Buzzar
 Life   -40
 Attack -Wind Woosh-1/2/3
         Claw Grab-4
         Foot Tackle-3
         Feather Spears-2
 Defense-0

Location: Buzzar's Nest (Mt. Rugged.)

Strategy: That's a heaping of HP, but if you're strong enough you will do 
just fine. Power Jump it, make it sleepy with your Sleepy Sheeps, if you 
have any, and use Parakarry's attacks against it. It's Wind Whoosh attack 
does a certain amount of damage depending on how many times you press A. 
Parakarryís Shell Shot does greatly, and Mario can just keep Refreshing. 
His Claw Grab also does some damage, and a hard one to get out of too, 
otherwise, you'll do splendidly. Foot Tackle is easy to block, and feather 
spears too.

Goombario's Log: "This is Buzzar. He guards Mt. Rugged. Wow! That's one big
bird! Max HP: 40, Attack Power: 3, Defense Power: 0. If you get caught in 
the clutches of his sharp claws, you'll lose 4 HP! Try to wriggle out of 
his grip. His special attack is flapping his wings to create wind. This 
attack damages your party members, too. But he was hatching eggs, wasn't he?
Is it possible that he's really a she? I wonder..."



*Tutankoopa & Chain Chomps
Tutankoopa
 Life   -30
 Attack -Shell Throw-3
         Magical Chomp-2
 Defense-0

Chain Chomps
 Life   -4
 Attack -3
 Defense-3

Location: Dry Dry Ruins

Strategy: This battle actually turns out to be quite annoying. Only because 
once he summons his loyal subjects, the Chain Chomps, you tend to steer of 
defeating the Tutankoopa but try to dispose of the Chain Chomp. Once he 
summons his Chain Chomp, start pulverizing it with Bombette's Power Bomb to
hit it and the Tutankoopa, and use Mario's Power Bounce only the Tutankoopa.
The other way of defeating it is to use Parakarryís Shell Shot while Mario 
uses his hammer with the aid of the D-Down Pound badge. This battle turns 
out to be quite easy, but still, very annoying. And sometimes, when 
Tutankoopa uses his Magical Chomp attack, it backfires and hits him instead.
Perfect!

Goombario's Log: "This is Tutankoopa. He's one of Bowser's followers and 
he's been assigned to guard one of the Star Spirits. I've heard that he has
sort of a pharaoh complex. Max HP: 30, Attack Power: 3, Defense Power: 0. He
attacks by throwing shells from that high perch. Try to dodge when he uses 
magic: its attack power is 2 and it'll sting for sure. And he also summons 
Chomps, his loyal subjects. Those Chomps have some serious attack power. 
Think hard about who to attack first, Tutankoopa or Chomp."

"It's a Chomp. You've heard about Chomps before, I'm sure. Max HP: 4, 
Attack Power: 3, Defense Power: 3 They're made of such hard stuff that most 
of your attacks won't even faze them. I heard a rumor that the Chomps are a 
little peeved at Tutankoopa because he works them so hard."



*Invincible Tubba Blubba
 Life   - 10
 Attack - 4
 Defense- ?

First Location: Tubba Blubba's House.

Strategy: --

Goombario's Log: "This is Tubba Blubba. He is one of Bowser's toughest 
followers and he's the master of this cursed castle. Max HP: 10, Attack 
Power: 4, Defense Power: ?. I don't know his defense power. Everyone says 
he's invincible because he has never been hurt. I'd say it's a good idea to 
run from immortal enemies! If you get in deep trouble, Bow can hide you 
from him."



*Tubba Blubba's Heart
 Life   -50
 Attack -Charge Blast- 12
 Defense-0

Location: Windy Mill Windmill.

Strategy: Ok, this is like it said, Tubba Blubba's Heart. What do we do? 
Annihilate it! For this battle, I say DEFINETLY get Bow out, for we need her 
Outta Sight. I on the other hand, for your pleasure, had to Tattle, so I was 
basically doomed to a 12 point damage attack on the second round. Now, to 
beat it. Note that when you get him to 5 HP, he will run away, so that's why 
I told you to equip those super strong badges. Firstly, every time he starts 
glowing and shining, use Bow BEFORE Mario's turn, to make him invisible. The 
reason for this is because, 1, you can die in 3 shots if he gets you 3 times,
and 2, if we use Bow before Mario, Mario attacks instead of Bow next turn. 
Plus, sorry if you realize, you can't hammer him. For those who want the easy
way, use Charge and Hammer Throw badges on it. Other than that, make sure you
ALWAYS have 2 FP! Plus, lucky for me, Merlee's lucky power activated, so I 
bet it easily. Try to get him to 6 HP, so you can use a partner to finish 
him off. He doesn't give Star Points...

