The hardest thing to do is get Waluigi but, if you got him action replay there must be a way to get him. My friend *code name* sexigigas has found something that most people don't expect. In the boo garden go to the door and jump on the ledge you need moon jumping to for action replay jump of the empty area where Luigi's rabbit should be after you have collected all 151 stars you should be able to jump to another ledge above that. That is where Waluigi is go to the end of the ledge jump into the wall and you will end up on the other side of that mirror thing to get Wario after that go into the Waluigi painting fight the rabbit king and you get to play as Waluigi if doesn't work or if you cannot find the other ledge I will show you a video and prove it.
Ok, go to the title screen and go to the file screen. Look at the right side of the castle and note the black square. Go on any file, then go exactly where you saw it and BOOM! It's gone! Rumors say that if you hit the invisible box, you get Waluigi. I don't believe this.
Instead of ground pounding the wooden posts that you c in various levels just run around them 3 times and they will give you five coins this method is much faster then the other.
Here are some neat tricks to avoid that annoying fall damage.
1. If you are Yoshi, use the flutter kick by pressing B. If you do this at the right time, you should be well unharmed. Needs practice though.
2. If you are Luigi, try to scuttle by pressing B. If you do this at the right time, you should be well unharmed. Needs practice as flutter kick.
3. If you are Mario, try to slide aginst the wall but without wall jump.
4. Press A. You will either slide, or do a jump kick. Either of these will work. Doesn't work on Yoshi though.
5. Use the ground-pound at the right time.
6. Try to land into water if possible. The water will prevent fall damage.
7. Try to avoid enemies that will throw you away from a high place (such as those strange small bulldozers with footprints on their shovel things in wet-dry world and in battle fort, or the Big Bob-omb).
Hope this helped!
You can only get it when in the hall you see a light u have to look up by pressing x then pressing up.when You transport there you have to fly down to the botten and press it(you need mario)
If you are going to a level what has pretty much water in it (for example, jolly roger bay or dire dire docks) use Luigi. Luigi is very fast swimmer and can swim back to surface without any trouble. But if you're using someone else, and you're low on power (swimming underwater depletes your power meter slowly) try to get some coins or press start and choose to exit course. Coins will increase your power meter quickly, and you can rise to surface.
Hope I helped with this!
I'm not sure if only I've noticed but after you beat any Bowser level with Mario, you can go back and fight him with anybody!
To do this you will need to find the key to the basement after you find it there are two ways to do it you either take the short way(like a cheat and could only be done with Mario or Luigi) or the long way(can be done by anyone in the game).
When I first did it I used the short way then the long way. The short way to do it is to get into the basement then look at the left you will see a slightly slanted slope covered by glass over it. Now to do it this way run under it(the glass) and after you run under it quickly jump and press the A button while holding the Y button and the top of the pad controller and if done correctly you should get to the top and then you ground pound the pillars. And for the long way go the way where the door is when entered go right left forward right and right again and right again if done correctly there is a door enter it go down the hole swim to the other side and ground pound the pillars.
Have fun gaining lives!
1. Go to top of castle roof, collect 1-ups. Triplejump off roof. Repeat until dead. Rinse and repeat for as many lives as you like!
2. Go to Goomboss battle as Mario. Make Goomboss stop by running behind him, then jumpkick him. Get the Super Mushroom and destroy all the goombas. Lots of lives quickly!
Go to big boo's haunt and go to second floor then go to last door on the right,jump on top of the red box,then go in the door and find the luigi painting
Don't just throw the boss of the edge because it doesn't hurt them at all most the time.but if you will get hurt from falling off a cliff.also most bosses usally take 1-3 hits to kill them .
hope this helps

Jump kick goomboss on the back[don't use yoshi] a mushroom will appear then just punch and he is dead
If you stay above water while swimming, you will get full health.
No matter what....
To destroy those annoying tox boxes in shifting sand land just switch or turn into wario then wait for one of the tox boxes to come toward you and right when you get to the part that is hollow just punch or kick in any direction to send the tox box flying into the air and you're pathway will b cleared.
In order for this to work you will need Luigi. Play as him and go to the third story of the castle.
