Shiverburn Galaxy is a galaxy appearing in the game Super Mario Galaxy 2. It is similar to the Freezeflame Galaxy from Super Mario Galaxy, as it revolves around the elements of fire and ice. Octoombas and Elite Octoombas are common enemies here. This galaxy uses the same music that is used in the Freezeflame Galaxy.


NOTE: Unless otherwise noted, all names are unofficial.

Starting Planet[edit]

Mario on the Starting Planet.

The planet is completely covered in lava and is U-shaped. A volcano is in the middle of the planet, which features platforms that slowly sink in the lava if the player stands on them. A moving platform takes the player to a Cloud Flower, which the player can use to get to the other Cloud Flower. Many Octoombas and Elite Octoombas try to hurt the player. Spiked Sentry Beams try to electrocute the player by shooting out an electric ring around it. There is a switch in the middle of a platform that instantly freezes the lava so the player can walk on the planet. Near the end of the planet, the player can either take the Launch Star to the Lava Planet or the pipe behind it to the Underground Ice Rink.

Underground Ice Rink[edit]

This area is only accessed during The Chimp's Ultimate Skating Challenge mission. It looks like the exact same ice rink from the Freezy Flake Galaxy's mission. There are 9 holes in the ground and The Chimp challenges Mario to get 600 points by defeating Gummits.

Lava Sphere Planet[edit]

Mario flying towards the Lava Planet.

The planet is basically one huge ball of magma. There are rock platforms that float around in a circular manner to help the player get across. Many Octoombas are on the platforms, though. If the player stays on the platforms for too long, they will be dragged into the lava. After the first half of the planet, there is an area with three coconuts, two Octoombas and a treasure chest. The player can open the chest with a coconut for a 1-Up Mushroom. The second half is generally the same as the first half except that there are now meteors falling down. There is another 1-Up Mushroom found at the end. The Launch Star will take the player to the Hot and Cold Planet. The Comet Medal is also near the Launch Star.

Hot and Cold Planet[edit]

Mario on the Hot and Cold Planet.

The planet is a fusion of both ice and magma. When the player first lands, they should notice a long road covered in ice. However, meteors bombard the path and create molten fire puddles that will burn the player if they touch it. The player will need to navigate around the puddles while avoiding getting burnt, falling off, or being hit by the Elite Octoombas. At the end of the path, the player will need to defeat five Octopuses in order to proceed. At then next part, ice will drop from the sky and form a temporary path to the Launch Star. The player should quickly skate on this to Prince Pikante's Planet.

Prince Pikante's Planet[edit]

Mario heading towards the planet to fight Prince Pikante.

This is a generally small planet. It is completely covered in ice and is closely shaped like a peanut. There is a fence around it so the player will not fall off. Prince Pikante is fought on this planet. This area is also used as the sole planet for the Octo-Army Icy Rainbow Romp, where many different Octoombas appear. But in this mission, there is no fence.



Prince Pikante's Peppery Mood[edit]

The player lands on a sinking platform on the Starting Planet. The player should jump on a moving platform while trying not to fall into the lava or get hit by an Octoomba's rock. When the platform is activated after the player lands on it, it starts to move towards a Cloud Flower. Once the player becomes Cloud Mario/Luigi, the switch is visible in the distance. Ground Pounding the switch freezes the lava and allows the player to skate on it. On the way to the Launch Star, there are Elite Octoombas and Spiked Sentry Beams. At the Lava Planet, the player should traverse circling platforms. As the player progresses, the platforms get smaller. The Launch Star takes the player to the Icy Hot Planet. The player needs to skate along the path while avoiding meteors and Elite Ocotoombas. The player can get a Life Mushroom by breaking open the Crystal. The player then needs to defeat five Octopuses and 3 Elite Octoombas to progress. In the next part, the player needs to wait for the ice crystals to make safe platforms over lava in order to progress.

The Launch Star should take the player to a Starshroom with a Midway Point and Lumalee. The Launch Star on the Starshroom takes the player to Prince Pikante. The player needs to bash him with three coconuts. After Pikante's defeat, the Power Star appears and the player receives the star.

Octo-Army Icy Rainbow Romp[edit]

Mario defeating Octoombas and Octoguys with a Rainbow Star.

The Romp Comet must be in orbit in order to select this mission. The player has 50 seconds to defeat 25 Octoombas and five Octoguys on Prince Pikante's Planet using the Rainbow Star. There are no fences on the planet, so the player should be careful not to get too close to the edge. Skating is needed to complete this within the time limit.

The Chimp's Ultimate Skating Challenge[edit]

Mario defeats some Gummits.

Players should enter the Warp Pipe in the Starting Planet behind the Launch Star to be transported to the Underground Ice Rink. Inside here, The Chimp will challenge players to defeat Gummits for points. The objective is exactly the same as the last one except they have to score 600 points by hitting green and gold Gummits and avoiding the purple spiked ones. Players only have forty seconds to achieve the goal. If a score of 600 or above is achieved, the Power Star appears.

Green Star 1[edit]

Green Star 3[edit]

Luigi below the third Green Star.

Players will need to have the Cloud Flower for this Green Power Star. Players will need to make their way with the Cloud Flower to the Hot and Cold Planet. They should notice a cloud with a 1-Up Mushroom on it. Players will need to create at least one cloud to get the Green Star located directly above it. If players don't have at least one cloud or don't have the Cloud Mario/Luigi power-up, the Green Star cannot be obtained.

"Tree" Easter Egg[edit]

Shiverburn Galaxy Figures Close-Up.PNG

Three mysterious figures appear in the background of the galaxy. The three figures also appear in the background of the Pull Star Planet in Grandmaster Galaxy.

If the player uses first-person view and looks up at the glacier cliffs in the scenery, three figures can be seen.

In the game's files, they are separate from the galaxy's background textures, and the filename of the graphics that depict them is "HellValleySkyTree". "BeyondHellValley" is the galaxy's filename and it is presumed that "Sky" refers to this part of background and "Tree" refers to the odd looking things.[1]

A similar figure can be seen in the near background near the flagpole if the player waits long enough at the end of World 4-4 in Super Mario 3D Land.

The view of the figures in game (achieved by zooming in).
