1) Version History

Version 1.0 - 2/11/00

First version. Everything is new.

* Typed the entire thing up, all in 2 days. Not bad eh? Not good 

* One or two more updates, as the coin list and walkthrough only go 
through the first 4 levels. Oh well, i like the other sections better, 
don't you?

Version 1.1 - 2/12/00

The one thing i LOVE about writing for old games is that they are SO 
easy to write about. Therefore, you get another update...not that you 

* Finished coin list...in my opinion of course.

* Only thing left is walkthrough, which will be updated either shortly 

Version 1.2 - 5/02/00

Here is another un-needed update that you were just *dying* to get. 
Maybe i'll actually FINISH one of my faqs.

* Added level 5 walkthrough.

* Added what will be the final new section for sure. Section 21.

5) Enemy FAQ

#1 - Goomba - Yellow Coin (1)
These mushroom guys love to travel in groups of three. Defeat them with 
any normal attack.

#2 - Koopa Troopa - Blue Coin (1)
Jump these guys, get their coins, and then cruise around on their shell! 
Double the fun!

#3 - Bob-Omb - Yellow Coin (1)
Pick these guys up and throw them. They'll blow up and you'll get a 
coin. Nothing special.

#4 - Whomp - Yellow Coin (9)
Jump on these guys' backs four times, then butt slam them for a LOAD of 
coins. Too bad only 2 exist. 

#5 - Thwomp - No Coins
These are invulnerable, so don't mess with them! Not many exist, on the 
bright side...

#6 - Pihrana Plant - Blue Coin (1)
Sneak up on them while they are sleeping, then attack! Stay away if they 
are awake however, as they hurt alot.

#7 - Bullet Bill - None.
Invulnerable, so just stay away. Only one exists, so you don't have much 
to worry about.

#8 - Balls the Snowman - Yellow Coin (3)
Yes i made up that highly original name, thank you! Run around them, and 
they explode...ooh!

#9 - Boo Buddy - Blue Coin (1)
Face away from them then jump them! Everyone knows about these!

#10 - I-Ball - Blue Coin (1)
Run around these odd creatures, and they will explode, much like Balls. 
Easier to defeat..

#11 - Batty - Yellow Coin (1)
Found in caves, they try and land on you. Just punch em' to death.

#12 - Bully - Yellow Coin (1)
These try and ram you into lava. Counter with a few kicks of your own!

#13 - Shy Guy - Yellow Coin (1)
Jump on their heads and you'll get a spinning lift! Very useful...

#14 - Pokey - Blue Coin (1)
We all know these guys! Hit them in the head with a kick for an easy 
KO..or you can take them down one piece at a time.

#15 - Lakitu - Yellow Coin (5) 
Hard to kill, they throw spinies out at you, and fly around. Jump it 
when it's low to the ground!

#16 - Piano From Hell - None.
Stay far away! If you go near it prepare to be attacked like you never 
have before...ouch!

#17 - Chuck - Yellow Coin (5)
These huge purple bob-ombs will attempt to throw you off cliffs. Counter 
by picking them up from behind and throwing them down. Fun to play 
around with.

#18 - Monty Mole - Extra Live(s)
No coins, also invulnerable. BUT...jump about 8 of them for a 1-up!

#19 - Water Skimmer - Yellow Coin (5)
Found on the water..where else?!?! These spidery creatures are extremly 
stupid, but cool. Defeat them and grab their treasure..

#20 - Demonic Flower - Yellow Coin (1)
They may LOOK sweet, but they are evil knife-wielding creatures. 
Acutally jump on them and you'll float around..much like the shy guy's.

#21 - Bubba - None.
THE coolest enemy ever! Not only is he invulnerable, but he is bigger 
than hell, and can suck you up in one try, killing you. Stay away from 
this guy unless you want to have some "fun". By the way, i'm talking 
about the fish, not Mr. Clinton :)

6) Items\Blocks

These are the main goal of the game, to collect all 120! Without them 
you cannot enter doors, new worlds, and rescue the princess! Better make 
sure to get at least 70 of these...

Yellow Coins:
Use these to refill health, as well as get stars and extra lives.

Red Coins:
Use these to refill health, collect all 8 for a star.

Blue Coins:
Use these to refill health, as well as get stars and extra lives.

1-Up Mushroom:
These are hidden very well...and grant you an extra 
mario\life\turn\chance\play\etc. Useful if you suck...

"!" Boxes:
Gone are the "?" boxes and in are these! These contain stars, coins, and 
other various goodies. What more can i say? Oh yeah..they are pretty 

Spinning Heart:
Run through it to replenish your life!

Throw these to get 3 coins! You have to collect them...of course.

Hit these and something special will happen! Such as water lowering, 
stairs forming, a star appearing, etc...

Wing Cap:
Collect this and you can fly! Triple jump and off you go! Blinks before 
it runs out.

Metal Cap: 
Now you are invulnerable, to EVERYTHING! You name it, fire, thwomps, 
etc, etc. Pretty cool, yes? Also allows you to sink in water.

Invisible Cap: 
Now you can walk through SOME walls, pretty cool. Found only a couple 

7) Movelist

Walk (Hold control stick lightly)
This is simple, hold barely on the control stick and he will tiptoe.
Useful for sneaking up on enemies, or for the patient, unlike me.

Run (Hold control stick all the way in one direction)
This is just like walking, only faster. But you allready know that. You
will use this all the time, that or you've found some other way to move

Crouch (Z)
I'm not sure why anyone would want to do this, but when you do you
duck, therefore making it harder to be hit. This would work except for
the fact that most enemies are on the ground and you hit you anyway...

Jump (A)
This is your basic jump command. Use this to climb blocks, stairs,
and jump onto poles, trees and such. Can also be used to kill some

Double Jump (A + A)
Jump once, then twice and you'll jump much higher. This is only used
when you have something much higher you need to reach. Not very good
for killing enemies.

Triple Jump (A + A + A)
Jump once, then again, then again. You've just done the triple jump.
You'll need to master this to complete the game, as it is needed to
reach otherwise unreachable areas. For those that care, mario says
either "wah, hoo-hoo, yippie!", "wah, hoo-hoo, wahoo!", or "Wah,
hoo-hoo, yahoo!". Exciting eh? Not really. 

