The Stone Cyclone Galaxy is a galaxy in the game Super Mario Galaxy 2. It is a remaster of the Cyclone Stone from Beach Bowl Galaxy. Main differences include the addition of Silver Stars and switches that slow down all moving objects. It is located in World S.
Silver Stars On The Cyclone
In this mission, Mario must grab five Silver Stars in order to gain a Power Star. These Silver Stars are easy to reach due to their location, though. The first one is right at the start by an Octoomba. The second one is on a Tox Box's path. For the third star, Mario has to head to a stone loop and then go up the ramp to get it. He must stand in the safety spot to protect his life if the Tox Box guard is moving at him. Standing on the safety spot's edge will cause death as the Tox Box "bites" Mario, however. After the third star, Mario must make his way across the paths to the final two stars. Upon their obtainment, Mario will get the star he sought.
Tox Box Speed Run
In this mission, Mario has to mosey onto the end of the Cyclone Stone; the Silver Stars have been removed. He has no time switches on his side anymore, and he is in a time crunch, but can use the timers to extend his remaining time. Once he smashes the crystal at the end, the timer will stop.
Green Star Missions
Both of the Green Stars are found in Silver Stars on the Cyclone.
Green Star 1
Green Star 1 is located above the stone ring before the following path. A triple jump and a spin can get to it, but watch out for the Tox Box on the path. Luigi is recommended for this one.
Green Star 2
Getting the second star is harder. To grab this star, Mario must do a long jump off the Ending Area and then perform a Star Spin for more height in order to grab the star. This is a now-or-never moment once the player jumps off the final platform. If positioned wrong or if you do not spin, Mario will perish in the Black Hole at the center.
The galaxy is almost identical to the Stone Cyclone planet from Beach Bowl Galaxy, however the enemies and objects move four times faster. As before, it contains Tox Boxes and Thwomps. Blue switches that slow time are scattered across the course, some replacing 1-ups. These blue switches are also the same as those seen in the third star of Clockwork Ruins Galaxy . The Comet Medal is located near two sideways-moving platforms near the beginning of the level. It can be reached by Long Jumping from a raised platform near the first Thwomp.
- Curiously, Cosmic Mario's theme plays in the comet mission.
- The comet star requires the most Comet Medals in the game excluding Grandmaster Galaxy, with a whopping 48 required to spawn it.
