Tree 1-UP Tricks:
|"Duck the 1-UP"
Date submitted: Sunday, March 18, 2001
You know the 1-up that appears when you jump out of the tree third
closest to the water fall? Well, if you duck right after you jump
out, the 1-up will swirl around your head, but won't touch you. You can
also crawl around.

This really isn't a trick, but it is fun to do and it's one of the
most fun things to do outside of the castle after beating the game.
First, find the tree to the left of the entrance with the 1-up at the
top of it you get by climbing it. It may take you a couple tries to find
the tree. Now that you got that all figured out, just climb the tree,
but don't get the 1-up just yet. Set up your jump so you jump away from
the mountain, and then leap out of the tree. The mushroom will spin
around and then start to chase you. If you run like mad and long jump a
lot, the thing won't catch you. See how long you can do this. If you
distance yourself enough from the 1-up you can actually jump into the
cannon and blast up onto the roof and get the winged hat. Triple-jump
and fly around. The mushroom will follow you everywhere! I pulled this
off once, so it can be done. After you get the 1-up (or it gets you) you
can go back inside the castle to reset it. Getting the mushroom is easy
the hard part is getting the mushroom to stop chasing you without going
into the castle. It's impossible but don't let that stop you from trying
this stupid trick.
My reply: It really isn't that hard if you
can get the 1-UP stuck somewhere! Try the "extended"
version of this trick below...
|"Dark World with a Twist of Homing Mushrooms"
Date Submitted: Friday, September 29, 2000
When you're outside, do the trick where you get the mushroom to
follow you. Long jump over the fence into the (emptied) moat (you have
to be really fast because you fluctuate when you land in the moat).
Now run along the bottom till ya get to the area that leads into the
pond. Here's the tricky part: hook a quick long jump into the
pond. If successful, the mushroom will get stuck in the wall. Now go into
the Dark World, wait a couple seconds, and the
mushroom will start banging into the walls trying to get at you. It is
VERY hilarious. When you go out of the doors you'll get the mushroom.
More details: After shooting to the castle roof,
immediately go and get the Wing Cap, and again the 1-UP should get stuck,
this time in the castle tower wall. You can climb up the castle
roof, take off, fly back into the tower (fly in a clockwise loop, toward
the waterfall, so the 1-UP remains stuck in the other side of the tower),
and then climb to the very top, take off, then fly into the Dark
|"Side-Flip the 1-UP"
Outside the castle, climb the 3rd tree from the waterfall. Before the
1-up is collected, jump off the tree and run around. The 1-up will follow
you! See what you can do without collecting it (e.g. side somersaulting

- Go to the castle court yard.
- Jump on a boo.
- See how many times you can bounce on the boo without touching

This trick is very easy, very fun, and very COOL!!! You have to have
all 120 stars to do this trick. Get the new triple jump from
Yoshi. Do a triple jump off the roof into the dried-up moat. You
should do multiple flips into the dried-up moat. When you touch
the dried-up moat you should do an extra flip. You've also noticed
that none of your power was lost.

The Visitor Says:
I found something weird outside the castle. You have to be on the
roof of the castle. Go to the [back of the right
side] of the castle roof. Go all the way to the edge, [as
close to the invisible edge of the world as possible], but don't
fall. You have to hang on the edge of the castle and then press the
"A" button or press up on the control stick. You will now
loose your hat and you will hear Bowser laughing. You will loose a life
and appear with your hat back on. This is not a useful trick, its a
weird trick because I think you get out of that course pass the invisible
wall, and since the game is not designed for that, it kills you automatically.
Coins for a 1-UP"
Hidden under the castle moat there are two coins. Get
both of the coins, and a 1-UP will appear:
See how high you can fly over the castle tower:
Try doing at least 11 consecutive back flips... i.e. when you run
forward, then pull back and jump. I've done 15 without stopping. It's
all in the timing.
Outside of the Castle, butt-stomp on the butterflies to get a
1-UP. (If you do this on the butterflies at Tiny-Huge Island, they
turn into cannon balls and explode.)
Can you wall kick off the front right corner of the castle (starting
behind the fence)?
What about the front left corner?
Obstacle course: "Castle-A":
This one was created by my sister.
- You must have all 120 stars.
- Go to the top of the castle.
- Get flight, and run toward the flag that is closest to the lake.
- While still on flat surface, take off.
- Fly through the flag, and turn sharply right.
- Fly over the roof of the entrance area.
- Fly to the right of the other flag tower (second closest to the