Special Triple Jump (A + A + A <requires 120 stars>)
This is the SAME exact move as the triple jump, except for two
factors. The first would be you need to have 120 stars, then talk
to yoshi to get it. The second is you are invulnrabale during the
jump. Therefore you can triple jump into an enemy, or even off the
TOP of the castle and not be harmed. This would be useful if it
weren't for the fact that you only get it AFTER you beat the game.
Also a factor in the many 'luigi' rumors circulating around.

Backflip (Z + A)
We've all seen this move before and we all know how it works. Just
execute the move and you jump about the same height as a double jump
only backwards. Any questions? No? Good...

Sideflip (Sharp Turn + A)
Run one way, then quickly turn and press A and you'll do a pretty
nifty high jump that looks a bit awkward. Use this when you need to
get really high and have little room to do it. Not the best method of
attacking however.

Long Jump (Run + Z + A)
Use this to jump great distance. Useful for clearing gaps or speeding
through a level. Get used to this move as it's going to be used a lot
during the game.

Wall Kick (Jump Into Wall + Control Stick In Opposite Direction + A)
This is one of the most important moves in the entire game. Anyone
that has played metroid knows how this works. You can use this any
place where a wall is, and that's basically everywhere. Only masters
of this move will collect all 120 stars.

Butt-Slam (A + Z)
Jump then press Z and mario will do a powerful slam onto the ground.
Now if you ask me, this would be rather painful if i did it, but
apparently mario loves to smash posts, enemies, and switches with
his butt, so who am i to stop him?

Punch (B)
Your basic attack, used to kill enemies obviously. Not much of a 
range but it gets the job done. Look on the list for another move to

Double Punch (B + B)
Just like a punch, only X 2! Pretty useless, only used if you miss
the first time...I guess.

Punch, Punch, Kick Combo (B + B + B)
This is a bit more effective than a double or normal punch, but not
by much. Execute this move and you'll get 3 chances, and about 1
pixel more range with the kick. 

High Kick (A + B)
Jump, then attack and you'll do a high kick that kills those pesky
airial enemies. Good for defeating cacti, and the occasional shy

Dive (Run + B)
Probably the most used attack. Nice speed, nice range, and using
this move comes naturally. The only alternative for this move 
would be the slide kick.

Circle Kick (Z + B)
While i will admit this move does look pretty cool, it has no range at
all and will probably end up getting you killed if you try and use this

Slide Kick (Run + Z + B)
This is probably the only alternative to the dive move. I prefer this
over the dive move actually, the only drawback being having to run and
press 2 buttons instead of just one. Other than that, it's great!

Flutter Kick (In water + Hold Down A)
In this game, this is the slow way to swim. However slow it may be, it
is very accurate and should be used when you have plenty of time and no 
room for errors. 

Breast-stroke (In Water + A + A + A...)
Repeatadly tap A once you get in the water to swim as fast as possible.
This should be used when your doing anything that is not a tedious
puzzle which requires precision handling. Bascially, use this all the

Grab (In Water + B)
I have NO clue what this is all about. Execute this move and you will
go forward about 2 inches. You can use this to grab onto shells in the
water but that can allready be done by simply touching them. This move
is utter uselessness, that is, unless some one figures out just why
this move was programmed in...

9) Reviews

Reviewer: Jdude84 <Jdude84@hotmail.com> 
Score: 10/10

The first game out on N64 was this game, to no one's suprise. It has set 
the standard for games such as Banjo-Kazooie, and is still a great game 

Graphics - 10
For the first game on N64, this one has great graphics, sure, there are 
a few games out there with better graphics today, but this game is old! 
The graphics are sharp, and there is little to no popup unless you go 
looking for it.

Sound\Sound FX - 10
The sound on this game is also great, mario has about 15 different 
phrases, not counting all the enimies\allies you run into. The 
background music could have been a bit better, but what can you expect 
from a first generation 64 game?

Replay Value\Fun Factor - 9
The replay isn't that great once you've beat the game, unless you have 
collected all 120 stars. But there is plenty more to do after you've 
beaten the game entirely...you can try and set new records in the 
races\slides, try and collect EVERY SINGLE coin in the game. And then 
there is the famous 'luigi cheats' which don't work at all, but are 
still fun to try. I know i had a fun time trying them all! 

Gameplay - 10
The gameply is simply amazing, mario has over 20 moves, and fights over 
50 different kinds of enimies during the course of the game. There are 
15 levels, 15 bonus levels, and 3 main bosses in the game. One challenge 
this game presents however is the camera angle, you must control it 100% 
of the time throughout the entire game, even at the final boss. There is 
first person view, and a variety of angles, which makes the control a 
bit hard. Other than that the gameplay is awesome!

Overall - 10
This game obviously deserves a ten, with high scores in every category, 
this is one game that is and SHOULD be in everyone's collection. If you 
do not have this game, buy it today!

10) Secrets

Codes and Hints:

On the third Bowser, I find a small part of the level very annoying, so 
I found a way to skip it. On the first "vertical merry-go-round" (the 
one with the visible life in the middle), duck. When you reach the peak 
of the revolution, jump. If you timed right, Mario should flip onto a 
platform above him.

When you get half way up the first part of the metal ramp (the part 
where you can stand still and not fall before the first flame thrower), 
turn around and do a long jump. If you did this correctly you will be on 
the checkered platform with the small firebreathing plant.

Butterfly Punching:

Sometimes in the game you will see a bunch of butterflies fly out of a 
tree or grass. Punch or touch any of them and they will turn into a 1-
UP.  Also some of the butterflies turn into bombs.

Camera Trick:

After you've won the game, you can control the camera angle in the scene 
where Mario is talking to the Princess. To do so, use the analog stick 
on Controller Two. You can also do this on the Credits screen.

Change Obstacle Speed:

To change the obstacle speed on Course 14, try this. For slower 
obstacles, enter when the minute hand is on 3. To stop them completely, 
enter when the minute hand is on 12. For the more ambitious, enter when 
the minute hand is on 6 for a greater challenge, or 9 for the ride of 
your life!

