SDAlogo runner.png This game has a run page on SDA!

The enhanced remake of the N64 Classic. Released in 2004-2005. Instead of just playing as Mario, this time, Mario, Luigi and Wario are now trapped. You start off with Yoshi and save your allies in their own portraits. In place of the original analog controls, players can either use the D-Pad or the Touch screen. Other additions include: 150 Stars in total, some tweaks with the old star tasks and more than 30 rabbits in the castle.


Fastest way to travel

The fastest way to travel long distances is performing Long Jumps. It's faster than running.

Character’s Stats (From the offical instruction manual)


Speed 2/3

Jump 3/3 (Can perform flutter jumps to increase distance & height on the first two jumps).

Power 0/3


  • Can swallow small enemies and produce eggs
  • Hitting loads of enemies with 1 egg can produce loads of coins. So an egg that contained a koopa (5 coins) that hits 3 Goombas, it will produce 5 coins for each hit, so it's 18 coins overall (15 from the Koopa egg and 3 from the Goombas) making it useful for 100 coins stars.
  • Has the flutter kicks for both 1st and 2nd jumps to gain more height and distance.
  • Swallowing camp fires allow Yoshi to breathe out a single flame, useful for both Cool Cool Mountain Red Coins, and SnowMan's Land Ice Sculpture.


  • The weakest character of the lot that it can't destroy a block without a Bob-omb and needs a character hat (and play as Mario, Luigi or Wario) to defeat Bowser.
  • Power Flower isn't really special; it allows Yoshi to breathe out more flames in a certain period of time.

Errors from instruction manual

  • Dispite having a 3 Star rating on Jump. Yoshi's Triple Jump doesn't goes as high as Mario's who has a 2 star rating on Jump.


Speed 2/3

Jump 2/3 (only character to perform wall jumps)

Power 2/3


  • Fastest runner of the 4
  • The only character to wall jump
  • The only character to have 2 powerups (the only one to use the Wing Cap in single player).
  • The only character to unlock Big Star Doors (Bowser 1, 2 and the 50 star door)
  • Gives out the biggest distance on Long Jumping.


  • Doesn't have any way to reach massive distances as effective as Luigi.
  • His ? power ups are not really useful in the 80 star speed run.

Errors from instruction manual

  • Mario's Star rating on Jump is 2 which is lower than both Luigi & Yoshi (who have 3 Stars on Jump) but Mario beats both Luigi and Yoshi on Long Jumping distance. It beats Yoshi but just ties with Luigi on Triple Jump height.


Speed 2/3

Jump 3/3 (the only character to cancel a Backward Somersault to a Helicopter Spin)

Power 1/3


  • Most effective flower power skill, it allows to skip some obstacles.
  • A back flip that covers enormous distances and medium-high heights quickly.
  • Can run across water for a few seconds.
  • Fastest swimmer.
  • No slippery shoes gimmick seen in other Mario games (SMB2j, Smash Bros Melee)


  • Cannot Wall jump.
  • Power up doesn't reach godly heights like Balloon Mario.

Errors from instruction manual

  • Luigi has a Power rating of 1 but it isn't noticeablly different compared to Mario who has a Power rating of 2. Probably it's the power of Luigi tossing Bowser out of the arena, Wario can do it easily.


Speed: 1/3

Jump: 1/3

Power: 3/3 (The only character to destroy Black Blocks, grey boulders and defeat Snowmen)


  • The only character to destroy black blocks
  • Long Jump speed is equal to the other 3 (so seriously stick with Long Jump to keep the time difference minimal).


  • Slowest runner
  • Slowest swimmer
  • Poorest triple jumper
  • His ability is really a gimmick (a slow guy just to destroy huge objects).

Errors from instruction manual

  • For having the worst jumps his rating should be 0. It's that bad.


Run on water much longer than usual.

  • Enter Jolly Roger Bay and start off as Yoshi with Luigi's cap selected. Then get hit by a Goomba and quickly run across the water, you should be able to run across the water for a long time. It only stops when you jump or probably stop. This is caused because during the form change you can still use Luigi's powers (such as Water Running or performing a A,A,A combo).

Glitch into Bowser 3 without 80 Stars

  • Enter the 50 Star Door then go to the second step to going to the Bowser 3 80 Star Door. Slide By going R+A and you will fall into the top of the Endless Staircase.
  • Note: Do not slide while too much near the wall or you'll fall into a Black Room and Die.
  • This might take a few attempts.
