Boo Ring Despawn
👀 Visual Cue:
If the two vertically aligned boos are within the red box, the first boo ring should despawn. If they are too far right, delay a bit before the boo cloud next despawns. If they are too far left, scroll the screen right after the boo cloud despawns and returns.
It is not recommended to collect the second star in the third room. In addition to being slower, collecting it adds the risk of despawning the orb at the end of the level, especially if Yoshi is present. If too many sprites are on screen (including falling Koopa shells), the orb that ends the level will not be able to spawn. If this does happen, the orb can be spawned by swimming in the water until the platform it spawns on is offscreen, and then swimming back up. With the strats shown on this page, there is no risk of an orb despawn if done properly.
96 Exit & All Castles
In All Castles, grab a backup cape from the block in the first room.

When the boo cloud is in a very precise positon, it will continue to spawn as mario moves into the area with the boo rings. If this happens, srcoll the screen right to prevent it from spawning again, as it is impossible to swim through without taking damage. This strat, done correctly, is very slightly faster than the regular despawn.
