Painting the Planet Yellow
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
Painting the Planet Yellow is the sole mission of Flipswitch Galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy. The main goal of this mission is for Mario (or Luigi) to activate all Flipswitch Panels on the Starting Planet.
Mario initially lands on the Starting Planet, automatically activating one Flipswitch. Mario then has to maneuver around the planet on its different faces to activate all remaining Flipswitch Panels. There are moving platforms with spiky edges on the Starting Planet that Mario can use to get across gaps. There are also a couple of moving Electric Fences that are found across the planet that Mario has to avoid. Upon successfully activating all Flipswitch Planets found on the planet, the moving platforms stop moving, the electrical barriers disappear, and the Power Star of the mission appears above the lone Sentry Beam found on the planet's upper face. To collect the Power Star, Mario must Jump on top of the Sentry Beam that launches him into the Power Star.
