While redoing The Puzzling Picture Block mission, the player should make their way to the Pound Pillars Planet while collecting as many coins as they can. When they reach the aforementioned planet, they should feed the Hungry Luma seventy coins. This Luma will transform into Bugaboom's Wooden Planet. The player should make their way to the large tree in the middle using the Cloud Flower.

When the player lands on the large wooden tree planet, Bugaboom will appear and attacks the player. The player has to use the Cloud Mario form and use the springs to jump onto Bugaboom's back and ground pound him. After 3 hits, Bugaboom is defeated and Mario will earn a Power Star.