Climb Steep Surfaces:

In star 1-2, when you start the race, go through the trench and then 
long jump onto the marble slope. Now keep holding the A button and press 
the B button repeatedly. You will then jump-kick your way up the slope 
and end up on a part of the mountain if done correctly. This should save 
you a lot of time on the race. This technique works elsewhere too.

Easy Star 6 in Wet-Dry World:

To get star 6 in Wet-Dry World the easy way, just go to Wet-Dry World 
and go to town. Once you're there, go into the cage with the star in it 
(don't hit the ! Switch.) Once your cap runs-out, wall-kick off the 
fence and onto the ledge!

Escape the Black Room of Death:

For years people thought that the only way to escape the Black Room of 
Death (the bug where you jump into the middle pillar of the castle) was 
resetting the game. Well, I have found the way to escape it. When you 
are inside the Black Room of Death on the inside view of the castle put 
yourself against the right side of the room. Make sure that you can't 
see Mario. Now run or jump towards the wall that would be on the side of 
the door to the outside. You should jump through the wall and be free of 
the Black Room of Death.

Extra Lives Outside:

When you are outside, and the water is gone, go under the bridge and 
locate two yellow coins. Do a side jump and then a wall kick to get 
them. When you get the second coin a 1-up should fall. Run over to it 
and collect it. Enter the basement or the main castle door, then come 
out again and recollect your 1-up. Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

Extra Lives from Moles:

You can get 1 extra life on any of the levels with moles. If you jump on 
6 Moles there will appear a secret life.

Extra Lives on the Ice Stage:

To find some extra lives on the Ice stage:

On the first Ice stage, begin your slide.
On the first left turn, head for the row of Coins.
You'll slide into a tunnel that holds 2 extra lives.

Final Level Playing Tip:

The very last level is very hard unless you know a secret.  The first 
couple of hits are easy because the whole plate is still there. But when 
the sides fall out and form a star, this is what you do. Whenever Bouser 
runs at you do a side jump right over his head.  When the plate starts 
to tilt, find the running speed that will keep you in the exact same 

First Person View:

Set your camera mode to "HOLD CAM" then, using the regular camera, look 
around by pressing C-Up. Now hold R and press A or B. The Lakitu should 
be very close to Mario. Walk into the Lakitu to change your perspective. 
You can see your surroundings, but you may see pieces of Mario.

Hat Trick:

Go to the desert level in the basement, then choose any level other than 
#1. Go to the palm tree by the red bomb-omb buddy. Let the bird take 
your hat, then stand on the closest piller and when the bird flies 
around the piller, hit him so he drops the hat, but don't pick it up. 
Stand under the palm tree until you teleport by the cannon. Then 
teleport back to the palm tree.

Every time you do this, another hat will fall on top of the one before 
it. After you do this 50 times, the game will screw-up and freeze.


If your power meter is low dive into the nearest pool of water. When you 
resurface your power meter will be restored.

Hidden Coins:

Run around any wooden post five times to receive five coins.

Invisible Bomb-om:

You need to have already have done the Big Bomb-om trick, and after the 
blast, your hands will still be held out like you're holding an 
invinsible Bomb-om. You can walk around and jump & stuff, nothing will 
happen. But if you throw it, you throw the invisible Bomb-om and that's 

Kill Bowser in Seconds:

This is easy to pull off on Bowser One, but a bit harder on Bowser Two 
or Three.  Run behind him and grab his tail.  As soon as Mario picks it 
up, drop it by pressing B again. Then run in front of Bowser and press 
B.  Mario should've punched thin air, but Bowser will actually transport 
from behind Mario to his tail being in Mario's mitts!  Use this 
technique to lure him into a bomb.

Koopa Race Shortcut:

When you are racing Koopa the Quick in Bob-omb battle field, you can use 
a number of tricks to beat him. The first one, after you go up the first 
bridge, you will see a flower patch on the other side of the fence.

Ignore Koopa and go into the flower patch. You will teleport to the 
other side of the course. You should go over the stone bridge and you 
will see 3 boulders rolling in a small area. There is a hill with a red 
coin onit to the left of the boulders.
Go up the hill and you'll see Koopa going around the bend. Jump into the 
first cave on the path with boulders. You will teleport to the second 
cave. Just go up the mountain the rest of the way. You will have beaten 
Koopa by at least 25 seconds. This is a trick Koopa doesnt know about.

Messed-up Room:

After you get all 120 stars, shoot yourself onto the roof where Yoshi 
is. Then get the winged hat and jump off the roof. Now go back into the 
cannon and shoot yourself back onto the roof only this time aim for the 
highest "tower" (in the direct center of the castle). Go to the left 
side of the wall, facing the castle and before the perpendicular wall, 
and do a jump-dive into the side of the wall. You should fall through 
the castle into a "black room" that is a major glitch.

Owl Ride:

To get a ride on an owl, go to Whomp's Fortress (Level 2) and pick 
"Shoot Into The Wild Blue" or a higher star. Now climb the tree to your 
left and an owl will fly out. He will now let you ride him. But if you 
wait too long he'll tell you to lay off the pasta and drop you.

Penguin Rematch:

When you get 120 stars return to Cool Cool Mountain for a rematch with 
the penguin. If you thought he was big before, you'll be in for a 

Quick Trip Downtown in Wet-Dry World:

You DO NOT need the cannon to get stars 11-5 and 11-6 ("Going Downtown 
for 8 Red Coins" and "Quick Race Through Downtown!").  To get a 
shortcut, jump in the painting to Wet-Dry World as high as you can.  If 
you jumped high enough, the water level should be at its peak.  Now just 
swim over to the caged area and jump out;  Mario should grab on to the 
fencing.  Just dive in and swim your way downtown!

Secret Aquarium:

On course 3 jolly roger bay go in the door and take a few steps and go 
to the right. Look up and there will be a dark black square. Go in the 
square and you will go to the secret aqarium and get 8 red coins.                                                                 

Short-cut in Tall Tall Mountain:

When you start out in Tall Tall Mountain don't go the usual way, instead 
go the other way behind you you will find a 1-up and have to keep runing 
after you get it and immediately afterwards go towards the wall you will 
be on a upper part of the level.

