Switch Star of the Bay is the sixth mission of Jolly Roger Bay in Super Mario 64 DS. The mission's goal is to collect a Power Star activated by a Star Switch. This mission cannot be completed until Luigi has been freed.


The Power Star is located behind a steel gate in the same cave that Treasure in the Ocean Cave takes place in. It is activated by a nearby Star Switch. The Power Star can be accessed only if Luigi uses a Power Flower, which turns him partially invisible and lets him walk straight through the bars. A red block containing a Power Flower is present at the cave's entrance. After grabbing the flower, Luigi must then activate the Star Switch and run to the cage before either the Power Flower ability wears off or the Power Star disappears. If the Power Star vanishes after Luigi has entered the cage but before he grabs it, there is another red block containing a Power Flower inside the cage. If Luigi makes it into the cage while the Power Star is still present, he is free to grab it.
