To get 1 shine sprite you need the turbo-nozzle. Once you have it go next to the police men and tirbo into the door you will be in a minigame and you can only do the minigame with the turbo-nozzle. | Submitted by Ruler

If you want one sprite you will need:

Yoshi skill
Maybe Fruit.

Once you have got these set off to the place where boats come (not In the sea!) and WITH yoshi skillfully jump onto a boat and wait until you get to and ISLAND... If you do not get onto the island try the other boat. once you get to the island with no basket quickly eat the yellow bird for a sprite!

NOTE: If you collect a sprite with yoshi he will say "Yoshi!". | Submitted by Ruler

This trick allows you to access Pianta Village without the rocket nozzle. Get behind the Shine Gate in Delfino Plaza, and jump onto the first small wall. Face away from the gate, backflip (quickly press the opposite direction and jump) and hover over to the large Shine, and land on the little overhang surrounding it. Go to the edge facing the rest of the plaza, turn around, and do a triple jump, only make the first two jumps small. Do this next part quickly and carefully: on the peak of the third jump, hover, turn around, and grab on to the top of the gate. Jump into the pipe, and congrats! You've just gotten into Pianta Village without using the Rocket Nozzle. | Submitted by DayleJ

If you complete the game with 119 Shine Sprites or less you will get an ending screen in which el Piantissimo inspects the paintbrush. However, if you finish it with all 120 Shine Sprites, the ending screen will show all the characters in the game.

When falling from high places, press L to do a Ground Pound. This will make you fall very fast and not lose health.

In the beginning, when you are doing "Road To Big Windmill", look at the top of the windmill and you will notice that Petey is already there. If you beat him at this time, you will skip the first stage and you will be able to go to the third level. This is how you get to him. First, go to those platforms that have the ropes attached to the side, and jump up the ropes to the wood and start going up the side of the windmill and eventually get to the top where Petey resides. It will be just like the battle in the second level. Beat Petey and you have access to the third level without having to do all of the work of the first level. Hope this will help you in some strange sort of way. | Submitted by Matthew

To get blue coins explore the whole place around Isle Delfino (NOTE: You Can Find people on little Islands too!) and you find people that ask you For things and put it in there basket (e.g. Coconut,pineapple etc.) If you get them what they require they will give you 1 Blue Coin, once you have ten visit somewhere on isle delfino to trade 10 for a sprite. If you do this cheat again you will get a life. | Submitted by CHEATer

In Gelato Beach and other levels where there are Bubbas (the big red fish that drags Mario underwater), you can keep them from doing this attack with this little trick. Pick up a piece of fruit and start swimming with it. It will enable a glitch where they cannot drag you. This is very useful for the Red Coin Shine in Gelato Beach.

You need 120 sprites to complete the game. | Submitted by Ruler

Instead of taking a bath each time Mario gets dirty, do one or two spin jumps.

If you don't know how to use the circle spots on the ground (doesn't matter where you are) then here's how. First, step onto the circle. Then, do a ground pound on it. There, you will fall down a hole and you will get to explore underground! You can find coins or sometimes even blue coins. Use them to get to secret places. | Submitted by Austin

After you beat the game you can go to the Delfino Airport. When your there gather 100 coins to obtain a 1-up. Exit the stage and head over toward the cannon that sends you to Delfino Park. Dive in the water at the end of the street and at the sea floor is a hole with a free man. Get it and return to the Delfino Airstrip. it costs 10 coins which means you now have 90. Gather 10 more to get the 1-up and then leave. Get the one under the water again and keep repeating this trick for massive lives. | Submitted by NickAddy

Here's how to get an extra shine sprite. Go to the east side of town, and you'll see a blue Pianta guy, jumping with anger:). Get onto that building and cross the rope. When you get to the other side, climb to the very top of that tower. you'll see a bell on the tower straight across from you, with a bunch of goop on it. spray it until it's clean, and a shine sprite will appear. Got to the building connected to the one you're on and ground pound on the little circle with the picture on it. then go the direction opposite the water. Then you'll be under a tower.

To make Mario get around a little faster, use the single spray nozzle and shoot a small amount of water in front of him. Run and press B to do a belly slide. He will slide through the water and keep going at a high speed. This will continue as long as you do not hit anything.

Find a patch of flowers and spray them all quickly. Four or five Coins will appear from the middle of the patch.

On the Ricco Harbor level when you fight glooper blooper the first time at the begining of the level you will have to go across the little ship. Instead of going right before the end of the ship go to the end of it and jump on to the place where the ricco tower is placed on. Jump on the little stack of boxes and climb onto the top. Make sure you have your hover nozzle. Perform a very big spin jump and the second you wo'nt go any higher before you start to fall use your hover nozzle and grab on the legde You will get to Glooper Blooper much faster that way. | Submitted by TurnerDolman

Gold Birds = Shine
Green Butterfly = 1up
Green Birds = Coin
Gold Butterflys = coin
Bees = Coin
Bee Hives = Blue Coin
Blue Birds = Blue Coin | Submitted by RobertWolfe

This trick works on the Gelato Beach level in the stage, "Wiggler Ahoy! Full Steam Ahead!". Battle Wiggler as usual, then, when you've ground pounded the worm the third time, you'll hear the boss music slow down. Before the Shine Sprite appears, press Z to view your map.

If you timed the Z press correctly, you'll hear the slower remix of the boss music! In the map mode, hit cancel, then IMMEDIATELY press the Z button again to listen to a much faster remix! This doesn't give you any extra lives or anything, BUT it is useful if you love game music!

Go to the harbour in Delfino Plaza. Wait awhile and a boat will come in. Jump on top of the boat and wait for it to leave. As you are going under the bridge, jump and get the coin. You will go inside a secret level. Collect the coins for a Shine. | Submitted by TheGamingZuchini

Now, you don't have to do all of that hard work to get to Corona Mountain. This will only work if you have 200 coins or more. Talk to the pianta on the building who throws you into the shine building. Give him 200 coins or more and he will fling you into Corona Mountain. And you thought he was a useless bum! | Submitted by Sarah

To seem as if it is raining, have the sprayer equipped and do a triple jump. Then, hold R after you land. Drops will be falling from the sky.

Once you've beaten the game (and saved your game), you will be able to go back to the Airport from the very beginning. It'll cost you, though. For the price of 10 coins, a boat close to the clocktower where you find Yoshi will take you to the Airport level -- which is filled with coins and fun stuff to do.

When you complete a minigame go back to the same level and there will be a red coin challenge. | Submitted by robert

When you are selecting a file you can do a Spin Move and the Side Jump to get onto the blocks.

After jumping, you can do a spin by rotating the Analog-stick once in a circle.
