The Shadow Lining is the second mission of the Cloudy Court Galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy 2. In order to play this mission, the Comet Medal must have been collected in the previous mission and when a Prankster Comet is in orbit.


The player starts on a small platform, which will spawn two more platforms next to it. As the player moves along these platforms, more platforms will appear in front of them, while the platforms behind them disappear. The player needs to collect five Star Chips along these platforms, while also avoiding Cosmic Clones. The Star Chips will form a Launch Star that will send the player to the next planet. Here, they need to avoid more Cosmic Clones while Wall Jumping up and jumping across more disappearing and reappearing platforms. The Launch Star at the end will take the player to a platform with the Power Star trapped in a crystal, which the player needs to break by spinning while still avoiding Cosmic Clones.
