Purple Comet
Purple Comets are Prankster Comets that first appeared in Super Mario Galaxy. They are randomly found at any standard galaxy containing an applicable star - in this case, one that involves the collection of 100 Purple Coins. They only appear after beating Bowser's Galaxy Reactor. They hit the following Galaxies:
  • Good Egg Galaxy (Purple Coin Omelet: Mario must grab 100 Purple Coins as he goes around the Pear, Rock, and Egg planets.)

  • Battlerock Galaxy (Purple Coins on the Battlerock: Mario must make his way through the the Battlerock and grab 100 purple coins. The Gearmo at the end will award Mario a Power Star for doing so. If a Purple Coin is missed, it counts as a failure.)

  • Sea Slide Galaxy (Purple Coins Seaside: Mario must scour the Sea Slide, grabbing 100 Purple Coins on his way. No Purple Coins appear in the water itself, and the island at the centre does not contain any. The Bee Suit is available for use.

  • Dreadnought Galaxy (The Battlestation's Purple Coins: Mario must grab 100 Purple Coins on his way through the Cannon Fleet Path on the Dreadnought. At the end, a Gearmo comments on Mario's performance and this can spell whether Mario gets a Power Star or loses a life.
