  • Mallow [12]: HP (after star)
  • Mario [15]: SP (after Corkpedite)

- Get underneath Star in the Volcano, jump and then IMMEDIATELY OPEN THE MENU!

 Menu
Switch Geno -> Peach
Equip Mario & Peach swap accessories (Attack Scarf (ジャンパースカーフ) on Peach to get Exp. Booster (あなたをこえたくて) on Mario)

If you don't have 3+ ice bombs (こおりだま) and at least 1 Fire Bomb (かえんだま) for Axems:
Peach & Mario swap armor (Work Pants (ばっちいパンツ) on Mario to get Super Suit (スーパージャンパー) on Peach)

- Kill 8 enemies (11 exp per enemy)   
- For 3rd room w/ star, hold up in the corner until skeleton on the left walks toward you, then straight jump up
- It's ok to miss some enemies if your movement is a little off. 
- You want 8 enemies to guarantee Mario will be level 15 for Czar Dragon, which is optimal. If he is only 14 for Czar and Axems the run can still go on.
- Shocker may be on the 2nd page of Peach's specials now. If so, it will cost 2 FP per use (but you still need 8 FP stocked to use it).
- In fireball room after star runs out, hug leftmost wall for good alignment, and then just jump across (you can't get hit)
- Get flower in room with save box if you have 28 or less
- In room before Corkpedite, hug rightmost wall and jump over

Mario and Peach swap armor (Work Pants (ばっちいパンツ) on Peach)
Peach: Exp. Booster (あなたをこえたくて)
Geno: Feather (ドドのはね)
Switch Bowser -> Peach
Peach -> Geno


- Use Maple Syrup (メイプルシロップ) in the menu if you're low on Ice Bombs for Czar and aren't confident in Super Jumps, especially if you used Geno Blast for Corkpedite.
- If you accidentally get into an encounter with a Stumpet, you cannot run. Have Mario untimed attack Mite (or Ice Bomb if you have a freebie), Geno Whirl (ジーノカッター) stumpet, Bowser defend, and Mario attack Mite after Valor Up. Do not play the Lucky Yoshi egg minigame.
- Talk to Hinopio from the upper-left to enter his cave, don't buy anything, then proceed across the bridge...

You MUST have at least 1 Ice Bomb for Axem Rangers if you do not have a Fire Bomb.
If you failed to follow the EXP route perfectly until this point, Mario will not be Level 15 for Czar. However, it's faster to just continue the run without trying to fix your EXP.
Czar Dragon has a 20% evasion rate according to the SMRPG patcher. May not translate to actual miss chance.
It's always good to block Czar physicals.

*The Rock Candy freebie strat conserves an Ice Bomb, which is more useful on Gunyolk.
**If Mario deals 502 damage or more to the Axem Ship with his first 2 punches (very likely at Level 15), you do not have to time Koopa's final attack (saves ~0.6 seconds). However, you must be confident that you can perfectly time Mario's final attack.
***If you don't have Fire/Ice, do a second round of Ultra Jumps and heal accordingly.

Always finish phase 1 of the battle with Bowser or Geno. If you finish it with Mario, you will not have enough turns to attack before the 2nd breaker beam, which your party will not survive. (If you mess this up and finish phase 1 with Mario, you can attack the ship twice with Bowser and do ~56 Super Jumps at level 15 or ~63 at level 14, but this is a big time loss.)

You can complete this fight if Mario is level 14, but in phase 2, both Mario and Bowser must be alive and you absolutely must time all of your attacks perfectly.

Axem Red has a 10% evasion rate according to the SMRPG patcher. May not translate to actual miss chance.