Goombario's Log: "This is Tubba's Heart. You might say it's the "heart" of 
Tubba's secret. Ha! Ok, that wasn't funny. Max HP: 50, Attack Power: 6,
Defense Power: 0. He has a terrible attack, so hide when he tells you he's
about to unleash it. This attack will take away 12 HP! Whoa! Try to beat him
before he can do his huge attack again, trust me, it's dangerous. This is 
Bow's turn to shine!



*Tubba Blubba
 Life   -10
 Attack -Mario Squash- 4
         Hip Drop- 6
 Defense-0

Location: Windy Mill.

Strategy: He is WEAK. I killed him with a Power Jump and a headbonk for 
Christís sake.

Goombario's Log: "This is Tubba Blubba, now reunited with his heart. This is
finally his true self. Max HP: 10, Attack Power: 4, Defense Power, 0...
probably. His hip attack causes 6 points worth of damage. Be careful, because
Iím not exactly sure what his other attacks can do...But...I think he's
definitely weaker than before..."



*Big Lantern Ghost
 Life   -40
 Attack -Flash Attack- 2
         Butt Thwomp- 5
 Defense-0

Location: Shy Guy's Toy Box, Red Station.

Strategy: When you first enter this battle, you can neither tattle him or 
attack him. Make sure you have Bow throughout the whole battle, for you'll 
need her. Now, the ugly ghost, has an annoying power. When his lantern is 
darkened, he is untouchable, literally. Attacking the lantern makes it 
brighter, so, use Bow against his lantern with 1 smack attack, and it lights 
up instantaneously! Keep doing this, and attack him with Mario, and he'll be 
finished in no time. His flash attack hits your partner too, dazing it for a 
while, so be careful. You can also put him to sleep, so thats pretty useful.

Goombario's Log: "This is a Big Lantern Ghost. He avoids attacks by hiding in
the dark. Max HP: 40, Attack Power: 5, Defense Power: 0. Your friends, like
(ahem) me, will also be damaged when he does the flash attack. The flash
attack's power is 2. Hit the Lantern many times to make it brighter, then
you'll be able to attack him. As soon as you can see, hit him right in the
head!"



*Anti-Guy
 Life   -50
 Attack -Normal- 10
         Show off- 12
 Defense-0

Location: Shy Guy's Toy Box, Blue Station.

Strategy: This battle turns out to be a shocker. It's hard, and irritatingly
annoying. The basic strategy is to use Power Bounce while Watt paralyzes the
Anti-Guy. Make sure you have lots of Life Shrooms, you'll need them. 

Goombario's Log: "This is an Anti Guy. His attacks are so intense that he's
also called Deadly Guy. Max HP: 50, Attack Power: 10, Defense Power: 0. His 
attack power is 12 when he does an acrobatic attack, so dodge it! This guy 
is for real, so we'd better take him seriously."



*General Guy's Army
*Shy Squad
 Life   -15
 Attack -1
 Defense-0

Location: Shy Guy's Toy Box, Red Station.

Strategy: Ok, this turns out to be easy. Unfortunate, if you are horribly 
low on life, you're doomed. Basically, 15 Shy Guys = 15 HP = 15 Attack, and 
so on. This is a very hard battle, if you don't have good attacks.

Goombario's Log: "This is the Shy Squad. It'll attack us with all its members
at once. Max HP: 15, Attack Power: 1, Defense Power: 0 The number of times 
we're attacked will equal the number of Shy Guys in the Squad. Its attack 
power is huge when there are many Guys, but it drops for each one that falls.
Let's use an attack that does tons of damage so we can decrease their numbers
and increase our chances."

*Stilt Guy
 Life   -7
 Attack -4
 Defense-0

Location: Shy Guy's Toy Box, Red Station.

