Hint: Easy money:
This trick should work after the Chucklehut Brothers teach Mario and Luigi their hammer techniques. Have Luigi use his hammer to shrink Mario.. Then, perform their "high jump technique", but have mini Mario jump at Luigi before Luigi can land on Mario. You will gain one coin. Repeat this to get as many coins as desired. Note: This was done after getting to the university section of the game. Note: Hitting Luigi for one coin will lower Luigi's HP by one point. He will only "yelp" when his HP reaches 1. However, you can still spend some of the bonus stats that you get at level up on the "Stach" stat (which discounts the items in the shops) and buy mushrooms at the castle town and recycle (i.e. use the "Easy money" trick then buy mushrooms to heal him and gradually generate money).

When you meet Thowomp (giant stone man in Hammer Bros. cave) for the second time, save the game. Play his game and if you do not get any money, turn off the Game Boy Advance and you will start over. Keep doing this until you get 9999 coins.

Hint: Beanbean Castle Town: Picture discount:
In Beanbean town, you can find someone who will take your picture for 100 coins. This is useless unless you do not like the passport picture that you got on the Koopa Cruiser. When he asks you if you want your picture taken, say "No". He will drop the price down to 50 coins. No further discounts can be obtained.

Hint: Bean Bean Castle Town: Winking Beanbean:
Enter Castle Town through the east gate. There will be a person leaning on a building. Walk in front of him and one eye will shut, as if he is winking at you.

Hint: Beanbean Castle town: Getting items:
In the Starbeans Cafe at Beanbean Castle Town, try to make one of each drink. When you first brew a drink, Dr. E Gadd from Luigi's Mansion will give you an item. Note: You may have to wait until you complete the Repaired Koopa Kruiser part of the game (immediately after Joke's End.)
Information in this section was contributed by ShadowGamer20.

Make every type of coffee at Starbeans (there are seven of them), and Professor E. Gadd will leave a picture of himself at the cafe. Also, he will give you a Game Boy Horror SP. This is one of the items you can equip like the Greed Wallet and Great Force. When you wear it and defeat enemies, you will get some rare and good items, but only if the enemies actually yield items at all. Do this to get clothes like Anuboo Jeans and Random Trousers.
Information in this section was contributed by Astrolloger.

Every time you make a new blend of bean coffee at Starbeans Cafe, you will get a secret item that you can equip for battles. There are seven blends and seven items. Here are the items in the order of how you get them:

Greed Wallet: Get double the money from enemies you defeat.
Bonus Ring: Get double the experience points from enemies if you do not get hurt during the battle.
Excite Spring: On jump defense, you wil hang in the air for a second.

Gameboy Horror SP: Get rare items from all enemies, including pants and badges from certain ones.

Hint: Beanbean Castle Town: Free information:

Hint: Beanbean Castle Town: Easy experience:
Go to your left and get out of Beanbean Castle Town. Move north and you will find a monster sitting on a cloud, throwing spiky monsters at you. Use your High Jump to enter a battle with him. Note: Do not kill the monster sitting on a cloud; just kill the other monsters on the battlefield. Also, just keep missing the cloud monster to get more experience. Note: This will take some time.
Information in this section was contributed by sheila hernandez.

This trick requires the Bonus Ring and the Great Force equipped to the brothers. Go out to north of the castle and stomp (not hammer) enemies. Obviously, do not do this on spiky enemies. If you are powerful enough, you can kill them with one hit (with the help of Great Force). This will, with the effect of the Bonus Ring, give you double experience and help you level up very rapidly.

Hint: Bowser's Castle: Easy way to complete breakable wall tunnel:
In the corridor with breakable walls in Bowser's Castle, you may think that you have to hammer them all. If you do this, however, you will never reach the end in time, even if you are very fast. Instead, hit the "!" block then immediately use Mario's Firehand technique on Luigi (the one that allows him to run really fast). You will run through all the walls and smash them, reaching the end with plenty of time.
Information in this section was contributed by Astrolloger.

Hint: Bowser's Castle: Mini-game:
When you must go to Bowser's Castle, go to the Game Arcade in Little Fungitown. And there will be another game that you can play. It is the same as the "Barrel" game played on the S.S. Chuckola ship to get your Membership Card.
Information in this section was contributed by devante.

