HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS

UNLOCKING HINTS

COMPLETION BONUSES
Successfully complete and save the game. You can pay 10 coins to use a boat near the clock tower where Yoshi is found to return to the Airport level at the start of the game. Additionally, you can get a Hawaiian shirt in addition to the sunglasses that the man wearing sunglasses gives Mario normally during the game.
Alternate ending screen: If you complete the game with 119 Shine Sprites or less you will get an ending screen in which el Piantissimo inspects the paintbrush. However, if you finish it with all 120 Shine Sprites, the ending screen will show all the characters in the game.
Alternate ending screen (2): There are 240 Blue Coins and 120 Shine Sprites. You need 50 Shine Sprites and have level 7 completed on all seven stages to get to level 8. You only need 117 Shine Sprites to complete the game to get one ending. Get the last three Shine Sprites to see a different ending. Get the shirt and glasses for a different appearing ending.

EASY LIVES

One:
Whenever you complete a level, go to the water directly next to where the boats go in and out. Dive all the way to the bottom and you will see a 1-Up Mushroom. Whenever you return from a level or start from the beginning, it will be there.
Two: When you do a mini-game (when Fake Mario steals FLUDD) and you die, there is always a life, If you get one each time you die you will not get a game over.
Three: Anybody that gives you a blue coin the first time you wash them off, or get them fruit, will also give you a 1-Up if you wash them off or get them fruit again.
Four: There is a manhole near the fruit stands near the lighthouse. Hop in it and go towards the lighthouse. As soon as you have a choice to go towards the water, do so. Follow the path to a 1-Up Mushroom.
Five: Go to the island where the man is stranded and spray the fire. A 1-Up Mushroom will appear.

COINS

One:
Get coins in the harbor (with Bloopers) by going onto the sky walks. There are tons of coins up there.
Two During the first level, when you approach a red circle on the beach, stomp there to find the question mark coins.
Three Find a patch of flowers and spray them all quickly. Four or five Coins will appear from the middle of the patch.
Four If you wash off a person with sludge, they may give you a Blue Coin.
Five Go to the island with the stranded man on it with Yoshi. Spray the yellow thing on the pipe to make it disappear . You will play a lily pad game in which you have to get 8 Coins.
Six Go on top of trees and you might find some extra Coins.
Seven Eat the green birds with Yoshi to get regular Coins. Eating blue birds will give you Blue Coins.
Eight You can get Blue Coins for helping the people in Delfino Plaza get fruit and putting them into a basket.
Nine Spray a symbol (X) with water until it goes away. A blue coin will appear from another symbol (and vice versa).
Ten If you wander around in the manhole (usually in underwater tunnels) you will find yellow and blue coins.
Eleven If you see a blue butterfly, eat it with Yoshi and a Blue Coin will appear. This also works with blue birds, but spray them with your water cannon three times.
Twelve Once you have the rocket-pack, spray these things in the following order to get three Blue Coins: first bell, big Shine Sprite, second bell.
Thirteen After you defeat Mech Bowser, do not get the Shine Sprite. Instead, go to the place in the act where there are little round guys. Kick them all off the big one, then jump on the big one for a Blue Coin.
Fourteen On the ground at the Theme Park level are hidden blue Shine Sprite symbols. They are on the ground outside of the theme park on the beach. You will receive a Blue Coin from them.
Fifteen On the Theme Park level on the Yoshi Merry-Go-Round episode, spray the flying things, then jump on them. Each time you do so, you get five Coins. After you kill all of them, get Yoshi (the fruit is hidden in the ground; spray the ground to get it). Eat the yellow and green butterflies to get more Coins. Spray the ground to get the rest of the Coins that are hidden there.
Sixteen To get all Red Coins on the sand bird, get all the ones on the bird then there will be one on a platform at the end of the level.
Seventeen Do the Watermelon Festival mission and dive into the watermelon. A Coin will appear. You only get about ten Coins from a watermelon.
Eighteen Find a sketch of Fake Mario and spray it with water to get Coins. Note: Only some sketches will give Coins.

FINDING SHINE SPRITES
One:
Whenever you see a yellow bird flying around, shoot it with water and it will turn into a Shine Sprite. One can be found in Isle Delfino, around the island where the man is stranded. A second can be found in Noki Bay; at the upper left part of the bay is a square in the ground (where Mario appears) and a palm tree. The yellow bird will be sitting on the palm tree, or flying around it.
Two Go into the side of the boat house to buy Shine Sprites with Blue Coins. Each Shine Sprite costs ten Blue Coins. You can only buy up to 24 Shine Sprites because there are only 240 Blue Coins in the game.
Three Go to the Star Gate. To the right will be a woman wanting your help. Jump on the edge of the basket and double-jump. Water jet towards the mountain. You will end up on the mountain. Go on the right side (facing the Star Gate)and Wall Kick the left side of the gate until you get to a ledge. Clean off the star completely. A Shine Sprite will appear high on top of the gate.
Four
Go out to the island where the man is stranded. You will see a gold bird flying around. Shoot it with your water cannon and a Shine Sprite will appear.
Five Get the turbo power-up. Turbo through the door where you first met the police. You will enter to a special area made especially for the turbo.

