There is a really easy way to get this star.
Normally, you're meant to use the cannon to get to it, but that can be dangerous/suicidal. Instead, go in as Luigi, walk along from the start a bit, face away from the mushroom and do a backflip. Move towards the mushroom while in the air and you should reach it no bother.
VERY HELPFUL COINS HINT!
Anyone trying to get the 100-coin-stars should read this.
The task of getting the 100-coin-star in the "Tiny-Huge island" stage, can be quite befuddling, as several of you know. BUT, if you enter the stage as luigi, there is a trick you can do that can make it possible. Enter the stage through the "Big" picture as Luigi. When facing a Giant Goomba, instead of simply jumping on it, Backflip and twirl onto it. This will give you a blue(5) coin instead of a gold(1) coin. The whole stage has 9 of the Giant Goombas and doing this trick will get you 45 coins instead of just 9. The other thing you need to do to get the 100-coin-star, is enter the mountain from the side and get the red coins as well as the "Blue-coin-stomp-switch" coins. I hope this advice will lessen your headache in this level. ~Torgaz~
As Luigi go into the water by the waterfall and swim into the little square hole. If the camera is angled correctly, Luigi will have a red hat and shirt like Mario. This only happened to me once, so it may take a while
Note: Easier when the water is drained.
OK, so this isn't really a cheat, but it's just some dumb thing that happens. Anyway, go to the desert level in the basement with the quicksand. Then, go by where the oasis is. A big vulture will come and take your hat. Then, if you leave, you still won't have your hat. The only way to get it back is to go to the vulture. Also if you do something Toad will give it to you, I think you have to get a game over or something.
inlaws are outlaws
1.To do a baseball slide start running and start to do a long jump but before you press the jump button press the atack button and you'll do a baseball slide
2.To make your player to sleep just wait for a little while and your carecter sleep,Its kinda funny when luigi starts to sleep.

There are no power stars in any of the Bowser Boss levels, so don't waste your time trying to get 100 coins in any of those 3 boards.
Hope this saved you time!
On the final level, Bowser in the Sky, there is, around the third floor, a pole on a moving platform with Shockers (balls covered in electricity) surrounding it.
It is after the moving platform with the heart. If you notice, there are 3 coins on the side.
Run around in a circle and collect all of the coins and a life will appear out of nowhere. There you go! A free life. Its important if you are going to fight Bowser.
Hope this helped!
On the level 'tick tock clock', before you enter the level, look at the minutes hand. It is the long hand and moves faster than usual. If you jump in the clock at the '3', everything in the clock level will be moving slowly. If you jump in at 6, everything will be going at mid-speed. If you jump in the 9, everything will be going fast. That is just to your disadvantage. But the best one of all that I almost beat every level with, is the 12. It stops time but the enemies are still moving.
Hope this helps!
After collecting 15 stars, go to the center of the castle (with the picture of the sun on the floor) with Mario and go into observation mode (standard, X). Look up into the light and you will get teleported to the ? Switch room. Fly to the center pillar and walk over the big red ? Button. Now, all the invisible red ? Blocks can now be hit! Beware: some of them are bombs.
Hope this helped!
When you flip the top of the DS, it goes into sleep mode which then Mario says, 'byebye!'. When you turn it back on, he says, 'It's me, Mario!.
When you are Yoshi and you have an egg (which you get by eating something with B and pressing R), you can throw it at an enemy with A and you wil get way more coins!!
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.
First you have to lower th water outside of the castle. Then you go to the level where you are invisible. From there look down at the platforms, but stay a safe distance away from the black dot. There's like 5-8. Try to go onto the platforms with lives. It should take you a while because it's pretty much about 10-30 minutes. Once you have collected all of the lives just jump off the edge you won't lose any lives. Continue this process about 20 times and then you will have 100 lives.
Outside over the bridge there is a sign post near a flower patch that says some thing about a long jump and triple jump, THEN is says "Oh neather mind it's a secret..."
WELL IT'S GROUND KICK!!!
I spent 20mins trying to figure this move out so listen good!
Slide down a slope, if it don't slide on a slop run and crouck ( R), and the press A!!!
Got inside the room where you go into 'Jolly rodger bay' go up to the painting and turn around you should see two holes in the wall, the nearest toad (mushroom guy) is a secret star and the other is a 1-up!
On the level "big boo's haunt" where you have to be wario and smash the black brick box where you find the switch before you press it go outside and get the Luigi cap and then press the switch. Becase you're Luigi you should be able to get the star easy =)
On the bomb-om level
If you keep ground-pounding the post wich the chain comp is tied to, he will break free and you will be able to get the star from behind the metle bars
Go into the court yard and go into the boo area (forgot it's name).
Unlock the first star. Then as mario go up the stairs and to the right all the way.
Get the red box right inside that room.then hit the red box and you should become balloon mario.
Go all the way up the wall onto a stand. Go in the door and jump into the luigi poster.
Beat king boo and voila!you have unlocked luigi !
Ok, go outside (I have only done this with luigi) and go to the pond and go to the tree on the coast of the pond by where you started and keep diving at the tree and sliding down if you get low enough on the tree you can go down and swim under everything in an endless sea you can also jump in the cannon from here number of stars needed:?
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.