Hint: Chateau de Chucklehuck: Get through barrels near the entrance:
Go in, make sure Mario is in front, and keep going in these directions until you cannot walk further: up, right, up, left. You should now be at a gap where you can see Mario and Luigi. Move down, left, down, left, up, right, up. You should be at another gap. Move right, up, left, down, left, down. You should now be at another gap. Move right, down, left (but only when in line with the exit), the move down. You should have made it through, but the person following Mario when you get out is not Luigi.

Hint: HooHoo Village: Getting to Bowser's Castle:
When you are done talking to Queen Bean and Lady Lima, Lady Lima will give you a little hint saying "Isn't there someone who can fly anywhere in our kingdom". You may think the airport is the place to go, however the airplanes are under repair. Go to HooHoo Village and talk to Blablanadon. He will offer you a ride to Bowser's Castle.
Information in this section was contributed by Justin Bianchini.

Hint: HooHoo Village: Free mushrooms and easy money:
When you get the hammer, go to HooHoo Village. Go into the cave at the bottom that leads to the waterfall with the Hoohoolian that says "My pores are rejoicing". Switch Mario to the front and place Luigi with his hammer in the back. Go to the fountain and have Mario suck up the water. You just have to stand in the water, then walk down the screen and follow the path. You will see a fan. Go just in front of the fan and hit Mario with the hammer. This will cause the blade to spin and a coin or mushroom will appear. The first ten times mushrooms should appear. After that, two coins then a mushroom will appear. After you smash the rock blocking your way that Fawful put in front of you, go down to the town. The town will be destroyed. Go into the item/clothing shop and sell your mushrooms. They sell for 25 coins each. However if your Mustache points are high enough, the mushrooms will sell for more.

Hint: Jokes End: Easy experience:
Note: You may want to be at least level 45 for this trick. Equip the Great Force to whichever brother has the higher POW. On the other brother, equip the Bonus Ring. Go to the Jokes End (number 9 if using a green pipe). Try to jump on the enemies before the battle. You should level quickly. Also make sure Luigi has School Slacks. By doing this he will attack immediately after Mario.
Information in this section was contributed by Mike Laframboise.

Hint: Northeast Beanbean: Secret Scrolls:
When you get your second and third hammers from the Hammerhead Bros. in NE Beanbean, go right. Keep going to find two areas blocked off by boulders. Inside each is a Thwomp who will play a game with you. The first one requires 200 coins, and the second one wants 500 coins. Three boulders will fall down. Smash one of them, and if you are lucky, you will get a secret scroll which basically gives you a new Bros. Attack. Secret Scroll 1 is for Mario, and Secret Scroll 2 is for Luigi.
Information in this section was contributed by Astrolloger.

Secret scrolls have a secret Bros. attack in them. When you find the Hammer Bros. new underground cave, get the hammer and go to the bottom right corner. As you can see, there will be rocks. These rocks are blocking doors where you can get the scrolls. The first door can be broken with a super hammer, and the next with a ultra hammer. The doors each have a Thwomp in it. Talk to it and it will ask if you want to smash one of three rocks for 500 coins in the first door and 800 in the second, because you might get a special prize which is the scroll. Keep trying until you guess the correct rock. After two or three tries, you will start getting 300 coins from the first door game and 500 coins for the second door game so you can keep playing. Secret Scroll #1 is Mario's Swing Bros. attack. Secret Scroll #2 is Luigi's Cyclone Bros. attack.

Hint: Oho Oasis: Molten Jees:
On Oho Oasis island, when you have mastered the Thunderhand and Firebrand techniques, go up to an Oho Jee and use the hand technique on them. Set the red ones on fire and shock the green ones to fight them. You will get Molten Jee Slacks for defeating them, after which they will return to normal and joke about it.
Information in this section was contributed by Astrolloger.

Hint: Stardust Fields: More monsters to battle:
In the Stardust Fields (Beanbean Side), you will encounter a Boss that demands 100 coins to free Bowser. You can find these coins in boxes or by battling the monsters. When you cannot find any more monsters to battle for coins, return to the Boss with only the coins you have. He will revive all the monsters you have already defeated, giving you more opportunities to battle monsters for more coins.
Information in this section was contributed by XMidnightxSkyzX.