DEFEATING HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS
King Boo:
Spray King Boo to get him to do the slots. When it lands on the fruits, throw a red pepper into his mouth, then throw any fruit at him. Do this three times to win. Note: Land on coins for coins and ? for enemies.
Mecha-Bowser: Get a rocket and when you get close to him, shoot it at his head. Squirt the Bullet Bills with water, and also squirt the flames to avoid getting hit. Do this three times to win.
Mantas: Hide in the hut where the "girl" is located during the Manta fight in Sirena Beach Episode 1. If you talk to her before the fight, she tells you that it was safe there during the first attack. When they pass over, they go on the rooftop over Mario and you will not get hurt. Run out, squirt them, then run back inside.
Bowser: Bowser will shoot flames at you. Use the Rocket Nozzle to jump over them. Also spray the Bullet Bills that Baby Bowser shoots out. Go to each of the five fire symbols and shoot the Rocket Nozzle directly above them. Then, at your highest point, do a Ground Pound. Watch out though; the ledge falls off when you pound it. If you fall, use the Rocket Nozzle to try and get back up. Do this on all five of the symbols.
The gopher: To defeat the gopher in the cannon at Galeto Beach, spray the bombs he throws (they will turn blue), then throw them at him.
Giant eel: Go into the bottle in Noki Bay that the old man has. Spray all of the eel's teeth when his mouth opens.
Gooper Blooper: When he punches you with his arm, jump on it and it will flatten. Then, press B and pull his arm off. Do this for each arm. When the arms are gone, pull off the nose. Do this process twice to win.
Piranha Pete: In the second battle with him, get to a high place and spray him with water. He will fall to the ground. Then, go face to face with him and he will try to spit sludge. Before he does, spray water into his mouth and repeat the process as done during the first battle. Do this three times.
Piranha Plants: You can defeat all Piranha Plants by squirting them when they have their mouth open.
Wiggler: Water one of the Dune Buds and it will make a hill. Wiggler will run into it and turn over. After that, do a Ground Pound onto his stomach. Do this three times. Note: To fight Wiggler, you first have to do the mission with the mirrors to get him off the tower.

Sunglasses and shirt Pianta location

The following is where the Pianta man that gives you the sunglasses is located in each level.
Delfino Plaza: Fruits Street.
Bianco Hilles: Near the start point.
Ricco Harbor: Near the start point.
Gelato Beach: Beach house.
Pinna Park: Near the start point.
Sirena Beach and Noki Bay: Not found in this level.
Pianta Village: In the village during the daytime only.

