Hint: Fast ending

For a faster ending, get the princess in World 4-1. Go up the vine, but go left, run, and fly to a secret door. Go through the door and use the bombs to blow up the wall. Then, jump over the top of the screen and run left.

Hint: Alternative ending

To see an alternative ending, you must play the game using each character equally. To avoid confusion, use Mario, then Luigi, then Toad, then Princess. Repeat until you complete the game. You must not warp past any sections and play every level in its entirety. The following is a list of bosses and who fights them to end the game balanced:

  1. Toad vs. Mouser
  2. Luigi vs. Triclyde
  3. Mario vs. Mouser
  4. Princess vs. Fryguy
  5. Toad vs. Clawglip
  6. Luigi vs. Triclyde
  7. Princess vs. Wart

If you are successful, the game will state that you used each character five times, and under the word "Contributor," it will show the names of all four characters.

Hint: Finding Fry Guy

To find Fry Guy, use the Princess in World 4-3. A castle will appear after crossing the lake. Do not enter the castle. Instead, fly further across the lake to find another part of the castle. Go through the second door to fight Fry Guy.

Hint: Defeating Wart

To defeat Wart, instead of tossing vegetables into his mouth, simply wait until he stops spitting bubbles and jump on back of him. While here, you can throw a vegetable at his back at any time and it will count as if it went into his mouth.

Hint: Super jump

With any character, hold Down for two seconds, then press A to perform a super jump. Note: If you get hurt by an enemy, the flashing will disappear.

Hint: Riding on vegetables

To ride on vegetables, run very fast and throw a vegetable, then jump on it to ride it.

Hint: Reuse vegetables

To reuse your own vegetables, pick up one up, then find an enemy, preferably one in the air near the height of your character (such as the jumping Ninji in the cave of World 1-1). Get directly next to the enemy, wait for it to get to the top of its jump, throw the vegetable, then immediately run after it. You should end up catching it.

Hint: Maximize your coins

When you use the magic potion to get the mushrooms, do not pick up the surrounding vegetables (which are coins in the magic door) immediately. Find the location in each level where there are the most vegetables that are close together. Drop the magic potion and go in the door. Pick up as many coins as possible. Repeat this once, after doing something that will make the potion reappear (such as climbing a vine, going down a pipe, or entering a door).

In World 3-1, choose Toad as your character because of his lifting power. Fall down the waterfall onto the platform where the door is at the bottom. Enter the door and get the magic potion. Drop it anywhere there is a continuous stream of coins. Enter this door, and grab as many coins as possible. Go out the door you came in, then return, and repeat once.

Hint: Extra lives

Each time the spinners start in the bonus round, the second symbol in the first slot is always a cherry. Do it correctly, and you can guarantee yourself an average at least one extra life per coin. Alternatively,rapidly press the buttons and, depending on your technique, you can get an extra life once out of every three tries.

Hint: "WOP" block

To find a block that reads "WOP", take a potion to any block that reads "POW". Use the potion. When in the world behind the door (sub-space), pick up the block where the "POW" block was. It should now say "WOP". Hold on to the block until you automatically leave sub-space. Then there should be a block in your hand, and a block in the space where you picked it up. Both blocks will read "POW."

Hint: World 1-1 shortcut

Immediately after the falling part, you will eventually reach a door that leads to a cave with a waterfall in it. Go up the vine, then run and jump to the left side, where you can perform a super jump (hold Down for two seconds, then press A) to reach the ledge. Throw the little guy into the hole with the ladder. Next, pick up one of the bombs and jump into the hole. Hold it and use it to break the wall. Go through the door and climb the ledges (super jumping when needed). You will fight the boss early. Note: You will lose a hit when you use the bomb; make sure you have more than one.

Hint: World 1-2 shortcut

In World 1-2, choose Luigi as your character, then get the carpet and fly to the land. Instead of getting the key, pick up the hopping ninja and throw it in front of the door. Then, prepare a squat jump (super jump) and wait for him to jump high. If performed correctly, you should jump and reach the hill above you. Run past the first door and go into the second one to fight the boss.

Hint: World 1-3 warp

At the end of the outside part of World 1-3, there is a vase object. If you carry a red liquid in a bottle and throw it there, you will descend to a warp zone.

Hint: World 3-1 warp

Fall down the waterfall in World 3-1 and stay in the middle. At the end, there will be a cave. Enter it and pick up all of the plants. In one of them is a potion. Do not throw it. Instead, hold it and and find the vase at the end of the cave. Face it, standing directly next to it, then throw the potion. It should land on top of the vase. Stand on the vase and go through the door that the potion created. When you are in the door's level, go down into the vase and you will warp to World 5

Hint: World 6-3 shortcut

In World 6-3, climb the vine or go through the door to get to the next area. Instead of going right through the world, go left into the quicksand, and continue holding Left. As soon as you see your character's head disappear start jumping to the left. Keep going until you reach a door. Go through the door and you should appear on a cloud. Keep jumping from cloud to cloud until you see a door go, then enter this door for a shortcut.

Glitch: Change Music

Get a potion but do not throw it. Get a Starman, then throw the potion and go into the door it creates. Once in there, stay inside until the Starman time has almost expired, then exit. If done correctly, the game should start playing the Subcon music instead of the level music. This effect will continue until you enter a door, go in a pipe, or lose a life.