Hint: Teehee Valley: Two moles:
Go to the Beanbean entrance to Teehee Valley, but do not go in. Go left until you see a cave. Once you are inside, have Luigi shrink Mario. Once Mario is in the hole, he will have to go through an obstacle course. Once you get to the end, do not talk to the mole. Instead, jump onto the two platforms that are going up and down near him. Stay on the one closer to the mole. You should see a little ledge at the top of the screen. Jump onto it, and then jump to the right. Mario should not be onscreen. Keep moving right until you see another mole and a green pipe. Note: You will have to go through it again to get to the first mole that you you saw.

Hint: Teehee Valley: Defeating the shadow cats:
Look at the form they take before they attack. It will change to Mario or Luigi, which shows who they are going to attack.
Information in this section was contributed by Carrie McKenzie.

Hint: West Beanbean: Golden mushroom:
Go in to West Beanbean (on the map, go to the left directly next to the castle). When there, you will see a hole in the cliff. Go down and left until you see a big fence. Hit Luigi with any hammer and make him go under the fence. Go into the cave and get through the "mini-level". Then, talk to Monty Mole. He will give you a unique Golden Mushroom which refills all of your HP and BP.

Hint: Woohoo Hooniversity: Statue puzzle:
There is a room with a group of statues with either blue or red balls in the center. You have to hit the statues in the following order. Note: B indicates a blue statue and R indicates a red statue.
Information in this section was contributed by mindlesspit.

  R R R B

And then a second time:

  R B R R

Hint: Woohoo Hooniversity: Viruses:
In Woohoo Hooniversity, you will face the viruses from Dr. Mario as common enemies. There is an easy way to defeat them -- get them all the same color. To do this, hit them to change them to the next color. Hit blue to change it to yellow, hit red to change it to blue, and hit yellow to change it to red. Once all the viruses on the screen are the same color, they will explode and be defeated.
Information in this section was contributed by Astrolloger.

Hint: Woohoo Village: Easy coins:
Once in Woohoo Village, go to the very southeast end. When you see a fountain of water, have Mario get in front of it and drink the water. Then, go south then west and you will see a cannon. Go up to it. By now you will have High Jump. Make Luigi High Jump on Mario and he will spray water in the cannon. A coin will pop out. Repeat this as many times as desired.

Hint: Defeating Bowletta:
Have Mario equipped with the Casual Slacks, Tank Bade, and Greed Wallet; and Luigi with the Queen B. Jeans, Muscle Badge, and Bonus Ring. There are two rounds with Bowletta. The first is actually the easiest. Bowletta starts the round with a flame attack that you can only avoid if you hit blocks above Mario's and Luigi's head and then jump at the correct moment. Bowletta may do an attack where she charges by chomping her jaws then spits out a number of fireballs. Note: Not all of the fireballs will be aimed at Mario and Luigi. Three of the fireballs will stay on the floor. Try to destroy these as soon as possible as Bowletta will absorb them and gain health. When you get close to defeating her, she will change color and a emit a group of stars. They will launch at Mario and Luigi. Note: You only have to use the mallets on the green and red stars; the purple ones can be avoided. When you defeat her, an intermission sequence will start. When Mario and Luigi do their victory dance, a Bomb-Om will appear behind them and wipe them out. Bowletta will then suck them up in her belly What follows is the difficult part of the battle. You will find Cackletta's true form. It starts out very difficultly, as you start out at 1 HP. Cackletta will start with a lot of different attacks. Her arms have two attacks. In the first, her hands will get very close to Mario and Luigi. This is very easy to counterattack because you have plenty of time to use the mallets. In the second attack, she pulls her arms out to her sides then has them rotate around her. You must watch how they are positioned as they will go high and low. Her head has about five attacks. The first attack is when she charges up an energy ball and launches it at Mario and Luigi. This one of the more interesting attacks because you have to hit it with a mallet four times to destroy it. The second attack is an electric ball that appears in front of Mario or Luigi. You must hit it with a mallet, then it will go for the other brother and you have hit it again. As you progress in the battle the number of times you must hit it increases. The third attack features two fireballs will start spinning around Mario and Luigi. You must have both brothers jump at the same time to dodge it. The pattern is random and it starts spinning more as you progress. The fourth attack only appears when you are getting close to winning. This is the most annoying attack. Her eyes will start moving around, and when they stop time will freeze and she shoots two lasers. The only way to dodge this is when her eyes are moving it shows which direction to jump to before the time freezes. In the fifth type of attack she just heals one of her limbs. The only way to injury her is to destroy the arms and heads. Then, her heart will be revealed. You must attack her heart to do any damage. Note: She will regenerate her head and arms. You can still hurt her as long as her heart is exposed. The heart will do an attack that either regenerates any limbs you destroyed or heal them. Note: The heart does this to all body parts at the same time. If you manage to avoid most attacks and heal when necessary, you will be victorious.