Shortcut to Star #4 on Lethal Lava:

Go to Lethal Lava Land and pick Star #4. Find the Grating where Mr. I is 
waiting, then enter the hole. Wait and you will warp to an island with a 
Wing Cap. Put it on, then do a triple jump and fly past the log onto the 
island with Star #4.

Shortcut to Star #6 in Cool, Cool Mountain:

When you begin the level run past the cottage at the beginning and head 
to the platform where the snowman's body is. Near there should be a guy 
that sorta looks like a flower (He has flower petals on his head) and 
jump on him. Mario will do his helecopter spin. While Mario is spinning 
in air, He will decend slowly. Steer him towards the edge of the lowest 
platform of the area. (I.E. the Platform where the Icicles hang from) DO 
NOT LAND ON THE PLATFORM!! Instead, decend under the ledge and try to 
land on the Ice platform where star #6 rests. It's alot easier than 
using wall kicks to get it as labeled (Wall Kicks will work)!!

Sliding Shortcuts:

To improve your time on the Red Sliding level:

Enter the Red Sliding level.
Jump to the left as soon as you exit the tunnel.
With a little practice you can land on the later part of the course, 
saving you valuable time.  Complete the course in under 21 seconds to 
receive a Star.

This shortcut works in the ice/blue sliding level.

Pass the first two turns.
Do not turn at the third turn.
Let yourself fall slightly to the left.

Teleport on Cool, Cool, Mountain:

On the level Cool, Cool, Mountain where you start, turn right until you 
see a broken down bridge. Go to the very end of the bridge and it will 
teleport you to another broken down bridge right next to the mother 
penguin. However you can't take the baby penguin on this secret.

Top of the World:

After obtaining 120 stars and talking to Yoshi, Mario can climb up to 
the very tip of the steeple on the castle. Acquire wings, climb into the 
cannon and shoot yourself as high up as you can, aiming at the steeple. 
Once you get to the lower ring, you can climb up the wall that is on the 
left back side (northwest from above.) If you get to the exact top of 
the steeple, you can triple-jump without running and fly incredibly 

Unlimited Lives - American Version:

When you start a game outside of the castle go to the second tree from 
the waterfall climb it and get the extra life. Now go into the castle 
door and comeback out again to get another life, you can keep on doing 
this forever.

Unlimited Lives - Japanese Version:

For infinite lives in the Japanese version, go to any of the Bowser 
bosses (the first is easiest). Run around Bowser and collect 1,000 of 
the coins he drops. From now on when you die you will gain a life 
instead of losing a life.

Unlimited Lives in Final Battle:

When fighting Bowser for the third time, if you get killed you can keep 
getting a 1-Up by walking behind the top left pillar.

Visit Yoshi:

1. Collect all 120 Stars
2. Go to the Castle Gardens
3. The grid near the Fish Pond will open, revealing a cannon
4. Shoot yourself onto the roof of the Castle and Yoshi will be there!
5. It's a short visit, but he'll give you 99 lives and a triple-jump 
move before he leaves!

Wet-Dry Wonders:

They say that a picture's worth a thousand words. Apparently, the 
picture of Wet-Dry World is also worth a thousand valves. You can 
control the level of water by the height of Mario's jump. If he jumps 
into the picture at a higher level, the water level is higher (and visa 
versa.) You can save lots of mucking about by choosing the right height.

Fat Penguin

After you get 120 stars go to Cool Cool Mountain and enter the chimmney. 
The penguin will now be a bit..larger. This makes it a bit harder to 
defeat him!


After you get 120 stars, use the outdoor cannon and shoot to the top of 
the castle. Walk around and you'll meet Yoshi. He'll grant you 100 lives 
and a special move!

This only works in the Japanese version. Go to the first bowser and

means that every time you DIE you GAIN a life, and vice versa.

12) Story

Will Princess Toadstool be kidnapped again? Is there no end to the 
constant feuding between Mario and Bowser?

"Mario, please come to the castle. I've baked a cake for you. Yours 
truly, Princess Toadstool."

"Wow, an invitation from Peach! I'll head out right away. I hope she can 
wait for me!" Mario is so excited to receive the invitation from the 
Princess, who lives in the Mushroom Castle, that he quickly dresses in 
his best and leaves right away.

"Hmmmm, something's not quite right here... It's so quiet..."
Shaking off his uneasy premonition, Mario steps into the silent castle, 
where he is greeted by the gruff words,

"No one's home! Now scram! Bwa, ha, ha."
The sound seems to come from everywhere.

"Who's there? I've heard that voice somewhere before..."
Mario begins searching all over the castle. Most of the doors are 
locked, but finding one open, he peeks inside. Hanging on the wall is 
the largest painting he has ever seen, and from behind the painting 
comes the strangest sound that he has ever heard...

"I think I hear someone calling. What secrets does this painting hold?"
Without a second thought, Mario jumps at the painting. As he is drawn 
into it, another world opens before his very eyes.

And so begins the grandest of all adventures!

Once inside the painting, Mario finds himself in the midst of battling 
Bob-Ombs. According to the Bob-Omb Buddies, someone...or something...has 
suddenly attacked the castle and stolen the "Power Stars". These stars 
protect the castle; with the stars in his control, the beast plans to 
take over the Mushroom Castle.

To help him accomplish this, he plans to convert the residents of the 
painting world into monsters as well. If nothing is done, all those 
monsters will soon begin to overflow from inside the painting.

"A plan this maniacal, this cunning...this must be the work of Bowser!"

Princess Toadstool and Toad are missing, too. Bowser must have taken 
them and sealed them inside the painting. Unless Mario recovers the 
Power Stars immedietly, the inhabitants of this world will become 
Bowser's army.

"Well, Bowser's not going to get away with it, not as long as I'm 

Stolen Power Stars are hidden throughout the painting world. Use your 
wisdom and strength to recover the Power Stars and restore peace to the 
Mushroom Castle.

"Mario! You are the only one we can count on."

13) Glitches

There aren't many that i know of, but here they are anyway!

The Infamous Dark Room Of Death

After collecting 120 stars, fly to the top of the castle and run up the 
front side of the peak. You'll fall into a room that's backwards, and 
black! To get out do a backflip above the door. Useless, but neat.


