Fall onto the Caged Island is the fifth mission of Whomp's Fortress in Super Mario 64 and its remake, Super Mario 64 DS. Its objective is to collect a Power Star inside a cage.


The Power Star is located on one of the floating isles near the tower, which has a large cage on it. In Super Mario 64, the whole island has a large steel fence surrounding the perimeter, and in Super Mario 64 DS, the island has a small wooden fence surrounding it while the Power Star is contained inside a steel cage with only a small doorway for an opening. As the mission's name implies, the player is intended to enter the island from above, which can be accomplished by using Hoot. Hoot is located in the tree next to where the player enters the level. Once he leaves the tree, Hoot starts complaining about how he should be sleeping during the day, but then he offers to give the player a flight. After the player grabs on to Hoot, they must time their descent properly so that they land on the island and then grab the Power Star. This can also be done by using the cannon, activated by the Bob-omb Buddy, or by long-jumping from on top of the fortress.