Put the Hermaphic pants on Mario with the Castle Badge and Great Force and use Advance Swing Bros. Luigi will have a smashing time in the Beanstar Pants, with Tank Badge and Excite Springs, using Knockback and Cyclone Bros., both Advance. The Beanstar Pants allow you to go first in the battle with the Spirit Of Cackletta; it is recommended that you Max Nuts immediately,
Information in this section was contributed by joaofranco.2.

First, train Mario and Luigi to at least level 40. Have Mario's POW to at least 150 and Luigi's to at least 120. Equip them both with Queen Bean Jeans, and Spiny Badge AA. Then, equip Great Force to Luigi and Colbat Necktie to Mario. Go in the fight with lots of items. When you fight Bowletta, use level 3 Splash Bros (which is better than Advanced, surprisingly) and level 3 Advanced Knockback Bros. If you are strong enough, you should defeat Bowletta in four attacks. If you do not, attack the fire balls on the ground because they heal her.
Information in this section was contributed by goku1292.

On your first turn, jump on Bowletta with Mario. With Luigi, sucessfully use the Thunder Bros. attack. Bowletta's defense will decrease. Then, use Splash Bros. and Bounce Bros. If Bowletta turns black, use Knockback and Chopper Bros. It is possible to defeat her in less than five turns by doing this.
Information in this section was contributed by zack shink.

You will need the following items: Game Boy Horror SP, Wool Trousers, Mari-Lui Badge (equip these to Luigi); and the Mushwin Pants, Great Force, and the Mush Badge AA (equip these to Mario). First, go to the following places: Woohoo University, Teehee Valley, Joke's End, Bowsers Castle (optional), and Chucklehuck Woods. Defeat every non-Boss enemy. Then, take the items that they drop (except the Mushrooms which will power-up Mario with the help of the Mush Badge AA), and sell them at the corresponding shops For example, pants and badges at the equipment shop and other items at the other shop. Use this money to stock up on necessary healing and bros. Point restoring items. Fighting the enemies will also earn experience points. When you gain a level, concentrate your bonus points on your speed (Luigi) and your defense (Mario). Then, play the mini-games to get Hee Beans and fight the monsters just outside of the Beanbean Castle area to get Woo Beans. Use beans to get the Teeheexpresso (add 6 points to a random stat), the Woohoo Blend (add 4 points to your HP stat), and the Teehee Blend (add 4 points to your Stache' points stat ). Use these to get good (if not perfect) stats. When you have at least perfect health stache' points stats (so you will almost always get a "lucky" hit), face Bowletta previously listed items equipped. When you fight Bowletta, remember to make Luigi faster than Mario so he can heal them. When not using Luigi to heal the brothers, use his Advanced Knockback Bros. attack to hurt Bowletta severely. Do not use Mario's Fire Bros. attack, as it will heal her. Also make sure that you have as many Mushrooms as you can carry so Mario can do maximum damage with the Mush Badge AA and Great Force. This also works for the Koopas.
Information in this section was contributed by William Love.

Your first fight with Bowletta is easy. To make it easier, use Luigi's electricity attack to make Bowletta's defense go down. Now whenever she attacks, they will not be as strong as they are supposed to be. This strategy also works on the second fight, but it does not work with Mario (his attack raises the health). Also, when you attack the heart during the second fight with Luigi's electric attack, it gives it health -- try to avoid it.
Information in this section was contributed by olio910.