Then enter the first door to the North East. It should have a star without a number.
When you enter it, there should be power flowers on the pedestals. Grab one and walk through the mirror.
Then go to the reflection version of the door that you came in through. If you enter it then you'll be in an all white room with a power star.
Most of the game hasn't changed much from the original. What I mean is most of the Power Star locations are the same. What is new is a couple of secret courses, more playable characters, and 30 more Power Stars. Each main course has one more Power Star than on the Nintendo 64. Okay here is an easy way to get a very difficult Star. In the Hazy Maze Cave go to that big hole where the rolling boulders fall into as Wario and smash each one for those who are impatient or look at the Touch Screen and wait until you see a Star, smash that boulder, if it goes into the hole wait for it to come again. How did I get it? I got it by pure luck because I had no idea where or what to do. Well this should save you a lot of frustration.
To do this mission go to the tiny island. Go to the tree and jump when you're at the top of it. Do a backflip and teleport to the huge island. Go to the farthest right log and ground-pound it. Get the giant mushroom and start knocking all those piranha flowers. They won't do any damage to you if you take the giant mushroom. This is an easier way instead of punching them.
When you are mario and have wings swoop down ,then up you wilget a super high fly.Do this a lot an you will be a fly expert.
Go up to any sign of your choice,Jump on top,do a ground-pound,then get off to read the sign Mario will crouch to read the sign then get back on and do a ground-pound then the sign will be fully in the ground.
You might already know this, but if you go in one world and collect 100 coins, a secret Power Star will appear! Nab the star, and then just complete the level and you will leave with two stars for the price of one! Or if you die, you will still have the 100 coin star, and then go back in for the other one!
Go into the boo garden. Kill the big one with the thing that looks like it has a garbage can in it. Then stand by it, and you will get sucked in. Go on any level, accept "go on a ghost hunt". Go in the castle, and go up the big stairs in the center of the castle. Turn right,jump to the other hall thing. Go in the only door. BEWARE FALLING THROUGH THE FLOOR!!! Go onto the platform with the power flower, float up to the other floor, go into the door, voila... Luigi's painting. Once you've jumped in, set the sound to surround, put it on full volume, and follow the laughter.
To get multiple hats, you need to go to the top floor of the castle, and into the mirror room. Then go to the secret level( Jump through the side wall), the one with the giant snowman.
Then hop into the cannon nearby. Shoot your self up to the tree next to the giant snowman head. Aim a little above the tree. Then walk in front of the giant snowman. You will get your hat blown off.
You should be back by where you started. Now grab the box next to the pile of the blocks of ice. Look at the touch screen map, and locate your hat.
Then walk slowly toward it with the box. A small snow man should pop-up and be wearing your hat. Throw the box at it, and get your hat. Then repeat, and every time you do this, there will be twice as many hats.
Make sure you pick all of your hats up or it will not work. Don't do this too much, or your game will freeze.
Ok so go to bomb land and go in the cannon that has rocks like a patio then make sure the top arrow thats faceing down line up with the bottom of the floating island the FIRE and you shouldslide up the slope and then you should see blue then look down at the map and you should land on the moutain if you aim right
You need EXACTLY all 150 stars in the game to unlock the cannon outside the castle, there is no cheat to get them all or a cheat to get the cannon without obtaining all the stars.
Easy! All you have to do is enter the level when the hour hand of the clock on the portrait hits 12. This is actually very useful, and is very much necessary if you hope to collect all 8 of the Red Coins in this stage! And, furthermore, navigation around the stage will be much easier, without all of the platforms shifting around with you on top!
Go outside the castle with Yoshi(not the boo courtyard). Find the bunny that goes across the bridge. When the time is right, try to grab the bunny and go in the watter(this could take a while). You will here the music when you catch the bunny, but Yoshi won't spit him out. Next, go to the edge of the nearby sand hill and if you reach the slippery edge,(the edge the you slide down) Yoshi will start to spit the bunny out, but the bunny wont come out of Yoshi's mouth. Go on land then Yoshi will automatically start moving. Note: Once this happens you will have to reset the game because you have no control over Yoshi. (in game reset: L+R+Start+Select.)
