Impossible Pendulums, is the eighth level in the ninth world of New Super Luigi U, Superstar Road. It can be accessed upon collecting all the Star Coins in Peach's Castle.


The player starts on a platform with the level background very similar to that of The Final Battle. A few platforms and several rotating Ball 'n' Chain pendulums are just ahead along with some ? Blocks. After the first Star Coin and a swinging pendulum, more swinging pendulums and a Red Ring will appear. The second Star Coin and more pendulums are ahead. Afterwards, a Bony Beetle and a pendulum appear just before the Warp Pipe which will transport the player to rotating pendulums, the third Star Coin and the Goal Pole.

Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: Near the beginning, the player needs to jump over the first swaying pendulum and land on the platform with the first Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 2: After the Red Ring, the player needs to drop down to the platform in the middle to receive the second Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: After going through the Warp Pipe, the Star Coin will be rotating in sync with the pendulums.

Luigi Sighting

At the last Ball 'n' Chain inside the castle, the player needs to head down to the bottom right corner to find an 8-bit Luigi in a secret area.