If you are level 27 or higher, go around the castle to fight enemies to get stronger and to get Coins. Make sure that one of the Bros. has the Greed Wallet. Try to get over 7,000 Coins. This may take some time. Then, go to Beanbean Castle Town and stock up on items and equipment. Then, go back to Bowleta wearing the strong equipment you bought. Try to give Luigi equipment that gives him the first strike. Try to give Mario the Great Force. During the battle have Luigi use Thunder Bros. Bowletta's defense will be lowered. When it is Mario's turn, have him use the first Bros. attack for the entire battle, unless Bowletta turns black. Then, use Chopper Bros. for the rest of the battle. When it is Luigi's second turn, keep using Knockback Bros. Forget about the healing fireballs. You will still defeat Bowletta quickly. To dodge the fireball attack keep making the Bros. jump when the fireball comes toward you. To dodge the flame breath attack, first make both Bros. jump at the same time until the machine breaks. Then, time your jump correctly to dodge the fire. When Bowletta turns dark, she is about to unleash her star attack. Reds will go to Mario, greens to Luigi, and Purple to no one. Hammer them when they go toward you.

It is possible to defeat Bowletta through both forms in one turn. To do this, equip the Bowser Fist to Mario and the Bowser Fang to Luigi. Use an Advanced Splash Brothers on her to steal a Max Nuts. Note: It does not really matter what jeans or item is equipped; just make sure to raise you defense a lot. After you use the Splash Brothers on Bowletta, it should do somewhere about 200 to 250 damage, which should send her through her first form. Then on Luigi's turn, use an Advanced Thunder Brothers on her to do another 150 to 200 damage (because of the Bowser Fang). On her turn, she will most likely use the energy ball attack. However, also be ready for her flamethrower. Once her first attack ends, she will start to laugh and you will hear a crunching noise. She will then transform into her black Bowletta form. After her falling star attack, the enter battle will be over in only one turn. A short intermission sequence will start, and she swallows the Mario Bros. Use the Max Nuts you stole from her in her earlier form. Then, attack her hands with Advanced only Thunder and Fire attacks. This should get rid of them fast. Use Thunder on the back hand and Fire on the front. They are weak against those attacks. After you kill her hands, start attacking her head until her heart appears. Start using Advanced Cyclone and Knockback on the heart. Try to get as many in as possible to do at least 100 damage to the heart. The Bowser Fang and Fist should help. Keep doing this until she repeatedly uses the eyebeam attack. Be careful, as the thunder effects of her hands are like yours and will lower defense (Burn could also be inflicted). She normally uses this combo to do maximum damage to you. Although the eyebeam does a lot of damage, it is possible to dodge it. Watch her eyes. The front one is Luigi's and the back one is Mario's. If she is looking up on an eye, do not jump with that person. However, do jump if it looks down. If you develop a routine on her attacks (she does have one, but it is different every the game is started), then you should be able to defeat her in about three minutes. Make sure to keep you health and BP up.

Have the Scandal Pants on Luigi, and the #1 Trousers on Mario. Also have the Mush Badge AA on Mario and Luigi. Although you may think the Spiny Badge AA is stronger, it actually is not, and is only more effective on spiny creatures. When you first challenge Bowletta, first use the Cyclone Bros. with Luigi. You can get that at the place where you can get the Ultra Hammer, where the Thwomp challenges you to hit one of the rocks for 200 coins. You can keep trying until you get the new Bros. attack, Cyclone Bros. Then with Mario, use the Chopper Bros. Advance (press A(2), B, A, B, A, B, A and eventually it will miss). Keep doing these attacks until you "win". After you "defeat" her, you will be sent inside of her, where you will fight Cackletta's Spirit. You must destroy the head and both arms (using the Cyclone Bros. and Chopper Bros. Advance) until the heart pops out. Keep attacking the heart unlit it goes back inside her, then kill the head and arms again and attack the heart. Eventually she will die.

Hint: Defeating Chuckola Cola:
The Chuckola Cola Boss shoots a gun of Chuckola Cola at Mario and Luigi. Use this trick to learn who is going to be shot at. He points his gun forward to shoot Mario, and aims downward to shoot at Luigi. You need to break his shield with your hammer. You can then hit him with your hammer to give him more damage.

