“Wow! Can ya believe it?! This must be that strange, legendary world we've been hearing rumors about! There are even more Power Stars around here! So! Let's go get 'em, Captain!”
Lubba, Super Mario Galaxy 2

World S: Here We Go!, also known as Special World[1], is the seventh and last world featured in Super Mario Galaxy 2. It is located high in the sky of an unknown planet with colorful star-shaped islands, and has two rainbows in the background. This world is shaped like an "S", hinting at its name, and has no forked directions. It holds a total of seven galaxies, the last of which, the Grandmaster Galaxy, can only be accessed by collecting all 120 Power Stars as well as all 120 Green Stars. It is unlocked after the player defeats Bowser for the first time. This world's appearance is hinted at by a Bob-omb Buddy brought back from the Throwback Galaxy, who asks about the "strange, legendary world" in a manner similar to Lubba's.

Mario Squared Galaxy
This galaxy takes place on an 8-bit Mario, which also appeared as a planet in the Toy Time Galaxy from the first game. However, the spinning platforms have been replaced with Flipswitch Panels. An 8-bit Luigi appears on the opposite site and serves as a Purple Coin level.

Twisty Trials Galaxy
This galaxy is heavily based on the Episode 4 mission The Secret of Ricco Tower from Ricco Harbor in Super Mario Sunshine. The only major changes are that there is now a single Cloud Flower in the first mission, Yoshi in the second, and some of the spinning logs are larger.

Stone Cyclone Galaxy.png
Stone Cyclone Galaxy
This galaxy consists of only one planet, which is essentially a replica of the Cyclone Stone from the Beach Bowl Galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy. Some differences include the addition of Octoombas, the removal of the last Thwomp, and the addition of multiple Blue Switches at different intervals around the planet.

FlipOutGalaxy.png
Flip-Out Galaxy
This the final galaxy unlocked before the player obtains 240 Power Stars. The galaxy uses the same concept as the Flip-Swap Galaxy from World 1, except that instead of controlling Reversible Platforms, the player controls reversible walls. In this regard, it combines the mechanics of the Flip-Swap Galaxy with Wall Jumping.

Grandmaster Galaxy.png
Grandmaster Galaxy
This galaxy is analogous to the Grand Finale Galaxy from Super Mario Galaxy because the player must collect all 240 Power Stars and Green Stars to unlock it. This is the only Galaxy where Green Stars do not appear because the player has to collect all of the Green Stars in the game in order to unlock this galaxy.
