Hint: The Final Battle:
To win The Final Battle, jump across the turning platforms
with A. Once you reach the other side, you will have to
solve a puzzle. Ground-Pound the three pieces to form a Bowser
Kid. The new zone will be like the first, but with three flames
coming out of the tiny pillars. Make your way across again. You
must now solve a larger puzzle with little pieces. Once you complete
the puzzle, go left to face Bowser. Stomp three buttons. It will
form a triangular beam. Make sure Bowser is lured inside the triangle.
He will get shocked. Do this five times to defeat Bowser.
Hint: Cheep Cheep Sweep mini-game:
Go to the CPU's or another player's cage for the Cheep
Cheep. When at the cage, block them from whatever way they are
coming, and just walk the opposite way they are except directly
in front of them. Just get one or four Cheep Cheep and do this
Hint: Doors Of Doom: Determine Bowser's
In the Extra Room game called Doors Of Doom, there
is a way to tell which door Bowser will come out of. Look at the
nostrils of the statue of Bowser's head mounted in-between the
two doors. One nostril will be bigger than the other one. The
smaller one is the correct path. Note: In each room, the angle
of the camera changes so it is more difficult to tell which is
Hint: Dungeon Duos mini-game:
Go to the switch that you must press X on. When
you send the CPU player over to the other platform, keep pressing
X to keep the platform moving towards you. When the computer
player presses X, it will make the platform move twice
Hint: Final Battle! mini-game:
At the final step, get killed by the lighting strike
three times and you will become invincible.
Hint: Graveyard Train:
To ride the Graveyard Train, visit the Giant Red Boo
(when the invisible path is there). Talk to him and all of the
Red Boos that were there will be gone, except for the candle.
Then, past the item shop is an area for the train. Coffins will
pick you up and you must go to the boneyard (graveyard). You can
also pick anyone up in your path to ride along with you.
Hint: Better chance in ball lottery:
Move the Analog-stick Back for a 99%
chance to get 30 coins in the lottery.
If you have to choose a Scratch Card, always choose the one on
the bottom and second from the right. You can win up to 100 coins.
Hint: Getting mini-games easily:
Go to Party mode and chose any board. Make sure there
is only one human player. Once the game starts and it is the first
person's turn, press Start then press A. Go to "Controllers"
and put yourself down as a CPU player. Then, press B to
resume the game. If done correctly, you should have a game of
all CPU players. Wait until the game is over and your CPU players
should have unlocked some mini-games. Note: Once you make the
game all CPU players, you will not be allowed to become a human
Hint: Story mode:
At the start up screen where the cards are, choose
story mode. Every time you fully complete a board, there will
be a star above it instead of a picture. When you get all of the
stars you can go to the Bowser board. If you have gotten some
presents on one character and want to switch to another character,
you will have to do all the boards again on the character you
switched from. To prevent this from happening, start with one
person, then continue until all the boards are finished.
Hint: Bowser-shaped holes:
Go to the extra room and play Challenge Booksquirm.
When you reach thirty pages, Bowser-shaped holes will appear.
Hint: Volcano of Coins:
In Shy Guy's Jungle Jam, sometimes when you ride the
bird, the volcano along the way will spit out many Coins.
Go to the Present Room. Highlight a completed doll
house and press Up on the house. You will see the constellation
that the "Star" showed you when you defeated Bowser.
Mario and Luigi.
Hint: Easy win in party mode:
Before starting a party mode game, set your handicap
star limit to nine, and thus win the game.
In the Booksquirm game, there is a very easy way to
cheat the system without getting squished. When there are cut-out
shapes on the bottom level, run up to one and center yourself
within it. Keep running forward and the page will come down, "semi-squishing"
your character; but you will not be squished. This will work every
time, if done correctly.
