Super Mario Galaxy - 120 Stars

Nov 21, 2007

You're undoubtedly one of the millions who're trying to collect all 120 stars in Mario Galaxy, and, just for you, we've spent hours collecting them all in one handy place. There's a video for each galaxy, each boss and all of the Luma galaxies that litter the hub area. We're assuming you can get the first Grand Star on your own.

For your own reference, there are six kinds of stars:

Power Stars (the most abundant)
Grand Stars (from boss battles)
Prankster Comets (traveling the universe, altering other galaxies' stars)
Purple Comets (100 coin challenges, the last clip in each video)
Hidden Stars (alternate paths in specific areas)
Green Stars (three highly elusive stars that unlock three Trial Galaxies)

You won't be able to get everything until after you beat the game, so don't worry about incomplete levels until the very end. To find stars in our videos, simply scroll to the time code listed next to the star's name. Once you do have them all, there might be something else to shoot for after the credits roll...

    been there, done that! I am the gamer that finds EVERY star on his own, and then does it agan in the surprisey goodness when you get the magic number, thats right!i win. I don't need you're strategy guides (mostly, sometimes i NEED them, and thank you i really appreciate your effort on them all) because i won and i have commited a sin, i am PROUD of myself :D P.S: this in no ways means that i do not love gamesradar and it's strategy guides etc

    I've got 113 stars - the Loopdeeswoop galaxy (one of the Trial Galaxies) was a nightmare for me. I'm useless at raysurfing!

    By the way, after you finish the Loopdeeswoop galaxy, there's a Sling Star next to the penguins that you can use to fly round the course and pick up any Star Bits you missed.
