Purple Coins in the Desert is the fifth mission of the Dusty Dune Galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy. Until its completion, this mission can only be done while a Purple Comet is in orbit. Unlike many other Purple Coin missions, it does not have a time limit.


This mission takes place solely on the Maze Planet. The player has to collect all one hundred Purple Coins, and to do so, the player has to use the Tweesters, Thwomps, and other moving platforms in the area, as well as moving between the two sides of the planet. Once all of the Purple Coins are collected, the Power Star will appear near the rising platform on the dark-colored side of the planet.
