Toad Town Walkthrough

Destroyed Toad Town

1 On the next screen, you'll fight a Wave Battle with two groups of 4 Goombas. Continue ahead until you arrive in Toad Town.
2 In Toad Town, you'll encounter a Paper Macho Goomba. You'll fight it in a real-time battle, so be prepared.
Hit the seal on its back to deactivate the seal. After that, it will become vulnerable to damage, so keep hitting it until it is defeated.

Before destroying the seal, if you hit the Goomba anywhere else, it won't do any damage, so be careful!
3 Continue to the back-left corner of Toad Town. You'll find a door with legs sticking out. Pull out a Red Shy Guy, and it will tell you about the sewer entrance to Peach's Castle. Interact with the sewer to hear about another Red Shy Guy that Mario needs to rescue.
4 Toad Town - FirstShyGuy.png
To the left, you can see the other Red Shy Guy in the yard of a house. Go through the house. The door is locked, so jump on the shelf and hammer the window to open it.
5 In the yard, defeat the Paper Macho Goomba. Defeat it to rescue the Red Shy Guy and hear a hint about opening the sewer.
6 Continue to the red brick building on the far right side of Toad Town. Inside, jump on the box in the bottom-right corner and hold A to rescue a Spike. Hit the shelf on the right side of the room with a hammer to shake the boxes. Keep hitting it repeatedly until one of the boxes falls and creates a Magic Circle. Move the 1,000-Fold Arms to the top left corner of the brick wall and pull to the right to reveal a door.
7 Toad Town - GettingtheHook.png
In the next room, stand on the platform to the left of the pushcart and hit it with the Hammer. This will knock the pushcart to the right. Jump onto the pushcart and onto the top shelves, then across to the left to find the Manhole Hook, along with a Mushroom.

If the Goombas in this room are in the way of the pushcart, they'll get automatically defeated when it hits them!
8 Go back to the sewer and use the Manhole Hook to proceed to the Graffiti Underground.

Tips & Strategies

Reaching the 2nd Floor of the Mansion

Toad Town - Reaching the 2nd Floor.png

Two trophies can only be obtained by reaching the 2nd floor of the mansion in Toad Town, but it's not accessible normally. To reach it, hit the blue parasol next to the coffee shop to make a Magic Circle come out, then use the 1,000-Fold Arms to tear open the wall.

Next, hit the parasol again to open it back up, and jump on top of the coffee shop to the parasol to the new platform. This will allow Mario to reach Collectible Treasures No. 6 and 13!

To access Collectible Treasure No. 13, you will need to first save the owner of the mansion in Shroom City. Otherwise, the 2nd floor door to the mansion will still be locked. After you rescue him, talk to him inside on the 2nd floor and he will give you access to the door.

Buying Confetti

Toad Town - Buying Confetti.png

After you've saved the Snifit who gives Collectible Treasure No. 6, he'll also offer to refill your confetti for 300 coins. Stop by when you need a recharge!

Finding the Monty Mole

Toad Town - Monty Mole Path.png

The Monty Mole who sells Collectible Treasures No. 7 to 12 can be a bit tricky to find. If you squeeze in the gap between the tram station and the red brick building, you'll find a hidden path to a pier where the Monty Mole is waiting!

Boss Strategy Guide

Paper Macho Goomba

This mini-boss in Toad Town can be defeated in a few hits, but it can deal a surprising amount of damage. Since this is the first real-time battle of the game, it can catch players off-guard.

Be sure to destroy the seal on the first swing, before the Goomba turns around. Otherwise, it will be much harder to get a good swing in, so don't miss the chance!

After that, try to avoid its attacks while getting in enough damage to destroy it.

>>4 You do need to complete the game first in my case. As after I beat it I started going back over the Nooks and Crannies, trying to get the alternative ending. I’m not entirely sure, but it’s very like this is the case.

>>3 Are you sure all of the bosses are unlocked in the simulation? You might need to beat the game then come back to the battle room.