In courses with walls that aren't solid, such as Bomb-Omb battlefield, 
walk next to them and you'll see a ton of popup, that looks like water. 
So THAT's what walls are made of...

It's a meeee...School Dropout!

Use the FPM perspective after entering a door, you'll see "INSIDE" 
mario's head, which is well...empty. I guess all italian fat plumbers 
aren't smart like i thought...

15) "L is Real 2041"

You can find "L is Real 2041" in the courtyard of big boo's haunt. This 
could be explained in many ways. One is that this was put in when luigi 
WAS going to be in the game, and they never got around to it. Another is 
that "L" stands for something other than luigi, or it's there to tease 
you. The final possibility is that it means luigi is IN super mario 64. 
Too bad he _IS NOT_ - BUT, for those that need more proof than that, 
here are a few codes for you to fail at, courtesy of the world-of-


First get 120 stars. If you drained the water only the fish pond will be 
there. Go into the fish pond and die. This might take a couple tries. If 
its true Luigi will be waiting for you at Tick Tock Clock.


First get 120 stars then go to the cannon, after you talk to yoshi and 
get the wing cap. Shoot to the top of the castle (to get to the top of 
the castle you must shoot to the 2nd highest part of the castle and you 
can walk up one of the walls). From the top of the castle fly straight 
over the cannon and there is a small crack in the invisible wall. If you 
fly strait you can go to the islands out there each island is different. 
There is Luigi, Wario, Princess, Toad and Yoshi. Once you've done it all 
invisible walls are gone!


To find Luigi in Mario 64 you have to have 120 stars. Then enter the 
castle and run up the stairs and into the door. THEN STOP!!!! Turn 
around and go back down the stairs and into the first snow level. To 
make sure you did it right go against the right side of the wall and you 
should hear Boo's voice. Go in the picture and go to the 6th star. Beat 
the Fat penguin 7 times and then give the Mama penguin her baby. She 
will tell you to go to Big Boo's Haunt. Go there and kill all the ghosts 
and eye balls. Then go to the canon out side and shoot up to the top of 
the castle and get the 100 lives from Yoshi, get the wing cap. Then go 
back to the canon shoot up to the pointy part of the castle. This takes 
awhile and kill you, but when you get it go back to the 
canon and shoot back up there. (The roof should be gone.) Shoot up 
there, fall threw there and slam where the sun is. Then you should here 
a voice say (It's a Luigi time.) A star will pop up an you will have 121 
stars. Go back out side, get in the canon (with wing cap or not) and 
shoot at the water fall. You will see a door saying 120 stars. Go in and 
you will have 1 star left. Here you will FIGHT A HAMMER BROTHER. Hit him 
and kill him like Bowser. When he's dead he will give you another key. 
Go to the top of the castle. Here you can go in the clock base. When you 
go in you will see you are in the first water level. BUT IT'S 
BACKWARDS!!!! Go to the Boat and watch the box go by 64 times. After 
that slam on it and a hat with a L on it, a hat with a W on it, a crown, 
and a toad head will pop out. Pick them up and you will hear It's me 
Luigi, Wario, toad, and Peach. You will appear out side the castle. It 
will say a message then say save or don't save. Save 
and it will say chose your player. You may even get Yoshi. You have to 
find out. Oh yeah. Buy the way each player has a different cap!!


First of all, do not save the game!  Start the game with Mario's nose 
sticking out.  Then start a new game.  Then at the beginning go and swim 
around the whole perimeter of the out side pond.  Then go and get ten 
stars without going down into the basement.  Then go and get the winged 
cap.  Then go and get all the stars on Bobomb Battlefield, Whomps, and 
Jolly Roger Bay.  Then go into the basement and get the rabbit and boil 
the big bully.  Then go to the Princesses Secret Slide and beat it 2 
times. The second time must be in exactly 23.6 seconds then Luigi will 
pop up and  give you a star.  Then you may save.  Then at the beginning 
of the game you will then have the option of either picking Mario or 


The way to get Wario and Luigi is to get 120 stars and shoot up to the 
castle. Than get the wings and fly down. This next part takes forever. 
Shoot up from the cannon to the pointed part of the roof. Doing this 
will kill you, but the roof will be gone. In one spot, jump in and pound 
the ground where the sun is. You should get a star which makes 121. Than 
get into the cannon out side and shoot onto the waterfall. There should 
be a star door saying 120. Go in, it takes your stars so you should have 
one left. Than you will fight a Hammer Brother. Than if you beat him by 
hitting him on the bombs like Bowser 15 times, than you should get 
Luigi. In one of the stages is Wario.


Get 120 stars and get Yoshi, then go in the castle go up the stairs in 
the middle and through the door but don't go any further. Turn around 
and go down the stairs. Enter Cool, Cool Mountain, and go to the right 
wall. If you hear Boo's voice, you did it right. Then enter Cool, Cool 
Mountain and go down the chimney and beat the Fat Penguin. Then repeat 
it again until you beat him 7 times in a row. Return the Baby Penguin 
to its mom. Get the star. Run to the basement. Ignore the phony and look 
for Luigi.


Go into Big Boo's Haunt and get on top of the roof of the Big Boo 
merry-go-round by using the bouncing box.


Luigi is at the top of the Lava Fall in Lethal Lava Land inside 
the volcano.


Run around the chests inside the Sunken Ship after getting all 
120 stars clockwise and counterclockwise, then butt-stomp 
the one closest to you. A hat with a L should come out.


First, go to Princess Daisy's Secret Slide, and finish it under 15 
seconds. (it can be done). Then go out side to the Star slam it. 
Luigi, Yoshi, Wario, and Toad will appear, and you will be able
to chose which one to continue the game as!!


Beat Princess Daisys secret slide in under 20 seconds, not under 15, 
that's impossible. Then go to the outside area where the entrance to 
Big Boos Haunt is. Climb to the top of the silver star, and do a but 
slam on it, Luigi will appear in the water, give you a short message and 
give you a gift from the Mario staff of 100 lives (like Yoshi does, but 
100 rather than 50), and he will ask you if you want to continue the 
game as Luigi or Mario, and gives you the option to save.


