Origin of Kolorado's Star Pieces[edit]

Kolorado mentions the origin of the Star Piece he gives to Mario and Parakarry for delivering his letter. However, there are several versions of the story, depending on where the letter is delivered. In the first half of the game it is from Dry Dry Desert:

  • (Dry Dry Desert) "I came across it while I was immersed in the dig around here."
  • (Toad Town dock) "I came across it while I was researching my latest project in Dry Dry Desert."

In the second half it is from Jade Jungle:

  • (Lavalava Island) "I came across it while I was wandering about the jungle researching things."
  • (Pleasant Path) "I came upon it during my incredibly important research on Lavalava Island."
  • (Koopa Village) "I found it on scenic Lavalava Island."

For the Star Piece he gives for the Artifact, Kolorado only mentions the origin when it is given at the dock in Toad Town: "I found it in Dry Dry Desert. I have no use for it."
