ON/OFF Switch Research Expedition is the second course in the Story Mode of Super Mario Maker 2. It is set in the sky theme for the main area and the underground theme for the sub-area, as well as in the Super Mario Bros. style. It is posted by Doctor Gizmo, and has a difficulty rating of 1/4 stars. Completing this course on Story Mode awards Mario with 100 Coins.


The level begins with two different sets of blocks triggered by an ON/OFF Switch, along with a ? Block containing a Super Mushroom. Some Piranha Plants follow, along with another ON/OFF Switch and three Goombas. Yet another ON/OFF Switch appears alongside a Big Chain Chomp, and after Mario utilizes an ON/OFF switch to clear out some more Piranha Plants, the Checkpoint Flag appears. An ON/OFF Switch puzzle featuring a 1-Up Mushroom follows, along with another ON/OFF Switch puzzle featuring a Winged Big Piranha Plant and a 10-Coin. Mario must then enter a Warp Pipe and utilize yet another ON/OFF Switch to grab a Super Star, which he must use against a Big Piranha Plant blockade in the main area. The last ON/OFF Switch puzzle featured involves kicking a red Koopa Troopa so that it bounds against an ON/OFF Switch over and over, allowing Mario to get across a final stretch of blocks triggered by said ON/OFF Switch and reach the Goal Pole.


"Hm? Hm! Hmm... The ON/OFF Switch. No one knows how it actually works. Wireless protocols? Ancient magic? Get to the end of this course, and I'll reward you handsomely, hm?"