Get all 120 of the stars in the correct order as in the SM64 player's 
guide. Go to Jolly Roger Bay go into the sunken ship, drain it and run 
around each chests individually 64 times clockwise, then run around each 
chests individually 64 times counterclockwise, then butt-stomp the chest 
that is closest to you and a hat with a L will pop out. Put it on and go 
for the star with the eel. The star will be blue and hard to see so try 
to grab the eel's tail. This will save the cap and you will be in the 
front yard and talk with Luigi. 


Get all 120 stars in some special order so that when the princess 
kisses Mario, you'll see Luigi coming up the path.


There is a warp in Big Boo's Haunt that brings you to him.


Go in the Lava Land and go in the volcano. Now there are 2 ways to
get him. Dive into the Lava Fall at just the right angle, and you will 
fall into a secret room with a painting of Luigi. Or go on one of
the poles and keep bouncing up the Lava Fall, you will see a ledge, 
if you go on it and look around, Luigi will be there!


Go in the Rainbow World where you get the 8 red coins. Go in the
cannon, aim as far right if the screen as you can, and blast. Near 
the end of your blast, you will go through a series of clouds, on the 
last cloud you will see Luigi standing. He will be glad you found him 
and then you will be Luigi in Bomb omb Battlefield.


(NOTE: You have to do these steps with out saving!!) Plug your
Controller into the 2nd Controller port. Before you turn on the 
N64, hold the joystick up to where that will be the neutral 
position. Turn on the N64. Go to file B. (You must erase if you 
have data on that file) Go to the castle door and go in. As soon 
as you enter the door, press L, R, & Start simultaneously to set 
the neutral position back to normal. Go to Bombomb Battlefield & 
get the 1st, 3rd, & 7th stars. Then go to Whomp's Fortress and
get the 1st, 6th & 7th stars. Now go to Jolly Roger Bay & get the 
1st, 5th, & 7th stars. This will give you nine stars. Go to Bowser 
in the Dark world now. Get the 8 red coins & get the star. (Don't 
fight Bowser yet.) Now go to Cool Cool Mountain and get the 6th star. 
Now go into the wing cap stage get all the 8 red coins. Don't jump 
on the red switch!!!!!!! Now go back to Bowser in the Dark World. 
Get to Bowser, but don't kill him yet. Let him keep spitting
fire & keep collecting the coins until you have 164 coins. 
Now beat Bowser. Go to the basement & unlock the door. Walk to 
your left to where you see the ramp with the blue glass covering 
it. Dive up the ramp & then go through the door. Walk down to your 
right & then jump into the pool of water. Swim forward until
you get to the other side. Jump onto one of the poles & do the 
butt slam. Then jump on the other pole & do the butt slam to 
drain the water. Go out the metal door at the bottom. Now go into 
the vanish cap stage. Go into the stage and work your way to the 
blue switch. Once you have jumped on it, just jump off the side to 
exit the stage. Now go back to Jolly Roger Bay. Go to star 2 & go
to the ship. You will see the box with a poison symbol on it. Let 
the box go left 64 times & go right 64 times. After it has gone 
back & fourth 64 times, butt slam it. Instead of hurting you, 
the box will burst and a green hat will come out of it. Pick it 
up and Mario will spin around and say "It's-a-Luigi-time!" You 
will be sent out of the stage. Now you can go upstairs
without beating Bowser in the Fire Sea. Go to the hall of mirrors. 
When you walk in there, jump on top of the 1st pole you come to. 
Do the butt slam on the pole 6 times. Then go to the pole in front 
of the Goomba painting & jump onto it. Do the butt slam 4 times on 
it. All of a sudden Luigi will appear in the mirror in front of the 
Goomba painting. Punch him and he will come out. Now he will follow you 
wherever you go & you can switch between who plays by pushing L. When 
you find Luigi, he will give you a star, the 121st star.

series of punches. this should topple him, now go run accross the 
falling platforms to collect your star!

Ok i was wrong, they get harder, at least this one does! this is a fun 
boss, just punch the one hand that is vulnerable while the other one

No Bosses In This Level.

End Of 8 Star Door: Bowser 1

Ok, this is easy, VERY easy, pick him up, throw him about 3 inches 
towards a bomb, now run pick him up again, throw him 3 inches, 
repeat..once he hits the bomb he will be toast, yes it only takes 1 hit!

here is he has new moves, not too much more difficult however.

Ok, this time he's bigger, rainbow colered, and takes 3 hits. I will 
leave you to beat him on your own, since he's the last boss. all i will 
say is do the same thing as you have on the past 2 bowsers, and be 
prepared for much more! good luck!

19) Walkthrough

I originally was going to make just a "fun guide" and not the 
walkthrough. But, i figured there was no harm in making one, so here we 
go! This will be complete REALLY SOON...

****************** LEVEL ONE: BOB-OMB BATTLEFIELD ********************

Star #001 - Bombs Away

Starting near the friendly bob-ombs, cross the first bridge you see, and 
head left past the chomp. Then cross the next tilting bridge, and run 
across the bubblefield, where bubbles will be fired at you from above. 
Enter the gate with an opening and proceed through the pit, jumping past 
the huge black balls. Take the warp in the side of the mountain, then 
continue a short way up to the top. Talk to the king bob-omb to fight! 
You'll need to pick him up from behind 3 times and throw him. After that 
he will explode, leaving you with the first star!

Star #002 - My Grandma Can Run Faster Than You

From the start, go to the left a bit to find a HUGE koopa. He'll 
challenge you to a race -- first one to the top wins! When the race 
starts cross the first bridge and hop over to the flower area to the 
right. Stand in the middle and warp, then continue up the mountain. Use 
the warp in the mountainside, and climb the sort remaining distance to 
the top! He'll concede defeat and grant you the 2nd star.

Star #003 - Up Up and Away!

Talk to the red bombs at the start and they will open up the cannons for 
use! Cross the first bridge and head right, into the cannon. Aim for the 
tip of the floating island and pull straight back. You'll land on the 
island perfectly. Go under the "!" block and hit it, and out pops one of 
the easiest stars in the game!

Star #004 And Star #005 - I Need Money!

