66: Silver Stars in the Whomp Fortress:
This is the same layout as the previous level, and there really are no tricky silver stars to get.They are all pretty standard except for the one at the very top of the hill may be a little hard to see.Once you get all 5, grab your star at the top of the hill.

Give 20 coins to the Luma just after the fish tank on the mini-planet mega-run to get this hidden planet. It’s the same battle with Gobblegut as before, except this time there's tons of fire involved.Not one of the easiest battles, but at least you get a star out of it!

106: Mini-Planet Daredevil Run: Prankster Comet
For this prankster comet, you will have one life to make it through the planets. Thankfully there are two checkpoints throughout so you won’t need to start alllllll the way back at the start if you do happen to get hit. Grab the star at the end when you prove what you are made out of!


73: Bowser’s Fortified Fortress
