The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D – Walkthrough Guide

Super Mario Galaxy 2 Secrets

Unlockable: Luigi
Get “The Flotacious Blimp Fruit” Star in the Tall Trunk Galaxy to unlock Luigi for play on certain levels. You can talk to Luigi at the start of a level to control him. Beat the level and you’ll unlock a time trial “ghost.”

Beat the game and you’ll be able to walk into a door on Starship Mario (on Mario’s forehead, just below the main area) and transform into Luigi to play any level.

Unlockable: Staff Ghosts
Beat a level using Luigi to unlock a “ghost” recorded by the game’s developers. You can try and beat this ghost as it makes its way through the level at mach speed!

Unlockable: Green Stars
Beat the game after you get the 120 gold stars and you’ll unlock 120 more green stars to collect!

World S
Successfully complete World 6 to unlock World S.

Grandmaster Galaxy
Collect all 120 gold stars and 120 green stars to unlock the Grandmaster Galaxy in World S. This is a 2D level with a Comet Medal and one star to collect.

Hint: 1-Up Mushrooms on Spaceship Mario
You can collect several 1-Up Mushrooms on Spaceship Mario. As you collect stars, the following 1-Up options will appear on Spaceship Mario.

* Grab Yoshi off of the “nose” and use the star pegs to swing up to a hidden island with 10 fruit. Eat them all for a 1-Up.
* Grab a Cloud Flower and make platforms to reach a 1-Up on a cloud high above.
* Spin into the random item block for a chance at a 1-Up.
* Near Mario’s left ear (your right) is a warp pipe that takes you to a 1-Up minigame. Feed the Luma to spin a number of random item blocks for a chance to win 1-Ups.

Hint: Super Ground Pound
Jump, shake the Wii-Remote to spin and QUICKLY press Z to perform a super ground pound. This move will allow you to hone-in on enemies below you; a heat-seeking butt-stomp, if you will.

Comet Stars
When do they start to appear? It’s still slightly unclear… There are reports that after you get 10 Comet Stars, they then begin to appear. Some say after World 2 (They may be because most people get 10 or more Comet Starts by this point).

Missing the Cosmic Coin in Sky Station Galaxy?
A lot of people seem to have missed this coin… To fin the Cosmic Coin in the Sky Station Galaxy go on the cylinder with the white train looking platforms on the tracks, go to the one of the far end, ride it until you see it. Its in mission 1, not 2.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 – Cheats – Infinite Lives

Go to the “Supermassive Galaxy”. There are 3 Koopa Troopas in a cylindrical area. Then run to the right and a make a long jump to land over the giant Koopas shell, and gradually keep right (you can release A button). You´ll get unlimited extra lives for free!

Another way to get infinite lives in the “Huge Trouble With Big Wigglers” level in Supermassive Galaxy is by going to the 1UP Mushroom floating above the gap between the “Tip Network TV” block and the next block. Long Jump over this gap to collect the 1UP, and then Long Jump back and speak to the TV. The TV will show you how to perform the Long Jump through a short “Tip Network” video. Once the video is finished, the 1UP mushroom will appear again. Collect the 1UP, and talk to the TV, it the 1UP will appear again. Repeat this as many times as desired.

Secret World
Successfully complete the game to unlock World 7, Secret World.

Control Luigi
Collect “The Flotacious Blimp Fruit” star in the Tall Trunk Galaxy to be able to talk to Luigi at the beginning of certain levels and control him.

Yoshi’s infinite flutter jump

Hold A to jump, and before finishing the fluttering (while still holding A), press Z to crouch mid-air. Quickly release A, then press A again, and repeat. This may require some practice. This move will allow you to slowly go anywhere.

Deposit the indicated number of Star Bits to change the appearance of Toad:

1,000 Star Bits: Toad wears glasses.
2,000 Star Bits: Toad has a spear and shield.
4,000 Star Bits: Toad has a pickaxe.

Co-op mode sound effects
Press Up, Down, Left, or Right on controller two to make sound effects on player one’s Wii-mote. Press Minus, Plus, 1, and 2 on controller one to make sound effects on player two’s Wii-mote.

