Upon entering stage, Princess Peach is already in her Detective Peach transformation. The Junior Detective gets the attention of Detective Peach, who has arrived five minutes earlier. He informs Peach about a possible subject who walks by the street every day. The two detectives then sit on the nearby bench where they watch for the suspect. Some Theets walk by, as well as a Criminal, who is indeed the suspect. Detective Peach and the Junior Detective then follow him to see what he is doing. Detective Peach must hide whenever the criminal turns around, because if he sees her, Peach takes one heart of damage. After following the criminal enough, he sprints off, dropping a piece of paper on the ground.

Upon observing the paper, it reads that the "you-know-what will be ready soon", and that "(the criminal) should meet at the hideout". Using clues from a puddle and footsteps, the detectives find a passage between buildings leading to another street. The criminal is seen there, where Peach and the Junior Detective stealthily follow him again. After following him some more, he sprints off again. The end of the street has three apartments with designs above their entrances: the left has a flower relief, the middle has a leaf, and the right has a sprout. A piece of paper found before the apartments provides information that "(they're) ready to finish the you-know-what, and it's time for (them) to meet at the hideout". The middle apartment is the entrance to the criminals' hideout is the middle apartment, as nearby Theets claim they live in the other apartments. The two detectives then enter the hideout.

Inside the hideout, Detective Peach and the Junior Detective overhear the plans of the three criminals; they are going to use a bomb to blow up something. The Junior Detective reacts in shock upon hearing this, giving away the detectives. Panicked that they are found out, the criminals escape through a window and start their plan. Detective Peach and the Junior Detective then search the hideout to find out where the criminals plan to use the bomb. Using clues around the hideout, it is revealed that they plan to use the bomb to blow up the clock tower. With this new information, the detectives head for the clock tower and the Junior Detective calls the police.

At the entrance to the clock tower, the detectives and the police enter the building. When they enter, they see the three criminals using a lift to climb higher. The group must use the lift to follow them, but they need the correct key to operate it. The "6" key must be used, but the key is nowhere to be seen. The correct key is rotated 180° to look like a "9". Using the lift, the detectives and the Police Chief reach higher up in the clock tower.

The three then reach to the face of the clock tower, where they find a criminal blocking the way. The police then arrive and tie him up. This criminal does not have the bomb, and he says that they will not find it on the top floor of the clock tower. The two detectives then proceed higher in the clock tower. They enter a room where a lift is not activated. Three pieces of a gear are needed to make this lift operate. These gear pieces are found between pipes, on a gear, and inside a box. After activating the lift, Detective Peach and the Junior Detective travel higher to another room with a lift, also deactivated. A key is needed to activate this lift. There are two vents that lead to the face of the clock tower, where the key is. Only one vent can be open though, as the machinery to open them is missing a gear. There is one gear that can be swapped between the two sets of gears, which will allow the other vent door to open. The right vent must be open, because that is the side where the key is. After obtaining the key, the detectives can use the lift to reach the top of the clock tower.

Using footprints on the ground, Detective Peach discovers that the bomb is inside the bell of the clock tower. After revealing the bomb, the two detectives quickly try to throw the bomb out the window before it explodes. The Junior Detective initially has the bomb, but he trips and drops it, so Detective Peach throws it out the window instead, where it explodes and does no harm. The stage is then complete.

Stella ribbon[edit]

Detective Ribbon: To the far right of the first section of the stage, there are three paintings. One of these paintings is created by Mira Culous, who is standing in disguise behind the rightmost painting. The Ribboner is close to these paintings, and he is confused as to which painting is the real one. The leftmost painting (the one of Detective Sparkla) is the correct painting, as the middle one is created by a student of the arts and the rightmost painting is created by someone who "an artist of no importance" claimed had stole his name. After Detective Peach identifies the real painting, the Ribboner becomes happy, thanks Detective Peach and awards her the ribbon.

  • Help request: "I love everything Mira Culous paints, but I haven't the foggiest which of these is the real deal. Please find the real painting for me!"
  • Rescue message: "I knew you could solve the mystery, Detective. Your powers of deduction are remarkable! What's that? I can have the painting? Well! Then please take this with my thanks. Thank you!"