Strategy: Defeat them like you'd defeat any other enemy. You cannot attack 
the General Guy for some reason in this battle, so try your hardest.

Goombario's Log: "This is Stilt Guy. Yes, as the name suggests, Stilt Guys 
are Shy Guys on Stilts. I mean, it seems pretty obvious to me... Max HP: 7,
Attack Power: 4, Defense Power: 0 If you attack them by shaking the ground, 
they'll fall off their stilts and become normal Shy Guys."

*Shy Stack
 Life   -10

Location: Shy Guy's Toy Box, Red Station.

Strategy: Same properties as the Shy Squad, but with two separate targets.

Goombario' Log: "This is a Shy Stack. Whoa, this pile has an incredible sense
of balance! Look at that stack! Max HP: 10, Attack Power: 1, Defense Power: 
0. Its attack power equals the number of Guys in the stack. It will be 4 if 
there are four Shy Guys stacked up. If you have the Spin Hammer ability, you 
can knock them off one by one. Obviously, their attack power decreases when 
there are fewer of them in the stack."

*General Guy
 Life   -30
 Attack -Bomb- 4
         Flash- 5/2
 Defense-2

Location: Shy Guy's Toy Box, Red Station.

Strategy: Ok, now, his attack is quite high, along with his defense. He has a
annoying Flash Attack, which does what the Lantern Ghost basically did, but 
with a bit more power. He also throws a weak bomb, which does about 4 damage.
Watt's Turbo Charge really helps in this battle, due to the high defense of 
the tank itself. A good strategy, is to attack the bulb with Parakarry's 
Shell Shot, use Watt's Turbo charge to make Mario stronger, and Power Jump on
the General Guy, causing a mass amount of 8 damage!

Goombario's Log: "This is General Guy in his tank. The tank seems to be 
dangerous even though it's a toy. Max HP: 30, Attack Power: 4, Defense Power:
2. Not only does the General give commands from the tank, but he also throws 
bombs and uses electric attacks. The power of his electric attack is 5, and 
your party member takes 2 damage points, so defend yourself carefully. He'll 
lose the electric attack if we break the light bulb. Normal fighting styles 
seem ineffective because the tank is well fortified."




*Lava Piranha & Lava Bud
Lava Piranha
 Life   -40
 Attack -Lava Fire- 5
 Defense-0
Buds
 Life   -8
 Attack -Bud Fire- 4
 Defense-0

Location: Mt. Lavalava

Strategy: Well, this boss seems not one ounce terrifying! All you must do, is
use Sushie to deal with the two Lava Buds and some HP from the Lava Piranha, 
then use Mario's Power Bounce, letting the Ice Power badge take in affect. 
Each part of the enemy attacks separately, so the order is usually Bud, Bud, 
Lava Piranha, leading to a top of 11 damage. If you equipped Damage Dodge 
like I told you to, and Fire Shield, that damage plummets to a mere low of 7.
When you defeat either Lava Bud, they crinkle into dead plants, but soon 
enough come back. The main root, or Lava Piranha, is the only way to win.

Goombario's Log: "This is a Lava Piranha. Lava Piranhas are plants that can
somehow survive in lava. Max HP: 40, Attack Power: 5, Defense Power: 0. They
blow out huge balls of fire to attack. That is one big flower! Wow!"

"This is a Lava Bud. Lava Buds are little flowers branching out from the main
stem on the Lava Piranha. They love it in the lava. Hey, if you were a fiery
plant, you'd love it there, too. Max HP: 8, Defense Power: 0. They blow small
seeds or other projectiles to attack. The small Lava Buds' attack power is 
4."

Buds------------Petit Piranha
 Life   -8      Life   -1
 Attack -0      Attack -Sacrifice- 6
 Defense-0      Defense-0

Location: Mt. Lavalava

Strategy: Well, they are fire charged, so they seem stronger. In this battle,
you must defeat 5 enemies on one field at a time, usually, and win. Stone 
Caps are great here, for the attacks will add up to 18 if you don't block 
properly. Petit Piranhas will come from Lava Buds, which have no power in 
this battle. The reason is that the Petit Piranhas do all the work, with a 
extra 2 damage points than the Lava Buds original attack. Chill Out, works 
wonders here, and Tidal Wave from Sushie. If you use Chill Out, with the aid 
of the Fire Shield and Damage Dodge badges, the Lava Piranhas attack becomes 
a measly 1. Star Storm is a must here, and Life Shrooms are the way to go. I 
used a spare Repel Gel in this battle, so you can use that too. 

