Flash Black Galaxy is a galaxy appearing in the game Super Mario Galaxy 2. Located in World 6, the galaxy takes place in a large mansion. However, everything is pitch black except for the occasional second of lightning, which shows the area. In addition, many gaps are in the ground. Yoshi is found here and the level makes extensive use of the Blimp Fruit. Common enemies and obstacles here include Mines, Jack O'Goombas, and Flaptacks.


NOTE: Unless otherwise noted, all names are unofficial.

Starting Planet[edit]

The starting planet is a dark, huge and mazy tower. To get to its top, Mario must use Blimp Yoshi and avoid the Mines and the other enemies. The Launch Star is located at the top right of the tower. The Comet Medal is found on this planet as well. Enemies here include Jack O'Goombas and Paragoombas.

Maze Walkway Planet[edit]

This planet is a dark maze with Octoboos lurking on it. Mario must walk carefully to avoid falling in space. There are five Silver Stars in this planet, and several Flaptacks too. This planet is similar to the last planet in Matter Splatter Galaxy in the first Super Mario Galaxy.

  • The galaxy's name "Flash Black" is a pun on "flashback" and "black", since most of the time the galaxy is black to the point where it is invisible to the eye until it flashes like a camera.
  • If the players go on the Maze Planet in any of the missions and looks at the back of the maze, they will see an enormous hollow well-like structure.
  • The exterior design of the starting planet resembles the Ghostly Galaxy of the first game.
  • The player can use the Infinite Flutter Jump glitch to land on the roof of the Mansion Planet in this galaxy.
