Save Yourself Glitch
When you know you are definately going to die (wherever you are) you can save yourself by pressing the + button on the remote and going back to the World Map or Starship Mario. This does not work when you are in the process of dying and you have more of a chance of this glitch working if you have 0 remaining lives. Unless you have passed a nearby Bowser Flag it is advised to only do this under extreme circumstances. 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.