Fortunately, for you, the Lava Piranha has one fatal weakness. It's fire. Once
you use a Tidal Wave attack, it automatically shuts down for a short period
of time, allowing you to attack with the aid of the Ice Power badge. Lullaby
will also work, so you can use your Star Power to heal yourself.

Goombario's Log: "This is a Lava Piranha. Lava Piranhas are plants that can
somehow survive in lava. Max HP: 40, Attack Power: 5, Defense Power: 0. Since
their bodies are on fire, you'll take damage if you step on them. Don't worry
if you're fireproof. They'll try to burn you with their fire breath. They're
creatures born of fire, so water attacks will work extremely well against 
them."

"This is a Lava Bud. Lava Buds are little flowers branching out from the main
stem on the Lava Piranha. They love it in the lava. Hey, if you were a fiery
plant, you'd love it there, too. Max HP: 8, Defense Power: 0.T They blow out
Petit Piranhas. The Lava Buds' stems themselves won't attack you.

"This is a Petit Piranha. Petit Piranhas spew from Lava Buds. Max HP: 1, 
Attack Power: 6, Defense Power, 0. These things can do some serious damage, 
so watch it!"



*Spike? (Lakilester)
 Life   -50
 Attack -4
 Defense-0

Location: Flower Fields.

Strategy: This, is really a partner battle. "Spike" is your final partner, 
but why is he battling us? Well, he has 50 HP, so he's no ordinary Lakitu. A 
good way to defeat him is to treat him like an ordinary Lakitu, but I did 
this battle with a few Super Smash Charges, a Hammer Throw and a whole lot of
Smacking. Always use Bow, because I think she relates to this enemy.

Goombario's Log: "He said his name is Spike. He seems to be a Lakitu, but 
he's the weirdest one I've seen. Max HP: 50, Attack Power: 4, Defense Power:
0. He throws Spiny Eggs. Is it just me, or did he call himself Spike, Michael
and Lakilester? What an odd guy...I have to wonder just what his real name 
is..."



*Huff N. Puff & Tuff Puffs
Huff N. Puff
 Life   -60
 Attack -Belly Bounce- 5
         Thunder- 6
         Charged Thunder- 12
         Tornado Breath- 2/7
 Defense-0

Tuff Puffs
 Life   -1
 Attack -Recurrent Bash- 2+>
 Defense-0

Location: Cloudy Climb, Flower Fields.

Strategy: He looks adorable! Now, to beat him. Every time we attack him, some
thing called a Tuff Puff appears, and Huff N. Puff will swallow these things 
if we don't beat them, healing himself. 10 Tuff Puffs can be on at one time,
and each regenerates 1 HP. To defeat this monster, use Lakilester's Cloud
Nine, and your Super Jump Charge. Use Lakilester's Spiny Surge to damage Huff
N. Puff, and his minions when they come out, but otherwise, just use the 
Spiny Flip attack, to save FP.

After about 10 charges, unleash, POWER JUMP! Now, the reason for all these
badges, you ask? Well, Super Jump Charge + Power Jump are the key to this
battle, while Quick Change allows you to swap between Lakilester and Watt
quickly (you'll see why soon.) Then, Group Focus is so that your partner can
recharge Star Power if needed, while you keep charging, and Power Plus for 
more power, same with All or Nothing and the Super Boots. Damage Dodges are 
for his Lighting attacks, which cause 6 or 12 damage depending on if he 
charges, and the Pretty Lucky badge to increase Cloud Nines effect (I am SO
smart!)

Now, once you are happy with the way your charge is going, swap out 
Lakilester, and put in Watt, and make him use his Turbo Charge on you, after 
that, unleash your Power Jump, and it should do heaps of damage (my 
calculations are, if correct, after 10 charges, Mario's damage ratio will be
35, and after 20, it will be 70, completely wiping out Huff N. Puff, and,
with the added damage from Lakilester, you win anyway after 10 charges)

Remember, this is a FP draining strategy, so be prepared.

