The title of this article is conjectural; an official name for the article's subject has not been found, so it has been given a fitting title by the editors.

Mario riding on the Sand Sailer

The Sand Sailer is a bird-shaped raft that appears in Super Mario Galaxy 2. It only appears in Slipsand Galaxy, in the level Sailing the Sandy Seas. This raft is made of brick that disappears when it is hit by cacti and enemy attacks, such as a Magikoopa's beams or Silver Chomps. However, they reappear after some seconds. Within the mission, Mario must ride the Sand Sailer to avoid falling into the deadly quicksand that makes up the surface of its planet until he reaches a Power Star.


  • The Sand Sailer resembles the Sand Bird in Super Mario Sunshine, as both are made out of Sand Blocks that are made to resemble birds. This is made even more apparent by the buildings in the background of the starting planet, which look similar to the tower the Sand Bird circles.
