Mario and Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story

How do I access other pipes in Bowser?

Games Guru: As you become stronger (and learn new moves and abilities) as Mario and Luigi in the game, you’ll be able to access pipes that get you to Dimble Wood, Town Toad Caves and Bowser’s Castles.

How do you beat Blizzard Midbus?

Games Guru: It’s no breeze. But here are some tips: http://www.mariowiki.com/Blizzard_Midbus

When areas like the Nerve Cluster and Lumbar Nook react, it looks like they’re being damaged. When areas like the Arm Central and Rump Command react, it looks like they’re collecting energy. And when areas like the Pump Works and the Airway react, little circles come out of it. Why do areas have these different reactions?

Games Guru: You’d have to ask Mr. Miyamoto and his team at Nintendo of Japan. I think it’s just a function of the way they wanted to design the game. By the way, the best place to train the brothers is in the Airway.

      Use Bowser’s Fire attacks and high attacking Special Moves. Swallow the snowmen he puffs out. Use the Mario Bros’ Fire and hammer attacks. when you get 8 puffs of snow, Blizzard Midbus’ crown will clog, so no more snowmen will come out. Keep on using the fire and special attacks until he dies. BTW, it’s the last Midbus battle. What’s next is the Dark Star. then Dark Fawful, and finally, Dark Bowser. ALL ARE HARD!

  7. Guys, i’m downright STUCK on the Totemglobin’s challenge! I always manage to hit the 7th block, but I can never get to the 8th block in time! And you want to know what I started doing after I gave up? Focusing on getting Mario and Luigi to level 40, thus getting them to the REAL final rank-Rainbow Rank!

  15. How do you beat Junker??? He is soooo hard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • smellypotatoes // July 12, 2016 at 6:35 pm // Reply

      Stock items. Some of his attacks are simpler to counter than others, but generally if you get to lower than half health, just heal. Mash specials, and when you run out use a syrup jar. If you’re having trouble with money, go to the toad plaza in Bowser’s Body and sell a few trinkets you won’t ever use. It’s no breeze, but preparing is definitely over half the battle.

    I finally got to Dark Bowser, but I can’t beat him. Can anybody give me any battle tips?

    • coolguy19755 // December 17, 2012 at 7:26 am // Reply

      Never mind, I beat him.

    • When first fighting him, I recommend Shy Guy Squad and Broggy Bonker as your special attacks. When Dark Bowser dies and is revived, punch him in the stomach (there is also a target for his head, but you’ll miss if you aim for that). He’ll cough out Fawful and you can use the Vacuum Block.
      Once Fawful is inside, use jump attacks to break his glasses first. Then, go for the legs. If you break all the legs, you can attack the Dark Star Core. Use Jump Helmet, Magic Window, or Falling Star (no normal attacks!)
      After you have done about 5 attacks with both bros, Fawful will escape from Bowser’s body, and you’ll have to do the same process over (don’t worry, they never regain HP).

    • Just level up until you get somewhere around Level 45, and try again.You will be stronger, so it will take less hits. For Dark Star Core, use the powers Snack Basket, Magic Window, and Falling Star. Good luck! 😀

  38. Dark bowser is only hard hard part… I can live forever but I can’t suck in fawful!!!!
    I press y,z over and over and over again. Aprox 100 times per minute but I can’t get and keep fawful in!!!!!!!!!!

  40. how do you beat junk trasher

    • grandmen2909 // October 25, 2012 at 6:09 pm // Reply

      First, use your falling star ability to attack him, then defeat the mini trashs so you have more of an advantage to attack, or use the weaker items so you don’t run out of SP, oh, and stock up on HP items!:)

    • its easy first beat his minions then keep using snack basket

    • coolguy19755 // April 1, 2013 at 1:29 pm // Reply

      Keep using Magic Window on it. It worked for me.

  41. i cannot beat bowser please help

    I cannot knock the third sage over, no matter how hard i try!!

    • U have to go to dimble wood and get 6 attack pieces and then go to wiggler and show him your pieces and he will let u into the place where the other attack pieces are and you will get and attack that will knock him down.