Goombario's Log: "This is Huff N. Puff. He's a giant cloud monster. Max HP:
60, Attack Power: 5, Defense Power: 0. His thunder attack is very dangerous.
If you don't defend, you'll take massive damage. When you attack Huff N. 
Puff, little clouds called Tuff Puffs come out. Their number is based on the
amount of damage you do. If you leave the Tuff Puffs, Huff N. Puff will
swallow them up and restore his HP. You need to use smart tactics to beat 
this guy, Mario."

"These are the Tuff Puffs that break of when you damage Huff N. Puff. Max
HP: 1, Attack Power: 2, Defense Power: 0. Tuff Puffs will fly over and attack
you directly. You have to shake them off using the action command, or
they'll keep damaging you. Huff N. Puff will swallow the Tuff Puffs to restore
his HP, so think carefully when attacking. You can beat the Tuff Puffs easily
by attacking all enemies."



*Monstar
 Life   -20
 Attack -Star Drizzle- 1
 Defense-0

Location: Shiver Snowfield.

Strategy: This is utterly sad. If you read Goombario's Tattle, he says "It's .
attack must be high, judging by its looks." Well, 1 attack doesn't seem much,
and it is our Star Storm in its "Beta Version", if you know what that means. 
2 turns this is over, if you battle it with action commands, no FP needed! 
Well, at least that's my recommendation. I used Power Bounce, and it turns out
you can Power Bounce it 25 times.

Goombario's Log: "This monster...Even I don't know what it is! I don't know 
why, bit it looks really terrifying. ...I get the funny feeling I had a 
nightmare about it...Max HP: 20, Defense Power: 0. I don't know its attack
power, but it must be very powerful, judging by its looks."



*Crystal King & Crystal Bits
Crystal King
 Life   -70
 Attack -Crystal Spears- 4/x # of Crystal Bits
         Frost- 7
         Heal- 20 HP
         Multiply- x2 Kings; 1 is real
 Defense-2

Crystal Bits
 Life   -1
 Attack -Thrown- 4
 Defense-0

Location: Crystal Palace.

Strategy: This is, by far, the most COOLEST backround music ever. Now, a flaw 
in my badge plan. His Crystal Spears attack, is powerful. If you don't defend
with the action command, they do 5 damage each (5 + 5 + 5). Don't let this be
your downfall. If you do execute it, the damage is taken as normal so Mario's
defense is up, so each bit does 2 damage.

Now, for the real strategy. His crown is NOT spiky, even though it looks as
it is. The three little crystals around him are called Crystal Bits, and
have no attack. They serve one purpose, to hurt Mario. As long as you can
get rid of this, say with Lakilester, the better. They are thrown by the 
Crystal King, so if you can stop him in his tracks somehow, like a Lullaby,
the Bits just...float there. He does waste one turn summoning them, so try
to take advantage of that. Use Cloud Nine, Water Block and Super Jump Charge,
like with Huff N. Puff, and you'll do fine. After a while, the King will heal
himself up. He heals 20 HP, but can only do this 3 times. 

His Frost does a decent amount of damage, but it can freeze you, which is why
you equipped Feeling Fine. After a while, he will multiply, so you're going
to have to guess which King is real. Use Spiny Surge to find him, and
continue charging. When you feel best, release the Jump attack, but that's
AFTER powering it up with Watt. While you wait for your turn after putting
him in, Hammer the King. Just remember the Jammin' Jellies, and Life Shrooms
for this battle.

Now, for his final attack. It has a power of 8, and Goombario said its called
divide and conquer. The problem, I couldn't witness the attack, for I wiped
out the Crystal King with a 49 damage point Mega Jump attack...

Goombario's Log: "This is the Crystal King. He's one of Bowser's main guys. I
don't know how he managed to take over this palace, but... Max HP: 70, Attack
Power: 6, Defense Power: 2. He'll attack you by summoning and launching 
Crystal Bits. The power of each attack is 4. The number of times he attacks 
equals the number of Crystal Bits he's deployed. He'll also try to freeze you
whenever he can. When his HP gets low, he may try to divide and conquer. The 
power of this attack is 8. You can hurt him only by attacking his real body. 
If you don't know which one's the main body, you should attack all of them. 
Pretty brilliant, eh?"