Hint: Defeating Ghost Cackletta:
When you are fighting Ghost Cackletta, dodge her first attacks no matter what. They are either a ball of energy that falls on you; deflect it four times with your hammer, or she will swing both arms around and you must jump over them. Her eyes will show if her arms will be up or down. She will try to flick you with both hands or will flick an electricity ball at you. You must hit it between the brothers until it goes out. One hit will kill you. You only have 1 HP; take your next turn to use a Max Nut to heal both brothers. Then, attack her arms with attacks that will do more than 60 points of damage. The arms only have 60 HP. The head has about 200 HP; attack her with good attacks. When you defeat the head, her heart will appear. Use your best moves (level 3 Normal Splash Bros. and level 3 Advanced Knockback Bros.) at her heart and avoid anything else until the heart closes. Repeat until she is defeated. You can tell the fight is almost over when she starts shooting energy balls that are color coded on who they will they hit (red for Mario, green for Luigi). If you hit them with your hammer, they will be deflected back.

Hint: Defeating Koopalings:
First, make sure Luigi is faster than Mario. Then, use the complete Thunder Hand Bros. attack. This will decrease their defense. Finally, pelt them with a assault of Bros.attacks.
Information in this section was contributed by Racer12JJH.

When one of the Koopalings splits up into four, use Luigi's Thunder Hand move. It will get rid of all the fakes.

Hint: Defeating Mother Piranha and Piranha Plants:
At the Beanbean airport, there are Piranha Plants on the runway. You first have to defeat them by filling Mario with water and using Luigi's hammer to hit water at the Piranha Plant. Then, put Luigi up front and shock the Piranha Plants with Thunderhand. Every time you defeat a Piranha Plant, the egg on the runway will crack. Once you have defeated them all, the egg will burst and the Mother Piranha will appear. Make Mario use Hammer and Luigi use Thunderhand. Mario should not use Firebrand because the Mother Piranha is red and the fire would heal her. If you defeat the Piranha Plants in front of her, she will probably turn purple. Have Luigi use hammer and Mario use Firebrand. Mother Piranha can naturally heal up to 20 HP at a time -- so do as much damage as you can to her. Note: The Piranha Plants in front of her will get angry every time you attack Mother Piranha. Watch out when they start shooting their fireballs/thunderballs at the same time.

Hint: Defeating Popple and Rookie:
Throughout the battle, Popple has only two attacks. He will steal an item, r do a weak attack. Rookie only throws hammers at the beginning of the battle, which can be blocked by holding A or B depending on the brother it will hit, and releasing that button when Rookie's hammer is directly over you. After hurting Rookie a lot (this is difficult because Popple heals Rookie with your stolen mushrooms), he will talk and start breathing easily dodgeable fire along with throwing hammers. All you need to do to win is kill Rookie and Popple will run away.
Information in this section was contributed by Sahil Bandyopadhyay.

Hint: Defeating Queen Bean:
When the fight begins, start by making Mario jump on her right arm. Her arms are her weak spot. Meanwhile, have Luigi pulverize her with his hammer so that she gets knocked back. Do not let her get too close. After your turn is over, Queen Bean will start sending shockwaves your way. Dodge them and repeat. After her right arm shrinks (usually requires six hits), go for the left arm. Her shockwaves will be weaker, but faster. After her left arm is toasted, her crown will fall off. At this point, she will start shooting lima beans at you. Barrage her with jump attacks, and when her arms get their strength back and her crown is back on her head, repeat the process to defeat her.
Information in this section was contributed by Racer12JJH.

After you deflate Queen Bean's hands, she will start to shoot beans at you. She will wiggle her hands to show who she is going to throw the bean at. Try to jump over them. However, if you accidentally jump on one, it becomes a Bean Monster. Do not kill it. Simply leave it there and dodge its attacks while continuing to hit Queen Bean. When Queen Bean's hand re-inflate, she will use her electric lightning attack. This attack will kill the Bean Monsters.

Queen Bean has 100 HP. Her main attack is hitting the ground with her fists and sending what looks like small bolts of lightning on the ground at you. You can jump over them. It is possible to defeat her with Mario at level 9 and Luigi at level 10. You should be able to do 3 or 4 points of damage to her. Luigi's Brother Attack is the best one to use.
Information in this section was contributed by Badboyduelist.

When your fighting Queen Bean, have one person jump on one of her arms and the other hit her with his hammer. Hitting her with your hammer may only take off 1 HP, but this will prevent her from getting too close to you and hitting you with her hands. Each of her arms has about 25 HP. When they turn small and weak, she will spit beans at you. Do not let her get her army full. Make her arms floppy three or four times and you will defeat her.

