King Kaliente's Battle Fleet
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
The player lands on the starting planet, similar to the first two missions. The player can reach the Launch Star on the house with a Triple Jump or through an orange Warp Pipe on the underside of the planet. The Warp Pipe leads to a boxed room that contains coins embedded in the ground and a ? Coin that activates some notes. The Warp Pipe on top of this room takes the player to the Launch Star, which leads him to the Tropic Planets, which are littered with thorny flowers. A Purple Toad is inside a Crystal. If the player frees him by breaking it, he thanks the player and advises them that the flowers are weak to coconuts, so the player must spin the coconuts. The largest thorny flower contains a Sling Star, so the player must destroy the thorny flower with a coconut to use the Sling Star. The next tropic planet after the Sling Star has a Big Pokey. Once the player defeats it with coconuts, a Launch Star appears, and the player can use it.
The player lands on top of the Sling Star of the Asteroid Planet. They can choose not to use it and instead walk to the bottom and use a Warp Pipe. Through the Warp Pipe, the player is inside a spherical area with a ? Coin and some Goombas. The ? Coin triggers a Rainbow Star to appear, allowing the player to defeat the Goombas and the Chomps encircling the Asteroid Planet. Once the player uses the Sling Star, they can proceed to the underside of the Chomp Saucer Planet. It has many electrical walls and some Goombas. On the top side of this planet, cannons shoot Bullet Bills and Chomps, Burners shoot fire, and Electrogoombas patrol on the platforms.
A Crystal at the top of the formation contains a Launch Star that launches the player onto an airship. Two Octopuses will shoot coconuts or fireballs at the player from an adjacent airship. The player can find a green Toad trapped in a Crystal. Once the green Toad is freed, he suggests that the player spins to rebound these coconuts to defeat them. Once the Octopuses are defeated, the bridge between the two ships lowers. Electrogoombas are located on the other side of the Airship. One crate contains a Life Mushroom, which expands the player's health from three wedges to six wedges. The Launch Star inside a Crystal on the end of this airship takes the player to the bottom of the Octo Magma Planet, which contains embedded coins. The Luma nearby warns the player of an upcoming boss fight. The top of the planet contains a magma pit and several Crystals containing Star Bits.
The player confronts King Kaliente. King Kaliente shoots three fireballs at a time and then shoots one coconut. The player can hit this coconut to inflict a hit and release Star Bits. If the player eventually hits another coconut, King Kaliente attempts to rebound it, so the player must hit the coconut again to inflict another hit. This hit, however, knocks King Kaliente's crown off, enraging him. King Kaliente then proceeds to throw several blue Lava Bubbles. King Kaliente also rebounds the coconut twice. Once the player inflicts a third hit, however, they defeat King Kaliente, and a Power Star is released.
