Sweet Mystery Galaxy is a galaxy of World 4 in the game Super Mario Galaxy 2. Its level consists of different types of food and sweets, such as ice cream, pancakes, lollipops, candy canes, pretzels and donuts. Most of the platforms here are invisible and can only be revealed using Bulb Yoshi. Common enemies here include Smeeches and Choppahs. The galaxy entirely revolves around the use of Bulb Berry.

Sweet Mystery Planet[edit]

This planet is entirely composed of food-like platforms. There are few enemies in this galaxy, and a twisty Matter Splatter path that can only be revealed with the use of the Bulb Berry. The Comet Medal is found on an invisible platform to the right after passing the first curved platform. There are a few moving platforms and some flowers can be found in one area. To reveal the Launch Star that leads to the next planet, the player must turn all the Flipswitch Panels yellow. This is the starting planet for all of the missions.

Present Planet[edit]

When the player uses the Launch Star from the first planet, they'll end up on the final planet in the galaxy. At first, the player will see this planet shaped like a present, but as they approach it, the gift unwraps and reveals a cake. When the player lands on it, the cake will disappear. The only way to see it again is to use the Bulb Berry. Choppahs can be encountered here. The Power Star is at the top of the cake.

Prima Official Game Guide description[edit]

  • "Indulge your sweet tooth in this galaxy made of cookies and cakes. But not every delicious delight is out in the open. Yoshi must snack on Bulb Berries to make every platform visible. Without revealing a safe route through this galaxy, you'll never enjoy a dessert of Power Stars."

  • Bulb Yoshi has an interesting effect on many of the planetoids in this galaxy: when the player gets near them, they will be able to see through their outsides and view the desserts inside them.
  • A strange sound effect often echoes in the background of the music in this galaxy, and it sounds similar to the sound it makes when the player first grabs a Pull Star using the Star Pointer.
