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:

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.

  2. helpful tip:Don’t use the unlock all abilities code on the action replay. it will keep the game from working past the part where you get out of bowser

        u dont go down the hole, you go to the side to fall down peach’s castle. to get up,use spike ball on the soft wall.

    Hey, if anyone needs advice on counterattacks or anything else, just let me know. I can help.

      i need help on the trash robot and his buddy’s that Midbus sent out. this is at Peach’s castle.

      • king dedede // May 4, 2010 at 6:39 pm //

        For Pokemon409: To beat the trash robot (a.k.a. Junker), some recommended attacks are Snack Basket, Mighty Meteor, Magic Window, or Falling Star (if you have all Attack Pieces, which are found in Peach’s Castle.) Also, if Luigi gets trapped in the little ones, jump on the one he fell into. Hope that helps.
        P.S. Jumps are more effective than hammers.
        P.P.S. I’m also 5goldenrings.


  9. i can finish the carot eating level

  10. I can’t beat ice Midbus

    • dyl pickle // April 28, 2010 at 8:32 am // Reply

      yeah me too i had to exit and learn the spinpipe move on plack beach t didnt upgrade my hp though i had to use alot of counter attacks but spin pipe takes off 200 hp or if you learn magic window after beating 3 aliens in bowsers castle it takes off 400 hp

    • Marioman, before you take on the Dark Star, level up Mario and Luigi ASAP because when they attack, they will hit harder, and you know what they say: The bigger they are, the harder they fall!!!!

  15. I like the sideways battles

    hellp! I need help on the robot Midbus sends out that’s made of garbage. I also need a good place to train. Peach’s castle is good, but the Fawful bots always take me out in one hit! plz help

    • The best place to train the borthers is any place outside of Bowser’s body. The best place is Toad Town Caves. Go through the caves beating all the enemies you can find, go up the pipe to Toad town, then find a way back in and keep repeating until satisfied.

      • videeogammer // May 26, 2010 at 9:31 am //

        tipmaster is wrong. Airway os best, but u cant get there yet. just saying

  17. I rescued Peach Yesterday but then lost against the blue cells

  18. 5goldenrings // April 6, 2010 at 6:34 pm // Reply

    I made it to Star Rank before entering Peach’s Castle.

  19. I know why they react like that:

    They are trying to get your attention so you know where to go when something is happeneing.

  20. use an action replay

    We ask, how to get past the giant carrot that Bowser has to eat.We have been stuck on it for one year!!!

  22. I can’t beat the caterpillar guy.

    • it is hard but i did it punch the yellow dots on him and hit him in the head.

    • pokemon409 // April 11, 2010 at 8:44 am // Reply

      there are 3 catrpillars in this game (well actually 2. u fight one of the catrpillars twice). tell me which one your on.

    • pokemon2000 // April 18, 2010 at 11:21 pm // Reply

      punch his head until he does the attack where he goes up on two feet and falls on you, then punch all of his body segments. he will lose energy and you will be able to damage him

    • Anonymous, to beat the Wiggler, you must use the Vaccum Block on him because he is impeniterable to attacks when he’s red. Once he’s yellow again, use your attacks.

  23. how do they go into his body is bowser`s body

    • fawful tricks him into eating a “lucky shroom” which is really a “vaccum shroom” which makes him inhale everything in his path, and two of the things he inhales is Mario and Luigi.

    • mariomaster // April 6, 2010 at 4:06 pm // Reply

      to mike they get in when bowser eats a “lucky” mushroom from fawful. bowser is now a walking vacum and sucks everyone in.
