The Legendary Starfy

I’m at the place where you have to get by without Star spin or turbo-swim, and I keep getting eaten by the Snark. How do I get by?

Games Guru: Sometimes that darn squid is hard to deal with. Though I’m not exactly sure where you are in the game, you should be able to get through by timing it right. If not, have you tried blowing fire?

      You know how it does that “code” on the door? It’s giving you the time they want you to finish in. I just got that yesterday and figures it out 5 minutes later (SPOILER– it’s Old Man Lobber in there. Saw it on YouTube.)

    -.- Mashtooth is EASY. For the final form, DO NOT SPAM THE Y BUTTON!!! IT WILL NOT WORK. THE GAME DOESN’T CARE HOW FAST YOU PRESS IT. All you HAVE TO DO is get something lage and trace it over the Y button. EASY.

    • get something LARGE not lage Imean.

      • emboar002 // August 23, 2013 at 8:24 am //

        what large thing can i use i have been playing this game for years and i still didnt ind a way thx

    • DO spam the Y button the game DOES care and tracing it with something large just dosn’t make any sense. If you press the button fast enough it works. You just gotta have epic skillz. Like me.

    • DINOMANIAdude2001 // March 3, 2011 at 5:45 pm // Reply

      just use the geysers to blast yorself up on top of him. double jump and use the star spin to knock him down. then do the same on his belly. when your in the waterfall thing, dodge the rocks and star spin on his belly.

  18. Help! Mashtooth keeps on swallowing me through his nose

  19. i cant get past 3-2’s mini challenge

  20. Mr. FawfullyMan // August 10, 2010 at 7:56 am // Reply

    Um…could somone help me on world 3-2? thank you.

  21. You can always use star spin and turbo swim. If you mean the squid, tap left and right over and over until you get free. If you mean the big shark, there should be a secret blue door in his belly. you can beat the challenge and then exit the stage, or you can exit the shark’s belly through the currents.

  22. i tried the pen thing but i have ds lite and it keeps sliding off the button then i need to put it back on it making me lose time

  23. Starfy Fan // July 15, 2010 at 4:42 pm // Reply

    Also about the mega snark, since at some point you have to use the star spin, just go fast and make sure
    NOT TO GET DIZZY!!! He’ll catch you if you get dizzy.

    I need help too. I can’t find out how to get through a door on the S.S. Logwater.. It’s the one that you have to put the skeleton fish on after you get past the Mega Snark. I’ve been to the locked door but the fish will have come off the button! I’m not sure if I need to have someone play with me… PLEASE HELP!!!!

  25. i can’t get past a eleticafide (sorry bout the mispelling) any tips?

    im on the part where you have to beat king ping and im stuck.oh and i really like the game its awsome

    • airbender101 // June 1, 2010 at 7:20 am // Reply

      I am to I know how you feel. But I can help u just hit him with a star spin when he tries to kick you then when the ice comes down use a star spin to block them. keep doing that until he brakes the floor. When that happens swim under the spikes so it falls down on him. When it hits is head go down and use your star spin on him.

      p.s. watch out for his snowflakes

    i’m stuck on world on 3-2 on chilly dip cove

  33. i know same with me!!!

  34. i dont know how to get past the first part of mashtooth

    • You don’t know how to beat Mashtooth? Here is the answer
      first you air jump over Mashtooth’s head you’ll have to glide for a second or 2. Then you do shooting star attack. If you have trouble dodging the lightnings, just see where the thin lightning goes and don’t go in the spot that the thin lightning landed. If you also have trouble with Mashtooth sucking up everything, dash to the opposite side of Mashtooth if you the rocks are blocking you way, you star spin on them so won’t get hit and won’t lose your life.

    • lukartheman // August 14, 2011 at 9:59 am // Reply

      All you have to do is, when Mashtooth charges, jump over him and spin attack. When he gets to 5 HP left, he will show these small strikes of lightning. They show where the bigger strikes are, so get away from them. When Mashtooth gets down to 3 HP, he will try to inhale Starfy. Dash away from him and spin attack the rocks. While fighting the second form, you have to keep hitting Mashtooth’s head while dodging the lightning. Once Mashtooth goes to the “Second Layer” you will have to spin attack what appears to be A mace’s head. Repeat until he is down. On the final form, you just have to button mash the “Y” button. The red beam is near impossible unless you are a great button masher, and you pause and keep your muscles steady. Another way to do it is the CHEAP way, where you get a pen/coin and rub it over the “Y” key.

  35. The starfy series accculy started in Japan. 3 gameboy advance games were released, then he had 1 ds game so this is the fifth in the series from what Iv’e heard.

  36. How do you avoid those lightning strikes on the second Mashtooth? I’ve been stuck since I got there.

    • squirtlelover // January 12, 2010 at 6:39 pm // Reply

      When the thin lines of lightning strike, that is where the real lightning will strike.Just get in the middle of the thin lines and you will dodge the lightning bolts if you stay there.

  37. I don’t have it, but it sounds good.

  38. i cant beat the part when you have to rapidly press y

  39. YEAH!!!!!!!!!! My Dad finnaly beat mashtooth! Oh, and by the way, for all you lucky people,after you beat mashtooth, get to the big world map then press the R button once and…. TADA!!! you get world 10 witch is…. PUFFTOP!! And for a added bonus:get to play as starly, get to fight konk, and treasure room at the end! Bye!

  40. Yea, mashtooth is a pain. i got to him in 2 days but the part were you have to rapidly press y… iv’e been stuck on it for months.

  41. it is cool

  42. To get past that mega snark, just don’t use turbo swim or star spin. When an enemy gets in your way, use the star spin and quickly hide behind one of the masts (the big wooden poles.) Really, it’s that simple!
    P.S.It will be useful if you DO get eaten by the mega snark…

  43. since ya have to hide behind the poles,wait until after mega snark attempts to eat you,then turbo swim as fast as you can to the next pole.does mega snark still keep get’n ya?try turbo swimming behind the may not have any pearls,but it’s worth it.besides,later in the level,you have to go inside mega snark to get a shard that he swallowed.

    my sister has it too and she is really good at it and she is so much better at video games than me, but before you comment on that she is also three years older than me so that makes a difference.

    when you know what to do you can get past the last level on mashtooth,and there are three levels on mashtooth one you have to beat him with your shooting star move and when he gets down to four hits he starts to suck you in by his nose,once you beat that he turns into mega mashtooth you have to hit him on the head three times for him to lose one health point and then he throws medal balls at you so hit it with your star spin and hope that they hit him the last one is really hard I barley couldn’t get past it you have to push y as fast as you you can there are two health points on this one is easy one is hard so hope you can finish it I have can you?
