Ending sequence camera
After completing the game, use the Analog-stick on controller two to control the camera in the scene featuring Mario, Princess Peach, and her Toad guards. The camera is also controllable on the credits screens. Note: The second controller must be plugged in before the Nintendo 64 is turned on.

Change Mario's appearance
Wait until Mario's head appears on the opening screen. Press [A] and use the hand that appears to grab and stretch various parts of his face. Press [B] to make Mario's head smaller. To keep a previously stretched piece in that position, hold [R] and select another piece to change.

To make Mario look like a baby, grab his cheeks with the hand and put them behind his nose so the mustache does not appear. He will resemble how he appeared in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island on the SNES.

Hold [R] and press [B] when Mario's head appears on the opening screen. Stretch his cap down, his mustache up behind his nose (which you should stretch up), his ears behind his head, and his mouth up to make him look like a baby.

To make Mario look like a hillbilly, pull his mustache up as far as possible, then put his ears behind his head. Next, pull his lip up all the way. Then, pull his nose to the left as far as possible. Finally, pull his hat down all the way.

To make Mario look like a pirate, Take the left side of his mustache, pull it up as far as possible, then cover his eye. Next, take the other side of his mustache and move it behind his nose, just until his nose is covering all of his mustache except the bottom. Finally, pull his hat down until you cannot see his left eye.

To make Mario disappear under his hat, hold [R] and press [B] until he is as small as possible. Then, put his mouth up as far as possible. Put his left ear to the right as far as possible, and do the same thing to his right ear. Next, put his hat as far down as possible, then press [B]. If done correctly, Mario will be completely hidden under his hat.

To make Mario look fat, pull his mouth halfway down. Then, put his ears behind his back. Pull his cheeks on the left diagonally left and his cheeks on his right diagonally right. Finally, pull his nose down slightly.

To make Mario resemble an army sergeant, pull his cap down as far as possible, then pull the left and right side of his mustache over his eyes. Swing his ears behind his head. Then, pull his lips up and out to your left (his right).

To see Mario sleeping with his eye's open, pull his hat down all the way. When Mario starts sleeping, his eyes should be open.

To make Mario look like an alien, pull his nose all the way down. Then, pull his mustache behind his nose. Pull his ears all the way out. Finally, stretch his cap all the way up.

To make Mario look like he is wearing sunglasses on, pull his mustache all the way up as far as possible. Then, pull the top of his face down until the eyes go behind the mustache.

Easy health refill
When Mario's energy is low, find water, swim underwater, then get some air. Another technique is to keep collecting coins.

Hidden extra life mushroom
After getting a total of three stars, enter the room with the painting of the sunken ship. Turn to the left of the entrance. Once in the room, press [C-Up] to look around. Look carefully to see a black square in the wall near the ceiling. Perform a double jump and climb into it. An extra life mushroom will come out. Note: Make sure to choose the square to the left of the entrance. The one on the right will lead you to the Castle's hidden aquarium.

After emptying the moat in front of the castle, use the ramp to walk down into it. Go under the bridge and press [C-Up] to look up to see two yellow coins. Perform a wall kick to get both the coins. Once you get both coins, an extra life mushroom will drop from above. This trick takes practice, and you may want to do a double jump and then a wall kick, as the coins are very high.

Use the following trick for another way to get the two yellow coins. If you have collected all 120 stars, cannonball yourself to the top and get the flying hat. Jump of the castle and fly under the bridge to get the first coin. Swing around in order to get the last coin. Then, pound ground to land so you can get the extra life.

Go to the first door on the left in the castle that does not have a number on it. Enter it and jump into the painting. Select any level and go to the cannon by the Chain Chomp's territory. Jump onto the tree just behind it, then do a handstand to get an extra life.

Extra life from tree
Go outside the castle, near the waterfall. Climb the third tree from the waterfall. Do a handstand on top of the tree to get an extra life. Enter the castle's first floor. Then, return outside and climb the same tree. Do another handstand for another extra life. Repeat the trick as needed.

Extra lives near Yoshi
Go to where Yoshi is located. Look at the wall to find some extra lives.

Easy lives
Enter the castle and go up the stairs all the way to the right. Enter the room and jump through the painting on the right. Go through the level collecting fifty or more coins and complete the level to get an extra life. This may be done as many times as needed as you will not lose a life if you fall off the track. Note: Hit the blue coin switch first to get fifty coins much easier.

Go into the basement after you have unlocked it. Leap into the picture of the fire with a face on it. After you have retrieved the first two stars, you will make a box appear above a platform off to your left from the beginning of the level. Open the box and you will get a turtle shell. Ride the shell around the lava to find plenty of extra life mushrooms.