Use Splash Bros. Advance for the target destination of her head and hit it without worrying about the damage that you will receive. However, she will bite the dust from that attack. Keep pummeling her with that attack and also hammer her back from punching distance.

Hint: Defeating the Wood Monster Trent:
When you are taking the Princess Peach through the desert, at the end you fight a monster. Before doing so, set Mario's Bros. attack to where Mario does multiple attacks with the hammer. Set it skill to three. You can do this in battle. When Mario is about to use his multiple attacks, rapidly tap A. After about six Bros. attacks, he will die, depending on your level. Make sure Luigi is alive or you cannot do this.

Hint: Defeating Yo Bro:
Yo Bro has two yo-yos. One is green and the other is red. If he swings the red one, he is attacking Mario. If he swings the green one, he is attacking Luigi.

Hint: Defeating Bosses:
At the start of a Boss battle, use Luigi's Thunder Bros. attack to lower the defense of the Boss. To finish off the Boss, use Mario's Splash Bros. and Luigi's Bounce Bros. attacks, and heal when needed. Note: This helps when you are at Bowser's castle and are fighting one of the Koopalings with a time bomb.

Use Luigi's Thunder Bros. attack, then use Mario's Chopper Bros. attack. This works well with Bosses.
Information in this section was contributed by Nintendokd92.

After you learn the Fire Dash and Thunder Walk, you will have a new Bros. attack called Thunder Bros. It is under Luigi's Bros. Command. Use it against Bosses. It will lower their defense by a large amount. Note: This does work during the second time that you face Fawful or on the final Boss.

Hint: Gold Beanie:
Sometimes you can see a Gold Beanie on a rare occasion. If you defeat it and it does not flee, you will get a Spike Badge. You can see them by killing some of those spiny creatures in Chucklehook Woods or underwater.

Harshall's Pants:
After you do the four clothes designs for Harshall to get the BeanStar piece, go back some time later and she will ask you to fill out your own designs on a sheet. You must do all the possible designs that a person can make with the designs and colors given. She will give you a Woo Bean for each design you make until you complete the sheet. When you complete the sheet, she will give you some pants called "Harshall's Pants". These pants raise your HP a lot, but they take a lot of you Defense as well.

Hint: Luigi surfboard:
When you get the Ultra Hammer, go to the beach where the surfer is located and talk to him. He will say that you need something to pound into the slot. Switch Mario to the back and use your hammer over the slot to make Luigi fall in and pop out as a surfboard.

Hint: Mine carts:
When you have the power to make Luigi go underground with the hammer, go to the place with the mine carts. Use the hammer on Luigi and place him under the cart directly next to the "X", then press A. Note: Sometimes Luigi will go to the other side of the cart.

Hint: Stealing items from enemies:
To take items from some enemies, use Swing Bros. (which you get in the Hammerhead Bros new cave after you get the Super Hammer and get the scroll from Thwomp). Keep using it until Mario says "Advance!". Then, switch to Level 1 on Swing Bros. (because it is easier). Just after Luigi hits the enemy that you were aiming for, Mario will light up. Press A so that he will jump up, grab onto Luigi, and fly back to the enemy. When the symbol appears, quickly press A, B, A, B, A, B, A, B, A, B. If the monster has an item you will take it. For example, by using this move on Boo in Bowser's Castle you can get Random Slacks, which are good on defense, however they keep changing your weight from light to heavy.

Hint: Easy dodge:
Sometimes it is hard to dodge a monster's attack because you pressed the wrong button. If this keeps happening, try pressing A + B.

Hint: Increased attack power:
When you attack an enemy in battle, press the command button (A for Mario, B for Luigi) to attack. Then, press it again as soon as you make contact with enemy to slightly increase the power.

Hint: Advance moves:
When you do a Bros. attack for so long on level 3, Mario or Luigi will say "ADVANCE!". This indicates you can add more power to your attack.

