[edit] Mission 6

Track=Luigi's Mansion

Character=Mario
Kart=Standard Mario
Objective=Perform 4 power-slide turbo boosts in 1 lap

[edit] Boss Mission

Track=N/A
Character==Yoshi
Kart=Standard Yoshi
Objective=Knock Big Bully off the stage with Mushroom Boosts
Advice= Time the start like on any normal track and then get an item box for triple mushrooms. Use each of them to hit Big Bully and he should get knocked off the stage.

[edit] Missions Set 2

[edit] Mission 1

Track=Delfino Square
Character=Wario
Kart=Standard Wario

[edit] Mission 3

Track=Donut Plains 1(SNES)
Character=DK
Kart=Standard DK
Objective=Drive through all 5 numbered gates in order
Advice= Be sure to hit the Mushroom leading to the 2nd gate as you'll need it to get through the grass. There are other Mushrooms scattered about the track near other gates so hit them if you can.

[edit] Mission 4

Track=Luigi's Mansion
Character=Luigi
Kart=Standard Luigi
Objective=Destroy all 5 Item Boxes
Advice= The Item Boxes are moving targets, but will stay on a direct path in the course. You get a Mushroom for each item box you "catch". Use them to catch the other ones faster.

[edit] Mission 5

Track=Cheep Cheep Beach
Character=Peach
Kart=Standard Peach
Objective=Collect all 20 coins
Advice= If you're experienced enough with her, use Peach's great drifting ability around the sweeping turn. You can get by without this though. On the boost ramp, hold up on the D-pad to come down quicker as there are 3 coins on the other side of that ramp.

[edit] Mission 6

Track=Desert Hills
Character=Wario
Kart=Standard Wario
Objective=Use Bob-ombs to destroy all 5 Pokeys
Advice= Avoid the Pokeys as you use Bob-ombs to destroy them. It's best to be stationary when you launch the Bob-ombs and be wary of the blast radius.

[edit] Mission 7

Track=Luigi Circuit(GCN)
Character=Toad
Kart=Standard Toad
Objective=Drive through all 10 numbered gates in order
Advice= Remember to take the long way around with the boosts on the first major sweeping turn. On the main straightaway, there will be 2 sets of 2 gates. When going out, head to the outside(left) and you'll want to be on your left at the same point coming back.

[edit] Mission 8

Track=Baby Park(GCN)
Character=Peach
Kart=Standard Peach
Objective=Perform 6 power-slide turbo boosts in 3 laps
Advice= 2 turns per lap=6 turns and 6 opportunities for a power-slide turbo boost. Just do a turbo boost in each turn. The Item Boxes give you Stars. Remember that Peach has the best Drift stat in the game so use it to "cut" the center of the turn.

[edit] Boss Mission

Track=N/A
Character=Mario
Kart=Standard Mario
Objective=Hit Eyerok's eyeball 3 times with shells
Advice= One eyeball is always open so attack that one. Once you've hit the eyeball twice, it will rise above the ground at random times as you try to hit it the 3rd time. Avoid getting flattened by the eyeball that's closed.

[edit] Missions Set 3

[edit] Mission 1

Track=Waluigi Pinball
Character=Wario
Kart=Standard Wario
Objective=Destroy all 5 item boxes
Advice= You're in the pinball area of the track so try and predict where the item boxes will go after hitting an object. You'll get a Star after you destroy each item box so try to have one going at all times for instant acceleration.

[edit] Mission 2

Track=Delfino Square
Character=Bowser
Kart=Standard Bowser Objective=Drive through all 5 numbered gates in order...backwards!
Advice= Just remember your controls are reversed when in reverse. When the road splits 2 ways, keep going straight for gate 3 as you'll come back around for gate 5.

[edit] Mission 3

Track=Luigi Circuit(GCN)
Character=Luigi
Kart=Standard Luigi
Objective=Collect all 15 coins while avoiding the Chain Chomp
Advice= Luigi has a good handling rating so use that to your advantage to make a nice, smooth, quick circle around the Chain Chomp to get all 15 coins. Ease off on the Speed on the second half of the circle as the coins will be much closer together.

