Super Mario 64 Cheats

  • Unlimited Lives Easy

    When you first get about 3 stars you can go to the Ice Mountain level. When you first start you see a house jump on top of it and go down the chimney. When you first get in center your camera and go straight forward to the penguin and jump over him. After that slide down the slide and you will come to a big sheet of ice wall. You will see coins following a row follow the coins and go down the secret slope to get 2 extra lives.
    WAIT THAT'S NOT IT!!! After Mario (or character) hits his head and he is on the 2nd ledge go to the right and around the corner and hit the box to get a total of 3 lives.
    Repeat to get more lives.

  • 99 Lives

    First you have to lower th water outside of the castle. Then you go to the level where you are invisible. From there look down at the platforms, but stay a safe distance away from the black dot. There's like 5-8. Try to go onto the platforms with lives. It should take you a while because it's pretty much about 10-30 minutes. Once you have collected all of the lives just jump off the edge you won't lose any lives. Continue this process about 20 times and then you will have 100 lives.

    First enter the castle and walk up the stairs, go through the door with a keyhole on it. Climb up the stairs. Once you are on the second story, jump into the portrait with the mountain, waterfall and mushrooms on it (stage number 12). Once you are there run by the goombas and you see a trench/cliff, run over by hitting b then a. repeat for second cliff. Run along the ledge untill you get to the monty moles. Run by those and you will see bomb-ombs, run by those too. Then you will reach a terrace with a giant purple bomb-omb, run by this along a thin bridge with coins on it (Be very careful running by this, if it grabs you it will likely throw you off the stage). Once you have cleared the bridge you will jump up one ledge attached to the other. One on top of these there is a monkey that follows you. Pick him up and he will talk to you. As soon as you put him down he will steal your hat. Don't worry you can always catch him again to get your hat back. Also, you can get your hat back by talking to a toad that wears your hat in the castle.

  • White Rabbits' Secret Star

    Occasionally, in places where you would normally see a colored rabbit, there will be a glowing white rabbit. I can't tell you where they are because they shift around lots, but they are always replacing a normal rabbit. There are 8 of them in total, and if you get all 8, they will give you a key to the 4th locked door in the room where you can switch characters (the key is for the door without a letter on it). Inside the door is one of the Castle's Secret Power Stars. Note: as with the character doors, you won't actually see the room behind the door, but your character will come out holding a Star. If you go into the room again, you will hear some Boos laughing, and your character will come out and say something. Since different characters have different rabbits, use all of the characters to find rabbits. For me, the first and last rabbits were found by Yoshi in the front lawn, and all the rest were found by Mario in the basement.

  • How to Beat Final Bowser

    Final Bowser as you can guess is super hard. First grab his tail ASAP if he breathes out a bunch of flames don't grab it until it clears. When you have his tail you probaly won't hit the bomb. throw him to the nearest edge. Now grab his tail again when spinning slow down until you can actually aim then fire he won't go that far but it should be enough to hit if you're close enough. When you go into the star shaped arena just throw him and hope it hits. I know this strategy isn't that good but if you do it it should work. Then you win and at the end you hear Mario's voice saying "Thank you for playing my game" that plus the fun makes all of it worth it.

  • Refill Health

    You can regain health by swimming in a deep place. Like when you turn the DS on and play go under the bridge (if there is still water and swim) this only works if you lost health. After you go under water come up for air and you would have regained health.

    Notice that there is a cannon with a cage over it in the castle's front yard and you don't know how to open it? well, Original Super Mario 64 Veterans will probably know after all 150 stars are collected, the cage will be open. when it is, you may shoot yourself up onto the castle roof. There is 3 free lives up there and a box to fly, get fire breath, turn invisible, or turn metal (depending on the character you are). Sorry to say, there is no one up on top with 100 lives for you unlike the original in which Yoshi is up there waiting for you to give you 100 lives and give you thanks from the Super Mario 64 team.

  • Staircase Weirdness

    This one is surely a glitch. Take Mario to the second story (up from the foyer in the main part of the castle). Enter the door with the big pudgy star on it. Take about three or four steps, and face the wall on the left. Face the wall and jump two times. The second time Mario will slip through the underside of the staircase and appear on the stairs above.

  • Penguin Ride

    In Course 10, Snowman's Land, another cool trick for Mario is his new way to cross the ice bridge. Use the cannon to launch up to the tree, then get to the face of the giant snowman. Before crossing the ice bridge by using the penguin's help (walking at his side), try jumping on his head instead.

    What will happen is that Mario will end up sitting on the penguin's head, and will avoid the strong gust of wind that normally pushes him off.

Then do a long jump to the other building and get the other red coin.
