Switch Star of the Fortress is the seventh and final mission of Whomp's Fortress, exclusive to Super Mario 64 DS. Its objective is to use a Star Switch to collect a Power Star.


The Star Switch is on the path around the fortress's back, hidden under a Brick between two pillars. After the player hits the switch, the Power Star appears inside a Star Sphere at the end of the path, and the player must run to the other side of the fortress in a short amount of time to collect it. If the time runs out, the Star disappears, and the switch must be pressed again to make the Power Star reappear.
