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 rails that are found across the planet that Mario has to avoid. Upon successfully activating all Flipswitch Panels found on the planet, the moving platforms stop moving, the electrical barriers disappear, and the Power Star of the mission appears above the lone Spring Vault found on the planet's upper face. To collect the Power Star, Mario must jump on top of the Spring Vault that launches him into the Power Star.