You'll want to collect the 100-coin star at this point, as well as the 8 
red coins. I'm not going to list them all, that's what the coin lists 
are for. However, here are a few:

Running around the 4 posts - 20 (20)
The 8 red coins - 16 (36)
The 23 enemies in the level - 23 (59)
Running around chain chomp's post - 5 (64)
Coins along the mountain side - 10 (74)
Coins under the first bridge - 5 (79)
Coins around the first warp, in the bubblefield - 8 (87)
The big block and small block at the start - 6 (93)
Use the cannon to get 4 coins in the sky - 4 (97)
The small block near the 4 posts - 3 (100)

And here are the locations of the red coins!

#1 - On the elevator near chain chomp

#2 - On chain chomp's post

#3 - Next to the 4 posts

#4 - Ditto

#5 - Near the warp in the bubblefield, next to a 1-up in a brown hole.

#6 - Up the steep mountainside, just walk up to get it.

#7 - All the way back to the right of chain chomp, on a black rock

#8 - Up to the floating island, via the cannon nearby. It's on a tree

Now get in the cannon, and fire away. You'll land RIGHT next to the 
star, among the posts.

Star #006 - One Bad Ass Dog

Head to chain chomp, across the first bridge. You'll notice a star 
behind bars. To open this you'll need to stomp the post chomp is on 
THREE times. Once this happens, he'll break the gate, and you have 
another star!

Star #007 - Look mom no wings!

Yes you can do this without the wing cap, and you WILL! Head to the 
floating island via the cannon(s). And enter the cannon. You will now 
need to fire 3 shots to get all 5 secret coins. It should only take 3 
tries as well. Here are the shots:

#1 - Leave the cannon as is and fire! You'll get #1

#2 - Aim for the center coin of the first ring and fire.  You'll get #2, 
#3, and #4!

#3 - Aim for the TOP coin of the first ring. Fire...and you have the 
last coin!

Congratulations, you've beaten the first world. Now go see the 
appropriate section and collect the first two secret stars. Once you 
have them both, enter bowser's realm. Collect the star there as well 
(again see the designated section on that) and beat him. Now you have 10 
stars and access to levels 1-8. Back to the main floor, and look up from 
the carpet. Collect the EASY star there, and hit the switch, which will 
now allow you to use the wing cap! After ALL of that, head to world 2 - 
located in the 1 star door on the RIGHT of the main level.

********************* LEVEL TWO: WHOMP'S FORTRESS *********************

Star #001 - Rock Bashing

Climb your way to the top of the tower, it's very straightforward so i 
won't give directions. When you get to the top you'll fight a HUGE 
whomp. He is defeated just like the other whomps, by making them fall 
and pounding them. Do this 3 times and victory is yours! 12 stars and 

Star #002 - Climb the tower

This is even easier than star #001! Climb back to where the whomp was, 
only this time a tower will be there, in spiral form. Climb it patiently 
and at the top you'll be rewarded with a star!

Star #003 - I Hope I Don't Miss...

Head to the cannon and talk to the bomb, who will open it up. Aim to the 
left for the pole. Hope you hit it or it's bye-bye mario. If you do hit 
your target, climb the pole to the star!

Star #004 - Mario Gets Brain Trauma...

...as well as a star! Head to the cannon again, and aim right. You'll 
see two brick corners. Aim for the right corner and fire! You'll break 
the side of the wall, and a star will appear. Now fire again into the 
star and you're all done!

Star #005 - Lay Off The Pasta Mario!

Jump into the tree and you'll meet an owl. Grab onto his talons and your 
off to the sky! Fly around until you reach the caged star. Drop down 
into the 'basket' of sorts, and instead of two points, you'll get the 
star. Or you could make a skilled cannon shot...your choice!

Star #006 And Star #007 - Frantic Fortress Coin Search

You'll want to get the 100-coin star, and the red coin stars at the same 
time, so here they are, starting with the red coins.

#1 - By the blocks at the start

#2 - On top of a Thwomp.

#3 - Behind the second pihrana in the level.

#4 - Next to the rotating bridge.

#5 - Below the bridge, on a steep slope.

#6 - On an island in the air.

#7 - Ditto.

#8 - Err, i forgot! I'm sure you can find it...

And for the coin locations:

The blue-coin block near the cannon - 20 (20)
The eight red coins - 16 (36)
The coin circle in the water - 8 (44)
The two coin lines at the start - 10 (54)
The pihrana plants - 15 (69)
The whomps - 18 (87)
The coins on the sky islands - 8 (95)
The coins on bridge next to the rotating platform - 5 (100)

There isn't anything to do in the overworld yet, except head to the 
jolly roger bay lobby. NOW there is something to do, and that is get the 
secret star in this room. See that section for details, then enter World 
3 - Jolly Roger Bay!

******************** LEVEL THREE: JOLLY ROGER BAY *********************

#001 - Treasure of the sunken ship

Swim down to the deepest part of the level, and you'll find a HUGE 
sunken ship with an eel in it. Lure the eel out, and swim in the hole he 
was guarding. You'll now need to open 4 chests in this order, facing 
them as you come in. Top, Middle Left, Middle Right, Bottom. The ship 
will rise to the surface. Before the water drains swim to the top and 
hit the box, getting the star!

#002 - An unlikely Playmate

Swim to the deepest part of the level again, and you'll now see that the 
eel is in the wall of the ocean.  Lure him out, as in star #001, and 
you'll see a star on his tail! Carefully grab it from him before he goes 
back in the wall, and you're done!

#003 - Treasure of the ocean cave

Swim to the ocean cave, located in the deepest part of the level. When 
you surface you'll be in a cave with pillars that fall on you. Run 
through them all AFAYK, and you'll come to 4 chests. Open them in this 
order to get a star: Top, Middle Left, Middle Right, Bottom.

#004 - Back to the Depths of the Ocean...

You'll need the metal cap for this star, as you need to be able to sink. 
Grab the metal cap in the level and jump in the deep end, again! In the 
very middle surrounded by bubbles you'll be rewarded with this difficult 

#005 and #006 - Treasure of the sea

This is quite a long level to get the 2 coin-related stars. I won't 
present a coin list as you need EVERY coin in the level (a total of 101) 
to get the star. Here is the red coin list, however:

#1 - In a clam in the level

#2 - Ditto

#3 - Ditto

#4 - Ditto...is there an echo in the building?