GENERAL HITS AND PLAYING TIPS
Return to the Airport:
Once you've beaten the game (and saved your game), you will be able to go back to the Airport from the very beginning. It'll cost you, though. For the price of 10 coins, a boat close to the clocktower where you find Yoshi will take you to the Airport level -- which is filled with coins and fun stuff to do. Give it a try.
Sunglasses and Hawaiian Shirt: Want to see Mario in a different outfit than his trademark blue overalls and red shirt? How about putting on some shades and slipping into a shirt that would make even Tom Selleck jealous? The shades are easy to get. Look for a man with black sunglasses in the hub world (he's at the beach, close to the fruit stands) or in most of the other levels and talk to him. When certain conditions are met, he'll give you a pair of sunglasses to wear, which will darken your screen appropriately. Note, the sunglasses will disappear the moment you step into another level or restart the game.
The same guy will also give you a Hawaiian shirt -- but you've got to do some work first: finish the game. If you've saved your game after you beat the last big boss, you'll be able to get your shirt anytime you talk to this guy.
Higher jumps with Yoshi: Do Mario's spinning technique when on Yoshi to jump higher. He can also spit juice in this form.
Triple jump with Yoshi: If you run and jump three times with Yoshi, you can do a triple jump similar to Mario's, but without the extra animation.
Yoshi's Spritzer Squirt: Press R, then press A.
Yoshi sprinkler: Rotate the Analog-stick then press A, then R.
Yoshi goes away: If you are riding Yoshi and fall in the water, he will go back to his egg. He will do the same thing if his food scale goes all the way down. Also, if you get Yoshi out of his egg and do not ride him much, he will return to his egg.
Keep Yoshi from disappearing: Yoshi will disappear if you leave him out for for awhile. This is because his juice meter decreases even if you are not on him. To stop him from disappearing (in order to use him later), leave Yoshi next to regenerating fruit on the ground. He will automatically eat the fruit there and stay alive for as long as you are in the level.
Extra stars on secret levels: After you complete a secret level, go back to that episode and replay the secret level. This time there will be a red hump on the ground. Ground Pound it and get the red coins. There will be a time limit, but you have FLUDD to help you.
Easy cleaning: Instead of taking a bath each time Mario gets dirty, do one or two spin jumps.
Jump onto buildings: Use a Ground Pound on a manhole cover then immediately jump up. This will send you high into the air. Use a Hover Nozzle to get on the building. Note: Some items, such as Shine Sprites and Blue Coins, can be found on roofs.
Jump higher: Run in one direction, then turn in the other direction quickly enough so that Mario stirs some dirt up. Then, jump immediately in the air. Mario will jump higher and do some flips.
Avoid dying: Pause game play when you are about to die and select "Exit Area". You will be teleported in front of the level you were at and not lose a life. Note: This does not work if you are falling.
Faster movement: To make Mario get around a little faster, use the single spray nozzle and shoot a small amount of water in front of him. Run and press B to do a belly slide. He will slide through the water and keep going at a high speed. This will continue as long as you do not hit anything.
Run up steeper slopes faster: Dive (press B) at the slope while running at it. As soon as you hit the slope, jump and continue pressing Control-stick Up. This should cause Mario to run very fast. If you hit a wall or another object in this state, he will bounce off it.
Swim faster: Not only can you hold R with the Hover Nozzle while pressing A to swim fast; if you hold C-stick Up as well, you can swim very fast. The C-stick trick also works when Mario is wearing his "scuba gear", which is great for the Red Coin fish stage.
Getting to the Island Resort: You need Yoshi to do this. Go to the rooftops and find the pineapple. Have Yoshi eat it and you can go to the Island Resort. Make sure you talk to the person that is standing in front of the giant wad of goop. Do not try to clean all the goop first -- just talk to the man. A giant stingray will appear . You have to look at FLOOD and he will tell you how to defeat it.
Raining: To make it seem as if it is raining, have the sprayer equipped and do a triple jump. Then, hold R after you land. Drops will be falling from the sky.
Sleeping Mario: Remain idle during game play and Mario will fall asleep.
Mario drinking water: Go anywhere in a corner with Mario and spray water. Mario will appear to be drinking it.
Mario washes face: Go into any corner and enter Mario Cam. Spray water with the Squirt Nozzle and look down. It will appear as if Mario is washing his face. Note: Do not change to the Hover Nozzle while doing this, as it will exit Mario Cam.
Toad trampoline: After completing the first level and getting the first Shine Sprite, exit the statue area. Princess Peach's toads will be in the area. You can jump on top of them. If you jump on top of the normal colored toad correctly, Mario will continue to jump up and down on it.
Mario game clips: During the intermission sequence where FLUDD (the water backpack) identifies Mario, you can view short clips of past Mario games, including Super Mario 64, in the lower left corner.
Select files with moves: When you are selecting a file you can do a Spin Move and the Side Jump to get onto the blocks.
Birds: There are birds in almost every level in the game. Spray a green bird for a Yellow Coin, a blue bird for a Blue Coin, and a yellow bird for a Shine Sprite.
Spinning jump: After jumping, you can do a spin by rotating the Analog-stick once in a circle.
Super Turbo Spin jump: Strap on the Turbo nozzle then go to a body of water. Get up to full speed, spin the Analog-stick, and jump as you would in a normal spin jump. This is a lot higher and covers more land with water. This can also be used on land -- it is more difficult to avoid obstacles.
Sprinkler Water Spray: To execute the Sprinkler Water Spray easily, do a Spin Jump and hold R.
Cover more area with your FLUDD: Jump three times to do a forward somersault. As you roll, shoot your Nozzle Cannon and spray a long distance in front, behind, and below you.
Different nozzles: There are four different nozzles for FLUDD; the squirt nozzle, hover nozzle (like a jetpack, but shorter time in the air), turbo nozzle (go very fast and jump high; unlocked with 25 Shines and after level 4-4), and rocket nozzle (go up like a rocket; unlocked with Yoshi's egg, the turbo nozzle, and 30 Shines). With the rocket nozzle, when jumping at the correct time and are high enough, when Mario falls, he will scream as if falling off a cliff.
Avoid losing health when falling: When falling from high places, press L to do a Ground Pound. This will make you fall very fast and not lose health.
