Storming the Sky Fleet
The player begins on the Starting Planet, but this time around it is infested with Mini Wanwan. Traveling to the darker side of the planet via the green warp pipe, the player must use the rubbery bulbs strewn around to open up the chests and find a Rainbow Star. The player must then run around and destroy all of the Mini Wanwan on this side of the planet (it is possible to destroy the Mini Wanwan just by using the rubbery bulbs) to find the key to free a captured Luma. The Luma will reward the player for freeing him by transforming into a Launch Star to the Sky Fleet Ship.
The Sky Fleet Ship has multiple Banzai Bills for the player to avoid before he can get to a hole which leads inside the ship. To the player's advantage, however, there is another Rainbow Star for them to use so they can destroy the Banzai Bills. They need to find a hatch which leads inside the Sky Fleet Ship to proceed.
On the inside, there are numerous Amps and moving platforms. A Checkpoint Flag is just near the entrance to the inside. A 1-Up Mushroom is just above the flag. There is an area full of Star Bits where the player must fall to continue the area. There is also a Teleporter and another 1-Up Mushroom in an area which can only be reached by crawling through the tiny gap. The player must travel to the other side of the moving platforms and take the Launch Star, which is in mid air and surrounded by Amps, to the Flipswitch Fleet Planet.
There is a Banzai Bill launcher on this planet, so the player must look out for the Banzai Bills. If the player manages to get on top of the Banzai Bill launcher, they will find a small bunch of Star Bits to collect. After the player has pressed all the switches on the Flipswitch Fleet Planet, another section appears where Mario has to press the Flipswitch Panels. However, there is a slight problem; this time the player will be chased by Cosmic Clones, meaning they shouldn't go back to a Flipswitch Panel they've already walked over.
After pressing all the switches, the clones will disappear into Star Bits and a Launch Star will appear to take the player to the Grass Fleet Planet. The Second Fleet Ship has three Banzai Bills blasting all around and a Power Star can be found in a cage. The player must travel to the end of the walkway, avoiding the Banzai Bills that case them, and reach the end of the planet which has a pole, two Piranha Plants and one Prickly Piranha Plant. Defeating the Prickly Piranha will yield a key which frees the Power Star and allows the player to go back, still avoiding the Banzai Bills, and get the star.