Bounce Bros.: When Luigi jumps up and flashes green, press A instead, then press B, A, B. Mario and Luigi will split up and damage two monsters.
Knockback Bros.: When Luigi hits Mario with the hammer, immediately press A and Mario will leap up so he can be fired better. When he hits and returns to Luigi, press B, starting a sequence that can defeat Bowletta by pressing A, B repeatedly. Luigi will keep hitting Mario until he misses.
Cyclone Bros. (Secret Scroll 2): After finishing the slamming hits, Luigi will lean back. Press B then Mario will return to normal and flash red. Press B for a dizzying hit. Note: this may prevent the Stun Status ailment.
Thunder Bros.: Luigi will burrow underground and pop up under the selected enemy.
Splash Bros.: When Luigi gestures to Mario for piggyback, press A instead. Then, quickly press B.
Swing Bros.: After flinging Luigi, he flies back. When Luigi opens his arms, press A to leap at him, then press A + B.

Hint: Hammer locations:

Hint: Hammer techniques:
When you talk to the Chucklehuck Brothers, they will give you two hammer techniques. For Luigi, when he is behind Mario equip the hammer and hit Mario. He will shrink, thus allowing you to go through holes. To return him to normal size again, hit him with the hammer. With Mario, equip the hammer and hit Luigi. He will go underground. Press A and he will pop up.
Information in this section was contributed by the game master.

Hint: Finding items:
Learn how to use the hammer technique. Then, hit Mario with a hammer and make him small. When Mario is small, an exclamation mark will appear over his head when he is over a buried item (and increase if he is directly over it). Without walking, switch places so that Luigi is in front then Mario hit him in the head with the hammer. Pop out and you will have your item.

You can find many items in flower circles or Xs in the ground.

Hint: Weird passport pictures:
When taking your passport pictures on the Koopa Kruiser, the baddie will say "Do not move". Move once, then he will say something to you. Then just when he is about to take the picture, move the D-pad. When done, look at the passports.

Hint: Change music:
To change the music in any area to multiple songs, do the following things. Get the hammer later in the game and get to a pipe used for changing worlds. Turn Mario small and go into the pipe. The music will be the same when you change worlds.

In Little Fungi Town, the embassy in the back (where they find out Mario is sick) is shaped like the castles at the end of every level (except the Bowser ones) in Super Mario Bros. In front next to the entrance is a little flagpole, which is also like the ending of the Super Mario Bros. levels. You can jump on it and slide down, once again like the level endings. Note: This was done as Luigi.

Hint: Zelda cartoon series reference:
The first time you are going down Hoohoo mountain and have just passed by the mine carts, the blacksmiths will appear to teach you how to use the hammers in battle. After the lesson, they say they will go back the mountain and pass through the mine carts again. One of them will say that mine carts are "thrillin' and full of suspenders" and the other will correct him saying it's "full of suspense! Suspense!" and start pulling him. Then the first one will say "Oops! Well, excuuuuuse me!". This was one of Link's most used phrases in the Zelda cartoon series.

Glitch: Luigi still has the hammer:
When you are fighting Poople when he is with Birdo, allow Poople to steal Luigi's hammer when you use Mario's Fire Bros Attack. Notice that Luigi has the hammer but did not retrieve it from Poople.

Glitch: Misspelling:
When you are looking for the four pieces of the Beanstar, go to the desert-like area and talk to the first skeleton in the ship. He will say "Lissen up! This'll shock you!" instead of "Listen up!"
Information in this section was contributed by MelloProto.

Glitch: Frozen game:
When you fight Jojora and one of his girlfriends at the top floor of Joke's End, you can lock up the game. First, block Jojora's attack, sending him away for a few turns. Then, use the Advance Fire Bros. attack on his girlfriend. If you are lucky, you can inflict Burn status on her. If she dies because of the Burn status, Jojora will not run away, and will instead attack you. If you block his attack then, he will leave, but you will not have anything remaining to attack, and also will not win. If you have either Mario brother try to attack, the enemy targeting cursor will disappear. Confirm the attack, and the game will freeze.

Glitch: Same music:
Go to a green pipe and make Mario small. Go into the pipe. You might notice that the music did not change. Then, go out in another pipe. The music will be the same as before you entered the pipe. The only way to get the regular music back is to either go into the pipe and come out without using mini-Mario, or to go to a location where the music changes. For example, if you go in the pipe at Chuckhuck woods and come out at the Beanbean Castle Town one, you could go into the castle and the music will change.

Glitch: Same sound:
Once you learn the Firehand technique to run quickly, hit a fat Koopa and knock him down. After you have talked to him, the Firehand technique running sound will continue. The running sound will stop if you talk to someone, get in a battle, or leave the area.
