Cheats, Tips and Shortcuts

Welcome to the inevitable cheats page which every site sector has.  This could be a long list as the last cheat page (for Super Mario 64 DS) had over 200 cheats and glitches on it!  This does include corner cutting.

Tricks (OK cheats)

Dodge a blue shell (1)- Hit an item or obstacle as it is about to hit.

Dodge it another way- Use a star, boo or bullet bill

Dodge blue shell (3)- Go into an automatic transition point like the airship fortress cannon.

Avoid blue shell for one lap- Fall into water before it hits.  If it sees you again though, it will attack!

Dodge red shell- Hit banana as it is about to hit.

Dodge red shell (2)- worked once only in past.  Go far enough off the track, like in the Luigi's Mansion graveyard. When I tried, it waited at the gate then attacked as I drove onto the track again after a short while!

Annihilate rival for a few seconds (about 20 seconds)- To get rid of those really annoying better computer players in Grand Prix, just lay a trap at the end of a jump.  If they hit it and fall, they could go down to eighth for a long time, ridding you of an annoying computer controlled pest for part of the race!

Auto-shortcut- To automatically ace a tough shortcut, use a bullet bill while on the ramp to the shortcut or in it.  You will then automatically complete the shortcut.

Quick turn- Hold A+B and move the control pad to rotate while still.

Large jump- Hold R when in the air after a large jump.

Massive jump- Hit the R button when in the air after going off a jump as well as use a mushroom at the jump.

Odd trick- If you use a bullet bill when in front of the pendulum in Tick-Tock Clock, you go straight through it!  Same with the red clock hand and either a bullet bill or star.

Shortcuts (intended)

Delfino Square- Jump the gap to the pier.

Delfino square- After the bridge, there is an alley you can go down to save time and pass rivals.

Desert Hills- Boost to the left of the pyramid.

DK Pass- Go up the mound of snow near the part where you go down the mountain.  You will also receive a rare item, a star or triple mushrooms!

Tick Tock Clock- Ride the cog at the last straight for extra speed.

Mario Circuit- Cut across the sand near the venus fire traps (fire breathing piranha plants).

Wario stadium- Boost through the muddy part with the flames

Peach Gardens- Take the right narrow route around the flowerbed in the second flower part of Peach Gardens.

Bowser Castle- Go all the way around the spinning room.

Mario Circuit 1- Cut across the last patch of sand.

Donut Plains- After the bridge, shroom through the gap in the barrier.

Mushroom Bridge- Boost across the hill after the first tunnel.

Choco Island 2- Mushroom boost through the gap in the wall.

Banshee Boardwalk- Go left in the Haunted House and hop the gap.

Sky Garden (1)- jump the first ramp with a mushroom.

Sky Garden (2)- Jump the second ramp or third one.

Sky Garden (3) Jump across the clouds near the last vine bridge.

Yoshi Circuit- Boost through the first gap in the wall you come to.
