The Bonefin Galaxy is a galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy. This galaxy, like the Drip Drop Galaxy, is basically a large body of water with a solid core. However, unlike the Drip Drop Galaxy, this galaxy has a large, spiky shell shielding most of it. This galaxy is home to Kingfin, a gigantic skeletal shark that Mario must defeat to earn a Power Star.


The Starshroom (starting planet) and Kingfin's Planet


When Mario first enters the galaxy, he will start out on a green Starshroom near the Kingfin Planet. There are several Star Bits on its underside and a Launch Star on the top of it will take Mario to the Kingfin Planet.

Kingfin's Planet[edit]

Mario in the planet

When Mario lands on this planet, Kingfin will appear along with Skeletal Fish Guards and attack Mario. After Kingfin is defeated, the Power Star appears.
