This is how to beat super mario 64 with only 16 stars.

PLEASE either rate or comment on my instructables!

First start a new game and get eight stars if your choice. Now go and beat mean ol' bowser.

Step 1: More Stars!

Now go and get another 7 stars ( I got them from Lethal lava land and sand land).
Heres where things get tricky. grab the bunn in the basement but don't take the star. Pick him up and go to the door into the basement.
Now go to the door and drop the bunny into the front of the door. Mario should apear inside the door. get down on his knees and turn towards the bunny. Now put it down again.
You should be inside the room with bowsers door in it , with the bunny! Now do the same thing on bowsers door. Here's the link to a youtube video of it


Step 2: Bowser 2

Now you should be in bowers second room. Go beat bowsers sub level and jump into bowsers room.
Now go through it as you normally would. You have 2 keys! unfortunatley you're stuck in this room. no problem! Go to the sub level and exit level. You're out!

Step 3: This Is the Hardest Part

What you need to do is a backwords long jump. first do a long jump but hold Z and the stick backwords. As soon as you land press A again. repeat this up the steps like in the video.


Step 4: Endless Stairs

DO the same thing on the endless stairs, but to the side.
Like in this video


Beat bowser and... You're done!

Thanks for watching!
i played it out on the nin46.<br/>i had all the 120 stars.<br/>i got a new secret star for you guys:<br/>in the first sliding level(in the star of the center of the castle, up and then go to right.the right photo is the good one) you need to get down in less then 21 seconds.<br/>and in the level where that stupid monkey taker your cap, somewhere is a wall of stone where you can jump in.<br/>walk with your shoulder at the walls and if you see it moving, jump in it and finish the other sliding level<br/><h2>)gl with it(</h2>
I beat the game with 120 stars too. :P
And me
Backwards long jumping is not the hardest part, the hardest part is the final batle with Bowser during the third stage (star broken arena.) Backwards long jumping is fun, but once you do it too much you have to reset your Nintendo 64 as it stops allowing you to perform it.
Well backwards long jumping itself is easy, but doing it properly for the glitch is extremely hard. I for one beat bowser on my second try, it wasn't that difficult.
It gets harder the more you do it for some reason (and I mean harder for the game not you.)
Seen it before. How about with no stars in five minutes ( possible )
How?<br />
Just look up Mario 64 speed runs on youtube.
TAS&nbsp;videos are always amusing to watch. <br />
Is this for ds or 64? or both?
64, in the ds version they fixed the glitches.
I had almost all the stars..... But i sold my 64 :(
I have 36 stars :-D
where did you get that level map! that's awesome! please private message me!