"This is a Crystal Bit. Basically, Crystal Bits are just pieces of the
Crystal King. You can drop them with ease. Their Max HP is 1 and they're 
only dangerous when the Crystal King spews them out. Their defense power is 
0. These guys are pretty weak. They'll keep coming, though, until you've 
finally beaten the Crystal King."

The Amazy Dayzee Wonder
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Through Flower Fields, is a bed of flowers with two Crazee Dayzees. It lies
two areas before Lily's Spring, and it has the best Star Point give-away in the
game! Here is a way to defeat it.

Step One:
 Equip: Power Plus    - To add 1+ to Mario's Attack, making his power 3/4.
        All or Nothing- To add 1+ to Mario's Attack when doing an action
                        command, making his power 4/5.
        Dizzy Spin    - To make the Dayzee Dizzy before entering battle.
        Power Jump    - So that his attack is a whopping 7/8.

Step Two:
 Find an Amazy Dayzee, constantly leave the area of which it is, and come 
 back (go to the right area, where the Bubble Berry tree is, then come back.)

Step Three:
 Once the Dayzee appears, Spin on it with 'Z', so that the Dizzy Spin takes
 in affect before battling it.

Step Four:
 Battle the Dayzee, use 2 Power Jumps and 2 Shell Shots, so if you have the
 Super Boots, it would be: 7+7+5+5=24, and for Ultra Boots, 8+8+5+5=26, which
 will automatically destroy, the Amazy Dayzee.

 -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
Amayzee Dayzee Statistics
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

20 HP
20 ATK -- Approx. 2-3 attacks will kill Mario.
01 DEF

-It will, with a 85% chance, run away on the first turn.
-It will, with a 15% chance, attack Mario, then run 2nd turn with a 90%
 chance.
-Always is alone, so you don't have to worry about Crazee Dayzees.
-It will stop giving out Star Points after Mario reaches MAX level (27).

Kent C. Koopa
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Soon after, I think, Chapter 5, a giant oversized Koopa, named Kent C., comes
to the Pleasant Path and demands 100 coins for a pass, as his toll, the
choice not to pay and leave, and battle him. He has 6 defense, and heaps of
life, so do not battle him UNLESS you are level 27. Here is a badges list and
a classical way to defeat him.

Badges:                                                   BP Needed|BP Count
      Power Plus       --> +1 Attack                     -->  6  -->    6    
      Power Plus       --> +1 Attack                     -->  6  -->   12
      All or Nothing   --> +1 Attack                     -->  4  -->   16
      P-Up, D-Down     --> +1 Attack                     -->  2  -->   18
      Feeling Fine     --> He has a dizzy enducing attack-->  3  -->   21
      Mega Quake       --> He's a Koopa, after all...    -->  3  -->   24
      Power Bounce     --> For a consecutive attack      -->  2  -->   26
      Super Jump Charge--> Charge our Power Bounce       -->  2  -->   28
      Sleep Stomp      --> He loves sleeping...a lot...   -->  1  -->   29

Now, head to the right, and talk to the giant Koopa blocking your path to the
Koopa Village. His name is Kent C., obviously, and ask him to fight twice.
Don't press Pay, for he will make you pay 100 coins. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle: Kent C. Koopa
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

HP: 70
ATK: Shell Squasher- 3
DEF: Standing Up- 6
     Lying Down (stomach)- 3
     Lying Down (tail)- 0

Ok, basic strategy. Mega Quakes penetrate his defense, so use that in an 
emergency. You can flip him by jumping on him WITH a command, but before that
put him to sleep (he has a weakness, according to the Koopas in Koopa 
Village), charge with Super Jump Charge, and Power Bounce HIS TAIL! His tail 
has 0 defense and still contributes to major damage, but his stomach has 3. 
Pretty basic...but remember, his defense standing up is bizarre, so remember
to Jump on the Koopa. Beware his Shell Squasher, though, because it attack
Mario AND your partner. Now, another way to defeat him, is to flip him over
with a action commanded Sleep Stomp, so he stays in his shell for 5 turns.
While that happens, charge Goombario's and Mario's attack, then unleash
Power Bounce and Multibonk before he gets up. Simple!

