Talk:List of Super Mario Galaxy glitches
Is there any reference that the Yoshi Planet in Good Egg Galaxy glitch exists? Because I searched and can't find anything about this glitch. Akfamilyhome 08:19, 17 April 2011 (EDT)
- Problem solved.
Some of the glitches in this article are little dreams that are impossible to pull off. For example, the Unactivated Megaleg Glitch doesn't work because even at Luigi's jumping point, he can't reach Megaleg's Moon. Then the "Through the Beacon" glitch doesn't work, because you can't fly THROUGH it, you can fly TO it and fall. Luion 13:57, 7 November 2011 (EDT)
It is possible to reach Megaleg using the glitch, you just need to spin at the peak of the jump, also, I have only done that as Mario, so maybe Luigi does not work when attempting it. Eevee1735

Climbing up walls?
Someone forgot to (I think) put in Climbing up walls glitch?!
Another Kamella's Airship Attack Glitch?

Hey guys I think that the Invincible Koopa Troopa shell glitch doesn't only work with the red koopa troopa shell because while I was playing as Luigi in Bowser Jr's Airship Armada I found out that it worked with these other koopa troopa during the boss fight. Can you please check for the other galaxies please ( Like just grab any shell and test it ) Koopas lost shell 12:13, 9 September 2016 (EDT)
I found a glitch where if you jump to the edge of the observatory and then jump off, the bubble doesn't put you back at the edge. It puts you back at the place you were before you jumped to the edge (This is easily seen if you jump from the Terrace).

Lives not saved
I had ten lives after getting the ones from the mailtoad. I quit the game, reset, and then loaded my save file. Everything was saved, except for the amount of lives. I had four instead of ten. Josh Jepson said in his LP that he had the same problem. Stinkoman20x6 (talk) 01:37, 19 June 2017 (EDT)
- This is intentional; it happens in other games as well. LB (talk • edits • ) 01:53, 19 June 2017 (EDT)
Destroy Unactivated Megaleg?
In the Unactivated Megaleg glitch, could the player lead a Bullet Bill to Megaleg's Moon? If so, would it be able to destroy the cage surrounding the Grand Star dome? And if so, would Megaleg remain deactivated if the cage was destroyed? What about luring multiple Bills and entirely defeating Megaleg?

Double Spin Glitch
If as Ice/Fire Mario/Luigi, you jump, spin and lose your power up just after spinning, then trying to spin again, you actually are able to ! This means that your spin in that state isn't a true spin for the game, but is a brand new spin whith other physics. If anyone find out how to use this propely to gain time on a stage, PLEASE send it into the official glitch list. -LennyTheSniper
Step-in-Place / Slow Pickup Glitch
If you crouch into a bob-omb while running into it, you will pick it up fast and start stepping in place.
If you crouch into a bob-omb while running into it, but you then reset your joystick position to neutral, you will pick it up absurdly slowly.
It would be nice if these got added to the glitch list because they look amusing and are probably unintentional.

Dying after grabbing a star
Gameplay is still active for at least 1 frame after grabbing a Power Star, so if you die/fail on that frame, the star will do its "You Got a Star!" animation (and in some cases, the camera will change to its cutscene angle) but Mario/Luigi will do a death animation and you'll get the "Too Bad!" text. Unfortunately the star won't count.
This can be done in time-limited stars, as well as Ghostly Galaxy's secret star due a deathplane being on the star until you get the last key.
You can do it with Mario too, here's a proof https://twitter.com/Gastari_/status/1251937408037388297 (warning, it might be a bit quiet) 220.127.116.11 05:01, April 22, 2020 (EDT)
