Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga


Music from one place to another

Before entering a pipe, enter it with Mini-Mario. During the Pipe-Selection Screen, the music in the previous area you were just in will stay the same. When you warp to your destination, the music in the pipe will now be the BGM until you leave the area/go into pipe while not Mini-Mario, etc.

Permanent Pepper Effect!

Red and Green Peppers normally will temporarily boost your Power or Defense, respective. (The boost is x1.5 on the international version and x1.25 in Japan's, though this glitch is not in the Japanese version.) If someone under a Pepper's effects is KOed and then revived by a 1-Up item in the same battle the effect will remain for the remainder of the fight.

Thunder Bros. Enemy Defense Glitch

Luigi's Bros. Attack "Thunder Bros." normally lowers the foe's DEF stat if executed correctly. However, the amount lowered is strangely correlated to the button presses you do correctly during the attack. Most notably: miss all but the first B Button press and your opponent's DEF goes to zero!

Unmovable Mario

Turn Luigi into a surfboard and surf to the coast on the east side of Beanbean Castle Town.
Surf in and land on the shore.
While Mario is dismounting the surfboard, hit a Bob-omb to start a battle.
When the battle is over, Mario will be frozen in the air, but the pause screen will still be accessible.

Easter Eggs

Game references in the Yoshi theater!

In the lobby of the Yoshi theater, there are four posters on the wall referring to Nintendo video games:

3. M&L--referring, of course, to this game (more specifically to the game's originally intended title, "Mario & Luigi")

See Princess Peach's Castle

Go to the summet on HooHoo Mountain, walk to the top right of the summet until you get to the edge. There should be a slant in the summet shape (like an octogon) and two stone sharp-like rocks, walk up to the top one and look underneath the B button icon, you should see Princess Peach's Castle from Super Mario 64.

Discount on Taking Pictures!

In the Beanbean Castle area, there is a photographer that will take pictures for your passports for 100 coins. He will ask you to pay 100 coins. Say "No", and he will offer to take them for 50 coins.

Extra damage on Fire Bros

During the normal version of the attack "Fire Bros.", try abd count how many fireballs Mario conjures up. Smack the fire back, but be sure to MISS the action command on the last one. You'll do more damage in the last part than normal. You'll want to be pretty precise here, because going too early or late will hinder the total damage done.

Guess the real Cackletta

When Cackletta divides into 3, use any item, but don't attack. When the Cacklettas attack, you will see one use the left arm only, and right arm, and both arms. Attack the one that uses both arms.

Infinate Hoo, Woo, and Chuckle beans and status.

There is an Island Surfing game somewhere near Oho Oasis. After getting 1st prize (Casual Coral), you can fulfill the same criteria and get 2 Hoo, Woo, and Chuckle beans each time! By doing this, you can gain infinite beans and, possibly, infinite stats from blending these infinite beans.

Enemy/Boss Tips

Shroom Force Abuse

The Mush Badges available from the Little Fungitown equipment shop have the ability Shroom Force. This applies a flat damage bonus to each of your attacks depending on how many of each regular, Super, Ultra, and Max Mushroom you have. (This is very roughly 0.2 per each in the international release and roughly 0.15 per each in the Japanese version. A maxed stock of each in the international release applies a 93 damage boost, and 48 in the Japanese version.)

This boost applies to every single attack. Most notably, this includes Mario's Chopper Bros. Attack. Typically after about a dozen hits when performed successfully, you only do 1 HP of damaged per hit. However, Shroom Force applies the flat bonus to even those hits; this means you could easily hit a dozen or more times each for almost 50 or 100 HP of damage! This trivializes almost all battles in the game; stomping on enemies to start battles almost always results in killing them all if you have enough Mushrooms and almost all bosses can be beaten with 1-2 uses of Chopper Bros.
