Button Mashers: Easy win

Rain Of Fire: Avoid the flames
Run up to Bowser. Keep running until the CPU loses. Note: This does not always happens.

Shy Guy Showdown
When Shy Guy holds up a sign, quickly pause game play to see what he is holding up. When this is done correctly, you will win.

Super Duel: Easy points
You will get a point for each mini-game you play in super duel mode. Play in party mode and have a game for 50 turns. Make all characters CPU controlled and leave. Let the CPU play and they will get points without you doing anything. You will get 50 points to spend in super duel mode.

Go to mini-game mode and select free play. Then, go to the categories you need points in and play any game desired. For every mini-game you play you will earn one point in that category. You can do this as many times as needed.

Super Duel: Points for your vehicle
The more mini games you play in any kind of mode besides free play, the more points you will get towards the type of any games you win. Note: Battle points are the hardest to get.

Super Duel: Final two weapons
Buy all parts for your car in Super Duel mode to unlock the last two weapons. They are Bowser Punch and Ba Bomb Wall. They each cost 30 battle points.

Super Duel: Resultive battle weapon
Buy Bowser Breath and the fastest thing you can see (choo-choo, engine, body, and wheels recommended). Put them on a vehicle and it will be strong, fast, and effective.

Ice Hockey, Beach Volleyball, Card party
At the choose your mode screen, go to Malmar the star with the bow on her head then select what you want to play. Note: In Beach Volleyball, you can choose your ball and how many pints you need to win.

Unlock mini-games easily
Enter party mode and once on the board, press Start then press (A). Go to "Controller", then press (A) again. Press (A) to turn your character into CPU control. Press (A) again to change your difficulty setting and the other CPUs.

Defeating Bowser
Use the following trick to defeat Bowser at end of story mode. Bowser starts by sending lots of fire-breathing Koopas after you. To defeat them, jump on their heads. However, make sure that they are not about to breathe fire or you will lose a heart point. This is followed by three fire rings that can expand, contract, or spin in any variety, and you must jump over them. After that, Bowser breaks out of the screen and begins to attack you by jumping on you, running into you, or breathing a lot of fire. You can avoid all those attacks by running around him in circles, but do not get too close or his spikes will hurt you. Notice the blocks that he jumps on will start to break; after he jumps on the same one three times, he falls through. Finally, he drinks a potion to make him huge. The red fireballs he throws out of his right paw can be picked up once they cool off. However, if you wait to pick them up after he starts to shoot fire, they will be reactivated and you can pick them up and throw them at him by pressing (B) button, by jumping and throwing on the little circle in front of the ledge near his nose. Do this five times, and you will succeed.

Mini-game points
For every mini-game that you play, you can gain 1 point. The categories played in are 4-player, 3-vs-1, 2-vs-2, and battle.
