“Welcome to the Honeyhive Kingdom! Our queen rules this land.”
Bee, Super Mario Galaxy

The Honeyhive Galaxy (also known as the Honeyhive Kingdom and originally as the Honeybee Galaxy) is a galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy. This forest-based galaxy is full of flowers and Honeycomb Wall‎s and is inhabited by friendly bees. The kingdom and its bee subjects are ruled by Queen Bee. The Bee Mushroom debuts here, and Mario learns how to use the Bee Suit here. This is one of the three bee-themed galaxies, the other two being the Honeyclimb Galaxy and Gold Leaf Galaxy.

Planets/Areas[edit]

NOTE: Unless otherwise marked, all names are unofficial.

Starting Planet[edit]

The starting planet of the Honeyhive Galaxy.

The first Planet that Mario visits contains many Bees, Boulders, and on occasion, Mandibugs. The first Bee Mushroom is located on this planet. There are also Flipbugs on this planet, as well as a large waterfall in the middle. The area behind the waterfall has a lot of honey on the floor which slows Mario down. A Launch Star at the end of this area will lead the player to the Flower Planet. The Toad Brigade and the first Power Star can be found in a treetop here. On the second mission, Mario can use a Sproutle Vine to reach an area with a Sling Star, leading to another area with a button and a Wiggler around it. When Mario presses it, it leads to the side of the starting planet, an area with boxes on them and a Launch Star leading to the Hat Planets. In mission three, Queen Bee is behind the water, asking for Mario's assistance. A Launch Star appears later on, taking Mario to the Bugaboom Planet.

Observation Deck[edit]

The Observation Deck is a wooden platform with three stories. Level two's mini-boss and Power Star are found here. Mario must use a swing here to get across the pit. At the bottom of this pit, a trampoline can be found. If Mario falls into the pit, there is a Life Mushroom guarded by two Mandibugs on the bottom level of the observation deck. Two trampolines can be used to get Mario up to the second level, which also has two Mandibugs and two walls for Mario to wall jump, so that he can get to the third level. In the third level, Mario must ground pound a button while avoiding another Mandibug. After doing so, the windmill starts, and helps Mario to reach the mini-boss: two Mandibugs stacked on top of each other.

Flower Planet[edit]

This planet contains many floating flower platforms. The bottom of the planet is full of lily pads floating in water that work as landing spots for Bee Mario. Several rock-spitting Octoguys and some Piranha Plants reside around the edges of the pond. Mario must reach the spinning flower platforms floating above this planet by using the Fling Flowers and the Bee Suit. In the middle of the floating flower platforms is a gigantic flower platform, above which is a Launch Star that takes Mario to the Queen Bee Planet when used. In between the flower platforms, several fountains are found, which continually blast water into the air and will turn Bee Mario back into Mario if he is hit.

Queen Bee Planet[edit]

The Queen Bee planet.

This planet is what the Bees call the "Queen's castle". This planet contains Queen Bee and some Bees. This planet starts with a honey wall. At the bottom of the wall, a bee and a Piranha Plant can be found. To climb up the wall, Mario must run into it and go upwards. It requires one jump and fly period and the rest is climbing. There are some optional jump and fly periods for shortcuts, coins, 1-ups, etc. At the very top of the wall, a Piranha Plant can be seen holding down a sproutle. When Mario defeats it, it releases the sproutle, which brings Mario right in front of Queen Bee. Queen Bee is hovering in the middle of the Queen Bee planet. The Queen Bee Planet is filled with water and has a rim of ground going around it. It is possible to stick to Queen Bee and climb around her.

Hat Planets[edit]

These are two planets which twist around. The Hat Planets have many enemies. Several Piranha Plants are on the top hat planet, which Mario can defeat in order to receive star bits and coins. Then he must proceed to the bottom of the planet. Once there, Mario can jump and land in a ring of star bits on the second planet, which contains two Wigglers. At the bottom of this planet, a Launch Star can be found, which leads to the Rattle Planet.

Rattle Planet[edit]

The Rattle Planet is, as its name points out, shaped like a rattle. There is a large bulb at the top and an inaccessible stick at the bottom. On the bulb at the top, many Piranha Plants are found. Defeating them will give Mario star bits or coins. A ? Coin is found nearby, which releases a Rainbow Star so that Mario can defeat all the Piranha Plants.

Bugaboom Planet[edit]

Bugaboom is fought here. When Mario arrives at the planet, two platforms are found, each one with a Fling Flower. The first one also has a Bee Mushroom, and the second platform has three coins. Mario must use the Bee Mushroom to reach the Fling Flowers and then fly on to the next platform. This planet is large and has a gigantic tree in the middle of it. There are several Fling Flowers, honey on the tree and a river of water in the way of scenery on the planet. There is also a Bee Mushroom which helps in the fight against Bugaboom.

Trivia[edit]

  • Another galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy, the Gold Leaf Galaxy, looks almost exactly like a mirror version of this galaxy, except with an autumn environment on the main planet and a few minor changes to the surrounding planets.
  • There is a group of Star Bits to the immediate right of the starting area that form a large letter "M", most likely referring to Mario. There is another group of Star Bits in the Gold Leaf Galaxy that are in the same position as these Star Bits (mirror-wise, of course), which form a large letter "L", most likely referring to Luigi.
  • The battle at the end of the Trouble on the Tower level is extremely similar to the battle at the end of the Puzzling Picture Block level in the Puzzle Plank Galaxy from Super Mario Galaxy 2, as these two levels are the only levels between the two games where a little Mandibug stacked on top of a big one is fought at the end of the level.
