As the course which requires no stars to play, Bob-omb Battlefield is the first course in both Super Mario 64
and its DS remake
. Bob-omb Battlefield is well known for it's cast of classic Mario characters, giant mountain, floating platform and music which spans a number of other levels. Despite being the first level, transportation comes in many flavors. The playable character can traverse the course on-foot, while riding a Koopa shell, flying with the Wing Cap, through teleportation or by being blasted by a cannon.
Aside from the star achieved through collecting 100 coins, Bob-omb Battlefield has the following stars:
|Star No.||Super Mario 64||Super Mario 64 DS|
|1|| Big Bob-omb on the Summit ||Big Bob-omb on the Summit |
|2|| Footrace with Koopa the Quick ||Footrace with Koopa the Quick |
|3|| Shoot to the Island in the Sky ||Five Silver Stars!|
|4|| Find the 8 Red Coins ||Big Bob-omb's Revenge |
|5|| Mario Wings to the Sky ||Mario Wings to the Sky |
|6|| Behind Chain Chomp's Gate ||Find the 8 Red Coins |
|7|| N/A||Behind Chain Chomp's Gate |
- There exist a number of logs in the area where the star for collecting all 8 red coins can be found. Each of the logs can be ground pounded, but nothing happens as a result.
- In Super Mario 64, it is possible to carry Big Bob-omb all the way down the mountain. However, as soon as he is dropped, he jumps back to the top of the mountain.