- Get the Wing Cap, then go to the tower facing the waterfall [but
on the front side of the castle]. Go to the top of it and
- Fly all the way around the other tower facing the waterfall.
- Fly down by the waterfall. (Can you touch it?)
- Take a sharp left and fly under the castle bridge.
- Fly over the wooden bridge.
- Fly down as close as you can to the pond. (Can you touch
- Fly over the green hill and down to the sandy area where you
started the game. (Don't touch!)
- Follow the path and dive down into the moat (over the fence).
You'll have to constantly dive to keep you're height.
- Fly under the castle bridge (again).
- Fly over or under the wooden bridge (it doesn't matter, but under
will make the next part a little harder).

- Aim a little higher than the flag on the right side of the castle.
- Fly through that flag.
- Fly through the next the flag and make a verrrrrrry sharp right.
- Fly back to the Wing Cap for more power and see how many
"circuits" you can complete. I almost did two, but I
messed up right at the end. (DANG!!!!)
This obstacle course is hard, but not too hard. It may not sound like
it, but trust me, it's HARD! It took me almost 2 months to finally

Can you make it to the very top of the castle (the top
of the tower)? If you double jump, you should
be higher than the pole at the tip of the castle.
Can you get into the "Dark World"? You have to have 120
stars, then you have to fly into the front of the castle into the area where
the roof meets the tower. I've also been able to walk
right into the glitch. It may take a few tries, but this is a
very cool glitch in Super Mario 64. If you do it right, you will
fall down into a "Dark World" where the computer thinks you are
in the opposite area than you really are, and everything, but the castle
walls (and Mario), is dark. This reminds me of the "minus one"
world in the original Super Mario Bros. game! That was a pretty cool

You will fall into this small area (ouch, that hurt!):

"Castle Top via Left"
Did you know it is possible to get to the top of the castle without
having 120 stars via the left side of the castle?!! I did
this trick not long after the game came out, so I could be the first
person to have done this trick. The way to do it is to "back
kick" up the hill and over the waterfall (on the left side
of the castle). This is very hard, since the slope is very steep in

you can jump for and grab onto the castle wall:

A few web site visitors have told me how
to get to the top of the castle from the right side of
the castle, and now I have.
Kevin Gallo said: To get to the
top of the castle without getting 120 stars from the right side!
You should be facing a green hill, with the castle wall to your [left].
Execute a triple jump starting just behind and to the right of the tree
there: the first landing spot should be the base of the green
hill. The triple jump should take you up the hill. If done
right, you should be sliding on your butt toward the castle wall. Then,
quickly jump out of your slide, and try to hit the little angled castle
wall to the left. Then, as you hit that wall, wall jump to the big
castle wall to your left. If you can pull this off, Mario has a
good chance of grabbing the castle wall. Climb up and see what
Another visitor said: When you first start the game, go up to
the path, make a right and follow the path across the bridge and head
for the last tree. Start doing a triple jump, making sure your second is
just right at the corner before the hill goes up vertically. The third
jump should get you to the top of the hill, and you'll start
sliding. Jump, and with luck, you'll grab the top of the castle
wall. Yoshi isn't there yet, but you can get three extra lives and a
flying cap to play around with.

stars). Here are some screenshots from a few fun little flights I've

|"How to Walk on
See the "Walk on Water"
Put Mario in one of the places shown below (right where the steep
ground meets the water), then rotate the camera until Mario is walking on
water. You may have to play around with the camera settings to get
it to work. Try both Mario
Cam and Lakitu Cam, and zoom in and out.
Note: You can't really walk on the water very much, because
you'll probably fall into the real water. You can try walking along
the edge of the pond, but this is tricky when you can't see it!