#5 - On the pole next to the lone bob-omb buddie in the level.

#6 - On the bridge leading to the ship.

#7 - On the left of the star marker, on the ship.

#8 - On the right of the star marker, on the ship. Guess where the star 

#007 - Aiming For Star Seven

Talk to the bob-omb buddie in the level, located near the wall on the 
right. Now head back to the start where the cannon is located, and hop 
in. Aim for the tall part of the pole closest to the ledge to the left. 
When you land on the pole, jump onto the ledge, and hit the box, 
revealing the final star of the level!

Now head out of the lobby, and to the left side of the main level. Enter 
the only 3-star door not opened yet and jump in the center picture. You 
are now in Cool Cool Mountain!

******************* LEVEL FOUR: COOL COOL MOUNTAIN ********************

Star #001 - Do I LOOK Like Santa Claus To You?

At the start hop down the chimney and you'll be revealed with a icey 
slide. Start down it and collect the coins if you want, it doesn't 
matter unless you get 50. When you see 5 coins leading to a wall, go 
into it and you'll be in a secret shortcut with 3 1-ups. At the end, 
exit the lodge and a star will appear! Aren't you the lucky one?

Star #002 - Lose the Little One Again?

Climb up the chimney and above, and grab the little penguin. Your 
mission is to take it down to the mama penguin at the bottom. You 
probably saw it when you got the first star. Slide down at the 
beginning, passing a huge snowball. Go across the bridge, being careful 
of the snowmen. Now continue down the mountain, and talk to the mom at 
the end. She'll thank you, and give you a star as well!

Star #003 - Beware the penguins...

Hop down the chimney again, and this time a penguin is there! He'll 
challenge you to a race, with the prize being a star. Beware that you 
can't take the shortcut, as that is cheating. My prefrence is to belly 
slide, let him pass you, then dust him once you pass the shortcut wall. 
This is acutally pretty easy, so just go AFAYK and you'll be fine!

Star #005 and #006 - Snow, Slush, and Coins

As always, time to get two stars in one try! First, as always, the 100-
coin star, and the list:

Coins on the slide (not all of them) - 74 (74)
The Eight Red Coins - 16 (90)
The Two Blue Coins - 10 (100)

Well, that was easy, now for the eight freezing coins.

#1 - Atop a tree at the start...easy.

#2 - In the corner next to the snowman head.

#3 - At the top part of the chairlifts.

#4 - On the broken bridge, near the star marker.

#5 - On the tree next to the mother penguin

#6 - On the edge of the level, next to the mama penguin again.

#7 - On the broken bridge, next to mama penguin. Use the warp after 
collecting it.

#8 - Slide down again, and jump off at the first hole to the right. 
You'll be next to the final coin!

Star #006 - Are We Playing Metroid or Mario?

Open up the cannons, and then hop in the one next to the mama penguin. 
Shoot to the tree across the chasm, then follow the skinny path with 2 
whirly-things. Now you'll need to wall-kick twice along a slippery path 
to collect this fun star!

Star #007 - Where's my other ball?

At the start climb up and go left, finding a huge snowball. Remember the 
snowball at the bottom missing it's other half? Well obviously talk to 
the guy, and race him to the other part. Stand in front of it at the 
end, and you'll get nailed. However, the snowman is complete! For this 
kind deed you are awarded a star.

Head down the stairs, but not the basement yet. Instead go outside, 
following the ghost. Kill the huge ghost in the courtyard, and enter the 
minature carousel. Welcome to the world of Big Boo's Haunt. Creepy ain't 

********************* LEVEL FIVE: BIG BOO'S HAUNT *********************

Star #001 - Ghost Hunt

Scattered throughout the level are ghosts, that give away a blue coin 
when killed. Run through the level killing them all. When you hear a 
ghost cackle, that means you've killed them all. Now go to the main area 
of the mansion, and there will be a huge boo. 3 hits and it's gone, go 
up the now availible stairs, and get the star!

Star #002 - That...music...is....haunting

Time to go for a ride on big boo's sadistic carousel. Head into the 
small shack outside and down the elevator. Follow the music and your on 
the carousel. Simply kill the small boo's *easy*, and then the big one 
that takes three hits. Boring, and repetative...just the way i like it!

Star #003 and #004 - I'm out of fancy coin titles.

As always, the yellow coin star first...

Coins From Boos - 55 (55)
Coins From Eyes - 15 (70)
Coins From Blue Switch - 20 (90)
Eight Red Coins - 16 (106)
Coins From Books - 15 (121)
Coins From Spiders - 9 (130)
Coins From Bouncy Block - 5 (135)
Coins From Big Block Behind House - 10 (145)
Two Big Blocks Outside - 6 (151)

...and for dessert, 8 haunting red coins.

#1 - Behind the mad piano.

#2 - On a bookcase, in a room off of the main area in the mansion.

#3 - Ditto.

#4 - On the second floor, in a coffin, in the coffin area.

#5 - Ditto...i'm lazy.

#6 - In a room to the left off of the second floor in the mansion.

#7 - Main area, in a room on the right.

#8 - Second floor, On a tilting platform.

The star appears in the main area...yeehaw.

#005 - I C 3 Books.

Go to the second floor in the main area, and go into the small area with 
a lot of bookcases. Walk to the end where you'll find 3 books. First hit 
the top one, then the bottom, then the...other one ;). THe bookcases 
will move, revealing the star.

#006 - Fight Big Boo Again

Go to the door on the right in the main area on the second floor. Look 
up with C-Up if you don't know where to wall kick, and when you do, get 
to the ledge above. Through the door and it's another fight with boo. 
*yawn* 3 kicks\punches\etc, he's gone. Crawl to the star atop the roof 
and you're set.

#007 - The Secret Eye

This is easy to explain, but of average difficulty to do. Get the blue 
cap, and head to where star 6 is. Instead, go through the big boo 
picture, and it's a big ass eye. Just run around him. How can he see you 
if you are invisible? :)

Now go downstairs and catch the bunny, and get the star from toad. After 
that, you're ready to enter hazy maze cave, which is, in my opinion, the 
most boring level in the game.
