 BOSS BATTLE: Croco 2 (750 HP)

Party: Mario, Mallow, Geno
Equips: 
Mario: Punch Glove (パンチグローブ) (recommended), Work Pants (ばっちいパンツ), Jump Shoes (かいてんシューズ)
Mallow: Cymbals (シンバル), Work Pants (ばっちいパンツ), Fearless Pin (きょうふふせぎバッジ)
Geno: Finger Shot (フィンガーショット), Work Pants (ばっちいパンツ), Fearless Pin (きょうふふせぎバッジ)


Turn 1:
- Geno: Attack (~64)
- Mario: Jump (ジャンプ) (28)
- Mallow: Energizer (ツヨクナール) Geno if freebied during Bowyer; Attack otherwise (~38)
Rest of turns:
- Geno: Attack
- Mario: Jump (ジャンプ) (or Attack if out of FP)
- Mallow: Attack


Guidelines:
- You can block Croco's dash attack and Chomp.
- Attacking with Mario (instead of Jumping) is both faster and does more damage. However, it is prone to missing. Use at your own risk. Mario should also Jump at least once (usually on Turn 1) to guarantee you have enough Jump power for King Calamari. However, if Mallow is double bombed and you got below average damage rolls going into the third round of attacks, it may be worth attacking with Mario to try and push Croco into Phase 2. You must deal 351 total damage for this to occur.
- It may be worth reviving Mario after Croco's 1st turn if he immediately dies to a bomb, simply because Jump cannot miss. However, because Mario's Jump contributes the least amount damage to the fight, this is likely not worth it.
- If you use the Energizer on Geno, it's definitely not worth reviving Mario.

There is a 25% chance Croco will drop a Flower Box.



- Go backwards and towards the railroad tracks
- If you have a deficit of Frog coins, take a detour on the bottom level of the room with the Star in it, and run to the end of the tracks.

- Use star, kill 9 bombs (5 exp per enemy) (or 8 bombs if you got 15 dogs in Bandit's Way and 8 rats in Kero Sewers) - example

- Backtrack to get 150 Coin chest. Beware the Sparky who will try to impede your path (standing on the box when you first enter will make you immune to an encounter until he spawns for a 2nd time)
- Jump at Punchinello after you pass the bomb on the right to avoid being pushed back

 BOSS BATTLE: Punchinello (1200 HP)
 
Party: Mario, Mallow, Geno
Equips: 
Mario: Punch Glove (パンチグローブ) (recommended), Work Pants (ばっちいパンツ), Jump Shoes (かいてんシューズ)
Mallow: Cymbals (シンバル), Work Pants (ばっちいパンツ), Fearless Pin (きょうふふせぎバッジ)
Geno: Finger Shot (フィンガーショット), Work Pants (ばっちいパンツ), Fearless Pin (きょうふふせぎバッジ)


Turns:
- Geno: Attack (~90)
- Mario: Attack (~64 with Punch Glove, Jump otherwise)
- Mallow: Energizer (ツヨクナール) Geno if freebied during Bowyer and Croco 2; Attack otherwise (~60)


Guidelines (assuming no Energizer, assuming perfect block of all physicals):
- You can block the bomb explosions (same frame window for all bomb types) and Punchinello's jab.
- If Punchinello uses Sandstorm early, Mario can able juice himself. Don't bother with this after the turn where he summons the Bob-Omb enemies.



- Pick the 2nd option to skip minecart instructions.

- In the 2nd screen of the minigame, you can take the bottom path instead of the top path (extra coins aren't needed, and bottom path is slightly easier)