[edit] Mission 4

Track=Yoshi Falls
Character=Peach
Kart=Standard Peach
Objective=Reach the finish line before Yoshi
Advice= The first Item Box you come across will give you Triple Mushrooms. Use 1 to take advantage of Peach's better weight rating to knock Yoshi off the course and the other 2 to take the inside route across the waterfall.

[edit] Mission 5

Track=Pipe Plaza(Battle Course)
Character=Yoshi
Kart=Standard Yoshi
Objective=Drive through all 8 numbered gates in order
Advice= Just go where the gates lead you(which will often be into pipes) The pipes will lead you to the next gate. Once you go through the 7th gate on the 2nd level of the course, just go off to the bottom level for gate #8.

[edit] Mission 6

Track=Moo Moo Farms(N64)
Character=Luigi
Kart=Standard Luigi
Objective=Hit Monty Moles with Shells 5 times
Advice= Get the back of your kart up to where a Monty Mole will pop out of.

[edit] Mission 7

Track=Shroom Ridge
Character=DK
Kart=Standard DK
Objective=Perform 10 power-slide turbo boosts in 1 lap
Advice= There are 10 turns where you can get a turbo boost. Avoid the cars and remember that DK has a very good Drift rating in this game.

[edit] Mission 8

Track=Twilight House(Battle Course)
Character=Mario
Kart=Standard Mario
Objective=Collect all 20 coins
Advice= Follow the path of coins and be sure to avoid banana peels. If you hit a banana peel, you'll lose some of your coins and have to get them back.

[edit] Boss Mission

Track=Baby Park
Character=Toad
Kart=Standard Toad
Objective=Beat Goomboss back to the finish line
Advice= You'll need to perform turbo boosts on every turn to have a good chance to win. When Goomboss gets in front of you, make sure you don't get hit with Goombas that he'll throw out toward you. The best way to avoid this is to glide to the other side of the track. At the end of each lap, Goomboss will grow bigger and be able to run faster. He won't throw any Goombas on the final lap, but he's extremely fast so try and set yourself up on the inside coming out of the final turn to get to the finish line as fast as possible.

[edit] Missions Set 4

[edit] Mission 1

Track=DK Pass
Character=Wario
Kart=Standard Wario
Objective=Reach the finish line before Donkey Kong
Advice= Avoid the many snowmen as you go through the course. You're essentially going backwards on the course. Item boxes will give you Mushrooms or Stars so get one when possible.

[edit] Mission 2

Track=Palm Shore(Battle Course)
Character=Yoshi
Kart=Standard Yoshi
Objective=Blast 20 crabs
Advice= Find 20 crabs and use either Green Shells or Bob-ombs to destroy them. Running into them will cause you to spin out if you have enough Speed.

[edit] Mission 3

Track=Shroom Ridge
Character=Mario
Kart=Standard Mario
Objective=Reach the finish line before the red car
Advice= There is a red car that will be moving faster than all the other cars on this track. Just try to keep to the middle of the track and be sure to pass the red car before the finish line.

[edit] Mission 4

Track=Desert Hills
Character=Wario
Kart=Standard Wario
Objective=Drive through all 7 numbered gates in order
Advice= You'll need Mushroom boosts to get the 2nd and 3rd gates as they'll be through off-road areas. Other than that, just stay on course and avoid any obstacles.

[edit] Mission 5

Track=Bowser Castle 2(GBA)
Character=Bowser
Kart=Standard Bowser
Objective=Collect all 15 coins. If you get squished by a Thwomp, you fail!
Advice= The coins are in-between Thwomps so just focus on carrying Speed while getting the coins. The more Speed you keep, the less likely it is that you'll get squished by a Thwomp.

[edit] Mission 6

Track=Choco Mountain(N64)
Character=DK
Kart=Standard DK
Objective=Destroy all 10 Item Boxes while avoiding the Fake Item Boxes
Advice= Using the bottom screen will help a great deal as Fake Item Boxes will be a solid red color on the map while the real one will be its normal color.

