|"How High Can You Fly?"
be a high-flyer, fly onto the top of the little arch, then launch off of
it, and smoothly land on the giant fence that blocks off the corner of
the course with the log. It is possible to stand on that sliver of
a fence!! You are now standing on the highest part of the
course. Now, jump off of that fence to start flying again, and you
will get a great view of the course.
Now, for added fun, you can use the "Olympic
Flyer" camera techniques to change the view. If you use
the overhead view, you can do a cool butt-stomp
into the volcano (from higher than normal).

Can you kill the Big Bully without touching the battleground he is
-- Here's how to do it: --
- Get the flying cap.
- Get to a high place.
- Hit him while flying. (He needs to be close to the edge.)

Date Submitted: Monday, June 25, 2001
- Get down to two units of power.
- You know those torches near the painting you enter to reach lava
land? Light Mario's butt, then QUICKLY ENTER THE PAINTING!
- [Choose any star,] and as soon as
Mario touches the ground, he dies!
Hah hah he he! I renamed this
trick because this one could work great for playing a funny joke on a
friend. Before your friend is in the room, do steps 1 & 2
above. Now, put down the controller (maybe even turn the TV off, but
leave the N64 running) and go chat with your friend about something
totally unrelated. Then, ask your friend if he or she would like
to play some video games. When you get back to the TV (and turn it
on), tell your friend that you were in the middle of a game, but he or she
can take over your game. As soon as they pick a star, Mario will
die!! Ha ha ha!
I hope I am not corrupting many
young minds by sharing my "powers of trickery". Please
only use this power for good! :-) P.S. One of my other
hobbies is performing Magic Tricks. Those can be a lot of fun too!
|"Tony Hawk Shell Surfing"
Date Submitted: Monday, June 25, 2001
James says: If you do this you are a
shell surfing champion!
- Get the shell.
- Collect every single coin, except the ones in the
volcano, without losing the shell, and there is a
catch... You cannot touch the hot lava except to get the
coins under the bridge.
- After that go to the rolling red log star and retrieve it (but
don't loose the shell or touch the ground!).
|"Big Bully's New Fighting Arena"
Date Submitted: Thursday, June 07, 2001
Find the first big bully (not the one where you have to kill the
three small bullies, the lonely one). Can you push him off of the
large platform onto the smaller platform to the left (the one that
periodically sinks halfway into the lava) without killing him off?
This is a HARD trick to do, because I've done it twice (one on
accident, the other I actually tried).
My reply: I was able to make him land on the
sinking platform, but then he ran right off of it and into the lava.
|"Jump To Pole"
Go to the very top of the inside of the volcano, then long
jump to the pole near the fire-shooter.
I've enhanced the screenshot,
but you might still need to turn up the
brightness on your monitor:
|"Stand on Arch"
Stand on the arch near the beginning of the course:
My record for coins on this course is 133
coins! This is the most
possible number of coins you can get on this level too (I am very certain).
My strategy is to first bump off all of the bomb bullies then get all
the other coins. There is also hidden coins on the Bowser puzzle (just
simply stand on his mouth then wait for the puzzle to be completed then
5 coins pop out. You also have to make sure that you have cleared out
all of the coins outside of the volcano. Just for reference, there are
107 coins outside the volcano and 26 (two of them of which are hard to
get...especially the highest bully) in the volcano!
Then when you are inside the volcano comes the hardest part. What I
mean are the two bullies that are in the volcano because their location
isn't convenient for collecting the coin that pops out of both of them!
The trick is to lure the first one off of its ramp onto the lower one.
Then if done right it should just walk to the end and you can punch it
off then grab the coin. Then the top bully is a different story! You
must push it off of the edge then quickly jump off with it. Location is
also an important factor...what I mean by that is you must lure the
bully to the bridge then punch him off and land on a flat ground. 133 is
the number to reach for in this course. In my opinion some people will
get as far as 131 or 132 if they are skilled. 133 if you are really
skilled! It is possible because I did it...of course after dieing or
restarting about 50 times. Good Luck!
|"Burn Your Way to the Bullies"
Visitor says: Choose star 5 or 6
and go towards the shell. Don't use it! Instead, go right into the
lava and advance your way to the little bully platform. Can you make
it without dying. The trick is: When Mario is jumping in pain land on
a platform and heal yourself with the coins, then keep jumping until
you reach the platform. For more challenge, when you get there, get
your power down to any level so you'll die if you hit the lava once,
(That's 3 or under) and don't use any jump attacks, stunts. In other
words don't go off ground, just use punches and kicks. Good luck...
Can you get the red coins and the star on the Bowser puzzle WITHOUT
losing the shell, even when the star appears? In other words, get the
coins and the star using the shell. You HAVE to select star #5.
I think this is actually the
easiest way to get this star. :-)
Is Bad For You"
You have to have all six course stars for this trick to work. Once
you get all of the six course stars, get the turtle shell and ride it
over to the rolling log. Once you get over there crash your shell into
the log. Mario will be stuck under the log screaming and smoking in
the process. This is not really a trick, its just a funny thing to
Matthew Manning. He submitted all of the following tricks:
- Try to kill all the enemies with the green shell without losing
- Fly into the volcano with the flying hat and without touching the
- Get to the flying hat using the teleporter.
- Get to the flying hat without the teleporter.
- Get all 1 up mushrooms.
- Get the coins below the bridge without the shell.
I have not yet tried any of these tricks
"Track down all 12 Viking bombs (the ones that try to push you
off into the lava) and kill them (this includes the big ones you battle
for stars). Make sure you destroy all the ones outside before venturing
into the volcano."
"The bombs are territorial, so, if you stand in certain places
only certain ones will come after you. (Helpful when being attacked by
two or more at the same time!)"
