Thousand coin unlimited lives (Japanese version)
During the first fight with Bowser, avoid him and collect all the coins that appear. After a considerable amount of time, you should be able to collect 1000 coins. At this point, a green "M" will appear next to the number of lives remaining. From this point on, when a life is lost, the number of lives increases. The reverse is also true - gaining lives will actually lower the number of lives remaining. The cheat will end if the number of lives reaches zero, such as when Yoshi gives Mario 100 lives after obtaining 120 stars. The North American version only allows 999 coins to be collected.
