  1. To everyone who has 120 stars and knows there’s more but can’t figure out how to get them: Defeat the final bowser again.

  2. i just got super m galexey i am stuck on the first level where you have to get the bunnies . i got 2 but can’t find the last one where is he ?

    • One rabbit is in the bushes, one is in the pipe and one is in a crater. Also listen for the hopping sound, you will hear it when you are near them.

    • MOVE A LOT IN THE BUSH and he will pop out cach him then talk to the girl and when she leaves spin to brake the thing then spin near the star and you will have to ciett star chips but DO NOT FALL INTO THE BLACK HOLE!! Because you will lose a life. The rest is on your own to fined.

      how do I get the last galaxy?

    • gameexpert39 // October 26, 2010 at 6:19 pm // Reply

      The 121st star is collected in super LUIGI galaxy mode when you collect every star in his mode of play(PS: you may need to make sure you collected every star in super Mario galaxy and you also might need to beat the final boss again to make sure it goes through correctly).

      • thats not how you get the 121st star
        you need to get all 120 stars with mario and then luigi and after that youll unlock a new galaxy called Grand Finale Galaxy and to get there (i had to look around the observatory a lot) go to the small floating planet that u can access when u get the three green stars and go behind the planet. youll see a new luma waiting and it will let u go to the grand finale galaxy where u need to collect 100 purple coins
        P.S. you need to do this with both mario and luigi to complete the game and have a total of 242 stars

    • FIRST GO TO HOME AFTER YOU HAVE 120 STARS AS MARIO AND CLICK A BUTTON THAT ALLOWS YOU TO SWITCH AND GET 120 STARS AS LUIGI AND GO TO THE TRIALS AND THERE WILL BE A NEW LAUNCH STAR, SPIN AND YOU WILL GO TO THE GRAND FINALE GALAXY AND PS ONCE YOU HAVE 120 STARS AS MARIO REPLAY THE FATE OF THE UNIVERSE.

  9. to everyone here that own SMG1 reply to this and write your favorite galaxy from super mario galaxy 1!! mine is FreezeFlame Galaxy and Bouy Base. (if u reply make sure that the galaxys are from SMG1)

  10. i finished this whole game with mario and luigi each with 121 stars but i still dont have SMG2 and i want it soo bad

  11. I have 101 Power Stars.

    • NEWSFLASH:if you get the red star in the observatory AND 242 stars(total.) fly under the beacon,you see a purple coin. get it to be able fly in ALL galaxies! Then, fly over dino pirana, ground pound 3 times on his head,go to the observatory,Spin in the fountain dome and…YOU HAVE YOSHI!

  12. Did you know that Toy Time galaxy’s song is from the original Super Mario Bros?

  13. Shiny Zekrom // July 31, 2010 at 8:48 am // Reply

    SMG2 IS AWESOME!!!!!

    I have 72 power stars ind I beat bowser in the final battle

  14. I have this game for the wii and I beat the whole game.

  15. to get all the green stars do the following: feed the luma on dusty dune galaxy,save luigi in battlerock galaxy,and free the pipe on the one that says buoy something galaxy. good luck!

    If you want to buy the strategy guide for SMG2 because it has a cool poster, don’t because the poster is printer papar size

    The only thing close to codes in any mario game(or at least all the ones I’ve played) is to hack innto the game and I don’t think anyone here can tell you how to do that

  19. To beat the hidden star in deep dark galaxy, you will need to go into the water, then grab a shell and look for a shipwreck. When you find it throw the shell at it but don’t let it hit the bombs. You will be able to see what to do from there.

  20. i need cheat codes

  21. I hate purple coin comets their like the only ones I need I got all the normal stars and green stars. I need 9 more to complete the game and some are coins but a couple are timed which I hate. It’s harder than beating mirror mario.

    • yeah i know it takes alot of time to find them all
      and the hardest for me is the toytime galaxy purple comet named luigi’s purple coins

      • its much easier in galaxy 2 when cosmic marios are chasing you and the yellow platforms don’t flip

    how do you beat deep dark galaxy mystery star

    • Go under water to the bottom with a shell and throw it at the ship with the bombs around it, the ship will blow up and a launch star will appear, shake and shake and shake to get to the launch star and activate it. Then you will be in a box. Backwards somersualt into the air and shake to break the glass, then get the boo in the light and the star will appear.

    played the demo 4 galaxy 2 and is so AWESOME!!!!!! (yoshi’s pwned everybody i see)

  24. why dose peach get taken again after you beat bowser for the last time

  25. You defeat sorbetti by spining his nose (that glowing red dot).

    PS: I was wrong about the rock mario thing if they put that comment up.

  26. To defeat Sorbetti, roll into his nose (that glowing red thing)with rock mario.

      I hope you actually can help people, because I have a question:
      HOW DO YOU GET THE DARN COMET MEDAL ON WORLD 1-1?!

      -BL, please post this.

      • YoshiMan404 // November 28, 2010 at 11:23 am //

        On the planet after the two planetoids, backflip onto the second set. Wait in the middle, then you should find it.

    ask me or nin*gorin about SMG2.

  30. gregheffley // June 6, 2010 at 9:38 am // Reply

    When you’re Bee Mario, and you grab coins, you can fly farther.

  31. what do you do when there is a comet in the galaxy

    • gregheffley // June 6, 2010 at 9:31 am // Reply

      you try to get the power star when there’s a speedy comet, daredevil comet, cosmic comet, purple comet (NEW!), and a rainbow comet (ALSO NEW!)
