Search for the Toad Brigade Captain
Search for the Toad Brigade Captain is the first mission of the Fluffy Bluff Galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy 2. This mission introduces the Cloud Flower power-up as well as the game's recurring character, The Chimp.
The player begins on the Cloud Across Valley Planet in a small field surrounded by water. Beyond the bridge is a Cloud Flower the player can use to get over a ledge and other obstacles, though the player will lose the power-up if they touch water. Using the power-up, the player can cross clouds and create some of their own to climb over a tall ledge. Afterward, the player can either Long Jump between the clouds or create their own clouds to traverse the gaps and reach the Toad Brigade member on the other side. Then by Wall Jumping up the walls in the cliff, the player can reach a Launch Star that will send them to the Water Across Sphere Planet. Here, the player needs to collect five Star Chips to form a Launch Star, while also avoiding the Cosmic Clones that appear once the player steps off the platform they landed on.
The Launch Star will take the player to the final planet, the Cloud Climb Mountain Planet. Here, the player needs to use the Cloud Flower to cross obstacles and scale the mountain, or use the Bomps as platforms as well. At the top of the first wall, the player can use a romp swing to reach the top of the large tree, where they will find the Toad Brigade Captain. He'll explain that some monkey ran off with the Power Star to the mountain nearby. Using clouds to reach the mountain peak and talking to The Chimp will have him reward the player with the Power Star.
