Melty Monster Galaxy
This galaxy is completely covered in lava, with a magma tide that rises and falls every so often. The main obstacle here is the magma and its tide.

This galaxy is a redesigned Whomp's Fortress from Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS.

Although the course is generally identical, a few minor changes have been made.

Battle Belt Galaxy
The galaxy is unique in that in order for Mario or Luigi to advance, he will need to defeat every enemy on a planet. The enemies start easily with foes such as Goombas, Urchins, Li'l Cinders, and Crabbers. However, the planets will get progressively more complex with enemies like Jack O'Goombas, Boos, Li'l Brrs, and Undergrunts.

The power-ups found here are the Cloud Flower, Blimp Fruit, Spin Drill, and Dash Pepper. The galaxy has many obstacles such as lava and electricity. Common enemies here include Magikoopas, Banzai Bills, Hammer Bros., Boomerang Bros., and Magmaarghs. Lumas are also found here, often cheering Mario on.