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.

Obtain all 120 stars and go outside the castle. Climb inside the cannon opening that is now located where the grating was near the Fish Pond. Aim to land Mario onto the roof, where he will meet Yoshi. He will speak to Mario, award a 100 life bonus and a triple-jump move, and quickly leave.

When you start the game, you will see the castle . Go to the right side of the castle . Start from the first tree closest to the castle. Stand next to the tree and run forward, then press [A]x3 to do a front flip, then kick off the castle, then get to the grass wall that stands next to the castle, Keep doing the same thing until you get to the top of the castle, where you will find Yoshi.
Alternate triple jump
Obtain all 120 stars and use the cannon to see Yoshi. Mario will be able to perform a different triple jump after you talk to Yoshi. Instead of doing a flip while both feet are sticking out straight, Mario will do a real flip crouched together with sparkles. The sparkles will protect Mario from damage when triple jumping off a high place.

Superman triple jump
Get to a location where there is a long opening in front of you. Run and do your first jump, then your second jump. When you do your third jump, instead of just pressing [A], press [A] + [B] at the same time. Mario should make the same "hoohoo" as the second jump. He will jump as high as a normal third jump and appear as if he is flying, with his arms straight out. This works against enemies. Note: If you use the normal triple jump to get to the top of the picture in the water level to make the water to the top, this technique works much easier.

Backward long jump
Run and press [A] + [Z], then release [A] but not [Z]. When Mario lands, press [A], but keep [Z] held the entire time. When he lands again, press [A] and pull the Analog-stick [Back]. Mario should move slightly backwards. When he lands again, press [A] and pull the Analog-stick [Back]. He will jump straight back. You can do this as many times as desired. You can also long jump in the same spot. Do one long jump, and hold [Z] and just press [A] when he lands. Do not touch the Analog-stick, and he will eventually long jump in the same spot.

Hold [Z] + [Down].

Spin kick
Hold [Z] then press [B].

Cannonball jump
Go outside Princess Toadstool's castle. Run to the pond and quickly press [Z] + [A].

Backflip dunk
Go outside Princess Toadstool's Castle. Go to the pond, turn and position your back towards the pond. Then, press [Z] + [A].

Non-stop backflips
Crouch with [Z], then press [A], but do not release [Z]. Mario will do his double backflip as usual. Time it correctly to where he lands, then press [A] again, but keep [Z] held. Then when he lands, press [A], and keep [Z] held, then he will land. Then, press [A]. You can repeat this as many times as desired.

Never ending backflips
Hold [Z] and press [A], then press it again every time you hit the ground. Note: This requires practice.

Change view while flying or swimming
To change views when flying, et a winged cap and take off. Hold one of the "C-buttons". To change view while swimming, jump in water then hold one of the "C-Buttons".

Flying cap
Get this get nine stars and defeat the first Koopa level. A light will appear from the ceiling in the main area in the castle after the Koopa level. Look directly at the light to reach the flying cap level. Fly straight down to the platform and land. Step on the red button.

Steel cap
Go to the caves level in the other part of the castle. First, make a left then super jump to the other side and open the door. Turn right and follow the path. Super jump to where the huge boulders are located. Reach the top of where the boulders are dropping from. Go through the door and step on the elevator. When the elevator stops, follow the path to the under ground sea. Find the sea dragon and get on his back. Execute a super butt stomp on his back, then get on his head. Lead him to the part of land that contains the red outlined blocks and jump on them. Then, go through the door and run to the other stream. Try not to fall in the water. Jump from land to land until reaching the green switch. Stomp on the switch to get the steel cap.

Invisibility hat
Run through the hall that is flooded and has an unmarked door. Enter the door and find the location where there are two pillars in the water. Super butt slam on both of them. After the water drains, follow the arrows that leads to another room. Go through the door, then find the square hole in the ground. Enter the hole and complete the rest of the level to find the hat.

Mario wearing sunglasses
At the screen where Mario's face can be altered, press [B], then hold [R] and pull Mario's cheeks up as far as possible and keep them that way. Mario will look like he is wearing sunglasses.

Mario hangs on and dies
Get 120 Stars, jump in the cannon and shoot onto the castle. Run on the right side of the castle until you get to an invisible wall. On the right side, there will be the castle's edge and an invisible wall. Walk slowly and try to hang on the cliff between the castle's edge, the grass hill, and the invisible wall. If done correctly, within three to five tries, Mario will lose his hat (it will still be with you) and Bowser will laugh. You will lay down on the drawbridge with one less life.

Stop the clock level
To stop the clock level on the third floor of the castle, jump in at exactly 12 o'clock

Go in at 12, 3, 6, or 9 o'clock.
