How to get more health in Flower Fields:

When you unlock some of the gates by giving berries to the flowers then keep the excess berries.

They will come in handy when you are low on flower points or health points.

If you leave the area then go back you can get as many berries as you can carry. Some give 5 health points, 5 flower points or, 3 flower points and 3 health points.

Hope this tip is useful in your future gameplaying.

Infinite HP

Just before the stairs that go to Koopa Village, run around that blue thing that watches you.
You will hear star music and hearts will pop out of it, just keep running around until you get as many hearts as you want.

Just something good to know

OK I will try to remember, um when you are in the desert, you have to break a big block I think. There will be a big mole. If you hit it in the head with a hammer you will get a ball which is suppose to be his bump from the head. It has like 30 hp and 30 fp. In order to get another on you have to leave the scene and go back after a while. It helped me a lot when I was beating the bird.

Easy Huff N. Puff Battle

An easy way to beat Huff N. Puff is to got to the sewers ans find those Ultra boots. When you're in battle with him use Muskular's star power (the blue star with the salor hat) to weaken Huff N. Puff.

Easy way to beat Lava Piranha

Uses the badge "Ice Power" and use Sushi's Last attack. (Only for people that don't know)

Purple Jump No Namer Badge???

Okay I don't know where this one came from but it appears to be another "No Namer." I investigated on what it did and it appears to do the same thing as Mega Jump and Power Jump(Jumps on a foe with more attack power). Its attack power is more than Power Jump but less than Mega Jump. But I just call it "Super Jump."

To get a ultrashroom and 4 mushrooms, beat the ice king, then go to the town with penguins..

Have three healing items. go to the toad house and take a nap. when you wake up you should see them. (I promise this works.)

It works better when you have a ultrashroom and two supershrooms.

You can get an ultrashroom after you pass the monster that tries to lick you.

A way you can defeat the Crystal king

If you want to defeat the Crystal King to get the Seventh Star spirit,you are going to need to get a lot of fire flowers(like 5) and use them.When you run out of fire flowers,use you Parrykarry's shell shot(or his other attacks) and use it on the crystal king .
When you run out of FP(flower power),he should be down to his 20-50lives(Also bring some super shrooms and if you are close to dieing use it because so you can stay alive for the battle.
When you are colse to defeating the crystal king use a finishing blow (like using a hammer,,jump or mabye your partner can do the finishing blow for you).You decide who is going to do the finishing blow.
When you defeat him,you get the seventh star spirit.You have to be a high level(like 13-20)to defeat him.Your ..

Peach's guarded room access key

When you go in Peach's castle in the beginning of the game there is a cheat on the first floor. There is a toad guarding the door to Peach's room. Keep on talking to that toad until he gets out of the way. When you go in the door you are in Peach's guarded room

How to beat Crystal King easy

1. Buy as many Shooting Stars as you can
2. Have the Triple Dip badge
3. Also have the Lucky Day badge
4. Have anyone fully upgraded who could do some damage
(Kooper, Bombette, Parakarry or Watt will do in my opinion)
5. Have some other great badges equipped
6. If you followed my steps, the Crystal King should be easy

Shrink Smash???

Here is another code for a weird badge. This "Shrink Smash" badge is really weird. It never showed up in the game and the description says it only uses 1 FP. But in battle it uses 2 FP. Well anyway..Here is the code!

Best ways to get star points

#1:Go to lavalava island and fight the fuzzy,make sure you have the zaptap badge(if not,then go to the badge trader who trades badges for star peices) at merlee's house,then,the fuzzies can't hurt you and they take 1 damage!(just choose do nothing every round,and they will keep multiplying,for ultimate star points!) but if you are to high level to get experience from them,then try these other ones!
#2:At the flower fields,go down the bottom right path,then go until you see a flower creature that is shining,now fight him(he will try and run away) he is tough,does 20 damage and takes about 15 damage to kill,but you get 40 star points for killing him!(once you kill him,go 2 screens back then go back,if he isnt there again,try again until he is back)
#3:Once you beat la..

Coin trees

When you are at Yoshi's village in world 5 some trees in the jungle hold coins

Unlimeted money

Go to lavalava island equip the pay off badge then harass the hurt plant attack the 2nd hurt plant then do nothing until you are in danger merlees magic= mor cash sleep at the toad house then repeat

Unlimited Coins

It would be wise to have the Toad Town Sewer Transport pipes for this cheat well what you need to do is have no items at all then go to the Goomba Village then go to the gate near it you will see a tree hit it then a Goomnut will fall out get the Goomnut then walk through the gate and back out into the Goomba Village again and hit the tree again and another Goomnut will fall out repeat this process until your items are full once your items are full return to Toad Town go to TayceT's kitchen and cook all of the Goomnut's they will become Nutty Cake now take them to the item shop and sell them for 6 coins Repeat this process until you are fully content.

Most effective attacks for the Crystal King:

Level up Kooper to Ultra Rank. His Flame Shell will be effective. Use attacks like Power Shell, Power Bomb, Tidal Wave, Quake Hammer, Flame Shell, Dizzy Shell, etc. Any attack that will strike multiple enemies at once work great for when the Crystal King splits up or when Crystal Bits are active.

How to get lots of Whacka's Bumps:

First, go to Mt.Rugged and get Whacka's Bump. Now go down the mountain, save and turn of Nintendo 64 or Wii. Turn the game back on and go back to the Whacka area. The Whacka will be there! (You can only do this several times before the Whacka dies.