[edit] Mission 7

Track=Waluigi Pinball
Character=Toad
Kart=Standard Toad
Objective=Drive through all 10 gates
Advice= You're in the pinball section of the course so be alert for pinballs as you drive through the gates. The gates aren't numbered so there is no set order you have to drive through them in.

[edit] Mission 8

Track=Luigi Circuit(GBA)
Character=Luigi
Kart=Standard Luigi
Objective=Perform 9 power-slide turbo boosts in 1 lap
Advice= Find 9 turns to safely perform a turbo boost before reaching the start/finish line. Be sure to avoid puddles on the track so you don't lose a ton of Speed.

[edit] Boss Mission

Track=N/A
Character=Peach
Kart=Standard Peach
Objective=Collect all 50 coins while avoiding King Boo
Advice= It's very difficult to avoid King Boo, but as far as collecting the coins, they're in circle areas. Using Peach's great drifting ability is key here to get coins quickly. If King Boo hits you, all the coins will disappear and you'll need to hit him to get your coins back. You have 3 balloons so you can purposely fall off the map if you feel King Boo is about to steal your coins.

[edit] Missions Set 5

[edit] Mission 1

Track=Peach Gardens
Character=Peach
Kart=Standard Peach
Objective=Reach the finish line before the stray Chain Chomp!
Advice= You'll get triple Mushrooms with the first Item Box you hit. Use them to get ahead and you should be fine as long as you don't run into any obstacles.

[edit] Mission 2

Track=Frappe Snowland(N64)
Character=DK
Kart=Standard DK
Objective=Collect all 15 coins while driving backward. You fail if you hit a snowman!
Advice= Remember that the steering is reversed when driving backward. Also, you're on a snowy surface so your traction isn't as great.

[edit] Mission 3

Track=Koopa Beach 2(SNES)
Character=Toad
Kart=Standard Toad
Objective=Collect all 5 Item Boxes
Advice= The Item Boxes will not follow a standard line on the track. Get them as you can and be wary of the time limit. Don't go into the dark blue area as that's water...

[edit] Mission 4

Track=Bowser Castle 2(GBA)
Character=Bowser
Kart=Standard Bowser
Objective=Drive through all 10 numbered gates in order

[edit] Mission 6

Track=Tart Top(Battle Course)
Character=Yoshi
Kart=Standard Yoshi
Objective=Collect all 18 coins!
Advice= You will need to be in a straight line with the coins leading up to the middle in order to get the coins in the air on the 3 jumps. Yoshi has great handling and acceleration ratings so use those to your advantage.

[edit] Mission 7

Track=DK Pass
Character=Toad
Kart=Standard Toad
Objective=Drive through all 8 numbered gates in order!
Advice= You will be going in the opposite direction on the course so watch out for snowballs on the way up. They will rarely be in your direct path to the gates, but a wrong angles can be costly.

[edit] Mission 8

Track=Mario Circuit(DS Version)
Character=Luigi
Kart=Standard Luigi
Objective=Reach the finish line before Mario!
Advice= Pretty simple. It's a standard race with quite a few more hazards, but you'll get items like Triple Mushrooms and Stars with Item Boxes.

[edit] Boss Mission

Track=N/A
Character=Wario
Kart=Standard Wario
Objective=Hit Big Bob-omb with 3 Bob-ombs!
Advice= The key will be hitting Big Bob-omb for the 3rd time as there will be only 1 Item Box and it will be surrounded by his Bob-ombs. You have 3 balloons so remember that you can only get hit with a Bob-omb twice.

[edit] Missions Set 6

[edit] Mission 1

Track=Bowser's Castle
Character=Bowser
Kart=Standard Bowser

[edit] Mission 2

Track=Airship Fortress
Character=Wario
Kart=Standard Wario
Objective=Use Stars to run over 15 Rocky Wrenches

[edit] Mission 3

Track=Choco Island 2(SNES)
Character=Yoshi
Kart=Standard Yoshi

[edit] Mission 4

Track=Block Fort(Battle Course)
Character=Mario
Kart=Standard Mario
Objective=Destroy all 10 Item Boxes

[edit] Mission 5

Track=Sky Garden(GBA)
Character=Peach
Kart=Standard Peach

[edit] Mission 6

Track=Yoshi Circuit(GCN)
Character=Yoshi
Kart=Standard Yoshi
Objective=Perform 14 power-slide turbo boosts in 1 lap

[edit] Mission 7

Track=Tick-Tock Clock
Character=Toad
Kart=Standard Toad
Objective=Collect all 40 coins
Advice= This is a test of patience as every time you get hit by either of the "clock hands", you'll lose some coins. Be patient and try to take one section at a time.