    This should probably be made hidden unless someone clicks on the link. There are major spoilers in the post.

      the title says secrets cheats and more, im sure to most fully functional humans, that would indicate spoilers…

        NO, what is confusing is this site's posting of worlds layout explanation, look up for these
        “World S–Successfully complete World 6 to unlock World S.” then like half way down the page, they post
        “Secret World–Successfully complete the game to unlock World 7, Secret World.
        So We've been looking for an 8th world forever, becuase I only looked over this page for a quick reference cheat that had me bugging out with my 5 year old trying to find out if not talking to the comic chick at the end of the PERFECT RUN prankster comet caused “THE SECRET WORLD” that didn't exist not to show up. Thanks alot

    I'm on world 3 i would be higher if we didn'd have to buy it at wallmart!I though there was only 3 worlds?

    • May 24, 2010 at 12:53 pm

      There are 6 worlds and 1 hidden.

    • Roman
      June 25, 2010 at 6:30 am

      Don't be negative Benjamin Bussell there is six worlds and one special world also known as world s so total there are seven and you need to collect all 120 gold stars & 120 green stars then you will have 240 stars in all and finally you have to beat this galaxy called the grandmaster galaxy once you beat that you will have 241 stars but remember to collect the comet medals in order to get the other gold stars (prank star-comets) in order to beat the rest of the game

    what the hell is a green star?!?

  • TheLegendaryOne
    July 21, 2010 at 1:08 am

    Gingerprince2001, a Green Star is a secret star that only appears once you get 120 Stars and beaten the game again. Once done, Green Comets (which hold Green Stars.) will appear on EVERY galaxy. Once you got 120 Green Stars, a secret galaxy called Grandmaster Galaxy will appear… (LOL! 2001 WAS WHEN I WAS BORN!)

    When you collect all 120 gold stars, you must beat Bowser (again), and then wait through the end credits. An animation will appear — which I will keep to myself so I won’t spoil it for you or the others — after the credits are over, and you should then be able to restart the game and play to collect the green stars. I hope this helps. Good luck!

    In order to get to the secret galaxy in World S, you must collect all 120 of the gold stars, and then collect all 120 of the green stars. It’s quite a challenge, but it’s worth the effort. Good luck!

      how do you get the first green stars? i’m on the first level, but i’m not able to use yoshi!

  • Ysw0216
    October 2, 2010 at 7:22 pm

    I heard, on the ship a green star can take you to the final galaxy, (Which is a congrats for beating game NOT HARD AT ALL) how do i get to it? is it for galaxy 1 only? Plzz answer!

    • Cainio101
      July 3, 2011 at 8:23 pm

      It’s only on Galaxy 1. To get there go to the green sling star by the garage and go to the middle of that planet and there should be a green luma talk to him then he turns into a sling star that takes you to the final galaxy

    You need to go back to world 6 and beat bowser again

  • Ellis Rowland
    December 31, 2010 at 1:12 am

    Heres one: when using the cloud flower, run, shake the controller so that you sprout a cloud WHILE ON THE GROUND then immediately hold z and jump while still running in a direction. if done correctly you will do a longjump that shoots you about three times as far. its kind of pointless, as you could just regular longjump and still use only 1 cloud, but its still cool.
    Now that i think of it i havent tried without a cloud flour, so it may be a universal super longjump, but im not sure

  • Mincey322

    what does it mean when u beat a level u get the gold star but there is a question mark on the star when i go back in i cant figure out what the question mark is for

    • January 19, 2011 at 6:13 pm

      It might mean one of two things: Either that is another star that you can get after you got the first…OR that’s the type of star you get if you use the Super Guide to beat a stage.

    • Cainio101
      July 3, 2011 at 8:19 pm

      You need to defeat Bowser in world 6 and then after the credits there should be a message or something that tells you that you have unlocked green stars. Hope this helps!

    world 4 links seem to be screwed up. theres no walkthrough for chompworks, and the two following levels are kinked backwards.

    You missed a 1-Up mushroom on the Mario ship. At the other ear is one of those circle teleporter things, it should take you to the ship the toads use, and on it there is another 1-Up.

    Also, the Banktoad can change his appearance more than that. He can get scuba gear and a few other things too.

    This is what i think is a glitch, on the flipsville galaxy if you play co-op mode stop a chomp right on top of a flippy thing flip it and the star and chomp will be sent flying.
