Cosmic Mario Forest Race (also known as Cosmic Luigi Forest Race if playing as Luigi) is the fourth mission of Gold Leaf Galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy. This mission can only be played if a Cosmic Comet is in orbit. The goal of this mission is for Mario to race Cosmic Mario across an obstacle course to reach the Power Star before Cosmic Mario does. If Cosmic Mario reaches the Power Star before Mario can, Mario loses a life.


Mario initially lands on the Reverse Kingdom Planet. After walking a few steps, Cosmic Mario appears. Mario and Cosmic Mario then start racing towards the goal. Initially, Mario should make his way across the starting planet, taking the leftmost path at the first junction. Here, he should find blocks that he needs to jump across. After successfully negotiating these blocks, a wooden walkway is found. Taking this wooden walkway leads him to more blocks that have to be jumped. Having successfully ascended the blocks, he should turn rightwards. Doing this gives him access to a thin wooden walkway suspender high above ground. After successful navigation of this wooden structure, Mario arrives at an octagon-shaped wooden platform. On the center of this platform, the Power Star is found. Grabbing the Power Star ends the mission, though if Cosmic Mario makes it to the Power Star first, Mario will lose a life and the player will have to start the race over.
