If you need a guide there is a picture on the top screen when you are at the starting screen. After hitting it go through the puzzle and you will get the Waluigi key!

Getting To The Top Of The Castle

It is possible to get to the top of the castle BEFORE you get all 150 Stars. Get Mario and then walk out to the courtyard. Go to the very right of the map where the ramp leads down into the moat. See where the castle makes a 90 degree angle? That's the key. Tripple jump over to it so that you are still high in the air when you hit the wall. Then wall kick your way up to the top. NOTE: This is EXTREMLEY hard to do so don't get frusterated when it doesn't work.

Rabbit For Luigi

Go to the area with all the ghosts and where the door is located. Jump, then grab the ledge. Climb it, then jump up again. There should be a green rabbit up there.

Character's Stats





The ? Switch

When you defeat Bowser #1, go to the main hall. There will be a light pointing on the round mat. Go in that light and look up. You will be taken to a secret level. Fly a little down and you should see a peice of land. Go down to it and the ? switch will be there. Step on it and all the ? blocks will become solid. Note: It will be better to do this with mario.

Princess Toadstools Secret Slide

Enter the room where all the characters and their doors are and there are 2 stainglass windows. Jump into the one on the right and run down the slide. At the end of the slide their is a box. Break it open and there is a star inside.

Through The Jet Stream Star

Enter the Jolly Roger Bay level with Wario. Once you do that go to the cave at the end of the level, after that there is a red box at the opening of the cave. Get it and there is a Power Flower inside. Now you can walk underwater. So walk out of the cave and at the bottom of the hole there is a star that you can now grab. NOTE: If you already have Wario there is a Wario cap in the cave so you don't have to have him when you enter the cave.

Make Mother Penguin Mad

In Cool, Cool Mountain, return the baby penguin back to her mother. Once you've returned it, take the baby away then the mother penguin will be mad.

Luigi's Hat, But No Luigi

This is more of a fact than a hint but if you go to the stage Big Boo's Haunt and do the level Big Boo's Balconey and you run around the castle to the left you will find a door. Go in the door you will see 2 Boos one will be plain so knock it out first or it will interfere with taking the hat, after you knock out the plain boo knock out the one with the hat take the hat and become Luigi! But if you hold the jump button he will start swinging his legs but that won't help you jump. The sounds are different from the real Luigi, but who cares?

Make Toad Wear Your Cap

To do this, lose your cap in any level where you can lose it, then leave the level without the cap. After that get any star and then go back to the main hall. Toad will be wearing your cap. He will say that he found it. This is an easier way of getting your hat back.

Use Red Blocks

Once you have 10 stars, go to the main room of the castle and you will see sunlight coming down from the ceiling. Stand where the sunlight is and look straight up. You will go into the Big Switch level where you'll have to collect 8 red coins by using Mario's wing cap. Remember to hit the big red switch, that way you can use the red blocks now. To do this, you must play as Mario.

Star Bonus