[edit] Mission 8

Track=Peach Gardens
Character=Bowser
Kart=Standard Bowser
Objective=Reach the finish line before Peach
Advice= You're driving the course in the opposite direction so don't get your turns mixed up. Other than that, avoid the normal hazards for the course and beat Peach back to the finish line.

[edit] Boss Mission

Track=N/A
Character=Luigi
Kart=Standard Luigi
Objective=Use Mushroom boosts to knock Chief Chilly off the stage 3 times
Advice= This is almost like the Big Bully boss mission for the 1st missions set. You'll want to use your 2nd and 3rd Mushrooms right after Chief Chilly has regained his balance from the first shot.

[edit] Missions Set 7

[edit] Mission 1

Track=Rainbow Road(DS Version)
Character=Peach
Kart=Standard Peach
Objective=Perform 6 power-slide turbo boosts in 1 lap.
Advice= There are 6 turns that you can manage to pull off a turbo boost without much trouble. The last couple are back-to-back so stay sharp.

[edit] Mission 2

Track=Bowser's Castle(DS Version)
Character=Mario
Kart=Standard Mario
Objective=Reach the finish line before Bowser
Advice= Use any means necessary to beat Bowser back to the start/finish line. Just take care to not fall off the stage at any point.

Track=Tick-Tock Clock
Character=DK
Kart=Standard DK
Objective=Complete 2 laps within the time limit
Advice= You will have a minute and a half(1:30) to complete 2 laps around the course. Just be sure to stay on course and not hit any obstacles and you should be able to complete 2 laps with relative ease. You'll get Triple Mushrooms each time you hit an Item Box

[edit] Mission 4

Track=Mario Circuit(DS Version)
Character=Toad
Kart=Standard Toad
Objective=Hit all 30 Goombas with Shells within the time limit. Advice= You will have 2 minutes to hit 30 Goombas with Shells. You should always try to have an extra shell that isn't in use so you don't have to go back and hit an Item Box as many times.

[edit] Mission 5

Track=Wario Stadium(DS Version)
Character=Wario
Kart=Standard Wario
Objective=Collect all 20 coins
Advice= All of the coins are within the natural racing area so you will not need to go off to any specific place you aren't used to going on this track.

[edit] Mission 6

Track=Nintendo DS(Battle Course)
Character=Mario
Kart=Standard Mario
Objective=Drive through all 8 numbered gates in order
Advice= Likely the hardest non-boss mission yet. You have just 11 seconds to get through all 8 gates twice. I say twice because the gates are all in a tight circle numbered in order 1, 5, 2, 6, 3, 7, 4, and 8. Keep your speed up and drift every so often.

[edit] Mission 7

Track=Bowser's Castle(DS Version)
Character=Bowser
Kart=Standard Bowser
Objective=Collect all 12 coins. If you hit a burner, you fail!
Advice= Take it slow around the turns as you'll want to avoid hitting the crates and get yourself straight as quickly as possible. When you get to the burners, just wait for them to move away from the coins before going after them.

[edit] Mission 8

Track=Banshee Boardwalk(N64)
Character=Luigi
Kart=Standard Luigi
Objective=Destroy all 10 Item Boxes while avoiding the Fake Item Boxes
Advice= The bottom screen will show the fake ones as red while the real ones will be a bright color. Be sure to avoid the Bananas scattered around the course.

[edit] Boss Mission

Track=Mushroom Bridge(GCN)
Character=Mario
Kart=Standard Mario
Objective=Reach the finish line before Wiggler
Advice= You'll get Mushrooms and Stars with Item Boxes so grab as many of those as possible. Wiggler will get faster each lap so build up a lead early so you can keep it on the last lap.
