96 Exit & All Castles

Grab Yoshi here if you are attempting VD1 wings and/or VD2 clip, otherwise use the No Starworld strat below.

No Starworld

Flying lower brings more foreground objects into view and makes it easier to adjust flight speed to 51. Flying higher is recommended for beginners, especially considering the goomba rain spawns from the top of the screen.

95 Exit, No Cape

In 95 exit, grab fire here in order to kill Morton quickly.

No Cape, No Starworld

Star Strat

If entering the stage as fire mario, grab the star from the roulette block to clear the end of the stage easily.

Fire Flower Grab

If entering the stage as small mario, grab fire from the roulette block in order to kill Morton, Ludwig and Roy quickly.

Alternatively doing it scrolless is slightly less optimal but seems a little bit easier. This also shows the small mario yoshi grab, also slightly slower but useful to be familiar with rather than turn back for the midway if you go too far which is easily done.

Blue Shell Strat

This is an advanced strat, as the blue shell throw can be pretty tricky. The yellow shell bounce at the start only saves about 0.3 seconds and can be omitted.

Fastest Strat

The fastest way to clear the level. The fire grab doesn't lose time, however the jump at the end is finicky and is required in order to be faster than the blue shell route.

Under Bro Strat

The jump under the hammer bro after the roulette block has a fairly small window.

Pipe Fly

Spam cape spins in the underground section to manipulate the camera and make the pipe fly setup consistent. A turnback might be needed on the way up to the 3-Up Moon.
