|Yoshi's Infinite Flutter Jump||96%|
|How to: This tricky move, when perfected, can allow you to reach untold heights and explore off-limits areas. Jump and hold A to "flutter." As Yoshi flutters, TAP Z while still holding A and then release A quickly. Press A again to flutter jump again in MID AIR. The goal is to get Mario to duck, NOT dismount, then quickly flutter again. Try to catch Yoshi at the height of each flutter to perform this maneuver.|
|Duck the Boomerangs||95%|
|How to: When you are facing the Boomerang Bros. You can crouch (press Z on the nunchuk) to avoid the boomerangs. Walk over to the Bros. while crouching and spin to kill them.|
|Grandmaster Galaxy Comet, "The Perfect Run"||94%|
|Description: Near the level list signpost on the main platform of Starship Mario is a Toad Banker who will store your star bits so other save profiles can use them. If you deposit 9999 star bits into the Toad Bank and you will unlock the Grandmaster Galaxy (Daredevil) Comet, "The Perfect Run". You will NOT be notified or shown the Comet arriving at the galaxy. Just go there and play it!|
|How to: Crouch by holding down the Z button on the nunchuk and shake the Wii Remote to spin to do a Spin Kick. You can crouch to avoid Boomerang Bros. and crouch-walk up to them to kick them. Jump again to perform a 2nd spin immediately with little pause between the two.|
|Save Your 1-Ups||93%|
|How to: You usually start the game with 5 lives, even if you save the game. You can use the "Mysterious Letter" to save all of your 1-Ups between gaming sessions ** It is slower than just racking up a bunch of lives using the turtle method each time you begin a game, but here it is anyway: If you start a different save file (you can simply copy your file over), it will automatically pass on all of the lives you had in the other file through Mailtoad. Save and quit, then return to the file you want to play and the lives are passed back again. *** If you go into the same save file twice in a row you will get the 5-Up Princess Peach letter instead.|
|How to: This fantastic cheat will get you 99 lives easily -- you can always return for more! Go to the Supermassive Galaxy in World 4 and choose the 1st Star challenge. Play through the level until you get to the hockey puck-shaped planet with 3 supermassive Koopa turtles patrolling it. DO NOT grab the Spin Drill -- you will have to get hit to lose it if you do! Run up behind a Koopa and long-jump (press Z while running and then press JUMP) onto its back. You need to long-jump from about a turtle-shell-length behind it to catch the "sweet spot." Continue to hold the analog stick to the RIGHT and hold JUMP to continually bounce off the Koopa's shell. If you fall off or hit the head, try again. If you hold these buttons you should be able to maintain momentum while constantly bouncing on the shell. After a few bounces you will rack up 1-Ups for each hit.|
|Super Secret Dive||92%|
|Description: Mario's move list is seemingly endless -- even expert players may not be aware of this one. To perform the awesome flipping high dive, you need to find a place high above deep water. Try Starshine Beach -- run up the small sandy incline at the start of the level and look for a wooden plank hanging off of one side. Walk to the edge and Mario should look down at the water. Turn around while standing in this spot and perform a back flip by holding Z on the nunchuk and pressing JUMP. Mario will then perform this obscure move.|
|Description: Beat The Perfect Run (the Comet for The Grandmaster Galaxy) to unlock a death count for your game on your save profile. This number appears in the upper right above your Star count. It's probably pretty high.|
|How to: When you are close to a Hammer Bro., do a long jump & spin. Mario will kick him down, then finish him of with another kick. Try it!|

|Extra 1-Up Mushrooms||77%|
|To do this you have to roll the dice on your spaceship then go through the warp teleporter to get the 1-Up Mushroom on the Toad brigade's spaceship, then go back through the warp teleporter and go to the place where you choose which galaxy you want to play on. Trick them and go to one of the half way bits and it will come up with Go back to Marioship, press on yes and everything will come back including the 1-Up Mushroom and the dice. Roll the die, if it lands on 1-Up Mushroom you have to chase the Mushroom around the Marioship. Once you caught it you will get another life (the signal for this is a picture of Mario). Then go through the warp teleporter and get the 1-Up Mushroom on top of the Toad Brigade's Ship. After that go back through the warp teleporter and you will be back on the Mario Ship. Repeat this process until you think you have enough lives. (You can only go onto the Toad Brigade's Ship if you met them in one of the levels in a galaxy in World 1.|

|General Playing Tip||76%|
|If you know you are DEFINITELY going to die right there (wherever you are) on the spot, save yourself by doing this: Hit the + button on the remote and go back to the World Map or Starship Mario. You cannot hit + while you're in the process of dying (ex. falling), unless you time it pristine perfect. It helps when you only have 0 remaining lives (I advise doing this only under extreme circumstances, unless you have passed a nearby Bowser Flag). One of the best times to save yourself is when your life circle is blinking rapidly with a "1" and you are on a VERY hard-to-beat level.|
|How to Make Green Stars and Green Ghosts Appear||74%|
|To make all the Green Stars appear you have to get every power star (including comet power stars) and Comet Medals in the game. This includes the Secret World also known as World S. My friend told me this one day when I went to his aunties house in Morley near Morley High School. He said you must get every Comet and every Star in the game to make the Green Stars appear. He finished 6 worlds in three or four days. To make a green ghost appear you have to complete that level with Luigi. Luigi does not appear on every level so don't be fooled by that. When you complete a level as Luigi you make a time trial with you playing as Luigi in that level and it shows everything that you do on the level. This only appears on the level when you play it again.|

If you come back out of it, you will burn yourself. You've created a secret trap for yourself! (Be sure to use up all of your clouds to make this work.)|
|Feeding Luma Tip||67%|
|If you need to feed a Luma, and you are low on Star Bits, go to World 1 and hit Yoshi Star Galaxy. Hit the first Star challenge (Saddle Up With Yoshi), and eat EVERY ENEMY AND BERRY AND SMASH ALL CRYSTALS. You should get about 200-300 Star Bits by the time you're done. Do this as many times as desired.|
|Tree Trunk Purple Coin Slide Tip||67%|
|I advise having a friend helping you with this tricky comet! Go to the Tree Trunk Galaxy (if the comet is still undone), and hit the Purple Coin one. Your "buddy" (aka player 2) can grab coins while YOU are grabbing coins. Player 2 can only do it one coin at a time, but it helps in the long run.

To find her, go to any level without a comet or a boss battle (any type, not just Bowser), and die many times. After a while, a Cosmic figure will appear. It's Rosalina. She asks you whether you want her help or not, and she will lead you to a Bronze Star (there is really no difference between a Bronze or Power Star). She controls you, so sit back and relax. She stops controlling you when you're at the Bronze Star, so get it yourself. Just like when you retrieve a Power Star, it adds another star to the counter. But if you go back and get the actual Power Star instead of the Bronze, it DOESN'T add another.|