The Dojo's Challenges
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Located in the main centre of Toad Town, the dojo has 3 enemies that you
must battle to earn degrees, which make people give you more information, or
just changes dialogue a bit. There are a series of battles you must attend
to, so here are the guides.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mini-Boss Battle: Chan
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

HP: 15
ATK:2
DEF:2

If you where like me, and leaving this battle 'till later in the game, say,
just before you left to the Star Road, you'd notice his utter weak status.
He is like a Buzzy Beetle, so treat him like one, and this battle will be a
breeze.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Battle one, complete! 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mario is awarded a First-Degree Card, and can now battle Lee.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mini-Boss Battle: Lee
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

HP: 20
ATK:5
DEF:0

Being a Duplighost, Lee can shape shift into all of our partners. I didn't
write all their descriptions, for they all have the same statistics as the
partner he has shape shifted as. A simple Power Bounce may do good.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Battle two, complete!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mario is awarded with a Second-Degree Card, and can now battle The Master #1.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle: The Master #1
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

HP: 50
ATK:6
DEF:0

He has one of the many cool backround musics, but he is nothing to laugh at.
He has a attack with 6 damage, but that's about it. He is defeatable with yet
some more Power Bounces, and some good charging.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Battle three, complete!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mario is awarded with a Third-Degree Card, and can now battle The Master #2.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle: The Master #2
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

HP: 75
ATK:8
DEF:0

He's powered up, and still has cool music. He has new yellow clothes, showing
his power. Charges and Power Bounce is a GREAT combo, in all Master battles,
just don't forget your defending. His stamina is now 75, with an attack power
of 8 to match his large figures. With no defense, he still is no challenge.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Battle four, complete!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mario is awarded with a Fourth-Degree Card, and can now battle The Master #3.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss Battle: The Master #3
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

HP: 99
ATK: Punch - 10
     Double - 6 + 7
     Triple - 5 + 6 + 7
DEF:1

Oh, my, god. Let me just say this is nearly as hard as the final battle with
Bowser, and this is an optional event! He has combo attacks, a double and a
triple, all ranging in different powers. He has now turned to a super sayan,
like in Dragon Ball Z, and started glowing with fire. He has his punch attack
still, which now does 10 damage, and his other attacks are from 13, for the
Double attack, and 18, for the triple. These can be decreased by 2/3 each
with an action command, but timing is everything! Super Jump Charge and 
Power Bounce this man to Pluto for all I care. Also note that the Master has
very poor accuracy, so Cloud Nine will do fine.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Last battle, complete!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mario is awarded with a Diploma, and now, Mario is officially the strongest
in Mushroom Kingdom! (Well, Bowser is a different story...)

makes, such as it didn't say anything more or he/she is and so and so.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hints & Secrets
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The infinite heart Candy Cane:
 At Pleasant Path's fork, you may have noticed a series of striped plants.
 One of those plants, when you run around them, will continue looking at you.
 This is the infinite heart Candy Cane. Like the giant eyeballs back in the
 old Mario games, that when you run around them they die, the Candy Cane
 instead gives you some Hearts! It's great for some quick healing, but then
 again you may lose more hearts by getting there and back.

Classical Mario:
 Back in Boo's Mansion, there is a vase in a certain room, accessible by
 jumping onto some crates. Once you jump into it, you come out as 8-Bit Mario,
 or, Classical Mario. Unfortunetly, you can only be in that form for that
 room alone, because one you leave, he becomes 2-D again.

No charge readings:
 When you get psychic readings, from say, Merlon or Merluvlee, you must pay.
 Well, not anymore! Before you visit them, save, and then get a reading.
 Whatever she says, or he, reset the game and get what you wanted, so that
 you don't have to pay!

Whacka OW:
 If you bomb Whacka with Bombette, he'll give out two bumps instead of one.
 This still means he has 8 Bumps though.

Bowser Glitch gone wrong:
 If, at the start of the game, when you battle Bowser, and you win, your
 game will wreck. Also, if you're able to beat Bowser before the final battle
 when the Star Beam doesn't work, he ends up with 1 HP because the storyline
 will get ruined.

Profiting Regions:
 Throughout the regions, wouldn't you think the Lavalava Island residents
 would want something cold rather than hot, and the Shiver City want 
 something hot rather than cold? Well, selling, let's say, an Iced Potato to
 the Yoshi items shop will give you a GREAT profit, and vise versa, but with
 something like a fire flower.
