The location of the Red Coins in Whomp's Fortress's Red Coins on the Floating Isle mission in Super Mario 64 DS
A Bob-omb Buddy shows Mario the location of every Red Coin in Super Mario 64 DS.

A Bob-omb Buddy at the start of the mission tells the player the location of each Red Coin. In Super Mario 64, several of the coins are found on the main path to the top of the fortress: One of the coins is found above the middle Moving Bar, one is located above the second Thwomp, one is behind the second sleeping Piranha Plant, one is along a narrow ledge next to the collapsing bridge, one is along the rotating bridge between the regular coins, and one is on the slope directly below the rotating bridge. The remaining two coins are located on a series of floating platforms at the top of the fortress. They can be reached by knocking over a nearby wooden plank. Hoot can also be used to get to the floating platforms. Once every Red Coin has been collected, the Power Star appears at the fortress's base. In Super Mario 64 DS, one of the Red Coins' locations is changed: The Red Coin located on the slope is replaced by a Red Coin found along a new path that goes around the fortress's rear.
